Specification of Letters Patent. Pate t d J 18 1921 Application filed March 24, 1920. Serial No. 368,481.

To all 'LU/L-OWZ it may concern: 7

Be it known that I, Ronnn'r 'RUDLAND Bonn, a citizen of Great Britain, residing at Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii; havei-nvented a new and useful-Pocket-Holder for Fountain-Pens, of which the following is a specification.

An objectof this. invention is to provide an improved and artistic. pocket holder for fountain pens and itisunderstood that the same is. adapted. tohold pencils or the like.

An object of the invention is to provide a simple and attractive pocket holder which is unobtrusive and ornamental'in its character and which leaves the fountain pen free from projections or clamps thereon.

The invention may be made in various forms and I shall show it in a form which is deemed preferable where plainness and simplicity is a ruling characteristic and also in another form which is merely illustrative of the fact that various constructions may be made. An object in the preferred construction is to provide a holder that is pliable and yielding to the person when the pen is not in place.

A desired advantage arising from this invention is the ease of replacing the fountain pen in secured position in the pocket, and in this respect the invention comprises broadly, a clasp adapted to receive the end of the fountain penas the pen is returned to the pocket, and means to secure such clasp inside the pocket in position to receive such pen at such time, thus avoiding the necessity of adjusting a clamp upon the yielding edge of the pen holding pocket as in former fountain pen holders known to me.

Other objects, advantages and features of invention may appear from the accompanying drawing, the subjoined detail description and the appended claims.

The accompanying drawing illustrates the invention.

7 Figure l is an outside view of the invention as it may appear applied to the pocket of a coat with fountain pen in place.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmental sectional elevation showing the holder holding the fountain pen in the pocket which is shown in vertical section. I

Fig. 3 is a fragmental plan section of the coat and pocket on the plane indicated by line 01?, Fig. 2, showing the holder with pen in place.

Fig. 4 is a ie f the parts which go to make up the: construction shown in Figs. 2 and 3.

Fig. 5 is a fragmental view analogous to Flg, 1, on the scale of'Fig. 2, showing the device as it may appear when the pen is withdrawn.

Fig. 6 is'a view analogousto Fig. 3'show- 111g an embodiment different. from that shown in Fig. 3. r

Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the holder clamped to the front wall of the pocket and constructed in the form shown in Fig.5.

The invention mainly consist's'of' three parts, viz., an outer clamp bar 1 having sharp pointed threaded studs a and nuts 6, an inner clamp bar 2. having holes 0 for the studs a, and lugs cl having perforations c, and a helical spring 3 having terminals 7' connected to the perforated lugs (1 so that when the parts are together as in Figs. 2 and 3 the helical spring will form a clasp to receive and yieldingly hold the fountain pen.

The bar extends transversely to the axis of the clasp so that in the pen holding position the bar will be horizontal, thus givingan attractive and ornamental appearance to the only portion of the holder which is in view when the holder is attached to a garment.

A pin 4: is adapted to fit the holes 6 and the lugs (Z and the terminals f are coiled about said pin and are twisted together so as to hold the yielding ring 3 from being withdrawn from the inner clamp bar 2.

The only difference between the form shown in Figs. 5 and 6 and those shown in previous views is that the clasping member is shown as formed of two resilient limbs 5 which are pivoted to the lugs 12 of the bar 2 by the pin 4.

The clasping ring 3 as shown in Figs. 1-4 is soft and yielding and is not obtrusive.

The device as placed upon the market will be substantially as shown in Fig. 3 and the nuts I) are shown provided with thumb pieces 9 by which the nuts may be screwed into place. The studs a are sharp pointed so that they may be inserted through the material 6 of the pocket, and when the lugs are thus secured the bar 2 will be brought into place and the nuts screwed home.

The thumb pieces 5 are shown as loops that form guards for the sharp points of the studs.

The operation of inserting or withdrawing the fountain pen is obvious. When the bar is withdrawn the wire ring is drawn into the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2'and collapses as indicated in Fig. 5 but will readily receive the end of the fountain pen when it is desired to return it to its place. All of the figures excepting Fig. l are enlar 'ed for convenience of illustration. J

I c aim 1. Apocket holder for a fountain pen comprising a bar provided with studs adapted to be inserted through material of a garment; a bar provided with perforations to receive the studs; means to fasten the .per forated bar on the studs; and a resilient clasp connected to said perforated bar, and adapted to hold a fountain pen.

2. A pocket holder for a fountain pen comprising two bars; means for securing the bars together to clamp garment material; a clasp adapted to hold a fountain pen; and means connecting the clasp to one of said bars.

3.' The combination with a bar provided with lugs; of a pin connected to said lugs; a resilient ring connected to the pin and adapted to receive and hold a fountainpen; and means to fasten the bar to the material of a garment.

5L. A pocket holder for a fountain pen comprising abar provided with pointed threaded studs adapted to be inserted through material of a garment; a bar provided with perforations to receive the studs; nuts for the studs; said nuts being provided with guards for the points of the studs; and a resilient clasp connected to said perforated bar, and adapted to hold a fountain,

In testimon whereof I have hereunto set my hand at onolulu, 'lerritory of Hawaii, this8th day of March,- 1920.
