HANDLE AND FRAME FOR DRE-SSER SET
UTENSILS AND THE LIKE
William Steinen, South Orange, N. J.
Application December 14, 1937, Serial No. 179,642
7 Claims.
(Cl. 88-102)
The present invention relates to handles and
frames for dresser sets and the like and partic
ularly relates to handle and frame constructions
for mirrors, brushes and other articles. utilized 1n
5' connection with the toilet and dressing sets.
It is among the objects of the present inven
tion to provide an improved frame and handle
construction which may be particularly applied
to mirrors, brushes and other articles useful in
10 toilet or dresser sets, in which the mirror back
and handle will be formed o-r contained in a
frame which may be inexpensively and readily
manufactured by relatively simple dies at a high
rate of production and without the necessity of
using soldered joints or unnecessary iinishing
operations.
Another object of the present invention is to
provide an improved toilet or dresser set utensil
frame and handle construction which will be
rigid and strong, yet of inexpensive and light
construction and which, in spite of its rugged
character will be pleasing in appearance and
will be decorative and ornamental.
Other objects will be obvious or will be appar
25 ent during the course of the following speciñca.
tion.
In accomplishing the above objects, it will be
found most suitable, according to one embodi
ment of the present invention, to form the frame
30 of U or V shaped integral channel rim members
which continue without break from the frame
into the handle portion.
Preferably, these channel members are bent to
a desired polygonal or circle .contour to receive
35 the mirror or back of the brush and the backing
« plate or frame and to form the sides of the
handle.
If desired, the channel members may be split
at the top of the frame and at the end of the
40 handle and the ends thereof drawn togetherv by
suitable clips or fastening means preferably of
ornamental form.
Enclosed in and clamped at its periphery by the
channel members in the frame, in addition to- the
45 mirror or back of the brush, is a supporting plate
which may be made of metal or of heavy fibre
or cardboard stock. The plate may have an in
tegralv extension into the handle portion or it
may be provided with a rod or strip of metal spot
50 Welded or riveted to the central portion thereof,
which rod or strip of metal will extend into the
handle section.
The handle is relatively narrower than the
frame and it may be either straight or rounded
55 or bulged at its outer end. The two- channel
members closely face each other in the handle
and grip the extension of the metal or stiff paper
back plate and also reinforcing metal facing or
other members which may be desirably placed
in the body of the handle.
The present invention is particularly directed
to the manner in which said channel member
may be tightly gripped both upon the handle and
upon the mirror or brush back and the iron >or
metal backing plate without the necessity of 10
utilizing pull rods extending through the- handle
member or any other tightening means which are
designed to pull the handle and the backing
plate together by screwing up elements on or as
15
sociated with the handle member.
It is among the further objects of the present
invention to provide an improved construction
which will enable the channel membersy to be
tightly forced upon the elements contained with
in the handle and the frame without screw 20
threads, nuts, bolts or other elements, which
cause undue expense and manufacture and in
crease the cost of the assembly, and which, at the
same time, Will assure a permanent assembly
which will not tend to become disengaged or 25
loosened even though subjected to considerable
handling.
`
The present application is a continuation 1n
part of application, Serial No. 110,831, filed No
vember 14, 1936, and is continued in part in apf 30
plication, Serial` No. 192,690, ñled February 26,
1938.
In accomplishing these last mentioned objects,
it has been found most satisfactory to form the
frame either of one piece or of two pieces and to 35
assemble the handle plates, the backing plate or
the mirror or brush back therein while the chan
nel members at the throat or at the point of- con
nection between the frame and the handle will
40
be relatively loose and in untightened position.
The channel members extending from the top
of the frame to the end of the handle> should
preferably be integral and these channel or rim
members are permanently joined together at the
top of the frame and at the end of the handle.
To tighten the channel members and form a
permanent rigid connection, which will not tend
to break at the throat, a flaring throat sleeve 1s
either pressed up upon the handle from the bot« 50
tom thereof to draw the throat portions of the
channel members together, or a split sleeve is
placed around the throat and connected together.
TonguesI or tabs on the throat sleeve construc
tion are stamped into position t0 grip the frame 55

elements and assure a permanent connection
which will not loosen with usage.
