DESIGN FOR A CONGRESS BOOT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 24,721, dated October 1, 1895. Application filed June 28, 1895. Serial No. 654,393. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, HENRY G. RICHARD- SON, of Merrimac, in the county of Essex, and THEODORE S. VERY, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk, Massachusetts, have invented and produced a new and original Design for a Congress Boot, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, is a specification.
The peculiarity which characterizes our design relates both to the shape of the shoe as a whole and to the surface appearance at the several parts of which it is composed. The shoe is of the type known as Congress, and it is high-cut-that is, the leg portion is prolonged well upwardly-and at its top the front and rear portions extend in upward curves reaching from side to side, the straps or loops being connected to such raised parts. The whole front and rear of the leg portion has, externally, the appearance of a heavy material, resembling a fine-felted fabric, in which no seam is visible. On the sides,between such front and rear portions, elongated gore-pieces, resembling a woven fabric, are seen, extendz 5 ing downwardly from the upper edge of the leg, beginning at the base of the upward curves referred to and running nearly par; allel with the outlines of the leg.
The proportions of the boot are very graceo ful, its height from bottom of the heel to top of the curved raised parts being about equal to the length of the foot.
We claim as our joint inventiou- The design for 3. Congress boot, substan- 35 tially as described and shown.
In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, on this 20th day of June, A. D. 1895.
