Description

Dec. 12, 1939- A. H. MQNARY PURSE KIT Filed Jan. 24, 1938 m 1U w w M J Patented Dec. i2, ices STATES Wire FATE This invention is concerned with a purse kit for use in womens hand-bags or the like, and furnishes a device for orderly and planned placement of numerous articles which are commonly carried in hand-bags in a rather haphazard fashion in indiscriminate juxtaposition.

The invention in its salient parts and features is described below in detail with reference to the accompanying drawing, wherein Fig. 1 shows a hand-bag with a novel kit inserted in it;

Figs. 2 and 3 show the two sides of one embodiment of the kit;

Fig. 4 illustrates another embodiment of the purse kit according to the invention; and

Fig. 5 represents a partial section of a new kit provided with certain supporting straps and their coaction with retainrng loops.

The kit in one embodiment, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, comprises a suitable mounting member II. This member may be made of any desired substantially rigid or semi-rigid, or of slightly yielding material, e. g., cardboard, leather, or the like, and suitably covered with fabric, or provided with 'a desired surface finish. On' one side of this member are provided two straps forming loops, such as indicated at I2 to l5 and i6 to ill, respectively. Each of these loops constitutes a means for receiving and retaining an article which is to be carried in the hand-bag. Thus, the loop l6 carries the flask l9 which may be a perfume bottle or the like; the loops l 3-|'| are in alignment and carry the comb 20; the loop It may be used for holding a lipstick or the like; the loop I5 constitutes a holder for the annular container 2 I; and the loop l8 represents a holder for the rectangular container 22. Bottom straps. such as indicated at 23, 24, and 25, are-combined with the loops l5, l6, and I8, respectively, so as tosecure the articles to be held in these loops.

On the other side of the mounting member I I, as shown in Fig. 3, is provided a band or strap forming the loops or pockets 26, 21, 28, and 29.

Inserted in these pockets may be articles, such as a pencil shown at 30; a fountain pen shown at 3|; anotebook or the like as indicated at 32; and anail file as indicated at 33.

The bands or straps forming the various loops or'pockets may consist of any. desired or suitable material, e. g., fabric with or without yieldable properties, rubber or rubberized material, and may be attached in any suitable or approved manner so as to represent a unit with the covered or suitably finished backing or mounting member II. The auxiliary bottom straps 23, 24, 25 may consist of similar material and may also be attached in any suitable way. It is understood, of

course, that the novel kit may be furnished in a any desired manner with respect to its overall size and general shape as well asto its finish, or 5 with respect to the number or size or placement of the individual loops or pockets. The aim and purpose of the kit is, as previously intimated, to provide a device which can be easily inserted and used in an orthodox hand-bag, enabling the user 10 to place numerous articles in an orderly and planned fashion instead of indiscriminately carrying them in the bag in a haphazard and dis orderly manner. The upper corners of the kit,

and particularly of the mounting member ll,

are preferably rounded in the illustrated embodiment, in order to conform with the general interior shape of the particular hand-bag in which the illustrated kit is to be used. Different general shapes may be adopted as occasion or need arises.

Such a kit as above described with reference to Figs. 2 and 3, or in any other embodiment employing additional features such, for example, as

illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5, is simply put into the hand-bag shown at 35 in Fig. 1, the kit being indicated at 36. Its use does not interfere with v the functions of the hand-bag, conserves space,

and saves the user a good deal of annoyance for reasons which appear clear without-elaborate description.

