William Frsncis Grunt,

Cleveland, Ohio, assignor to Philip Koplan, 'lesncch, N. l.

Application September 28, 1936, Serial No. 102,861

3 lUls.

This invention relates to containers and is particularly adapted to: containers for holding and applying somewhat plastic materials such as shoe polish, was and the like.

An object of the invention is to provide a. container which may be easily used to supply a slightly plastic material.

Another object is to provide a. container which will effectively seal the material enclosed therein.

Another object is to provide a. container which will be neat and attractive in appearance.

Another object is to provide a. container which may beeasily used either to apply a, plastic material or to spread or polish the same.

Another object is to provide at container which may be readily and economically manufactured.

Another object is to provide a. convenient carrler for polishing material.

Other objects will hereinafter appear.

The invention will be better understood from the description 'of one practical embodiment illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in

which; I

Figure l is a sectional view of the component parts of one form of device embodying the lnventlon;

Figure 2 is a'view partly in section and partly in elevation of the parts in assembled relation;

Figure 3 is a view showing the device as used in the application of shoe polish{ and Figure 4 is s similar view showing the parts as they are used to perform the polishing operation.

i The device consists of a. central support or carrier indicated generally at l, having means for carrying on one side an applicator end on the other a pollsher, both of which may be enclosed within caps 2 and 3. The carrier and caps may be convenientl formed of sheet metal,

as illustrated in Figures 1 and 2.

The carrier is shown as comprising s. central disc l about which the metal is rolled to form an upwardly extending cylindrical flange 5, an outwardly extending annular head 6, and downwsrdly extending cylindrical flange 1 having a. rolled or beaded inturned edge.

A dished holder 8, which likewise may be conveniently formed of sheet metal, is arranged to be nested within the abuse defined by disc & end flange 5, and to be frictionclly retained therein by contact with the flange. Secured to the upper surface of this holder as by clinched nails 9, staples, or an other desired means, is a thick piece of absorbent fibrous material l0,

(ill. 15-105) such as felt, cotton, or the like, which is impregnste'd or saturated with an oily or waxy material which it is intended shall be dispensed from the container.

As a polishing material for leather, a. dehy- 5 drated wax such as csmauba. wax, in which may be incorporated any desired pigment such as Taxiternia, antimony, or the like is very effectlve, and such materials in the container may be, kept for indefinite periods without deterioration. With these materials, others, such as castile soap emulsion, and preservatives such as formaldehyde may be included if desired.

On the other side of the carrier 5 is a polisher which consists of two telescoped dished plates 1 H and i2, between the peripheral flanges of which is gripped the edge of a piece of mapped fabric is, such as velour, these parts being as= sembled in the manner in'which cloth covered buttons are manufactured. Between the plate it and the fabric covering, a disc M of feltor other relatively soft material is situated, to provide a. yielding or resilient backing for the napped fabric.

Parts H to it may be conveniently assembled by a. button making machine and frlctionally held within the space defined by flange l of the carrier.

The caps 2 and 3 frictionclly engage the exterior of flanges 5 and P, so that either may be removed as desired.

When it is desired to apply the material within the absorbent pad ill, the cap 2 is removed and cap 3 used as a. handle of gripping means as most clearly illustrated in Figure 3. Molsture may be applied tothe dehydrated wax as desired to render it .more fluid. Oi course, it will be understood that a. hydratable wax is for this reason preferable. After this material has been applied, cap 2 is replaced and cap 3 40 removed, the device inverted and used as a brush or polisher, as shown in Figure 4.

The words hydrated" and dehydrated as used in this specification are used in the broader sense, as meaning: "combined with water and to be rendered free from water, respectively, and not in the narrower sense sometimes used in which these words, relate to water of crystallization as distinguished from other combinations of water.

While I have described the illustrated embodiment of my invention in some particularity, .obviously many others will readily occur to those skilled in this art, and I do not therefore limit myself to the precise details shown and de- 55 scribed, but claim as my invention all embodiments, variations and modifications coming within vthe scope of the appended claims.

I claim:

L'A polishing device comprising a disc-like sheet metal carrier formed adjacent its periphery into two oppositely disposed marginal cylindrical flanges, a shallow cup-shaped sheet metal holder frictionally engaged within one of said flanges, and an absorbent pad secured to said holder, a cup-shaped holder irictionally engaged within the other of said flanges, and a resilient pad secured to said second cup-shaped holder, the pad having a covering of napped fabric on its exterior with the main extended outwardly.

3. A polishing device comprising a disc-like sheet metal carrier formed adjacent its periphery into two opp sitely disposed marginal cylindrical flanges, a shallow cup-shaped sheet metal holder frictionally engaged within one of said flanges, and an absorbent pad secured to said holder, 9. cup-shaped holder irictionally engaged within the other of said flanges, and a resilient pad secured to said second cup-shaped holder, the pad having a covering of napped fabric on its exterior with the nap extended outwardly, and two cup-shaped metallic covers engageable with the exterior of each of said flanges.
