Inventor Atto rneys WILLIAM J. EISENHABDT, OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.
I Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 18, 1916.
Application filed September 23, 1914. Serial No. 863,138.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, WILLIAM J. EISE N- rIARD'r, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented a new and useful Cone-Dispenser, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to improvements in cone dispensers, or to a dispenser for holding an exhibiting telescopic receptacle, one object of the invention, being the provision of a device of this character which provides a sanitary means for holding cones, especially adapted for use in connection with the dispensing of ice cream in such a manner that the cones are readily accessible, and yet at the same time are protected from A further object of the present invention, is the provision of a dispenser of this character in which a rod is so disposed as to carry the cover for the receptacle and yet at the same time be slidably engaged by the cone carrying member, thus permitting a limited movement between the cone carryingmovement and the rod and cover so that the cover may be raised from the receptacle to permit access to the cones without the elevation to any great extent of the cones.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the drawings-Figure 1 is a perspective view of the complete dispenser. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view therethrough showing the cover in elevated position. Fig.
3 is a cross section taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the sleeve carrying the cone receiving rings.
. Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates a jar, which is preferably made of glass or other transparent material so that the contents-may be readily discerni= ble. v
The sleeve 2 which is mounted removably within the jar 1 so that the same may be pleasure,
bodily removed therefrom and replaced at tered boi'1?s"3-ar@ 4, the junction of which is dust, dampness and harmful handling.
the description is provided with the two diame-' formed with the annular shoulder 5. A rod 6 is mounted for slidable movement witlnnthe bores of the sleeve 2, the same being of slightly less diameter'than the reduced bore 4 and being provided with a head 7 which is of greater diameter than the bore 4 and for engagement with the shoulder 5 so that when the rod 6 is elevated, the sleeve 2 may be elevated therew th. The upper end of the rod 6 is seated within and fixed to the cylindrical member 7 of the cover 8, said cover'8 being provided with the flange 9 for engaging the rim 10 of the jar 1. I Thus the rod 6 is fixedly secured to the cover, so that when the cover is elevated, therod '6 is also elevated. In order to readily manipulate the cover, there is provided the milled rim 11 and the spherical knob 12 at the upper end thereof. Carrled by the sleeve 2 intermediate of its ends, is the circular disk 13, which has secured to the periphery thereof at equi-distant points a' plurality of cone receiving rings 14, there being three shown in the present instance, forthe reception of the nested cient quantity of thenested cones C, to practically fill the jar. 1, as illustrated in Figs.
'1 and 2, and that by constructing the cover with the rod 6, so that the rod 6 isslidable within the sleeve 2, the cover may be elevated as shown in Fig. 2 to permit access to the uppermost cones of each stack, thus permitting the same to be removed one at a time as needed. As the cones are removed, and approach the rings 1 1, the carr ing sleeve 2 may be elevated accordingly rom the jar 1,. to permit access to the lowermost cones.
From the foregoing description, it is evident that the present cone dispenser, is a sanitary device, which is both useful and ornamental, and which will permit of full access to the cones during the dispensing thereof. 25 What is claimed is: 4* 1. A dispenser of this character, comprising a sleeve, a receptacle holding means carried thereby, a rod slidably mounted within the sleeve for limited movement, and a cover for the receptacle carried by the red at the opposite end to the sleeve.
2. A dispenser of this character, comprising a substantially cylindrical receptacle, a vsleeve having a doubled diametered bore therethrough, a plurality of article receiving members carried by the sleeve, a rod ried by the sleeve, a rod mounted for sliding movement in said sleeve and for limited movement in one direction, and a cover fixed to the opposite end of the rod.
4. A dispenser of this character, having a sleeve, a plurality of article holders carried. by the sleeve, a rod mounted for sliding movement in said sleeve and for limited movement in one direction, a cover fixed to the opposite end of the rod, and a manipulating knob carried concentrically of the cover and coaxial with the rod.
5. A dispenser of this character, having a sleeve, a plurality of radially disposed rings carried thereby and constituting means for receiving nested articles, a rod having one end slidably mounted in the sleeve for limited movement, and a cover fixedly connected to the opposite end of the rod and constituting a means whereby the rod and sleeve are elevated simultaneously.
6. A dispenser of this character, having a sleeve, a plurality of radially disposed rings carried thereby and constituting means for receiving nested articles, a rod having one end slidably mounted in the sleeve for limited movement, a cover fixedly connected to the opposite end of the rod and constituting a means whereby the rod and sleeve are elevated simultaneously, and an operating knob disposed concentrically of the cover and coaxial with the rod.
7 A dispenser of the class described comprising a container, an article receiving tray, a rod slidably mounted through the tray, and means carried by the rod for limiting the upward sliding movement of the rod relative to the tray whereby the said tray may be bodily lifted by the rod.
8. A dispenser of this character, comprising'a container, an article receiving tray, :1. rod accessible from above the container and slidable through the tray, and means carried upon the lower end of the rod for limiting the sliding movement of the tray and by means of which the tray may be bodily-lifted by the rod.
9. A dispenser of the class described comprising a container, an article receiving tray, a rod slidably mounted through the tray, means carried by the rod for limiting the upwardsliding movement of the rod relative to the tray whereby the said tray may be bodily lifted by the rod, and means for supporting the tray above the bottom of the container during the lowering of the rod through the tray.
10. The combination with a container, of a rod, a platform slidably mounted upon the rod, and a cover for the container connected with said rod.
11. The combination with a container, of a rod, a cover connected with the rod, a platform slidably mounted on the rod and provided with cone receiving openings, and means for limiting the downward movement of the platform within the container.
12. The combination with a container, of an article supporting platform adapted to be seated in the container, a cover for the container, and a connection between the cover and the platform, wherebythe latter may be raised by the former, said cover being capable of a limited movement independently of the platform.
13. The combination with a container, of an article supporting platform seated in the container, and a cover for the container connected with the platform for raising the same and capable of a limited independent movement.
14. The combination with a container, of an article supporting platform seated in the container, a cover removable from the jar independently of the platform, and a platform raising connection between the cover and the platform, for limiting the independent movement of the cover, whereby when the cover has been raised the prescribed distance its further movement will raise the platform.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
WILLIAM J. EISENHARDT.
