A TTORNEYS ADOLF LENNEBERG, OF YONKERS, NEW YORK.

GLOVE ATTACHMENT.

Application filed March 11, 1921.

T 0 all 101 10777 it may concern Be it known that I, AooLr LENNEBERG, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Yonkers, in the county of Westchester and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Glove Attachment, of which the following is a description.

My invention relates to means to produce a framed or reinforced opening in a glove which may constitute a window through which a wrist watch may be viewed and adapted at all events to accommodate itself to the watch in a manner to prevent discomfort to the wearer of the glove.

The invention contemplates further inassociation with the window or framed opening a structure adapted to the frame embodied in the glove and provided with a cover, the said structure being of a character to embody elements that may be given a form to present a through opening for the viewing of a wrist watch or to' possess the character of a receptacle for a coin. or the like.

Reference is to be had to the accompanyingdrawings forming a part of this specification, it being understood that the drawings are merely illustrative of practical examples of the invention. Figure 1 is a plan view of a glove formed with a framed opening and provided at said opening with a structure presenting a through opening for viewing the watch, and provided with a cover;

Figure 2 is an enlarged transverse vertical section corresponding with the line 1-1, Figure 3, the structure fitting the framed opening being omitted;

Figure 3 is a plan view of the elements shown in Figure 2;

Figure 4 is a vertical section on the line 4-4, Figure 1 Figure 5 is a fragmentary view of the circular blank from which certain frame members shown in Figures 2, 3 and 4 are formed;

Figure 6 is a detail in. side elevation of a fragment of the structure fitted in the framed opening of the glove and to be hereinafter referred to;

Figure '7 is a view similar to Figure 1 but omitting the structure fitted in the framed opening of the glove the view illustrating a modified arrangement of the framed opening;

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 16, 1922.

Serial No. 451,478.

Figure 8 is a transverse vertical section 011 the line 8 8, Figure 7;

Figure 9 is a view similar to Figure 4 but showing the covered structure of a form adapted to contain a coin or the like;

Figure 10 is a fragmentary plan view of the body of the structure fitted in the opening in Figure 9, the cover and bottom of said structure being omitted in the interest of clearness.

In carrying out my invention in accord auce with the example illustrated in Figures 1 to 6, a cut-out is formed in the back of the glove A at the wrist and to the material of the glove at said opening is applied a frame element 1 Said element 10 is Ushaped in cross section to present an up per outwardly disposed flange 11 generally annular in form and a lower flange 12 which in practice is somewhat smaller than the flange 11. A ring washer 13 is employed. with the frame element 10 and disposed on the lower flange 12- thereof. The material of said element 10 is flanged over to clamp the material. of the glove A. between the upper flange 11 and the washer 13. The frame element 10 is dished to present a con cave form at the inner side so as to accommodate itself substantially to a wrist watch and lie in the main outside of the watch whereby said element will be p-rotuberant to the minimum extent when imposed on a wrist watch. as when the glove is in use. In the interior of the frame element 10 are vertical notches or recesses 14 to factor in fastening a structure within the ring element as hereinafter described.

The described ring element 10 is formed from a blank 10 in the form of a flat ring, Figure 5. having an oblong hole 14 therein to produce the notch 14 when the blank is bent on the indicated score lines to produce the flanges 11, 12.

In. Figures 7 and 8 is shown a frame element in the form of a single annular dished element 10 which may be covered by a material similar to that of the glove, said material being turned over the ring at both sides and stitched down as at a to conceal the ring.

In Figure 4 is shown a structure fitted to the glove at the opening framed by the element 10, said structure including a tubular body 15 fitting in the element 10 and presenting an annular flange 15 at the top to overlie the element 10. On the body at the exterior at two or more points about the same, I provide fastener elements 16 of a length to extend through the element 10 to the inner side thereof, the inner ends 17 of the fasteners being bent laterally outward beneath the frame element, said fasteners l6 are accommodated in the notches 14: and they serve to prevent turning of-the body 15 in the ring element and a displacement in an up er down direction. At the top a hinged cover 18 is provided on the body 15 after the manner of a watch, and similarly after the manner of a watch, a catch may, as shown, he provided for the cover 1.8. in the form shown in Figure {L a short neck 19 rises on the body 15 above the flange 15" and has a cutout accommodating a catch 26 on a bowed spring 21 fitting within the body 15, said catch having secured thereto the stem of a headed pushpin 22 operating in the flange 153. Said catch is adapted to hold the cover closed against the tension ofa lift spring 241 provided on the body 15 and bearing against the cover near the hinge thereof. The fasteners 1.6 are shown as secured to the body 15 by rivets 2-3 but other means may be employed.

\Vith the arrangement of l igure etthe cover 18 may be lifted for the viewing of a watch through the body 15. The described construction also permits of the body 15 and its appurtenances being detached from the glove having the frame element 10 when the glove is worn out so that a new glove having a ring element as described may have secured thereto the body 15 and its appurtenances.

In Figures 9 and 10 a body lo corresponding generally with the body 15 is employed having a closed bottom so as to give the body a box-like form for holding a coin, a photograph. or the like. in this form of the invention a frame element is employed corresponding essentially with the frame element 1.0 and having upper and lower flanges 11, 12 and washer 13. The frame element presents notches 14 l of L shape and fasteners 16 corresponding generally with the fasteners 16 are adapted to he passed downward through said notches and givena partial turn to dispose the innor ends 17 of thefasteners beneath the frames/lenient. ith this form of the inven ti'on, I solder. brace, or otherwise suitably secure to the frame element of the glove 'a ring 25 to forma flange within the glove opening on which a bottom 26 may restf- The annular body 15* fits in the framed glove opening on top of the bottom 26] The cover 18 corresponds essentially with the cover 18, and has a spring 24: at the hinged side thereof normally tending to maintain" the cover closed.

The washer 13 may be made of any suitable;material. Advantageously in practice it is made of paper or fiber and coated with an adhesive material on its upper surface so that the glove material entered between said washer and the upper flange 11 will adhere to the washer and be held against displacement. The edges of the flanges 11, 12 are rounded to prevent cutting of the glove material.

I would state in conclusion that while the illustrated examples constitute practical. embodiments of my invention I do not limit myself strictly to the mechanical details herein illustrated, since manifestly the same can be considerably varied without departure from the spirit of the invention as delined in the appended claims.-
