SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 387,922, dated August 14-, 1888.

Application filed April 16, 1838.

Serial No. 270.81 1. (No model.)

To aZZ whom, it may concern.-

Be it known that I, GEORGE W. SouooLnY, of Alliance, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in aGoinbined ash-Stand and Bracket; and I do hereby declare the following to he a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use it, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, which forms part of this spcci lication.

My invention relates to an improvement in a combined wash-stand and bracket; and it consists in, first, the combination of a suitable base or support, which is to be placed against the walhwith a casting or forging provided with a projecting shoulder and bearings,with thehoop or band which supports the basin, and which has pivots formed upon its ends. so as to catch in the bearings, and which can be raised into a vertical position, seas to be out ofthe way, and lowered into a horizontal one, so as to receive the basin; second, the combination, with the vertical hose orsupport, ol a rod or wire which isleosely attached near the upper end of the support, and which is curved or bent at its center, so as to form a stop, and has its ends turned outward, so as to form supports for towels and other such an ticles, as will be more Fully described herein after.

The object of my invention is to produce a combined wash-stand and bracket which is placed against the wall, and in which the basi n and towel-holdcrs are pivoted, so that they can be turned up out of the way when not wanted, and thus not take up any appreciable room.

The accouipanyi n drawi ng; rep rese nls a perspectiveol' a device which embodies my invention.

A represents the base orsupport, which is to be attached to the wall, and to which the other parts are secured. This base will be made just long enough to answer the purpose .re quircd, and does not have its lower end appreach near to the liner. Secured to thelower end of this base or support A is the castingor forging B, of any suitable shape, and which is provided with thehorizontal shoulder C, which extends outward any desired distance. 15x tending horizontally from the top of this shoulder are the bearings I), through which the pivots F upon the basilrholder G extend. This shoulder G forms a rigid support for the basin holder when it in a horizontal position.

The basin-holder G is formed from a rod or wire which is formed into a circle, and which has its two ends F turned outward in a line with each other, so as to form pivots upon which the basin-holder. turns. The rod or wire being; made ol' elastic metal, the ends of the pivots F spring apart as soon as they enter into the bearings D, and thus hold the basin-holder G- sccurely in position. This ring or basin-holder turns freely upon thepivets F, so that when it is not needed it can be turned upward against the [ace of the support A, and when needed can beturncd.iutoaherizontal position, being supported by the shoulder 0. While in a horizontal position a basin of any kind can be placed inside of the ring G, and supported in position while being used.

Loosely attached to the upper end of the support A, by the staples TV is the rod l'Lwhich has its central portion, 5, curved, so as to form a stop, and its ends 0 bent at an angle, so as to form holders for towels and othersuch arti oles. This rod, being loosely held by the sta ples,can partially revolve when turned,so that when the ends 0 extend horizontally outward the curved part J strikes against the face of the support A, and not only prevents the rod from turning any farther, but holds the red in this position. When the rod is turned so that its ends 4) extend upward, this curved part J projects horizontally outward. When the red is needed to hang towels or other articles upon, the rod is turned so as to bring its ends in a horizontal position, and then articles of different kinds can be hung upon them.

it will be seen that when the rod H is turned so that its ends project upward, and thebasinholder G is closed against the support A, the whole wash-stand and bracket take up no ap preciablc IOOlll, and hence is specially adapted for those places where space is desirable. Should it not be desired to attach the casting to the support A, it may be attached directly to the side of the wall, and thus be used entirely independent oi the red ll.

Having; thus described my invention, I claini- 1. The combination of the support, the castcurved portion, J, at its center, and its ends 0 [0 ing or forging B, secured thereto and proturned outward, substantially as set forth. vided with the horizontal shoulder O, and the In testimony whereof I affix my signature in bearings D,Witl1 the basin-ho1der, formed from presence of two Witnesses.

5 a metallic rod which has its ends F turned outward, so as to catch in the bearings, sub- GEORGE SCHOOLEY' stantially as shown. Witnesses:

2. The combination ofasupport, A,with the JNO. WV. ORAINE,

holding devices I, and the rod H, having a F. E. HARIZELL.
