GARMENT-"W EIGHT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 13,1914.

Application filed July 11, 1912. Serial No. 708,897.

To all 107mm it may concern Be it known that I, MARY E. RoAnKn, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State. of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in GarmentlVeights; and 1 do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to improvements in garment weights.

One object of the invention is to provide a weight of this character having means for covering and attaching the weight to the garment whereby the weight will be securely held in position without danger of tearing the goods and which will prevent the weights from wearing or leaving an impres sion in the goods.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, and the combination and arrangement of parts as will be more fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a plan view of my improved weight; Fig. 2 is a vertical cross sectional view of the same; Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the metal. parts of the weight before being covered; Fig. 4- is a cross sectional view of a modified form of the weight; if i g. 5 is a perspective view of the metal parts of the weight shown in Fig. 4.

Referring more particularly to the first three figures of the drawing, 1 denotes the body of the weight, said body being pref- .rably formed of lead. The body 1 is preferably in the form of a circular disk or may be of any suitable shape. Embedded in the body 1 of the weight and projecting radially from the edges thereof is a sheet metal plate The plate 2 projects from the center of the edge of the disk or plate 1., or in other words, the metal forming the disk is the same thickness on both sides of the plate. The plate 9. is provided to form a. support for protecting sheets 3 of felt or other suitable material. which are engaged with the oposite sides of the projecting parts of the plate and have therein centrally disposed apertures which receive the disk or body 1 of the weight. The felt sheets 3 are of such thickness that they will project slightly beyond the sides of the body 1 of the weight and thus prevent said body from coming into direct engagement with the goods forming the garment.

Secured to the opposite sides of the body of the weight are inner linings 4 of leather or other suitable material, said linings being preferably stamped or cutout to fit the body of the weight and to fill the spaces formed by the apertures in the felt sheets with which the opposite sides of the body 1 are engaged. After the parts have been thus arranged they are covered by a lining or covering 5 of any suitable fabric, said lining being formed in sheets the inner one of which lies flat against the inner side of the parts forming the weight, while the outer part of the lining is drawn around the edges of the body and stitched to the inner part as shown.

By constructing and arranging the parts of the weight as herein shown and described it will be seen that the inner side or part of the same attached to the goods will be perfectly flat while the thickness of the weight will project inwardly toward the lining of the garment or toward the body of the person. In constructing the weight in the manner described it will be seen that because of the greatly increased supporting surface the weight may be sewed all or part way around to the goods and the danger of the weight becoming disconnected from or tearing the goods will be obviated.

In Figs. 4 and 5 of the drawing is shown a slightly modified form of the weight wherein the body 6 is pressed or stamped to form a metal disk having on its inner edge and near or flush with one side thereof a radially projecting flange 7 In this form of the weight the offset or projecting body of the same is covered by a felt sheet 8 having therein a recess 9 corresponding in shape to and adapted to receive the projecting portion of the body of the weight, said felt sheet being somewhat thicker than the projecting portion of the weight body so that a thin layer of the felt is disposed over the outer surface of the body, while the inner side of the felt sheet engages the flange 7 as shown. The opposite or flat side of the weight is covered by a lining 10 which may be a thin sheet of felt or any other suitable material and which corresponds in size to the felt sheet 8-which projects beyond the edges of the flange 7 for a short distance as shown. The projecting edges of the inner lining 10 Wearing or forming an imprint in the goods of which the garments are formed and also obviating the discomfort occasioned by the Weights striking the body or limbs of the wearer as occurs in the usual form of garment Weights.

From the foregoin description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the construction and operation of the invention will be readily understood Without requiring a more extended explanation.

Various changes in the form, proportion and tie minor details of construction may be resorted to Without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention as claimed.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim is;

l. A device of the character set forth comprising a disk shaped Weight having a t thick central portion and a radially projectl ing thin flange surrounding the thick central portion a thick flexible filler of circular shape and of a greater diameter than the flange on the Weight, said filler being recessed on one side to receive the thickened central portion of the Weight and a fabric covering to retain the Weight in position in the filler.

2. A device of the character set forth comprising a circular Weight having flat side faces, a thin annular plate of greater diameter than the Weight, the latter being molded in the central opening in the antliick fillers of flexible material arranged on opposite sides of the flange and plate, said fillers being of circular shape and greater in diameter than the plate, their opposing inner faces being formed With centrally arranged circular recesses to receive the Weight and a fabric covering to retain the Weight and plate Within the fillers.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in Witnesses.
