LOUIS GARWITT, OF NEW' YRK, N. Y.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 6, 1920.
Application filed August 23, 1919. Serial No. 319,385.
To all whom t may concern Be it known that l, Louis Gnnwrr'r, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county of New York and ,State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Shawl Muffler, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
T his invention relates to improvements in shawl muilers, an object of the invention being to provide a device of the character stated, which performs the function of a shawl, a mui'iler and a hood and which is adapted to be used with the hood in operative position or folded down on the muilier, and when in the last-named position the inuiiier will be provided with an ornamental collar.
i further object is to provide a device of the character stated which is especially adapted for use by the occupants of motor vehicles and which is intended not only to keep the wearer warm but also to protect the hair from blowing about in the wind.
lilith these and other objects in view the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, and combinations and arrangements of parts, as will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.
ln the accompanying drawings- Figure 1 is a pers Jective view showing the device in use as a s awl;
Fig. 2 is a view in transverse section through the central portion of the device, as illustrated in Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1, showing the device in use as a innil'ler and hood;
Fig. L1 is a view central portion of the device, in Fig. 3, and
Fig' is a view in transverse section on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1.
1 represents a strip of material of the desired length and width 4and this material may be woven, knitted, crocheted, or formed in any desired manner and of any desired material. This strip 1 has its front portion rolled back, the roll being indicated by the reference numeral 2. A hood 3 is formed at the central or intermediate portion of the in section through the as illustrated combination shawl,
strip 1 by giving to the intermediate portion of the strip at its center an inward curva ture, as shown at et and an upward bulge, as shown at 5.
rEhe front edge of the hood portion 3 has an extension 6 which is curled back upon itself, as shown at 7, and constitutes an ornamental front to the hood and a collar to the shawl muiiier when the hood is folded back, as shown in Fig. 1.
The hood portion 3 is preferably strengthened or thickened by means of an inner thickness 8 which may be joined to the material of the strip in any desired manner and this inner thickness, which constitutes the outer face of the collar portion 7, is preferably of a different color than the color of the strip 1 which gives to the collar an ornamental appearance and distinguishes it from the rest of the material.
The strip 1 may be provided with any number of pockets 9 or the pockets may be dispensed with, if desired, and an ornamental fringe 1G may be provided at the ends of the strip if desired. Vilhen the device is in use as a shawl, its front around the shoulders, as indicated in Fig. 1, and the portion t will constitute an ornamental collar. When the hood is to be used, the collar portion is elevated and drawn over the head, as shown in Fig. 3, and if the device is to be used'as a muiiier, the ends of the strip are crossed, as shown in Fig. 3, or thrown around the shoulders in such manner as is common with devices of this kind.
Various slight changes may be made in the general form and arrangement of parts described without departing from the invention, and hence l do not limit myself to the precise details set forth but consider myself at libert f to make such changes and alterations as fairly fall without the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
1. As a new article of manufacture, a combined shawl-muffler and hood, comprising a strip of material, a hood formed on the intermediate portion of the strip, the forward portion of said hood rolled backwardly so'that when the hood is folded over the shoulders of the wearer the forward rolled back portion of the hood forms a collar.
