LoUIs ALBERT SAMSTAG, oF NEW Yoan,
BROS., I NC., OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
N.v Y., ASSIGNOR TO SAMSTAG 86 BILDER A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK HAND BAG Application led May 18,
- This invention relates to receptacles, andy has particular application to certain novel and useful improvements in ladies hand bags such as are commonly made of leather, cloth 5 or other flexible, pliable material.
As is well known, such are usually formed with a plurality lof compartments or pockets adapted for the reception and retention of various articles. For
one of the walls of the bag, usually the rear wall, may be provided with small pockets for holding combs, brushes, mirrors and similar toilet articles, while another section of the bag is provided with a large com 15 partment or pocket, usually coextensive with the length and depth of the bag, and this large pocket or compartment may be and 1S generally as money, documents and the like. Such large compartments, in the usual type of handbag, is formed with an open mouth, so that'when the main liap of the bag is open, the articles within the compartment or` pocket are exposed. At times, it happens that either by accident, or by design, as by the bag being surreptitiously opened by an unscrupulous person, while being carried by the owner, valuable articles are lost or stolen from this pocket.
One of the principal objects of the present invention therefore, is to provide a hand bag or similar receptacle wherein a section, pocket lor compartment for the reception of loose and valuable articles has the mouth portion thereobtain access to this compartment, it is necessary to operate a locking device in order to open the mouth of the compartments and to obtain access to the articles therein. Thus, although, as in the'case of the type of bag shown in the drawings, the outer flap may be opened, the compartment or pocket will remain sealed until the locking device. is deliberately manipulated to open the mouth of the compartment and to give access thereto.
, Another object of my invention is to provide a hand bag of this type, wherein the locking device extends longitudinally of and is positioned below the edge of the top of the bag proper, so that it willbe out of the ladies hand bags used for holding valuables, suchl of locked, closed or sealed, so that in order to .1927., Serial No. 192,219.
way, Land will not form an obstruction, but,
on the contrary, will allow free access to the compartment orpocket wall, presenting a neat, ornamental and attractive appearance. vllVith the above recited objects and others sists in the construction, combination and arrangement of par-ts set forth and falling within the scope of the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings- Fig. l is a perspective view of one type of bag embodying my invention, and showing the outer flap thereof in open position, with the locking device manipulated to par tially open and closed or locked compartment ofthebag;
Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the locking device in the position it occupies when the mouth of the bag is practically completely opened;
Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken of the when in its closed position.
will now proceed to describe in detail the l, a rear wall 2, and a flap or cover 3, adapted y to be fastened to the front wall of the bag as by the snap fastener 4. Preferably, though not necessarily, the front and rear walls and the flap are formed of a single piece of material, such as leather, the body of the bag being stitched along the vertical edges 5. f
A bag of the type shown herein is formed with two relatively large compartments or sections 6 and 7, substantially coextensive with the length of the bag. A lining section 8 of cloth, leather or other flexible material, is attached or stitched as at 9 to the liap, and then lining or backing said flap extends coextensive with and down along the rear wall 2 of the bag as at 9, and then is turned orl of a similar nature in view, my invention confasten, as by stitching or otherwise,
the bag by stitching or otherwise and is then carried downward and looped or folded as at 14 and then stitched as at 15 in face to face contactwith the ply 11, these two plies 1l and 15 forming the partition P between the large pockets 6 and 7. The rear wall of the bag may be provided with smaller pockets, as shown at 17, 18 and 19, for thereception of small articles, such as a purse, comb and brush, and mirror, as is usual in bags of this character.
The mouth of one of the compartments, for instance that shown at 7, is intended to be closed and locked throughout its length, preferably by means of a locking device comprising striplike interlocking members intended to be controlled by a slider. Such a locking device is shown as an entirety by the letter L, but the device itself forms no part of the present invention, being of a Awell known form. It is the application and positioning of the device to lthe mouth of the pocket and with relation to the body of the bag that is important in the present instance. It will be noted that the openv edge of the partition P formed of the plies 11 and 15 lies below the edge of the outer wall of the bag. And between the top edges of the plies 11 and 15 I one strip element or member 20 of the locking device L, while similarly between the lining section 13 and the outer wall 1 of the bag, but below the top edge of the outer wall, I fasten, by stitching or otherwise, the other strip element or locking member 21. These strip-locking elements 20 and 21 are, as is well known, adapted to be brought int-o interlocking engagement by means of a slider 22 manipulated or drawn by the small tab 23. When the mouth of the bag is closed as by manipulating the slider to bring the strip elements into interlocking engagement throughout their length, that is, throughout the length of the mouth of the pocket or compartment.4 both the interlocking strip members and the slider will lie below the outer edge of the front wall of the bag, and will be out of the way, so as not to interfere with access into the interior of the bag when the main flap is open. At the same time this slight interlocking device will completely close the mouth of the compartment or pocket to be locked or protected,
and therefore prevent the accidental or unauthorized opening of the same wit-hout the owner being aware of the same when the bag is being carried in ordinary use.
In the present instance I have shown the invention as applied to a multiple compartment bag provided with a closure flap, but it will be understood that it may be applied to other types of bags, for instance, what is known Vas an envelope bag, which comprises, as is Well known, practically two walls having a single compartment, the important feature of the invention being to have the interlocking strip and slide device for locking the bag lie below the upper edges or mouth of the bag so as to be concealed by the edges or mouth sections of the bag and at the same time not to interfere with free access to the bag.
While I have herein shown and described one particular embodiment of my invention, I wish it to be understood that I do not confine myself to all vthe precise details of con-4 struction herein set forth by way of illustration, as modification and variation may be made without departingfrom thev spirit of the invention or exceeding the scope of the appended claim.
What I claim is: A hand bag having parallel front and back walls, the back wall having an extension forming a closure flap adapted to overliethe upper portion of the front wall and to be connected therewith when inclosed position, an intermediate. partition extending 'longitudinally of the bag between the front and back walls and forming a compartment in conjunction with the front wall and a locking device associated with the top edges of the front wall and the partition forming the compartment and located below the top edges of the front wall and the partition, said locking device being adapted to be manipulated to seal the compartment throughout its length.
