S/EGFR/ED BEHR BY ZA/Jf/ United States Patent Ofifice LADYS HAIR ORNAMENT Siegfried Behr, Flushing, N. Y. Application October 25, 1956, Serial No. 618,382

r 3 Claims. c1. 132-46) This invention relates to head ornaments and more particularly to a ladys hair ornament.

An important object of the present invention is to provide a ladys hair ornament that is not only ornamental but is adapted to serve as a holder for a plume, feather, spray of flowers or like ornamental element.

Another object is to provide a ladys hair ornament that is adapted to encircle the head of the wearer and serve as a holder for an ornamental element.

A further object of the invention in accordance with a modified form thereof is to provide a ladys hair ornament that is adapted to be pinned to the hair of the wearer and to serve as a holder for an ornamental element.

It is further proposed in accordance with still another modification of the invention to provide a ladys hair ornament in the form of a comb having a socket member for holding an ornamental element.

It is also an object of the invention to provide a ladys hair ornament of this character that is simple in construction, attractive in appearance and of varied utility.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the description thereof taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings wherein- Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a ladys hair ornament embodying one form of my invention. I

Fig. 2. is a vertical sectional view thereof taken on the plane of the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the plane of the line 33 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a front elevational view of a ladys hair ornament embodying a modified form of the invention.

Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view taken on the plane of the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a plan view looking along the line 66 of Fig. 5 in the direction of the arrows.

Fig. 7 is a front elevational view of a ladys hair ornament embodying another modification of the invention.

Fig. 8 is a similar view but showing the socket member in section cut through the vertical center thereof.

Referring to Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, showing the first form of the invention, the hair ornament comprises a body portion 5 of horseshoe shape composed of thin metal stock. The free ends of the body are preferably bent outwardly as indicated at 6 to facilitate entrance of the body over the head of the wearer.

At the longitudinal center of the body portion 5 on the top thereof, there is a horn-shaped or calyx-like shaped socket member 7, having sepal-like sections 8, secured to the top surface thereof by soldering as indicated at 9, or in any other suitable manner. The socket member 7 is disposed lying on its side and opening laterally and horizontally. A short tubular member 10 is soldered or otherwise fastened to the narrow or pointed bottom end of the socket member 7 and projects forwardly of the body portion 5. The outer end of the tubular member 10 supports a pronged setting 11 for an ornament in the form of a pearl 12.

In front of the horn-shaped socket member 7 a grille work 13 composed of three feather or leaf-like members 14, each member 14 including a midrib 15' and loops and curlicues 16, the sides of the members 14 being in overlapping relation. The grille work 13 is of substantially the same configuration in plan as the socket member 7, with the pointed end of the grille work soldered or otherwise fastened to the socket member 7. The grille work decorates the horn-shaped socket member. A plurality of stems 17 of metal are spread out fan fashion from the socket member 7 thereby forming a spray. The inner ends of the stems are secured to one of the sepal-like sections 8 at its outer edge, at the mouth of the socket member. The outer ends of the stems are formed with pronged settings 18 for jewels in the form of pearls 19.

The outer peripheral surface of the body portion 5 is preferably decorated with jewels in the form of rhinestones 20 mounted in substantially square-shaped settings 21 opening forwardly of the body portion 5.

The socket member 7 is capable of receiving and supporting an ornament such as a flower, plume or the like with its shank or stem protruding through an opening 22 formed in the pointed end of the socket member. The

flower or plume will be supported at an angle to the horizontal behind the spray of pearls 19 thus enhancing the appearance of the ornament and beautifying the head of the wearer.

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 4 to 6, inclusive, the horn-like or sepal-like socket member 7' is secured to one leg 24 of a bobby pin or hair pin 25, preferably the crimped leg of the bobby pin. In using this form of the invention, the legs of the hobby pin are separated and the smooth and long leg 26 thereof is inserted into the hair in the ordinary manner. In this form, the socket member 7 is disposed in an upright position for supporting an ornamental element such as a plume, flower or the like.

In all other respects, the form of invention shown in Figs. 4 to 6, inclusive, is similar to the form shown in Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, and similar reference numerals are used to indicate similar parts.

Referring now to Figs. 7 and 8, in this modification of the invention, the horn-like or calyx-like socket member 7" is mounted on and secured to the back portion 27 of a comb 28 by means of a tubular rivet 29 extending through one of the sepal-like sections 8" of the socket member and through the back portion of the comb. The socket member is disposed at an angle to the horizontal so that a plume or feather or other spray-like ornament supported therein will protrude at an angle.

In all other respects, the form of invention shown in Figs. 7 and 8 is similar to the form shown in Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, and similar reference numerals are used to indicate similar parts.

Changes in details of construction might be made without departing from the principle of the invention and I desire to be limited only by the state of the prior art and the appended claims.
