T0 ALL WHOM I'I MAY CONCERN:
De it known that I, DE WITT C. BEAMER, ot' the city and county of Philadelphia, and State of Pennsyh rania, have invented a new and useful Combined Hermetically SealcdPerfumed Business Card and Pin-Cushion; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had tothe accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
The nature of my invention consists of a double thickness business card, which contains between its folds :i pin-cushion that has in its central part a hole filled with a perfume material for scenting the reverse side of the card. The combined card and pin-cushion will he understood by thc following description. In the accompanying drawings, which make a part of this specication- Figures 1 and 2 are a face and edge view of a piece of straw board, A, of the right dimensions to form a card when folded. It has a hole, a, for the scent to pass out and through the cover ofthe reverse side of the card.
Figures 3 and 4 are like views ofthe same piece, with a piece of lapping, B, opposite the hole a, there being a hole, a', in said piece, which is filled with a perfume material, C.
Figure 5 is a view of the piece A, folded together and connected at its open edges by means ofthe strips D E.
ligure 6 is a face view of the business side of the card.
Figure 7 is a faceview of the scented side of the same.
Like letters in all the figures indica-te the same parts.
I construct the article in the following manner: By means of dies, or otherwise, I cut straw boards into pieces A, as represented in figs. 1 and 2. Each piece is of proper dimensions to form a card when folded at the red line :u The hole a is to permit the scent escaping through the cover at the reverse side of the card, as hereinafter described. Opposite the hole d I paste a piece of lapping, B, as seen in figs. 3 and 4,`the edges I) I, leaving margins c c, so as to form'spaces for pins to pass through, so that thcir'points only may enter the lapping, as described hereafter. There is a hole, a', inthe piece B, which, when the piece A is folded, coincides with the hole a. Before folding 'said piece A, I fill the holo a with a perfume material, C, and cover it with a thin piece of cotton wadding, C', or other4 suitable material, seen in iig. 5, which shows the board folded and connected at its open edge d 'by means of a strip of paper, D, pasted over it. There are strips of muslin E E pasted over the end edges, through which pins are stuck,.and enter the edges of the lapping B. These strips E and the lapping B constitute the pin-cushion. The article is now ready to receive its cover F, which I pasto on, as seen in figs. 6 and 7; the former showing the business face of the card, and the latter the perfumed face. .l
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. A combined hermetically4 scaled, scented, perfumed business card and pin-cushion, constructed substantially as above described, and for the purposes set forth.
'2. The combination of the piece of lapping B with the board A and strips E E, the lapping having a hole, a, for the reception of a perfume material, and being arranged substantially as described and for the purposes sct forth.
.In testimony that the above is my invention I have hereunto set my hand and sealthis twenty-ninth day of June, 1867.
