TIE HOLDER Filed Feb. 1'7, 1948 INV ENTOR.

am tangy Patented Oct. 16, 1 951 STATES OFFICE TIE HOLDER Island Application February 17, 1948', Serial No. 8,954

4- Claims.' (01. 24-49) The present invention relates to the jewelry art, and has particular reference to a novel tie holder construction.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a tie holder having a base and a swingingly movable ornamentation adapted to releasably receive a tie therebetween.

Another object of the invention is tov provide a tie holder with a base having ornamental elements swivelly mounted on the ends thereof.

A further object is to provide a tie holder base having ornamental elements swivelly mounted thereon and, with stop'el'ements for limiting turning movement of the ornamental. elements.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a" tie holder base with an ornamental element swingingly mounted on the base and movable in a plane spaced from and substantially parallel to the plane of the base- Another object of the invention is to provide a tie holder base with an ornamental. element swing'i'ngl'y mounted on one end of the base in spaced relation thereto and selectively turnable in a plane parallel to the base to uncover the base and to overlie thebase. I 7 h 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 drawings, and more specifically defined in the claims appended thereto.

In the drawings:

Fi 1 is a view of an illustrative embodiment of the invention, disclosing the appearance when mounted in tie holding position;

Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1, one ornament part being shown in turned position to uncover the base;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional detail on the line 33 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a section on the line 44 of Fig. 3;

Fig. 5 is an exploded view of the base, one ornamental element, and a connecting rivet; and

Fig. 6 is a side View of the base.

It has been found desirable to provide a tie holder with movable ornamental end elements, selectively swingable between fixed stops on the base to overlie the base and to uncover the base so that a tie may be positioned on the base and the ornamental end elements swung to lock the tie between the ornamental end elements and the base. Preferably, the ornamental end elements are in separated relation when overlying the space, and the parts are provided with projection'sof ribs, toslightly bulge the tie portion between the separated ornamental end elements.

Referring to the drawings the novel tie holder iii" incli' des a bas'e lfl preierablyof stamped metal',whijch has a shirt hem clamp [2 adapted to re'leasa'bly grip ashirt hem for mounting thetie holder in tie receiving position, the preferred clamp being of resilient metal stamped from the stock of the base It; and having a bend I 2 and a tongue it reversely curved at the forward end to facilitate insertion of a shirt hem between the clamp and. the base ll.

Each end i l of the base is provided with a rivet opening it and two upstanding edge loss it, ll spaced as illustrated to function as limit stops as hereinafter explained. An ornament carrier. 18;. see Fig. 5, is provided with a tab l9 of a'rcuate' forrn," having a rivet opening 20, and

has upstanding portion 20c and a unsupport 2 in parallel spaced relation tothe tab [9, a carrier being swingingly or swivelly mounted on eachbase end M by means of a: swivel rivet 22; as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. In this position; the upstanding portions 23a of the carrier are positioned between the lugs l6, [1; selective swinging movement of the carrier and ofan ornament 23 soldered or otherwise secured thereon may be manually accomplished from a position in spaced overlying relation to the base, as shown in Fig. 1 to a, position uncovering the base, as shown in Fig. 2, and back.

The ornaments 23 are preferably of a size to extend towards each other in separated relation when aligned with the base, to permit the tie to be visible therebetween, and thus simulate the appearance of an elongated ornament which has pierced the tie. This simulation is enhanced by positioning projections or ridges on the base or the ornaments or ornament carriers to slightly bulge or distort the tie, and a preferred construction for this purpose consists of lugs 24 struck up from the stock of the baseand positioned beneath the inner portions of the ornaments 23, sufficient space being provided, however, to prevent objectionable clamping of the tie material therebetween.

The operation of the novel tie holder is now clear. The tie holder is mounted on a shirt hem by passing it between the clamp 12 and the base; the ornaments and their carriers are now swung upwardly until stopped by the upper limit lugs, as shown in Fig, 2, and the tie positioned on the base between the ends thereof; the ornaments and their carriers are now swung back against the lower limit lugs to become aligned 3 and in spaced overlying relation to the base, whereupon the lugs 24 cause the tie to bulge Slightly and the ornaments simulate the appear ance of a solid ornament which has pierced the tie.

Although I have described a specific embodiment of the invention, it is obvious that changes in the size, shape and arrangement of the parts may be made to suit the requirements for different tie holder constructions, without departing from the spirit and the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a tie holder, a base, a shirt hem clamp secured to said base, and an ornament carrier mounted on one end of the base for swiveling movement in parallel relation to the base, said base having an upstanding projection positioned to be beneath the ornament carrier when the carrier is in alignment with the base.

2. In a tie holder, a base having a rivet opening adjacent each end thereof, two ornament carriers each having a tab with a rivet opening, rivets swivelly mounting the carrier tabs to the base ends for movement of the carrier tabs in parallel relation to the base, and ornaments secured to said carriers and movable to positions to extend over the base and to uncover the base, the ornaments being of a length to be spaced apart when in alignment with the base, said base having stop elements adjacent the carrier tabs for limiting the swiveling movement of the ornament carriers.

3. In a tie holder, a base having a rivet opening adjacent each end thereof, two ornament carriers each having a tab with a rivet opening, rivets swivelly mounting the carrier tabs to the base ends for movement of the carrier tabs in parallel relation to the base, and ornaments secured to said carriers and movable to positions to extend over the base and to uncover the base, the ornaments being of a length to be spaced apart when in alignment with the base, said base having stop elements adjacent the carrier tabs for limiting the swivelling movement of the ornament carrier to selectively position an ornament 4 on said carriers in spaced alignment with or at substantially right angles to the base, said base having upstanding projections positioned to be beneath the ornaments when in alignment with the base.

4. In a tie holder, a base having a rivet opening adjacent each end thereof, two ornament carriers each having a tab with a rivet opening, rivets swivelly mounting the carrier tabs to the base ends for movement of the carrier tabs in parallel relation to the base, and ornaments se= cured to said carriers and movable to positions to extend over the base and to uncover the base, the ornaments being of a length to be spaced apart when in alignment with the base, said base having stop elements adjacent the carrier tabs for limiting the swivelling movement of the orna merit carrier to selectively position an ornament on said carriers in spaced alignment with or at substantially right angles to the base, said base having upstanding projections positioned to be beneath the ornaments when in alignment with the base, said stop elements comprising bent up lugs on said base.
