Application filed March 26, 1914:.
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known thatl, @Tre B. WUNscHow, a citizen of the lUnited States, residing at Chattanooga, in the county of Hamilton and State of Tennessee, have invented new and useful Improvementsjin Perfume-Distributers, of which the following is a specication.
My invention relatesto a perfume distributer and has as its principal object the provisionl of a cheap and convenient device for the purpose mentioned.
A further object of my invention resides in the particular karrangement and combination of partb hereinafter described.
lln the accompanying drawings :-`-lE`igure 1 isa central vertical sectional view of my improved perfume distributer. Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the device shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of the de vice shown in lEIig. l. Figs. 4, 5 and 6 are sectional views of portions of the device shown in Fig. 1. lFig.'7 shows .my device as arranged for use in combination with a Ventilating fan of the ordinary type.
In the separate views the same part is designated by the same reference character.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 is the base of an electric fan such as 2 which is provided with a guard 3 and wire arms such as 1. .Mounted between two adjacent arms 4 is one of my perfume distributers 5.
Referring more particularly to, Figs. 1 to 6 inclusive, the distributer 5 comprises a body portion 6 of generally cylindrical shape integral with which is a rear end such as 7 having perforations such as 8. 'llhe end 7 projects as shown at 9 forming a flange at the rear end of the body 6. ll provide a rear cover such as 10 the edge of which is bent around the flange 9 as shown at 11 so that the cover is securely held to the body but which permits ,the cover to turn readily on the rear end. The cover 10 is perforated as shown at 12 and by turning the rear cover, the perforations 8 and 12 can be broughtinto register.
lntegral with the rear cover 10 is a han-`Y dle 13 which projects forwardly as shown in Fig. 1 so that the rear cover 10 can be carried without danger from the blades of the fan.
rfhe device is provided also with a front end piece 14C which is apertured as shown at Speccation of Letters Patent.
.understood that the Patented Mar. 9, 1915.. serial No. 827,509.
15 and which has two integral Hanges 16 and 17. The iiange 16 is adapted to swing over the end of the body portion 6 so as to hold the front end in position on the body. The fiange 17 pnojects outwardly from the cover in the same plane therewith and affords means for holding in place the front cover 18 which is seated over the flange 17 as shown at 19 in such a way as to be rotatable thereon.
rlhe front cover has perforations 20-20 which are registrable with the perforations 15 when the cover is turned into the proper position. rIhe interior of the device 5 as shown is filled with cotton, felt or other suitable `material 21 .which has been saturated with perfume or antiseptic oil, and-it will be distribution of the odor is controlled by the opening and closing of the front and back covers.
Referring more particularly to Figs. 1 and 4, it will be seen that the body 6 of the device 5 is provided with a groove 22 adjacent the rear cover and it will be ob-` vious from an inspection of F ig. 7 that the device can be placed between two radial wires of the guard 3 so as to be held by the groove 22 when sob desired. By this arrangement the draft of the fan will blow partly through the device 5, the amount of flow being readily controlled by the covers 10 and 18, the rear cover 10 being used principally to control the amount of blast admitted .to the device 5 and the front cover 18 being used to control the exit of perfume. It will be obvious alsovthat the device can be adapted for use on ceiling fans.
1t will be obvious from the foregoing that l have devised an article which can be used for distributing perfume in theaters and and other public places with the utmost convenience and eliciency, as well as one which 'can be used for fumigating purposes.
Having thus described my invention, what claim is 1. The combination with a fan, of a Wire guard therefor, and a perforated container having an external groove for engaging the wire of said guard, said container having also a perforated rear cover arranged to be rotated on the containerand the perforations of which may be brought into register with the perforations of the container, said rear cover having a forwardly projecting handle whereby the same may be turned without danger from the fan blades.
2. The combination with a fan, of a wire guard therefor, and a perforated container having an external groove for engaging the wire of said\- guard, said container having alsol a perforated rear cover arranged to be rotated on the container and the perforations of which may be brought into reg-v ister with the perforations of the container, said rear cover having'a forwardly projectinghandle whereby the same may be turned without danger from `the fanv blades, said container also having a perforated front cover rotatably mounted thereon.
3. A perfume container comprising in combination, a body of generally cylindrical outline and provided with lfront and rear end wallshaving perforations therein, and perforated front and rear covers the perforations of whichl may be brought into register with those of the end walls, said end walls having flanges attheir edges and said covers being seated over said flanges whereby the covers and end walls are attached one to the other, but the covers are permitted to rotate.
. A. A perfume container comprising in combination, a bod of generally cylindrical outline and provi ed with front and rear end walls having perforatons therein, and perforated front and rear covers the perforations of which may be brought into reg- A ister with those of the end Wallsysaid end walls having'anges at their edges and said matteo? covers being seated over said flanges whereby the covers and end walls are attached one to the other, but the covers are permitted to rotate, said front wall being separable from the body of the device and having a tached one to the other, but the covers are` permitted to rotate, said front wall being separable from the body of the device and having a laterally projecting flange adapted to swing over the end of the body of the device to normally hold the front end in place, and a forwardly projecting handle ri idly secured to said rear cover.
