LIQUID-AEPLYING s'IoPPE'EFoE BOTTLES.

Specification df Lettersjtent.` Patented Dhu', 26, 1912;

Appiicatin alga April e', i911.Y serial No. 619,293.

To allwhom tmay concern: l

Be it known that I, FREDEEI'CKH. Hires?, DALE, a citizen of the UnitedStates: residing,r at- Roanoke, in the county of Roanoke and State of Virginia, have invented cer-v Liquid-Applyi'ng Stoppers for Bottles; and I do declarethe following to be a. fullnclear, and exact description of the inventiomsuch as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make .and use `the same. t

This invention relates to improvements in liquid applying Stoppers for bottles.

The object ot the invention is to provide a. stopper of this character having an improved means for fastening the same to the mouth of the bottle and means for fastening a liquid applying sponge thereto.l whereby the liquid from the bottle may be freely discharged onto the sponge andthe latter thus Saturated with the liquid.

In devices ot this kind now in `feneral use, it is almost invariably the case that the sponge rests closely upon the top of the cork and the latter is held in the mouth of the bottle only by its usual expansion. The former I find objectionable because when this device is used tor applying:v liquid blacking. to shoes. for instance, pressure on the sponge soon causes the blacking' to ooze out over the cork. whence it runs down the bottle and eventually soils the hand ot the operator. The latter I find objectionable also` because in the act of wiping the sponge across the shoe or other object treated. the cork is often loosened within the mouth of the bottle it held therein only by its usual friction, with the result that it comes out ot place and the liquid is spilled.

With this and other objects in view. the invention consists of certain novel features of construction.` combination and arrange4 ment of parts as Will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claim. i

In the accompanvinglr drawings: Figure 1 a central vertical section through the upper endiof a bottle showing the invention applied thereto: Fig. :2 is a detail perspective view of the combined cap and sponge holder of the device showing the position of the parts before bcingrapplied: Fig. 3 is a .similar view of the upper end :lr mouth of the the bottle as shown.

bottlehowing the manner in which the sagmei-ls constructed to receive the device.

My improved liquid applying stopper;l comprises acombined sponge holder 1, an`

attachingdevice 2 and a discharge tube 3a said partsI beingr preferably formed integral or constructed from one piece oi' metal. The sponge holder 1 comprises a hemispherical or cup shaped body portion having on its upper edge a plurality of prongsor teeth At which are adapted to be turned inwardly and forced into engagement with the sponge4 5 or other material provided for applying the liquid. The sponge holding cup 1 is connected by a shortneck G to the attaching device@ comprising a circular plate -or disk Iwhich preferably decreases in thickness from the central portion toward its outer edge and has formed on its outer edge an annular downwardly extending,Ir attaching fia'nge 7 which when the device is applied to the bottle is adapted to be turned inwardly and clenched into engagement with an an nular rib or bead tl formed on the upper end or mouth of the bottle.

In the center of the inner side of the disk 2 is formed the liquid dischargfingr tube 3 the opening in which is contiliut-ul up through the neck 6 and con'nnunicates with the sponge holding cup 1. ln the center of the inner portion of tte .sponge is formed a cavity or recess 9 into which the liquid from the discharge tube passes` and which provides an increased area for absorbing or taking up the liquid discharged from the tube thus more quickly saturatingr the sponge. On the tube 3 is arranged a cork or other torm of stopper 10 which is adapted to closely fit and to be forced into the mouth of the bottle thus preventing any discharge ot the Huid therefrom except through thc tuhc B. The cork or stopper 10 is tirlnly secured in place on the tube 3 by an annular flange 1l formed on the. inner end of the tube and en gaging the inner end of thc stopper as shown.

In order to prevent the sponge from drying out when not4 in use l. provide au air tight cap or casing l2 which is prct'crahly of cylindrical form and is provided on its inner end with screw threads lil adapted to be-screwed into engagement with threads 14 formed on the outer side ot' thtl hcadof By means of the cap 12 the sponge will not only be prevented from becoming dry when not in use, but the contents of the bottle will also be prevented from evaporating, Said cap forming an air tight closure for the bottle. When it is desired to use the bottle the cap is removed andthe bottle inverted to permit the conv tents thereof to pass through the tube 3 and 4 onto the sponge or other appl ing material thus saturating the latter whereupon the liquid may be applied to the surface to be coated by the sponge, using the bottle as a handle for operating the sponge.

While my invention is primarily intended as a means for containing and applying blacking to shoes, it is obvious thatl the same may be employed for applying any liquid preparation.` v

From the foregoing description taken in connection' with the accompanying drawings, the construction and operation of the invention will be readily understood without requiring a more extended ex lanation.

Various changes in the orm, proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advan tages of the invention as delined in the ap- In a liquid applying stopper for bottlescomprising a sponge-holding cup, a plate formed on said cup provided wlth an attaching Bange whereb. it may beV attached to the neck of a bot le, a discharge tube formed on and projecting from said late, the bore of said tube being continued throu h the plate and bottom of the cup, a corl arranged on said tube, a flange on the lower end of the tube to prevent the cork from becoming detached, a sponge arranged in the cup, and attaching teeth; formed on the outer edge of the cup and adapted to be forced into said sponge.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set myhand in presence of two subscribing witnesses. s
