DAVIS S. WILLIAMS, OE LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 29,1920.

' Application filed October 27, 19,19. Serial No. 333,768.

To all whom it may concern:

Bait known that .I DAvIs S. WILLIAMS,

citizen of the United Eitates, residing at Los Angeles, in the, county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented a new and useful Jointed Figure, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to toys and more particularly to a. type of toy which is formed of several sections susceptible'to various relative Ynampulations'for the purpose of changing the appearance of the toy.- The object of the invention is to provide a jointed figure in which the sections may be rotated upon each other to any desired degree. without destroying the continuity of the surface of the figure. Another object is to provide a jointed figure havinga plurality of wedge shaped sections rotatively connected for relativefangular adjustment, to changethe sha e of the body of the figure. Various other 0 jects and advantages will be apparent from the following description of the accompanying drawings which form a partjof this disclosure and which illustrate a preferred form of embodiment of the invention.

'Of the drawings:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a figure made in' accordance with my invention, showing in dotted lines a second adjustment of the body sections and the hind-leg section.

Fig. 2 is a similar view showing another ad'ustment.

1g. 3 1s a central longitudinal section showing the pivotal connecting means.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of one of the,

wedge shaped body sections.

The figure herein illustrated is in simulation of a bear but itis obvious thatv it may be a simulation of any other animal or of a fowl, reptile, insect or human figure, either natural or mythical, and may beconstructecl of wood or other available material.

In the drawings, 1 desi' nates the head terminal section'having a at circular bearing surface 2 adapted to engage with a companion flat circular bearing surface 3 of the fore-'legseetion 4. The opposite vflat circular bearing surface -5 of the section'4 is angled relative to the surface 3 and the lower porticn of the'section 4 is bifurcated to form fore legs 6+6. The hind -leg section 7 is likewise bifurcated to form hind legs 8-8 and has an angled fiat circular bearing surface 9; Intermediate the bearing surfaces 5 and 9 of the two leg secrecess in the head section and the opposite end anchored to the hind-legsection, preferably 1n the crotch of the furcations. From the above it Will be understood that by rotat- I ing the various sections to relatively different angles the figure may be made to assume a large number of different forms and positions of grotesque and amusing characters, andcthat such relative turning of the sections will not destroy the continuity of the surface of the figure, this being due to the circular formation of the cooperatingbearing surfaces. Y a l Having described my invention I claim: 1. A jointed figure of the class described combining a plurality of sections having '00- operating bearing surfaces, and means connecting the sections in relative rotative relation, the -'co6perati ng bearing surfaces being of duplicate size and contour-to .per manently maintain the continuity of the sur-.

face of the figure during all rotative adjustment of the several sections.

. 2. A jointed figure of the class described 1 combining a plurality of sectionshavin .relatively angled coiiperating bearing su' aces, and means connecting the sections inrelative rotative relation, the cooperating bear ing surfaces being of. duplicate size, andcontour tofpcrmanently maintain the continuity of the surface of the figure during a'll rotative adjustment of the-several sections.

3. A jointed figure 'ofthe class described combining a pluralitye circular cooperating means positioned coincident to he-axis of the bearing surfaces for. connecting the sections in relative rotative relation, the, cooperating bearing surfaces .being of dupliof sections having armg su fences, and

cate size to pc anentlymaintain thecon- I tinuity of'the surface of the figure-during all rotative adjustment of the severalsections.

4. A jointed figure of the class described combining a plurality of sections having rel- =atively angled circular. cooperating bearing surfaces, and means positioned coincident to the axis of said bearing surfaces to connect the sections in relative rotative relation, the cooperating bearing surfaces being of duplicate size to permanently maintain the continuity of the surface of the figure during all rotative adjustment of the several sections.

5. A jointed figure of the class described combining two opposed terminal sections, a pluralityof intermediate sections, and means connecting the sections in relative rotative relation, -the sections having cooperating.

bearing surfaces which areof duplicate size and contour to permanently maintain the continuity of the surface of the figure dur ing all rotative adjustment of the several sections.

6. A jointed figure of the class described combining two opposed terminal sections each provided with circular bearing surfaces, a plurality of intermediate sections each having circular bearing surfaces for cooperation with the bearing surfaces of the adjacent sections, and means positioned coincident to the axis of the bearing surfaces for connecting the sections in relative rotative relation, the cooperating bearing surfaces being of duplicate size to permanently maintain the continuity of the surface of the figure during all rotativ'e'adjustment of the several. sections.

7. A jointed figure of the-class. described having. a body formed of a plurality of circular wedge shaped sections, and a pivotal connecting element positioned coincident to' DAVIS s. WILLIAM/S.
