SANITARY ICE CREAM-GONE HOLDER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 4., 192:).
Application filed June 23, 1919. Serial No. 306,231.
To all whom itmay concern:
Be it known that I, SAMIEL A. Kormswnn'r, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have 1nvented a new and useful Sanitary Ice- OI'BZLIII'COHG Holder, of which the following as a specification.
This invention relates to a holder for ice-cream cornucopias andhas for its primary object the provision of a device in which ice cream cones may be placed to eliminate manual handling of the same.
A further object of my invention is to provide a holder of the character referred to which is adapted to receive and support columns of unfilled cornucopias and which is further provided with supporting means for individual cones filled with ice cream.
Other objects and advantages will appear in the subjoined detailed description.
The accompanying drawings illustrate the invention Figure 1 is a perspective view of my sanitary ice cream cone holder.
Fig. 2 as a top plan view of the same with the cover in a removed and extended position. i
Fig. 3 is a verticalsection of the holder illustrated in Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a perspective of the cone serving plate detached from the holder illustrating the method of passing the filled cone to the purchaser.
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of one of the clips forming a part of my ice cream cone holder.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the other of said clips.
Referring to the drawings, there is provided a receptacle having a bottom 2, a front wall 3 and side walls 4. The front wall 3 and side walls 4 are formed preferably of glass and are received within an upwardly extending vertical flange 5 formed on the base 2. A-back 6 is hinged at its bottom as at 7 t0 the flange 5 of the base 2 and is provided along its sides with vertical flanges 8 adapted to abut against and receive the side glass walls 4. A top 9 is hinged at 10 to the back 6 and is provided with downwardly extending vertical flanges 11 adapted to overlap or receive the front wall 3 and side walls 4.
The upper meeting corners of the front wall 3 and side walls 4 are secured together by right angle clips 12 which are provided with overlapping portions 13 adapted to receive the said walls. Each of the clips 12 is formed with an outstanding ear 14 which may be conveniently constructed by cutting the front face of the clip and bending the out material outward as illustrated at 15 in Fig. 5. The ear 14 of one of the clips 12 is apertured at 16 and the ear 14 of the opposite clip 12 is slotted as at 17. The clip having the slotted ear is also provided with a projection 18 spaced below its ear 14, which projection 18 constitutes a hook for a purpose hereinafter referred to.
A rod 19 is slidably and revolubly inserted at one end within the aperture 16 and at its opposite end is received within the slot 17. The end portion of thcrod 19 which is received within the slot 17 is constructed with a reverse Z-shaped form, the lower apex 20of which is adapted to surround and hook upon the extension 18. The extreme end of the rod 20 is provided with a handle 20. A serving plate 21 iscarried by the rod "19, which serving plate is apertured as at 22 to receive and support cornucopias when filled, particularly see Fig. 4.
A base 23 is mounted upon the bottom 2, which base is provided with a plurality of apertures 24, which apertures have downwardly converging walls. A plate 25 is secured upon the top of the base 23, which plate is provided with apertures adapted to ligegister with the apertures 24 of the said ase.
In practice, my sanitary ice cream cone holder is used as'follows:
Columns of cones are mounted in upright position within the apertures 24, the cones being mounted one within the other as illustrated in Figs. 1 and 3. The back 6 and top 9 of the holder are then placed in the closed position illustrated in Fig. 1. The holder thus provides a means for storing the empty cones without permitting dust or dirt to come in contact with the same. -When it is desired to fill and serve a cone the top 9 and back 6 will be removed and folded back as illustrated in Fig. 2, whereupon access may be had to the columns of empty cones. One of the same may then be removed and filled preferably by the use of a sanitary device in the manner described in my application serially numbered 266,872. After the cone has been filled it is placed Within one of the apertures 22 of the serving plate 21.
It is to be noted that the appearance of my holder is such that it will be found con- Venient and pleasant to have the same situated on a counter in view of the custom ers. However if it is desired to serve the filled cone to a customer at some distance from the holder proper, the handle 2O is moved inward toward the body of the holder to release the apex from the hook 18, whereby the handle is lifted upward to remove the rod 19 from the slot 17. The rod 19 is then moved to withdraw its end from the aperture 16 of the clip 12. The serving plate 21 containing the filled cone is then carried, as illustrated in Fig. 4, to the one to receive the filled cone.
If desired the serving plate 21 need not remain in the extended position illustrated in Fig. 1 if there is no demand for cones. The handle 20 may be manipulated as above described to unhook the apex 20 from the hook 18 and the serving plate 21 allowed to rotate downwardly adjacent the front wall 3.
' I have thus provided a convenient and simple device which is economical in construction. If used with a grapple as set forth in my application serially numbered 266,872, cornucopias may be served in a sanitary manner without contact with the hands of the vender.
My invention is not limited to the precise structural details herein exhibited but contemplates changes, alterations and modifications within the scope of the appended claims. 7
