MARIE L. HAGARTY, OF LYNN, MASSACHUSETTS.
Application filed June 12, 1915.
T 0 all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, MARIE L. I'IAGARTY, a citizen of the United States, residing at L ynn, in the county oi' Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented new and useful Improvements in Clothes-Baskets, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in baskets, the object being to provide an article of this character or thev like, primarily intended for use as a clothes basket and provided with pockets for the reception of clothes pins, whereby both tl e clothes and pins may be easily carried to and from the line when desired, and the pins always arranged in convenient reach oi' the user.
The nature and advantages of the invention will be better understood from the following detail description, the invention residing in the specific construction andarrangement oi' parts described and claimed.'
In the drawing forming part of this application like numerals oi reference indicate similar parts in the several views and wherein:
Figure l is a perspective view of a basket constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view.
Referring more particularly to the drawing A indicates generally the basket which may be constructed from any suitable material, size or shape and comprises a bottom 5 and body portion 6, the latter dening a main compartment 7 for the reception of the clothes. Secured to the upper edge of the body portion 6 at the opposite ends thereof are the handles 8 for lifting and carrying the basket when desired. Arranged at the opposite ends of the bas :et are the arcuate shaped members l0 secured in any suitable manner to the body portion 6 and defining auxiliary compartments or pockets 11 by Copies of this patent may be obtained for ve cents eachl by addressing the Commissioner of Patents,

the intervening space therebetween and the body portion 6 of the basket. As shown in this specific instance the strips l2 constituting the body portion 6 are suitably inten woven to provide the arcuate shaped members 10 whereby the latter forms an integral part of the basket. It will be manifest that by reason of this construction the clothes and pins may both be simultaneously carried to and from the line when desired, and the pins supported in convenient reach of the user. The handles 8 are so disposed as not to interfere with the insertion of the hand within the pockets l1 for the purpose of removing a pin therefrom. IWhen the pins are removed from the line they may be easily dropped within the pockets and loss of the same prevented.
It is believed that from the foregoing description the nature and advantages of the invention will be thoroughly understood without requiring a more extended explanation and therefore the same has been omitted.
`What is claimed is A basket constructed from interwoven strips oi material to provide a main compartment, the material forming the side walls of the main compartment being eX- tended beyond the end walls thereof and interwoven to provide the substantially arcuate shaped members defining auxiliary compartments with said end walls, and the material forming said end walls being extended above the upper edge or" the basket to form handles lying in a vertical plane with said end walls.
In testimony whereof I ailix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
