' To all whomit may concern:
' Be it knownthatwe, CHAS. A. SPENcE and 'NORVAL T. S ENO of Cincinnati, Hamilton county, Ohio, havei'nvented a new and'useful l Improvementin Tobacco-Pouches, of which the 3 following is a full andexactdescription, with references to the accompanying drawings.-
Figure 1 is a front view of our tobacco- "pouch.' Fig. 2 is 'a perspective view of same.
Figs. 3 and 4 representthe blanks or patterns ofthesamef fl g l Ourinvention relates to an improved mannerofconstructingthetobacco'pouchofleather, by which we facilitate the manufacture, and
produce a simple and cheap article particularly adapted for the purpose.
In the drawings,A 0 denote the flap and.
backof the pouch,ywhich are out out of a sin gle piece of leather, and B denotes the face of thepocketifl The part Bis of the same formfor general outline and s'izeof either of the parts A O, and when the blanks represented in Figs. 3 and'4 are cut froma folded strip of leather, the part B is also cut from a single strip of leather, at
the same operation, by the use of a die. When the part B is united with either the, part 0 or A, (with both of which it conforms in shape,) the pouch is complete; and, when folded together, the part A, as shown in Fig. 1, covers the entire pocket B, thus providing a smooth continuous surface for each side of the pouch when in use.
