SHOE DISPLAY SUPPORT
Hyman Sapeer, Munhall, Pa.
Application August 28, 1934, Serial No. 741,760
5 Claims. (Cl. 211-37)
My invention relates to a shoe display support, ‘piece 3 centrally intermediate of the pair of
and important objects thereof are toyprovide a
support of the character described, which is
adaptable for attractively displaying a shoe in
5 various different positions, which- embodies
means for attaching placards therewith, which
is simple in its construction and arrangement,
durable and efficient in its use, compact, attrac
tive in appearance, and comparatively inexpen
sive to manufacture.
'
'
With the foregoing and other objects in view
which will appear as the description proceeds,
the invention resides in the novel construction,
_ combination and arrangement of parts herein
' speci?cally described and illustrated in the ac
companying drawing, but it is to be understood
that changes in the form, proportions, and de
tails of construction may be resorted to that
come within the scope of the claims hereunto
20 appended.
In the drawing wherein like numerals of ref
erence designate corresponding parts throughout
the several views:
Figures 1 and 2 are, respectively, front and
' side views of a shoe display support constructed
in accordance with the invention. Figure 3 is a
sectional view on line 3-3, Figure 1.
Figures 4, 5, 6, and 7 are views illustrating the
adaptations of the device for displaying a shoe
30
in varying positions.
Figures Sand 9 are, respectively, front and
side views of a modi?ed form of shoe display
support.
‘
Referring in detail to the drawing I denotes
' the entire support, which is preferably an in
tegral bridge-like structure of considerable thick
ness and constructed from any suitable mate
rial.
The support I comprises a pair of spaced, ver
40 tically disposed legs 2, which carry, and are
joined with respective ends of, a horizontally ex
tending crosspiece 3. The crosspiece is provided
with bevelled ends 4, and the top 5 thereof is
clearance space at the rear of the former.
The inner edges of the spaced pair of legs 2
provide the walls I2 of the opening l3 therebe
tween and into which the tongue II depends.
The walls I2 are shaped to converge toward each‘ 10
other at their upper and lower ends.
The tongue l l is adapted for insertion into the
counter-portion of the shoe 9 when said counter
portion is engaged in the opening I3, as shown in
Figure 5. The engagement of the shoe by the 15
tongue II and the walls l2 provides a wedging
action, whereby the shoe will be rigidly held in
position by the support I and may be displayed
from various positions. Owing to the space
clearance rearwardly of the tongue, the counter 20
portion of the shoe will not project beyond the
plane of the rear surface of the support, whereby
the latter may be positioned to rest upon said
rear surface to display the shoe in the vertical
position, as shown in Figure 6.
25
The outer edge of each of the pair of legs 2,
is notched to provide a pair of opposed heel rests,
respectively indicated at I 4 and I5. When em
ploying the lattenth'e support I is positioned to
rest upon one edge thereof, and the heel II] of 30
the shoe 9 is positioned against the heel rest l5,
as clearly shown in Figure‘ 5. The heel rest I4 is
adapted for use with shoes having low heels,
which are further suited to the support by the
35
bevelled ends 4 of the crosspiece 3.
The construction and conformation of the in
ner and outer edges of the legs 2 provide leg bot
toms I.6 having areas of considerable extent,
whereby the support I will readily maintain its
regular vertical position.
However, the top 5,
of the support, is also of sufficient area to allow
the support to be positioned in the inverted posi
tion to carry a shoe 9 upon the leg bottoms I6,
formed with a longitudinally extending groove 6.
" The latter is disposed in the rear half portion of
as shown in Figure ‘7.
Each of the bevelled endsli of the cross piece
the top 5 and is substantially triangular in trans
3 is provided with a vertically disposed slot I1
and a transversely extending slot I8. Each‘ of
verse cross section, having a vertical front wall
1 and providing an angularly disposed heel rest
8 declining toward said front wall.
In displaying a shoe 9, with the support in the
50
vertical position, the heel ID, of the shoe, is seated
upon the angularly disposed heel rest 8 and en
l
legs 2. The thickness of the tongue is approxi
mately only one-half of the thickness of the
other parts of the support. The tongue is dis
posed at the front of the crosspiece to provide a"
K
gages the front wall 'I, of the groove 6, as clearly
illustrated in Figure 4.
A tongue II depends vertically from the cross
the legs 2 is also provided with slots, respectively
indicated at I9 and 20. The slots 19 extend along
and open at the front of the legs adjacent to the 50
lower ends of the latter, and the slots 20 are dis
posed longitudinally on the bottoms I6 of the legs.
All of the slots are very narrow and provided to
frictionally receive and hold placards 2| in the
form of price cards and the like. The relative
2
2,109,977
positions of the slots permits the convenient at
tachment of the placards regardless of the uti
lized position of the support I.
The modi?ed form of the device, illustrated in
Figures 8 and 9, differs from the preferred form
thereof only in that the crosspiece 3 has a verti
cal extension 22 having a centrally disposed re
cess 23, and provided for engaging the heel of the
shoe to render the latter less liable to displace
piece of substantial thickness having an angu
larly disposed top portion forming a heel rest, a
pair of legs joined with respective ends of said
crosspiece, a tongue of substantial thickness de
pending from said crosspiece centrally inter
mediate of said pair of legs and adapted for en
gaging the counter-portion of a shoe, the thick
ness of said tongue being approximately one~
half the thickness of said cross-piece to provide
ment from its displayed position.
The. present invention provides an inexpensive,
simple, and most e?icient device of its kind,
a space for the counter-portion of a shoe.
4. A shoe display support comprising, a cross
which is readily adaptable for displaying shoes in
15
various positions in the manner set forth.
What I claim is:
1. A shoe display support comprising, a cross
piece of substantial thickness, a pair of legs
joined with respective ends of said crosspiece,.a
tongue of substantial thickness depending from
20 said crosspiece centrally intermediate of said
pair of legs and adapted for engaging the counter
portion of a shoe, said tonguebeing of a thick
ness approximately one-half the thickness of
said crosspiece.
.25
2. A shoe display support comprising, a cross
piece of substantial thickness having an angu
larly disposed top portion forming a heel rest, a
pair of legs joined with respective ends of said
.crosspiece, a tongue of substantial thickness de
30 pending from said crosspiece centrally inter
mediate of said pair of legs and adapted ‘for en
gaging the counter-portion of a shoe.
3. A shoe display support comprising, a cross
1O
piece having an angularly disposed top portion
forming a heel rest, a pair of legs joined with
respective ends of said crosspiece, a tongue de
pending from said crosspiece centrally inter
mediate of said pair of legs and adapted for en
gaging the counterportion of a shoe, the outer
edge of each of said pair of legs being notched to
form a plurality of heel rests.
5. In combination, a shoe display support com 20
prising, a crosspiece of substantial thickness hav
ing an angularly disposed top portion forming a
heel rest, a pair of legs joined with respective
ends of the latter, a tongue of substantial thick
ness depending from said crosspiece centrally ,25
intermediate of said pair of legs and adapted ‘for
engaging the counter-portion of a shoe, said
tongue being approximately one-half the thick
ness of said crosspiece to provide space for the
reception of the counter-portion of a shoe, the 30
outer side edge of each of said ‘pair of legs being
notched to form a plurality of heel rests.
