FRAME.

To all 'whom may concern:

i Be it known that I, ARTHUR S. FORD, aA citizen of the United States, and a resident of 1New York, in thel county of New York and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Frames, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.- This invention relates more particularly to a class of pictureframes and the like.

to provide a frame designedto beemployed for displaying) on walls and elsewhere the pictures of o jects, advertising and other subject matters in an unusually attractive manner, and which is adapted to be made of cardboard or other 'inexpensive pliable 'material in a knockdown form to allow of being transported in large quantities in a compact parcel as well as allowing of being easily assembled for use. The invention contemplates the formation of the frame from a' sheet of pliable material whichv is cut to provide a blank consisting of an an` gular backing or surface element on which the subject matter for display ,is mounted or printed or otherwise inscribed. Extension members protrude laterally from the surface element, and these extension members are adapted to be folded to provide on one face of the surface element, at its marinal edges a frame bar of approximately an mverted U-shape in cross section. Through the surface velement in spaced proximity to two of its opposite extension members may be two pairs of spaced slots, andprojecting fromeach of these extension members, may

l be a tongue adapted to be inserted in the slots of each pair whereby the frame bar will be releasably locked to the surface element.

With these and other objects in view the 'f vinvention will be hereinafter more particui larly descrlbed with reference to the aecompanyingdrawing 'formin a part .of this specification in which simIlar characters of reference indicate `correspondin vparts in al1 A the views, and will then bepomted out in the claims at the end ofthe description.

In the drawing, Figure 1 is a top plan of a form of pliable blankfrom'which my imprgved frame formed.`

paper, thin sheet metal or the like, and this blank has a backing or surface element, as

l 11, which may be of any desired angular My invention has ,for its ob]ect primarily Vrectangular surface element are provided by scoring, as at 12, 13, 14, 15, the central part of the blank, and vprojecting in opposite lateral directions from the scoring 12 and 14:

ofthe surface element are two extension members or flaps, as 16 and 17, respectively. Both ofthe extension members 16 and 17 are substantially rectangular of lengths corresponding to the length ofthe surface element, while being considerably narrower than the surface element. The extension member 16 is scored lengthwise, as at 18, in spaced proximityto the scoring 12, and this member vis also scored, as at 19, in spaced proximity to its free edge. The extension member 17 is likewise 'scored lengthwise, as at 20, in spaced proximity to they scoring 14, while in spaced proximity to its free lengthwise edge is another scoring, as 21. Protruding in opposite lateral directions from the vrespective scorings 13 and 15 of the' surface element 10 are two more extension members or flaps 22 and 23 each of which have 22 is a tongue, as 31, while extending outwardly from the extension member 23 is another tongue 32. At the juncture of the cxtension member 22 with the tongue 31 is a crosswise scoring 33,- and in spaced proximity to'the free end of this tongue is a seoond crosswise scorin 34. At the ljuncture of the extension mem er 23 withl the tongue 32 is a crosswise scoring, as 35, while in spaced proximity to the free end of this tongue is another crosswise scoring 36I The tongues 31 and 32 are preferably somewhat narrower than the extension members 22 and 23, and in the surface element 11 at the scoringl 13 is a pair of spaced slots 37 of. lengths adapted to freely receive the tongue 31, while in the surface element 11l at the scoring 15 is a pair of spaced slots 38 of lengths adapted to freely receive the tongue 32. *Projecting in opposite lateral directions from the ends of the extension member 16 adjacent to and extending toward the extension members 22 and 23 may be fingers 39 and 40 which areof widths slightly less than the widths of the parts of the extension members 22- and 23 between the scorings 13, 27 and 29, 30. Pro7 jecting in opposite lateral directions from the ends of the extension member 17 also adjacent to and extending tow-ard the eXtension members 22 and 23 may be two more fingers 41 and 42 of widths similar to the widths of the ngers 39 and 40.

T o lfold the blank 10 for forming the frame theextension member 16 is bent lengthwise at the scorings 12, 18, 19 and the member is folded upon the surface element or backing 11 in somewhat the fashion of an inverted U in cross section, the fold at the free edge' of the member being inturned so as to lay upon the surface member. The extension' member 17 is likewise bent lengthwise at the scorings 14, 20, 21 and this member is folded upon one face of the surface element or backing 11 also in somewhat the fashion of an inverted U in cross section. With this arrangement of the extension members 16 `and 17 the fingers 39, 40, 41, 42 are bent upwardly at right angles toward these members, and the fingers are then disposed edgewise upon ythe extension members or flaps 22 and 23. Following this disposition of these parts of the blank, the eXtension member 22 is bent lengthwise at the scorings 27 and 28, and the tongue 31 is -bent lengthwise at its scoring 34. The extension member 23 is similarly bent lengthwise at its scorings 29 and 30, while the tongue 32 is bent lengthwisev at its scoring 36. Both of the extension members 22 and 23 are then folded upon the surface element 11 in somewhat the fashion of an inverted U in cross section as well as Ibeing folded to inclose the fingers 39, 40, 41, 42. The bent tongue 31 is guided downwardly through one of the slots 37 and then guided upwardly thro-ugh the second one of these slots so that the free end of the tongue will be disposed inl the \Ushaped extension member 22, and the bent tongue 32 is also guided downwardly through one of the slots 38 and then directed upwardly through the second slot of the pair 38 so that the freeI end of the tongue will be within the' U-shaped extension member 23. Thus I providea very simple and efficient frame designed to be used for displaying on 'walls and elsewhere pictures of objects and other subject matters, and which is of a knockdown type for being folded into an as y sembled form when it is desired to use the frame. In order to allow the frame to be hung on one or more nails or the like in the surface element or backing 11 at spaced parts of its marginal edges may be provided a number of holes, as 43 and 44.

In the foregoing ydescription I have embodied the preferred form of my invention, but I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself thereto, as I am aware that modificatons may be made therein without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages offthis invention, therefore I reserve to myself the right to make such changes as fairly fall within the scope thereof. l A l Having thus ldescribed my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentsf 1. A frame made `from a pliable blank consisting of an' angular surface element having extensidmmembers protruding from its edges andv each-of the extension members being foldable to provide on one face of the surface element "at it-s"inarginal edges an `au- 'gular frame bar=of approximately" an inverted U-shape in cross section, the surface element having apair of spaced slots in proximity to two of its opposite extension members,- and these extension members being -provided withv tongues for insertion in the slots of each pair whereby the frame bar will be releasably locked to the surface elcment.

2. A frameA made from a pliable blank consisting of a substantially. rectangular surface element having flaps protruding from its edges and each of the flaps being scored so as to be foldable to provide on one face of the surface element at its marginal edges an'angular frame bar ofapproXimately an inverted U-shape in cross section, the surface element having a pair of spaced slots in proximityy to two of its opposite eX# tension members, and the flaps being provided with tongues which are scored so as to be folded for insertion in the slots of each pair whereby the framebar will be releasably l'ocked'to the surface'element.

This specification signed and witnessed this 11th day of February A. D'. 1919.
