Application June 15, 1935, Serial No. 26,715

11 Claims. (Cl. 150-29) This invention relates to portable receptacle devices, such as handbags.

One object of the invention is to provide a device of the character described including a bag nation so as to be reversible as a unit.

Another object of the invention is the provision of improved reversible locking or closure means for such a device; also improved means movably Vassociating the different frame members of the frame and with suflicient freedom to permit the reversible action, and yet normally operative to maintain the frame members in suitable alinement in closing the device.

Another object of the invention is to furnish an improved auxiliary bag or lining for the main or foundation bag and which shall have improved cooperation therewith to reliably cover the entire inner wall of the foundation bag and which shall open and close therewith and yet be removable, as in reversing the foundation bag, or to substitute an auxiliary bag having different compartments or pockets or one of different character, or for use as an independent bag; and a related object `of the invention is to furnish an auxiliary bag for a foundation bag of the framed type to relieve the latter of the extraordinary stresses frequently caused by excessive loading of a bag.

Another object of the invention is to provide improved means in association with a reversible framed bag for mounting a conventionally swivele-d purse therein.

A further object of-the invention is the provision of a device of the type stated having relatively few and simple parts, and which is relatively inexpensive to manufacture and assemble, durable, reliable, eflicient and convenient in use, neat and relatively conventional in appearance.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the specification proceeds.

,The advantages of the invention as here outlined are best realized when all of its features 50 and instrumentalities are combined in one and the same structure, but, useful devices may be produced embodying less than the whole.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to which the invention appertains, that the same may be incorporated in several different constructions. The accompanying drawings, therefore, are submitted merely as showing the preferred exemplication of the invention.

Referring in detail to the drawings, 20 denotes a reversible device embodying the invention. The same may include a bag 2l and a frame 22 the latter desirably comprising U-shaped frame members 23, 24 of channel form in cross section for continuous connection to the side walls of the bag at the top and ends thereof, and the frame members being movable toward and away from each other to close and open the bag.

Associated with the frame members is a suitable locking device or catch means 25, and for uniform operation of the same as well as neatness in appearance it is desirable that the frame members shall follow a predetermined relation to other, in closed or partly open position or both. Hence the frame members are interconnected as at their lower ends, but since the frame intended to be reversible, the interconnection must permita greater freedom of relative movement of the frame members than heretofore possible. For example, I may provide a link 2B having pivoi'ed connection at 21 with the depending lug portions 28 that extend from the backs of the channel members in the plane thereof.

To prevent relative movement between the frame members 23, 24 along the plane thereof the length of the link 26, or distance between the pivots 2l is such that the frame members are constrained to lie in snug side by side contact or engagement with each other adjacent to the link in the closed position of the frame as shown in Fig. 5. This abutment between the frame members prevents angular movement of the link. Incidentally, the frame members may lie in substantial contact with each other throughout for properly closing the bag. Some angular movement of the link relative to one or both frame members may occur when the frame is open, but this is immaterial and will in any case be small.

An alternative or supplemental arrangement may be provided to prevent relative movement of the frame members along the plane thereof, or angular movement of the link, and this means may reside in extending the undercut edges 29 of the side flanges 3U of the channels to form shoulders to abut an adjacent edge of the link, particularly in the closed position thereof. The link may be of suitable size and shape to clear the shoulders 29 in reversing the-frame.

The locking device 25 may include a plurality of elements for male and female interengagement, and one of the elements being reversible. For example, a head or rail like element 3l may be provided on the frame member 24, extending preferably longitudinally and in symmetrical relation to the side edges of the frame member 24, and generally arranged in relatively rigid upstanding relation to the edge of the correspondside wall of the bag and generally parallel to said side wall. A female element or loop 32 may have its legs 33 pivotally :connected at 35 to a lug at opposite ends thereof, so asl toprovide an opening 35 extending from face to face of the element 32. The cross bar 31 of said element has its inner edge 38 curved or cam shaped to easily ride over the head 3|, and the latter may have like grooves or dwells 39 on opposite sides thereof, one of which grooves receives the cam portion 38 with Ya snap action.

