This invention relates to a holder.
An object of the invention is to provide a holder of the character described specially designed for attachment to the wall, or door, preferably the latter, of a toilet room for convenience as a receptacle for articles such as purses, hand bags, gloves and the like which are usually carried about the person.
Toilet rooms, at the present time, are usually not equipped with a holder or receptacle for receiving such articles as above referred to and accordingly, while using the facilities of the toilet room, such articles usually carried about the person must be deposited on the floor. The holder herein described has been provided as a convenient and sanitary depository for the purposes indicated.
It is another object of the invention to provide a holder of the character described that is of light construction, may be cheaply produced, easily applied or detached and which will present an ornamental appearance.
With the above and other objects in view the invention has particular relation to certain novel features of construction, arrangement of parts and use, an example of which is given'in this specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:
Figure 1 shows a perspective view of the holder as applied to the inner side of the door of a toilet stall.
Figure 2 shows a side elevation.
Figure 3 shows a front elevation,
Figure 4 shows a plan View, and
Figure 5 shows a perspective View of the holder, as applied to a wall.
Referring now more particularly to the drawing wherein like numerals of reference designate the same parts in each of the figures, the numeral I designates the stall door of a toilet room to which the holder may be attached.
The numeral 2 designates the front wall of the holder which is preferably of open work construction formed of stamped out metal. It is preferably triangular in shape for easy access to the interior of the holder and is formed with a triangular marginal frame consisting of a base 3, an upright 4 and a diagonal bar 5, all integrally joined together. The marginal frame members may be corrugated, if desired, for stifiness or otherwise stiffened as required. At the apexes of the frame there are the inwardly extended supporting legs 6, l, 8 of the required length whose inner ends have the overturned feet as 9, ll], H to fit closely against the inside sur face of the door, or wall through which the screws or bolts l2, l3, It may pass to secure the legs to the door, or wall.
The legs 8, l, have the inwardly turned lugs l5, l6 and supported on the legs 6, 1, there is the bottom strip ll, preferably formed of open work construction and which may be riveted, or otherwise secured, to the lugs l5, H6. The bottom strip H extends out each way beyond the legs 8, l so as to give greater capacity to the holder and has its ends i8, i8 upwardly turned as shown.
The holder is preferably formed of suitable sheet metal such as aluminum or the like but may be formed of any other selected material.
If desired the bottom strip ll may have the spaced depending flexible arms l9, l9 provided with the grips 20 for engagement with the sides of a conventional toilet paper box so as to anchor the holder more securely in place, as shown in Figure 5.
The drawing and description disclose what is now considered to be a preferred form of the invention by way of illustration only, while the broad principle of the invention will be defined by the appended claims.
What I claim is:
1. An article holder comprising a triangular front wall formed of open work and whose base is approximately horizontal, a supporting leg at each apex of the front wall and perpendicular to the plane of said wall, means at the free ends of said legs for securing the holder to a vertical supporting wall, a bottom strip resting on the legs which are at the base of the front wall, said bottom strip extending each way beyond said supporting legs and having its free ends upwardly turned.
2. An article holder comprising a triangular front wall formed of open work and whose base is approximately horizontal, a supporting leg at each apex of the front Wall and perpendicular to the plane of said wall, means at the free end of said legs for securing the holder to a vertical supporting wall, a bottom strip secured to the legs which are at the base of said front wall and extending each Way beyond said supporting legs and having its free ends upwardly turned.
