Roll, Kansas City, Mo., assignor of one-third to Donald G. Dayton, Omaha, Nebn, and one-third to Frank O. Hutchison, Kansas City, Mo. Application December 16, 1935, Serial No. 54,617 4 Claims. This invention relates to an article of manu facture in the nature of an ornament to be used as a pocket piece or a trinket for personal adorn ment, and the primary object of the invention is 5 to provide such an article which comprises a laminated body, specially formed and assembled so that perfume vapors might be emitted there from. ' One of the important aims of this invention 10 is to provide an article of personal adornment which has, as a part thereof, an absorbent pad housed within an uniquely formed case which presents a trinket that might be employed as a pocket piece, a clip, or any one of a number of 15 other decorative members according to the wishes of the user. Other important aims of this invention include the formation of the component parts of an article of manufacture in such fashion as to present a 20 neat, effective and rigidly assembled unit that comprises a large number of parts, yet presents a compact body of apparently solid nature. Structural features forming important objects of the invention will be accurately described dur 25 ing the following speci?cation, referring to the ac companying drawing, wherein: Figure 1 is a top plan view of a trinket embody ing this invention. Fig. 2 is an inverted plan view of the same. 30 Fig. 3 is an edge elevation of the trinket. Fig. 4 is an enlarged, vertical, central, cross section through the trinket, and, Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the ?brous sheet of absorbing material forming a part of the 35 trinket. In the preferred embodiment of the invention, the trinket comprises a relatively thick, substan tially flat body 6 of non-absorbent material that is cast or otherwise formed to present opposed faces 40 8 and I0, both of which are convex to a desirable degree. It has been found practical and desirable to turn body 6 from bakelite or similar phenolic substance that has been highly colored for decora tive purposes. 45 A cavity l2 formed inwardly from face 8 of body 6 is joined by a plurality of apertures I4 and a ?ller aperture l6 which extend inwardly from face H) of body 6 and into communication with cavity l2. Filler opening I6 is preferably cen 50 trally disposed and the mouth thereof adjacent face I0 is ?ared so that as liquid perfume is in troduced through ?ller opening 56, the quantity thereof which ?ller opening l 6 will accommodate will be substantially sufficient to saturate to the 55 extent desired, the ?brous pad l8. This pad I8 (01. 299_'24) constitutes one of the laminations of the trinket and the same overlies the bottom of cavity l2 and extends across apertures I 4 and [6. A shoulder 20 is formed in body 6 around the annular face thereof which forms the edges of 5 cavity l2. The distance from bottom 22 of cavity l2 to shoulder 20 is slightly less than the thickness of pad I8, to- the end that when plate 24 is ?tted into cavity l2, the edge of pad l8 will be engaged by plate 24, as illustrated in Fig. 4. 10 Plate 24 is dished so that the convex outer face thereof will be in the same plane as that portion of face 8 of body 6 that circumscribes plate 24. When plate 24 is of uniform thickness, a small, unoccupied portion of cavity l2 will provide an 15 air space between the top of pad l8 and the bot tom face of plate 24 near the center thereof. The annular edge of plate 24 is in frictional engage ment with the. annular side of body 6 forming cavity l2, and when the parts of the trinket are so 20 assembled, a compact, apparently unitary article is created. Obviously, the outer face of plate 24 may be engraved, etched, or otherwise decorated and means such as a ring 28 may be attached to body 6 so as to afford a way of affixing the article 25 to the wearing apparel. Introduction of perfume through specially formed ?ller opening it will impregnate pad I8 so that perfume vapors will be emitted through apertures l4 and I6 for a long period of time. 30 Manifestly, the trinket may be used as a locket, belt buckle, pocket piece, or a suitable pin or clip structure, not here shown, may be attached to body 6 so that the trinket might be a?ixed to suit the convenience of the wearer. 35 Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is: 1. An article of personal adornment or pocket piece adapted to emit perfume vapors, compris- 4O ing a relatively thick, ?at body of non-absorbent material having a cavity formed inwardly from one face thereof and an aperture extending in wardly from the opposite face thereof into com munication with said cavity; a sheet of absorbent 45 material overlying the bottom of the cavity and forming a bottom for the said aperture; and a plate within the said cavity to hold the sheet of absorbent material in position and having its outer surface in an arc concentric with an are 50 having therein that portion of the face of the ?rst mentioned face of the said body which cir cumscribes the plate. 2. An article of personal adornment or pocket piece adapted to emit perfume vapors, compris- 55 2 2,109,092 ing a relatively thick, ?at, disc-shaped body of non-absorbent material having a cavity formed inwardly from one face thereof and an aperture extending inwardly from the opposite face there of into communication with said cavity; a sheet of absorbent material overlying the bottom of the cavity and extending across the aperture; and a metallic, disc-shaped plate having its " annular edges in frictional engagement with the 10 walls of the body forming said cavity and its outer surface in an arc concentric with an are having therein the ?rst mentioned face of the said body, the wall forming the side of the cavity being a continuous, annular one in sealing en 15 gagement with said plate throughout its length, said aperture being positioned at the center of said cavity whereby upon introducing liquid per fume to said absorbent sheet therethrough, the said sheet will be evenly saturated, said plate 20 having a concave inner face contacting the sheet of absorbent material at its edge and extending upwardly into spaced relation to the absorbent material at its center. 3. An article of personal adornment or pocket piece adapted to emit perfume vapors, compris ing a relatively thick, ?at body of non-absorbent material having a cavity formed inwardly from one face thereof and an aperture extending in wardly from the opposite face thereof into com munication with‘said cavity; a sheet of ?brous material overlying the bottom of the cavity; and a sheet metal member plugging the cavity and oc cupying the portion thereof above said sheet of ?brous material, thewall of said body circum scribing the sheet metal member having a stepped internal shoulder formed thereon supporting and limiting the inward movement of said last men tioned member. ' 4. As a new article of manufacture, adapted to dispense perfume vapors, a unitary, laminated body of the character described comprising a ?rst lamination having a cavity formed therein from one face thereof and a plurality of aper tures extending from the opposite. face thereof into communication with said cavity; a second lamination of absorbent material within the said cavity, overlying the mouth of the apertures; and a third lamination frictionally engaged within the cavity, the wall of said ?rst mentioned lami— nation within the cavity having a shoulder ex tending therealong above the bottom of the cavity, the thickness of the second lamination be ing slightly greater than the distance of the said shoulder above the bottom of the cavity, said third lamination having a concave inner face and engaging the said second lamination at its edge as it rests upon the shoulder.
