Application April 14, 1947, Serlal No. 741,369
i 6 Claims. l
,The invention relates to aromatic ornaments used primarily for feminine personal adornment, such as earrings, bracelets, breastpins, shoe buckles. etc., although not necessarily restricted to this field of use. One object of the invention isto provide such an ornament with a perfume container carrying an artificial flower or the like that is secured thereto by the wick means which conducts the perfumery from the container.
Another object is to provide a novel lady's earring embodying a perfumery container, an artificialflower or similar ornament, and wick means for conducting perfumery from the container to the flower or the like.
A further object i to make novel provision for connecting the wick means with th container.
A still further object is to provide a novel construction in which the outer ends of twistedstrand wick-forming cords are at least partly untwisted and raveled to provide an ornament.
Another object is to provide a novel construction in which the outer ends of wick-forming cords are tied to an artificial flower to attach it to the perfumery container.
Yet another object is to provide a construction which may be expeditiously manufactured and profitably sold at a reasonable price.
Figure 1 of the accompanying drawing is a side elevation showing one form of the invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged vertical section on line 22 ofFlg. 1.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation showing a slightly different form of construction.
Fig. 4 is a side elevation showing another form of construction.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged vertical section on line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
In the form of construction shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, the numeral 6 denotes a one-piece hollow body of spherical or other suitable form, said body having a conventional clamp l or other ear-engaging attaching means. The top of the body 6 is formed with an opening 8, and the upper portions of a plurality of absorbent cords 9 extend through said opening. These cords are of twisted-strand form, preferably common woolen knitting yarn. The upper portions of the cords 9 extend above the body 6 and are unraveled and frayed as indicated at ill, to form an artificial flower or similar ornament. The body 5 is intended to contain a quantity of perfumery and the lower portions of the cords 9 act as wick to conduct perfumery to the ornament. Outward pullin of the cords from the opening 8 is prevented by providing each cord with a knot ll within the perfumery container.
In constructing the device, two or more lengths of the cord 9 are knotted at H between. their ends. The lower end portion of one cord is then poked through the openin 8 with a suitable small instrument, and its knot is also poked through said opening and forced some distance down beyond the top of the body 6. Another cord is then inserted in the same manner and if more are to be used, they are likewise inserted. Then, by taking hold of the outer ends of the cords, they are all pulled outwardlyuntil their knots are groupedat the inner end of the opening 8, in which position they prevent withdrawal of the cords from said opening. The outer end portions of the cords are then untwisted and more or less frayed to obtain the desired result, which result is preferably much more fiuffy, than indicated in the drawing.
If desired, a short tie i2 may be provided around the cords to rest upon the body 6, as seen in Fig. 3, overcoming any possibility whatever of any parts of the ornament working back into the perfumery container.
Perfumery may be injected into the body or container 6 with the aid of a medicine dropper, pressed down into the center of the ornament, or if desired a small filling opening may be provided as shown in Fig. 3 at to.
In Figs. 4 and 5, the container Ba is identical with the container 6, and two cords extend through the opening 8a and are formed with knots Ila corresponding to the knots II. The upper ends of these cords, however, are tied together at l3 around the central portion of an ornamental flower ill to secure this flower to the body or container 6a and to form an ornamental center for said flower. The cords 9a. in addition to firmly attaching the artificial flower to the container 6a, serve to conduct perfumery from said container to said flower. It is obvious that the cords may be passed through openings in the flower or wrapped around it or otherwise fastened to it. If desired, the flower I 4 may have a suitable stem l5 extending downwardly through the opening 8a.
While I have illustrated in the drawings the invention embodied in earrings, it will be understood that it may be embodied in bracelets, shoe buckles, and other ornaments whether they are to be. worn on the person or not.
From the foregoing, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, it will be seen that 3 novel and advantageous for carrying out the objects of the invention, and while preierences have been disclosed, attention is again invited to the possibility of making variations within the scope. oi! the invention as claimed. 1
I claim: a 1. An aromatic ornament comprising a periumery container having an opening, and. an artificial flower or similar ornament at'the exterior of said container, said ornament having provision hasbeen made a plurality of wicks extending through said opening and each having a knot. within'said container, said knots being disposed at the inner end of said opening and preventing withdrawal of said wicks from said opening.
2. An aromatic ornament comprising a periumery container having an opening, and an absorbent twisted-strand cord extending through said opening from the interior to the exterior of said container at least some of the strands at the outer end portion of said cord beinguntwisted and raveled to form an ornament, whereby said'cord forms both saidornament and a wick for conducting periumery to said ornament.
3. An aromatic device comprising a perfumery container having an opening, at least two absorbent twisted-strand cords extending through said opening from the exterior to the interior of said container, said cords having knots between their ends abutting said container about the inner periphery of said opening to prevent withdrawal end of said opening to prevent" withdrawal of said cords, and an artiflcial flowerat the exterior of said container, the outer ends oi! said cords being tied together around a portion of said flower, whereby said cords attach the flower to the container, form an ornamental center for the flower, and constitute wicks for conducting per- Iumery to said flower.
5.-A'method of producing an aromatic ornament comprising the steps of forming anopening' in a perfurmery container, tying knots between the ends of a plurality of absorbent cords, individually .poking one end oi! said cords and their knots through said opening, outwardly pulling the cords to'dispose all of the knots at the inner end 01 said opening, and unravelling the outer end portions of said cords to enhance the ornamental appearance thereof.
6. A method of producing an aromatic ornament'comprising the steps of forming an opening in a perfumery container, tying knots between the ends of a plurality of absorbent cords, 'individually poking one end or said cords and their knots through said opening, outwardly; pulling the cords to dispose all of theknots at the inner end of said opening, and tying an ornament to said container by means tions of said cords.
