Application March 1, 1940, Serial No. 321,670
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a combination clothes hanger and sachet bag.
The invention has for an object the association of a sachet bag with a clothes hanger in a manner so that clothes engaged on the hanger may be slightly perfumed.
Still further the invention contemplates a novel arrangement whereby the sachet bag may be protected with a transparent sheet of material wrapped around the same to assist in maintaining the scent during a long period of time.
Still further the invention contemplates an arrangement whereby the sachet bag or body may be supported in various elevated positions on the clothes hanger so as to be extendableto various portions of the garment.
Another obj ect of the invention resides in associating the sachet bag with different types of clothes hangers.
Still further the invention contemplates an arrangement whereby one or more sachet bags or bodies are associated with each clothes hanger.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure- Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a clothes hanger with a sachet bag or body constructed in accordance with this invention.
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary view similar to Fig. l but showing the clothes hanger in the folded position.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view V of the clothesl hanger shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical sectional view taken on the line 4 4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a side elevational view of a combination clothes hanger and sachet bag constructed according to a modied form of the invention.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary side elevational view of a combination clothes hanger and sachet bag or body constructed in accordance with another modication of the invention.
In the form of the invention illustrated in Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive a combination clothes hanger and sachet bag or body has been disclosed which includes a clothes hanger II) having a substantially horizontal body portion IBB' and a top hook I I at its center for supporting the same on an object. A sachet bag or body I2 provided with a support cord I3 is connected with the said hanger l0. A means is provided for securing the cord I3 in various extended positions from the clothes hanger.
The particular clothes hanger illustrated on the drawing includes an interior rigid member I4 formed from several sections. There is a stationary central section IIIa and end sections Mb which are hingedly connected with the central sections by pintle rivets I5. Filling material I6, such as cotton or similar material, is engaged over the member I4. A cloth casing I'I is then engaged over the filling material I6. The horizontal body portion Il)a of the clothes hanger may be folded, by folding up the end sections Mb as illustrated in Fig. 2. Thus the compass of the hanger may be reduced for shipping purposes. The interengagement of the edge shoulder portions I4bb of the end sections III1D with the center section IllBv limits downward motion of the end sections to the horizontal position. The hook I I is permanently attached to the center section Ida.
The cord I3 merely extends over the horizontal body portion IIJa of the hanger. A ribbon or cord I8 is tied around the hook I I and around a portion of the cord I3 and serves to hold the cord I3 in various extended positions. One end of the cord I3 is attached to the sachet body or bag I2. The other end I3 isfree. This arrangement permits the sachet body I2 to be let down further or drawn up, as desired. A Cellophane, or other transparent sheet material cover I9 is wrapped around the sachet body I2 to preserve its scent. Protection in this respect is'particularly desired after manufacture and during the period when the merchandise is carried on a merchants shelf. The purchaser removes the Cellophane or other transparent sheet material I9 when using the article.
In Fig. 5 a modied form of the invention has been disclosed which distinguishes from the prior form in several respects. In this form of the invention a clothes hanger I0' is shown Which has a substantially horizontal body portion Il)aa of rigid construction, that is, non-foldable. This body section is formed from a rigid core I4' which is encased with filling material I6 and -a covering case I'I. A sachet body 20 formed of separable sections Zta and 2lib is associated with the clothes hanger by supporting cords 2|. These cords engage over the hanger I0' immediately adjacent the support hook I I. A ribbon or cord I8 is tied around the hook II and around portions of the cords 2I to support the satchet body 20 in various elevated positions.
The sections 2l)a and 20h of the sachet body 20 are provided with interengageable fastening elements 23 such as a snap fastener. When these elements are engaged the sections 20L and 2Gb are held together as a unit. When desired the sections 2l)a and 20b may be pulled ap-art and then the satchet body is of two separate components. These components may be individually dropped into the sleeves of-va garment supported on the hanger. The cords2l have free ends 2l' which may be pulled downward or let out to raise or lower these satchet bodies. A Cellophane Yor other transparent sheet material Wrapping-normally covers the satchet body when the hanger is not in use.
In Fig. 6 another modied form is disclosed which is Very similar to the form shown in fFigf, distinguishing merely in the `fact thatA the article is provided with two distinct and separate spheri- A Cellophane `or other transparentsheet ,material wrapper-1 'I normally encases the sachet bodies '25. .Inother respects this form of .theinvention ssimilar .to the previousforms vclaim as 4new and desire to secure by United States' Letters Patent is:
In a hanger having a horizontal body portion and a hook mounted on and projecting from the .topcfsaid bodyv portion, cords extended over said body portion adjacent said hook and having their ends depending, sachet bodies mounted on one of the ends .ofeach of said cords, another cord extended around said cords and said hook and tied in pos-ition, each ,of said sachet bodies being of semi-spherical shape, and means for releasably connecting together the flat sides of two of said sachet bodies.
