CHARLES N. LEONARD, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA.
PILLOW-HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 359,617, dated March 22, 1887.
Application filed May 15, 1886.
To on whom it may concern.-
Be it known that 1, CHARLES N. LEONARD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana,have invented'a new and useful Improvement in Pillow-Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an improved means for holding a pillow While a pillow-case is drawn over it.
The object of my improvement is to provide alight frame adapted to engage a pillow at one end, and to form a rigid support along opposite edges and one end thereof, whereby the pillow may be easily thrust into its case and the frame then withdrawn, all as hereinafter fully described.
The accompanying drawings illustrate my invention.
Figure 1 is a plan of my pillow-holder when constructed mainly of wood and adapted to be adjusted as to width and length and to be folded so as to occupy a small space. Fig. 2 represents the holder applied to a pillow. Fig. 3 illustrates the manner of using the holder. Fig. 4 is a plan in full lines,on a reduced scale, and showing in dotted lines the holder extended laterally and longitudinally. Fig. 5 represents the holder folded up. Fig. 6 represents the holder, formed of wire and nonadjustable. Fig. 7 is a section, on an enlarged scale, at 7, Fig. 1. Figs. 8, 9, and 10 are similar sections at 8, 9, and 10, Fig. 1. Fig. 11 is asection showing the manner of attaching the pillow to the frame. Fig. 12 is asection showing another means for attaching the pillow.
My pillow-holder consists, essentially, of a three-sided rectangular frame, having the two longer sides adapted at their disconnected ends to engage and hold two opposite corners of one end of a pillow, the pillow being held between said sides. Fig.6 represents such a frame in its simplest form, the frame A being formed of one continuous piece of wire, bent to form three sides of a parallelogram, and having formed on the disconnected ends of two opposite sides the hooks I) b, to which the corners of a pillow may be attached in such a manner 'as to permit the withdrawal of the frame after the frame and pillow have been thrust into a pillow-case.
For the purpose of adapting one frame to Serial No. 202,327. (No model.)
be used on pillows of different sizes, I prefer to form each side of the frame of two light strips of wood, as B O, l) E, and F H, Fig. 1, each pair of said strips being held together, so as to slide longitudinally upon each other, by suitable clips, 6 a, secured to one piece and embracing the other, and the pieces being held in adjustment by set-screws j j. The corners of the frame are secured together by metallic corner-pieces k k. Said corner-pieces may be rigidly secured to both of the sides forming the corner, thus forming arigid frame, or they may be rigidly secured to one or the other of said sides and pivoted to the other, so that the sides may be folded upon each other, as shown in Fig. 5, the frame in that case being temporarily held in shape by the brace-rods Z Z. (Shown in detail in Fig. 8.)
For the purpose of attaching the corners of thepillow to the open end of the frame, pins m m are inserted in the ends of pieces B and D. Said pins project from the ends of said pieces", and are adapted topass easily through loops n n sewed to the corners of the pillow. In place of pins m m, the ends of pieces B and D may be tapered and cleft, as at 0, Fig. 12, the corner of the pillow in that case being inserted in the cleft and secured by sliding the ring r backward.
The operation of my deviceis clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The holder having been adjusted to the width, and length of the pillow, and the corners of the pillow secured to the open end of the frame, as before explained, the pillow and its case are laid on a suitable support, as the bed, the end of the frame resting against the body of the operator, and the open end of the pillow-case being held in both hands, the frame carrying the pillow is easily thrust into the case, after which the frame is withdrawn, thus making a pleasure of what has heretofore been a difficult task.
I claim as my invention 1. A new article of manufacture consisting of a three sided substantially rectangular frame, having the free end of two of its sides provided with pins adapted to engage two opposite corners of a pillow, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
2. A pillow-holder consisting of a threesided substantially rectangular frame, having the free ends of two of its sides provided with pins adapted to engage two opposite corners of a pillow, and having each of two of its sides formed of two pieces adapted to slide longitudinally one upon the other, and means for adj ustabl y securing said pieces together, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
A pillow-holder consisting of a threesided folding frame having its several sides pivoted together, substantially as shown and described, braces for temporarily securing said sides in position, whereby a substantially rectangular frame is formed, and a pair of pins projecting from the free ends of two of
