Born's patent "consists in producing the jaws of frames for carpet-bags, valises, and other similar articles by gluing a number of thin layers of wood on top of each other, each layer being bent to the desired form over a suitable mold, until the desired thickness is obtained, in such a manner that strong, durable and cheap frames of wood can be produced, and the difficulties heretofore experienced in the manufacture of wooden frames for carpet-bags and other similar articles are obviated." (Patent Number 56,168)
