M. R. CHESNEY CARDBOARD PICTURE FRAME Filed March 1'7, 1924 A; glvwento'c Patented Jan. 27, 1925.

MADISON R. CHESNEY, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

1 CARDBOARD PICTURE FRAME.

Application filed March 17, 1924. Serial No. 699,761.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MADISON R. CHESNEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Ange-lee and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cardboard Picture Frames, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawlngs.

This invention relates to a cardboard picture frame adapted for use in displaying any kind of a small picture or card but being primarily intended to provide a simple and economical frame for amateur photographs.

In the accompanying drawing:

Fig. 1 is a plan View of the blank from which the frame is made; and

Fig. 2 is a perspective "low of said frame in its set up position.

Like numerals designate corresponding parts in both of the fi ures of the drawing.

The frame is made rom a single strip of cardboard designated as a whole by the reference character A and it is transversely scored at 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 to provide portions 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16. Transverse scoring 6 does not extend entirely across the strip but instead extends inwardly only a short distance from the outer edges of the strip and the material of the strip is cut through on the curved line indicated at 17 to provide a part on the portion 12 which is curved upwardly above the scored portion 6 in the finished article. In addition the portion 12 is provided with a central cut-out sight opening 18. The port on 12 is provided with adhesive carrying portions 12 and 12 along one side and across the lower rear face, respectively.

A pocket for a hotograph or picture, ndicated at 19, is fbrmed by pasting the mner face of the portion 11 to the inner face of the portion 12 aong the adhesive carrying portions 12 12 of the latter and this leaves the curved portion formed by the out 17 projecting above the portion 12 in amanner which will be readily understood. The portion 15 is then bent over and the strip 16 which carries glue or other adhesive upon its inner face is pasted to the outside face of the portion 11, which now constitutes the back of the picture carrying pocket, the portions 13 and 14 being kinked upwardly by folding them along the scored line 8.

. This brings the parts to the position illustrated in Fig. 2 wherein the portion 15 constitutes the inclined brace 01' support for the body portion of the frame comprised by the portions 8, 11 and 12.

From the foregoing description it will be seen that the picture frame constituting the subject matter of the present invention may be made at a trifling cost because it is formed wholly from a single strip of cardboard and that the constituent parts of the frame are formed by merely scoring this cardboard and suitably cutting the same. Thus it is manifiest that these articles may be stamped out very rapidly.

Furthermore, it is apparent that even after the several parts have been pasted the frame as awhole is collapsible, it being possible to fold the portion 15 back against the portion 11 by reason of the bellows-like structure provided by the portions 13 and 14 and thus these frames occupy but very slight space and may be packed in large numbers in cartons or other packages, for ready shipment.

It is understood that the invention is not limited to the precise construction set forth but that it includes within its purview whatever changes fairly come within either the terms or the spirit of the appended claims.

Having described my invention what I claim is: o

1. A picture frame of the character de scribed formed from a single and continuous piece of cardboard transversely scored at a. plurality of points to form front and rear portions adapted to be'folded to other face to face the front portion having a sight opening formed therethrough and the space between said portions constituting a picture receiving pocket'iand an inclined brace portion adapted to be pasted along its free end to the rear face of said rear portion of the picture receiving pocket, the lower edge of the latter portion being connected to the lower edge of the section constituting the front of the picture receiving pocket by a section which is transversely scored substantially at its central portion to adapt it to be bent up and constitute a flexible connection between said parts.

2. A picture frame formed of a single piece of cardboard having a plurality of transverse lines of scoring and separated by one of said lines of scoring into a front section and a back section ada ted to be folded together face to face, sai front section having a sight opening formed therein a connectin section separated by one of said lines o scoring from said front section and comprising two parts separated by a transverse line of scoring and a brace section extending upwardly from the rear edge of said connecting section and pasted at its upper edge to the rear face of the back section, the transverse line of scoring upon the base section adapting said section to be folded upwardly between the lower portion of the brace section and the lower portion of the back section.

3. A structure as recited in claim 2 wherein the line of division between the said front and rear sections is partly scored and partly cut, said cut portion being so shaped as to leave a part upon the front section which grojects above the line of scoring when t c said front and rear sections are brought together face to face.

In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature.

MADISON R. CHESNEY.
