DoIL'Y-STRETC ER.
To all whom it may concern: 1 l s Be it known that we, SAMUEL. A. SNELLING and Bnn'r M. SANER, citizens of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Doily-Stretchers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to doily stretchers; and has for its object to provide a device of this character that possesses certain novel features in the construction and arrangement of parts,.as will be'hereinafter more fully set forth in detail.
Doilies are of different kinds and are made of both heavy and light material according to the purpose for which they are to be used. Some are composed of delicate stitching and fine embroidery of an ornamental character that require careful han-' dling in the operation of stretching and drying the same to avoid injuring the fabric. The finer article is more especially intended as an ornamental feature for the backs of chairs, tables, stands and other articles of furniture. Other doilies are of a heavier and more serviceable make up for practical use on dining tables, etc.
Referring to the drawing- Figure 1 is a topplan of a device embodying the improved features.
Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse section on line 2-2, Fig. 1.
Amay represent a supporting base structure in which the lower ends of a number of standards or posts B are inserted as best shown in Fig. 2. The standards are spaced apart at intervals and are set at an inclined angle outward from the base for the purpose of gradually increasing the diameter of the holding space in providing for articles of different sizes as practicallyillustrated by two doilies C and D, held in a stretched position.
The standards B are provided at intervals with a series of notches 4. The holding and stretching means employed in connection with the notched or serrated standards, consistsof a number of segments 5, in this in stance, one for each standard and are ad justably mounted thereon and capable of an up and down movement in practical working. A screw-eye 7 is insertedin the outer side of each of the segments, the eye-part Specification of Letters Patent. Patented lua'y '17, 1921. Application filed July 19,1920. 'Ser'ia1,No.-39 't,266. I I I being adapted fto over the free ends of; the standards: and engage the notches formed therein. A number of screw-eyes 8 are inserted in the inner sides of the segments 5 and have the outer ends of a corresponding number of flexible links 9 convnecting therewith. A hook 10 is secured 'to each of the inner ends of the flexible links I 9 and is adapted to detachably engage the edge of a doily or other object to be held. It will be understood that a plurality of segments, pins, flexible link connections and hooks are used and properly spaced apart to have a uniform stretching efi'ect. Each seg'-' ment of the border support has an independent adjustment and automatic action in conforming to requirements, which would not be the case if a solid ring was substituted. The
flexible or elastic connection 8 allows for contraction within a limited degree in the process of drying and prevents the hooks 10 from tearing out and at the same time holds the fabric and guards against wrinkling.
By means of this arrangement a number of doilies or other articles of different sizes may be placed in the stretcher in the superimposed relation shown and within a coin pact space which is an advantage where 7 room is limited.
The device shown is of a circular form but it is obvious that a rectangle, oval or other contour may be used according to requirements. The device can be used for stretching and dryingwindow curtains and many other objects not mentioned.
It will be understood that we do not limit ourselves to the precise details of construction and arrangement as shown and de- W scribed, but may make such changes as practical working shall require, without depart ing from the principle or scope of our invention. I
Having thus described our invention, what We claim, is
1. In a device of the class described, a base-support, a number of standards set therein at an inclined angle, a plurality of segments movably mounted on said stand ards, and means connected with said segments for grasping the border edge of an object, as a doily, and holding the same in an outstretched position.
2. In a device of the class described, a
base-support, a number of standards inserted therein and occupying an inclined position and gradually increasing the diameter of the space inclosed thereb a plurality of segment-sections movab y mounted on said standards, and means associated therewith for holding and stretching an object Within the space inclosed by said standards and seg- V ment-sections.
3. In a device of the class described, a
base-support, inclined standards inserted therein and provided with graduated notches spaced longitudinally, a plurality of segment-sections movably mounted on sald SAMUEL A. SNELLING.
