with display advertising means such as a placard.
In this manner, there is provided a combination

adapted for use in retail shops, etc.
The invention, therefore, has for its primary
object the provision of a combined device as
herein contemplated, which is simple, inexpen

Another important object is to provide a com

With the above and other objects, features and
advantages in mind, the invention resides in the
novel arrangement and combination as illustrated
in the accompanying drawing which is described
in detail in the following speci?cation. Both the
drawing and speci?cation are intended to disclose
the present contemplated form of the invention
which may be varied within the skill of the de
signer of the device.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view, partly broken, of
a device constructed in accordance with the in
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view as taken along
the line 2--2 of Figure 1.
The device, which is preferably made of sheet
metal but may be otherwise formed, as for in
stance, of stiff paper, comprises a tray or open
box 5 formed with a front wall 6, a rear wall 1,
side walls 8, and a bottom 9. The walls 6 and l

extensions are each provided with a crescent
shaped opening respectively I! and IS. The lat

scure the tray l6 when the device is viewed from
the front, further enhancing the mysterious aspect
previously mentioned.
It can be seen from the foregoing that a de- ,
sirable device has been provided for the purposes
intended. It is also apparent that the disclosed
structure may be varied in size, proportion, and
arrangement without departing from the scope
of the invention as claimed.
