The particular structure illustrated in the
“5 personal use especially such as are adapted to be
drawing is a compact having a base or bottom
carried on the person in a pocket or a bag.
It is a purpose of the present invention to pro
vide in such a receptacle a frame or ‘locket-like
device in which may be displayed a picture or
10 insignia or the like. In one form the invention
may take it is possible to display two pictures, in
signia or the like, one of which is visible from
the outside when the receptacle is closed and the
other is visible from the inside when the recep
tacle is open. The frame or locket may be hinged
so as to be adjustable or movable in the recep
tacle member to which it is attached. Means
may be provided for removing and replacing the
conte-nts of the locket so that different pictures
2O or insignia may be substituted from Atime to time
or when desirable. Preferably meansv are pro
vided to hold the locket in position for display.
The locket may be associated with a frame or
collar into which it ñts more or less neatly and
25 which may assist in holding in position the por
l5 of standard construction. Hinged to this is
the other member of the receptacle which will
hereinafter be referred to as the cover li. The
cover li may carry a mirror l2 which may be
held in place by a lining member i3 which has lo
an appropriate aperture for the mirror i2. The
cover i! has appropriately located an opening ld
which may be provided with an ornamental or
reinforcing border l5. In the lining i3 is an
opening IB registering with the opening hi in the lo
cover H. Surrounding the opening i5 is a raised
collar il.
`
The collar il is provided with a hinge mech
anism I8 carrying a frame E9 which may be
substantially the same size as the holes Ul and ._
I5. The frame i9 is preferably so carried that
one surface will, in closed position, be at sub
stantially the level of the border i5. When the
frame IG is in closed position indicated in full
lines throughout the drawing it lies within the Llv Ch

mechanism indicated as overturned lugs 2E to
In such a receptacle it may be `convenient to
put the frame or locket-like device into one mem
30 ber of the receptacle so as to be accessible and
visible from the outside. It is immaterial which
member of the receptacle is so used but for pur
poses of illustration and description the frame
is illustrated as attached to the cover of the
35 receptacle. The term cover, however, is not em
ployed in a limiting sense. It is to be under
stood that as here used the term cover is merely
used as a convenient means for describing one
member of a receptacle and may signify any
40 member of a receptacle to which the frame or
locket is applied.
In the accompanying drawing is illustrated one
specific embodiment of the invention. Figure 1
is a top plan view of a closed receptacle provided
45 with the new picture display frame. Fig. 2 is a
plan view similar to Fig. 1 with the cover opened.
Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section on the line
3_3 of Fig. 2 dotted lines being employed to in
dicate a position to which the frame may be
50 moved. Fig. 4 is a fragmentary vertical section
on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a fragmen
tary vertical section on the line 5--5 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary transverse horizontal
section on the line 6-6 of Fig. 2, the frame or
55 locket being shown empty. Fig. 7 is a perspec
At its side opposite` the hinge i8 the
engage upset portions 2l in the collar l'l to hold
the frame in position in the collar. The frame 30
I9 has apertured face members 22 and 23 through
which may be display-ed pictures, insignia or the
like 24 and 25 when the frame is filled. Under
lying the face members 22 and 23 may be sheets
of suitable transparent material 26 and 2l such
as glass, cell‘ulcid, cellotex, etc., against which
may lie pictures, insignia or the like 24 and 25.
A filling block 23 may be inserted between these
so as to hold the material to be displayed against
the transparent plates 2S, 21 or against the face
members 22 and 23 if the transparent plates are
omitted. Preferably the top, bottom and one
side of the frame I9 will be integral with the
face members 22 and 23, being stamped or welded
or soldered or otherwise attached thereto. This
leaves one side of the frame open and when the
frame is turned on its hinge 18 to the position
indicated in dotted lines in Figs. 3 and 4 the con
tents of the frame I9 may be supplied, removed
50
or changed.
In order to hold the contents in the frame i9
there may be provided a U-shaped member 29 to
iill the open side of the frame I9. The arms 30
and 3l of the U-shaped member 2S when in posi
tion lie closely against the top and bottom mem
55
2
bers of the frame I9.

The arms 39 and 3! may
be provided with lugs 32 to engage correspond
ing openings 33 in the top and bottom members
of the frame I9 so as to open the locket or hold
the member 29 in position. It will be noted that
the member 29 will lie more or less snugly against
one side of the collar I1 when the frame I9 is
in the position indicated in full lines in the
drawing. Thus the member 29 will tend to be
10 held in position by the collar Il.
When desired the face member 22 may have
an outwardly extending lip 34 to rest against
the edge of the collar I'I and form a neat cover
for th'e closure. rI‘he member 29 when in posi
15 tion may lie under and closely engage the edges
of the face members 22 and 23. When the frame
member I9 is in the position indicated in dotted
lines any suitable mechanism such as an awl,
needle or the like may be inserted through the
20 hole 33 to engage the lugs 32 or the arms 3D or
3| and force the member 29 outward. When it
has been forced beyond the edge of the face
plate 23 the member 29 itself may be engaged
by the finger or by any suitable tool and thus
25 withdrawn from the frame member I9 to allow
insertion, rearrangement or substitution of the
contents of the frame member I9.
While pictures 24 and 25 have been illustrated
as suitable display contents for the frame I9
any desired material may be thus displayed and
either or both sides may be left blank without
any display material or may contain material
which augments, contrasts with or harmonizes
with the surface ornamentation of the receptacle
or of the lining.
The invention may be embodied in other forms
which may vary in detail, construction, arrange
ment and location from the specific embodiment
illustrated.
