COIN AND KEY PURSE.
Application filed June 2, 1925. Serial No. 34,294.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, MARY E. Roi-In, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lynchburg, in the State of Virginia, have invented new and useful Coin and Key Purses, of which the following is a speci fication.
lily invention relates to improvements in coin purses, whereby one end of the strap that forms a loop to go over the wrist extends part way down the back of the purse below the stitching that attaches strap to purse to form a loop for a handkerchief, and the other end of said strap extends into the inside of the purse far enough below the stitching to admit of an eyelet to hold a snap for a key; and the objects of my improvements are, first, to provide a receptac-le for coin into which easy access may be had from the side while it hangs on the arm; second, to provide a hook inside the purse from which to suspend a. key, and on which the key may be used without. removal. from purse; third, to afford a loop for a handkerchief which will be both convenient. and ornamental.
I attain these objects by the means illustrated in the aceoi'npanying drawing, in which- Figure one (1) shows a front view of the purse: Figure two (2) a back view; Figure three a side view; and Figure four a view of the inside otthe purse.
Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views. The receptacle (l) and the double strap (2) secured at top of the receptacle constitute the foundation for the improvements, though these improvements may be used on any purse of similar construction. The hand kerchief strap is made by attaching end of strap to a point on the back of the receptacle with a row of stitching or otherwise. The key hook l) slips through eyelet (5) and hangs down into the body of the purse, the pointed end of which (6) is for coin and small compact case if desired, these being held in securely when purse is closed by snap fasteners (7).
1. A handbag made of flexible material folded twice to form three layers of material, each layer being fan shaped, the wide ends of the layers being extended beyond the straight line connecting the corners, two adjacent layers being stitched along this extended portion, thereby forming a pocket, the third layer having its hinge line at the nnstitched adjoining edges of the other 1ayers, and a handle secured at the narrow end of the hand bag.
2. A structure as claimed in claim 1, in which one end of the handle is secured between two of the layers, the handle also being secured near its other end to the narrow end of the handbag, the portion Of the ban dle adjacent to the narrow end of the hand bag being made into a loop to support an object, such as a handkerchief.
S. A structure as specified in claim 1, in which. one end of the handle is secured between two layers ol the material, this end of the handle extending beyond this point of securenient to provide a key support.
il. A structure as claimed in claim 1, in which the third layer has means of fastening said layer to one of the layers forming a side of the pocket to positively close the pocket.
5. A. handbag composed ol? a plurality of layers of material, two adjacent at said layers,- having a (.Ol'lVGX extension at one end and being secured along this extension to form a pocket, the opening oil thepoeket being at the sides of the layers abeve said securenient, and a handle secured at the other end of the layers.
6. A hand bag composed of a plurality oi. layers of material, two adjacent of said layers secured near one end to form a pocket tl'ierel'ietween, the bottom of said pocket being convex from the other end of the hand-- bag, the opening of the pocket being at the sides of the layers above said sccurement, and a handle secured. at the said other end of the layers.
