Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 3t 1913.

Application filed July 2 1912. Serial No. 711,276.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, PHILIP J. HANDEL, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shades, of which the following is a specification.

The object of this invention is to make shades for use with lighting apparatus of various types, gas, oil or electricity among others, having features of novelty and advantage.

Particularly, the invention has for its object the provision of means for making shades of various materials, such as glass, china, porcelain or other fragile material, in any conceivable shape or form, the materials being either pressed, molded or blown, by forming the shade in sections and suitably securing those sections together.

Heretofore when shades, and particularly larger shades, have been made in a single piece great loss has been occasioned by the presence of a small flaw in some portion of the shade, and by a small crack which would ruin the entire shade. Also it has been impossible in the single piece shades to make them of pressed or molded material in some desired forms, owing to the impossibility of manufacture because of the shape.

I have illustrated in the drawings one embodiment of the invention wherein- Figure l is a bottom view of the shade made in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a side View of half of the shade, and Fig. 3 is a detail sectional view showing the manner of adding the sections together.

Of course, it will be understood that my invention is not confined to the size or shape of the shade, or to its use for direct, semi-direct or indirect lighting.

In the drawings a a denote the sections of the shade, in this case four in number, formed at their abutting edges with flanges b b notched or apertured as at 0.

(Z is a T-shape metallic binder, the stem 6 of which lies between the abutting flanges of the shade sections, the head f underlying the abutting edges of the sections. The stem 0 is apertured in alinement with the apertures or slots 0 in the shade flanges, and screws or bolts 9, or equivalent means, are utilized to draw the shade flanges together and secure them to the binders. A suitable number of these bolts can be used so as to securely connect all parts of the shade to form a rigid strong article.

The shade illustrated is such as is used for indirect lighting and can be supported from the metallic binders giving a very much stronger and safer support, and eliminating any possibility of cracking the sections of the shade by drilling holes or by the attachment of supports. By securing the sections together in the manner indicated, it is possible to give to the edge of the shade sections any desired siape. In fact, it is possible to ornament the complete shade either in its surface or contour in any desired way, and it will permit the introduction of hand colored and embossed decorative panels of other than flat contour.

By my construction, if a single panel is broken it can be readily replaced, while with the single piece shades a break would ruin the complete shade. l urthermorc, it is possible by the use of my invention to ship the shaces in knocked down condition, which constitutes both a saving of room for shipment and storage, and also minimizes the danger of breakage. In the case of sections that are made in molds, the edges can be finished which reduces the liability of cracks or breaks.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a sectional shade, a plurality of spaced metallic binders of inverted T shape, shade sections of fragile material interposed between said binders with their edges resting upon the lateral extensions forming the heads thereof, flanges on the shade sections lying against the sides of the binder stems, and securing devices passing through the flanges and stems.

2. In a sectional shade, a plurality of radially arranged metallic binders of inverted T shape in cross section, a shade section of fragile material located between adjacent binders with its edges resting upon the lateral extensions forming the heads thereof, upstanding flanges at the edges of said sections lying against the stems of the binders, and fastening devices passing through apertures in the stems and notches in said flanges.
