JOHN ROBINSON, OF COAL VALLEY, TEST VIRGINIA.

DlNNER-PAIL.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 356,852, dated February 1, 1887.

Aplication led September 29, 1856. Serial No. 214,853. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, Joan RoBINsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Coal Valley, in the county of Fayette and State of West Virginia, have invented anew and useful Improvement in Dinner-Fails, of which the following is a specification.

My invention is an improvement in dinnerpails for workmen; and it consists in the peculiar construction and combination of devices that will be more fully set forth hereinafter, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a dinner-pail embodying my improvements, showing the parts in closed position. Fig. 2 is a similar view, the upper sections being thrown open. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of the same. Fig. 4 is partly a top plan view and partly a horizontal sectionv on the line .e w of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a sectional view of a modification. Fig. 6 is an enlarged sectional view to show the liange on the bottom of the sections.

A represents the lower section of the dinner-pail, which is cylindrical in shape, and is provided on its upper side with a removable cover, B. Near the lower end of the section A is a faucet, C, through which the contents of the section may be drawn.

D represents a heatingtnbe, which extends vertically through the lower section, A, and has its lower end extending outwardly from one side of the said section, near the bottom thereof, and the upper portion of the tube projects above the lower section, A, for a considerable distance. Above the lower section are located two semi-cylindrical sections, E and l?, which are united together at one side by apivotal rod, G. The lower portion of the said rod is rigidly secured to one side of the lower section, A, so that the sections E and F are free to be swung toward or from each other over the lower section, A, but will not become accidentally detached therefrom. The

said sections E and F are provided on their inner sides with semicircular recesses H, which are adapted to receive the upper portion of the heating-pipe D when the said sections are closed together against the said pipe and over the lower section, A. Each semi-cylindrical section is divided into compartments, in a manner to he hereinafter described, and on the upper side of the section E is secured a box, l, adapted to hold matches or similar articles.

vDirectly opposite the pivotal rod G is a vertical rod, K, which extends from the upper side of the lower section, A, and in the upper ends of the said rod K and the pivotal rod G are made eyes, which are adapted to receive the lower ends of the bentwire bail L, having the wooden handle lli. The free sides of' the hinged sections E and ll are provided with a clasp, N, by means of which they may be secured together when they are closed over the top of the lower section.

The tea or coifee is placed in the lower section, A, and the food is placed in the compartments of the hinged sections E and F. In order to warm the tea or coffee and the food it is only necessary to light a small lamp, O, of the construction here shown, and provided with a spout, l?, and insert the spout of the lamp in the lower end of the tube D. This causes the heat and products of combustion to pass upwardly through the tube, and as the latter passes through the lower section, A, and between the hinged sections, it will be readily understood that the articles contained in the compartments of the pail will be4 very soon heated.

Each semi-cylindrical section E and F is divided into a series of horizontal compartments, e f, by means of horizontal shelves or partitions e'f. The inner sides of the said sections are formed by hinged doors caf, having the semicircular recesses H, previously described. By throwing these sides or doors open after the sections are swung outwardly access may he readily obtained to the compartments in the said sections.

Each of the sections E F is provided on the lower side with a semicircular llange,o2, which conforms to the outline of the sections and is set some distance in from the outer edge thereof. The hinges of the sections have limited vertical play on the rod G. When the sections E F are closed, the flange a2 fits inside the part A, while the lower edge of the sections rests on the top of the part A. Vlhen it is desired to obtain access to the compartments of the sections, the latter are moved vertically on the IOC rod G until the flange o2 clears the top of part A, and then the sections may be swung outwardly. These flanges a2 thus prevent the sections from swinging outwardly until said sections are raised to canse the iianges to clear the part or section A.

In lieu of having the pipe D arrangedv as shown in Fig. 3, I may extend it vertically through the sections, and provide a lamp at the lower end of the pipe below section A, as shown in Fig. 5.

Having thus described my invention, I claim 1. In a dinner-pail, the combination of the lower section, A, and the sections E and F, hinged together above the section A and adapted to close over the saine, and the heating-tube D, extending through the lower section, A, and between the hinged sections E and F, substantially as described.

2. The combination, in a dinner-pail, of the lower section, A, the sections E and F, hinged together on the upper side of the section A and adapted to close over the saine, the rod G, projecting from one side ofthe lower section, A, and on which the sections E and F are hinged, the rod K, opposite the rod G, and the bail connected to the said rods, substantially as described. l

3. In a dinner-pail, the combination of the lower section, A, the hinged sections E and F, above the section A and adapted to close over the saine, the heating-tube extending4 above the section A,and the doors ezfz for the inner sides of the hinged sections, and having the recesses H to receive the heating-tube when the hinged sections are closed, substantially as described.

4. Ina dinner-pail, the combination of the lower section, A, with the hinged sections E F above the saine, and separate doors ezf on the inner sides of the hinged sections.

5. In a dinner-pail, the combination, of the