In the drawing which shows some of the var
ious possible embodiments of the present invene
tion but to which the invention is by 4no means
restricted since many changes and modiñcations
may be made therein all within the scope of the"
present invention.

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the complete
10 assembly showing the portion of the frame in
section.
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view on the
line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a longitudinal sectional View of the
end of the handle upon the line 6--6 of Figure 2
and upon a somewhat enlarged scale as compared
with Figure 2.
Referring to Figure 1, the channel member A
which may be of V shape or U shape, is shown as
being formed of two symmetrical elements B
which are formed at C of oval shape to enclose a
mirror D and a backing plate E.
30
The integral extensions F form the sides of the
handle G.
rI’he ends of the frame elements B are locked
together at the top of the frame E by the ele
ment H and at the end of the handle by the ele
35 ment I.
The throat element J is positioned upon the
handle at the point of connection of the oval
frame E and the handle G.
The side elements B are normally pressed out
40 from flat brass or aluminum metal in the form
of a straight channel of U or V contour and these
channels are. then stamped out and cut toform
the frame element A.
If desired, the frame and handle elements con
45 sisting of the portions F and C may be formed in
one piece, but in the construction shown, the ele
ments are split, as indicated at I0, into two com
plementary or symmetrical elements C which are
tied together at the top of the oval frame E by
50 the element H.
The element H is provided with the tongues | I
which ñt into openings I2 in the outside face or
base I3 of the vchannels B.
Enclosed between the two portions C of the
55 frame A is the mirror D with bevelled edges I4
and the backing support plate I5 which may be
of metal, hard fiber, cardboard, and so forth.
Between the backing plate I5 and the mirror
D is the flexible material indicated diagrammat
60 ically at I6, said backing material permitting ilex
ibility and preventing direct contact between the
mirror D and backing plate I 5.
The backing plate I5 may be covered by Cellu
preferably receives a metal or ñber plate I9 which
is pressed closely against the extension I‘I by the
ñanges 2S of said channel F.
'I‘he ends of the channels F and of the strips
Il’ and I 9 are held together at the end of the
handle G by the cap I which is provided- with a
domed bottom 2| and the side elements 22 which
have the inturned tongues 24 fitting in the open
ings 25 in the bases 26 of said channels F.
It will be noted that the bottom of the cap is 10
shouldered at 2l to contact the lower ends 28 of
the elements.
When the assembly so far described is made,
the frame elements B will not as yet have been
drawn tightly upon the mirror D, the plate I5 and
the handle elements Il and I9.
As indicated by the dotted line 30 in Figure 4,
the frame elements B at the throat will extend
slightly beyond their final dimension.~
To draw in the throat portions 3| of the frame 20
elements D, the throat sleeve element J is pressed
upwardly upon the handle G.
The throat element J may be placed upon the
handle assembly before the cap I is attached or
it may be of suñicient size as to slide over the 25
cap I.
Where the handle assembly G, however, is of
bulging contour or of irregular shape, it is de
sirable to split the throat collar J at the side 62
indicated at Figure 3 and have tongues extend 30
ing therefrom into the base I8 of the channel F to
lock the throat in position.
The throat J when in position, as shown in
Figures 1 to 3, should draw the throat portions
of the frame from the dotted line position 3U to 35
the solid line position 3| to tighten the entire
structure.
To hold the throat element J permanently in
position, the tongues 32 may be turned inwardly
to extend into the openings 33 in the base I8 of 40
the channel portions C or the tab portions 35
are bent inwardly to engage the inner edge 66
of the rim or frame portions B.
'I'he sides of the throat element J are bulged,
as indicated at 36.
If desired, the tongues 32 may be omitted and
the throat portion might be held in position solely
by the inturned tab portions 35.
The construction which finally results will be
permanent and rugged, will be of relatively light .
weight and will be inexpensive to manufacture.
t will be noted that it is altogether devoid of
screw machine parts, nuts and bolts and that it
may be made entirely of stampings or shaped flat
metal elements.
Moreover, the construction is artistic, decora
tive and ornamental and the frame construction
A lends itself both to mirrors and to brushes of
varying sizes and shapes for general use.
The oval shape of the frame E may be consid 60
erably varied so that such frame E may be
square, trapasoidal, hexagonal, round, and so
forth.
