WJTNEEEEEI INVINZ'UH M PETERi PM'D'LI UN ITED STATES PATENT UFETCE.

FRANK F. TINGLEY, OF PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND, ASSIGNOR TO BAR- STOW & LUTHER,

OF SAME PLACE.

BRACELET.

PECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 326,606, dated September 22, 1885.

Applicaiion filed January 2, 1885. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK F. TINGLEY, of the city and county of Providence, and State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and useful I 5 Improvement in Bracelets, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification. My invention relates to spring-bracelets, and more particularly to that class of such bracelets in which a series of units is strung upon two springs, by which the bracelet is held firmly upon the arm.

The object of my invention is to simplify r 5 the construction of these bracelets and to impart a more perfect band-like appearance to them, while also preventing any edgewise flexion of the same. a

To the above purposes myinvention consists 2 in a spring-bracelet having its units strung upon two springs and formed each of two parts constituting the bottom and top of the units, said units being preferably of square form and having apertures for the passage of .25 the springs, as hereinafter described and claimed.

In order that my invention may be fully understood, I will proceed to describeit with reference to the accompanying drawings, in

which Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved bracelet. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 3 is a detached view ofa unit and its wires.

5 bracelet having ornamented units. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of one of the units,showing its separate parts. Fig. 6 is a similar view of one of the units shown in Fig. 4.

1n the said drawings, a designates the units,

which may be of any of the jewelry metals, and b designates the springs, which are preferably of steel, but may be of any metal possessing sufficient resilience and rigidity against edgewise movement. The springs are flat 5 and thin, and extend through the units. The units are preferably square, or approximately so, the contiguous sides being straight, and may be either plain, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, or ornamented, as shown in Fig. 4.

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the Upon the ends of thesprings are formed knobs a, which hold the units upon the springs, and also add to the ornamental appearance of the bracelet. It will be seen that by virtue of the shape of the units 110 edgewise movements of the bracelet can occur, and that a very near resemblance to a uniform solid band is produced. Moreover, as but comparatively few parts are embraced in the construction of the bracelet, its cost is materially lessened.

As shown in Figs. 5 and 6, each of the units a is formed with a bottom piece, (K, which is soldered to the unit. The notches through which the wires pass may be formed either in the unit or in its bottom plate, as desired.

The arrangement of the units upon the wires and the square or approximately square form of the units constitute one feature of my invention, while the construction of the units as shown in Figs. 5 and 6 constitutes another feature of the invention; and I wish it to be understood that in this latter feature of my invention I do not limit myself to any precise contour of the units, as this construction is applicable to anyshape-round, angular, or otherwise. 7 5

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. A spring-bracelet the units of which are of square or approximately square form and each composed of two parts constituting the top and bottom of the unit, said units being strung upon the springs and provided with apertures for the passage of the springs, as described. 85

2. The unit composed of the parts a a adapted to be secured together and provided with the notches for the passage of the springs, as set forth.

8. The combination,with the springs I), having the knobs a, of the units composed each of the two parts and having the notches, as specified.

FRANK F. TINGLEY.
