WIRE BASKET.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 4, 1909.

Application filed November 16, 1908. Serial No. 462.802.

To all whom it may concern: I

Be it known that I, EMMETTR. FRANKMN. i a citizen of'the United States, residing at Binghamton, in the county of Broome and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in VJire Baskets, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in wire baskets and particularly to that class of baskets which are used in markets for carrying and deiivery baskets.

It consists in certain peculiarities of construction and novel arrangement of parts thereof, as will be hereinafter set forth and specifically claimed.

The object of my invention is to provide such a basket as, while being constructed of wire, or otherwise, will have within it a rel movable lining so that no matter how large the mesh in the wire weave may be, it will hold the smallest article, and yet have the full strength and durability of a wire metallic rece tacle. I attain these objects by the nice anism illustrated in the accompanying drawing, inwhich Figure 1' is a perspective view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section taken on the line 3. 3

Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.

A represents a basket which may be made of wire of uniform size except the marginal rim wire a and the base wire 1) to which the strands composing the body portion of the basket are secured; the rim wire a and the base wire b necessarily are of lar or size to give strength to the structure.

11 order to have roper and firm handles for the basket and that the rim wires may be utilized therefor, I leave an opening in the mesh of the wire at each end of the basket, I make this 0 ening by shortening the cross wires 0" an 0' and d and d and twisting the ends of these shortened strands about the cross wires, e and c and f and f; and thus is left the open spaces G and G forming handle holes.

Within the basket I have certain remov l side, ii an( able side and bottom linings, and to hold these in place I fasten to the interior of the basket across the sides and bottom cross wires 2 and 'i and across the ends the cross wires j and 5' I then insert flexible lining stri H placing these in position by bending the lining and inserting the ends beneath the cross wires 7: and h respectively. In the bottom, I insert the bottom lining strip I in the same manner and in the ends, the end lining strips, J and J respectively inserting them in the same manner. In this way I have a firm strong basket having all the strength as well as lightness of a wire basket and at the same time capable of holding the smallest article and of being renovated and renewed by the insertion of fresh new lining at any time.

It is obvious that I may use either a square form of basket or a circular form of basket if so desired and that my invention is applicable to other baskets than those composed of wire.

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

1. The combination of a basket having across the inner surfaces of its sides, ends and bottom cross wires stretched and beneath which cross wires areinserted flexible strips resting against the inner surface of the sides, ends and bottom, forming in this position removable linings to the interior of the basket.

2. The combination of a basket having handle openings and having across the inner surfaces of its sides, ends and bottom, cross wires stretched; strips of flexible material inserted between the cross wires and against the inner surfaces of the sides, ends and bottom, the strips having 0 enings formed in them to correspond with tiie handle openings in the sides of the basket.

3. In a market basket composed of wire, the combination of a basket with a number of wires stretched across the inner surfaces of the sides, ends and bottom for the purpose of receiving and holding strips of material s for the sides, one on each seem remo'vably placed therein to form e remov- J to the sides, endswand bottom by said last ablelining to the basket. v named Wires. v 4.
