SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 713,239, dated November 1 1, 1902. Application filed June 4, 1902. Serial No. 110,220. (No model.)
To ctZZ whom it ntay concern: 7
Be it known that I, EMELIA PETERSON, a subject of the King of Sweden and Norway, residing at WVashington, in the District of Columbia, have'invented certain new and use-- ful Improvements in Sleeve-Protectors; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to Wearing-apparel, has especial reference to that class known as sleeve-protectors, has for its object a cheap, serviceable, and comfortable sleeve-protector, and consists in certain improvements in construction, which will be fully disclosed in the following specification and claims.
In the accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification, Figure 1 represents a perspective of my invention as applied for use; Fig. 2, a like view of the sleeve-protector detached; and Fig. 3 a transverse section on line 3 3, Fig. 2.
Reference being had to the drawings and the designating characters thereon, 1 indicates the body of the sleeve-protector; 2, the reinforcing-bands of textile or other suitable material and which for ornamental purposes "may be of varied colors other than that of the protector. The body is tubularand frustoconical in form and is provided with longitudinal corrugations-3, which extend from end to end and formair channels or passages 4 on the inside of the protector to provide for circulation of air around the wrist and forearm of the wearer, and the corrugations also impart elasticity to the protector, allowing the hand to be forced through the small end of the protector, after which the protector contracts andassu mes its normal position. A further effect of the corrugations is that they form a cushion for the forearm of the wearer and relieve the muscles of pressure.
The protector is preferably made of corrugated paper or stiffened fabric, and the reinforcing-bands 2 maybe attached by stitches or sewing or by a suitable cement.
The sleeve-protector as constructed is light, durable, comfortable, and may be made quite ornamental by using colored material for the body and reinforcing-bands of a difierent shade of the same color as the body or an entirely different color and by its elasticity adheres to the sleeve of the wearer without producing discomfort, for the reason that free escape of the heat from the arm is afforded through the air channels or passages 4:.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim is 1. An improved article of manufacture, a sleeve-protector provided with longitudinal corrugations forming air passages or channels and having reinforcing-bands at its ends.
2. An improved article of manufacture, a frusto-conical, tubular and longitudinallycorrugated sleeve-protector, provided with reinforcing-bands at its ends.
3. An improved article of manufacture, a frusto-conical and longitudinally-corrugated sleeve-protector having air-channels formed on its inner surface.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence'of two witnesses.
