IMPRWOVE'MENT IN BAG-HOLDERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 130,051, dated July 3Q, 1872.
To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, JOSEPH H. HOLLIDGE,
of Washington, in the county of Washington and in the District of Columbia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag-Holders; and do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing and to the letters of reference marked thereon making a part of this specification.
The nature of my invention consists in the construction and arrangement of a bag-holder, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
In order to enable others skilled in the art to which myinvention appertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describe its construction and operation, referring to the annexed drawing, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my bag holder, showing the bag in position. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the upper end of the holder'without the bag, and Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the same.
My bag-holder is composed of an upper rim, A, a lower rim, B, and bars or legs 0 0, connectin g the same together.
Heretofore bag-holders have generally been provided with hooks, teeth, or other similar devices, to hold the bag, which always, sooner or later, will tear or otherwise injure the bag.
Where no hooks or teeth have been used there have been other devices to adjust which occupy so much time that there is nothing gained in using the same, the object of a bag-holder being to save both time and labor in filling.
My device is very simple and cheap, does not tear or in any way injure the bag, and, by
' the use of the same, bags maybe filled very rapidly and with perfect ease.
The upper rim A is made of plain hoop or band iron, in oval form and flaring, as shown inFig. 3-that is, the circumference of the rim at the upper edge is larger than at the lower edge. This rim is then, by legs or bars,
(3 0., connected with a' circular rim, B, which forms the foot of my bag-holder.
Although I prefer to use the device shown for supporting the upper rim A, still I do not desire to confine myself exclusively to the same, as the essence of my invention lies in the plain flaring rim A, having no hooks, teeth, or other similar devices for holding the bag. The bag is passed through the rim A, and the mouth of the same is turned outward over and around said rim, which, being flaring, holds the bag sufiiciently firm, and prevents it from slipping 0d. The object of making this rim of oval form is merely to facilitate the filling of the bag and to prevent the. grain, in being poured into the bag, from falling out at the sides.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
In a bag-holder, the flaring rim A, made of for the
