‘ This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in display devices and more particu-_
larly it pertains to devices for displaying various
articles of which paint brushes are one good
5 example.
It is the object of the invention to provide
new and novel means for displaying .paint
brushes and similar articles, and at the same
time keep them orderly and in pre-determined
10 numbers in groups.
It is a further object of the invention so to
construct the device that it may be used in vari
ous different manners.
Still a further object of the invention resides in
15 a novel construction and arrangement of parts
whereby each time a paint brush is removed from
the device, a signal will be given.
Still a further object of the invention resides
in a new and novel construction which is simple
20 in operation and economic of manufacture.
With the above and other objects in View refer
ence will be had to the accompanying drawings,
in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of one of the units
25 forming an important part of the device,
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view on
an enlarged scale taken substantially on the line
2-2 of Figure 1,
Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view taken
30 substantially on the line 3—3 of Figure 2,
Figure 4 is a perspective view of a removable
panel member,
Figure 5 is a longitudinal sectional view taken
substantially on the line 5—5 of Figure 4,
Figure 6 is a perspective view illustrating the
manner in which the panel member as illustrated
in Figures 4 and 5 is employed in combination
with a unit,
Figure 7 is a sectional view taken substantially
40 on the line 1-‘! of Figure 6, the view being on an
enlarged scale, and;
Figure 8 is a perspective view illustrating the
manner in which a number of units may be se
cured together to provide a multiple unit display
45 device.
Referring to the drawings, and particularly
to Figures 1 to 3, the device comprises a base
member A. This base member A is formed from
semi-?exible material such for example as sheet
50 metal and has an inclined top wall It]. This in
clined top wall H) has a plurality of openings H
arranged in pairs, which openings preferably
extend in a straight line transversely of the top
wall Ill. The base member, as illustrated in
55 Figure 2, has a bottom wall l2 which is bent up
wardly at its freeend as at l3, and suitable sup
porting feet M are provided.
Extending transversely of the under face of
the inclined top wall In there is a rigid member
I5, and this rigid member is secured as by nails,
screws or the like IE to the inner face of the
inclined top wall It. This rigid member provides
the means for carrying a plurality of article
retaining elements ll. As best illustrated in
Figure 1, these elements H are arranged in pairs 10
and, as shown in Figure 3 the elements in each
pair are angularly disposed in such manner that
they converge towards each other. An enlarged
head porton I8 is formed upon the free end of
each of these elements I‘! preferably by forming
a turn in the end of the member, it being under
stood that the member is formed from wire or
similar material.
By this construction and arrangement of parts,
the article, which in the present instance is a
paint brush, may be positioned upon the inclined
wall Ill with its handle between the elements
forming one of the pairs of elements, and said
brush will be retained in position by the means
I1. By angular disposition of the elements I‘!
in each pair, the space between the enlarged
head portions thereof is contracted so that the
elements will be set in vibration by the removal
of a brush from its display position, and this
vibration will set up a sound of a more or less 30
musical character and attract attention to the
fact that a paint brush is being taken from the
display. This is an important feature of the
invention since it lessens the possibility of pick
ing up of the paint brushes or other articles with 35
out being observed by the clerk or attendant.
Extending upwardly from the rear end of the
base member A there is a member B. This mem
ber B is'formed of sheet metal or other similar
semi-flexible material and has an inclined front
wall 20 from which project rearwardly extending
sides 2|. Flanges are provided and screws or
the like 22 are employed to secure this member
B in position upon the base member II].
It will be obvious that the top wall ill of the 45
base member A and the front wall 20 of the base
member B may be provided with any advertising
copy desired.
In Figures 4 and 5 I have shown a panel which
comprises a main body portion 38 formed of sheet
metal or similar material. This body portion
30 has side ?anges 3| which are provided with
elongated openings 32. The panel 30 may be
supported in display position in which it is illus
trated in Figure 5 by an easel or the like 33, the 55
end portions 34 of which are off-set and receive
the eyes 35 secured to the rear face of the panel
30. This panel member 30 is provided with the
article holding means heretofore described and
serves to support the articles to be displayed upon
the front face thereof when the device is in dis
From the foregoing it will be apparent that
the present invention provides a new and im
proved display device which is particularly adapt
ed for the display of paint brushes and similar
articles, and while the invention has been herein
disclosed in the preferred form, it is to be under
is done, the panel member is placed with its ?ange
stood that it is notto be limited to the speci?c
construction herein illustrated and that it may
be practiced in other forms withoutdeparting
from the spirit thereof.
Having thus described the invention, what is
adjacent one side wall of the member 20 and a
claimed as new, is:
By this construction it will be obvious that the
panel member 30 may be secured in position to
support a plurality of articles which will be, ele
diate the ends thereof, a stiffening element se
play position.
The panel member 30, as shown in Figure 6,
may be used in combination with one of the units
comprising the members A and B, and when this
‘A display device comprising a plate or panel
bolt 35 is passed through the opening 32 in the
?ange 3| of the member 30, and an opening 36 1 like member of semi-?exible material having a
in one of the side walls 2| of the member B. transversely extending series of openings interme
vated with respect to those carried by the base
member A.
It will be obvious by reference to Figure 8
that several of these units may be secured to
gether to form a single display device and when
this is done the panel member 30, heretofore re
ferred to, is secured to the member B of the cen
tral unit A and to the member B of each of the
end units by bolts such as 35, heretofore de
cured to said panel-like member and extending
transversely of the rear face thereof and posi
tioned directly in line with said openings, a. plu
rality of U-shaped resilient members projecting
through said rigid members and the openings'in
the panel-like member with the legs of each
U-shaped member in converging relation, and
means for securing the rigid member permanent
ly to the rear face of the panel-like member..-" 25
