l.
This invention relates to knife racks for silvern
ware or cutlery chests, and the principal purpose
of the invention is to provide an improved knife
rack made of inexpensive and readily available
materials and formed by simple and rapid oper
ations, yet affording a neat and attractive dis
play holder in which the knives may be conven
iently inserted or removed without injuring the
exposed face of the holder which preferably has
cut-out windows exposing portions of the knife
blades to the view of the observer.
The display rack is intended to be suitably
mounted in the cover of a chest containing a set
of silverware or table cutlery, and may be made
of a size and shape to lit the chest cover in which
itis to be secured.
_
A recommended embodiment of the invention
is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in
which:
Fig. 1 is a view of a felt-covered, cardboard
blank used in forming the improved display rack,
a portion of the covering being broken away;
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary plan view on a scale
larger than that of Fig. l, of a cardboard filler
(Cl. 206;'7‘5)

The scored lines del-lne a top flap Ill, a front
section I5, a rear section I6, and an interme
diate or windowefacing panel Il, of the com
pleted article. Each section is rectangular, and
Ch the sections l5, I6 and I'l are of approximately
the same size.
Prior to folding, the front section I5 and the
fold line between said face and the flap I4, are
apertured by suitable dies to provide Window
openings I8 in the front face and blade-receiving
openings I9 spaced along said fold.
A filler sheet 2E! is also provided. As shown in
Fig. 2, this cardboard sheet has slots 2l which
provide pockets for the knife blades inserted in
the completed display holder, the pocket slots
`
being died out by machine or cut out by hand.
The length of the filler 2B corresponds to that
of the body sheet and its width is slightly less
than that of the front section l5. so ythat the
20 filler will ñt between the folds at the top and
bottom of that section when the parts are as
