WALTER VILKINSON, OF PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND, ASSIGNOR TO THE GORHAM MANUFACTURING COMPANY, OF SAME PLACE.
COMBINED BOTTLE AND DRINKING-GLASS HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 451,097, dated April 28, 1891.
Application filed December 23, 1889. Serial No. 334,744. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, WVALTER WILKINSON, .of, the city and county of Providence, and State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and useful Combined Bottle and Drinking-Glass Holder; and I do hereby declare the following specification,taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, forming a part of the same, to be a description thereof.
This invention has for its object the holding of a bottle of wine or other beverage and one or more drinkingglasses, and the device is particularly adapted for use on shipboard, where the rolling of a steamer, yacht, or other vessel often renders it very difficult to retain bottles and glasses on the table.
The invention consists in a holder having a main clasp for holdingabottle, one or more supplemental clasps for holding a glass or glasses, and a clamp or clamping-jaw constructed to embrace and grip a rack-bar or like support for securing the holder stationary on such support or fixture, as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure 1 represents the device in perspective. Fig. 2 shows the same attached to a support with a bottle and portions of two glasses represented by dotted lines therein. Fig. 3 shows in perspective a modified form of clamp for securing the device to a support.
A is the clasp for holding the bottle, which clasp is preferably made of metal having a spring function, so that it will tightly grasp a To the clasp A one or more supplemental clasps B are attached by rivets or otherwise, to hold a drinking glass or glasses. Preferably each clasp B is com posed of a comparatively rigid arm 1), secured to the clasp A, and a spring finger or arml), secured to the arm I), so as to grasp the stem of a glass placed To the clasp A is attached a clamp therein.
or clamping-jaw O for attaching the holder to a support or fixturesuch, for instance as the rack used aboard ship in heavy Weather to retain the plates in place on the table.
.D, Fig. 2, represents a portion of such a rack. The clamp C is preferably made of spring metal of the proper stiffness, and shaped so as firmly to clamp or secure the device or holder to its support. The clamp may, however, be rigid and be provided with a clamp-screw c, Fig. 3, to fasten the device in place; and, if desired, the screw 0 may be used even when the clamp Ois made of spring metal.
By the use of the device or holder bottles and glasses may be held on the table of a vessel even in the roughest weather.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. As an improved article of manufacture, a bottle and drinking-glass holder consisting of a main clasp A, adapted to encircle and grip a bottle, and provided at its rear portion with an attached clamping-jaw O, constructed to embrace a rack-bar or similar support to secure the clasp in a stationary position there upon, and one or more laterally-projecting drinking-glasses, and clasp B, mounted on the main clasp and constructed to encircle and grip the drinking glass or glasses to sustain the same beside the suspended bottle, substantially as described.
2. The combination of the clasp A, one or more arms 19, secured thereto and having a spring-finger b, and a clamp or fastening device C for securely attaching the article to a support or fixture, substantially as set forth.
