F. THIEL LAMP SHADIE Filed March 19 1925 IN VEIV TOR W I mm? 5r Patented Nov. 24, 1925.



Application filed March 19, 1925.

1 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FERDINAND THIEL, a citizen of Germany, and resident of the city of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Lamp Shades, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to improvements in lamp-shades, and more particularly to a method of ornamenting the outer surfaces thereof.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a simple and etiicient method of ornamenting lamp-shades by producing part of the design raised or in relief, the relief portions of the design being in the form of solid objects which are applied to the body of the lamp-shade, and thereafter applying pigment ornamentation to the lamp-shade so that the applied solid objects have the appearance of being made integral with the body of the lamp-shade.

The several steps of the method are illustrt l th com) 11 in drawin s in as, in ea-c lay g Figure 1 is an elevation of the body of a lamp-shade, havin solid objects, to produce part of the design, applied thereto; Fig. 2 is a section taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 3 is an elevation of the lampshade, the design being completed by the a pplication of coloring material.

In producing the lamp-shade, first, a lampshade body 10 formed. This body may be of any suitable configuration and may be made of any suitable material, such as parchment or the like. The edges of this body are provided with a binding 11 of any suitable type, for the well known purpose. To the exterior surface of the body are secured in any suitable manner solid objects 12, for instance by clips 13. These bodies are, in the case illustrated, in the form of flowers and may be made of any suitable material, for instance of papier mach. After these solid bodies have been Serial No. 16,686.

secured in place, the outlines of the design to be produced are drawn by pencil or other wise on the body of the lamp-shade, and

thereafter coloring material is applied to the design as a whole, that is to say not only to that portion of the design which has been drawn supplemental to the applied objects but also to the latter. That part of the design which is supplemental to the applied objects is in the case illustrated in the form of foliage, denoted by the numeral let. The back ground of the design is also'produced by the application of coloring material to the lamp-shade, as shown at 15. Before the coloring material dries, a coating of small glass beads 16 is applied to the entire outer surface of the lamp-shade, the said glass beads being held in position thereon by the coloring material. In Fig. 3 of the drawings only a portion of the lamp-shade is provided with glass beads, in order to more clearly show the design. It is to be noted, however, that these glass beads are transparent, so that the design on the lampshade is clearly visible after they have been applied thereto.

When the coloring material and the glass beads have been applied to the lamp-shade, the solid objects 12 have the appearance of being made integral with the body of the lamp-shade.

\Vhat I claim is:-

The method of ornanienting a. lamp-shade which consists in, first, fixing solid objects to the surface to be orin-nneutcd, second, drawing a design on the surface con'iplelnenting the design obtained by fixing said solid objects thereto, third, applying coloring mate rial to the entire surface to be ornamented, and fourth, applying a coating of transparent beads to the entire surface to he ornamented.

Signed at New York, in the county of New York, and State of New York, this 2nd day of March, A. D. 1925.
