DESIGN FOR GLASSWARE.
Specification formingpart ofDesign No. 7,948, dated December 22,1874; application file d December 1G, 1874.-
[Tcrm of Patent 3% years] To all whom it may concern:
De it known that I, JOHN BRYCE, of Iittsburg, in the county of Allegheny and State ot' Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvements in Designs for Glassware, of which the following is a specification:
The nature of my improved design for ornamenting glassware, such as bowls, turccns, dishes, plates, saucers, and other similar articles designed for table and other purposes, is fully represented in the accompanying drawnigs.
A D represent a series ot' arcs struck alternately in opposite directions from springing points ar 1anged at unit'orm distances in a circle around the bottom or body ot' the dish or vessel, the converging arcs meeting each other at theirI terminations, the whole forming a series of double equilateral arches, U I), around the under surface or body of the dish. The arcs are i'orlned ot' parallel raised beads, east, sta1nped,or otherwise produced, the crowns ot' the arches U D being formed at thc junctures ot' the arcs A D, and the crowns oi' the arches D at the intersections ot' the arcs Il. These lines, in crossing each other at their intersections, forni polygonal or square figures (l. The spaces under the arches D D are ornamentcd by fan-shaped figures E E, and the spaces between the upper parts of the arches (J G by similar figures, F F. These spaces are formed by round or angular raised beads, crossing each other at proper angles. Under the upper parts of the arches C U are formed a series of square or diamond-shaped ornaments, alternately plain or beaded, as shown. The whole design, as above described, is formed upon the glass in raised figures or ribs by casting, cutting, blowing, or pressing, in the ordinary manner, Well known to Workers in glass. Around the center of thev dish or other article, on the underside, is a raised angular rib, Ii, serving as an ornamental border for the center piece L, and also as a base for the dish to rest upon. The center piece L consists of a series of raised lancet-shaped ribs radiating from the central point of the annular rib K, and extending outward to the same. At the edge or periphery of the dish is a rounded angular or other shaped bead, M, forming an ornamental border for the dish, which serves additionally to increase its strength.
My improved dcsign is intended particularly for ornanlenting articles ot' glassware t'or table use, such as bowls, turcens, dishes, plates, saucers, salt-cellars, and other similar articles, adding highly to thc beauty and finish of the same.
That I claim is- 1. The design for an article of glassware having the arcs A B struck alternately in 0pposite directions from a series of springing points formed at nnit'orln distances in a circle around the body of the article, the Whole forming a series of double equilateral arches, substantially as shown ami described.
2. The design for fan-shaped iigures under the arches l), and between the arches Cf, as shown and described.
3. The design for alternate beaded and plain square or diamond-shapcd tigures arranged within the space between the upper parts of the arcs C and the arcs D, as shown and described.
4. The design for the center piece, formed of radiating laneet-shaped projections within the annular bead K, as shown and described.
5. Ihc design for the double arches, fanshaped and alternate square and beaded ornaments, and radiating center piece, and projecting border, as shown and described.
6. The design for the rounded or angularshaped ribs, forming, at their crossing, the square or polygonalshaped figures in the spaces under the crown ot' the arches C C, as shown and described.
7. The design for the square or polygonalshaped figures at the intersections of the arcs A B, as shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand.
