TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Be it known that l, Onnltnns vW. EMERSON, of Hartford, in the State of Connecticut, have invented, made,
and applied to use a certain new and useful Improvement in Lamp-Shades; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact'descriptiouof the said invention, reference being had to the annexed drawing, making part of this specification, wherein- Figure 1 is a plan of my improved shade-holder, and t v A Figure 2 is a vertical section at the line a: at, showing the paper shade in red lines, as applied upon my improved holder.
Similar parts are denoted by the same letters.
Lamp-shades have heretofore been made of paper, folded together like a fan, and supported by a wire ring passing through the folds of the paper at the upper end, so that the lower end of the shade can be expanded or spread for use, or contracted to occupy but 'littlespace in transportation.
The nature of my said invention consists in a shade-holder, formed with a metallic ring supported on wires extending down to the gas-burner or to the lamp, said wires also extending up and forming spring-catches for holding the wire ring that passes through the folds of the paper shade/and keeping the same distended between the ring of the holder and the ring in the shade.
In the drawing, ais thering of my shade-holder, from which the wires 5 6 pass down to the ring 0 and socket d, for setting upon agas-burner, as shown, or said Wires 6 b may pass down to any suitable ring for setting upon a. lamp or burner. The upper ends of the wires II project beyond the ring a, and are formed as spring-loops e, andf is the wire ring passing through the folds of the paper shade 9. When this wire ringfis pressed overthe spring ends e of the wires d, it is held by passing into the bends of said ends e, and the paper shade is distended and held between the rings a andf.
What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is v A holder for lamp and gas-shades, formed with the ring a, wires 1) b,-and spring-ends e a, over which the ringf of the shade g is passed and held as set forth.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my signature this 13th day of March, 1867.
CHARLES W. EMERSON.
