Dec. 16, 1947. l. L. COOK {PAPER ENVELOPE ASH RECEIVER Filed May 12, 1947 IRVING .L.COOK

ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 16, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAPER ENVELOPE ASH RECEIVER Irving L. Cook, Gillett, Wis.

1 Claim. 1

My invention refers to ash receivers, and it has for its primary object to provide a simple and effective non-combustible envelope ash receiver for cigarettes or cigars. The receiver may be conveniently carried fiat in the pocket or in a handbag of the user.

By hand squeezing the edges of the envelope, it is opened for the reception of ashes or cigarette butts.

The paper envelope material is treated with a fireproof solution, and one wall of said envelope projects above the mouth of the same to form a lip, having a keyhole slot therein, which slot serves as a cigarette holder.

The lip slot is for the purpose of introducing and gripping an ignited cigarette therein, whereby the device serves as a holder. Thus, a cigarette inserted in the holder may be carried about by hand, and the ashes of the burning cigarette are automatically dropped into the mouth of the receiver.

Under various conditions it may be desirable to provide a base for the envelope, so that the same may be supported upon a table in the manner of a standard ash tray.

Under such conditions, a standard package of paper matches is utilized to provide a base.

To attach this improvised base, the bottom portion of the envelope is folded over at approximately a right angle and the striking strip of the match package is slipped over the folded envelope edge while the backing cover is folded upwardly and against the back Wall of said envelope, whereby the same is vertically braced. Thus, the back of the match package serves as a flat surface to form a supporting base and when the side edges of the envelope are squeezed to open the mouth thereof, the unit is completed, and the smoker is not only supplied with a receiver out also matches.

Briefly, the receiver may be carried from place to place or it may comprise a standing article.

It is particularly advantageous in outdoor use, due to the fact that an ignited cigarette butt may be dropped into the pocket and thereafter, the envelope is folded or rolled to be thrown away, fully encased to prevent forest fires, keeping in mind the fireproof prevention.

With the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, substantially as hereinafter described, and more particularly I defined by the appended claim, it being understood that such changes in the precise embodi- Application May 12, 1947, Serial No. 747,380

2 ment of the herein disclosed invention may be made as come within the scope of the claim.

In the accompanying drawings is illustrated one complete example of the physical embodiment of the present invention constructed according to the best mode so far devised for the practical application of the principles thereof.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front face view of a paper envelope embodying the features of my invention.

Figure 2 is an edge view of the same.

Figure 3 is a top plane view thereof.

Figure 4 is a front elevation of the envelope sprung open and provided with a base embodying standard packaging of matches.

Figure 5 is a longitudinal sectional view through the same, the section being indicated by line 5-5 of Figure 4.

Figure 6 is a planned sectional view, the section being indicated by line 6-8 of Figure l.

Figure '7 is a face view of the blank from which the envelope is formed.

Referring by characters to the drawings, l represents the front wall of a paper or fiber envelope, the same being treated by any non-combustible solution, whereby it is fireproof.

The bottom of the envelope is closed by a flap 2 and the rear wall 3 of the same is extended beyond the mouth of said envelope in the form of a lip 4, the same having cut therein a keyhole slot 5, which slot serves as a gripping receiver for a cigarette when the same is inserted therein, as indicated in dotted lines, Figure 5.

When it is desired to use the holder while the smoker is moving about from place to place, the side edges of the envelope are squeezed together, whereby the same is rounded out to form a full ash receiving mouth 6 as indicated in Figure 5 of the drawings.

In this portable use of the ash receiver, it will be noted that it also serves as a holder, and the cigarette when inserted in the keyhole slot will be in a position as indicated in Figure 5 whereby the lighted end is above the mouth of the receiver, and ashes will automatically be deposited within the envelope or pocket.

Furthermore as indicated in dotted lines, Figure 5, when it is desired to snufi out the lighted end of a cigarette A, said end is simply pressed against the inner surface of the back Wall, where by the ignited portion is separated from the stump. Should the smoker be about a table or the like, desire to rest the ash receiver, all that is required is to fold over the bottom end of the envelope, as indicated in Figure 5. Said folded end is then inserted between the matches of a package and the striking strip 1 of a standard match package. The back 1 of said package then forms a flat supporting base, for the receiver, and the cover flap 1" is folded upwardly to engage the back Wall of the envelope and serve as a brace, whereby said envelope is vertically supported for use, thus, developing a wide open mouth for receiving ashes and cigarette stumps, while at 'tthe same time, the cigarette Av as indicated in dottedlines, Figure 5, maybe fitted into the keyhole slot, which serves the purpose of a holder.

As shown in Figure 7 of the drawing, the edges of the envelope blank are provided with an ad'- hesive whereby the same, when folded'tover'ycomplete the article in the same manner as any standard envelope.

In supplying these fiat non-combustible ash receivers to the public, it is obvious that they may be utilized for advertising purposes.

It is also understood that the tongue 4 of the terial, whereby in automobiles or other dark:

places, the receiver may be quickly located.

bottomend-of the envelope andilhavingrits cover folded upwardly to engage the envelope for supporting the same in an upright position, the back Wall of the match package serving as a fiat base.
