This invention relates generally to new and useful improvements in casket hardware and has particular reference to casket handles. Among the objects of my invention is to pro 5 vide casket handles embodying novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of the parts and members thereof including rigid and simplified structural elements affording the production of such handles at a comparatively l0 reduced cost of manufacture and facilitating the assembly and installation thereof. It is also an object of the invention to provide a novel construction in the ornamental brackets of a casket handle which shall aiford adequate l5 structural rigidity and each of which brackets shall include an outwardly disposed integral por tion adapted to constitute a supporting abutment arranged to receive and rigidly support an orna mental handle bar. 20 Another object of the invention resides in the construction `of a casket handle embodying novel structural features in the ornamental brackets therefor, which include a bar-supporting portion formed integrally with and disposed outwardly 25 and downwardly from the base plate thereof; the construction of such bar-supporting portion or extension being adapted to receive means for se curing the handle bar thereto and additional means for rigidly securing the bracket to the 30 casket Wall; said brackets and bar-supporting portions being adapted to structurally resist the upward and outward movement of the han dle bar during the carrying of the casket. Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive, the metallic casket I5, partly shown in Fig. l, has shown attached there- '5 on a casket handle embodying features of my improved combination and structural design and including a pair of brackets I6 having secured thereto a handle bar I8. . It may be stated that the invention is not lim- l0 ite'd to a handle o1' any particular-ornamental or artistic design since the construction or struc tural features of the invention can readily be applied by those skilled in the art to handles of Various other artistic designs, nor do I wish to be L15 understood as limiting the invention to handles of metallic caskets as obviously the handles em bodying my invention may readily be applied to caskets of Wood or other materials. In the handle design shown in Figs. 1 to 6, in- 20 elusive, the bracket I6 consists of an elongated laterally extending shell I6A having an ornate exterior face I 6B and a rear marginal plane aligned narrow face ISC deñning the general con figuration of the shell and constituting a plane- 25 aligned base which is adapted to be attached to the surface of a casket wall I5A by means of bolts I9 which extend through the end portions of the shell IGA, through the wall ISA and a re inforcing bar I'I on the inner face of the Wall ISA. 30 In order to support the handle bar I8 the de sired spaced distance from the side of the casket wall, the bracket I6 is formed with an outwardly In the drawing: Fig. 1_is a side elevation of a portion of a cas inforcing bar I l. in the following speciiications and particularly pointed out in the appended claims. . Fig. 2 is an enlarged rear View of one of the handle brackets showing an end portion of a han The outwardly disposed extension ISD is formed 40 with a downwardly disposed integral end portion ,IGF to thereby constitute a supporting abutment for the handle bar I8 which is positioned to abut dle bar attached thereto; Fig. 3 is a vertical-section through a portion the rear face of the end portion IBF and the lower face of a substantially lateral wall portion 45 ,40 ket showing a casket handle embodying my in vention; Y . of a casket Wall showing an end view of the cas IGG of the extension ISD. ket handle bar; construction or conñguration of such extension IBD could be varied to carry out its purpose or function which is primarily that of a supporting Fig. 4 is a vertical section taken on line 4_4 `»of Fig. 2; 50 bracket; Fig. 7A is a yvertical cross-section taken on line 'IA-'IA of Fig. 7. In the embodiment of my invention shown in disposed integral extension> ISD which is pref erably of hollow formation and provided with 35 an opening IEE in its outer end adapted to're ceive a securing bolt 20 extending through such hollow extension IBD, the casket Wall I5A and re The invention which is shown in preferred em 35 bodiment in the attached drawing, is- described 45 (Cl. 16-111) Fig. 5 is a vertical section taken on line 5_5 of Fig. 2; Fig. 6 is a horizontal section through one end of the handle bar taken on line 6-6 of Fig. 3; Fig. 7 is a, diagrammatic illustration of a han 55 dle 4supported on a pair of supports on a single The speciñc design, abutment adapted to support the handle bar I8 50 and to resist the tendency of any upward and outward movement of the handle bar relatively to the casket or its supporting bracket I6. Ob viously, if the handle bar I8 be of circular or other cross-section, the extension IBD could be 55 2 2,133,547 shaped to conform to a generally outwardly and downwardly curved body having an inner side or face suitably curved to receive the bar I8 of cir cular or other cross-section and thus resist any generally outward or upward directional pull on the handle bar when the casket is carried there by. The particular cross-section shown in Fig. 4 is preferably formed as shown to accommodate a bar of rectangular or square cross-section, and 10 in such design the depending end portion IGF monly employed between the brackets and the handle bars of the usual casket handles. I claim: 1. A casket handle comprising a plurality of spaced unitary brackets; a removably mounted 5 handle bar secured to and connecting said brack ets; each of said brackets comprising a plate portion having a front face and plane-aligned face formations on the rear face thereof adapted to engage the wall of the casket, an extension 10 is substantially disposed relatively right-angular formed integrally with said plate portion, said ly to the generally outwardly projected extension ISD. The outwardly extended portion IBD of the extension being disposed to extend forwardly and 15 bracket is formed with a defining rear marginal narrow face IGH plane-aligned with and merging into the marginal face |60. Upon tightening of the bolts I9 and 20 the bracket I6 will be securely fastened with its marginal face formations I6C 20 and IGH to the side of the casket Wall. The particular design of handle lbar I8 shown for illustrative purposes consists of a tubular shell I8A which is adapted to receive end caps or closures I8B also of tubular shell form. A rein forcing plug 2| of wood is fitted into the closure IBB `to extend to the place of the support of the handle bar on the bracket I6 and the plug 2l is adapted to receive the threaded end of the screw 22 which is projected through an opening 30 in the depending extension IGF and through the shell portions |8A`and I8B to thus retain the handle bar I8 against displacement from the bracket by its own weight or any accidentally applied pressure in the normal handling of the casket. In the modiñcation shown in Fig. '7 the bracket I6 is provided with a pair of spaced integral ex tensions ISD adapted to support the handle bar I8. It will be noted that the designs and construc tions presented herein obviate the use of all fragile and costly hinges which are now com downwardly of said front face and having a rear wardly extending wall portion in plane-align ment with said plate face formations, means for 15 securing the plate portion to the casket wall, a bolt extending through the extension into secur» ing engagement with the casket wall; said han dle bar being mounted rearwardly of the down wardly extending portions of said extensions and 20 below the forwardly extending portions thereof; and means for securing the handle bar to each of said bracket extensions. 2. A casket handle comprising a plurality of spaced unitary brackets; a removably mounted handle bar secured to and connecting said brack ets; each of said brackets comprising a plate por tion having a front face and plane-aligned face formations on the rear face thereof adapted to engage the wall of the casket, an extension formed integrally with said plate portion, said extension being disposed to extend forwardly and downwardly of said front face and having a rear wardly extending wall portion in plane-align ment with said plate face formations, means for securing the plate portion to the casket wall, said handle bar being mounted rearwardly of the downwardly extending portions of said extensions and below the forwardly extending portions thereof; and means for securing the handle bar 40 to each of said bracket extensions. ` RAYMOND LARSON.
