Baron secures "the handle of a tin cup or other vessel to the cup by cutting the handle-blank in such manner that its top end has a projection and a shoulder left upon either side thereof, said projection being curled over the bead of the cup-brim, while its shoulders bear against the body of the cup beneath said bead. The connections thus made are soldered, and the whole forms a secure joining. The lower end of the handle is secured by rivet, or in any preferred manner." (Patent Number 190,537)
