gmtoocHEs', ETC.

Joseph Fernandez, Newark, J. Application October 25, 1939, Serial No. 301,140

6 Claims. (G1. (Rh-31) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a moving mechanism for pins, brooches, etc.

. More specifically, the invention proposes the construction of a pin or brooch consisting of an ornament body having an opening into which a spring motor is adapted to be mounted to operate movable members.

Still further it is proposed to provide a supports for a picture connected with said spring motor in a manner to be moved thereby when the spring motor functions.

Still further it is proposed to provide an ornament body with a cam for controlling the path of movement of the support, and to provide the support with a picture adapted to cooperate with a complementary picture stationarily mounted on the body in a manner to give the appearance of a changing scene located within the brooch.

Still further it is proposed to provide a crystal mounted on said ornamental body in a manner to extend over and cover the pictures.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof. .reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure-- Fig. l is a partial eievational View of a person wearing a pin or brooch constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged elevational viewof the pin or brooch with the crystal removed.

, Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a view looking in the direction of th line 8-4! of Fig. 3.

Fig.5 is a developed view of the cam per se.

Fig. 6 is an enlarged perspective view of the clip mounted upon the support.

Fig. 7 is a view similar to Fig. 2 illustrating a modification of the invention with the crystal removed.

The moving mechanism for pins or brooches, according to this invention, includes an ornament body It having an opening w The ornament body Ill is substantially circular in form and is provided with a plurality of ornamental members Ill mounted upon the front face thereof.

These ornaments It", as shown, are in the form of flowers mounted on the face thereof or may be of any other desired construction. A conventional pin H is mounted across the back face of as follows:

the ornament body In for permitting the same to beengaged upon a persons dress I2 as shown in Fig. 1. This pin l I has one end pivotally mounted and the other end pointed and engageable with a veni'ently wound.

A support M for "a picture or the like is connected with the spring motor to be moved thereby. This support it is constructed of resilient spring metal and is substantially of U-shape and has one of its ends M connected to the rotative spindle of the spring motor 53.

A cam i5 is positioned between the adjacent edges of the springmctor i3 and the ornament body If]. It is provided with a cam groove [5 into which the free end of the support M is extended in a manner to control the path through which the support will move when rotated with the spring motor. The support M is further provided with a spring clip l6 for receiving and releasably holding. a picture W. In the form of the invention shown the picture i! takes the form of a moon which is adapted to move about the ornament body when the support i4 is rotated by the spring motor.

A complementary picture l8 in the form of a :country scene is releasably mounted within the ornament body Ill to the front of the support l4. This picture I8 has its edges releasably engaged into spring clips l9 mounted on the free peripheral edge of the cam l5. A crystal 20 is en: gaged over the outer edge of the cam l5 and is .releasably held therein in a manner to be removed for permitting the pictures I! and ill to be interchanged with other desired pictures.

The operation of this form of the invention is Thebrooch is positioned upon ones dress in a conventional manner and the spring motor I3 is wound through the medium of the rotatable stem When the spring motor becomes Wound it will cause the support M to rotate and the tail thereof which is engaged into the cam groove W will cause the picture ll mounted thereon to move forwards and backwards with respect to the spring motor I3. As the spring rotates the support M, the picture H, which is in the form of a moon, will be correspondingly rotated to cause the moon to rise at one side of the picture I8 and go down at the other side of--the picture. The cam groove Iii is so positioned with relation to the picture l8 that it will cause the moon I! to move slightly forwards when in the exposed positionand move backwards so as not to strike the picture i8 when moved into the retracted position.

In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 7 the construction of the moving mechanism for pins and brooches is similar to that previously described except for the shape of the ornament body Ill. ornament body It is hexagonalin shape and carries the cam l5. In other respects this form of the invention is similar to the previous form and similar parts may be identified by corresponding reference numerals.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as deplementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and a crystal covering said pictures.

'2. A moving mechanism for pins, brooches and the like, comprising an ornament body having an opening, a spring motor mounted in said opening, a support for a picture or the like connected with said spring motor to be moved thereby, a cam for controlling the path of movement of said support, a picture mounted on said support, a complementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and a crystal covering said pictures, said spring motor being provided ,with a rotative stem extending beyond the periphery of said ornament body for permitting the spring motor to be conveniently wound.

3. A moving mechanism for pins, brooches andv In this form of the invention the port, a

the like, comprising an ornament body having an opening, a spring motor mounted in said opening, a support for a picture or the like connected with said spring motor to be moved thereby, a cam for controlling the path of movement of said support, a picture mounted on said support, a complementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and a crystal covering said pictures, said support being constructed of resilient spring material and having one end attached to the rotative spindle of said spring motor and the other of its ends extended into a cam groove formedin said cam.

4. A moving mechanism for pins, brooches and the like, comprising an ornament body having an opening, a spring motor mounted in said opening, a support for a picture or the like connected with said spring motor to be moved thereby, a cam'for controlling the path of movement of said support, a picture mounted on said support, a complementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and a crystal covering said pictures, said support being provided with a spring clip for fixedly but releasibly holding said picture in position thereon to permit the picture to be inter-changed with other pictures.

5. A moving mechanism for pins, brooches and the like, comprising an ornament body having an opening, a spring motor mounted in said opening, a support for a picture or the like connected with said spring motor to be moved thereby, a cam for controlling the path of movement of said support, a picture mounted on said supcomplementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and a crystal covering said pictures, said complementary picture having its bottom edge releasibly engaged into spring clips mounted on the free edge of said cam so as to be inter-changed withother complementary pictures. 7

6. A moving mechanism for pins, brooches and the like, comprising an ornament body havingan opening, a spring 'motor mounted in said opening, a support for a picture or the like connected with said spring motor to be moved thereby, a cam for controlling the" path of movement of said support, a picture mounted on said support, a complementary picture stationarily mounted on said body, and .a crystal covering said pictures, said crystal covering being removably mounted so that it may be removed when it is desired to inter-change said picture and complementary picture with other pictures.
