Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 15, 1908.

Application filed July 14, 1908. Serial No. 443,440.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WVILLIAM AUs'rIN DAY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Bellingham, in the county of VVhatcom and State of Washington, have invented con tain new and useful Improvements in Berry- Holders, of which the following is a specification.

Referring to the drawings forming a part hereof Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improvement in place. Fig. 2 is a similar View showing it detached, and Fig. 3 is a central vertical section.

The present embodiment of my invention comprises a cone-shaped receptacle or bag A, having at opposite points in the upper edge thereof, out out portions B, C, for a purpose to be presently described.

The receptacle is formed of a single sheet of material folded to form the receptacle, the adjoining edges being secured together by rivets D,-or in any other suitable manner. The inner face of the receptacle is enameled as shown at A, the receptacle being formed from a sheet having one face enameled, which face is turned inwardly.

Near one of the cut away portions B, a strap G has one of its ends riveted as at H, and the other is adapted to engage a buckle I, secured to the receptacle on the opposite side of the cutaway portion. Adjacent to the cut away portion C at one side thereof, is a plurality of transverse parallel slits M, and through the slits is passed a strap 0, whose ends are secured together by a buckle Q.

In operation the third and fourth finger of the wearer are inserted in the loop formed by the strap 0, and the strap G is buckled around the wrist of the same hand as shown in Fig. 1. Each hand may be if desired, supplied with one of the holders, and as the berries are picked from the briers by the thumb and first and second fingers, they are dropped into the holder which when full is emptied into a larger receptacle.

The conical shape of the container and the enameled inner surface thereof permits the same to be easily cleaned, every part of the container being accessible.

I claim:

1. A berry holder comprising a cone shaped receptacle having an enameled inner face, and having cutaway portions at each side of the upper edge thereof, for receiving the hand and fore arm of the wearer, the receptaclebeing provided with parallel slots adj acent to the cut away portion for the hand, a strap passing through the slots, and having its free ends secured together to form a loop for the fingers, a strap secured to the receptacle on one side of the cut-away portion for the fore arm, and a buckle on the other side for engaging the strap.

2. A berry holder comprising a conical receptacle having on opposite sides of its upper edge cut-away portions for receiving the hand and fore arm of the wearer, and means adjacent said cut-away portions for engaging the hand and arm.

3. A berry holder comprising a receptacle having on opposite sides of its upper edge cut-away portions for receiving the hand and forearm of the wearer, and means adjacent said cut-away portions for engaging the hand and arm.
