Lene/rs Patent No, 83,341, dated ocmw 2o, isos.

INIPROVED POCKET DRINKING-'CUR The Schedule referred to in these Lettere Patent and making part of the same.

i -mh To all whom it may concern: Y

Be it known that I, JosE'PHUs SMITH TowNnRow,

A of the town of Moline, in the county of Rock Island,

and State of Illinois, have invented a certain new and useful Pocket Drinking-Cup or Goblet; and I do hereby to the letters of reference marked thereon, like letters indicating like parts wherever they occur. 4

To enable others skilled in the art to construct and use my invention, I will proceed to describe it.

In the accompanying drawings- Figure 1 is a verticalsection of the upper part or Figure 2 is a perspective viewof the lower part or stand.

Figure 3 shows the two parts, screwed together,

forming a complete cup, ready for use.

,Figure 4 shows the same, when reversed and screwed together, for greater convenience in carrying, and the exclusion of dirt. y V K The cup 'is represented in section, and the stand in 1- perspective, in each case.

The whole is described as follows: The cup A is made of metal, or of glass, gntta-percha, or other materiel, but with a thick metallic bottom, with a screwhole, a, in the centre, into which the screw n, at top of the stand B, is fitted.

When screwed together, as shown in iig. 3, the hole is stopped water-tight, forming a perfect drinking-cup.

By reversing the position of the cup, inverting it, and screwing the parts together, as shown in iig. 4, it is pnt in a convenient portable form, and, the parts tting tightly, all dust is excluded, and the cup kept clean and fit for use.

Having thus described my invention,

A pocket-goblet, consisting of the cup A and-stemd B, constructed so that .they may be detached, and the cup connected 4tothe stand in a reversed position, substantially as herein described.

JOSEPHUS SMITH TOWNDROW.
