10V Claims.

This invention relates to a composite Wall covering producing raised bead-like metal effects.

An object of this invention is toprovide a conlposite Wall covering having ornamental figures thereon Which are made by closely spaced points in relief'- pressed out on the Ventire surface of the ornamental figures and out of the normal plane of the said wall covering.

Another object of this invention is to provide a composite Wall Acovering comprising a sheet of paper having a layer of metal foil on one of its faces and having simulations of linear outlines of ornamental figures pressed out on the paper face and extending into the metal foil face and lying in relief on the metal face; and by covering the ornamental areas With clear lacquer and the spaces around the simulated outlines in relief With a layer of coloring matter contrasting with the color of the metal` foil and producing at least a two-tone color effect..

In my prior patent application, Serial No. 165,440, have disclosed a composite Wall covering simulating inlaid metal effects which were made by scoring the outlines of the ornamental 25 gures in relief. The scored outlines of the figures Were very distinct and outstanding. In

the present disclosure I` produce ornamentalV figures which scintillate all ove-r the area of the figures by means of raised bead-like metal effects. I subdue the luster of the metallic figured portions by applying thereto a layer of colored and substantially transparent lacquer.

I apply a layer of coloring matter all around the ornamental figures,v the coloring matter being of a different co-lor than the lacquered metal. I have thus produced a practical Wall covering which is ornamented with esthetic figures in at least two-tone color effect and which may be positively and permanently attached to a Wall by applying paste all over the normally concealed paper surface of the Wall covering so that the entire sheet of wall covering including the oma-v mental gured areas is positively attached to the Wall.

With the above and other objects in View, the invention will be hereinafter more particularly described, and the combination and arrangement of parts will be shown in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims which form part of this specification. Reference will now be had tothe drawings, wherein like numerals of re-ference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, in which: 1

Figure 10 is a cross-sectional view, the section being taken as online Ill-lll in Figure 9.

Figure 11 is a fragmentary plan View of a modied wall covering. having a plain metallic surface on the entire area around. the ornamental figures, the figured areas being ornamented with colored lacquer through which the metal Shines faintly.

Figure 12 is a cross-sectional View', the section being taken ason line |2-2` in Figure 11'.

In the illustrated embodiment of the invention shown in Figures 1 and 2i the numeral I0 indicates a composite wallcovering producing raised bead-like metal effects and adapted to be pasted to a wall and comprising a sheet of flexible paper ll'having an integral layerof metal foil I2 on one of its faces.

As shown in Figures 1 2, the compositeY Wall covering I9 has a point-by-point bead-like broken outline I3 made by pointed impressions l5 forming an ornamental metallic figure I4.

VVThe point-by-point Voutlinegof vthe ornamental figure i4 has been impressed on the paperV face and extends into the metal foil face and lies i relief on the metal face. Y 1

The interior of the ornamental figure I4 has been fabricated with closely spaced pointed beadlike impressions I6 in relief leaving a central portion plain, as shown by the numeral I 2. The space around the figure or around the broken outline in relief has been covered witharelatively flexible covering or coating I5 contrasting 'in color with the metal foil so as to produce a two- Y Vtone color effect. The coating I5 extends to the identified by the numeral I1 comprises 'a sheet` of flexible paper I8 having'anv integral layer of metal foil I9 on one of its faces. The composite wallcovering I1 has a point-by-point'bead-like broken outline 20 madesby pointed impressions 2l forming an ornamental 1igurej22. The pointby-point outline. ofthe ornamental figure Yhas been impressed on the paper face and extends intothe metal foil face and lies in relief on the metal face. The space aroundfthe 'figure or around the broken outline in'V relief 'has been covered with a relativelyexible covering or coating 23 contrasting in color With'the metal foil so as to produce a two-'tone color effect. `f1`he coating 23 extends to the broken outline 279 `and lies below the upper'surface of the broken outline.

The pointed bead-like impressions 2| are o f very smalldiameter and ofsmall surface areaV so'tha't paste can enter therein and when the Wall cov-V ering is pasted to a Wall practically the entire normally concealed paper surface has paste .ap-` plied to it. l y

' Figure `3 shows aportion of the ornamental ligure 22 covered with substantially transparent colored lacquer 24. The portion 24'is'madedarker than the portion r2| to subdue the metallic luster of the foil.

