UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FOUNTAIN PEN DESK STAND Herman K. Stempel and Samuel L. Daugherty,
Fort Madison, Iowa, assignors to W. A. Sheaffer Pen Company, Fort vMadison, Iowa, a corporation of Delaware Application May 24, 1937, Serial No. 144,394 10 Claims. (01.120-108) This invention relates to a fountain pen desk complete understanding of the characteristic stand and has special reference to a stand comfeatures of this invention, reference may now be prising a base having a receptacle for receiving had to the following description when taken toa fountain pen mounted for movement rotatably gether with the accompanying drawing, in which of the base and in desired predetermined posilatter: 5 tions of angular adjustment relative thereto.

The body section of the base; member is provided with a polygonal periphery Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 with a changand the socket member has resilient arms cone P s o the Socket and y 1 11 0 mem- 15 forming substantially to and frictionally engag- .bers; and

Thus, the fountain pen thereon and of various shapes to make it desirable is always held in readiness for use and the angle from the standpoint of appearance.

Arms be more particularly pointed out, and for a more 20 e e d f o the free ds o the portions I9 55 and conform substantially to and frictionally engage at least a portion of the angularly disposed faces of the body member IS.
A pen receiving receptacle 2| is fixedly mounted on the body member I8, the receptacle being preferably formed of a pyroxylin plastic product or of other well known compositions and has an upper end opening for receiving and for sealing the writing point end of a fountain pen. The lower closed end of the pen receiving receptacle is provided with athreaded metallic shank 22 which engages an internally threaded aperture 23 of the body member l8.
The socket member 15 is preferably formed of a single piece of spring stock and may be plated with nickel, chromium, or the like, for attractiveness and the polygonal brass rod may likewise be plated of the same material to match the socket in appearance. The arms 20 are opposed and frictionally engage the surfaces to which they conform in shape and retain the receptacle in a desired position of angular adjustment. However, by reason of their resiliency the arms 20* permit relative movement between the body member l8 and the socket member l5 as shown more particularly in Fig. 3 so that the receptacle may occupy a changed position such as substantially in parallel relation with the base when it is desired to store or ship the same and may be readily moved to a position when in use such that the fountain pen of the receptacle may be grasped in the manner usually held for writing. The arms 20 of the socket are provided with a slot 24 of sufficient width to accommodate that portion of the shank 22 or receptacle 2! as must necessarily pass therethrough when the body member [8 is moved to a changed position.
While but a single embodiment of this invention is her in shown and described, it is to be understood that various modifications thereof may be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of this invention and, therefore, the same is only to be limited by the scope of the prior art and the appended claims.
