UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CONTAINER FOR COMBINATION OF LIPSTICK AND BRUSH Carl W. Gardiner,

Schnefel Bros.,

Short Hills, N. J., assignor to Corporation, Newark,

N. J., a

This invention relates primarily to a combined lip stick holder and applicator therefor, comprising a casing containing a combined ejector means for both the lip stick holder and the applicator.

It is an object of this invention to provide a thin resilient casing substantially cylindrical throughout the major portion thereof to receive the lip stick holder and its contents and to provide a lateral extension on said cylinder to receive the applicator means and a portion of the spring ejector means for both the holder and applicator.

It is an object of this invention to provide a casing that will release the holder by pressure on the resilient casing in combination with spring actuated means for ejecting both the holder and the applicator.

Other objects and advantages will be revealed in connection with the detailed description of the drawings which form a part of this specification.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a plan view showing some parts of my device with the cover removed and the applicator in ejected position.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view taken approximately on the line 2-2 of Figure 1 but also showing the cover, applicator and holder of the lip stick in side elevation.

Figure 3 is a partial longitudinal sectional view similar to Figure 2, but with the cover removed and the applicator in ejected position.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary view in section taken approximately on the line 4-4 of Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a plan view of the cover showing the lip stick holder in dotted lines.

Figure 6 is a side elevational view of the cover and the lip stick holder.

The drawing is merely illustrative of the invention and is not definitive thereof, since many changes in contour may be resorted to without departing from the essential features of my invention.

The reference characters identify the parts and portions of my invention in both the drawing and detailed description.

In the drawings the casing I constitutes two united tubes or cylinders arranged in spaced parallel relation. The larger tube comprises a receptacle to receive the lip stick holder 3 having the cover 4 which forms the base of the lip stick holder 3. The holder 3 is preferably provided with two projections or bosses 5 arranged in opposed relation to each other and substantially in a vertical plane at approximately a right angle to the plane defined by the axes of the 2 cylinders 2 and 6. The smaller cylinder 6 is substantially rigid While the larger cylinder 2 is elastic and resilient throughout its major portion so that when the bosses 5 engage the resili-.- ent walls of the cylinder 2, the holder 3 may be maintained in the casing l by friction against the tension of the spring 1. When the wall 8 opposite the smaller cylinder 6 is pressed toward said smaller cylinder, the diameter of the larger cylinder is increased in the vicinity of the bosses 5 and the friction between the bosses 5 and the cylinder 2 is diminished so that the holder 3 and the applicator are simultaneously ejected by the spring I. The external diameter of the holder 3 is slightly less than the normal internal diameter of the cylinder 2 so that the friction and release operation may function as contemplated.

The casing I is also provided with a partition Wall 9 having a guide slot It] to receive a transversely arranged pin ll carried by the base or support l2 of the applicator I3. The applicator comprises a suitable pointing and distributing bristle brush as clearly indicated in the drawings.

The wall 9 is provided with a combined guide and stop [4 having the stop portion l5 and guiding portions l6 and I1. The guiding portions I6 and I! cooperate with complemental guiding slot or recess 14' located in the cover 4 whereby the cover 4 is guided when being closed to a position to accurately align the cover with both cylinders 2 and 6. The stop portion I5 is located in the path of the transversely arranged pin H to limit the ejecting movement of the ejecting spring 1. The combined guide and stop I4 is firmly but removably secured in the partition wall 9.

The cover 4 rests when closed against the end edges of the tubes or cylinders 2 and 6 to provide for free yielding quality of the major portions of cylinder 2.

In order to provide for assembling the applicator unit l2 and I3 with the casing I, it is to be noted that the partition 9 is provided with a slot Ill open at its upper end to receive the pin H of the applicator unit. When the spring 1 and unit are inserted in the casing I, the upper end of the slot is closed by the combined stop and guide M. A slotted portion comprising recesses 15a and l5b is provided in the partition 9 and is located transversely of the slot Ill. The slotted or recessed portion receives the element 14 with a driving fit so that the element l4 may be forcibly removed if desired.

The operation of the device appears to be clear from the foregoing description but it may be added that pressure of an operators thumb against the wall 8 opposite the cylinder 6 reduces the friction of the bosses on opposite Walls of the cylinder 2 and the spring 1 in combination with the cross pin H ejectsboth the holder 3 and the applicator unit l2 and [3. It is to be noted that the cross pin H engages the lower edge or end of the holder as clearly indicated in Figure 2. When the two parts 3 and 1 2 are ejected, then the holder 3 may be readily grasped by the operators fingers and entirely removed from the casing l and used like an ordinary lip stick and holder. When a suitable quantity of the lip stick has been applied to the lips, it may now be distributed accurately by the applicator brush [3. Since the applicator l2 and I3 ,isattached to the casing I, the operator simply grasps the casing and manipulates the brush l3 to make the desired distribution of the applied lip stick.

It is also to be noted that my device when asbled or when the principal parts are separated for use, can roll less than 360 on substantially a horizontal supporting surface. This particular structural contour prevents undue rolling and may also prevent the device from dropping to the floor or the like.

The extensions which prevent undue rolling constitute a safety feature and is important since it applies universally to the two principal parts of my device when assembled or disassembled.

It is also to be noted that my device when assembled is free from external projections except the lateral extensions of cover 4 and casing I. There are no externally exposed apertures or slots when the two principal parts are assembled.

The cover 4 accurately engages the casin l in a common plane and the external surfaces of both casing l and cover 4 are externally flush and are inaccurate alignment when assembled and in an entirely closed condition.

It appears to be obvious that the tubes 2 and 6 may be of any suitable cross sectional contour, that is, they may be cylindrical as shown or they may be square or polygonal in cross section, etc.

While I have described the elements best adapted to perform the functions set forth, it is apparent that various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details of construction may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the principles of the invention.

Having thus described my invention, what 'I claim is:

'1. A combined device, comprising a casing hav ing a lip stick holder and an applicator therefor, said casing comprising two parallel tubes united permanently by an external wall and a partition wall, one of said tubes being large and the other being small, the major portion of said large tube being resilient and flexible and frictionally receiving said lip stick holder, said holder having means thereon to forcibly expand said large tube in one diametrical direction combined with means inherent in said large tube whereby said expansion may be increased by pressure on said large tube to decrease the friction between said large tube and said holder, said small tube containing said applicator and a helically formed compression spring, said spring being located beneath the applicator, said applicator carrying a transversely arranged pin engaging the lower end of said holder when the 'holder'is telescoped into the larger tube, said partition wall having a slotted portion extending longitudinally thereof and receiving and guiding said pin whereby both said holder and applicator may be simultaneously ejected from said casing by said spring.
