E. W. BRAY ASH TRAY Aug. 4, 1942.

Filed Aug. 11, 1941 Patented Aug. 4, 1942 i UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE ASH TRAY Ernest W. Bray, Toledo, Ohio Application August 11, 1941, Serial No. 406,380

3 Claims.

The invention relates to a tray which may be freely supported from any overhanging member such for instance as the top of a table or the like.

The device is not rigidly fixed to the table but is provided with a member which rests on the top of the table while the main portion of the tray itself may project from the table. Attached to the tray is a downwardly projecting member which may be curved so that its unattached end goes under the table top. Near its end the member is provided with a weight which counterbalances the tendency of the tray to tip and at the same time tends to hold more or less tightly against the top of the table the member projecting from the tray so that it is held more or less firmly but removably in position.

The projecting member which extends and rests against the table top may be attached to the tray or be made integral therewith. If desired it may consist of or have incorporated in it a wire member, the ends of which extend across the top of the tray where, alone, or associated with one or more additional cross wires they may form a rest for cigarettes or the like or means for knocking oif the ash.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a transverse vertical section of one form of ash tray applied to the top of a table. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of an ash tray in position on a table. Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view of an ash tray and Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical section on the line 44 of Fig. 1.

There may be provided a hollow tray or ash receptacle ID from one side of which projects a member I I which may be made integral with the tray II]. It will be understood that the member ll may be a separate piece and fastened to the tray 10 in any suitable manner. Depending from the bottom of the tray is a curved member 12 which may be of any suitable form or material. The particular form illustrated may be a metal band or strip. The member I2 extends downward from the tray and is curved so that it extends substantially below the member I l and has near its end a weighted member l3. If desired the weighted member 13 may be adjustable in any suitable manner along the member 12 so as to be placed nearer to or further from the end of the member l2.

The member I2 may be integral with the tray ID or may be a separate member therefrom and fastened thereto in any suitable manner. As illustrated in the drawing the end of the member the bottom of the member [0 is formed a slot I5 which is approximately the width of the tongue I i and a littl more than twice the length of the tongue It. At one end, for instance the end toward the left in Fig. 1, the slot I5 is open at its bottom so that the tongue l4 may be freely inserted or withdrawn therefrom. A portion of the slot I 5, for instance the portion illustrated at the right in Fig. 1, may have its lower end partially closed by inwardly projecting flanges it so that when the tongue I4 is placed in the right hand end of the slot [5 it may be locked therein and more or less firmly held in place.

A U-shaped wire member I! may be placed across the top of the tray ID. The U-shaped member I! is preferably longer than the diameter of the tray so that as shown in the drawing it extends out and becomes substantially a part of the extending member ll. When the extending member H is present the portion of the U-shaped member lying thereover may be omitted and when the U-shaped member extends as shown the underlying portion f member Il may be omitted so that the extending portion of the U-shaped member I! may form the side extending member II. The portion of the U-shaped member I! extending across the tray l0 may be associated with one or more additional wire-like members I 8 which extend across the tray [0 to form a rest for cigarette or cigar, pipe or the like. The various wires may also be convenient to use for snufi'ing out or brushing oii ashes into the tray H3.

In use the extension II or the wires I! may be placed on the top of the projecting shelf or member l9, which may be a top of a table provided with supporting legs 20. Preferably the tray member it will be brought close to or in contact with the edge of the table top l9. In this position the weight l3, carried by the arm l2 will extend below the table top and balance the ash tray so that the extension member II is braced more or less firmly and substantially flat against the top of the table I9, thus holding the tray adjusted in position indicated in Fig. 1.

The invention may be embodied in other forms, shapes and proportions than those illustrated and the tray may be used for any suitable purpose.

I claim as my invention:

1. In an ash tray adapted to be associated with a table or the like, a pan adapted to extend from the table, a lip extending from the pan over the table to support the pan, a member exl2 is turned over so as to form a tongue M. In tending from the pan below the table and a weight on the end of the member under the table to balance the tra'y'. I

g 2. In an ash tray adapted to be associated with a table or the like, a pan adapted to extend from the table, rods extending across the pan and forming a lip extending from the pan over the table to support the, pan, a detachable member extending from the pan below the table and a pveight on the end of the member under the table to balance the tray.

3. In an ash tray adapted to be associated with a table or the like, a pan adapted to extend from the table, a lip extending from the pan over the table to support the pan, rods extending across the pan, a detachable member extending from the pan below the table, and a weight on the end of the member under the table to balance the tray.
