HARRY T. LOOMIS, OF ONEIDA, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO THE NATIONAL CASKET COMPANY, OF SAME PLACE.

BOTTLE-SUPPO RT.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 541,864, dated July 2, 1895. Application filed December 22, 1-894:- Serial No. 532,649- (No model.)

.To all whom it may concern.-

Be it .known that I, HARRY T. LOOMIS, of Oneida, in the county of Madison, in the State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in, Bottle-Supports, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates to devices for holding or supporting bottles or similar devices, and the object is to provide an adjustable support that will hold bottles of different sizes, that is capable of being folded to occupy a small space and that may be removed easily and quicklyfrom the wall or beam to which it is secured.

To this end my invention consists in the combination with the part, as a wall, beam, or whatever the holder may be secured to, of a plate fixed or secured to said part, a frame secured to said plate by a dove-tailed tongue and groove, an adjustable side on the frame, and a pair of hangers pivoted to the lower side of the frame, one being pivoted to the adjustable side of the frame and the other hanger on the opposite side of the frame; and my invention consists in other combinations of parts hereinafter described and specifically set forth in the claims.

In the drawings accompanying this specification and forming a part hereof, Figure l is a perspective view of my improved bottle holder secured to a beam or rail as the case may be. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the lower side of the holder when the hangers are folded, and Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the holder taken on line w x of Fig. 2.

My invention is particularly adapted for use in supporting a bottle of fluid on the side of a folding embalming board. Said support may be easily changed from one side of the board to the other when desired, and when not in use may be folded and removed entirely and placed in a narrow receptacle usually fixed to such boards.

Referring specifically to the drawings, A indicates the side rail or beam of the frame of an embalming board, or in fact any part to which the support may be secured.

A is a plate having a vertical dove-tailed groove therein secured, to the rail by screws, and B is the rectangular frame of the bottle holder provided with a dove-tailed tongue to enter'said groove in the plate A. A small lip or projection, a, on the lower side of the plate forms a stop for the said tongue. The side of the frame, B, opposite that having the dove-tailed tongue, I), is adjustable or movable toward and from the opposite side so that bottles of different sizes may be accommodated and held securely thereby. The movable side, B, slides on the upper side of the other portion of the frame, and is provided at its ends with downwardly projecting screwthreaded lugs, f, f, which pass through slots 63 c, c, in the sides of the frame. Thumbnuts, f,f, on these lugs serve to secure or clamp the moving side, B, in place in the position desired.

Pivoted to and depending from lugs, 15', b, on the lower side of the side, B, is an angular or L shaped hanger, O, for the bottle, D, to rest upon. This hanger is prevented from swinging backward or away from the bottle by means of small projections, d, d,-thereon near-its pivots. On the side of the frame, B, opposite 13 is a similar hanger, 0'. This hanger is somewhat wider than the other hanger and when both are in their folded position as shown in Figs. 2 and 8, O is lower than the hanger, C, as its lugs, e, e, are lower. When a bottle, D, is to be inserted, the side, B, is moved out until the space within the frame is sufficiently large to admit the bottle. Then after the bottle is inserted the side is moved up to it and clamped there by means of the thumb nuts, f,f, on the lower side of the frame. Should it be necessary to change the bottle and frame to another plate, A, this may be done without taking the bottle from the frame orsupport but by merely withdrawing the frame, B, from the plate A.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

V 1. In combination with the part, A, of a pla'. e secured to said part, a frame secured to said plate by a dove-tailed tongue and groove, an adjustable side on the frame, and a pair dthangers pivoted to the lower side of the Ice frame, one being pivoted to the adjustable side and the other to the opposite side of the frame, substantially as described and shown.-

2. In a bottle-support or bracket, the combination with the part, A, of a plate secured permanently to said part and provided with a groove, a rectangular frame having a tongue adapted to enter said groove, an adjustable side on the frame movable toward and from the opposite side of the frame, hangers pivoted to opposite sides of the frame and depending therefrom when supporting the bottle, and means to clamp the movable sidein position, substantially as described and shown.

3. In a bottle-support or bracket, the combination With the part A, of a plate secured permanently to said part and provided with a dove-tailed vertical groove, the stop, a, a rectangular frame having a dove-tailed tongue to enter said groove, a sliding side on the side of the frame opposite that having the tongue, screw threaded lugs on the ends of the mov able side, slots, 0, 0, nuts, f, f, L shaped hangers pivoted to the lower side of the frame, one being pivoted to the movable side and the other to the opposite side, the hanger on the latter side being wider and lower than the other hanger, as set forth.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto si ned my name.
