y 1932- I N. c. GATES 1,856,847 I ARTICLE HOLDER Filed Dec. 6, 1930 Patented May 3, 1932 NINA C. GATES, OF OLD SAYBROOK, CONNECTICUT ARTICLE HOLDER Application filed December 6, 1930. Serial No. 500,445.

This invention relates to an improvement in article-holders, the object being to provide a holder adapted to be applied to the edge of .a table for the reception of gloves, bags, or other articles of ladies use, and the invention consists in the construction as hereinafter described and particularly recited in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings: Fig. l is a side view of an article-holder 1o constructed in accordance with my invention;

Fig. 2 is a front view of the same; Fig. 3 is a top view of the same; gig. 4 is a perspective view of the same; an 5 Fig. 5 is a perspective view showing the device applied to the edge of a table with articles in position.

The holder is formed from two strips of sheet metal, one strip forming a table-plate 10 with a slightly upwardlyscurved lip 11.

The strip is bent at right angles to form a. supporting-arm 12, the lower end 13 of the plate being bent upward into U-shape to form an open pocket.

Secured to the rear face of the arm 12 is a spring clamping-member H-preferably provided at its inner end with a cushion-pad 15. This clamping-member may be secured to the arm 12 by electric welding or otherwise.

This device is adapted to be secured to the edge of a table 16, the plate resting upon the top and the clamping-member extending beneath the table so as to hold the device in position.

A bag may be suspended in the pocket and the pocket provides space for gloves, handkerchief and other articles.

The table-plate may bear the monogram of the owner, name of the hotel or restaurant,

or be ornamental as desired, and the device may be finished in any desired manner, such as plating, enameling or otherwise.

This device maybe readily applied or removed from a table and provides for the support of articles in a convenient position for the owner so as to avoid the necessity of placing such articles on the table or attempting to hold them.

I claim:

strip of flat sheet-metal bent to form a hori- I zontal supporting-arm to rest fiatwise upon the table-top near the edge thereof, a vertical suspension-arm extending downwardly at a right angle from the outer end of the said supporting-arm, and an upwardly-turned supporting-loop forming an extension of the said suspension-arm, the said holder also comprising a doubly-curved spring-retaining member, one end of which is rigidly secured to the rear face of the said suspension-arm and extending thence downwardly in a curve and then upwardly in a reverse curveunder the said horizontal arm with which it yield ingly coacts to grip the edge of the table-top. In testimony whereof, I have signed this specification.
