lVlLLlAM PATRICK VELOH, OF GRAND FORKS, NORTH DAKOTA.

SHOE-HOLDER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 573,498, dated December 22, 1896.

Application filed January 25, 1896. Serial No. 576,873. (No model.)

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM PATRICK lVELCH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Grand Forks, in the county of Grand Forks and State of North Dakota, have invented a new and useful Shoe-Holder, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to means for supporting boots and shoes during the polishing, cleaning, or oiling thereof.

The primary object of the improvement is to provide a holder for receiving and supporting different-sized shoes, and which will combine simplicity and economy of construction, and which will be effective for the purposes designed, holding the shoe in such condition that the upper can be polished the same and with as much ease as when the shoe is worn.

For a full understanding of the merits and advantages of the invention reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings and the following description.

The improvement is susceptible of various changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction without departing from the principle or sacricing any of the advantages thereof, and a full disclosure of the invention and adaptation thereof is shown in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a perspective view of a shoe holder or support constructed in accordance with the spirit of this invention. Fig. 2 is a sectional detail showing the holder or support contracted or reduced in length.

Corresponding and like parts will be referred to in the following description and designated in the iigures of the drawings by similar reference-characters.

The holder or support for the -shoe comprises two parts l and 2, telescopically constructed, so that its length can be varied to suit different-sized shoes, the part l approximating the form of the heel portion of the shoe and the part 2 nearly resembling the front or toe portion thereof. The heel-section l is hollow and has aforwardly-extending plate 3, and the sides have their front edges curving forwardly, so as to secure a firm support for the said plate 3. rlhe toe-section 2 is slidably supported upon the plate 3, and is provided at its rear end with a bail 4, loosely or pivotally connected to eyes at the rear end of the said toe-section. A lever 5, mounted upon a cross-rod 6 at the upper forward end of the heel-section, vis connected at its lower end to the bail 4, and is adapted to be operated to project or withdraw the toe-section accordingly as it is required to lengthen or shorten the support to adapt it to the size of the shoe placed thereon. A pawl 7 is pivotally connected at its upper end to the lever 5, and its lower end is constructedA to engage with the flutes or corrugations of a crimped plate 8, affixed to the top side of the heel-section l, so as to hold the toe-section in the required projected position.

A curved arm or bracket 9 is secured to the heel-section l, and its rear or free end is adapted to be engaged with a clip or keeper 10, secured in any desired manner to a wall or suitable support ll. When the device is not in use, the arm or bracket can be detached from the clip or keeper and laid aside, and when required for use the said bracket can be quickly slipped into the keeper l0, and the shoe to be cleaned, oiled, or polished can be fitted to the support or holder, the toesection being projected so as to distend the shoe by a proper manipulation of the lever 5.

Byhaving the heel-section hollow and open at its front end the toe-section can telescope therewith and the holder can be reduced to the smallest size possible, and a construction is had which will admit of the device being constructed almost entirely of sheet metal, thereby attaining simplicity and economy of construction and the provision of a strong and durable means for attaining the requisite end.

Having thus described the invent-ion, what is claimed as new isl. In a shoe-support, the combination of a hollow heel-section having a forwardly-extending plate, a toe-section slidably mounted upon the said plate, a bail having pivotal connection with the toe-section, and a lever fulcrumed upon the heel-section and having connection with the said bail and adapted to move the toe-section upon its supportingplate, substantially in the manner and for the purpose set forth.

2. ln combination, a hollow heel-section IOC having a forwardly-extending plate, a toeseetion slidably mounted upon the said plate, a bail pivotally connected with the toe-section, a lever fulorumed upon the heel-section and having connection with the said bail, a plate applied to the heel-section and having criinps or proj eoting portions, and a pawl carried by the said lever and adapted to engage with the projecting portions of the said plate to hold the toe-section in a projected position, lo substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the preseneeof two Witnesses.

WILLIAM PATRICK WELCH.
