'UNITED s'TATns PATENT ersten.



Specification of Letters Patent No. 22,080, dated November 16, 1858i.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that. I, 'IHouAsA Lewis, ot Malden, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and Improved Breast-Pipe and NippleShell Combined, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part otl this specih'cation, in which- Figure l, is a view of the instrument. Fig. 2, a section through the same.

My invention consists in so combining a nipple shell of the ordinary construction with a breast pipe that the two shall constitute but one instrument, and shall take up only the room usually occupied by the ordinary nipple shell, at the same time that it shall at all times be in readiness to be used as a breast pipe or pump. This I effect by adapting a neck to the ordinary nipple shell to which an india rubber or other suitable pipe is fitted as will now be more particularly described.

In the drawings A, is t-he shell to which is attached the neck jt'. To this neck is adapted the indiarubber pipe B, which terminates in a suitable mouthpiece g. Thile traveling or at any other time the shell may be worn and serve the purpose of an ordinary nipple shell and at the same time it is always ready to be used as a pump or breast pipe when required.

It is economical in its first cost and entirely supersedes the necessity ot an extra instrument or pump to be applied and used when required.

That I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is- The within described combined nipple shell and breast pipe constructed by the attachment of a neck and pipe to an ordinary nipple she-1l as set forth for the purpose described.
