DOUGLAS P. TURNBULL, OF KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN.

cusrmon.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be. it known that I, Donoms I. TURN- BULL, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cuspidors, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in cuspidors.

The main objects of this invention are, first, to provide an improved cuspidor consisting of a holder or container and a re movable receptacle and receptacle rim which permits the forming of the receptacle rim of water-proof paper and one in which the receptacle may be easily and quickly placed in the container or removed therefrom. Second, to provide a structure embodying these advantages in which the receptacle and receptacle rim may be furnished in the flat or knock-down blank form and easily set up or assembled and one in which the blank for the receptacle and rim are very simple and economical to produce so that the receptacle and rim may be destroyed,

thus obviating the necessity for cleaning the cuspidor in the usual manner.-

Further objects, and objects relating to structural details, will definitely appear from the detailed description to follow.

I accomplish the objects of my invention by devices and means described in the following specification.

The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in the claims.

A structure which is a preferred embodimentof my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, in which:

Figure I is a side elevation of a structure embodying the features of my invention. Fig. II is a plan view thereof. Fig. III is an enlarged vertical section on a line corresponding to line 3-3 of Fig. II. Fig. IV is a plan view with the rim 10 removed. Fig. V is a perspective View of the receptacle removed from the container. Fig. VI is a plan view of the blank from which the receptacle is formed, the scoring of the blank beingindicated by dotted lines. Fig. VII is a plan view'of the rim blank. Fig. VIII is a perspective View of a modified form of receptacle, the modification being mainly 1n the form of the scoring. Fig. IX is a plan floi tlheblank of the receptacle shown- Fig. VIIIH'Fig. Xis aperspective view of a modi- Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed August 23', 1912. Serial No. 716,675.

'2 having inwardly facing rim retaining hooks 3." These hooks project. beyond the edge of the flange so that it is entirely covered by the removable rim when the rim is in place.

The receptacle 4 comprises a bottom portion 5 and a side wall portion. The edge of the side wall portion is notched at 6. The side wall portion is scored so that it folds into flutes, there being radial scores 7 extending from the bottom of the notches and triangularly disposed scores 8 between the radial scores 7 the apices of the triangularly disposed scores being at the crowns of the notches, their bases extending between the inner ends of the radial scores and being the folding scores between the bottom and the side. When thus scored, the side wall portion folds into triangular flutings 9 having inwardly inclined edges. The side walls are of such depth that when the receptacle is arranged within the container, the inclined edges of the fiutings of'the side walls are in alinement with the flange 2.

The conical rim or flange 10 is formed of a circular blank 11 shown in Fig. VII, having a circular opening 12 and a radial slit 13. The rim is arranged upon the edges of the side walls and the container flange with its ends formed by the slit 13 overlapped and its edge engaged with the retaining. hooks. The retaining hooks hold the rim in position and it is effectively supported by the upper edges of the side walls and the blank.

By forming the receptacle 4: and its rim as I have illustrated, I am enabled to use'comparatively light material water proofed with parafi'in or other suitable water-proofmg.

In the modification shown in Figs. VIII and IX, the notches in the rim are spaced and instead of the triangularly disposed scorings, the scores 14 are parallel. .They,

side walls as shown and described. The rim may be removed by grasping one end adjacent to the slit 13 and pushing inwardly thereon when it may be lifted out. The receptacle can be lifted out by grasping the flutings which have been protected by the -rim.

The rim and receptacle may be formed very economically and may be made into very compact packages as they are entirely in the flat and occupy no more space than so much paper.

In the modification shown in X, the

edge of the rim 2 is turned inwar at intervals to form the hooks 15.. The structure shown in the preferred construction, has the advantage of supporting the rim 10 so that the flange 2 of the receptacle is entirely covered except the retaining hooks.

I have illustrated and described my improved cuspidor in detail in the form preferred by me. While I contemplate other modifications than those illustrated, I do not illustrate or describe the same herein as I believe the disclosure made will enable those skilled in the art to which this invention relates to adapt my improvements as taste or conditions may require.

Having thus described my .invention, what I claim is new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. In a cuspidor, the combination of a container having an upwardly flared rim flange provided with inwardly facing rim retaining hooks at its edge;-a receptacle having fluted side walls, the edges of the flut ings being inclined inwardly and being substantially in alinement with the flange of said container; and a conical rim arranged upon the inwardly inclined edges of the side wall and said container flange with its edge engaged with the retaining hooks.

2. In a cuspidor, the combination of a container provided with inwardly facing rim retaining hooks at its edge; a receptacle having fluted side walls, the edges of the flutings being inclined inwardly and being substantially in. alinement with the flange of said container; and a conical rim arranged upon the inwardly inclined edges of the side wall with its edge engaged with the retaining hooks.

3. In a cuspidor, the combination of a container having an n wardly flared rim flange; a receptacle having fluted side walls,

I the edges of the flutings being inclinedin-' walls, the edges of the flutings being inclined inwardly; and a conical rim arranged upon the inwardly inclined edges of the side wall flutings.

5. In a cuspidor, the combination of a container; a receptacle having side walls with inwardly projecting radial flutings; and a conical rim arranged upon the side wall flutings.

6. A receptacle formed of a blank comprising a bottom portion and a side wall portion, the edge of the side wall .portion being notched, there being radial scores extending from the bottoms of the notches and scores extending from the inner ends of the radial scores to the crowns of the notches so that when erected, the side wall portion folds into flutings with inwardly inclined edges; and a conical rim formed of a blank having a central circular opening and a slit adapted to be arranged upon the inwardly inclined edges of the side wall with its ends formed by the slit overlapped.

7. A receptacle formed of a blank comprising a bottom portion and a side wall ortion, the edge of the side wall portion ing notched, there being radial scores extending from the bottoms of the notches and scores extending from the inner ends of the radial scores to the crowns of the notches so that when erected, the side wall portion folds into flutings with inwardly inclined edges; and a conical rim adapted to be arranged-upon the inwardly inclined edges of the side wall.

8. A receptacle formed of a blank comprising a bottom portion and a side wall portion, the edge of the side wall portion bein notched, there being radial scores extending from the bottoms of the notches and triangularly disposed scores between the radial scores, the apices of the triangularly disposed scores-being at the crowns of the notches, their bases extending between the inner ends of said radial scores and being the folding scores between the bottom and side so that when erected, the side wall portion folds into triangular flutings with inwardly inclined edges.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal in the presence of two witnesses.
