This invention relates to ornaments, particularly to an ornament to be used for a Christmas tree, and has for its main object to provide a device of this character of novel improved construction and of artistic novel effect.
Another object of this invention is to provide a device as characterized hereinbefore, which will have simple efficient securing means, whereby it may be easily and removably secured on a Christmas tree.

My novel ornament for Christmas trees, and for other purposes, substantially is a doll, dressed and shaped like an angel, and having means associated therewith, whereby it may be easily and removably secured on the tip of a Christmas tree or'any branch thereof.
Referring now to the drawings more in detail by characters of, reference, the numeral 20 indicates my fully assembled dressed ornamental angel doll, in general, the same being built up of a base doll or body, generally indicated by the numeral 2 I, of a dress, generally indicated by the numeral 22, and having certain ornaments associated therewith, as will be more fully described hereinafter, and a pair of wings 23. a
The basic body or doll 2| may have an appropriate body proper 24, a head 25, two arms 26, attached to the body 24 in any appropriate manner, and preferably in a movable jointed way, as indicated at 21, and having the hands 28.
A downward cylindrical extension 29 is added to the main body 24, being of considerably smaller diameter than the body, andthe body preferably terminating in a cylindrical lower flange portion 30. I
The dress of the doll is composed of a skirt portion 3|, a blouse or waist portion 32, having a triangular extension 33, and the two sleeve portions 34.
The skirt 3| is outwardly flaring in a downward direction and may be secured to the waist portion 32 by the seam 35. It is cut from an appropriate piece of textile material, preferably of shining silk or the like, in a blank of obvious shape, the free edges 3|a and 3|b of which are secured together by a seam 36 in the rear of the dress. The blank of the waist or blouse is shown in Fig. 9a and it has the two side portions 31 and the mentioned triangular portion 33, and when forming the dress, the free edges 31a. of said side portions will be united by a seam 31b in the front of the dress, and the lower edges 31c thereof will be united with the skirt 3| by the mentioned seam 35; the dress then appearing as shown in Fig. 9; the upper ends of the edges 3|a and 3|b being left free and not united by the seam 36, as well as the upper rear edges 31d of the waist or blouse 32 also being left free.
-As will be observed, 2. preferably generally circular opening 38 is arranged in the blank of the blouse 32, and the dress, in the position shown in Fig. 9, is now slipped over the head 25 of the doll body 2 3. Previous to this, the sleeves 34 are formed of the blanks 34a (Fig. 4) and secured to the sleeve hole or opening 34b of the blouse by an appropriate seam.
A triangular portion 33 is now bent downwardly over the front of the angel doll (Figs. 1 and 2), whereupon the waist band or belt 39 is app1ied and secured in the rear to the doll body 24 by a preliminary manner.
The hair of the angel doll ornament is formed.
of an appropriate strand of wavy, shining textile material 4|, which may be cut off from a long strand thereof, indicated in an imaginary manner at 42, by the cutting lines 43, and the portion 4| appropriately arranged over the head and at the twosides of the face of my angel doll ornament, as indicated in the figures; the crown band 44 applied therearound and, then secured by any appropriate means, as by the staple 45.
The wings of my angel doll are formed of one piece of material, preferably a stamped gold or silver colored piece 45 of cardboard, and now the same will be secured to the back of the doll, as by the staples 41, thereby also finally securing the dress of my angel doll on its body 24.
Ornamental stars 49 may also be employed on various portions of the dress, and in Figs. 15 and 16 I illustrate a preferred form of securing thereof. The star 49 may be of any appropriate sheet material, preferably gilded orsilver colored, and in the material of the skirt 3|, and, of course, similarly in the material of the triangular portions 33, or any other part of the dress where a star is to be employed, a hole 50 will be made, a similar hole being provided in the material of the star 59, whereupon a tubular, preferably metal eyelet 52 will be riveted over the parts, as indicated in Fig. 16, and as will be obvious.
As has been mentioned hereinbefore, the preferred means for removably securing my ornament on the tips of Christmas trees or their branches will be in the form of a tube 53-, preferably oi inexpensive cardboard. The upper portion of said tube will be pushed over the depending cylindrical extension 29 of the body 24 (Figs. 3 and '8), and it also may be secured on said depending extension by staples 54.
I may remark that all these staples may be of uniform type, as indicated at 55 in Fig. 18-,
and an appropriate small manual, or other, device may be employed whereby such staples may be driven into the required pieces in a quick and easy manner, as will be understood, such devices being well known in the art. The doll body 2 I, of course will be of such material as to permit stapling.
In Fig. 3 I illustrate the removable easy securing of my ornamental angel doll on the tip of a Christmas tree, the tube 53 simply being pulled over the top 56 of it, or of an appropriate branch of the tree, and, in a similar manner, the ornament may anytime be removed and stored for later use.
It will be understood that other suitable securing means may be employed in connection with my novel ornamental angel doll, like a helical spring, the upper end of which will engage the depending cylindrical extension 29' on the angel doll and the lower end engaging the appropriate tip of the Christmas tree or a branch thereof, and, in a similar manner, other suitable clamping devices may be used, as will be obvious.
My ornamental angel doll may also be used at other places than on a Christmas tree, like on the wall of a room, etc.
I also employ a preferred method of mounting my angel doll for storage and shipping, as indicated in Figs. 10 and 11.
My mounting device consists of a preferably cardboard base plate 51 over the upper portion of which a transverse similar strip of material 5.3 isv placed, and secured thereon, as by the staples 59.
The upper ends or tips 45a of the Wings 46 will be pushed underneath the free ends of the strip 58 and thereupon secured by the staples 60, so that my angel doll ornament is resting on the plate 51 suspended and secured by its wings underneath the two sides of its strip 58, and in this position, it may be handled, stored, wrapped, boxed'and shipped, easily and safely.
When it is desired to use the ornament, staples 60 will be opened and removed, and the wings 4B pulled from underneath the strip '58;
While I have described and illustrated preferred forms and embodiments. of the, construction, elements, combinations, and methods of manufacturing of my novel ornamental angel doll, it will be understood that changes and variations may be resorted toy in the elements, construction, combination and: processes thereof, and
Ireserve my rights to all such changes and variations which are within the spirit of this specification and, the scope of the claims hereunto appended. 1
Such variations and changes may consist in dyeing the hair to diiferent colors, preferably blonde and using for the dress of'my ornamental doll, printed silk of appropriate design and; color effect.
What I claim as new and want to protect by Letters Patent of the United'States, is:
1. In an ornament for Christmas trees, having a doll body, and a dress, secured on the body, a dependent extension on said body, a tubular member, one end adapted to be pushed over said extension and the other over the tip of a Christmas tree, for securing said doll on said tip, said extension and said tube being concealed by said dress.

4. An ornamental doll for- Christmas trees, having a dell body with a head, a dress on said body, including a skirt portion, a blouse portion and a triangular extension on said blouse adaptan angel-like appearance to said ornamental doll and to further secure the dress on the body, a strand of textile threads arranged on said head to imitate the hair thereon, a band around said 5 head, and, the hair thereon, and a staple to secure said band on said head and said hair therethrough.
