EVERETT vlfllilEil, OF EAST 'LIVERPOOL (l1-110.


To all fio/"7.0m it may concern:

Be it known that I,y Evnnnrr BURDEN, citizen ot the United States, residing at East Liverpool, in the county of Columbiana and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful improvements in Gloves, of whichthe 'following is a specilication.

l This invention relates to improvements in gloves and has for van object the provision ot a glove so constructed as to materially strengthen and increase its wearing qualities.

An object of the invention is the provision of a glove having removable and reversible reinforcing linger and thumb members arranged in a manner to, receive most of the Wear and provide additional protection in cold weather for the tips oi'- the fingers and thumb, these portions of the hand being most sensitive to cold.

Another object is the'provision of means 'for removably holding the rein-forcing members in place, so as to permit of their ready removal Afor the purpose of reversing them or lor the substitution of new ones when l necessary.

lith-the above and other objects in view, the invention further includes the following novel features and details of construction, to be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.

ln the drawings.

Figure -l is a perspective view of the glove illustrating the invention.

Fig. 2 is 4an enlarged longitudinal section through one of the'ingers ot the glove with the reinforcing member in position thereon.

Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the reinforcingv member. l

Fig. a is a perspective View looking at the inner or palm side of the glove with the re- Aintorcing member removed.

Figs. 5 and 6 are views of a modification.

Referring to the drawings in detail, like characters of reference denote the correspending parts throughout the several views.

The invention is susceptible of application to gloves of various styles, the one shown in the drawings being of gauntlet type, such as is commonly used by drivers of automobiles or horses. lt may be made in various constructions and includes a back 10,'a palm ll, lingers l2, a thumb 13 and a gauntlet 1l. The glove may be formed of any suitable material, the purpose of the present invention being to provide a glove which is made Specification of Le tteis Patent.

Application filed February 1G, 192?. Serial No.

thumb as shown at Figi l.

'atented Nov. lo, 192th of comparatively cheap material, such as cotton, and in order to increase its wearing quality, the palm 1i is reinforced as shown at l5, the material used for this reinforcing extending .a short distance alongthe inner side of the fingers and thumb as shown in Fig. oi. the drawings.

ln order to protect the outer ends or tips of the fingers and thumb, the invention provides a removable reinforcing member i6. The member 16 is formed of some, tough material, such as leather or raw hide and is formed in the form of a finger stall which fits over the outer ends of the lingers and Extending from diametrically opposite sides of 'the open end oi' the reinforcing members, are laterally disposed ears 17, the ears upon one side of the member being inserted through slits 18 arranged transversely of the ngers and thumb near the base thereof, these slits being located upon the inner or palm side ot the glove. ln order to more securely hold the member in position, there'is provided a loop 19, which maybe formed of cord or other flexible material, the ends of which are connected by a bar 2O of metal so as to provide a stitlening bar included in the loop. This bar is arranged across the inner tace of the reinforcing member at its junc-- ture with the ears 17 and the ears are then turned inwardly as indicated at 2l in Fig. 2, while the end of the loop is passed around a button 23 which is located substantially at the base of the fingers and thumb upon the back of th`e glove as shown in Fig. l.

lVith this means a reinforcing member is provided which will take up the wear of the fingers and thumb of theglove and which will ailord protection in cold After the reinforcing members have become worn upon their inner or palm surfaces, they may be reversed bg, lirst detaching the same and engaging the loop 19 over the opposite pair of ears and replacing the members, whereupon the worn portion of the said member will be upon the back of the lingers. i In the modiication shown in -Figs. 5 and 6 the members 16 are each secured to the glove by the wellknown type of snap device indicated at 24. I prefer to use a pair of these devices for each member, as shown in Fig. 6. ln other respects plus' arrangement 1s similar to that above t escribed.

The invention is susceptible of various weather.-

sa n

changes in its`form, proportions and minor details of construction, and the right` 1s herein reserved to make such changes as properly fall Within the scope of the f and buttons secured to 'the glove for detachable engagement with the loops.

2. The combination with a glove, of removable reinforcing finger and thumb members, said members comprising substantially cylindrical members open at one end and adapted to fit over the ends of the fingers and thumb7 laterally projecting ears located upondiametrically opposite sides of the open ends of said membersl and means insection for engagement over said ears and y for connection to the glove for removably .holdin the members in position.

3; yT e combination with a glove, of removable reinforcing inger and thumb members7 said members comprising substantially cylindrical members open at one end and adapted toft over the ends ofthe lingers and thumb, laterally projecting ears located upon diametrically opposite sides of the open ends of said members, means engage able with the ears upon one side of the members for connection with the' glove and the ears upon the opposite sides of said members being removably positioned in slits disposed transversely of the fingers.

1n testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
