Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed April 9, 1919. SeriabNo. 288,728.
To all whomit may 00mm:
Be it known that I, PHILIP SIEWENIE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Calendar Hangers and the like, of whichthe following is a description.
My invention belongs to that general class of devices adapted to be supported upon the wall, and in turn to support a sheet or plate, or aseries of the same, for convenient reference or for ornament; It has for its object the production of such a device in a simple and economical manner, and with a very artistic effect. To this end it consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combination of parts herein shown and described, and more particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, wherein like reference characters indicate like or corresponding parts,
Figure l is front elevation of my improved device, showing a calendar supported thereby;
Fig. 2 is a rear View of the central portion of the device, showing the manner of construction;
Fig. 3 is a rear view of the engaging button; I
Fig. 4 is a side View of the same,
Fig. 5 is a perspective View of a metal loop employed in my improvement; and
Fig. 6 is a slightly modified form of the same.
In the drawings, 1 represents a calendar, which may consist of a single sheet or a plurality of sheets. 2 comprises a hanger pro vided with an eye 3 and extending arms 4, provided at the extremities with bent up portions 5 or equivalent means to support a calendar or the like. 6 in the form shown is a semi-spherical button provided with a plurality of extending prongs 7 of the desired number. In the form shown, to accommodate the cord member, the button is provided with four such prongs. 8' is a cord I or equivalent member artistically looped as indicated, having the bight of the several loops positioned within the button and arranged within the prongs 7, so as to be reliably secured thereby as indicated. When the cord is properly arranged as desired, the eye 3, as clearly shown in Fig. 2,
is positioned also within the fprongs 7, resting upon the several loops 0 the cord, and
confining the same between the eye and the front of the-button 6; The several prongs -'T are then bent downward upon the eye,
preferably positively engaging the loops of the cord as shown, firmly retaining the several parts in position. In the preferred arrangement, the cord is arranged in three external loops as 9, with the extending ends provided with tassels 10 or other finish. The upper loop 9 in the form shown may,
other part arranged on thewall to carry the calendar. In the form shown in Fig.6, the arms 44 arebent outward in alinement with each other instead of in the V-shape shown in Figs. 1 and 5. however, is the same.
With my improved device, the several sheets are each provided with eyes 11 to engage the hooks 5, and may be readily disflower, or any other pleasing form may be employed.
Having thus described my invention, it is obvious that various immaterial modifica tions may be made in the same without departing from the spirit of my invention; hence I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself to the exact form, construction, arrangement and combination of parts herein shown and described, or uses mentioned.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A hanger comprising a member provided with an eye having arms extending therefrom, the ends of said arms being extended to form hooks, a button detachably connected to the eye, and a cord secured between the eye and button.
2. A hanger comprising a member provided with an eye having arms extending therefrom, the ends of said arms being extended to form hooks, a button detachably connected to the eye, and a cord folded to if desired, be employed to engage a pin or The operation,
form it plurulity'ofloops, the inner ends of said loops being secured between the eye and button.
3. A hanger comprising 'a mei'nber provided with an eye and having arms extending therefrom, the ends of said arnisbeing extended to form hooks, a button, prongs formed on the button and adapted to engage the eye and a cord secured between the eye and button.
I 4. A hanger comprising a member proided with an eye and having arms extended therefrom, the ends of said arms being extended to form hooks, a button having prongs bent to engage the eye, and a cord folded to form a plurality of loops, the
ends of loops being engaged between therefrom, the ends of the arms being extended to form hooks, a button, a cord 'folded to form loops, and means on the but ton extending through the loops and engaging the eye for securing the cord to said eye.
In testimony, whereof I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of twoisubscribing witnesses. H H r PHILIP SIEWENIE.
