ART OF CASKET‘ ORNAMENTATION
Raymond Larson, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Gen
tral Metallic Gasket (10., Chicago, 11]., a cor
poration of Illinois
Application April 30, 1936, Serial No. 77,187
12 Claims.
This invention relates generally to the art of
casket ornamentation and has particular refer
ence to certain new and useful improvements re
lating to the combination of the ornamental ele
ments therefor and the casket-carrying handles.
Generally stated, the principal object of my
invention is directed to certain novel features of
construction in ornamental plates and corners
which ornate elements are adapted to be secured
to the side and end panels of the burial con
tainer and which novel construction in associa
tion with the handle elements affords a wide
range of various combinations in the arrange
ment or relative mounting of such plates, cor
ners and handles to produce different artistic ef
fects in design with a minimum number of stand
ard parts.
An object of my invention resides in the con
struction of ornate casket plates and corners hav
ing integrally formed recesses constituting sup
ports for the casket-carrying handles preferably
cooperating with ornate caps and tightening
members adapted to secure the plates, corners,
handles and caps, in different combinations, to
the casket.
Another object of my invention resides in the
construction of the ornate corner elements with
suitable ornamentation simulating a handle as
extending around such corner element or between
the recessed portions of the corner element to
thereby produce an e?ect of the continuity of the
handle as if the casket handle extended around
V or through portions of the corner elements.
With the above and other objects in view, my
invention consists in the novel construction, com
bination and arrangement of the parts and mem
bers shown in illustrative examples in the at
tached drawings, described in the following speci
of Fig. 4 and showing details of construction em
bodying my invention; and
Figs. 6 to 13 inclusive show diagrammatically
several of the Various combinations and arrange
ments which are afforded by my invention.

While the invention is shown in the drawings
adapted to a metallic casket, it is obvious that the
invention may be readily applied to caskets of
other materials, such as wood or concrete, without
departing from the spirit of my invention as de
?ned in the appended claims wherein I intend to
claim my invention as broadly as the state of the
art permits.
The particular or speci?c designs incorporated
in the ornamentation of the several plates and
corners is not a part of the invention herein con
templated as it is obvious that the designs and
ornamentation may be varied and that my in
vention may be adapted to such varied or different designs.
20
In the illustrative adaptation of my invention
shown in Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive, the casket gen
erally indicated by numeral l5 includes the side
walls MA and end walls l5B which constitute wall
panels to which are attached the ornamental
handle-supporting plates 16 and corners H.
The ornamental plates 16, as shown in Figs. 1,
2 and 3, each constitute a hollow or shell-like
metallic casting, the marginal rim of the rear
side being ?attened for attachment to the wall 30
panels as by bolts 18. Each plate It is provided,
in its front face, with a horizontal passage ISA
preferably of a cross-sectional con?guration suit
ed to the cross-section of the handle 19 which ex
tends therethrough.
Obviously, the handle l9 may be made of any
suitable material or design or construction. I
have preferred to illustrate the handle is as made
?cation and particularly pointed out in the ap
of comparatively lightweight crimped metal hav
pended claims.

secured to the casket corner, as by bolts 2! . Each 45
corner IT is provided, in its front face portion, ‘
with recesses HA adapted to receive the ends of
the casket side and end handles l9, and the re
cesses HA are preferably open on the rear side of
the corner piece 11 to facilitate installation there

