DESIGN FOR SPOON AND FORK.
SPECIFICATION 'forming part of Design No. 11,956, dated August 24, 1880. Application filed Juno 1!), 1880. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LEWIS F. GRISWOLD, a citizen of the United States, residing'at Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Spoons and Forks; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description ot'the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form apart of this specification.
In said drawings, Figure 1 represents a front view of a spoon exhibiting my design, and Fi 2 represents a rear view thereof.
The leading feature of my design consists in forming upon the front of the spoon-handle a broad band obliquely crossing the same, and having upon it a series of twigs of cypress.
Other prominent features of my design consist in giving to this band a series of transverse ribs or ridges, and in providing obliquely above said band a triangular space inclosing the figure of a bird.
A designates the bowl of the spoon, B its shank, and C its ornamented handle. The sides 0 c of this handle are made quite straight, with a gentle taper. The rear end, C, of said handle is bent upward and provided with a point, 0. At the junction of said shank and said handle there is an elliptical transverse swell, C which is ornamented with curved lines both on front and back. Beyond this curve on the front of the handle are a series 5 of scroll-marks and arrow-points. Beyond these a broad band, D, crosses the front of said handle obliquely. This band is crossed by ridges or striations set close together to form a rough background, on which are tlowering stems or branches (1, provided with leaves as well as blossoms and arranged side by side. Beyond this band, in a smooth triangular space toward the rear of the spoon, is a figure of a bird descending. Beyond this is a row of straight short longitudinal lines, and beyond the latter are two rows, E E, of alternately-arranged sprigs and leaves or blossoms separated by an undulating line.
The back of the spoon has a similar series of short straight lines and sprigs directly opposite to those on the front of the spoon. A fork-handle may be similarly decorated.
The leaves and sprigs are preterabl y shaped to represent those of the cypress-tree.
Manyof the minor features of the ornamentation above described may be greatly changed or omitted without departing from what is essential to my design.
What I claim is- The design for the front or a fork or spoon handle, consisting of the oblique band D, with twigs marked thereon, the triangular space with a bird in it above said band, and the rows of alternatelyarranged flowers orleaves above said triangular space, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
LEWIS F. GRISWOLD.
