CHARLES S. LANDERS, OF NEW BRITAIN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO LANDERS, FRARY & CLARK, OF SAME PLACE.
DESIGN FOR AN INKSTAND.
Specification forming part of Design No. 11,281, dated July 8, 1879; application filed June 9, 1879.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Charles S. Landers, of New Britain, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented a new Design for Inkstands; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing and the letters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawing constitutes part of this specification, and represents a perspective view.
This invention relates to a design for the ink-fount for that class of inkstands in which the fount ishnngupon pivots, so as to be turned upward and backward to bring the mouth against a disk to serve as a cover, or be turned downward to present the open mouth for use, and commonly known as "revolving inkstands."
The design consists in the shape of the fount, as shown in the accompanying illustration, and hereinafter described.
The body of the fount represents a dog's head, the pivoted points a being in the cheeks, and so as to present the head in its natural position when the fount is in its closed position. On the forehead the funnel-shaped mouthpiece A is arranged, expanding toward the rear, all as shown in the accompanying illustration.
The frame in which the head is pivoted may be of any desirable form, immaterial to this design.
The design for revolving inkstands, consisting in a fount representing a dog's head, with the funnel-shaped mouth on the forehead expanding toward the rear, as shown in the accompanying illustration.
