Application filed mm 4, 1927. Serial No. 228,992.

This invention relates to improvements in dispensers and is directed particularly to dis ensers for perfume or the like.

n object of the invention is the provision of a dispenser having an inner metal perfume container and an outer non-metallic ornamental jacket to the end that such ornamental material, as celluloid or the like, may be employed for the jacket since it is not in contact with the perfume. Dispensers of the prior art have been made of metal which does not lend itself to decoration when it is desired to employ ornamentation in colors and as distinguished therefrom by providing the inner container, I am enabled to employ S such material for the jacket as is especially adapted to be colored as may be desired so as to provide a large variety of ornamental effects.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a dis enser which has a valve of novel construction to the end that the dispensing end of the device may be rubbed across the clothing or the like for applying perfume thereto. The dispenser of my invention has advantages over containers having a projecting pin on the valve thereof be- Fig. 1 is an elevational view of a dispenser I showing the manner in'which it may be ornamented; and

Fig. 2 is an enlarged longitudinal section therethrough showing the novel featuresof construction thereof.

Referring to the drawings in detail :A container is represented at 1 which ma consist of a tube like member that is a apted at its upper end'to receive a lower screw threaded hub 2 of a closure member 3. The closure member 3 is provided with a flange 4 which is preferably knurled or roughened so that it may be grasped between the fingers and either screwed into the container or removed therefrom to facilitate the filling thereof.

The closure hollowed out and provided with an o ening at the upper end thereof and a ball 5 w ich is urged upwardly by a spring 6 normally closes said opening. The spring 6 is supported by a washer 7 at its lower I non-metallic material desired but will pre erably be of celluloid or such material as readily lends itself to the application of colors so that it may be ornamented with designs of various colors and combinations of colors. A cap 11 is provided which may be of a material similar to that of the jacket and is interiorly screw threaded for screwing onto the threaded neck 12 of the closure 3 to thereby conceal the end of the closure. A ring 13 may be secured to the upper side of the cap if desired so that the dispenser may be suspended from a cord or the like as is customary with similar articles.

The jacket may be made to fit snugly on the container and if desired or necessary,

may be cemented or otherwise secured thereto so as to provide a unified structure. As will be noted, since the container for the perfume is of metal or the like, adapted to resist any chemical action of the perfume, the covering in the form of a jacket therefor may be of any non-metallic material inclined to be acted upon by the perfume. Also it will be observed that I have provided a valve structure which is adapted to emit perfume accordingly as the ball.thereof is rotated or depressed .which normally is adapted to prevent any of the liquid to leak from the container.

I am aware that many changes ma be made in'the form of the invention wit out threaded in the upper end of said container having a flange portionoverlying the upper ends of said container and jacket and provided with an upwardly extending neck por-' tion and a central axial bore therethrou h removably carried by theneck portion of said which terminates so as to form a seat at t e closure for concealin the same adapted to 10 upper end of said neck portion, a washer abut the upper side 0 the said flange therehaving a central opening therethrough seof.

5 cured in the lower end of said bore, a ball In testimony whereof I have affixed my abutting said seat, a spring interposed besignature. tween said ball and washer for urgin said ball against said seat and a non-metallic cap FRANK LE BOEUF.
