Description

Feb. 4, 19.47l L RICH LIPSTICK CASE Filed Oct. 5, 1944 Patented Feb. 4, 1947 UNITED ST'EES ATENT FFICE Claims.

The invention has among its objects the provision of an improved retractable lipstick case of novel construction, conguration and appearance, and which is easy to manipulate by one hand alone. l

Another object of the invention is to provide a retractable lipstick case of the push type comprising a minimum number of parts `and which is reliable and eiiicient in its operation.

Another object of the invention is to provide a retractable lipstick case of the push type wherein the cover and body member of the case are provided with cooperating engaging means, thus preventing accidental displacement of the cover from the case.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a retractable lipstick case of the push type wherein the bottom wall oi the body of the case is removable, thus permitting the convenient insertion of a refill after the original has been consumed.

Other objects of the invention will be apparent from and set forth in the following description and drawing which illustrates a preferred embodiment thereof.

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a lipstick case embodying the present invention, the cover of the case being shown partially broken away.

Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 24.

Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional View along the line 4 4 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view of the device.

Fig. 5 is a longitudinal sectional view of the case with the cover removed therefrom, showing the lipstick in its projected position and the carrier extended to the limit of its forward or upward movement.

Referring to the drawing, the improved device comprises the tubular casing l0 and the cover l l, both said members being substantially square in cross-section, as shown in'Figs. 3 and 4. It will be noted however that the inside of casing IS is cylindrical. Said casing lil and cover Il are preferably molded from any suitable plastic or resin such as, for example, cellulose acetate Z and the like, or from any suitable thermal setting plastic molding material.

Casing l0 is open at each of its respective opposite ends, its inner end being closed by base member l2, and its outer end by cover ll. Said casing it is formed with the inward lateral shoulder i3 at a point slightly above the middle thereof. For convenience, I have designated that portion of casing iii above shoulder I3 by the reference numeral ill. Said portion lil of casing I0 is offset with respect to the lower portion of casing I.

Slidably positioned within casing Il! and freely movable longitudinally therein is the cylindrical carrier or lipstick holder i5. A tongue l@ is formed in the cylindrical side wall of said carrier, said tongue being partially severed from said wall and deflected or bent at right angles therefrom. Said tongue it serves as a base or support on which the lipstick L rests, the bottom face oi said lipstick L abutting the top face of tongue i6, as shown in Figs. 2 and 6. The lower portion of lipstick L is frictionally held by the cup-like portion of carrier It, located above tongue W. For convenience, I have designated said portion of carrier i5 by the reference numeral il. Carrier i5 may be made from any suitable metal or the like, preferably brass.

Secured to carrier l5 adjacent the lower end thereof is the coupling-pin lil. The shank of said pin i3 passes through a longitudinal slot I9 formed in front wall 2@ of casing Iii and the head of said pin i8 is secured to the longitudinal finger piece 2i. The said slot i9 is located within a longitudinal groove 26 formed in iront wall 2U, said groove extending from the bottom of said front wall to the top thereof. Finger piece 2l is slidable within said groove or recess 25. The said nger piece 2! is transversely ribbed so that the nger of the user will not slip therefrom. It will be noted that longitudinal slot I9 extends from the base of casing Il) to a point slightly below shouider i3 of said casing lil.

v It is accordingly apparent that movement of finger piece 2| will cause carrier i5 to move therewith. By pushing the said finger piece 2! forwardly carrier l5 is caused to advance longitudinally, thus partially projecting lipstick L out of casing Hl. Fig. 6 shows carrier l5 extended to the limit of its forward or upward movement.

vIn this position, coupling pin i8 is located at the upper end of longitudinal slot i3. the upper end of said slot i9 serving as a stop to limit the forward or upward movement of carrier l5. 2 shows the carrier l5 retracted to the limit S of its inward or downward movement. This is accomplished merely by moving a pushing finger piece 2| inwardly or downwardly to the full extent of its inward movement. In this position, the bottom end of said carrier I abuts the top face of bottom member I2.

It will be noted that although there is suicient frictional engagement between carrier I5 and the inside of casing lil, the said carrier l5 is movable longitudinally in said casing Itl and may be advanced or retracted at any point within the confines of the upper and lower stop limits.

As regards bottom piece or member I2, this is removably secured to the bottom of casing Ill' in any desired manner. in order to close` the bottom end of longitudinal slot i9 in front wall 2li, bottom piece I2 is formed with the integral upstanding flange or lip 22, the inner face of said ange or lip 2'? abutting the lower end of front wall 2Q. Member I2 and its integral iiange 22 act asv a stop to limit the inward or downward movement of finger piece 2l..

In order to replace a used up lipstick carrier I5' is brought to the lowermost position shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Bottom piece I2 is then removed and the entire carrier iii and finger piece 2l and coupling pin it, as a unitary article, is withdrawn from casing iii through the opening in the bottom wall thereof. The old lipstick is then removed from the upper portion Il of carrier I5 and replaced by a refill. Carrier I 5 is then inserted in casingiil through the opening in the bottom wall thereof and said opening is then closed by bottom piece I2.

Upper portion il! of casing IE) is provided in the front wall 25 thereof with a longitudinal undercut groove or recess 23, said groove 23 eX- tending from shoulder I3 to a point slightly below the upper end of portion lli. Groove 23 is aligned with longitudinal groove 2G and longitudinal slot I9 in front wall 2Q and the width of said groove 23 is substantially equal to or slightly larger than the width of nger piece 2i. Said groove 23 is in effect an extension of groove 26. Groove 23 has a dual function. adapted to receive nger piece 2i when said nger piece Z is pushed or moved forwardly or upwardly. Fig. 6 shows nger piece 2l riding within said groove 23. Secondly, groove 23 is adapted to receive longitudinal projection or boss 1M formed on the inner face of the front wall of cover I l. In this manner cover I I is securely held to casing Iii, the said construction preventing the accidental dislodging or displacement of the cover II from the case i0. Fig. 4 clearly shows theI interlocking of projection 2d with groove 2'3.

it will be noted from Figs. 3 and ll that lingerpiece 2l and projection 2li are dove-tailed in cross-section. Such configuration permits the ready reception of said members by undercut groove 23.

I have illustratedr and described a preferred embodiment of my invention, but it is obvious that numerouschanges, omissions and alterations may be made without departing from its spirit. It is not imperative that the case be square in cross-section. It may, if desired, be of polygonal or other cross-section. Likewise, the casing may be made of metal or any other suit able material.

It should be noted that whenever the lingerpiece 2| is pushed or moved forwardly or upwardly no part or" the lipstick L is visible through longitudinal slot i9. This is so because the lip- First, it is 4 stick L rests upon tongue I6 of carrier I5 and does not extend to the base of said carrier. This is far advantageous over the usual push type of lipstick casing for the reason that in the usual cases of this type, the lipstick is visible through the longitudinal slot and there is usually a certain amount of seepage therethrough. With the instant device, only the desired amount of lipstick to be used is exposed by the user. There is no chance of any dust or foreign matter contacting the lipstick through slot IS.

I claim: l
