Dec. '25, 1945. c. HUBER ORNAMENTAL CONTAINER Filed July 26, 1944 Patented Dec. 25, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ORNAMENTAL CONTAINER Charlotte Huber, New York, N. Y. Application July 26, 1944, Serial No. 547,484
The object of my invention is to produce a simple and cheap ornamental container which can be used on Christmas trees and also in general as a holder.
' In describing the invention reference will be made to the accompanying drawing in which:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the article viewed from its front.
Fig. 2 is a rear view, and
Fig. 3 is a view of a fastener element, holding the front and rear panels together.
The article is composed of similar front and rear panels 4 connected by spacers 6,-there being as shown three of these spacers in a V-shape arrangement. The panels 4 may be of any material, but the front one should be of one which is transparent where it is desired to have the device hold a photograph which would lie between the panels with its bottom edge resting upon the central spacer and its sides supported by the side spacers.
It will be seen that each spacer 6 is formed by a wood or plastic cylinder with two metallic fastening elements 1 and two ornamental cords '9 passing through a channel 3 along its central axis. It will be understood that the metal strips wedge the cords in the aperture, the. cord being continuous so as to form a loop H at one end of the central spacer 6, overlying the rear panel 4. The free ends of the cord projecting from the opposite end of this central spacer Bare carried in the form of a V over the face of the front panel 4 to the side spacers 6 at the top of the device. Through these spacers 6 the cord is again that each metal strip 1 has its ends bent at right angles to clamp the panels 4 and press them into contact with the ends of the spacers 6. It will further be seen that each bent end of the metal strip has an eye 8 through which the cord is passed before forming .the loop II or bow-l0. Openings 5 are provided in the panels 4 for the passage of the metal strips and the cord 9. The portions of the cord lying between the ends of the metal strips I are indicated by l2 in the figures. It is obvious that instead of 9 being an ornamental cord it may be a ribbon.
, in V shaped arrangement, and with securing elepassed to the rear panel 4 and then tied in a bow of the panel.
