The actuating arm I! if desired may be omitted and the auxiliary shelf I moved manually to its extended article receiving position, upon the opening of the door.

While I have shown, the arm supporting bracket l9 as being mounted on the door, it is to be understood that it may be mounted to the refrigerator side wall and the spring continuously tensioned so that the spring causes the shelf to slide to its operative position whenever the door is opened.

The shelf arrangement is simple in construction and occupies a very small space within the refrigerator food compartment. Furthermore, the auxiliary shelf is conveniently located for receiving articles, while other articles are being placed into or removed from the refrigerator, and is quickly and easily moved to and from its operative article receiving position.

Aside from the specific embodiment of the invention herein shown and described, it will be understood that numerous details of the construction may be altered or omitted without departing from'the spirit and scope of the invention.

What I claim is: 1. Thecombination with a cabinet having a door opening and a door for closing the same, of

merit of the cabinet, an auxiliary shelf slidably carried by said guide means, said shelf having a transversely extending rod portion, a bracket secured to said door, a swingable arm having an end portion hinged to said bracket and spaced projections at-the opposite end thereof disposed at opposite sides of said rod portion for engagement therewith, and a coil spring surrounding said first mentioned end portion and having one end engaged with said bracket and the other end engaged with said arm whereby upon opening movement of said door said spring is tensioned and slidably, moves said shelf to extended article supporting position.

2. The combination with a cabinet having an open doorway, a door for closing said doorway, guide means mounted in said cabinet, a shelf slidably disposed on said guide means, a slide rod secured transversely on the end of said shelf adjacent the door, a bracket secured to said door,

force tending to move the slidable shelf outwardly when said door is opened. v MARTIN J. GOULOOZE.
