COMBINED SCARF AND PRAYER SHAWL Aug. 18, 1936.
Filed March 8, 1955 Patented Aug. 18, 1936 A UNITED STATS PArssr orriee COMBINED SCARF AND PRAYER SHAWL Maurice M. Rubens, Chicago, Ill.
Application March 8,
1 Claim.`
The invention relatesgenerally to a scarf, and more particularly to a scarf having associated with it certain prescribed features to make it adaptable for use as a prayer shawl.-
5v To comply with the Mosaic law, the Hebrew prayer shawl must be provided Vat each of its four corners with a fringe arranged in a certain prescribed manner and formed with a prescribed number of especially arranged knots or ties. In addition to these specially constructed fringes the shawl is Valso sometimes provided with a specially constructed neckband upon which appears an inscription in Hebrew, which inscription is woven in either gold, silver or white in the neck band, the latter, however, being stitched to the upper edge of the shawl intermediate the ends thereof.
The shawl also includes suitably decorated corner pieces which are attached at each corner of the shawl, said corner pieces being formed with a central opening which coincides with a similar opening formed in the body of the shawl and from which opening the corner fringe extends. The Hebrew prayer" shawl is also usually provided with a plurality of black or blue stripes arranged transversely adjacent the ends of the shawl. This prayer shawl is used by men, and boys after their confirmation.
It is an object of this invention to produce a scarf which may be worn the same as any ordinary scarf and presenting substantially the same appearance, but which will have associated with it the prescribed corner fringe ,and other features necessary for its use as a prayer shawl, thereby making it readily convertible into a prayer shawl whenever found necessary or desirable.
Thus when so constructed, my improved scarf when folded with the neck band and corner pieces disposed on the inside, the scarf will present the same appearance as the ordinary scarf, but when folded the other way it will be suitable for use as a prayer shawl in complete compliance with the Mosaic law. Another object of the invention is to provide a combined scarf and prayer shawl wherein the features necessary in its construction in order to comply with the Mosaic law, will, upon the folding of the scarf, be concealed from View, thereby presenting the appearance of the ordinary and well known scarf.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, arrangement and combination of 19375,V Serial No. 9,953 (Cl. 2-91) portion, size vand minor details of the structure 15;
may be made without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
For the purpose of facilitating `and understanding of my invention, I have illustrated in the accompanying drawing, a preferred embodiment thereof, from an inspection of which when con-- sidered in connection with the following description, my invention, its Inode of construction, assembly and operation, and many of its if:
advantages should be readily understoodand .ap-- preciated.
Referring to the drawing -in which the same characters of reference /areemployed to indicate corresponding or similar parts throughout the several figures of the drawing:
Figure 1 is a plan View of the outside of a scarf embodying my invention;
2 is a plan view of the opposite side of said scarf;
Fig. 3 is an enlarged plan view of one of the corner pieces associated with my scarf; and
Fig. 4 is .a view in perspective showing the same in folded position and as it would appear when worn as an ordinary scarf. 30
Referring to the drawing more specifically by characters of reference, the numeral I0 designates generally a scarf woven of any suitable material such as wool or silk, in white, which scarf is of a length and width commonly used for articles of this character. The scarf I0 is of generally rectangular formation and may be provided at its ends with the usual fringe Il. As so far described, the scarf is of the same general construction as the well known scarfs now appearing on the market.
In the embodiment illustrated, however, there is provided in the scarf construction certain features which are prescribed by the Mosaic law inV order to make the same suitable for `use as a prayer shawl. To this end, the shawl is provided at each corner thereof with a suitably ornamented or decorated corner piece of silk or wool which is stitched to the body of the shawl, said corner piece being substantially of square formation about two inches on the side and is generally designated by the reference character I2. The ornamentation usually consists of a plurality of six pointed stars woven into the fabric.
' ach of said corner pieces is secured along 1 three sides to one face of the scarf, which face is designated as Ythe inside face. A suitable hole I3 is provided at or about the center of the corner piece, said hole co-inciding with a similar Yopening provided in the body of the scarf. Se-
cured in said hole I3 is a fringe or'tassel I4, which fringe must be formed of threads of white wool. VInV said fringe I4 are provided a plurality of knots I5,"said knots being of the prescribed formation and number and thus secure the fringe Y I4 in place in the shawl. V'I'hisrconstruction isv the same'for all four cornersas each of said j corners is provided with the corner piece l2 and fringe I4.. Y l fr n jYIn addition to the lprescribed *corner fringe I4, the shawl is also provided on the inside thereof with the neckband II which Ymay also be woven of wool or silk in white and upon which isA inscribed*Y aV prescribed inscription in Hebrew characters, said characters may be w'oven'in gold,
v silver or plain white. The body of the scarf has also providedthereon adjacent its ends a plurality oftransversestripes I1, which stripes'are either in black or'blue,V these being also required by the Mosaic law. Y
-This completes Vthe'construction ofmy com-Y bined scarf and prayer shawl and fwhen'folded longitudinally withpthecorner pieces and neckbandfon the inside, the scarf'niay be worn in Y the ordinary manner and will completely concealY Y the decorated corner pieces and neckband,pthus presenting the appearance ofthe Yusual scarf.
However; when'it is desired to use the same as a Y prayer shawl, the lscarf is placed around the neck with theends thereof hanging from the shoulders, and when used in this manner, Vthe neckband'and d ecoratedrcornerVV pieces are on the outside, the appearance thus presented being of the regulation prayer shawl.
It-will' thus be noted that I have combined in a a VVsingle article a scarfi'and'a prayer shawl which will be both attractive and suitable for both purposes and which may be readily changed from ch to the other of its uses.V
By reason of the corner piecesY I 2 being secured at three sides only there is formed a pocket I8 at each corner, within which pocket may be disposed the corner fringe I4 when it is desired to Y wear the scarf as an ordinary scarf; When it is desired to use the same as a prayer shawl, the
corner fringes may be removed from theirrespectivepockets and thus make the scarf suitableV for use in that manner;r
It is believed that my invention, its mode ofV construction, andY assembly, and many ofV its ad'- at each corner of Ysaid'scarfvand a fringe extending from each ofsaid-cornerv pieces, saidvneck band,
' corner pieces and fringe being of regulation con- Y struction described byfMosaic law, whereby the said scarf may be nsedY as a prayershawlgsaid neck band, and cornerpieces being disposed on one side of said scarf only whereby the said scarf may be'worn so as to permit concealment'of said neck band, corner pieces and fringe whenv it is desired to use the same as an ordinarytscarf,
each of said corner pieces having one edge there- Y of leftrunsecured to'form with the body of the scarf a pocket within which its associated fringe may be'dispos'edgand concealedfrom view when thescarf isV notl YusedrasV a prayer shawl,V said fringe being inserted into said pocket through the unsecured open edgerthereof` i MAURICE M. RUBENS.
