(o1. 2te-L86) 2 ` This invention relates in general to coat hang- 1 ers, but more particularly to coat hangers having both artistic and utilitarian characteristics whereby garments may not only be supported when not in use but at the same time they may be deodorized, scented and insured against at tack by moths and other insects. 5, When considered in connection with usual and ordinary garment hangers, a device embodying and a lower bar 3 which is suitably joined to the extremities ,of the upper lbar I. As in Fig. 6, the upper bar la may suiiice for certain pur poses and the lower bar is omitted. As in Fig. 8, the upper bar I b and the lower bar 3b are formed differently from the corresponding bars in Fig. 1, and the same is true of the hooks 2o and 2b of Figs. 6 and 8, respectively. In all of the forms shown herein as well as in other conceivable forms not shown, at the ex usual functions of such devices, a hanger of sub tremities of the bars I, I a and I b, I provide Sub stantially conventional design but includes a pock stantially similar pockets or compartments 4 and et for holding a quantity of aromatic material 5 which, when the lower bars 3 or 3b are provided, such as lavender, anda separate pocket for hold extend inwardly from the junctions of the bars I ing a cake or quantity of insecticide, such as 15 and3, as in Fig. 1, and are formed between said moth preventive. I prefer to form my hanger bars. Said pockets are adapted to hold a quan with an upper bar curved to ñt and receive a. coat tity of scent emitting` material and a suitable or the like, a hook extended upwardly therefrom moth preventive, or insecticide, respectviely, or, by means of which the hanger may be `as usual if desired, a suitable deodorant in lieu of one of suspended from a support, a lower horizontally 20 the other elements. disposed bar for supporting trousers or skirts, and Referring particularly to Fig. 1, bars I and 3 a pair of pockets or compartments formed be _are arranged ilatwise and the pockets `4 and 5 tween and at the extremities of the upper and are of rectangular cross section as viewed from lower bars for holding the scented material, de the planes of lines 2_2 and 4_4. Pocket 4 has odorant or insecticide. Also, said pockets or com.. .25 n similar sides 6 and 'I which may overlie the edges partments are formed with `perforated walls of bars I and v3 and may be suitably attached through which the contained materials may give thereto or be within the planes of the edges of off their scent and means for inserting the ma said. bars, as may be desired.

Pocket 5 has sides 8 and 9 and is terial, or combinations of materials, depending of substantially the same size as pocket 4 and is upon the desired results and the prices at which also similarly formed. Access to pockets 4 and they may be sold. To such ends I have shown in 5 is afforded by closures I0 and I I, respectively, the appended drawing several forms of coat hang 35 which are of similar form and overlie the inner ers embodying my invention, subject to modi edges of the sides of the pockets, as shown in ñcation, within the scope of the appended claims, Figs. 3 and 4. Said closures may be held in without departing from the spirit thereof. In closed position by any suitable means, as for in said drawing: stance by taper pins I2 which are insertable Fig. 1 is an elevational view of one form of 40 through apertures in bars I and 3. the device; In the event the hanger of Fig. l is made of Figs. 2, 3, and 4 are, respectively, sectional views plastic, the hook 2 may be cemented to a central of the same on lines 2-2, 3-3 and 4-4 of Fig. 1; portion of bar I; if formed of metal, said hook Fig. 5 is a fragmentary section on line 5-‘5 of may be welded or riveted to said bar; or if made Figß; 45 of wood the hook may be attached by any suit Fig. 6 is a partial View of a modified form of able means to said bar. Irrespective of the ma my improvements provides, in addition to the hanger; Fig. 7 is a section of the same on line 1-1 of terials used for providing the hanger, the pock ets 4 and 5 may be formed of any suitable ma terials of the same character as or different from Fig. 8 is a fragmentary view of still another 50 those used for the hanger proper. Fig. 6; and form of hanger embodying my improvements. In my designs, as in conventional coat hang ers, I provide an upper bar I (Fig. 1), a hook 2 extended upwardly from said bar and either at tached thereto or integrally formed therewith, 55 In the form of hanger shown in Figs. 6 and 7, the lower bar 3 may be omitted and the pockets 4 and 5 suspended fom the «bar I a which, as shown, but not necessarily, is of circular cross section and is preferably narrower than the form 2,407,015 3 4 insects from nesting in the garments carried by «the hangers. of pockets shown in Fig. 1. In such type of hanger a bottom `3a is provided between the sides B and -I and the upper portions 6a and 'Ia are formed over the round bar la and suitably at tached to said bar as shown in Fig. 7. Also in the last mentioned form of device, the hook 2a may be suitably attached to bar la in accordance with well known practices, depending upon the particular material used for formingl the hanger. The form of hanger shown in Fig. 8 is prefer 10 ably adaptable to plastic and metal and includes the upper bar la, lower bar 3b, hook 2b, and the pockets 4 and 5. In this form of hanger the bar I prefer to form the hangers shown and de scribed herein of plastic material such as Lucite or Tenite for the reason that such material is susceptible to variations of color, may be readily formed or molded, the several parts may be eas ily secured together by cement or otherwise, and an ornamental hanger of maximum durability is 'provi-ded by the use of such material. However, it is apparent that metal may also be used, and in some cases, even wood, or combinations of l vmaterials, for producing durable hangers having artistic and pleasing effects. Ib and hook 2b are of flat, vertical cross-section, What I claim as my invention is: 1. A garment hanger comprising: a support 4 and 5 where the material is twisted as at I3, ing bar, pockets formed at the extremities of and so as to provide end portions I4 of horizontally extended below said bar in the direction of each ñat'tened lcross section, from which portions, the other, and a second bar cross connecting the pockets d and 5 are suspended, as in Fig. l. Lower bars 3b may or may not be used in this 20 extremities of the supporting bar, said bars form ing the upper and lower walls of said pockets. form of hanger, but if the lower bars are used, 2. A garment hanger comprising: a support they will assume horizontal planes as in Fig. l ing bar, pockets formed at the extremities of and and serve lto support the pockets 4 and 5. If extended below said bar in the direction of each bars 5b are not used, the pockets d and 5 will other, and a second bar cross connecting the ex be suspended from the upper bar Ib in a man except for portions closely adjacent. the pockets 15 tremities of the supporting bar, said bars form ing the upper and lower walls of said pockets and perforated side walls `connecting said bars for de Íining the lateral margins of the pockets. 3. A garment hanger comprising: a support ing bar, pockets formed at the extremities of and ner substantially similar to the provisions of 6 and 7. in the consideration of this invention, it may be my understood improvements thatare garment designed hangers to meetembodying the needs " of users beyond the range of well known forms of devices made of wood and are particularly adapted for the employement of modern plastic extended below said bar in the direction of each other, and a second bar cross connecting the ex material and metals of varied colors and designs ,_ tremities of the supporting bar, said bars form which, in> addition to añording opportunity for 35 ornamentation, are also more durable than ordi nary devices for the same purposes. . Moreover,. by reason of the provision of the pockets 4 and 5 as component features of my hangers, in one of which a scented material I5, and in the other of which an insect deterrent or preventive IS, such as moth balls, Icalles or pow der, is adapted to be held, the garment hangers afford users a number of beneñts assembled in one device, which has heretofore required dif riß affording access thereto, at will, a seco-nd bar I_cross connecting the extremities of said support 4ing bar and forming a bottom for the pockets, the supporting bar forming a top for the pockets. ferent treatments.
