CONTAINER Filed May 14, 1927 HNL; Lf;

f7? z/eff for Patented l Feb. lil', i 1930 UNITED L"s'rares I HENRY E'. Bannon., or entende, `:[LLrNoIs CONTAINER e application mea may l14, 1927. serial $10,191,319.

My invention relates to improvements in cans or containers for fluids and the; like and has for one object to provide a new and improved form of container which may be stacked with other containers end to end and wherein there is apermanently installed pouring spout which is' protected and whichn may be used for pouring liquids from the container without theinterposition of any additional or removable pouring means. An-

other object is to provide a new and improved type of container for use with such a spout. Other objects will appear from time to time throughout thespeciiicationI and claims.

My invention is illustrated more or less diagrammatcally in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a side elevation of two lor the containers with parts in section; f

Figure 2 is a plan view of the container; Figure 3 isa section along the line 3-3 of Figure 2; i 1 Figure 4 is a detail front elevation; Figure 5 is a diagrammatic view showing 25 the container in use.

Like parts are indicated bylike characters throughout the specification' and drawings. A is a generally cylindrical cam, slightly tapered so that the outside diameter at the top is a little less than the outside diameter at the bottom. The top and bottom heads of the container are rolled into place in contact with the cylindrical walls as indicated at A1 and A2, there being an upwardly extended flange at thetop'and a downwardly extended flange at the bottoni,` theA inner diameter of the downwardly extendingy bottom flange being just suiliciently *greater than the buter diameter oi 4the upwardly extending top' flange so that one can may stand upon an'- other as indicated in FigureY 1, the `flanges interlocking to hold the containers in proper position. The top plate A3 has a central bossv Atto which a handle A may be attached.0

yProjecting upwardly from the top plate A3 at a point adjacent the periphery of the container is a spout B. This spout is brazed or welded or otherwise suitably fastened to the plate A3 in permanent relation. The

outer side of the spout B is outwardly extending to form a pouring lip Bf, and laterally extending from the spout is the flange B2 surroundinga the spout and merging into the jpouringtlip at a point just Jinside the periphery of the container. Extending downwardV 55 ly from the flange B2 is an integral collar B3 which in this `cas-e is threaded to engage the closure cap B4.

The flange A1 is cut away in front of the J spout B and pouring lip B1 as indicated at C 60 andwthe wallof the container4 as at C1 is bent rearwardly to provide a clearance between thev flange and the under edge of the collarl B3 so that areceptacle C2 may penetrate the space between them .to insure'that whenma- 65 -terial is poured from the/container there will be nodropping down the side thereof. Under some conditions, of course it might 4be suflcient merely to cut the lange away without inward bending but the inward 70 `bending is preferable as it adds strength and gives more room for the edge of the container into which liquid is to be poured to penetrate between the room and the collar.

By t-hisarrangement when the cams are stacked, the relatively fragile spout is pro# tected by the--flangepn the upper container and since the spout terminates at a point belowthe edge of the rim of the container, it is at all times thoroughly protect-ed.

I claim:

1. The'combination vwith a container having an upwardly extending top ilange, of a f fixed spout having a laterally extended pour# ing lip terminating below the flange, theI Iiange being cut away in linewith the pouring spouttto provide a clearance between the flange and the spout for the edge of the receptacle into which material is to be poured.

2. The combination with a container having an upwardly extending top ange, of a fixed spout having a laterally extended pouring lip terminating below the `i'iange, the flange being cut away in line with the pouring spout to provide a clearance between the flange and the spout for the edge ofthe receptacle i to which material is to be poured, the wall o the container adjacent such cutaway portion being inwardly bent to increase such L clearance. J l

3. `The combination with a container having an upwardly extending top ange of a fixed pourin spout having a pouring'lip terminating be ow thev plane of the ange, the 5 flange being reduced in height adjacent the pouring spout.

4. The combination with a container having an upwardly extended top flangeof a v fixedl pouring spout having a pouring lip term minating-'below the plane of the flange, the flange being reduced in height adjacent the pouring spout, the spout being laterally exy tended toward and over the flange adjacent 4the portion of the ange the height of which is reduced.

5. The combination with a container having an upwardly extended topflange, of a fixed pouring spout positioned adjacent said -ilange and having a pouring lip terminat- 20 ing below the normal plane of the ange, the

portion of the flange adjacent said spout being reduced to a height lower than the plane of said )pouring lip.

6. The combination v'with a container having an upwardly extended to'p ange, of a fixed pouring spout positioned adjacent said flange and having a'pouring lip terminating below the .normal plane of the flange, the portion of the flan e adjacent said spout being reduced to a helght lower than the plane of said pouringv lip, thepouring lip. extending j laterally outwardly beyond such portion of Jthe iiange. a Signed at Chicago, county of Cook and State of Illinois, this 6th day of May, 1927.
