COSMETIC CASE
Robert H. Burdge, Kansas City, Mo.
Application March 29, 1937, Serial No. 133,694
10 Claims. (01. 132-79) ’
My invention relates to a case equipped with
trays and one object is to provide a case of this
character having a suitable number'of trays and
means for simultaneously adjusting them out
wardly to their respective positions where their
contents will be readily accessible when the lid
of the case, or a certain one of the trays, is
opened, or automatically moved back into the
case when the lid, or the certain tray, is closed.
10 A further object is to provide the case with a
mirror connected in such manner to one of the
trays that when the latter is moved outwardly it
will automatically place the former in‘a con
venient position for use.
15 For the purpose of illustration I have shown
the case equipped with four movable trays, a mir
ror, and means for actuating said trays and mir- '
shown by Fig. 1.

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the case with the
end to a foldable member 48 secured to a cover

rear side of the tray I2.
and the mirror tilted to a position where it may
be conveniently used.
25
actuating mechanism my invention contemplates
the use of other trays and means for opening
and closing them simultaneously with the open
ing and closing of said trays Ill and I2, as will
hereinafter ‘appear.
Each'connecting-rod I8 is equipped near its
rear end with a hinge 32, or its equivalent, one
leaf of which is connected by a pivot 34 to the re
spective connecting-rod. The other leaf of each
spring 32 has one end of a link 38 pivoted thereto,
the opposite end being pivoted to a hinge 38.
The hinges 38 are connected to a pair of trays
40 having covers 4| and mounted on hinges 42
secured to the ends of the case 2, so that said
trays 48 may be swung into the respective com 15
partments'26, or swung outward to the positions
‘
Fig. 2 is an enlarged section on line 2-2 of
of Fig. l.
_
Figs. 3 and 4 are fragmentary sectional views
showing certain parts of the invention.
‘Fig. 5 is a detail of a part of the mechanism
'30 for actuating the movable trays.
Referring in detail to the different parts, 2
designates the main or body portion of the case
which has a lid 4 connected thereto by hinges
6. The forward lower portion of the case 2 is
3 provided with a compartment 8 in which a tray
or drawer I0 is slidably mounted. The upper
portion of the case has a tray I2 connected by
hinges I4 to a reinforcement I6 secured to the
inner portion of the lid 4.
Suitable mechanism is provided for moving
the trays Ill and I2 outwardly when the lid 4
is raised (Figs. 1 and 2) and inwardly when the
lid 4 is closed. For example, I have shown, in
the present instance, such mechanism in the
45 form of a pair of connecting-rods I8 and a pair
of levers 20. The connecting-rods I8 are pivoted
at their ends to the tray I0 and the levers 20,
respectively. The levers 20 are mounted inter
mediate their ends upon pivots 22 secured to a
50 pair of partitions 24 spaced to provide compart
ments 28 at the ends of the case 2. The levers
20 extend upwardly at an angle through respec
tive slots 28 in the top 30 of the case 2 and are
pivoted at their upper ends to the tray I2.
In addition to the trays Ill and I2 and their
55
' In addition to the trays and compartments
above described, the case 2 may be equipped with
other suitable trays and compartments. In the
present instance I have shown a compartment 54
in the upper forward portion of the case and a re
movable tray 56 in the rear of said compartment
54.
‘
30
In practice when the lid 4 is opened it lifts
the tray I2 from the dotted line to the full line
position, Fig. 2, thereby causing the levers 28
to swing on their pivots 22 and advance the con
necting-rods I8 which in turn push the drawer
I0 outwardly. As the connecting-rods I8 ad
vance they actuate the links 36 which in turn
swing the trays 48 outwardly to the position
shown by Fig. 1.
Conversely, when the lid 4 is'closed it carries
the tray I2 downwardly to the top 38 of the
case 2. As the tray i2 descends it swings the
levers 20 to the dotted line position, Fig. 2, so that
they in turn will move the trays Ii] and 4!] in
wardly through the intermediary of the connect-v 45
ing-rods I8 and the links 36. It is obvious that
the lid 4 may be opened or closed and the trays
I2 and 40 may be swung outwardly or inwardly
by grasping the knob of the drawer II] and. open
ing or closing the same.
50
When the lid 4 is opened and the tray I2 is
raised to the position shown by Fig. 2, the mirror
44 is tilted at a convenient angle for use as
shown.
When the cover 50 of the tray I2 is
raised by hand to the position shown by Fig. 4 55
2
2,119,313
to permit access to the contents of the tray I2,
the member 48 folds to the position shown and
carries the mirror 44 backward against the inner
side of the lid 4, in which position the weight
of the mirror will hold the cover 50 in open po
sition and thus leave both hands free to re
move or place articles in the tray I 2.
If the trays 40 are swung to open position
while the case 2 is resting upon a table or other
10 support, the respective covers 4| may be lowered
to the surface of such support and thus relieve
the hinges 42 of a portion of the weight of said
trays and their contents.
Should a more modest type of case be desired
15 the trays 49 and the links 36 may be dispensed
with, or the tray I2, the levers 20 and the mirror
44 can be left off. In the latter instance guides
42', or their equivalents, are provided to sup-.
port the rear ends of levers 20 so that they will
actuate the links 36 without binding.
From the foregoing description it will be under
stood that i have provided an attractive, compact
and serviceable case whereby all of the trays ex
cepting tray 56 may be simultaneously positioned
by the opening of the lid 4, where their contents
are readily accessible and whereby the mirror 44
is positioned at a convenient angle for use.

Furthermore, it is to be understood that the case
herein shown and described and the operations
set forth are subject to such modi?cations as
properly fall within the spirit and scope of the
invention ‘as claimed.
