Our invention relates to display stands com?
posed of paperboard or corrugated board for the
display of articles in a store, primarily for the
purpose of advertising the articles and making
an “inspection and a selection by the purchaser
easy.
It is an object of our invention to provide a
display stand which may be shipped in a ?at
tened condition and which may be erected by the
receiver with the minimum amount of difficulty.
It is a further object of our invention to pro
vide a display stand which is extremely strong in
its set up condition and will hold articles for
display purposes of relatively great weight. Our
display stand is preferably composed of corru
gated board, but we do not intend to limit our
selves to this material since any heavy paper
board will su?ice.
.
It is a further object of our invention to pro
vide a display stand made up of a minimum
of independent units and from a minimum of
integral paper board blanks.
An object incorporated in our novel display
stand is a novel method of bracing the shelves
when the display stand is in its set up condition
whichis independent of the bracing action of the
shelves themselves.
vThese and other objects of our invention which
will be set forth hereinafter or may be apparent
v to one skilled in the art upon reading these speci
?cations, we accomplish by that certain con
struction and arrangement of parts of which we
shall now describe a preferred embodiment.
Reference is now made to the drawings which

rear wall and the upper shelf of our novel dis

Brie?y, our novel display. stand comprises a 5
standhaving an upper and a lower shelf in
stepped relation to each other and. in which the
lower shelf is formed from a portion of the front
of the stand while the upper shelf is vcomposed
of a portion of the back wall of the stand, and 10
in which both the upper and lower shelves are
independently braced by means held in position
by the side walls of the display stand. In‘the
speci?cation and claims reference to the display
stand as having shelves in "stepped" relation 15
means ‘that the display stand ‘has a series of
steps or step-like shelves which are not in verti-v
cal alignment but which are similar to stairs as
regards relative position of the shelf parts, in
other words the steps are terraced in our com‘ 20
struction.

Referring to the drawings, Fig. 1 illustrates the
blank containing side walls I and 2, a front 8
and a shelf 4 all formed as a single unit. The
back wall 8 and the upper shelf 8 are formed 25
in a single unit as is illustrated in Fig. 2.
v
The, side walls I and 2 are cut out as at ‘I
to form two distinct shelf sides 8 and 8 in stepped
relation with the upper shelf side 8 set back
from the lower shelf side 9. ‘We do not intend 30
to limit ourselves‘ to the configuration of the
side walls or of our display stand as a whole
but merely describe the preferred form illus
trated for the purposes of illustration and not
limitation.

There is a panel portion III integral with the

There is also a tab portion I8 ‘set oil.’ from the

There is also a tab portion I8 divided from the
shelf portion 8 by the score line 28.

of the back portion 8 by tape 28. We do not
wish to limit ourselves to the use of tape since
other methods of fastening may be used and

in Fig. 2 and the side and front portion shown
in Fig. 1’ can be formed as a single integral unit

It is to be understood that different forms of

in the lower portion of the side of the display claim as new and desire to secure by Letters
stand are not as deeply cut as the upper slots
24. There is a lower brace member 29 which is
20 similar to the brace 26 excepting that the end
portions 21a are cut out as at 30 to permit the
side portion 29 of the brace to be as wide as pos
sible without the necessity of cutting the slots

25 any deeper, or nearer the edge.
After the display stand has been opened up
to form a hollow rectangle and the brace 26
inserted over the ears 28 as heretofore described
and the lower brace 29 inserted in place in the
slots 25, the front shelf portion 4 is bent back
30 wardly on the score line l2 completely upon
itself so that the panel III will be positioned
against the back of the front panel 3. The lower
shelf portion 4 is then bent forwardly at right
angles to the panel III on the score line H.
35 The positioning of the lower slots 25 is such that
when the shelf portion 4 is in horizontal posi
tion parts of said shelf portion intermediate
between the front and back edges thereof as
de?ned by score lines H and M respectively will
40 rest against the upper edges of the brace 29.
The tab portion I3 is bent on the score line l4
so that it will slide down and position itself at
right angles to the shelf 4 and against the back
wall 5.
There is a panel 3| which is attached by tape

or otherwise to the front edge of the upper
portions 8 of the sides I and 2 in order to form
a front for the upper shelf. The upper shelf
portion extending from score line I‘! is bent for
wardly and downwardly on the score line I1,
so that the panel It will position itself against
the back wall 5. The upper shelf 6 is then bent
forwardly on the score line l8 until it assumes
a horizontal position at right angles to the panel
55 It. The front tab I9 is then bent downwardly
and at right angles to the shelf 6 on the score
line 20 so that it will position itself against the
back of the frontpanel 3|. The slots 24 in the
side members I and 2 are so positioned that
60 parts of shelf portion 6 intermediate between
the front and back edges thereof as de?ned by
score lines 20 and I8 respectively will rest against
the upper edges of the sides 26 of the upper
brace.
