The invention will be clearly understood by reference to the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, forming part hereof, and in which:

Figure 1 is a View of the receptacle on the column of a porch, illustrating the'invention in horizontal and vertical positions.

Figure 2 is a perspective View of the receptacle removed from its support.

Figure 3 is a cross-sectional view of the receptacle along the line 3-3 of Figure 2, and

Figure 4 is a view of one end of the paper holder. l

The receptacle consists of a sheet of metal 1 bent upon itself and the edges folded together at '3 to form a hollow, cylindrical body. The ends of the holder are bent outward and over upon the holder or receptacle and form a band 4 which provides a firm edge and strengthens the ends.

The paper holder is also provided with a strip of metal 5, which partially encircles the body 1 and is extended outwardly as shown in Figure 3, forming lateral wings Serial No. 58,500.

It should be understood that the receptacle is not limited to the specific shape or form, but may be altered in keeping with the following claim.

' A receptacle formed from a sheet of metal bent into cylindrical form with the edges folded together providing a seam extending interiorlyof the receptacle, a supporting strip having an arcuate portion snugly engaging the receptacle and extending across said seam, and rivets mounted in the said arcuate portion and said receptacle on opposite sides of said seam for permanently connecting the strip to the receptacle and thereby reenforce said seam.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
