3 Claims. (Cl. 222-539) This invention relates 'to a container for shipping and dispensing oil and other liquids, and has more particular reference to improvements in containers of the kind having a reversible nozzle so mounted on the body of the container. that 5 8 of a size to screw onto the neck- 6 and a larger it will be within the body for shipping purposes end portion ill of a size to have the cap 8 threaded and may be reversed to extended position for distherein.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary view of the upper portion of the container shown in Figure 1, substantially in central vertical section.
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 with the nozzle reversed so as to be in extended position for dispensing purposes.
Referring in detai1 to the drawing, the present container comprises a suitable body 5 having a the neck 6 of the body 5. The cap 8 is arranged so that its threaded rim or skirt surrounds the adjacent end of the spout or nozzle 1, and the nozzle or spout is disposed at an angle or slanted relative to the axis of the cap 8.
The invention further includes a tubular adapter having a smaller threaded end portion charge of the contents at the point desired. The nozzle I is provided at its larger or base end with an air inlet opening I3 that is located in the side of the nozzle which is uppermost during the dispensing operation. This opening facilitates entry of air into the nozzle at its inner end and into the upper portion of the body 5 so as to facilitate the flow of the contents from said body 5 and through said nozzle I. The length of the nozzle 1 and the degree of slant given to the same are only restricted by the depth of the body and the diameter thereof, respectively.
From the foregoing description, it is believed that the construction and operation, as well as the advantages of the present invention, will be readily understood and appreciated by those skilled in the art. It will be apparent that the device may be conveniently and economically manufactured and assembled and is convenient to use and highly efficient in use.
What I claim is:
l. A shipping and dispensing container comprising a body having a projecting threaded neck, a tapered nozzle, a, threaded cap having a central opening and removably threaded onto said neck with the nozzle projecting into the body,
' said nozzle having its larger end rigidly attached to the cap in communication with said opening and arranged so that the skirt portion of the cap surrounds the larger end portion of the nozzle, a tubular adapter having a threaded smaller opening 0! the cap and the larger end or the nozzle, the adapter being removable from the cap to permit removal of the closure disc, the nozzle being positionable in an extended position outside the body when the cap is threaded into the larger threaded end portion of the adapter and the smaller end portion of the adapter is threaded onto the neck.
2. The construction defined in claim 1, wherein the nozzle is slanted relative to the cap and extends adjacent a side and near the bottom of the body.
3. The construction defined in claim 1, wherein the nozzle is slanted relative to the cap and extends adjacent a side and near the bottom of the body. and wherein the nozzle is provided at its larger end and adj acent the cap with a transverse air inlet opening through the side thereof which is disposed uppermost when the container is used for dispensing purposes.
