V r .1 Claim. This is a divisional application of my co-pending application, Serial No. 397,636, filed June 11, 1941.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in combination sinks and washtubs and has'particular reference to a cover attachment for the sink and tub adapted to close the same when not in use.
An important object of the invention is to provide pivot members at one edge of the cover seated in the recesses at the opposed walls of the sink and tub to facilitate upward swinging movementofthelid. l H
An additional object is to provide a device of this character of simple and practical construction, which is neat and attractive in appearance, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and install in position and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.
Other objects and advantages reside in the de-, tails of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being'had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wherein like reference numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which- Figure 1 is a top plan view ofa combined sink and. tub structure provided with a single cover or Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view.
Figure 3 is a vertical transverse sectional view,
Figure 4 is Referring now to the drawing in detail wherein for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed Serial No. 468,976
ing constructed as a unit and provided with a rear splash sh'ield I.
The adjacent edges of the sink and tub are spaced apart and connected by a horizontal web memberB which extends from front to rear of the sink and tub members.
Formed in the front and rear walls of the sink and tub at a point immediately above the Web 8 are recesses 9 adapted for receiving substantially conical shaped rubber heads from the front and rear edges of a reversible lid 26. One head 24 is secured tothe lid by a pin it fixedly anchored in the lid and the other head 25 is spring projected as indicated at 25'.
an enlarged sectional view through the lid or cover.
tub, the sink. and. tub beders, and
The lid is adapted to swing into a covering position on either the sink or tub and its free edges rest on shoulders 21 on the inner walls of the sink and tub to support the lid substantially flush with the upper edges thereof.
Handles 28 and 29 are secured to opposite sides of the lid adjacent its free edge to raise the same a from one position to the other.
It is believed the details of construction, operation and manner of use of the device will be readily understood from the foregoing without further detailed explanation.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
A combined sink and tub construction having front, rear and side walls and-said side walls having inwardly disposed shoulders and said front and rear walls having recesses therein on their inner surfaces at a point above the adjacent side walls of the sink and tub and above saidshoula lid having projections at opposite side edges pivoted in said recesses and swingable into a position over either the sink or the tub for resting on the shoulders therein.
