WRIST AND Application filed July 24,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WENDEL SlMEK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Wrist and Hand Bag, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to hand bags and has for an object to provide structure which may be adjusted to be readily clamped around the wrist or be carried by a supporting structure.

Another object of the invention is to provide a hand bag wherein the pocket struc tures are so arranged that they will properly function when the bag is clamped to a wrist or when it is depending from a strap 'or chain. 1

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a longitudinal vertical sec tional View through a bag embodying the invention, the same being shown open but as it would appear if clamped to a wrist.

Figure 2 is a View similar to Figure 1 but showing the bag closed.

Figure 3 is a side view of the bag as it will appear when supported by a chain or strap.

Figure 1 is a side view of the bag as it appears when on the wrist of a person.

Figure 5 is a perspective view showing the top of the bag in open position.

Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, 1 and 2 indicate frames of any usual or preferred structure provided with interlocking knobs 3 and 4. The frames 1 and 2 are not hinged together as ordinary frames now in common use but receive the upper edges of the respective pockets 5 and 6 forming the body of the bag. These pockets are shown as communicating at the bottom, though if desired, a partition wall could be supplied so that the respective pockets would be independent. It will be understood also that these pockets may be of any desired shape in cross section, as for instance, rectangular and of any desired material.

In order to secure these pockets together at the upper end there is provided a strap 7 of leather, fabric or other desired material, which is secured to the wall 8 near the upper edge by a suitable stud forming a snap fastener in connection with the socket 9, which socket is secured to the free end of the strap 7 A looped member 10 is connected to the HAND BAG.

frame 2 in any desired manner and is adapted to permit the free end of the strap 7 to be threaded therethrough, then bent over and finally snapped in an operative position as shown in Figures 1 and 2. By this construction-a very flexible hinge is provided for the frames 1 and 2 and in addition securing means which may be disengaged when the device is being placed on the wrist as shown in Figure i and then re-engaged.

When the device is to be used as an ordinary bag, the frames 1 and 2 are provided.

with suitable notches 11 through which part of the chain 12 extends, said chain being secured in any desired manner to the respec tive frames 1 and 2. When the bag is used as shown in Figure 8 or when it is used as shown in Figure 4, access is had to the contents in a similar manner, namely, by disengaging the knobs 3 and 4E and opening the bag in the usual manner. Preferably the inner wall 8 of the respective pockets is made of such a size as to snugly fit the wrist when thestrap 7 is fastened as shown in Figure 1. l Vhen the bag is used as shown in Figure 3, the two vertical sections of the wall a come together so that the pockets 5 and 6 will be substantially parallel.

What I claim is 1. A combined hand bag and wrist bag, comprising pocket structures connected together at one end and adapted to encircle the wrist when used as a wrist bag, means for clamping the pockets to the wrist, said means also acting as a hinge for connecting the bag together, and a frame for each of the pockets, said frames being formed with interlocking knobs whereby the frames may be disengageably connected together.

2. A hand bag, comprising a pair of independent pockets connected together at one end and open at the opposite end, a frame secured to each of said pockets at their open ends, means for connecting said frames together and acting as a hinge, and disengageable locking members for connecting said frames together when the frames are moved to a closed position.

3. A hand bag, comprising a tubular body open at both ends, a frame surrounding each of said open ends, each of said frames having a locking knob, said knobs being adapted to interlock when brought together for holding the open ends of the body together, a strap secured to one end of said body, a looped member secured to the frame on the opposite end of the body, said strap being adapted to be looped through said looped member and extend back to the opposite end for hingedly connecting said ends together, and a fastening member for fastening both ends of said strap at the same end of said body.

4c. A hand bag, comprising a body formed from tubular structure open. at both ends, a frame for each end each of said frames having an nre-si'niped section and :1 straight chord section, disengageable means for hingediy connecting the chord sections together, and disengageable means for conlimiting the are-shaped sections together.
