5 Claims.
This invention relates to a necktie holder. One object of the invention is to provide an article of jewelry particularly designed for application to wearing apparel to ornament a neck- 5 tie and in which a plurality of flexible elements may lie in draped form over the necktie when the article is in use.
Another object of the invention is to provide a clasp for connection with wearing apparel having an endless element which is uniformly flexible throughout its length and connected to and supported from the clasp to receive a necktie.
Another object of the invention resides in the provision of an article of jewelry in which an ornamental wearing apparel clasp is provided with an ornamental endless flexible element arranged to provide a loop to embrace the necktie or to cooperate with the clasp to provide a loop composed in part by the clasp and in part by a plurality of draped flexible elements to receive a necktie with the plurality of draped flexible elements lying over the front of the necktie for ornamental purposes.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an article of jewelry particularly designed for display with relation to a tied four-in-hand necktie or cravat, embodying among other characteristics, a clasp or other supporting means and an ornamental endless chain or other flexible element associated therewith and which may be folded at spaced points to provide spaced strands to lie preferably in draped formation over the front of the necktie or cravat or which may receive a necktie between them to display but one flexible draped element over the front of the necktie or cravat rather than to display the two strands and thereby in the one article of jewelry pro vide for a change in form or appearance of the article in its association with the necktie or cravat and according to the wishes or desires of the wearer.
With these and other objects in View, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims hereto appended, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion and minor details of construction, Within the scope of the claims, may be resorted to Without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawings Fig. 1 is a front view of the invention applied to wearing apparel showing the draped strands arranged one above the other in spaced relation over a necktie.
Fig. 2 is a front view of a portion of a shirt and tied necktie flaps showing a different arrangement of the strands with relation to the necktie. 5
Fig. 3 is a front view of the invention unattached showing still another arrangement of the strands of the flexible element of the article of jewelry.
Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional View on the line t--d of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a rear view of the clasp part of the article.
Fig. 6 is a transverse view on the line 6--& of Fig. 5.
Fig. 7 is a front view of a modified form of the clasp part of the invention.
Fig. 8 is a longitudinal sectional view on the line 8-4] of Fig. '7.
Figs. 9, l and 11 illustrate another modification of the clasp part of the invention.
Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawings, the reference character A indicates a portion of a shirt illustrating the front button-hole line of the shirt and 13 indicates a tied four-in-hand necktie or cravat.
The article of jewelry, in the present instance, comprises in part a clasp 0 including a relatively narrow substantially stiff or rigid bar l which is bent at one end, as at 2, and which extends from the bent portion 2 forwardly over the bar l in spaced relation to the bar, as indicated at it. The said forwardly extending portion 3 is bifurcated for the pivotal support of a spring pressed lever t in any suitable manner. The spring pressed lever if has spaced segmental shaped toothed portions which are adapted to lie within the edges of the bar l to cooperate with the latter to clasp the shirt A, adjacent one end of the clasp, along the line of the button-hole of the shirt. This particular design of clasp C is but one of various forms of clasps adapted for my present purposes if the clasp is provided with extensions for the support of an ornamental draped chain or other flexible elements, in this instance, an ornamental endless chain D or other ornamental flexible element.
The bar I of the clasp C, in the present instance, is provided with extensions in the form of tapering elements a and b having eyes 6 and l and which may extend slightly downwardly below the plane of the bar l. The eyes are preferably formed with the bar and they may be arranged otherwise than as shown and described but they are preferably disposed at the ends of the bar l. 55
The tapered extension I) is formed as a continuation of the bar I and the extension a may be a separate piece soldered or otherwise secured to the respective end of the bar I.
The ornamental flexible element, in this instance, is preferably of small link chain type as shown. The chain is threaded loosely through the eyes 8 and l and end links of the chain are then connected together to provide the endless type of flexible element which is loosely and slidably mounted in said eyes 6 and l and foldable at said spaced points to convert the endless element into two draped flexible strands 8 and 9 suspended from the eyes to lie close together or one spaced above the other over the front of a necktie when the article is in use.
The ornamental flexible strands 8 and 9 are of greater length than the bar I, and when the article is in use, these strands are arranged in symmetrical draped relation.
