Application filed December 7, 1925.
My invention relates to an improvement in toilet cases and has for one of its objects the provision of a toilet case having articlecarrying pockets which provide side closures for the case, the end closures being provided by folding the ends of the body portion over upon the pockets.
A still further object of my invention is the provision of a toilet case in which open ended pockets are provided on the face of the body portion of the case which while retaining the toilet articles in place against accidental displacement when the case is in open position will permit of the ready removal of the articles when desired.
' in perspective;
Fig. 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 1.
F 41 is a perspective view of the body portion of the case, and
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the trans verse strip employed for providing the article receiving pockets of the case.
Referring to the drawings in detail 1 designates the main or body portion of my improved toilet case, this body portion 1 being composed of an elongated strip of leather or other suitable flexible material. 2 designates a transverse strip also of leather, for example, or other suitable flexible material which is superimposed upon and attached to the main or body portion 1. This transverse strip 2 as will be seen from an inspection of Fig. 5 has relatively broad ends 3 and a relatively narrow intermediate portion 1. An inspection of Fig. 1 will show that the broadened ends 3 of the transverse strip 2 are attached to the body portion 1 adjacent the sides thereof by parallel rows of stitching or by other suitable securing or attaching means. Intermediate the ends 3 of this transverse strip, the strip is attached to the body portion 1 by two rows of stitching or other securing means to thereby provide a plurality of pockets designated 5, 6, and 7. These pockets extend Serial No. 73,570.
longitudinally of the toilet case, are open ended at each end and the side walls. of the pockets 5 and 7 as will be apparent from Fig. 2 provide side closures for the case.
These pockets are adapted to receive toilet articles, a shaving kit, having been illustrated in the drawing, although it is to be understood that other articles may be substituted therefor if desired.
The ends of the body portion 1 extend beyond the ends of the pockets 5, '6 and 7 to provide end closure members or flaps 8 and 9. The end of the closure flap 8 is turned over upon itself and stitched along the middle thereof longitudinally of the body portion such as indicated at 10 to provide two pockets which are convenient for the reception of razor blades. hen the device is in closed position the flaps 8 and 9 are merely bent over the pockets as indicated in Fig. 2 and locked or fastened by snap fasteners 11 or other suitable fastening means.
It will be seen from the foregoing therefore that I have provided a toilet case which is exceedingly simple in construction and yet which at the same time is very useful for the purpose for which it has been designed. For example, my improved toilet case possesses the advantage over existing cases in that when the same is in open position, that is to say when the flaps 8 and 9 are opened out as illustrated in Fig. 1, the toilet articles are still retained in their respective pockets and by making the pockets containing the articles open ended it will be seen that while the articles cannot be accidently displaced, they may, however, be readily removed when desired.
What I claim is 2- 1. In a toilet case the combination of an elongated main or body portion, a strip eX- tending transversely of said body portion and attached thereto at each end and intermediate its ends to provide a plurality of pockets open at each end only and extending lengthwise of the body portion, the body portion extending beyond the ends of the pockets to provide end closure flaps, the outer walls of said pockets providing side closures for the toilet case.
2. In a toilet case, an elongated or body portion, a strip having relatively broad ends and a relatively narrow intermediate portion extending transversely of the body portion and attached to the same byv a plurality of joins extending longitudinally of the body portion, to provide relatively long pockets open at the ends only at each side of the body portion and an intermediate rela tively short open ended pocket, the sides of the first mentioned pockets providing side closures for the case, and the ends of the body portion extending beyond the ends of the pockets and toldable thereover to provideend'closure members.
3. In a toilet ca' se the combination of an elongated flexible body portion, a strip extending transversely of the body portion, saidftransveise, strip extending from side to side o'i" the body portion and having broadened ends attached tothe body portion adjacent the side edges, of the latter to provide side closures, t' wo spaced lines of join behveenthe transverse strip and the body portion intermediate the ends of the former, to provide three pockets extending lengthwise of the case, the two outside pockets being relatively long as compared With the intermediate pocket, the body portion of the ease extending beyond the ends of said pockets to provide flaps i'oldable over the pockets to close the case.
4. A toilet case comprising a body portion, a plurality of pockets open at the ends only and attached to the face of the same and intermediate the ends thereof, the outer Walls of said pockets providing side closures for the case the ends of the body portion being foldable over the pockets to close the ends of the case.
