Application led April 19, 1926. Serial No. 103,092.
The object of my invention is to provide a novel lipstick holder having a semi-automatic. meansl for adjusting the position of the lip stick and the holder and also to provide a novel means for controlling the position of the lip stick in the holder. A further object of my invention is to provide a device of this character which will be attractive in appearance, I attain these and other objects of my invention by the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings,
in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of my invention;
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section through the outer casing 1;
Fig. 3 is an end view from the chain end;
Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section through the inner casing 2;
Fig. 5 is a section on line 5-5 of Fig. 4;
, lig. 6 is a section on line 6-6of Fig. 4;
Fig. 7 is an end view of a lipstick holder, having a modified form of cha-1n.
Like numerals indicate like parts in each of the several views.
Referring to the accompanying drawings,l
I provide a suitable outer casing 1, open at one end and closed at the other end, this casing preferably being elliptical in cross section. Iti may, however be of any desired sha in cross section. I provide a correspondingly shaped and telescoping inner case 2 in which a thimble 5 is slidably mounted. A
suitable lip stick 6 has one end engaged in the thimble 5 and is sli htly smaller in cross section than the bore o? inner casing 2 so as to be freely slidable in said casing.
I provide a suitable spring 10 seated in the closed end of the inner casing 2 and having one end of the springbearingagainst the end of the casing while the other end bears against the closed end of the thimble 5 thus tending to push the thimble and the lip stick outwardly.
I provide a suitable lineal element 7 attached to the thimble. This lineal element may have beads 8 forming a bead-like chain, as shown in Fig. 4; or it is within the contemplation of my invention to substitute a conventional chain 12, such as shown in Fig. 7. I provide a suitable large bead 9 on the end of the lineal element 7 or of chain 12. Casing l2 is provided with a narrow slot 3 in the.closed end of suicient width to receive the lineal element 7 (or alternate links of chain 12) but too narrow to allow the bead 8 to pass through same. I provide an enlarged portion 4 of sufficient diameter to permit the bead 8 as well as lineal element 7 to pass through (or to permit' all of the links of the chain 12 to pass through). The end bead 9, however, is too large to pass through the enlarged slotted portion 4. I.
may, if desired, provide a longitudinal slot 11 in inner casing 2 to permit of the insertion of any implement for pushing the thimble out should the lip stick `or thimble become stuck. However, this element is not an essential element.
The operation of the device will be apparent from Fig. 1 of the drawings. The beaded lineal element or chain as in the position shown in Fig. 1 and Fig. 7 locks the thimble and the lipstick in retracted position within inner casing 2. To allow the thimble and lip stick to be pressed outwardly in the direction indicated b the arrow in Fig. 4 the chain or beaded lineal element is pulled to a position longitudinal with the casing so that the bead 8 or link 12 may readily pass through the enlarged slotted portion 4 for the length of.one or two links or beads when the member 7 or 12 is pulled again to the position shownin Fig. l, locking the spring against further operation. As will be readily understood, the device is conveniently and quickly operated; is semi-automatic in its operation: is cheaper to manufacture than the swivel type of holder andcan be made in an elliptical or other required shape, whereas in the swingable type of lip stick holder it must be substantially cylindrical. This is an advantage, 1
inasmuch as a lip stick holder which is ellip-f tical,vtriangular or square is not.l as bulky as the round type of holder. The cost of manufacture of this novelty is also less than the lcost of manufacture of the swivel type of holder.
In 4the following claims the term chain shall be construed as applying to both ofthe forms of the device illustrated in the drawings.
- What I claim is:
1. Ina lip stick holder, the combination of an outer casing of any desired shape 1n vcross section, an inner casing correspondingly shaped in cross section and telescoping in the outer casing, said inner caslng having 4a slotted end, a portion of said slot being narrow and the remainder enlarged,
a thimble slidably mounted in the inner casing and adapted to hold a lip stick, a spring bearing against said thimble and tending to push the thimble outwardly, a chain attached to the thimble and of suitable size so that portions of the chain will pass through the narrow portion of the slot and other portions will not pass through and will thus hold the thirnble in locked relation to the inner casing.
2. In a lip stick holder, the combination of an outer casing, an inner casing telescopically mounted in the outer casing, means for holding a lip stick slidably mounted in the inner casing, resilient means mounted in the inner casing tending to ress the lip stick-holding element toward tile open end of the inner casing, said inner casing having a slot in its closed end, a chain passing through the slot and attached to the lip stick holding' means, and means for fastening the chain in any desired adjusted position opposed to the tension of the resilient element for the purpose of adjusting the position of the lip stick.
3. In a lip stick holder, the combination of telescoping casing members, a lip stick slidably mounted in the inner casing, resilient means tending to press the lip stick outwardly relative tothe open end of the inner casing, the inner casing having a slot in its closed end, said slot having an enlarged portion and a chain slidable through the enlarged portion but not slidablel through the rest of the slot whereby, together with the resilient means, to control the position of the lip stick relative to the inner casing.