In Fig. 4 is shown a modified embodiment comprising a mounting member which consists of two portions 31 and 38 hinged at the bottom, as indicated at 39, and provided with the usual clasps or looking members, such as. and 4| A number of loops or pocket members, which may conform to the showing of Fig. 2, are secured to the backing 38, and loops or pocket members as indicated p in Fig. 3 may be provided on the backing or 40 mounting member 31. The advantage of the embodiment Fig. 4 over the one shown in Figs. 2 and 3 resides in the provision of an additional container which may be closed and opened at will and may serve for receiving or holding relatively flat objects, such as letters or the like. Each of the mounting members 31 and 38 may again be made of any suitable and approved material and may be exteriorly finished or covered in any desir-' able or necessary manner Snap fasteners, or in fact any desired type of locking members, may take the place of the clasps 40 and ll. The hinge indicated at 39 may or may not be used, according to the size of the kit and its general construction. If desired, the fabric covering (if such covering is used) of the backings 31 and 38 may serve the purpose of a hinge member; or a strap of suitable material may be attached to the bottom of this kit structure, tying the two backing members 31 and 38 together in a flexible manner. In the embodiments so far described, I have shown the auxiliary straps, such as 23, 24', (Fig. 2), secured permanently to the corresponding loop members. In Fig. 5 is shown an embodiment that may be used in conjunction with all or only certain selected ones of the retaining loops. This particular embodiment provides for auxiliary straps adapted for selective attachment whenever the corresponding loop is to be equipped with an additional retaining member so as to serve as a pocket proper having side walls as well as a bottom portion. Numeral 40 indicates the internal backing or mounting member in cross-section, and 4|, 42 may be the outside covering. At 43 and 44 are indicated two loop members, one attached on each side of the mounting member. Inside of the pocket 44 is provided one portion of a snap fastener, as indicated at 55. Attached to the covering '4 I, 42 at the bottom of the backing is an auxiliary strap 46 carrying at its end a part of a snap fastener 47. The auxiliary strap 46, when not used as a bottom strap for forming a pocket of the loop 44 (or 43) may be attached as shown in full lines. A snap fastener such as 45 may also be disposed at a point, below the position in which it is shown, in which case the strap 46 can be employed to form a separate removable loop attachment for retaining anv article below and at right angle to the loop 44. Counterparts of a snap fastener identical with the one shown at 45 may also be attached to one or to both loops 43 and 44, as shown at 48 and 49, the first being attached inside of the loop 43, while the other (49) is secured outside of the loop 44. With the strap 46 attached as shown, and located parallel with the surface 42 of the kit inside of the loop 44, each of these loops 43 and 44 may be used for retaining suitable articles without using the bottom strap 46. However, if such a bottom strap should be desired in conjunction with either the loop 43 or 44, the strap 46 is simply unfastened from the fastener 45 and is brought into the desired engagement with either the fastener 48 or 49, as indicated in dotted lines, thus converting an ordinary loop into a pocket with a bottom strap. Such a selectively operable auxiliary strap or retaining member may be provided with any of the loops on the mounting members. The dual ,function illustrated may be used where desired. If such an auxiliary strap is used to furnish a separate removable retaining loop below a stashown in the various figures, for example, the one illustrated in Fig. 4, wherein the detachable strap 46 is attached at one end to the hinged portion of the kit and removably fastened to the fixed member 44' by means of the device 41, the primed numerals corresponding to identical but unprimed parts in Fig. 5. Underneath the loop 44' may be located another fastener corresponding to the one shown in Fig. 5 at 45. The feature described with reference to Fig. 5 may thus be employed in the structure shown in Fig. 4.

It is understood, of course, that the new kit may also be furnished with a special simple suitable covering constituting and taking the place of an orthodox purse.

Changes may be made within the scope and spirit of the appended claims, wherein I have defined what is considered new and what I desire to have protected by Letters Patent of the United States.

I claim as my invention:

1. In a purse kit, a substantially rigid backing,

a pair of straps, one disposed on each outer side of said backing and each strap being secured to the backing at both ends to form oppositely located fixed loops for retaining articles in position against the backing on each side thereof, attachment means on each of said loops, and an auxiliary strap attached at one end to said backing and having attachment means at its free end for engagement with the attachment on either end of said fixed loops.

2. A purse kit comprising a pair of hinged substantially rigid backing members, a pair of straps, one disposed on the outside of each of said backings and each strap being secured at both ends thereof to form on said backing oppositely lo- ,cated fixed loops when said hinged backing members are in closed position one against the other, attachment means on each of said fixed loops, attachment means on one of said backings, an auxiliary strap attached at one end to the hinged edge of said backing members and extending at an angle to said fixed loops, and attachment means on the free end of said auxiliary strap for relative engagement with any one of said attachment means on said fixed loops or on said backings.
