DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS In the exemplary embodiment of the invention as disclosed in FIGS. 1-5 of the drawing, an ornamental device generally designated 10 is shown to comprise a device such as for hanging on a support illustratively shown as a Christmas tree branch 11. Ornamental device 10 is adapted for personal identification with the user by utilization of an element to be viewed 12, such as a photograph or photographic transparency selected by the user and viewable in the device as will be brought out in greater detail here following. Illustratively, the device may be utilized in conjunction with pictures of the users family to provide a closely personal identification with a series of such devices hung on a Christmas tree or the like.

Ornamental device 10 may comprise a housing 13 provided with suitable means 14 for hanging the device on a suitable support. Structure 15 is provided within the housing for receiving and holding the element to be viewed. Means 16 are further provided within the housing for illuminating the element 12. Means 17 are car ried by the housing 13 for permitting viewing of the illuminated element. The entire ornamental device 10 is relatively light in weight and simple and economical of construction while yet providing improved personal identification with the device as by permitting the elements to be viewed to be personally identified with the user.

In the illustrated embodiment, the elements to be viewed comprise photographic transparencies. Thus, the illuminating means may comprise a lamp element 18 disposed rearwardly of the transparency 12 for transmission of light through the transparency and outwardly from housing 13 through the viewing means 17. In the illustrated embodiment, lamp element 18 comprises a conventional low wattage Christmas decoration lamp provided with suitable wires 19 which are brought out through the opening 20 in a cover 21 for connection to a suitable power supply (not shown) such as a receptacle outlet. Lamp 18 may comprise one of a series of such lamps in a string as desired. The lamp may be held in place in the housing by suitable bracket means 22 permitting facilitated installation and removal of the lamp such as for maintenance purposes.

Housing 13 may define any desirable shape and in the illustrated embodiment comprises a globe having a projecting tubular portion 23 at the upper end thereof capped by cover 21. The globe may be formed of a suitable lightweight material, such as plastic, glass, etc.,

and illustratively may be light transmitting for improved aesthetic effect. Where the globe is formed of a translucent material, the light transmission therethrough from lamp 18 provides a highly desirable general glowing appearance.

Hanging means 14 may comprise a suitable hanger having a pair of legs 24 received below the topwall 25 'of cap 21, and a loop hanger portion 26 projecting upwardly through the opening 20 such as for hanging the device from a Christmas tree branch or the like. Legs 24 may be resilient to facilitate passage thereof through opening 20 in mounting the hanger on cover 21. Holder illustratively comprises a frame provided with a center opening 27 aligned with the lamp l8 and viewing means .17 as best seen in FIG. 3. In the illustrated embodiment, holder 15 is arranged to suitably carry a transparency introduced thereinto through an upwardly opening slot 28 in the housing 13 adjacent tubular portion 23. lllustratively, the transparency may comprise a conventional 35 mm. transparency. The device may be adapted for mounting different size transparencies as desired. To provide improved illumination of the-transparency, a diffusing sheet 29 may be mounted rearwardly on the frame. Further, the inner surface adjacent lamp 22 may be provided with a reflective coating 30 as seen in FIG. 4 to provide improved efficiency in illumination of the transparency.

Viewing means 17 may-comprise a suitable lens 31 which may be formed of suitable material such as plastic, glass, etc. The lens is preferably formed of plastic to minimize the weight of the ornamental device and effectively minimize the cost thereof. The lens is mounted in a suitable opening 32 in housing 13 and may be secured therein by suitable adhesive means 33 as desired. A tubular duct 34 may be provided extending between holder 15 and lens 31 to limit viewing within the housing to the area of the transparency 12. Light from lamp 18 may pass around the outside of tubular element 34 to illuminate the forward portions of the housing 13 where the housing is light-transmitting and such light transmission is desired.

As seen in FIG. 5, the transparency 12 may be readily viewed through lens 31 to provide a personal identification with the ornamental device by suitable selection of the transparency. lllustratively, a series of such omamental devices may be hung on a Christmas tree with each of the devices carrying a picture of a different one of the users family. As holder 15 permits ready installation and removal of the transparency, the transparency may be readily changed from time to time to keep pace with changes in the users family or retained permanently therein as desired by the user. Where the housing is light-transmitting, the ornament functions somewhat in the manner of an ornamental lamp as the device not only provides for viewing of the transparency, but provides a general illumination of the tree.

Balancing of the device may be effected by suitably selecting the weight and positioning of lens 31, holder 15, and illuminating means 16.

Holder 15 is provided with a cutout portion 35 permitting the passage of lamp 18 therethrough such as for use in installing and removing the lamp as for maintenance thereof. The lamp is preselected to pass through the tubular portion 23 of housing 13 upon removal of the cover 21.

The invention further comprehends providing a plurality of such elements to be viewed within the housing. lllustratively, as seen in FIG. 6, a pair of transparencies 12a and 12b may be provided within the housing for viewing through oppositely disposed lenses 31a and 31b. Lamp 18a may comprise a dual lamp for illuminating both transparencies from a center portion thereof within housing 13. Suitable brackets 220 may be provided extending between the transparency holders 15a and 15b for carrying the lamp removably within the housing. Thus, ornamental device 10a, as shown in FIG. 6, permits use of a number of elements to be used within each ornamental device. The elements may illustratively be identical so that the same view will be obtained through each of the viewing portions of the device or may comprise different pictures as desired.

In illustrating the invention, the element to be viewed has been shown as a transparency. As discussed above, the element may comprise a conventional photograph which may be in black and white, or color as desired. Where the element comprises a photograph, the lamp is preferably mounted forwardly of the photograph such as adjacent the bottom of housing 13 as shown in dotted lines in FIG. 3. Where the device is adapted for use with such a photograph, the tubular device 34 may be provided with a suitable opening (not shown) in alignment with the lamp l8 and photograph 12 to permit illumination of the surface of the photograph by the lamp.
