THEODOEEM. ANDERSON AND ROBERTV J. ANDERSON, OE NEW wI-IATOOM,

` i A i f WASHINGTON.

SPCIFICATIO forming part of Letters :atent No.` 560,884, dated May 26, 1896. Application filed July 25,1893. Renewed November 30. 1895. sain No. 570,708. un, model.)

ington, have invented anew and useful Shelf- Bracket, of which the following is a specification; i

Our invention relatesto a bracket adapted 1o for the support of shelves and designed in addition thereto to perform the function of a book-rest,clothes-hook,curtain-pole, or towelroller fixture; and it has for its object to provide a simple, inexpensive, and efficient de- 15 vice adapted to be secured to awall, bracketstrip, or other vertical supporting surface without the use of supplemental fastening devices, and adapted, furthermore, for the removable attachment of a shelf or ledge.

2o Further objects and advantages of this invention will appear in the following description, and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

z 5 In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a bracket embodying our invention arranged in duplicate to support a shelf and a subjacent towel-rollert Fig. 2 is a detail view, partly in section, of the bracket.

3o Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in both ii gures of the drawings. i

Theimproved bracket is formed from a single piece of wire, and comprises the straight W 3 5 rear side l, the horizontal arm 2, and the `inclined connecting-brace 3. The lower end of the inclined brace 3 meets the rear side l. at a point about one-thirdof the length of said rear side from its lower end, from which point 4o of meeting the brace and the rear side lie parallel and in Contact to form a loop et, the sides of which are soldered or otherwise iirmly secured together. The inclined brace meets the horizontal arm at a pointl 5 in rear of the front 4 5 end of the arm and continues parallel with the arm to its extremity to form the parallel-sided loop 6, the sides of which are secured together, as described above with reference to the loop 4. The terminal of this loop is bent upwardly 5o at a right angle to the arm 2 to form a vertical stop or projection 7. The rear end of the horizontal arm meets the rear side of the bracket below its upper extremity and is. bent .upwardl y, as shown at 8, to lie parallel with said rear side, such vertical portion 8 being 55 secured to the rearside in the manner hereinbefore described. The rearside ofthe bracketterminates in aneye 9, slightly above the upper Aend of the vertical portion S of the arm l, and through this eye extends horizon- 6o tally athreaded spur l0, which projects in front of the eye and is connected to the forwardly-bent upper extremity of the vertical portion 8, such forwardly-extending portions of the spur and vertical arm lying parallel 65 i and in contact to form the looped stud l1, the

sides of which are soldered together. The stud l1 is parallel with the arm 2 and is in alinement with the rearward-extending portion of the threaded spur, whereby in fixing 7o `the bracket to the wall or a bracket-strip this forward extension or stud may receive the impact of a driving implement when it is necessary to start the spur by means of a hammer.

Y In l we have shown our improved 75 bracket in duplicate and arranged to support a shelf or ledge l2. This shelf is inserted at its rear edge between the horizontal arms and the overhanging or forwardly-projeeting studs ll and is provided in its under side 8o with sockets 13 to receive the vertical terminals of the arms. In this way the shelf is securely fastened to the brackets and is held by the means provided against accidental displacement, but maybe removed by elevating 8 5 the front edge of the shelf and drawing the latter forwardly to disengage its rear edge.

In Fig. 1 we have shown, furthermore, means for supporting and revolubly mounty ing a towel-roller 14, such means consisting 9o in providing the inclined braces at intermediate points with integra-l coils l5, the roller being headed, as shown at 1G, to prevent accidental displacement.-

From the above description it will be un- 95 derstood that our improved bracket is simple in construction, is formed from a single blank of wire, and that the contacting parts are permanently united by solder or other equivalent means to provide a rigid structure. roo

Various changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the prin* ciple or sacriiicin g any of the advantages of this invention.

Among the changes of which this bracket is susceptible we have shown one in Fig. 2 in which the coil l5, which is formed integral with and at an intermediate point of the inclined brace 3, is turned inward and impin ges at its sides against the portions l and 2 of the bracket, thus forming a strengthening eye or coil, which at the same time gives a certain resiliency to the free end of the supporting-arm, as does the outwardly-turned coil which is shown in Fig. l.

Having described our invention, what we claim isl. As a new article of manufacture, a bracket formed from a single blank of wire and comprising a vertical rear side, a horizontal arm meeting the rear side at a point below its upper extremity and terminating in a vertical projection, an inclined brace connecting the rear side and said arm, a securing-spur extending rearward from the upper extremity of the rear side, and a forwardly-extending stud disposed at the upper end of the rear side integral with the bracket and the securing-spur and arranged parallel with and above the horizontal arm, substantially as specified.

2. As a new article of manufacture, a bracket formed from a single blank of wire and comprising the rear side l, a horizontal arm 2 meeting the rear side at a point below its upper extremity and provided with a vertical extension which is parallel with and is secured firmly to the rear side, an eye arranged at the upper terminal of the rear side, a securing-sp ur arranged in rear of and passing through said eye, a horizontally-disposed looped stud connecting the spur and the vertical extension of thehorizontal arm and having its sides secured in contact, and an inclined brace connecting the rear side and the horizontal arm and lying parallel and in contact with such parts to form loops the sides of which are connected, the extremity of the loop which is formed between the brace and the horizontal arm bein g turned up to form a vertical projection, substantially as speciiied.

In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto afiixed our signatures in the presence of two witnesses.
