J. E. DUO-LITTLE. FLOWER STAND.

No. 554,661. 4 Patented Feb. 18, 1896;

llNirn STATES ATENT FFICE.

JOHN E. DOOLITTLE, OF NAPLES, NEW YORK.

FLOWER-STAN D.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 554,661, dated February 18, 1896.

7 Application filed April 16, 1895. Serial No. 545,960. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JOHN E. DOOLITTLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Naples, in the county of Ontario and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Flower-Stand, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in flower-stands.

The object of the present invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive flowerstand which will enable flowers and similar plants to be supported at the desired elevation and to be artistically arranged.

Another object of the invention is to provide a support for flowerpots and the like which will be adapted to catch and retain any water leaking from the pots, and to enable the flowers to be supplied with water without removing them from the stand.

The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claim hereto appended.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective View of a flower-stand constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View of the lower portion of the stand. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the adjustable clip of the supporting-arms. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of one of the supporting-plates.

Like numerals of reference indicate correspondingparts in all the figures of the drawings.

1 designates a central vertical standard constructed of tubular metal, and having its lower portion stepped in and journaled on a tripod-base 2, the upper portion of the standard carrying a series of horizontally-disposed adjustable arms 3. The tripod-support is composed of three legs 4, which are connected at their upper ends by a disk 5, and three braces 6 converging upward from the lower ends of the legs, and supporting a bearing or socket 7. The disk 5 is provided with an opening to receive the standard, and the bearing or socket 7 is located directly below the opening of the disk 5 and receives and supports the lower end of the standard. The upper portions of the legs are curved outward and the lower portions are curved inward to present an ornamental and attractive position, and the inclined converging braces 6 are similarly curved.

Each horizontal supporting-arm 3 is provided at its inner end with an adjustable clip 8, which is substantially U shaped to provide an upper arm, 9, and a lower arm, 10. The upper arm, 9, is provided with a perforation to receive the standard, and the lower arm, 10, is bifurcated and loosely engages the standard at a point below the arm and the weight of a flower or plant holds the lower arm 10, against the standard with sufficient pressure to prevent any liability of the arms accidentally slipping downward on the standard. The upper arm also binds against the standard and increases the frictional engagement of the clip, and the latter permits the arm to be rotated on the standard, and to be raised or lowered to bring the arm at the desired elevation and in the proper position.

.On the outer portion of each arm is adjustably mounted a supporting-plate, which is adapted to receive a flower-pot or similar receptacle, and which is provided at itsperiphery with a flange to form a dish of the supporting-plate to prevent any water leaking fromaflower-pot from running off and dripping upon a floor or other supporting-surface. The supporting-plate holds such water until it evaporates, and it enables the plants and flowers to be supplied with water without removing them from the stand. The plate is provided with a centrally-arranged keeper or loop 12, which receives the supporting-arm and which permits the plate 11 to be moved inward and outward on the same.

At the upper end of the standardis located a handle 13, which permits the entire upper portion of the stand to be rotated in the bearings of the tripod, to change the position of the flowers. This will be found especially advantageous when flowers are arranged to exhibit or expose them at a window, and when it is desired to bring the flowers within reach and to carry them away from the window to permit access to the window by affording a passage-way.

It will be seen that the flower-stand is simple and inexpensive in construction, that the arms and supporting-plates are capable of adjustment to arrange a plant at the desired elevation and in the desired position, and that a number of plants may be artistically arranged and exhibited.

Changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to Without departing from. the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.

hat I claim is- A flower-stand, comprising a base or support composed of legs at, a ring connecting the upper ends of the legs, a socket located beneath the ring, and upwardly-converging braces extending from the lower ends of the legs to the socket, a rotary standard stepped in the socket and passing through the ring JOHN E. DOOLITTLE. WVitnesses:

CYNTLO S. LINCOLN, SPENCER F. LINCOLN.
