SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 23,610, dated August 28, 1894. A plication filed August 4, 1894. Serial No. 519,489. Term of patent 14 years.
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY E. RUSSELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Britain, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Shelf-Brackets, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a shelf bracket showing my design. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, and Fig. 3 is a horizontal section of the sameon thelinerc w of Fig. 2.
My design relates to the new, useful, and original shape or configuration of the article.
A designates the vertical member of my bracket and B the horizontal member. They are both substantially alike except the vertical member A is the longer of the two. The straight side edges 4 of these members are the most widely separated at the junction of said members and then said edges converge with a gradual taper outwardly and merge into the rounded ends 5. Each member is curved in cross section, as shown in Fig. 3 whereby the top of the member B and back of the member A is trough shaped and their reverse sides are in the form of a central ridge 7. In side view these members have the greatest thickness at their junction as at 6 Fig. 2, from which point the summit of the ridge curves a short distance and then extends in a straight line with gradually decreasing depth to near the rounded end 5 where it terminates in a slight shoulder 8.
What I claim is- The design fora shelf bracket substantially as herein shown and described.
