IDENTIFI CATION BRACELET Filed July 11; 1933 Patented Mar. 9, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE IDENTIFICATION BRACELET Sigmund L. Lederer, Providence, B. 1.

Application July 11, 1933, Serial No. 679,920

3 Claims. (Cl. 40156) My present invention relates to the jewelry art, and has particular reference to bracelet constructions.

Bracelet constructions comprising identification plates have been used on which identifying indicia have been stamped or engraved. These plates have no provision for photos, and do not lend themselves to ornamentation.

I have therefore devised a container construction which includes a base to which the bracelet ends are secured, and a cover which is hinged on the base and has a ring lock for retaining a photo or the like in the cover, both the base and the cover lending themselves to the inclusion of identifying indicia and of ornamentation.

With the above and other objects and advantageous features in view, the invention consists of a novel arrangement of parts more fully disclosed in the detailed description following, in

conjunction with the accompanying drawing,

and more specifically defined in the claims appended thereto.

In the drawing,

Fig. 1 is a plan view of the identification bracelet;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the container in open position;

Fig. 3 is a plan view of the container base;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the separated photo retaining elements and the cover; and

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the length adjusting closure link.

Referring to the drawings, the bracelet l0 includes a container ll, two link sections l2, I3,

and a closure link I 4. The container II has a base (5, preferably of stamped metal, and is provided with an end slot l6 to which one end of the link section I! is secured, as by a hinge link I1, and a second end slot l8 to which one end of the other link section [3 is secured by means of a hinge link IS, the metal adjacent the forward end of the slot l6 being struck up to form two ears 20 for receiving a hinge pin 2| passing through a base hinge 22 of the cover 23 formed by curling an extended tab.

The cover 23 is stamped out of sheet metal, and is cup shaped to receive a transparent sheet 24 of cellophane or the like and a lock ring 25, 50 whereby a photo or other thin article may be locked in the cover. A finger nail tab 26 is provided on the cover periphery to be engaged for lifting the cover, a spring latch finger 21 on the cover and a catch slot 28 on the base cooperat- 55 in: to releasably lock the cover in closed position; preferably, the base has an upstanding-portion 29 over which the cover fits snugly.

The bracelet sections are illustrated as formed of separate links hingedly connected together, but any suitable construction may be used. The 5 closure link I4 has a lower portion 30 which has its end 3| rolled to hingedly look over the end bar of one bracelet section, and has a plurality of wall recesses 32 to receive the end bar of the other bracelet section for length adjustment, 10., the upper portion 30a of the closure link being hingedly secured to the lower portion and folding over the said end bar of the other bracelet section to close the bracelet, the upper portion having its free end formed with spaced spring 15 fingers 33 to releasably engage the end 3| of the lower portion, a finger nail tab 34 being provided intermediate the spring fingers to facilitate opening of the closure link.

It is thus evident that a neat, attractive iden- 2t) tification bracelet is provided, with a container having a base which is provided with an upstanding portion that may be stamped or engraved, or highly polished if desired to provide a mirror, and a cover which is adapted to hold 25 a photo or the like; the outside of the cover lends itself to ornamentation, and may be enamelled or engraved; if desired, ornaments of any type may be secured thereto by welding or soldering. Instead of housing a photo, the container 30 may be utilized to hold a powder pad, rouge pad, or similar insert; if desired, a cake of powder or rouge may be retained in the cover, with a small loose applying pad.

While I have described a specific embodiment 35 of my invention, it is evident that desired changes in the form, the materials used, or the proportions of the parts, may be made to suit the preferences of the trade, within the spirit and the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims. 3

I claim: i

1. In a container device for a bracelet, a base of substantially flat sheet metal having two laterally extending ends each provided with slots for receiving the ends of a bracelet, an upstanding polished metallic disk soldered to said base intermediate the laterally extending ends, a cover hinged to said base and having a flanged edge and adapted to seat over said upstanding portion, and cooperating detachably engageable lock elements on said cover and base.

2. In a container device for a bracelet, a base of substantially flat sheet metal having two laterally extending ends each provided with slot! for receiving the ends of a bracelet, an upstaning polished metallic disk soldered to said base intermediate the laterally extending ends, spaced hinge ears on said base adjacent the upstanding portion, a cover hinged to said ears and having a flanged edge and adapted to seat over said upstanding portion, and cooperating detachably engageable lock elements on said cover and base.

3. In a container device for a bracelet, a base having an upstanding polished metallic portion presenting a substantially plane surface, a cover hinged to said base and having a flanged edge and adapted to seat over said upstanding portion, and cooperating detachably engageable lock elements on said cover and base, said cover having means for retaining an insert, and said base having means for receiving the ends of a bracelet.
