Oct. 30, 1962 A. L. MONGELLI NECKTIE ORNAMENT Filed July 27, 1960 Fastest:

3,6tl,443 NECKTHE @RNAfdENT Anthony L. Mongelli, 2l2-57 Jamaica Ave, Queens Village, NFZ. Filed duly 27, 1960, Ser. No. 45,6611 1 Claim. (Cl. 215ti) This invention relates to a necktie ornament.

An object of the invention is to provide an ornament adapted to be applied to a four-in-hand necktie in the region of the usual knot.

Another object of the invention is to provide a necktie ornament which approximates the usual shape of the knot of a four-in-hand tie and is of tubular formation for receiving the ends of the necktie therethrough adjacent the collar.

A further object of the invention is to provide an ornament of said character with inwardly directed rear wall portions having recesses at the upper and lower ends thereof and which wall portions are disposed in spaced relation so as to permit of the convenient insertion of the ends of the necktie through the space therebetween for applying the ornament to the necktie and with the edges of the necktie extending outwardly through said recesses for retaining the ornament in position thereon.

Another object of the invention is to provide a novel necktie ornament which may be readily attached to and removed from the necktie and which avoids the necessity of making the usual knot in the necktie adjacent the collar.

With the foregoing and other objects in View, reference is now made to the following specification and accompanying drawings in which the preferred form of the invention is illustrated.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a front view of a necktie ornament constructed in accordance with the invention and shown in position on a four-in-hand necktie which is fragmentarily illustrated.

FIG. 2 is a rear view of the ornament in position on the necktie and showing the loop in the necktie.

FIG. 3 is a side view of the ornament.

FIG. 4 is a top plan view thereof.

Referring to the drawings, the necktie ornament is so constructed and arranged that the same may be readily applied to and removed from a four-in-hand necktie and is adapted to be disposed at the position of the usual knot adjacent the collar.

The ornament consists of a tubular shell of downwardly tapered formation approximating the shape and size of the usual four-in-hand knot and includes a forward wall of arcuate formation in cross-section, arcuate opposite side walls 11 and 12 and rear wall portions 13 and 1 1 extending inwardly from the side walls 11 and 12 with the confronting edges 15 and 16 thereof disposed in spaced relation providing an opening therebetween through which the tie ends A and B are inserted to dispose the ornament in position on the necktie with the free ends of the necktie protruding downwardly therethrough. As shown in outline in FIGS. 1 and 2 0f the drawings, the ends A and B of the necktie are looped together at C at the front of the collar (not shown) with the end A representing the large end of the necktie while the end B represents the small end thereof located at the rear of the end A. The ornament extends about the necktie ends A and B at the location of the loop C which is disposed therein in uncreased or uncrumpled condition.

In order to retain the ornament in position on the necktie so as to prevent downward sliding thereof, the curved side walls 11 and 12 are provided with upwardly extending recesses 17 and 13 at the lower ends of the rear wall portions 13 and 14. This permits of the necktie ends dflhhflit Patented 0st. 30, 1%52 ice A and B protruding in flattened formation through the lower end of the ornament with the side edges thereof extending laterally through the recesses 17 and 18. The ornament is also provided with recesses 19 and 20 in the curved side Walls 11 and 12 respectively which extend downwardly from the upper edges of the front wall 10 and the rear wall portions 13 and 14 and through which extend the necktie ends A and B from the upper portion of the loop C. Thus, the necktie ends protrude from the upper end of the ornament in flattened unrumpled condition.

In order to accommodate the loop C within the ornament without crumpling or mussing the same, the rear wall portions 13 and 14 are formed with recesses 21 and 22 adjacent the upper ends thereof which extend outwardly from the inner edges 15 and 16 of said wall portions. This forms inwardly directed tongues 23 and 24 above the recesses 21 and 22, which tongues are curved rearwardly so as to accommodate the large upper portion of the loop C and which permit of the bulging of the loop C rearwardly through the recesses 21 and 22. The protrusion of the loop portion C through the recesses Z1 and 22 and the side edge portions of the necktie ends A and B through the recesses 17 and 18 retain the ornament in position on the necktie and the necktie ends in flattened condition at the loop C and in protruding relation from the ornament.

There is thus provided a necktie ornament which may be made of any desired material such as metal or syn thetic plastics and the like and which avoids the necessity of making the usual knot in the necktie.

While the preferred form of the invention has been shown and described herein, it is to be understood that the same is not so limited but shall cover and include any and all modifications thereof which fall within the purview of the invention.

What is claimed is:

In a necktie ornament, a hollow tubular shell open at the top and bottom and of downwardly tapered formation and having a downwardly tapered front wall of arcuate shaped formation in cross section, curved side walls of U shaped formation in section and inwardly directed rear wall portions which are spaced apart at their inner ends to provide a space therebetween for the insertion of the end of a necktie for applying the shell thereto with the end of the necktie extending through the bottom opening in the shell, said shell having recesses between the front wall and rear wall portions at the upper and lower ends thereof through which protrudes the side edge portions of the necktie at the top and bottom of the shell for retaining the shell in position on the necktie and permitting of the ends of the necktie being disposed in flat formation, said rear wall portions having recesses extending laterally from the inner edges thereof respectively to thereby provide inwardly directed tongues at the upper ends of said rear wall portions with the top edges of said tongues being disposed substantially on a level with the top edge of said front wall, and said tongues flaring rearwardly at the inner ends thereof to permit of the bulging of portions of the necktie rearwardly through said laterally extending recesses, and said rear wall portions being relatively shorter in length from the top to the bottom thereof than said front wall and terminating at their lower edges in spaced relation from the bottom edge of said front wall.
