BRACELET. No. 249,861. Patented Nov. 22,1881.
NITED STATESq PATENT. OFFICE.
HERMAN UNGER, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY.
BRACELET.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 249,861, dated November 22, 1881.
Application filed September 8, 1881. (No model.)
To all 'whom it may concern Beit known that l, HERMAN UNGEE, a resident of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey,have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bracelets; and I do hereby declare thefollowing to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference 1o being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to that class of bracelets which have overlapping free ends held into engagement with one another by springs secured in the body of the said bracelet. The object is to reduce the cost of construction and render the device more durable and less liable to get out of order.
zo The invention consists in the arrangement and combination of parts, substantially as will be hereinafter fully shown and described, and finally set forth in the claims.
Referring to the accompanying` drawings, in
which similar letters of reference indicate like y parts in each of the several figures, Figure l is a longitudinal sectional view of a bracelet embodying my improvements; Fig. 2, a perspective View ofthe same; and Fig. 3 is a crosssection, more clearly illustrating the conform ation 0f the bodyof the bracelet. In carrying out my invention, 1 form the body A from one piece of material, preferably sheet metal, and inwardly curve or return the 3,5 edges, as shown in Fig. 3, thus forming a lon gitudinal groove, b, upon the upper face ofthe bracelet.
The braceletbody, formed as described, not only gives a substantial appearance t0 the 4o bracelet at but a small expenditure of metal, but allows the ends of thebracelet to be opened for the insertion of the wrist with greater ease than if the body were of solid material. The ends of the bracelet overlap, as shown in Fig.
2,theirnormaltendencybeingtoremainelosed,
as will be understood. They are adapted to receive such ornamentation as taste may dictate.
To give requisite elasticity to the bracelet, which it lacks, being made from very thin 5o sheet metal, I secure the spring a in the groove b upon the inner face of the bracelet, the manner I prefer of doing it being tosolder or otherwise secure the cud caps, c, within the grooves, so that they will cover the ends of the spring and hold it in position. I also secure the bridge d over the spring, at a point approaching the center of the same.
I can thus produce a bracelet of comparative simplicity, which can be manufactured at 6o a small cost, will be durable, not liable t0 get out of order, and when so can be easily repaired.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and wish to secure by Letters Patent,
l. A bracelet formed from one piece of sheet metal having its edges inwardly returned and its extremities overlapping, and arranged to operate substantially as and for the purposes 7o setforth and shown.
2. In combination with the body of a bracelet formed from one piece of sheet metal and having its edges inwardly returned, a spring secured between said returned edges, substan- 7 5 tially as and for the purposes set forth and shown.
3. In a bracelet, the combination, with the body formed from one piece of material having inwardly-returned edges, of the spring a 8o and end caps, c, all arranged to operate substantially as and for the purposes set forth and shown.
.In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 19th day of 85 August, 1881.
HERMAN UNGER.
