DESIGN FOR A TOP MOUNT FOR METAL BEDSTEADS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 32,292, dated February 27, 1900. Application filed December 23, 1899. Serial No. 741,476. Term of patent 7 years.
To all whom it may concerm Be it known that I, ALEXANDER S. PUTNAM, a citizen of the United States, residing at Worcester, in the county of Worcester and State of Massachusetts, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Top Mounts for Metal Bedsteads, of which the fol- .lowing,together with the accompan yingdrawings, is a specification.
The mount or article to which my present design is applied is the top member or upper terminal portion employed on the corner standards or posts of meta] bedsteads and in which the end of the top rod of the headframe is sometimes supported.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is aside view of a top mount for metal bedsteads, showing my new design. Fig. 2 is a front view of the same, and Fig. 3 is a top plan View.
The leading or material features of my design consist in the configuration or shape of the article and its ornamentation in the form of a swan-neck and scroll-head, and in which the lower neck portion 2 rises in a backward curve, merging at its upper portion 3 into an upward and forward curvature, the top carried forward and downward and rolling inward at 4 in the manner of a volute scroll, having a center circle or eye 5 over or in a plane approximately coinciding with a continuation of the axial line of the base end 6. An arm from the under roll of the scroll-head extends downward toward the breast of the lower curve of the neck. The configuration for a top mount representing a swan-necked volute scroll with its center eye in line with and over the axis of its base is a prime special feature of my design.
The lower and rear part of the design represents a plain cylindrical neck 1, while the forward part is formed and ornamented to represent acanthus-leaf scrollwork 7, enveloping the body and curling about the eye, as at 8. Aspray l0oftheleaf ornamentbranchcs out from the main stem and reaches downward to the curve of the neck.
At the junction of the plain surface and leafwork there is formed a ring-molding or collar ornament 22, comprising circular headlike lines 13 with intermediate leaf-fret 14. This collar ornament is approximately at the top of the scroll-head and over the scroll-eye, the ornamental leat'work standing out from the side of the collar beading-lines.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The design for a top mount for metal bed- .steads, substantially as herein shown and described.
Witness my hand this 21st day of December, 1899.
ALEXANDER S. PUTNAM.
