M 17, 1923. fififilwfi H. S. HOLYWELL TELEPHONE PENCIL HOLDER Filed Nov. 14, 1922 Patented July 17, 1923.




Application filed November 14, 1922.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HAROLD S. HOLYWELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Number 615 Ocean Avenue, in the borough of Brooklyn, city and State of New York,

have invented a new and useful Improvement in Telephone Pencil Holders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention is a pencil holder designed to be attached to telephone instruments, upon which hangs a chain attached to the pencil, and a receptacle for holding the pencil when not in use.

The object of the invention is to provide means for having at all times a pencil handy for use attached to telephone instruments.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device, Fig- 2 ure 2 is a cross section thereof.

Referring specifically to the drawings, the pencil holder consists of a circular band 1, opened at the end 2, and secured in place by a screw 3, at the end of which hangs a Serial No. 600,973.

cone-shaped pocket 4, into which the pencil 5, is placed when not in use, which pencil is attached to a chain 6, hanging from the end of the circular band.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A pencil holder of the kind stated, comprising a circular band to place around the telephone instrument or fixture, opened at the end, screwed together to hold the circular band around the telephone instrument, at the end of which hangs a coneshaped pocket, into which is placed the point of the pencil when not in use, and which pencil is attached to the end of the 4 circular band by a chain.

In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribin witnesses.
