1,068,391, Specification of Letters Patent.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HUGO JENSEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Brackets, of which the following is a specification.

The essential object of this invention is to provide a bracket to be applied to a fence or the like, which bracket is intended to support a flower box or similar device from the fence.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a fence to which the bracket is applied; and Fig. 2 is an end view showing the top rail of the fence in section, and the bracket and the palings of the fence in ele vation.

The palings 1 and top rail 2 are of any suitable construction. The bracket is formed of a band of metal 01' other similar material and is adapted to be hooked upon or secured to the fence so as to be retained thereupon without the use of nails or screws. One arm 3 of the bracket is L-shaped, the long arm of the L being substantially horizontal when the bracket is applied to the fence, and the shorter arm being substantially vertical. The shorter arm is provided with an inwardly-projecting toe 4, which is adapted to bear against one of the palings 1. The arm 5 is also L-shaped, one-part of said arm 5 being substantially horizontal and adapted to rest upon the top of the rail 2, the other section being substantially vertical and engaging the rail 2 upon the side opposite to that engaged by the member 3. At

its lower extremity, the arm 5 is bent into a knuckle 6, which engages the paling 1 at approximately the same height as the toe 4. A stud 7 is countersunk at 8, in the horizontal section of member 5 and projects upwardly through the slot 9 in horizontal section of member 3. The stud 7 is screwthreaded, and the nut 10 is adapted to be placed thereupon, which nut when tightened binds the members 5 and 3 firmly together. The flower box or other article to be supported is inserted in the space 11 which is formed by the arms 3, 5, 12, and 13.

Obviously, the bracket may be accommodated to a fence or top rail of any size whatsoever and may be made so as to support a flower box or similar article of any desired size.

I claim as my invention:

A bracket comprising a pair of horizontal arms adapted to engage each other, means to secure said arms together in superposed relation, a vertical arm depending from each of said horizontal arms, means upon each of said vertical arms and projecting therefrom, said projecting means extending to ward each other, one of said vertical arms and the member projecting therefrom comprising a hooklike end, and supporting arms, all of said arms being integrally united together.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto affixed my name in the presence of two witnesses.

HUGO JENSEN. Witnesses:
