To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LOUIS 13. MAY, acitizen ot' the United States, and a resident of New York city, in the county of New York and 5 State of New York, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Labels, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying d rawing, which illustrates the design.
The leading feature of the design consists of a label having its top portion and one side formed of inwardly curved lines joined by short straight lines at each intersection, while the remaining side has a curved line at its [5 upper portion from the lower extremity of which commences a convexity which sweeps with a bold swing past the central line of the label and joins the lower curve at the opposite side by a short straight line.
The general shape of the label somewhat resembles a heraldic escutcheon, but it is not symmetrical. It has nine sides. The upper side a is a curved line, so that the top of the label is concave. From the left hand end of 25 line a, there extends downward, and more to the left, a short straightline 1/. From end of line I) there is alonger inwardlycurved line I. From the lower end of line 0, there sweeps with a bold swing to the right, the long rcversed curved line d. From the right end of line d, there rises toward the right, a very short straight line 6. From e there extends upward, and a little to the right an inwardly curved linef. From the upper end of liuef, there extends a short straight line 9, inclined a little outward. From the upper end of line 9 there springs a bold curved line It inclined considerably to the left, where it meets a short. straight line i, which is further inclined to the left, and then joins the right-hand endotli ne a.
I claim The design for a label substantially as herein shown and described.
Signed at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 80th day of January, A. l). 1895.
