2 Claims.

nomical in the use of materials.

Other and further objects w ll be made apparent in the following specification and claims.

In the accompanying drawings,

Fig. 1 is a front view of a billfold-purse combination illustrating one embodiment of the invention, the purse being closed;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary view similar to Fig. 1 but showing the purse open;

Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the billfold with the purse removed;

Fig. 4 is a generally perspective view of the purse removed from the billfold;

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional View substantially on line 55 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 6 is a view similar to that of Fig. 2 but showing a modified form;

Fig. 7 is a general perspective View of a purse illustrating an alternative embodiment of the invention; and

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary elevational View showing the purse of Fig. 7 secured to the billfold.

Referring to the drawings, I generally indicates a billfold having end sections 2 and 3 foldable one on the other about a central line of fold in the manner common to billfolds.

One end section such as 3 is provided on its inner face with a pocket having an outer wall member t. The billfold may be constructed in any usual or desired manner and take any usual or desired form which includes the outer pocket wall t.

Preferably, and as best indicated in Fig. 3, the pocket 5 formed between member 4 and the adjacent billfold wall member 6 is open at the top and one end.

A purse generally indicated at I is adapted to be seated in the pocket 5. The purse comprises a rear wall 8 and a front wall 9 having substantially the height and length dimensions of pocket 5 so that the purse will fit in the pocket. Preferably the end of the purse which is positioned as shown in Figs. 2 and 5.

purse.

of a snap fastener positioned to engage with the at the open end of pocket '4, when the purse is seated "in the pocket, 'is provided with a gusset member H]. r

The rear wall of the "purse is extended to form closure flap 1! 'andthe front wall of the purse is extended to form a flap I2 which when the "purseis seated in the pocket 5 of the 'billfold folds over the upper edgeof pocket member 4 The end or tip of the flap l2 isforrned with a lock-tab portion it which is adapted to be interlockedin a slot or cut M formed 'in pocket member 4 to hold the purse in the pocket as shown in Figs. 2 and 5.

When the purse is 'tobe used apart from the billfold lock-tab 13 is interlocked in a slot or cut '15, formed in the front wall 9 of the purse to hold the flap I2 flatly against the body of the Flap i2 is provided with one element it other element l s'i 'of the snap fastener which is carried by the closure flap II to secure the purse closed, when lock-tab I3 is engaged in either slot 14 or IE.

While I have shown a snap fastener as the closure means it will be understood that any suitable type of fastener may be employed. Also if desired slot It in pocket member 4 may be replaced by a strap [8 (Fig. 6) beneath which the lock-tab I3 engages, or any other suitable form of fastener elements may be used for the purpose.

In Figs. 7 and 8 is shown an alternative embodiment of the invention in which the fastener element 16 is carried by the purse wall 9 and pocket member 4 is provided with an aperture l9 through which the fastener elements it and I! may engage when the purse is seated in the pocket. Flap I2 is folded over the upper edge of pocket member 4 as previously described and is provided with lock tabs 20 which interlock in slots 2| formed in member 4 at each side of aperture IS, the flap being cut away between the tabs 26 as indicated at 22 to clear the aperture l9 and fastener element Hi. When the purse is used apart from the billfold lock-tabs 20 may be engaged in slots 23 formed in wall 9 of the purse as shown in Fig. 7.

It will be seen that in each of the forms described the pu-rse may be released from the billfold by detaching the lock-tabs 13 or 20 from the pocket wall 4 and that this may be accomplished without distunbing the contents of the purse. The degree of interlocking of the tabs in the wall member need not be great as the parts tend to lie flatly against each other. As is clear from Fig. 5

the flap I2 closes the opening between the front :wall of the purse and pocket member 4 along the upper edge of the latter so that there is no danger of coins being misdirected into that space when the purse is attached to the billfold.

As between the two forms described the first is preferred since a flatter, thinner fastener device may be used for the purse closure and it is more easily and economically manufactured, since the operation of punching the opening I9 is avoided as well as the care required to properly register such opening with the fasteners l6 and I1.

I claim:

1. A purse-billfold combination in which the purse is removably held in a, pocket of the billfold, the front wall of the purse being provided with a flap extending from the upper edge thereof and folded downwardly over the upper edge of the outer wall of said pocket when the purse is seated therein, a fastener element carried by said flap, a second fastener element carried by the pocket wall and engageable by the first named fastener element to releasably hold the purse in the pocket, l3, third fastener element carried by the front wall of the purse and engageable by said first named fastener element when the :purSe is removed from the pocket to releasably hold said flap to the front wall of the purse, a purse closure flap extending from the upper edge of the rear wall of the purse and foldable over said first flap, a fourth fastener element carried :by said closure flap and a fifth fastener element carried by said first flap, said fourth and fifth fastener elements being engageable to releasably hold the purse closed when the first named fastener element is engaged with either said second or said third fastener elements.

2. A purse-billfold combination in which the purse is removably held in a pocket of the billfold, a flap member extending from the upper v edge of the front wall member of the purse and folded downwardly over the upper edge of the outer wall member of said pocket when the purse is seated therein, a tab extending from the free edge of said flap member, the outer wall member of said pocket being formed with an opening in which said tab is engageable to releasably hold the purse in the pocket, the front wall member of the purse being formed with an opening in which said tab is engageable when the purse is removed from the .pocket to releasably hold said flap member against the front wall member of the :purse, a purse closure flap extending from the upp r edge of the rear wall of the purse and foldable r over said flap member, and interengageable fastener elements carried respectively by said closure fiap and one of said members, said elements being engageable to releasably hold the purse closed when said tab is engaged in either of said openings.