It will now be seen that the element 32 is swingable transversely of its frame member 23 about an axis parallel thereto for releasaby engaging the head 3 l If desired, a small clearance Il@ may be observed between the elements when the device 25 is open, but said elements may be in abutment when the device is closed, with the frame members yielding somewhat due to their inherent resilience as indicated by the space at 4| in Fig. 4.

In Fig. 3 is shown the device 23 in reversing position. The frame members 23, 24 and links 26 open to lie substantially along a plane to afford a large opening in the frame through which the bag 2l may be moved as indicated by the arrow 42, the portions 43 denoting parts of the side walls of the bag that have already passed through the frame. Upon completing this action, the frame members may be swung downwardly toward each other, and the element 32 swung in a corresponding direction to engage the head to releasably close the bag. Of course one face of the bag may consist of a different material than the other, so that, in effect, a new-handbag is produced, which will in construction and shape look like the device 2li, and be relatively conventional in appearance and in normal use.

Due to the symmetry of the locking device 25 the s ame will function in exactly the same manner in one as in a reverse position of the frame. The locking device may be regarded as illustrative of any reversible locking means, whether swingable or removable for reversal. For instance, the pin 34 may be removable, if necessary, to reverse the element 32.

By my invention, another advantage results in that the frame members 23, 24 may be exact duplicates of each other, whereas the frame members that have a single pivot must be constructed by different dies for different sizes to form the well known offset pivot lugs. In my frame, the cut outs at 29 may be made by any die for `all sizes of frames, to form the pivot lugs 28.

4To avoid soiling of the inner face of the bag 2! as by articles contained in the bag, a removable auxiliary or lining bag such as lil may be provided mounted or suspended in any suitable manner in the foundation bag 2l. It is preferred that the lining bag shall be arranged to open and close with the foundation bag to facilitate access to articles therein. While the lining bag may be detachably secured to the walls of the foundation bag, as by buttons, straps or the like, I desire that there shall be nothing on the bag 2i to affect the external ,appearance thereof. For like reasons, I prefer that the frame 22 shall be wholly uniform in external appearance and free of any holes, fasteners or the like. To mount the lining bag at or adjacent to the links 25 would be unsatisfactory because a great strain would be communicated to the frame 22, particularly when the device 20 is being closed and the lining bag is stuffed full, as it frequently is, with the articles customarily used by a woman. Hence I have devised the novel arrangement and construction that I will now describe, for mounting the lining bag, and to overcome the foregoing difliculties.

I utilize 4a clearance which is obtained within channel frames of the regular downward opening type, known in the trade as stuff frames. As shown in Figs. '7 and 8, the bag 2l may have one or more layers of material 4.5 marginally clamped in a narrow or insert channel member 16, of U- shape. The member 46 is then slid into a corresponding frame member 23, 24, and each of the the bag wall.

latter members `is clamped adjacent to its ends, or a-pin passed through the channel member at said ends to hold the insert therein as by abutment against the ends of the insert. This is a well kno-wn method of fabrication. Because the insert 46 is considerably narrower than the frame member so as to be wholly concealed therein, small clearance spaces 4l extend along the frame member 4within the same -and on opposite sides of These clearance spaces are substantially uniform in size, and are quite narrow and unnoticeable, and may bel made wider or deeper .as by using a thicker insert or a deeper frame member. Itis in this clearance space that I suitably mount the lining bag, and thus the appearance of the foundation bag and of the main frame 22 is not affected at all, and nevertheless the main bag can be tightly closed, and strong support afforded for the lining, bag at points remote from the main frame pivots.

v:members 49, for instance, to the inner ilanges 53,

are the relatively rigid plates 54 that project slightly from the inside of their frame members for insertion into a suitable clearance space 41 of the main frame 22. Movably or pivotally engaged as at 55 with the inner flange of the frame members 49 at the opposite end thereof, are a plurality of latch plates t that lie inside of the members dil and are swingable outward into a suitable clearance space 41 as shown in Fig. 6, and inward ,through slots 5l' as by retraction'of the bent up lips 58, to withdraw the catch plates 56 from engagement with the clearance space. The plates 55 may slide along the fabric of the bag 48 in the insert channel, the travel of the plates being rather small.

