roh-'0m @t .may madera v g Bei-t kniolwn that l, lJesiiluminarias, .a citilike, although the invention is, of course, not
restricted to this use.y
The primary object of the present invention, is to provide a bagof the character stated, which, when opened, will be self supporting, that is to say, when the bag is in an upright and open position, it will automatically retain this position until closed by physical agencies. I
A further object of the present invention is to provide a device of the character stated, which is so constructed and arranged that it may be partially closed or collapsed to conform to the amount of material therein, and which will retain in partially collapsed position as well as in open position, a substantially box-like formation, whichv will readily permit of them being .stacked in tiers or rows. f
A still further object of the present invention is to provide new and novel means for automatically supporting the bag in open, upright position.
With these'and other objects in view, the
invention resides in a novel construction, l
combination and arrangement of parts, a
preferred embodiment of which is herein? after described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing.
In the drawing, wherein like characters of reference denote corresponding parts throughout the several views, f
Figure l is an elevation of a receptacle made inl accordance with `the present invention, and in extended position. l
Fig. 2, is a central vertical sectional view of the same, on the line 2 2 ofFigure 1.
Fig. 3, is a horizontal .sectional view on Vline 3 3 of Figure 2.
Fig. 4 is a view, in elevation, showing the bag in partly collapsed position.
illustrated in the preferred tembo'diment, theinVentin consistsofa receptacle or b ag 10, which is provi-ded with afbody fporftionll and "a cover' 'portion 12. The
.bodyportifo'n `11 of the bag is provided `with -afllinilng 153 :and positioned" between this lining-and the outei` casing of the bag, is a coil spring 14, which is arranged to support the bag in open or partly opened position. This spring extends from the bottom of the bag upwardly to a point immediately adjacent the cover portion` 12 and is held in place by means of stitching as shown at 15. 'Y
The cover of the bag is drawn together and held closed through the medium of the cords 17 and 18 which extend upwardly l from the bottom of the bag, at points diametrically opposite each other'. These cords 17 and 18 are ositioned between the lining 13 'and the bocy portion 11 of the bag and are held in 'place bystitching indicated at 23 in Fig. 1. 1 The upper portionv of the cord 17 is directed to the right, as shown at 19, through the washer 21, the pocket 2O and out through the washer 24, at a point diametrically opposite its entrance. The upper portion of the cord 18, is directed to the left, as shown at 25, passing through'the washer 24, the pocket 20 and out through the washer 21, at a point diametrically opposite its entrance. The end portions of these cords are then held together by means of a key'22, which key also retains the mouth of the bag securely closed.
- The bottom of the bag is provided with a number of small feet 16, which assist in maintaining the bag in an upright position. It is obvious that the bag may be made square, instead of round, if desired.
that there has been providedV a simple, yet practical device of the character stated, and' while there has been described and lillustrated a preferred embodiment thereof, it is of courseto be understood that such modifications may be made therein', as properly come within the terms of the claims hereunto appended,without departing from the' spirit of the invention.
.lVhat is claimed is v 1. A bag of the character stated compris- From the above, it will be readilyseenl roo ying an outer casing, collapsible supportingv bag, the upper portions of the said cords be.- ing extended in opposite directions through the said pocket, With each cord extending out'of the pocket at a point diametrically opposite its entrance point.
2. A collapsible bag including a tubular body7 a puckered mouth, resilient means within the bodyV for normally urging the same into distended condition, and means engaged in the said mouth and longitudinally of the body for initially closing said mouth and finally collapsing the body.
3. A collapsible bag including a tubular body, a puckered mouth having a surrounding pocket, resilient means Within t'hc body for normally urging .the same into an eX- panded condition, and a pair of diametrically opposite cords each extending longitudinally of the body and through said pocket for a distance approximating onehalf the length of said pocket andprojecting from the pocket at a point diametrieally opposite to that at Which it entered, said cords being arranged to be drawn to initially close the mouth of the'bag and to` subsequently collapse the bag against the force of said resilient means.

In testimony whereof, I affix my signa ture.
