PLASTIC BOTTLE POURER Filed Sept. 18, 1963 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 IN VEN TOR.

By John J. fla/y ATTURNEYS.

United States Patent Ofi 3,190,511 Patented June 22, 1965 3,190,511 PLASTIC BOTTLE POURER .1 ohm J. Daly, 43% W. 116th St., New York, NY. Filed Sept. 18, 1963, Ser. No. 309,650 1 Claim. (Cl. 222-478) This invention relates to liquid pourers and more particularly to a sectional pourer formed of plastic material and this invention is an improvement over the liquid pourer disclosed in my Letters Patent Number 3,045,- 879.

A principal object of the present invention is to provide a liquid pourer particularly adapted for liquor bottles so that a desired amount of liquor is dispensed in a uniform stream upon tilting of the bottle containing the pourer.

Another object of the invention is to provide a pourer of this type that has no parts liable to wear out or liable to get out of order.

A further object is to provide a sectional pourer for liquor bottles, said pourer having flat surfaces adapted to receive advertising indicia thereon.

A specific object of the invention is a provide a pourer of this type with a body havinga cylindrical socketed end portion adapted to be threaded onto the threaded neck of a liquor bottle.

Still another object according to a modification of the invention is to provide a pourer of this type with a body having a fiat tapering body formed at one end with a projecting tapered and roughened stopper for closing the neck of a liquor bottle.

It is also an object of the invention to provide a pourer for liquor bottles that is simple and practical in construction, neat and attractive in appearance, strong and reliable in use, relatively inexpensive in manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a pourer for a liquor bottle embodying one form of the invention.

FIG. 2 is a top plan view thereof.

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan View thereof.

FIG. 4 is a vertical sectional view through the center thereof with the pourer shown in position on the neck of a liquor bottle.

FIG. 5 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of FIG. 4 looking in the direction of the arrows.

FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of FIG. 4, looking in the direction of the arrows.

FIG. 7 is a view similar to FIG. 1 of a modified form of pourer.

FIG. 8 is a top plan view thereof.

PI 1. 9 is a bottom plan view thereof.

FIG. 10 is a vertical sectional view through the center thereof.

FIG. 11 is a vertical section view taken on the line 11-11 of FIG. 10.

FIG. 12 is a fragmentary sectional view showing the groove and plug connection between the body sections.

Referring more in detail to the drawings, in FIG. 1 a pourer for a liquor bottle is illustrated and designated generally by the reference numeral 10. The pourer 10 is composed of flexible plastic material such as polythylene and may be colored if desired. The body of the pourer is hollow and sectional, being composed of two cooperative halves indicated at 12 and 14, both of similar construction and secured together by adhesive 16. The sectional body is substantially rectangular in configuration and in cross section, with flat side walls 18, 18, flat front wall 20, flat rear wall 22 and upwardly and laterally tapering top wall 24. The walls merge at the top to define an upwardly and laterally tubular extension constituting a spout 26. The side walls 18, 18 are each formed with a circular flat smooth enlarged surface area 28 and with a semicircular bulged out portion 30 therebelow as viewed in FIG. 1. The bulged out portions are formed with fiat roof portions forming flat shoulders 32.

Inside the hollow body and spaced inwardly of the front wall 20, there is another inner front wall 34 spaced from the outer front wall 20 and merging with the top of the front wall and connected at the bottom with the front wall by a forwardly extending bridge portion constituting a shoulder 36. The side walls 18, front wall 20, inner front wall 34 and shoulder 36 define a space 37.

Inwardly of the rear wall 22, there is another narrow inner wall 33 spaced inwardly of the rear wall. The top of the inner rear wall 33 merges with the top of the top wall 24 at its juncture with the spout 26. The bottom end of the inner rear wall is connected to the rear wall 22 by a bridge portion constituting a shoulder 40. The side walls 18, rear wall 22, top wall 24, inner rear wall 38 and shoulder 40 define a space 42.

The side walls 18, inner front wall 34 and inner rear wall 38 define a passage 44 communicating with the tubular spout 26. The inner surfaces of the front wall 29 and the rear wall 22 are curved and merge with the curved inner surfaces of the bulged out portions 30. The merging curved inner surfaces are threaded as indicated at 46. The bulged out portions 30, curved inner portions of the front and rear walls and the shoulders 32, 36 and 40 define a socketed recess 48 at the bottom end of the body as viewed in FIG. 1.

An air vent 50 is formed in the rear Wall 22 at the top thereof communicating with the space 42 and a similar air vent 52 is formed in the bottom of the inner rear Wall 38, communicating with the passage 44 and the socket recess 48.

In use, the circular smooth fiat area 28 on the side walls is adapted to receive indicia 54. The pourer 10 is mounted on top of the neck 56 of a bottle 58 as shown in FIG. 4 with the threaded socketed recess 48 threaded onto the threads on the neck. When the bottle is tilted to a horizontal position, the liquor will pass from the bottle through the neck 56 of the bottle, through the passage 44 and out through the opening in the spout 26.

In FIGS. 7 to 12, inclusive, a pourer 10' is shown embodying a modified form of the invention. The pourer 10 differs from pourer 10 in that the side walls 18', 18' are curved instead of being flat and taper downwardly and outwardly as shown in FIGSJ and 11. The front and rear walls 20' and 22" are also curved instead of being flat, the bottom ends of the walls merging to form a circular skirt portion 30. In place of a threaded socketed recess 48 to receive the neck of a bottle, the pourer 10' is provided with a tubular stopper member 58 extending outwardly of the skirt portion 30'. The stopper member is frictionally secured in position by means of an annular flange 60 frictionally seated against the inner surface of the skirt portion 30'. The stopper member tapers downwardly and inwardly as viewed in FIG. 11 with its outer surface roughened as indicated at 62. The inner front wall 34' and the inner rear wall 38' seat on the top surface of the annular flange 60.

The sections 12' and 14' of the body of the pourer 10' instead of being fastened together with adhesive are secured by a groove and flange connection as shown in 3 FIG. 12, the groove 64 being formed in section 12 and the flange 66 on section 14.

In all other respects, the pourer 10' is similar to pourer 10 and similar reference numerals are used to indicate similar parts.

In use, with the pourer 10' in the neck of the bottle of liquor or the like, as the bottle is tilted to a horizontal position, the liquor passes from the bottle through the passage in the stopper member 58, through the passage 44 and through the opening in the spout 26.

While the pourer has been principally designed for the pouring of liquor, it is apparent that the pourer can be used for other products, such as olive oil, syrups, flavors and like liquids. It is also within the realm of the invention to permit the pouring of fine granular substances, such as sugar, salt and other products of like fungile nature.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein dis closed and that various changes and modifications may be made within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent A pourer comprising a substantially rectangular-shaped hollow sectional body, said body having juxtaposed side walls closely spaced from each other, outer front and rear walls remotely spaced from each other, a top wall integral with the side walls and front and rear walls, said walls merging to define an integral spout at one end of the body and an integral circular socketed recess portion at the other end, an inner front wall, an inner rear wall spaced from the inner front wall, said side walls and inner front wall and inner rear wall defining a passage communicating with said recess and with the spout, a groove and flange connection between the sections of the body, said side, outer rear and inner rear walls defining a space therebetween, said outer rear wall having an air vent near the top thereof communicating with the atmosphere and with said space, said inner rear wall having an air vent near the bottom end thereof communicating with said space and with said passage, said circular socketed recess portion having internal screw threads for mounting on the threaded neck of a bottle, said side walls having circular fiat smooth areas for receiving indicia thereon.
