CHARLES F. KLEINSOHMIDT, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 242,333, dated May 31, 1881.
` Application filed March 15, 18:30. (Nomndel.)
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CHARLES F. KLEIN- SCHMIDT, a citizen ot the United States, residing in PhiladelphiaPennsylvauia, haveinvented an Improvement in Lined Gloves, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to certain im provements in that class of gloves which are provided with a lining ot ileecy, woolen, or other fabric, the object of my improvement being to provide the glove with a more perfect lining than heretofore without rendering the glove inconvenient or bulky, and, in fact, it consists of two perfect gloves connected together at the eX- tremities, but so cut that when so joined the seams of the one will not come in contact with those of the other.
Figure l represents the inside view of a glove, showing the ordinary method of applying a lining thereto; Fig. 2, a view of a glovelining inade according to my invention; Fig. 3, an exaggerated section of the finger ot' an ordinary glove, and Fig. 4 au exaggerated section of the finger of a glove made according to my invention.
In ordinary lined glo ves, one of which is shown turned inside out in Fig. 1, the lining is complete only in the body ofthe glove and thumb, the lining of the ugers consisting simply of strips m at the fronts and backs of said fingers. This plan is objectionable, because it fails to thoroughly protect the fingers, and because the loose strips m are liable to become curled up into wads, which interferes with the drawing of the glove olf and on the hand and the comfort ot' the wearer. These objections I overcome by making the lining in the form of a complete glove, and secured to the fingers and the wrist of the same. It' the lingers of the lining-glove were made in the same manner as those of the outer glove-that is, of four pieces, b b b b, united by four seams, as in Fig. 3the multiplicity of seams in the lingers of both glove and lining would be inconvenient. which the lining-glove is made that each liu ger will comprise but a front portion, b, and a back portion, b', united by not more than two seams, as shown in Fig. 4; and in some cases the outer glove may be cut in a similar manner.
Allaving thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
As a new article of manufacture, a reversible glove of kid or soft leather, in combination with a glove of a woolen or ieecy material, the two gloves being connected at the extrem ities, so that one glove forms a lining for the other, and arranged, furthermore, so that when the gloves are joined together the seams of one glove will not come in contact with the seams of the other, substantially as shown and set forth.
ln test imony whereofI have signed my naine to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
