CHARLES E. CHADDOCK AND RICHARD G. CHILDDOCK, 0F CAiNTON. OHIO.
To al whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, CHARLES E. CHAD- voon and lilljlin'illl) (l. Unnmmon, citizens of the United States, boil: residing at Canton, in the county of Shark and State of Ohio, have. invented certain new and useful linprmennrnts in Gloves, of which lie following is a specification.
This invention relates to gloves and infers particularly to an impro ed ronstruction of n glove hn-h espemully adapted for usage in hard work.
An object of this invention is to form 2!.
glow by the employment of two dies or by 5 two separate stumps, one die being for the body poi'lion of the glow, while the second die is for the llnnnb piece wlllL'il is used in connection with the lnilf-fonrchetle formed integrally with lhe body of the glove.
It is well-known that in the glove art the opposite sides of gloves have been provided with padding to inure-use their ellieienoy in retaining the warmth of the hand as well as to plOlect the hand from chafing when working. ll is also well-known that the pudding is easily displaced incident to the use of the glove and Chill. the 8 1118 Webbles and creases whereby an uneven gripping surface is the resulc as wel. as louving certain portions of 'the hand. unprotented.
One of the objects of this invention is to overcome this objection by forming a padding or thickness to the opposite sides of the glove 'lhn: is rigid wiih respeot to the glove and ilnit i-annot be displaced by creasing the glove in: by any rubbing action against, the opposite sides of the same. This object is edectcd by a peculiar shin-Eng which will be herein'fter specifically set, forth. Fin'therinore, iL- is known that a tight fitting glove gives but little warmth, and that a loose fitting glove cannot be conveniently worn when working.
This invention aims to provide a glove which overcomes these disadvantages by forming 2L glove which conforms to the hand. and in which are positioned pockets or air chambers to admit n film of air to accumulnte between the hand and the side of the glove which heated by the hand, and which thus ull'or'ls a greater PIOlIOCllUH against the cold for the hand.
' ln conjuncuon with those objects, the in- \eliimn providi-s :i glut 3 wilhn shined portion so arranged as to form gripping sur- 2 same are shirred or gathered, in; is d:sc losed Specification of Letters Parent.

faces, whereby a firm hold may be had upon vurious tools and implements handled by the workman when wearing the improved glove. v v
T he invention has for a further object the utilizing of the excess material in the body portion and in the central portion of the same which covers the palm of the hand, by reinforcing the glove in such a manner as to provide a. shirreg' 'rOl'iiOl'l in the palms which also protects the hands of the wearer.
The invention has for a still further 0bthe provision of a glove which possesses the. above enumeraied advantages and which inny be applied to uliher the led. or the right hand, the Shirred portion of the same forming the glove whichfitssnugly to the hand and enables the free movunent of the hand.
For :1 full understanding of the invention reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which: 7
Fignm 1 is a persgective view of the compiste glove, Fig. 2 is 'a section on the line 2-2 of eig. l, and Fig. 3 is a plan view of thohlmlks after being cut.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following descri tion and indicated in all the views of t e drawings by the same reference characters.
Referring specifically to the drawings, the numeral 10 designates the nil-in blank of the glove which is so stamped as to provide a plurality of half-fingers 11 along one of the longitudinal edges of the blank which are formed of such a length as to correspond with one another upon the overlapping of the blank and to accommodate the respective fingers of the wenrer. In the'npposite edge of the blank 10:: half-fourchelte 12 is formed to support 2'. thumb iece 13 which is stitched about the edges 0 the same and. also about the edgesof the blank 10 from which the lmlf-fonrchette 12 is out.
In forming the glove the blank 10 is overlapped upon itself and sewed at its outer side as at 14 to secure the aiiacent edges of the blank 10. The huff-fingers 11 are likewise stitched at their adpoent edges to form the fingers of the glove vedisclmed in Fig. 2. It will be noted that when theglove is thus formed the palm of the same will be of a width greater than that of the hand of the wearer and for the purpose of reducing the width of the glove the palms of the at 15, to take up ueh Width. In this formamaterial and will give additional wear to the glove a; the point where the greatest t friction i: had upon the same. The glove thus f rmed may also be utilized for the purpose of protecting the hands of the wearer in working or otherwise, by reason of the shining.
A wri tbz1nd 16 is employed which i5 ecured to the inner edge of theglove in the usual manner and may be formed of a anilieient size to accommodate the blank 10 after the shirring of the same.
4 Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
1. In a glove, the combination of a blank adapted to be folded upor itself, and having: a plurality of fingers formed along one edge of the same, a half fourehette stamped from the opposite edge of the blank. and a thumb-v piece stitehed about Filltl half t'mn'chette and about the adjm-ent edges of Said blank, said blank being; shirred at its opposite RldPS to prewnt a reini'orved palm and bael; to the glow for the proteetion of the wearer.
A gloxe having shirred opposite sides to form roughened gripping surfaces, said Slllltml ides also forming air pockets to admit a film of air between the glove and the hand, said shirrrd itles providing reinforcenmnts tor the protet-tion of the hand in gripping an object.
In te timony whereof we afiix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
