CHRISTOPHER C. SHELBY, OF PATERSON, NEV JERSEY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 395,183, dated December 25, 1888.
Application filed April 23, 1888.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, CHRISTOPHER C. SHELBY, of Paterson, in the county of Passaic and State of New J ersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bustles; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings,form-i1'1g a part of this specification, and to the figures and letters of reference marked thereon.
My invention relates particularly to a novel construction of the bustle-frame, and, secondly, to an improved col'istruction and arrangement of springs for kccpii'ig the bustle normally expanded.
I11 the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a bustle embodying my improvements; Fi a side elevation of the same closed up, its appearance when expanded being also shown in this figure in dotted lines; Fig. 3, a similar view of still another modification. Fig. t is a view of the modified form of spring.
Similar letters of reference in the several figures indicate the same parts.
The letter A indicates the main frame of the bustle, consisting, preferably, of a metal cloth-covered reed bent and secured in ellip tical form, as shown. To this frame are pivoted by spring-arms B B a series of reeds, C, that are connected together by a tape, 1). Each of the spring-wires B has one end, 1), secured by a clamp, a, or otherwise to the outside of the main-frame reed A,thence passing down and through said main reed at a, and through the ends of the securing-reeds C to the other side of the bustle, where it passes through themain reed again at a and thence proceeds at right angles in the form of an arm, I), as shown in Fig. 1. This arm is adapted to be swung upward, so as to engage with a hook or other fastening device, F, on the bottom reed, C, such swinging up putting the body of the spring-wire under torsional strain and causing the arm to exert sufficient pressure on the said bottom reed, C, to keep the whole bustle expanded, as shown in Fig. 1.
By the employment of the open hooks F for retaining the ends of the spring-wires the con- Serial No. 271,599. (No model.)
Instead of securing one end of each of the spring-wires to one side of the frame and extendin said wire across to the other side and forming it into a spring arm or lever, as shown in Fig. 1, I may cause each of said springwires to extend part way across the frame, and then bend it so as to return it to the same side from whence it started and form its end into an arm or lever for engaging a hook on the bottom reed, as shown in Fig. 4:.
The elliptical form of the main reed or frame is well calculated to maintain the bus tle in shape and prevent any disarrangement of its parts.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is 1. In a bustle, the combination, with the main reed, the waistband, and collapsible hoop-reeds pivoted to the main reed, of the spring for distending the hoopreeds, passing through a hoop reed and connected to the main reed at one end to form the pivot for said 1100p reed, its opposite end passing through the main reed at a point removed from the pivotal point of the hoop-reed, and a connection between the spring and hoopreeds, substantially as described.
2. The combination, with the main reed, the waistband, and collapsible hoop-reeds pivoted to the main reed, of the spring-wires for distending the hoop reeds, connected to the main reed at one end and forming the pivots for said hoop reeds, the other end of said spring-wires passing through the main reed at points slightly removed from the pivotal points of the hoop-reeds, and loose connections between the hoop-reeds and springs, substantially as described.
