BERTHH LLI BIN BY E ATT/VY United States Patent Gti ice 3,086,572 Patented Apr. 23, 1963 3,086,572 RULTI-RECEPTACLE POCKETBOK Bertha Lubin, 1880 E. 4th St., Brooklyn, N.Y. Filed May 1s, 1961, ser. No. 111,894 1 claim. (el. 15o-3s) This invention relates to a ladys carry-all or general purpose kit for supporting and transporting a number of containers enclosing a variety of toilet and utility articles, personal belongings or paraphernalia.
There is considerable demand for a multiple container general purpose kit by women. Handbags have been made heretofore for this purpose but they have been limited in usefulness to certain specific purposes.
A principal object of the present invention is to provide a plate-like body for supporting a variety of toilet and utility articles, personal belongings and the like, on both sides, in convenient position for removal from the containers and use, the body being provided with a handle for transporting the same.
Another object of the invention is to provide a platelike support for supporting a number of containers of various sizes and shapes and having a variety of different closure members, said containers being supported in position convenient for opening and being openable without removal from' the support.
Yet another object of the invention is to provide a carry-all support for supporting containers enclosing toilet and utility articles, personal belongings and the like wherein the containers have their open ends disposed in convenient position for opening.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a carry-all kit for supporting containers enclosing toilet and utility articles and personal belongings that is adapted to be readily parked in small quarters such as in trains, automobiles and small washrooms ready for use.
The invention broadly contemplates a plate-like support for containers enclosing pencils, pens, combs, nail les, coin purses, mirrors, memorandum pads, booklets, keys, eye-glasses, photos, handkerchiefs, and other small articles of wearing apparel. The support is provided with an elongated flexible hand-le adapted to be grasped by the hand of the user or adapted to be slung over the shoulder of the user.
For further comprehension of the invention and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:
FIG. l is a front perspective view of a carry-all kit embodying one form of my invention, various containers supporting items being shown supported on the front side thereof.
FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view thereof, various containers supporting items being shown supported on the rear side thereof.
FIG. 3 is a vertical sectional View taken on the line 3-3 of FIG. 1 on an enlarged scale.
FIG. 4 is a front perspective View of a carry-all kit embodying a modified form of the invention, various containers supporting items being shown supported on the front side thereof.
Referring in detail to the drawings, in FIG. 1 a carryall support embodying one form of the invention is shown and designated generally by the reference numeral 1G. The carry-all support comprises a square-shaped body constituted by a plate 12 approximately 13 x 13 inches and 1A inch thick but may be rectangular in shape or any desired thickness. The plate is smooth surfaced at the front 14 and rear 16 and has smooth edges 18. The plate is preferably composed of suitable plastic material but may be made of any other suitable material. Adjacent the right hand upper corner, the plate is cut away forming an opening 19, and closely spaced to the left of opening 19, there is another opening 21 in the plate for a purpose to be presently described.
In accordance with the invention, a number of con- -tainers are suitably mounted and supported on the front 14 of the plate in spaced relationship, the containers supporting various items or articles of toilet, utility or personal belongings. For example, a rectangular shaped eye-glass holder 20 of plastic material with an open top 22 is secured atwise by heat sealing its edge 23 to the plate adjacent the left hand top corner, with its open end opening upwardly. A set of eye-glasses 24 is shown supported in the holder 20.
At the top right hand corner, a bill fold 26 of plastic is shown supported ilatwise over the opening 19 in the plate 12, with its open end and closure strap 28 positioned to the right and opening toward the right hand edge of the plate.
Between the holder 20 and bill fold 26, there is a small plastic change purse 30 secured flatwise to the front of the plate over the opening 21 in the plate 12, the bill fold opening upwardly.
Below the holder 2t), purse 30 and bill fold 26, a plastic envelope or bag 32 is secured to the front of the plate flatwise by heat sealing the edge 34 thereof to the plate 12. The envelope has a closure ilat 36 which opens upwardly to afford access to the interior of the envelope. The envelope 32 occupies most of the lower area of the front of the plate.
A number of containers are shown mounted and supported on the rear 16 of the plate in spaced relation. For example, an elongated handbag 36, rectangular in configuration, is secured to the rear across the top thereof over the openings 19 and 21 in the plate 12 and occupies the major area of the top portion. The handbag is provided with a zipper closure 38 actuated by a slider 49. The body of the handbag bulges forwardly -through the openings 19 and 21 in the plate 12 and is heat sealed to the portions of the bill fold 26 and small change purse 30 that bulge rearwardly against the handbag as shown in FIG. 3.
Below and disposed parallel to the handbag 36, there is an elongated rec-tangular shaped plastic holder 42 for a pen and pencil set or similar items and provided with a closure flap 44. The holder is disposed flatwise with its long sides parallel to the handbag 36 and heat sealed to the plate 12.
Another plastic small change pocketbook 46 is fastened to the rear in atwise condition to the right of the holder 42, with its open end opening upwardly, and its side edges heat `sealed to the plate 12.
A key holder 48 in the form of a wraparound fabric lbody is secured to the rear by heat sealing the upper edge thereof to the plate 12 below the left hand end of the holder 42, Ithe body opening to the right as viewed in FIG. 2.
Below the small-change pocketbook 46, there is Ia plastic comb case 50 secured to the rear surface of the plate by heat sealing the end edges thereof -to the plate. The comb case is shown opening downwardly and as supporting a comb 52 by means of a closure strap 54.
Between the key case 48 and comb case 50, -a small address ibook 56 is -secured to the rear surface of the plate -by heat sealing its edges to the plate. The book opening to the right as viewed in FIG. 2.
An elongated flexible handle 60 is secured at its ends to the top edge of the plate 12 by means of metal rivets 62 centrally of the top edge. The handle may be grasped by the hand of the user for carrying the carry-all support around by hand, or the handle may be slung over the shoulder of the user.
The modified form of carry-all support 10 shown in FIG. 4 differs from the form of carry-al1 support 10 in that the body thereof instead of tbeing plate-like and of uniform thickness, is triangular in crossssection providing a broad base 64 upon which the body may Ibe supported upon a flat supporting surface.
Furthermore, an elastic band or loop 66 has one end pivotally secured to the body adjacent the right hand top corner as indicated at 68 for supporting umbrellas and the like.
In all other respects, the carry-all support 10 is similar to the support 10` and similar reference numerals are used to indicate similar parts.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure lby United States Letters Patent 1s:
