CHARLES N. CORYELL, OF MAJVIARONECK, NEW YORK.

LIPSTICK CONTAINER.

Application filed December 27, 1923. Serial No. 682,913.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES N. CORYELL,

a citizen of the United States, and resident of Mamaroneck, in the county of WVestchester and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Lipstick Containers, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to holders for lipsticks or other stick material and the objects of the invention are to provide a device of this character of simple, inexpensive construction and made up of but few and easilyassembled parts; which can be pro- 5 duced in an attractive, convenient form and which will operate both toadvance and to retract the stick, positively and without twisting or turning the stick.

In the accompanying drawing forming 2 part of this specification, an embodiment of the invention is illustrated wherein the desired results are attained by a novel construction, combination and relation of parts hereinafter described and claimed.

Figure 1 in the drawing is a side View of the holder in closed condition.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same.

Figure 3 is a View with the cover removed and the lipstick fully extended, the outer casing and the cap being shown in section. Figure 4 is a cross sectional view as taken on substantially the plane of line 44 of Figure 2. The body of the holder consists of a tubular casing shown in the form of a cylindrical sleeve 5 open at both ends and shouldered at one end at 6420 receivethe detachable cap or top 7.

Rotatab-ly engaged within the case is a sleeve 8 having a helical guideway or cam slot 9 formed therein and attached to or carried by the lower end of this cam sleeve there is provided a suitable knob or finger-hold shown as a cap or thimble 10. This cap may be and preferably is a duplicate of the cover cap 7 but unlike that cap it is not intended to be detached and is fixed on the lower end of the cam sleeve, for instance, by forcing it thereover with a drive fit, far enough to substantially meet the lower end of the case at 11 and thus form in effect a relatively rotatable extension completing the lower end of the case.

The helical guide or cam slot operates as a coarse screw for advancing and retracting the carrier and may consist as shown of a single convolution extended sustantially the full length of the sleeve.

The cam or screw sleeve has a rotating fit over and about a guide sleeve 12, within which the stick carrier 13 travels. This guide sleeve is fixed at its upper end to the upper end of the case at 14 and at its lower and has a relatively rotatable connection with the screw sleeve, said connection bein shown as a tubular extension 15 on the close lower end of the guide sleeve extending freely through an opening in the closed lower end of the screw sleeve and turned over after the manner of a tubular rivet to confine these parts against longitudinal separation while permitting the outer sleeve to rotate freely over the inner sleeve.

A non-rotating longitudinal travel of the carrier is effected within the inner non-rotating guide sleeve by constructing said sleeve with a substantially straight longitudinal guide or slot 16 and providing the carrier with a pin or lug 17 which projects through said slot into the screw slot 9 in the outer rotatable sleeve.

In use, after the cover cap is removed, the stick may be projected as far as desired by simply turning the lower cap with respect to 35 the body of the case, rotation being thereby imparted to the screw sleeve, which by engagement with the projecting pin of the carrier traveling in the straight slot in the guide sleeve, shifts the carrier outward without turning thesame. A reverse rotation of the handle cap retracts the stick carrier, also without rotating the same. This non-rotation of the stick in its advancing and retracting movements is advantageous in that it prevents rotative rubbing and cutting of the stick against the slotted tube, which would cause gumming of the parts and presents the same side of the stick to the user, instead of twisting the stick with ,each advancing movement.

The guide sleeve may be fixed to the case in the same manner that the turning cap is fixed on'the screw sleeve, that is, by means of a simple drive fit and in order that this connection may be a secure and permanent one, the upper end of the guide sleeve may be slightly thickened or be made of slightly greater diameter, as indicated at 18, so that in forcing the upper end of the case over the end of the uide sleeve, the parts will firmly seize and lock together.

a-ting knobs, those applied to the cases fitting detachably and those applied to the sleeves making rigid engagement therewith. The relative inclination of the slots in the two sleeves is such as to produce an easy sliding movement of the drive lug of the carrier and the swivel connection between the closed 1 lower ends of the sleeves, centers the sleeves one within the other and further insures a smooth positive action of the parts.

What I claim is:

1. In a holder of the character disclosed, a case, a sleeve rotatably mounted within 4 said case provided with a helical shoulder, a

carrier within said sleeve having a drive lug engaging said helical shoulder, a guide carried by the case for directing the carrier in a substantially straight non-rotative movement within the case upon rotation of the sleeve within the case, means for rotating the helically shouldered sleeve within the case, said guide being a tube fixed at one end to the case and swivelly connected at its opposite end to the rotatable sleeve.

2. In a holder of the character disclosed, a case, a sleeve rotatably mounted within said case provided with a helical shoulder, a carrier within said sleeve having a drive lug engaging said helical shoulder, a guide carried b the case for directing the carrier in a su stantially straight non-rotative movement within the case upon rotation of the sleeve within the case, means for rotating the helically shouldered sleeve within the case, caps for said holder, said caps being substantial duplicates of one another and one detachably enga ed over one end of the case and the other fixed to the sleeve, at the opposite end of the case.

3. In a holder of the character disclosed, a case, a sleeve rotatably mounted within said case provided with a helical shoulder, a carrier within said sleeve having a drive lug engaging said helical shoulder, a guide carried by the case for directing the carrier in a substantially straight non-rotative movement within the case upon rotation of the sleeve within the case, means for rotating the helically shouldered sleeve within the case, the case being shouldered at its opposite ends, duplicate end caps, one detachably engaged over the shouldered portion at one end of the case asa cover and the other -fixed on the sleeve and in rotative relation to the shoulder at the opposite end of the case.
