PLATE FOR BUTTER-DISHES.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 235,192, dated December '7, 1880.

Application filed October 15, 1880. No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, S. WM. BABBITT, of Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new Improvementin Plates for Butter-Dishes; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing and the letters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawing constitutes part of this specification, and represents a perspective sectional view.

This invention relates to an improvement in the plate which is arranged in butter-dishes and on which the butter rests, and generally provided with perforations, so that if ice be used the water produced by the ice melting may drip into the dish below the plate.

In the usual construction this plate is made from metal, and after a little use it is more or less defaced. In some cases the plate has been made from porcelain; but such plate is liable to be brokenso much so as to be impracticable.

The object of this invention is to construct a plate which shall be strong and durable and without liability to defacement by use; and it consists in a plate of glass or other suitable similar non-metallicmaterial inclosed within a metallic band or rim, and with perforations or openings for the purpose of draining the plate.

A is the plate, in shape corresponding to the disk, and around its edge is a metal band or rim, B, closed over and upon the edge of the plate, as at a, so as to firmly secure the plate and rim together.

Preferably the edge of the plate is chamfered, as at d, and close to the plate, through the rim, several perforations, 6, (more or less in number,) are made, so as to permit the water from the plate to drip or drain through the said perforations and fall into the dish below butotherprovisionsfordraining maybe madeas, for instance, notches in the edge of the glass plate.

The band or rim B may be of substantially the same shape as the rim of the usual all-metal drainer, but must be so as to set upon the rabbet of ,the dish to be supported in its proper position. This is best done by forming a shoulder on the rim, as atf.

I am aware that a glass plate has been introduced to butter-dishes within and so as to cover the metal plate; hence I do not broadly claim a non-metallic plate for butter-dishes.

I claim- 1. The herein-described butter-dish plate, consisting of the glass or non-metallic plate A, with a metallic rim around and secured to its edge, so as to permanently unite the plate and rim, and constructed so as to form a support for the plate in the dish, substantially as described.

2. The herein-described butter-dish plate, consisting of the glass or non-metallic plate A, with a metallic rim around its edge, and constructed so as to form a support for the plate in the dish, and provided with openings at the edge for draining the plate, substantially as described.

S. WM. BABBITT.
