' BURIAL URN Filed Oct. 18. 1943 lull MIIIHH V 1mm ll 5 J fl' I I d a i a i Patented Sept. 25, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT", OFFICE 3 Claims.

The present invention relates to improvements in burial urns for confining ashes derived from the cremation of human bodies or the like; and

has for its primary object the provision of an n improved crematory or burial urn which is extremely simple and durable in construction and efficient in use.

It has heretofore been common commercial practice to construct Crematory urns of corrosion-resistant materials such as bronze or other rust resisting metals, or of stone and ceramic material. The bronze urns were by far the least expensive and more durable and practical because they could more effectively resist breakage due to impact, and both of these prior. types of urns were capable of indefinitely resisting corrosion and possible deterioration when buried in various types of soil. It has however, become impossible to obtain bronze and other corrosionresistant metals for this particular purpose, and the manufacturers of burial urns are therefore confronted with the problem of providing breakage-resistant crematory urns which can be readily manufactured and sold at moderate cost.

While scrap ferrous sheet-metal is available to tected with a non-corrosive coating which will permit embedment thereof in diverse kinds of soil without danger of deterioration.

Other specific objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following description.

A clear conception of ne embodiment of my invention and of the mode of constructing burial urns in accordance therewith, may be had by referring to the drawing accompanying and forming a part of this specification wherein like reference characters designate the same or similar parts in the several views.

Fig. 1 is a part sectional side elevation through one of the improved burial urns, the section being taken centrally therethrough; and

Fig. 2 is a bottom view of the burial urn shown in Fig. 1.

The improved burial urn shown in the drawing comprises in general an inverted cup-shaped upper section or" portion 3- having its lower openingprovidedwith a bottom or base 4 the periphery of which is tightly and firmly secured to the oup=shaped section- 3 by a crimped joint 5; and the central" portion of'whiclr has an integral internally threaded thimble 6 forming a central opening for the introduction of material into the urn casing. The threaded thimble 6 and. the opening formed thereby, are adapted to be closed and thoroughly sealed by means of a screw plug 1 which may be formed of any suitable corrosion-resistant material such as bronze. Both of th sections 3, 4 of the body of the urn may be formed of relatively thin ferrous sheet-metal, the cup-shaped section 3 being formed of a single piece of metal; and all of the exposed surfaces of these body sections 3, 4 are coated with a relatively heavy coating 8 of corrosion-resistant porcelain which is baked upon the surfaces and provides an attractive finish. If a ferrous plug 7 is used instead of a bronze plug, the surface of this plug should also be similarly coated with corrosion-resistant porcelain, and this porcelain coating 8 should be applied after the bottom 4 has been secured within the cup-shaped top portion 3, so as to additionally seal the joint between these parts. The porcelain coated body may be of any desirable and attractive shape, and is preferably formed circular as shown in the drawing.

When the improved urn has been constructed in this improved manner and has been coated With a heavy layer of corrosion-resistant porcelain, it may be sealed with the aid of a plug 1 and buried in various types of soil without danger of corrosion or other deterioration. The contents thus confined within the improved urn are thoroughly concealed and protected against entry of moisture, and the sealed urn is moreover exceedingly strong in spite of the fact that the ferrous sheet-metal used in the formation of the body is relatively light. The improved burial urns have proven highly satisfactory and successful in actual use, and may be manufactured and sold at extremely moderate cost as compared to the prior bronze and stone urns. The urns may also be manufactured in various sizes and of various attractive shapes, and the porcelain finish may be of any desired color and enhances the aesthetic appearance of the structures.

It should be understood that it is not desired to limit this invention to the exact details of construction herein shown and described, for

various modifications may occur to persons skilled in the art.

I claim:

1. A burial urn comprising, a sheet-metal inverted cup-shaped seamless and imperforate body having an inturned integral lower brim and being of enlarged internal diameter adjoining said brim, a sheet-metal concave base snugly confined within said enlarged lower body portion by said inturned brim and having a cen-, tral openingfbounded by an integral tubular flange projecting into said body, all exposed external and internal surfaces of said body andbase being heavily coated with corrosion-resist 151" of said ant material, and a closure plug coacting with said flange and with the lower exterior base to seal said opening.

2. A burial urn comprising, a sheet-iron 111-" verted cup-shaped seamless and imperforate body having an inwardly and upwardly directed'lower brim and being of enlarged internal'diameter adjoining said brim, a sheet-iron concavebase having a peripheral downwardly directed integral tubular flange snugly confined within said enlarged lower body portion by said inwardly and upwardly directed lower brim portion and ing a peripheral integral outer tubular flange snugly confined within said enlarged lower body portion by said inwardly and upwardly directed lower brim portion and also being provided with a central opening bounded by an integral inner tubular flange, all exposed external and internal surfaces of said body and base being heavily coated with corrosion-resistant porcelain, and a closure plug coacting with said inner flange and with a lower outer face of said base to seal said opening,
