Allen's patent "relates more especially to trucks adapted to be used in the sale and transportation of stoves, the object being to provide means whereby stoves may be readily brought into position suitable for viewing them, and then be replaced in their former position or otherwise be disposed of. Heretofore a difficulty has been experienced by dealers in stoves, and especially retail dealers, in moving their stoves so as to bring them in a good light and position for exhibition and examination.
