Box Has a Pat Number 2,893,149 Dated July 7, 1959. July 7, 1959 Filed Sept. 1958 United States Patent ARTIFICIAL TREE Clarence D. Reece and Nathan Paul, Chicago, 111., as.
Signors, by mesne assignments, to Modern Coatings, Inc. A corporation of Illinois Application September 29, 1958, Serial No. 41-15 This invention relates generally to artificial trees and more particularly, relates to an artificial tree having an exceptionally full and uniform conical appearance achieved by assembled parts capable of being mass produced by relatively high speed and low cost techniques. The invention is further characterized by the form, size and arrangement of the parts thereof which enables the artificial tree to be readily and easily assembled and collapsed by anyone, including young children.Heretofore, artificial trees of the general character herein concerned have been widely used for decorative and display purposes both in the home and in the merchandising fields, but without complete satisfaction. Many of such artificial trees were made of highly combustible materials which made their use a matter of substantial risk and requiring substantial caution and attendance. Other of such prior art structures were formed of components which required considerable care and skill to fabricate and assemble. Also, such trees were so constructed as to be incapable of re-use either because they could not be collapsed and stored conveniently or the components thereof were not sufiiciently durable.
In addition, such prior trees have been relatively expensive because of the high cost of manufacture and assembly thereof by reason of the more complicated structure of the trunk and branch components thereof and the means employed for retaining said components in assembly. Although not specifically limited thereto, the invention herein is specially useful in the fabrication of an artificial tree simulating the configuration of the familiar evergreen tree or conifer universally used as a Christmas tree. Such trees have a generally conical configuration with the apex at the top. Efforts to faithfully reproduce this configuration in an artificial tree have been less than satisfactory for several reasons. Because of the tapered configuration of such a tree, the branch components heretofore employed have been of unequal length with the shorter branches arranged generally at the top of the structure.
This has increased the cost of manufacture by reason of the multiple-length branches required, especially since trees of different heights required proportionally different branch lengths. In order to obtain the desired configuration, the branches had to be assembled to the trunk in proper sequence related to their lengths thereby requiring extensive time and care with attendant increased labor costs.
Such trees however have been lacking in desirable fullness and density of foliage and the uniform conical configuration associated with the more perfectly formed natural evergreen or conifer. In recent years, colored Christmas trees, such as flocked trees, have been very popular because of the startling and beautiful effects which can be achieved therewith. Such flockedtrees are not safe because of their inflammable nature and are considerably inconvenient because the flocking drops off readily and thereafter is tracked over the surrounding areas and carpeting. Are very expensive and usually not re-usable.It is therefore a primary object of this invention to a provide an artificial tree of the character described which by reason of its advantageous construction substantially eliminates the disadvantages hereinabove enumerated. Another important object of the invention is to provide an artificial tree of the character described which is comprised of a trunk component and branch components of substantially equal length, said trunk component having a predetermined arrangement of sockets along the length thereof for receiving the branch components therein, the assembled tree being characterized by a degree of uniformity of conical configuration and fullness and density of foliage heretofore incapable of being achieved by employing prior art principles and techniques. Another object of the invention is to provide an artificial tree of the character described in which said trunk has the sockets therein arranged in a predetermined group sequence from one end to the other thereof, each group having the sockets thereof arranged with their longitudinal axes equi-angular relative to the longitudinal axis of the trunk, said groups extending along the length of the trunk in a predetermined spaced arrangement in which the distance between adjacent groups along the axis of the trunk and the angle of inclination of the sockets of adjacent groups relative the axis of the trunk vary in accordance with said arrangement. Another object of the invention is to provide an artificial tree of the character described in which the branch component is comprised of a rigid rod and a foliage component wrapped from end to end of said rod, said foliage component comprising a strip of extremely flexible thin metallic foil having a continuous, narrow imperforate segment contiguous one edge of the strip and a plurality of sliver-like segments or fillets of equal width integral with said imperforate segment and protruding angularly outwardly of the rod in the completed condition of the branch.
