JACOB BONSHIRE, OF SHARPSBURG, ASSIGNOR TO ADAMS & (30., OF PITTSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 261,131, dated July 18, 1882. Application filed June 5,1882. (No model.)
To all whom "it may concern:
Be it known that I, JACOB BONSHIRE, of Sharpshurg, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvementin Jelly-Glasses; andI do herebydeclare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference beinghad to theaccompanyiu g drawings,forming a part of this specification, in which- Figure l is a perspective View of my improved jelly-tumbler. Fig. 2 is a like view of A the tumbler and cap. Fig. 3 is a like view of the tumbler with another form of cap, and Fig. 4 is a plan view of the tumbler shown in Fig. 3.
Like letters of reference indicate like parts in the several figures.
The jellyglass at is pressed in a mold, having the names of the jellies which may be placed therein upon that part of the mold which forms the top a, or the flange or bead d, near the upper end of the tumbler, so that the names shall be formed in or upon the upper end of the jelly-glass, as is clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 2, or on the flange, as is clearly shown in Figs. 3 and 4. Thus I obtain an imperishable label and index, formed in, inseparable from, and simultaneously with the tumbler, and which is therefore not open to the objections to former labels, which were either separate from the vessel or were formed on the cover.
In Fig. 2 I show a glass cap or cover, I), having a clear panel, 0, in its flange b, of sufficient size to show one of the names on the flange or on the upper end of the tumbler a. The rest of the flange b is obscured, either by the fluting, as in this instance, or by frosting, an interposed paper gasket, or otherwise, as may be desired.
In Fig.3 is shown another form ofcap. Here the cap b is made of glass or sheet metal, and its flange b is recessed or cut away, as at c, to show the label, and the index is impressed in or upon the head or flange d, so that the cutaway section 0 shows the name plainly, without taking 011' any considerable portion of the flange. In this case, however, the index may, if desired, be formed on the body of the tumbler, as in Figs. 1 and 2, and the recess 0 be made deep enough to show the label.
- In using the jellyglass the cap is placed thereon with the clear segment a or the cutaway segment c over the name which shows the kind of jelly contained in the tumbler.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
A jelly-tumbler having names upon its surface, in combination with a cover provided with means for covering thenames, and for exposing them singly to the sight, substantially as and for thepurposes described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 29th day of May, A. D. 1882.
