o r the ob ects "or the invention is to overcome the diflicultiesabove set forth and "topro'vide a hand bag'with a plurality of pockets so constructed and "arranged that 1 access maybe hadto' one ofthe pockets withhavin out necessitating the opening'ofanother "of thepockets. j r

Another object of the invention is' to provide a hand bag having'a plurality of pockets with a simple frame construction. in which the same frame member is utilized for a plurality of pockets thereby providing a construction having a minimum of parts.

Another object of the invention is to provide a hand bag with an auxiliary pocket so constructed and so connected with the bag that the auxiliary pocket will not detract from the appearance of the bag and may be opened without 0 ening the bag.

Further objects of the invention will ap pear from the following specification taken in connection with the drawings which form a part of this application, and in which- Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a hand bag constructed in accordance with my invention.

Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation on an en.- larged scale of the construction shown in Fig. '1, and

Fig. 3 is a perspective view, partly broken away, showing the construction illustrated in Fig. 1, but-with the closure for the auxiliary pocket open.

The invention may be briefly described as comprising a hand bag having a plurality of main frame members pivoted together and having secured thereto a body of the bag, one or both of the main frame members one or more extensions rigidly carried ereby and preferably formed integral therewith. Anauxiliary pocket is secured tothisrigid frame extension anda closure for this pocket is pivoted to this-extension'.

members and Referring to the drawings, I .have-shoWn {a handbag having a main bodyyl0 formed of fabric or any other suitable material, the body 10 being secured to a pair of frame members'll and 12 pivoted onea'ch other at 13. Injthe form of'the invention shown, the frame m'embers' areformed with parallel edge portions 14 between which. the body" 10 'is' secured." Each of these members fhasfisecured to the upper face thereof a clasp member 15, the members 15 cooperating in a well known manner'to fasten the members '11 and '12 of the bag in closed position. A-handle 16 of any, suitable construction is secured to the members 11-and12 as shown inEig. 1. I

The main frame membenll has rigidly secured thereto or formed integral therewith an auxiliary frame member or extension 17', this frame member eXtendingFdownwardly from the main or longitudinally extending portion 18 of the frame member 11 and forming with the portion 18 of. the member 11 a closed rectangle. It will be understood, however, that any other shape of frame 17 may be used if desired.

The body 10 of the bag is secured in the channel formed by the parallel edges '20 of the extension and extends around the auxiliary frame 17.

A rectangle closure frame 21 is pivoted on pivot pins 21' to the frame member'17 and the closure frame is preferably U-shaped in section. A pooket 22 is secured to the frame 21 in the channel between the parallel flanges of the U-shaped sectionand is also secured to an inwardlyextending flange 28 formed on the frame member 11, as shown in Fig. 2. A cover 24, preferably of fabric,

is also secured in the channel of the frame 21 thereby closing the opening of the pocket. A latch 25 is pivoted at 26 to the closure frame 21 and is adapted to engage a downof the closure frame as at 22 thus forming a safety compartment with its edges sew together as at 22 Furthermore, it will be noted that? separate and independent latches are secured for the frame members 11 and 12 and for the pocket and that the bag may be opened without opening the pocket or the pocket may be opened without opening the bag. a

Although-one specific embodiment of the invention hasbeen illustrated and described, it will be understood that the invention is capable of'modification and that changes in the construction and inthe arrangement of the various cooperating parts may be made withoutdeparting from the spirit or the sco'peof the invention as expressed the following claims;

What I claim is:
