Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented. 'Oct. 27, 1908.

Application filed February 6, 1908. Serial No. eraser.

duction of an ash receiver, which may be used with or without a stand, so arranged that the receiver may be locked to the stand so that it will not become accidentally dis placed therefrom.

Further objects are ceiver which may be used alone, which may be made of pleasing proportions, and which will efi'ectively prevent hot ashes or burning cigars deposited in the receiver from m uring the table or other furniture or furmshings upon which it is carried.

These and further objects will appear from the following specification and ac-' companying drawings, considered together or separately. 1

We attain these objects by the devices illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of the ash receiver and stand embodying our invention. Fig.2 is a plan view of the ash receiver and a portion of the stand. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the same. Fig. 4 is a view of a portion of the stand and a portion of the receiver showing the stand disengaged from the receiver. I

. Tnall of the views like parts are designated by the same reference characters.

In carrying out our invention we provide an ash receiver 1 and a stand 2, the ash receiver being adapted to rest upon the stand and being adapted to be removably connected thereto. The ash receiver comprises an outer casing 3 and an inner casing 4. The inner casing 4 is open at the top and closed at the sides and bottom, and is rovided at its edge with a headin 5, w ich rests upon and covers the unbea ed edge of the outer casing 3. This providesa support for the inner casing, keeping the bottom of such inner casing clear of and away from to produce an ash reto engage with the the bottom of the outer casing. It also provides a finish for the ,edge of both casings. The beading 5 is completely turned over so that there is suficient space left for the upper. edge of the outer casing to enter the turned-over portion, as is shown in Fig. 3. The outer casing is deeper than the inner casing and flares outward toward the bottom, producing a curved flange or ofi'set 6. The beading 5 of the inner casing carries the cigar supports 77 and a match-box holder 8. The number and arrangement of the cigar supports and match-box holders may be varied, as is obvious. The ash receiver may be used alone, upon a table, desk or other support, or may be used in connection 'with the stand 2. p a

The stand, as shown,'comprises legs 9; in

the embodiment illustrated, there being three. These legs are made of rods, preferably of elastic material, and flare out at the bottom, and are connected together by the rings 10 and 11, the ring 11 being much smaller than the ring 10. Above the ring 11 the legs gradually converge together to the point 12, and then diverge so as to form a support which grasps the receiver and engages with the-outer casing 4: thereof. The upper ends or the legs are provided with bosses or enlargementslS, which are adapted to engage with the curved flange 6, already described. These legs and bosses are pressed into engagement with the flange 6, by means of a movable ring 14:. This ring surrounds the legs below the converging point 12 at a place wherethe legs 9 are further apart. By raisin up the ring 14; the legs may be separate so that the ash receiver may be lifted out of engagement with the legs.

We refer to 'ive the legs a permanent diverging set an make them'of an elastic material, preferably spring brass, so that when the ring 14 is raised the upper ends of the legs will I Fig. 4:. To prevent the ring accidentally rising, one o notch 15, located at the upper point so as ring 14 and prevent it from rising. The ring is-shown in Fig. 3 as in enga ement with the notch, and in Fig. 4: as lifte above the notch. The rings 10 the legs is provided with aspring apart, as shown in and 11 may be permanently secured to the legs by any means,

such as by means of the screws, the legs may be provided with bosses or other ornamental feet, asshown.

By our invention an ash receiver is produced which is of a highly ornamental'nature. The ash receiver is firmly locked; to the stand, but it may be readily removed in the manner already described. The ashreceiver may be emptied of ashes and cleaned by simply lifting out the inner casin 4:; By making the inner casing 4 of less epth than the outer casing 3, the latter maybe madev of; a

depth' sufficient to secure the proper portions to insure a pleasing appearance, which depth is greater than the depth of the inner casmg could advantageously be. Another advantage is that the outer -and:inner casin 5 may be made of materials of contrastirigcoTorand appearance; as an example, the-inner casing may be made of brass andthe outer casing may be made of copper, producinga very pleasing appearance. Another advantage in having-the inner and outer casings of less depth is-that an open space is produced between the casings which prevents heat from hot ashes, burning cigars, etc., from being transmitted from the bottom of the inner casing to the bottom of the outer casing. There is, therefore, no possibility of tables or other furniture or furnishings being injured by the heat given off of hot ashes and burning cigars deposited in theash receiver. An-

- other advantage of the openspace between theinner and outer casings is that if the outer casing should become dented at the bottom,

' or otherwise injured, these-dents will not be apparenton the inside of the receiver.

In accordance with the provisions of the patent statutes, wehave described theprinciple of my invention, together withthe apparatus which we now consider to represent the best embodiment thereof, but we desire to have it understood that the apparatus. shown is merely illustrative and, that the invention can be carried out in other ways.

Having now described our invention, whatweclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is I 1..T he combination, with an ash receiver, of a stand, and lockin means inseparable from the stand for securing the two together.

2. The combination, with an ashreceiver,

as illustrated. Thelower ends" ofjl ofii standhaving elasticl g s the saidlegs being separated at their upper ortions to embrace the receiver, and means together into engagement with the receiver.

3.. An ash'receiver, comprising a receiver,

the said receiver having a flange, and a stand havingelastic legs, the said-legs being sepa' rated at their upper ends to embrace the receiver,'bosses; on the-upper ends of the legs, and means for simultaneously causing all of the bosses to engage with the flange.

it An ash receiver, comprising a receiver, the said receiver having a flange, and a stand having elastic logs, the sard legs being d1- 'verged at their upperends to embrace the receiver, bosses'on the upper ends of the legs, and means for simultaneously causing all of :the bosses to engage overthe flange, and to holdthe receiver in engagement withv the diverging portions of the legs.

5. An ash receiver, comprising a receiver with afiange thereon, a stand havingelastic le s the said 1e bein se arated atitheir u a a x b p per extreinlties, bosses on the legs, a rlng surrounding the legs, and means for causing the ring to simultaneously draw all of the legs together, and engage the bosses with the flange.

6. An ash receiver,comprising a receiver and a stand, the said stand having'elast-ic legs converging toward the top and then divergingto. grasp the receiver, and a ring surrounding the converging portion, the said ringbeing free to move on the legs, and of less diameter than the stand, and a notch in one of the legs engaging with the ring, when the le s are in engagement with the receiver. 7. in ash receiver having an outer flatbottomed casing, a stand removably secured thereto, in combinationwith an inner ashcontaining casing, removably supported by the outer casing, with its bottom clear of the bottom of said outer casing, leaving a space between the bottoms of the two casings. v This specification signed and witnessed this fourth day of Feb 1908.
