Patented Oct. 24, 1950 UNITED STAT S RECEPTACLE WITH OUTWARDLY SWINGABLE SIDE WALLS John Golino, Brooklyn, N. Y.

Application March 1, 1949, Serial No. 78,903

This invention is an improvement in receptacles; and particularly receptacles of artistic appearance adapted for the convenient storage of toilet articles and other things for personal use upon desks, dressing tables and the like pieces of furniture.

It is an important object of this improvement to provide a receptacle designed to serve as an ornament in a room, and capable of being opened by release of the sides upon manipulation of one of the principal outside parts.

Another object is to' provide a receptacle of unique form, which is closed and opened by movement of the sides to folded and unfolded position.

The drawings illustrate the preferred form of the invention which is fully described herein and the novel features are defined in the claim. But this disclosure is explanatory only and numerous variations in structure may be adopted Without deviation from the essential construction thereof.

On the drawings:

Figure 1 shows the receptacle of this invention in side elevation as it appears when closed, a portion being broken away to expose the formation by which it is kept closed.

Figure 2 is a top View of the receptacle with its sides unfolded.

The numeral l indicates the bottom of the receptacle and 2 the sides, which are triangular, with the base edges connected by hinges to the bottom I. The latter has the form of a regular hexagon with six sides, but the number of sides can be greater or less. The hinges include strips 3 of rubber or other elastic material glued or otherwise attached to the sides 2 and base I to actuate the sides to open or unfold outward.

At the center of the bottom is a rigid upright post 4. The apexes or upper ends of the triangular sides are adjacent this post when the sides are folded to close the receptacle. They are held in such position by a member 5 movably mounted on the post 4. This member is hollow and is normally drawn downward by resilient elements 6, which are rubber bands attached to the post a little below said member and to the interior of the member 5 about the mid-point of the height thereof. The member can have any desired formation but is shown as resembling the torso 1 and the arms 8 of a woman, and above the member 5 is the head 9, fixed on the top of the post 4, the adjacent part of which serves as the neck. The member 5 can be raised when grasped by hand under the arms 8.

The outer surfaces of the sides 2 and member 5 are finished to represent a dress, and when the sides are folded and held by the member 5, the receptacle presents the figure of a mannikin, with legs 10, attached to the base I. To open the receptacle the member 5 is lifted, releasing the sides, which at once unfold and drop to the posi- 1 Claim. (Cl. 206-1) tions shown in Figure 2, like the petals of a flower. To close the receptacle, the sides are lifted by hand, the member 5 raised and then liberated to be pulled down and encircle the upper pointed ends of the sides 3, holding the latter around the post 4. The lower edge of the hollow member 5 is bevelled to fit the slope of the sides 2.

The inner faces of the sides carry vials of perfume, boxes of rouge, lipstick and other articles indicated at H, held by bands or retainers 12. under which the are slipped. A plate I 3 secured by studs M on the upper side of the base I has openings of suitable outline for insertion of other articles I 5.

The bands 3 are supplemented by strips of cloth [6 or the like, secured to the adjacent edges of the sides and base, and the bands are laid over these and afiixed at their ends to the base and sides. Spring hinges may of course be used, if desired.

The inside faces of the sides and bottom can be covered with silk, velvet or othermaterial glued in place, and the outside faces of the sides can be similarly finished. The outside linings I! and [8 of the sides and base overlie the ends of the elastic bands 3.

The receptacle therefore has a, highly attractive exterior and interior and serves well for its intended purpose.

' Having described my invention, what I believe to be new is:

A receptacle having a base, a post fixed to the center of the base, sides attached to the peripheral edges of the base and movable towards and from the base, said sides having the form of triangles with pointed outer ends, and a movable member slidably mounted on the post above the sides to encircle said ends and hold the sides in positions closing said receptacle, said member having elastic connections with the post to hold the member down in engagement with the sides, and the sides having hinge means uniting them to the base and elastic parts under tension between the sides and base tending to unfold said sides.

JOHN GOLINO.
