PATENT OFFICE.

JOSHUA F. GUYN, OF ROWLANDSVILLE, MARYLAND.

FLOWER-POT.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letter s Patent No. 586,485, dated July 13, 1897.

Application filed March 31, 1897. Serial No. 630,072. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it mm, (307166722 Be it known that I, JOSHUA F. GUYN, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at Rowlandsville, in the county of Cecil and State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Flower-Pots; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention has reference to a novel construction in a flower-pot, hanging basket, or the like, and has for its object to produce an inexpensive, ornamental, and durable device of this character.

The invention consists in the features of construction hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a central vertical section of a flower-pot constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective View of the inner receptacle partially open and illustrating also the bottom as separated therefrom.

It will be understood that, although the invention is illustrated in connection with a flower-pot, yet it is applicable to hanging flower-baskets or kindred devices.

Referring now to said drawings, 1 indicates as a whole the pot, and 2 the saucer. The said pot consists, essentially, of two parts namely, the outer receptacle 3 and the inner receptacle 4. Said outer part 3 consists of the receptacle of the ordinary shape, which is made of metal, and its sides are provided with the lines of perforations 5 and 6 near the upper and lower ends of the same. The bottom 7 of this receptacle is situated a little distance above the lower edge of the same and is also provided with the perforations 8. The lower edge of the sides of this member are notched, as shown at 9, to allow the water to run from beneath the same. The upper edge portion of the member 3 is straight or extends in a vertical direction, as shown at 10-that is to say, it is arranged at an angle to the sloping sides of the pot, so that when the pot is resting upon a flat or horizontal base this upper edge portion is vertical.

The inner receptacle 4 consists, essentially,

of two pieces-namely, the upright wall 11 and the bottom or cup 12. The upright wall consists of one piece of sheet metal, suitably shaped so that when bent and its side edges of the cone. One of the side edges of this upright wall is provided with the lips 13, that serve to overlap the other edge, while the edges are held together by the hook 14 or other suitable fastening device. The cup or bottom 12 is secured to the lower end of the upright wall bya bayonet-joint-that is to say, at the lower edge of this wall 11 are the pins or projections 15, while the uprising portion of the cup or bottom is provided with angular walls 16 in the manner shown. The said wall or inner chamber is perforated on all sides in the manner shown, while the cup or bottom is provided With feet 17 that rest upon the bottom of the outer member. The inner and outer members are connected together by the perforated rim 18 at the upper end thereof, and this rim can be rigidly or removably connected with the inner receptacle as found desirable, while the outerportion of this rim fits over the straight upper end portion of the receptacle 3. In this way it is seen that a convenient and complete device is formed.

A receptacle or device of this kind for holding flowers or the like is not only inexpensive, but is a great advantage over the ordinary earthenware flower-pots, in that it is more durable and cannot be so easily fractured as the earthenware flower-pots. I

Another advantageous feature of this flower-pot is that the sides of the receptacle holding the plant are always open and are perfectly ventilated, while, the walls being made of material possessing no porosity, it is obvious that the earth will hold its moisture for a great length of time.

In transplanting with a pot of this kind it is noted that the inner-receptacle can be removed and the plant transplanted without disturbing the earth around the roots, since the bottom of said inner receptacle can be removed and the upright wall opened and sprung outwardly to allow the clump of earth around the roots of the plant to be placed in the hole or receptacle for that purpose ,without disturbing the same.

secured together it approximates the fulcrum Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. A device of the kind specified consisting of an outer perforated receptacle, and an inner perforated receptacle removably secured therein, said inner member consisting of a collapsible upright wall and a bottom.

2. A device of the kind specified consisting of an outer perforated receptacle, an inner perforated receptacle, and a rim connecting the upper ends of said receptacles.

3. A device of the kind specified consisting of an outer perforated receptacle, an inner perforated receptacle, and a removable rim connecting the upper ends of said receptacles.

4. A device of the kind specified consisting of an outer perforated receptacle, and an inner perforated receptacle removably secured therein and provided at its lower end with,
