UNITED STATES JOSEPH F. FIELD, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
IMPROVEMENT IN GLOVE-FASTENINGS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 155,077, dated September 15, 1874; application filed July 6, 1874.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J OSEPH F. FIELD, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented an Improvement in Gloves, of which the following is a specification:
The object of my invention is to cause a glove to fit closely to the hand and wrist of the wearer without the use of buttons or other fastenings; and I attain this object by extending a spring, A, entirely around the split portion B of the glove, in the manner plainly shown in Figure 1 of the accompanying drawing, so that when released the ends a a of the said spring shall overlap, as shown in Fig. 2, and thus close the glove upon the wrist.
The spring is entirely concealed within the material of the glove, and may be secured to the latter in any suitable manner; but I prefer to simply stitch it in place, as indicated by the dotted lines as in Fig. 1.
The spring may also be variously shaped; but I prefer to construct it of a single piece of wire, bent to the form shown, as I have ascertained, by experiment, that a spring of this form is most suitable for the purpose, while it possesses the further advantage of presenting no sharp or abrupt ends, which would be apt to force their way through the material of the glove.
The edge view, Fig. 3, shows the method of bending the spring to conform to the shape of the hand of the wearer of the glove.
I am aware that springs have been combined with the wristlets of gloves; but they have always extended entirely around the lat ter, thus rendering it impossible to fold the glove, which was consequently clumsy and inconvenient to carry in the pocket. This objection it will be evident is entirely overcome by my invention.
1 claim The combination, substantially as described, of a spring, A, with the split portion B of a glove, for the purpose specified.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
