WALL-PAPER EXHIBHTOR SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 305,381, dated September 16, 1884.
Application filed October 16, 1883. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, FRANK T. FoRsArrH, a citizen of the United States, residing at North Troy, in the county of Orleans and State of Vermont, have invented a certain new and useful Tall-Paper Exhibitor; and l do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the inventiom'reterence being had to the accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification, in which- Figure l is a vertical elevation in perspective. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of part of exhibitor.
My invention has for its object to provide a device for exhibiting wall-paper, by the use of which the trouble and expense of making up sample-books of such papers are avoided.
My invention consists in the novel construe tion of a device forexhibiting wall-papers, comprising a vertical standard and a rotary polygonal frame mounted thereon, said frame consisting of twoend or top and bottom wheels or rings with vertical bars attached thereto in pairs, and having horizontallydisposed sloping shelvesattached externally, as hereinafter described. n
Referring to the accompanying drawings, A designates a central vertical standard or spindle, firmly secured to a base, B, and having braces or feet c a a a. These may be either of wood orof metal.
C represents a rotary fra1ne',`"mounted on the standard A. Said frame is composed of the end pieces, D D', which are each in the form of a polygonal ring or wheel, having fellies d d andradial arms or spokes d d. The radial arms cl d have each a central opening for the passage of the standard A, and the latter is formed with a shoulder, on which the lower wheel or ring rests,
E E, &c., are vertical strips 4or bars, secured to the fellies d d, as shown, there being tWO suc-h bars to each felly-piece. Screws e e are employed to fasten said parts to each other, so 4 5 as to permit them to be readily taken apart for packing purposes and put together again. On each pair of bars are secured a number of horiZontally-disposed shelves, FF,which slope from their front to their rear edges, so as t0 5o permit the rolls of paper thereon to turn freely, as required, without danger of falling off.
G G are radially-projecting handles or pins, fastened to the telly-pieces cl d, between the bars E E, to facilitate turning the exhibitor 55 in order to bring its different sides successively to the front, to show the several patterns exposed on such sides or the pendent ends of the rolls laid on the shelves F F..
To pack the exhibitor, the rotary frame is 6o lifted off the standard A. The braces a ci are then detached from said standard and the bars E E removed from the ends or wheels D D'.
`The parts will now occupy but small space.
