PETER D. BELLES, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

BOTTLE-ear.

Application filed February 9, 1915.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, PETER D. BELLES,':.L citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Bottle-Cap, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to bottles and jars and has particular reference to closures for such devices.

Among the objects of the invention is to provide a temporary closure for a milk bottle or other container from which the liquid contents are to be dispensed periodically.

More specifically stated, I provide by this improvement a means for easily and quickly slipping or snapping into position upon the mouth of a bottle, and which, when the bottle is upright, will be in the closed position, preventing the contents of the bottle from becoming contaminated by dust, dirt or other offensive surrounding conditions, the construction being such when the bottle (and by the term bottle as used herein 1 mean to cover any sort of container) is tilted, the contents may be free to pour therefrom without obstruction.

The foregoing and many other objects of the invention will hereinafter be more fully described and claimed and illustrated in the drawings forming a part of this specification, in which like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views, and in which- Figure 1 is a vertical sectional View of a bottle neck and my improvement attached thereto, the same being indicated in full lines in sealed position and indicating in dotted lines the keeper in open position; Fig. 2 shows the device in pouring position; and Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the lower portion of the shell.

The several parts of this device may be made of any suitable materials, and the relative sizes and proportions, as well as the general design of the mechanism, may be varied to a considerable extent without departing from the spirit of the invention hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, I show at 10 the neck of a bottle having at its mouth a head 11 around or upon which the attachment is secured.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented ea. in, min.

Serial No. 7,060.

The improvement comprises a shell 12 of substantially hollow conical form and com- 'prising a shoulder portion 13 adjacent the base thereof adapted to press snugly upon the bead 11 or against a washer is if it is the bottle after it is empty, by grasping the shell and tilting it forcibly from the position indicated. A spring ring 16 may be used,

if necessary or desirable, to increase the grip between the tongues 15 and the bottle.

At 17 I show a perforated disk or plate secured to the base 13 as, for instance, through screw threads, and having a threaded hole 18 in its center. At 19 I show a cup also provided with perforations in its lower portlon extending downwardly from the plate 17 into the neck of the bottle, but spaced therefrom, providing room for an annular cork 20 or the like, making a snug and frictional connection between the interior portion of the attachment and the inner wall of the bottle neck. This cup 19 may be secured to the plate 17 in any suitable manner as by means of screw threaded connections 21. The plate 17 and the cup 19 serve 1n one sense as strainers for the liquid contents of the bottle while the same are being dispensed. These parts also positively exclude large particles of dust or other extraneous matter from the bottle when the attachment is in position.

The upper end ormouth of the shell is flared outwardly slightly and provided with a spherical seat 22 for a slidable valve 23 shown herein in the form of a ball having a radius equal to the radius of the seat Adjacent the mouth 22 of the shell and closely below the same is provided a spider 24: having a plurality of large openings through which the contents of the bottle may flow freely, and provided at its center with a found desirable to use a washer or gasket to threaded hole 25 of the same size and char acter as the hole 18 formed in the center of the plate. a 1 h At 26 I show a substantially hemispherical cap having a concavity adapted to'receive substantially one-half of the slide ball 23. A threaded shank 27 is secured within the center of the cap 26 and extends thence downwardly through the holes 25 and 18, whereby the Shank and the cap are held in any desired adjusted position with respect to the mouth of the shell. The cap and shank may be regarded as a keeper for the valve 23 controlling its slidable movements. At the inner end of the shank is a nut or head 28 which limits the outward movement of the shank and cap. Y

Topositively lock or close th'ebottle cap as for transportation purposes or to prevent the spilling of the contents of: the bottle whenit is inclined or inverted, the guard cap 26 'andits shank are screwed downward, holding the valve against the seat 22 as shown in full lines in Fig. 1, If, however, the contentsof the bottle are to be dispensed therefrom, the guard cap 26 is screwed up wardly from the valve as shown in dotted lines, leaving the valve free toslide between the cap 26 and the seat 22., VVhen the bottle is tilted, therefore, as shown in Fig. 2, the valve slides freely away from the seat 22, allowing the contents of the bottle to flow freely, as already explained, without interference o n account of the valve. Upon returning the-bottle, then, to upright position, the valve slides freely and promptly to the seat 22, closing the same. The bottle may be tilted as many times as may be desired, as above described, for the purpose of emptying the contents therefrom, and after the bottle is empty, the attachment may be read ily removed and placed upon another bottle for similar use,

A device made in accordance with this invention is of a simple and neat construction; is one which possesses a considerable degree of ornamentation for the bottle; constitutes a construction easy and cheap to manufacture, and isone which i-sefiicient and reliable inpractice.

I claim: I

1. In a device ofthe character set forth, the combination of a rigid shell having an annular base and securing means proiecting downward-1v from said base, a perforated plate secured within the base and having a central threaded hole, a valve slidable totent of movement of the valve from the shell,

said keeper including a shank extending,

through the valve and having threaded engagement with said plate hole, substantially as set forth.

2. The combination of a rigid shell, means to SGCUIG the shell in fixed position upon a bottle neck, said shell having an annular base and a perforated plate secured within said base, a strainer cup secured to the plate and extending thence downwardly, said shell having a valve seat at its mouth, a spider secured in the shell just below said month, said spider and plate each having a, central threaded hole, a valve sli'dable toward and from said seat, and a keeper for said valve, said keeper comprising a cap conforming to the upper half of the valve and a shank extending loosely through the valve and having threaded engagement with both of said holes.

3. Thecombination of a rigid shell. means to secure the shell detachably to a bottle neck, said shell having a spherical valve seat at its upper end, a spherical valve fitted to said valve seat and slidable outwardly therefrom, and a keeper to control the slidable movement of the valve, said keeper comprising a hemispherical cap having a concavity conforming to the upper half of the valve, and means to hold the cap in adjusted position with respect to the shell.

4-. The combination with a bottle neck having an annular bead surrounding its mouth, of a shell having 'a base cooperating, with said bead and also having a series of flexible tongues extending thence downwardlv and inwardly around said head, a strainer cup secured within the base and extending thence downwardly in spaced relation to the inner wall of the neck, an annular cork fitted between the cup and said neck wall. and valve mechanism adjustably related to the mouth of the shell, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I have "signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

PETER D. BELLES.
