June 2, 1931. J. H. HOSIER CIGARETTE DISPENSER Filed Feb. 6 .193Q

JOHN/[HOMER .NVENTO'R ATTORNEY WITNESS Patented June 2, 1931 UNITED STATES,

JOHN H. Rosina, or RoAnoKE, VIRGINIA' a .1 a

CIGARETTE nrsrnnsnn Application filed February 6, 19eo. sei a1 a... 426,354. H

My present invention has reference to a cigarette dispensing apparatus and my object is the provision of an extremely simple, cheaply constructed, ornamental but thoroughly efficient device whereby cigarettes can be singly dispensed.

To the attainment of the foregoing the invention consists in the improvement hereinafter described and definitely claimed.

In the drawings:

Figure l is a substantially central vertical transverse sectional view through the improvement.

Figure 2 is a similar view but showing the device operated to dispense a single cigarette.

Figure 3 is .a top plan view thereof.

Figure 4 is a bottom plan view thereof.

The improvement can, of course, be constructed of any desired size and material and also the container portion of the improvement may have arranged therein a paper container for cigarettes, wherebythe same can be easily arranged in the device.

Essentially the improvement comprises a hollow base 1. On this base at suitable points from the ends thereof there is a pair of spaced plates 2. These plates have their upper edges inclined or cut at a curvature, as indicated by the numeral 3. Each of the plates has, adjacent to its rear end a stop lug 4am adjacent to its forward end each of the plates 2 is formed with a round depres sion 4' that merges into an upstanding arched fin er 5.

Prefera 1y secured to the top of the base 1, outwardly with respect to the plates 2 there are upright plates in the nature of standards 6, and pivotally secured, as at 7, between these pair of standards there ,is the box-like container 8 for the cigarettes 9. Obviously the container may have its'top open or the said top may be provided with a closure whereby the cigarettes 9 can be arranged therein. The cigarettes rest one over the other and the bottom cigarette rests on the inclined curved ed es 3 of the plates 2.

ecured to a clip or like element 10 on the back of the container 8 there is an arm 9. The arm passes through a suitable opening in the base 1 and has an angle or ofl'set end 10 which: is .journaled through a bearing 12 on the underfac'e ofthe base 1. This oifset end is indicated for distinction by the numeral 13 and merges into a straight extension 14: and the said extension in turn merges into an upright end 15 that passes through a suitable opening inthe top of the base 1 and is provided with a head 16.

' Aspring 17, suitably secured to the under face of the base 1, exerts a tension against 0 the arm l4 to normallyhold the headed end 16 thereof in elevated position.

The container 8 is sustained at an angle, as disclosed by Figure 1 of the drawings, .1 when in inoperative position. Obviously a downward pressure upon the headed end 16 of the rod will cause the container to swing to the position disclosed by Figure 2 and when in such position a single cigarette will be deposited in the grooves 4 that afford the' m pockets for the reception of such cigarettes and the outward movement of the container is limited by the contact thereof with the inner face or edge of the hook-like exten- SlOII 5. V

The construction and advantages of the device will, it is thought, be apparent to those skilled in the art to which such invention relates sothat further description will not be required; v v

Having described the invention, I claim:

1. A base having uprights thereon, acontainer for cigarettes having an open bottom I pivotally secured to the base and which cigarettes are arranged one over another,

guides having arouate faces on which the open bottom of the container rests and having their'outer inclined portions provided with depressions affording pockets and means for swinging the container to bring the same over the pockets, said means including a rod which is loosely connected to the rear of the container, having an offset end which is pivotally secured to the base and having an extension that merges into an 5 upright portion that is provided with a head.

2. A base having uprights thereon, a container for cigarettes having an open bottom pivotally secured to the base and which cigarettes are arranged one over another, 109

guides having arcuate faces on which the open bottom of the container rests and having their outer inclined portions provided with depressions affording pockets and 5 means for swinging the container to bring the same over the pockets, said means includ ing a rod which is looselyrconnected touthe rear-of the container, having an ofi'set 'end whichis pivotally secured to the base and r having an extension that merges into an upright portion that is providedcwithnia head and said guides having inner stop members for sustaining the container at an-angle-and outer stop members ina line with the pockets for holding the container over theipockets.

In vtestimony whereof I aflix my signature. r M r JOHN H. HOSIER
