y 1932- R. 1.. HUNTER CONFECTTON HOLDER Filed May 25, 1931 9 6 59 floberfLfiu Patented July 19, 1 932 UNITED STATES PATENT? OFFICE ROBERT L. HUNTER, OF NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, ASSIGNOR TO H. B. HUNTER COMPANY, OI

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA i I GONFEC'IION HOLDER Application filed May 25, 1931. Serial No. 539,898.

My invention relates to improvements in holders for confections or the like, and more particularly to holders of the kind employed to hold ice cream coated with chocolate, although not necessarily restricted to this use.

An importantobject of my invention is to provide a device of this character which will be easy to grasp, which will not allow the ice cream or other confection to slip, and which shall be inexpensive to manufacture.

Other objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent during the course of the following description. a

In the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this specification, and wherein like characters of reference denote like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is an elevation of a paddle forming my invention,

Figure 2 is an edge view thereof showing a disk used therewith,

Figure 8 is a plan view thereof,

Figure 4 is a plan view of the disk,

Figure 5 is an elevation of a modified form of paddle,

Figure 6 is a plan view thereof,

Figure 7 is a plan view of the disk,

Figure 8 is an elevation of another form of my invention,

Figure 9 is a plan view thereof,

Figure 10 is a plan view of the disk used therewith,

Figure 11 is an elevation of still another form of my invention,

Figure 12 is a plan view thereof,

Figure 13 is a plan of the disk used therewith,

Figure 14 is an elevation of yet another form of my invention,

Figures 15, 16 and 17 are details showing various ways of forming the paddles, and,

Figure 18 is a plan view of a modified form of disk to be used with the paddle shown in Figure 11.

In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 20 designates my improved confection stick or paddle which is relatively wide and thin and is preferably slightly dished or concavo-convex in crosssection. The ends of the paddle are preferably rounded as seen in Figure 1. In use a scoop of ice cream or other confection, which may be covered with chocolate or other coating, is impaled on the paddle which serves as a handle. p

I prefer to use a disk 21 with the paddle to support the ice cream although the paddle may be used without the disk. This disk is. made of card board or other suitable material and is provided with an elongated rectangular opening 22 centrally thereof. The; paddle is inserted through the opening 22 in the disk. The opening 22 is preferably so narrow that the paddle must besprung into an arc more nearly approaching a straight line, in order to be received in the opening, thereby producing tension which gives a positive gripping action on'the disk to prevent it from slipping.

When the ice cream,represented at 23 in Figure 2, is impaled on the paddle, it rests upon the disk 21 which is spaced from the top of the paddle. The disk supports the ice cream, preventing dripping of the ice cream on the hands ofthe user. The shape of the paddle not only affords a firm grip for the disk but is easily grasped by the user.

In the modification shown in Figures 5, 6 and 7 the upper end of the paddle 24 is notched on one side at 2'5 to form a shoulder 26 s 'aced a substantial distance from the top of t e paddle, and a reduced end portion or prong 27 which preferably has its ends rounded. The paddle 24 may be used without a disk, and the ice cream or other confection will be impaled on the prong '27 and held against slipping by the shoulder 26. A disk:

28 may be used however, and has an el0ngated slot 29 which receives the prong 27.

The disk abuts against the shoulder 26 which forms a positive support therefor. In Figure 5 I have shown the paddle 24 as slightly dished to provide a resilient frictional contact of the prong with the disk, but a flat paddle may beused ifdesired.

In the form shown in Figures 8, 9 and 10 the paddle 30 is provided with two notches at its end forming a central reduced paddle end or prong 31 with shoulders 32 at each side .iQ paced 'a substantial distance from the end addition to the central shoulder 37.

thereof and spaced from the end of the prong.

The paddle may be used without a disk, but a disk 33 is preferably employed, having a slot 34 to receive the prong 31. The shoulders 32 support the disk, or the ice cream if no disk is used. The paddle may be dished, as shown, or it may be fiat.

In the form shown in Figures 11, 1 2 and 13 I provide'a central notch 35 forming two prongs 36 and a central shoulder 37. A disk 38 is provided with spaced openings 39 to receive the prongs 36. The shoulder 37 supports the disk, or if no disk is used, supports the ice cream or other confection against slipping. The paddle may be dished to put tension upon the disk, or it may be flat.

. In Figure 14, in addition to the centralnotch 35 andpr0ngs 36 I provide additional notches at the edges of the paddle to produce shoulders 40 at the sides of the prongs, in The ice cream or-confection41 may be impaled directly on the prongs as shown in Figure 14 or the disk 38 may be used. The paddle may be dished or flat.

In Figures 5, 8, 11 and 14 the'shoulders are shown as square. For convenience of manufacture, the shoulders may be roundedas seen at 41 in Figures 15 and 17 or they may be inclinedas seen at 42 in Figure 16.

In place of the type of slot shown at 39 in Figure 13, the disk may be provided with slots 43 as shown in Figure 18 which are spaced apart at the center of the disk but which extend to its periphery. The corners of the diskat the ends of the slots may be rounded as seen. at 44. s 7

While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention it is to be understood that various changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted towithout departing from the spirit of my invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.

Having thus described my invention what -I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:

I 1. A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin paddle, said paddle being dished to provide a substantially concavo-convex cross section, and, a

guard having a slot to frictionally receive said paddle. I

2. A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin'paddle, said paddle being notched at one end to provide a prong and a shoulder spaced from the end of the prong, and a flexible guard having an opening to frictionally engage the prong, said shoulder serving to support the guard.

3; A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin paddle, said paddlebeing notched adjacent one end to provide a reduced prong and a shoulder tion, and a guard having a slot to frictionally I receive said prong.

'4.

A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin paddle having a substantially centrally arranged longitudinal slot at one end forming a pair of spaced prongs connected by a shoulder spaced a substantial distance from the ends of the prongs, said paddle being substantially concavo-convex in cross section, and a guard having a pair of spaced openings to frictionally receive the prongs. i 6. A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin paddle having a substantially centrally arranged longitudinal slot H at one end forming a pair of spaced prongs connected by a shoulder spaced a substantial distance from the ends of the prongs, said paddle being notchedat its edges to provide shoulders between the prongs and the edges of the paddle, and a guard having a pair of spaced openings to frictionally receive the prongs.

7. A device of the character described comprising a relatively wide thin paddle having a substantially centrally arranged longitudinal slot at one end forming a pair of spaced prongs connected by a shoulder spaced a substantial distance from the ends of the prongs, said paddle being notched at its edges to provide shoulders between the prongs and the edges of the paddle, said paddle being" slightly concavo-convex in cross section, and a guard having a pair of spaced openings to frictionally receive the prongs.

8. A device of the character described comprising a relatively Wide thin paddle having its edges notched at one end to provide a centrally arranged prong having shoulders at each side-thereof, said shoulders being spaced a substantial distance from the end of the prong, and a guard having an opening to frictionally receive said prong.
