IGH/D LEVEL H. G. KUCK CONTAINER Filed May 5, 1928 55K-Jak,

Patented Oct. 6., 1931 lPATENT oFFlcE HENRY G'. KUCK, OF PEORI-A, LLINOIS CONTAINER- Application filed May a, 192s.

This invention pertains to fluid containers adapted for storage and shipping purposes. An object of the invention is to so construct a rolling liquid` containing type of container from which liquid is to be poured that it will have a heavier zone at one side of a vertical line passing through its center whereby said container will always seek an uprightA position upon being released after a dispensing act'. Y

`Another object is'to construct a container cylindrically curved through substantially three quarters of its circumference, the 'remaining portion being kan extended 'liquid containing space and which with the liquid therein will constitute a heavy Zone for re-ly turning such container to a normal upright position. 4

Still another object lies in providing an unbalanced rolling type of container having a weighted Zone resulting from the construction of the liquid containing` space of said container and Without the necessity of adding a separate part thereto as a weighting means.

In the appended drawings is shown the container of my invention wherein Figure l illustrates the container in perspective.

Figure 2 is a side elevation of said container reversed in position from that shown in Figure l and wherein is illustrated a tilted position to which the container is rolled.

Figure 3 is an elevation of a portion of the front of the container, and

Figure 4 is a transverse section of part of the container, much enlarged, showing the manner of double-seaming the edges of the parts thereof.

The container includestwo side portions 1, the form of each as may be seen, being circular for the most part, i. e., about three quarters of its peripheral measurement, the remaining portion being squared, for eX- ample, by continuing the edges thereof from points on their peripheries substantially 90 apart, in this instance.

These edges may lie at any angle relatively to one another, but in the present case form right angles creating the extended corner .is saved and employed for added capacity Serial No. 274,73.

portion 2 the point or nose of which is preferably rounded for manufacturing purposes as at 2. tated in another way, these sides l may be parts of two metal squares from which the almost circular sides are` Cut by means of dies, all corners but one being eli1ninated.

These sides l are spaced apart and a cylindricaily curved band constitutes a connecting wail 3 which follows the edges of said sides, the edges of all three members being intimately engaged in liquid tight manner by doubleseaming, for example, as shown in Figure Ll at 3. At a point that may be regardedl the top of the container there is attached to the'wall 3 a convenient handle 4 adjacent to which is an opening, not-shown,

f covered by a pouring spout denoted at G and a screw-cap 5, both the latterlying near said handle and at that side thereof farthest'from the'extended corner portion 2; l

The container may be proportioned so that the capacity of the added corner space 2 may receive a not inconsiderable quantity of the ,1 total bulk of contained liquid. For example, such space may contain two or three quarts, or even four quarts depending upon the dimensions of the container and thus if a package of live gallons capacity is determined upon it may be so made that perhaps a gallon '30 may bestored in such added space. And due to such added space the diameter of the package may be reduced fromthat required for a container of the same capacity made wholly cylindrical in form, other conditions being equal, it being remembered that the material for the added space is ordinarily wasted in making the ordinary cylindrical type. That is to say, one of the corner portions in my type and which at once serves as a heavy side both as to inherent weight and as to the liquid therein contained. Thus the package at one side of a verticalline erected from the sup porting surface and passing through the cen ter of the said package is heavier than the other so that in all positions to which tln-l package may be rolled it will return to a normal upright position'and the extended .-pori100 tion constitutes means for bringing the affair to rest.

In Figure 2 the position of rest is shown in continuous lines, and in pouring from the spout 6 the container is rolled forward raising the corner 2 which in any position of such container will always lie rearward of the mentioned erected line even though the nose of said spout may touch the supporting surface. In consequence oi this the container will naturally return to the upright position, and whether it is full or but partially filled, or even empty the result is the same. In cidentally, the container is low in cost of manufacture by reason of a saving of material since it can be made smaller while having a capacity equal to those ot larger size due to the saved extended corner 2 vrhicll, as alreadv stated, is usually eliminated as waste material.

I claim:

1. A container for a liquid having a cylindrically curved wall and adapted to roll on said wall moving its axis alongasubstantially horizontal line, such container including a liquid holding extension the walls oi" which are extensions of the said cylindrically curved wall substantially tangent thereto, and Walls closing the ends of the container conforming to the said extension, the latter acting as a weight to move the container to an upright position and to prevent the same from moving in one direction.

2. A container for a liquid having a cylindrically curved wall and adapted to roll on said wall moving its axis along a substantially horizontal line, such container including a liquid holding extension the walls ot which are extensions of the said cylindrically curved Wall substantially tangent thereto,V

and walls closing the ends of the container confornling to the said extension, the latter actin" as a Weight to move the container to an uprigilit position and to prevent the same from moving in one direction, a dispensing nozzle in the cylindrical Wall, and a handle secured to the Wall adjacent to said nozzle.

3. A container for dispensing liquids, adapted to roll, including a cylindrieally curved Wall and side Walls, said cylindrical Wall. being extended at one point outward and beyond the curve thereof, the extended portion and said side Walls forming an added liquid containing space open throughout into the main space, there being a dispensing opening in the cylindrical wall substantially diametrically opposite the created extension, and a handle adjacent the opening and lying nearest the extension.

4. A rolling liquid dispensing container including side Walls, and a wall the major portion of which is cylindrical, a portion of the cylindrical Wall and portions of the side walls extending beyond the normal line of curvature of the cylindrical Wall from points substantially 90 apa-rt on the latter providing both an extended liquid space and a rotation stop for the container.

5. A rolling liquid dispensing container including side Walls and a Wall the major portion of which is cylindrical, a portion of the cylindrical wall and portions of the side walls extending beyond the normal line of curvature ofthe cylindrical Wall from points substantially 900 apart on the latter both an extended liquid space and a rotation stop for the container there being a dispensing opening in the cylindrical Wall substantially diametrieally opposite the thus extended stop.

(S. A rolling dispensing container including side walls a Wall the major portion of which is cylindrical, a portion of the cylindri cal Wall and portions of the side walls extending beyond the normal line of curvature tangent to said cylindrical wall providingl both an extending liquid containing space and a rotation stop for the container.

7. A rolling' dispensing container comprising end walls and a supporting Wall the major portion of which is cylindrical, a portion of the last named wall and the end walls extending beyond the normal line of curvature of the cylindrical `vall creating a rotation stop and an extended liquid containing space Wholly open into tbe containers interior, there being a dispensing opening in the c vlindrically curved Wall substantially opposite the extended portion, and a handle adjacent said opening.

In testimony whereof I ailix my signature.
