Description

June 12, 1934. J. FULTON WRITING AND STATIONERY CASE Filed Sept. 5. 1929 J 77ulion Patented June 12, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE In Great Britain 1 Claim.
This invention relates to writing and stationery cases suitable for use by travellers, journalists and the like, or for other purposes for which such cases are useful as hereinafter described.
According to this invention, a case of rectangular or other suitable form is provided with a side face or Wall thereof, or double or false side or wall, which is capable of being reversed so as to bring the inner face thereof to the exterior. To the inner face of the said reversible side face or wall is attached a blotting pad, a pad of Writing paper, drawing paper for the use of artists, or any other article which it is desired to provide in a convenient position for use on occasions, e. g. journeys, when the necessary support for the article in question and the facilities for making use thereof are lacking.
The case can thus be used as a portable writing desk or table, having supported thereon convenient articles for the use for example of a traveller, the said articles being protected from damage when not in use by turning the reversible wall of the case so as to bring the inner side thereof back into the interior of the case.
In the accompanying drawing, the invention is shown as applied to an ordinary attache case and shows the said case supplied with a blotting pad supported upon the inner face of the reversible side wall thereof. The invention may however be applied to travelling cases, dressing cases, sewing cases and work baskets or to provide in an ordinary attach case upon a reversible wall thereof, the articles included in manicure cases, vanity boxes, smokers companions, bridge sets, or any other desired articles.
In the said drawing,
Figures 1, 2 and 3 are perspective views of a case constructed in accordance with this invention.
In the drawing, Figures 1-3, a box or case 1 has one side thereof hinged to the box at 3, and cut to form a frame 2, wherein the cut out portion 4 is revolubly supported by means of a rod 5 mounted in the frame 2. To the inner face of the cut out part 4 is affixed a blotting pad or the like 6, secured by means of corner pieces '7. The interior of the box 1 may be divided into compartments by partitions 8 for the convenient carriage within the case of paper, envelopes, labels, pens and the like.
September 6, 1928 When it is desired to use the box or case 1 as a writing desk or the like, the box is opened by turning the frame 2 upon its hinge as shown in Figure 1; the cut out part 4 is revolved upon the rod 5, as shown in Figure 2, to bring the blotting pad or the like 6 from the interior to the exterior of the box 1 into the position shown in Figure 3, ready for use. The case 1 can thus be used as a portable writing desk when travelling, the blotting pad 6 (for which may be substituted a pad of writing paper, if desired) being protected when it is not desired to use the case as a writing desk. The blotting pad 6 may be secured to the part 4 by means of the corner pieces 7, provided upon the part 4 and engaging with the. borders of the cardboard base of the blotting pad.
When the box or case 1 is shut ready for travel and when it is shut as shown in Figure 3, ready for use, the blotting pad 6 being then upon the exterior of the box 1, the reversible part 4 is maintained in position by engaging at its inner side against the edges of the body of the case 1.
When the reversible lid of a case constructed in accordance with this invention is in the reversed position, i.e., with the inner face thereof brought to the exterior of the case, a writing desk, a sketching block or other convenient support is provided for use when travelling.
I claim:
A writing case comprising a lid member hinged to the body of the said case and. having an aperture therein, a second lid member lying within and completely filling the aperture in the lid member first mentioned, and having on one side thereof means for attaching a pad of paper or the like thereto, partitions forming separate compartments in the body of the case, a rotary connection between the two lid members at substantially central positions along opposite sides of the said lid members to allow complete closure of the case with either face of the second lid member exposed exteriorly to the case, the upper edges of the said partitions forming a seating for the second lid member in both closed positions thereof.
- JAMES FULTON.
