SPEFICATJION forming part of Letters Patent No. 650,302, dated May 22, 1900.
Application filed February 8, 1900. y Serial No. 4,534. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE P. ORAGIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Spokane, in the county of Spokane and State of Washington, have invented new and useful Improvements in Paste-Bottles, of which the following isa specification.
My invention relates to that class of pastebottles which embrace a central water-well designed to receive and keep in a moist condition the brush to be used in the paste. It is designed more particularly as an improve-Y ment upon the bottle forming the subject- Vmatter of my contemporary application led August 1l, 1899, Serial No. 726,897; and it consists in the' peculiar and advantageous construction hereinafter described, and particularly pointed out in the claims appended.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure'l is a diametrical section of my improved bottle with the cover thereon and the brush in its proper position in the central well. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section taken in the plane indicated by the broken line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the brush removed. Fig. 4 is a similar view of the cover. Fig. 5 is a similar view of the pitcher which is designed to be placed in the centralwell when the bottle is packed for shipment. Fig. 6 is a detail diametrical section illustrating a modified construction of bottle. Fig. 7 is a perspective section illustrating a modified construction of well-holder. Fig. 8 is a similar View of another modified construction of well-holder. Fig. 9 is a perspective View of a cylinder, of metal or other suitable material, which when cut on the broken lines and bent on the full lines indicated thereon produces two well-holders such as shown in Fig. 8. Fig. 10 is a perspective view of a well,of metal, glass, 'or other suitable material, having a base-flange whereby the paste in the bottle is enabled to hold it in proper position therein. Fig. 1l is a similar view of another well having lateral feet or extensions at its base for the same purpose as the flangeof the well shown in Fig. 10.
Referring by letter to the said drawings, and more particularly to Figs.V l to 5 thereof; A is a bottlegwhich is preferablymade in one piece ,of glass or other suitable material and is circular in form, as illustrated. This bot-3 tle is provided at its upper edge with exterior screw-threads a and at its bottom has a lateral oi'set b, the upper wall of which forms an abutment for a purpose presently pointed out.
of cheapness and lightness is preferably formed of thin glass, and C is the well-holder.
The latter is formed in one piece of vulcanized rubber or other resilient materlal and comprises a verticallydisposed socket c,
which is preferably slightly smaller in diameter than the well B, so as to enable it to tightly grip or embrace said well when the same isY inserted, and lateral extensions or feet d, which extend radially from the lower end of the socket,as best shown in Fig. 2. The socket c of the holder may be bottomless, as shown to enable it to take up paste from the`botton1A of the bottle A when said bottle is almost depleted of paste. The feet dof the holder are of the proportional length illustrated, and hence it will be seen that when the well-holder is pressed down into the bottle they will spring into the offset b thereof and assist in securing the socket c in the center of the bottle and against upward movement.A When desired,- the socket c of the holder C may have a thin bottom, as'shown in Fig. 7, in order to aord a cushion for the bottom of the fragile waterwell, calculated to prevent breakage of the bottom of said water-well incident to pressure thereon.
D is the cover of the bottle, which is preferably of light sheet metal and is provided with a central aperture c and a threaded marginal ilange f. i
E is a brush for applying the paste, and F is an annular washer, of rubber or othersuit- B is a central Water-Well-,which for the sake able material, which is adapted, vwhen the v its middle wimmo4 enlargements gri-,between which the'v annular washer is interposed and` held, as shown. The upper of these enlargements g is preferably tapered and ofthe proportional size shown, while the'lower enlargement-h` is preferably of asimilar size and i shape. l u Y. Byreason of the construction of the bushhandle as shown and described it .will be observed that when the brush is placed in the 'water-well B with the washer F resting on the upper end of said Welland the cover D is moveddownwardlyon theupper portion ofthe brush-handle andscrewed on the bottle Ai the upper enlargement g of the handle will protrudethrough and snugly occupy the the la "erture e, thus obviating the liability of paste-being deposited on the brush-handle,` an "thereby reaching the iin gers of the operatr when the brush-is used to apply paste.
brush being improperly placed in the waterwelhlso that its handle rests against one side thereof, the Wall of the aperture e will when ihec''ver is moved down on the brushhan dle and 'screwed on the bottle serve, in conjunction with the tapered enlargement gf-of saidhandle, to center the brush and cause the Hupper portion ofthe handle thereoihtoV extld vertically abovethe cover and the enlargement g to Ysnugly occupy the aperture e in'the coyen vIt will further be observed thatwhen applied in the manner stated the cover and 'rubber washer exert pressure on the upper end of the water-well, and thereby assist in ,holding said well in its proper position and prevent the escape of water therefreni" no matter how violently the bottle is shaken or' handled; The washer F on the brush-handle is also advantageous, since in the event of the brush being laid down it prevents' the paste coming in contact with the' support o 'n which the brush isplac'ed.
efr (see Fig. 5) isa pitcher, or paper or other suitable light material. This pitcher is placed in the well Bat the time of shipment,- and when the bottleis to be placed in use 'is' designed to be removed and used to fill or partiallyll the well B with water.
