Applicationdfiled March 5, 1927. Serial No. 173,105.

My 'rresent lll'iGliltlOD P83111115} to lamps peter-ably of the electrical type and stand th i for and it contemplates the provision of a simple and irexpensivc construction 5 through the medium of which the lamp may be raised or lowered to various heights and is adapted to be positioned at various angles. Other objects and advantageous features of the invention will be fully understood from the following description and claims when the same are read in connection with the drawings accompanyingand forming part of this specification, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of my novel lamp and stand therefor and showing the preferred construction'of base or supporting element. 7

Figure 2 is an end elevation of the stand and showing the same as it appears when 1 looking in the direction of the arrows in Figure l. p r t Figure 3 is a vertical section taken in the plane indicated by the lines 33 of Figure 2. Figure 4.- is a sectional view taken in the i plane indicated by the lines H of Figure 3. v

Figure is a sectional view taken in the Figure 12 is a plan view partially in horizontal section showing a mo ified term of base. 1

Figure 13 is a sectional view of Figure 12 taken in the plane indicated by the lines 13-13 of said Figure.

Figure 141 a view in section showing the manner of disengaging the standard from the modified construction or base.

Similar numerals of reference designate corrcsl'ionding parts in all the views of the drawings and reference will be had particularly in the first instance to Figures 1 to 11 inclusive of said drawings.

' no rel device comprises an upstanding or arm 1 at its upper end it is provided 7 with the knit) 26 that in turn engages the right angle arm 2 that is adapted to be sou ed in the knob 26 and is arrai'igred to enter a hollow tubular portion 2' of a lamp shade 3. The lamp shade 3 may be of any C011- struction compatible with the invention and formed on and comprising an integral portron thereof 1s a socket 3. Themterior surface'of the shade 3 is so constructed that a. lamp 4 may be secured therein and the usual wiring 18 extends from the socket as illustrated. tubular portion thereof is adapted'to be turned at various angles with respect to the arm 2 or if desired entirely removed from said arm. However, when a person has determined the angle at which the shade is to be positioned with respect to the arm 2 manipulation of the thumb screw. 17 will hold the lamp in the predetermined position. At the lower end the arm 1 is provided with the reduced portion 5 for an important purpose hereinafter set forth. I

Adapted to rest'adjacent thearm 1' is a standard 9 that has an integral angular base portion 13 as clearly shown in Figure 10. It will be seen that'the standard and its base comprise a single piece of material that is looped at both of its ends. Adapted to engage the larger portion of the arm .1

is a member 7 that is provided with a shank 7 and the said member 7 is further provided with an aperture through which the arm 1 passes and the said arm retained with re spect to the member 7 by means of a'thumb screw 8. The threaded shank of the member 7 enters an aperture in a slidable collar that is adapted tostraddle the standard 9 and is adjustable with respect to the standard by means of the thumb screw 11.

Arranged to straddle the standard 9 immediately below the collar 10 is a second slidable collar 14 that normally rests in the position shown in Figure 1 though it may be provided with a thumb screw for positioning it withjrespect to the standard. This slidable collar {18/ provided with an integral knob 6 having an aperture the bore of which is slightly smaller than the bore of the member 7 and this provision is made in order to adapt the same to receive the reduced portion 5 of the arm 1. festly, if desired the arm 1 may be thrown to the position shown in Figure 2 and in dotted lines and in such instance the reduced portion 5 will not be engaged by the knob 6.

In the preferred construction of my de- The shade 3 because of the g Manivice I desire to employ the base or support shown in Figure 11 and comprising the fiat tubular portion 12 having the bent or turned down element 20. This support is fastened to a table 19 or other base through the medium of the screws or other fastening means 16 and it will be seen that the bent portion 20 thereof is not as wide as the width of the portion 12. The said support is adapted toreceive the portion 13 of the standard 9 and in order to assemble the device the standard is held at the angle indicated and shown in Figure 9. \Vhen properly positioned the portion 13 will ride into the tubular flat portion 12 of the base wherebythe standard is held in rigid but removable manner with respect to the base.

In the practical use of the device described it will be manifest that the standard may be moved backwardly and forwardly with respect to the base 12 when desired and that the arm 1 may not onlybe thrown at various angles with respect to the standard but in addition at various heights. Likewise the lamp shade and of necessity the lamp may be thrown in an are at various angles with respect to the arm 2.

Particular reference will now be had to the modified construction of the device which is clearly indicated in Figures 12 to 14 inclusive. The modified construction is that of the base which may be used in lieu of the base 12 and comprises the base portion 12" having the fastening receiving apertures 30 through the medium of which the base may be variously moved with respect to a table or other support. Formed on the base is a tubular collar 22 that may be closed or open in the center thereof as shown in dotted lines at 23 though if desired the said tubular portion may be formed as is the tubular portion 12 of the preferred base. The said base 12- may be secured to a table or support by means of the fastening devices 16 and in addition to the tubular portion 22 I provide a spring clip or confiningmember 21 that is provided with the element 24 as illustrated. It willv be seen that in securing the standard in this base that it is merely necessary to push the portion 13 of the standard under the spring member 21 at the angle shown in Figure 14 and pull the standard back to its limit of motion and then push the standard forward into the tubular portion to its limit of movement when it will rest in the position shown in Figure 13 to retain same in rigid manner with respect to the base.

It will be gathered from the foregoing that both the preferred and the modified construction of the support will act as a rigid and removable means for securing the standard with respect to a table or the like and that the assembling as well as the disassembling of the elements may be avconu plished with but a small amount: of effort on the part of the operator. I do not wish to confine myself to the use of my novel stand as a lamp holding device per so, as it may be employed in connection with a mir ror, receptacle and the like in lieu of a lamp and discretionary by those practicing my invention.

Whatl claim is:

1. A combined lamp and bracket. comprising a supporting clement secured to a base and formed of a single piece of material bent upon itself whereby a clip is produced, a raised portion formed in the supporting element, an upstanding member of L shaped form in cross section adapted to be engaged by the supportin element, members secured on the upstanding menu her and provided with means for adjustment with respect to the upstanding memher, an arm adapted to be secured to the adjustable members and an arm extending from said first arm and adapted to engage the shade of a lamp and means for position ing the shade at various angles on the second arm.

2. A device for the purpose set forth comprising a support, means for securing the support to a base, a member of L shaped form in cross section adapted to engage the support whereby an upstanding portion is produced with res )ect to the base, means for securing the mem Jer in the support, adjustable mcmbers secured to the upstanding portion of the L shaped member, an arm adapted to be positioned upwardly and downwardly with respect to the upstanding portion and to be thrown at various angles with respect to the member and a second arm adapted to en age a lamp socket.

In testimony whereof fhave hereunto set my hand.
