Jan. 24, 1928 y c. A. FETTERS Doe COLLAR Filed Sept. 11, 1923 atto'wng Patented Jan. 24, `192e.




Application :tiled September 11, 1923. Serial No. 662,069.

The invention relates to dog collars and has for its object to provide in combination with a dog collar a pocket in which the name of the owner of the dog, the address of the owner and if so desired the pedigree of the dog may be written on a piece of paper and placed in said pocket thereby obviating the expense incident to engraving dog collar plates as is the present practice.

A further object is to form the pocket in a cheap manner by utilizing a V-shaped cut across the inner layer of the collar for forming a flap having asnap fastener, the bot tom of the pocket being formed by a single transverse row of stitching.

With the above and other kobjects. in view the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings, described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention. i

In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective View of the collar, showing the name receiving pocket on the vinside thereof.

Figure 2 is a detailsectional view taken on line 2 2 of Figure l.

Figure 3 is atransverse sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a perspective view of a modified form of pocket formed'with a hinged cover.

Figure 5 is a perspective view of a further modified form of the device.

Referring to the drawing, the numeral 1 designates a conventional form of dog collar which collar is provided from layers 2 and 3 of leather. The layers 2 and 3 adjacent their edges are secured together by circumferentially extending stitching 4i. It has been that where name plates and the like are used on dog collars that the costof engraving the plates is high and as the address of owners change it will readily be seen that engraved plates are expensive. To obviate this diiiiculty the collar 1 is provided with a pocket 5 between the layers 2 and 3 and formed by the transversely disposed stitchings 6 and by cutting the inner layer 2 V-shaped as shown at 'l' thereby forming a V-shaped iiap S, which form-s a closure forv the pocket 5., The flap 8 is provided with female snap member 9, which reoeives the male snap member 10 carried by the outer layer 8 of the leather. It will be seen that the pocket 5 is formed simply by the extra stitching 6 and the V-shaped cutting 7 of the inner layer 2 of the leather,

therefore the additional cost of manufacture `outer layer 3 of the collar, which hinged connection normally when closed, closes the pocket 5a and is held closed by the spring member 18. It will be noted that the pocket 5a is formed by cutting outa portion of the outer piece of leather 3 and providing the collar with transversely disposed stitching 14.

From the above it will be seen that a pocket is formed in a dog Collar, which pocket is formed from the material normally in the collar, thereby reducing the cost of manufacture to a minimum.

Referring to Figure 5 wherein a modied form of container is shown, the numeral 15 designates the main body of the container, which container has hingedly connected thereto at 16 a cover' 17. Imbedded in the cover 17 `is a license tag for the dog, which tag is held in position by lugs 19. The cover 17 is held closed by the engagement with the free end thereof and with the spring lug 20.

The invention having been set forth what is claimed as new and useful isz- The combination with a dog collar formed from layers of material, said layers of material being stitched together by circum ferentially extending stitching adjacent the edges of the strips, of a pocket disposed between said layers of material, said pocket being formed by stitching the layers of material transversely, a ap `Carried by one of the layers of material and extending trans- 5 Versely thereof, said flap being in circumferential alignment with the layer :from which it is formed and in abutting engage ment therewith, a fastening member carried by said Hap, said fastening member cooper ating with a fastening member carried by 10 the adjacent layer of material.

In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature. t
