in Figure 4 of the drawings wherein one of the Y fingers is shown in transverse cross section and it will be observed that the seams I3-I3 are located Well around on the front of the iingers with the back of the iinger sections I2 covering the back and the end portions of the side of the iingers.

The finger"v backufsections I2 are also shown f in a patternlike arrangement in Figure 5 of the drawings and it will be observed by referring thereto that the longitudinal seams joining their edges I2A-I2A to one another are those covered. 1

by the back guard l section III heretofore referred to, while the increased width of the end portions of the iinger back Vsections I2 enables the seams I3-I3 joining the same to be located Well around the front of the glove and away.

from the vulnerable back portion.

The palm section I I of the glove has finger-#like extensions IIA-vIIAextending outwardly and joined; by the rseams I3--I3 tothe nger back I2. The construction is particularly desirable as the inturned longitudinally extending seams form ridges, as best shown in Figure 3 of the drawings, which serve to position the back of the glove above the welders hand so that heating or burning of the hand is impossible.

Thenovelty inthe' present disclosure therefore resides in the'formationiof the linger back sections I2, the positioning ofthe longitudinal seams yI3--I3 joining the same to one another and to the narrow palm extensions IIA-I IA and in ...the provision of the back guard section I4 forming a loosely positioned protective element of Qalsoftyiiexible nature over the entire back of sections I2 so as to complete the'glove structure.Y 7 The back I'I of the thumb portion of the glove Y is formed as a separate section attached vto the palm'fwhile the front of the thumb is formed as an-integral piecevof thepalm II. A reinforc- 1 ing'strip I 8kis positioned `on the palmgII andV covers the seam joining the back I 'Ir Vof-vthe"4 thumb portion and the palm` I I. An additional reinforcing section I9 is positioned on the inside portion of the'cui vIII and overlies the same, as.

best shown in- Figure 1 of the drawings'. It will'4 beiore's'etfforth. A Having thus described my invention,' 'what vthe-'glcvn'vesV to` protect the seams which would otherwise be exposed in a glove formed on the pattern of that herein disclosed.

It will occur to those skilled in the art that the back guard section I4, while illustrated and hereinbefore described as being positioned on the'backorfthe left k,hand glove, may alternately be positioned'on Athebaol: of "thefrighthand gloveoronkboth gloves of a pair if 'desir ed; `Theb'acl: guard'sectio'n I is cutand anixed' in exactly'the samemanner sov as to berinter-v changeable'fronileftto right hand rglovejiat the time of `manufactureif desired. y f

It Ywilljthus beseen that the several'objcts of the invention vare claimis: A A Y, l. In a welders glove comprising theA usual back, palm and cuil" portions, narrow-iinge'r'lexfu `tensions on the palm portion and a-plurality of relatively' ywide nger 'back sections portions ofwhich areY secured to -one another Vand `to the- Y sides oi' the palm vportion by'ilongitudinal seams,1 y inturned seams securing the remainingportionsqgof the flngerbacl; sections'to the narrow vnger extensions, aback guard VsectionA comprising 'a' piece of material secured on the outer side-of4 the back portion of the glove byv inturnedv seams back sections I2 so "as to cover the longitudinalseams I3, the seams positioning'and 'locating the back guard section I4 being the inturned transverse seams Iii-I6 and the inturned longi tudi'nally extending side seams I5-I5. f i Y It will thus'be'se'en that a welders glove has beendisclosed which has-al1 the desirable iiexible characteristics'of'an ordinary workmans glove and possesses the desirable protective'features of a -welders glove.

torch striking` the back of the glove -as disclosedv herein-will in no way lharm the same asrnone It :will occur to those skilledin thev arty that sparks or particles of metal from a welders l.

of the seams are Aexposed andtherefore none"- can beburned'and opened. Additionally, theVv several portions of the glove are llined Vwith a suitableiabric whichv is cemented to the Vinner y several portions of the glove *and particularly end sections thereof.' f 'I'he lining material is indicated by the numeral 20 and is sewed to the several portions of'the glove by the seams 13A-'I3 and thev seams I5-I5.' This construction places insulation on the sides and back of each of the iingers and the back of the hand and thus protects` the workmanis hand. It willV vthe finger back sections I 2 and the enlarged Y forms,"in eifectja third heat insulating layer betweenthevbackV of the 'welders hand and the workpiece,v the other two being the' layer ofiinsulating" material mld-'17h12y fingerv baok Section at both sides of Vtheglove and transverse seams at bothY ends of ,the guard and loverlying the first mentioned vlongitudinal seams between the finger back sections Yandfwith said loosely overlying'the glove back. v 2.