The support of the endless flexible element by means of the eyes 6 and. 1 permits the strands 8 and 9 to be draped or arranged in a variety of adjusted display positions on the front of the necktie or cravat and this mounting of the ornamental endless flexible element together with the nature of the element permits one of the strands to be displayed on the front of the necktie or cravat while the other strand may be concealed by or located back of the flaps or between the flaps of the tied four-in-hand necktie or cravat. The links of the chain type of flexible element are relatively small and of a size to engage with the eyes 6 and I of the bar I in a manner to retain the strands in adjusted or draped positions.
In the use of the present article of jewelry, the clasp is clipped to the button-hole edge or line of the shirt front before or after the four-in-hand necktie or cravat is tied. The end flaps of the necktie or cravat may then be passed downwardly through the loop E formed in part by the clasp and in part by the flexible element and the two ornamental draped flexible elements may then be arranged symmetrically one above the other in contact or spaced apart over the front of the necktie or cravat as may be desired by the wearer, producing an artistic effect or appearance.
If desired, the end flaps of the tied necktie or cravat may be passed downwardly between the strands, displaying one draped strand over the front of the necktie and locating the other strand in the rear of the necktie. If desired, the necktie may be arranged in either of said arrangements with relation to the article and the article then clasped to the shirt. In any event, the flexible element is slidably supported for draped or other adjustment purposes from the claspand as the flexible element is disposed loosely in the eyes of the clasp the adjustments may be easily and readily effected.
The clasp and flexible element or either of them may be composed of any suitable ornamental material and they may be superficially or otherwise ornamented, and if desired, they may be gold or silver plated or in fact of solid gold or silver if desired.
It will be understood that the present article of jewelry may be clasped to wearing apparel other than a shirt and that when used in association with a shirt and a necktie or cravat, the article may be readily altered or converted to provide in the one article the display of either one or a plurality of draped elements across the front of the necktie or cravat.
Some neckties have end flaps wider than others and in such an event the loop F is rendered longer than the loop E as when both strands lie over the front of the necktie. It will thus be seen that the present article is adjustable as regards disposition of the strands 8 and 9 and. also as to length of loops to accommodate various widths of neckties.
It will also be understood that by virtue of the particular clasp employed it is unnecessary to clasp the wearing apparel throughout the length of the clasp and that by reason of the particular clasp employed there is but small pressure bearing surface of the clasping parts on the wearing apparel and that the clasping connection rather than being made throughout the length of the bar is made at a relatively small portion of the bar and adjacent one end of the bar.
By reference to Figs. '7 and 8 there will be seen a modified form of clasp, indicated generally, at C. In this instance the front bar I is formed of reversely curved oppositely disposed intersecting bar parts It! and H, having connecting end portions l2 and i3 and resulting in openings M and 15. The end portion i2 is bent at It and directed forwardly over the bar I to provide the support H for the pivotal mounting at l8 for the spring pressed clasping lever !9. Before the end portion 12 is thus bent it is preferable to strike out of the metal of the end I2 a bar end extension member 20 which may be bent to project from the bend l6 longitudinally in the plane of the bar to provide a bar extension integral with the bar and provided with an eye 2| to receive the aforesaid endless flexible element which may be readily threaded through said eye 2| and the eye 22 at the opposite end of the bar I.
In Figs. 9, 10 and 11, the bar I of the clasp may have the eye extension 23 to receive the flexible element and the opposite end extension 24 may be a separate piece. For instance, the and extension 24 includes an eye 25 and spaced slightly deflected bendable flanges 26 and 2'! to embrace the bent portion 2 of the bar I to dispose the eye portion 25 in a longitudinal plane with the bar l To permit of this embracing relation of the fingers 26 and 21 with the bend 2 the fingers have notches 28 and 29, respectively, to tightly embrace the sides of the bend 2 upon forcing the fingers toward each other and enable the outer sides of the extension 24 to line up with the edges of the body of bar I. The fingers may be connected with the bar by soldering or otherwise or a tight pinching of the fingers on the bend 2 may sufiice to effect a tight connection of the fingers with the bend 2 If desired for ornamental purposes the bar may be engraved in spiral effect, as at 30 or otherwise ornamented.
All of the advantages recited for the form first described can be attributed to the modified forms of the invention.
