No. 21,538. Patented May 17, 1892 ATTORNEYS.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 21,538, dated May 17, 1892.

Application filed April 20, 1892. Serial No. 429,954 Term of patent 7 years.

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN (tamvronn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and original Design for a lcnholder, of which the following isaspeeitication, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

Figure l is a side elevation of a penholder embodying the features of my design, and Fig. 2 is a plan View thereof.

The design is distinguished by its general effect, and the drawings are mainly relied upon to elucidate its general features, the following general description being given for the purpose of this specification.

At the pen-receiving end of the penholder a flange figure A is drawn, which merges into a cylindrical figure 1, which figure is so drawn that it appears to have a roughened or serrated surface. This tigure merges into what maybe termed the handle of the holder, and this handle is shaped as follows: From a point near the inner extremity of the upper portion of the cylindrical ligure I; the upper l line (i of the handle is curved downward, and where it approaches what may be termed the upper extremity" of the handle the line C is eonvexed. The under line I) of the handle at the central portion of the latter is just the reverse of the upper line; but; where the under line 1) approaches the end of the handle it is decidedly eon vexed, the convexed surface facing down\\'ard,and the convexity is so regulated that it imparts to what I have denominated the upper portion of the handle a blade-like appearance.

Viewed in plan the side lines E and E of the handle of the hohler appear ator near the center thereof to be curved in direction of each other, and the side lines are so drawn that they converge, terminating at the upper end of the handle in almost a knifeedge.

I claim The design for a penholder, substantially as herein shown and described.
