SPECIFICATION forming part of Letterslatent No. 716,668, dated December 23, 1902.

Application led April ll, 1 9 0 Z.

To all whom it 11i/ftp concern;

Be it known that l, LAURA P. CHENEY, of

. New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Vaterproof Holder for Flowerproof holder for flower-pots, dre., constructed 15x in accordance with my invention; Fig. 2, a perspective view of 'the shell with its ends open and bottom partially detached and Without special external ornamentation; Fig. 3, a sectional View of the construction shown in Fig. 2 with the bottom secured in position; Fig. 4, an enlarged transverse sectional view of the ends ofthe shell; Fig. 5, a broken view showing the ends of the shell provided with buckles and straps; Fig. 6, a side view of the holder, showing the ends of the shell provided with a tongue and the opposite end with a slot for interlocking connection; Fig. 7, a perspective view of ari angular holder.

This invention relates to an improvement in holders for owerpots, rc., and particularly for Bower-pots formed from wood or clay and which aremore or less porous.

In order to hide the unsightly appearance of flower-pots or boxes of ordinary construe* tion, it is a common practice to wrap the pot or box with colored tissue-paper, ribbon, or other material; but as these pots or boxes are more or less porous` the moisture from the earth discolors the paper or ribbon upon the outside, soon giving it an unsightly appearance.

`The objectof this invention is to providea jacket or covering adapted to receive or be placed around a flower-pot, which jacket may be ornamented in any desired manner with paper, ribbon, or other material of perishable nature without danger of having such material discolored or injured from the moisture ofthe pot; and it consists in the construction, as will be more fully hereinafter described, and particularly recited in the claims.

My improved jacket or covering may assu me various shapes, according to the style of Serial. No. 102,371. (No model.)

ornamental material to be used in connection therewith. A common form, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings, consists of a frustum of a conical shell A of stifiened fabric, su'ch as paper or other suitable material, which is lined with waterproot` material B, such as rubber or thin oil-cloth. This shell is Amade in a single piece divided vertically and the ends secured in any desired manner, an 'l to the exterior of this shellornamental In: terial may be attached,` such as tis`sue-pper,.rihbon, lace, die., as shown in Fig. l. Asa convenient getherI provide one end with studs C and the opposite ends with sockets D of the usual stud and-socket fasteners, whereby theshell may he readily secured about or removed from the flower \pot. In order to reinforce the .shell and to aid in securing the ends together in the case of an irregularly-shaped pot, I preferably insert a strip il] of metal in `one edge, and, if desired, the stud member C may be secured directly to this strip before the strip connected with the shell. desirable'to provide a bottom on whichthe pot may rest, and I employ a fiat piece F, corresponding in shapeto the shape of the bottom of the shell, and connect it at opposite sides with the` bottom of the shell. As herein' shown, one side `ot' the bottom is ,provided with a hook G and the shell provided with a loop or eye II, with which the hook may engage, as clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 3. It will be understood that the face of this bottom is covered with Waterproof material O, and, if desired, the under face of the bottom may be covered with felt.

Instead of connecting the ends of the shell by ball-and-socket fasteners one end may be provided with buckles .I and the opposite ends with straps K, as shown in Fig. 5, whereby the ends of the shell may be secured together, this style being particularly applicable te shells covered with kid, leather, or similar material.

Another manner of` securing the ends of the shell is shown in Fig. 6, in which oneend is formed with a tongue L andthe opposite end with a slot M, with which the tongue may be engagedin a manner well known in the construction of paper boxes.

means for securing the ends of the shell to? It is the potto be covered or the character of the Instead of forming the shell circular, as above described, it maybe angular, as shown in Fig. and formed in severalparts and these parts connected by knots N, of ribbon, cord, or similar material.

It will be understood that in all forms of my holder the shell is lined with a waterproof material, so that the outer surface may be covered with paper, silk, or other fabric or material which is injured by moisture. I am therefore able to decorate the shell in keeping with vthe occasion on which the coverings are employed.

A holder constructed in accordance with this invention when made on a large scale is particularly adapted for use as -a wastebasket, as it permits the interior to be readily cleaned and the exterior to be ornamented in keeping with the decorations of a room.

I ain aware that ornamental coverings for f1owerpots, die., formed in sections of cardboard are old. I am also aware that holders of metal, wood, and glass have been provided to cover and protect the exterior' surface of lower-pots and also that ilowewpots have been formed from waterproof paper, and therefore do not wish to be understood as claiming, broadly, such as my invention.

IIaving fully described my' invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A waterproof holder for newer-pots, consisting of a shell formed from flexible non metallic material, having its ends detachably secured together, an independently-formed lining of waterproof material connected with said shell, a lbottom also formed ot non-metallic material and having an independentlyformed piece of waterproof material connected therewith, said bottom detachably connected with the shell, substantially as described.

2.' A waterproof holder for flower-pots, die. consisting of a divided shell lined with water proof material, one end of the shell being re inforced by a metal strip, and the ends pro vided with stnd-and-socket fasteners, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this speciiication in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

LAURA P. CHENEY.
