    HENRY H. HAYDEN, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO HOLMES, BOOTH, AND HAYDENS, OF WATERBURY, CONNECTICUT.
    Design No. 3,292, dated December 15, 1868.

    DESIGN FOR A FORK OR SPOON-HANDLE.

    To all whom it may concern:
    Be it known that I, Henry H. Hayden, of the city and State of New York, have invented and made a certain new and original Design for Ornamenting the Surface of the Handles of Forks or Spoons; and I do hereby declare the following to be a correct description of the said design, reference being had to the annexed photographic views, representing, in
    Figure 1, the design upon the handle of a spoon, and in
    Figure 2, the design upon the handle of a fork.
    The design of the ornamentation for the bandies of forks, spoons, or similar articles of table-furniture, consists in the peculiar shape and configuration of the ornamental bead-work that runs around near the edge of the handle.
    This ornamental bead-work consists of a groove at 1, near the edge of the' handle, then a rounded bead at 2, merging into a shallow broad concave groove, 3, rising to a low rib at 4, that terminates at right angles, or nearly so, to the surface of the handle at 5.
    This character of broad shallow ornamental bead-work or moulding follows the contour of the outline of the handle, and has a very neat and massive ornamental appearance.
    The section, fig. 3, represents the shape of this ornamental bead or moulding.
    What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, isó
    The design of the ornamental bead-work or moulding described and represented.
    In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my signature, this day of November, A. D. 1868.
