GERTRUDE M. MEYER, OF DAVIS, WEST VIRGINIA.
Application filed November 30, 1923. Serial No. 677,840.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, GERTRUDE M. MEYER,
a citizen of the United States, residing at Davis, in the county of Tucker and State of West Virginia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Baking Gloves, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a glove for protccting a persons hand when cooking, baking or handling hot dishes.
The glove is constructed of heat-insulating material such as asbestos cloth and lined on the inside and the outside with ordinary fabric such as canvas. The glove is moreover furnished with a .reinforcing piece of leather or the like covering the palm and the under side of the fingers to increase the wearing qualities of the glove.
In the accompanying drawings, one embodiment of the invention is illustrated, and- Figure 1 is a perspective view partly in section of the glove forming the subject matter of the present invention;
Figure 2 is a transverse section along line 22 of Figure 1;
Figure 3 is a plan view of a pattern for the cuff of the glove;
Figure 4 is a plan view of the pattern for the palm piece of the glove or what might be termed the semi trank;
Figure 5 is a plan view of the pattern for the thumb piece;
Figure 6 shows plan views of the patterns for the finger pieces;
Figure 7 is a plan view of the pattern for the reinforcing leather of the palm and fingers, and
Figure 8 is a plan view of the pattern for the reinforcing leather of the thumb.
Referring first to Figures 3, 4, 5 and '6 these figures show the patterns for the-material from which the glove is made up. As already stated, the glove has a central heatinsuiating portion 55 preferably of a twoply asbestos cloth and this central portion as well as the inner and outer linings 56 and 57 are all out according to the patterns shown in said Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6. Ac-
cordingly, each part of the glove consists of three layers, namely, a central double layer of asbestos cloth and a lining for both sides of this cloth of canvas or the like and after cutting the parts according to these patterns they are laid together as just described and temporarily fastened.
' second finger.
In Figure 4 is shown the semi-trank piece 10 Wl11Cl1 is slit along parallel lines 11 to form the under side of the fingers. The reference numeral 12 represents the flat bottom portion of the little finger, the numeral 13 the bottom portion of the third finger, 1
and the numeral 14 the bottom portion of the second finger. The numeral 15 represents the bottom portion of the first finger, the top and side portions of which are formed by aportion 16 which is curved h along its outer edge and adapted to fold along a stralght dot and dash line 17, while the curved edge 18 is adapted to be sewn along the slit 19 forming the edge of the finger portion 15. The inwardly curved part 42 of the edge of the first finger portion 16 fits against the edge 41 of the linger piece 29. The thumb piece 21 is also folded along a straight line 22 while the edges 23 and 24 of the thumb piece are sewn together and the straight edge 20 and curved edge 25 fit along the recessed edge 25 of the semi-trank piece 10.
As already described, the finger portions 12, 13, 14 and 15 remain flat, and the corresponding upper pieces of the fingers are shown in Figure 6 where the piece 27 represents the top of the little finger, 28 the top of thethird finger and 29 the top of the These top pieces are shown with narrow shanks 30, 31 and 32 and broad spade-like ends 33, 34 and 35, respectively. The outer straight edge 35 of the finger piece 27 is sewn along the outer straight edge 36 of the semi-trank piece 10, while the spade shaped end 33 of the piece 27 is bent down along the edges to meet the corresponding edges of the little linger portion 12 and the straight edge 11 thereof where they are sewn together. Similarly, the third finger piece 28 has the curved edge of its spade-shaped end 34 bent down along its edges and united by stitching along the straight edges 11 and the rounded point of the finger portion 13 of the semi-trank piece 10. The straight edge 37 is sewn along the edge 38 of the little finger piece 27 and the opposite edge 39 of the shank 31 is sewn along the edge 40 of the shank 32, while the other edge 41 of said shank is sewn to the inwardly curved edge 42 of the seini-trank piece 10. The spade-shaped end 35 of this lit) The coil piece i3 which, as already described, consists oi? a central asljieetos cloth portion and outer and inner linings of canvas or the like, is Folded along a central line -l-l and ite two side edges to sewn together to provide a cliff and the tor-Ward edge 58 of this entli' is sewn to the rear ends ot' the linger nieces 2T. 12: and and to the straight rear ed in and ll of the eenii-tranlt piece and the tlnnnh piece respectively.
