SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 769,864, dated September 13, 1904. Application filed September 8, 1903. Serial No. 172,422. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, CoR'rEz D. HALL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Akron, in the county of Summit and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pei-fuming Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in perfuming devices; and the object is to provide a simple and effective device by means of which fine and delicate fabrics may be readily and conveniently perfumed without being stained or otherwise injured byv the perfume.
With the above object in view the invention consists in the novel features of construction hereinafter fully described, particularly pointed out in the claims, and clearly illustrated by the accompanying drawings, in
which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a perfuming device embodying my invention;.Fig. 2, a longitudinal sectional view thereof; Fig. 3, a transverse sectional view on the line as w of Fig. 2; Fig. 4, a similar view on the line y 3/ of the same figure; Fig. 5, an enlarged side elevation of the perfume-container removed from the casing, and Fig. 6 an enlarged longitudinal sectional View of the same.
Referring now more particularly to said drawings, 1 designates a cylindrical casing having at one end a mouthpiece 2, inclosed by a removable cap 3 and formed at its opposite end with a conical portion t, in the apex of which is an outlet-opening 5. This outlet end of the casing is also closed by a removable cap 6.
Positioned within the casing intermediately of its ends is a perfume-container comprising a cylindrical receptacle 7 of wire-gauze in which a layer 8 of linen fiber, surrounding a center of silk fiber 9, is placed.
In operation a small quantity of the desired perfume is dropped upon the container, passing through the meshes of the Wire-gauze to the fiber contained therein. This perfume of course soon dries; but thereafter any article may be thoroughly perfumed without stain by applying the lips to the mouthpiece of the casing and blowing therethrough. The linen fiber retains the substance of the perfume for a considerable length of time and acts as a feeder for the silk fiber, which latter owing to its very fine texture gives a relatively larger surface within the same space than any other substance. The original extract or oil of the perfume having dried within the container, the moisture of the breath is sufificient to strongly revive the odor and thoroughly impregnate therewith any article upon which the breath passing through the casing may be blown. There must be sufficient space between the container and the conical exit to allow condensation along the walls of the casing.
Having thus fully described my invention, What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is
1. A perfuming device comprising acasing having an outlet and an inlet, and a perfume-container arranged in said casing between said inlet and outlet and comprising silk fiber surrounded by linen fiber.
' 2. A perfuming device comprising a casing having an inlet and a conical-shaped outlet, and a perfume-container arranged in said casing between said inlet and outlet and comprising silk fiber surrounded by linen fiber.
3. A perfuming device comprisinga casing having a mouthpiece at one end and a conical-sh aped portion at its opposite end formed with an exit-opening, a perfume-container arranged in said casing comprising a wire-gauze receptacle containing silk fiber surrounded by linen fiber, and closures for the mouthpiece and exit-opening.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in presence of two witnesses.
