Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed June 16, 1916. Serial No. 103,923.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JACOB EISEN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Finger-Measuring Devices for Rings, of which the followingis a specification.

This invention relates to a device for the fingers for use in etermlnlng the proper size of finger ring.

to be used. Heretofore, devices of this character have consisted of a series of metal to provide a small, compact device of this character, with which the exact proper size of ring to be worn can be determined without unnecessary delay or inconvenience.

The ob This and other objects are readily accomplished by my invention, a more particular description of which will appear below.

eference is to be had to the accompanying'drawing, formingpart hereof, in which Figure l is a front elevation of my improved finger measuring device for rings;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same; and

Fig. 3 is a sectional View on the line 33 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Throughout the various views of the drawings, similar reference characters designate similar parts.

In the preferred embodiment of myinvention, as shown in the accompanying drawings, 1 indicates the frame of the de vice. At one of its ends the frame is provided with a suitable handle 2, and the other end is curved as at 3.

Secured on the frame 1, in a manner to be described is a strip of resilient and flexible material 4. A band 6 extends transversely of the frame 1, adjacent its end 3, and this band 6 is secured to the frame by means of the projections 7 which extend from the side Jopies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by

edges of the frame and ings in the band.

the end of this free portion 9 of t e strip is an indicator 10, which is secured to the strip by a pin 11, or any desired securing means. A projecting button 12 extends from the indicator 10, so that said indicator 10 can be moved in the slot 13 in the frame 1, in which it is mounted.

On the surface of the frame 1 adjacent one edge of the slot 13 is marked a scale of sizes as at 14.

From the foregoing, the operation of may improved device will be readily understoo he finger is inserted in the loop 5 and the loop is then contracted about the finger by drawing the indicator downwardly in the slot 13, until it fits properly when the scale is referred to, the indicator pointing to the proper size ring to be used.

It will be noted that by the use of my improved device, the exact size can be readily determined which cannot be done by the use of the articles now in use.

From the foregoing, it is obvious that my invention is not to be restricted to the exact embodiment herein shown, but I is broad enough to cover all structures coming Within the scope of the annexed claims.

What I claim is:

device of the class described comprising a flat frame having a slot extending longitudinally thereof, a band extending transversely of the frame, a strip of flexible material on said frame h Signed at the city, county and State of New York, this 15th day of June, 1916.
