Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 2, 1912.
Application filed October 4, 1911. Serial No. 652,752.
To all whom it may concem:
Be it known that I, RAsMUs SIMONSEN, a subject of the King of Denmark, and residing at Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Trunks, of which the following is a specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to trunks, and the object thereof is to provide an improved de vice of this class which may be used as an ordinary trunk, a cabinet, a desk, a dresser or dressing table, and for various other purposes.
The invention comprises a trunk composed of bottom and top parts, the bottom part being provided wit-h a cover hinged at the back and on which the top part is mounted, said top being adapted to be raised and supported in an elevated position independent of the-cover, and being also adapted to be locked to said cover, at which time the top part and cover may be turned back so as to open the bottom part, the top part of the trunk being also provided with a cabinet or desk portion adapted to serve as a dresser and as a writing desk when said top part is in an elevated position and the bottom part of the trunk being also provided with separate compartments including a drawer.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawing forms a part, in which the separate parts of my improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved trunk; Fig. 2 a central transverse section on the line 22 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 a View similar to Fig. 1, but showing the top part of the trunk raised and showing a drawer with which the bottom part is provided, drawn out, and showing other details of the top construction and the means for holding said top in an elevated position; Fig. 4: a partial section on the line 4-4: of Fig. 2, but showing the parts in the position shown in Fig. 3; Fig. 5 a sectional detail show'flng a part of the construction which enables the top to be raised and held in an elevated position and lowered into its normal position, and Fig. 6 another detail view of a part of said construction.
In the practice of my invention I provide a trunk comprising a bottom part a and a top part b, said top part being adapted to be raised and held in an elevated position as shown in Fig. 3 and to be lowered and locked to the bottom part as hereinafter described and as shown in Fig. 1, and also to be turned backwardly with the cover of the bottom part. The top half a of the front of the bottom part is formed into a door which is hinged at a and in the bottom part a is a bottom chamber a at the ends of which are transverse cleats (1 adapted to support a drawer c.
The bottom part a is provided with a cover a which is hinged at the back as shown at a, and, in the form of construction shown, the drawer 0 is provided at its ends with handles 0 and when the cover a with the top is turned back as hereinafter described, the drawer 0 may be lifted out, as will be readily understood, or the cover with the top may be slightly lifted, the door 0, opened, and the drawer c drawn out.
The top 5 of the trunk is connected with the cover a of the bottom part of the trunk in the following manner: Hinged to the opposite end portions of the cover a. are frames (Z the hinges of which are shown at (Z and said frames extend up into the bottom of the top I) of the trunk as clearly shownin Fig. 4. The top b is provided inwardly of the sides thereof with horizontal and parallel spring strips 0 which are secured to the ends thereof. The frames (l are provided at the top and sides thereof with plates f, which are secured thereto and the upper ends of which are curved and provided with transverse slots f through which the strips 6 pass. At the back of the frames (Z are upright arms g which are composed of sheet metal and the upper ends of which are secured to the frames (1 at (7 and the lower ends of said arms are curved forwardly or inwardly as shown at g and passed downwardly through longitudinal slots in the cover a of the bottom part of the trunk and said arms are hinged to said cover at g, and these hinges are in transverse line with the hinges (Z of the frames (1. The lower ends 9 of the arms 9 are con nected by a strong spiral spring g as shown in Fig. 6, or two of these springs may be employed, one end of each being secured to the bottom of the cover a of the bottom of the trunk. The front sides of the frames d are also provided with braces 71 hinged thereto at ]L2 and to the cover a of the bottom part of the trunk at it and said braces are composed of two parts connected by an elbow joint h The top part Z) of the trunk is provided in the front thereof with a drawer 2' which may be drawn out when desired and said drawer is provided with a longitudinal partition i to which is hinged a cover i and when said drawer is partially drawn out the cover i may be turned backwardly as shown in Fig. 3, and the front thereof is provided with a mirror i and the partition 2' divides the drawer i into two compartments, as will be readily understood, and these parts when in the position shown in Fig. 3 serve as a dresser and when the cover 2' is down, said parts willserve as a writing desk.
The transverse dimensions of the drawer c in the bottom part of the trunk are less than the transverse dimensions of said bottom part, and placed rearwardly of said drawer is a longitudinal bar j which limits the backward movement of said drawer and above which is a longitudinal chamber or space 3' in which the ends 9 of the arms 9 and the springs operate.
The top part b of the trunk is provided at with a lock for securing it to the cover a of the bottom part, which cover also forms part of the top part of the trunk when the latter is turned backwardly, and the door a is provided at k with a lock, and passing through the cover a of the bottom part of the trunk is a bolt 70 which operates in connection with both of the locks 70 and 70 and these locks may be manipulated by keys inserted through key holes k and 70 When the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 2 and the top and bottom parts locked together, the proper key is inserted at 70 and the lock manipulated so as to release the top Z) at which time the said top will be raised by the spring or springs 9 into the position shown in Fig. 3, this operation being automatic. Then it is desired to close the top Z) down, the braces h are bent upwardly at h and the top 6 is depressed by hand until it is in the closed position as shown in Fig. 1 where it is locked as will be understood. When the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 2 and looked, a key may be inserted at 70 and the lock manipulated so as to release the top I) and the cover a, and said top and cover may be turned back as partially indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 2, so as to open the bottom part of the trunk or afford access to the drawer 0 without opening the door a and at this time said door a may be turned down as shown in Fig. 3 if desired. The ends of the trunk and the back thereof are also preferably provided with other fastening devices at of any preferred construction, and with the form of trunk shown, the bottom part a is of much greater vertical depth than the top part b, but my invention is not limited to th comparative dimensions of the separate parts, nor to other details of the construction as herein shown and described, and changes therein and modifications thereof may be made, within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
