HENRY G. CORDLEY, OF GLEN RIDGE, NEW JERSEY.

DRIP-CUP AND SUPPORT.

- Application filed January 6, 1917.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY G. ConnLnY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Glen Ridge, in the county of Essex, State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Drip-Cups and Supports, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.

My invention relates to drip cups for water-cooler stands and has for its object to provide a drip cup to receive the drip from the water cooler faucet and overflow from glasses or cups and direct it to a suitable water receptacle, which will be simple in construction, attractive in appearance, easily kept clean, not liable to rust and readily removable. My invention further consists in means for firmly but removably holding the drip cup in position without direct or permanent attachment to it.

lVith these and other objects hereinafter explained in View my invention consists in the construct on and combination of elements hereinafter described and claimed.

Referring to the drawings.

Figure 1 is a side view of a water cooler and stand provided with my improved drip cup and holder.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the drip cup holder the drip cup being indicated by dotted lines and Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the drip cup.

In the drawings, 1 indicates a water cooler of well known construction supplied with water from an inverted bottle 2. and 3. indicates a faucet for drawing off the cooled water. The water cooler is supported on a stand here shown as comprising a top ring 4, legs 5, and braces 6 arranged to support a bucket or jar 7 to receive the waste water.

8 is the drip cup. struction preferably of glass or porcelain, shaped as shown in plan view in Fig. 3 with a broad front part 9 and a narrow rearwardly extending neck 10 with sides 11 relatively low in front and relatively high toward the rear end the highest points of the sides being about one third the distance from the rear end of the neck to the front of the broad part. The bottom of the drip cup is substantially flat and is provided in its upper face with drainage grooves leading to the rear end of the neck 10. The drainage grooves as shown comprise a central Specification of Letters Patent.

This is a rigid con- Patented Feb. 12, 1918.

groove 12 beginning at a point near the front of the front part 9 and gradually deepening toward the rear and having branches 13, 14, 15 and 16 each beginning near the front of the front part 9 and joining the central groove at suitable points. Along the edge of the bottom of the drip cup are additional drainage grooves 17 and 18 each beginning near the front of the front part 9 and leading along the sides to the rear end of the neck 10. The sides are preferably provided at their upper edges with an outwardly extending rim flange 19 The drip cup is supported in position below the faucet 3 by means depending from the top ring 4 of the supporting stand. The means shown consists in a single rod having its ends secured at 20 and 21 to the top ring 4; and bent into shape to hold the drip cup in position and support it. From the attaching point 21 the rod extends downward at 22 to a shoulder 23 where it bends outward and then downward at 24C to a point below the level of the outer face of the bottom of the drip cup and is then bent to extend forward at 25. At the end of the portion 25 it is bent upward at 26 for a short distance and then extends laterally across the front of the drip cup at 27. The other part of the rod extends downward at 28 from the securing point 21 to a shoulder 29 corresponding to shoulder 23, and then downward at 30 and then forward at 31 and upward at 32.

When the drip cup is in position the portion 27 extends across the front of the drip cup holding it against forward movement. The portions 25 and 31 extend under the hottom of the drip cup and support it. The portions 24 and 30 extend upward in rear of the broad front portion of the drip cup preventing rearward movement and the shoulders 23 and 29 extend over the upper edges of the sides and hold the drip cup down. The portions 22 and 28 are so spaced apart as to permit the neck 10 to be readily inserted between them until the highest parts of the sides are past the shoulders 23 and 29 and the broader portions of the sides come in contact with the portions 21 and 30 only when the front of the drip cup is in line with the inner edge of the portion 27.

The supporting rod is preferably slightly resilient so as to yield slightly as the drip cup is pressed into place and to grip it when in place. The portions 25 and 31 are inclined upward and forward suificiently to support the drip cup at such an inclination that any liquid which may fall into the drip cup will run back through neck 10 and fall into the waste bucket 7.

By making the drip cup of glass or porcelain itssurfaces may be'made smooth so that nothing will cling to them and they can readily be wiped clean. The construction of the supporting means makes it possible to hold the drip cup firmly in position without drilling or otherwise making holes in it for attachment of the supporting means, thus making it possible to use a drip cup of a material other than metal.

It will of course be understood that I do not desire to be limited to the precise form or arrangement shown or to the use or particular materials as it is evident that the form shown may be varied considerably without departing from the spirit of the invention and any desired material may be used.

It should also be understood that while.

the drip cup and support is primarily intended for use, with water cooler stands, it may be used for other purposes and in connection with any structure which .afiords a support for attachment of the ends of the.

supporting rod.

Having thus described my invention what I claim is: t

1. A drip cup for water cooler stands having a relatively broad front portion and a relatively narrow rear portion, in combination with supporting means extending downward on each side of the narrow portion and inclosing the broad portion.

2. A drip cup for water cooler stands having a relatively broad front portion and a relatively narrow rear portion, in combina tion with supporting means consisting of a rod extending downward on each side of the narrow portion and inclosing the'broad portion, the downwardly extending portions of the rod being provided with shoulders to fit over the sides of the drip cup.

3. A drip cup for water cooler stands hav ing a relatively bread front portion and a relatively narrow rear portion and having the sides of the narrow portion relatively higher than the sides of the broad portion in combination with supporting means consisting of. a rod/ extending downward 0n each side of the narrow portion, extending forward beneath the broad portion, and extending in front of the broad portion.

4. A drip cup for water cooler stands having a relatively broad front portion and a relatively narrow rear portion and having the sides Ofthe narrow portion relatively higher than. the sides of the broad .portion inicombination with supporting means consisting of a rod extending downward on each side of the narrow portion, extending forward beneath the broad portion and extend--' ing in front of the broad portion, the downwardly extending portions of the rod being provided with shoulders fitting over the upper edges of the sides.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature this 2nd day of January, 1917 HENRY G. CORDLEY.

Qopies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of ratents,

Washington, I). G.
