v TURN TABLE FOR FLOWER POTS. No. 547,926. Patented Oct. 15,1895.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 547,926, dated Octobe 15,1895.

Application filecl June 6, 1896- Serlal No. 551,902- (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, J oHN HAWTHORN KIT- SON, engineer, a citizen of England, residing which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a simple construction of turn-table for holding flower-pots and like articles, as I shall describe, referring to the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 is a section, and Fig. 2 is a plan, with part of the turn-table broken away to show the base.

The turn-table consists of two parts stamped out of sheet metal. The upper part A is made with hollows a, which give stiffness combined with lightness, and has its central part embossed in partly-spherical form, so that it can rest and turn freely on a spherical head I), projecting up from the other part or base B. This is stamped so as to have a hollow b surrounding the centralprojection, the ridge b which surrounds it nearly but not quite touching the deepest parts of the hollows a, so as to prevent rocking of the upper part. Both parts A and B have their edges stifiened by a flange or lip a and b respect ively.

Having thus described the nature of my said invention and the best means I know for carrying the same into practical efiect, I claim 1. A turntable for flower pots or similar articles consisting of a sheet metal base having a central portion stamped up to form a head, and a revoluble sheet metal disk having its central portion stamped up into a boss arranged to rest upon the head of the base portion, substantially as described.

2. A turntable for flower pots or the like,

comprising a sheet metal base stamped up to I
