BAG FRAME STRUCTURE
George S. Merk, Flushing, N. [11, assignor to
United-Carr Fastener Corporation, Cambridge,
Mass.,_ a corporation of Massachusetts
Application April 8, 1935, Serial No. 15,177
4 Claims. (Cl. 150-29)
‘My invention aims to provide improvements same manner and therefore I shall describe only
in bag frame structures and relates particularly one construction.
to the attachment of ornaments thereto.
In the drawing which illustrates a. preferred
embodiment of my invention:—
‘Figure 1 is a plan view of one form of my in~
vention which includes two ornament pieces, one
being shown in normal position and one being
shown moved part way into position;
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the frame struc
ture shown in Fig. 1 with parts of the side ‘mem
bers of the frame broken away;
Fig. 3 is an enlarged section taken on the line
3—3 of Fig. 1 showing the manner of mounting
15 the ornament member;
Fig. 4 is a section taken on the line 4-4 of
Fig. 3;
Fig. 5 is a plan view of the channel member
which supports the ornament;
20
Fig. 6 is a section taken on the line 6--6 of
Fig. 5; and
Fig. 7 is an enlarged bottom plan view of the
ornament before attachment.
While I am aware of the fact that bag frame

ornaments of various types and designs have been
attached to bag frames by channel members. I
believe that I am the ?rst to provide the com
bination of elements hereinafter more speci?cally
described and claimed, particularly with refer

manner that the mounting means is concealed
and, therefore, the full effect of the ornament or
ornaments is secured.

Referring now to the particular structure se
lected for illustration of my invention, I have
shown a well-known type of bag or vanity frame
used in the manufacture of ladies’ handbags and
vanities. This frame includes a pair of U-shaped
members I and 2 (Fig. 4) arranged in side-by-side
relationship and hinged together at their free
ends 3 (Fig. 2) in the usual manner.
These
frame members have the usual top portions 4 and
5 upon which are usually mounted the looking or
45 latching means 6 (Figs. 1 and 2) of any well
known construction for holding the frames in
bag-closing positions.
In order to ornament the top of the bag frame
to harmonize with the lock 6 or in any other suit
50 able decoratlve manner, I have secured at oppo
site sides of the lock structure 6 ornament pieces
‘I and 8 which are substantially half round in
My improved construction for securing an or
nament includes a sheet metal channel member 9
secured to the top bar 4 of the frame member I
at ‘one side of the lock means 6 and this chan
nel member has side walls 'I ll--| 0 preferably con
verging as shown in Figs. 4 and 5. This channel
member 9 may be attached to the top bar member
4 in any suitable manner. In the drawing I?"
have shown it as being attached by means of
prongs I |—H located adjacent to the ends there
of and passing through the upper wall of the top
bar member 4 and clenched against the under
side thereof, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 3.

The ornament 8 may be’ formed of any suit
able material and in any desired shape but it is
preferred to have a ?at bottom face. The par
ticular ornaments which I have shown are made
of solid ‘plastic material and in the bottom face I
have formed grooves l2--l2 preferably converg
ing as they enter the material so as to cooperate
with the converging walls Ill-Ill of the channel
member. These slots I2—l2 begin at one end
of the ornament member 8 and terminate short of 25
the other end (Fig. 7) so that they are not ex
posed when the bag structure is viewed from one
end. Since the grooves l2-l2 cooperate with the
side walls Ill-l0 the ornament may be attached
to the channel member by sliding it endw'lse after 30
entering the walls in the groove, as shown at the
left-hand sides of Figs. 1 and 2. In the particu
lar structure illustrated the ornaments 1 and 8
are moved longitudinally until they abut the lock
member 6, as clearly shown at the right-hand at
sides of Figs. 1 and 2.
Any suitable means may be employed to hold
the ornaments ‘I and 8 in their normal positions
against accidental longitudinal removal. One
way in which this may be accomplished is to pro
vide a yieldable ?nger or detent member l3 in
the bottom of the channel 9 (Figs. 3, 5, and 6)
which is depressed into a slot [4 (Fig. 3) as the
ornament passes overit during the engaging oper
ation and ?nally the spring ?nger or detent l3
snaps into a recess l5 (Figs. 3 and ‘7) in the bot
tom of the ornament 8 to hold it securely in po
sition. If it is desirable to remove the ornament
it can be accomplished by exerting su?icient pres
sure to release the detent l3 from the recess l4. 50
My invention is simple, compact and reduced
to a minimum number of parts. It is also par
ticularly desirable because it decorates without
cross-section and of a width preferably to- cover
the top members 4 and 5. Each ornament mem ' exposing attaching means for the ornaments
55 ber 1 and 8 is secured to the bag frame in the
