c. w. LoEs-CH GIGARETTEQR crema HOLDER FiledAug-f so. 192s E@v f df/- 1T @L lPatented*Sepia i, 1931 1 `Lazise? ATENT ori-ics CHRSTIANVW. LOESCH, OF ST.`LOUS,IMISSURI i CIGARETTE on creen HOLDER 'Application led August 30, 1928. Serial No. 302,955.

This invention relates generally tocig arette or cigar holders', and more specifica ly to an improved cigarette or clga holder ling from the smoking of cigarettes 'and cigars to be unconiined. That is to say, heretofore insofar as I am aware, no ciga- ,15 rette or cigar holder has been produced which included means intended to prevent the scattering of ashes and sparks from the lighted end ofthe cigarette or cigar. It is very well known that ashes and sparks from lighted cigarettes and ci ars do a consider- 'able amount of damage 1n the way of soiling and burning articles of clothing, drapery, rugs, etc., `andin ettin in the eyes of persons. when the smo ing 1s being done in the open where wind may scatter ashes,

and sparks about, as-for instance, when the smoker is motoring. Also,the habitual use of cigarettes results in the nicotine contained therein staining the fingers of the' e0 smokersothat theyare quite unsightly.

The main object of the present invention therefore, is toproduce a. cigarette or cigar holder which is so constructed that -a cham- -ber is provided forthe cigarette or cigar being smoked in-which the-ashes are confined and -in which the sparks a'rearrested whereby the'disadvantages encountered-in connection with the use of cigarettes -ovr cigars the ashes and sparks of which were 40 unconned are eliminated.

Due to the fact thatv a` cigarette being smoked is confined inan enclosed chamber when my improved holder isbeing used, the

- smokers fingers will not be stained by nicotine and therefore this disagreeable result of cigarette smoking is eliminated.

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a' cigarette or v cigar holder ,constructed in accordancev with l my invention. i Fig. 2 is a sectlon taken through the ciga- Prior to this invention it has been thev general custom for ashes and sparks result;

rette or cigar holder illustrated in Fig. 1.

` Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross section on line 3-'3 of Fig. `1.

' Fig. 4 is an end elevation on the approximate scale of Fig. 3 showing the outer end 55 of the holder.

Fig. 5 is a cross section on the approxi- 4mate scale of Figs. 1 and 2 showing a modi- -fied form of the invention.

Fig. 6 is a' side elevation of a reduced '30 scale showing the holder as same will appear when the closure members thereof are open.

In the drawing, A designates my im'- proved cigarette or cigar holder which com-` ,05 prises an outer housing l provided at one of its ends with an internallythreaded boss 2.

3 designates the mouth-piece of the ci a- -rette or cigar holder which is provided with an externally threaded end portion adapted .gp to be screwed into the internally threaded boss 2 as shown clearly in Fig. 2.' The mouth-piece 3 is provided with a recess 3 adapted to'receive an end portion of a cigarette or cigar and said mouth-piece is provided also with a port or smoke passageway 4 throu h which smoke will be drawn by the smo er when the holder is being used.

Located within the outer housing 1 of the holderq is an inne-r .shell 5 which extends longitudinally of the outer housing and is of such diameter with respect thereto that an air space 6 is provided between the walls of said outer housing and said inner shell. The; wall of the inner shell at the inner end thereof is provided with an outwardly extended fiange 7 and the inner shell is s ecured to the outer housing by means of rivets or other suitable fastening devices which pass through said flange and extend intothe adjacent end wall of the outer housing 1.

At the end of the holder opposite tpfthe end thereof at which the boss 2 is located, the outer housing is provided with an inwardly turned wall portion 8 which constitutes the endwall of said outer housing, said wall portion, as shown clearly in Figs. 2 and 4, being provided with a circular row of apertures ,9, which are in longitudinal alinement with the air space 6. at one end thereof. 100

Also the wall portion 8 is provided witha cut out portion which aids 1n providing an opening 10 which is alined longitudinally with the interior of the inner shell 5, said opening 10 being of slightly less diameter than the vinterior of said inner shell so as the outer housing at the outer end of the holder by rivets or other suitable fastening devices which lpass through the flange portions 8 and 11i. (Fig. 2). The wall of the inner shell 5 is perforated `longitudin`ally and circumferentiallyx as shown in'-Figs. 2

. along the bottom of the element to a point at and'3. and the wall of the outer housing is preferably provided with a row of apertures 12 which extend longitudinally thereof at the portion of said' housing which normally will be its bottom. Preferably the perforations in thev wallof the inner shellandthe apertures in the 'wall of the outer housing'gradually diminish in size from the rear to the front portionsof said inner shell f and outer housing.

