CIGARETTE Filed May 51, 1933 Inventor Paul a Tfiavwas fl Horne y Patented Jan. 30, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Application May 31, 1
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in cigarettes, and has for one of its important objects to provide, in a manner hereinafter set forth, a cigarette embodying a 5 construction which is such that said cigarette may be produced at comparatively low cost.
The foregoing and other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of a cigarette constructed in accordance with the present invention.
Figure 2 is a view in vertical longitudinal section through the cigarette, taken substantially on the line 22 of Figure 1.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a main body which is designated generally by the reference numeral 1, said main body including a paper wrapper 2 which encloses the tobacco filler 3.
At one end, the main body is reduced, as at 4, the wrapper 2 terminating in an inturned flange 5. Abutting the flange 5 is a mouth-piece 6 of suitable material, preferably wood, said mouth-piece, of course, having a smoke passage 7 therein, the inner portion of said smoke passage being tapered, as at 8.
The inner end portion of the mouth-piece 6 is reduced, as at 9, corresponding to the diameter of the reduced end portion 4 of the main cigarette 5 body 1. The mouth-piece 6 and the main body portion 1 are secured together through the medium of a paper ring 10 which, of course, constitutes an annular coupling. The ring 10 is glued in the reduced adjacent end portions 4 and 9 933. Serial No. 673,746
of the main body portion 1, and the mouth-piece 6 of the cigarette. It will thus be seen that a novel construction and arrangement has been provided :for securing the mouth-piece to the cigarette, and it will further be seen that the main portion of the cigarette 1, the mouth-piece 6, and the coupling 10 are of the same external diameter. In other words, a cigarette of uniform diameter throughout has been provided.
It is believed that the many advantages of a cigarette constructed in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood, and although the preferred embodiment of the invention is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which may fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:
1. A cigarette comprising a paper wrapper and a filler, said wrapper including an inturned flange on one end, a mouth-piece having one end in abutting engagement with the flange, and a ring encircling the adjacent end portions of the cigarette and mouth-piece for coupling said mouthpiece to the cigarette.
2. A cigarette comprising a main body portion including a paper wrapper and a tobacco filler, said main body portion including a reduced end portion, an inturned flange on the corresponding end of the wrapper, a mouth-piece having a reduced end portion abutting the flange, said mouth-piece having a longitudinal smoke passage therein, and a coupling ring encircling the adjacent reduced end portions of the main body portion and the mouth-piece and secured thereto for coupling said main body portion and the mouth-piece together.
