COMBINED POCKET-BCOK AND CIGAR-CASE.
$PEGIFIG'ATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 522,747, dated July 10, 1894,
Application filed April 28, 1894.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EMIL WALDENBERGER, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Pocket-Book and Cigar-Case, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a combination pocket-book and cigar-case, and its objects are to furnish an ornate, cheap, strong and serviceable article adapted for the holding of bills as well as cigars and the like.
My invention consists of a cigar-case formed from a piece of suitable flexible body-material, to which is attached at one end a flexible partition-web, the latter and the body-material being so folded and then stitched as to provide two folding wings, in one of which said partition-web is folded under so as to provide a side-pocket while the portion of the body-material on the inner side of said wing has a portion removed to provide a top-pocket for holding cigars; and my invention further consists of certain features of construction to be hereinafter particularly described and then claimed.
In the accompanying draWings,-Fignre 1 is a perspective view showing the combined pocket-book and cigar-case open. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the body-blank by which the book is mainly formed, the dotted lines showing the point of attachment of the partitionweb thereto. Fig. 3 is a transverse section on line 3 3, and Fig. 4 is a transverse section on line 4 4, both of the sections being taken through Fig. 1.
Similar letters of reference indicate correspending parts.
The body-blank A shown in Fig. 2 is made of an integral piece of flexible material, preferably soft leather, which along its longest sides is provided with opposite wide flaps B, B located at the ends of the two oblong central portions a, a, that fold on the line 0. At the sides of the central portions a, a, are the end portions d of, which are adapted to fold over onto the central portions a, a, on the lines 0, (3, respectively. The upper part of the end portion a has a portion removed or cut away to form a deep recess a. This cutting away is not usually done until the parseas No. 509,299. (No as.)
tition-web D is attached thereto at d by stitch.
ing, but it may be done before if desired.
Being provided with the blank describedI am enabled to produce the combined pocketbook and cigar-case shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 4. This is made by first folding the attached partitionweb D, which is stitched to the blank so that its dressed and undressed surfaces will be reversed to the dressed and undressed surfaces of the blank, onto the end-portion a and the latter and the web D are then folded over, on the line. C, so that the web will be placed between the portions a and 0, of the blank. Next the end-portion a is folded over onto the portion a, on the line 0 the parts so folded being new pressed so as to be sufficiently creased. Finally the flaps B, B, are turned over the edges adjacent thereto and lines of stitchinge and eformed respectively along the top and bottom of the article, the stitching 6 being preferably run along the adjacent edges of the web D and the portions a, a, of the body-blank. A pocket-book will thus be produced which comprises two wings or flaps W, W respectively which may be folded on and are connected at the central line C. The wing W will now have a side pocket f, formed between the portion a, which constitutes the outer wall of said wing, and the partition web D, and it will also have an outer top-pocket f formed between the web D and the cut-away piece 0. of the body-material. The side-pocket f is adapted to receive money, cards, &'O., and the top-pocket f is for receiving cigars. As the respective sides, that is to say the dressed and undressed, of the partitiomweb D were reversed to those of the blank, when stitching the former to the latter at d, it will be seen that in the completed article the dressed side of the partition-web will be presented outward so that a finish will be imparted to the body above the top-pocket f, and the incomplete appearance usually imparted by the undressed surface of the body-material, were the partition-web not provided and reversed, is obviated. An ad ditional side-pocket will also havebeen formed in the wing W, and if desired two side-pockets g, g, may be formed therein by stitching in a partition-web H.
Having thus described my invention, I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. Ablank for forming a combined pocketbook and cigar-case, the same being provided with Wide top and bottom-flaps, an end-portion having a topq'ecess and extending beyond said flaps, and a web stitched to the outer edge of said end portion, said web being adapted to fold under the end portion and said flaps to fold over the end-portion and the web, substantially as set forth.
