317,042, now Patent No. 2,260,700, dated October 28, 1941. Divided and this application Septcmber 13, 1941, Serial No. 410,712

2 Claims.

The invention herein disclosed relates to glove holders and is a division of patent application Ser. No. 317,042 filed Feb. 3, 1940, Patent No. 2,260,700, Oct. 28, 1941.

Special objects of the invention are to provide a device for carrying a pair of lady's gloves which can be readily attached to a handbag or other suitable support, which can be quickly and easily opened up to receive the gloves and which will close automatically to clasp the gloves and hold them securely.

Other desirable objects and the novel features of invention by which all objects of the invention are attained will appear in the course of the following specification.

The drawing accompanying and forming part of the specification illustrates one simple practical embodiment of the invention. Structure however, may be modified and changed as regards this particular illustration, all within the true intent and broad scope of the invention as hereinafter defined and claimed.

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the invention in use on a ladys handbag.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged broken detail view, showing in dotted lines the glove encircling and the empty positions of the supporting loop.

Fig. 3 is a further enlarged broken sectional detail as on line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic view showing the loop or glove encircling noose fully opened to readily receive a pair of gloves.

In the general view Fig. 1, the holder is shown as consisting of a single length of ball chain 5,

doubled upon itself to form a loop or noose 6, forencircling a pair of gloves 1, and which noose is closed in gripping engagement about the gloves by a sleeve 8, surrounding and weighted at 9, to slide down over the parallel suspending portions of the chain.

The ends ill of the flexible chain are shown caught together by a ring H, linked at I! to a spring ring l3, adapted to be snapped into the handle hasp [4 of a handbag such as represented at l5.

Suspended in the manner shown, the loop forming portion of the flexible member can be fully opened up to receive the gloves by simply sliding the confining sleeve 8 upwardly as far as permitted by the supporting ring, substantially as indicated in Fig. 4. The Weight 9 serves as a convenient handle for actuating the slide and when the gloves are placed in the expanded loop, this weight will ordinarily suflice to close the strands together down over the encircled gloves, the loop thus taking the character of a slip noose to automatically close upon and hold the gloves.

To hold the loop more closely or more firmly confined about the gloves, the slip sleeve 8 may be formed with an inwardly struck spring tongue l6, Fig. 3, to yieldingly grip the balls or links of the chain.

The device is readily attachable to a handbag and once mounted, constitutes an attractive, as well as a convenient and useful accessory.

The dotted lines at the bottom of Fig. 2, show how when the noose is empty, the small sized loop ll, confined by the sliding sleeve at the lower end of the chain, will round out to form in effect an abutment of greater diameter than the sleeve, thus to prevent the sleeve from slipping oiT the chain when the latter is empty.

What is claimed is:

1. A device for automatically gripping and holding a pair of gloves suspended from a lady's handbag or other support and comprising a selfclosing suspended slip noose of a size to embrace a pair of gloves and made up of a flexible member doubled upon itself and having the two ends brought together and provided with means for attaching and suspending the same from a supporting object to provide suspended parallel strands connected at the bottom by a loop, a noose forming loop slidingly engaged over the suspended parallel strands between said supported portion at the top and said connecting loop at the bottom, said sliding loop having handle means by which the same may be slid up over the strands to leave the loop of the flexible member fully opened below the same to receive a pair of gloves therein.

2. A device for automatically gripping and holding a pair of gloves suspended from a lady's handbag or other support and comprising a selfclosing suspended slip noose of a size to embrace a pair of gloves and made up of a flexible member doubled upon itself and having the two ends brought together and provided with means for attaching and suspending the same from a supporting object to provide suspended parallel strands connected at the bottom by a loop, a noose forming loop slidingly engaged over the suspended parallel strands between said supported portion at the top and said connecting loop at the bottom, said sliding loop having handle means by which the same may be slid up over the strands to leave the loop of the flexible member fully opened below the same to receive a pair of gloves therein, said handle means being in the form of a weight which will automatically slide said loop closing sleeve down over the suspended parallel strands of said flexible member.
