TO MEYER LEHMAN, OF NEW FLEXIBLE SUPPORT IEGRv HAY1'CLRIIVIMINGS.
y Specification of Letters Patent. Patented June 13, 1916.
Application led March 15, 1916. Serial No. 84,324.'
, To all whom t may concern:
Be 1t known that I, PAULINE RosENFrELD, Y
a subject of the Czar of Russia, and a resident of the city of New York borough ofV simple and inexpensive ribbonlike supportA which is reinforced or strengthened at the longitudinal edges so that when the same is shaped, with any suitable material, into a bow or similar ornament it will prevent the material from sagging at the edges and will allow sufficient deformation to adjust the shape of the ornament.
With the above and other objects in view,
the nature of which will more fully appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as herein fully described, illustrated and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, forming part ofthe application, similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure l is an elevation of an ornament in the shape of a bow provided with an embodiment of my invention; Fig. 2 is an elevation of a fragment of the support; and Fig. 3 is a cross section on line 3-3, Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawings, t isa strip of crinoline bordered at each ongitudinal edge with a wired tape 5, both tapes being pref- Gopies of this patent may be obtained for erably provided on the same surface of the crinoline. The wired tape 5 reinforces the crinoline and gives body to the same at the edges, whereby a bow 6 formed of ribbon inclosing the support will retain any desired shape. The wired support alsoy prevents the parts l of ribbon overhanging .the edges of the support from sagging, due to the strength of the support at the edges.y
A bow or ornament inclosing a support as described makes the ornament iexible and will easily permit an adjustment in the ornament without the necessity of taking Y the same apart. Thematerial forming the ornament does not have to be'stitched to the support, for the wired tapes at the edges prevent the Vmaterial of the ornament from sliding off the support. A shaped bow or other ornament can be easily reshaped without a change of support, for the support can be as easily reshaped as the material of which the ornament is formed;
I claim: Y A
l. A. support of the class described formed of a strip of a crinolinereinforced by wired tape at the longitudinal edges thereof'.V
' 2; A support of the class described Vcomprising a; crinoline strip and wired tape secured to the crinoline at the longitudinal edges and on the same surface of the strip.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification 1n the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
