BOTTLE STOPPBR. APPLICATION FILED MAY 28, 1972.

-: sesame PATENT anion OSCAR SONDHELM, OF NEW YORK, AND HARRY M. VEIT, 0F BROOKLYN, NEW YORK,
ASSIGNORS TO CARL BOMEISLER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, OSCAR SONDHELM and HARRY M. Vnrr, both citizens of the United States, said SONDHELM residing in the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and State of New York, and said VEIT residing in. the borough of Brooklyn, county of Kings, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Stoppers, of which the following is a specification.
The object of the invention is to provide a strong and inexpensive stopper for bottles and the like, in which little or no metal shall be exposed to contact with the contents of the bottle, in which a soft and compressible substance, such as shell cork, may be employed as the closure, and which will permit the contents to be easily and safely removed in desired quantities, whether small or large.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in whioh Figure l is a side elevation; Fig. 2, a cross-section, partly in elevation; Fig. 3, a view partly in elevation and partly 1n section, illustrating the several parts prior to assembly; and Fig. 4 a plan view of the stopper with the closing plug removed.
In carrying out the invention in the preferred form illustrated in the drawings, we employ a ca A, preferably of metal and provided Witi the neck a, one part whereof, a, extends above the surface of said cap to form a pouring-spout, while the other part, a projects. below the surface of said a cap for coaction with a suitable clampingplate, whereby the cap A is secured to the cork or other closure B. A practicable form of clauuJing-plate is illustrated in Figs. 2 and'3. As here shown, it comprises a disk C, centrally perforated at c and provided with These are here shown as two in number, although such number may be varied. Also, as here shown, the fingers c closely fit around the periphery of the cork B (or may be impressed therein), the ends (a of said fingers being inlurned and impressed into the material of such cork to firmly grasp the same.
The clamping-plate C, if of the preferred construction above described and therefore separable from, rather than integral with, the cap A, may be secured to said cap in Specification of Letters Patent.

the simple and efiicie'nt manner illustrated in llgS. 2 and of the drawings. As here shown, the clamping-plate C and cap A. are
pressed together, so as to permit. the downwardly projecting portion of the neck a of said cap A to protrude through the central ori tice o of said clamping-plate C. The edge of the part a may then, as illustrated in F 2, be expanded outwardly and thereby crimped around the under surface of the clamping-plate C, so as to bind the same firmly to said cap A.
The cork B (the word cork being used in a generic sense, to include a closure of any material) is provided with a central perforation b. lVith this coacts the shank (Z of a closing plug D, said shank (I? being of snelr diameter as to snugly fill the perforation Z) of ti e cork B, as cell as, although preferably less snugly. the perforatiomextending through the neck a. The head of said plug is provided with an annular recess d of such size as to snugly receiveor cover the upper part a" of said neck to.
As will be readily understood, a bottlestopper employing our invention is very simple in. construction, comprising but few parts, and these are capable of ready and easy assembly, whereby said parts are permanently secured in operative position. Practically none of the metallic parts are in such a position as ordinarily to be brought into contact with the contents of the bottle, and, in addition, such contents may easily be removed in predetermined (piantities,,by means of the pouring'spout a.
Having now described our invention, What we claim as new therein and desire to secure by Letters Patent is as follows 1. A bottle-stopper comprising a centrally perforated cap, a centrally perforated cork secured to the under side of the cap, a tubular member formed on the cap in alinement with the perforation therein and extending above the cap to form a pouring spout and below the cap into contact with the cork and a closing plug having a shank adapted to enter the tubular member and perforated cork and a recess around the upper end of the shank adaptedto receive. the pouring spout, substantially asset forth.
2. A bottle-stopper comprising a centrally perforated cap, a centrally perforated plate secured to the under side thercoii'a perforated cork secured to said plate, a tubular and cap by said clamping means, a tubular member rising from-the cap about the central perforation therein and forming a pouring spout, and a plug having a shank adapted to enter said member and cork and a recess about the upper end of the shank'to receive the pouring spout, substantially as set forth.
4-. A bottlestcpper, comprising a cap and a clamping-plate both centrally perforated and secured together by having the material of one about its central perforation turned over the edge of the other about its central perforation, clamping means formed in said plate, and a cork secured to the plate and cap by said clamping means, substantially as set forth.
5.' A bottle-stopper, comprising a cap and a clamping-plate both centrally perforated and secured together by having the material of one about its central perforation turned in said plate over the edge of the other about its central perforation, said cap extending outwardly beyond said plate, clamping means formed at the periphery thereof, a cenraoaese trally perforated cork secured to the plate and cap by said means, and a plug the stem perforated cap,'a clamping-plate secured to said cap by turning over the edges thereof adjacent to the central perforation therein, fingers carried by said clampingplate, a centrally perforated cork secured to said cap and clamping-plate by means of said fingers, and a. plug coacting with the central perfo rations in said cap, said clamping-plate and said cork, substantially as set forth.
.8. A bottle-stopper comprising a cap havingon one side thereof a pouring-spout and on. the other side a centrally perforated cork, said pouring-spout extending through said cap and terminating between the same and said cork, and a plug coacting with the perforations in said spout and cork, substantially as set forth.
This specification signed and witnessed this 23rd day of May, 1912.
