11 Claims.

This invention relates to receptacles. It is particularly directed to a receptacle provided with an inner container for cooling medium to cool liquid in the receptacle without adulterating the liquid.

The invention may be embodied in a pitcher, cocktail shaker or the like receptacle. An object of this invention is to provide a receptacle of the character described provided with a cover formed with a central opening through which may be slidably passed a tube provided With a shoulder resting on the cover. The tube may contain ice cubes or other cooling medium, and projects down into the pitcher or into the receptacle to cool liquid therein without adulterating or diluting the liquid in the receptacle.

Another object of this invention is to provide a receptacle of the character described, which may be used with or without the tube.

Yet a further object of this invention is to provide in a receptacle of the character described, a cap which is attached to a flange on the cover and serves to seal or close the upper open end of the tube.

Yet another object of this invention is to pro vide in a receptacle of the character described, a

cover having a central upstanding flange and a metal sleeve fixed within the flange and projecting below the underside of the cover to Serve as a bearing for the tube, as it slides down through the cover and also to serve to prevent tilting of the tube, so that the tube cannot contact the walls of the receptacle.

Still another object of this invention is to provide in a device of the character described, a tube which is sealed completely and is pre-fllled with freezable material. With such construction, the tube may be taken out of the pitcher and placed in a refrigerator when the pitcher is not in use. When it is desired to use the pitcher, the tube may be taken out of the refrigerator and mounted on the cover of the pitcher, thus making it unecessary to put ice cubes or other refrigerant into the tube each time the pitcher is used.

Yet a further object of this invention is to provide a receptacle of the character described provided with a pouring lip on the cover instead of on the pitcher itself. Th cover, furthermore, in accordance with the invention, is provided with an upstanding flange, the tube is formed with an annular bead which rests on the upper end of the flange, and the cap has a top wall contacting the upper edge of the tube to close the same, and said cap being further provided with an annular downwardly extending flange, the lower edge of which contacts th cover, thereby or or to seal the tube, and said flange being formed with one or more outwardly beads contacting the inner surface of the flange of the cap to frictionally hold the cap on the cover.

In accordance with the present invention, the cover has an integral downwardly extending flange fitted on the pitcher and said cover being formed with a slot adjacent a pouring spout or lip on the cover to make the cover leakproof, ex-

:- cept for the pouring spout.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide a receptacle for the character described comprising a glass container and a metal ring fitted over the top edge of the cover, said ring having a top Wall contacting a top edge of the container, an inner flange projecting downwardly into the container and an outer flange projecting downwardly at the outside of the container with a gasket interposed between the outer flange and the outer surface of the container. The in ner flange may be somewhat smaller than the diameter of the upper inner surface at the upper end of the container to allow for variations in the internal diameter of the pitcher caused by un-uniform shrinking in cooling of the glass. The gasket cannot be contacted by the liquid within the receptacle and may be made of rubber or synthetic plastic material and is preferably insoluble, waterproof, non-absorbent and not affected by alcohol. The bottom edge of the outer flange of the ring is turned or spun toward the outer surface of the glass pitcher either after the ring is on the pitcher, or before.

The under side of the top wall of the ring contacts the top edge of the pitcher or receptacle so as to seal liquid and prevent liquid from passing around the upper edge of the receptacle. In accordance with the invention, the cover may be provided with an opening to admit air and in sure a free flow of liquid. In accordance with the invention, furthermore, the upper end of the pitcher tapers slightly upwardly and outwardly so that the inner flange of the ring will contact the inner surface of the pitcher. The flange on the cover is tapered downwardly and outwardly and conforms to a taper of the outer flange of the ring which is fixed to the pitcher. Said taper takes care of variations in the outer diameter of the pitcher. The bight or contact of the cover flange with the outer flange of the ring may be either up or down depending upon the natural contact of said flanges.

Another object of the invention is to provide a neat, compact and durable receptacle of the character described, which shall be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and which shall yet be attractive in appearance, easy to use and practical and efficient to a high degree.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements,

and arrangementzof parts which will-be exemplified in "the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims.

In the accompanying drawing .in which is shown various possible illustrative embodiments of the invention.

?-Referring:now in. detail to'sthetdrawing, l0 designates :a receptacle .;embodying :the invention. The same "comprises La vessel 1 I, which maybe made ofzglass or any other suit-able material. Thea-vessel H is'shown hereinin the form :of a

pitcher and comprises a bottom wall :12, an upwardly and inwardly tapered wall 13 .extendingrfrom. the bottom vvall and upwardly and outwardly tapering .upper end portion I Landa'han- ,dle t5. At the upperrendof .wall'port-ion I4 is -a=-horizontal flat" surface l d-which. may be. ground :flat, .ifsdesired.

At the lowerend of-the flange-24 isn-aninwardly turned rim edge 25, which may rcontactthe outer surface of vessel wall I4.

Between "flange '24- and the outer surface of =vessel wall 44 is v a gasket :26 which "may be made #01" :rubber or synthetic plastic material, prefer- ..ably somewhat compressible and resilient and .also preferably waterproof, non-absorbent .and 'irnpervioustolalcohol and also insoluble-in :water rand-alcohol.

