Where it is desired to have the lamp cord 3| extend in from the rear the blank may be given a suitable configuration to provide an opening indicated at 32. The size and shape of the opening 30 to provide access to the lamp need be only large enough to admit the hand and provide suitable ventilation for the sign.
Figure 6 shows a blank 40 similar to two of g the blanks l connected at the center and when such a blank is conformed to shape a diamond,
shaped sign 4| shown in Figure 7 results. lhis sign provides a different shaped area for the reception'of the sign material. The diamond may be mounted with'the long side horizontal or ver tical, or instead of a diamond shaped sign a square or rectangular shaped sign may be provided. Inasmuch as the form of support of the interior construction of the lamp openingsmay be varied Figure '7' omits showing such'details.
It is obvious that the invention may be embodied in many forms and constructions within the scope ofthe'claims and'I wish it to be un-' derstood that the particular forms shownare but a few of the many forms. Various modifications and changes being possible, I do not 0th erwi se limit myself in any way with respect thereto.
What is claimed is:
1. A sign comprising a sign body formed out of a blank of decorated, flexible, translucent sheet material by bending it into a closed loop with front and rear parallel sides and curved ends,
the'body having a front flat area converging toward an apex remote from said loop and opposite a perpendicular dropped to the center of the loop, semicylindrical ends having converging axes and continuing from the fiat front area around behind the same and meeting the fiat rear area, the height of .the sign body and the slope of the ends'being suchth at the two semicylindrical ends substantially meet, means for securing the ends of the looptogether the ends being disposed midway of the rear flat area the decoration being on the ends'and front of the body, a fiat base plate havingthe configuration of the loop and to whose peripheral edges the bodyis secured, and alamp socket and lamp secured to the plate.
2. A sign comprising a sign body formed out of a blank of decorated, flexible, translucent sheet material by bending it into a closed loop with front and rear parallel sides and curved ends, the body having a front fiat area converging toward an apex remote from said loop and opposite a perpendicular dropped to the center of the loop, semicylindrical ends having converging axes and continuing from the fiat front area around behind the same and meeting the flat rear area, means for securing the ends of the loop together the ends being disposed midway of the body between the tabs being above the support, and a finishing strip about the tabs, the
ends of the support and the adjacent edges of thebody.
3. A blank for asign body'comprisin-g a sheet of flexible light transmitting material of generally rectangular configuration and bearing sign indicia in a triangular area based on a long side of the rectangle with its sides convergin toward the center of the other long side, and additional sign indicia laterally of and adjacent the sidesof the triangular area, the blank having tabs along the base of the triangular area and along the remoter portions of the ends, the corners between the tabs being arcuate.
4. An interiorly illuminated sign comprising a flat base of substantial width with parallel front and rear edges, and a sign body made of a sheet of flexible light transmitting material and having" a long edge'and two short edges at substantially right angles toth'e long edge when the sheet is fiat, the long edge'being secured to the front of the base, the shorter edges being secured to the rear of the base, the material being bent about axes converging toward one another from points midway between the front and back edges of the base and opposite the outer ends ofthe edges secured thereto, and a lamp carried by the base within the body. 5. An advertising sign having a base with parallel sides and substantially semicircular ends, a lamp socket and lamp carried by the base, and a one piece body about the lampand formed of translucent sheet material, the body having a substantially flat front portion of triangular configuration, end portions of substantially semicylindrical configuration with converging axes which intersects below the top of the body, and a back interconnecting the rear of the end portions, the front of the body beingprovided with light transmitting indicia.
