- Neck Scarf.

Patented March 1,1881.



tical section ot'the band on an enlarged scale;.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent: No. 238,406, dated March 1, 1881.

To (ZH'ICIIOIH it may concern Be it known that I \VILLIAM A. Lavnm'v, acitizen of the United States, residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented an liiiproyeiiien't in Xeekscai'ts. of which the following a specification.

The object of my invention is to overcome the inconvenience and loss of time caused by the usual method of marking titles on the neckbands ot' scarfs, and this object I attain in the manner lici'eiiiattcr set forth, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, in whicb- Figure 1 is a front view upon the band of which the title is applied in accordance with my invention Fig. 2, a veralso on an enlarged scale, be hand carrying the title. he usual method of nun-king the titles on the bands of necksi-arfs is to form said title, by printing,directly upon the silk or satin face of the band, tlie-1hinting-block being engraved, so as to print a background upon the band, leaviiv the silk or satin face of the latter exposed 0 form the desired letters. This plan is open to several objections, the serious of which is the inconvenience and loss of time occasioned, the printing'beiug usiially the last step in the finishing of the band, and being an operation requiring considerable time, so that more or less delay is always caused in pi'ittingthc seai-fs upon the market, owing to the time demanded in printing the titles on the hands after the scarfs are other wise cotiipletely finished.

Another objection to this method is that the hands are liable to be soiled or otherwise iii jnred while the title isbcing printed, or by the handling to which the'said hand is necessarily subjected.

and Fig. 3, a view,

I overcome these objections by printing the title on a stripot fabric separate from the band, these printed strips being backed with rubber her suitable adhesive medium capable ot being softened by heat, and of such an elastic character tliat it will withstand the Application filed November 11, 1580;

The title-strip can be removed from the band, the cement, so that when it is desired tochange the title of a scarf it can be readily done without discarding the iieckbaiid or a portion thereof, as usual.

Another advantage of this iiiet-liodzof applying the-title to the band is that the letters forming said title may be of a color di'fl'ercnt from that of the band itself, so that striking and artistic contrasts are possible. This result is atta-ined by using fabric forthe titlestrip differing in color from the fabric forming the face of the band.
