IMPROVEMENT IN SMELLING AND PERFUME BOTTLES.
Spccification forming part of Letters Patent No. 178,3 l8, dated June 13, 1876 application filed April 24, 1876.
To all whom at may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY WARNER, of Boston, in the county .of Sufiolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Smelling and Perfume Bottles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable Others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
In the said drawing, Figure 1- denotes a combined smelling and perfume bottle embodying my improvements; Fig. 2, a central and longitudinal section of the same; Fig. 3, a side view of one of the bottles; Fig. 4, a top view of the same. Figs. 5 and 6 are side and top views of the valve. Fig. 7 is an elevation of the cage or spring-holder.
My invention relates to improvements in the construction of bottles for holding perfumes, pungent volatile matter, &c.; and consists in the peculiar construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawing, A A denote two bottles or receptacles, having their bodies formed of glass, and of a cylindrical or other desirable form, each of such bottles having a metallic thimble or ring, B, cemented to its neck, a cap, 0, screwing upon the-outer end of the ring. Within the ring B is a hollow cylindrical opensided cage, a, having an annular shoulder or flange, b, projecting outwardly from its upper end, and resting upon the top edge of the glass neck, such cage extending down into the interior ofthe bottle, and having an annular shoulder, 0, extending inwardly from its lower end, a coiled wire orspring, d, being inserted in the cage, and having its lower end or coil resting upon the lower shoulder c of the cage. D is a disk or valve, having a cylindrical stem, 0, extending from its upper face, and through an opening, f, made centrally through the cap 0. The lower face of the disk has a flat shank,
9, extending down, axially therefrom, the up-,
per part of such shank having a width corresponding with the internal diameter of the cage. h h are two shoulders, formed on the force the valve D, when the screw-cap O is in place, closely against a hollow leather washer or packing, a, arranged. around a chamber, 1,
formed in the under surface of the cap, as shown in the drawing; or, instead of the de-- tachable metallic cage, the same may be formed of glass, as an integral part of the bottle.
The chamber 1 of the cap is formed with any desirablenumber of oriflces,m, disposed around the stem-receivin g neck of the cap. The shank g of the valve extends down into the interior of the bottle to any desirable extent, the object of such being to disturb or break up the contents of the bottle in case such may have become consolidated; or, in case a sponge may be employed to absorb and hold the fluid in the bottle, to compress the sponge, so as to cause it to give out more or less ofits volatile or fluid contents.
In forming the duplex bottle, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, each of the bottles is formed with an annular dovetailed shoulder, k, around its lower part. The annular shoulder of one of the bottles is next to be filled with plaster-ofparis, and one end of a metallic ring, E, having a width equal to the combined width of the two shoulders of the bottles, is placed on the bottle, and around the shoulder, filled with the cement, and-pressed into the proper position therein. The bottle is next set aside to allow the cement to become set. This havin g been effected, the shoulder of its fellow bottle is to be filled with the cementing material, and its bottom covered with a thin coating of the same. This latter bottle is next to have its lower end inserted in the ring with its bottom abutting against its fellow. The parts are spring-valve forms a perfect automatic packing to thecap'orifices, so thatnolfluidlorscent can escape until the valve is moved downward which is effected by simply placing the thumb or finger of a persons hand on the topof thc stem e,- which will not only depress the shank 9 into the substance contained in the bottle,
but allow the fluid or odor to freely escapethrough the orifices in the cap, while the pressure may remain on the stem of the valve.. As soon, as the thumb or finger is removed, the
resilientaction of the spring will at once seal.
Having described myinvention; what I claim 1sa 1. The combination, with the body A, provided with the ring B, of the screw-cap O,
formedwith the valve-stern openingf and the orifices m, the valve D, provided with the stem 6 and shank g, and the spring d, the whole being arranged to operate substantially asset forth.
2. The duplex bottle, as described, the same
