Oct. 5, 1937. v M. A. MACDONALD 9 LABEL.

Application August 21, 1935, Serial No. 37,112

3 Claims.

This inventionrelates to labels, price tickets and the like and particularly it pertains to such devices which are especially adapted for attachment to fruits and more particularly to such fruits as do not have their stems removed when offered for sale.

vide a label or price ticket which may be attached type constructed directly to the stem'of a fruit and which will be retained thereon without requiring the use of separate fastening or securing means.

It is a further object of the-invention to provide a novel structure in the form of a weakened area through which the stem of a fruit may be passed, thereby providing for attachment of the label to the stem of a fruit.

It is anotherobject of the invention to provide a new and improved structure whereby a plurality of holding elements in the form of finger like members are provided for engagement with the :stem of a fruit to retain the label thereon.

Still a further object of the invention resides in the provision of a label which is cheap of manufacture, simple of operation and which may be readily disposed of when no longer desired foruse.

Other objects of the invention will appear as thenature of the invention is better understood for which purpose reference will be had to the following specification and claims and to the accompanying drawing, wherein;

Figure 1 is a plan view illustrating a plurality of labels attached together, the labels being of a in accordance with the present invention, I

Figure 2 is a perspective view ona slightly enlarged scale of a single label,

Figure 3 is a perspective view illustrating a label constructed ,in'accordance with the present in vention attached to a fruit,

Figure 4 is a detail transverse sectional view on an enlarged scale showing a label constructed in accordance with the present invention attached to a fruit, and;

Figures 5 and 6 are detail plan views illustrating modified forms of labels constructed in accordance with the present invention.

A label constructed in accordance with the present invention consists of a centralbody portion In having wing extensions 1 I. The central body portion I0 may be of any desired shape as may also the wing extensions, and said Wing extensions may be provided with anysuitable indicia such as price marks, descriptions of the article to which the label isto be attached, and the like.

The label is formed from flexible material, preferably paper, although the material employed may consist of cloth, rubber or any other suitable material of a flexible nature. The central body portion Ill is provided With a weakened area, and this is preferably accomplished by the formation of a plurality of radially disposed slits through the body portion, although in lieu of slits, scores or other weakening means may be provided. These slits I2 preferably radiate from the central point designated it, which construction provides a plurality of radially disposed finger like elements it which terminate in their inner ends in relatively sharp ends l5.

In use, the stem of a fruit designated iii in Figures 3 and 4 is adapted to be passed through this weakened area of the label, and in so doing it forces the finger like elements i i out of the plane of the body of the label in such a manner that their sharp ends IE will engage the stem of the fruit to retain the label in place thereon. While the sharp ends of the finger like elements I4 will not necessarily pierce the stem it of the fruit, they will engage it with sufficient friction to retain the label in display position upon the stem.

In practice, it is preferable to form the labels attached to each other in a strip so that they may be rolled or folded and severed from the strip as desired for use. To accomplishthis the strip may be weakened at points designated 26 so that when ruptured, individual labels may be removed from the strip for use.

In the preferred form of the invention the wing extensions are of oval shape. In the modified form illustrated in Figure 5, these wing extensions which are designated 30 are of rectangular form, while in Figure 6 the wing extensions which are designated 32 are of circular form. In each instance they are attached together by a weakened line as described in connection with the preferred form of the invention.

In use the labels are detached from the strip, and after having been detached the stem of the fruit to which the label is to be attached is inserted through the weakened area, whereupon the finger like elements attain the position in which they are illustrated in Figures 3 and 4 and engage the fruit with sufiicient friction to retain the label in place thereon.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the present invention provides a new and improved label for attachment to the stems of fruit, which label will be securely retained in position upon the stem of a fruit, is simple in construction and operation, is cheap of-manufacture and.

which may be readily disposed of when no longer required for use.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new, is:

1. A label for fruit comprising a central body portion of relatively stiff paper, wings projecting from opposite points of the body portion, and simulating leaves; and a plurality of radially disposed slits through said body portion, said slits providing prongs converging in a common horizontal plane for gripping engagement with the stem of a fruit to secure the label thereto.

2. A label for attachment to the stems of fruit, said label comprising a central body portion of relatively stifi paper and having an aperture for receiving the stem, wings projecting from said central body portion and simulating leaves, and r prongs integral with said central body portion and having their ends converging at the aperture for gripping engagement with the stem to attach the label to the fruit. 7

3. A label for attachment to the stems of fruit, said label comprising a central body portion of relatively stiff paper and having an aperture for receiving the stern, integral wings projecting from opposite points of said central body portion and simulating leaves, and a plurality of sharply pointed fingers converging at the aperture and projecting from said body portion for gripping engagement with the stem at a substantially common horizontal plane to attach the label to the fruit.
