titled “Smoking stand and accessories therefor”.
The invention comprehends, generally, a port
able stand of suitable height having at its top an
electric ignitor, cigar rests, and an ash receptacle,
H O all grouped together so as to be within easy reach
of- a person or persons desiring to smoke. A re
movable annular. tray is provided to engage the
stand, extending about the smoking utilities, to
support drinks, candies, tobacco or other refresh
15 ments, which it may be desired to serve. The
tray, being removable from the stand, may be used
for the same purposes as an ordinary portable

Fig. 9 is a detail perspective view of a sup
porting bracket disposed within the base of the
device depicted in Fig. 1.
As shown in Fig. 1, a slender upright standard
20, having enlarged base and head members 2!
and 22 connected by a tubular member 23, has at
its top a tray 24, and a group of smoking acces
sories or utilities including a torch 25, normally
supported in a fuel container 26, an electric ig
nitor 21., cigar or cigarette rests 28, and an ash
or waste receptacle having thereabove a lifting
handle 29 and a depressible rod 3| for actuating a
plate which is normally closed to prevent smoke
or fumes arising from the receptacle.
A removable plate 32 closes the bottom of the
tubular base member 2|, the walls of which are
engaged by an upwardly extending peripheral
flange 33 of theplate. The head and base mem
bers are reduced to telescope within the connect
ing tube 23, as indicated at 34, and have inclined
or semi-bayonet slots 35 for receiving bolts 36
extending through the tube 23.» Beads 31, each
having an inturned ?ange 38 engaged between
the ends of the tube 23 and the shoulders 39 ad 10.
jacent the reduced extremities 34 of the head and
base, serve to conceal the bolt heads. As will be
noted, the flange 33 of the base closure plate and
the beads 31 are of roundedconiormation in or
der to add to the symmetry of thejstandard and to
provide space for the heads of the bolts 36.
A cover plate 4| for the head member 22 has a
depending peripheral ?ange 42, a peripheral bead
43 being formed on the ?ange for the purposes of
resiliently engaging pressed-out protuberances,
44, to removably retain the cover uponthe head,
and seating the tray 24. The tray may have an
outer upstanding ?ange 45 for retaining articles
thereupon and an inner flange 46 for frictionally
engaging the flange 42 of the cover plate. The
upper edge of ?ange 46 is preferably flush with
the upper surface of the cover plate. The latter
has an opening 47 with a depressed wall 43 for
seating an annular ?ange 49 of a funnel 5|, which
is thereby suspended within the standard 20.
Struck out ?ngers 52 are provided on the funnel
for engaging the wall 48 of the cover plate, the
latter having notches 53 with whichthe ?ngers
52 may be aligned, upon rotation of the funnel
by turning the handle 29 a?ixed thereto, to allow
the funnel to be removed from or replaced within
the standard. As shown in Fig. 4, a stop 54 on the
wall 48 limits the rotational movement of the
funnel 55. To the latter is a?ixed an annular
plate 55 having a depending ?ange 58 for receiv
ing an ash or Waste receptacle 56, which has a
threaded upper end releasably engaged by detents
57 on the ?ange 58. A closure plate 59, hinged
to the funnel at El normally seals the container
56 from the outside atmosphere, being held 45
against the bottom of the funnel by a laterally ex
tending portion 62 of rod 3!. The latter extends
throughv openings in the plate 55, funnel 5i and
handle 29 being constantly urged upwardly by a
spring 63 connecting it to the plate 55.
A link 64 pivoted to both the rod 3| and the
closure plate 59, causes the plate to open, to the
position indicated in dotted lines in Fig. '7, upon
depression of rod 3|, so that ashes or other waste
the jupnel may drop into the container 56. A 55
bar 65 is provided at the upper mouth of the fun
nel for the purpose of enabling a smoker to: knock
ashes from a cigar, cigarette, or pipe. If desired
the handle 29 may be eliminated, in which event
the bar 65 may serve as the handle, both for car
. rying the stand and for turning or lifting the
ash receptacle and funnel therefrom. The cigar
and cigarette rests 28, one or more of which may
be provided, may be affixed to the cover plate 4|
10 by screws 66, as depicted in Fig. 8.
