Claims.
This invention relates particularly to a container, pocket, or bag tobe deta'ohably supported upon a chair, table or article of furniture in such a position that it will be readily available 5 for use, and yet will not interfere with the operative use of the chair, table or other articles of furniture. v e I 7 An object of the invention is to provide a holder for hand bags, gloves, pursesand similar articles of wearing apparel, which may be attached to an article of furniture without marring or defacing the same, and which, when attached to saidarticle of furniture would be arranged in an out of the way position thereon. i
5 A further object of theinvention is to provide an article holder adapted to be attached to a piece of furniture whichysaid holder, is formed of resilient pieces of metalso' that when articles of small size are placed intoor removed from the said holder, the flexibility of the holder will readily accommodate it to'all of the uses and purposes desired who made ofit A still further object of the invention is to provide an article holder which. may be made in an 'open wire form; or a combination ofan open wire form, adapted to support therein a bag made of paper, fabric sr-rmematenn;
Other objects and advantagessare to provide aholder for hand bags," gloves, purses or similar articles, that will be superior in point of simplicity, inexpensiven'e ss of construction, positive-,
mess of operation, and facility aridconvenie'nce in use and'general eflio'iencyj In the" specification and the annexed drawing, the invention isiIhiStrated in the form considered to be the-bestl'but it'is to be understood that the invention is not limited to such form, because it may be embodied in other forms; and it is also to be understood that in and by the claims following the description, it is desired to cover the invention in whatsoever form it may be embodied.
In the accompanying'sheet of drawings:
Fig. 1 represents a perspective view of a chair having an article holder constructed in accordance with my invention mounted thereon.
Fig. 2 represents a perspective view of a chair having a modified form of article holder operatively mounted thereon.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged plan view of the article holder shown in Fig. 1, in both the contracted and expanded positions.
Fig. 4 is a vertical cross'section taken through 55 Fig. 3 on the line 44.
Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the form of holder shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 4. r
Fig. 6 is a front view of the modified form of holder shown in Fig. 2.
Fig. 7 is a vertical section taken through Fig. 5 6 on the line (-1. i
In the use of chairs, tables and other articles of furniture, it is very desirable in many instances to have available thereon, a holder for articles of wearing apparel, such as purses, hand 10 bags, gloves and the like. Particularly in restaurants, both women and men alike, deposit articles, which have been carried in their hands on the table and thereby interfere with the table service. Withmyinvention the article holder 15 is placed in an inconspicuous position on the side of and beneath the chair so that all of the relatively small articles carried by a person, may be easily and readily deposited in or withdrawn from the article holder, and at the same time 20 the articles may be held in an inconspicuous position where they are not subject to pilferage or other loss.
In detail the construction illustrated in the drawing comprises a chair generally designated r by the numeral I, having the article holder shown in Figs. 3, 4-and 5 detachably secured thereto. The article holder consists of a strip of light weight flexible metal 2,-the upper end of which is rounded and aperture'd as at 3 to permit of 30 the insertion therethrough of a lock or fastening 4 which is mounted on the side of the chair I. The lower end of :the strip 2 is bent inwardly beneath the's eat of the chair I and terminates in a rounded cup-shaped portion 5, the. outer end of which is substantiallybeneath the outer edge of the chair seat. Adjacent the upper end of the strip 2 on the front face thereof and in a horizontal position, I have provided a piece of metal tubing 6. A wire loop 1 formed into an 40 elliptical shape has one of its sides .lournaled in the tube 6 so that said loop may have a rotational movement on the face of the strip 2. A bag 8 formed of paper, fabric or other similar material, having a rounded bottom portion and 45 an open mouth 9 on its upper side, is confined within the wire loop I, so that the bottom end of said bag will rest in the cup-shaped portion 5 of the strip 2. The edge of the mouth 9 of. the bag is folded over as at H), to loop over the 50 Wire loop I, a portion of said fold being cut away to permit hinge 6 on the upper end of the strip 2 to extend in the cut-away of the fold. The interior of the fold I0 may be provided witha strip of elastic therein (not shown), extending throughout the length thereof to hold the said folded edge of the bag around the wire loop I. The weight of the wire loop 1 is such that through the force of gravity, the free side thereof will drop downwardly against the face of the strip 2, carrying the folded edge of the bag with it and automatically closing the mouth of the bag 8.
