Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 30, 1907.

Ap lication mad December 81,1906. Serial No. 350,272.

My invention relates to a broom holder, and the object of my invention is to provide a simple, inexpensive broom holder which may be cheaply produced, and

which is formed from a single piece of sheet metal.

My invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts, which will be hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in the claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a perspective view of a broom holder of my improved construction; Fig. 2- is a plan view of the holder in position on a wall, with dotted lines showing the location of the body of the broom on said holder.

My improved broom holder is constructed from a single sheet of metal, such as tin, sheet brass, or galvanized iron, and comprises a vertically disposed center plate 1, through which is formed suitable apertures 2, which receive screws or like devices which fasten the holder to the wall, or to an upright timber.

Formed integral with the side edges of the plate 1 are the triangular plates 3, which extend forwardly from the plate 1 at approximately right angles thereto, and the top edges of said plates 3 are bent into tubular form,

as designated by 4, with the forward ends thereof occupying a plane slightly above the rear ends.

When my improved holder is in use, it is secured to a wall or upright timber, and when a broom is to be positioned in the holder, the brush portion of the broom is arranged above the holder with the shoulders of said brush portion resting on the tubular portions 4 of the plates 3, and owing to the inclination of said tubular portions, the tendency of the broom is to gravitate rearwardly on said tubular portions, and to lie against the wall or upright to which the holder is secured.

A holder of my improved construction can be very cheaplyproduced, is very compact, and maintains the broom in a convenient position with the brush portion elevated.

I claim:

As a new article of manufacture, a broom holder, comprising a single sheet of metal, having a flat vertically dis posed body portion, there being apertures formed therein to receive fastening devices, triangular plates integral with the side edges of the body portion, which triangular plates extend forward from said body portion and diverging' slightly toward their outer ends, and the top edges of said triangular plates being inclined so that the forward ends thereof occupy a plane higher than the rear ends thereof, and the upper edges 01 said plates being bent outwardly to form tubular shoulders.

In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification, in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
