ROSALIE MILLER, OF NElV YORK, Y.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 462,361, dated November 3, 1891.
Application filed July 8. 1891. Serial No. 398,863 (No model.)
To otZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, ROSALIE MILLER, a resident of New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented an Improved Preserve-Jar Lifter. of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a perspective view of my improved lifter, showing the same in position ready to receive the preserve-jar. Fig. 2 is a side view of the same, showing it folded for storage or shipment.
This invention relates to improvements in jar-lifters; and it consists int-he new combination of parts constituting such a lifter, hereinafter more fully specified, and pointed out in the claim.
In the drawings, the letter H represents a lower platform of circular form. I prefer to make this lower platform of wire and to construct it of an outer wire ring braced by innor cross-pieces I) b. This lower platform H is intended to support the bottom of the jar to be lifted. At the edges of this platform are projecting eyes ffff". Into these eyes are hooked the lower ends of the wire handles or uprights K K-that is to say, the ends of the wire upright K are hooked into the eyes 7"f and the ends of the wire upright K are hooked into the eyesf f. At a height somewhat below the top of the jar to be supported each of the uprights K K is formed into eyes a a a ct. Through these four eyes is passed a ring E. hen the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 1, they are ready to receive a preserve-jar, which rests on the platform H and passes through the ring E, the upper ends of the handles or uprights K K constituting means by which the jar can be easily lifted out of or lowered into the vessel within which the jar is to be heated. After the jar has been removed from the lifter the latter can be folded into a flat structure, as indicated in Fig. 2, the uprights K K folding one on top of the other, which is permitted by their hinges ff f" f, while the ring E also folds flat on the uprights, which is permitted by the eyes a a a d.
hat I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The combination of the platform H, having eyes f f f f, with the uprights K K, whose lower ends are hinged to the said eyes, the said uprights having at a distance above the platform H eyes a a a" a, and with the ring E, which is passed through the said eyes a we" a, substantially as and for the purpose herein shown and described.
