RECEPTACLE Filed May l0, 1928 31a/vanto@ Patented Mar. 31, 1931 UNrrEo STATES PATENT OFFICE WILBUB T.SOULIS, F EASTON, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO INDIVIDUAL DRINK- ING CUP COMPANY, INC., OF EASTON, PENNSYLVANIA, A CORPORATION 0F PENN- SYLVANIA RECEPTACLE A.Application illed may 10, 1928. Serial No. 276,700.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements 1n receptacles and more partlcularly to a receptacle in the lorm of a paper nested and in whichthe tablets, powders, or lthe like are so connected thereto and carried thereby that they will not interfere with the proper nesting.

A further object consists in so forming thereceptacle as to provide a recess at the bottom thereof, the tablet'or powder bein sup orted within the recess and confine wit in the marginal edge of the body.

Still another object resides in enclosing the tablet or powder within a suitable container and attaching the container within the recess of the receptacle in such a manner that it may be readily detached when it is desired to usethe tablet or powder.

Still a further object of 4the invention resides in so positioning the tablet or powder on the receptacle that accidental use thereof will be prevented and the tablet or owder will not be positioned in the receptac e to be dissolved or mixed with the liquid without a positive act on the part of the user such as removing the tablet or powder from its original position and placing the same within t rece tacle.

ith the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, my invention consists in the novel d etails of construction, and arrangement of parts, described in the following specifica- 45 tion .and illustrated in the accompanying ner that a plurality of receptacles may be drawings, and while I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of the invention, as they now appear to me, it will be understood that such changes may be made as will fall within the scope of the appended claims.

In the drawings: Fig. l is a perspective.

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation with parts shown in transverse vertical section.

Fig. 4 is a fragmental transverse vertical section through the bottom part of the re ceptacle showing a modified form of means for attaching the container for the tablet or powder to the receptacle.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmental detail of the construction shown in Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 iis a perspective of a container showing a tablet therein; and

Fig. .7 is a perspective of a container showing powder therein.

My improved form of receptacle with the tablet or powder connected thereto will be of considerable advantage to travelers although I wish it distinctly understood that lit will be eqlally as well adapted for home use. The ta let or powder may be of any desired Jform or for any desired use but in carrying out my invention I have particularly in mind the use of a tablet or powder adapted to be dissolved in Water or similar Huid to :form a gargle or a tablet or powder for use in relievingheadf aches or for 'like purpose which may be either dissolved in the liquid or may be placed in the mouth of the user and washed down. by liquid contained in the receptacle. It will be appreciated that many uses may be made of the cup and tablet or powder and my invention w1ll not be limited to a tablet or powder of any particular form, of any particular ingredients or for any particular use.

In the drawings 1 indicates a receptacle, as stated, preferably of plaper and adapted for but a s inglense, and t 's receptacle is preferably tapered, as shown, so that a number thereof may be nested to be placed in a suitable container. or dispensing device to be dispensed or withdrawn one at a time. The receptacle is formed with an inset bottom 2 providing a recess 3 therebeneath and in carrying out my invention a container 4, preferably in the form of a small envelope,.contain ing the tablet 5 or powder 5 is adapted to be positioned within the recess and, as shown more particularly in Figs. l and 2 of the drawings, secured therein by means of spots of adhesive 6 or the like placed at the corners of the container and engaged with a portion of the receptacle. The container is preferably of Waterproof and transparent material and it will be appreciated that by positioning the container with the tablet or powder within the bottom recess of the receptacle that the same does not interfere in any way with the nesting of the receptacles.

. In Figs. 4 and 5 of thevdrawings l have illustrated a slightly modified forni of means for securing a container 4 within the recess of the receptacle. In this form of the invention the container or envelope is of such a size that the corners may be bent downwardly as shown at 7 and engaged and secured by the inturned portion 8 at the bottom of the receptacle body, the inturned portion 8, as shown, extending into the recess 3 and cooperating with that portion of the body which extends beneath the bottom 2 to providea flange, beneath the bottom, which may be gripped by the user when the receptacle is used in connection with a carton, container or dispensing device adapted to have the nested stack of receptacles positioned with the bottom edge lowermost. By having the tablet or powder secured to the receptacle, against accidental displacement, it will be understood that the receptacles may be nested and dispensed with either the top edge or bottom edge lowermost.

From the above detail description it will be seen that I have provided a receptacle formed in a novel manner and adapted to have a .tablet or powder secured thereto and carried thereby in such a` position that the same will not interfere with the nesting of a lurality of cups or the dispensing thereof rom a suitable carton, container or dispensing apparatus, the tablet or powder being preferably enclosed in a sanitary condition within a container, preferably of waterproof material. The container with the tablet or powder is so attached to the receptacle that it may be readily detached, when desired, for

all

use and with the tablet or powder removed from the container it may be placed within the receptacle and dissolved in and mixed with water or other suitable liquid. If it is not desired to dissolve and mix the tablet or powder the same maybe-placed in the mouth of the user and washed down in the usual manner by drinking from the receptacle.

There is particular advantage in connecting the tablet or powder to the receptacle in such a position that it has to be detached by the user and placed within the receptacle rior to use. It can be appreciated that i the tablet or powder should be placed initially within the receptacle someone might use the receptacle not knowing that the tablet or powder was therein. This would result in undesired use or possible choking of the user.

By having the tablet or powder securely connected t0 the receptacle there is no danger of loss during Withdrawal or dispensing as would be the case if the tablet or powder was merely placed loosely within the receptacle.

Having fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. The combination with a receptacle of the character described having an inset bottom, the wall of the receptacle forming a flange projecting beyond the bottom, of a container for merchandise positioned on the outer face of the bottom within the confines of the flange, the container being detachably connected to the receptacle with the merchandise enclosed therein and adapted to be bodily removed therefrom for removing the merchandise.

2. The combination with a receptacle of the character described having an inset bottom, the wall of the receptacle forming a flange projecting beyond the bottom, of an article of merchandise positioned on the outer face of the bottom within the confines of the flange, and means also within the confines of the llanges for securing the article to the receptacle adapted to be severed from the receptacle to permit release of the article.

3. A receptacle of the character described having a supporting lange depending below at least a portion of the bottom of the receptacle to provide a recess above the lower supporting edge of the flange, and a separate article and retaining means therefor located entirely within the confines of said flange, said retaining means being adapted to permit ready removal of said article.

4. A receptacle of the character described having a supporting flange depending below at least a portion of the bottom of the receptacle to provide a recess above the lower supporting edge of the flange, and a separate article and retaining means therefor located entire-ly within the confines of said lange, said retaining means being adapted to permit ready removal of said article, the flange having an'inwardly projecting part and the retaining means having an edge portion engaging thereabove. i

5. A receptacle of the character described having a supporting flange depending below at least a portion of the bottom of the receptacle'to provide a recess above the lower supporting edge of the flange, and aseparate article and retaining means 4therefor' located entirely wit-hin the confines of said flange, said retaining means being adapted to permit ready removal of said article, the ange having an inwardly projecting part and the rea taining means having an edge portion releasably projecting thereover to provide impositive retention thereof.

In testimony' whereof I hereunto affix my signature.
