UNITED. STATES ATENT FFIQEQ UMBRELLA DRIP-CUP.
SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent N0. 703,823, dated July 1, 1902. Application filed February 6 1902. Serial No. 92,807. (No model.)
T0 (115 whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, PHILANDER W. PRAY, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of San Francisco, State of California, have invented an Improvement in Drip-Cups for Umbrellas; and I hereby declare the following to be a full, clear,- and exact description of the same.
My invention relates to improvements in umbrella attachments intended to catch and hold the drip from the umbrella when the latter has been closed and inverted.
It consists of a flared mouth adapted to pass over the end of the rod, said receptacle having an annular series of inwardly and downwardly projecting spring members, said members curving outwardly at their ends and adapted to bear against the rod on all sides and retain the receptacle or cup in position.
The invention comprises details which will be more fully set forth hereinafter, having reference to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 shows asectional View of my improved drip-cup. Fig. 2 shows spring for holding the drip-cup to umbrella-rod.
A represents a cup of suitable size and with its main body portion preferably oval in form and its upper edge provided with a curved funnel-shaped flange 2.
The end of the cup terminates-in a projection 3, of steel or other suitable hard metal.
The bottom of the interior of the cup has a recess 4, which offers a suitable seat for the end of the umbrella-rod 5.
The cup is retained in place on the rod by means of a tubular converging series of inwardly-proj ectin g springs 6, which are adapted to press against the rod, as shown. These springs have their ends curved again outwardly toward the walls of the cup, as shown at 7, so that no prongs or edges are offered on which the ferrule of the rod may catch. Accordingly this cup may be easily slipped on or off, and byroason of the shape or length of the springs the cup is adapted for any size or style of umbrella-rod.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- A detachable drip-cup for umbrellas consisting of a metal receptacle adapted to slip on over the end of an umbrella=rod, an exterior projection of reduced diameter on the lower end of the cup, an enlarged, outwardlyfiared, funnel-like flange on the upper portion of said cup, a recess in the bottom of said cup in which theumbrella-rod is adapted to seat and an annular series of curved springs having one end secured to the interior of the cup, the middle portion adapted to bear upon the umbrella-rod and their other ends unsecured and extending below their point of attachment.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
