CHARLES S. RAIZEN, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.
TOY DISH PLAYING SET.
Application filed March 5, 1925. SeriaI No. 13,022.
To all whom t may concern.:
Be it known that I, CHARLES S. RAIZEN, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Brooklyn, Kings County, State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Toy Dish Playing Sets, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to dish sets and in particular to a toy playing set of this character to beV used for the amusement of children.
A particular object of the invention is to provide a toy dish set the box in which the l5 same is sold being adapted not only for dis playing the goods at an advantage, but also being adapted for use as a toy cupboard for the childs amusement and play.
A further object of the invention is to provide a dish containing box, the cover of which may be used to serve as a table by children in their play.
A further object of the invention is to provide a box which will serve as a toy cupboard and which will be arranged to simulate the regular cupboard.
Referring to the drawing wherein I have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention;
Figure 1 is a side view in elevation of a toy dish playing set, the cover thereof'being broken away to show the door portions of the device,
Figure 2 is a front view in elevation with the cover completely removed to show how the container will appear in simulation of a cupboard,
Figure 3 is a partial section on the line 3-3 of Figure 1 showing how the cupboard doors are hinged to the sides of the box or container. g
Figure 4 is a perspective view of the underside of the cover, showing how the same may be converted for use as a toy table.
Figure 5 is a section in elevation taken on the line 5 5 of Figure 1 showing the construction of the box,
Figure 6 is a view in perspective of one of the leg members used with the cover for converting the same into a table,
Figure 7 is a perspective view of the cover after its conversion into a toy table; and
Figure 8 isan enlarged section on the line 8-8 of Figure 5 showing how the shelf and plate or utensil holding members are fas tened in position.
Referring to the drawing in detail 5 indicates a box comprising the usual bottom and sides 6 and 7 respectively, there being provided shelving partitions 8 extending be tween the sides 7 to divide the box into compartments.
In using the box it will normally rest on one end or be hung up on the wall through the medium of the loop 9 att-ached to the bottom thereof. The back of the box between the partitions 8 is provided with frictionally held retainer pieces 10 having suitable cut outs into which are forced the different dishes, as shown in Figures 5 and 8 a cup, for instance. rIhe box will be con- 'structed of cardboard and have attached thereto two swinging covers or doors 11, a binder strip 12 being used to serve as a hinge so that the doors can be swung open. The doors 11 are provided with cut outs 13 to represent windows and the partitions which serve as shelves are arranged in suitable relation to the cut outs to display the dishes 14, and the edges of some of the shelves, so that the fancypaper coverings 15 which cover the shelves and hang over the edges thereof will be displayed. The doors may be colored to imitate wood graining and have delineated thereon the knobs 16. The retainers 10 are provided with side pieces 17 which frictionally engage the sides of the box while the shelves or partitions 8 are provided with like side pieces 18 which are bent downward and glued or otherwise fastened to the sides of the box. The paper doilies or ornamental strips 15 may be glued to the shelves. For shipping or display purposes the dishes may be held in the cut outs in the retainers 10, but when the child receives the set she will throw away the retainer pieces 1() and the box being then stood on end or suspended, the vdishes 14 can be placed on the shelves 8, in the usual manner.
I provide a cover 19 for the box which fits over the doors 11 and is provided with end loops 20 which serve as handles so that the cover when turned upside down may be used as a toy serving tray. The inside of the cover 19 at its corners is provided with blocks 20L which are glued or otherwise suitably held in position and provided with bores 21 into which frictionally t the legs 22 one of which is shown in Figure (3, the
legs being constructed of wood or other suitable material, so that when the cover is set up on the legs as shown in Figure 7 it may be used as a play table. The cover has delineated or glued on the top'sur'face 3 Vthereof an imitation'center piece or table cover 24.
TWhen not in use the legs 2Q may be placed in the compartments formed bythe shelves 8. When the cover is in place over the box the whole presents a neat and compact appearance, and when removed the vboxmay beset up on end for sales display purposes. It wiil be evident that I have provided a novel. toy dish playing set', the parts of which make up a table, a;tray, a cupboard and a sales display unit, and atoywhich will give satisfaction and amusement kto children. v
