SPEQIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No.347,l95,dated August 10, i886.
v Application led January 23, 1886. Serial No. 189,499. (Specimens.)
To all whom it may concern.- Y.
Be it known that I, DAVID S. PLUME, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark,
in the county of Essex and State of New Jerfects of relief ornamentation; to doso without.
injury by scratching or cutting the surface of the glass or earthen ware; to secure a more durable article, andl one in which the engaging vor inner surfaces of the ornament more closely conform and ad-here to thelsurface of the ar-r ticle.
The invention consists in theornamented article of glass or earthen wareand in the process of producing the same, substantially as will be hereinafter set forth, and embodied in the claims.
Referring to the accompanying drawings, Figure l is an elevation of an earthenware article, and Fig. 2 is a sectional view of a portion of the same.
Similar letters of referenceindi'cate corresponding parts in each ofthe figures.
In carrying out the invention I first apply, with a brush, or mold with the hand, to or upon the glazed surface of the article to be ornamented a continuous net-work or openwork ornament, a; in adhesive or plastic matter, such as wax or a mixture of wax and glass cement, or paint. Thisnet-work or openwork extends in relief entirely around the eX- terior of the article I), conforming and adhering to the surface thereof.
of adhesive and plastic matter gives form to the nal ornament, which may be in low and flat relief, as when the application is simply traced or painted upon the surface by a brush, or be in high relief', as when said application is molded on the surface in wax or other plasv tic material capable of adhering to the surface,
This application or when the ornamental application is applied in'a series of thick and heavy coats one uponl the other. Upon the outer surface of the ornamental net-work, extending around the outside of the article, as described, is applied a lm or covering of black-lead or bronze-powder, which adheres to the viscid ornament, and upon this is deposited by electro-deposition a plate, c, of silver, gold, or other suitable metal 0r metals which conform to the design first imposed or applied, and produces a relief ornament in metal net-work which extends around the surface ofthe glass, and is held thereon firmly and securely, not only by the application ofthe viscid, gummy, or plastic and adhesive matter, but by the convexity of the ornamented article. After deposition the ornament may be engraved, or an effect of ornamentation may be obtained in the electroplatc in any other way to secure a more perfect nish.
What l claim as new is- 1. The process of ornalnenting glass or earthen ware, which consistsintirst painting, molding, or otherwise applying to the ware a contin-uous net-work or open-work ornament to the surface of the glass in adhesive matter, metallizing said adhesive matter and depositing an electroplate thereon, and thus producing a continuous open-work design or ornament in relief upon the surface of the said ware, substantially as set forth.
2. The process or method of ornamenting glass or earthen ware, which consists in giving form or outline to the open-work ornament in adhesive gum, paint, or plastic matter, and depositing an electroplate thereon, substantially as set forth.
3. As an article of manufacture, an article of glass or earthen ware provided with a continuous openwork ornament of electroplate with an intervening molded bed of wax or cement between, substantially as set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 19th day of January, 1886. A
