Application March-23, 1937, Serial No. 132,475
7 Claims. (Cl. 211-135)
This invention relates to display devices and
particularly to that class thereof formed from
sheet material, such as cardboard, adapted to be
erected in upright position and provided with
5 transverse shelves for the reception of merchan—
dise to be displayed.
With these ends in view, and others which will
1O
be pointed out more in detail herein, my im
provements comprise features illustrated in the
drawings accompanying this speci?cation, where
1n:

device in erected condition.

’
Main member 2, Fig. 9, comprises a mid-panel
3, to the right vertical edge of which is articu
lated at 4, side panel 5 and to the left vertical
edge at 6, side panel 1. To the outer edge of
panel 5 is articulated at 8, end panel 9, and to
the outer edge of panel ‘I is articulated at iii, end
panel ||. These ?ve panels are preferably
formed from one piece of sheet material and are
provided with openings therethrough respec
tively, the forms and functions of which will ap
pear later herein. It will be noted that mid
panel 3 has its lower edge l2 slightly longer than
similar edges of the other panels, so that when
the device is erected, the whole will be tipped
back slightly to throw the center of gravity well
'within the device, thereby adding to its stabil
ity.
One or more shelves, two are shown in Fig. 1,
are provided. As these shelves are alike, a de
scription of the upper one will suffice for both.
Referring particularly to Fig. 10 shelf 32 com
prises mid-panel I3, opposite end panels 14, I5
articulated thereto at I6, I? respectively, and a
front edge strip l8 articulated at 38 to the front
or lower edges of the said three panels. Said
end panels have their front edges curved at 28,
29 respectively and said strip l8 extends trans
versely in either direction beyond said end panels
and is adapted to have its ends bent around
under the opposite curved ends 28, 29 of end
panels M, 55, and said strip H3 is provided with
opposite hooks I9, 20' for engagement with slots
33, 3| in end panels 9 and H of main mem
ber 2, thus providing supports for said shelf end
panels, all respectively, Figs. 10, 9, 3 and 6.
Panels M, |5 have articulated to their upper
or rear edges, ears 2|, 22 adapted to be bent 10
down for engagement with ears 23, 24, cut out
from end panels 9 and M respectively. Mid
panel i3 of said shelf is provided with ?ange 25,
articulated to its rear edge, and said ?ange is,
?xed to the upper end of back member 26 by 15
some convenient means, as an adhesive, see Fig.
4.‘ Said shelf is thereby hinged at 21 to back
member 26.
The upper portion of mid-panel 3 of main
member 2 may carry printed thereon suitable
legends describing the goods displayed and the
lower portion is preferably provided with an
opening 33, through which may be seen any mer
chandise displayed on the central panel of the
lower shelf, see Figs. 1, 4 and 9. Panels 5 and '|
of main member 2 are provided with openings 25
34, 35 respectively for the reception and sup
port of shelf 32. Referring particularly to open~
ing 35, lower ledge 31 thereof is adapted to- sup
port panel I5 of shelf 32, which rests thereon
and downwardly extending slot 35 is engaged by 30
strip l3 of said shelf.
In assembling the device, side panels 5 and. l
of main member 2 are folded backwardly at
right angles to mid-panel 3, and end panels 9 and
l 5 are folded outwardly at right angles to panels 35
5 and 1, all respectively, see Fig. 2. The ?anges
of the shelves are ?xed to back member 26, see
Fig. 4, as to ?ange 25 of shelf 32, and ears 2|,
22 are hooked into engagement with ears 23, 24
of end panels 9, II of main member ‘2, respec 40
tively.
,
An essential feature of my improved display
device resides in its ability to be collapsed into
?at form for packing and shipping. The steps in
folding the device are as follows; ?rst, hooks as 45
i9, 29 of strip l8 are unhooked from their re
spective slots, as 30, 3|, in end panels 9 and N.
Then back member 26 is moved vertically up
ward, causing the shelf ears, as 2|, 22, to release
their engagement with ears 23, 24 of end panels 50
9, ||, all respectively, and said shelves swing up
wardly and forwardly about front edge 38 as a
fulcrum in the openings, as 34, 35 of panels 5
and l, and ?nally fold ?at against mid-panel 3 55
of main member 2. Then panels ‘I and II are
folded over onto back member 26, and opposite
panels 5 and 9 are folded against panels ‘I and
| |, Fig. 8. That leaves the shelf end panels, as
H‘: of shelf 32, free to be folded to the left,‘Fig. 7,
60

in
2,120,411
down onto panel 9 of main member 2, Fig. 8.
After said folding, opposite shelf panels, as [4 of
shelf 32, may be folded to the right, Fig. 8, onto
panels 5 and 9 of main member 2, thereby form
ing a compact assembly for shipping.
