$PEGIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 691,002, dated January 14:, 1902.
Application filed November 2, 1901. Serial No. 80,953. (1% model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, EDWARD R. SARGENT, of the city and county of New Haven, State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Casket Ornaments and Similar Articles, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, which form a part thereof, and in whioh-- Figure 1 represents a top view, one corner being partly broken away, of a casket-plate embodying myinvention; Fig. 2, an enlarged vertical section on line 2 2 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3, a detached top view of the ornamental border, and Fig. at a detached bottom View of the plate proper.
In all figures similar letters of reference represent like parts.
This invention relates to casket ornaments or similar plates with a substantially fiat surface on which names or other characters may be inscribed and which may be secured to caskets, doors, doc.
The improved plate consists of two parts or a flat portion having one or more lateral projections and a continuous ornamental border fitting under the lateral projections of the plate and being secured thereto, so that the whole may be readily assembled, cheapin construction, and neat in appearance.
Referring to the drawings for a more particular description, the parts designated by the letter A represent a fiat plate on which a name or other character may be inscribed. 13 represents one or more integral lateral proj ections extending from the edge or edges of said plate, (herein shown four in number,) located at the corners of the plate and concave on their under sides.
C represents depending hollow screw-sockets on the under side of the lateral projections B.
D is a continuous one-piece ornamentalborder (herein shown of a rope design) having one or more perforations H, corresponding to and adapted to receive the screw-sockets C.
E represents the screw or screws, adapted to enter and engage in the sockets C and by themselves or together with washers F secure the border to the projections of the plate. Obviously by the formation of the continuous border a single screw only is necessary to hold the border to the plate, but more may be used, if desired, for, as shown, one is located at 55 each corner in the drawings. By means of the sockets projecting into and through the border short screws may be used of less length than the thickness of the border to hold the parts together.
Having now described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. A two-part casket ornament, or similar article, consisting of a flat plate with one or more lateral projections, and a continuous ornamental border over which said projection or projections extend, and to which the same are secured, substantially as described.
2. A two-part casket ornament, or similar article, consisting of a fiat plate with one or more lateral concave projections, each having on its under side a screw-socket, and a continuous ornamental border over which said projection or projections extend, and which is provided with one or more perforations corresponding to and adapted to receive said socket or sockets, together with means for securing said border to said socket or sockets, substantially as described.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand on the 31st day of October, 1901.
