Description

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JOHN P. EUSTIS, OF NEWARK, NEWV JERSEY.
DRINKING-FLASK.
SPEGIFICATTON forming part of Letters Patent No. 285,597, dated September 25, 1883.
Application filed March 8, 1883. (No model.)
This invention consists in combining with a drinking-flask a cup which is fitted to the body of the flask for its attachment thereto when not in use, and the bottom of which is provided with a nipple adapted to enter the mouth of the flask, so that the cup may be used as a funnel for supplying the flask with the desired liquid. Said nipple is protected by a foot to the cup, and is also adapted to receive the stopper of the flask, so that it may be closed thereby when the cup is used for drinking purposes, such stopper being composed of a screwcap, as hereinafter more fully set forth.
This invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is avertical section, showing the cup in position on the flask as in disuse. Fig. 2 is a side view. Fig. 3is a vertical section, showing the cup when used as a funnel. Fig. 4 shows the cup in vertical section detached. Fig. 5 is a plan or top view thereof.
.Si nilar letters indicate corresponding parts.
The letter A designates the body of a flask or bottle, to which is fitted a cup, B, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2that is to say, the flask and cup have like crosssections, and the inner diameter of the cup corresponds to the outer diameter of the flask. On the bottom of the cup B is a nipple, O, which is properly shaped to enter the mouth of the flask, it being contracted at the end, and when the nipple is in sorted in such mouth, as shown in Fig. 3, any liquid poured into the cup is conducted into the flask, the cup acting as a funnel. Surrounding the nipple O on the bottom of the cup is a foot, D, which serves not only to sup port the cup on a table or the like, butalso to protect the nipple against injurious contact with a foreign object. This foot D is made in V shape of a flange and of a height greater than the length of the nipple. The neck of the flask (marked E) and the nipple 0 correspond in diameter, and are provided with screw-threads of corresponding pitch, to which threads is fitted a screw-cap, G, so that when the cup is not in use this cap may be used to stopper the flask, as shown in Fig. 1, while when the cup is in use, as for drinking the liquid from the flask, the cap may be put on the nipple, as shown in Fig. 4., leaving the flask open, and hence no extraneous device is required for closing the nipple.
It may be remarked that the flask "can be made of sheet metal, glass, or other suitable material, and the cup may be of the same or a different material.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The combination, with a flask, of the cup "B, having .its bottom provided with a nipple adapted to enter the mouth of the flask, sub stantially as and for the purpose described.
2. The combination, with a flask, of the cup B, having its bottom provided with a nipple adapted to enter the mouth of the flask, and with a foot surrounding the nipple, substantially as and for the purpose described.
3. The combination, with a flask, of the cup B, having its bottom provided with a nipple which is adapted to enter the mouth of the flask and to receive the stopper thereof, substantially as and for the purpose described.
4. The combination, with a flask having a screw-threaded neck, of the cup B, having its bottom provided with a screw-threaded nipple, and the screw-cap G, common to both the neck and the nipple, substantially as and for the purpose described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. 7
