ADJUSTABLE CABINET DISH TRAY.

Application filed September 15, 1927. Seriallo. 219,601.

This invention relates to a new and useful device in the nature of a combination shelf and dish rack especially adapted for the purpose of providing suitable shelves for books, bric-a-brac, or the like, or to be used on a kitchen sink, or wash stand, forthe purpose of drying, dishes. r

The object of the invention is to provide a combination shelf and dish rack of novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying'drawing.

Fig. 1 illustrates a side elevational view of my improved device as same would appear when in use for drying -dishes applied to a kitchen sink shown'in section.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken.

I the adjustable engaging device as embodied therein. I

As here embodied my improved device comprises a body member and shelves mounted therein, and an upright member 26 or support is secured to the body member 10 at or near one extremit thereof and is adapted to hold my improve device in an angularly inclined position when placed on the'sink 27 as shown in Fig. 1. v

.In Fig. 1, I have shown the usual sink 27 such as is ordinarily used in kitchens provided with the basin 28 having the drain pipe 29 connected thereto and provided with the usual hot and cold waterfaucets 30 and 31, positioned above the basin 28. The above described elements are those of ordinary construction and here illustrated merely to more *clearly show the use of my improved device as adapted for drying dishes.

I have shown my improved device consisting of a body member two separate sections 36 and 37 having their outer edges 38 and 39 formed or bent upwardly therefrom to form flanges. The shelves are constructed in two separate pieces 40 and 41 having their front and rear edges formed or bentas at 42 and 43 therefrom to form flanges and somewhat curved. The shelves 40 are of suitable size to slidably engage inside the shelves 41. The shelves 41 have formed therein elongated longitudinal openings 44 adapted .to receive the thumb screws 45 secured tothe shelves 40 as a meansof holding the shelves; 40 and 41 in an extended position as may be'desired.

The shelves 40 and 41 are provided with end elements 46, or lugs, at the center of the ends thereof, formed or bent therefrom, and each having 1 formed therein an aperture adapted to receive the pin 47 bolt, screw, or the like, as a means of pivotally securing the shelves 40 and 41 to the sides of the body members 36 and 37.

An engaging member 48 of arc shaped struction preferably of spring steel is se" cured to the inner'portion of the side flange 39 in proximity to the upper one of the said shelves 41 and has formed or bent outwardly therefrom prong elements 49 adapted to en- Y gage the ad acent edge of the said upper shelf so to hold the said shelf in any desired relatively'angular position. The threaded member 50 is threadedly mounted in the side 39 of the above mentioned body member 37 and is provided with an enlarged head 51. The above described construction is such as will permit one of the prongs 49 to be held in a fixed extended position as a means ofrigidly holding the upper shelf in a horizontal position so as to permit books, bric-a-brac,

or the like to be retained on the said upper shelf when my improved device is suspended or hung on the wall. The prongs 49 must be manually forced into retracted positions out of the path of the shelf 41 when the latter is swung to desired angular positions." Openings 52 and 53 are formed in then perportions of the body members 36 and 3 adapted to receive hooks, or the'like, not shown in the accompanying drawing, asa means of hang-J ing my improved device on the wall of a room The said shelves 41 are interconnected by when used as a shelf.

55 secured to the said shelves 41 and extend- The latter described construction is such as will permit the shelves 4() and 41 to be held in any desired angular position simultaneously.

It should be understood that the said shelves 40 and 41 when held in angular positions, as above set forth, will permit dishes 7 ing through openings 56 in the shelves 41. 1

of various sizesor diameters to be held, at the various inclined positions, and rods connect:

ed with all the shelves and arranged for simultaneously. angularly positioning the shelves as directed by the said one shelf,

2. In a device of the class described, a body formed of-relatively movable members having side flanges, shelves pivotally mounted between said side flanges, an are shaped memher with outwardly projecting prong elements, attached to the body member for holding one of the said shelves in various inclined positions, and rods connected with all the shelves and arranged for simultaneously angularly positioning the shelves as directed by the said one shelf.

3. In a device of the class described, a body formed of relatively movable members having side flanges, shelves telescopically arranged and pivotally mounted in the said side flanges, a means of holding the said shelves in anextended position, an engaging member secured to the said body memher, said engaging member-provided with prongelements adapted to engage one of the said shelves as a means of holding the said shelves in an angularly inclined position, said shelves being inter-connected by rods pivotally secured thereto.

In testimony whereof I have aiiixed my signature.

CHARLES ERNEST JOHNSON.
