5 ting and die scoring process and designed for
(Cl. 248-198)
nection between the rear support and the bottom
use on counters,l show cases and similar places
for displaying in retail stores small articles such

G ing the displayed articles will when empty be of
an ornamental character and enhance the at
tractiveness of the display rack.
With these and other objects .in view, the in
vention consists in the construction and novel
combination and arrangement of parts herein
after fully described, illustrated in the accom
panying drawing and pointed out in the claims
hereto appended, it being understood that vari
ous changes in the form, proportion and details
of construction, within the scope of the claims,
may be resorted to without departing from the
spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the

Referring particularly to Figs. 1 to 6, inclu
sive, of the drawing in which is illustrated a dis- 10I
play rack -provided with means for displaying
razor blade packages, the display rack comprises
in its construction an inclined front member l,
a rear inclined support 2 and Aa bottom connect
ing member 3 constituting a base for the dis- 15
play rack and hinged at its front portion to the
inclined front member and extending rearwardly
therefrom and detachably interlocked with the
inclined support when the display rack is set>
up for use. The display rack is constructed from 20
a single piece of flat material and is die cut to
form a substantially oblong blank 4 which is
scored at 5 and die cut at 6to form the rear sup
port 2. The rear support 2 is approximately U
shaped and is composed of spaced parallel sides 2
'l and a bottom connecting portion` 8 which is
provided with a central rectangular recess 9
adapted to be engagedvby an approximately T
shaped head lll of the body member 3.
The scoring 5 hinges. the sides l of the rear 30
support to the front member at opposite sides
of the upper portion thereof and the support 2
is adapted to be arranged at an angle to the
inclined front member to form a brace -or prop
for supporting the front member in an inclined 3
position for use. The die cut 6 completely sev
ers the inner edges of the support 2 from the
front member and enables the support to lswing
-on the hinge connections formed by the scor
ing 5.
The blank 4 is scored at Illa to form a hinge
connection between the bottom connecting mem
ber 3 and the lower edge of the inclined front
member I to enable the connecting member Elv to
be swung rearwardly to form a base and a con- 45
necting element for retaining the inclined sup
port in its supporting position. The blank is
die cut to form the T-shaped head lll and is
preferably provided opposite the arms I of the
head with recesses l2 forming arcuate edges and 50
adapted to slightly enlarge the space between
the arms Il and the body portion of the bottom
connecting member 3.
Tlïe straight sides 'l and the connecting bot
tom portion 8 of the rear rsupport provides an 55

that illustrated in Figs.~ 1 to 6, inclusive, and is
formed from a single piece rectangular blank 2l 5
and comprises the said front member 23, a rear4

to cause the T-shaped head of the bottom con
necting member tosnap into engagementwith
the recess 9 of the ‘support when the T-shaped
head'is placed over the recess 9 and is released.
When the T-shaped head o! the bottom con
