Millavec, Cleveland, Ohio Application October 24, 1935, Serial No. 46,556 1 Claim. This invention relates to receptacles or con tainers of a nature suitable for the packing of an assembled paste box and brush or like implement so arranged for shipment and sale, and which on 5 being opened for use presents a suitable holder for the paste box while the brush is in use and a suitable container for the brush when not in use. An object of the invention is to provide an efficient and simple construction having a mini mum number of parts. Further objects are to afford convenience in use and to effect preserva tion of the paste or material. A still further object of the invention is to provide for an ar rangement of parts whereby the paste or ma .15 terial containers may be repeatedly replaced; that is, for example, when the shoe polish is ex hausted, a new container of shoe polish only is placed in the holder and assembled device ready for use by merely removing its individual cover, 20 which may be disposed of, the cover for the composite container serving the purpose of the paste box cover thereafter. The invention is particularly useful for such merchandise as shoe polish, a suitable brush or like applying device arranged in the self-con tained unit ful?lling the above objects and hav ing the characteristics and advantages which will become apparent from the following de scription. 50 In the drawings, Fig. 2 is a section taken on a plane indicated n, by the line 2--2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a top plan of the main body container with the other parts removed. Fig. 4 is a composite view showing the parts of the container and brush holder ready for assem bly and use. . Fig. 5 is an enlarged sectional detail of the up per portion of the assembled units. Fig. 6 is a view of the material container itself. Referring particularly to Fig. 1, a main con tainer designated I0 is shown as having a pressed or rolled thread portion at its normally lower end, as indicated at I l, with which threads co operates a threaded ?ange l2 of a bottom or base cover I5. This cover is thus removable and is shown as carrying suitably affixed thereto a brush 50 member having an element It secured as by a screw I‘! to the central portion of the base mem ber [5 while its bristles, indicated at 20,‘ project upwardly, extending when not in use normally within the container as shown. 65 the material container 22. For convenience this container will be referred to as the shoe polish container, although it is to be understood that such a container may be used in this combina tion for any and various kinds of material. Cl The upper portion of the container it] is shown as turned inwardly, providing a ?ange 3B which in turn has a downwardly turned edge 3|. Below the ?ange 58 are preferably formed rolled threads, indicated at 3%, to which are ?tted similar threads 35 formed on the ?ange or skirt of a top cap or cover 35. Normally, this cover 35 may ?t against and close the top of the com paratively ?at or shallow container 22. The material or shoe polish container is shown as provided with an annular rib 24 which may normally rest upon the top of the ?ange 3B and this is shown as formed in the side wall of the shallow container, the top edge of this wall as just indicated meeting the underside of the cover 36 when in the closed and assembled position shown in Figs. 1 and 5. For convenience in holding the polish container 22 in the container iii, the side walls of the con tainer 22 are shown as pressed outwardly forming vertically extending ribs or bosses 25. These pass through slots shown particularly at 38 in the top ?ange 39 of the container I8, and thereafter the container is given a partial turn, for example, a quarter turn, bringing these bosses to a position Fig. 1 is a vertical central section through the assembled brush and container. UL) (01. 206-1) Into the top of the body In is removably ?tted removed from the slots 38 so that inadvertent removal is thereafter prevented while inten tional removal is accomplished by merely bring ing the bosses back into registration with the notches or slots 38. The material such as the shoe polish may be normally packed in the ?at containers 22 with a cover 28 ?tted thereon. Assuming that such a container is ?lled with material, its cover 28 is removed and may be disposed of as no longer useful, the container having been previously ?tted into the top ?ange of the larger container member iii as described, after which the cover member 36 may be placed upon the member ID and tightly closed by the threads 34 and 35, and the brush carrying base cover member l5 may be secured by the thread members I! and I2 as de scribed. The parts so assembled may be set aside for later use, excessive evaporation or drying of the brush being prevented by reason of its being enclosed, and drying of the shoe polish or other material being avoided by its being tightly en closed. For use, the cover 36 is removed and the con tainer l 0 merely set on its bottom edge, presenting 55 2 2,107,648 the shoe polish upwardly. ‘The bottom cover and brush member may be conveniently taken in the hand and applied to the polish material in the container 22 and thence to the surface to which it is to be transferred and applied. After use, the parts are reassembled as shown in Fig. 1. Upon ‘ exhaustion of the supply of shoe polish or other ' material, another ?lled container 22 may be ‘substituted for the empty one,‘ as described. 10 Having thus described my inventiomwhat I claim is: In combination with a cylindrical material con» tainer having an opening and being ‘provided with a plurality of vertically extending ribs and an annular rib, each projecting from the outer periphery of said container, of a cylindrical sup porting member having a threaded end with the extreme end being inturned to form‘ a supporting means by cooperating with the annular rib of said container, the supporting member having cooperating portions with said vertical ribs for positioning the container and. preventing inad vertent>remova1=of=the container from vthe sup port, and acoverhaving a‘ threadediend en 10 gageable with the threaded end of the support for closing the opening of the container and placing the assembly in tight engagement.
