INVENTOR ATTORNEY T @FFTQE.

LEONARD CARELESS, OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA.

. PURSE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 17, 1918.

Application filed October 16, 1917, Serial No. 196,908.

owner.

The main object of the invention is to so construct a device of this character that the purse will be reliably secured at a plurality of points to the wearers leg so that should one attaching element become detached the other will hold and prevent loss of the purse.

Another object is to provide a purse of this character the attaching straps of which extend therefrom in planes at right angles to each other.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

in the accompanying drawings Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a womans leg with this improved purse shown applied,

' Fig. 2 is an enlarged side elevation of the purse and its connecting means, and

Fig. 3 is a horizontal section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

In the embodiment illustrated, the purse is shown attached to the leg of the wearer at two points above and below the knee respectively, so that should one of the encircling bands become detached, the other will operate to prevent loss of the purse.

The purse constituting this invention is shown in the form of a pocketlike retaining device 1 having a closure in the form of a flap 2 provided with a snap fastener 3. A leg encircling band 4: is secured to the outer face of the rear wall 5 of the pocket 1, said band being here shown composed of two sections 6 and 7 secured at one end by any suitable means to the rear face of the outer wall 5 of the pocket 1 as is shown clearly in Fig. 3. Theseband sections 6 and 7 are preferably constructed of straps of any suitable materlal, one of said sections at least being elastic, while the other may be inelastic if desired. Section 7 has a loop 8 formed at its free end with its terminal provlded with a clip 9 for adjustably connecting the end with the body of the strap section to vary the size of the band to adapt it to fit legs of different sizes. Secured to the loop 8 is a tab 10 preferably made of leather and having a slot 11 extending transversely thereof through which the loop 8 is passed. This tab 10 is equipped with one member of a snap fastener 12 which is designed to engage a cooperating snap element 13 carried by the free end of the section 6 as is shown clearly in Fig. 3 and by means of which the band may be readily connected to or removed from the wearers leg without necessitating the passage of the foot therethrough.

An attaching tab or flap 14 is carried by the upper end of the pocket 1 as is shown clearly in Figs. 1 and 2 and has a slot 15 extending longitudinally thereof and through which is passed one end of a strap 16. This strap 16 is preferably composed of a leather portion 17 and an elastic webbing portion 18 seamed together as shown at 19. The free end of the leather strap 17 is folded upon itself to form a loop 20 which is passed through the slot 15 in the tab 14 and is adjustably connected with the body portion of the strap by a clip 21 such as is ordinarily used for this purpose. The free end of the elastic webbing strip 18 is secured to a leg encircling band 22 which is designed to fit around the wearers leg above the knee as is shown clearly in Fig. 1. This band or garter is here shown composed of connected leather and elastic webbing strips 23 and 2 1, respectively, although obviously it may be made entirely of one material if found desirable. The leather strip 23 carries at its free end a snap fastening element, not shown, with which cooperates a complementary element 25 which is carried by a tab 26 having a slot 27 extending transversely thereof through which passes the free end of the elastic webbing strip 21 which is folded upon itself to form a loop 28 and provided with a clip 29 for adjusting the size of the band.

From the above description it will thus be seen that this improved purse may be worn by persons having different sized legs and be reliably secured at two points preferably above and below the knee of the wearer and the strap which connects the two encircling bands at and 22 may be adjusted to vary the distance between the two bands.

From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the advantages of the construction and of the method of operation will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art to which the invent-ion appertains and while I have described the principle of operation of the invention together with the. device which I now consider to be the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that the device shown is merely illustrative and that such changes may be made as are within the scope of the claimed invention.

1 claim A purse of the class described comprising a pocket having a flap closure and an attaching flap at its upper end, said attaching flap having a slot extending longitudinally thereof and transversely of the purse, a strap passed through said slot, an endless band secured to and extending at right angles from the free end of said strap and another endless band secured to the back of said purse whereby the purse is held against longitudinal and lateral movement and loss thereof prevented should one of the bands become disconnected from the purse.

In testimony whereof I atfix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