side face of the casket wall for convenient han
dling of the casket and the handle I9 is rigidly
supported on such ornamental plates and corners,
and, as shown in Fig. 1, constitutes a substan
tially continuous handle extending around the
casket.
,
It will be noted that the effect of the continuity
of the handle is carried out in the design of the
corner elements by ornamentation simulating a
10 handle as extending around such corner elements
or between the portions recessed for the handle
and this is an important feature of my invention.
The plates l6 and corners II, as well as the
handles l9, are preferably drilled to receive Wood
16 screws 20 which rigidly secure the handles to
such ornamental elements.
In the adaptation of my invention illustrated
in Figs. 4 and 5, the casket l5‘is shown provided
with cast metallic ornamental corners 22'and or
20 namental plates 23 and 23’ connected by the side
and-'end‘handles IS.
The ornamental plates 23 and 23’ are of like
design, matched to form right-hand and left
hand' pieces, so that when mounted as shown
in Fig. 4 the two pieces form a design which is
symmetrical about its center line.
The plates 23 and 23' are provided with spaced
openings to receive bolts 24 for their securement
to the casket walls.
30
At’their handle-attaching ends, the plates 23
and 23’ are provided with preferably arcuate
recesses 23A formed by the plate wall portion 233
which is cast in spaced relation from the inte
gral rear wall portion 23°.
The recesses 23A are
preferably formed of a cross-sectional con?gura
tion‘ to suit the cross-sectional form of the han
dle H! which rests therein. A separate cap 25
of suitable design is preferably provided and
mounted on the handle over the recessed por
40 tion 23A and a securing bolt 26, extending through
the cap 25, handle l9, plate walls 233, 23° and
casket wall securely holds these elements in
place;
The ornamental corners 22, as shown in Figs.
45 4 and 5, each consist of a hollow or shell-like
metallic casting having a substantially right
angularly formed rear wall 22A which is adapted
to engage the corner faces of the casket side and
end walls.
At the side ends of the angularly disposed front
faces, each corner ornament 22 is provided with
preferably arcuate recesses 22B formed or de
?ned by the integral wall portions 220 and 22D
and adapted to receive the ends of handles I 9.
55 The recesses 22B are preferably formed of a
cross-sectional con?guration to suit the cross
section‘ of the handle IS. A suitable cap 21 is
provided over the handle end and a securing
bolt 26 extending through the cap 21, handle l9,
60 wall portions 220 and 22A and through the cas
ket wall rigidly secures the handle and the cor
ner 22 to the casket wall.
Additional shorter bolts 28 are provided for
securing the corner 22 to the casket walls.
For purposes of continuity in design and sim
plicity of construction, I prefer to cast the cor
ner 22 with integral parts 22E and 22F simulat
ing, respectively, the handle 19 and cap 21.
I have shown in Figs. 6 to 9 inclusive some
70 of the interesting and novel combinations which
are afforded by Various arrangements and
mounting of the two ornamental units 22 and 23
and'the interconnecting handles H).
In Figs. 10 to 13 inclusive I show interesting
‘is and‘ novel combinations made possiblerwithathe
65
right-hand and left-hand patterns of the plate
unit 23 and handles I9.
From the above description and attached draw
ings, it will be readily apparent that there is
present in the disclosure made herein, a novel
art of casket ornamentation made possible by
the novel constructions in the relatively few or
nate elements which are adapted to be combined
in various artistic combinations with the han
dles to produce different designs in casket or 10
namentation.
The different designs shown in the illustra
tions in Figs. 6 to 9 inclusive, include a standard
handle combined with the two differently ar
ranged units 22 and 23. Only two standard cast 15
ings are required for the corner and plate ele
ments, since the right and left hand units 23 and
23’ are actually the same casting but being re
Versedly mounted relatively to each other.
In the several different combinations shown 20
in Figs. 10 to 13 inclusive, the standard handle
is combined with various mountings of the stand
ard plate 23.
It will also be noted that the different artistic»
effects in the designs may be produced by use
of the same design of unit plate mounted at the
corners of the casket and at the intermediate
sections of the side wall panels, as illustrated in
Figs. 10 to 13 inclusive, or a harmoniously
matched corner unit of different design than 80
that of the intermediate plates may be combined
with such plates as shown in Figs. 6 to 9 inclu
sive.
It is possible that the centrally mounted orna
mental plate shown in Fig. 4 could be cast in
one piece.