VIn lieu of providing the bottle A'with an offset b, the upper wall of which formsfan abutment for the engagement of the feet of the'well-holder C, I may provide it adjacent to"` its' bottom with one or more (preferably fouiilribsor abutment-s b'. These ribs are arranged a slight distance apart, so as to afford ways c' between them, and *when the holder C is placed in the bottle the ends'of its feet d are passed through ways, and the j Well BI.' l A well B therein, or the wells B B2 are employed,
ho'lderis'thengiven apartia-l' turn' to secure vthe feet below the ribs: It follows from this that when the construction of bottle shown in Fig. 6-is used the feet d ofthe bottle-holder need not bel resilient.VV i
In Fig. 8 of Athe drawings; I lhave shown a -modified*well-holden@j which` is made vof metal and comprises anannularsocket c2, designed to receive the well B, inwardly-directed' portions c8 at the lower end 'of the socket designed to form a rest for the bottom of the well, and outwardly-directed feet c4, designed te restl on the bottom of the bottle and enable Avthe paste therein to hold the holder against casual movement.
Two holders C2 may be formed by'cutting a metallic cylinder,.s`ucli as shown in Fig. 9; on the broken lines'and bend-ing'the" inet-al on the full lines displayed in said figure, and hence the Vholders may be produced very cheaply.
In Fig. 'l0 I have illustrated a well B', which may be of glass, metal, or othersu'it'able material and is provided 'at its base with a lateralf,W
I iange d2. The said flange is designed to rest on the bottom of the bottle, so as to enable the paste therein toV hold lthe wellag'ainst gcasual movement. Again, `it will be Seen that in the event of the In Fig. 11 is shown a well B2, havinglateral feet or flanges d3 at its base, designedto serve the samepurposeas the base flange Pot the When vthe well-holder C, with the the abutments b Z7' ofthe paste-bottle may obviously be dispensed with.
My improved paste-'bottle is used in the ordinary manner-that is to say, the cover normally rests over the bottle and the brush stands' in the well containing witten-whereby Vitis kepts'oftand moist, asis desirable. Vlhenv it is desired to apply paste to any article, the cover is screwed on the bottle and removed from the brush and said brush is used in the ordinary manner. Subsequent to using the IDO IOS
brush it is replaced in the water-well andthe cover is placed over the brush-handleand screwed down on the bottle, when the bottle may be tightlysealed and evaporationof the vpaste eifectnallyprevented.
It will be appreciated from the fjegoing that my improved paste-bottle is simple, coinpacr, and light., the latter being duefin Ylarge measure to the fact that the water-Well is formed separately f1 omthe bottleA, Aand. may therefore be formedof very light glass. "It will also be appreciatedffrom Vth'e foregoing that the paste in the' bottle operates,`in conjunction with the interior abutments' thereof, to hold the well-holderand the well' against casual movement.
Havingthus described my invention, what Iclaimis- Y l f l. The combination with apaste-bottle'having threads at its upper edge, and a well-in said b ottle; of a cover having threads adapted to engagethose of thebottle and'also having an' aperture arranged to coincide with the Well, a brush having enlargements on its handle, the upper one of which is tapered and adapted to protrude through and snugly occupy the aperture of the cover, and an annular washer surrounding the brush-handle and interposed between the enlargements thereof; said washer being adapted to be compressed between the Well and cover, substantially as specified. f
2. The combination with a paste-bottle having a well; of a cover adapted to be secured on said bottle and having an aperture arranged to coincide with the well, a brush having an enlargement on its handle adapted to protrude through and occupy the aperture `of the cover, and an annular washer arranged on the handle below the enlargement thereof, substantially as and for the purpose described.
3. The combination with a paste-bottle having an interior abutment adjacent to its bottom; of a well, and a removable holder therefor comprising a socket of resilient material adapted to grip the well, and an extension eX- tending laterally from the base of said socket and adapted to engage the interior abutment of the bottle, substantially as specilied.
et. The combinationwith a paste-bottle having a lateral odset at -its bottom; of a well, and a removable holder therefor formed in one piece of resilient material and comprising a socket and feet extending laterally from the base thereof and adapted to spring into the lateral offset of the bottle, substantially as specified. y