The portable torch includes a handle 68 and
is supported by a tube 85 extending from a part
of the fuel container 26, the torch having a torch
or wick portion disposed within the container, as
15 more particularly described in my co-pending ap
plication Serial No. 576,923, referred to hereinbe
fore. The fuel container, which includes 'jar‘TI,
extends through an opening 8| in the cover
plate 4|, being retained in place by resilient ?n
gers 92 which depend from the cover plate and
resiliently engage the sides of the jar. The latter
has a threaded cover ‘I8 secured to a supporting
plate 83, which may have an ornamental surfac
ing 84 of bakelite or similar composition, and
25 which seats upon the portion of cover plate 4|
current of high voltage will simultaneously be
created, the induced current arcing between the 15
spark button I I5 and the metallic portion of the
torch covered by or adjacent the fuel saturated
torch portion. The fuel on the torch will be ig
nited by the electric spark or arc, so that the
torch may be used to light a cigar, cigarette or 20
for other purposes.
Upon replacement of the
torch within. the tube 85,,the, ?ame will be ex
tinguished. and the supply of fuel on the torch
portion replenished.
Accumulated ashes may be placed in, funnel
5| by striking .the cigar, cigarette or. pipe against
about opening 8|.
The ignitor 21 shown in Figs. 2, 3 to 4 is sub‘;
stantially like that shown in my co-pending ap
plication Serial No. 576,923, now Patent No.
30 1,999,140 issued April 23, 1935. It comprises a
base 9| of insulating material extending through
an opening in the cover plate 4| and having a
?ange 92 overlying the cover plate.
duction coil. A metal strip I33 serves to ground
the latter terminal to the bracket.
In use, the tray may obviously be removed
from or supported by the standard, as the user
desires. When it is desired to light a cigar or
cigarette, the torch with its torch portion sat
urated with fuel, from the container, such as
alcohol or other readily ignitible hydro-carbon
0r hydro-carbon derivative, may be withdrawn
from the supporting tube 85 and inserted in the 10
Well of the ignitor base to complete an electrical
circuit through the battery and primary winding '
of the induction coil. A circuit having induced
The latter
has depending portions 94 through which bolts
95, embedded in base 9|, extend. The base 9|
has a funnel-shaped well 99, into which the wick
portion of- torch 25 may be inserted to effect ig
nition of the fuel on the torch by an electric
spark passing between a metallic portion of the
torch beneath the wick and an electrode‘ I I6 on
the wall of well 99. In effecting ignition, the
torch, by insertion in the well, causes the closing
of a primary circuit including a wire I06, a bat
tery I01 with terminals I08 and III), a Wire I09,
45 the primary windings of an induction coil with
primary circuit interrupter I I2, and a ground.
The secondary circuit energized'upon closure of
the primary circuit, includes a wire II5 extend
ing from one secondary terminal of the induc
tion coilto the spark button or electro'de H6,
and a ground from the metallic portion of the
torch to the other secondary terminal of the
The battery and induction coil are supported
in the base 2| of the standard by the bracket,
depicted in Fig. 9, which includes a strap II‘I
having ends “8 and H9 apertured for the re
ception of bolts I2| which secure the bracket
to angle brackets I22 anchored to-the base. A
portion, I23, ofstrap III, is formed to provide a
saddlefor receiving the battery I01 and for sup
porting a generally U-shaped strap I24, which
carries binding posts I25 adapted to contact the
terminals of the battery, and ?anges I26 and I21
respectively, for engaging and giving lateral sup
port to the battery and the induction coil. A
third bracket section, I28, extends from the sad
dle portion I23 to the end II9 of strap III, to
the bar 65, and any. waste material in the funnel
may be discharged into 'the container .56 by
depressing the rod 3| to open'the closure 59.
Immediately upon release of the rod 3|, the
closure will resume its normal position shown in
full lines in Fig. 5, thereby preventing smoke or
fumes from arising from the container. The
latter may be emptied by turning handle 29 or
the bar 65 to bring the ?ngers 52 of the funnel
into registry with notches 53 in the, cover and
then, by the handle 29 or bar 65 withdrawing
the funnel and the attached container 56,>the
latter being removable from the funnel by turn
ingit. When the waste receptacle is in normal
position, the handle“ or bar 65 may be used to
lift and carry the entire smoker’s stand and
The fuel containermay be re?lled by extract
ing it from the standard against the resistance
of the resilient ?ngers 82 and by then unscrew
ing the jar ‘IT-from its cover 18. The battery
is likewise readily ‘removed for replacement, this
being accomplished by removing the bottom-clo
sure 32 from the standard and lifting the battery
from its supporting bracket.
It will be understood that the devices herein
described and illustrated are merely exemplary
of the principles of the invention, which may be
embodied in other devices having other struc 55
tural characteristicsand arrangements, all with
in-the purview ofthe invention. ~
