JOSEPH BLOCLOF BROOKLYN, new YORK, ASSIGNOR- To NOMA RLEcT -Io'coRro A- TION, or NEW YoRK, N. Y., A CORPORATION or NEwYoRR DECORATIVE ILLUMINATING DEVICE Application filed December 17, 1929. Serial No. 414,653.

This invention relates to decorative illuminating devices.

Among the objects of this invention is to provide a neat, compact and rugged device of the character described which may be made in a wide variety of shapes and designs, which shall be of economical construction, comprise few and simple parts, easy to assemble and which shall yet be practical,

eflicient and decorative to a high degree.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims.

In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention,

Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a device embodying the invention with some of the lamps removed from their sockets;

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 22 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a portion of the device illustrating the method of assembling the same.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, 10 designates the device embodying the invention and which comprises gene-rally a frame 11 mounting a plurality of electric lamps 12. For the purpose of illustration only, the frame is shown in the shape of a star, it being understood, however, that any suitable decorative design such as a crescent, diamond, circle shield or the like may be provided by properly bending and shaping the frame, the construction of said frame, as will hereinafter appear, being readily adapted for forming the same in a plurality of shapes.

Said frame 11 comprises a pair of parallel, concentric members 13 and 14 such as metal wires or the like, bent and shaped to the desired configuration. The inner wire 14 may be made in several parts spot welded or otherwise attached to each other as at 15, portions mination. .Near the corners 22 of the star,

the rings 19, may be attached to adjacent angularly disposed portionsof the outer wire 13. Therings obviously provide. reinforce I ment for the frame sin'cethey form anumber of interconnecting members for attaching the inner wire frame to the outer wire frame 13." The rings-19 arefurthermore preferably split as at 25 for the purpose'hereinafter described. 1 r f i Mounted within each of-the ring members19 isa lamp. socket 27. Said sockets are preferably of the pin type, being provided with an outwardly flanged front portion 28 and with a rear portion having parala lel grooves 29 and pins 30 extendinginto the said grooves, and connected to, thevcentral contact and screw shell of'said socket in any suitable manner. The outer end of each socket 27 is provided with a screw threaded portion 31 for receiving'a cap member 32." Upon screwing said cap member 32 onto the screw threaded portion 31, a pair of insulated conductors 331received in said-grooves 29 are pressed against the pins 30 which pierce the insulation for contacting the conductor wires, thus electrically connecting the socket in parallel across said conductors. It will thus be noted that the socket portion 27 may first be inserted into the ring mounting member 19, the conductor wires inserted into the grooves, and the cap member 32 then applied in the manner hereinabove described. The flange 28, as well as the outer rim portion 35 of the cap 32 is larger than the inner di ameter of the ring 19. Thus once the socket has been assembled on the ring the same cannot be removed due to the enlarged portions 28 and on both sides of the ring. This construction thus provides means whereby loss of the sockets from the mounting members 19 will be prevented.

Since the rings 19 are split, the same may resiliently engage the sockets for tightly gripping and retaining the same against movement. As shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing, one end of each of said conductors 33 is connected to a socket 37 whereas the other end is attached to a plug member 38, whereby the device 10 may be attached either to a source of electrical power or to similar units in parallel. The bulbs 40'When mounted in 1 the sockets 27, it will be noted, cover the socket and loop 19, so that when the lamps are illuminated, said loops and sockets may not be seen from the front of the device'thus presenting a highly decorative and artistic effect.

It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

' As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment If above set forth, it is to'be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus described my invention I claim as new and desire-to secure by-Letters Patent:

5 '1. A decorative device of the character described'comprising a frame formed of a pair of parallel members, rings fixed to and interconnecting said members, and lamp sockets mounted on said rings, said rings being split for tightly gripping said sockets. g

2. A decorative illuminating unit comprising-a frame having a pair of spaced concen- -tric coplanar members, and a plurality of spaced interconnecting split ring members attached at diametric points thereof directly to said concentric members and disposed in the same plane therewith, said ring members serving to space said concentric members a distance apart substantially equal to the outer diameter of said ring members.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.

JOSEPH BLOCK.
