Description

Sept. 4, A. fELLIER SAFETY DRINKING CUP Filed March 1, 1954 IN V EN TOR. A /VD/Q 7224 A9? United rates Patent Ofiiice SAFETY DRINKING CUP Andre Tellier, New York, N. Y. Application March 1, 1954, Serial No. 413,080 3 Claims. (Cl. 65-13) This invention relates to in safety drinking cups.
A principal object of the invention is to provide a drinking cup that is safe to use in moving vehicles such as trains, airplanes and the like, and at social parties.
Another object of the invention is to provide a drinking cup which is especially designed for training children how to drink.
A further object is to provide a drinking cup with means for facilitating drinking therefrom and yet prevent the spilling of the contents.
Yet another object of the invention is to provide a drinking cup with means for directing the flow of liquid to and over the lip of the cup in order to prevent spouting or spraying of the liquid.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the description thereof to follow taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in which- Fig. 1 is a vertical sectional view of a drinking cup embodying one form of my invention.
Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the cap.
Fig. 3 is a side elevational view of the cap shown in Fig. 2. i
Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view of a modified form of cap.
Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view of the cap shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a side elevational view of another modified form of cap.
new and useful improvements desired.
A cap or cover 7 is provided for the open top end and is in the form of a circular plate or disc of the same material as the body portion. An inwardly tapered flange or skirt portion 8 depends from the peripheral edge of the cap 7 and secured to the bottom end edge of the flange portion is a wall 9. Extending outwardly from the upper surface of the cap at its center there is an integral handle 10. The flange portion 8 is formed with a plurality of equidistant spaced grooves or channels 11 which are curved from the top to the bottom 12 to provide circuitous paths past the cover for the flow of liquid out of the cup.
In order to close the top of the body portion of the cup, the cap 7 is inserted thereinto until the tapered surface of the flange portion 8 frictionally engages the inner surface of the body portion of the cup, and prevents further entry. The cap when thus fitted prevents the liquid in the cup Patented Sept. 4, 1956 from spilling out, and the curved channels 11 provide circuitous paths for the flow of liquid and direct it outwardly toward the inner surface of the upper open end of the body portion thereby permitting flow of the liquid but preventing spouting or spraying. This type of cap is especially designed for training children to drink and use on airplanes, railroads and the like where it is diflicult to hold the cup steady while drinking.
The modified form of cap shown in Figs. 4 and 5 is similar to the form shown in Fig. 1 except that the bottom Wall 9 of Fig. 1 is missing, leaving the bottom of the cap 7 open so that the liquid is adapted to impinge against the bottom surface of the cap and the inner surface of the flange portion 9.
In the modified form of cap shown 7" is formed with straight grooves or stead of curved on its outer tapered surface S". wise it is the same inclusive.
I claim:
1. A safety drinking cup comprising a hollow body portion having a closed bottom and an open top end, a detachable cap closing said open top end, a tapered flange depending from the periphery of said cap, having open-ended curved channels on its outer surface extending from the top of the flange to the bottom thereof providing circuitous paths between the flange and body portion for the discharge of liquid from the cup, and a wall secured to the lower edge of said flange closing the lower end of the cap.
2. A safety drinking cup comprising a hollow tapered plastic body portion having a closed bottom and an open top end, a detachable plastic cap closingsaid open top end, an inwardly tapered flange depending from the periphery of said cap, said flange having open-ended in Fig. 6, the cap Otheras the form shown in Figs. 1 to 3,
the discharge of liquid from the cup, a plastic wall secured to the lower edge of said flange closing the lower end of the cap, said tapered flange being adapted to frictionally engage the tapered body portion and a handle on said cap at its center.
3. In a container, a closure cap therefor comprising a grooves along its outer surface extending through the a peripheral edges of References Cited in the file of this patent UNITED STATES PATENTS channels 11" ini said flange
