. CONTAINER HOLDER. I

Application filed September 20, 1926. Serial Ii'o. 136,548.

the other containers therein and without any great liabilityof breaking thev same. I

A further and important ob ect is' to pm vi-de a holder that includes means whereby containers of various sizes may be deposited therein and wherein the same will be properly centered within the" holder regardless of the careless manner that the same are usually disposed within the holder.

A final salient object is to provide a holder for ice cream cones and the like that is extremely simple of construction and inexpensive of manufacture, the same comprising but few parts and these so co-related 26 as to reduce the liability of breakage to a.

minimum.

Other objects will become apparent as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same comprising the novel form, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

In the drawing wherein like numerals indicate like parts:

Figure 1 is a front elevation of a container holder constructed in accordance with the present invention, the same being shown as being used for holding ice cream cones.

Figure 2 is a detail vertical section thereof taken substantially upon. the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figures 3 and 4 are perspectives of two of the ring units that are provided as elements of the holder, a plurality of the same being supplied to the purchasers of the holders, said ring elements being constructed with tapered openings of various diameters for a purpose hereinafter more fully described, and

Figure 5 is an enlarged transverse section of the holder casing at the lower end thereof, said ring units being removed to more clearly disclose the means at the lower end of the casing for supporting the ring units in superposed relation therein.

Now having particular reference to the drawing, my novel holder constitutes the 'i provision of a cylindrical casing 5 of suitable material and of predetermined dimen slon, the same being open at its opposite 'endsand being provided at its upper end with a. slip-type cover 6. Furthermore, the casing 5 may be, and preferably is equipped adjacent its upper end and at its opposite sides with a pair of lateral brackets 77 to facilitate the securing of the casing to the 7 wall or other support.

The holder further constitutes the provision of a plurality of ring element-s 8, preferably three in number. These ring elements are of wood or other similar material, and of diameter slightly less than the internal diameter of the casing 5 so as to fit snugly therein as indicated in Figure 2. These rings 8 are each formed with tapered central openings that gradually increase in diameter from the bottom ring upward so as to provide a conical shaped opening through the rings when the same are arranged in the superposed relation as in Figure 2.

At the bottom open end of-the casing 5 there is formed a plurality of inwardly directed lugs 9 upon which the rings 8 will be supported so as to prevent the accidental disengagement of the same from the casing through the lower end thereof.

Obviously, if the ice cream cones or other containers to be deposited into the holder are of greater diameter at their larger ends than the opening in the lowermost ring 8, said ring should be removed, it being necessary that the lowermost ring have an opening of a diameter substantially equivalent to the diameter of the large end of the container to be deposited into the casing.

By reason of the plurality of rings 8, the uppermost one of which has a tapered opening of such a diameter as to provide a knife edge at the top side of the ring in order that the cones being deposited in the casing will be centered through the ring, the con tainer will project through the lowermost ring in correctly centered manner.

It will thus be seen that I have provided a highly novel, simple, and eflicient form of holder for ice cream cones and the like that is well adapted for all the purposes heretofore designated and even though I have herein shown and described the same as consisting of certain detail structural elements it is nevertheless to be understood. that some changes may be made therein without afiecting the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim is 1. In a container holder of the character described, a casing open at its lower end, a plurality of superposed rings arranged within the lower end of the casing and having registering tapered openings of gradually increasing area toward the uppermost ring, the opening in the lowermost ring at its smallest area being of substantially the same diameter as the enlarged end of the cone so as to support the container therein but yet to allow the same to be forcibly withdrawn therefrom, and means for supporting the rings within the lower open end of the caslng.

2. In a container holder of the character described, a casing open at its lower end, a plurality of superposed rings removably associated within the lower end of the casing and having registering tapered openings of gradually increasing area toward the uppermost ring, the opening in the lowermost ring at its smallest area being of substantially the same diameter as the-enlarged end of the container so as to support the same therein but yet to allow the container to be forcibly withdrawn therefrom, and means for supporting the rings within the lower open end of the casing.

3. In a container holder of the class described, a casing open at its lower ends, a plurality of superposed rings removably arranged within the lower end of the casing and having registering tapered openings of gradually increasing areatoward the uppermost ring, the opening in the lowermost ring at its smallest area being ofsubstantiall the same diameter as the enlarged end of t e container so as to'support the same therein but yet allow the container to be forcibly withdrawn therefrom through the bottom of the'casing, and inwardly directed lugs formed on the open lower end, of the casing on which the Iowermo'st'ring is adapted to rest. v

In testimony whereof I afiix'my signature. g v