The inturned flange 25 serves to retain the ,=ringion-the vessel so-that the ring-is permanently .fixed :to the vessel.

@Removably mounted onthe "ring -is -a 1 cover 30. The :cover .30 7 comprises -.a' wall 3|, .which rests on" the ,upper surface of wall -2 l of ring 29. zExtending from the "outer end of wall ,3! is :a :fiange 32.whicnlikewise-preferably tapers slightly rdownwardly and outwardly and contacts .the outer surfaceof vflangeld. Extending-from wall .3! .is an upwardlycurved dome shaped .wall '34 .formedwith.atcentral vupstanding.flange 35. The -flange .35.;is formed .with one .or more ..eguiangu- (.-larly-.- spaced 2 outwardly extending pimples or projections 36, see Fig. 6. Fitted within the flange 35 is an annular central ring 31. The upper edge 38 of the flange 35 is rolled over the top edge of the ring 31. The ring 31 projects downwardly below the under surface of wall 34. The ring 37 is preferably soldered, welded or otherwise fixed to the flange 35.

The :cover wall 36 is formed with an arcuate slot'dfi, adjacent wall 3!. Soldered orptherWise .secured to the cover is a pouring hp 4!, the center 10 of which is at the arcuate slot M3. The pouring spout-'94l"has an.:inner edge 42, which is soldered toizthe top surface of wall 3| of the cover. The

pouring lip or spout ll tapers upwardly and out- :war'dly 'andis-curved and may extend around somewhatless than half of the cover. At the side :ofz-the .cover,- o-pposite to the pouring lip M is a hole 13 to admit air to insure free flow of liquid through the slot 40. It will be noted that when the pitcher is tilted forwardly, the liquid will pass through the slot M! ."ontoxpouring lip 4 l.

Received within'thelring 3lxis a tubeor'contamer: 50, adapted to contain axcooling medium, such as ice'cubes ornice. :The .tubebfl is closed at its bottom end 5| and may be open at its upper end. It is formed adjacent its upper end with an outwardly extending annular bead 53, which rests onthe inwardly turned v-upper edge -38 of flange'35. .The tubdEU-projects downwardly into the "pitcher 1 or vessel I l' at its. lower end, is spaced above the lower end wall 'IZ .of the vessel.

Means is provided to-seal theupper end of the tube. "To this endytheredsffitted ontoithe flange 35 a cap 59. The capTBOcom-prises a top wall 6! contacting'ithe upper end-"edge of tub-e 50. Extending downwardly from the v.top wall 6| isan annular flange.:62rhavinga lowerbeaded end edge 63 contacting theupper surflace'of cover wall 3d. The pimples or :projections'. 36 of the flange -35 'frictionally contact :the inner surface of flange 62. Thecontactiof .thettop wall BI with the upper edge of'the tube7=50 seals thentube. Said seal is also assured bycontactiof the lower edge'of theflange' of the cap wi-th the top surface 'ofthe cover. Thus, the cap-is attached to the cover, but seals the'open end of the tube 50. .The ring 31 insures up and down :sliding rmovement 'of the tubeand serves to-prevent 't'iltingpf'the tube and furthermore reinforces flange 35'of the cap. "The cap preventsthetu-be from falling out and also seals the tube. Obviously; the pitcher may be used without the tube if "desired. Although the invention :is herein illustratedin the formof a'pitcheiyit is understood that the invention may also be incorporated in a cocktail shaker or any other receptacle.

In'Fig. 5; there is shown a tube "50a,.i1lustrating a modified'form of tube employed in the receptacle embodying the invention. The tube is closed at its lower end,-: as'at ill, and at'its upper endby a disc II. It is also formed with an outwardly extending annu lar'bead 12,:similar to the bead 53 0f tube 5! When the sealed tube 58a is used, it-may be filled with water, salt water, distilled water or any other refrigerant. The tube may be placed'in=a'refrigerator, when the pitcher isnot in use so that the material therein will cool or freeze. "Then it may be used without necessity of inserting ice cubes therein.

The gasket'26 between the outer flange of the ring and the outer wall of the pitcher is not in contact with liquid within the pitcher. Nevertheless, it is preferably made of rubber or synthetic plastic which is insoluble in water or alcohol and is waterproof, non-absorbent. The bottom edge of the outer flange of the ring ma be rolled over before or after the ring is on the vessel.

It will be noted that the upper edge of the pitcher slightly tapers outward-1y so that the inner flange of the ring may contact the glass. The upper edge of the flange of the cover is rolled over the top edge of the collar or ring. Said collar or ring is held within the flange by solder and keeps plating solutions from getting in. If such solution would get in between the collar or flange, it might cause discolorations whenever plating is attempted. The taper on the flange of the cover conforms the taper on the outer surface of the ring. Said taper takes care of variation in the outer diameter of the pitcher. The bight or contact of the cover flange with the outer flange of the ring may be either up or down depending upon natural contact of the tube.

It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth or shown in the accompanyin drawing it is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
