UNITED STATES CLARKE GUN'I'EB, OF GUNTER, TEXAS.
" imcnrmcna roa 'ronacco AND croann'r'rn PAPERS.
Application filed October 12; 1922. Serial No. 594,072. v
of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Receptacles for Tobacco and Cigarette Papers, of which the following is a s ecification.
My invention as for its object to provide a receptacle of small dimensions and of neat appearance which may comfortably be carried inthe users pocket without unduly bulging the same and which receptacle is intended to hold a packa e of cigarette papers and a quantity of to acco.
Another object of the invention is to construct the receptacle in such a manner that the tobacco and cigarette papers have separate compartments.
Still another object of the invention is to make a receptacle sufiicientl 7 strong and durable to stand a great dea of wear and handling, but at the same time simple and cheap enough for the use of a wide range of smokers.
One embodiment ofthe invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and Fig. 1.is a perspective view of a receptacle 0r pouch in closed position; v
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section along line 2-2 of Fig. 1; v
Fig. 3 is a transverse section along line 3-3 of Fig. 2;
Fig. 4 is a plan view of of the pouch developed;
Fig; 5 is a similar view of the front portion of the pouch,
Fig. 6 is a plan view of the strip constitutgng the sides and bottom of the pouch,
the main part Fig. 7 is a similar view of a square piece of material forming the small pocket intended to receive the cigarette papers.
In the drawings reference, numeral 10 represents asubstantiall rectangular piece of leather or other pliab e material forming the back and flap of the'pouch. As' seen in Figs. 1 and 2, the flap 11 is made to fold over the top of the pouch and reach ap- .p'oximately half way down the front there- The front of the pouch is'maide of a piece of similar materia 12, see F1 5, and a v strip 13, see Fig. .6, constitutes t e sides and be used, if sodesired.
bottom of the pouch and is united with the back 10 and the front 12 by means of. a llne of stitching 14 along the edges thereof.
In this manner a comparatively largepocket '22 as best seen in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, is formed, open at the top, but which may be closed by the flap 11 when folded over the opening. .A pac age of tobacco 15 prefer a ly wrapped inpaper as at 16 fits snugly in the pocket formed in this manner.
As best seen in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, the edges of the parts, as it will be readily understood, that the stitching can be performed a great deal easier in this manner, than if e5 of the sides and bottom strip 13 are turned outward in order to facilitate the uniting the edges of the side strip 13 were turned inward in the pouch.
Another piece '17 of the same material as the rest of the pouch, as seen in Fig. 7, is secured on the front portion 12 of the pouch by means of stitching 18 to form a thinpocket thereon. The stitching in' this case s done without turning the edges of the piece 17 inwards, and this piece is preferably sewn on the front piece 12 before the sides and back are attached thereto. This pocket is intended to receive a package of cigarette papers 19 and the pocket is placed in such a position that, when the package ofcigarette papers is pushed down in the bottom of the pocket, the upper portion of the pouch does not extend above the top of the upper edgeof the large pocket, as seen in Fig. 2.-
At 20 and 21 is shown the securing elements for the pouch and the usual glove snaps are preferable to' any other'kind of closing devlces, but it is evident that a button or a strap'with a clasp or buckle may It will be evidentthat this pouch will make. a very compact receptacle for tobacco. and cigarette papers and that it will be sufficiently, tight to retain necessary moisture in the tobacco..
It will also be evident that 'a thin package of matches might be inserted with the cigarette papers'in the small ocket without making it unnecessarily bul y.
' The upper edges of the pockets need have no stitches, when the pouch is made of leather or rubber, which also tends to make the pouch thinner.
A suitable size of the pouch has been found to be 3 inches wide, 4 4 inches in depth and inches thick, but it should be understood that larger or smaller pouches may be manufactured to suit requirements.
The manner of uniting the edges of the different parts of the pouch clearly tends to make the construction stronger, than if the side stri 13 had its edges turned inward, because t e comparatively stiff edges formed of double layers of material will stand a great deal more wear, than if made any other way.
Another advantage of stitching the parts together in this manner is that, when the pouch is only half filled, the sides 13 will fold inwardly instead of outwardly and in this manner decrease instead of increase the width and depth of the pouch. It also .makes the pouch completely collapsible when empty, in which case it will take very little room.
In order to keep the pouch tightly closed, when it is not completely filled, one or two additional snaps 24 may be provided on the fla 11 or on the front piece 17, as seen in ig. 4.
is claimed as new is:
A collapsible receptacle of the class described comprisin substantially rectangular main front and ack elements and a continuous side and bottom element having its edges out-turned and stitched respectively to the edge portions of the back and main front elements to form a pocket with stifi edges therewith, a pocket opening being situated at the short edges, a secondary front element of smaller dimensions than the said main front element and secured in a substantially central position thereon b stitching to form a small pocket therewith spaced away from all four edges of said main front element; a flap formed integral with said back element adapted to fold forwardly over said secondary front element, and means for adjustably securing the flap on said secondary front element, said means being concealed by said flap when in closed position.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
