L. A. BOYER EVAPORATED CREAM PITCHER Filed May 1, 1925 ,l'nzlenfoni Patented July 28, 1925.
LILLIAN A. BOYER, or ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
EVAPORA'IED-CREAM rrrcnna.
Application filed May 1, 1925. Serial No. 27,278.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LILLIAN A. BoYER, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented certain new and usefullmprovements in Evaporated-Cream Pitchers, of which the following is a specification containing afull, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part hereof.
My invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter particularly described and distinctly claimed.
The object of my invention is to provide an ornamental, and practically airtight 'container for evaporated cream (or condensed milk), which will present the appearance upon a dining-room table of a cream-pitcher, and which shall protect the evaporated cream (or other liquid contained in the pitcher) from contamination by external dirt or other material, and at the same time be instantly uncovered, in order that the cream or other contained liquid may be poured out of the spout of said improved pitcher.
In the drawing Fig. 1 is a side-elevation of a creampitcher having my invention applied thereto.
Fig. 2 is a top plan-view of the spout and valve attachment, removed from the body of the pitcher, and showing the valve or slide in an open position, to permit the cream to flow freely from the pitcher.
Fig. 3 is a view similar to the last, with the valve or slide closed, and
Fig. 4 is a vertical section of the upper portion of the pitcher, and its closure-attachment, the section being taken onthe line 4.-4 of Fig. 3.
The numeral 1 designates the body of the pitcher or other container, and (in the present illustration of my invention) the same is preferablymade of aluminum, in
order that it will be of light weight, and capable of being highly polished upon its exterior; although, of course, said body may be made of any other suitable material. It has the usual handle 2 and base 3.
At the upper end of said body 1 is a'contracted neck 4 that is tapered to practically a knife-edge at its upper end.
Fitted closely. upon the said tapered neck 4.- of said body 1 is a downwardly-extending circular-flange 5 of the valve or'slide attachment or member 6.
Said-flange 5 of thesaid valve-attachment 6 may be held in proper position upon saidx' tapered neck 4 of said body 1 by any known means or method, or it can be made integral with said body.
. Preferably, said valve-attachment and its flange 5 are detachable from said neck 4, and are held in position solely by frictional contact between the parts, for convenience, in filling the body with cream, and in washing the parts after use.
However, it is not necessary to remove the valve-attachment in filling the pitcher with cream, owing to the construction and operation of the valve or slide, which can be quickly moved to an open position, and allow the cream or other liquid to be poured into the pitcher through the valved spoutopening, as will be presently described in detail.
At the upper end of the circular flange 5 is a horizontal partition .7, within said valve-attachment 6; and said. partition completely covers the upper end of the pitcher body, except at a point adjacent the spout 8, where a valved spout-opening 9 is formed in said partition, and permits the cream or other liquid to be poured from the pitcher directly into said spout, when said opening is uncovered by its vlave or slide 10.
The valve or slide 10 is pivotally attached :to the'said partition 7 by a pivot 11, which is located centrally of said partition in the present case, so that the outer curved edge of said valve is in close contact at all times with the adjacent vertical wall of the attachment 6, thereby enabling said valve to form a tight joint with said wall, and completely close the exit from the pitcher, when said valve is in a closed position, as shown in Figs. 3 and 4.
Said valve .10 may be opened or closed I by grasping a lug or handle 12, which pro-- jects upwardly from said valve, within the open upper end of the said valve-attachment 6.
In this connection, it may be pointed out that the walls of the valve-attachment 6 act as a shield for the valve 10 and its handle 12, to conceal them from view, when (as' in Fig. 1) the device is viewed from the side, front, or back; and, at the same time, said walls protectsaid Valve and its handle from injury by accidental contact with dishes and other hard articles.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is The combination with an evaporated cream-pitcher provided with a tapered neck; of a valve-attachment having downwardly and upwardly-extending circular flanges and adapted to frictionally and detachably engage the said tapered neck of the said cream pitcher; of a horizontal partition located centrally within and concealed by the said downwardly and upwardly-extending circular flanges of the said valve-attach ment; of a spout projecting laterally and 15 the said horizontal partition, and a valve pivotally attached to the said partition, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specificationin presence of two subscribing witnesses.
LILLIAN A. BOYER.
