7 Claims.

The invention relates to ornamental devices commonly known as shoe buckles, for enhancing the appearance of ladies shoes, and my principal object is to provide a novel construction which embodies a perfumery container, one or more artificial flowers, and wick means for conducting perfumery from said container to the flower or flowers.

A further object is to provide a novel construction which may be expeditiously manufactured and profitably sold at a reasonable price.

Figure 1 is a side elevation showing one form of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view.

Fig. 3 is an elevation at right angles to Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged vertical section on line 4-4 of Fig. t3.

Fig. 5 is a vertical section partly in elevation on line 5--5 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a side elevation showing a different form of construction.

Fig. 7 is an elevation at right angles to Fig. 6.

Fig. 8 is a top plan view.

Fig. 9 is an enlarged vertical section on line 9-9 of Fig. 8.

In the drawings above briefly described, preferences have been illustrated and While they will be rather specifically described, attention is invited to the possibility of making variations Within the scope of the invention as claimed.

In the form of construction shown in Figs. l to 5, a transversely arched base plate I is provided, having attaching ears I I for securing it upon the vamp of a ladys shoe. A perfumery container I2 is secured upon the base plate I0 and curves upwardly therefrom. The top plate I3 of this container I2 is provided with two eyelets I4 in the present disclosure and is formed with a central opening I between said eyelets. Over the two eyelets I4, I provide two artificial flowers IIS having stems I1 extending through said eyelets. Each flower I6 is attached to the container I2 by means of two absorbent cords I8 having an absorbent body I9 attached to their inner ends. These bodies I9 conduct perfumery by capillarity to the wick-like cords I 8, and these cords conduct the perfumery to the artificial flowers I6, the upper ends of said cords being tied together at 20, around the central portions of the iiowers.

A cup-like ornament 2|, which may well represent a buttercup, is secured upon the top plate I3 and is provided with a central nipple which projects downwardly into the opening I5, as shown at 22, said nipple being normally closed by means of a plug 23. When this plug is removed, perfumery may be readily injected into the container I2 with the aid of an eye dropper or the like.

It will be seen from the above that a very attractive shoe ornament has been provided, in which the wick-fonming cords I8 not only conduct perfumery to the artificial flowers, but attach said flowers to the container. These cords and the attached bodies I9 are preferably of the form disclosed in my co-pending applications Serial No. 741,369, led April 14, 1947, and Serial No. 760,362, filed July 11, 1947, but it is of course possible that the articial flowers could be connected with the perfumery container by other suitable wick-forming means, for example, that disclosed in my pending case Serial No. 757,961, led June 30, 1947.

In Figs. 6 to 9, inclusive, a transversely arched base plate Illa is shown for attachment to the vamp of a ladys shoe, one end of said plate being curved upwardly as shown at IIJb. A transversely arched top plate I2a overlies the base plate Illa and is disposed in diverging relation therewith, said plate I2a being soldered or otherwise secured to said base plate Illa and its upwardly curved end IUb, to provide a perfumery container. Two openings Illa andI 5a are formed in the plate I2b, said opening I5a being simply a lling opening through which perfumery may be injected into the container with a medicine dropper or the like. An artificial flower I6a overlies the plate I2a and is attached to the container by means of cords I8a and a body ISa corresponding to the cords I8 and bodies I9. The cords I8a extend through the openings I4a and are tied together at 20a around the central portion of the flower I6a.

In the construction shown, one end of the top plate I2a is provided with integral ears IIa for use in attaching the container to the shoe.

Fromthe foregoing, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it will be seen that novel and advantageous provision has been made for carrying out the objects of the invention, and while preferences have been disclosed, attention is again invited to the possibility of making variations within the scope of the invention as claimed. For example, I have shown in Fig. 5 two abutments I9 within the container I2 but it is obvious I may use a single abutment with four cords extending from it so that two may be passed through each eyelet I4 before the cover I3 is fastened to the top of the container in any f suitable way.

I claim:

l. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a perfumery container having a base of arched cross section for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, an upper portion of said container having an opening, an artificial flower at the exterior of said container, said flower having a stem extending into said opening in said container and wicks anchored in said container, said wicks extending through said opening in said container and tied to said ilower.

2. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a perfumery container having a base of arched cross section for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, an upper portion of said container having an opening, an artificial 'ower 'at the exterior of said container, and a wick extending from said ower through said opening into said container, said wick having an abutment within said container and preventing withdrawal of said wick from said opening, the outer end of said wick being tied to the central portion of said ower to attach said ilower to said container and to form an ornamental center for said flower.

3. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a transversely arched base plate for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, a perfumery container secured upon said plate and curving upwardly therefrom, said container having a top plate formed with a central filling opening and with two wick-receiving openings at opposite sides of said filling opening, two articial owers over said wick-receiving openings respectively, and two wicks extending from said flowers through said wick-receiving openings into said perfumery container.

4. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a transversely arched base plate 'for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, a perfumery container secured upon said plate and curving m upwardly therefrom, said container having a top plate formed with a lcentral lling opening and with two wick-receiving openings at opposite sides of said filling opening, two artificial flowers over said wick-receiving openings respectively, and two ,w

wicks extending from said iiowers through said wick-receiving openings into said perfumery container, said wicks having abutments within said container preventing withdrawal of said wicks, the outer ends of said wicks being tied to the central portions of said flowers to attach said owers to said container and to form ornamental centers for said flowers.

5. A structure as specied in claim 3; together with a removable plug normally closing said lling opening, and a ilower-simulating cup secured upon said top plate and having an ornamental side wall surrounding said plug.

6. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a transversely arched base plate for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, said base plate having an upwardly curved end, a transversely arched top plate overlying said base plate, said top plate being disposed in diverging relation with said base plate and being secured to said base plate and its upwardly curved end to provide a perumery container, said top plate having an opening, an articial ilower over said top plate, and a wick extending from said flower through said opening into said container.

7. An aromatic shoe ornament comprising a transversely arched base plate for anchorage upon the vamp of a ladys shoe, said base plate having an upwardly curved end, a transversely arched top plate overlying said base plate, said top plate being disposed in diverging relation with said base plate and being secured to said base plate and its upwardly curved end to provide a periumery container, said top plate having an opening, an artificial flower over said top plate. and a wick extending from said flower through said opening into said container, said wick having an abutment within said container and `preventing withdrawal of said wick from said opening, the outer end of said wick being tied to the central portion of said ower to attach .said flower to said container and to form an ornamental center for said ower.
