WINDSHIELD FOR THE FACE.
Application filed January Thi invention relates to a protecting device, such as a shield, and particularly to a shield adapted to be held in front of the face. As is well known, it is often very uncomfortable and actually painful to walk or drive against a cold wind and this is all the more true when there is sleet or snow driven by the wind. The part most affected by such a wind, sleet or snow is the face and it has been difiicult to adequately protect the face in such circumstances.
It is an object of this invention, therefore, to provide a simple and efficient means which can be comfortably and conveniently carried, both in operative and inoperative position, and which may also be made ornamental, for effectively protecting the face when walking or driving against the wind.
It is a further object of the invention to provide such a device or shield comprising a sheet of stiff material of curved oblong shape in plan, said sheet having a fabric covering thereon forming a pocket at the lower end of the sheet whereby the device may be held in operative position.
It is more specifically an object of the invention to provide a shield adapted to be carried in the hand and of a size and form adapted to cover the face, said shield pref-' erably being covered on both sides with soft fabric material and having an open-ended pocket at its lower end adapted to receive portions of the hand whereby the device can conveniently and comfortably be held in operative position, said shield also having a loop 01' other handle thereon by which it may be supported or carried when in in operative position.
These and other objects and advantages of the invention will be fully set forth in the following description made in connection with the accompanying drawings in which like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the different views, and in which,
Fig. 1 is a plan view of the rear side of the shield, showing the hand in the shield in dotted lines;
Fig. 2 is a vertical section taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 8 is a top view of the shield;
Fig. 4 is a section taken on the line 44: of Fig. 1, as indicated by the arrows; and
Fig. 5 i a section taken on the line 55 of Fig. 1, as indicated by the arrows.
Referring to the drawings, the device comprises a frame of sufficient rigidity and 8, 1926. Serial No. 79,980.
stiffness to retain its shape and also which will be somewhat flexible. While this form may be made in various ways, in the embodiment of the invention illustrated the same i 'shown as comprising a wire 6 bent, as
shown in Fig. 1, and having secured at each side thereof a layer of material such as stiff buckram commonly used by milliners. This buckram material forms a sheet 6. While this sheet and the frame may be of different shapes, in-the particular embodiment of the invention illustrated it is shown as of oblong shape or approximately pear shape in plan or, in other words, somewhat.
in the shape of a palm leaf fan.
The sheet 6, asillustrated, has a re-ent-rant curved portion 6 at its lower end. Said sheet 6 is provided on the rear side with a layer of fabric material 7 which is stitched to the edges thereof and while various materials may be used it i preferred that a soft closely Woven material, such as velvet, be used for this purpose. has a layer of fabric material 8 secured to the rear thereof superposed onthe layer of material 7, which material 8 is somewhat mitten-shape in plan and is secured at its edges to the layer 7 and to sheet 6, as clearly shown in Fig. l. The layer of material 8 preferably extends somewhat below the bottom of the sheet 6 to form a. wrist portion. The sheet 6 is also supplied onits front portion with one or more layers of material and in the embodiment of the invention, one such layer 9'is shown which is secured to the edges of the sheet 6 and the layer 9 also preferably extends down at the bottom of the shield coextensive with the layer 8. The layer 9 may be stitched at its.
edges by the same stitching holding the layer of material 7 and these layers will be stitched so that a neat and pleasing appearance is presented at the edge of the device. The stitching holding the edge of the layer 8 may also extend through the layer 9 so that this layer is secured to sheet 6 at points within the edge thereof. VVhile a wide range of materials may be used for the layers 8 and 9, they preferably will be made of some soft, warm or woolen material, such as heavy velvet, astrakhan cloth or fur and they will be of material which will have The device also a pocket adapted to receive the hand or the fingers of the hand and the layer of material 9 forms with the sheet 6 a pocket adapted to receive a portion of the hand, such as the thumb, as shown in Fig. 2, said pocket be ing opened at the lower end of the device.
so that the hand can be easily and conveniently inserted. A loop of flexible material, such as the cord 10, is secured at each side of the curved portion 6 by means of which the device may be carried or supported when in inoperative position.
In operation, the device may be held by inserting the hand in the pocket under the layer 8 or, in both pockets, as shown in Fig. 2, at which time the hand will be covered and will be in comfortable and protected position. The device may now be held by the hand in front of the face when advancing against the wind. The face is thus effectively protected and the device may be slanted or moved asideat necessary in tervals so that the person will see .where he is going. The layer of material 9 being of soft, warm material, gives a pleasing and very comfortable effect against the face. It
will be noted that while the device is being held in front of the face the hand is also adequately protected and kept warm. hen the device is not inoperative position it may be conveniently carried on the wrist or in the hand by means of the loop 10 or it may be placed on a suitable support by means of said loop.
The device is intended to be made in very ornamental form so that it will form a pleasing part of a ladys costume. It is also intended for the use of children in going to and from school and other places. When the device is made for men it can conveniently be made of a size that will fit in a large overcoat pocket so that it can be carried out of sight, except when in-use. As stated, the outer covering of the. device, particularly 'the front side, will be made of soft warm material, such as wool, fur or velvet and the whole device can be variously ornamented and decorated.
From the above description it is seen that applicant has provided a simple and highly efficient device and one having a high degree of utility. Walking against a cold wind, especially when there is sleet or snow in the air has long been a great discomfort. With the present device, this discomfort will be eliminated and the face, as well as the hand protected. The device has been amply demonstrated in actual practice and found.
to be very successful and efficient.
It will, of course, be understood, that various changes may be made in the form, cletails, arrangement and proportions of the parts without departing from the scope of applicants invention, which, generally stated, consists in a device capable of carrying outthe objects above set forth, in the novel parts and combinations of parts disclosed and defined in the appended claims.
