IM PROVEM ENT IN BOTTLE-'STOPPERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 221,091, dated October 28, 1879; application tiled August 1, 1879.
To all fwhom it may concern:
Be it known that I, STEPHEN S. NEWTON, of Binghamton, in the county of Broome and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Stoppers; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description ot' the invention,which will enable others skilled inthe art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompany'- ing drawings, and toletters of reference marked thereon, which form a part ot this specification.
My invention relates to bottle Stoppers which are especially adapted for use upon decanters or other bottles where a free and copious discharge of the contents of the bottle is required 5 and to this end it consists in combining with a discharging cork tube, provided at its upper end with an external screwthread, a dome-shaped cap, screw-threaded internally at its lower end, and provided withl a central plug attached to and depending from the inside of the upper end of the dome, the side walls of the dome being provided with openings for the discharge of the liquid, and with an inturning lip or flange, which clasps the tube below the screw-thread.
Figure l is a perspective view of my iinproved stopper, and Fig. 2 is a vertical central section of the same.
In the drawings, A represents an annulus ot' cork adapted to tit tightly within the neck of a bottle, and provided with a central opening, in which is secured the discharge cork tube, B. B is a ange projecting from the discharge-tube and covering the upper'end of the cork A, and also the upper end of the bottle-neck.
The discharging-tubeis expanded atits upper end into a ilange, b, which is screw-threaded The upper end of the discharging-tube is made slightly Haring, by preference, to form a seat for a closing-valve, to be described.
The hood or dome is composed of a base or ange, O, screw-threaded internally to engage with the screw-threaded flange b on the discharging-tube, aud a tubular portion, O', rising from the ilaugc and provided wlth dis-I charge openings or ports yc in the sides, as
plainly shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
c is an inwardly-projectii'ig rim or lip attached to the lower edge ot the flange C, fitting closely the outside of vthe discharging cork tube B, and engaging with the under side of the iiange b at the upper end of the discharging-tube, when the parts are in the positionindicated in Fig. 2.
D is the valve, consistingot a cylindrical plug attached to and depending from the under side of the upper end oil the hood, the lower end of the plug corresponding in form to the valve-seat, which is formed upon the inner upper end ot' the discharging cork tube B.
By an examination of Fig. 2, it will be readily seen that, when the parts are in the position there shown, the contents ot' a bott-le may pass up through the discharging tube andv out through the ports or openings in the sides ot the hood; and when it is desired to close the dischargingtube the hood can be screwed down upon the flange b, so that the valve D will be closed.
It will be readily understood that the lip c limits the upward movement ot' the hood upon the discharging-tube, and thereby prevents said hood from being accidentally removed from the discharging-tube.
In a bottle-stopper, the combination, with the discharging cork tube B, screw-threaded externally at its upper end, ot' the hood O G', provided with lateral ports c', the valve D, and the inturnin g tia-nge c, substantially as set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
