Application June 7, 1948, Serial No. 31,5ß9l
6 Claims. (Cl. 20G-1.9.5)
This invention relates to a very practical, use»
ful and novel ash receiver, which in use gener
ally is applied at the front of the driving corn
partment of an automobile, on the dash thereof,
usual-1y', and in which ashes and other refuse of
smoking is adapted to be placed, having safe-l
guards against such ashes or other refuse escap
ing, while any burning tobacco placed within
the ash receiver is rendered ineiiective against
danger of fire.ì the structure being of an eco
nomical and particularly easy and readily oper
ated character.
It is an object and purposer of
the present invention to provide an ash receiver
of the> kind stated, which is in a closed position
at all times except upon a desired withdrawal
thereof, and such withdrawing is quickly and
easily effected for- moving the ash receiver- to re~
ceive ashes and the like, or removal thereof at any
time for getting rid of the refuse contents thereof.
An understanding of the invention may be
had from the following description, taken in
connection with the accompanying drawing, in
the back and having a vertical leg extending
downwardly received and held by tongues struck
from said back, and having a forwardly and up
wardly inclined section within the- receptacle, the
upper end portion of which is of a convex form
and reaches generally to the plane> of the upper
edges of said receptacle',
A cover I2 is formed from a plate of flat metal
with strengthening and reinforcing ñanges I3-î at
itsY longitudinal edges and ~iront end. At its rear
end it is provided with hinge> rolls to cooperate
with other hingey rolls at the> upper end of the
back I8, through which a hinge' pin is received
for a hinge connectionl at I6' of the cover tothe
back of the receptacle.
The cover between its sides and toward its
hinged end has two upwardly extending rounded
projections I5 pressed therefrom and imme
diately in front thereof an upwardly extending
cooperating stop I6. In front of the _stop I6 the
