SPEGIFICATI ON forming part of Letters Patent No. 532,880, dated January 22, 1895. Appiano.. hea october 15,1894. serai No. 525,858. (No model.)
To. whom t may concern.-
Be it known that I, FELIX H. HUNICKE, of the city of St. Louis, State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Gloves, of which thefollowing is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part A,
A further object of my invention is to con-V zo struct the gauntlet of the glove with a flexible piece of material and also with a snap and button, whereby -the rear end of the gauntlet may be folded over in such a manner as to thoroughly inclose the lower end of 2 5 the coat-sleeves of the wearer.
A further object of my invention is the providing of a tongue or strap, whereby the glove or mitten may be more easily positioned upon the hand.
My invention consists in certain novel features ot' construction, combination and arrangement of parts, hereinafter described and claimed.
Referring to the drawings: Figurel is a 3 5 plan view of a glove constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on the indicated line 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a view of the gauntlet of a glove that is provided with a 4o iiexible piece of material and also withabuttonl and snap. Fig. 4 is a view of the gauntlet, the same being folded over and held in this position by means of abutton and snap.
Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken approximately at the juncture of the rear end of the gloveor mitten and the gauntlet, and showing an ordinary strap and buckle, whereby the glove or mitten may be tightened around vthe wrist of the wearer.
Fig. 6 is a crosssectional view taken approximately on the 5o line 6-6 of Fig. 4. Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the tongue or strap of which I make use in carrying out my invention.
Referring by numerals to the accompanying drawings, 1 indicates the glove or mitten, 55 the same being of ordinary construction and provided with the ordinary knit woolen or fur lining 2, said lining projecting some distance beyond the rear end of the outer glove or mitten 1 and doubled back as indicated by 6o the numeral 3. A rectangular leather tongue or strap 4 is sewed tothe outside of the woolen or fur lining and extends a short distance beyondI the rear end of the same.
The gauntlet 6 is constructed of leather of 6 5 .suitable stiffness and gradually enlarges t0- ward the rear end thereof. The forward edges thereof overlap the rear edges of the mitten or glove 1, and said overlapping edges, the tongue 4 and the lining 2 are all securely 7o sewed or stitched together, said stitching being designated by the numeral 7. In some instances it will be found advantageous to secure by sewing to the outside of the mitten or glove and upon the wrist thereof, straps 8 75 and 9, the strap 8 being provided with a buckle lO. By this construction the mitten or glove can be tightened around the wrist of the wearer and all cold air, rain and snow entirely excluded.
The modification of the gauntlet hereinbefore described is shown in Figs. 3, 4 and 6. In this instance a flexible piece of leather 11, the same being approximately triangular in plan View, forms a portion,of the gauntlet, and to one edge of said flexible portion is sewed a small strap 12 thatis provided with an ordinary snap 13. At a suitable point nearthe edge of the gauntlet 6 is a button 14, with which the snap 13 is adapted to en- 9a gage.
My improved glove or mitten is placed upon the hand in the ordinary manner, the strap 4 serving as a means for pulling said glove or mitten on. The lower portions of the sleeves of the coat and overcoat of the wearer are intended to pass over the rear end of the woolen or fur lining 2 within the gauntlet 6, thereby forming a lap joint between thelower ends of the sleeves and the rear end of the lining. This very thoroughly and efficiently excludes the cold air, snow, rain, 85o., from the hand and wrist of the wearer, the Wrist of the wearer being very eectually covered by the doubleback rear end of the lining 2.
When the gloves are constructed with a button and snap, after the coat-sleeves have been positioned around the rear ends of the lining, the gauntlet is folded over and the snap 13 positioned upon the button 14, as clearly shown in Fig. 4. This more eliectually excludes the cold, snow, v(Snc.
Thus it will be seen how I have constructed a glove that thoroughly protects the hand and wrist of the wearer from cold,snow, rain, &c., said glove possessing superior advantages in point of simplicity, durability and general efficiency.
What l claim is- V As an article of manufacture, a gauntletglove, comprising a hand-portion 1, lining 2 projecting at the open end of said hand-portion and provided with the doubled-back portion 3, tongue or strap 4 sewed to the outside of said lining, and a gauntlet 6 sewed to the hand portion and the lining, whereby said gauntlet may pass over and around the lower ends of the coat-sleeves of the wearer, while the latter lap over said projectinglining.
In testimony Whereoil I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
