DESIGN FOR A FONT OF TYPE ORNAMENTS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 35,808, dated March 11, 1902. Application filed January 25, 1902. Serial No. 91,288. Term of patent 14 years.
To aZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, BERNE NADALL, a citizen of the United States,residing at Kin gstonupon-Thames, in the county of Surrey, England, have invented and produced a new and originalDesign fora Font of Type Ornaments, of which the following is a specification.
My design is clearly shown in the accompanying typographical impression, the types composing the font being numbered 1 and 2.
The main feature of the design shown by each of the types is a conventional illustration of a blossom and a relatively long narrow leaf, the stems of said blossom and leaf crossing each other and being connected at one end.
The blossom-like portion of the design consists of three members or petals and is arranged at one end of a relatively fine clear line representing the stem of the flower. The other end of the said stem-line is joined bya somewhat-similar line representing the leafstem. This line representing the leaf-stem extends from its junction with the blossomstem toward the blossom-like portion of the design, being curved so as to providea space between itself and the line representing the stem of the blossom, and after crossing the line representing the blossom-stem it is connected with a relatively heavy line having the appearance of a narrow elongated leaf. From the connected ends of the lines representing the blossom and leaf stems a short wavy line extends toward the leaf-like portion of the design.
The distance from the free end of the leaflike portion of the design to the ends of the connected stem-lines is equal to the distance from the outer point of one petal or member of the blossom-like portion of the design to the corresponding point of the next petal or member, so that the whole design has the gen eral form of a rectangle.
The types composing the font differ in that in the one numbered 1 the line representing the blossom-stem is curved or bowed to the left,and the blossom-like portion of the design is at the right-hand side thereof, while in the one numbered 2 the relative positions of the parts of the design are the same; but the design as a whole is reversed, the blossom-like portion being at the left-hand side of the design and the stem thereof curving toward the right.
The several type ornaments herein described are of uniform design and are adapted to be grouped in various ways to form borders and othercomposite typographic 0rnaments.
Having thus described myinvention,what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The design for a font of type ornaments, substantially as herein shown and described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
