PICTURE-HOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mame, 1913-.

Application filed July 29, 1911. Serial No. 641,262. r

To all whom it may concern:

Loyalton, in the county of Sierra and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Picture- Holders, of-

which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements for holders for pictures, ornamental plates,

plied to articles of various sizes andshapes,

and which will hold the same without injuring them and will not hide nor detract from the ornamental exposed faces of such articles.

lVith the above objects in view, and. others which will appear as the nature of the description progresses, the invention resides in the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the drawings, accompanying this specification, there has been illustrated a simple and preferred embodiment of the improvement, and in which drawings,-

Figure 1 is a rear elevation showing my improvement in applied position upon a picture frame. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the same in applied position upon an ornamental plate, plaque or the like. Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken upon the line 38 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the device detached. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of the ring member of the device. Fig. 6 is a similar view of the retaining cap. Fig. 7 is a front elevation of the frame and attachment.

Similar numerals of reference designate corresponding parts throughout.

In the drawings, the numeral 1 designates an ordinary rectangular picture frame.

The numeral 2 designates the frame holder. This holder 2 comprises essentially a plurality of arms constructed of resilient material preferably two in number, and are arranged preferably at right angles to each other. These arms, designated by the numeral 3, are each formed with eyes 4:, and the said eyes are arranged upon each of the arms at an equal distance from the ends or engaging portions of the arms. Each of the said arms 3, beyond 1ts eyes 4, is coiled upon itself to provide the springs 5, and

, the end convolution of the coil is bent as at Be it known that I, ABBIE M. DAVISON I a citizen of the United States, residing at:

6 to provide a substantially U-shaped terminal. This terminal 6 may be and is preferably formed with an ornamental finger 7, the said finger adapted to engage with either the outer face of theframe or the side edges thereof. The arms' 3 may be of any desired length, so that the same may be applied-to various sizes of frames.

The numeral 8 designates a ring member which is provided with a base flange 9. The

rlng member proper is formed with a plurality of depressions, preferably four in number, to correspond with the number of the arms 3 employed. These depressions 10 are arranged oppositely in pairs at right angles with each other, and the arms 3 are each adapted to pass through the diametrically oppositely arranged depressions. The ring or sleeve is threaded as at 11, and the said threads are adapted to coact with interior threads provided upon a retaining cap 12. This retaining cap is adapted to be screwed home upon the threaded flange or ring, and thus effectively binds the arms 3 in the lower Walls formed by the depressions 10, thus providing for the attachment of thesaid arms as well as for the sustaining of the said arms in their adjusted position.

The numeral 13 designates the hanging cord. This cord in the present instance is adapted to pass through the eyes provided upon the horizontally arranged arms 3, and the eye provided upon the lower vertical arm of the holder. The hanging cord may have its upper portion formed with a bow or other ornamentation at its point of connection with the hook or nail from which the picture is sustained.

In Fig. 2 the holder is illustrated as attached to a circular article, such as a plate, plaque, or the like and in this instance the arms therefor are arranged upon said plate at an angle with relation to each other. In this instance the sustaining cord 14 passes through all of the eyes of the arms, and from the above description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it will be noted that I have provided a simple and effective holder for pictures, plates or the like which may be readily. and quickly adjusted to accommodate itself to various sizes of such devices. Furthermore; it will be noted that the device dispenses wit-h the insertion of nails, eyelets, or other artic1eswithi'n the'frame of the pig-gr of the plaque for the reception of th'efsus taining cord, and it will be "also n'o'tedthat the greater the pressure or the weightof the picture upon the cord, the more tightly one or more ofthe arms of the holder will be brought to cont-act the sides or edges of the end convolution of each of the springs be-? ing bent to provide substantially U-shapedi terminals which are adapted to engage with; the edges of the picture frame and to be remined in camera therewith 'by' the tension of the" springs, a sustaining cord )assing through -th'e eyes and the weight of t 1e picture frame tending to expand one or more of the springs to force the engaging ends of the arms connected to the springs more tightly upon the picture frame, a sleeve having a plurality of depressions receiving the central portions of the arms, and a cap engaging the said sleeve and adapted to compress the arms against the inner walls by the depressions of the sleeve.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

ABBIE M. DAVISON.
