I Application filed May 25, 1908. Serial No. 434,797.
To all whom it may concern: 7
Be it known that I, CHARLES A. HORNIG, residing in-Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have invented new and useful Improvements, in Kitchen Sup ly-Cabinets, of which the following is a escription, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which are a part of this specification.
This invention has for its object to provide a cabinet for containing various domestic supplies especially those re uired for cooking, which will safely store t em against injoljry and render them conveniently accessi- Another object of the. invention is to perfect details of construction of such supply cabinets, whereby they may be made compact and conveniently positioned upon a wall or beneath a shelf or similar location, the several rece tacles being arranged in alinement being adapted to swing forward tion where its contents may be accessible.
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the supply cabinet herein claimed, its parts and combinations of parts and all equivalents.
Referring to the accompanying drawings in which like characters ofreference indicate the same parts in the several views; Figure 1 is a front elevation of a su ply cabinet constructed in accordance wit this invention, one of the receptacles and other arts being sectioned; Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof with one receptacle drawn forward in a position to have its contents removed, a portion of the top frame being broken away to show a receptacle beneath; Fig. 3 is a sectional end elevation thereof; and, Fig. 4 is a sectional plan view of one of the receptacles.
In these drawings, 10 represents a top frame which is referably a light wooden strip capable of being secured to the under side of a shelf or other projection by means of screws 11, there being double brackets 12 at its ends likewise adapted for screws 13 to secure the device to a wall or other vertical support. The lower forwardly projectin ends of the double brackets 12 are connecte by a bottom frame 14, which as here shown constitutes an angle iron strip.
A series of swinging frames 15, with their ends bent to lie horizontal, are pivotally connected between the bottom frame and the top frame, their upper ends being connected by screws lfi-threaded into the wooden strip 10 and their lower ends being connected by rivets 17 with the angle iron strip14. The swinging frames 15 are preferably made of band iron and each supportsa air of sheet metal rings or bands 18 by havlng the ends of the stripsforming said rings pass through slots therein and bent over thereagainst as shown in Fig. 4. Receptacles 1 9 of glass or other desirable material, preferably of the cylindrical shape as shown, are fitted in the pairs of rings 18, being held in position therein by the engagement of flanges 20 at their top ends with the upper rings.
One of the rings 18 may be provided with a knob 21 or other suitable handle by means of which the frame 15 and the receptacle supported thereby may be swung upon its pivotal connections with the top and. bottom frames around the adjacent receptacle, the pivotal points for the-frame of each receptacle being preferably in the line of the center of the adjacent receptacle when the latter is in its normal position. The positioning of the knobs or handles 21 may be such that they constitute stops for limiting the forward movement of the adjacent rece tacle by engaging the ring or frame thereo as shown in- Figs. 2 and 3. Each receptacle 19 is desirablyprovided with a removable cover plate 22, which may be of metal or other material and is preferably let into a recess around the mouth of the receptacle to avoid occupying space above it, an object being to bring the mouth of the rece tacle as close to the top frame 10 as possib e.-
In use the device may be attached by the screws 11 beneath a shelf in a position where it will be out of the way and still be convenient, the forward movement of the receptacles serving to bring them out beyond the shelf where their contents may be easily reached, or the device may be attached to a wall by the screws 13 in the double brackets 12, when the upper frame 10 becomes a cover for the rece tacles when closed to shield them from ust and to protect them from injury. In some locations it may be possible to attach the device both above and at the rear.
In the receptacles may be kept the materials required for cooking, such as sugar, flour, salt and the like, and when the receptacles are made of glass the quantity of such materials is readily seen, so that the supply may be replenished as needed. With the materiv als thus grouped together they are more convenient and accessible than when stored separately, it being only necessary to swing outwardly that frame which supports the receptacle containing the material desired when some of the material may be removed and the receptacle quickly and easily restored to its normal position. By means of the invention also the receptacles are kept in order and are prevented from accidental injury, being permanently mounted in place and only requiring to be swung from one position to another to change them from their normal protected position to their position for use.
The receptacles may be removed when desired for cleaning by slipping them out of their rings 18, but it is not necessary to remove them for filling, as they may be filled when in the extended position.
The construction of the swinging frames and their connection with the rings 18 results in the receptacles being rigidly supported against tilting in either position thereof.
Obviously, while principally designed for holding materials for cooking and for domestic use, the device is capable in different sizes to serve for various other purposes without de arting from the invention.
What I c aim as my invention is 1. A supply cabinet, comprising a supporting frame with end pieces and top and bottom strips connecting the upper and lower ends of the end pieces, swinging frames piv-- otally connected to the top and bottom strips, and receptacles mounted on the swinging frames, each receptacle being located between the pivotal connections for the adj acent receptacle,
2. A' supply cabinet, comprising a supporting frame with double end brackets and a top board connecting the upper ends of the end brackets and an angle iron strip connecting the lower ends of the double brackets, swinging frames pivotally connected to the top board and to the angle iron strip, and receptacles mounted on the swinging frames, each receptacle being located between the )ivotal connections for the adjacent receptacle.
3. A supply cabinet, comprising a supporting frame with double end brackets and a top board connecting the upper ends of the double brackets and an angle iron strip connecting the lower ends of the double brackets, swinging frames pivotally connected to the top board and to the angle iron strip, a pair of metal rings mounted on each of the swinging frames by having their ends pass through slots of said swinging frames and turned over thereon, and receptacles fitting in the pairs of rings, each receptacle being normally located between the pivotal connections for the adj acent receptacle.
4. A supply cabinet, comprising a support ing frame with double end brackets and a top board connecting the upper ends of the double brackets and an angle iron strip connecting the lower ends of the double brackets, swinging frames pivotally connected to the top board and to the angle iron strip, a pair of metal rings mounted on each of the swinging frames by having their ends pass through slots of said swinging frames and turned over thereon, receptacles fitting in the pairs of rings, each receptacle being normally located between the pivotal connections for the adj acent receptacle, and knobs on one of the rings for each receptacle by which the receptacle may be swung forwardly and adapted to form a stop for limiting the swing of the adjacent receptacle.
In testimony whereof, I afiix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
