EDWARD EMIL LEDEELE, or` AUSTIN, TEXAS, AssIGNoE or oNEnALE To I. STEIN a co., or sAME PLACE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent :No7 353,147, dated November 23, 1886.
Application iiled April 30,1886.
To all whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, EDWARD EMIL LEDEELE,
a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Austin, in the county of Travis and State of'lexas, have invented ce1-tain new and useful Improvements in Dinner-Buckets; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to Io which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specifica tion, and in wliioh Figure l is a perspective View of my improved dinner-bucket. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of the saine. -Figx 3 is a perspective view of the carrying-frame; and Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the portions forming the handle, showing them separated.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
My invention has relation to that class of dinnervbuckets in which a number of vessels are placed one above the other, resting with ianges at the bottom of one vessel over the edges of the vessel below, and in which the said vessels are held together by means of a frame consisting of uprights bearing against the sides of the vessels and secured together at the upper ends, forming ahandle; and it con- Sists inthe improved construction and combination of parts ofthe same, as hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the accon'ipanying drawings, the letters A indicate the vessels, which are cylindrical4 and provided at the bottoms with flanges B, curved slightly outward and downward and fitting over the upper edges of thesides of the vessel below, the vessels being placed one 4o above the other, and the upper vessel is pro vided with a cover, C, having ilanges D,simi lar to the flanges of the vessels.
The lower ends, E, of two long bails, F, are bent inward and are pivoted in sleeves or bearings G, formed at the diainetrically-opposite edges of a square plate, H, and the upper doubled portions of these bails are bent slightly toward each other, as shown at Ithe portions below the bent ends forming up- 5o rights J, which bear against the sides of the Serial No. 20,T5S. (No model.)
vessels, and the bars K, formed at the upper ends of the bails, are of the same width as the sleeves in which the lower ends of the bails are pivoted. One of these bars has the portions L of the inclined ends of the bails bent upward or outward near the bars, and the other bar has the inner end of a curved plate,
M, pivoted upon it, with a sleeve, N, formed by the inner end of the plate, the remainder of the plate being curved around so as to form 6o a curved flange, O.
Vhen the two bails are placed at the sides of the pile of vessels placed one above the other, the lower vessel resting upon the square plate, the outwardly-bent end of the one bail may be inserted between the inclined portions of the opposite bail, placing the bar of the bail parallel to the bar having the sleeve, and the curved flange of the sleeve may, by turning the sleeve upon the bar, engage the bar 7o of the opposite bail and draw the said bar within it, uniting the bars and holding the upper ends of the bails together, forming a handle for the supporting-frame formed by the two bails and the plate. It will thus be seen that the vessels may be held supported one above the other by the uprights of the bails `without needing any ears or loops at their sides for uprights or straps to4 pass through, and the flanges at the bottoms of the 8o vessels will prevent any of the contents vfrom splashing out of the vessels or any impurities, fluid or solid, from entering the vessels from the outside.
The upper ends of the bails may be easily S5 united or separated by simply turning the sleeve having the curved dange, and the curved flange will form a round handle, by which the entire device may be carried.
Having thus described my invention, yI claim 9o base plate having sleeves upon two of its opposite edges,two reotangulanshapedbails secured at one end in said sleeves, the upper ends of each of said hails being bent inward or toward each other, the upper end of one of said bails being shorter than the other and bent slightly upward, and means for securing the upper ends of said bails together.
3. In a dinner-bucket, the combination of a base-plate having sleeves upon two of its opposite Sides7 rectangular-shaped bails secured at their lower ends in said sleeves and havingtheir upper ends bent inward, the upper end of one ofsaid bails being shorter than the other,
and a plate secured to the longer of said hails I5 my own I have hereunto affixed my signature 2o in presence of two witnesses.
