FQNDATION FOR SCALLOPED EMBROIDERY.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Sept.` 16, 1919.
. Application filed September, 1916. Serial No. 118,492.
To all t0/tom t may concern:
Be it known that CURT Zool-Inn, acitizen of the Empire of Germany7 and a resident of Leipzig, Germany, Whose post ollice address is Leipzig, Germany, has inventedcertain new and useful Improvements in Foundations for Scalloped Embroidery, of vvhich the following is a specification.
This invention has reference to foundations for scalloped embroidery composed of a chain of scallops or small'eurved sections resembling segments of circles.
The foundations for scalloped embroidery usually are made of materials which donot 4 For instance swell and are rather durable. such foundations are made of paper pulp or papier mch and found in the market of a length of about l() cm. It was impossible to Wind such scalloped foundations upon spools because the single scallops are `too Weak attheir meetingpoints to offer sufficient resistance during the Winding. Foundations which are covered with textile fabric are subject to the danger of beingstretched and deformed during the Work and thus lose shape. Ihe requirement as to strength 1s greater With scalloped foundations than with other foundations because they are purposed to form an ornamental edge on the goods. In addition t0 the impossibility of Winding scalloped foundations upon spools they sui-fer from the defect that they break after being embroidered. This can not be sufficiently prevented even with the scalloped foundations covered With textile fabric because the threads of the textile fabric, When cut out do not have sufficient connection.
It is the purpose of the presentinvention to overcome the described defects. lIhis has been accomplished by providing the scalloped foundations with threads passing lon` gitudinally and connected With the foundations.
'Ihe invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in Which:
Figure 1 represents in elevation a scalloped foundation provided with thread thereto applied.
Fig. 2 illustrates a continuous chain of scallops While being Wound upon a spool.
Fig. 3 shovvs in elevation a modified form of the device.
Similar characters of reference denote like parts in all the figures.
In the drawing, in Fig.` l, a plurality of single scallops A of a foundation made of paper areshown. The single scallops meet in known manner in the points B and are also manufactured in connected form. In place ofthe points B connecting straps or traverses may be used. y
According to this invention a plurality of threads C are laid upon the Whole sur.
face of thescalloped foundation and united therewith so `that the threads run continuously over all the scallops A and points B. In the points B the threads are closer together and overlap each other.
face of the foundation is covered by the threads and therefore a special covering of textile fabric is unnecessary.
The method of securing the threads upon the foundations is of no importance for the `present invention. A glutinous substance Inthe dej` scribedmanner I attain that the Whole sur eo y for instance may be used and either the foundation or the threads may be treated with the glutinous substance whereupon the threads and foundation are united by pressure or in other suitable manner.
The novel foundations naturally possess greater strength relative to breaking and deformation than foundations of this kind heretofore used.
rllhie described construction of scalloped foundations may be Wound upon a spool D, as shown in Fig. 2, Without the risk of tearing them in the points. This eases the packing of the foundations and the transportation of the same. Furthermore the foundations may be sold on spools of any desired lengths or may be sold even by the yard. The Working up of the foundations also is more favorable because continuous Working is rendered possible and less arranging is required.
In order to prevent any stretching or deformation of the single scallops A and to rend er the Winding upon spools more secure all the single foundations may be united by means of a thread E running in a straight line and connecting all the scallop points or two Iparallel threads may be used for that purpose to connect parallel sections. By these threads the connection of the single scallops is rendered more secure.
T-he shape of the foundations may vary. For instance the foundations may be composed of single scallops meeting in their points as represented in Figs. l and 2 of the drawing' or the foundations may be made of scallops connected by means of straps or traverses F, as Shown in Fig. 3. Ring foundations and lace foundations may also be constructed as herein described.
I claim as my invention:
l. Foundations for scalloped embroidery made of paper and composed of a plurality of single connected scallops, and threads on the surface of 'each scalloped foundation closely arranged side by side in curved lines and meeting and arranged in superposed 'relation at the points of the scallops and united therewith. l
2. Foundations 'for scalloped embroidery made of paper and coinposed of a plurality of single `connected scallops, threads on the surface of each scalloped foundation closely arranged side by side in curved lines and meeting vand arranged in superposedprelation at the points of thescallops and-united therewith, and threads running` each in a straight line connecting and strengtliening` the scallops.
3. Foundations for scalloped embroidery made yof paper and composed of a -plurality of single scallops united by short straps, threads on the surface of each scalloped foundation closely arranged side by side in Curved tlines and 'meeting and arranged in superposed relation at the points of the scallops and united therewith, and threads rimning each in a straight line connecting and strengthening the scallops.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed vmy name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
