SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 27,703, dated September 28, 1897.
Application filed May 8, 1897. Serial No. 635,752. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern:
    Be it known that I, JACOB JACOBS, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings, and in the State of New York, have invented a certain new and original Design for Lenses for Illuminating-Gratings; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which—
    Figure 1 is a perspective view of a lens embodying my design, and Fig. 2 is a cross-section of the same.
    Letters of like name anti kind refer to like parts in each of the figures.
    The object of my invention is to provide a design for lenses for illuminating-gratings; and to this end said invention consists in the design for a lens, substantially as hereinafter specified.
    The leading feature of my design consists of the lens A, provided with prisms B and B, having waved or scalloped edges b and b.
    As shown in the drawings, the lens consists
of a plate A, having one face plane and on its other face a number of parallel ribs or prisms B and B, that are triangular in cross-section, one face of each rib being perpendicular to the plate and the other inclined. The latter is a plane surface, but the perpendicular face has a waved or scalloped formation from end to end that is produced by a series of concavities b and b.
    My lens has not only a unique appearance, but it has superior light-transmitting capacity.
    Having thus described my invention, what I claim is—
    The design for a lens, substantially as set forth.
    In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 7th day of May, 1897.
JACOB JACOBS.
