DESIGN FOR A STATUETTE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 28,055, dated December 7- Application filed September 22, I897. Serial No. 662,656. Term of patent 3 years.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, JOHN G. HICKS and JOHN MCGREER, citizens of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented and produced a new, useful, and original Design for Statuettes, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing.
The drawing shows a front elevation of our design for a statuette.
The drawing represents an aged negro standing erect and having the characteristic appearance of the typical old-time plantation darkey'. The head is covered with a hat having a wide rim and thrown back, so as to expose a part of the head. The rest of the attire is of a rough character, excepting the coat, which is of ample proportions, making some pretensions to dress, and is shown wide open in front. The feet are roughly shod and somewhat out of proportion as to s1ze.
The intention is to produce a design for a statuette in which the expression, attire, and attitude' present altogether an exceedingly comic and grotesque appearance, and yet not lacking somewhat in dignity-a figure that will be noticeable and attract universal attention.
A blank card (t isheld in one of the uplifted hands and which may be inscribed in accordance with the nature of the business for which the design is usedin advertising. This card, however, may be omitted without departing from the leading features of the design.
\Vhat we claim is-- The design for a statuette as herein shown and described.
JOHN G. HICKS. JOHN MCGREER.
