DISH-HOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 3d, 191%.

Application filed August 18, 1915. Serial No. 46,035.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that we, GARABED HAR- OUTUNIAN, a citizen of the United States, and SARKIS HAROUT'UNIAN, subject of Armenia, both residing at Chelsea, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented an Improvement in Dish-Holders, of which the following is a specification.

Our present invention relates broadly to new and useful improvements in holders for receptacles, and has particular reference to the provision of a detachable holder for plates and other shallow receptacles, having a relatively wide, fiat marginal portion.

One of the principal objects of our present invention is to provide a detachable holder of the character specified which is of simple construction and may, therefore, be cheaply manufactured, will be durable and efficient in service, and may be quickly at tached to or removed from the plate or other receptacle. 1

Another object of our invention is to construct a detachable holder, which is of ornamental design, and which is adjustable to adapt it to hold plates or like receptacles having marginal portions angles.

The above and incidental objects of a similar nature which will be hereinafter more specifically treated, are accomplished by such means as are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, described in the following specification, and then more particularly pointed out in the claims which are appended hereto, and form a part of this application.

With reference to the drawings wherein there has been illustrated the preferred and several embodiments of our invention Figure 1 is a top plan view of a plate illustrating our detachable holder apphed thereto. Fig. 2 is a section on l1ne 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1. .Fig. 4 is a detall view in section illustrating particularly by dotted lines the manner in which the slope or angle of the rim-portion of the holder may be adjusted to accommodate plates or other receptacles, the rim-portions of wh1ch extend at varying angles to the hor zontal. 5 is a top plan view illustrating the mod]- fied form of holder applied to a plate; and,

of varying Fig. 6 is a bottom plan View of the device.-

as shown in Fig. 5.

In Figs. 1, 2, and 3, the rim-portion of the holder designated as an entirety by the letter A, is shown as applied to a plate B, to form in effect an extension of the rimportion C thereof. At this point it is to be explained that while the detachableholder has been designed particularly for use in connection with plates, saucers, and the like, it may be employed in connection with receptacles of diflerent types as long as these receptacles are provided with marginal portions or rims of such nature that my detachable-holder may be properly secured thereto. The rim-portion A consists essentially of a body-ring 10, and a reticular band arranged thereon. The ring 10 is formed from drawn wire of medium gage, and relatively stifi, so that it will retain its shape during various adjustments of the band. The band is preferably formed from a single strand of drawn wire of relatively small gage, bent to produce a plurality of overlapping loops or convolutions 11, which define an annular band, as shown in Figs. 1 0r 2. These convolutions 11 are here shown as held against circumferential movement upon the ring 10 by means of a securing-wire 12, which is wound helically about the ring 10 in such manner as to secure the adjacent sides of the convolutions to the ring. This securingwire 12, while holding the convolutions on the ring 10, yet permit of a rocking movement thereof, see Fig. 4, wherein it will be seen that the convolutions are conjointly turned about the ring 10 as an axis, thereby to vary the pitch or slope of the band.

Thus the band may be adjusted to accommodate it to receptacles having rims arranged to extend at different angles with respect to the horizontal. Handles 13 are or may be applied to the body-ring 10 at diametrically opposite portions. As a means for detachably securing the rim-portion to a plate, we employ an extensible ring 1 1, and a plurality of contractile springs 15. The ring 1 1 is formed from a single strand of wire, bent to form an annular series of loops 16, the ends of the wire comprising the ring being twisted or otherwise secured together. The ring is adapted to be arranged on the bottom of the plate with its loops extended downward. The inner ends of the springs 15 are provided with loops or eyes 18, which engage said ring, and the outer ends of said springs are provided with'hoo-ks 19, which engage the convolutions 11 of the rim-portion, see Fig. 1. "Upon reference to Figs. 1 and 2, it will be apparent that the securing-ring 14: is apextended downward, act as supports forthe has plate and space the basal flange thereof abovea table or other support for it. One of the particular features of importance of this preferred form of the invention is the adjustability of the convolutions to vary the slope or pitch of the detachable rim portion, so that it may accommodate receptacles, the rims of which bear dilferent anglesto the horizontal. y

,In themodified form of our invention shown in Figs. 5 and 6, all of the features of construction of the preferred form are employed, and in addition thereto the inner and outer'edges of the annular reticular rim-portion have securedto them rings 22 f and 23. These rings 22 and 23 are or may beeach formed from single strands of relatively light gage wire, bent to form a series of loops quite similar to thesecuring ring 14. These rings are securedjby fine wires 24 and 25, respectively, to the convolutions of the rim-portion.

Thus the convolutions of the rim-p'ortionare maintained against We claim:. a e V 1 Adetachable-holder for plates and the relativ'e movement, and may not therefore be adjusted to vary the slope or pitch of the band. In applying this modified form of detachable rim to a plate, the inner ring 22'is 'disposed upon the upper face of the plate rim, as in Fig, 5. These rings 22 and 23 impart stability, and also adecorative appearance to the detachable-holder.

Adetachable-holder for plates and the 7 like, comprising a relatively stifi' body-ring 1 and 'an'annular band arranged thereon, its
