TRAY OR THE LIKE.

ADOLF MONTAN, OF WEST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO EASTERN TOOL 86 MFG COMPANY, OF BLOOIVIFIELD, NEW JERSEY.

TRAY OR, THE LIKE.

Application filed February 11, 1919.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ADoLF MoNTAN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of West Orange, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Trays or the like, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved receptacle of the tray or basket type, which is adapted to be made of metal and which is ordinarily used as a soap tray or the like, these being usually enameled, preferably in White enamel. In the soap trays as heretofore made, and on which white enamel is used, they are usually formed of wire or strips and then are dipped or otherwise coated with enamel. Projections, due sometimes to solder, but usually due to projecting ends of wire or strips used in the manufacture thereof, are subject to chipping at their projecting points and it is also diflicult to flow the enamel on the device. it is well nigh impossible to so flow the enamel as to provide a suitable thickness on these projecting parts, and as a consequence they appear bluish under the enamel, due to their proximity to the surface, soon chip, and rusting sets in which soon spoils the appearance of the article.

In order to overcome this deficiency I have devised a soap dish and method of making it, which gives a substantially smooth exterior without projecting parts or points such as occur in the cut ends of wires or strips or at the edges of the article, and by welding the parts together at suitable points a substantially stiff structure is provided which is uniformly white in appearance, as the white enamel can be smoothly distributed on it and any projecting points are not present and there is no chipping or premature wearing of the enamel.

The device is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a top view of an article made according to my invention, and Fig. 2 is a front view thereof. Fig. 3 is an enlarged section, showing how one of the strips of the basket is secured to the rim, and Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the parts shown in Fig. 3, separated to show their construction and manner of assembly.

The device made according to my invention can be of different forms and sizes and can be used for difierent purposes, but is Specification of Letters Patent.

In fact,

Patented May 2'7, 1919.

Serial No. 276,284.

particularly designed for soap dishes and the like or other articles where the device is subjected to alternate drying and wetting and where a separated or perforated structure is required to permit proper draining.

In the'form shown, the part that is described in this specification as the bottom part. is formed by strips placed at right angles to each other, although this particular disposition is not essential, as they can be placed in other positions relative to each other, and in order to make a substantially stiff structure this bottom portion is made of strips 10 that are slightly recessed or bent where they cross, as at 11. This bottom portion, in order to give it depth, can have the ends of the strips bent upward, as at 12. These bent ends are designated by numeral 13 and are the portions that provide the part that is attached to the rim 1 1. The rim 1% is provided with spaced recesses 15 on its lower face, these recessed portions being adapted to receive the ends 13.

The pressure exerted by a suitable tool or machine to make the recesses 15 causes the metal to become displaced, when the recess is made, to form a slight projecting part 16, which does not detract from the appearance of the construction, but it adds to its strength, since the surface which engages the part 13 is thus slightly enlarged. It will thus be readily seen that when the bottom portion is placed so that the ends 13 are seated in the recess 15 of the rim, the extremities 17 of these ends 13 are covered. The bottom portion and the rim are then securely fastened together, preferably by electric welding, so that no projecting strip or wire ends are presented where they would be subjected to wear, and presenting no points where the enamel would not flow freely on the device to give it an even coating of enamel.

It will be evident that different forms than that illustrated can be made, and that the cross sectional shapes of the difierent strands and of the rim that go to make up the device can be varied without departing from the scope of the invention as presented in the claims.

I claim:

1. A tray comprising a bottom portion, a rim having recesses on its under face, each recess having one end and one side open,

and projections on the bottom adapted to be placed in the open side of the recesses of the rim and to be secured thereln.

2. A tray comprising a bottom formed of crossed and separated strips, said strips having horizontal projecting ends, and a rim with open sided recesses spaced apart and disposed so as to receive said ends laterally.

3. A tray comprising a bottom formed of interlaced strips having projecting ends which are bent upward and with their extremities projecting outward, and a rim. with recesses on its bottom face to receive the extremities and thus form a flat surface for the bottom of the rim of the tray thus formed.

7 4:. A tray comprising spaced interlaced strips with projecting ends turned upward and then outward, and a rim having on its bottom face a series of recesses as deep as the strip ends are thick and spaced to receive said outwardly extending ends.

5. A tray comprising spaced interlaced strips with projecting ends turned upward and then outward, and a rim having on its bottom face a series of recesses as deep as ADOLF MONTAN.

Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, addressing the Commissioner of 'Patents,
