NITD `STATES ISAAC MARKS, OF HARVEY, ILLINOIS.
Application led November 13, 1922. Serial No. 600,672.
To all whom t may concern Be it known that I, ISAAC MARKS, a. citizen of the United States of America, residingvat Harvey, in the county of Cook, State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Receptacles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a toll, clear, concise, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvementsin receptacles, having for an object to provide a watch-glass receptacle of such construction as will permit the arrangement, in classitied order, ot' watch-glasses of different sizes therein, thus facilitating the housing of the same as well as the selections of a particular or desired size of watch-glass.
Another and equally important object of the invention is to p-rovide a receptacle wherein diierent sizes of watch-glasses received therein will be displayed to the full view oi a person upon opening of the receptacle and yet, will in no way have their classified order disturbed during such opening or displaying.
Other objects will be in part obvious and in part pointed out hereinafter.
In o-rder that the invention and its mode of operation may be readily understood by persons skilled in the art, I have in the accompanying illustrative drawings, and in the detailed following description based thereon, set out one possib-le embodiment of the same.
In these drawings Figure 1 is a plan view of the improved receptacle with the cover therefor in its open position;
Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal section through the improved receptacle;
Figure 3 is a vertical transverse section therethrough; and,
Figure 4 is a fragmentary detail in elevation showing the particular type of catch employed for securing the cover in its closed position.
Having more particular reference to the drawings, in connection with which like characters of reference will designate corresponding parts throughout, the improved receptacle may be stated to comprise a body 1, substantially rectangular in shape and having a longitudinally disposed tapered pocket 2 formed therein, substantially semicircular in cross section as clearly shown in the Figure 8. This tapered pocket 2 is divided into a plurality of compartments by means of transversely disposed semi-circular partitions generally indicated bythe numeral 3, the marginal portions of which are adapted to be engaged in correspondingly formed grooves in the pocket as shown in the Figure 2.
A cover a is provided for the body 1 and as will be noted, is of a size and shape corresponding thereto, being hinged to the rearward upper marginal por-tion of the body 1, as indicated by the numeral 5 and having a pivoted catch arm 6 mounted upon the intermediate portion' of its forward marginal portion adapted to be engaged in a suitable keeper 7 secured to a corresponding or adjacent portion of the body 1. Thus, with engagement ot the pivoted catch 6 in its keeper 7, the cover t will be held against swinging or hinged movement with respect to the body l.
The cover 4f is provided with a longitudinally disposed tapered pocket 8, corresponding in size and shape to the pocket 2 of the body l and as illustrated in the Figures 2 and 3, with swinging of the cover 4 to its closed position, will constitute a tapered compartment, circular in cross section.
For the purpose ot' classifying watchglasses arranged in the compartments formed in the longitudinally disposed tapered pocket 2, markings generally indicated by the numeral 9, are presented or inscribed upon the upper tace of the body 1, as shown in the Figure 1, adjacent said compartments and thus, will indicate to a user of the receptacle the particular compartment in which the different sized watchglasses are to be placed as well as indicate the particular or desired size of watchglass with opening of the receptacle Jfor selection ot its contents.
Because ot the circular cross-sectional formation of the tapered compartment provided by the juxtaposed pockets 2 and 8, it will be understood that the watch-glasses received in the device, will be snugly engaged therein and in consequence, their displacement irrespective of the movement of the receptacle will be prevented. However, with arrangement ot the body 1 upon a suitable support and the swinging of the hinged cover 4; to its open position, the watchglasses will be fully exposed to view of a person desiring to select some particular size therefrom.; or to replenish the store of vvateh-glassesV in their respective classified order therein.
Maniestly, the construct-ion shown is capable of considerable modification and such modification, as is Within the scope of iny claim, I consider Withinthe spirit of rny invention.
As Watch-glass receptacle comprising a body, axcoven?` therefor hinged to one portion of thesarne, said body and cover having eoniplenientally shaped longitudinally disposed tapered pockets therein, semi-circular in cross-section and adapted, when arranged in juXta-posed relation, to form a snug compart-ment varying in diameter throughout its length for Watch-glasses, and a plurality of transversely disposed semicircular partitions arranged in the pockets in said body dividingy the same into individual compartments, the adjacent portions of said body having markings thereon, as and for the` purpose set forth;
In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
