I friv'enta r, J G. Thompson.




To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, J OHN GORDON THOMP- soN, a resident of the city of London, in the county of Middlesex, in the Province of Ontario, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Straw Holders,

of which the following is the specification.

My invention relates to improvements in straw holders and the object of the invention is to devise a straw holder applicable to 'dispensing containers for beverages.

A further object is to devise a straw holder which will keep the straws in a sanitary condition and in which there will be no liability of their coming in contact with dirty counters or tables.

My invention consists of a straw holder constructed and arranged substantially as hereinafter more particularly described and illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which:

Fig. 1 represents a perspective view of a glass or mug showing my straw holder formed integrally therewith.

Fig. 2 is a perspective View of a modified form of my straw holder showing the same separate from the dispensing container and detachably secured thereto, and

Fig. 3 is a perspective detail of a modified form of straw holder.

Like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different views.

1 is the straw holder provided with an open top 2 and a closed or partially closed bottom 3 and adapted to hold the straws in a substantially vertical position exteriorly of the dispensing container.

In the forms shown in Figure 1 the straw holder is preferably formed integrally with a dispensing container 4.

In the modified form shown in Figures 2 and 3 the straw holder is provided with an Specification of Letters Patent. I Patented June 20, 1922.

Application filed November 23, 1921.

Serial No. 517,329.

open spring band 6 preferably formed integrally therewith and adapted to clip the straw holder to the container holder' 7 as is illustrated in Figure 2.

It will be apparent thatthere are many different ways of attaching the straw holder to the container and while in the drawings I have shown two ways of doing this, it is to be understood that I do not confine myself to these means of attachment as it would be within the scope of the invention to use any other suitable means of attachment.

If desired a drain hole 8 can be provided in the bottom 3 of the holder in order to permit the escape of any liquid that may pass down from the straws when they have been used.

What I claim as my invention is 1. A straw holder for beverage dispensers comprising a bucket having an open top and inner side and means for detachably holding said bucket in engagement with the dispenser whereby it closes the open inner side.

2. A straw holder for beverage dispensers comprising a bucket having an open top and inner side, an open band formed on the JOHN GORDON THOMPSON.
