SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 592,490, dated October 26, 1897.
pp a n fi September 25, 1896- Serial No. 606,980. (N0 model.)
To ctZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, J OHAN P. FANGEL, a citizen of the United States,resid ing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in SodaWVater Cans; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention has reference to a novel construction in a can or pitcher; and it consists in the features of construction hereinafter described and specifically claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a top plan view.
Referring to said drawings, 1 indicates the body of a can or vessel, and 2 the handle, constructed in the usual manner. Situated within said vessel is an upright partition 3, that extends between the handle and the spout, thereby dividing the can into two separate compartments. The spout is. also provided with two passages 4, which lead, respectively, to the two compartments in the manner shown. It is preferable to have an overhanging ledge 5at the forward portion of the top of the vessel closing about half of the top thereof to prevent the liquid from flowing over the upper edge. A cover 6 is provided to close the semicircular open portion which fits therein in the usual manner.
It will be seen from the foregoing description that I provide a vessel into which two entirely different liquids may be placed, so that when poured out into a glass they will be instantly com mingled, and, further, by
closing one of the openings the contents of one chamber only will run out.
A vessel constructed in this manner can be used in this manner, but is designed especially for what might be termed soda waterthat is to say, in each of these separate chambers or receptacles certain fluids can be placed, which when commingled produce an effervescent and pleasant drink. In using fluids of this kind it will be merely necessary to place in the separate compartments the different fluids, and then when it is desired to take a drink pour in the usual way into the glass, whereupon the two liquids being commingled will effervesce, as will be understood.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Let ters Patent, is-
A can or pitcher consisting of a body portion 1 having a handle, a spout at the upper end of the body portion and opposite said handle, two passages leading through said spout and communicating with the body portion of the vessel, an upright partition providing said body portion with two chambers and extending from a point between the inner ends of the passages in said spout to the opposite side of the body portion, an overhanging ledge 5 at the top of the vessel and adjacent said spout and partially closing the upper end of the vessel, and a cover 6 to fit Within the open upper end of said vessel.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