The assembly of the main and lining bags is shown in Figs. 6 and 7, and it will be noted that the inner flanges of the frame members 23, 24 and 46 lie in the same plane, and are in substantial edge to edge abutment throughout so as to entire'- ly cover and protect the inner face of the bag 2 I, and to give the appearance of a substantially single frame structure. If desired, a slight clearance may be provided at 59 between the edges of the frame members 23, 24 and 49 to allow for ,a take up because the substantially alined pivot means 5i? and 25 are different, such take up being eected through a very slight creep-.of the plates 54 and in the clearance spaces 4l when the bag device is opened and closed. However, if the pivot means 55 were of the link type as shown at 25 or in Fig. 14, the need for the take up mentioned could be eliminated or rendered so small as to be assumed by the resilience of the frame members.

In order that the weight of the lining bag and its contents shall be carried wholly by the frame 22, I may pass pins @il through the frame members 24, or provide other means over which the plates 54, 56 engage so as to support the frames de.

Upon removal, the bag 44 may be used as an independent bag, and closed as by a pliable tab 48a connected to one side of the bag 48 and engageable with the opposite side thereof as by snap fastener means 48b. In the assembly of Fig. 6, the said tab may be infolded out of view between bags 2| land 48.

To reverse the handbag, the lining bag is first removed, as by engaging the lips 58 with the finger nails of the operators nger to retract both plates 56, and thus to permit the bag 44 to be tilted and the plates 54 to be readily removed from engagement. The bag 44 may now be suitably closedY to avoid spilling of the contents. Then the foundation bag is reversed as hereinbefore described, and the lining bag 4d again inserted. This is done by rst alining the frames and entering the plates 54 in position, and then moving the plates 56 outward into engagement. The reversible bag is no-w again completely assembled. Y

It is noted that there is no tendency to cutting of the foundation bag fabric by any of the plates 54 and 56, because the fr-ame members 49 press the fabric 45 downward out of the path of the said plates, as clearly shown in Fig. 7, and this is further aided by the fabric of the bag 4% which tends to bulge outward as indicated at 6 i.

In Figs. 10 to 12 is shown a modiiication of the invention including a frame 62 having a removable pivot device 63 to permit reversal of the frame. The frame members 64 may have their end legs 65 provided with means for detachably engaging the device 63, such as tubes 66 aixed to the backs of the frame members and being closed at the tops and open ended at the bottoms thereof. The device 63 may comprise a pair of legs 61 conventionally pivotally interconnected at 68, the legs being adapted to be upwardly inserted into the tubes 66 to befrictionally held therein, as by means of inward extending bulges or tits 59 that snap into corresponding recesses i@ in the legs 61. 'I'he pivot 68 now becomes the pivot for the frame 62.

In use, the device 63 is removed at each end of the bag, the latter reversed as hereinbefore described, -and the devices 53 reinserted.

In Figs. 13 and 14 is shown a modification of the invention including a frame 1|, of the regular or inverted type', and having in place of the link 26, a disc plate 'l2 providing diametrically alined pivots '13 for the frame members 1l, and similarly arranged holes 'I4 in central vertical alinement. Into the upper holes 'I4 of the discs 12 at each end of the frame are snapped the male undercut ends 'i5 of stems such as 5l that carry a frame 52 for a purse or lining bag. The snap engagement is effected by deflection of the legs of the frame 52, with the latter acting asl a spring. f This arrangement may be embodied to mount the purse in the lining bag 44, with the plates 12 lying at the outside of the channels 49. It will be understood that in all other respects, the action of the plates l2 is like that of the links 26, and that for reversal, frame 52 is removed and then engaged with the rother holes 'i4 which then become uppermost.

