Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 18, 1922.

Application filed November 9, 1920. Serial No. 422,765.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GUSTAV KoRITTKE, a citizen of Germany, residing at Long Island City, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sanitary Containers, of which the following is a specification.

The main object of this invention is to provide a sanitary container for rolls of paper such as towels, toilet-paper, etc, which will eliminate the danger of dirt or germs getting upon the paper, and which will provide for the removal from the roll of any desired length of paper.

The above and other objects will become apparent in the description below, in which like-named characters of reference refer to like-named parts in the drawings.

Referring briefly to the drawings, Fig. l is a perspective view of the device.

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view in elevation taken substantially on the line 2 2 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 3 is a front elevational view of the device, partly in section on the line 37-3.

of Fig. 2. I

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral 1 represents the rear wall of the container, having recessed eyelets 1 by means of which the device may be attached to a wall. The numeral 2 represents the top cover of the container, and 3 the side walls. The front wall of the container is indicated at 4, and is curved into conformity with the roll of aper to be contained within the device, belng at the same time pivotally attached to the side walls 3 by means of extending ears 8 having pins 8? passing through them and the upper ends of the wall 4, acting as pivots. The lower end of the wall 4 is secured to the wall 1 in the follow- Rods 14 are connected to ears 15 slidably mounted in a slot 16 and urged apart by a spring 17. Normally the pressure of the spring urges the outer ends of the rods against the flanged edges 1 of the wall 1, retaining the lower end of the wall 4 in place. In order to release the lower end, the ears 15 are forced together, withdrawing the rods from the edges 1, and allowing the entire wall 4 to be swung upward about the pivots 8 A drum 5 is mounted upon pins 6 resting in recesses 6 in the side walls 3, and upon the drum the roll of paper 10 is mounted. In the upper ends of the side walls 3 a shaft 20 is pivotally mounted, a substantially U- shaped rod 21 being rigid therewith and having pivotally mounted thereon a drum 13 which acts as a weight upon the roll 10 in order to prevent its loosening or unwinding.

The lower edge of the member 4 is provided with sharpened saw teeth 18 against which the paper 10 is adapted to be cut in order to remove a sheet of the desired length'from the containe A V-shaped recess 19 is provided on the lower edge of the wall 1 in order to permit the fingers to grasp the paper at all times.

Thus it is apparent that I have provided a sanitary container which will always insure the user of being the first to have his fingers on the paper which he is about to use, and will also prevent the paper from unrolling excessively and touching the floor.

I claim:

A roll paper container comprising a rigid frame, a hinged casing attached thereto, opposed spring latching means for holding said casing in normal position on said frame, releasing means therefor, a drum rotatable in the frame, said drum being adapted to carry a roll of paper, a weight roll bearing against said paper roll, lever arms pivoted in the sides of said frame for supporting said roll, serrated meansat the bottom edge of said'casing for erforating the paper, and means formed with said casing whereby the paper may be manually withdrawn.

In witness whereof I aflix my signature.
