This invention relates to a so-called clip brooch,
and has for one of its objects the formation of

Another object of the invention is the utiliza

for holding the clip in position against lateral
movement on the support.
Another object of the invention is the holding
of the clip in close relation to the garment to
prevent drooping of the brooch due to its weight.
With these and other objects in View, the in
vention consists of certain novel features of con
25 struction, as will be more fully described, and
particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

It has become popular in certain forms of
40
costume jewelry to provide units which may be
worn separately with some means for assem
bling these units so that they may be worn to
gether and manipulated as a single larger piece
45 of jewelry. A pair of so-called clips usually
form two of the units which may be worn sep
arately and various ways have been devised for
maintaining these clips in assembled relation.
The particular means which I have devised is
50 simple and positive and the assembly may be
manufactured inexpensively and yet perform
very effectively the operations for which it is
intended to thereby carry forward the objects
of the invention which have heretofore been set
55 forth, and the following is a more detailed de—
A short sheet metal
near closing, or tends to move the jaw to open 20
position when swung beyond a certain angular
position relative to the ornament or front jaw
of the clip. The back jaw is provided with
prongs 20 in spaced relation near one end and
prongs 2! in spaced relation about midway of 25
the clip for gripping fabric to which the clip
may be attached and is also provided with a
slot 22 near the hinge joint.
The supporting member consists of a body
portion 23 with narrowed arms 24 extending in 30
opposite directions from this body 23 and olfset
from the body 23 by the double bending of the
stock as at 25.
This body also has a securing or
supporting structure 26 offset from the body 23
by the double bending of the portions 2? which 35
connect these two parts together and are of a
length usually a little greater than ‘the offset
portions 25 so that the structure 26 is in a dif
ferent plane from the arms 24. A pin stem
joint 28 is supported at one end of this portion
26 for hingedly mounting the pin stem 29 while
the safety catch 30 is secured to the other end
of this portion 26 for holding the pointed end
of the pin stem 29 in locked position.
In order to assemble the clips I 53 upon the sup 45
port H the back jaw of the clip is swung open,
as illustrated in Fig. 8, and the arm 24 is passed
through the slot 22 so that the offset portion 25
lodges in the slot, after which the back jaw I6
is swung to closed position where it is maintained
by reason of the spring l8 and the jaw it forces
and holds the arm 24 against the front jaw or
ornament It to maintain it ?rmly in position
while the offset 25 by reason of its passing
through the slot, as illustrated particularly in 55

extend along either edge of the arm 24, see Fig.
4, so as to prevent any transverse movement of
the outer end of the clip with respect to the
outer end of the support arm and thus the
clips are ?rmly locked in position.
As the back jaw I6 is swung to closed position
about the oifset 25 ‘it cams the ornament in
10 wardly or away from the tip of the support arm
which is threaded through its back jaw, and
thus the ornaments are brought ?rmly into po
sition at their point of juncture 2| at their cen
ter. However, upon swinging the back jaw to
15 open position the reverse occurs and the orna
ments are initially moved or cammed away from
each other so that should any small stones be
set closely along the edge at the juncture 3|
they will be protected against being abraded or
forced out of their setting which might occur
by reason of a straight lifting of one ornament
with reference to the other away from the sup
port.
The o?'set of the pin supporting portion 26
25 serves to position the brooch assembly closely
against the clothing and maintains the brooch in
better appearing position than were it allowed
to droop away from the garment as migl t occur
from a sagging of the garment due to the weight
of the clips.
The foregoing description is directed solely to
wards the construction illustrated, but I desire it
to be understood that I reserve the privilege of
resorting to all the mechanical changes to which
the device is susceptible, the invention being de
I claim:
1. A clip brooch comprising a support member
having tongue portions, means to secure the
member to a garment, a pair of clips each having
an ornament and a back jaw hinged thereto, each
back jaw having an opening of a shape and size
to closely ?t a tongue portion and through which
the tongue of the support member may be passed 10
to extend along the jaw and be held between
the back jaw and the ornament.
2. A clip brooch comprising a support member
having tongue portions with offsets therein,
means to secure the member to a garment, a pair 15
of clips each having an ornament and a back jaw
hinged thereto, each back jaw having an opening
of a shape and size to closely ?t a tongue portion
and through which the tongue of the support
member may be passed to position the offset in 20
said opening with the remaining portion of the
tongue extending along the jaw to be held be
tween the back jaw and the ornament.
3. A clip brooch comprising a support member
having tongue portions, means to secure the
member to a garment, a pair of clips each having
an ornament and a back jaw hinged thereto, each
back jaw having an opening of a shape and size
to closely ?t a tongue portion and through which
the tongue of the support member may be passed 30
to extend along the jaw and be held between the
back jaw and the ornament, and prongs on the
back jaw to engage the edges of the tongue por
tions and locate the back jaw on the support.
