SANITRY DRINKING VESSEL.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented July 25, 1911.
Application 1ed'Ju1y 22, 1910. Serial-No. 573,260.
sion of a drinking cup having a means for detachably securing a mouth. shield thereto when the cup is in use.
Another Objectis the provision of an improved form of drinking shield.
I/Vith these and other objects in view, which will more fully hereinafter appear', the present invention consists i'n certain novel details of construction and arrangement of parts, hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and more particularly pointed out in the appended claim; it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details of the device may be made, within the scope of the appended claim, without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings, forming part of the specification ,-Figure l is a vertical sectional view of a drinking cup provided with my improved device. Fig. 2 is asimilar view taken on a plane at right angles to the plane ofthe section in Fig. l.
Fig. 3 is asimilar view taken on the same,
plane and showing a modified form of clip. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective of the mouth shield. Fig. 5 is a perspective view partly in section of a modified form of cup also showing a modified form of shield applied thereto. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the cup illustrated in Fig. 5 showing portion of the side wall thereof broken" away and disclosing the perforated bottom. Fig. 7 is a detail perspective of afurther modified form of shield. Fig. 8 is a perspective view of a still `further modified form of shield.
Similar numerals of reference are employed to designate corresponding parts throughout.
For purposes of illustration, I have shown an ordinary drinking cup formed of metal. It must be understood, however, that I am not to be limited to applying my attachment to this specific form of cup, since it will be readily understood from what will appear later how the attachment might be equally as well employed with glasses and other vessels'used for drinking.
The bottom of the cup is designated by the numeral 5 and the side wall rising from the periphery of the bottom by the numeral 6. What will subsequently be termed a clip is illustrated in Figs. l and-2 and is shown to be formed of a single piece of wire bent to the shape of an ordinary hairpin and the opposite sides of which are designated by the numerals 7 and 8. This member is arranged perpendicular to the bottom 5 and has the free ,under ortions of its opposite limbsfixedly secured, such asby solderingto the inner face of the side wall 6, the terminals of said limbs bearing on the bottom 5. The upper end portion of the clip is flexed inwardly or toward the center of the bottom so that a space will be provided for the insertion of the mouth shield to be presently described, the medial portions of the sides 7 and 8 bearing on the inner face of the side wall 6. The mouth shield is preferably formed of a single strip of glazed paper designated by the numeral 9, the said mouth piece corresponding in widthv approximately to the width of the ordinary mouth. The mouth piece in length approximates to the height of the side wall 6, and either end portion thereof is insertible between the clip and side wall 6, while the opposite end portion is bendable over the edge of the cup so that when the user places the cup between his lips the surface of the mouth shield will bear on the lips of the user, whereby infection which might take place by placing the edge Vof the cup between the lips will be prevented.v
In Fig. 7 a modified form of shield is shown which is preferably formed of a single piece of paper or other suitable material of less length than the shield shown in Fig. el. The body portion of this shield is designated by the numeral 12 and the sides adjacent to one 'end thereof converge as shown at 13. The shield is 4somewhat greater in length than the height `of the wall 6 of the cup so that when secured by means of the clip in the manner before described, the end portion of the shield projecting beyond the edge of the cup is bent over the said edge similar to the shield 9. In Fig. 8 aJstlll further modified form of shield' is shown the body portion of which is designated by the numeral 14. Either end portion of this body is rounded as shown at and bendable over the edge of the cup in the manner before described.
In the modified form illustrated in Fig. 3 a clip 11 is shown to be formed of a single piece of a relatively narrow piece of thin sheet metal, arranged perpendicular to the bottom 5 and having its lower end secured to the inner face of the side Wall 6, and its upper end portion bent inwardly or toward the center of the bottom so as to provide a space for the admission of either end portion of the mouth shield 9.
In Figs. 5 and 6 I have shown a modified form of cup or drinking vessel the bottom of which is designated by the numeral 16 and the circular side wall rising from the periphery of the bottom by the numeral 17. Reference now to Figs. 5 and 6 discloses the fact that the bottom 1'6 is provided with a plurality of spaced openings 18, the provision of these openings preventing the user from lling the cup with liquid without the employment ofthe attachment about to be described. In the form illustratedin Fig. 5 the cup is shown as provided with a cylindrical shield 'designated in general by the numeral 19. This shield is preferably formed of paper and includes a bottom from the periphery of which rises a circular side wall 21. The circular side wall 21 is somewhat greater in length than the length of the sidewall 19 of the cup so that when the beam 20 bears on the bottom 18 the upper end portion of the side wall 21 will extend beyond the upper edge of the side wall 17. Inorder that the projecting end portion of the side Wall 21 may be readily bent over the edge of the side Wall 17, said projecting end portion is'provided with a plurality of spaced longitudinal incisions 22. With this construction it will be seen when the shield 19 is placed in the cup just described sutlicient water may be taken into the shield to supply the user, after which the shield is removed and thrown away.
From the foregoing, it is evident that I have provided a device which is comparatively simple in structure and inexpensive in manufacture, embodying few parts and these so arranged that the danger of de` rangement will be reduced to a minimum.
