My invention relates to improvements in receptacles particularly adapted for carrying and protecting dishes and other eating utensils for use on automobile parties and a picnics.

It is an object of the invention to provide an article of'the above mentioned character which is sim lo and durable in construction, coinpact an serviceable in use, and inex-' l pensive to manufacture. Y

A further object of the invention is to provide an article composed of complementary trays secured together to form a receptacle inwhich dishes and other articles may be placed and conveniently carried from place to place. Y

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent durmg'the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing, formin a part; of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout t e same,

Fig. 1, is a top plan view of the-bottom tray, showipg the arrangement fof the articles. v

Fig. 2, is a side elevation of the whole receptacle,

Fig. 3, is a fragmentary sect onal view showing the means for connecting the trays,

.to ether, and, c

ig. .4, is a fragmentary sectional view of the bdttom'tray showing one of the spring clips employed to securethe articles in place. In the drawing,vwherein for the purpose of illustrationI have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numerals 5',

and 6, denote a pair of'compleme tary' tra s mounted in superposed relation, orming t e.

The flange of the bottom tray 5 is rovided with a groove 10, surroundixgn e tray, v rib 11 formed on the flangeofthe'upper tray 6, so when the'trays are fitted'togetherthey will be secured against longitudinal and plates or saucers lateral movement. The 11', as more clearly shown in Fig. 1, are placed in the bottom tray 5 and are held in position by thespring clip 12,'which has one end pivotally connected to" the an 1e bracket 13, mountedinone corner of e 14', secured to the bottom of the lower tray, -ad]acent one side.

The salt and pepper coutainers are held in place by the brackets 14, whlch pro ect laterally from the angle bar g The brackets ea'ch con- 51st of opposed semi-circular spring arms 15, adapted to enga e and secure the. containers in place. The cups 15' areplaced in the lower tray in an inverted position. and will be held in place by the upper tray. The kn'1ves, forks and spoons, not shown; may be inserted through the handles -16 onfl-the bottom tray, the two trays are fastened together by spring clips 16, .at -each side.

A suitable handle, not shown, may. attached to the trays to facilitate carrying' of the rece tacles. 4

In use, t e receptacle affords a convenient and sanitary way of packing and car d shes and other artlcles to be use on picmcs. When the-'plates anddishes are removed, the trays ma then be used. as a table on which the cod be served. Thus, it is seen that the receptacle serves as a very article and-is so arranged and designed asto be easily handled. V

It-is to be understoodthat-the form of an invention herewith-shown andv described 18 a to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that certain ch'angw the shape size and arrangement of parts ma be re? sorted to without departing from o spirit of the invention or the scope of the subj oi'ned claims.
