ALBERT WIGGERS, OF \VEST I-IOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 447,221," dated February 24, 1891.
Application filed November 6,1890- Serial No. 370A62. (N model.)
To all whom it Hwy concern.-
. Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Trays, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a tray which is intended particularly for the purpose of exhibiting jewelry and other articles of a similar nature in show-cases or show-windows.
The novel and peculiar construction of my tray is pointed out in the following specification and claim, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a plan or top View of two of my trays placed end to end so as to form the segment of a circle, Fig. 2 is a similar View of three of my trays placed end to end so as to form a serpentine line. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of three of my trays placed end to end so as to form a semicircle. Figs. 4 and 5 are modifications.
In the drawings, the letter A designates a tray, which is composed of two side pieces a 1), two end pieces or headsc cl, and a bottom ee The side pieces a b are formed of sections of cylinder-shells having a common axis and diameters of different lengths. 0 (Z have a rectangular form, and in the example shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3 they radiate toward the common axis of the side pieces a b. The bottom e is flat, and its two sides The end pieces form sections of circles having a common center, but of different diameters, while its ends are rectilinear, and in the example shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3 are equal to the difference between the diameters of the sides. In the example shown in Fig. 4 the end pieces 0 cl are parallel to each other, and in the example shown in Fig. 5 the end pieces are in line or in the same plane one with the other.
It will be readily seen that trays of this description can be placed into'show-cases or show-windows, and that they can be arranged to form a great variety of configurationsfor instance, in a serpentineliue, as shown in Fig. 2, or in a semicircle, as shown in Fig. 3and by these means a merchant is enabled to exhibit his goods to the best possible advantage.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patentis- As a new article of manufacture, a tray composed of two side pieces formed of sections of cylinder-shells having a common axis and diameters of different lengths, flat rectangular endpieces, and a flat bottom, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
