Application April 3, 1953, Serial No. 346,695

2 Claims. (Cl. 221-46) This invention relates to a pocket tissue package dispenser especially intended for school disks or similar articles.

A further object of this invention is to provide a dispenser and holder for conveniently holding a pocket package size of disposable tissues in tissue disposing position on the bottom of a ledge of a school desk, and for also holding at the same time, a small roll in position to convenient use, the small roll being usually in the nature of an inhalent tube or roll, a chap stick, a lipstick or other article of similar shape usually used in conjunction with disposable tissues, so that the one holder of this invention will hold both articles, that is, the roll and the tissues in position for convenient use.

A further object of this invention is to provide a dispenser and holder especially designed for use in connection with a pocket size package of disposable tissues and with a lipstick and hand roll, or similar article, so that the package of tissues and the roll or tube may be readily replaced when consumed.

A further object of this invention is to make it especially convenient for a school child, for instance, to attach the dispenser and holder of this invention to his school desk, and to insert and replace pocket tissue packages as needed, and also to insert and remove the inhalent roll, chap stick, lipstick or the like.

Still a further object of this invention is to provide a holder or dispenser that may be made and sold at low cost from plastic material, metal, or other suitable material.

Briefiy, this invention consists of a parallelepiped form of container having an open end of a size to conveniently receive a pocket size tissue package therein, with a desk ledge cooperating L-shaped hook integrally extending from one face of the container for holding the same in position on a desk, a longitudinal slot being provided in the lower face of the container for dispensing the tissues therethrough, and a cooperating arcuate indented side and arcuate shaped clip extending therefrom for releasably holding the roll or lipstick therein for use as needed.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, this invention comprises the combination, construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter set forth, claimed and disclosed in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Fig. l is a top plan view of the dispenser and holder of this invention.

Fig. 2 is a side edge view looking at the roll holding side thereof.

Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view partly broken away.

Fig. 4 is an end view on line 44 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the dispenser and holder of this invention in operative position on the ledge of a school desk.

Fig. 6 is a sectional view on line 66 of Fig. 1 showing the clip when the article is made of plastic.

Fig. 7 is a similar view through the clip when the article is made of metal.

There is shown at 10 the pocket tissue package dispenser Fatented July 10, 1956 and small roll holder particularly intended for use in connection with the projecting ledge 11 of a school desk 12. The dispenser and holder 10 is a container of generally right angled parallelepiped form including a large upper face 14 and a large lower face 15, with two narrow side faces 16 and 17, and two narrow end faces 18 and 20. integrally extending from one end of the large upper face 14 is an L-shaped hook 21 consisting of a long leg 22 and upwardly extending leg 23 and a short supporting leg 24.

Inasmuch as the thickness and available space underneath the ledge 11 of the desk 12 vary in different school desks, the dimensions of the L-shaped hook 21 will likewise vary to fit particular desks.

The narrow end face 20 is provided with an opening of a suitable size through which the pocket tissue package 25 may be inserted into the dispenser and holder or container l0, and an upstanding lip 26 may be provided on the adjacent edge of the bottom face 15, whereas to prevent the package 25 from being accidently discharged therefrom, but not at so great a height asto prevent its ready insertion or removal.

A longitudinally extending slot 27 provided centrally of the bottom large face 26 permits tissues to be readily withdrawn from the pocket tissue package 25 in the usual manner. An arcuate indentation 28 is provided in one narrow side face 17, and a complementary arcuate shaped clip 30 is provided about centrally of the length of the narrow side face 17 extending outwardly over the arcuate indentation 28. The arcuate shape of the clip 30 and the indentation 28 is such that it will readily receive and hold a small roll 31 therein, such small roll being in the nature of a lipstick, a chap stick, and inhalent roll or similar article, such as would naturally be used in conjunction with disposal of cleanser tissues, as are provided in the package 25.

As shown, in Figs. 1 to 6, the entire device is made of plastic, and in this case, the clip 30 is inherently molded and integrally extends from the narrow side face 17.

In Fig. 7, a slight modification is shown wherein the container is of metal, and in this case a clip 35 is formed from a tongue integrally struck out as at 32 from the narrow side face 33 of the container 34, the container 34 being otherwise substantially identical with the container 10.

In operation, it is particularly intended for use with school children so that they can bring the container 10 or 34 to school with them and clip it on the projecting ledge 11 of the desk 12. Then, the child may insert one of the pocket tissue packages 25, which are sold inexpensively and of a size readily carried in a childs pocket, and may place beneath the clamp 30 or the clamp 35 a small roll 31 which may be a lipstick, inhalent roll, chap stick, or other similar article.

While the device has been shown and the structure described in detail, it is obvious that this invention is not to be considered as being limited to the exact form disclosed, and that changes in detail and construction may be made therein within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of this invention.

Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of this invention, what is claimed is:

1. As an article of manufacture, a pocket tissue package dispenser and small roll holder for attachment to a projecting ledge of a school desk or similar article comprising a pocket tissue package container of generally right angled parallelepiped form having its width and breadth substantially greater than its depth, and thus having two opposite large faces, two narrow side faces and two narrow end faces, one of said large faces having an L-shaped arm extending integrally therefrom and providing a ledge engaging hook supporting said large face against the bottom of the desk ledge, the narrow end face adjacent said L-shaped arm having an opening therein for insertion of the pocket tissue package'therein, said other large face having a tissue dispensing slot extending centrally thereof, .one ,narrow,,side ,face; having-,zamateuate: indentation .ex- :tending lqngitudinallyrthereof, ,and,amarguateirollen-gagwing, .clip, integrally --exte,nd i ng ,centrallwpf, saidarcuate; :indented,,narrowaside;facetior detachahlyeholdingsthei ein an inhalent roll, chap stick,-,1ipstickorg-the like.
