A. JANER CONTAINER FOR COSMETIC STICKS AND THE LIKE Filed April 26, 1934 Andre Janer Patented Feb. 5, 1935 UNITED (STATES 1,990,031 CONTAINER FOB COSMETIC STICKS AND THE LIKE Andre Janer, Flushing, N. Y.)

assignor to The Incorporated, New York,

N. Y., a corporation of New York Application April .26,

Claim.

This invention relates to containers for holding and feeding sticks or pencils of cosmetic materials, such, for example,'as lipsticks and the like.

The aim of the invention is to provide a container of this sort having various features of novelty and advantage and which is particularly characterized by its extreme simplicity in construction which makes for ease in assembly and economy in manufacture.

By proceeding in accordance with the present invention, a container is provided having a relatively few number of inexpensive parts which may be assembled with facility, the assembly being maintained in a very simple and effective manner.

Other objects will be in part obvious and in part pointed out more in detail hereinafter.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combination of elements and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter set forth and the scope of the application of which will be indicated in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawing, wherein is shown on]: embodiment which the present invention may Figure 1 is a side elevational view of the complete container;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal central sectional view on an enlarged scale through the container;

Fig. 3 is an exploded view showing, in perspective, the parts through which the lipstick is fed or advanced;

Fig. 4 is a view taken substantially on line 4--4 of Big. 2, this view showing the lower end of the casing with the operating knob removed; and

Fig. 5 is a transverse sectional 'view.taken on line 5-5 of Fig. 2 and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Referring to the drawing in detail, designates a casing which may beof any suitable size and shape but which is preferably cylindrical. The casing may be formed of any suitable material but, by preference, it is made of a moldable materiaLsuch as celluloid, casein, or the'like. The

upper end fof-the casing is of reduced diameter and is externally threaded as at 11. 12 designates a cover or cap having internal threads at its open end adapted to cooperate with the external threads 11. Upon the in rior periphery of the casing are two spiral groo & or threads 13 which extend from the lower end of the casing, as will be seen from Fig. 4, to a point short of the upper end of the casing. The casing, at the upper end wardiy facing shoulder 14.

The numeral 15 designates generally a rotatable shell mounted within the casing and having, at diametrically opposite sides, longitudinally extending slots 16. This shell or tube, by preference,

of the threads, has an internal downv 1934, Serial No. 722,418

is formed by drawing a metal blank to the desired shape, and it has a bottom wall 17 provided with a centrally disposed polygonal opening 18, the opening, in the present instance, being square. When the shell is within the casing, the upper end of the shell engages the shoulder 14 and the bottom wall of the shell is slightly above the lower end of the casing, as shown most clearly in Fig. 2.

The numeral 20 designates generally a cylindrical cup-shaped can'ier or follower adapted to receive the lower end of a lipstick 21. At opposite sides of the cup 20 are circumferential slots 22 and 23, the latter of which is longer than the former. The lower end of the cup has a flange 24 and an enlarged opening 25.

The cup-shaped carrier has a sliding fit in the rotatable shell 15 with thatshell by means of plate is somewhat in the nature of a flat pin, the same having a central bowed portion 27 and Withand is caused to rotate a flat plate 26. This end lugs 28. The pin extends generally diametriw cally through the carrier and has its end lugs 28 extending through the slots 22 and 23 and also through the longitudinally extending slots 16 of the rotatable shell. The extreme ends of the pin or plate 26 are slidablyreceived by the respective guideways or spiral grooves 13 so that, when the shell 15 is rotated, the carrier will rotate therewith and the carrier will be advanced longitudinally'of the casing. As previously stated, the slot 23 is longer than the slot 22, the purpose of this arrangement being to permit of the plate 26 to be threaded into position within the carrier.

The numeral 30 designates an operating memher or knob which is connected to the shell 15 so as to rotate therewith and which is anchored to the casing for rotation relative thereto in a very.

simple and effective manner. The knob is also preferably formed of moldable material and is preferably of substantially the same diameter as the lower end of the casing against'which it abuts. The knob has a cylindrical boss 31 adapted to rotatably flt within the lower end of the casing. Theknob is connected to the cylindrical shell 15 by means of a pin or stud which has a square shank 35 and a head 36. The shank corresponds in size and shape to the opening 18 and is adapted to fit more or less closely therein with the head resting upon the upper surface of the bottom wall 1'1 of the shell; The knob is provided with an aperture 32 which is initially round and is of a lesser diameter than the greatest cross interlock is formed be-- shell 15, together with the parts carried thereby, through the lower end of the casing, an anto accommodate the blade of a tool, such as a screw driver, when inserting the plate in place. The disk is provided at opposite sides with lugs 43 which are adapted to engage in the lower ends of the respective spiral groove: or threads 13.

It will be seen from Fig. 2 that this washer or' anchor plate is interposed between the bottom of the shell 15 and the top of the operating member.

To assemble the parts of my improved container, the stud is positioned within the opening 18 in the bottom of the shell 15, and the pin 26 is positioned with its ends extending through the slots 22 and 23 of the carrier 20. The carrier may now be placed within the shell 15 with the ends 28 of the pin extending through the slots 16. The shell and carrier may now be introduced into the casing through the lower end thereof, the ends or lugs 28 of the pin being engaged in the spiral grooves 13 and then the shell being turned so as to advance the pin upwardly in the grooves to an extent where the upper end of the shell engages the internal shoulder 14 of the casing. The anchor plate is now positioned on the lower end of the casing with its lugs or ears engaging in the ends of the grooves 13 and then this anchor plate is turned until it is screwed up against the bottom of the shell. The knob may now be positioned so that the lower end of the shank 35 will engage the upper edge of the opening 32 in the knob. The shank is now forced down into that opening, and to accommodate this operation, the pin is provided with the bowed portion 27 so that a tool may be engaged through the notch in that bowed portion with the head 36 of the stud. When the shank is driven into the knob, the knob will take the final position shown in Fig. 2, and it will be clear that the knob is securely connected against axial and rotary movements relative to the shell but that the shell and knob may rotate as a unit relative to the casing and the anchor plate. The latter, since its ends are engaged in l the spiral grooves 13, securely prevents accidental withdrawal of the shell and knob through the lower end of the casing.

of, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

It is also to be understood that the language used in the following claims is intended to cov- 7 er all of the generic and specific features of the invention herein described and all statements of the scope of the invention which, as a matter of language, might be said to-fali therebetween.
