A TTORNEY Patented May 20, 1930' RAE SILBERGER, OF ARROYO SANITOBIUM, CALIFORNIA SPICE-CONTAINER BACK Application filed April 8,
Y The present invention relates to improvements in revoluble spice-container racks, and more particularly to those of magazine character wherein, through the rotation of a particular magazine element, a, container carrying the needed spice or seasoning. may be brought into a position convenient for supplying the need.
A primary object of the invention is the provision of means for dispensing spices and seasonings, constituted of two or more revoluble magazine elements arranged tier-like, each comprising a circular circumferentially lipped lower member constituting the base upon which the containers are to be carried,
and a circular upper member provided circumferentially with semicircular cut-outs adapted to receive containers of a desired size and to alford to these, in conjunction with the lip borne by the lower member, a supporting means for retaining them in readily removable position.
A further object of the invention is to provide a spice and seasoning dispensing device for the convenience of cooks and housewives.
An additional object of the invention is to provide a dispensing device of the characterdesignated that is of cheap, simple. du-
rable and attractive construction, and adaptable for installation in a position most convenient for the use of those needing spices and seasonings in their culinary work.
Supplementary to the foregoing is that of providing a conveniently to hand dispenser of spices and seasonings, of portable character, and adaptable for hanging on a wall or for placement upon any suitable support that will bring it within easy reach of a cook while on duty.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be made to appear as this specification progresses, and be more fully brought out in the claims hereto appended.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which similar reference characters, throughout, refer to like parts:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device, wherein are shown the arrangement of the 1929. Serial No. 353,301.
revoluble magazines and their supporting spindle, and the containers as borne thereby;
Figure 2 is a plan view of the magazine rack, showing the upper containers, their revoluble supporting base, and the. upper notched rack for retaining the containers in place upon-their supporting base;
Figure 3 is a plan .viewof one of the notched retaining racks; and
Figure 4 is a sectional'detail illustrating 2 the method of'mounting the lower end of the supporting spindle for, revoluble movement relative to the frame.
Referring to the drawings in detail, the numeral 5 designates in a general way an L-shaped frame preferably constructed of wood, or other light material, and comprismg a rigidly fixed horizontal support 6, an upright member 7 and a hinged arm 8 hinged at the point 9 to the upright 7.
Au'evoluble spindle 10 is mounted in a bearmg recess 11 formed in the end of support 6 and said arm 6 carries the full weight of the spindle and the various racks and bases, as hereinafter described. A plurality of spaced flange-members 12, 13, 14: and 15 are mounted upon the spindle 10 and are rigidly secured thereto in any suitable manner, the lower flange 12 having concentrically mounted thereonthe lower circular container supporting base 16, the flange 13 bearing) the lower container rack 17, the flange 14; earing the upper circular supporting base 18, and the flange 15 the upper rack 19.
The'circular bases 16 and 18 are equally spaced between the frame arms 6 and 8 and the racks 17 and 19 are properly spaced above the bases 16 and 18 to form support-s for a plurality of containers mounted in circular fashion upon the circular bases, as clearly shown in Figure 2.
The bases 16 and 18 are each provided with a circular bead 20, as indicated in. Figure 2, to provide means for Holding the lower ends of the containers in place and the racks 17 and 19 are each provided with a plurality of equally spaced notches 21 arranged in radial fashion to provide supports for the upper ends of the containers.
Both bases and racks are fixed to the spin- 10o dle 10 and rotate therewith and the upper end of the spindle rotates in a bearing recess 22 formed in the underside of the hinged arm 8, so that by swinging this arm upwardly the entire magazine may be removed from the frame for cleaning purposes.
The upright 7 of the frame may be attached to any suitable object to hold the magazine in suspended position, or, the magazine may be placed upon a table with the arm 6 acting as a support therefor.
The lower and upper rows of containers 23 and 24, respectively, may be of any suitable material, such as metal, or glass, the upper row of these containers preferably being the smaller and intended for spices, While the lolwer may be used for flour, sugar and the li (e.
I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. In a device of the class described, a supporting frame, a vertically disposed spindle mounted therein, means carried by said spindle for supporting a plurality of containers in circular formation thereabout, said means comprising annular bases having beaded outer edges and a hinged bearing support carried by the frame whereby the entire unit may be removed from the frame.
2. A dispensin rack of the class described comprising, a substantially L-shaped frame having a rigid supporting arm and an upright member, a hinged arm secured to the upper end of said upright member, bearings formed in said rigid arm and said hinged arm, a revoluble spindle mounted in said bearings, spaced annular container supporting bases fixed on said spindle and turnable therewith, and having annular beads formed at their outer edges and notched racks arranged aboi e said bases and fixed to the spindle to provide means for retaining the containers in place upon said bases.
In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature this 11th day of March, 1920.
