To aZZ whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, HERMAN Tnons'nnnn,

. a citizen of the United States, residing at Kirkwood, in the county of St. Louis City, and State of Missouri, have invented new and useful. Improvements in Buckets, of

which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to buckets, more particularly to paint buckets, and its primary object is the provision of a paint bucket in which two or more differently colored paints can be carried at thesame time, the inven- Eon comprehending separable bucket secons. A further object of my invention is the provision of a frame adapted to receive the bucket sections, said frame being preferably constructed of wire.

. A still .further object of my invention is the provision of a ,paint bucket which is simple, durable and eflicient, and which can be manufactured and sold at a comparatively low cost.

. VVith the above and other objects in View, the invention consists in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts I hereinafter fully described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective view-of a paint bucket constructed in accordance withmy invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the frame of the bucket' and Fig. 3 is a perspectiveview of one o the bucketsections. -Referr1ng to the drawing by reference numerals, l designatesthe bucket. sections,

section to adapt them for application to a frame 2, the straight walls of the bucket sections lying in contact when the bucket sections are within the frame. One or both of' the bucket sections may be readily and quickly removed from the frame'2.

The frame 2 is preferably constructed of wire, andcomprises a bottom hoop 3, aftop hoop 4, sidebars 5i which secure'the' hoops in relatively space relation.- The frame 2 also comprises a supporting bar 6, which is adapted to support the bucket sections and; which is secured to and extends diametric--, ally of the bottom hoop 3, and a bail 7 which is pivotally mounted upon the top-hoop 4.

The hoops 3 and 4, side bars 5 and sup-,

porting bar Glare constructed of a single length of wire.

In forming the frame, the wire is first bent to provide the top hoop 4, then bent at right angles with relatlon' to the plane thereof to provide one of the side, bars 5, then bent to provide 'tlie-hoop' 3, which is disposed at right angles with relation to the plane of the said side bar 5 and in parallel relation to the hoop 4, then passed about the lower end of the side bar 5, then extended diametrically of the hoop 3 to provide the supporting bar 6, then coiled about the hoop 3, as at 8, and thence extended in the direction of the hoop 4 to provide the other side bar 5, the end of this side bar being bent about the hoop 3, as at 9. The extremity of the hoop 4 is bent about the upper end of one end of the side bars 5, as at 10, and said hoop is formed to rovide' upstanding ears 11 on which the ball 7 is pivotally secured by having its ends. looped about them, as at-12.
