2 Claims.
This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in trunks.
The invention has for an object the construc
tion of a trunk in which the top and bottom walls
i)
thereof are constructed in a novel fashion.
Prior to this invention it has been customary
to construct the top and bottom walls of trunks
of ?ber boards and similar materials, and to ar
range angle metallic strips or ?ber binding along
10 the edges thereof to connect these wall portions
with the said wall portions of the trunk. This
construction has proven highly unsatisfactory in
that the top and bottom walls of a trunk are the
weakest portions thereof and are usually sub
15 jected to a great deal of abuse.
This invention has for an object the construc
tion of the top and bottom walls of a trunk of
either ?bre or sheet metal, ?rst glued on a board
having their edges bent inwards and riveted, or
20 in any other manner amalgamated with the side
walls of the trunk. This construction eliminates
the use of the angle irons or ?bre binding used
to join the top and bottom walls of the trunk
with the side walls.
.
A further object of the invention is a novel con
25
struction of the cover of the trunk characterized
by the provision of a rectangular frame of wood
upon which the top element is attached and upon
the lower edge of which a metallic ?ange mem
30 ber is attached.
Furthermore, the invention contemplates an

illustrating a modi?ed form of the invention.
Fig. 5. is a fragmentary enlarged view of a
portion of Fig. 4.
The trunk, according to this invention, com
prises a rectangular frame it) upon the top edge
of which a ?at element l l is attached. This ?at
element II has its edges Ha turned downwards
and engaging over the top edges of the frame.
Rivets I2 are used in attaching the edges of the 10
flat element and the frame together. At the cor
ners there are reinforcement elements 13 secured
in position by rivets I4.
A ?ange member I5 is attached by rivets it
upon the bottom edge of the rectangular frame 15
10. More particularly, the ?ange member is in
the form of a frame engaged over the bottom edge
of the frame I0. Preferably, the frame l0 should
be constructed of wood or similar material.
A trunk body I1 is connected along one side 20
thereof by hinges to one side of the ?ange mem
ber l5.
This trunk body preferably should be
made of ?ber board. It is reinforced at the cor
ners by angle strips l9 secured in position with
rivets 20. Several lock elements 2|, 22, etc., are
associated upon adjacent parts of the trunk body
and the flange member by which the trunk may
be latched. A handle 23 is mounted on the front
side of the trunk body. The trunk body I‘! con
sists of a side wall structure I‘!a and a bottom
wall structure llb. This bottom wall structure
is metallic and has its edges ll’ bent upwards and
engaging over the bottom edges of the side wall
arrangement wherein the rectangular frame is
constructed of sections adapted to be expanded
vertically to increase the capacity of the trunk
structure ll“. Rivets 24 are used to connect the
when desired.
edges of the bottom wall with the side wall.

In Figs. 4 and 5 a modified form of the inven
tion is disclosed in which the trunk is formed
with a frame l0’ made of several sections Illa and
10'’. These sections are each of substantially L
shape and are inter-engaged with each other, as
clearly shown in Fig. 5. Screws 25 are mounted
upon one of the sections and engage through ver
tical slots 26 on the other of the sections. Nuts
21 are mounted upon the screws 25 and are

_
A further object of the invention is the method
of attaching top and bottom walls to side walls.
Another object of the invention is the con
struction of an article as described which is sim
40 ple and durable and which may be manufactured
and sold at a reasonable cost.
For further comprehension of the invention,
and of the objects and advantages thereof, refer
ence will be had to the following description
45 and accompanying drawing, and to the appended
claims in which the various novel features of
the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a mate

frame, namely, the section lob, while the flange
