To all whom it may concern: l
Be it known that I, JOHN W. BRICKER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Wilmerding, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Im rovements in Glass- Holders, of which t e following is ,a full,
clear, and exact description.
i *crevices for the collection o a sanitary tween the handle and ring be This invention is an 1m roved glass holder for use in dispensing so a water and other beverages,A and has for an object the provision of a holder of simple and durable con# struction having substantiall no corners or dirt, whereby the holder may be easily cleaned and kept in condition. The holder is also comparatively light and is adapted to hold glasses of varying diametersv and shapes.V

, F' ure 1 1s a perspective view of the referre embodiment of my improved hol er and'Fig. 2 is an edge view of the handle of the holder.
In the constructionoi my invention I employ a ring-base 10, preferably of, pressed steel, having an external bead or iiange 11 surrounding its lower edge, whereby the stability of the holder is insured. Also formed int al with the base 10 is an internal rib 12 w 'ch is depressed slightly below the top edge of the base and forms a seat for the glass, from which it cannot be displaced in a lateral direction.
Soldered, riveted or otherwise secured to handle 13, which is preferyin, t ickness in the irection of its length bent np'n itself in the manner shown, the
thickest portion of said strilubeing located at the inside of the holder, w 'ch makes the handle comparatively strong without -undul ad to its we ht.
ttacllifto the inslde of the handle 13 a short distance above and concentric to the base is a split-ring 14z the connection be madeV at an intermediate point of the ring s length, to provide spring-arms for embracing the glass at each nde. The bore of this ring prefer' v.ably flares slightly outwardly to conform to shape of the glass, and thering tapers the Bpecieation o! Lettera Patent. application mea iugm s1, 1901. um No. 390,912,

making the extremities thereof quite thin.
It 1s a arent .from the construction shown and described that the holder is very simple and' durable and presents substantially no corners or crevices for the collection and accumulation of dirt, thus making it easy to be kept clean and in a sanitary condition.
In the fore oing description andin the claims annexed I use the term lass in its broadest possible sense, by which. mean that and adapted in thickness from itscenter to each en d,
for receptacles made of g ass, but. also. for other like receptaclesof aly suitable material.
Having Vthus describe my invention, -I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. A glass holder comprising a ring-base of pressed steel having an integral flange' exteriorly surrounding its bottom edge, and an internal rib arranged slightl below the top of the base to rovlde a seat or the glass a hanldle attache to said base, composed o a strip of metal bent upon itself and tapering 1n thickness in a longitudinal direction with the thickest portion Athereof arranged at the inside of the holder, and a split-rin 'tapering in thickness in the direction of its ength from each side of its center, and diate its length to said handle above the said base and concentric thereto toprovide springarms for embracing the glass.
v2. A glass holder comprising a base a handle attached to said base, composed oi a strip of metal bent uon itself and tapering in irection of its length with the thickened portion thereof arranged at the inside of the holder, and a split-rin attached to the Avhandle, having an outwarl -flaring bore and tapering in thickness in' t e direction of its len th at each side of its center. 3. A glass older com rising a rin base low its to edge, on which rovi ed 'th an external flange surrounding its bottom edge, a strip of sheet metal bent Lupen itself with its free ends securedto the base, providing a handle therefor, and a split ring rigidly attached to the handle intermediate its length providinggaterallty-extending arms for em racing the secured mterme- 4.