' Figure 5 shows a modification of the wall coverings shown in Figures 1 to 4, inclusive. The

Wall covering identified vby the numeral 25 com-- prises a sheet of flexible paper (not shown) having an integral layer of metal foil 29 on one of its faces. The composite wall covering 25 has a point-bypoint bead-like broken outline 21 form.- ing an ornamental metallic figure 28.4 Thesurface of the figure 28 has fabricated therein raised dash-like impressions 29. The space around the figure or around the broken Aoutline has been covered with a relatively flexible coveringjor coating 30 contrastingin color with the metal foilV so as to produce at least a two-tone" color effect. @The point-by-point outline and dash-like impressions break up and soften the metallicnish. Y

` 'Figure 6 "shows a modified Wall coveringV 35 comprising a sheet of iiexible paper '(not shown) Mines and having an integral Iayer of metal foil on one of its faces. The composite wall covering 35 has a point-by-point bead-like broken outline 31 forming an ornamental leaf metallic ligure 38. The leaf portions have point-by-point raised impressions simulating lines or ribs 39. The surface of the figure 38 has a colored portion 40 made by superposing Ya layer of substantially transparent colored lacquervthrough which the metallic surface underneath shines through and brightens the colored lacquer surface. The ligure 36 has another portion 4 I covered with a layer of colored and substantially transparent lacquer darker than the portion 49 through which the metallic surfacereflects but faintly. The'variously colored layers of lacquer subdue and darken the metallic sheen of the metal foil 36 and the ornamental metallic figure acquires a refined and highly Valued finish which the original metal foil does not possess.V

Figure '1 shows a modified wall covering 45 comprising; a sheet of flexible paper 45 having an integral layer of metal foil 41 on one of its faces. The composite wallcovering 55 has pointed beadlike raised impressions 48 all over the entire area of the wall covering. Portions of the metal surface area are covered and concealed with a layer of coloring matter 49 Vforming a .dullV ground. Another portion is uncovered and exposes a metallic figure 5I!V having a broken surface Vand a subdued metallic'eifect.

I' have found by experiment that the paper backing has to have sucient body to act as Ya reinforcement for the thin metal foil, but only of such thickness as Vwill permit the composite Wall or surface covering to be rollable. The paper backing must also be adapted for glueing to a wall.

It is to be noted that the colored flexible covering forming a ground around the ornamental ligures is substantially liat and forms a dull surface withoutgloss. Y

Figures 9jand 10 showa modified wall covering 55 comprisingja sheet of flexible paper 56 having integrally secured theretoa thin sheet of metal or metal foil 51. The composite wall covering hasy bead-like impressionsy 58 over the.-

entire area around the ornamental figures. VThe figured metallic areas 59 `are plain kor without theV bead-like impressions but have a subdued metallio effect.Y The bead-like-impressions 58 are covered with a relatively flexible coating 60 forming a dun ground. Y Y Y 'Figures 11 and 12 showa modified Wall covering 6I comprising aY sheetV of flexible paper 62 having integrally secured thereto a thin sheet of metal or metal foil I. The composite wall covering'jGI `has a plain metallic surface on the entire area around theornamental figures. The figured metallic areas 64 may be ornamented with contrasting colored lacquer v(i5 and 66 through. which the metal shines faintly. The areas around the metallic figures 84 iscovered with a relatively flexible coating 61 forming a dull ground. Y Y 4 It is to be noted that my composite metallic wall covering prevents light and air from passing through. My metallic wall covering deprives insects ofthe necessities for existence and prevents their germination and thriving.

Itis, alsoI to beY notedfthat the wall covering herein disclosed is non-porous and will not allow VanyV moisture to pass through the ornamental figured metallic portions or through the colored paint ground. x 1

In comparison with wal-l paper heretofore known, it is tobe noted that the Wall papers now in use are porous and have a tendency to absorb moisture and retain disease germs. My composite non-porous metallic Wall covering has nonporous surfaces which Will not absorb moisture or retain disease germs.

It is to be noted that the flat figured portion of the metallic foil surface may be broken up and made less pronounced, to produce a subdued metallic effect, as shown at 2| in Figure 3, or that a coating of colored and substantially transparent lacquer may be applied to portions of the figures, as shown at Mlfand M in Figure 6, to subdue the luster.

In accordance with the patent statutes I have described and illustrated the preferred embodiments of my invention; but it vvillV be understood that various changes and modifications can be made therein without departing from the spirit ofthe invention as defined by the appended claims.

I may fabricate and break up the ornamental surface areas otherwise than b-y bead-like or by dash-like impressions in relief.
