Claims. 1

This invention relates to dispensers of the type used for depositing and extruding tooth paste, shaving cream, face creams and other cosmet cs from cartridges or magazines in a casing, and in particular a dispenser of the refillable type and in which a paper cartridge of paste, cream or the like is inserted and from which small amounts "of the material may readily be dispensed. v

The purpose of this invention is to provide a comparativelj'r inexpensive dispenser for ejecting cosmetic preparations and the like in which the product is contained in removable and replaceable cartridges. I

Various types of dispensers have been provided, particularly for tooth paste, cosmetics, and the like but it is difiic'ult to use'refills in devices of this type. With this thought in mind this Invention contemplates a dispenser having a spring actuated slider and a closure wherein as a tooth brush or the like is inserted in an opening in the dispenser a small quantity of a cosmetic is deposited thereon.

The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide means for constructing a dispenser for cosmetic preparations and the like so that the product, being dispensed is readily replaceable and so that small quantities, only are dispensed with each operation. II I I I, I

Another object of the invention is to -provide aidispensing container that operates automatically as a brush or the like is inserted therein.

A further object of the invention is to, provide a dispenser'container for facecreai'ns, tooth paste shaving cream and other similar products which is of a simple and economical construction. I I I I I With these and other objects and advantages in view the invention embodies a tubular shell having aspring actuated slider for operating'a gate in one end and "ajremovable captwith a spring extended therefrom on the opposite end. Other features and advantages of th invention "will appear from'the following description ta'kenin connection with the drawings wherein: Figure 1 is ajvertical section through the dispenser with'a'tooth brushas indicated indotted linesbeing inserted therein. I, I I I Figure 2 isan end'elevational view o't the dispenser with the lower part-broken-away online 2- 2 of Figure 1 and with the said lower part shownin'secti'on.

I Figure 6 is a Vertical section through thedis- 'penser illustrating a modification wherein the ate is actuated by a resiliently held button.

Figure 7 is a similar section through the upper end of the dispenser showing the gate in the open position.

Figure 8 is also a section "through the upper end of the dispenser taken on line 8 -8 of Figure6.

figure 9 is a sectional plan through the upper end of the dispenser taken "on line 9- 9 of Figure"6.

Figure 10 is a similar 'se'ctional "view looking upwardly taken on line in -f0 of Fig-lire 6.

Figure 11 is a vertical section through a paper cartridge adapted to be used in the dispenser. I Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts the automatic cosmetic dispenser of this invention includes a tubular casing ll) having a cover H with a depending flange 12 which is secured in the upper 'end of the casing 10 by means of a conventional bayonet joint, asshow'n in Fig. 2,

and a horizontally disposed partition i3 spaced from the lower end "providing a compartment l4 for a Slider 15 that is Tactii ated a Spring it and that is positioned to loperate a gate IT. The casing l0 'is'provided with a lower end I8 and a ledge l9 extended across the lower "end provides a stop for the slider l5vvhich is urged against the stop by the spring I6.

The gate :1 'is sli d'ably mounted on rails 23 and 2! and a projection '22 extended downwardlyfrom the gateis positioned to be engaged by the slider l5 inthe return movement thereof for closing the gate. Another-"projection 23 also extends downwardly from the-gate and this projection is positioned to be engaged by the inner end of the slider as the slider is pushed inwardly a tooth brush 'as'indicated by the numeral 24. With the partsarrang'ed inthis- 'ma'nner an opening 25 in the partition l3, which registers with a similar opening 26 in the cartridge 21 is not opened as soon as "the slider startsinwardly but, as noted in Figure lthebrush "moves the slider until the end of the slider engages the projection -23 and then upon continued movetooth brush; Upon the "return rmovetnent the slider follows the tooth brush outwardly, ---being urged by the spring l6 and the slider again engages the projection 22 which carries the gate outwardly to the closed position as shown in Figure 1.

The paper cartridge 21 is provided with a movable disc 28 that is urged against a foil wrapper 29 filled with paste, as indicated by the numeral 30, by a spring 3| on the cover II and as the cartridge is inserted prongs 32 extended upwardly from the opening 25 of the partition is puncture the foil releasing paste in the package so that when the gate i1 is open the paste is extruded upon a tooth brush extended through an opening 320 in the lower part of the dispenser.

The slider i is slidably mounted between partitions 33 and 34 in the lower compartment I4 of the dispenser.

In the modification illustrated in Figures 6 to 11 a casing 50 which is provided with a cover 5| having a depending fiange 52 and which is held to the casing by a bayonet joint 53 is provided with a spring 55 which urges a disc 55 upwardly to force paste or the like, as indicated by the numeral 56 in a foil wrapper 5'? upwardly through a passage 58 in a tube 59 connecting the upper end 69 of the dispenser through an intermediate partition 6 i.

In this design the gate 62 having an opening 53 therein is slidably mounted between a flange E i and the end 60 of the casing and the gate is urged to the closed position shown in Figure 6 by a spring 65, as illustrated in Figure 7.

The gate 62 is provided with a thin strap 6% that is connected to the button 61 and as the button is pressed downwardly to the position shown in Figure 7 the thin strap draws the gate across the end of the passage 53 whereby the opening 63 in the gate registers with an opening 68 in the end 69 of the casing of the dispenser.

The button 61 is urged outwardly by a spring 68 and as the button is released the spring 68 urges the button from the position shown in Figure 7 to that shown in Figure 6 and the spring 65 draws the gate 62 across closing the end of the passage 58.

In this design the cartridge 51 is similar to the cartridge 21 except that an opening ii! in the end thereof is positioned in the center whereby prongs 'H carried by the partition 6| puncture the foil, releasing paste or the like in the cartridge.

In this design the tube 59 and the button 6'? are positioned between partitions I2 and 13 in a compartment M between the partitions Bi and end 60 of the dispenser.

It will be understood that other modifications may be made in the design and arrangement oi. the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
