handbags and containers generally, and relates tion;
This invention relates to improvements in
more speci?cally to an improved lady's pocket
book, the main body portion of which is con
;, structed of a single blank of sheet metal.
Pocketbooks are usually made from leather or
fabric and for the most part are ornamental
only to the extent that external ornaments are
af?xed or secured thereto. It is one of the prin
ods of etching metal can be carried out only upon
metal having a flat surface. In accordance with
the present invention, the body portion of the bag
stood, however, that the method of effecting this
is ?rst formed in a generally rectangular piece
of flat sheet metal, the two opposed transverse
edges of which form the upper edges of the com
pleted bag. The surface of the ?at blank which
forms the outside of the completed bag is next
surfaceornamentation constitutes no part of the
present invention. The blank is bent transverse
ly at the center thereof as indicated at H, which
curved portion constitutes the lower wall of the
mental effects.

Some of the modern, low-cost production meth

versely substantially at the center thereof,_ the
bent portion preferably constituting the arc of a
fairly large circle, which bent portion serves as
30 the bottom of the pocketbook. Flexible end walls
are secured to the bag and a suitable fastener
member secured to the upper edges thereof. The
blank is bent to a point wherein the transverse
edges which constitute the upper edge of the bag
5 are normally separated and when such edges are
secured together by the fastener means, they are

may, of course, be covered with leather or fabric
if desired. The blank is so bent that the side
walls l4 and I 5 of the bag are normally separated
and when they are joined, in meeting relation- 30

suitable closure fastener, they are under tension

under tension so that when the fastener is re
leased, the bag springs open. It is desirable that
the ‘extent of opening of these edges be limited
removes the possibility of injury from the sharp
edges and also provides a mounting for the end
a single, substantially rigid body portion having
no hinges.
Another object of the invention is the provi
45’ sion of an improved lady’s pocketbook which is
more durable than the usual fabric or leather bag
and far more attractive in appearance.

The pocketbook or handbag in its presently
preferred form is made from a single blank of
sheet metal which is substantially rectangular in 15
shape. The blank is preferably ornamented as
by etching and/or enameling, as indicated at 10,
prior to the forming operation. It is to be under
lu cipal objects of the present invention to provide
a novel pocketbook made of sheet metal, which
metal is left uncoveredandwhich is suitably

walls 20, which end walls may be of fabric or 40
leather and which are secured to the binding by
means of rivets or stitching 22. If desired, how
ever, the end walls may be secured directly to
‘the vertical edges of the case by means of rivets
or adhesive or otherwise. The upper edge 24 of 45
the end walls is of such length as to permit the
pocketbook to spring open sufficiently to enable
the user to have easy access to the contents of
the bag, all as indicated in Fig. 2. The interior
of the bag may be lined with leather or fabric, 50
as is well known in the art.
The construction of the bag indicated in Fig. 3
is somewhat similar to the preferred embodiment,
except that the lower wall 26 is formed with a
concave portion 21, thereby providing two bend- 55

weakened as much by opening and closing of the

their entire length and being normally separated,

and 2. In this instance also side walls 30 and 3|

are indicated as having outwardly turned upper
edges 32 which ?atly engage each other when the
case is in a closed position.
In Fig. 4, the modi?ed bag is constructed some
what similar to the bag constituting the preferred
embodiment, in that the body portion is formed
from a single piece of ?at metal which is bent
transversely at the center thereof to form the
lower wall 34 of the bag. Instead of the rectan
gular shape of the bag in the preferred embodi
15 ment, however, the side and top edges indicated
as 35 are formed in one continuous curve, which
edges are joined together in any desired manner.
In this instance, the side walls 36 of the bag are
suitably ornamented as at 31 and the upper por
20 tion of the bag is provided with a handle structure
38 which is secured to the bag by means of. small
rings 39.
Any suitable type of fastener for the upper
edges may be employed and in Fig. 5 a conven
tional slide fastener is illustrated. In this in
stance the bag is formed with side walls 42, a
concave lower wall 43 of the type illustrated in
Fig. 3, substantially ?exible end walls 44 and
upperbeaded edges 45. This bag is further pro
30 vided with a handle structure indicated at 4B.
In this embodiment the end walls are indicated
as being formed from a single piece of material
and fastener means for maintaining said edges
