UNITED STATES Patented November 22, 1904.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 775,716, dated November 22, 1904.

Application filed February 3, 1904. Serial No. 191,824. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ARRA H. WILLIAMS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga, State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Jelly-Strainers; 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 relates to strainers for use in making jelly, wine, soup, and other commodities, theohject of the invention being to provide a utensil which may be used in the place of the ordinary jelly-bag for straining the juice in the process of jelly-making.

A further object of the invention is to provide aconstruction which will be cheap, simple, and durable.

In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in both views, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the utensil. Fig. 2 is a section taken vertically through the utensil in the plane of the handle.

Referring' now to the drawings, the present utensil comprises an exterior frameincluding a series of vertically-spaced annular bands or rings 5, which are rigidly connected by means of a wire 6, which extends in arched shape over the uppermost ring with the sides thereof attached to each ring at diametrically opposite points thereof and the ends of the wire being taken diametrically across beneath the lowermost ring and mutually connected. .A wire 7 is secured diametrically across the bottom of the lowermost ring at right angles with the lowermost wire, the rings being preferably of wire, although they may be of sheet metal, if desired.

With the construction above described there is snugly fitted a cylindrical liningI 8, consisting'of a wire screen of fine mesh, this lining covering not onlyY the inner faces of the sides of the frame, but also the bottom thereof, so that any materialpoured into the top of the lining can pass therefrom only through the interstices thereof.

The material to be strained is poured into the lining 8 while the utensil is held by the handle, the strained liquid passing through the lining and thence between the members of the outer frame, as will be understood.

What is claimed is- A strainer consisting of. a frame formed of a vertical series of parallel spaced rings, a wire arched above the uppermost ring and diametrically thereof, the sides of said wire extending downwardly of the series of rings and attached to each ring at diametrically opposite points thereof, the end portions of said wires extending inwardly and diametrically of the bottom ring of the series, a second wire secured diametrically of the bottom ring and upon which the extremities of the first wire are united, and a cylindrical foraminous lining fitted within the frame and in contact with the rings and the wires that lie diametrically of the bottom ring.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
