JAMES W. DE CAMP, F BLACKWELL, OKLAHOMA, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-FOURTH TO CHARLES E. DE CAMP, OF BLACKWELL, OKLAHOMA, AND ONE-FOURTH TO 'JOHN P. MILLER, OF MCALLEN, TEXAS.

GLASS GASKET.

Application led July 20, 1915. Serial No. 40,999.

I To all whom t may concern:

'y or any preferred shape, the said body in Be it known that I, JAMES W. DE CAMP, a citizen of the United States, residing at Blackwell, in the county of Kay and State of Oklahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Glass Gaskets, of which the following is a specification.

This invent-ion relates to burial caskets and has as its object to provide a casket constructed from glass or other similar transparent material, which casket will have its walls so braced as to adapt it to withstand the same degree of handling and usage as an ordinary wooden casket.

It is another object of the invention to provide a novel lining arrangement for the casket, the same being constructed to permit of the remains being` viewed or to completely conceal the remains as may be desired.

In the accompanying drawings z-Figi1re 1 is a perspective view of a casket embodying the present invention; Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse sectional view therethrough; Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional View; Fig. 4 is a perspective view illustrating the lining structure for the lid of the casket, and Fig. 5 is a fragmentary perspective view of the lining for the body of the casket.

In the drawings, the body of the casket is molded from glass and has the ordinary cluding side walls 1 and a bottom 2. i The side Walls` and bottom are reinforced respectively by ribs 3 and 4 which are formed integral with the inner faces of the said walls and these ribs are preferably triangular in cross-section as clearly shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings.

In order to protect the bottom of the casket from injury when the casket is set down, a Wooden board 5 is disposed against the under side of the bottom 2 and held in place by means of reinforcing bands as will now be explained. The numeral 6 indicates a metallic band which is secured circumferentially around the body near the top thereof and the numeral 7 indicates a similar band secured about the body below the band 6 and parallel thereto. Bands 8 are riveted or otherwise secured to the bands 6 and 7 at intervals in the length ofthe body and these bands 8 extend opposite the sides 1 of the body and at their intermediate por- Specication of Letters Patent.

tions transversely beneath the bottom 2 as clearly shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings. In order that all of the bands 6, 7 and 8 may Ibe drawn tightly about the body to lirmly bind and b-race the walls thereof and yet not be likely to result in fracture of the walls, strips 9 of felt or other suitable material are interposed between the bands and the surface of the said body.

The numeral 10 indicates plates which are secured to the strips 8 and each of these plates is provided with spaced ears 11 to which are pivoted the sides of the handles 12.

The lid of the casket is indicated by the numeral 13 and secured circumferentially about the lid is a metallic band 14. Other reinforcing bands 15 are secured at their ends to the band 14 and extend transversely over the top of the said lid. Hinges 1G are secured to the bands 6 and 14 at one side of the casket and serve to hingedly connect the lid of the casket with the body thereof.

In order that the casket may be closed in an air-tight manner, the upper edge of the side walls of the body are formed with a groove 17 and the lower edge of the lid is formed with a bead 18 adapted to seat in said groove in the manner clearly shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings.

A frame 19, preferably of wood, is arranged within the top of the body of the casket and this frame is covered by any suitable material so as not to detract from the appearance of the casket and at intervals, the frame is provided with hooks 20 with which may be engaged eyes 21 at the upper edge of the lining for the body of the casket, the said lining being indicated at 22 and comprising one or more plies of clothl of a suitable quality. v

The lid 13 is formed interiorly and upon the inner faces of its side and end Walls with integral reinforcing ribs 23V which correspond to the ribs 3 and which terminate at their upper ends in spaced relation to the upper side of the top of the lid so that their upper ends will support a wooden frame 24: which is arranged Within the said lid and which is similar in construction to the frameI 19 and covered in any suitable manner. A lining 25 is arranged Within the lid 13 and at the head end of the casket is passed about a wooden annular frame 26 which is fitted Patenten aan. a, ieri.

within the frame 24 and supported by friction. The frame 26 provides an opening in the lining 25 through which the remains may be viewed. However, there is provided an annular frame 27 having a lining section 28 supported therein and this annular frame- 27 is adapted to be fitted into the fralne 2G in the manner shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings so as to completely close the opening formed by the frame 26.

It will be understood that any suitable material may be substituted for the felt strips which are disposed between the outer surface ofthe casket and the metallic bands. It will also be understood that, inasmuch as the walls of the casket are transparent, it is desirable that the lining employed be double-faced, or, in other words, finished upon both sides, so that it will present a near appearance when viewed through the said walls of the casket and will present an equally neat appearance when the casket is opened. If desired, one face of the lining may be white and the other face black.

It will be understood that-if desired the binding strips 6, 7 and etc., maybe of wood instead of metal or in fact that they may be of any material found suitable for the purpose.

Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new is 1. A burial casket of plastic material having its wallsK reinforced by binding strips secured thereabout, and strips of yieldable material interposed between the binding strips and the outer surfaces of the said walls of the casket.

2. A burial casket comprising a body and a lid therefor, a metallic band surrounding the sides and ends of the lid at the lower portion thereof7 bands extending transversely of the upper portion of the lid and secured at their ends to the sides of the first-mentioned band, a metallic band surrounding the sides and ends of the body of the casket at the upper portion thereof, a metallic band surrounding the sides and ends of the said body belowL the last-mentioned band, bands extending up beside the body and beneath the body thereof and secured at their ends and inwardly of their ends to the last two-mentioned bands, and yieldable protective strips arranged beneath all of said bands and between the same and the'respective portions of the casket about which the bands extend.

3. The combination with a burial casket having transparent walls, of a lining for the casket having a finished surface visible through the said walls and a finished surface visible at the interior of the casket.

4l. A burial casket having transparent Walls, and a lining draped within the casket and having a ply provided with a finished surface presented toward the inner surface of the said walls and a ply having a finished y surface presented vtoward the interior of the casket.

5. A casket including a body of plastic material, a yieldable base disposed against the under side of the said body, a binding strip secured about the sides of the body and binding strips secured at their ends to the first mentioned strip and extending downwardly beside the said sides ofthe body and transversely beneath the yieldable base, and strips of yieldable material interposed between the binding strips and the outer surfaces of the walls of the body and between the last mentioned strips and the under side of the yieldable base.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
