This invention relates generally to display ?g ures of the human body; but more speci?cally to display heads or' dummies to exhibit articles of dress and adornment and to exhibit qualities of The main object of the invention resides in the provision of a dummy-head which lends itself to special mounting on display stands resulting in a saving of space and facility of removal. Another object of the invention resides in the 10 provision of a dummy-head of the above nature which is capable of being water colored and which at the same time produces interesting and at tractive light and shade effects when illuminated 15 from the rear. These objects and other incidental ends and advantages of the invention will hereinafter be set forth in the progress of the disclosure and as pointed out in the appended claims. Accompanying this speci?cation is a drawing 2O showing preferred forms of the invention and wherein corresponding reference characters indi cate corresponding parts throughout the several views. is preferably in a vertical plane, the said rear edge “having a similar reinforcing element l2. ‘ 5 make-up and head-dress. 25 edge of skull portion H in the form of a wire or band. The rear’ edge of face portion ill] "is \dis posed inwardly of the rear of skull portion H and ‘ In accordance with the drawing: Figure 1 is a rear view in perspective of one type of dummy-head being hollow and showing rein forcing elements thereon. Figure 2 is a forward view of Figure 1 in per 30 spective, part of the face showing patches of ma terial adapted to receive water colors. Figure 3 is a cross sectional view of Figure 1 along the plane 3—3 thereof. Figure 4 is a rear View in perspective of a solid 35 or molded dummy-head partially in section show ing a counterweight. Figure 5 is a front view of Figure 4 in perspec tive showing one form of a covering therefor. Figures 6, 7 and 8 show some of the means of 4:0 mounting the dummy-head on a display plat form. In accordance with the invention and in ac cordance with the preferred forms thereof shown in the drawing, the dummy-head in Figures 1, 2, 45 and 3 is shown as being hollow and made up of wire screening. Accordingly, the dummy-head is comprised of a face portion l0 and a skull por tion H suitably secured together‘. The face por tion I9 is, provided with the usual anatomical 50 elements such as eyes, nose and mouth. The lower edge of the skull portion l l is above the bot tom of face portion l0 and is preferably in the horizontal plane in order to engage with the upper ?at surface 2| of a display platform. A 55 reinforcing element I3 is secured to the lower The planes of the lower edge of skull portion H and the rear edge of face portion [0 meet at an angle to form the engaging means for the posi tioning thereof on the upper surface 12! ‘and the vertical edge 22 ‘of the display platform. Rein forcing element I2 is secured to face portion I 0 by crimping the projecting edges of the face portion it at the rear edges "thereof therearound, while reinforcing element I3 is secured to skull portion 1 I at the lower edge thereof by similarly crimping the projecting wires of skull portion ll there around. The forward edges of skull po'rtion II are crimped around the reinforcing element H for securing the skull portion H to the face por tion It]. Reinforcing element l3 at the ends thereof is secured to reinforcing element 12 by being hooked as shown in Figure 3. Where the hollow durmny-head is not made up of wire screening, but of composition, the head 10 16 and skull portion may be integrally formed or molded so that it becomes necessary to provide a reinforcing element for the rear edge of face portion Ill only below the plane of the lower edge of the skull portion I l. The hollow dummy-head above described may 80 have its face portion covered with material which is capable of receiving water colors for purposes of enlivening the facial features. This covering may assume the form of paper patches as shown in Figure 2. It is, of course, understood that any other substitute covering for paper patches I5 is feasible, so long as the said covering will take to water colors. The hollow dummy-head thus far described is capable of producing interesting and attractive light and shade effects when illu 40 minated from the rear, especially where the dum my-head is made up of wire screening. The skull portion of Figures 1, 2, and 3 may be provided with a weight l4 preferably secured along the surface thereof to bring the center of gravity of the dummy-head more to the rear of the skull region, so that when mounted, the head will not fall off the platform. Figures 4, 5, 6, '7, and 8 show a solid dummy~ head It molded in one piece and having a rear angular cut-out illustrated by horizontal and vertical ‘surfaces l8 and I9. l9’ indicates a curved surface in place of a plane surface in order to engage with a circular or rounded platform. A weight I‘! is secured within the skull portion I6 2 2,1 17,081 for counterbalancing purposes ‘so that the dum my-head, when mounted on a platform, will not tilt forward or lose its equilibrium. Dummy-head I6 is provided with a similar covering, such as 20, to permit application of water colors to the face portion thereof. Figure 8 shows the dummy head l6 mounted on an upright 23, the said up right 23 engaging with a bore 24 therein. The dummy-heads above described can be used 10 for exhibiting ladies’ and men’s hats, coiffure, and the art of cosmeticians. The heads are mountable on platforms of manifold shapes and are designed to take up little space and to be easy of removal. 15 We wish it understood that minor changes and variations in the location and number of parts, in the construction, integration, connection and operation of the several parts, may all be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the inven 20 tion and without departing from the scope of the appended claims. 3.59 35 angle for the edge of said display platform, and a weight member secured at the rear end of the skull portion to serve as a counterbalance. 2.
