v SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 571,188, dated November 10, 1896.
Application filed March 20, 1896. Serial No. 584,094. (No model.)
$0 on whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRED D. CLARK, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at McDonald, in the county-of Washington and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ice- Cream Molds and Dippers, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in ice-cream molds and clippers, and has for its object to construct a mold and dipper that will be self-cleaning, that is, when emptying the contents will be removed from the sides-of the mold without the aid of a knife or scrapers arranged within the dipper and fitting against the sides thereof, as in the ordinary construction.
A further object of the invention is to provide a mold and dipper, as above described, that will be extremely simple in its construction,strong, durable, effectual in its operation, and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture; furthermore, a mold that will only re quire the one hand to operate, which is not the case with the ordinary construction.
Still further objects of the invention reside in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more specifically described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In describing the invention in detail reference is had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specificatiomand wherein like letters of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views, in which Figure 1 is a front view of my improved icecream mold and dipper, showing the same in the closed position. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the same in the open position. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional View of the mold and dipper.
In the drawings, A represents the mold, which is preferably cone shaped in form and is composed of two sections hinged together. In practice I have found it preferable to hinge these two sections together by stamping the tin or other suitable material composing the same so as to form strap-hinges,through which is inserted a wire B extending th e entire length of the mold, and then bent to extend through the middle of the same about two-thirds of its length, and is provided with apointed end, so as to offer no resistance to the cream or other substance on which it is desired to use the dipper or mold.
On the outer surface of the free ends of the sections forming the mold are secured clamps or sockets O 0, adapted to receive the ends of the handle D. This handle is composed of one piece of wire, which is formed in an oblong shape to constitute the body portion of the same. The free ends of the wire then extend in alinement with the oblong-shaped body portion for a short distance, when they converge toward and cross each other and engage in the clamps or sockets O C, secured on the sections of the mold.
The operation of my improved mold and dipper will be readily apparent from the views of the same which I have shown in the drawings, but to enable those unskilled in the art to thoroughly understand the manner of using the same'I will give a-further explanation.
In Fig. 1 of the drawings I have shown the mold in the form in which it is used for dipping the cream. When the mold is forced into thecream, the cream entering the mold will be pressed in the shape of a cone, and when extracted from the vessel containing the cream is held over the saucer or plate adapted to receive the same, when the two sides of the handle are forced together, which operation will, by reason of the ends of the handle on each side engaging in the clamps of the opposite section, force the two sections apart, as shown in Fig. 2, and allow the cream to fall into the plate or saucer provided to receive the same. When the two sections are forced apart,the rod B,extending through the middle of the mold, will assist in retaining the mass together and partly prevent it from adhering to the sides of the mold. It will be found, however, that when the sections are forced apart the destroying of the cone around the cream will in most cases be sufficient to prevent the adhering of the cream to the sides of the same. By this construction of a mold many advantages are obtained over the mold requiring both hands to operate, as in this construction one hand is left free to handle the saucers or plates, which is not the case with the ordinary construction.
It will be observed that when the pressure on the handle is released the spring formed by the construction of the handle shown will be sufficient to retract the two sections and form the cone, when the dipper will again be ready for use. i
It will be observed also that various changes may be made in the details of construction Without departing from the general spirit of my invention.
Having fully described my invention, What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In an ice-cream mold and dipper, the combination with the hinged cone-shaped mold, clamps or sockets secured near the free ends of the two sections, a handle composed of one piece of wire formed in an oblong shape for the body portion with the free ends crossed and engaging in the clamps or sockets, of a combination of a suitable shaped mold composed of any suitable material, and formed in sections hinged together, a coiled handle having its free ends crossed and secured to the sections, thus forming a spring to return the mold to its original shape after opening, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
