SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 11,790, dated May 25, 1880. Application ilcd February 2B, IHRU. Term of patent T years.

To all whom 'it may concern Be it known that l, EDWARD F. SEERY, a citizen oll the United States, residing at Providence, in the county oi' Providence and State of Rhode Island, haveinven ted and produced a new and original Design for Ornamental Chain-Links, of which the following is a specication, reference beingr had to the accompanying drawings, 'forming' part thereof.

Figure l is a side View of a chain-link in which a loop made otl a metal strip has a spiral wire inelosed between the loop, two eonnecting-rings scoured one ateach end, and two rings, one near each end, surrouiuling the loop. Fig. 2 is a side View ot' the loop provided with two rings, one near each end, and two connecting-rings. The loop is shown oruamented on the sides. Fig. represents a loop like the loop shown in Fig. 2, twisted one-rpiarter turn, so that the two conncctingrings are turned in Opposite directions. Fig. 4is a viewoli' a chainlink like the one shown in Fig. l., ditl'ering only in the proportions, the link being" shorter and the rings, near the ends ol' the loops, wider than those shown in Fig. 1.

In the drawings, fr representsahmpof metal the sides of which are ornalnented, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3. bis a twisted wire. It may be a beaded wire or other round filling-piece, and may be colored dil'erently from the rest of the link to produce a good el'ect.

c c are two rings or circular sleeves placed over the ends of loop a, so as to let the semicireular end of the loop project beyond the same, and so as to hold the loop ay against the central core, b, and which core extends into the rin gs c c.

o d are small connecting-riugs, by means ci' which the links are connected to form a chain.

Various effects may he produced bym-airing' 4o the rings c c wider or narrower, :is also by col oring.;` the diflerent parts in di'lierent shades, as also in makingl them of dili'erent metals. A goed ei'cct is produced by twisting,` the links, as is shown in Fig. 5.

Heretoiore ornamentalchain-links have been made of loops of Wire inelosing,` a twisted or beaded center, and square sleeves were placed near the ends ofthe loops. In such chain-links the central core of twisted or formed too prominent a feature of the design.

By using' astripof metal oruamcnted on the sides, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, nud placingr rings or circular sleeves ncnr each end nl the beaded wire 5o loop, a tine and ornan'lental cll'cct is produced. 55

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The design for au ornamental chain, consisting in the ornamental band forming' a., the central core, b, the rings e c, surrounding' the loop near its ends, and the rings d d, substantially as described, and shown in the accompanying drawings.

In Witness whereof I have hereunto affixed 6 my name.
