(ci. `«itffifa'af My invention relates to display devices for 'dis playing miniature samples simulating a `roll vof glazed linoleum having afcolore'd'design thereon. The colored design lon the usual `linoleum is of >such a great size that it is impossible .to .cut a piece from the original sheet, of a -size «easily transportable by a-salesman to include the .whole Vof the design.k `On the other hand, if a colored design from a linoleum sheety is copied in yminia :in ture on asheet of paper, the finished appearance .is far different from the appearance of ‘the lino :leum itself. This is particularlyY due to the lack .of glazing on theminiature colored sheet, and which cannot be simulated by a-coating of shellac , `or other varnish. .« - ' ‘ It Vis Ían object »of my invention .to provide a Adisplayzdevice `simulating in appearance a -roll o'f linoleum .having a colored. design thereon, Vand with aglazed'surface'in miniature and adaptable to be carried inthe pocket. . ; » It is a further object yof my vinvention to _pro vide 'a pluralityv Aof Athe above» miniature "rolls mounted on a display stand, whereby .each roll is removable from the -stand in order 'to permit changing of the individual `rolls inv accordance with the changing of the designs of the linoleum manufactured.

In this modifica tion there is no base on which the roll is mounted.

As new de signs for linoleum are made, new display devices may be made and sent throughout the terri ning upwardly through the base and into the pins I2. These pins are preferably placed in a line and spaced apart sufficiently so that the dis tory and substituted inthe displaystands or display cases, as is readily‘apparent. The placing of the Cellophane around the colored display rolls simulates the appearance 10 play roll illustrated in Fig. 5 may be placed over the same, with the hollow portion 9 of position. A second placed on the base I pins |2 projecting into the the core I to keep- them in of the original glazed linoleumrroll and has the shelf or support M'may be* additional advantage of keeping the colored I behind the row of pins |2,» vdesign at all times clean and free from finger 15 and pins similar to the front pins I2 may be . mounted thereon for positioning the front row . and at a higher elevation or in stepped rela tion; or as is illustrated in Fig. k8, it'may be preferable to place holes |5 in the base and to 20 place pins I6 in the core I of the display rolls and projecting lsuihcie'ntly so they may enter the holes I5, thus holding the rolls in position. Fig. 9 shows my preferred display case. This consists of` a box preferably formed of sheet 25 metal with a back portion 20,'a bottom portion 2| and two sides 22, 22. Hinged to the back `20 is the top 23 which preferably has edges 24 sur rounding it on four sides, so as to cover the up 30 per edges of the sides when the top is closed. The front portion 26 of the case is hinged at 2'I to the frontfedge of the bottom 2|, so that when it is notV in closed position it maybe swung around and under the bottom portion 2|, as .is clearly illustrated in Fig. 9.

A display device depicting a plurality of 35 Spaced back from the front of my display box is a sliding metal side piece 28 having over rolls of linoleum having different colored designs turned edges 29 which slide in an outwardly pro thereon, comprising a plurality of rolls of paper jecting flange portion 30 attached to the insideV having similar miniature colored designs thereon, of the twoY sides. I preferably place an aperture said rolls being'covered with cellulose sheets in 40 3| in the side pieces 28 and a spring latch 32Y order to impart the glazed appearance of the 40 on the ’outside of the side >portions"22 projecting original rolls, and a stand for said rolls com through an-aperture 33 and so formed that its prising a base having upwardly projecting pins end 32a will project in the aperture 3| when the for insertion within the rolls. side portion 28 is in its closed position, and'will 1 4.
