Feb. 23, 1954 G. w. BRADBURN EFFUSING DEVICE Filed Dec. 8, 1952 All Y INVENTOR 6?, VV. B ra Z' u rn wel@ Patented Feb. 23, 1954 EFFUSING nimeer.y K George Wfa-Bradhum, Silver. S1n=in'.;f,l\id.v l. Annotation neem-ter s, 1osaitsemrNbrazgaafa (01.1 vasa-zzn,

'inventionrelates-to4 aneffuser; more-pare' ticul'arlfy a device Lof this kindiforuseJ insdisseminating a perfume or likedesired-'odorff According--toH-my invention' the device takes the form of a small container or receptacle, although it mayfbe of* any desired1 size, whereinthe` liquid such as perfumeisscontainedf,.theacontainer being providedfwith preferably twor oppositely disposed inwardly extending hollow` tubular members, each having at their innermost ends a very fine opening whereby the gasesor'vapors may exude, but the.l liquid itself will notwow from thee con# trainers.;v f

The device may suitably be made of any desired material, such as glass, plastic, metal, or combinations of these materials, and the tubes may be inserted and held in any suitable manner, one such means being shown herein by way of illustration.

When made of a suitable small size it may be carried in a ladies handbag and will effuse to the contents thereof a desired agreeable odor, or it may be so made as to be of a suitable size to be used in a drawer or other clothes container to effuse an agreeable odor somewhat on the order of use of sachet or the like.

The device may be suitably decorated, engraved, colored and otherwise constructed to be of a very attractive appearance and the contents will last a considerable period of time. The perfume thus contained will not stain any adjacent articles and yet the articles will fully partake of the perfume odors.

With the above and other objects in view, my invention consists in the arrangement, combination and details of construction disclosed in the drawing and specification, and then more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawing- Figure 1 is a longitudinal section taken through an effusing device, constructed according to an embodiment of this invention,

Figure 2 is sectional view taken on the line 2 2lof Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a fragmentary longitudinal section showing the device in vertical position,

Figure 4 is a fragmentary longitudinal section of a modified form of this invention.

Referring to the drawing, the numeral I designates generally a container or receptacle which in the present instance is formed of a cylindrical body II having opposite end walls I2 and I3 fixed thereto. The body I I may be formed of any suitable material such as glass, plastic, metal or the 2f( v likef,:1 and-eachif and waliflhasirxedslmeneimian 'inwardly-"projectingttubei1M:

Furthermore, when the container is disposed on end or in a vertical position, as shown in Figure 3, the liquid I1 will not encompass the lower one of the tubes I4 as shown in Figure l3.

In Figure 4 there is disclosed a modied form of this invention wherein the tubular container IIIa. is formed of separable sections IIa and IIb which are threadably connected together. In other respects the structure shown in Figure 4 will be the same as that shown in Figures 1 to 3.

It will be understood that the structure shown in Figures 1 to 3 may be made as a unitary or integra1 structure, with the several parts thereof formed integral with each other.

In the use of this device, the perfume I 1 is inserted into the container I0 through one of the tubes I4, being preferably inserted under pressure and the amount of the liquid is slightly less than one-half the capacity of the container III. The container may then be disposed in a desired location, such as in a clothes closet, a chest, or in any other place amongst clothes, whereby the perfume emanating from the liquid I1 and passing through the tips I5 will come into contact with the clothes.

I do not mean to confine myself to the exact details of construction h erein disclosed, but claim all variations falling within the purview of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

l. An effusing device comprising an elongated cylindrical receptacle for a volatile liquid substance to be eiused, said receptacle closed at each end thereof by a centrally apertured end wall portion, a pair of substantially cylindrical members extending inwardly of said receptacle one from each end thereof, said members each seated at one end in one of said end wall apertures, and

said members each of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of said receptacle, and said members each of a length substantially less than half the length of said receptacle, said members each being formed with constricted tips at their free ends of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of their body portions, and having minute apertures in said tips whereby when filled with fluid to less than half of the capacity thereof regardless ofthe position of said device, said liquid will efiusively gradually escape but cannot owingly escape from said receptacle.

2. An effusing device comprising an elongated cylindrical receptacle for a volatile liquidsubr stance to be effused, said receptacle closed at each end thereof by a centrally'apertured endv Wall portion, a pair of substantially cylindrical members extending inwardly of said receptacle one from each end thereof, said members each seated at one end in one oi said wall apertures, and said members each of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of said receptacle, and said members each of a length substantially less than half the length of said receptacle, said members each being formed with constricted tips at their free ends of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of their body portions, and having minute apertures in said tips whereby when lled with fluid to less than half of the capacity thereof regardless of the position oi said device, said liquid will eiusively gradually escape but cannot flowingly escape from said receptacle, the said receptacle, tubular members, and end wall portions being integrally related.

3. An eiusing device comprising an elongated cylindrical receptacle for a volatile liquid substance to be effused, said receptacle closed at each end thereof by a centrally apertured end wall portion, a pair of substantially cylindrical members extending inwardly of said receptacle one from each end thereof, said members each seated at one end in one of said end wall apertures, and said members each of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of said receptacle, and said members each of a length substantially less than half the length of said receptacle, said members each being formed with constricted tips at their free ends of a diameter substantially less than the diameter of their body portions, and having minute apertures in said tips whereby` when filled with fluid to less than half of the capacity thereof regardless of the position of said device, said liquid will efusively gradually escape but cannot fiowingly escape from said receptacle, said receptacle being comprised of two separable halves having a sealed connection therebetween.

GEORGE W. BRADBURN.
