CASEFOR JEWELRY. APPLICATION FILED AERJ, 191s.
Patented Sept. 18, 1917.
"WE/V701? ATTORNEYS TIBURCE CATALA, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
casn r03 JEWELRY.
I Specification of Letters Patent. P t t d S pt 1 1 917;
Application filed April 3, 1916. Serial No. 88,2332. 1
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, TiBURon CATALA, a citizen of France, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Case for Jewelry, of which'the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to cases for ewelry and has particular reference to the provision of a case of thisna-ture adapted for both storage and display purposes.
Among the objects of the invention therefore, is to provide a case for rings or the like of such a nature or construction that the article of jewelry will occupy the mininnun amount of space when the case is closed and will be held-upright for clear display by the mere act of opening the case.
With the foregoing and other objects in View the invention consists in the arrange ment and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and while the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed herein, stillfor the purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters designate the same parts in the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view showing one form of my improved case in open and display position, the view indicating a conventional form of ring held by the resilient jaws;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the jaw portion of the device in skeleton form or in the form assumed thereby under the force of the spring, but before being covered;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the form of spring I prefer to use; and
Fig. 1 is a vertical transverse section through the jaw portion corresponding to Fig. 2.
The case comprises top and bottom portions 10 and 11 of any suitable size, design or finish, the same being hinged together along their meeting edges at 12 and provided along their opposite edges with any suitable fastening device 13. The portions just now described are of conventional nature and per 86 constitute no part of the present invention. It will be appreciated, however, that the simple form of jewelry case comprising the upper and lower portions with the connecting hinges and fas- These jaws are severally connected to the top and bottom of the case preferably through flexible hinges 16 and 17.
lVithout unnecessarily restricting the invention to a specific-construction, I show the jaw device as comprising a single sheet or strip of material which may be. in the nature of a good quality of heavy manila board or the like and folded upon itself in the middle along the lin'e 18, thereby forming the adjacent fiaps 19 of the two jaws. Each of these flaps is then bent outwardly and down wardly from the other, along a line 20 forming the outer flap 21 of the aws. The lines 20 are parallel to each other and equidistant from the aw hinge line 18. The inner and outer flaps are preferably of the same length. The hinge members 16 and 17 are formed of a tough flexible fabric or its equivalent and each of these members is glued or otherwise secured on the inner surface of the lower end of one of the outer flaps 21. The other ends of the hinge members 16 and 17 are cemented or otherwise rigidly secured within the two main case members 10 and 11 beneath the ornamental lining 22 thereof.
The spring I prefer to use in this device, consists of two parallel loops 23 connected longitudinally of the jaw by means of a bar 24. This spring is slipped into place embracing the hinge line 18 of the jaw structure, the bar 24 lying on oneside of the structure between the inner flap 19 and outer flap 21 and the free ends 25 of the spring constituting the ends of the loops extending up along the other side of the other inner member 19. The jaw members part, the pair of jaws will be swung upwardly into a vertical position, if the case lies flatly upon the table or showcase; or in other words, the jaws extend outward substantially perpendicular to the general plane of the open case so that the jewelry is brought immediately and automatically into the best possible display position. On the other hand, when the case is closed, the jaws and the piece of jewelry held thereby, will fold directly and neatly within the cavity oi the case which may be of the minimum capacity, according to the size of the piece 01'' jewelry to be exhibited or contained within the case. Each jaw in its final form or construction, includes one of the flaps 19 and the adjacent flap 21L These two flaps are held snugly together with a portion of the spring between them. The hinge members or straps 16 and 17 constitute the only connections between the jaw device and the main case. The devlce 1s exceedingly neat in appearance and serves to'display the jewelry in the best possible manner, as well as provide a neat and convenient holder for the jewelry in the closed position of the case.
I claim:
The herein described jewelry case comprising two relatively movable parts hinged together, a jaw device for holding the jewelry, said jaw device comprising a single strip of sheet material folded transversely along its center so as to bring the two flat portions directly against each other, said flat portions being bent away from each other along lines parallel to the first folding line thereby forming two middle flaps and two end fiaps, spring means acting upon the strip so as to hold the two middle flaps toward each other with respect to the first bending line, and flexible strap means connecting the loose ends ofthe end flaps to the respective, case members on opposite sides of the hinge line thereof.
