(Cl. 20G-10)
This invention relates to chests and similar
receptacles and. is particularly directed to chest
structures including an assembly of trays.
The invention is particularly adapted to the
provision of trays in moth-proof chests, for eX
ample, chests constructed of or lined With cedar
wood or other materials giving off insecticidal or
insect-repellent odors or vapors.
A principal object of the invention is to pro
vide a chest having a plurality of trays so mounted
as to be positioned in substantially side-by-side
horizontal alignment in the upper part of a chest
when the lid thereof is closed and to be moved
to a substantially superposed spaced position
above and toward the back of the chest when the
lid thereof is raised.
A further object is to- provide a` chest having a
plurality of trays automatically movable into and
out of the chest by the raising and lowering of
20 the lid.
the tray pivots about the hinge line of hinges I4.
A second link member I8 is pivotally connected
at one end to tray I3 at the pivot point of link
member I'I and at the other end to tray I5 at
such point that tray I5 is likewise maintained in 15
a substantially horizontal position as the lid I2 is
raised and the tray pivots about the pivot points
of brackets I6.
It will thus be seen that upon closing the lid
the trays I3 and I5 Will be caused to assume a 20
substantially side-by-side horizontal position in
The invention comp-rises a chest or similar ar
ticle having a body and a lid hinged thereto and
a plurality of tray members carried at least in
said part by the lid and connecting means caus
ing said trays to be positioned in substantially
side-by-side horizontal alignment when the lid
is in closed position and to be moved to substan
tially superposed spaced position adjacent said
lid upon raising the lid.
IB which are' attached to the lid at such point
that the rear of the second tray is at least slightly
spaced from the front of the first tray when the
lid is in horizontal position with the trays sus
pendedl parallel to the lid and in the same hori- 5
zontal plane as shown particularly in Fig. 2.
A link member I‘I is. pivotally connected at one
end to the body Il and at the other end to tray
I3 at such point that it maintains the tray I3 in
a horizontal position as the lid I2 is raised and 10

The invention will be more fully described for
the purpose of illustration with reference to the
accompanying drawings which show a repre
sentative embodiment of the invention.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of a chest embody
ing the invention with the lid in raised position;
Fig. 2 is an end View in partial section of the
chest shown in Fig. l, with the lid in closed
position, the raised position of the chest being
40 indicated in dotted lines.;
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary front View in partial
section of the chest with the lid in raised position;
Fig. íl is a fragmentary View of a detail of the
invention; and Fig. 5 shows a modified form of
the invention.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. l to 4 of the
drawings a chest body I I is provided with a lid I2
hinged to the body along the rear top edge there
of. A tray I3, substantially less in width than
the width of the chest from front to rear, is
pivotally attached to the lid at the rear thereof
by hinges Ill. A second tray I5, not greater in
width than the difference between the width of
the first tray and the Width of the chest from
55 front to rear, is pivotally mounted on brackets
the upper portion of the chest adjacent the lid and
that upon raising the lid the trays will be main
tained in a horizontal position adjacent the lid,
being moved to a spaced superposed position 25
above and to the rear of the chest body when the
lid is in approximately vertical position.
When the overall depth of the trays is substan
tially the same as the internal depth of the lid,
as shown in the drawings, the trays with their 30
contained articles are positioned wholly within
the lid when the lid is in closed position. It is
possible, however, to provide trays of either
greater or less depth than the depth of the lid.
When, the lid is in raised position, the trays 35
are held in such a position that their contents are
easily accessible and at the same time the inte
rior of the chest body is readily accessible.
In the embodiment shown in Fig. 5 the inven
tion is applied to a chest having a flat lid. In
this figure the open- position of the lid and trays
is shown in full lines and the closed position is
indicated by dotted lines. The chest body 2| is
provided with a flat lid 22 hinged to the body
along the rear top edge. Tray 23 is pivotally 5
attached to the lid at I4 and tray 25 is pivotally
attached to the lid at 26.
Link member 21 is pivotally connected to the
body 2l at one end and to tray 23 at the other, 50
while link member 25 is connected to tray 23 at
one end at the point of connection of link 21 and
at the other end is connected to» tray 24. Link
members 29 and Sil assist in supporting the trays
and in steadying the assembly.

I claim:
1. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally
connected thereto, a plurality of trays pivotally
connected directly to the lid along parallel pivotal
lines spaced from each other and substantially
parallel to the pivotal axis of the lid and link
members connecting the trays‘to the body and
maintaining the trays adjacent said lid and in
substantially level horizontal position in all posi~
10 tions of the lid.
2. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally
connected thereto, a tray pivctally connected
directly to the rearward portion of the lid and a
link member connecting the tray to the body
15 and maintaining the tray in substantially level
horizontal position in all positions of the lid, and
a second tray pivotally connected directly to the
lid forward of said first tray and a link member
jacent said lid and in substantially level hori
zontal position in all positions of the lid.
4. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally
connected thereto, a tray having a Width sub
stantially less than the width of the interior of
the chest from front to rear pivotally connected
directly to the rearward portion of the lid and
a link member connecting said tray to the body
and maintaining the tray in substantially level
horizontal position in all positions of the lid, 10
and a second tray having a width not greater
than the difference between the Width of said
ñrst tray and the Width of the interior of the
chest from front to rear pivotally connected di
rectly to the lid forward of said ñrst tray and a
link member connecting said second tray to said
ñrst tray and maintaining said second tray in
substantially level horizontal position in all posi»
connecting said second tray to said ñrst tray and
20 maintaining said second tray in substantially
level horizontal position in all positions of the
tions of the lid.
5. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivotally
connected to said body, a plurality of trays piv
lid.
3. A chest comprising a body, a lid pivot-ally
connected thereto, a plurality of trays having a
25 total width not exceeding the Width of the in
terior of the chest from front to rear, each of
pivotal lines spaced from each other and sub
stantially parallel to the pivotal axis of the lid
and link members connecting said trays to the
said trays being pivotally connected to the lid
along parallel pivotal lines spaced from each
other and substantially parallel to the pivotal
axis of the lid and link members connecting said
trays to the body and maintaining the trays ad
otally connected directly to said lid along parallel
body and maintaining said trays in substantially
level horizontal position, whereby, upon raising
the lid about its pivot line', the trays will be
moved to substantially superposed spaced posi
tions above and to the rear of said body.
