HOLDER non CONTAINERS.
Application filed August 15, 1924.
This invention is a device for holding 10- tion bottles or other receptacles, such as containers for salt, pepper, spices, and the like.
One of the objects of. this invention is to provide a simple device by means of which a container, such as a bottle for instance, may be normally. supported in inverted position, so that it is readily accessible for immediate use, and time and trouble saved in dispensing its contents. A further object is to provide means whereby the holder may be removably but firmly secured to a wall or other solid perpendicular surface.
The invention will be hereinafter fully setforth and particularly pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating a holder constructed in accordance with the invention, with a bottle supported thereby. Figure 2 is a transverse sectional View of the holder, illustrating the manner of securing the supporting screw thereto.
Referring to the drawing, the holder com.- prises a band like body 10 of any desired shape, having its lower edges turned inwardly to provide a container supporting flange 11. Said body may be of any desired shape in plan view. In the drawing the structure is illustrated as of rectangular shape, slit at the corners contiguous to the lower edges, as indicated at 12, and said edges bent inwardly to provide the flange 11. The holder may be removably secured to a wall or other solid perpendicular surface by means of a support member. preferably a screw 13, the head 14 of which is permanently and integrally secured to one face of the body 10, by welding or soldering, as indicated at 15.
The container for purposes of illustra- Serial No. 732,236.
tion, is shownas consisting of a bottle 16, having the shoulder formed by the neck thereof, resting upon the supporting flange The top of the bottle is closed by a screw cap 17, provided with a dispensing valve 18, whlch may be of any preferred construction.
ready for use.
The advantages of the invention will be understood by those skilled in the art to which it belongs.
It will be particularly noted that the holder is provided with means by which it may be rigidly secured in any desired place, and the container supported in such a manner that its contents may be readily dispensed with the expenditure of a minimum of time and trouble. Having thus explained the nature of the invention and described an operative mannor of constructing and using the same, although without attempting to set forth all of the forms in which it may be made, or all of the forms of its use, what is claimed is 2- A holder for containers com-prising an endless sheet metal band having its bottom edge turned inwardly at a slight angle to provide a container supporting flange, and a screw projecting outwardly from the exterior of said band, said screw being integrally united to said band.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
