SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 23,637, dated September 11, 1894.

Application filed April 24,1894. Serial No. 508,880. Term of patent 14 years.

To all whom it may concern,-

Be it known that we, CUR'rIs S. CASAD and EDGAR G. CASAD, citizens of the United States, and residents of Silvcrton, in the county of San Juan and State of Colorado, have invented a certain new and original Design for Picture-Frames; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to designs for picture frames, and the leading features of the same consist of a picture exposing opening formed by a series of spiral bands arranged in parallel relation and in a pile to present a beveled edge portion, outer spiral bands forming the edge portion disposed in parallel series to give a beveled effect, trefoil shaped openings in the corners formed of spiral bands and subtended by angular braces constructed of spiral bands, and a prop composed of spirally twisted bands arranged in vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines.

The accompanying drawing, is a perspective view of the picture frame embodying the invention and looking toward the front thereof.

Similar numerals of reference are employed to indicate corresponding parts.

Referring to the drawing the numeral 1 designates an elliptical picture exposing opening having a binding 2 comprising a series of spiral bands superposed one above the other varying in size. The said binding is located in the center of the frame,and on opposite sides at top and bottom thereof are vertical and horizontal superposed spiral bands 3, which form the outer binding or 0 bevelof the frame, and the elliptical arrangement of the central binding is held in connection with the outer binding by vertical spiral bands 4, horizontal spiral bands 5, diagonal spiral braces I and segmental spiral tie strips 7 extending from one side of horizontal braces to the other.

Connected to the diagonal spiral braces are inside corner braces 8, which are composed of spiral bands, whose inner ends are circularly curved and whose outer portions are straight and run to the corners of the outer binding in diagonal lines.

Resting on the corners of the outer bindings and connected to the inside corner braces are trefoils 9, composed of spirally bent bands and forming corner ornaments.

To the back of the frame is secured a rest prop composed of horizontal and vertical spirally bent bands 10 and 11, which are braced by diagonal spirally bent bands 12.

At the bottom of the frame, and extending up close to the lower portion of the elliptical picture exposingopening, is a spiral band 13 of truncated outline or form.

The entire arrangement has a pleasing effect upon the eye, and by varying the size of the bands or spirals the design may be correspondingly changed.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is The design for a picture frame as herein shown and described.

In testimony whereof we have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
