Specification of Letters Patent.
.Patented. Aug. 6, 1907.
Application filed September 19, 1906. v Serial No. 836,240-
To all whom it may concern:
- Be it known that I, ANDREW MYER TAYLOR, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Port Ewen, in
vented anew and Improved Garment-Hanger, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved garment hanger, more especially designed for the use of ladies, and arranged to conveniently and properly support a coat, a skirt, a plurality of shirt waists and ahat in a very compact form and without danger of crushing or otherwise injuring any of the garments, at the same time allowing convenient removal or replacing of any one of the garments.
The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, which will be more fully described hereinaiter and then pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure l is a perspective view of the improvement; Fig. 2 is an enlarged'side elevationof the upper end of of the depending hooks of the supporting arm, and Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the upper end of the bracket, showing its suspension from the top of a door.
The bracket A of the garment hanger is preferably made of wire bent into triangularshape and having a back B, a bottom supporting arm C and a connecting arm D connecting the outer end of the supporting arm 0 with the upper end of the back B. The upper end of the back B is formed into two eyes B, B preferably at right angles one to the other, and of which the eye B isadapted to be engaged with a nail, hook or the like, driven in the wall, while the eye B is adapted to be engaged with the top of a door or the like in case a nail or hook is not available (see Fig. 4). The lower end of the back B is provided with a transversely extending rib B forming. a rest to engage the wall or other surface below the hook on.which the eye B is hooked, so as to give the" desired stability to the bracket A.
The bottom arm 0 is provided with a plurality of depending hooks C, 0 C and 0 extending downwardly and rearwardly and spaced apart, and the said preferably made of wire, of which the hanger E is for supporting a ladys coat while the hangers E, E are adapted to support shirt waists and the hanger E is adapted to support a skirt. Each of the hangers E, E, E E is suspended from' the corresponding hook G, 0 0 C at its middle, and as the hooks are spaced apart it is evident that the hangers are correspondingly spaced apart to allow ready and proper suspension of the several garments mentioned without the interference of one garment with the other, at the same time allowing convenient and quick removal or replacing of the garment without disturbing the adjacent one. The forward ends of the arms 0 and D are connected with each other by an eye F for the passage of a hat pin also passing through a ladys 'hat,
to allow convenient suspension of the hat from the forward end of the bracket A.
From the foregoing it will be seen that the garment hanger is very simple in construction, and by having the hooks C, 0 C and .0 arranged in the manner described, the several garments mentioned can be readily accommodated as well as a ladys hat, and in case the garment hanger is not to be used it can be readily packed into a comparatively small space by disconnecting the hangers E, E", E and E from the hooks C, 0 C and- G, to allow of placing the several parts one upon the other.
By using the device transversely in a wardrobe, the 7 garments suspended from the device occupy the space from the front of the wardrobe to the back thereof, thus allowing a number of the garment hangers to 'be used in a single wardrobe, for suspending a-large number of garments without interference of one garment 30 with another.
It will be noticed that the hat holding-eye is at the angle of the bracket opposite to the side provided with the transverse rib, and adjacent to the side provided with the supporting hooks, while the angle of the bracket provided with the supporting eyes is adjacent i to the sideprovided with the rib and opposite to the side provided with the hooks, and that one of the supporting'loops is arranged in a plane at right angles to Having thus described my invention, I claim as'new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. A device of the class described, comprising a substantially triangular bracket, having one of the sides thereof I provided with a. transverse rib, and another of the sides thereof provided with a plurality of supporting hooks adapted to support garment hangers, a hat holding-eye at the angle opposite to the side provided with the rib, and a. plurality of supporting eyes at one of the angles adjacent thereto, one of said eyes being arranged in a'plane at rightangles-to the plane of the other eye.
' 2. a device of the class described, comprising a substan tially triangular bracket, having one of the sides thereof provided with a transverse rib, and another of the sides thereof provided with a plurality of supporting books adapted to support garment hangers, and an eye at the angle opposite to the side provided with the rib said eye being adapted to permit the passage of a hat pin whereby to support a hat.
3. A device of the class described, comprising a substantially triangular bracket, having one of the sides thereof provided with a plurality of spaced supporting hooks for supporting garment hangers, and having one of the angles adjacent to said last named side provided with a hat holding-eye and having the angle opposite to said last named side provided with a plurality of supporting cycs,
one of said eyes being arranged in a plane 'atrightangles to the plane of the other supporting eye.
tinlly triangular bracket having one of the sides thereof 5 provided with a plurality of spaced hooks for supporting garment hangers, and having one of the angles adjacent to said side provided with an eye for the passage of a hat pin whereby to support a hat. I
5. A device of the class described, comprising a substantially triangular bracket having one of the sides thereof provided with a plurality of spaced hooks for supporting 4. A device of the class described, comprising a-substan ANDREW MYER TAYLOR.
