' new and original Design for Picture Hooks or Hangers; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

The figured design may be of any preferred pattern, and the vertical parts A A and their curved portions may be ornamented in the same manner as the bar or strip, or in a different manner when desired. The hanger is provided with a suitably-located projection or projections, as at a a.
