The slide will be pulled outwardly to its fullest extent to thus permit the shorter mirror frame 23 to be free of the top casing as shown in Fig. 2. The mirror frame 23 will then be raised by the hand and the slide I4 again pushed inwardly that this shoe contacts on the inner and outer surfaces of the bottom 2 of the casing, as illus trated in Fig. 3. Thus, when these lug portions ‘I8 of the ears I5 are once fitted in place in the slots 1 of the casing, the slide can be moved into and out of the casing but cannot be removed therefrom. n ' This slide I4 is also provided with the outer until the mirror frame 23 rests against the for ward edge of the top or cover I0. The slide may extending Ytracks I9 on its opposite sides, andY . then be pushed still slightly inwardly and out wardly until the desired tilt of the mirror is ob tained. Of course, when the slide has been pulled out, it has carried the drawer 21 with it and if it is desired to remove something from the drawer, the Ydrawer 21' may then be pulled outwardly on its slide I4 as previously mentioned. To again close the vanity, the slide I4 is pulled out toV its fullest extent, the mirror frame 23 dropped until it rests on its slide and the drawer; 21 if it be open, pushed inwardly with relation to its slide |4, and then the Vslide I4 and the slidable on these tracks and the bottom of the casing I is the drawer soon to be mentioned. . . The forward end of the slide is bent over to form the hinge eyelets 20 and one part is'bent downwardly to form the slide pull 2|. Also, may be seen the small ears 22 near the l `forward end of the track which prevent the small drawer from tilting downwardly when the drawer is at the outer end of the slide. Referring now to Fig. 6, there may be seen the mirror frame 23 which is slightly greater in width‘but Yless in .length than the slide I4, and is provided with the up-turned lips 24 on its sides 25 drawer 21 pushed back into the casing |. w so that after the mirror 25 (see Fig. 2) is placed As heretofore mentioned, the lips 32 prevent in the frame,V these lips may be turned down to the drawer from being pulled away from theslide hold the mirror. f Theiorward end of the frame and the small ears 22- just above the track I9 will is provided with a row of hinge eyelets 26' that prevent the drawer 21 from tilting at its forward cooperate with the eyelets 20 ‘after which a pintle 30 end when the drawer is in its outermost position, f or rod 21 is passed through the eyelets in the usual manner so thatl the mirror frame can tilt From the foregoing it will be seen that I'h’a've provided a vanity wherein all parts except> the glass mirror may be readily> stamped from stock with relation to its slide, and rest o-n the slide Iand ledges 8 when not in use. ` material and the parts readily assembled and ' Referring now to Fig. 8, there may be seen the 35 secured so that after the`article is once assem small metal drawer 21 which has the inwardly bled, it will withstand considerable usage. turned ledges 28 or tracks that in turn ñt over YThe vanity may be made of relatively cheap L` metal and then nickelplatedor chromium plated the tracks I9 on the slide I4.
