Jan. 23, 1968 J. R. FOX 3,364,500 v BOLO TIE STRUCTURE Filed Aug. 50, 1965 INVENTOR JOHN R. FOX

United States Patent ()fltice 3,%4,5@ Patented Jan. 23, 1968 3,364,500 BOLD TIE STRUCTURE John R. Fox, 8742 Thornwood Drive, Scottsdale, Ariz. 85251 Filed Aug. 30, 1965, Ser. No. 483,751 6 Claims. (Cl. 2-150) This invention relates to a bolo tie structure, and more particularly to a bolo tie structure to be worn around a persons neck.

Bolo ties generally comprise a braided leather flexible and yieldable tie held in a clasp of ornamental character, some of these clasps being made of silver and, for example, having turquoise or other semi-precious gems thereon. The bolo tie is generally provided with aesthetic features, and particularly the forward faces of the clasp members of bolo ties have hereinfore been engraved, mounted with semi-precious gems or ornamented in some fashion to provide costume jewelry effects.

Prior art bolo ties, at their clasp portions, have heretofore been generally provided with only a single ornamental or presentable face, while the normally rearward surface of such bolo ties have been provided with a utilitarian clasp or holding device arranged frictionally to hold the braided or other flexible structure of the neck encircling tie portion of the bolo tie.

Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a bolo tie comprising a flexible neck encircling structure which may be made of braided leather, or the like, and having a tie holding bolo structure comprising opposed presentable faces, each of which may display different engraving, ornamentation or serni-precious gems, as desired, whereby ornamental and holding structure may be reversible or double-sided.

Another object of the invention is to provide a very novel bolo tie structure wherein the flexible neck encircling tie portions of the bolo are frictionally held in channels disposed between contiguous members, each having a presentable face and a contiguous face; the contiguous faces being engaged with each other and provided with opposed coinciding recesses to retain the neck encircling portions of the bolo tie.

Another object of the invention is to provide a bolo tie having a holding structure composed of two identical plate members each of which is provided with a presentable face on opposite sides of the holding structure and each of which is provided with a contiguous face which is engaged with a complemental face of the other member and each face being provided with a corresponding projection and a corresponding receiving recess, whereby the projections and recesses are interengaged to hold the two members of the holding structure together at their contiguous faces.

Another object of the invention is to provide a very attractive bolo tie which is economical to produce and which has reversible presentable faces, each of which may carry or support a variety of costume jewelry or ornamentation.

Further objects and advantages of the present invention may be apparent from the following specification, appended claims and accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a bolo tie, in accordance with the present invention, and showing portions of the neck encircling structure of the tie fragmentarily;

FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken from the line 2--2 of FIG. 1 showing the neck encircling tie portions omitted;

FIG. 3 is a sectional view taken from the line 3-3 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a perspective view similar to FIG. 1, but showing a modified form of the invention; and

FIG. 5 is a sectional view taken from the line 5-5 of FIG. 4.

As shown in FIG. 1 of the drawings, the bolo tie of the present invention comprises a generally flexible or yieldable neck encircling tie structure having opposite end portions and 12 which are generally integral with a loop passing around the back of a persons neck and these portions 10 and 12 may be of braided leather, or the like.

These portions 10 and 12 are held frictionally in a bolo holding structure 14 composed of a pair of plate members 16 and 18. The plate member 16 is provided with a presentable face 20 and the plate member 18 is provided with a presentable face 22. The plate member 16 is provided with a contiguous face 24 which is contiguous with a corresponding contiguous face 26 of the plate member 18.

Recessed within the contiguous face 24 are bol-o passage recesses 28 and 30 which correspond and align with passage recesses 32 and 34, respectively, which are recessed in the contiguous face 26 of the plate member 18.

The plate members 16 and 18 are preferably identical and, thus, the form of the passage recesses 32 and 34, shown in FIG. 2 of the drawings, are similar and corresponding with the respective passages 2:8 and 30 of the plate member 16.

It will be seen that the passage recesses 32 and 34 are provided with open ends 36 and 38, respectively, at a normally upper end 40 of the plate member 18, while the passage recesses 32 and 34 are provided with open ends 42 and 44, at the normally lower end 46 of the plate member 18.

The plate member 18, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3 of the drawings, is provided with a projection 48 extending from its contiguous side 26; the projection 48 being adjacent one edge 50 of the plate member 18 and the plate member 18 is also provided with a corresponding recess 52 near an edge 54 opposite to the edge 59. Thus, each plate member 16 and 18 is identical and being provided with a corresponding projection 48 and recess 52, such that the projection 48 of the plate member 18 may fit in a corresponding recess 52 of the plate member 16 and whereby the projection 48 of the plate member 16 may fit into a corresponding recess 52 of the plate member 18.

In the modification, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5 of the drawings, the invention comprises a pair of plate members 56 and 57 provided with respective presentable faces 58 and 60 and respective contiguous faces 62 and 64.

The presentable faces 58 and 60 are similar to the presentable faces Zll and 22 of the plate members 16 and 18.

The holding structure of the modification, as shown in FIG. 4 comprising both plates 65 and 57 is designated 64 and opposite edges 66 and 68 of this holding structure of the modified bolo includes passages 7t) and 72, respectively, which are formed of semicircular in cross-section recesses in the respective faces 62 and 64, these contiguous faces being interrupted by the recess passage portions and the passages 70 and 72 are open at the opposite edges 66 and 68. The passage 68 being similar to the passage 70 is formed by a substantially semicircular in cross-section recess portion 74 in the contiguous face 62 and a corresponding semicircular in cross-section passage recess 76 in the contiguous face 64. These passages extend and are open from a normally upper end 78 to a lower end 80 of the holding structure 64 of the bolo.

As shown in FIG. 5 of the drawings, the plate member 56 is provided with a projection 82 extending from its contiguous face 62 and is also provided with a recess 84 extending inwardly relative to the contiguous face 62. These projection and recessed structures 82 and 84 correspond with the hereinbefore described projection and recessed structures 48 and 52, respectively, so that the plates 56 and 57 are identical and the bolo holding structure 64 differs from the structure 14, in that the bolo tie holding passages are in the outer edges of the holding structure, rather than extending through internal passages, such as the passages 32 and 34, shown in FIG. 2 of the drawings.

It will be understood that the opposed portions 74 and 75 of the passages 70 and 72 are substantially closer together than the overall diameter of the bolo tie portions 16 and 12 and that these tie portions being of braided leather are yieldably clamped such that they may he slidably moved through the holding passages, but attains sufficient frictional engagement therein to hold these tie portions securely in the holding structures 14 and 64, respectively.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that various modifications of the present invention may be resorted to in a manner limited only by a just interpretation of the following claims.

I claim:

1. In a bolo tie structure, the combination of: a pair of substantially flat opposed plate members; each plate member having a substantially flat presentable face portion and a substantially fiat opposed face portion; said opposed face portions being contiguous with each other; means securing said members together; recessed passage portions, in each of said opposed face portions, and opposed to and coinciding with other corresponding passage portions in each of said opposed face portions; and bolo tie portions frictionally held between said opposed plate members and in said respective opposed passage portions.
