To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Martin Zinn and Arthur S. Zinn, citizens of the United States, residing at Manhattan borough, in the city, county, and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Boxes for Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
By means of this invention the parts of a safety-razor—such as casing, handle, and one or more blades—can be compactly stored and kept and handled separately as required.
This invention resides in certain features of construction set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which—
In the drawings is shown a box
The lugs or supports
The blade-box, as seen, can be entirely removed from or is not connected to the main box. If, for example, a blade is to be honed or replaced or otherwise attended to, such blade in the blade-box can be sent away or to a factory, while the razor-box, with contents, is retained in the possession of the proprietor.
The article shown in the drawings was formed of sheet metal, but of course the invention is not confined to any special material.
It is not new to make a box with a cover at the top and bottom and a partition secured in the box to divide the same into two compartments and a blade-retainer hinged in a compartment. Such device is not claimed herein.
What we claim as our invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor box provided with supporting-lugs and a cover, said lugs extending inwardly and arranged near said cover, said lugs of less width than the walls of the box, and a blade-receptacle having a cover and of a size, substantially equal to the interior of the box above the lugs, said receptacle mounted upon said lugs.
2. A safety-razor box provided with lugs or supports at varying distances from a wall of the box and a blade-box free from the razor-box and supported on the lugs.
3. A safety-razor box provided with lugs or supports located, respectively, near different sides of the box so that a blade-box thereon can be readily tipped or tilted in either direction to be grasped or removed.
In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. .
