TYLER CALHOUN, OF RIDGETOP, TENNESSEE;
DESIGN FOR A SPOON.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 34,399, dated April 23, 1901'.
Application filed March 18, 901' Serial No. 51,735. Term of patent '7 years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, TYLER CALHOUN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ridgetop, Robertson county, State of Tennessee, have invented and produced a certain new and original Design for a Spoon, of Which the following is a specification.
My design for a spoon is fully illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view thereof, and Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal section.
The essential feature of my design consists of the spoon having the hood shaped substantially as shown. The bowl is formed with a rounded bottom, from which the sides are gradually curved upwardly and terminate in Extending upwardly from the rear portion of the edge of the spoon is a hood or shield 2, which shield follows substantially the contour of the bowl, while the forward edge of the shield or hood is formed on a symmetrically-curved line 3, which merges gracefully into the upper edge 5 of the bowl at 4c, and, with said edge, thus constituting an oval opening to the bowl 1.
The handle 6 is in prolongation of the bowl at the rear, merging gradually into the bowl at 7, and extends in a reverse curve 8 a short distance from the bowl, thence in a straight portion which terminates in the broadened end 9, whose surface is slightly curved and whose edges are formed oncurved lines which are joined to a curved apex 10 at the tip end of the handle. The bowl and handle thus formed unite to produce a spoon of unique and graceful appearance and constitutes my design.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patcut, is
The design for a spoon, substantially as herein described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
