Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented April 27, 1909.

Application filed. August 28, 1908. Serial No. 450,696.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, VIOLA FRANTZ Goon,

, a citizen of the United States of America,

residing at Greensburg, in the county of Westmoreland and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Taxing-Pad and Iron-Holder, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to t e accompanying drawing.

This invention relates to a combined waxing pad and iron holder, and the objects of my invention are, first, to provide a simple and inexpensive attachment for ironing boards; second, to provide a durable iron rest that will protect the covering of an ironing board from the heat of an iron and third, to provide a novel waxing pad.

I attain the above objects by a device that can be advantageously used in hand laundries, or as an ordinary household article, the device being applicable to ironing boards of various widths, and the iron sup orting material and wax readily renewe when worn.

The invention will be more fully described hereinafter and reference will now be had to the drawing, wherein,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of one end of an ironing board equipped with my combined iron holder and waxing pad, Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view of the ironing board illustrating my device in longitudinal section, and Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of a portion of the ironing board illustrating the device in cross-section.

In the accompanying drawings, 1 designates an ironing board covered with a piece of fabric 2 to provide a smooth and uninterrupted ironing surface. At one end of the ironing board I arrange my device which is attached to an ironing board by a piece of wire, said piece of wire being bent in the form of a yoke, with the yoke end 3 bent to engage one edge of the ironing board, while the ends of the piece of wire extend across the board and are bent downwardly and under the board, as at 4. This formation of the piece of wire provides two parallel rods 5, and mounted upon said rods are the sleeved edges 6 of two pans 7 and 8, the former being provided with a piece of asbestos 9, while the latter is provided with a waxing material 10. The ends of the pans are flanged, as at 11, to hold the asbestos and the wearing material upon the pans. The

asbestos is the ordinary fire-proof material at present used for various purposes, while the waxing material is composed of a mixture of salt, asbestos and araffin, the asbestos being used as a bin er, while the salt and paraflin ingredients are used for waxing purposes.

It is apparent from the novel construction of my device, that the iron support can be used independently of the waxing pad, and these two parts may be separate and used separately if desired.

The wire frame of the device is preferably made of malleable wire, whereby after the yoke end thereof has been placed in engagement with the ironing board, the opposite end of the wire can be bent downwardly and under the edge of the ironing board, to lirmly hold the device at one end of the board.

The flanged ends 11 of the pan 7 together with the sleeved edges thereof prevent an iron from becoming accidentally displaced when placed upon the support. The pans are preferably made of light and durable tin or a metal that can be readily worked into the desired shape.

l/Vhile in the drawings forming a part of this application there is illustrated the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is obvious that the same can be varied or changed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having now described my invention what I claim as new, is:

A support for laundry purposes comprising a pan consisting of a rectangular body having its ends provided with inwardly extending fhnges forming retaining means for a sheet mounted in the pan, said pan having its sides formed with longitudinally extending sleeves of a length equal to the length of the pan, and a retaining yoke having its ends provided with angular return bends adapted to overlap the side edges of the support for securing the yoke in position, said yoke having that portion between the angular return bends extending in the same plane, said intermediate portion of said yoke extending through said sleeves for connecting the pan to the support.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
