to the air in the immediate vicinity Fof-the' holder. a

One of the more prominent objects of the present invention is to provide a holder hav ing the semblance and beauty of a natural flower or blossom and which may be worn as a boutonnierc in the corsage, cloak or hair, as may be preferred, and which will constantly exude a delicate fragrance such as the natural flower may have or any other selected odor.

A further feature is in the provision of means for replenishing the holder with a fresh supply of the perfume when the same becomes exhausted.

Another purpose is. to produce a holder completely concealed in the heart of a flower, which is provided with petals, calyx and stem arranged and colored in all respects to simulate a flower of the variety selected.

These several artistic and utilitarian objects are fully accomplished by the ornamental design, practical construction and combination of parts hereinafter described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, constituting an important part of this disclosure, and in which Figure 1 is a sectional view of a conventional artificial flower showing an embodiment of the invention as contained therein.

Figure 2 is a side elevational view of the holder, drawn to an enlarged scale, having part-s broken away and others in section to clearly show the construction.

Figure 3 is a top plan view of the same.

Figure 4 is a bottom plan View thereof.

As shown in Figure 1, the device consists of a stem 10, made of twisted strands of any suitable material, of any desired color and of such length as may be preferred.

The upper portion of the stem is expanded to form a conical chamber 11, then contracted to constitute a neck 12 leading to a calyx covering 13 terminating in an outstanding annular flange 14:.

The flange is connected with a group of flexible outer petals 15 and a similar group of flexible inner petals 16 of lesser dimensions, all these several elements constituting an artificial flower of such size, shape and coloring as may be preferred The holder is composed of a cup-like body 17 shaped exteriorally to represent the calyx :or seed'pod of the flower, cylindrical at its upper portion, and containing a small chamber 18 in its open upper end.

The lower end of the body 17 is contracted to c'onstitutea throat 19 and extending therebclow is a conical element 20, partially flattened-on two opposite sides 21 and provided with spaced transverse perforations 22.

snugly fitted to the upper cylindrical por' tion of the body 17 is an annular flange 23 formed on an overhanging cap 2% having a concave-convex upper surface through which a plurality of fine perforations 25 are dis posed over the chamber 18, to which is sup plied a quantity of perfume 26 in semi-solid form.

The cap is held in place on the body by reason of a pin, or integral indentation 27, engaging in an angularly disposed slot 28 in the wall of the body 17, acting in the manner of a bayonet joint device, in addition to its friction on the body, and formed through the overhanging edge of the cap are several openings 29.

In assembling the holder in the heart of the flower the cone 20 is entered in the stem chamber 11 and the body 17 into the calyx cover 13; the wall of the stem chamber is secured by stitches 30 passed through the perforations 22 and another set of stitches 31, passing through the openings 29 in the rim of the cap, hold the stem flange 14 and lower edge of the petals 15 and 16 securely to the cap 24:, which, as noted, is removably engaged to the calyx body over the perfume.

Obviously the odor, rising from the perfume, passes outwardly through the cap perforations 25 within the circle of thepetals, rendering the device effective in performance and realistic in appearance.

Although the foregoing is descriptive of the best known embodiment of this invention, it will be understood that minor changes may be made within the scope of the appended claims, which conform to the general disclosure herein indicated.

Having thus described my invention and set forth the manner of-its construction and use, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A perfume holder comprising a chant bered body, a perforate cap on said body, co operating pm and slot connections ,therebe tw'ii; ii eevemag for said bet-.13 insects-g a stem, and groups of flexible petals secured circumferentla'lly on said cap; to obscure said body.
