Application August 28, 1937, Serial No. 161,374 Cl 2 Claims. (Cl. 131-176) This‘ invention relates to devices such as to Fig. 2‘is a perspective view of the tobacco pipe bacco pipes. ' with the cover removed. One object of the invention is to provide ato Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of the cover.‘ bacco pipe'havingimproved means for covering Fig. 4 is-a vertical sectional view of the pipe the pipe bowl to prevent wind from blowing burn ing tobacco from the-bowl, and to regulate the burning of the tobacco. I have observed that‘ tobacco burns more read ily in a pipe bowl in thepresence of wind than 10 when‘ the atmosphere is calm. In the former case, I ?nd that-a cover is a de?nite aid in smoking, whereas in calm weather thecover acts as an obstruction‘ for draft‘ ‘and renders it dif ficult ‘to keep the pipe vlit. Hence I have con ceived of a removable cover, and preferably one bowl, with the cover in dot-dash lines in course *‘ 5" of being applied thereto.v Fig. 5 is a horizontal fragmentary sectional view of the pipe bowl. Fig. 6 is a verticalsectional fragmentary View of the tobacco pipe. Fig. 7 is a fragmentary View in side elevation of a modi?ed tobacco pipe. The advantages of the invention as here out lined are best realized when all of its features and instrumentalities are combined in one and that the smoker can readily apply and remove the same structure, but, useful devices may be without-requiring tools,'nor any particular ma _ produced embodying vless than thewhole. nipulation, and which shall aiford‘ a neat-ap It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to pearing pipe both- with and without the cover, which the invention appertains, that the same and yet permit the cover- to beopened and closed may be incorporated in ,several di?erent con in normal use without detachment from the structions. The accompanying drawing, there pipe bowl. I a fore, is submitted merely as showing the preferred ' It is therefore'an object‘ of the invention to provide-a tobacco pipe which shall provide the advantages noted without’any of the correspond ing disadvantages, and in particular to provide a cover that‘ is pivotally- engageable with a pipe 151 exempli?cationof the invention. 7 Referring in detail to the drawing, l0 denotes a tobacco pipe embodying the invention. The same 25 may include a. pipe bowl I I having an integral stem portion :l2, anda detachable extension stem bowl by resilient action for easy attachment and _ portion or mouth piece l3. detachment. 30 Another object of the invention is to furnish a tobacco pipe having a cover pivotally mounted thereon according to an improved arrangement such that a minimum of clearance space is re quired in swinging the cover between open and closed positions. A further object of the invention is to pro vide a tobacco pipe having relatively few and simple parts, and which is inexpensive to manu facture, compact, neat, durable, reliable and ef 40 ficient to a high degree in use. Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the speci?cation pro ceeds. With the aforesaid objects in view, the inven tion consists in the novel combinations and ar rangements of parts hereinafter described in their preferred embodiments, pointed out in the subjoined claims, and illustrated in the annexed drawing, wherein like parts are designated by the same reference characters throughout the several views. In the drawing: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the tobacco pipe with the cover shown in closed position, and 55 in dot dash lines in open position. ‘ The pipe bowl H is preferably of generally cir cular or cylindrical shape, this being of rela 30 tively universal con?guration for tobacco pipes. Opposite sides of the pipe bowl II are formed to provide ?at parallel seating surfaces I4 for a purpose hereinafter described. _ Cooperating with the pipe bowl is a cover I5 35 which may comprise a disc portion l6 having draft perforations l1. Depending from the disc portion are integral legs l8. The latter may have parallel inner faces l9 spaced to snugly receive therebetween the pipe bowl II, with the faces l9 seating on those at M. ‘ The outer surfaces of the legs I 8 may be of are shaped form to com plement the outside surface of thepipe bowl to maintain a circular con?guration as shown in Fig. 1, when the cover is in closed position. To permit easy removability of'the cover l5 while providing for opening and closing move ment of the cover in its'attached position, I pro vide alined projections or tits 2!)