CASE FOR OPHTHALMIC MOUNTINGS Filed April 24, 1953 l HHK y V dwgyd L Boyes Patented Mar. 26, 1935 'PATENT OFFICE 1,995,664 CASE FOR OPHTHALMIC MOUNTINGS Edward J. Boyes, Flushing, N. Y.,assignor to American Optical Company,

Southbridge,

Mass.,n a voluntary association of Massachusetts Application April 24, 1933, Serial No. 667,605

5 Claims.

This invention relates to improvementsin cases rfor ophthalmic mountings and has particular reference to a case for holding a folding type mounting having a chain retaining member 5 thereon, and the method of making said case.

One of the principal objects of the invention is to provide a relatively flexible type of case of the above character having a compartment therein for holding the mounting and a separate compartment for holding the chain member so that the said chain member will not become entangled with the mountingor cause injury to the lenses of said mounting.

Another object is to provide novel means of closing the separate compartments to seal the mounting and chain therein.

Another object is to provide improved means and methods of making cases of the above character.

Another object is to provide novel means of reinforcing a case of the above character and of simultaneously providing means for holding the side walls of the case in a spaced relation to provide an open pocket in which the mounting may be easily placed and be protected against injury.

Other objects and advantages will become apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, and it will be apparent that many changes may be made in the details of construction, arrangement of parts `and methods shown and described without departing from the spirit of the invention as expressed in the accompanying claims. I, therefore, do not wish to be limited to the exact details of construction and methods shown and described as the preferred forms only have bee shown by way of illustration. Y

Referring to the drawing:

l Fig. I is a perspective View of a case embodying the invention;

Fig. II is a sectional View taken on line II-II of Fig. I;

Fig. III` is a perspective View of a modied formof theinvention showing a portion thereof in section;

Fig. IV is a perspective View of a further modification; Y

. Fig. V is a sectional view taken on line V-V of Fig. II. y f

It has been usual in the past With ophthalmic mountings of the above character to place them in an ordinary case having no means of separating the chain from the mounting. This type of case was very unsatisfactory because it allowed the chain to become entangled with the mounting, and very frequently caused the lenses to become scratched and damaged. It, therefore, is

akprime object of this invention to provide a case having means therein for supporting the chain member separately of the mounting and of preventing theychain from becoming entangled therewith and injuring the lenses.

Referring more particularly to the drawing wherein like characters of reference designate like parts throughout the several Views, the device embodying the invention as shown in Figures I and II comprises twov separate compartments A and B formed by a front 1, back 2, and a spacer member 9. The front 1 and back 2 are secured together adjacent their marginal edges by means of the stitchings 3 which extend only along the two sides and one end of the case, thus leaving the other end open as indicated at 4 to permit the insertion of the mounting. The front 1 and back 2 are formed preferably of a flexible material such as leather, cloth, imitation leather or any othersuitable material or fabric, and are provided with linings 5 and 6 formed of a material similar to those of the front and back portions of the case. The linings are secured at their peripheral edges between the front l and back 2 by the stitchings 3 along the sides and one end of the case and by the stitchings 7 along the peripheralv edges of the open end 4 of thecase. The spacer member 9 which is formed from soft leather cr other suitable material is secured to the lining of the back 2 bythe stitchings 3, see Fig. III wherein the parts are separated.

It is apparent that the spacer member 9 may if desired be of the same size as the front and back and may be secured at its peripheral edges between the said front and back by the stitchings 3. Attention is directedto the fact that the stitchings 8 set forth above extend only through the lining means 5 and are concealed from View outwardly of the case by the back portion 2. The spacer portion 9 as shown in Figures I and II is provided a relatively rigid member 14 which is male vportion 12 of the snap fastening means of the case extends when it is in secured relation with the female portion 13 of said fastening means. This provides simple means for closing the open end 4 of the case and for simultaneously sealing the open ends of the compartments A and together. Internally of the case and adjacent, 'the end opposite the open end 4, there is provided with an opening 10 through which the formed from pressed paper, stiff leather, metal or other means adapted to act as a reenforcing member for holding the walls of the case in spaced relation to provide an open pocket in which the mounting may be easily placed and be protected against injury by preventing the said walls from being pressed together. The reenforcing member 14 may be held in position by an adhesive 15 or other suitable means.

'I'he portieri 9 as shown in Figures I, II, III and V provides separating means for forming the compartment B wherein the chain of the mounting may be placed when the mounting is in position in the compartment A. It is apparent, therefore, that the said chain will not become entangled with the mounting or be permitted to scratch or otherwise injure the lenses of the mounting when carried in the case.

In Fig. III there is shown a slight modification wherein the case structure is generally the same but the portion 9 is cut away at the top so that the snap fastening means does not extend through an opening in said portion as set forth above.

In Fig. IV there is shown a further modication wherein the back portion of the case and the partition or pocket forming portion 9 are provided With flaps 16 and 17 which are adapted to be folded over the open end of the case and secured to the front thereof by means of the fastening members 18 and 19. In this instance the partition or pocket forming portion 9 is provided with an opening 20 through which the portion 19 of the fastening means is adapted to extend when the parts are in secured relation with each other. This case as far as the inner construction is concerned is substantially identical to those described above only in this instance the lining means and pocket forming means are secured in place by stitchings 21 substantially identical to the stitchings 3 set forth above.

It is apparent that although the parts of the case are shown and described as being stitched together they may be united by an adhesive or other suitable means.

From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided simple, efiicient and economical means and methods accomplishing all of the objects and advantages of the invention.

Having described my invention, I claim:

1. A case for an ophthalmic mounting comprising a front and back portion formed of soft flexible material united at their peripheral sides and one end thereof and having an ununited end portion, a pocket member of soft flexible material between the front and back portions shaped substantially to the same contour shape as said front and back portions and having an opening therein adjacent its end near the ununited ends of the case and means for securing the front and back portions together to close the ununited end of the case, said means extending through the opening in the pocket member when the ununited end of the case is closed.

2. A case for an ophthalmic mounting comprising a front and back portion having lining means, said front and back portions and their linings being united at their peripheral sides and one end thereof and having an open end portion, a partition member secured to the lining of said front or back portion at its peripheral sides and one end thereof and having an open end adjacent the open end of the case, said case having a reinforcing member of relatively stiff material adjacent the united ends of the front and back portions adapted to hold the adjacent walls of said front and back portions in spaced relation with each other, and means for securing the front and back of the case together to close the open end of said case.

3. A case for an ophthalmic mounting comprising a front and back portion formed of soft flexible material having lining means of soft flexible material secured at their peripheral edges to the peripheral edges of said front and back portions, said front and back portions being united along their peripheral sides and one end thereof and having an ununited end portion, a partition member of soft flexible material secured between and to one of the linings of the front and back portions along its peripheral sides and one end thereof and having an unsecured end adjacent the ununited end of the case formed with an opening therein, and means for securing the front and back of the case together to close the iuiunited end of said case, said securing means extending through the opening in the partition when the ununited end of the case is closed. .f
