Description

Oct. 27, 1959 D. LOOKHOLDER ASH RECEIVER Filed Dec. 23, 1957 iNVENTOR United States Patent t ASH RECEIVER David Lookholder, Kalamazoo, Mich.
Application December 23, 1957, Serial No. 704,431
6 Claims. (Cl. 131-231) This invention relates to ash receivers in which the receptacle or container may be a commercial type of can such, for example, as a used food or liquid can and the receptacle may be discarded after use thus avoiding the necessity for cleaning.
The main objects of this invention are:
First, to provide an ash receiver of-relaltively large capacity which at the same time is convenient to use and manipulate and is attractive in appearance.
Second, to provide an ash receiver unit including a receptacle which may be quickly engaged with and removed from the body member.
Third, to provide an ash receiver having these advantages including a body member and cover which may be produced in an attractive and highly finished design and the receptacle supporting body portion is not likely to be damaged in use.
Objects relating to details and economies of the invention will appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims.
A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of an ash receiver embodying my invention.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary view in vertical section on a line corresponding to line 22 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a plan view.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary view corresponding to that .of Fig. .2,.more clearly showing the relation of the assembled parts.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary vertical section illustrating the manner of assembling the parts.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary top view of the upper end of the body member in greatly reduced size illustrating the relation of the receptacle supporting means to the body member.
The embodiment of my invention illustrated comprises a cylindrical body member 1 provided with the outwardly projecting flange-like base 2 having a dished upper surface 3. The base cushioning pads 4 are adhesively secured to the underside of the base. These pads perform the double function of protecting the surface on which the receiver is positioned and also they are desirably of material having some gripping engagement with the surface to minimize accidental or unintentional sidewise sliding of the receptacle when in use. I
The body or holder member may be desirably formed of Wood or of plastic. The receptacle 5 may desirably be an emptied tin can, such as a food can, or liquid can and is provided with a rim portion 6; The body member is dimensioned to loosely receive the receptacle, the internal diameter being substantially greater than that of the receptacle so that the receptacle can be freely inserted therein into the holder member from the bottom and removed from the top of the body member. The receptacle is centrally supported within the body member and out of contact with the walls thereof by 2 means of the springable blade like supports 7 which are fixedly secured on the inner side of the wall of the body member in angular spaced relation as by screws 8. These springable supports are angularly spaced and their tips 9 desirably project above the upper edge of the body member, as shown in Fig.5.
When the receptacle is inserted into the body member from the bottom thereof it is engaged by these supporting members which not only support the receptacle vertically but center it within the body member and in spaced relation to the walls thereof so there is no noise resulting from the handling of the assembled unit.
The annular top 10 is provided with a downwardly projecting flange 11 which removably embraces the upper end of the body member. The central opening of the top member is of such diameter that its inner edge 12 overhangs and conceals the upper edge of the receptacle. The cover is provided with a scraper element 13 having a central opening 14. This scraper element, in the embodiment illustrated, is in the form of a grid which facilitates the removal of ash and the extinguishing of a cigarette, cigar or the like. The top is beveled at 15 and provided with a plurality of angularly spaced radial grooves 16 adapted to receive a cigarette or the like. The beveled edge facilitates the grasping of the same. To insert the receptacle into the holder it is introduced into the bottom of the body member chamber and thrust upwardly therein until the springable sup port members snap over the rim of the receptacle in which position the support-members are in lateral supporting engagement with the wall of the receptacle below the rim. To remove the receptacle the IDPMD'ICIIlbBl' is removed and the rim of the receptacle grasped and the receptacle lifted upwardly from the body member, or if desired it may be pushed upwardly by thrust on the bottom thereof.
I have illustrated and described my invention in a highly practical and desirable embodiment thereof. While the structure may be quite economically produced it is attractive and at the same time very practical and convenient to use.
I have not illustrated ornamentations other than the general design as the ornamentation *may be greatly varied.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. An ash receiver comprising a body member having a cylindrical chamber therein open at the bottom and top thereof, a plurality of angularly spaced vertically disposed blade like springably resilient holder members fixedly secured at their lower ends on the inner side of the wall of said chamber and with their upper ends springably free and projecting inwardly from said wall and terminating above the upper end thereof, a receptacle dimensioned to be inserted into the body member chamber from the bottom thereof and having an outwardly projecting rim at the upper end thereof, said holder members being in lateral thrust springable engagement with the sides of the receptacle with their upper ends in supporting engagement with the rim thereof, a removable top member provided with a downwardly projecting body member engaging flange and having an opening therein of less diameter than said chamber in said body member so that the top member overhangs and conceals the upper edge of the receptacle and said receptacle holder members when the parts are in assembled relation.
2. An ash receiver comprising a body member having a chamber therein open at the bottom and top thereof, a plurality of angularly spaced vertically disposed bl-ade like springably resilient holder members fixedly secured at their lower ends on the inner side of the wall of said Patented Oct. 27, 1195Q chamber and with their upper ends springably free, a receptacle dimensioned to be inserted into the body member chamber from the bottom thereof and having an outwardly projecting rim at the upper end thereof, said holder members being in lateral thrust springable engagement with the sides of the receptacle with their upper 'ends in supporting engagement with the rim thereof, a removable-top member having an opening therein of less diameter than said chamber in said body member so that the top member overhangs and conceals theupper edge or the receptacle and said receptacle holder members when the parts are in assembled relation.
