To ALL WHoM 1T MAY:continent:A

Be it known that I, HENRY W. EASTMAN, of the city and county of Baltimore, State of Maryland, have invented a new and improved Toilet-Attachment for Bureaus; and do hereby declare 'that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction andl operation of the same, refe-rence being had to the annexed drawing, (making a. part of this specification,) in which my invention is represented by a perspective view.`

This invention is a neat and ornamental attachment for bureaus, which serves the purpose of n support for holding and adjusting the mirror, while it furnishes a convenient receptacle forfcombs, brushes,iperfumery, eine., &c. l

A In the drawing, A represents the bureau, and B a neat upright cabinet, resting on the top of the bureau, supported on its flanks by brackets, b b, properly ornamented with mouldings,'c c, and provided with shelves, s s.

D is a hinged frame, which opens and closes upon the front side ot 'the cabinet, like a door, and has a lock, l, by which it can be securely fastened when shut. v

M is a mirror, hinged at its bottom to the bottom cf the frame, as shown at m m, so as to open outward at the top, in the manner represented in the drawing, and closing into the frame D, whenshut, so as to form, with `the frame, a door to the cabinet.

At its top it is provided with an adjusting-rod, r, by which it can be fixed at any required inclination to the frame, and, as the latter turns on its side hinges, can assume a variety of angles with the front of the bureau, so as to accommodate'itself to the position ofthe person using it. A drawer, Gr, may be provided under the door, in the cabinet.

The cabinet forms a convenient receptacle for the various articles of the toilet.

The whole device is a neat and ornamental appur-tenance, which can be applied to any bureau.

Having thus described my invention, what I claimas new, and desire to Secure by Letters Patent, is

The toilet-attachment for bureaus above described, consisting substantially of the upright cabinet B, provided with horizontal shelves s, the frame D swinging on side hinges, and the mirror M, hinged to the frame D, and provided with au adjusting-rod or cord, r, the whole operating together in the manner and for .thepurposes specified. i A
