,f over as at 45 to clinch forcefthe ornamental ply of spur, as illustrated in theme is had between the ornament and the remainder of the shoe such as is desired in the trade, and the following is a detailed description of the present embodiment of this invention illustrating the preferred means by which these advantageous results may be accomplished.
With reference to the drawing, 2i) designates a pump or slipper having a heel 2l and ornamental trimming strips 22 on the body portions of the slipper with similar ornamental strips 23 adjacent the toe thereof, while on the vamp I have mounted an ornament designated 24 having a central ornamental portion 25 and a portion of a bow 26 with additional trimming 2'? and have formed the portions 22, 23, 25 and 26 all of a similar embossed leather so that the entire ornamental theme of the shcewillvbe carried out even in the ornament which I have provided.
This ornament designated generally'24 consists of a body' 28 having an open face 29 with a flange 30 extending rearwardly from the face of this body. Within this body, I have positioned an ornamental layer orlsheet 3l which is here illustrated as embossed leather which is of a size larger than the opening 29 in the face of the body and is of a size to t within the ange 3i). Back of this ornamental layer 31 there is positioned a'metal plate of relatively vstiff material designated32 which is domed or bulging as at 33 and which will force the leather sheet 31 out-` wardly so as to conform generally to the shape of the plate 33 and thus extend through the opening as ati34, see Fig. l5.
Back of this plate 33 there is provided a wall or plate 35'which may be of cardboard or any suitable material, which if soft will be easy to work, it being merely required that it be suiiciently stiff and rigid to maintain its general shape. This securing plate is of substantially the f size and shape of the body to snugly fit within the flange 30, and is provided with an opening 36 to receive the socket part of the fastening device.
The socket part of this fastening device con-- sists of a tubular eyelet 37 rolled outwardly at one i end to provide a flange 38. Upon this flange and extending across the end of the eyelet there is a diaphragm 39 havingan opening 40 with slits 41 extending outwardly therefrom in a generally, radially direction. This diaphragm is of stiff tempered material such as steel and these slits provide gripping fingers 42. This diaphragm is held in position across the end of the tubular eyelet by a cap 43 having an opening 44 therein of a size larger than the opening and rolled the cap in place and hold the diaphragm tightly in position.
This socket is positioned through the opening 36 in the securing plate with the cap part 43 env gaging the outer surface thereof after which Y the tubular part is rolled over as at 46 to secure this part of the socket in position. The securing plate is then positioned back of the domed or shaping plate 33 and the flange 30 is rolled over as at 4'7 to lock all of these parts in position and embossed leather outwardly, as illustrated in Fig. 15.
- The ornament thus assembled may be then mounted either directly on the shoe or upon some additional ornamental part by means of a tack or spur 48 having a head 49. For instancaas shown in Fig. l, there is a bow piece of material 27 and a second piece of material 26, both posi-l tioned back of the ornament 24 with the fabric of the shoe 20 also back of the ornament, while the Fig. '16, is passed through all of these parts and into the socket to spread the gripping fingers 42, as illustrated at 50, in Fig. 2, so that these will tightly grip and bite into the spur 48 to prevent it from being withdrawn from position and thus lock all of these parts shown in Fig. 2 in assembled relation.
In some instances, it is desired to provide a duplication of the parts 26 and 2'? on the other side of the ornament and I have illustrated this generally in Figs. 17 and 18 by part 51 corresponding to the part 27 and a second part of the bow 52 corresponding to the part 26 of the ornament shown in Fig. l. These parts 51 and 52 are assembled with an elastic strap 53 by means of the spur 43 and its head 49 to hold the ornament 54 as an assembled unit with these parts describedafter which this ornament may be secured toa .shoe in an accustomed manner by just stretching the elastic strap 53 tothe edges of the body of the shoe and there attaching it these arrangements a shoe maybe complctelyV finished and the ornament positioned in piace by simply inserting a tack through the shoe and forcing the spur of the tack into the diaphragm assembly on 'the ornament also formed as a complete unit and assembled onthe shoe, and by 'the socket being provided in the ornament the spur is completely housed, therein leaving no parts to abrade the garment of the wearer or parts of the body.
The foregoingy description is directed solely towards the-construction illustrated, but I desire it to be understood that I reserve the privilegeof resorting to all the mechanical changes to which thev evice is susceptible, the invention being Clefined and limited only by the terms of the appended claims.
