To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EARL Gr. Wernous, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Liquid- Soap Dispensing Devices, of which the following is aspecification.

My invention relates to a dispenser for liquid soap and the object thereof is to. provide a simple and, efficient device of this character. The construction is compare; tively simple and capable of ready assembling and disassembling, particularly removal of the liquidcontainer or receptacle for the purpose of replenishing the supply of soap and moreover the-operation-is simple and at all times reliable.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a central vertical section of my device; Fig. 2 a front elevation thereof, particularly in section and on a smaller scale than in Fig. 1; and Fig.3 a bottom plan view of the cap of the'container or receptacle. v 7

Referring to the particular embodiment of my invention as shown in the drawing, the

base or supporting member 1 is provided with a screw-threaded stem 2 which passes through the support 3 which may be the plate or slab of a basin. This base is -at-' tached or clamped-to the support by means of the nut 4 screwingagainst the washer 5 interposed between-it and the lower face of the support or plate 3. The base 1 is hollow and receives the combined spout which is movable vertically in the base, the button portion being indicated at 6 and the spout portion 7. v

The liquid container or receptacle 8. which may be of any desired shape but preferably the pear-shape shown, is supported from the shank 2 through the medium ofthe wire 9 and the cap 10. This cap is screw-threaded upon the shank 2 and provided with depending marginal flanges 10 which overlap the top edges of the receptacle and which are provided at opposite sides with openings 10. These openings are adapted to receive the bent ends 9" of the wire 9. This wire encircles the body portion of the receptacle and the free ends are connected with the cap 10 as just described, but is not in contact therewith except at the bottom whereat it is normally retained in the groove 8. By prefer- Y ush button and ence a washer or gasket 11 is interposed be tween the top edges of the receptacle and the cap 10. According to this construction the liquid receptacle can be readily removed from the remainder of the fixture and can be readily attached thereto, it being understood that by springing in the opposite sides of the wire 9, the same becomes elongated and thereby released from the bottom of the receptacle with the result that the latter is free to be removed.

. The'stem 2 also carries the pump mechanism which comprises the pump cylinder 12, piston 13 reciprocable therein and hollow pistonrod 14 which extends vertically and is connected at its upward end to the spout 7. The "cylinder 12 is supported by the stem 2 by means of the tube 15 which is screwthreadedat itsopposite ends to the stem 2 a and the cylinder 12 respectively. The pump cylinder is provided with a bottom opening 16 which iscontrolled by a check valve 17 which is here in the form of a ball. The piston is normally upwardly pressed by means of a spring 18'interposed betwee'n'the lower face of the piston and the bottom of the pieton'chamber.

The piston chamber is normally filledwith liquid soap and upon the depression of the button 6 andgspout 7 by the pressure of the operators hand thereon the piston 13 is moved=1downwardly against the tension of the spring 18 and the soap therein is'forced- .upwardly through the piston and piston rod 14 and out through its spout-shaped end and thereby 'dispensedfor the operator or user.

7 When the operator permits the button 6 to move upwardly a new supply or charge of [liquid soap is drawn upwardly through the inlet 16, the check valve 17 permitting such flow of soap into the piston chamber. The

device is now ready for the next depression continues until sufiicient soap has been dispensed. Thepipe 15 is provided with-a port of the buttonga'nd spout and thisoperation' made in shape of the receptacle to permit v pumping from the, bottom, thereof. More over, my construction permits the spout and operating button to be arranged on one side of the support and the receptacle on the other side and out of sight.

I claim:

1. A liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base portion havinga stem, a 001m bined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion, a liquid soap receptacle removably secured to and supported by the stem, a pump arranged in such receptacle and including a hollow piston rod extending portion and arranged on the other side of the support, and pump mechanism arranged within the receptacle and communicating with said spout.

3. In combination with a suitable support, a liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base portion having a stem extending through the support and clamped thereto, a

combined button and spout movably mounted on and supported by such base portion and arranged on one side of the support, a liquid soap receptacle removably connected with said stem and arranged on the other side of the support, and pump mechanism arranged within the receptacle and communicating with said spout.

4:. In combination with a suitable support, a liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base. portion having a stem extending through the support and clamped thereto, a combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion and arranged on one side of the support, a cap removably connected with said stem, a wire frame connected with the cap, a liquid soap receptacle arranged Within the wire frame and having its top closed by the cap, said receptacle be ing arranged on the other side of the support, and pump mechanism arranged within the receptacle and communicating with said spout.

'5. A liquid soap dispensing device comprisin a base po'rtionhaving a stem, 2. combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion, a liquid soap receptacle, a cap therefor attached to the stem, a wire frame passing around the body of the receptacle and having its free ends connected with masses the cap, and pump mechanism arranged in- 6. liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base portion having a stem, a combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion a liquid soap receptacle, a cap therefor attached to the stem, a wire frame passing around the body of the receptacle and having its free ends connected with the cap, said frame contacting the receptacle only at the bottom thereof, and pump mechanism'arranged in such receptacle and communicating with said spout.

7. A liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base portion having a stem, a combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion, a liquid soap receptacle, a cap therefor attached to the stem, a wire frame passing around the body of the receptacle and having its free ends connected with the cap, said receptacle having on its bottom a groove in which the wire frame is normally held, such frame being free of the receptacle at other points, and pump mechanism arranged insuoh receptacle and communicating with said spout.

'8. A liquid soap dispensing device co1nprising a base portion having a stem, a combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion, a liquid soap receptacle, a .cap therefor attached to the stem and having marginal flangesprovided with holes on opposite sides, a Wire passing around the body of the receptacle and having its free ends bent and arranged to enter said holes, and pump mechanism arranged in such receptacle andcommunicating with said spout.

9. A liquid soap dispensing device comprising a base portion having a stem, a combined button and spout movably mounted in such base portion, a liquid soap receptacle removably secured to and supported by the stem, a pump arranged in such receptacle and including a pump cylinder arranged near the bottom, of the receptacle and having a check valved inlet, a piston reciprocable in such cylinder, a hollow piston rod having one end extending through the piston and having its outer end communicating with said spout, and means for holding the piston and spout in upward position with a yielding pressure.
