SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 16.015, dated March 31, 1.885.

Tn ali whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, SIDNEY S. NILEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, county of Cook, and State of Illinois, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Door-Knobs and Escutclieons, ol'which the following is a specification, reference being made to the accompanying drawing, forming part thereof, and in which is shown a perspective view of a door-knob and escntcheon embodying my design.
The leading features of this design consist in a rectangular escntcbeon provided with a rosette ornamented with leaves, and panels both above and below the rosette ornamented with heavy lines forming diamond shaped spaces in rows, the spaces of each row having a series of fine lines crossing them and at right angles to each other, and having surrounding said panels, when taken together, a bordering ornamented with leaves.
Another leading feature of my design is the knob, the side edge and shank of which are plain, and its face provided with a circle, within which are diamond spaces similar to those in the panels, and surrounded by a circular border ornamented with leaves.
Referring to the drawing, A is the escntcbcon, which is [lat and rectangular` in form, and B is the rosette, which is circular in form. Below and above the rosette are panels C and D, respectively, in which are diamond-shaped spaces formed by lines ab, respectively cross ing each other, and given prominence by close lines c d, extending at a right angle to each other. As shown, the diamond-shaped spaces are divided into triangular spaces by rightangular lines e f, crossing each other and bisecting the apices of the diamond spaces. The panel D presents the same ornamentation as the panel C. Both of these panels are sur rounded by a narrow plain surface or line, g,
and between this and a similar surface, h, on the outer edge of the escuteheon is a bordering composed of a number of leaves, E. The rosette B has the form of a truncated cone, around which are arranged small panels alternately containing leaves and diamond spaces similar to those on the escuteheon. The knobshank F is cylindrical and plain, and the cir- 5o cular knob G has its periphery plain, and a circular panel. i, and bordering corresponding with that of the escutcheon. only that these panels describe circles instead of angular lines.
The design herein shown and described is particularly pleasing to the eye when in polished brass or other similar surface, when plain or partly enameled, or, if desired, frosted.
As shown. the lines may be finer in some of the diamond spaces than others, in order to 6o show a contrast between alternate spaces; but it would not be a departure from the essential features to omit in the diamond spaces these fine lines, or to have a part or all of them polished, frosted, or enameled.
I claim- 1. The design for door-knobs and eseutcheons herein shown and described, the same consisting of central or inner panels composed of diamond-shaped spaces formed by lines cross- 7o ing each other, and a surrounding border representing a series of leaves.
2. The design for door-knobs and escuteheons herein shown and described, the same consisting of diamond-shaped spaces or panels surrounded by a bordering of leaves, and an intermediate rosette having a series of panels alternately ornamented with leaves and diamond spaces.
