United States Patent 0 Des. 177,475 Patented Apr. 17, 1956 HAND LUGGAGE OR SIMILAR ARTICLE Sol Kolller, West Warwick, R. I.

Application January 3, 1955, Serial No. 33,789

Term of patent 14 years FIG.|


Fig. l is a top plan view of an article of luggage, showing my new design;

Fig. 2- is a side elevational view of the article shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is an end elevational view of the article shown in Fig. l;

Fig. 4 is a bottom plan view of the article shown in Fig. 1, and

Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 55 of Fig. 2.

The characteristic feature of my design consists in the provision of a smooth metallic band completely circumscribing the article and providing a raised portion thereon, the band being bordered by portions of the article contrasting in color with the band, and having a bright surface as compared to the bordering portions, the band thereby being adapted to stand out from the surface of the article and be thrown into sharp relief by the contrasting brightness and colors.
