PICTURE FRAME FOR HANDBAGS Filed OCT.. 16, 1940 ZLTLQWL 20 V 2:55-53.

. lNvENToR Szrzo .Laterza Patented Nov. 17," 1942 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,302,560 r'Ic'rUnE FRAME Fon nANnBAGs santo Lacona, Brooklyn, N. Y. Application october 1s, 194,0, semi No. 361,422 6 claims. (di. ti-15s) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a picture frame for handbags.

More specically, the invention proposesthe construction of a picture frame for handbags characterized by a frame for receiving a picture or 'similar object and including a pair of frame sections one of which is stationarily mounted on the outside of said handbag and the other is pivotally supported thereon in a manner to be moved to an open position to permit said picture or object to be removed and interchanged with other pictures or objects .when desired.

Still further the invention proposes the conformed with a back wail I3* which extends yparal-` lel to the wall IIlb of the handbag and is securely struction of a resilient means for urging the pivotally mounted frame section into a closed positionwith relation to the stationarily mounted frame section.

Still further the invention proposes the construction of a means controlled from the interior. of the handbag for latching the pivotally mounted frame section in its closed position with relation to the stationarily mounted frame section in a manner to prevent the accidental opening thereof and so prevent the loss of the picture located thereon.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had tothe following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appendedv claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a ladys handbag having picture frames constructed according to this invention mounted on the outside wall there- Fig. 2 is an enlarged horizontal sectional view taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1. y

Fig. 3 is an enlarged detailed View of the corner of one of said frames.

Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line I--I of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged elevational view of a portion of Fig. 1 with the pivotally mounted frame section in its open position.

'I'he picture frame for handbags is adapted to be used in combination with a conventionally constructed ladys handbag I0 having a handle II and an open top I0'.

The picture frame is adapted to be mounted upon one wall IIIb of the handbag lli and is characterized by a frame for a picture I2 or other object and includes a pair ot frame sections I3 and Il. Thel frame .section I3 is integrally attached thereto.

are extended through the back wall I3 and the wall IIIb of the handbag I0. A piece of glass I6 or other similar transparent material is adapted to be located within the frame and positioned across the front face of the picture I2 for the purpose of protecting the same from. being marred and against inclement weather.

The frame section I3 is provided with an integral stud I'I which extends through the wall IIJb of the handbag and which pivotally supports the frame section Il to move in a plane parallel to the wall I0b of the handbag, as shown in Fig. 5. 'I'he frame section I4 is provided with an aperture I4 through which the stud II extends and the handbag wall I0 is provided with an aperture in an4 aligned position with the aperture' I4".

A resilient means is provided for urging the pivotally mounted frame section I4 into a closed position with relation to the stationarily mounted frame section I3. This means comprises a spring I8 coaxially mounted on the stud I'I. This spring I 8 has one of'its ends attached to the face of the pivotally mounted frame section I4 and the other of its ends attached to the adjacent face of the stationarily mounted frame section I3. This spring I8 is attached to the adjacent faces of the frame sections lunder tension and the tension is so arranged that it tends to normally urge the pivotally mounted frame section into its closed position with relation to the stationarily mounted frame section I3.

'I'he handbag is al'so provided with a means located on the stud for latching the pivotally mounted frame section fixedlyin its closed position with relation to the stationarily mounted frame section I3. 'I'his means comprises a disc I9 slidably but non-rotatively mounted upon the stud I'I and located within the handbag I0. The slidable and non-rotative mounting of the disc is accomplished by means of a key 20 formed on the disc I9 and which slidably engages a groove 2| formed in the stud I'I. The face of the disc I9 adjacent the wall IIIb of the handbag is provided with a pair of outwardly extended pegs 22. The pegs 22 are slidably extended through openings 23 formed in the handbag wall IIJb and through aligned openings 24 formed in the pivotally mounted frame section I4. The free ends of the pegs 22 are adapted to contact and rest against the inside face of the stationarily mounted frame section I3.

This attachment is accom-- plished by means of a plurality of rivets I5 which A spring 25 is coaxially mounted on the inner end of the stud Il and operates between a head I'll formed on the stud Il and the adjacent face of the disc I9 for urging the disc I9 into a position in which the studs 22 will maintain their engaged position with the apertures 2| of the pivotally mounted frame section I4. The spring 25 bears against the face oi.' the disc I9 opposed to the face carrying the studs 22.

The operation of this invention is as follows:

Normally, the picture frame I will be in the position shown in Fig. 1 and will retain the glass I6 and the picture I2 in position therein to be viewed from the front thereof. However, when it is desired to inter-change the picture I2 or remove the same therefrom, it is merely necessary to open the handbag Inland project ones hand into the interior thereof to grip the disc I9 and pull the same inwards against the holding action of the spring 25 to disengage the pegs 22 from the apertures 24 of the'pivotally mounted frame section I4. 'I'his will free the frame section I4 and permit the same to be pivoted away from the frame section I3 against the holding action of the spring I9. In the pivoted position of the frame section Il the frame is open along two sides permitting the glass I6 and picture I2 to be withdrawn from the open side thereof. When the desired picture has been positioned within the frame it is merely necessary to release the pivotally mounted frame section I4 and the tension of the spring I9 will urge the frame section back to its closed position. When reaching its completely closed posi`tion the spring 25 will then urge the disc I9 outwards to reproject the pegs 25 through the openings 24 to again latch the pivotally mounted section Il in its closed position. It is to be understood that the size and shape of the picture frame, also that .of the handbags may be changed as desired.

The picture frame may be used in connection with all sizes and types of ladies handbags, valises, portfolios, etc., and the frame may be made of metal, composition or any other suitable material.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be undertsood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modiiications coming within the scope of the invention as deiined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
