' HOLDER FOR CHRISTMAS TREES OR OTHER OBJECTS Filed April 16, 1934 Wc'zrncarz/fl @112 mien Patented Jan. 21, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE HOLDER FOR CHRISTMAS TREES OR OTHER OBJECTS This invention relates to holders for Christmas trees or other objects.

Generally stated, the object of the invention is to provide a novel and improved construction and arrangement whereby the weight of the tree or other object will be exerted in a manner to cause the holder to more tightly grip and hold the same in upright position.

It is also an object to provide certain details and features of construction tending to increase the general efliciency and desirability of a holder of this particular character.

To the foregoing and other useful ends, the invention consists in matters hereinafter set forth and claimed and shown in the accompanying drawing, in which-- i Fig. 1 is a plan view of a holder embodying the principles of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a vertical section on line 2-2 in Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view.

Fig. 4 is a detail section on a larger scale. Fig. 5 is a similar view showing the parts in different relative position.

As thus illustrated, the invention comprises a receptacle I provided around its rim with fulcrums 2 supported by pairs of spaced lugs 3, one of which is smaller than the other, as shown.

The legs 4 have feet 5 and upper ends 6, the latter engaging the tree or other object resting 30 at its lower end in the receptacle. Each leg has a bore 1 with an entrance 8 that will pass one of the lugs 3, the smaller of the pair, as shown. Each leg has a stop 9 that engages the rim of the receptacle to limit the movement of the ends 6 toward each other. It will be seen that one of the lugs 3, of each pair, is smaller than the other, so that the cylindrical fulcrum 2 may be inserted endwise into the bore 1 of the allotted leg, when 40 the parts are assembled, and so that the leg may be displaced laterally from the end of this fulcrum. But when the stops or lugs 9 are in engagement with the rim of the holder [,as' shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing, the legs are not removable laterally from the fulcrums 2, as this can 45 only be do'ne when the lugs are in the position shown in Fig. 5 of the drawing, as in that case the smaller arm 3 is then in position to pass through the opening 8 on the inner side of the arm. Also, when the steps or lugs 9 are in en- 50 gagement with the rim of the holder, the upper ends 6 of the legs cannot come together, and the structure cannot collapse to any extent, but will rest firmly on the floor, with the legs practically in normal position, regardless of whether or not 55 the tree is in position.

Thus the holder can beshipped and sold in a knocked-down condition. The user can easily assemble the four pieces of the holder, but it will be understood that the invention is not limited 60 to any particular number of legs.

a in upright position.

such condition the weight of the tree or other 5 object in the receptacle causes the ends 6 to more tightly engage and hold the tree or other object Td remove the legs, they are moved toward each other at their lower ends,

and then sidewise off the fulcrums 2 on the rim 10 of the cup. The legs are longer than the cup to hold the latter a distance above the fioor.

If it is a tree, water may be placed in the receptacle to retard wilting or drying of the tree.

What I claim as my invention is: 15

1. A holder for an upright object, comprising a downwardly tapered cup having its rim provided with a plurality of laterally projecting fulcrums, and legs detachably mounted on said fulcrums, each leg having an upper end portion 20 for engagement with said upright object, to hold the latter upright in said cup, and each fulcrum comprising a cylindrical portion connected at its ends to the cup by spaced arms one of which is smaller than the other, and each leg having a cylindrical bore to fit said cylindrical fulcrum portion, with a sldt at one side of the bore just wide enough to receive said smaller arm, when the upper end of the leg is tilted outwardly, whereby each leg is laterally insertable on and removable from its allotted fulcrum portio'n, and a lug on each leg for engagement with the rim of the cup, thereby to limit the movement of the upper ends of the legs toward each other, and preventing collapse of the structure when said object is not in the cup.

2. A holder for an upright object, comprising a downwardly tapered cup to support said upright object, and removable legs fulcrumed on projecting rim portions of the cup, each leg hav- 40 I ing an inwardly projecting lug for engagement with the rim of the cup, to limit the movement of the lower ends of the legs away from each other, preventing the upper ends of the legs from engaging each other and collapse of the structure when said object is not in the cup, and said legs having upper end portions for engagement with said object. 1

3. A structure as specified in claim 2, the legs being removable from the cup by first 'moving their lower ends toward each other, pivotally on said rim portions, and by then moving each leg sidewise axially of and out of engagement with said rim portions.

4. A structure as specified in claim 2, said rim portions having cylindrical fulcrums for the legs, spaced outwardly from the rim of the cup, and joined at their ends to the rim of the cup by integral spaced lugs.
