INKSTAND‘
Frank M. Ashley, Great Kills, N. Y., assignor to
Lewis Gem-11ers, trustee, New York, N. Y.
Application December 23, 1936, Serial No. 117,272
10 Claims.
My invention relates to inkstands.
The object of my invention is to provide an
inkstand of simple construction that will hold a
considerable supply of ink in the reservoir, and
5 a cup into which ink is forced from the reservoir
and may be maintained at a higher level therein
than the level of the ink in the reservoir.
A further object is to provide a construction by
means of which the ink may be maintained at a
10 predetermined level in the cup and any surplus
ink forced therein may over?ow back into the
reservoir.
A further object is to provide a dip-tube formed
to receive a pen-holder and support a pen in the
15 ink in the cup‘ while serving as a closure for the
(Cl. 120—61)
reservoir, as illustrated, both the reservoir and
well being circular in cross section, and the parts
of the stand being shown full size and assembled
in proper normal relation to each other.
A sleeve I4 is formed to provide a dip-tube It’ 5,
at its upper end, the lower end of which is circu
lar and of less diameter than the lower end of the
pen-holder I5 which rests therein and closes it.
A soft rubber ring l6 ?ts between the lower
end of the dip-tube and upper end of the cup l1, 10
said cup being ?tted in tight frictional relation
into the sleeve [4 and carried thereby, the said
cup being adjustable as to height therein where
by the top of the cup may be located at the de
A further object is to provide a construction
that will protect the ink from the atmosphere by
sired distance below the dip-tube opening l8 151
which is slightly larger in diameter than that of
the inner diameter of the ring l6, thus permit
ting the lower end of the pen-holder to ?t in air
the use of a pen-holder which ?ts into the dip
tight relation in the ring.
said dip-tube.
20 opening in air-tight relation therewith; the ink
stand and pen-holder forming an inkstand set.
Referring to the drawing which forms a part
of this speci?cation:
Fig. 1 is a plan view of an inkstand illustrating
a
form
of construction embodying my invention.
25
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view illustrating a
preferred form of construction in which the cup
is located close to the under side of the top of
the reservoir.
Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view in which the
30
cup is located at a lower level than that shown in
Fig. 2, and showing a pen-holder, illustrated in
dotted lines, located in normal position in the
dip-tube and closing the dip opening located at
35 the lower end thereof. ‘
Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view on line 4-4
of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view thru the
sleeve portion which serves as a part of a plung
40 er by means of which ink is forced from the res
ervoir to the dip-tube and cup portion.
Fig. 6 is a vertical sectional View of the cup
portion.
Fig. 7 is a transverse sectional view on line
4.5 1-1 of Fig. 6.
[0 indicates the body portion of the stand which
is shown as made from pressed glass and formed
in a single piece.
The body portion may be made of other suit
50 able material but when made of plastic material
the top ill’ must be made separate from the lower
square portion and secured thereon by cementing
the parts together.
The reservoir l l is formed with a well 12 which
55 extends downward from the bottom l3 of the
The cup is cylindrical and is provided with 20
a vertically extending channel I9 which extends
from its bottom end to a transverse passage I9’
leading into the upper end of the cup and formed
by removing a portion of the rim of the cup as il
lustrated, and a channel 20 is formed in the op
posite side of the cup and leads from a similar
transverse passage 20' downwardly to an open
ing 2| in the sleeve and located above the wall
of the well 12, as illustrated.
The outer diameter of the sleeve I4 is slightly
less than that of the inner diameter of the well
l2 and the weight of the sleeve and its parts
carried thereby is such that‘ it will ?oat in the
ink when the said parts are made of hard rubber
and of the dimensions as shown in the draw
ing prior to the cup being ?lled with ink, but will
sink to the normal position shown when the cup
is ?lled with ink, as illustrated.
If the parts are made of glass, the sleeve and its
parts will not ?oat in the ink at any time when
the dimensions are as shown in the drawing, but
if the diameter of the sleeve and cup! is made
much greater than shown, and made of thin hard
rubber, the sleeve may be made to ?oat in the
ink when the reservoir is ?lled, as will be readily
understood.
It will be noted that the disc or ring l6 over
lies the passages l9 and I9’, thus causing the ink
to flow laterally when ?owing over the top of
the cup‘ to fill the same, and preventing the ink

from spurting upward into the dip-tube in the
act of ?lling the cup.
The device operates as follow:
The reservoir may be ?lled with ink by pour
ing the ink slowly into the dip-tube, the ink ?ow~ 55

ing downward thru the passages l9’ and I9 and
20’ and 20 and opening 2| into the reservoir, or
the sleeve may be removed from the reservoir
and the reservoir ?lled about one-half full after
which the sleeve is replaced, and by a gentle
pumping movement; of the sleeve, ink is partially
trapped in the well below the plunger comprising
the sleeve and cup carried thereby, and ink is
forced upward thru the passages l9 and I9’ into
10 the cup and the surplus ink will over?ow the cup
upper side of the cup may be returned to the
reservoir.
5. An inkstand comprising a body portion hav
ing a reservoir for ink and a well formed in the
bottom thereof, a sleeve and cup portion the
lower ends of which form a plunger which rests
in said well, said sleeve and cup contributing to
form a passage for ink leading from said well to
the upper end of said cup, and a passage leading
from the upper end of said cup to the lower part 10
and return to the reservoir thru the passages
of the reservoir above its bottom.
20', 20, and 2|.
6. The construction de?ned in claim 5, together
with; and a dip tube opening formed in the upper
end of the sleeve and spaced a predetermined dis
tance from the upper end of the cup.

7. An inkstand having a body portion with a
reservoir for ink therein, a sleeve having a dip
tube opening formed in the upper end thereof, a
soft rubber ring located adjacent to said opening
and the inner edge of which is slightly less in di 20
ameter than that of said opening in the dip-tube,
and a cup carried by said sleeve the upper end oi~
which is located under said ring; the construc
tion embodying a passage leading from the lower
end of said sleeve to the upper end of said cup.
8. An inkstand comprising a body portion hav
The outlet 2| is located at the low point in the
sleeve to prevent any possibility of raising it
15 above the top of the reservoir in the pumping op
eration and causing ink to flow therefrom out
side of the stand.
The inkstand as thus constructed requires no
sealed joints and may be easily cleaned, and the
20 only soft part is the rubber ring I6 which could
be dispensed with if desired and a pen-holder
having a cork or soft rubber lower end would
serve to make a tight joint with the dip-tube at
its lower end to completely seal the opening.
25 It is obvious that it is not necessary that the
dip-tube opening should be closed in air-tight re"
lation except when serving as a cork to prevent
evaporation of ink from the cup, and in so far
as the other features of construction are con
cerned the pen-holder serves no required func
tion.
Having thus described my invention I claim as
new:
1. An inkstand comprising a body portion hav
* ing a reservoir for ink and a well formed inthe
bottom thereof, a sleeve and a cup carried there
by formed with a passage for ink leading from the
well to the upper side of the cup, the lower end
of said sleeve and cup normally positionedin said
well adjacent the wall and serving as a plunger to
force ink from the well thru said passage into
the cup over the rim thereof to ?ll‘the same.
2. The construction de?ned‘ in claim 1, to
gether with; and a second passage leading from
“ the upper side of the cup to the reservoir.
3. An inkstand comprising a body portion hav
ing a reservoir for ink and a well formed. in the
bottom thereof, a sleeve having a cup carried
thereby formed with a passage for ink leading
