allow drawing of the liquor content therefrom by a syphon action.

SYIIION LIQUOR FLASK This invention relates generally to liquor flasks.

A principal object of the present invention is to provide a liquor flask which will permit drinking therefrom in a concealed manner while in public so as to not be socially in error.

Another object is to provide a drinking flask from which liquor can be imbibed without the necessity of tilting the flask to a person's lip whereby observers would readily recognize that a person is drinking.

Another object is to provide a drinking flask which incorporates a syphon hose so that a person may draw liquor from the flask into his mouth while the flask is positioned away from the drinkers lips. n

Another object is to provide a syphon liquor flask which may be positioned either at a higher elevation or lower elevation respective to a drinkers lips.

Other objects are to provide a syphon liquor flask which is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.

These and other objects will be readily evident upon a study of the following specification and the accompanying drawing wherein:

FIG. 1 is a side cross-sectional view of one form of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a similar view of a modified form thereof;

FIG. 3 is a similar view of yet another modified form thereof.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the reference numeral represents a syphon liquor flask according to the present invention wherein there is shown in FIG. 1, a flask 11 for containing liquor .12, the flask having an externally threaded neck l3 at its upper end, the neck having an opening I4 therethrough. Aninternally threaded cap 15 is removably secured thereto for refilling purpose, the cap having integral downward extending tube I6 which reaches to the bottom within the flask. An integral external tube I7 is secured at one end to the cap, the opposite end having a nipple 1,8 with opening 19 therethrough. A replacable cap 20 may be fitted over the nipple to close the same when not in use.

In operative use, a person merely draws on the nipple and by a syphon action thus drinks liquor from the bottle.

in FIG. 2, a modified flask 21 has a vertical central divider partition 22 so to form two compartments 23 within the flask so to hold two different liquors or mixable beverages. A filler cap 24 on the flask bottom to each compartment allows refilling the flask. A tube 25 extends into each compartment 23, the tubes extending outwardly therefrom and being enjoined at their outer ends to a T-fitting 26 from which a hose 27 extends to the nipple 18. A manually closable valve 28 in each tube allows control of the relative'quantity of each liquor to form a mixture to be dispensed from the nipple.

In FIG. 3, a further modified flask 29 includes a threadingly attached cap 30; the cap having a tube 3] threadingly secured thereto and extending downwardly into the flask, the tube having spaced-apart openings 32. A hose 33 is slidable vertically within the tube, the hose having a side opening 34 which can be selectively aligned with any of the openings 32 of the tube. The hose could be marked with graduations for proper alignment with the openin s. In operative use. this structure will allow only a set quantity of liquor to be drawn from the flask. When, for example, as shown, the hose is in the position indicated in FIG. 4, when only a quantity of liquor may be drawn off down'to the indication line 33. To draw another measure, the hose is lowered into the tube until opening 34 is aligned with the next lower tube opening 32.

The hose has a threaded fitting 35 at its opposite end for securement to thread 36 of the cap when the hose is retracted and not in use.

Iclaim: 5

I. A syphon liquor flask comprising a flask having an externally threaded neck at its upper end with an opening therethrough including an internally threaded cap mounted on said neck, said cap having a hole therethrough in alignment with and smaller than the said openin in combination with a tube mounted axially in the said ole extending axially through the opening tothe bottom of the flask and including a flexible hose attached externally to the cap in axial communication with the hole and said tube wherein the tube is threadedly mounted in the cap opening and includes lateral openings at predetermined elevations in the flask and wherein the hose is slidably fitted in said tube, and has an outer end external of said cap, including a fitting mounted at said outer end, said fitting having external threads adapted to be threadedly attached in the cap hole and an outer tubular hose adapted to receive a nipple.
