SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent NO. I788,221, dated April 25, 1905.
Application filed .Tilly 15, 1904. Serial No. 216,680. I
T (1J/Z whom, t may concern.-
Beit known that I, HENRY B. RICHARDSON,
a citizen of the United States, residing at Attleboro, in the county of Bristol and State of Massachusetts, have invented anew and useful Improvement in Bracelets, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has reference to an improvement in bracelets, and more particularly to an I O improvement in spring-bracelets.
The object of my invention is to improve the construction of bracelets, whereby a new f and novel effect in bracelets is produced.
A further object of my invention is to construct bracelets having' an artistic and expensive appearance at a lowcost of manufacture.
My invention consists in the peculiar and novel construction of a bracelet having a spring-band core in the form of a hoop with 2O overlapping ends, a flexible woven-wire tubular casing covering the core, and ornamental ends secured to the overlapping ends of the bracelet by solder or other means, as will be more fully set forth hereinafter.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved bracelet. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the spring-band forming the core of the bracelet. Fig. 3 is an enlarged face view of the flat woven-wire stock from which the tubular casing of the bracelet is constructed.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged end view of the wovenwire stock. Fig. 5 is an enlarged end view of the woven-wire stock, showing the iirst step in forming the flat stock into a tubular 3 5 casing. Fig. 6 is an enlarged end view of the completed tubular casing formed from the flat woven-wire stock, and Fig. 7 is an enlarged transverse sectional View through the tubular woven-wire casing and the springband forming the core of the bracelet.
In the drawings, t indicates the spring-band forming the core of the bracelet; the iiat woven-wire stock; the locking-coil; b2, the completed woven-wire tubular casing formed from the stock and c c the ornamental ends of the bracelet. The spring-band (t is in the form of a hoop, having the overlapping ends c ai',
as shown in Fig. 2. The Hat woven-wire stock is constructed by forming a wire into a screwcoil and screwing a series of the wire coils together, as shown in Fig. 3, forming a iiat woven-wire stock of any width or length desired. The fiat woven-wire stock is doubled lengthwise, as shown in Fig. 5, and formed into a tubular casing by screwing the lockingcoil Z2 into the coils forming the edge of the stock, as shown in Fig. 6. The spring-band c forming the core is now pushed into the woven-wire tubular casing (shown in Fig. 7) and the ornamental ends c c secured to the overlapping ends a a' by solder or other means.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. In a bracelet, the combination of the spring-metal band c and the flexible wovenwire tubular casing b2 constructed from the fiat woven-wire stock and the locking-coil b, as described.
2. In a bracelet, the combination of the springmetal band a, the flexible seamless woven-wire tubular casing b2 formed by interwoven coils of wire, and the ornamental ends c c, as described.
In testimony whereoflhave signed my name to this speciiication in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
HENRY B. RICHARDSON.
