The invention more speci?cally embodies a
wardrobe or cabinet of the indicated character
having a rectangular door frame composed of
corrugated cardboard, paperboard or other light
weight stock, with the walls and wall portions
integrally and hingedly connected together. The 16
end sections H and I2 form the end walls I!) and
20 of the wardrobe or cabinet and are constructed
of similar light-weight ?brous material and
which end walls. I 3 and 20 have inwardly directed
integi'al ?anged edges 2|, surrounded by 9. rec- 20

thereof for guidedly receiving a pair of closures
constructed from wooden strips and includes ver
tical sidestiles 23 and 23, and transverse end‘
strips 23 and 26 connected to the-side stiles at 25
the ends thereof. The vertical side stiles 23 and
24 have their outer side edges provided with a
longitudinally extending groove 21 of a width
for vertical sliding movement therein, and trans- . to snugly receive and hold the free edges of the
so verse end strips connecting the side stiles at the front wall portions I1 and I3, while the inner so

_With the foregoing and other objects in view,
35 reference is now made to the following speci?ca
tion and the accompanying drawings in which
is ‘illustrated a preferred embodiment of the in

In the drawings:
confronting side edges of the side stiles 23 and
24 are‘each provided with a‘ pair of longitudi
nally extending guide grooves 23 and 23, and in
which guide grooves the closures 30 and 3| are
mounted for. vertical sliding movement therein. 35
The transverse end strips 25 and 28 project out
wardly beyond the ends of the side stiles 23 and
24 and ?t within the end sections II and I2 ad

the lower rear rabbeted portion 3‘ of the cleat
32 and the upper forward rabbeted portion 30 of
the cleat 32 engages behind the end strip 25 when
the closure is in closed position to thereby seal‘
the juncture of the closure with the end strip.
The cleat 32 and the end strip 25 are provided
with any suitable type of cooperating spring latch
and keeper elements I‘! and 38 for automatically
securing the closure 30 in closed condition when
10 the cleat 32 abuts against the end strip 25.
The lateral side edges of the closure ‘3| are dis
posed in the longitudinally extending grooves 20
in the side stiles '23 and 24 for vertical sliding
movement to positions for closing and opening
15 the lower portion of the container and have rigid
Itransverse cleats 38 and 39 secured to the upper
and lower ends thereof. The cleats 38 and l!
have their opposite ends rabbeted as at ll to slid
ably engage within the grooves 28. the lower por
tion of the cleat is of the closure II is adapted
to engage behind the lower end strip 26 and abut
with a cross strip I! secured to the strip 26 when
, the closure is in closed position to thereby seal the
juncture of the closure with the end strip. The
closures ill and 3| overlap at their inner ends
when in closed condition with the cleats 33 and
38 in superposed relation and with the lower por
tion of the panel of the closure 30 disposed there
between to thereby effectively seal the juncture
thereof. The cleat I! is provided with a handle
knob 43 for manually raising the closure 3| to‘
open relation.
What is claimed is: _
1. A cabinet for the storage of clothing com
' prising ?anged end sections, a body section in
cluding vertically disposed integrally connected
rear and opposite side walls and oppositely dis
posed front wall portions joined to the side walls,
a rectangular door frame composed of vertical
side stiles and transverse end strips connected to
the side stiles at the ends thereof, said side stiles
Ihaving longitudinally extending grooves in the
outer side edges thereof for receiving the free
edges of the front wall portions, and said side
stiles each having a pair of longitudinally ex
tending guide grooves in the inner confronting
side edges thereof, and said transverse end strips
projecting beyond the ends of the side stiles and
interfitted with the end sections, and a pair of
closures slidably arranged in said guide grooves
respectively in overlapping relation, one of said
closures being slidable downwardly for gaining
access to the upper portion of the container and
the other closure being slidable upwardly for
gaining access to the lower portion of the con
tainer, and cooperating means on the upper por
tion of one of said closures and on the lower por
tion of the other for sealing the juncture of the
closures when in closed condition.
2. In a cabinet for the storage of clothing in
cluding ?anged end sections, a foldable body and
a separable front section comprising a rectangu
lar door frame composed of permanently con
nected rigid side stiles and end strips, the side
stiles having longitudinally extending grooves in
the confronting inner surfaces thereof, upper and
lower lightweight closure panels?tted- at the side
edges within said grooves, said upper closure
panel being slidable downward for gaining access
to the upper portion of the cabinet and ‘said lower
closure-being slidable upward for gaining access
to the lower portion of the cabinet, rigid trans
verse cleats secured respectively to the upper and
lower ends of said panels, said cleats having rab
beted portions to fit within the grooves and to
receive the end edges of the panels, the upper
cleat on one of said panels and the lower cleai
on the other of said panels overlapping and co
operating to seal the juncture of the panels wher
in closed condition, and said end strips and the
remaining cleats on said panels having cooperat
ing angularly disposed overlapping faces respec
tively for sealing the juncture of the panels witl
the ends of the door frame when in closed condi'
tion and said end strips of the door frame pro‘
jecting beyond the ends of the side stiles ant
inter?tted with the end sections.
