SPEGIPICATIQN forming part of Letters Patent No. 22.214.171.1243, dated April 7, 1885.
Application filed February 12, 1885. (No model.) W
To aZZ whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JULrUs LAMBERT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Bags, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a bag of that class known as"belt or chatelaine bags; and the objects of the invention are to provide such bags with a rear pocket and novel means to form a guide into such pocket, and to provide such guide with means whereby the bag can be suspended from'a belt.
The objects of my invention I accomplish in the manner and by the construction of parts hereinafter described and claimed, reference being made to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a front view. a transverse section in the plane mm, Fig. 1.
Similar letters indicate corresponding parts.
In the drawings, the letter A designates the bag, which is provided with one or more pockets, B, with the ordinary closing-flap, O, and with means for suspending the bag from a belt or other part of a dress.
In the example represented by the drawings the bag is provided with two loops, through which the body-belt is drawn; butinstead of these two loops any other means for suspending the bag may be applied. WVith this bag I have combined a rear pocket, D, which is open at the top, so thatit can be con veniently reached by'the hand of the person wearing the bag, while the contents of said rear pocket are practically safe against ab- Fig. 2 is I straction by unauthorized persons, the pocket being close to the body of the person wearing the bag, so that if an attempt is made to pick said pocket the person wearing the bag will feel it at once. et, D, is provided with a flap, F, which exwhich forms a guide for the hand of the person wearing the bag, so that said hand readily same time this upwardly-extending flap inrparts to the bag a novel appearance, by which my bag can easily be distinguished.
by Letters Patent, is-
pockets, B, a rear pocket, D, and a flap, F, extending upward above the front pocket or pockets from the back of the rear pocket, to form a guide into the latter, substantially as described.
2. The bag A, having a front pocket or pockets, B, a rear pocket, D, and a flap, F, extending from the backof the rear pocket upward above the front pocket or pockets, to form a guide into the rear pocket, said guidefiap having attached devices at its upper edge for suspending the bag from a belt, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof Ihave hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
