DESIGN FOR A SHOW-CARD HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part Of Design NO. 27,364, dated July 13, 1897'.
Application filed April 23, 1897. Serial No. 634,296. Term of patent 7 years.
To (til whom it may concern/.-
Ile it known that we, JOSEPH M. HILL and JOHN C. RENNER, citizens of the United States, residing at Chicago, county of Cook, and State of Illinois, have invented and produced a new, useful, and original shape of Show-Card Holders, which is fully set forth in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part thereof.
The figure in the drawing is a perspective of our show-card holder.
At two points A A a short distance apart the wire a, of which the holder is made, is bent, forming two arms which extend in the same plane and approximately parallel, and which, together with the connecting cross-bar between the bends, constitute one finger B of a gripper for securing the device to a shelf. At points equally distant from the bends A each of the branches is coiled spirally at A A, the wires running from the coils approximately parallel to each other in the same plane, which is approximately at right angles to the plane of the finger B, and at a short distance from these coils both branches of the wire are bent in the same plane, approximately parallel to the plane of the finger 13, and extend in the direction in which that finger extends from the coils A" a distance approximately equal to the length of said finger, and bothwires are given acute angular bends A and extend from said bends converging toward each other back to a plane through the spiral coils A at right angles to the plane of the linger 1 thus forming two fingers A A, and are there bent at right angles and extend alongside each other in such plane for a sufiicicnt distance to be secured together, one of the wires being farther extended up to any desired distance and termi nating in the spiral coil r\' ,whieh is adapted to hold between its eonvolutions a showcard or price-ticket.
\Ve claini The design for Sllt'HY-Lflltl holder herein shown and described.
In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands, in the presence of two witnesses, at Chicago, Illinois, this 23d day of April, 1897.
