H. GOODAGRE, FLOWER POT. Nof 473,836. Patented Apr. 26, 1892.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

HENRY GOODAORE, OF LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY.

FLOWER-POT.1

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 473,836, dated April 26, 1892. Application filed October 11, 1890. Serial No. 367,784. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom t may concern.-

Beit known that I, HENRY GooDAcEE, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Lexington, in the county of Fayette and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and useful Flower-Pot, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to knockdown packing and storing vessels; and the object of the same is to produce a vessel of this character made in several pieces which are adapted to be detachably connected, all as hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and as illustrated in the drawings, in Which- Figure l is a perspective view of one form of my improved vessel, showing the same in use as a flower-pot. Figs. 2, 3, and Il are crosssections of different forms of vessels. Fig. 5 is a perspective detail of one form of bottom. Fig. 6 is a plan View of the ring at the top. Fig. 7 is a bottom plan view with the bottom removed.

Referring to the said drawings, the letters S designate sections of my improved vessel, which latter may be of any desired size and shape within certain limits and may be divided into several sections, although I have shown it in the present case as divided into but two. Around the upper end of the vessel comprising the several sections is formed a neck N ,serving as ashoulder for the reception of a removable ring R, the latter preferably having an opening in one side, as shown at O in Fig. 6. Whenthe several sections are brought together, the ring is slipped down over the neck, as will be understood. The lower corners of one or both of the sections are cut away, as at C in Fig. 2,in order to permittheir movement to the dotted-line position. The outer sides of the members are provided with curved projections P through part of the distance around them, as shown in Fig. 7.

In assembling the parts of this improved vessel a bottom Bis brought into place. This bottom has an upwardly-rising flange F around its edge turned inwardly, as at I, so as to fit above the projections P, and into this bottom the lower ends of the sections areinserted, as shown in dotted linesin Fig. 2. The sections are then forced together, whereby their flat meeting faces are brought intocontact and their projections P are forced outwardly beneath the inwardly-extending edge I of the flange F, thereby locking the bottom to the body of the vessel. The ring R is then slipped over the neck N, whereby the sections are prevented from again spreading, as will be understood.

This improved vessel may be used for any purpose desired, but is especially useful as a ilower-pot. As such, it maybe removed from the lump of earth and roots which it incloses by lirst raising the ring R and moving it laterally, so as to bring its opening O by the stem of the plant, and then separating the sections and disengaging them from the bottom. The parts of the vessel may be of any desired material which shall possess sufticient strength and durability.

What is claimed as new is- The herein-described vessel, the same comprising a body divided vertically into sections S, each section having its lower inner corners out away, as at C, and having a projection P at its lower end on its outer face, means, substantially as described, for detachably connecting the upper ends of the sections, the bottom B, and the upwardly-extending flange F thereon having an inwardly-projecting edge I, detachably engaging said projections, as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.

HENRY GOODACRE.
