Reilly, North Attleboro, Mass., assignor ‘to Evans Case Company, North Attleboro, Mass, a corporation ‘of Massachusetts Application November 10, 1936, Serial No. 110,159 6 Claimsr (01. 113-116) 3 is a perspective view of the frame showing the In general the invention relates to the manu-v back plate and the channel members assembled facture of a frame or back or holder consisting in. ' its ?nal form of a sheet or plate having a turned up periphery the edge, of which is turned ‘in. 5 ‘ Such‘ frames’frequently are provided with simi larly constructed handles generally made integral therewith. Such frames may hold vmirrors, brushes or other devices. ' , 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 mirror or frame is not‘of the essence of the pres ent invention. 7 7 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 but before the closure for the handle has been ap 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 the handle portion 20. The endsof the members of, the present invention is to construct such a‘ ll, l8, l9 and 2| are mitered so as to form close frame of assembled metal parts associated in such tight joints where they meet.

To this end a sheet of more or less ?at metal may be stamped to the form and shape desired for the back of the l8, I9 and 2| are illustrated as separate pieces 25 but they might be made in a single piece of chan nel metal, the arms of the channel being cut or mitered at the proper points to allow proper form article.
