Application December 12; 1936, Serial No. 115,453 3 Claims. The invention relates to advertising devices in which two sets of objects, printed matter, pic tures or other things seem to appear alternately , in the same place. - - The principal object of the invention is to pro vide a vdevice of this nature which is of extreme simplicity, compact, economical to manufacture and e?icient in operation. Other objects and advantages will become ap 10 parent as this speci?cation proceeds. Referring to the drawings forming a part thereof: Fig. 1 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line I of Fig. 2. Fig. 2 is a top plan view; and 15 Figs. 3 and 4 are front elevations illustrating the two diiferent effects produced as viewed by (Cl. 40-132) preferably made in the form of a slide or remov able member and has a picture I 6 on its under side. Obviously advertising matter or any other printed matter might be substituted for the pic ture. When the illuminating means I 5 is func M tioning the picture It will be re?ected on the member 9 behind the bottle and glass as illus trated in Fig. 3. _ An additional effect may be provided by ver tically disposing a sheet of translucent material 10 I‘! in the forward part of the compartment II and horizontally disposing a strip l8 of similar material which may carry suitable lettering. When this is re?ected as shown in Fig. 3 it gives the effect of a platform. Obviously the com» 15 partment l4 lends itself to the accommodation of any desired objects arranged as one may see fit ‘ in order to produce varying effects. Referring again to said drawings the device The forward wall of the compartment II which . comprises a cabinet having side walls 5, a rear _ wall 6, a bottom wall ‘I and a top wall 8. A sheet is in line with the open end of the cabinetis 20 a spectator. 2 of transparent darkened material 9 is angularly disposed between the side walls 5 and divides the cabinet into two compartments l0 and II. The lower front portion of the cabinet is open so that ‘ spectators may readily view the interior thereof. The forward .lower edge of the sheet 9 rests against a ?ange or moulding surrounding the open front of the cabinet and the rear upper edge of the sheet is supported on an angularly dis ..0 posed ledge I; which forms part of a partition extending across the upper region of the cabi net. As heretofore stated the sheet 9 ismade of _ a transparent darkened material. This might be dark colored glass or any other darkened Cl transparent material. The fact of the transpar ent material being darkened adds greatly to the e?iciency of the device both in acting as a re ?ector and as a transparent medium. Located above the sheet 9 and spaced from the 40 top wall 8 and substantially parallel thereto is a transparent supporting member l3 forming another compartment M. In the rear part of the compartment l4 above‘the transparent sup porting member l3 and the darkened transparent 45 member 9 is an illuminating means IS. The il luminating means, as illustrated, comprises a pair of incandescent bulbs. The objects to be ' re?ected on the plate 9 are suitably located on provided with a member I9 which is adapted to carry suitable advertising. This advertising will appear when the illuminating means I5 is func tioning. - , Angularly disposed mirrors 20 and 2| are posi- 25 tioned in the rear part of the compartment l4 to intensify the light given from the illuminat ing means i5. These mirrors may be omitted if desired. Openings 22 may be provided in'the top wall 8 for ventilating purposes. 30 The bottom wall 1 acts as a platform on which objects are placed to be viewed through the darkened transparent sheet 9 at the proper time. _ The objects illustrated vin this instance are a tray and a bottle. 35. Illuminating [means 23‘ are provided for the compartment 11. As illustrated this means may comprise a pair of incandescent bulbs. The back 6 of the cabinet is provided with a slide or re movable member 24 which carries a picture or‘ 40 other suitable printed matter 25. When the com partment I0 is in darkness and the illuminating means 23 is functioning the bottle and tray and the picture 25 may be viewed directly through the darkened transparent member 9 as illustrated 45 in Fig. 4. ‘ An extension 26 is located at the upper rear portion of the cabinet. The front Wall 217 of ‘this extension is formed of a member adapted to carry v the supporting member l3 as shown in Figs. 1 50 and 2. With the compartment il in darkness suitable advertising matter and this advertising 50 and the illuminating means IS in operation the matter will appear when the illuminating means _ objects will be re?ected on the darkened tramp’ 23 is functioning.
