, For‘ illustrative purposes the invention will be
10 shown and described as applied to a backing for
a hand mirror of one particular shape. It will be
understood, however, that the shape of the hand

When such devices are made of metal turned
up at the'edge and then turned in the expense
and di?iculty of manufacture are enhanced by the
factthat the turning and straining of the metal
weakens'it and may cause cracks or openings at
20the turned corners. Such a defect destroys the
‘whole frame which may not be used. A purpose

plied. Figs. 4, 5, '7, 8, and 9 are plan views of
portions of the channel members. Fig. 5 is a
plan view of the stamped back member and Fig. 6
is a plan view of the cover for the handle exten
sion. The back member may be stamped in any
suitable shape. In the drawing a back member
I5 is illustrated having a round head portion from 10
which extends a straight sided handle. This may
be made plain or may be provided with an orna
mental raised groove I6 which may be any de
sired shape and location, being illustrated paral
lel to the periphery of the stamped metal. A 15
piece of channel metal is curved to form a mar
ginal member ll for the head or circular portion
of the back plate I5. Pieces of channel metal 58
and I9 are cut to ?t the straight sides of the han
dle portion 20 of the back plate 15. A smaller 20
short channel member 2| is cut to ?t the end of
