CARRIE E. CARLEY, OF WINCHESTER, KANSAS.
STAMP AND ENVELOP MOISTENER.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CARRIE E. CARLEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at WVinchester, in the county of Jefferson and State of Kansas, have invented a new and useful Stamp and Envelop Moistener, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention appertains to a stamp and envelop moistener, and aims to provide a novel, improved and useful article of that character.
It is the object of the present invention to provide a device of the character indicated which shall be comparatively simple, compact and inexpensive in construction, and which shall embody a unique stamp and envelop moistener.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as thedescription proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of what is claimed without depart ing from the spirit of the invention.
The invention has been illustrated in its preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a longitudinal central section of the device. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the moistener inverted or in position for use.
In carrying out the invention, reference being had in detail to the drawing, there is provided a receptacle or bottle holder 4 with its lower end closed and its upper end open. The receptacle 4 receives the bottle or water container 5, which fits snugly therein, and a cap 6 is provided for the bottle holder 4, the cap telescoping into the open end of the bottle holder. The cap 6 is provided with an opening 7 adj o-ining which the neck or mouth of the bottle is disposed, and a sponge or other wadding of absorbent material 8 is disposed within the cap and is pressed slightly outward through the opening 7. A cork or stopper 9 is provided for the bottle, and carries a tube 10. The tube 10 passes through the cork or stopper 9 and terminates at a desirable point within the bottle 5. A wick, string or other similar member 11 passes through the tube 10 and is connected at one end to the sponge 8, the other or free end terminating within the bottle 5.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed March 17, 1913.
Patented Jan. 20, 1914. Serial No. 754,927.
The foregoing parts constitute the moistener proper, and in connection therewith there is provided a combined closure for the moistener and stamp holder. This closure and stamp holder embodies an open-ended shell or sleeve 12 having a central partition 13, secured therein, so that one end of the shell or sleeve 12 may he slipped or telescoped over the upper end of the bottle holder 4 to inclose the sponge or moistening element 8. The upper end ofthe shell or sleeve provided a stamp holding compartment 1 1, in which a suitable quantity or variety of stamps may be held, or which may be employed for holding other articles as well. The stamp compartment 14 is closed by a cap 15 fitting over the upper or outer end of theshell or sleeve 12.
The device as a whole is comparatively simple and compact, the same being elongated in form and preferably of elliptical cross section so as to fit snugly within the vest pocket, handbag or the like. The device may also be inexpensively manufactured, it being noted that the bottle holder, the shell, and the two caps may all be suitably fashioned from sheet metal. The sheet metal parts may also be plated, oxidized or other- 7 wise finished for purpose of wear and appearance.
In use, as above indicated, the compartment 14 may be employed for holding stamps, access being had into the said compartment by removing the cap 15 so that the stamps may be inserted and withdrawn without interfering with the moistener. The lower end of the shell or sleeve 12 normally closes the moistener, so as to prevent the escape of moisture. It is to be understood, of
course, that the bottle 5 may be filled or partially filled so that when the shell or sleeve 12 is withdrawn from the bottle holder-4, the sponge or moistening element 8 will be exposed. The bottle holder 4L may then be manipulated so that the sponge 8, or rather of the exposed portion thereof, may be employed for moistening the stamps, envelops or the like, the water finding its way to the sponge 8 by capillary action, which is assisted by the gravitation of the water down the tube 10 when the moistener is inverted.
The respective parts may be readily assembled and separated as circumstances necessitate, and if desired, the shell or sleeve 12 may be reversed.
Having thus described the invention, What over the mouth of the holder to normally inis claimed as new is close the cap.
In a moistener, a bottle holder, a cap In testimony that I claim the foregoing slipped into the mouth thereof and having as my own, I have hereto affixed my signaan opening ii-lhereip, 2i sponge Within the cap ture in the presence of tWo Witnesses.
