Application filed January 28, 1886. Serial No. 190,142.

(No model.)

, To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, JOHN P. SCOLLAY, a citizen ofthe United States. and a resident of Lawrence, county of Essex, Commonwealth of.

Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a Cover for Shielding Harness-Buckles, of which the following specification, with the drawings annexed, gives a clear and exact description, such as will enable others skilled in the branch to which this pertains to make and use the same.

My buckle-cover is intended to protect the buckles on any part of the'harness where the horses tail or inane is liable to catch in an open buckle. It may also be attached to any part of the harness as an ornament, and can be niade from any metal desired.

Figure I is a perspective view of the cover. Fig. [I is a top view, and Fig. III an under side view, of the cover. Fig. IV is a perspective view showing a strap and buckle inside of the cover.

A is the outer crest or' surface of the cover.

B is an opening for the strap to go th rough.

O is the space at the opposite end for the strap,having in it an opening. D, for the tongue Z of the buckle L to set into it. Otherwise the tongue would rest against the rim, and thus cause the opposite end of the cover to chat'e the horse.

E E are clips or catches, fastened to the rim on each side, (shown erect in Fig, 1,). which are to be bent over the strap or buckle, as seen in Fig. III, to prevent the cover from chafing on either the strap or buckle. or from moving in either direction on the buckle.

F F are side bars or rims connected at one end, and which, together with the crest A, f.

conceal the buckle L entirely. H is the middle part of the crest or cover, between the slots K K. This narrow part may be lower than the general surface of the crest A about a sixteenth of an inch, and the depression can be filled with hardened rubber or any other composition which may be desired for the purpose of ornamentation. The holes h h are to receive and hold the rubber or other substance.

L is the buckle shown inside of the cover in Fig. IV.

1 c1aim A A buckle-cover having the side piece,F, with one end open for the reception of the tongue of a buckle, and openings B and G for the strap, and the crest A, having the slots K K and the intermediate space, H, for ornamentation, substantially as described.

In witness whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal this 23d day of December, 1885.
