Ellis's patented improvement "relates to a class of devices for turning sheets or leaves of music on pianos, or the like, being provided with long and spring-jointed fingers, so as to retain a better hold on the sheet or leaf in turning, and yet to permit the fingers to fall off when turned, so as not to obstruct the music."
