a case or miniature cabinet for use upon a desk for
holding writing materials, ink ‘bottles, pens,
pencils, and other material.
The invention has for'its object, among others,
to provide a device of this character. which may
be cheaply and economically constructed; will
provide a convenient holder for writing instru~
‘Jill mentalities, and for holding letters, papers, and
the like.
The invention together with its objects. and
advantages will be best understood from a study
of the following description taken in connection
»with the ‘accompanying drawings wherein:-—
Figure 1 is a front elevational view of: the de
vicein open condition,
Figure 2’ is a fragmentary detail sectional view
illustrating certainv ‘features of construction here
inafter more fully referred to, .
- ‘ Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view through the
device at about the center of the device with the
device in complete open’ condition,
Figure lliis a view-similar to Figure 3 but taken
nearer to one end of the device,
Figure 5 vis a fragmentary top plan view showing
a pocket for the reception of the post of a stamp
Figure 6 is an end elevational view of the post
forming part of the stamp rack, and
Figure '7 is a perspective view of a slide member‘
hereinafter more fully referred to.
Referring to the drawings by reference nu
merals it will be seen that in the preferred em
35 bodiment thereof the case or compact comprises
a bottom wall 5, end walls 6, top wall 1, front
Wall 8, and rear wall 9.
Walls 8 and 9 are hinged to the bottom wall
5 as at Hl—lii for vertical swinging movement to
40 opened and closed position.
The walls 8 and 9 are provided with suitable
fastening elements H complemental to spring
keeper elements l2 provided therefor on the top
wall 1 at the front and rear edges of said wall.
Adjacent opposite ends thereof the case or com
pact is provided with vertical partitions l3 and
horizontal partitions M forming with the end
walls 6 and top wall 1 pidgeon holes I5 in which
are removably positioned shelves It.
To support the shelves It the partitions l3 and
end walls 6 are provided with grooves I‘! that re
ceive the edges of the shelves I6 in a manner to
permit the shelves to be readily removed when it
is desired to thoroughly clean the pigeon holes
55 l5.
. Between the pigeon holes I5 there is arranged
a?le~drawer I‘! and the latter at opposite side
edges thereof is provided with guide ribs l8 that
are slidably accommodated on guide rails l9
suitably provided on. the partitions l3 in slightly 6
spaced relation to the top wall ‘I.
. Asshown in Figure 3 the drawer I1 is provided
with a plurality of partitions 20 providing ?le
spaces 2|. . For certain of the ?le spaces 2‘l there
is provided an inclined false bottom 22, bottom 22
serving to facilitate the placing of envelopes and
the like in the compartment. At the front end
thereof the drawer I7 is provided with a knob 23.
Provided within the bottom of the case or com
pact, at each end thereof, are a pair of spaced , 15
guide rails 24--25 between which is secured a
cross cleat 26 acting as a‘guide for a rod 27. On
one. end of the rod 2‘! isa crosshead 2'8 that has
reduced‘end portions 29 working in guide slots 30
provided therefor inthe rails 24, 25. The cross ; 20
cleat 26 is provided with an aperture to accom
modate the rod 21 and crosshead 28 is normally
urged toward the front side of the ‘case through
the medium of a coil spring 3!.
At the front side thereof the case accommo- “
dates between the rails of the respective pairs of "
rails ‘24, 25 ink wells 32, one’ of which may be
used to contain ink of one color and the other of
which may be used for containing ink of another
color. The wells 32 are normally urged outwardly 30
to a tilted or inclined position shown in Figures 3
and 4 through the medium of the spring-pressed
crossheads 28, and to accommodate the wells 32
in the inclined position mentioned, and to serve
to maintain the wells in such a position the front
side or closure member 8 for the case is provided
at the corners thereof adjacent the hinged edge
of the member 8 with trays 33 that are suitably
recessed as at 34 to accommodate the wells. 32
in a manner best shown in Figure 4.
A blotter or other suitable absorbing pad 35
covers the inner face of the closure member 8.
Also carried by the closure member 8 is a com
bination rack 36.
Rack 36 comprises a pair of opposed laterally
spaced rack bars 31 which are suitably notched as
at 38 to accommodate pencils, pens, and the like,
and at their inner ends the rack bars 31 are pro
vided with hook-like formations 39 which serve to
receive the pencils or pens on the rack 31 when
the member 8 is swung upwardly to a closing
Also, pivotally supported between the forward
ends of the bars 31 as at Ml is a tray 4| for
receiving paper clips, rubber bands, etc.
As will be clear from a study of Figure 3 when
the member 8 is swung vertically upwardly to a
closed position the tray 4| will be accommodated
within the case or compact forwardly of the
drawer I‘! while the wells, 32 against the action
of the spring-pressed crosshead 28, will be forced
inwardly of the case or compact between the
rails 24, 25 of the respective pairs of rails.
The closure member 8, as previously explained,
10 is releasably secured in closed position through
the medium of the complemental latch members
especially desirable for use in conjunction with
flat top desks, serving as it does as a receptacle
for pens, pencils, ink, as well as a ?le for letters,
cards, etc.
It is thought that a clear understanding of the
construction, utility and advantages of an inven
tion of this character will be had without a more
detailed description.
Having thus described the invention what is
claimed as new is:
ll, l2.
It will also be appreciated that with the mem
ber 9 in the position shown in Figure 3 access to
15 the case or compact at the rear side thereof may
be had.
From the above it will be seen that I have pro
vided a desk case or compact which will be found
Also completing the assembly is a stamp rack
indicated generally by the reference 4|‘.
The rack 4| comprises a standard or post 42 to
20 which are secured, and from which extend later
ally bars or arms 43 each of which is provided
with a series of slots or notches 44 for ‘accom
modating the handle portions 45 of rubber ‘stamps
'46 as suggested in Figure 1.
At one end thereof the post 42 of the stamp
rack is reduced and squared as at 41 to ?t snugly
within a complementa'rily shaped opening 48
provided therefor in the top wall 1 of the case.
Also secured to the top wall 1 of the case is a
socket plate 49 that registers with the opening
48 and accommodates the lower end portion of
the post 42 as clearly shown in Figure 3.
When not in use the rack 4| is accommodated
within the case beneath the drawer l1 and com
partment I5 and in this connection it will be
seen that the post 42 of the rack, when the latter
is placed within the case, is accommodated be
tween a pair of guide bars or cleats 41 suitably
secured to the bottom wall 5 of the case and
extending from the front to the rear side of the
case in slightly spaced relation and at opposite
sides of the transverse center ‘of the ‘bottom
wall 5.
Also, to prevent marring the polished surface
