J. M. MERRILL ASH RECEIVER Filed Feb. 15, 1927 INVENTOR.
Patented June 12, 1928.
UNITED STATES JOSEPH M. MERRILL, F MONTGLAIR, NEW JERSEY.
Application filed February 15, 1927. Serial No. 168,278.
My inventionrelates to an improved ash receiver and my object is to provide a device of the character referred to which can be constructed cheaply, which is of artistic appearance, which can be cleaned readily and which may readily be identified by initials,
a monogram or by other evidence of ownership.
In order that .the invention may be Well understood attention is directed to the accompanying drawing, forming part of this specification, and in which:
Figure l is a plan View of my improved ash receiver; and
Figure 2 a section thereof.
In both of these views corresponding parts are represented by the same reference nuinerals.
The body 1 is formed of sheet metal, preferably spun, with flaring sides as shown and having a flange 2 at the bottom. The edge 3 is turned over as shown and to this edge is soldered a support a for a cigar or cigarette. The bottom of the receiver comprises a sheet or plate 5 made of glass or metal and a sheet or plate 6 made of glass so as to be transparent, witha disk of cardboard or paper 7 between the plates, said cardboard carrying initials or a monogram as shown in Fig.
1. The bottom is put in place by means of a a0 flanged ring 8 engaging the inner walls of the body 1 by friction.
It will be seen that the bottom as a whole may be readily removed for the purpose of introducing the paper disk 7 in place, after which the parts may be easily reassembled.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new therein and desire to secure by Letters Patent is as follows:
An ash receiver comprising a flared body and a lower flange for supporting a removable bottom, said bottom comprising a transparent upper plate, a lower plate and an intermediate sheet carrying an indication of ownership, said plates and sheet being held together and in position at the bottom of said ash receiver by a flanged frame, the sides of which are in frictional engagement with the inside of the flared body adjacent the lower flange, substantially as set forth.
JOSEPH M. MERRILL.
