Description:

My invention relates to a combination glove and receptacle.

Handbags, pocketbooks and purses are frequently lost or stolen. To prevent such loss, to frustrate snatching by thieves, as well as to notably augment the attractiveness of the ensemble of the smartly dressed woman, I have devised a unit in which there are incorporated two components, namely, a glove and a receptacle-the word "glove" being employed in its generic sense to include any type of covering for the forearm, and the word "receptacle" being similarly used to identify a handbag, pocketbook, or the like. The unit is worn on one arm with the dangling case at all times readily accessible to the hand of the other arm. Manifold additional advantages will appear from a more comprehensive explication of the invention, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which: Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a combined glove and handbag, the handbag being partly broken away to show interior pouch.

Fig. 2 is a similar view illustrating the bag par25 tially detached.

Fig. 3 is a transverse section along lines 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 1 depicting modifications, and Fig. 5 is an elevation showing the parts detached.

Referring to the drawings, and more particularly Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive, 5 designates a lefthand glove having finger sheaths 6, thumb sheath 7, and a gauntlet-like extension 8 covering forearm 9. At a point on the underneath side of the extension is a strip 10 to the outer edge of which is affixed one member of a zipper track II, the complemental member 12 of the zipper track being carried by a strip 13 projecting vertically from the bag 14. A pendant fly 15 serves to conceal the zipper track from view.

Bag 14 is unique in that it has pouches 18 and 17-one on each side, and each pouch is provided with a flap, as 18 and 19.

In Figs. 4 and 5, a modified form of the fastening means is illustrated. In lieu of the zipper. strips 10 and 13 are equipped with eyelets 20 and 21, respectively, through which a lacing 22 may be threaded.

Fig. 4 also embodies another modification comprising the virtual elimination of hand portion of the glove in favor of a converging tongue 23, constructed as an integral part of the gauntlet and disposed forwardly over the back of the hand and the middle finger, to which latter it is anchored by the band 24.

It will thus be seen that I have consolidated into a single commodity two essentials of a woman's every-day attire-a glove and a bag. The bag yields at its point of connection with the glove-it dangles, so to speak, in contradistinction to being rigid. It comports itself gracefully with arm movements, and the unit, in its entirety, enhances the beauty and appearance of a woman's ensemble. Regardless of the hand upon which the unit is worn, the contents of the bag are accessible to the other hand. Various schemes as to combinations of colors and materials will add still further to the esthetic appeal. And from a purely practical standpoint, the likelihood of misplacing one's bag, or having it stolen, is nil.

In its broader aspects, my invention comprehends the employment not only of the various means described, but of equivalent means for performing the recited functions. For example, the glove may be of the full finger, half-finger, or fingerless type; it may be manufactured for the right hand as well as the left hand; the connection between the glove and bag may involve means other than a zipper or a lacing arrangement; the components may be constructed of the same or different materials, as may suit the particular occasion; and the design of the bag may 80 be changed at will. It is desired to reserve the right to effect such changes and modifications as may come fairly within the scope of the appended claims.

I claim: 85 1. A covering for a forearm and a receptacle, said receptacle having an opening for access thereto, and being secured above said opening longitudinally of the covering at a point beneath the forearm, the receptacle being otherwise unsecured to the covering.

2. A covering for a forearm and a receptacle, said receptacle having an opening for access thereto and being yieldably connected longitudinally of the covering at a point beneath and parallel with the forearm, the connection between the covering and the receptacle permitting a lateral swinging movement of the receptacle to either side of the forearm.

3. A covering for a forearm and a receptacle, 60 said covering having a depending strip disposed longitudinally beneath the forearm, said receptacle including an opening for access thereto and provided with a complemental strip and a separable connection between the strips. 4. A covering for a forearm and a receptacle, said covering having a depending strip disposed longitudinally beneath the forearm, said receptacle including an opening for access thereto and provided with a complemental strip, a separable connection between the. strips and a pendant fly carried by said covering for concealing the strips and their connection.

5. A covering for a forearm and a receptacle, said covering having a depending strip disposed longitudinally beneath the forearm, said receptacle including openings for access thereto, a pair of flaps for said openings and a complemental strip, a separable connection between the strips, and said strips being flanked by a pair of pendant flies carried by said covering and having their outer free ends resting upon the inner extremities of said flaps.
