This invention relatesto'cover-holders for waywhile'serving from'the dish, usually lays utensils having separate covers. It has for it alongsidethe dish on the table. Thus the itschief objectto provide a device which will cover is usually in the way of something else i be attachable totlie top of the utensil in such on the table, and what is more important,.be-

Since vide anarticle of theiclass described which most casseroles and the like, are made with may be attractively 'finshed. by silver or horizontally extending lifting-handles, such nickel plating to present the appearance of as 5, the article is usually made to'be sprung 120 other table ware and which may be readily onto'one .of these horizontal handles.

It is'lobvious that it also provides present invention removed from the vessel; a regular, convenient location for disposing 8d V Fig. j lisaplan view-ofa blank from which of the lid while serving, instead of having the article can 'bemade; j I to find a loca-tlonfor the .cover on the table Fig. 15 is a detailedsectional view of a vesevery time it is removed. vsel; having a modified cover-holder; The article of the present invention is I Fig.6 is a perspective of thisfcover holder; adapted to be quickly and cheaply made, in a i Fig. 7 is a detailed sectional view of a few simple pressing operations, froma blank vessel having another form of the coversuch as 8, which consists ofa single strip of holder of the present invention, and resilient-material, spring brass for example.

- Fig. 8 is a perspective of the cover-holder. One end of'the blank 8 is shaped into the at- Referring more in detail to the parts of taching-clampport1on 3, and the rest of the the drawings by reference numerals, the blank bent up into a prolongation 90f the .main body 1 of the vessel has a cover 2 which upper JaWOf the'clamp 4, as shown'in Fig. 3. is an entirely separate article therefrom. In This prolongation 9 is bent downwardly at using such vessels, the person serving reany desired point, such as l0,depend1ng moves the cover 2, and, to get it out of the upon the size of the rack desired, to-form a spring joint thereat, which joint insures a flexible and yielding rest for the lid.

The downward continuation of the blank is interrupted as at 11, where the strip is bent horizontally but at an angle to the jaw 4, to thereby provide a' spring-cushion seat 11 for the edge of the cover. The rest of the strip is bent upwardly at a suitable point 12, depending upon the width of the cover it is to be used with,to form the outer'jaw 7 of the cover-holding clamp. .7

It is not essential that the base 11 of the cover-holding clamp be out of contact-with theupper wall 4: of the lid-engaging clamp, but it is desirable in order that both bends 11 and 10, of the clamp may yield when the clamp is opened, thereby-permitting a stifier metal to be used than would be satisfactory if the bending were confined to the outer jaw7.

The handles and lidrims of the'most widely used types of casseroles and the like are made of a standard fixed thickness, hence a single standard size of holder, such as that shown in Figs; 1-4, to'correspond will have a wide field of usefulness, but of course the article may be madewith the clamp andlid holder of dilferent sizes and at different angles with respect to each other to fit the handles or rims and to hold the covers of other forms of dishes and vessels.

Another embodiment of the same inventive idea is shown in Figs. 5 and 6, where the blank of resilient elastic material isgiven a slightly different form, by bending downwardly on an upper edge of the rack portion to form'a clampingportion to'fit over a narrower projection on the vessel-such .as the rim of the guard 21, and the rack portion 22 is formed to open upwardly when so at tached. This form of holderis just as well adapted to general use with vessels as is the other, and perhaps more so, due to its clamping a fixed-size guard member, 21. p

In Figs. 7 and 8 there is shown a coverholder'adapted'for service with all forms of vessel-guards, and it comprises a rack portion 33having oneof its j aws 34 bent down wardly and then shaped to fit against the g'uard-memberQl near its rim,.where it can be attached in any suitablemanner but pref.- erably by soldering or.riveting.

Itisclear that this holder will do for any size or shape of vessel or guard and'thOugh very simple .and'made of only one piece of sheet-material, isnevertheless almost indispensable for vessels having separate covers,

I I claim 1. A cover holder for vessels having separate covers-comprising a strip of springysheet-material having a part thereof formed into a pair of spring jaws opening in one direction, one of said jaws being continued at right-angles to itself, a bend in said continuation'to form another pair of spring-j aws.

3. A cover-holder for vessels having'separate covers, comprising a strip of sheet-material bent twice upon itself at one end to form a 'pair'of spring-jaws, one of the sides of said jaws being continued upwardly from the open end of said jaws, and the rest of the strip being bent three times on itself from the upper end of said continuation to form another pair of spring-jaws. i v i V 4. A cover-holder for vessels having separate covers,'comprising a strip of sheet-material bent twice upon itself at one end to form a pair of spring-j aws, one of the sides of said jaws being continued upwardly from the open end of said jaws in a plane substantially at right angles to the plane of said jaws, and the rest of the strip being bentthrice on itself from the upper end of saidcontinuation to form another pair of spring-jaws.

arate covers,,comprising a stripof sheet-material bent upon itself at one end to form a pair of spring-j aws, one of the sides of said bent portion being continued upwardly from theopen end of the jaws, and the rest of the strip being bent on itself from the upper end of said, continuation downwardly towards said jaws to form a second pair of'springjaws, the bottom of saidsecond pair ofjaws contacting atoneportion with the first jaws and sloping upwardly and outwardly therefrom out of contact with the first pair of jaws.

V 5. A cover-holder for vessels having sep 6. The method of making utensil-lid holders of the class described, comprising taking a strip of resilient sheet material, cutting off one, end on acurved line, pressing saidend inwardly over the rest of the blank successively about two transversely spaced lines thereof,-pre'ssing the rest ofthe strip as a whole in a direction substantially at right angles to the firstdirection, and pressing the remaining flat portion of said strip about three transversely spaced lines thereof, successively towards said first portion, substantially parallel thereto, and then upwardly away therefrom. V

In'testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
