SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 18,579, dated August 28, 1888.

Application flied July 25. 1888. Serial No. 281.0%. Termofpatent 3} years.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DANIEL'RHODES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Washington, in the District of Columbia, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Fans, Handkerchiefs, &c.; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part thereof.

My invention relates to a new and useful design for fans, handkerchiefs, banners, and simi lnr articles; and it consists in the arrangement of parts and figures and ornamental grouping on the body of a fan.

The leading features of my invention are the body having thereon the representationof a suspended banner, and two beaded portraitspaces above each end of the banner, the bancar being decorated as hereinafter described.

The banner is substantially rectangular in shape, its lower edge being scalloped,while its upper edge is straight and is attached to a fixture or pole, to which the suspending-cords are represented as being attached. Around the lower edges of the banner is a double-striped border, the inner lower field of the banner being plain. A shield having stars on acolored background atits top and vertically arranged bars below the stars of constrasting colors is represented as being placed on the center of the banner. A series of flags are represented as protruding out from behind the shield, three on each side thereof, a portion only of the flags showing. Above the shield isahorizontally-arranged scroll. A curved scroll is placed near the bottom of the banner, which extends from one side of the center seal lop to the other. On the upper part of the banner, and represented as hanging over the same, are two eortai ns, their upper ends meeting above the shield, their lower ends and innor sides being drawn back or draped to display the shield and flags. Cords are represented as securing the curtains in place. The portrait spaces or panels above referred to haveaspray of laurel-leaves extending around their lower and outer sides. These sprays of leavesare represented as being attached to tho suspension-cord.

Having thus described my in vcntion, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The design for a fan, handkerchief, &,c., substantially as herein shown and described.

In testimony whereof aliix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