‘ on the legs l8 at the inner faces l9. For pivotally receiving 50 these projections, I provide depressions or re cesses 2| in the opposite faces '14 of the pipe bowl. By constructing the cover l5 of a material such as-briar wood, composition, or the like, the 56 2,135,179 2 legs l8 are adapted to be sprung apart, so that the- cover may be manipulated as shown in dot .dash lines in Fig. 4 to secure the cover to the pipe bowl. The latter engages the tits or heads VI 20 to spring the legs apart, until the tits are re ceived in the recesses or sockets 2!. By exerting a su?icient pull on the cover I5, the tits 2!] may be sprung out of the recesses 2| and the cover 10 removed. In swinging the cover I5 about the tits 2!] be tween open and closed positions considerable clearance is required at the disc portion 1670f the cover. This necessitates a special con?gura iton of the cover which increases the cost there of. Furthermore, a cut away is required in the pipe bowl; as shown in Fig. 7, which, when the cover is detached, destroys the effect of regularity in the pipe bowl, and reduces the capacity there of. I ?nd that these drawbacks can be di minished or avoided by offsetting the recesses'2l and the tits 20 toward one side of the center of ‘the pipe bowl, as, shown'in Fig. 1. A compara tively small bevel 22 will then afford all the _requisite clearance while permitting the ‘disc portion IE to be of even thickness. In fact, the bevel at 22 affords a desirable air opening to facilitate draft. If it be desired to reduce the stress that re sults in. springing the cover onto the pipe bowl, as in Fig. 4, I may provide a slight bevel at each ?at face M at the bottom thereof as shown at 23. Hence the cover l5 may be ‘attached to the pipe bowl from the general tilted position in dicated in dot dash lines in Fig. 1, by moving the cover legs [8 upward and toward the left to cause the tits 2!} to pass over the bevels 23 and snap into recesses 2|. This arrangement will prevent accidental upward removal of the cover, and yet, when the cover is in open position, the 40 disc portion i6 thereof rests upon the stem por tion l2 as shown, avoiding accidental release of the cover. If the tits andtheir recesses be generally cen trally disposed as indicated‘at 25 in the device 26, the bowl must be substantially cut away as at 2'! and the disc part 15a of the cover must be correspondingly shaped and thickened._ These irregularities are undesirable as pointed out above. However, a bevel as at 23 may still be used. ' It will thus be seen that I have provided a tobacco pipe which ful?lls the objects of the invention and is well adapted for practical use, and that the invention is also applicable to pipe bowls of other contours. Iclaim: _ 1. A tobacco pipe including a pipe bowl, a 1O member including a cover for the bowl and legs dependingly connected to the cover, the bowl being disposed between said legs, and pivot means interengaging said legs and opposite sides of the bowl for swinging opening and closing movement 15 .of the, cover about the axis of the pivot means, said member including resilient material so that the legs are adapted to be sprung apart for en gagement and disengagement of the member at the pivot means, the latter including releasably 20 interengaging head and socket portions, the sides of the bowl being beveled from the pivot means to provide cams inclined for facilitating interen gagement of the head and, socket portions, and the bevels being remote from the upper part of the bowl to prevent accidental upward release of the member. ‘ r 2. A tobacco pipe including a pipe bowl, a one piece member including a cover for the bowl and legs dependingly connected to the cover, the bowl being disposed between said legs, and pivot means interengaging said legs and opposite sides of the bowl for swinging opening and closing movement of the cover about the axis of the pivot means, said member consisting of briar 35 wood so that the legs are adapted to be slightly sprung apart for engagement and disengagement of the member at the pivot means, the latter in cluding releasably interengaging head and socket portions, and the sides of the bowl‘being beveled 40 from the pivot means to provide cam inclines for facilitating interengagernent of the head and socket portions withoutcausing breakage of said member, the bevelsjbeing'remote from the upper portion of the bowl so that accidental upward 45 removal of said member is avoided. . _ ‘ FREDERICK HUDES.
