r.SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 705,182, dated July 22, 1902.
Application led August 23, 1901. Serial No. 73,016. (No model.)
T0 LZ whom. zit 71mg/ concer/z.:
Be it known that I, 'Fantasien Wrssn, a citizen of the United States, residing` at Milwaukee, county of Milwaukee, and State of Wisconsin, have invented new and useful Improvements in Fruit-Jars, of which the followingis a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in that class of fruit-jars in which the cover is fitted to an annular' channelsurrounding the mouth of the jar and adapted to contain a sealing material, such as Wax or paraffin, inserted in the channel when in a liquid state preparatory to applying the cover.
The object of my invention is to provide a jar of this class with a cover adapted to coperate with a spring-bow fastening universally-t1 e., my object is to provide a device in which the fastening is swung into locking position from any angle, the cover being adapted to receive the fastening from any direction, whereby the cover may be adjusted to the jar Without reference to the fastening and need never be readjusted after once entering the sealing material. Owing to the fact that the Wax-channel of the jar contains but a small quantity of sealing material, the application of the cover thereto cools the material almost instantly to such a point that if the cover be readjusted after being applied the cooled Wax is broken up and the jar is therefore imperfectly sealed. For this reason' it is important that fastenings for covers of this class should be of such character that they can be adjusted to the cover from any side and no readjustment of the cover be required. It is also of great'iinportance that the fastening should exert a pressure upon the cover exactly in the center, as otherwise slightimperfections in the jar may cause the cover to tilt and release itself from the sealing material.
The construction of my improvements are explained by reference to the accompanying drawings, in Which- Figure l represents a side view of my irnproved jar. Fig. 2 is a vertical section ofthe same, drawn at right angles to that shown in Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a detail showing the bailband and means forfasteuing the saine around Fig. et is a modified forni of the device for fastening the cover-retaining bail to the neck of the jar.
Like parts are identified by the same reference-letters throughout the several views.
A is the jar, which is provided with an annular groove or channel I3.
C is the cover, which is preferably made hemispherical in shape and is provided at its lower edee with a Vshaped fiange or collar D, which is adapted to register With and 4lit into the annular channel l5, as shown in Fig. 2, said cover being also provided with a lateral projection E, which extends slightly past the exterior Wall F of the jaw. The cover C is also provided at its apex with a recess or depression G for the reception of the downwardly-extending bend H of the cover-retaining` bail I. The lower ends of the cover-retaining bail I are provided with horizontal bends J, which in the preferred form are adapted to be engaged in the bail-retaining band K, which is preferably made of tin or other sheet metal, and secured around the neck of the jar in the annular recess or channel IJ.
It will be observed that the cover is, as above stated, heinispherical in shape or tapered uniformly toward a crown, in which is formed a central doWn\vardlyextending tapered recess or socket G, the spring boaT or bail I being provided with a central downwardly-extending bend I'I, adapted to fit into the socket G, as best shown in Fig. 2. As the boit is of resilient material, itis obvious that it may be sprung over the top of the cover and the part II engaged in the socket G, regardless of the position of the cover when adjusted to the jar.
A preferred form of device for securing the ends of the band K together is shown in Fig. 3, in Which one endof said band is provided with an aperture M, while the opposite end is provided With tongue N, which is inserted through said aperture and bent over so as to lock said ends together.
By the modified form of device for fastening the bail to the jar a recess O is formed in the Wall of the jar itself between the bailbearings lD when the jar is made.
The jar itself may be made of glass,eal.then Ware, or any suitable material. Preparatory IOO to securing the cover in place the annular groove or channel B is partially filled with beeswax, paraffin, or other similar substance R, which when said cover is secured in place forms a hermetical seal between the annular flange D and the bottom of the annular groove B, whereby the admission of air to the jar when closed is prevented. The cover is secured in place by the bail I, whichvis elastic and yields sufficiently to pass over the convex surface of the cover into the depression G, when it springs back of its own elasticity, forcing said bend II into said depression G, whereby said cover is securely retained in place.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secu re by Letters Patent, is
In a fruit-jar, the combination of a receptacle having an annular trough-shaped channel surrounding the mouth thereof, adapted to receive and retain a quantity of heated wax in a liquid or semiliquid condition; a cover provided with an annular flange registering with, and adapted to rest in, said annular channel, said cover being uniformly tapered on all sides toward a crown having a central, downwardly-extending tapered socket; a spring-bow pivoted securely at the sides of the receptacle, and having a central, downwardly-extending bend, adapted to engage resiliently in the center of the coversocket, wherebya central, downward pressure on the cover is secured, said cover being adapted to receive the bow from any direction.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
