ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 2, 1926.



Application filed April 2, 1924. Serial No. 703,766.

The object of this invention is to provide a container with a pouring spout of such construction that a predetermined quantity of the contents of the container will be dis- 5 pensed during each pouring operation.

To the attainment of this and other objects which will present themselves as the nature of the invention is better understood, reference is to be had to the drawing which accompanies and which forms part of this application.

In the drawing 1- Figure 1 is an elevation of a container embodying the improvement, looking toward the pouring spout.

Figure 2 is a sectional view therethrough.

Figure 3 is a sectional view on the line 33 of Figure 2.

In the drawing, I have illustrated my improvement in connection with a sugar bowl, but it is to be understood that the same is not to be restricted to this particular class of containers and may be employed with equal success in connection with 2 any other condiment holder. The improvement is primarily but not necessarily designed for household use.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the nun'ieral- 1 designates a container closed except for an opening in its top, and this opening is normally scaled by a cover 2. Suitable intereugaging means is provided between the container and the cover to pre' vent the accidental removal of the cover when the contained is tilted. The container may be provided with the usual handle 3.

The side t of the container is gradually increased in thickness from. its bottom to its top. The thickened portion, at the top thereof, has a transverse pocket 9 therein whose outer face is open and whose inner wall is-l'ormed by the inner wall 5 of the container. This inner wall 5 has its upper end extended into the pocket 9, as indicated by the numeral (3, the said extended portion being disposed below the top 7 of the container. The wall 5, at its juncture with the extension 6, is formed with a series of upwardly inclined fingers 10, designed to prevent lumps of sugar or the like entering the pocket in travel over the wall 6 into the pocket 9 when the container is tilted. The top 7 at the portion thereof arranged over the pocket 9, is rounded, as at '7, and extended to form a partition 8 that divides the pocket into inner and outer compartments and into a lower basin, the outer wall of which is indicated by the numeral 3. The part or partition 8 is disposed a suitable distance above the bottom of the basin and is, of course, out of contact with the wall 3 of the said basin. For distinction the basin is indicated by the numeral 11.

The construction and advantages thereof will, it is thought be perfectly apparent to those skilled in the art to which such invention relates when the foregoing description has been read in connection with the accompanying drawings.

Having described the invention, I claim A container having a top and having a portion of its outer face gradually increased in thickness from its bottom to its top and said portion from the upper end thereof having va transverse pocket therein whose outer face is open and whose inner face is formed by the inner wall of the container and said inner wall having its upper end =rdending into the pocket below the top of the container and formed below said exten ion with a laterally arranged inwardly inclined serie of fingers, the lower wall of the pocket being dished to provide a basin and the top of the container having a wall part which extends into the pocket and which is spaced from the rear wall thereof and which teru'iin'ates above the bottom of the basin. sail wall part having a width equal to that of the pocket.

In testimony whereof I atlix my signature.
