SPECIFICATION forming` part ot Design NOt16,633`. dated ApriiZO, 1886.

ApplinntioniledMny 2,1885. Serial No.164rl40.` Termin( [intently-ems.`

To all whom it` may concern:

Be it lrnown that I, EMILE GERIBJD, a citi zen: of the French Republic, and a residentof Limoges, France, have invented or produced a new and original Design for Dishes, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to` theaccompaniying drawings, forni;- ing part hereoii'.`

The leading features of my design are the division of the upperor concave side of the dishiintoequalsectorsby means of radiailines, each sector beings. lobe with convex outline and of concave shape, approximately a segment of a holhow sphere, withitsconcavesun face ornamented by radiating strips and a concentric ground inthe middlezportion of the dish; also, thieradiating. strips on said lobesL being smooth and slat-like,. and appearing to overlap eachother; and, also, the tretoil shape forthe dish, with the radiating stripson the lobes, the concentric` ground .roughened, and an ornamentiin its center..

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a trefoilshaped dish embodying my design; Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof, and Fig. 3 isa plan veiw ot? a modiliedshiapeoi dish embodying my de si i.

; glnwill iiirst describe rny design with reference to Figs. l and 2.` Viewed in plan, the dish is of trefoil shape, with lobes AA A, of convex outlines, and with reentering angles or indentations a a at the junction ofthelobes. Viewed in perspective, the lobes A are seen to be deeply concaved or dished, eaclr being approximately of the shape of a segment of a hollow sphere. The particular degree or depth of concaving is, however, nnessential, as the dish may be very flat or very deep without necessarily thereby departing from the essential features of this design. The junction of the lobes is marked by a line or slight ridge, b, extending from each angle a toward the center of the dish. Underneath the dish there is the usual foot or fiange, c. (Seen in Fig. 1.) This flange may be continuons or interrupted. It forms no part Of this design. The surface ornamentation on the inside of the dish is preferably in low relief, and is` shown best in Fig. 2. In thc center of the dish is a circular ornament, d, which may be varied somewhat. In the particular' configuration shown it consists of a central; knob with radial lines ini simulation of a daisyblossom. Around the central ornamentiis a gronnd e, of roughi texture. In the particular patterni shown it consistsoli numerous inidentatiolns close together and rounded iu iniitation of hammered metal. The outline of this ground is approximately circular, with theexception of the lineszor ridgesb b b, which extend into and across iti to or nearly to the central ornament, di. These ridgesb` thus eni- `teringthe ground e appear to divide iti into three segments. The outer and most concave portion oteachi lobeA is: occupiedbya slatted i design, f f, whichiconsists OE radial lines with 'dat spaces between there.` These spaces are sm'ooth slatlikesurfaces, and they appear toi lap over upon each other somewhat after the manner-of the weatherfboardiug on a house. "Thespaces or slats are shown as raised in reliet over thezground e, and as terminatizngwith roundedends; but` these are notessential features oi' the design. This onterornamentation, f, constitutes; one: of the segregahle: ele` ments of this design.

The convex-lohed outline shown ini Fig. 2 may be the external` outline or edge ot? the dish, as shown or the` edge ot the dish may extend` beyon this outline and terminate ini any desired shape of outline, without thereby departing from the distinctive features of my design; nor is it absolutely essential to my design that the precise number of lobes shown shall always be followed.

Fig. 3 shows my desi nas applied to a dish havingvelobesinstea of three, and having a circular outline beyond the outline of the lobes. In other respects there is no change.

I claim- 1. In a design for a dish, the radial lines b b, dividing the dish into equal sectors, each sector comprising a lobe, A., of convex outline and of convex shape, being approximately a. segment of a. hollow sphere with its surface ornamented with radiating strips, and a concentric ground, e, of approximately circular outline, substantially as described and shown.

2. In a design for a dish, the lobes A A, of convex outline, with their surfaces composed of smooth radiating Slat-like stri ps appearing mesa tm overlap: enel @them` substantially' aus?A dey In] witnesslwhfereof I halvehrewnlbosiigmed scribed and szlhmwn. my nwmevin tlm presence of ww subscribing 3.` The design fama; dish herein described, Wilt:Heisman` and shown in Uhewccmmpanyiing' drawings,` Ulm 5 salma` aonsisiug of a Hermit-shaped outline with cenhral' omwmen d;y roughened ground e, and smraweyf,l wtlh nadliasimg slat-llikesrrips;
