Schwartzbard, New Brunswick- N. J., as-

Signor to. K & K Leather Goods 00., Inc., New

Brunswick, N. J.

ApplicationJ-une 30, 1947, Serial No. 758,037 3 Claims. (01. 150- 28) This invention relates to hand bags and the like.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a hand bag which is reversible so that two different exterior colors, grains, or materials, may be provided at different times whereby to adapt the bag to the color scheme of the wearer. 7

It is another object of the present invention to provide a reversible bag wherein interior parts will not have to be pulled outwardly and wherein the adjustment maybe made by :a simple folding operation of the 'bagparts'. Each one of said parts, being inde'pendent of one another, may be swung on rings so that the reversing operation can be effected in a simple and expeditious man ner.

Other objects of the present invention are to provide a reversible hand bag which is of simple construction, inexpensive to ma-nufacture and efiicient in operation.

According to the invention, two separate parts constituting bags in themselves are formed with one side of one col-or and with the other side of another color. Each of the bags have pocket openings closed by zipper arrangements. These bags are connected together at their opening ends by two rings in much the same manner as that in which a looseleaf notebook is assembled. The bag parts can be adjusted either one way or the other to provide different exterior colors. When the bags have been adjusted they are retained in their adjusted osition by a button hole arrangement on each end of the bag and near the bottom thereof.

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 claims 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 perspective view of the hand bag embodying the features of the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a transverse cross sectional View taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the bag with the pocket openings being opened.

Fig. 4 is an end elevational view of the bag.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the bag after the bag parts have been released and partly reversed.

Fig. 6 is a perspective view after the bag has been reversed to display a different color.

Fig. '7 is a fragmentary perspective view of the bag modified to include connecting straps.

to 6, includes a pair of bag parts H]. Each bag part It has a side H termed of material of one color such as black and an opposite side 12 formed of another color such as white. The two bags or bag parts are connected together by rings l3 in a looseleaf notebook fashion. These rings preferably are of rigid material and of such size as to permit a free adjustment of the bag parts over them. On the end of each bag part are respectively a button M or a button loop 14 whereby when the bag parts have been folded together they may be locked in place against opening movement.

Each bag has a pocket lining l5 whose half portions are connected together at their bottom as indicated at l6 and has zipper elements ll connected across its top which are closed by a slide 18. The slide l8 may have a chain l9 and a ring 21 thereon to provide a good grasp by which the adjustment of the slide can be effected. About the pocket lining is covering material for-med of two parts 22 and 23 and joined together at their bottom ends as indicated at 24. At the top the covering pieces are hemmed, as indicated at 25, and are joined to the lining l5. Upon the side of the lining l5 may be provided a pocket 26 for the purpose of retaining a mirror 21.

Grommets 28 are provided in the bag material for the rings l3. Either way the bag parts are turned, the pocket openings will be accessible from the top of the bag. The same loop and button at the end of the bag will be connected together regardless of which way the bag parts are turned.

In the modification of the invention shown in Figs. 7 and 8, straps 3| are connected to the bottoms of the bag parts and they have respectively male and female fastener elements '33 and 34 which are connected together t prevent gloves or the like articles from sliding between the bag parts when disposed therein or articles which might be lost by being put in the bag openings.

While I have illustrated and described the pre- 'ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
