Description

Patented Sept. 27, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE LAMP SHADE Theophile A. Stiflel, Chicago, Ill.

Applcation May 17, 1947, Serial No. 748,758

4 Claims. 1

This invention relates to improvements in lamp shades.

One of the objects of this invention is to provide an improved means and method of connecting a lamp shade body to the spider.

Another object is to provide an eiicient, quick and inexpensive means and. method of manufacturing lamp shades.

Other objects will become apparent as this description progresses.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a lamp shade with my invention applied thereto.

Fig. 2 is a view showing the upper ring and the shade portion prior to assembly.

Fig. 3 is a view taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 1, and showing in dotted lines the method of uniting the parts.

Fien 4 is a side elevational view of the connecting clip, and

Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view of same.

The body of the shade H1 is clamped between an upper metal ring 12 and a lower metal ring I4. The upper metal ring I2, best shown in Figs. 2 and 3, and intially shaped like that shown in Fig. 2, is channel shaped, having a fiat top portion l6, an inner side I8, and a longer outer side '20. The outer side is partly curved adjacent the top as at 22 and the lower marginal portion as at 24, with an intermediate flat decorative portion 26. The inner side of the ring is inclined inwardly as at 28 and then bent outwardly as at 30 so that when first postioned on the body of the shade it will temporarily hold the parts in position before the crimping operation,

The connecting metal clips, generally indicated at 32 are secured to the spokes 34 of the spider 36. The metal clip 32 has a right angled shaped end to form a flat horizontal portion 38 and a flat vertical portion 4!) and is bent inwardly upon itself to form a split tubular horizontal portion 42. The connecting clips are first secured to the ends of the spokes of the spider by crimping the tubular portion about the end of the spoke, leaving the right angle ends exposed. The body of the shade in is formed and the spider 36 is positioned on top of the shade body Ill with the right angled portion of the clips restng against the top II and inner top side wall I3 of the shade body. The top metal ring |2 is then placed over same and the metal ring is then crimped to the shade body, as shown in Fig. 3, by a pair of rollers 44, one of which acts against the outer side portion 26 and the other against the inner side portions 28 and 38. After the rollers have compressed the sides together, the metal ring I'2 will be shaped like that shown in Fig. 3, With the inner side I8 shaped to form an inward portion 48 and a flat portion 48. The shade body, connecting clips and spider will then be permanently united.

The split portion 5!) of the upper ring instead of being welded or otherwise secured as is the present practce can be securely fastened together by positioning the connecting clip therebetween, so that the clip bridges the ends, as best shown in Fig. 1, and when the parts are crimped together, the ends of the metal ring will be as positively secured together as though they had been welded.

I claim:

1. A lamp shade comprising a shade body, a spider having wire spokes, connecting metal clips crimped about the ends of said wire spokes and permanently and fixedly secured to the ends of said spokes, said clips having flat right angled shaped surfaces engaging the top and inner top side wall of the shade body and a split ring permanently crimped around the top of the shade and permanently enclosing the right angled surfaces of the clips, one of said clips bridging the split of said ring.

2. A lamp shade comprising a shade body, a spider having spokes, connecting clips permanently and. fxedly secured to the ends of said spokes, said clips having fiat right angled shaped surfaces engaging the top and inner top side wall of the shade body, and a ring permanently secured to the top of the shade and permanently enclosing the right angled surfaces of the clips.

3. A lamp shade comprising a shade body, a spider having spokes, connecting clips crimped about the ends of said spokes and permanently and fixedly secured to the ends of said spokes, said clips having fiat right angled shaped surfaces engaging the top and inner top side wall of the shade body, and a ring permanently crimped around. the top of the shade and permanently enclosing the right angled surfaces of the clips.

4. A lamp shade comprising a shade body, a spder havng spckes, connecting clips crmped about the ends of said spokes and permanently and fixedly secured to the ends of sad spokes, said clips having fiat: rght ang1ed shaped surfaces engagng the top of the shade body and a split ring permanently crimped around the top of the shade and enclosng the rght angled surfaces of the clips, one of said clips bridging the split of said ring.
