. 1,4%. MCHT MTTEN .MJD GLOVE HANGER Flfac una 14 1924 Patented Sept. 22, 1925.




Application filed .Tune 14, 1924. Serial No. 719,998.

To @ZZ whom t may concern.'

Be it known that I, ARTHUR LIGHT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fulton, in the county of Hanson and State of South Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mitten and Glove Hangers, of which the following is a specilication, reference being had to the accompan' ing drawings.

Tiis invention relates to means for supporting articles, and particularly to a device for supporting mittens and gloves.

The object of the invention is to provide a very simple clamp-like device which is adapted to be attached to a wall and which will support mittens or gloves either for display in shop windows or in dressing rooms.

A further object is to provide a device of this character which is very simple, which may be formed of one length of wire, which may be swung up against the wall when not in use, and which will support the mittens and gloves or like articles in position.

My invention is illustrated in the accomn panying drawings, wherein z# Figure 1 is a perspective view of my device in applied position;

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view of the same;

Figure 3 is a top plan view;

Referring to these drawings, it will be seen that my device is formed of a single length of wire. This wire is bent so as to provide the two upwardly extending spaced loops 10, the legs of these loops extending vertically and the inside legs, that is the adjacent legs, being joined by the cross wire 11. The outer legs extend downward to a point ap roximately even with the cross bar 11 and t en extend directly outward, as at 12, assuming that the device is in position for use. Each of these outwardly extending portions 12 is bent upward, as at 18. and

then inwardly extended, as at 14, and theseV r portions 14 are slightly outwardly bowed away from each other and are disposed, of course, on a higher level than the portions 12. These outwardly bowed portions 14 are connected at 15.

The device is adapted to be supported against the wall A by any suitable means and preferably by U-shaped fastening devices as, for instance, by double-po1nted tacks or clips 16. Of course, it is obvious that the device might be applied to a panel,

which in turn would be mounted upon a wall in any suitable manner or applied to ay door or cabinet. The device may be turned up when out of use or it may be permanently fastened so as to project outward. The

gloves, mittens or other articles may be clamped between the portions 14 or may be disposed horizontally upon the legs 12 and beneath the portions 14. The device is also adapted for use in restaurants, theatres and the like for holding gloves and like articles.

This device is particularly intended for use as a holder for gloves or mittens which are ordinarily thrown down and, therefore,

readily get lost in such a way as to make them difcult to find. My device is -intended to be nailed or otherwise attached to a wall beneath the coat hanger or in a closet or dressing room so that there always will be a place to put the mittens or gloves when the coat is taken of.

I claim:

A glove and mitten holder of the character described formed of a single length of wire bent to provide a wallengaging portion consisting of two upwardly extending, U-shaped bights disposed in spaced relation to each other and constituting means for attachment to a wall, the bights being connected at their lower ends by an integral 35y cross bar and the outer arms of the bights at their lower ends being outwardly extended ina horizontal plane and convergently with relation to each other, then extending .upward and then extending inward to form a middle elongated bight having somewhat bowed sides disposed in a plane suiiiciently above the outwardly extending'portions to permit mittens or gloves to be inserted between said outwardly extending portions ARTHUR LICHT.
