DESIGN FOR A METER-CASE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 24,070, dated February 26, 1895. Application filed October 31,1894. Serial No. 627,578- Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FREDRICK A. LA ROCHE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a certain new and ornamental Design for Cases for Electrical Meters, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the drawings annexed.
My design consists in the external shape or configuration of the case.
Figure 1, is a front view, and Fig. 2 is a side view.
The'chief characteristic of my design is the general appearance of an unrolled folding fan with a projecting cylindrical appearing portion of small diameter rising above the point corresponding to the point of junction of the fan sticks.
The lower portion of the case presents a cylindrical shape of small diameter, all straight lines lying in the cylindrical surface being at right angles with the plane of the back of the case. The cylindrical portion apears flat in front and to project beyond the front face of the sector shaped portion of the case.
Above the cylindrical portion of the case appears the sector shaped portion, the radial lines of which coincide with the radial lines of the cylindrical portion and the curve of the top of which is concentric with the curve of the cylindrical portion, the width of the sector shaped portion being much greater than that of the cylindrical shaped portion. The front of the sector shaped portion appears flat or nearly so and the thickness of the sector shaped portion less than the length of the cylindrical portion. Its sides appear flat and closed and their planes intersect the cylindrical portion in straight lines in the direction of its length. The curved top of the sector shaped portion appears closed and nearly flat and the front face appears nearly closed.
I claim The design for a meter case substantially as shown and described.
FREDRICK A. LA ROCHE.
