SANVITARY FRUIT PICK Filed Feb. 20, i956 I .l 01425 Mfg,
Patented May 4, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SANITARY FRUIT PICK 4 Claims.
This invention relates to a sanitary pick for impaling and holding of fruit particularly in public places, like clubs, social affairs or the like.
'It is aimed to provide a novel structure which may be made in a single piece from any suitable material, and bear advertising if desired, to be wrapped attractively in cellophane or otherwise and a structure which will have a portion enabling gripping thereof'without soiling of the i fingers or a glove worn by the user.
The more specific objects and advantages will become apparent from a consideration of the description following taken in connection with accompanying drawing illustrating an operative 15 embodiment.
In said drawing:-
Figure l is a view showing the pick suspended on a drinking glass or other receptacle;
Figure 2 is a plan view showing the pick balanced on a drinking glass or other receptacle;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the pick;
Figure 4 is an enlarged fragmentary edge view looking from the left of Figure 3; and
Figure 5 is a detail section taken on the line 5-5 of Figure 3.
Referring specifically to the drawing, the pick as a whole is designated in and it may be made of any suitable material and for instance, celluloid, bakelite, indurated fiber, wood, hard rubber, cork and metal, beetleware, bonnyware, kenmoreware, bone, ivory, hard paper or any analogous material.
The body or element l has an elongated tapered pick portion I2 leading to a widened upper end l3 having a depending projection or hook l4 whereby the pick may be suspended from the upper edge of a glass or receptacle l5 as suggested in Figure 1. The widened portion l3 being above any part which might contact with the contents of the receptacle 15, will always be dry and thus may be safely grasped without soiling of the fingers or of gloves when worn. The slot 16, provided by the depending element I4, is preferably flared at its entrance as at ll to facilitate free movement of the pick about the glass or attachment thereof to the glass.
It will be noted that in one side of the pick adjacent the lower end of the projection 14, a slot or notch I8 is cut in one side edge of the pick. The walls of such notch 18 are diagonal as shown and the lower end of projection I4 is also diagonal to accord with the uppermost diagonal wall of the notch. This notch permits the pick to be disposed horizontally across the top of the glass in a balanced condition as shown in Figure 2, the notch, receiving the upper edge of the glass.
An opening I9 is preferably provided through the widened portion I3 and such portion or any part of the pick may contain advertising matter if preferred.
It is obvious that the device may be manufactured in any desired size or sizes. It is adapted to be used in place of the old tooth pick as a more sanitary and convenient pick and to be disposed of each time after used where one has been served with a drink such as cocktails or sours or cordials or lemonades or sundaes or in any form.
This will induce trade because people like to eat something when enjoying a drink such as lemonade, cocktail or whiskey sour or cordial or sundaes. When they use this sanitary pick to serve the fruit with these drinks, people can enjoy them before the drink or after. Before the people could not get their cherries or olives or any' other fruit when served with a drink because they would have to call for a spoon or something to get the fruit out with, or else they would have to tip the glass up and try and catch it in their mouth, spilling frequently resulting. Before people would ask for a spoon or something to get the fruit with, they would let it go to waste, and the fruit would come back to the counter in the glass for the soda clerk or bartender to discard. Now, if the customer had been served with a sanitary, utility pick, they could eat their fruit and that maybe would call for another drink as they are satisfied with their service now:
Various changes may be resorted to provided they fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.
I claim as my invention:--
1. A pick of the class described, comprising a flat tapered body, and the wider end of said body having an enlargement extending from the side edge thereof and in the same plane as said body and provided with a notch forming a hook for supporting engagement on the edge of a tumbler or the like.
2. A pick of the class described having a fiat tapered body, a cut away portion in one side thereof providing a notch to receive the edge of a tumbler or the like, said notch having walls diagonal to the flat sides of said body.
3. A pick of the class described having a pick member, a laterally widened portion at the top of said pick member for engagement by the fingers, and a projection depending from one edge 55 of said widened portion in spaced relation to the pick member and providing a hook to permit engagement with a tumbler or the like, and said side edge of the pick member adjacent said projection having a notch therein, said notch having walls diagonal to the intersected sides of the member.
4. A pick of the class described having a pick member, a laterally widened portion at the top of said pick member for engagement by the fingers, a projection depending from one edge of said widened portion in spaced relation to the pick member and providing a hook to permit engagement with a tumbler or the like, said side edge of the pick member adjacent said projection having a notch therein, the walls of said notch being diagonal to the intersected sides of said member, and said projection having its extremity diagonally cut to conform to the uppermost diagonal wall of said notch.
