As shown in Figure 4, the upper rear corner
of each side wall 5, is appropriately rounded to
permit of the required movement of the hinged
cover. Preferably, the beads l, and the sockets

Obviously, the aforementioned rounding of the

devices can readily be stacked upon the. usual
upper rear corners as shown in Figure 4, also
necessitates a reduction in the rear wall 6 as
shown in this ?gure. Although a completely

serving shelf without relative disarrangement,
which is of course preferable for restaurant con