1 -Thewall of the outer housing and-the Wall of the inner shell 5 vare each cut away to provide each of said elements with a cutout portion which .represents approxlr'nate ly one-half of the circumference-of vthe element and extends longitudinally of the element from the line designated -by thelreference character 13 in Fig. 2 tothe outer end of said element. -In other words," the fo17- ward portionof the outer` housing and of the inner shelL comprises each a curved wall' which extends from the approximate vertical center of the element at one side thereof the approximate vertical center of the element at the opposite side thereof. 14 designates a closure member for closin the cutout portion in wall of the outer` ousing 1 and 15 designates a similar closure member for closing the cut-out portion in the wall' of the inner shell 5f The closure members `14 and 15 areshaped to conform' to the shape of the elements. withwhich they are associated and when they are moved -to their closed positions said closure members complete t e walls. of the outer housing and lnner shell so that said elements will oomthe closure mem formed in the adjacent edges pletely enclose articles located therewithin. Extended lon itudinally ofthe edges of er 14 and 15 which contact -with edges of the'wall's of the outer housin j and'inner shell are dove-tail ribsv 16 .whic

are .extended into ldove-tail grooves 17 of said outer housing and inner shell. A Also at the forward end o f the` closure membersY the outer the walls i 14 and 15, saidl closure member 14 is proin contact with a portion of the wall portion "18, and 'said closure .member 15 is secured to said wall portion and consequently to closure member 14 by means of rivets or other suitable fastening devices. At the opposite ends thereof the closure members 14 and 15 are secured together-by one or more rivets 2Q whichpasses through said closure members. and through a spacer 21 located therebetween. The wall portion 18 is provided with a central cut out portion which aids in producingthel opening 10 at the outer end o f the holder.

' In view of the arrangement of l'the closure members 14 and 15 described herein it is plain that said closuremembers areslid ably movable as a u nit with respect to the outer housing and linner shell as shown in Fig. 6, the dove-tail ribson the closure membersmoving longitudinally of the dove-tail grooves in. the walls o f said housing and inner shell.

Itis undesirable that the closure members 14 and 15 be permitted to slide such distance Vwith respect to the outer vhousing and inner Imembers is prevented.

To providefor the conven1ent removal of' he stub of a smoked cigarette or cigar from the recess 3 ofl the` mouth-piece provide an ejector which comprises a slidable whereby further.movement of said closure y member 25 havingaforked end 26 as'shown Y in Fig. 3. 4The member 25 extends through elongatedslots 27 Aformed in the walls of housing and inner shell and said member '25 is provided with a knob 25' at its outer end. 28 designates a sleeve.4 which surrounds the member 25 and is interposed between the walls of the outer housing and the inner shell, said sleeve being pinned or otherwise Asecured toI said member. The forked end of the member' 25 is normall located behind the cigarette or cigarA stu as shown in Fi f2 wherein- C designates a cigarette and 'w en it is desired to remove thestub of the cigarette or cigar it is merely necessary to move the knob 25 longitudinally of the elongated slot 27 whereby..I the the recess 3 o themouth-piece.

cigarette'or ci arl stub will be ejected from- In the use of my improved cigarette or prising a member slidable with respect to ci ar holder the closure members 14 and 15 said housing. n Y e In testimony whereof I have hereunto set will be moved to an open position, as shown in Fig. 6 and the end of the cigarette to be smoked may be introduced into the recess `3. The cigarette, Will then be lighted in the usual manner after which the closure members will be moved to their closed -positions 5 and inner shell will emerge from the holder.

When the "cigarette or cigar has been almost entirely consumed a considerable volumn of smoke will pass from the aperture 29 and this will advise the smoker yof the 'E0 fact that the end of the cigarette or cigar is being reached. Because of the location of the aperture 29 no great amount of smoke will pass therefrom exceptwhen the lcigarette or cigar Within the holder is very short.

In Fig. 5, I illustrate a modified form of the invention in accordance with which the the closure members 14 and 15 are hingedly attached to the outer housing 1 at the 30 point designated by the reference character 30 instead of being slidably attached to the outer housing and inner shell as in the preferred construction. The closure member- 15 is .rigidly fixed to the closure member in spaced relation thereto by the rivet 31 and said closure members will therefore swing as a unit.

In providing my improved cigarette or cigar holder'with the air space 6 between 40 the Wall of the outerhousing 1 and the inner shell 5, said outer housing is maintained in a relatively cool condition during the use of the holder, inasmuch as the .passage of air through the air space 6 will carry off much of the heat of the inner shell. l v

I claim: f A holder for cigarettes and the like comprising a housing, a shell within said housing, the wall of said shell being spaced from a wall of said housing to provide an air space between said walls, means for receiving an end portion of a cigarette, said means being so arranged with respectto my hand.

.said shell that a cigarette supported thereby g will be disposed within said shell, the Walls of said housingV and said shell being. provided with adjacently arranged cut-out portions extended longitudinally of thev cigarette holder substantially from end ,to end v thereof through which a cigarette is passed on introduction thereof into the interior of saidshell, and means for closing saidcut-l out-4 portions, said means for closing the,

f7 aperture in the wall of said housing', com# CHRISTIAN W. LoEsoH. y
