LIPSTICK CONTAINER Filed Oct. 22, 1946 INVENTOR. LJZQhn HT 770629626 Patented July 4, 1950- UNITED LIPSTICK CONTAINER .John .H. Vocgeli, Prospect, "Conn. Application October 22, 19.46,Seria',l No. 704,868
(01. ZOE-56) 6 Claims.
This invention relates to cosmetic holders, and more .particularly to an improved container for a lipstick crayon or pencil havinga pair of pivoted covers to enclose said crayon when not being used.
One object of this invention is toprovide a lipstick container of the above nature having an improved unitary mechanism for successivelyopening the pivoted covers and elevating the lipstick crayon.
.A further object of this invention is to provide an-improved lipstick container of the above nature Which will be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, simple in construction, compact, ornamental in appearance, and very eflicient and durable in use.
With these and other objects in View, which will appear as the description proceeds, there'has been illustrated .in the accompanying drawings one form in which the invention maybe conveniently embodied iii-practice.
In the drawing:
Fig. l is a sideview in elevation of the improved lipstick container with the upper portion of the outer shell shown in section, and with the covers in closed position.
Fig. 2 is a side view similar to Fig. 1 with the covers in open position.
Fig.3 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.
Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 44 of Fig. 3, looking downwardly.
.Fig. 5 .is a perspective view of the two covers shown in separated relation.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the inside shell.
Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the intermediate shell.
Fig. 8 is a detail sectional View taken along the inclined line 3-8 of Fig. 2, looking toward the left.
Referrin now to the drawings in which like reference numerals designate like parts throughout the several views, the numeral It indicates the outer casing of the lipstick holder. The casing IB is provided with an open top dome having an inturned curved rim I I.
Fitted Within the bottom of the outer casing I is a short cylindrical flange I2 integral with and offset outwardly from an inner shell I3 (Fig. 6). The shell 53 has a wide vertical slot I 4 which lies in alignment with a narrow vertical leg I of an L-shaped slot I5a formed in the outer casing Ill.
Disposed between the outer casing Ill and the inner shell is is an intermediate shell I6 (Fig. '7)
.2 which has a narrow vertical slot H which is aligned with the slots I5 and I. The shell It rests upon the top of the flange I2 of the inner shell I3.
A lipstick crayonIS is tightly seated in a twistable and slidablecarrier sleeve I9, havinga solid plug .20 tightlymounted within its lower end.
In order to elevate and lower the .lipstickcarrying sleeve Ill within the inner shell I3, provision is made or" a horizontal-stud -2I havingareduced threaded end 22 screwedinto the plug :20 and also having an enlarged handle knob 23 located out- .side the casing I0. M
A's-clearly shownin F'ig. 3 of the-drawffgithe stud 2I passes through the slots I4, I5, I! and enables .theheight of the-lipstick crayon I8 to be readily adjusted by manipulating the handle knob 23.
In order to close the open upper end of the casing I I) after the lipstick sleeve is depressed, provision .ismade of a pair of identical bucket .members 24, v25, each fornfing a portionof a hollow sphere.
Each of-the bucket members .24, 25 hasa pair of depending cars 26, 2'l,-at the oppoqsite sides thereof.
.2 of the buckets 24,25 have inturned hook lugs .29 .formed thereon.
The bucket members 24.25 are reversely arranged so that the hook lugs 29 thereof are adapted toseat in a :pair of outstanding eyelet rivets 3!], 3!! formed in the upper portion of the intermediate shell I6.
Assembly The parts of the improved lipstick container may be assembled together by first inserting the carrier sleeve I9 within the inner shell I3. The intermediate shell I6 will then be slipped over the inner shell I3 and the bucket members 24, 25 attached in operating position to the inner shell I3 and the intermediate shell I6. The outer casing I0 will then he slipped down to the position shown in Figs. 1-3 after which the stud 2I will be inserted through the aligned slots I4, I5 and I1 and screwed into the carrier sleeve I 9 and the bottom plug 2!! located therein.
Operation When it is desired to close the lipstick container, the handle knob 23 will first he slid downwardly as far as it will go to retract the lipstick crayon I8 into the container. The stud 2| will due to the fact that the eyelet rivets 28 remain stationary.
-When it is desired to use the lipstick crayon l8, the handle knob 23 will be swung to the left and then upwardly to first open the bucket cover members and then raise the crayon-holding carrier sleeve 19 to the position shown in Fig. 3.
While there has been disclosed in this specification one form in which the invention may be Jembodied, it will be understood that this form is shown for the purpose of illustration only, and that the invention is not to be limited to the specific disclosure, but may be modified and embodied in various other forms without departing from its spirit. In short, the invention includes all the modifications and embodiments coming within the scope of the following claims.
Having thus fully described the invention, what is claimed as new, and for which it is desired to secure Letters Patent, is:
1. In a lipstick container, an outer casing, an inner shell rigidly'mounted in said casing, a carrier for a lipstick crayon slidably and rotatably 'Wrnpunted within said, inner shell, cooperating cover members for the top of said crayon pivoted to said inner shell, means responsive to th twisttwisting movement thereof.
2. In a lipstick container, an outer casing, an inner shell rigidly mounted within said casing and spaced inwardly therefrom, a carrier for a lipstick crayon slidably and rotatably mounted within said inner shell, a rotatable intermediate shell located between said inner shell and said outer casing, a pair of dome-shaped cover members pivoted to said inner shell at the top thereof, said cover members having depending lugs connected to said intermediate shell whereby when said carrier is twisted in its lowermostposition, said cover members will be rocked about their pivotsto enclose the top of said lipstick crayon, and means inner shell rigidly mounted within said outer casing, a crayon carrier slidable and rotatable within said inner shell, a pair of cooperating swingable dome-shaped cover members pivoted to said inner shell, means responsive to the successive vdownward sliding of said carrier andthe rotation thereof Within said casing to successively depress said crayon and close said cover members over the top of said crayon, and means to prevent the sliding and the rotation of said carrier from occurring simultaneously.
4. In a lipstick container, an outer casing, an inner shell rigidly secured to said outer casing, a carrier for a lipstick crayon slidable and rotatable within said inner shell, a rotatable intermediate shell located between said inner shell and outer casing, said outer casing, said inner shell, and said intermediate shell having aligned vertical slots, a stud member secured to said carrier, passing through said slots and having an exterior operating handle knob, a pair of bucket cover engaged in said intermediate shell, the slots in iii said outer casing and in said inner shell having portions which are Wider than said stud member, whereby the depression of said stud will lower said crayon and the subsequent rotation of said stud will close said bucket and cover members.
5. The invention defined in claim 4, in which the vertical slot in said casing has a horizontal extension at the bottom thereof to permit said intermediate shell to rotate and close said bucket members afer said lipstick crayon carrier has been depressed as far as it will go.
6. The invention defined in claim 4, in which the vertical slots in said inner shell is made sufficientlywide as not to be engaged by said stud when the latter is rotated and prevent twisting said carrier and said intermediate shell.
