GEORGE HILLS, OF'PLANVILLE, OON'NEOTICUT.

IMPROVEMENT IN FLOWER'STANDS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 150,320, dated April 28, 1874; application filed March 17, 1874.

To all whom -t may concern:

Be it known that I, GEO. HILLs, of Plainville, in the county of Hartford and State of Oonnecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Flower-Stands and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use it, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification.

The nature of my invention relates to an improvement in ilower-stands; and it consists in the arrangement and combination of parts which will be more fully described hereafter.

Figure l is a Vertical section of my invention. Figs. 2 and 3 are detail views of the same.

A represents the central post or standard, having a shoulder formed upon each end. Abutting against the shoulder on the lower end, and secured in position by means of the washer d and screw c, is the hub 0/, having three or more dovetail grooves formed in its edges, which taper from the bottom' upward, being narrowest at the top. Upon the upper ends of ,each of the legs g is formed a dov'etail tenon, g', made to taper from the bottom upward, so as to correspond to the grooves in the hub, in which they fit. By making the parts taper in this manner, the greater the weight upon the stand the more firmly are the parts bound together. Upon the top of the standard, supported by the collar, is a hub, c, which can be freely revolved around or removed at will, and from which radiate a number of stationary arms, h, having a socket, j, formed in their outer ends to receive the 'studs or projections o, formed on the under side of the pans l. Between the bottom hub c' and the top hub c'there may be one or more hubs, c, slipped down over the standard A, and be supported in position -at any desired point by means of the movable collar n and set-screw t. Each one of these hubs c has a number of grooves, t','formed in its edge, and in each groove on the top of the collar is formed a socket, 3, of an y suitable kind. The arms h have each a tenon to fit in the grooves i, and a round or square lug or projection, 2,, to fit in the sockets 3, whereby they are rigidly attaehed to the revolving hubs. By having the hubs revolve freely around, and having the arms attached rigidly to them, any one of the pots can be swung around from the front to the rear with' out the danger of overcoming the equilibrium of the stand.

Each one of the pans lis spun up or stan] p ed from a single s'heet of metal, and is made deep enough to hold a sufficient quantity of water to. last the flowers for some time.

Having thus described my invention, I claim 1. The combination of the standard A and hubs c, having the grooves z' and sockets 3, with the rigid arms having tenons and projections orlugs 2 formed on their ends, substantially as set forth.

2. The combination of the standard A, re-

volving hubs c, collar n, set-screw t, rigid arms h, and pans Z, substautially as shown and described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 12th day of March, 1874.

GEORGE HILLS.
