This invention pertains to a combined carpet sample
display rack and shipping case for ‘such samples.
In the retailing of soft floor coverings, it is highly
desirable to provide an attractive but inexpensive display
rack for carpet samples. It is the custom in the mer
chandising of rugs and carpets for the retailer to purchase
17 and 18, top and bottom at the back. The front leg
assembly .27 comprises a rod formed into front legs 28
and 29 and extending across the bottom front of the sec
tions 17 and 18 to provide two transverse front tie mem
bers 30 and 31. Diagonal braces 32 and 33 are secured
at the bottom of the framework to provide requisite
rigidity. The rear legs ‘35 and 36 are formed of rods
hinged to the bottom portion of each side frame member
17 and 18. This hinged connection for leg 35 is shown
at 37 and 38 and the attachment of leg 36 to frame
member 18 is identical. Each leg 35 and 36 has a brace
39 and 40 respectively which when the legs are extended