In Figs. .and 16 is shown still another modification of 4the invention, including a frame 'i6 having frame vmembers "Vl, each having at its ends later-ally extending ears 18, all of which are perforated as at 19. A pair of these perforations aline at each end of the frame and are releasably interconnected at 86 in any suitable manner, by a removable or yielding pin or stud or the like. The outer ears and their perforations are idle but come into use in the same manner when the frame is reversed. If desired, one of each of the outer and inner pairs of perforations may have a xed pin to snap into the other perforations of the pair on suitably springing a frame member 'il as described for the frame 52 of the device shown in Fig. 13.

In Figs. 17 to 19 is shown a modification of the invention including a reversible device 8l, comprising a bag S2 and frame members 83 therefor. 1n this device the bag is connected solely to the top channels 84 of the frame members, and is free of the legs E5 thereof, which can therefore move partially over each other, so that single pivots 86 may be used to interconnect the legs. t is noted that the bag may be closed at its ends by walls or gussets such as 8l. The locking device may be like that shown at 25, but preferably includes an element Sii having a lower groove 89 to fit the upper side of the frame member and being mounted on a pin 9B passing therethrough and through the back of the channel member as shown in Fig. 19 into connection with a leaf spring 9! or the like .disposed in the frame member longitudinally thereof. Thus the element 88 while normally iixed to project one side of its frame member is reversible to project toward the opposite side, with the member 88 seating in snap action engagement at the seat 89 on its frame member. The member 83 also possesses the -ability to tilt about an axis parallel to the frame member by reason of the spring 9i, the passage for the pin et being downwardly convergent at Si: for this purpose, whereby an upwardly offset nger piece portion S3 may receive in a recess or hole a pin 95 that is fixed in the companion frame member. The contour of the element 83 may be such as not to sho-w any wear on its frame member that may result from its movements. This locking device can be used in place of the locking means of the device 2 I.

It will be noted that I have provided locking means having different positions of operation, and which may include one or more elements, operative as and when necessary. One of the elements, such as the lug 95 may be regarded as a part of the frame member on which it is mounted. Further, it is noted that the pins 2l aord axes that are movable relative to the frame members, and that the pivotal means of Figs. l and 15 likewise alford such movable axes. Relative to the lining bag M, it will be perceived that the same can be used advantageously in a nonreversible handbag. In all devices 2Q, @2, ll and 8i, the frame members may lie in a common plane for reversing position of the bag as shown in Fig. 3.

1n Fig. 20 is shown a modified locking means applicable to any of the devices hereinbefore described, and having different operative positions with respect to the sides of a frame member in one end in a reversed position of the receptacle. Thus the device 9@ includes channel members Q'l for the side walls t8, 99 of a foundation bag. Attached to the inner and outer sides of the wall St are a plurality of the respective pliable tabs lil@ and Ii, secured as at EQ2 at a point spaced from the frame to clear the frame of a lining bag @Il or the like. Each tab or strap may be a duplicate of the other and each may have a snap fastener head H13 for releasably engaging in an eyelet im! in the wall 99. As shown the tab lill is in use and extends over the frames 91 to close the bag, while tab m0 is reversely folded downward into the bag and is out of use and may lie between the side walls of the main and lining bags. When the main bag is reversed, the tab |00 is upwardly swung and occupies a position like that of the tab IGI, while the latter is inwardly folded like the tab IUD shown. The heads ID3 on each tab snap into the eyelet |04 in one and in an opposite direction, respectively, according to the position of reversal of the receptacle.
