LOCKET.
icense.
Application filed December 6, 1913.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Mean E. Lawrence, a citizen of the United States, residing at. hllaiden Rock, in the county of Pierce and State of lVisconsin, have invented certain new and ILEfHl In'iprovements in Lockets, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the acwnuoanying drawings. i
This invention relates tocertain improvements in lockets and the object of the invention is to provide a device of this general novel and improved character wherein the device is capable of a plurality of usages.
The invention consists in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts whereby cer' tain important advantages are attained and the device is rendered simpler, less expensive and otherwise more convenient and advantageous for use, all as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
The novel features of the invention will be carefully defined in the appended claim.
In order that my invention may be the better understood, I will now proceed to describe the same with reference to the accompanying drawings, wherein-- Figure 1 is a view in elevation and partly in section of a locket constructed in accordance with an embodiment of my invention. the same being shown partly in open position with an adjustment of. a further part being indicated. by dotted lines; Fig. 2 is a view in end ele *ation of a device constructed in ac cordance with my invention in folded or compacted adjustment, the positions of certain of the parts being indicated by dotted lines; Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 3-8 of Fig. 2; Fig. 1 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 44 of Fig. 3: Fig. 5 is a view partly in plan and partly in section of a part comprised in my invention, as herein disclosed; Fig. 6 is an en larged fragmentary view in side elevation, illustrating a certain feature of the invention, as herein contained; and Fig. 7 is a view somewhat similar to Fig. 41-, but taken through the opposed marginal portion.
As disclosed in the accompanying drawings. 1 denotes an annular member of any predetermined dimensions and produced from any suitable material having produced therein an opening 2 adapted to be closed by the segmental member 3 pivotally secured adjacent one of its ends, as at 4., to
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented J une 16, 1914. Serial No. 805,140.
the member 1, while its opposite extremity is provided with the projecting spring member 5 which is adapted to frictionally engage the under surface of the adjacent portion of the member 1 whereby it will beobserved that such member 3 will be maintained normally in closed position. Suitably affixed to the inner surface of the segmental member 3, as herein disclosed, is a microscopic lens 6 having its peripheral portion contained within a metallic binding 7, whereby it will be readily observed that a soldered joint or other connection may be readily and conveniently had with the segmental member o. In order that no obstruction may be offered to the inner peripheral portion of the microscopic lens 6, I have the under surface of the imperforate portion of the member 1 provided with the annular groove or channel 8, as is particularly shown in Figs. 3 and 4.
I-Iingedly secured to the member 1 at any predetermined points and at opposite sides thereof are the leaves or covers 9 and 10 adapted to overlie the annular member 1 and provided with any conventional means, as indicated at 11, adapted to coact with the annular member 1 for holding the same in closed relation, such members being provided with the usual nail holds, as indicated at 12. The side faces of the annular member 1 are each provided with the annular bead 14 which is adapted to be snugly accommodated within an annular groove or channel 15 produced in the adjacent faces of the leaves or covers 9 and 10, as is particularly shown in Fig. 4, and whereby it will be perceived that the interior of my improved locket is dust proof when the various parts are adjusted into the positions as indicated in Fig. 2.
The leaf or cover 9 is provided with the inwardly directed flange 16 affording a chamber in which is adapted to be inserted a suitable picture 17 or the like and over which is adapted to be positioned the trans parent member 18 preferably of glass and these elements 17 and 18 are operatively maintained within the chamber afforded by such flange 16 through the medium of the ring like member 19 adapted to be sprung within the flange 16 and provided with the inwardly directed flange 20 adapted to overlie the transparent member 18, whereby it will be seen that both of such members 17 and 18 will be maintained in operative position. The second leaf or cover is adapted to be provided with a reflecting member 21,
such as a looking glass, and in order to accommodate such member 21 the inner face of the leaf or cover 10 is reduced, as at 22, to accommodate such member 21, which mem ber is maintained in operative position by any conventional means but preferably by the use of a suitable binder. In order that my improved locket may be employed as a pendant, I have suitably secured to the annular member 1, as at 23, the ring 24 which may be engaged by any suitable flexible member, such as a chain or the like. In order that the microscopic lens may be withdrawn from within the annular member 1, I find it of advantage to have the rearmost portion of the member 5 projected exteriorly of the segmental member 3, whereby a convenient means is afforded for withdrawing the microscopic member, such portion 25 being adapted, as herein disclosed, to be engaged by a finger-nail.
From the foregoing description, it is thought to be obvious that a locket construct ed in accordance with my invention is of an extremely simple and comparatively inexpensive nature and is particularly well adapted for use by reason of the convenience and facility with which it may be applied and of the several usages to which it may be put and it will also be obvious that my invention is susceptible of some change and modification without material departure from the principles and spirit thereof and for this reason I do not Wish to be understood as limiting myself to the precise arrangement and formation of the several parts herein shown in carrying out my invention in practice.
I claim:
A device of the character described comprising an annular member having an opening therein, a segmental member within said opening and adapted to close the same, said member having one extremity pivotally supported within said opening, a spring member carried by the opposite extremity of the segmental member and having one end portion adapted to fixedly engage the under surface of the adjacent portion of the annular mem her, while the opposite extremity of said spring member projects outwardly to afford a manipulating means, an element carried by said segmental member and normally positioned within the annular member, and closure members hingedly supported by the annular member.
In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
