Description

Dec. 10, 1929. w. P. BEILING SMOKERS ASH RECEP'I'ACLE Filed Jan. 17, 192'! ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 10, 1929 UNITED STATES WINNA P. BEILING, OF OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA SMOKER S ASH BECEPTACLE Application filed January 17, 1927. Serial No. 161,582.

My invention relates to cigar and cigarette ash receptacles, and is directed especially to the manner of supporting the receptacle conveniently beside the smoker.

The objects of my invention are to provide an ash tray which is readily portable and yet not likely to be upset, which is pleasingly ornamental, and which may be readily maintained in a position convenient to the smoker and yet out of the way of others.

Further objects of my invention reside in the structural preferences to be described, and will become apparent as the description proceeds.

Other and ancillary objects may be sug gested in this manner or in the use of the article itself. Certain objects of my invention may be realized with the use of less than all its advantageou features or with modifications within its purview, and I desire not to be circumscribed beyond the limits of the claims finally determining my invention.

Referring to the drawings: Figure l is a perspective View of my improved ash receptacle in normal position over the arm of a chair. Fig. 2 is a detached perspective view of the device with its inner ash receptacle removed. Fig. 3 is a vertical cross-section of the device; and Fig. 4 is a similar section of a modified form thereof.

A rectangular inner ash receptacle 2, of metal, glass or other suitable material, is removably nested within an outer receptacle 4, preferably of metal. Ash trays of this type are usually set on top of a supporting surface, but I depart from this practice by providing a strap by which the receptacle is suspended. Secured to one of the side walls of the receptacle 4 by solder or other means, is a metal strap 6, preferably of brass or other flexible semiresilient material, which rises vertically from the receptacle and is bent over backwards to form a loop 8, adapted, as shown in'Fig. 1 to embrace the arm 9 of a chair to support the receptacle. In general, the resilience of the structure will be relied upon to hold the strap in position, but the end of the strap is enlarged-at 10 to form a 50 counterweight which would be sufiicient to counterbalance the weight of the receptacle to hold it in position.

A cloth covering 12, 14, 16 encases the metal strap and the outside of the receptacle. Though intended primarily for decorative purposes and to prevent scratching or cutting fine furniture, this cloth covering has an added functional utility. It is a friction coating which helps to hold the strap against sliding displacement on plush and certain other furniture.

Fig. 4 illustrates a modification in which the friction coating and counterweight alone are relied upon to hold the receptacle. The metal strap is omitted'in this design, except for a sh rt vertical backing-piece 18 integral with the rear side wall of the outer receptacle 4. This backing piece rests against the surface of the furniture and holds the receptacle against tipping. The cloth coating in this modification, as in the device aforedescribed, may be a single strip 12, 14, 16' with one end encasing the outside of the receptacle, and the other end secured to the top front of the backing-piece 18. The flexible portions 14, 16, remote from the receptacle, may be sewed together excepting for a small loop at the fold 20. A metal counter-weight 10 is retained within this fold. It is advisable in both forms of device to enlarge the end of the strap remote from the receptacle, as illustrated in the drawings, so that an interference action may be called upon to further insure the device against accidental displacement. The sideward-extending ears 22, of this enlargement, as well as its thickness may be utilized to engage in obstruction relation under and between adjacent portions of furniture.

21 is simply an embroidered decorative design of any character to enhance the appearance of the article, and 22 may be gold lace or the like to add to its attractiveness.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is the following:

1. A device of the character described comprising a member formed of material which is pliable and sufliciently resilient to be selfsustaining of any shape into which it might be bent, said member being adapted to be bent partially around the arm of a chair or other article of furniture so as to resiliently engage the arm with sufiicient firmness to prevent the member from slipping from the arm,.and a cigar ash receptacle removably carried by said member at an end thereof and disposed below the level of the arm.

2. A device of the character described comprising a member formed of material which is pliable and sufficiently resilient to be selfsustaining of any shape into which it might be bent, said member being adapted to be bent partially around the arm of a chair or other article of furniture so as to resiliently engage I the arm with sufficient firmness to prevent the member from slipping from the arm, a cigar ash receptacle carried by said member at an end thereof and disposed below the level of the arm, and a pliable non-metallic sheath enshrouding the member.

3. A device of the character described comprising a member formed of material which is pliable and sufiiciently resilient to be selfsustaining of any shape into which it might be berit, said member being adapted to be bent partially around the arm of a chair or other article of furniture so as to resiliently engage the arm, with suf licient firmness to prevent the member from slipping from the arm, a cigar ash receptacle removably carried by said member at an end thereof and disposed below the level of the arm, and counterweight means at the other end of said member and generally opposite said receptacle.

' In testimony whereof, I afiix my signature.

WINNA P. BEILINGr.
