Application August 28, 1934, Serial No. 741,749
8 Claims. (01. 24-6) This invention relates to a flower or bouquet holder, and has'for one of its objects the provision of ornate means for securing a bouquet upon the garment of the wearer. 7
Another object of the invention is the provision of such a device formed without the use of solder and from'a minimum number of parts each capable of being formed by tool operation in multiple production.
Another object of the invention is theprovision of an outer surface which may be ornamented to add to its attractive appearance.
Another object of the invention is the provision of securing means formed from portions of the stock of the relatively movable parts thereby to reduce the necessary assembly operations.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features of con: struction, as will be more fully described, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing: 7

Fig. 9 is a perspective view of a different modifled form of construction;
Fig. 10 is a sectional Figure 9'; V
In the mounting of bouquets or bunches of flowers on the garment of the wearer; it is difficult to secure such a bouquet by the use of pins or the like. Also, the portion which secures the bouquet in position is frequently exposed to view, and in order that a device'may be provided for better and easier holding of a bouquet in position and one which may be highly ornamented to be attractive in appearance and add to the ornate effect of the flowers rather than detract therefrom, we have provided a holder which is formed of a minimum number of parts which will securely grip the stems of a bouquet and may be highly ornamented by reason of the amount of view on line Ill-l0 of exposure of surface thereon; and the following is a more detailed description of the present em bodiment of this invention, illustrating the preferred means by which these advantageous results may be accomplished:
With reference to the drawing, I U designates the base member and II the arcuate holding member which cooperatestherewith by being suitably hinged thereto. Ihe base member Ill is notched along its opposite edges as at E2 and it to provide a generally reshaped, flat base.
Along one edge of both wider portions at the ends of the base extensions of the stock are rolled to provide eyes I4, while on the opposite side of the edges of these wider portions extensions of,
the stock are foldedto provide latches I5 having openings I6 therein. These latches are bent up from the edge portion adjacent to portions I'I protruding beyondthem at either side of the latch I5 to form stops for limiting the swinging movement ofthe member II.. From the, stock of the base at one end we cut and'bend down ears I8 to provide a pivotal joint I9 for the. pin stem which has an eye 2I toreceive a pivot pin positioned between the ears I8;
while at the opposite end of the base the stock is out and bent as at 22 to provide a catch to be engaged by the point 23' of the pin stem 20. 'By
this arrangement, the pin is simply mounted on the base and the base may be secured to a garment, as desired.
The arcuate securing member II is also pro-- vided with cut-out portions 24 and 25 to provide a somewhat skeleton structure. 7 Along one edge of the member I I at either side of the cut-out 24, we provide extensions and roll eyes 26 which are positioned to align with the eyes I4 and receive a hinge or pintle pin 21 which may be of a length toextend through both sets of hinge eyes or two separate pins may be used, asdesired.
Along the opposite edge portion of the member I I the cut-out is 'so arranged that the stock is permitted to remain to provide a bar 28 and there areformed detents or catches 29 to extend into the openings I 6 .and be engaged by the latches 15 when member I I is swung about the hinge so as to hold the parts in clasped relation, and in order that the device may be readily opened, I have provided a finger piece or handle 3!! on the bar 28 by which this bar may be used for springing the arcuate member outwardly to disengage the catch and latch means.
In order that the bunch of flowers may be more securely held in position and restrained from shifting with relation to the device, We have cut this additional member being shown at 32 cut out and provided with side bars 34 which carry some suitable ornamentation such as gems 35 set therea in. This member may be secured over the arcuate member I l in any desired manner. In some cases where the front bar is not desired, the generally cylindrical member I l is cut out to a further extent to' provide merely arcuate band-like portions 36 at either end thereof connected by a bar 31, as shown in Figure 8. In this case, particularly if the bands are narrow, spurs 38 will be bent from a different direction than the spurs, in Figures 1 to 6, inclusive, and may consist of a plurality of spurs, as shown in Figure 8.
In Figure 9 we have illustrated a much simpler construction consisting of a short base member 40 and band member 4| hinged together and provided with a pin stem 42 extending at right angles rather than parallel to the hinge, as formerly shown. This form, however, has a spur 43 and clasp 44, as illustrated in the former larger construction and is otherwise similar except of more diminutive-form.
The foregoing description is directed solely towards the construction illustrated, but we desire it to be understood that we reserve the privilege of resorting to all the mechanical changes to which the device is susceptible, the invention being defined and limited only by the terms of the appended claims.-
We claim:
1. A flower holder comprising a base member of flat stock, an arcuate member hinged to said base member, latchesand catches on said members to secure them in clasped position, and means on said base member to secure it to a garment, said arcuate member consisting of two spaced arcs connected together by a strip extending at right angles to said arcs.
2. A flower holder comprising a base member of flat stock, an arcuate member hinged to said base member, latches and catches on said members to secure them in clasped position, and means on said base member to secure it to a garment, said'arcuate member consisting of two spaced arcs connected together by a plurality of strips extending at right angles thereto.
3. A-flower holder comprising a base member, an arcuate member hinged to said base member, latches and catches on said members to secure them in clasped position, said arcuate member consisting of two spaced arcs connected together by a strip extending at right angles thereto and along the free edges of said arcs, said base being notch between said arcs to afford access to said strip for manipulating said latches and catches.
