SATGHEL No. 369,472.. Patented Sept. 6, 1887.

UNITED STATES Pn'rniwr tries,



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 369,472, dated September 6, 1887.

Application filed April 13, 1887. Serial No. 234,570. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that we, HERMAN Seances and Isaac Sermons, of the city of New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Satchels, of which the following is a speciiieation.

Satchels are usually provided on the out side with a pocket which is closed by a wing or flap having a suitable fastening. This pocket is usually used for receiving papers and like articles.

The object of our invention is to provide a new and improved satchel in which the space on the side of the satchel can be utilized for holding. and receiving toilet articles, such as brushes, combs, mirrors, and the like.

i The invention consists in the combination, with a satchel, of a wing or flap fastened to one side of the satchel at the bottom edge and adapted to fold up against the side of the satchel, to which wing loops or holders for the toilet articles are provided. A flap is secured on the same side of the satchel at the top, and a flap is provided at each end, all as will be fully described and set forth hereinafter, and finally pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a side view of our improved satchel closed. Fig. 2 is a side view of the same, showing the wings or flaps at one .side of the satchel open. Fig. 3 is an end view of the satchel, showing one wing open and the top and bottom wings closed.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

On one side, A, of the satchel clasps a, or analogous devices for holding the mirror 13, are provided. At the bottom edge of said side the satchel is provided with a wing or l'lap, (3, which is adapted to fold up against said side of the satchel, and on the inner surface of this wing or flap C are provided a se ries of loops or holders, D, for toilet articles, such as brushes, combs, cosmetics, and the like. On the top of said side of the satchel I provide awing or flap, E, which can be folded over and overlap the upper part of the wing or flap 0. The wing G is provided with fastening devices G, which engage suitable apertures or eyelets, H, on the wing or flap E.

The toilet articles are held on the inside of the wing or flap C, as shown in Fig. 2, and

this flap is folded up against that side of the satchel on which the mirror is held, as shown 5 in Fig. 3. The flaps F are folded over the ends of the said flap O, and the wing or flap E vis folded down over the end flaps, I and over the upper part of the wing or flap 0, the flap E being held in place by means of fastening devices G. The end wings or flaps, F, are held in place by being overlapped by the corners of the flap or wing E, and they pre vent the articles from dropping out at the ends of the satchel.

All the flaps or wings are arranged at the outside of one side wall of the satchel-body, so as to form an exterior attachment for the toilet articles.

One of the advantages of this improved 7o satchel is that the toilet articles do not come in contact with the garments, and do not occupy any of the space in the interior of the satchel.

Having thus described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent In a satchel, the combination,with a satchelbody, of a flap'or wing attached to the bottom edge of one side of the body, and provided on its inner surface with loops or holders for toilet articles, flaps or wings attached to the ends of the satchel-body and adapted to fold over the ends of the above-mentioned flap or wing, and a flap or wing attached to the upper part of the body and adapted to fold over the bottom flap or wing and the end flaps, all said flaps being arranged on the outside of the satchel-body, and connecting devices for conmeeting the top and bottom iiaps or wings when the upper flap is folded over the lower flap, substantially as shown and described.

In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our invention we have signed our names in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
