CUTICLE 'REMOVER Filed' March 24, 1944 Patented Jan. 15, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,392,907 oUTioLE REMovEa Alice D. Driscoll, Knoxville, Tenn.

Application March 24, 1944, Serial No. 528,005

1 Claim.

This invention relates generally to cosmetic articles, and more especially to a cuticle remover.

The primary object of my invention is to provide a cuticle remover that is simple and economical in construction, neat, compact and attractive in appearance, and highly efficient and durable in use.

With the foregoing and other objects in view that will appear as the nature of my invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts illustrated in the accompanying drawing and more particularly pointed out in the appended claim.

In the accompanying drawing, which is for illustrative purposes only and is therefore not drawn to scale:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a cuticle remover, constructed in accordance with my invention.

Figure 2 is a central longitudinal section, with the parts shown on an enlarged scale.

Figure 3 is a central transverse section, taken through the container and wooden stopper, and Figure 4 is a detail perspective view of the wooden stopper and tip.

Referring to the drawing for a more particular description of my invention, and in which drawing like parts are designated by like reference characters throughout the several views, A designates the article, as a whole, consisting of the hollow elongated cylindrical body or container I, closed at one end by the screw-threaded cap 2, equipped with the spring controlledvacuum valve 3, as shown. The container I is preferably made of glass or plastic material.

The opposite end of the container is provided with an elongated stopper or plug 4, preferably of wood and of cylindrical form in cross section. The stopper or plug is provided in its body portion with a longitudinal groove 5 to permit the ow of the liquid cuticle remover, and terminates at its outer end in a beveled tip or point 4. When the device is not in use, the wooden tip is covered and protected by the screw threaded cap 6. The outer end of the container is closed by the flat transverse vwall formed on its outer face with a central tubular sleeve or boss 8, through which extends and is supported the outer end of 4the stopper 4.

In practice, as the tip or point 4 of the wooden stopper or plug 4 is pressed against the cuticle, a suicient quantity of liquid in the container I is released to dissolve the cuticle, without any overflow of the liquid.

From the foregoing description taken in con- Y nection with the drawing, it is thought that the construction, operation and advantages of my invention will be readily understood, without requiring a more extended explanation.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

A cuticle remover of the character specified, comprising a hollow elongated cylindrical container for the liquid cuticle remover, a screw threaded cap closing one end of the container, a spring controlled vacuum valve on said cap, a ilat transverse wall closing the other end of the container, said wall formed on its outer face with a central tubular sleeve, an elongated cylindrical wooden stopper or plug, extending through and supported by the tubular sleeve of said transverse wall, said stopper formed in its outer surface with a longitudinal groove to permit the now of the liquid from the container, and terminating at its outer end in a at beveled tip, and a screw threaded cap adapted to cover the tip when the device is not in use.
