W. STUBBI'NG. TELEPHONE ARM BEST AND RECEIVER HOLDER. No. 533,619. Patented Feb. 5,1895.

UNITED STATES PATENT @rricn.

WILLIAM STUEBIN G, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO FRANK A. LEININGER, OF SAME PLACE.

TELEPHONE ARM-REST AND RECEIVER=HOLDE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 533,619, dated February 5, 1895.

Application filed October 30, 1894- Serlal No. 527,414 (No model.)

To all whom, it may concern.-

Be it known that 1, WILLIAM STUEBING, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Telephone Arm-Rest and Receiver-Holder, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing.

My invention relates to telephone supports, and provides a rest for the elbow, and a support or holder for the receiving tube, and is intended to relieve the irksomeness of an unaccustomed position, while receiving or waiting for a message.

The drawing which is a part of this specification is a general view of my invention, showing clearly its several parts, and their relations and uses.

A. is a base supporting the parts, and by means of which the apparatus is secured to the wall or other structure, at a proper distance from the telephone box.

13.13. are armsor standards, one end secured to the base, and supporting the other parts.

0. is a bar, round, notched or toothed, and held vertical by the arms, into the heads of which the ends are screwed or otherwise fitted.

D. is a sleeve piece, sliding up and down the bar, and revolving upon it.

E. is a curved arm integral to the sleeve, its top expanded, and holding an elbow rest, F. This rest may be integral to thearm, but preferably is cushioned on a block, and properly attached.

II. is a pawl, pivoted in the sleeve, engaging the notched bar, and holding the rest at the required elevation.

I. is a rod fitted to and passing through holes in the arms, B. B. revolving, and sliding up and down, and held in place bya spring L. one end of which bears against it, while the other is attached to the base. This rod is bent at the upper part to a proper angle, and carries a support K. for holding the tube of the telephone. This support has a lug a. by

means of which it is screwed or otherwise fastened to the end of the rod I. Its end 7). is forked and curved, and its end a. is curved, so as to hold the receiving tube to the ear of the person using it, when properly adjusted.

The whole apparatus is made of any suitable metal, or the base and cushion cap may be made of wood.

Having thus described the nature and parts of my invention, its operation is obvious.

The parts having been adjusted to each other as shown and described, and the base attached to its support, to operate the device the rod 1, is moved up or down, and revolved, to a proper position, the receiving tube of the telephone is laid in the support, K, and adjusted to the ear, the pawl IL, is released from the bar (3., the sleeve and arm are moved up or down, and around, so as to bring the cushioned rest, F. to a proper position for the elbow, and the pawl released to engage the bar.

It is obvious, also, from the description that the two supports are used together, or separately, as may be desired.

Having thus described my device and its operation, what I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

In a telephone support, the combination with a telephone and its receiving tube, of a base having perforated arms, of a rod moving therein and bent near its upper end, of a spring holding said rod in place, of a curved and forked support for the receiver attached to the upper end of the rod, of a round and notched bar held vertical by the arms of the base, of an elbow-rest at the top of an arm, of a sleeve adjustable on the vertical bar and with which the arm is integral, and of apawl pivoted in the socket and holding it in place on the bar, as and for the purpose shown and described.

In testimony whereof I aftix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

WILLIAM STUEBING.
