A TTOP/VZYS HOLDER FOR A HANDBAG AND COMPLEMENTARY WEARING APPAREL SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention is directed towards a holder, which permits a womans handbag to be hung up on a clothes hanger rod conventionally provided in a closet. More particularly, the present invention is directed to a holder for a womans handbag, which additionally serves to support accompanying apparel, such as a scarf.
The present holder features a relatively large-arcuate band portion, which serves to support the handle or bail of a woman's handbag, such as to insure against cracking or breaking thereof. The band portion is bounded along curved marginal edges thereof with raised portions, which serve to both rigidify the band portion and insure against unintentional dislodgement of the handle therefrom. The band portion is further rigidified by a crossbar portion, which extends between the ends of the former and serves as a convenient support for a piece of wearing apparel, which is complementary to the handbag, such as a scarf. The crossbar portion is preferably formed with a flat upper surface and necked intermediate the ends thereof, thereby reducing to a minimum the likelihood that the scarf will accidentally fall or be removed therefrom.
The holder also features a suspending hook construction, which is positioned relative to the band portion, such that the weight of the holderand handbag supported thereby always maintains the holder in vertical upright condition.
DRAWINGS The present invention will now be more fully described with reference to the accompanying drawings wherein:
FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the holder of the present invention;
FIG. 2 is a side-elevational view of the holder shown in FIG.
FIG. 3 is an end elevational view of the holder shown in FIG. I; and
FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 3, but showing a modified construction.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION Reference is now made more particularly to the drawings, wherein the holder of the present invention is generally designated as 10.
In accordance with the preferred form of the present invention, which is illustrated in FIGS. 1-3, holder includes an arcuate or semicircular band portion 12 having raised portions in the form of flanges l4, 16 extending along the curved marginal edge thereof; a generally horizontally extending crossbar portion 18, which joins the respective ends of band portion 12; and a suspending hook portion 20.
As will be apparent from viewing FIG. 3, band portion 12 includes a smooth, curved upper surface 22, which cooperates with flanges l4, 16 to define an upwardly opening channel adapted to supportingly position the handle or hail of a womans handbag, not shown. In particularly, surface 22 serves to evenly support the handle so as to insure against the cracking or breaking thereof, whereas flanges l4, l6 serve to prevent unintentional dislodge ment or removal of the handle from surface 22. Additionally, flanges 14, 16 lend structural rigidity to band portion 12.
Hook portion includes a base portion 20a, which lies within a common plane and extends vertically upwardly from flange portion 16 in the area of attachment thereto, and intermediate portion 20b, which extends in a vertically inclined relationship upwardly from base portion 20a, and a vertically disposed hook end 24, which is dimensioned to hook over a clothes hanger rod, not shown, of the type conventionally provided in clothes closets. Referring particularly to FIGS. 2 and 3, it will be understood that hook end 24 is arranged in a centered relationship relative to surface 22 and lies within a plane arranged parallel to base portion 200, such that the weight of the holder and a handbag supported thereon always maintains the holder in a vertical, upright position when supported on the clothes hanger rod.
Making particular reference to FIG. I, it will be noted that crossbar portion 18 is formed with a flat upper supporting surface, as at 26, and is necked or constricted intermediate the ends thereof, as at 28. It has been found that this construction reduces to a minimum the likelihood that complementary wearing apparel, such as a scarf draped thereover, will accidentally fall or be dislodged from the crossbar portion, should the scarf be brushed against by other articles being placed in or removed from the closet.
FIG. 4 illustrates a modified form of the present invention, wherein band portion 12 is of double-curved or saddle-shaped configuration. In this construction the raised edge portions of band portion 12 are designated as 14a, 16a.
The holder of the present invention may be formed by a suitable plastic molding operation. Alternatively the parts of the holder may be formed separately and subsequently joined by heat bonding or adhesive.
We claim:
1. A holder for a handbag and complementary wearing apparel comprising in combination:
an arcuate band portion for positionally supporting the handle of a handbag;
a crossbar portion joining opposite ends of said band portion for supporting wearing apparel draped thereover, said bar portion being characterized as having a flat upwardly facing support surface wherein ends of said surface are of a width substantially corresponding to the width of said ends of said band portion to which said bar portion is joined and wherein the width of said surface substantially progressively decreases from adjacent said ends thereof, whereby said surface tends to maintain wearing apparel draped thereover positionally supported intermediate the ends thereof beneath said band portion; and
a suspending hook portion arranged in a substantially centered relationship above said band portion such that when said holder is suspended by said hook portion the weight of said holder and handbag supported thereon tends to maintain said holder in a vertical, upright condition.
2. A holder according to claim 1, wherein said band portion is bounded by a pair of essentially parallel curved marginal edges extending between said ends thereof, said hook portion extends upwardly from adjacent one of said marginal edges and terminates in a hook overlying the center of said band portion intermediate said ends thereof, and said hook lies within a vertical plane arranged parallel to said marginal edges.
3. A holder for a handbag and complementary wearing apparel comprising in combination:
an arcuate band portion for positionally supporting the handle of a handbag, said band portion having a pair of curved marginal edges extending between opposite ends thereof;
a crossbar portion joining said ends of said band portion for supporting wearing apparel draped thereover; and
a hook portion for suspending said band portion whereby the weight of said holder and hand bag supported thereon tends to maintain said holder in a vertical, upright condition, said hook portion including a base portion arranged coplanar with and extending vertically upwardly from an area of attachment thereof with one of said marginal edges, an intermediate portion arranged to extend in a vertically inclined relationship relative to said base portion, thereby to overlie said band portion, and a hook end arranged to extend vertically upwardly from said intermediate portion, said hook end being arranged parallel to said base portion and to overlie said band portion in a substantially centered relationship relative to said ends and said marginal edges thereof.
4. A holder according to claim 3, wherein said crossbar portion has a flat upwardly facing supporting surface of reduced width intermediate the ends thereof at which said crossbar portion is joined to the ends of said band portion.

Claims (4)
