ALBERT SIBOLE, OF MIDDLEWAY, WEST VIRGINIA.

JARDINIRE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 767,17 5, dated August 9, 1904.

Application led April 5, 1904. Serial No. 201,688. (No model.)

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERT SIBOLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Middle- V flower-pot and drip vessel therein, as will be` hereinafter described, the novel features being pointed out in the claims.

Figure l represents a perspective view of a jardinire embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a vertical section thereof. Fig. 3 represents a vertical section of a portion at a right angle to Fig. 2.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.

Referring to the drawings, A designates the body of the jardinire, the same consisting of a block of wood having a vertical bore therethrough, forming the chamber B for the reception of the flower-pot C and the cup or pan D, the latter being below said iower-pot and serving to receive the water or moisture, mud, Sac., dropping from said flower-pot.

On the wall of the chamber B, below the top thereof, is the horizontal shoulder E, on which is rested the shoulder of the upper rim of the flower-pot, thus removably supporting the latter within said chamber.

In order to prevent dropping of the cup D or other disengagement thereof' from the chamber B, said cup is interloclred with the wall of said chamber. For this purpose in the present case I provide pins or studs F, which project horizontally into the chamber B and form L-shaped slots G in the cup D,

which are adapted to receive said pins and have the latter engage therewith after the manner of bayonet-joints, it being evident that when the cup is introduced into the chamber from below the vertical limbs of the slots receive said pins. Then when the cup is rotated said pins enter the horizontal limbs of said slots, thus sustaining the cup within said chamber and interlocking it therewith, so that accidental displacement of the cup and the loss of water, dirt, &c., therefrom are prevented. When, however, the c up is rotated in the reverse direction, the members of the bayonet-joints become disconnected, whereby the cup may be readily removed to have its contents discharged and to cleanse and repair the cup `when so required, said pan being accessible at the open bottom of the bore, so as to be capable of removal and restored withoutdisturbing the flower-pot.

It Will also be seen that the block of wood comprising the body A has the bark remainwater can drop to rot the same, the Water from the iiower-pot collecting von the pan D, from whence it may be readily removed.

Various changes may be made in the details of construction shown without departing from the general spirit of my invention, and I do not, therefore, desire to be limited in each case to the same.

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

1. In a jardinire, a block of Wood having a bore therein, a pin projecting into the said bore from the wall thereof, and a pan having a slot to receive said pin for removably suspending said pan from the latter in said bore.

2. In a jardinire, a block of wood having a bore therein, a shoulder on the inner Wall of said bore, a pin projecting into said. bore from said wall below said shoulder, a flowerpot suspended from said shoulder, and a pan having a slot to receive said pin for remov- 'ably suspending said pan from the latter in said bore. j 3. In a jardinire, a block of wood having a pot-receiving bore therein, the same being open from end to end in vertical direction, a pin projecting into said bore from the wall thereof, and a pan within said bore at the lower portion thereof adapted to engage with said pin for removably Supporting' said pan on said wall, said pan being accessible from below through the open bottom of said bore.

4. In a jardinire, a body having a bore therein, the same being open from end to end in Vertical direction, a flower-pot suspended within said bore, a pin projecting'into said bore from said wall, and a removable pan below said flower-pot adapted to be interlocked by said pin with said wall, said pan being accessible from below through the open bottom or' said bore.

5. A jardinire consisting of a body having a bore therein, the same being open from end to end in vertical direction, a shoulder on the wall of said bore, a iiower-pot suspended from Said shoulder, a pin projecting into said bore from said wall, and a pan below said flowerpot adapted to be interloclied with said pin, said pan having a slot adapted to receive said pin and removably connect said. pan with said body and being accessible from below through the open bottom of said bore.

6. A jardinire having a body composed of a block of Wood provided with a Vertical bore therein in the direction of the grain thereof, said bore being adapted to receive and sustain therein a flower-pot, and a drip-pan independent of said pot, said bore being open throughout in vertical direction and said pan being below said pot and being accessible at the open bottom of said bore without disturbing said pot.

7 A jardinire consisting of a body having a bore adapted to sustain a flower-pot therein, said body being formed of a block of wood in natural condition and said bore extending in the direction of the grain of the Wood and being open throughout from top to bottom and a pin projecting from said body into said bore and a pan removably suspended from said pin in said bore below the flower-pot.
