Roberts, Flushing, NY. (37 Moultrie St., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11222) Filed Sept. 27, 1967, Ser. No. 670,956
Int. Cl. G09f 1/12 US. Cl. 40-158 6 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE The base of the mounting construction consists of a central stiff base member on each side of which are positioned frame members, the inner edges of which are imprinted with gold leaf, with the outer edges being incut at their corners. These sheets are then assembled by a stitching arrangement to engage an edge covering of gold or other decorative plastic sheet materials, and particularly gold covered Mylar, which is a polyethylene terephthalate.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a picture mounting arrangement, and it particularly relates to a picture mounting which may be used for individual mounting of the pictures or for mounting of the pictures in an album or booklet.
It is among the objects of the present invention to provide a decorative laminated double face mounting frame which will give a rich gold border appearance and at the same time be simply constructed.
Another object is to provide a novel mounting structure which will give an appearance of a gold finish both interiorly and exteriorly, devoid of any stitiched appearance, and which may be readily used for a wedding album.
Still further objects and advantages will appear in the more detailed description set forth below, it being understood, however, that this more detailed description is given by way of illustration and explanation only and not by way of limitation, since various changes therein may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.
In accomplishing the above objects, it has been found most satisfactory to first provide abase relatively stiff piece of paper tag stock which may vary in thickness from .008" to .015, and desirably will be about .010. This sheet may either be used as the base of a mounting structure for pictures or as a basis to form an album page.
The frame elements which are positioned on each side of the base element are desirably of similar base tag stock and may be of the same thickness or slightly less thickness by .002 to .005. These frame elements have the same height as the base element, but are desirably a little shorter and are mounted so that their outside edges coincide with the base sheet edges but terminate short of the inside edge of the base sheet.
Desirably, the frame elements have incuts at their out side corners and it has been found most satisfactory to have the sides of the frame with a width of about /2 to /3 of the width of the top and bottom of the frame. The frame elements should expose between 50 to 70% of the base element on each side.
The inside edges of the frame elements are imprinted or covered with a gold foil opposite the cut-outs on the outside edges. Along the three sides, top, bottom and outside edges, these two frame elements and base element are then stitched together by a plastic edging or a gold covered Mylar, with the stitching being placed substantially inside of the outer and top edges of the frame element and with the result that the outside of each frame element will then be entirely covered with a gold finish, the upper, lower and outside edges being covered with a 3,461,585 Patented Aug. 19, 1969 plastic strip whereas the inside edges will be covered by imprinting.
This gold edging may extend between .030" to .060" and desirably will be about .040. Then there is applied to both frames on both sides of the base sheet a pyroxylin coated washable paper stock about .014 to .020".
These framing sheets are gold voered or stamped on their inner edges and they are of slightly less width and height than the aforementioned frame, so that they will slightly uncover the gold edging which has been previously applied to the frame sheets. These outside frames are desirably held in position by flexible glue and at the cut-out corners they may be held in position by clips.
The projecting edge of the base sheet which projects on the inside edge of the frames may then be covered by a. fabric and beyond the edge of the base sheet it may serve to hold a rod or pivot member or other type of mounting structure. This fabric member may be a fabric of .070" in thickness and the mounting rod may be of stainless steel and vary from A to of an inch.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists of the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter more specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which fall within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

FIG. 7 is a fragmentary, transverse, sectional view upon the line 77 of FIG. 5, upon an enlarged scale as compared to FIG. 5;
FIG. 8 is a top perspective view of the final mounting member with the hinge pin assembled therewith, upon the same scale as FIGS. 2 and 5;
FIG. 9 is a transverse vertical sectional view upon the line 99 of FIG. 8, upon an enlarged scale as compared to FIG. 8; and
FIG. 10 is a transverse sectional view of the comer of FIG. 8 upon the line 10-49 of FIG. 8, upon an enlarged scale as compared to FIG. 8.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Referring to FIG. 1, there is shown step I involving the assembling together of a central base sheet A and top and bottom frame sheets B and C. The base sheet may be between 11 and 12", and preferably about 11%" in width and between 10 /2 and 11 in height, and preferably about 10% in height.
The base sheet has an inside edge 10 and an outside edge 11, and top and bottom edges 12 and 13. The edge 10 may be a hinge end when the mounting is set up so as to be employed in an album.
The top and bottom frames have the inside or hinge edges 14 and 15, the outside edges 16 and 17, the top edges 18 and 19, and the bottom edges 20 and 21. The outside edges 16 and 17 are imprinted or covered with a gold imprinting or gold leaf at 22 and 23 upon their outside faces.
The inside corners, as indicated at 24 and 25 for the frame B and 26 and 27 for the frame C, are cut out to prevent undue thickness at the hinge or inner sides of the assembled sheets. These sheets A, B, and C are desirably of base tag stock about .010", with the base sheet A being desirably about 10 to 20% heavier than the frame sheets B and C.
In the frame sheets B and C the inside portions are cut out, leaving the top edges 23 and 29, the bottom edges 30 and 31 and the side edges 32 and 33, and the inner side edges 34 and 35. The inside frame portions 26 and 37 may have a width of about Vs" to 1", which may be the same or about 10 to 20% wider than the outside frame edges at 38 and 39.
The top and bottom frame portions 40, 41, 42 and 43 may have a width about 15 to 30% greater than the width of the side frame portions 36-39, and these widths may be in the neighborhood of 1% to 2%". The cut-outs at 24 and 25 may be A x A. The gold imprinting 22 and 23 is about to and desirably about The sheet A and the frames B and C are then assemibled together so that the outer edges 10, 14 and 15 coincide. The upper edges 12, 18 and 19 should also coincide, as should the lower edges 13, 20' and 21.
