A TTORNEVS MARK J. CASESL'OF NEW RICHMOND, .WISCONSIN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Get. 12, 1915.
Application filed March 31, 1915. Serial No. 18,289.
T 0 all whom it mag concern:
Be it known that I, MARK J. CASEY, a citizen of the'United States, and a resident of New Richmond, in the county of St.
Croix and State-of Wisconsin, have inout of the way position, as within acabinet, and which may be withdrawn from said cabinet to permit close inspection of the casket.
A further ob ect is to provide supports for such. shelving which is of strong and substantial construction, whereby the casket is a supported equally as well outside of as within the cabinet; and further objects are to which are simple in construction and formed 1 of few parts not likely to get out oforder to require repair, which are well adapted to the purpose for which they are designed, and which are comparatively inexpensive.
My invention is fully described in the following specification, of which theaccompanying drawings form a part, in which like reference characters refer to like parts in each of the views, and 1nwh1ch:-
Figure 1 1s a front elevation of a cabinet provided with a plurality of my shelves;
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of one of said shelves in unextended position; and Fig. 3
thereon; The bars 9 and 10, at each shelf end,
are pivotally connected with the outer ends of arms 13 and 14,-respectively, the former of which is connected with a standard 15 rotatablymounted in clips 16 and the latter of which is similarly connected with a standard 17 rotatably supported by clips 18. The
connections between the arms and respective standards may be made by means of a T-connection as shown in the lower part of Fig. 1, or by means of an elbow connection as also shown in said figure, but I do not limit myself to any specific detail construction in this respect. By means of this construction it will be seen that I may swing either end of the shelf independently of the other, inwardly or outwardly of the cabinet, or I may swing bothends of said shelf outwardly or inwardly simultaneously, thereby enabling a salesman to draw out either end of a casket for inspection, or the entire casket when desired, and said casket is safely stored within the cabinet when not being offered for sale. My shelf supports are just as efficacious inv the outward shelf position as in the inward position thereof and may be quickly and easily installed for use by even an unskilled personand, by making the standa'rd of short length, I may superimpose a number of shelves wlthin a cabinet without interference, one-with another, thereby enwithin the scope of the following claims,
without departing from the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.
Having fully described my invention,
what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The combination with a cabinet, of a shelf, two bars in pivotal connection with each other and with said shelf, at each end thereof, an'arm in pivotal connection with each bar, and means for pivotally mounting said arms in said cabinet.
2. The combination with a cabinet, of a, shelf, two bars in pivotal connection with each other and with said shelf, at each end thereof, two arms in normal parallelism at each shelf end in pivotal connection with' the corresponding bars, and clips for rota tably holding said arms in said cabinet.
3. The combination with a cabinet, of a shelf, two'bars in pivotal connection with MARK J. CASEY.
each other and with said she1f,,a-t each end. thereof, said bars being offset to bear against the underside of said shelf, two arms in normal parallelism at each shelf end in pivotal connection with the corresponding bars, and clips for rotatably holding said arms in said cabinet.
