COMBINED DRESSER, WARDROBE, BOOKGASE, AND ,RAGK.

Application filed March 1, 1926. Serial No. 91,612.

The invention relates to chamber furniture and provides in a single article a chest of drawers, a Wardrobe, a photo rack, a book case and storage space for winter clothing,

the several parts being compactly arranged and readily accessible and normally closed for protection and to insure a neat and tidy appearance at all times. l

The invention relates to an article of the character aforesaid having the parts in duplicate, so that each of two persons, as man and wife, may have an allotted space without interference one with the other, thereby assuring a degree of privacy and obviating confusion which is a, desideratum in an article of this character.

While the drawings illustrate a preferred embodiment of the invention it is to be understood that in adapting the means to meet specific needs and requirements, the design may be varied and such other changes in the minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the invention as claimed, without departing fromthe spirit thereof.

For a full understanding of the-invention and. the merits thereof, reference is'to be had to the following description and the drawings hereto attached, in which,

Figure 1 is "a perspective view of a combined article of chamber furniture embodying the invention, one-of the side mirrors and the adjacent door being partly open,

Figure 2 is a vertical transverse sectional view on the line 2-2 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows,

Figure-3 is 'a'view similar to Figure 2 taken on "the line 33"o,f Figure 1, looking in the direction ofthe arrows,

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view on the line 44 of Figure 3 looking to the rear, as indicated by the arrow,

Figure 5 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 55'of Figure 2, and

Figure 6 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 6-6 of Figure 3.

Corresponding. and like parts are referred to in the following descn tion and designated in the several views-o the drawings by like reference characters.

The article comprises a suitable case or cabinet which is subdivided into similar spaces for conveniently receiving the sundry articles and a chest of drawers and com rises a top 10, a back 11, a bottom 12 and suitable front and sides made up of a plurality of parts, as will appear more fully hereinafter. A partition 13 is disposed intermediate the front and the back of the cabinet in a plane parallel therewith and subdivides the cabis net into front and rear spaces, the front space receiving the chest of drawers and the. rear space constituting the wardrobe 14. Atransverse partition 15 intersects the partition 13 and is disposed midway between the sides of the cabinet to divide the same into "equal parts, so that a wardrobe 14 of like size and capacity is provided at each side of the partition 15. A door 16 closeseach of the wardrobes 14 and forms a part of the side of the cabinet. A shelf 17 is located in the upper portion of the rear space and closes the top of the wardrobe 14 and forms a space 18 designed chiefly for the reception of hats and analogous articles. The space 18 is closed by a door, which likewise forms a part of the side of the cabinet. A shelf 20 extends over the front and rear spaces formed by the partition 13 and extends'from the front to the back of the cabinet, as shown most clearly in Figures 2 and 3. The space above the shelf 20 and between it-and the toplO is divided by a partition 21 into front and rear spaces, the front space constituting a book case and the'rear space 22 being cedar lined, as indi-- cated at 22, and utilized as a storage for winter clothing, or other articles to be stored away for a period The storage space 22 is accessible at the top and ends and is closed at the top by a cover 23 and at the ends by doors 19. The cover 23 is hinged to swing upwardly and. the doors 19 are"hinged to swing outwardly. Thespace forwardly of the artition 21 provides a book-case 24 whic is closed at the front by doors 25 which are spaced apart, as shown most clearly in Figure 1 to accommodate a clock 26. The cover 23 forms a part of the'top ofthe cabinet and the doors l9 and the ends of the book case 24 form parts of the sides of the cabinet.

' The lower portion of the space forwardly of the partition 13 receives. a chest of drawers, including two darge drawers 27 and three small drawers 28 and 29. The large drawers 27 extend the full width of the cabinet and are designed to receive articles which are adapted to lie flat. The drawers 29 at opposite sides'of'the middle drawer 28 are adapted to receive neck-ties, collars, cuffs, handkerchiefs and the like. The middle drawer 28 is designed chiefly to receive toilet articles, manicuring inno i struments and vanities. The upper portion of the space forwardly of the partition 13 receives drawers 30, 31 and 32, a tier of shelves 33 and a rack 34, the latter being designed principally to receive photographs. A partition 35 divides the upper portion of the space and constitutes the back of the shelves 33 and racks 34, the drawers 31 bein located in the rear of the partition 35 and fietween said partition and the upper portion of the partition 13. The space above the drawers 31 and between the partitions 13 and 35 is provided with a shelf 36 and is closed by means of a door 37. The space 38 above the shelf 36 may receive underwear, whereas the space 39 below the shelf 36 and above the drawer 31 may receive personal belongings of any nature.

The space forwardly of the intermediate portion of the partition 35 and between the racks 34 and shelves 33, receives a mirror 40 which is hinged at its upper end and is free to swing inwardly at its lower end. A suitable electrolier 41 is provided at the top of the mirror 40, to shed light thereon. Side mirrors 42 are arranged forwardly of the middle mirror 40 and are hinged at their inner vertical edges so as to swing forwardly at their outer vertical edges. The side mirrors 42 in conjunction with the middle mirror 40 admit of a person viewing the back and sides so as to observe the fit of a garment when dressing. A door 43 closes the front of the shelves 33 and rack 34 and is located in the rear of the mirror 42 and covers the rack and shelves when the mirror is swung forwardly.

The bottom of the wardrobe 14 is in a lower plane than the bottom closing the space receivin the chest of drawers and may be utilize to receive shoes and sundry articles. A suitable rack 44 is located in the upper portion of the wardrobe to receive hangers from which articles of clothing are suspended, as indicated most clearly in Figure 2. The drawers 32 are located between the drawers 30 and in the rear of the partition 35, and in consequence, are accessible from the wardrobe only, as indicated most clearly in Figure 6. In consequence of the location of the drawers 32 they may be utilized for the reception of money, valuable papers and other articles to be secretly stowed.

The article is of such construction that each one half, separated by the partition 15 is the duplicate of the other, hence two persons jointly occupyin the device can enjoy equal privileges and the personal belongings may be kept separated, thereby avoidingconfusion, inconvenience and annoyance.

For convenience of handling and moving, the article may be made in sections. the dresser and bookcase in one section and the wardrobe and winter clothing storage in another section. This also admits of the depth and capacity being increased without providing a piece of furniture that can not be readily passed through ordinary doorways.

A mirror 45 is applied to the front of each of the drawers 28 and 27 and .these mirrors 45 together with the mirror 40 povide in effect a long mirror to admit of a full length view when required to observe the effect and set of a garment.

Having thus described the invention, I claim:

1. In an article of furniture of the type having drawers in the front and drawers and compartments in the side thereof. the combination of a centrally arranged mirror hinged at its top and two mirrors hinged at the sides of said central mirror to swing toward each other, the said central mirror being inset in said article of furniture, and means providing a plurality of open compartments and a secret compartment behind said mirrors.

2. An article of manufacture comprising a base, a superstructure resting upon said base and having a rear portion extending across the rear portion of the top of the base and side portions extending forwardly and provided with compartments opening through the fronts of the side portions, a vertical mirror carried by the superstructure between the side extensions, shields for the fronts of the side portions of the superstructure hinged along the inner side edges thereof and adapted to be swung into and out of closed positions, and vertical mirrors companion to the center mirror hinged along the inner side edges of the fronts of the side portions of the superstructure and having swinging movement independent of the shields.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
