Patented Sept. 29, 1925.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
WALTER KAHN, OF WOODIERE, NEW YORK.
SUPPORTING CLIP FOR POdKETBOOKS AND THE LIKE.
Application filed lay a, 1925. sum No. 29,111.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that-I, .WALTER KAHN, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Woo'dmere, Queens County, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Supporting Clips for Pocketbooks and the like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to supporting clips and in particular to 'one adapted to be used in combination with pocketbooks, wallets orthe like.
A particular object-of the invention is to provide a clip which can be permanently attached to apocketbook or powder compact in such a manner that the clip will'not be noticeable, and one which will securely support the article on the edge of a garment such as a brassiere, stocking or pocket.
A further object ofthe invention is to provide a clip which will not injure the material which it grips, and one in which the gripping area is large, thereby reducing the possibility of tearing the clothes or losing the artlcle.
Referring to the drawing wherein I have shown apreferred embodiment of my invention:,
Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of a closed wallet or similar article having attached thereto my improved clip;
Fi ure 2 is a front view of the clip and the p ate of which the clip is a part Figure 3 is a section taken on the line 3- 3 of Figure 1 showing how the clip is applied to the article;
Figure 4 is an edge view of the clip as illustrated in Fig. 2;
Figure 5 is an edge view of a modified form of clip having depressions therein to grip the goods to which the clip is applied;
Figure 6 is an edge view similar to Flgure 5 showing a further modification which allows the clip to fit over an edge welt or hem on any garment to which the clip is applied; and
Figure 7 is a front view of the clip as illustrated, in Figures 5 and 6.
Referring to the drawing in detail 5 indicates a pocketbook, purse or bill fold formed usually of two ply leather sewn around the edges as at 6 to give it body. In order'to attach a wallet or the like to a pocket, garment or any other suitable place .on the'person, I provide a plate 7 prefer- CHARLES ably made of thin rigidmetal to which is soldered or otherwise attached the free ends 8 of the legs 9 which-are joined by the loop 10 to form the clip member denoted generally by numeral 11.
The legs 9 of the clip diverge in their upper portions as at 12 and are straight as at 13 in their middle and lower portions. The n-pper ends of the legs of the clip may be dlsposed closer to the plate 7 than the looped end so that a piece of material inserted between the cli '11 and the plate 7 W111 be firmly held. e clip is of course made of tempered wire and highly polished so that it will not mar or damage the clothing.
In attaching the clip to the wallet or purse the plate 7 is inserted between the ply of the material and the latter around its edges is then sewn to hold the late securely in place, it being understood that the plate will be of suitable size as shown ,in'Fig. 1, and the clip will be outside the wallet.
In Fig. 5 the plate is shown as being attached to a powder compact or vanity case which is shown in outline as at 14, the securing means being riveting or soldering as desired.
In making the clip with diverging legs, the area of gripping surface is increased and the liability of tearing the garment which the clip *engahges is minimized, and at the same time a rmer grip is obtained by the clip.
In Figure 4, I have shown how the endsof the legs9 of the clip may be curved outwardly as at 17 away from the edge of the plate to allow a space into which fits the upper enlarged edge. of a garment or rolled stocking or in fact any thickened edge of material over which the clip is passed. In Figure 5 the le s of the clip are provided with spaced in entations 15 and 16 which bear against the plate or material of the wallet or purse, the indentations being a means of holding the material securely beneath the clip and prevent the latter from accidentally slipping oil the edge of a garment.
In Fig. 6 I have shown the combined use of the bulge 17 in the ends of the le s and the indentations 15 and 16 so that t e clip can be used for instance on the edge of a brassiere or stocking, the bulge 17 allowing for the hemmed or corded edge of the garment and the indentations gripping the thin goods to secure a purse or wallet firmly in lace.
a purse or wallet and one which will securely retain an article to a garment or pocket thereof.
Having described claim is a 1. In combination a purse made of plies of material, a rigid late member adapted to be held between said plies by sewing the latter to ther adjacent the edges of said plate, an a clip portion on said plate, havmy invention, What I ing a plurality of indentations therein to retam a piece of material between the clip and the plate.
2. A supporting clip for purses or the like comprising a plate member, a cli comprising eg portions secured to sai plate member and adapted to resilientl retain material between the clip and t e plate member, and a plurality of indentations in the leg portions of said clip member, for increasing the hold of said clip upon the material to be retained.
