June 15, 1965 F. SKINNER WIG DRYING LAMP Filed Dec. 5, 1962 INVEN'iOR Florence Skinner ATTORNEY United States Patent .0

3,188,752 WIG DRYING LAMP Florence Skinner, 309 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn, N.Y. Filed Dec. 5, 1962, Ser. No. 242,546 3 Claims. (Cl. 34-104) This invention relates generally to illuminating devices and more particularly to an electrically energized lamp capable of performing a wig drying function.

Whereas donning of artificial coiftures by women is becoming a widely increasing practice, the need for apparatus facilitating drying of such coiifures after washing thereof is readily apparent. That is, the provision of a dryer for home use to accomplish this end in a convenient, expedient and inexpensive manner is to satisfy a long felt and increasingly important need.

Essentially, the primary function of the instant wig drying lamp is to provide a device serving a dual purpose, i.e., performing either in the manner of a conventional illuminating table lamp or as a wig dryer, no modification being required to effectuate the latter function.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a wig drying lamp including novel support means for said wig, the aesthetic appearance of said lamp being preserved notwithstanding the elfective function of said support means.

A further object of the instant device is to provide a wig dryer having the appearance and alternative operation of a conventional table lamp.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be set forth in part hereinafter and in part will be obvious herefrom, or may be learned by practice of the invention, the same being realised and attained by means of the instrumentalities, constructions, arrangements, combinations, and improvements herein shown and described.

The accompanying drawings referred to herein and constituting a part hereof, and together with the description, serve toexplain the principles of the invention.

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of the present invention, a simulative wig being draped thereover for purposes of illustration;

FIGURE 2 is a top plan view of the wig drying lamp;

FIGURE 3 is a side elevation cross-sectional view of the invention taken along line 33 of FIGURE 2, the illumimating and blowing means being illustrated therewithin, and

FIGURE 4 is a plan view taken along line 4-4 of FIGURE 3.

A general understanding of the arrangement and location of the parts of the novel device may be had by reference to FIGURE 1 wherein the wig drying lamp designated generally by numeral 1 is shown perspectively, wig or artificial coiifure 2 being positioned thereon for drying purposes.

Referring now in detail to FIGURE 3, a cross-sectional representation of the device, it will be observed that said wig drying lamp is comprised of hollow base portion 4 and an upright portion 6, said upright portion having an open upper end 8 and an open lower end 10, said lower end being removably seated upon socket-supporting plate 11, said plate being in turn seated upon annular shoulder 12 of base portion 4. Annular flange 14, being disposed peripherally of said upper end 8 is formed with radially arranged perforations 16, said perforations being preferably elongate as shown although other suitably shaped perforations are within the contemplation of this invention.

Said upright portion 6 is further provided with annularly flared region 18, said region being positioned adjacently of said upper end 8 and being slightly smaller in diametrical cross-section than said annular flange 14 located coaxially thereabove. Apertures 20, provided within said flared region, function as do perforations 16, to the end of assisting in the uniform drying of a wig 2 placed over the instant device as shown in FIGURES 1 and 3, said function being described in more detail hereinbelow following.

Aforementioned socket-supporting-plate 11, having circularly oriented apertures 22 therewithin, provides support for socket 24 mounted thereupon, an illuminating electric light bulb 26 being conventionally received within said socket.

Blower means comprised of electric motor 28 having fan blades 30 drivingly associated therewith via shaft 32, is provided within said base portion 4 to direct a forced flow of air through said apertures 22 and surfacedly of electric bulb 26.

Electrical conducting wire 34, arranged as illustrated in FIGURE 3, carries electrical power received through plug connector 36, from any suitable power source, to both illuminating bulb 26 and motor 28, main switch 38 being provided as a circuit control common to both elements while auxiliary switch 40 controls current flow to said motor 28 independently of said bulb 26. Accordingly, it will be appreciated that the wig drying lamp may be utilized for illuminating purposes only, merely by disconnecting motor 28 from the power source, current to bulb 26 being uninterrupted.

It will be readily observed that a wig 2 to be dried, when placed over annular flange 14, is supported thereby in a manner extremely conducive to safe and uniform drying. That is, in view of minimization of areas of direct contact between said wig and said lamp 1, and the remoteness of heat source 26 and said wig, burning hazards are obviated while uniform drying of the delicate and costly wig is accomplished.

By reason of the flared contour 18, of said upright portion 6, a chamber 42 is formed among wig 2, flange 14 and said flare 18, said chamber being furnished with moderately heated air flowing through apertures 20, said heated air originating through the cooperative heat exchange action of said blowing means and said illuminating bulb. Thus, through minimization of contiguity between lamp and wig, appreciable drying effectiveness is realized. That is, the cooperative effect of flange 14, flare 18 and of apertures 20 acting therebetween, and of the communicative relation among open end 8, and perforations 16 and 20, provide a device of novel character capable of etfectuating the aforesaid objectives in the manner disclosed herein.

Both the structural and operational characteristics of the invention having been described, it will be understood that the materials of construction may be synthetic or natural, metallic or non-metallic and that changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of parts from that disclosed herein without in any way departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of the attendant advantages thereof, provided, however, that such changes fall within the scope of the claims appended hereto.

What is claimed is:

1. A wig drying lamp comprised of a hollow base portion and an upright portion, said upright portion having open upper and lower ends, said lower end being removably seated within said base portion, said upper end having an annular flange disposed peripherally thereof, said flange being radially perforated, said upright portion having an annularly flared region positioned adjacently of said upper end, said region being slightly smaller in diametrical cross-section than said annular flange, a plurality of apertures within said annularly flared region, a socketsupporting-plate disposed between said base portion and said upright portion, said plate having circularly oriented apertures therewithin, a socket mounted upon said plate and an illuminating electric light bulb within said socket, blower means mounted within said base portion and upper end and a lower end removably seated with respect 1 to said base portion, said upper end having an annular flange disposed peripherally thereof, said flange having radially disposed elongate parallel perforations therethrough, said upright portion having an annularly flared region positioned adjacently of said upper end, said region being slightly smaller in diametrical cross-section than said annular flange, a plurality of apertures within said annularly flared region, a socket-supporting-plate Within said lamp and a socket mounted upon said plate, an illuminating electric light bulb Within said socket and'an elec- 44 tric motor having fan blades operatively associated therewith mounted Within said lamp, said fan blades being arranged to direct a forced flow of air contiguously with respect to said light bulb.
