E. c. AUSTIN TOILET CASE 'Filed Sept. 15, 1927 W- ATTORNEY.

Patented Aug. 7, 1928?.



Applicationfiled September 13, 1927. Serial No. 219,303.

This invention relatesto toilet cases and is 1nore particularly concerned with a portable case which maybe used in the home as a wall fixture or maybe carried as a traveling accessory. e

An object of the invention is'to provide a compac-tcase having structural provision for holding the necessary articles of toilet in a convenient and accessible manner. 1

A further object of the invent-ion isto provide a case ofthis character which includes protective pockets for certain toilet articles of a personal nature.

Another and important object of the invention is to provide in a toilet case a novel holding means for tube containers ofpaste andthe like which dispenses with'the-use of their screw caps and forms a permanent protective and dispensing mount .for'the tube. V Theseand other objects and features will be more fully apparent from the following detailed description of a preferable embodi extending tubular ment of the invention when readin conjunction with the accompanying drawings forming part thereof and in which,

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a case con structed in accordance with the invention showing the toilet accessories appropriately mounted therein, I 1 Figure 2 is an endelevation of the case shownin Fig.1, Figure 3 is an enlarged detail of a tube holding head mounted in the case,

Figure 1 is an end elevation of the head detached, p 7 e Figure 5 is a top plan view of the same,

Figure 6'is a side elevation of a head, partly :in section showing a: ported slide thereover.

Referring to the 'drawings'by numerals, 1 is an upper and 2 a lower ledge connected at their rear by a wall 3 forming the back of the case The upper ledge 1, on its upper ace is formed with a plurality of laterally pockets 4:, cut away at one end, as at 5, Fig. 1, for access and designed to receive articles of toiletrequiringcoverageprotection such as shaving and tooth rushes, comb, etc. The lower ledge 2 is formed with a central containerseat 6 fronted by a retaining wall 7 at thefront edge of the ledge 2,.from which a-leaf spring 8 npstands and acts as a follower spring to press a container such as the powder can 9,

a safety razor and an alum tubes as containers for toothpaste,

heads 21 of -which are against the face of the back wall3-which is preferably faced at this point with suitable backing 10. I

At opposite sides of the container seat,

tubular holders or pockets l1 and 12 upstand so from the ledge 2. Preferably they are posi tioned sufliciently far from each end to ermit the collapsible tubes hereinafter described to depend from the upperledge 1. The tubular holders 11 and 12 may be'used 05 for example, to hold the handle portion of pencil, or other accessory. The ledge 2 may be deep enough to' permit other accessories to be seated thereon with the container 9, as for example, the packet of safety razor blades 13 which are engaged by the follower spring 8,

as seen in Figs. 1 and 2.

The almost universal use of collapsible shaving 7b 7 etc., makes it necessary to provide means for carrying these articles on the toilet'case. I have provided novel and advantageous means to this end as follows:

The under face of the upper ledge 1 from its front edge inwardly isformed at the ends of the ledge with dove-tailed slots 14 terminating in upwardly inclined bases 15, Fig. 3, with inwardly inclined side walls. These slots receive and hold collapsibletube heads in the form of blocks 16 having downwardly converging side walls corresponding to the taper of the dove-tailed ledge slots and having noses'l? at their inner ends with upward bevels 18 to engage inclines 15 and upwardly tapering side walls. These blocks are formed with vertical discharge openings 19 with depending alined nipples, the enlarged internally threaded to receive the upper threaded ends of opened collapsible tubes 22. The caps on the ends of the tubes are unscrewed and the threaded tube ends are screwed up in the nipples 21., the tubes remaining permanently in. place until their contents have been discharged 109 through the openings 19 inthe heads lfi. he contents of the tubes suspended from the blocks 16 are maintained against deterioration by reason of the wedging of the top faces of the block against the underside of 10 the upper ledge throughth'e action of the coacting inclines 15, 18. Strips of compressible sheet cork 23 appropriately sealed to the under face of the ledge lat the top of the slots thereinassists in maintaining an air 210 and toilet creams,

tight fit around the discharge openings to. eonservethe freshness of the tube contents.

' Provision is made for a plurality of tubes by having dove-tailed slots let extending inwardly from the sideedges of ledge 1 (see,

Fig. 2) with similar head blocks, the tubes 22 Fig. 2, supported thereby, being in sta gered relation to the adjacent tubes depeno- 3 ing from the head the head blocks maybe effected through a ported slide 24: shown in Fig. 6, as resting on the top and embracing the sides of the head blocks 16, these sliding covershaving inner flanges 25 downturned over the end of the noses 18 of the blocks and finger lips 26 at-their outer ends. Ajport or opening 27 in the slide and an alinedopening in itslcork underlining 28 will aline with the discharge port; 19 of the block, when the headis moved outwardly in its slot and the slide 2% is pushed inwardly as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 6; A cross bar 29 entending between'the' sides of theslide ,wlll engage the dependingnipple 20 of the block and position the port 27 inllne with the discharge opening 19 of the block The headblock thus equipped will seat. inthe dove-tailed groove similarly to the first describedblock lti and as indicated in Fig. 3.

The bloclrin either case, 1s pulled out of its. slot when it is; desired to discharge some of the contentsof the supported tube, the latter being progressively collapsed to eject its contents through a-discharge opening 19, or through the alined openings 19 and 27 in theform shown in Fig. 6. i The described; toiletcase therefore, provides "for the mounting of all: practical toilet necessities in a compact, convenientfor-use. cage, Its form permit-s its embodiment in variousnnediums such as celluloid, alumij 4 It is not-only susceptible of use; as a travelling case or wall nonnt forbathrooms, but as an advertising and. display Inedium for toilet goods and accessories. 5] l V a i ,Tlie form in which the invention is illus-- trated, while representing a preferable form o'fvthe invention is illustrative thereofand not intended to be'restrictive.
