COLLAPSIBLE FLOWER-STAND.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 5, 1914.
Application filed June 24, 1913. Serial No. 775,572.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIs J. SHADDUoK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lyons, in the county of Clinton, State of Iowa, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Collapsible Flower- Stands, of which the following is a specification.
My invention provides a flower stand, to be used to support or display flowers, which is simple in construction, efficient in use, cheap to manufacture and, when desired, it may be closed together for ease in transporting about or packing away in a small space, yet may be easily opened up for use upon instant notice.
Referring to the drawings in which: Fig-' ure 1 represents a front view of a collapsible stand constructed according to my invention. Fig. 2 is a part sectional side elevation of the stand shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 shows two different types of retaining members, either of which may be used to hold the flowers on the stand.
In Fig. 1, A and B represent two series of strips pivoted together in the usual arrangement to form a lazy tongs and having the two central crossing strips A and B of their respective series, prolonged at their ends A and B respectively. These ends A and B are telescoped into the sleeve members G and G being slidably adjustable therein. The sleeves G and O carry at their upper ends the screw members D and D, adapted to be screwed through the wall of the sleeves and abut against the members A and B so that the members A and B may be adjusted in the sleeves G and C to any desired point, thereby providing conveniently adjustable legs for the said stand, the legs being adapted to support the said stand in an upright position when leaning against some object. The lazy tongs is held in an extended position by the member E pivoted to the back side of the lazy tongs by the bolt F or any other suitable means. The member E carries notches G on the lower side of its free end, so that it may be hung on a pin or bolt II on the back of the tongs thereby retaining the tongs in an extended position. The opening of the tongs may be varied by using the different notches. At suitable intervals on the front strips comprising the tongs are provided knobs or hook fasteners J screwed or otherwise fastened into the said strips. Upon these knobs the flowers may be hung or fastened.
By unfastening the member G from the bolt or pin H and sliding the members A and B into the sleeves O and C the whole device may be compactly closed together.
In Fig. 3 I have shown two modifications of knobs, a button K and a hook L, but other modifications in the hook may be used and slight changes made in the entire device without departing from the spirit of my invention.
What I claim by Letters Patent of the United States of America is:
A collapsible flower stand, comprising in combination, a lazy tongs, consisting of two series of strips superposed upon each other at suitable angles and pivotally secured together at suitable points, the central strip of each series being extended at the same ends, beyond the extreme width of the lazy tongs, sleeves telescoping upon the said extended ends, means carried by the said sleeves whereby they may be securely fixed in position upon the said extended ends, means suitable for carrying flowers and the like, secured to the front face of the front series of strips comprising the said lazy tongs, and means for regulating the opening of the lazy tongs.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
