Patented Get. 29, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Irving Gardner, Brooklyn, N. Y.

Substitute for abandoned application Serial No. 563,835, November 17, 1944. This application August 8, 1945, Serial No. 609.542

8 Claims. 1

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a paper hat.

This is a substitute for my abandoned application, filed on November 17, 1944, Serial Number 563,835.

More specifically, the present invention proposes the construction of a paper hat characterized by having a visor, a rim and a top, all formed ofa single sheet of heavy paper or cardboard and held together without the employment of any means not forming an integral part of the sheet.

.Still further it'is proposed to provide a hat as aforesaid in which the top is roughly elliptical in shape and the hat is open throughout the major ortion between the rim and top.

Another object is to provide a hat of the aforesaid type having a single connecting member between the rim and top in the back of the hat and anothersingle connecting member between the visor and top in the front of the hat.

A further object is to provide a hat of the aforesaid type having a single connecting member between the rim and top in the back of the hat and two spaced connecting members between the visor and top in the front of the hat. I

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

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

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a hat constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the blank of paper from which the hat of Fig. 1 was made.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary rear view of the hat.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 1 of a hat constructed in accordance with a modification of this invention.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the blank of paper from which the hat of Fig. 4 was made.

The hat I0, shown in Figs. 1-3, according to this invention, comprises a visorII rounded at its front and having two depending wings I2 at its sides. The rear edge I3 of the visor is curved. The hat also has a top I4, substantially elliptical in shape and connected to the visor by two spaced bars I5, the top I4 having a curved extension I 4* between th bars I5 which shades the forehead of a person wearing the hat. At the rear of the top I4 depends a support I6 having two cuts I I. The hat has a rim I8 formed by two bars extending rearwardly from the wings hats.

I2 and attached to the support I5 by passing through the slots IT as is clearly shown in Fig. 3.

In order to construct the hat, a sheet of heavy paper or cardboard is cut, by one operation by a suitable die, into the blank shown in Fig. 2. A great many blanks may be cut by one operation, thus enabling mass production of the paper The wings are-then formed by bending on the lines a, the bars I 5 are bent at the bottom lines D and the top lines 0, thus elevating the top I 4 above the visor, and the support I 6 is bent along the line d. The ends of the two members forming the rim I8 are then secured to the support I6 by passing them through both slots I'I.

The hat thus constructed has many advantages over other previously known paper hats. Itis open between the rim and top for the passage of air therethrough for cooling the wearer of the hat. It is made entirely of one piece of cardboard. so that the blank can be formed by one operation, and there are no separate pieces of the hat to become lost. Thus it may be handled easily, especially by vendors selling the hats at beaches, ball games and similar places Where paper hats are needed to shade the head from the sun.

The slot-s I1 are made just long enough to re ceive the members of the rim I8 so that once they are passed through the slots, .they are gripped, preventing them from being pulled out. The size of the rim can be quickly and accurately adjusted to fit the wearers head by moving the members of the rim in the slots II against the friction of the grip thereof. If desired, the hat may come equipped with a flap of glued paper I 9, shown in Fig. 3, which may be moistened and folded down to adhere to and secure both members of rim I8 in the slots IT.

A feature of the hat I0 is that it has two bars I5, one on either side of the top I4. thus insuring a strong support of this top on the visor l I.

The hat It! shown in Figs. 4 and 5, constructed in accordance with a modification of this invention, is of the same type as the hat II! but distinguishes therefrom by having a single central bar I5 connecting the top I4 to the visor II.

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

Having thus described my invention, what I 3 claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
