SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 723,964, dated March 31, 1903. Application filed December 12, 1901. Serial No. 85,648. (No model.)

To aZZ whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, ANDREW K. WILSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Kitchen-Cabinets, of which the following is a specification.

Figure l is a perspective view of my improved cabinet. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same on the line 2 2, Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section of the same on the line 3 3, Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of a receptacle-holder. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective View of a part of the door hinged to the front of the base of` the cabinet, showing the clamping members for holding the rolling-pin; and Fig. 6 is a detail side view of a cover for one of the receptacles carried by the cabinet.

6 represents a cabinet rectangular in shape and suitably ornamented,havinga base 7 and a series of shelves or partitions 8, said partitions extending longitudinally of the cabinet from side to side and from front to back therein, the base 7 extending beyond the sides of the cabinet, as at 9 and l0.

11 is a door hinged to the front of the base and folding up under the lowermost shelf of the cabinet, thereby forming a receptacle 12, in which any desired article may be stored. This door is provided on its inner face with two clamping members 13, adapted to hold a rolling-pin 14, (shown in dotted lines in Fig. 5,) the handles of said pin fitting within the spring clamping members 13.

15 is a circular base provided with an odset or integral lug 16, extending from one side thereof,- said lug being provided with a perforation 17.

18 represents standards secured to and projecting upward from the base l5, the upper ends of which are, connected by means of a circular wire ring 19. This base 15 is secured to one of the shelves by means of a pivot-pin 20, extending through the perforations 17 in the lugs 16, the location of the pivot being near the front edge of the shelves, as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 3. It will be seen in Fig. 1 thatI provide a series of six of tb ese bases, there being three secured to each of two shelves, and said bases serve as holders for receptacles 21, adapted to contain different articles for use in the kitchen, the receptacles beingheld upon the base by meansofthe standards 1S and the connecting-ring 19. The locat-ion of the pivot on the bases l5 is such that any one of them may be swung outward, so as to bring the receptacle in a position in advance of the front of the shelves, thereby enabling one to remove the receptacle entirely from the shelf in order that the con tenis thereof may be utilized. Above the shelves containing the said bases I hinge two doors 22 between the uppermost shelves of the cabinet, thereby forming a closed compartment between said shelves.

23 is a strip provided with aseries of circular openings 24, said strip being secured between the sides 0f the cabinet a suitable distance above the uppermost shelf 8.

25 is a strip having a series of openings 26, said strip being secured between the sides of the ca binet in a position above and back of d the shelf 23.

27 is a base secured immediately below the strip 25, which serves as a support for bottles, dac., that are placed in the openings 26 of the shelves 25,-the top shelf 8 forming a base for the strip 23.

' 28 is a shelf or bracket secured on one side of the cabinet near the top thereof.

29 isa piece of suitable material secured in position as a. back to the projecting end 9 of the base 7 on one side of the cabinet.

30 is a receptacle adapted to be held upon the bracket formed by the back 29 and the projecting end 9 of the base7 by means of the stay 3l, which is composed of a piece of metal bentto a suitable curvature.

32 is a cover hinged at 33 to one side of the cabinet above the projecting end 9 of the base 7, and provided with a depending block 34, which enters and serves as a stopper or closure for the top of the receptacle 30.

35 -is a flour-binv secured to one side of the cabinet, within which is secured at the bottom a suitable sieve 36.and an agitator 37, which coperates with said sieve in the operation of sieving flour into the drawer 37, secured in the bottom of the receptacle 35. 38 is a hinged top secured upon said receptacle 35.

39 is a supplemental back which is spaced a suitable distance from the back 40 of the IOO cabinet by means of the blocks 41 the top and the rollers 42 at thebottom, said rollers being journaled in the back 40 and the supplemental back 39, said supplemental back forminga compartment within which a breadboard 43 may be housed, the rollers facilitating the Withdrawal from and placing the bread-board in the said compartn'ient.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new therein, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. The combination with a kitchen-cabinet comprising a series of shelves, of receptacleholders, and receptacles removably carried by said holders, each of said holders comprising a circular base adapted to rest Hat upon one of said shelves, a projection on the periphery ot' said base and provided with a suitable perforation, standards projecting upwardly from said base, a ring connecting the upper ends of said standards, anda pin passing through said perforation upon which said base is pivoted to said shelf near the outer edge thereof.

2. A kirchen-cabinet cernprsing frame having a base extending beyond the sides thereof, and forming a bracket at one end, forming a base fora flour-compartment at the other end, and forming a bottom for a receptacle in the middle thereof, a series of shelves above said receptacle, the lower shelf forming a top for said receptacle, a door hinged to said base and closing said receptacle, receptacleholders pivoted to said shelves, the shelves above said holders acting as covers for the receptacles carried by the holders, compartments above said shelves, hinged doors closing the same, steps of perforated receptacle-holding stri ps above said compartments, the top of said compartments acting 4o as a support for the bases of the receptacles carried by the lowermost of said strips, and a shelf beneath the uppermost of said strips, to support the receptacles carried thereby.

The foregoing specification signed this 3d day of December, 1901.