Then this assembly is attached together by means of the strips 50, 51 and 52 which are folded over the assembled edges 121819 and -14-15 and 1320-21. These folded-over strips overlap at the corners 53 and 54 and they terminate at 56 and 57 and they are stitched in position as indicated at 58, 59 and 60.
Since the base sheet A is longer than the frame sheets B and C, there will be a projection 51 adjacent the hinge edge 11. The frame edges 28, 30, 32 and 34 will be outwardly encircled by gold banding 22, 50, 51 and 52. The strips 50, 51 and 52 may be Mylar strips vacuum coated by aluminum or gold and they may have a total width of about /2 with half of the Width being folded on each side of the assembled strips.
This will be the basic page structure, closed at its outer and top and bottom edges by the strips 50, 51 and 52 and permitting insertion at 62 of photographs at each side of the base sheet A. As indicated in the sections of FIGS. 3 and 4, the strip 51 will cover at 63 the edges 10, 14 and and the side portions 64 and 65 will be stitched by stitching 59, which is desirably closer to the edges 66 and 67 than to the outer portion 63.
The sheeets A, B and C will be held together by the stitching 59. The gold imprinting at 22 and 23, together with the edging 51 will give an outside gold frame to the assembled sheet.
Referring to FIG. 4, the assembled lower edge portions are connected by the strip 52 having the stitching 54, which should be closer to the edges 68 and 69 than to the covering portion 70. The base sheet A will be stitched together with the marginal portions 42 and 43 of the frame sheets B and C, with the edges 13, and 21 being all well secured together.
Referring to FIG. 5, there has been placed upon the inside frames B and C the outside frames D and B.
As shown in the sectional views of FIGS. 6 and 7, the side frame edges of the outside frames D and E should coincide with the outside frame edges of the inside frames B and C. For example, in FIG. 6 the inside frame edges 32 and 34 of the frame B will coincide with the inside frame edges 90 and 91 of the frame D.
Also, the frame edges 33 and 35 of the frame C will coincide with the frame edges 92 and 93 of the frame E. Similarly, the frame edges 30 and 31 will coincide with the frame edges 94 and 95 of the outside frames D and B.
These outside covering frames D and E terminate short 4 of the outside edges of the inside frames B and C. As shown in FIG. 6, the outside edge 96 will terminate short of the edge 14 of the frame B, but will extend sufliciently far to cover the stitching 59.
Similarly, on the bottom the edge 97 will terminate short of the edge 15 but will extend sufiiciently far to cover the stitching 59. On the inside adjacent the hinge edge 11, the edges 96 and 97 will terminate in the middle of the area 2223 of the gold leaf or gold imprinting on the inside edges 16 and 17 of the frame element B and C.
These outside frames D and E are held in position by means of the plastic adhesive or glue 98 and 99, which will cover the entire inner face thereof.
In FIG. 7, the edges 100 and 101 will terminate short of the edges 20 and 21, but will cover the stitching 60 of the covering strip 52. At the same time, the inside edges 90, 91, 94 and 102 of the outer frame D, for example, will be covered by gold leaf or imprinted in gold as indicated at 103, 104, 105 and 106.
It will be noted in this manner it is possible to give an outside and inside edging of gold with all stitching 59 and 60 being covered. These gold inside edgings are duplicated on the lower frames E as indicated at 107 and 108 in FIG. 6 and 109 in FIG. 7.
This double inside and outside gold framing will give a most satisfactory appearance to the mounting sheet and the double frames B and D on one side of the base sheet A, and E and C on the other side of the base sheet A will give the necessary body to hold the photographs in position and at the same time the edgings 50, 51 and 52 will permit flexing of the outer edges without breakage of the connection.
This mount in itself may be satisfactory for display or maintenance of pictures and if desired transparent cover sheets may be inserted inside of the photographs on each side of the base sheet A. As indicated in FIGS. 3 and 6, the pictures and their transparent covers, if any, are inserted as indicated by the arrows 62 over the extension portion 61 of the central and base ply or sheet A, which may be the heaviest individually of any of the sheets, by covering part of the gold edging at 22 and 23 as well as the stitched binding tapes 50, 51 and 52, and particularly the stitching 58, 59 and 60.
An inside edging of gold is accomplished which appears to be identical whether it be imprinted or formed by means of tapes. Furthermore, the cut- outs 24, 25, 26 and 27 will give a reduced thickness at these corners, enabling the assembly to be made without undue heaviness at the outside corners.
Where the sheets are to be mounted in an album or as pages the structure as shown in FIG. 8 may be employed. The projecting portions 61 may be covered on each side by a fabric (see also FIG. 9) which Will cover the entire area 61 and also have extensions at 126 which encircle the pivot rod 127 as indicated at 128.
The cover sheet 125 terminates at 129, just short of the outside edges 16 and 17 of the inside frames B and C and is attached in place by means of glue or adhesive 130 which extends over to the portion 131 and at 132 around the post. It will be noted by reference to FIG. 6 that the ends 133 extends as far as the tape connections 50 and 52 and that the cover sheet 125126 is cut inwardly as indicated at so that these edges at 150 are substantially inside the edges 151 of the extension portion 61 of the base sheet A.
In addition, at the outside corners there are positioned metal angle clips 152 Which press the laminations into the recess 24, 25, 26, and 27 and extend as indicated at 153 over the overlapping tapes 50 and 51 and the stitching 58 and 59. This structure will be readily handled and will be most decorative and of light weight and will readily display the photograph. Although of five laminations, it will present a flat, compact construction.
As many changes could be made in the above picture mounting arrangement, and many widely different embodiments of this invention could be made without departing from the scope of the claims, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
