dle comparatively hot objects without discomfort, such as kitchen utensils and the like.
Other objects and purposes of the invention will appear as the description proceeds. It is to be understood that changes in the precise emf bodiment of the invention therein disclosed, and
as set forth in the claims, may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings, in which the preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated- Figure l is a view in elevation of the left-hand glove looking in the direction of the palm side thereof;
Figure 2 is a cross sectional view on line 2-2 of Fig. 1;
Figure 3 is a cross sectional view on line 3-3' 0f Fig. 5;
Figure 4 is a cross sectional View on line 4*-4 of Fig. 1;
Figure 5 is a View of the palm side of the glove after the removal of the contact sheet or outer covering therefrom;
Figure 6 is a cross sectional View on line B-6 of Fig. 5;
Figures 7 and 8 are plan views of two of the insulating plates of the thumb portion of the glove;
Figure 9 is a cross section on line 99' of Fig. 5; and
Figure 10 is a plan View of one of the insulation plates of the palm portion of the hand.
Referring now to the drawings in stricter detail, throughout which like reference characters designate like parts:
The numerals I and 2, designate, respectively, the front and back sheets or wall coverings of the glove proper, which preferably are formed of canvas fabric and comprise, each, the conventional thumb, nger and palm members, sewed together at their edges in the manner usual in the manufacture of canvas gloves.
A wear sheet or wall covering 3, of like border lineation to the sheet l, is disposed across the outer side of the latter and its edges, as at 4, secured thereto by sewing.
The stitchings along the edges of the sheets l, 2 and 3 for sewing same together, have been omitted to prevent thickening of the drawings.
The sheet 3 preferably terminates short of the wrist portion 5 of the glove. 5
The sheet 3 is, at spaced intervals, sewed to the sheet 2, as indicated by the dotted lines 6 extending transversely of the thumb, fingers and palm of the glove, whereby to form individual closed pockets 1 between said sheets.
In the pockets 1 are disposed at, heat-retarding, plates 8, which are formed of chipped or granular cork material firmly cemented together with any suitable cementitious substance. If desired, however, other material than cork chips or granulations may be employed for forming the plates 8.
The plates 8, which preferably t somewhat movably in their respective pockets, are held relatively spaced by the stitching 6. 20
The spacing of the plates 8 is intended to occur in general alignment with the knuckles of the hand so as to permit proper flexing of the several members thereof.
If desired, the inner face of the sheet l may be fleece lined to provide means for additional retardation in the passage of heat from the outer to the inner surface of the front side of the glove.
l. In a glove of the character described, the combination with the palm portion of the glove, said portion comprising an inner and an outer layer of material and a pair of plates of cork material disposed in relative spaced order between said layers, said plates being normally relatively movable, of a row of stitching through said layers between said plates, said stitching functionable towards limiting movement of said plates in directions towards each other with respect to said layers.
2. In a glove of the character described, said glove having a. finger portion embodying an inner and an outer layer of material, a pair of plates comprising flexible material disposed in relative spaced order between said layers of material, and arow of stitching through said layers of material between said plates, said plates being relatively movable in directions towards and away from each other, said stitching functionable for binding portions of said layers of material into bodily engagement between said plates.
