Application tiled May 21, 1913. Serial No. 769,664.

To all whom t may 'conce/m:

Be it known that 1, OEL E. WARDNEII, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Britain, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have inventedA certain new and useful Improvements in Ornamental Nail-Hooks, of which the following is a specication.

My invention relatesV to improvements in ornamental nail hooks, and the object of my improvement is to produce a nail hook having an ornamental head at the front having a hook portion extending laterally from the periphery thereof and having a nail portion fixed tothe rear face of the said ornamental head and extending rearwardly therefrom. 1n the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved ornamental nail hook. y

Fig. 2 is a rear elevation of the same.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the same.

Fig. 4 is a sectional view on the'line w m of Fig. 1.

My ornamental nail hook comprises a head 10 atthe front end which is of ornamental character, which as shown, has a `convex front face 11 that is unbroken over the entire surface and has a Circular periphery 12 that serves as a base, and a shank 13 integral with the said periphery 12 and extending radially therefrom for an appreciable distance and a hook 14 at the outer end of the said shank 13.

Accordingly, the said ornamental head 10 and hook 14 are integral, and they are formed of sheet metal.

The ornamental head 10 is a shell-like structure, and the rear face, 15 thereof is concave.

Secured to the center of the said rear face 15 of the ornamental head 10 is a nail element 16, and which nail element 16 extends axially rearwardly, therefrom.

The said nail element 16 comprises essen* tially an ordinary steel nail, having at the front end a nail head 17.

The manner of securing the said nail element 16 to the said rear face 15 of the ornamental head 10 as shown consists in embedding the nail head 17 thereof in an enlargement 18 provided on the said rear face 15.

No claim is made for the particular manner of securing the nail element 16 t0 the rear face 15, the method shown being preferred, the same being ordinary and well known in other devices than that shown and described.

The nail element being connected to the ornamental head aS described permits of the use of a hammer without particular damage to the ornamental head, the front face 11 of which covers the nail head 17 of the nail element.

Accordingly, the ornamental nail hook as described is suitable for having` the nail element driven into 'the wall or wood work of any kind and when so driven the said nail element serves as a firm support for the hook and any articles or devices that are suitabie to be placed on the said hook.

The fact that the hook 1-1 is positioned entirely below the ornamental head 11 permits of the free use of the hammer on the said ornamental head in driving the nail element into the woodwork.

y 1t will be noted that the nail portion of my ornamental nail hook corresponds structurally to the upholsterers nail of well known form, comprising the ornamental head 11 and the nail element secured thereto, these parts being firmly united to form a rigid unitary structure, the ornamental head being convex and having a continuous and unbroken front wall, 'the head of the nail element being embedded in the material at the rear side, at the middle, and extending axially rearwardly. The device is constructed suitably to be driven by a hammer, after the manner of the upholsterers nail, as distinguished from a device of the push-button order, and not adapted for use with a hammer.

` Thus the correspondence of the nail portion to the upholsterers nail is essentially complete and unqualified, and the hook 111 is secured to the periphery of the ornamental head and is positioned entirely below the said periphery, suitably to provide clearance for the free use of the hammer in applying the device to the wall or woodwork as desired.

The fact that the head portion 1'? of the nail element 16 is embedded in the enlargement 18 of the rear wall portion of the ornamental head l1 permits the front Wall and extending axially of tlie head and a of the said ornamental head 11 to be eontinuhook integral with the head and suiiciently 1o ous and unbroken. as mentioned. displaced relatively tothe nailliead to pen I claim as my invention mit driving of the latter by a hammer.

5 An ornamental nail hook composed of y y OEL-E. WARDNER two parts, a nail and a hook, the hook connl Vitnesses: f I prising an nnmutilated coni/'GX head with f EDWIN KEELING,-

l the nail portion attached to the concave side Y 'IHos. D. WALKER.
