Jan. 21, 1936. H. c. SEIPEL ET AL CUP HOLDER Filed Oct. 24. 1934 I nventm's y Serke/ 72211714.. Wei-gel Attorney Patented Jan. 21, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT orrlcs CUP HOLDER Harry (J. Seipel and Paul A. Yerger, Easton, Pa. Application October 24, 1934, Serial No. 749,841

1 Claim.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in cup holders and has for its primary object to provide, in a. manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of thisrcharacter comprising a novel construction through the medium of which the usual tapereddrinking cups, containing either hot or cold liquids, may be handled without discomfort.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a cup holder of the aforementioned character which may be expeditiously applied to a conventional tapered cup and which, when in position, will be retained by friction.

Still another important object of the invention is to provide a cup holder of the character at low cost.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study or the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein like characters .of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:-

Figure 1 is a view in side elevation, showing a holder in accordance with the present invention mounted on a drinking cup.

Figure 2 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a view in vertical cross section through one side of the holder and cup.

Figure 4 is a perspective view, showing the manner in which the invention is used.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the-invention which has been illustrated comprises a ring I of suitable material, preferably paper, having circumferentially extending corrugations 2 formed therein. The reference numeral 3 designates a conventional tapered drinking cup of any suitable material upon which the ring I is adapted to be mounted.

The ring I is formed from a straight strip of longitudinally corrugated paper or other suitable material bent to substantially circular form and 5 having its end portions overlapping and secured together, as at l, by suitable means, such as an adhesive. As illustrated to advantage in Figure 3 of the drawing, the corrugations 2 in the ring I progressively increase in depth from the uppermost to the lowermost of said corrugations, thus providing a ring having an inner periphery which tapers in conformity with the taper of the cup 3, while the outer periphery of said ring has comparatively little or no taper. By reason of the conforming tapers of the cup 3 and the inner periphery of the ring I, said ring will frictionally grip the cup and remain in position thereon even when said cup is resting on its base.

In use, the ring I is slipped on the cup before I the liquid is poured in said cup. In addition to facilitating obtaining a good grip on the holder, the corrugations 2 space the thumb and fingers from the cup and provide air chambers therebetween for dissipating the heat.

It is believed that the many advantages of a cup holder constructed in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood, and although a preferred embodiment of the invention is as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed is:- as

A cup holder for a tapered cup, comprising a sleeve formed of flexible material and said sleeve being provided with circumferentially extending corrugations which gradually increase in depth from the one end of the sleeve to the other end 40 thereof, the corrugations forming interior and exterior ribs and separating grooves, the interior ribs forming a plurality of spaced gripping points for a tapered cup placed in the holder and the exterior projections providing finger holds, said sleeve being of considerable less length than the length of the cup to be held and adapted to engage an intermediate part of the cup.
