' I mwnnnr case.

Application filed March 6,1926. serial mi. 92906.

This invention relates'to a jewelry case, An object of this invention is to rovide a jewelry case so constructed that w en the cover is opened to display the jewelry thereigure 1 1s a perspective view of the easin I i igure 2 is a section taken on the line 2--2 of Figure 1, showing the casing in open position; Figure 3 is a similar section showing the case in closed ositionz .The form 0 the invention shown in the drawings is a preferred form, although it is understood that modification in the construction and arrangement of theparts and in the character of the materials used may be adopted without departing from the spirit of the invention asset rth in the 'ap ende'dclaims.

its general aspect theinvention com- Erises acase having a body ortion and a inged cover, To the cover 1s connected a f false bottom which normally lies flat within the body portion, but which when the cover is opened is moved to an inclined position so that the jewelry supporting pad which lies over the false bottom will be moved to 0 an inclined position when the cover is opened, thus displaying the jewelry more effectively than if the pad were lying flat.

In the preferred form of the invention I show a casing having a body portion 10 and a hinged cover 11, within which is to be disposed a jewelry supporting pad 12 of any suitable type. Within the bottom of the casing is disposed a false bottom plate 13,

which is constructed and ada ted to fold 5 along the lines indicated by t e numerals.

14, 15 and 16. The edge '16 of the false bottom is connected to'a ri id plate 17 projecting from one edge of t e cover.

The other edge 18 of the false bottom plate is adapted to lie within a channel or as grooved portion formed by bending over as at 19 the edge of a lining 20; When the 'cover is down as: shown in Figure 3, the

false bottom plate lies flat on the bottom lining 20 of the body portion of the casing 00 and the pad is disposed fiat beneath the cover. However, when the cover is moved to-its open position as shown inlFigure 2, the stiff portion 17 projecting from the' cover will pull on the false bottom plate 66 I and move it to the inclined. positionshown in Figure 2, when the front edge of the false bottom still retained in the groove, so as to hold it down on the bottom. The pad 12 will therefore be held i'n the inclined 10 position, when the jewelry thereon will be better displayed; v

- What I claim is:

1. A jewelry casing which comprises a body portion, a cover hinged thereto, .a stiff I5 plate projectmg from the cover, a lining'in" the body portion-having one edge bent over .to form a groove, a false bottom plate fold. able along certain predetermined lines having one edge lying within said groove and the other edge connected to the plate projecting from the cover, an article supporting pad normally disposed on the false bottom plate, the false bottom plate adapted to be moved to an inclined position when the cover is open to support the article supporting pad in an inclined relationshipwith respect to said body portion.

2,. A case comprising a body in the form of a receptacle, a cover hingedlyconnected Q with the bod a foldable false bottom connected with t e cover, the false-bottom normally adapted to lie flat withinthe body, and means slidably retaining a portionof the false bottom, so that in the movement of .the cover to an opened position, the false bottom will be moved to an inclined position.

3. A case comprising a body in the-form of a rece tacle, a cover hingedly connected me with the ody, a foldable falsebot tom connected with the cover, the false bottom norand an article supporting pad, within thebody movable in response to the movement of the false bottom, to an inclined position vwhen the coverisin itsopened position, and' to a position in which 1t lies on the false 10 bottom when the cover is in its' closed POSltlOD.
