Specification 'if Letters Patent. Patented July 22, 1919,

Application led Marc.`r 18, 1919. Serial No. 283,356.

l To all whom it may concern.'

Be it known that-I, VICTOR'GUINZBURG, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Tobacco-Pouches, of which the following is a specification."

The object of this invention is to provide a pouch for carrying tobacco, adapted to be carried in the pocket, provided wlth means for maintaining the tobacco in a damp condition, thus preventing the drying up of the tobacco which usually' occurs when carried in a tobacco pouch of the ordinary character.

With this object,and other objects which may hereinafter appear, in view, I have devised the particular arrangement of parts hereinafter set forth and more particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawing forming a part hereof, in whichc Figure l is a front elevation of my im-V proved tobacco pouch in open position;

Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the same in closed position;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional view on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows; and

Fig. 4 is an enlarged cross sectional view of the material from which the pouch is con- Throughout the various views of the drawings, similar reference characters designate similar parts. i

In the preferred embodiment of my invention, as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, the pouch is formed of two sections of material l and 2. The sections 1 and 2 are preferably stitched together at three of their side edges bystitches 3 to'form the pouch or bag. The exact manner in which the bag is formed is not material, as it will be obvious that the form of stitching to produce the resultant structure may be varied in many ways.v

A lclosure flap 4is integrally formed on the upper end of the section or face 2 and this flap is adapted to close the pouch by being folded over upon the section 1, with its snap fastener elements 5 engaging complementary snap fastener elements 6, on the section of material 1.

The section 1 is provided with an integrally formed upward extension 7, which forms a supplemental closure flap, and is adapted to be folded upon itself, and by the folding of the closure flap 4, it is caused to 11e against and coextensive with the flap 4 as shown in Fig. 3. Both of the flaps 4 and 'T are suitably reinforced at their edges by a binding 11.

y My improved pouch is preferably constructed of'a material composed of an inner ply 8 of rubber, and outer plies 9 and 10 of an absorbent material, such as a textile fabric. These plies may be, if desired, adherent to the inner ply 8 of rubber and form therewith, a substantially integral piece of material.

lines in Fig. 1, the inner face ofthe Hap 4 is adapted Ito be moistened, the inner layer of absorbent material 9 retaining the moisture and the rubber ply 8, preventing the dampness from passing through the flap so that the exterior of the pouch is perfectly dry. It will be seen. from Figs. 2 and 3 that when the pouch is in its closed position, the supplemental flap 7 covers the portion of the inner face of the closure flap 4 that has been dampened, so that the moisture is substantially confined between the two fiaps and the moistened portion of the flap 4 does not actually contact with the tobacco contained within the pouch andA yet sufficiently keeps the tobacco 13 therein in a proper dampened condition.

In the drawing herein, I have shown the material out of 'which my improved pouch is constructed, composed of three plies of material. It' will be obvious that if desired, the exterior ply 10 of absorbent material may be omitted.

While I have shown and described one embodiment of my invention, it will be obvious that the sameis not restricted thereto, but is broad enough to cover all structures coming within the scope of the annexed claims.

What I claim is:

l. An article of the class described, comprising a pouch having a closure Hap with absorbent moisture retaining means on its inner face, and a supplemental flap adapted to fold over and lie co-extensive with said closure flap.

2. An article of the class described, comprisin a pouch formed of material having a ply of waterproof material, and a ply of' absorbent material adherent thereto, a clo- 11-0 sure flap for said pouch adapted to receive and retain moisture and a supplemental flap adapted to overlie the moistened portion of one of said sections, the inner face of said flap being` adapted to receive and retain moisture and a supplemental flap formed by an integral upward extension of the other section, said supplemental flap being adapt- Lames? ed tok fold with and lie coextensive-to said closure flap.

4f. An article of the class described, comprisin a pouch having a, closure Hap consisting o an upward extension of a part of the body portion of the pouch', an inner lining for said iiap of absorbent moisture-retaining material, and a Supplemental flap adapted to overlie the moistened area of the closure flap Signed at the city, county and State of New York, this 17th day of March, 1919.