In order to put articles into the mouth of the bag 8, it will be necessary for the user to lift the free side of the wire I upwardly and to thus pull outwardly on the same into substantially the position indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 3, in which position articles may be placed into the bag 8 or removed therefrom. Upon release of the moving force from the outside of the wire loop 1, the said wire loop and mouth of the bag will return to the contracted position shown in full lines in Fig. 3.
In the modified form of the invention shown in Figs. 2, 6 and 7, I have shown an article holder formed entirely of metal wire. In this form of the device the pocket or container is approximately of a hollow box form, and is made such by the transverse and vertical wires 1 l A single strip of flexible metal l4 extends from the front outer side of the pocket down and around and up the back of the device, with a portion thereof extending above the open upper side of the container, to permit connection of the same by a fastening device l2 to the chair l3. The flexibility of the bent strip 14 is such that normally it will rest under the chair seat, but when filled with articles, the weight of said articles will tend to cause the said container to hang in a substantially straight position. Of course, when the articles are moved from the said wire container, it will swing back into its out of the way position beneath the chair seat.
It is contemplated as being within the scope of the invention that a bag or container formed of paper, fabric, or the like can be inserted within the container formed by the wires II, should this be desirable or necessary to a better functioning of the structure.
The article container herein described may be used in hotels on arm chair seats, in hospitals on tables or beds, and generally wherever articles of furniture are used.
Having thus described this invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: 1. An article holder for attachment to chairs and other articles of furniture including a stripv of flexible metal engaging means on a chair, and
having a cup shaped pocket at its lower end;,
a member formed as an elongated curved loop having its sides touching and swingingly secured onto said strip adjacent its upper end to swing on a horizontalaxis, and a bag adapted to be positioned in said member with its bottom end resting in the cup shaped pocket of said strip and its upper end confined in and secured to said elliptical member.
2. An article holder for attachment to chairs and other articles of furniture including a strip of flexible metal engaging means on a chair, and having a cup shaped pocket at its lower end; a member formed as an elongated curved loop having its sides touching and swingingly secured onto said strip adjacent its upper end to swing on a horizontal axis, and a bag adapted to be positioned in said member with its bottom end resting in the cup shaped pocket of said strip and its upper' end confined in and secured to said elliptical member, said swingable elliptical member serving to hold the open upper end of the bag closed when said bag is either with or without stored articles therein.
3. An article holder for attachment to chairs and other articles of furniture including a strip of flexible metal engaging means on a chair, and having a cup shaped pocket at its lower end, said strip being preformed to extend underneath the article to which it is attached when in the normal position; a member formed as an elongated, curved loop having its sides touching and swingingly secured onto said strip adjacent its upper end to swing on a horizontal axis, and a bag adapted to be positioned in said member with its bottom end resting in the cup shaped pocket of said strip and its upper end confined in and secured to said elliptical member.
4. An article holder for attachment to chairs and other articles of furniture including a strip of flexible metal engaging means on a chair, a preformed metal pocket open on its upper side formed on said strip, said strip being preformed to hold the pocket concealed beneath a chair when the pocket is empty but which will swing into a position parallel to and outside of the side of the chair when the pocket has an object placed therein.
5. An article holder for attachment to chairs and other articles of furniture including a strip of flexible material having attaching means thereon; and an open ended pocket formed on said strip, said strip being preformed to hold the pocket concealed beneath a chair when the pocket is empty, but which will swing into position parallel to and outside of the side of the chair when the pocket has an object placed therein. -GERTRUDE L. McCANN.
