APPLICATION FILED 11116.17, 190s.



attoznur No. 889,741. PATENTED JUNE 2, 1908. F. ADDITON.






Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 2, 1908.

Application filed. August 17, 1906. Serial No. 331,046.

To all whom it may concern: a

Be it known that I, FORREST ADnIToN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Flowery Branch, in the county of Hall and State of Georgia, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a Folding Safe, of

which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a folding knock down'safe or cupboard and the object of the invention is an article of furniture of this kind which can be knocked down or folded.

for convenience in shipment.

The invention consists of the novel features of construction hereinafter fully set forth, pointed out in the claims and shown in the accompanying drawings, in which,

Figure,1 is a pers ective view of my safe. Fig. 2 is a view of t e safe partially folded. Fig. 3 is a view of the safe folded. Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional view through a portion of the folded safe. Fig. 5 is a vertical section through the safe set up ready for use. Fig. 6 is a plan view with the top removed. Fig. 7 is an inverted perspective view of the top., Fig. 8 is a section on the line 8-8 of Fi 5'.

in constructing my safe I form the ends A in two vertical sections hinged together as shown at A. The hinges A are upon the outside of the safe and the ends Aare hinged upon the inside by hinges B to the back and front of the safe respectively.

The safe is provided with removable shelves D, and front doors C and the drawer C. The shelves D and the guide ways for" the drawer C may be secured in place by an of the many common means ofsecuringsuc devices. The top E is provided upon its under face with a rib E and u on its front marginal portion with a short rib E spaced from the rib E. When the to is in place the rib E which extends aroun three sides of the top fits over the front and ends of the safe and the u per front edge also rests between the rib and the adjacent art of the rib E When the safe is to be s ip ed the 'ends can'be folded inwardly upon eac other as shown in Figs. 2, 3 and 4 thus making a very compact package and when set up in use the top E, shelves and drawer will serve to lock the ends A in their normal position and make the entire device rigid.

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

A folding safe consisting of a back formed in one piece, sides, each side being formed in two pieces, and hinged to fall inwardly upon the back and upon themselves, a front formed in one piece and bin ed to the sides, said front being cut out at t e top and bottom, and cut out transversely across its center, doors hinged in the top and bottom cut out portions, and a drawer adapted to slide through the central cut out portion.
