ABRAHAM I. LEWIS, OF NEVIARK, NEW JERSEY.
Application filed May 26, 1925. Serial No. 33,014.
To (ZZZ whom it may concern:
lie it known that I, ABRAHAM I. Lnwis, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved Ornamental Button, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to ornamental buttons for garments and for other purposes where an ornamental member is desired, the. object being to provide a construction which will disclose a button structure with a stone or other ornament thereon while at the same time jin'esenting means for readily connecting the button structure by stitches to the garment.
Another object of the invention is to provide an ornamental button wherein a socket is provided which is adapted to receive threads in order to connect the button to a garn'ient and also will act to receive an ornament.
A further object oi the invention is to provide an ornau'iental button wherein means are provided for supporting a jewel on the button and also means are provided for receiving a stitching in such a manner that the same cannot be seen from the exposed face of the button.
in the accompanying drawing--- :lllgljUC l a plan view of the button, dis- (lo 'ug an embodiment of the invention.
ilflgure 2 is a rear view of the :button shown in Figure 1.
Figure 8 is a sectional view through Figure 1 on line 33, part of a garment being shown in connection therewith.
Figure at is an elevation of an article of wearing apparel with several buttons emdying the invention applied thereto for trating their appearance when in use.
P ferring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, 1 indicates the body of the button which may be of any desired kind, as for instance, what is commonly known as a pearl button. This button is provided with an aperture 2 in which a socket member 3 is mounted, the same being normally known as a socket. This socket member is provided with either a prong or an annular structure 4 acting to hold the stone 5 in place. Heretofore, structures of the kind just described have been provided but in order to connect the button 1 to a garment, apertures were required in the button in order that the ing from the bottom and this tubular extension is closed at the end so that when it is cut at two points the members 8 and 9 may be bent in opposite directions and the central portion may remain as the members 6 and 7. After the parts have been assembled as shown in Figures 1 and 2, the completed button may be stitched onto the garment 10 by suitable stitching 11. It will be noted that the stitching 11 cannot be seen from the front face of the button but an ample amount of thread may be used for securely connecting the button to the garment.
As indicated in Figure 4-, a certain form of wearing apparel is shown with four buttons thereon but it will be evident that the buttons may be used. on any form of garment and also any number may be used and grouped in any desired manner. In addition to presenting merely ornamental structures as shown in Figure 4:, the buttons could be used for useful purposes and in connection with buttonholes. lVhen viewed from the frontfas shown in Figure l, the stitching 11 cannot be seen and, consequently, a very pleasing appearance is given to the button.

1. An ornamental button for garments, comprising a button body, a socket formed in said body and a jewel mounted in part 01 said body, said socket being provided with clamping members whereby the same is clamped to said button body, and a bar arranged opposite the jewel, said bar being adapted to receive threads when theibutton is sewed in place on agarment.
