'DISPLAY CASING FOR PENCILS souri Application December 3, 1947, -Serial No.'789,461

(Cl. iL-16.5)

'The present invention vrelates to-an ornamental device mounted and vsupported on a pencil or the like, having an opaque AYbarrel. The invention is suitablefor use with mechanical pencils, fountain pens, telephone dialers, 'and `handle members for a'variety of articles such as key chains.

The present invention relates to a subject matter which is similar to that of Patent No. 2,237,883, issued April V8, 1941, to ASylvester G. Lipie; and theimprovement or-anovel extension'of the subject of that patent is one of the objects of this invention.

l.lne'principal object of the invention is to produce a novel, ornamental and attention attractingA device 'for apencilor the like, and one which maybe used to attract and vi'lx'attention on a display, as'foradvertising.

`The advantages `of the invention Will be apparent vfrom the following description of apreferred embodiment,'taken in connection with the accompanying drawings.

Fig. 1 is a top plan View of an article or pencil, embodying the invention;

Fig. 2 is an elevational View, with the article in normal position;

Fig. 3 is an elevational view while the article is inupside-down position;

Fig. vll'is avertical'section on line 4 4, Fig. 2;

Fig. is a vertical section on line 5-5,'Fig..3; and

Fig. 6 is a perspective View of an element employed in the embodiment.

A condensed description of some of the salient elements and characteristics, at this point, will assist in understanding the later detailed description.

The invention is shown as applied to a me- A transparent capsule I2, has a shank portion I3 telescoping within the end of the barrel II, and an exposed portion I4 of spherical form and of greater diameter than the barrel, extending above the top of the barrel. The capsule I2 has a central tubular chamber I5 extending substantially throughout the length of the capsule. As specically shown, the chamber is lled with a liquid and an unsupported solid object I6 in the liquid with a specic gravity lower than the liquid and, of course, subject to the buoyancy of the liquid. The arrangement is such that in normal upright position, as shown in Figs. 2 and 4, the object I6 is visible in magnified aspect through the spherical portion I4; while in upside down position, as shown in Figs. 3 and 5, the object is within the shank portion I3 and hidden from view by the opaquebarrel II.

The Abarrel Il may be constructed of any of many `suitable materials. Presenteconomic and market conditions make it convenient to use a plastic, such as cellulose nitrate. These plastics are available in a wide .variety o Icolors in tube form.

Thedeviceto which the invention is shown as applied is a mechanical pocket pencil. It may be applied-to a wide varietyof `articles which use a barrel of the general character indicated. These articles include fountain pens, telephone dialers, and those articles which have handle members of this character such as key chains.

The capsule l2 is of the sametransparent material, `which may `he glass or any one of many .suitable fplastics, but preferably one which has proper light .refracting properties, so that the spherical portion I4 may magnify the image on therobject lo, or the object itself.

The. chamber `15in =the 'capsule I 2 contains the object I 6, which 'asspecically shown is a hollow cylinder of such a size as toalord easy clearance with .the walls of the chamber t5. This chamber .may be arcylindricalbore,closed by a cap Il, but it Vmay be of any `selected cross-section. This cross-sectionimay be uniform, butnotnecessarily so :for Lcertain uses, whereior instancegranular material v:is used.

In the embodiment as shown, the chamber I5 is lled with a liquid, and the object I6. A clear liquid of higher specic gravity than the object I6 is selected in order to obtain the peculiar result illustrated in the drawings, and previously described. This produces a very striking eect and is particularly desirable to display an advertising symbol or a trade-mark, exemplified by the letter A, as shown on the object I6.

It may be desirable to have an eiect that is the reverse of that shown in the drawings. Then the object I6 may be of higher specific gravity than the liquid. In that case the object I6 is visible when the article is in upside down position; that is when the article is turned so that the exposed portion I4 is below the barrel II.

The capsule I2 may be partially filled' with granular material, without any liquid. This is effective to display a sample of merchandise of this character. Sand, suds, grain, and miniature objects of wide variety may be used effectively. In this case, of course, the merchandise will be in view only when the article is upside down.

It will be apparent from the foregoing description that the invention provides a novel and interesting ornamental device. When used for an advertising purpose, it has a pleasing attentionattracting result.

Various changes may be made within the scope of the appended claims, Without departing from the spirit of this invention. Parts of the invention may be used without the Whole, and it is contemplated that details and improvements may be added while retaining the beneiits of the invention.

I claim:

1. An ornamental device mounted and supported on a pencil having an opaque barrel, com prising a transparent capsule having a shank portion telescoping Within the end of said barrel, and an exposed portion extending above the top of the barrel adapted to magnify an object contained therein, the capsule having a central tubular chamber therein, and an unsupported object partially filling said chamber, whereby in one position the object is visible in magniied proportions through the exposed portion of the capsule, while in another position it is within the said shank portion and hidden from vieW by said opaque barrel. l

2. An ornamental device mounted and supported on a pencil having an opaque barrel, comprising a transparent capsule having a shank portion telescoping within the end of said barrel, and an exposed portion extending above the top of the barrel, the capsule having a central tubular chamber therein, the form of the exposed portion being such as to magnify an object within the chamber at such portion, and an unsupported object partially lling said chamber, whereby in one position the object is visible through the exposed portion of the capsule in magnified aspect, while in another position it is within the said shank portion and hidden from view by said opaque barrel.

3. An ornamental device mounted and supported on a pencil having an opaque barrel, comprising a transparent capsule having a shank portion telescoping within the end of said barrel, and an exposed portion extending above the top of the barrel adapted to magnify an object contained therein, the capsule having a central tubular chamber therein, a liquid in said chamber, and an unsupported object of a dierent specic gravity from the liquid within the chamber and subject to the buoyancy of the liquid, whereby in one position the obj ect is visible in magnied proportions through the exposed portion of the capsule, while in another position it is within the said shank portion and hidden from view by said opaque barrel.

4. An ornamental device mounted and supported on a pencil having an opaque barrel, comprising a transparent capsule having a shank portion telescoping Within the end of said barrel, and an exposed portion extending above the top of the barrel adapted to magnify an object contained therein, the capsule having a central tubular chamber therein, a liquid in said chamber, and an unsupported object of a specic gravity less than the liquid within the chamber and subject to the buoyance of the liquid, whereby in normal upright position the object is Visible in magnified proportions through the exposed portion of the capsule, while in upside down position the object is within the shank portion and hidden from view by said opaque barrel.

5. An ornamental device mounted and supported on a pencil having an opaque barrel, comprising a transparent capsule having a shank portion telescoping within the end of said barrel, and an exposed portion of spherical form of greater diameter than the barrel and extending above the top of the barrel and adapted to magnify an object contained therein, the capsule having a central tubular chamber therein, a liquid in said chamber, and an unsupported object of a specic gravity less than the liquid within the chamber and subject to the buoyancy of the liquid, whereby in normal upright position the object is visible in magnified aspect through said spherical portion, while in upside down position the object is within the shank portion and hidden from view by said opaque barrel.
