REvolvINc eLowER-sTAN D.
lSIEUIFllICQA'lIOlN forming 'pa-rt of Letters Patent No 542,346, dated Julv 9, 1895. n
To all whom tm/ay concern:
`Be it known that I, ANDERS C. NlnLsnN, a citizen ofthe United States, residing at Tyler, inthe county of Lincoln and State of Minne sota, have invented a new and useful Revolving Flower-Stand, of which the following is a specification. v Y
Thisinvention relates to an improvement 1n flower-stands of that class known as revolving stands, especially designed for supporting pot-s .of flowers and also useful for supporting merchandise in stores and other places.
The object of the present invention is to provide an ornamental revolving stand, especially' adaptedfor use in parlors andsittingrooms and in rbay-windows, which shall be simple in construction, strong and durable in ,practice, and 'easy of manipulation.
Tliinvention consists in a stand for dowers, dac., comprising a series of concentric revolving shelves, a vertical vcentral support a perspective View of a revolving flower-stand constructed in accordance with my improvements. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectionl through the same, showing the manner of supporting the several concentric shelves and the disks to which the supporting rods or bracesextend. Similarnumerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several figures of the' drawings.
. Referring to the drawings, 1 indicates a centrally-arranged hollow standard or tubu-v lar support upon which a series of concentric shelves 2, 3, and 4 are revolubly mounted. At
the lower end, the standard'1 is provided with" a number of supporting-legs projecting radially therefrom and connected therewith in any convenient manner, but preferably screwthreaded at their inner ends, as indicated at 5, to engage corresponding screw-threaded sockets in a plug` or casting 6, inserted in the lower end of the tubular supporter standard.`v
Appncatlon nieu maren 14, 1.895. Serial No. calf/u l. (No model.)
The outer lower ends of the legs` are preferably bifurcated or provided "with parallel arms?, between which a caster 8 is journaled. 55
The several circular shelves 2, 3, and '4 are .each provided with an outer rim or periph.-
eral band 9, which is connected-with av small sleeve 10, surrounding the tubular support 1, by means of connecting radial bars er1-6o spokes 11, upon which are arranged concen-v tric rings 12 of wire, which form an open-wire flooring upon which the pots of flowers or other articles may rest. A series of collars 13, one for each of the revolving shelves, surrounds the tubular standard, the same being secured in place by means of pins 14C, extend'L ing through perforations in said collars and also in the tubular standard. The inner sleeves 10 of the shelves rest immediately 7o above and upon such collars lthereby-sup-V- porting the shelves at a central point.
A corresponding series of. similar collars 15 y surround the hollow standard 1, one just b elow each collar 13, above described, and `detachably secured in place on said hollow standard by means of a removable pin 16. Just above each collar 15 and between it .and the lcollar 13 a perforated disk or dat ring 17 surrounds-.the hollow standard, and has formed-8o near its outer edge or periphery a series of perforations 18. of wires,I rods, or braces 19 extend outwardly and downwardly to and connect with suitable eyes 20, attached to the shelf next below said disk, at or near the periphery thereof. Then the shelf is revolved the disk 17'v and the connecting brace rods or wires are revolved.therewith, and each shelf is thus independently supported and capable of being 9o revolved without atecting the other shelves.
An important advantage of this stand is that cach revolving shelf is supported centrally upon the standard around which itturns, and is also further supported at its outer edge` or periphery by means ot' the inclined brace rods or wires and the revolving disk to which said wires are connected near the hollow standard.
Another advantage is that by removing loo I the' pins Hand 1 6 and loosening the collars 13 and 15 described the shelves may all bo removed frointhe standard. 1 for storage or transportation. The legs may also be 1111- From the disk 1'7 a series screwed from the standard, thus enabling the whole device to he packed in n very ein-ill compass. lhe npperend of the hollow stundnrd or tubular support l may be provided with an ornamental carp-piece or cup adapted to receive a single pot of flowers, as indicated at 21.
Various changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the prin ciple or sacriicing any of the advantages of this invention.
Having thus described my in vcntion, what I claim is* 1. A snpportingstand for flowers, merchnndise, the.` comprising s series of. concentric revolving shelves, a standard or support therefor', and n series of collars surrounding said standardu or support upon which said shelves rest, in combination with n corresponding serics of perforated disks, supporting collars therefor surrounding ,r tid standard or snpport, and e. series ot` inelined connecting wires or braces, all arranged substantially as end for the purpose specified.
2. A separable or knoclcdojwn flower stand, comprising n cen trally arranged hollow standard, a series of concentric revoluble shelves mounted thereon, n corresponding series of revoluble perforated disks also surrounding said standards, and the interposed connecting Wires or braces between said shelves and disks, in combination with e series of sliding and detachable collars for supporting seid shelves and disks, and the removable pins for holding seid collars in position, solistentially es described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto niixed my signature in the presence ot' two witnesses.
