DESIGN FOR A VIOLIN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 17,888, dated November 22, 1887.
Application filed October 10, 1887. Serial N0.251,970. Term of patent? years.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, DAVID K. DARBYSHIRE, of the city and county of San Francisco, State of California, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Violins, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part thereof.
Figure 1 is a front elevation of my newlydesigned violin. Fig. 2 is a side view.
Heretofore it has been the common practice to make the body of the violin with a curved configuration or outline, although in a few instances they have been made of a rectangular shape.
The leading feature of my design consists in the shape of the body ofthe violin when viewed in front or rear elevation, which presents the general contour or configuration of an elongated isosceles plane triangle, the angles being preferably cut or beveled off.
Subordinate features of my design are the sides of the body,which have angular depressions, and the concave base, all of which I shall now describe.
A is thebody of theviolin,which, asshown in Fig. 1, has in elevation the general contour or outline of an elongated isosceles plane triangle, the several angles being cut or beveled off by straight planes at.
B is the neck of the violin, which is secured to the body at its apex.
B is the tailpiece, and O are the strings.
The sides of this triangular body are very much longer than the base, and the upper angles are beveled off by means of planes, which give the apex of the body the configuration of a smallerisoscelcs triangle the angles of which are more obtuse than those of the main body. The angles at the base of the body are beveled off by short straight planes, and the base itself, instead of being straight across, is formed of two rapidlyconverging planes, which form a concave portion at a, so as to give the proper indentation to conveniently hold the violin against the person when playing. In the sides of the body are angular depressions a which are formed with straight planes wholly, and in these depressions are the vents D.
As shown in Fig. 2, the body in thickness is tapering.
I claim- The design for a violin herein shown and described, the same consisting of the body A, having the general contour or outline of an elongated isosceles plane triangle, in the sides of which are angular depressions a". the angles of the body being beveled or cut off by straight planes and the base formed concave, substantially as herein described.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
DAVID K. DARBYSHIRE.
