L Allorney Patented June 7, 1932 PATENT OFFICE FRED W. BUECKER, JR., F SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS BRACKET Application filed October 21, 1930. Serial No. 490,278.

The present invention relates to a bracket and has for its prime object to provide means for supporting a sink so as to maintain the rising back portion thereof in close snug relation to the wall.

Another very important object of the invention resides in the provision of a bracket of this nature which is exceedingly simple in its construction, inexpensive to manufacture,

easy to install, thoroughly eficient and reliaable in use and otherwise well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.

With the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be here inafter more fully described and claimed.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a sink sup ported by my bracket,

Figure 2 is a detail rear elevation of one of the brackets,

Figure 3 is a top plan view thereof,

Figure at is an end elevation thereof, and

Figure 5 is an enlarged detail section taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Figure 1.

Referring to the drawings in detail it will be seen that the numeral 5 denotes a board on the wall structure 6. There are two of my brackets supporting the sink S in the pres ent illustration of the invention but the number of these brackets is not considered to be of the essence of the invention.

Each bracket comprises a rectangular body plate 7 and extends downbetween the board 5 and the wall 6. At the top of the plate 7 is an outwardly extending flange perpendicular to the plate 7 This flange is denoted by the numeral 9 and has a tongue portion 10 struck therefrom to leave a slot 11. This tongue portion 10 is curved upwardly and receives the bead 12 of the rising back 14: of the sink S. In this way it will be seen that the sink may be mounted so as to prevent the same from sagging and to maintain the rising back portion thereof firmly against the Wall as is desired.

It is thought that the construction, op-

eration, utility and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilled in this art without a more detailed description thereof.

The present embodiment of the invention has been described in considerable detail merely for the purposes of exemplification slnce in actual practice it attains the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention and the above description.

It will be apparent that changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacrificing any of its advantages.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new is:

A device for holding the vertical part of a sink to a wall comprising a block fastened to the wall within the space formed by said vertical portion, a plate located between the block and said wall, and having a flange at its upper end extending at right angles outwardly from the plate and resting on the top of the block, said flange being cut to form a tongue, the tongue being bent upwardly in a curve to engage the curved bead of the top of the vertical portion of a sink.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
