WILLIAM C. ANDERSON, OF LANSING, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN OUT GLASS COM- PANY, OF LANSING, MICHIGAN, A CORPORATION OF MICHIGAN.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM C. ANDER- SON, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Lansing, in the county of Ingham and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dishes, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
The invention consists of a dish shown in this instance as formed of glass, but not necessarily so, and provided with a main uninterruptedly extending compartment adapted to receive articles of considerable length, such as celery, and with one or more minor compartments adjoining the main compartment for the reception of relishes, such as olives and the like. A
It further consists in the peculiar arrangement and combination of the parts, as will be more fully hereinafter set forth.
In the drawings,Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a dish embodying my invention; and Fig. 2 is a central cross-section therethrough.
The dish illustrated is comparatively shallow, comprising a bottom A and an inclosing wall B bulged or flared outwardly at its sides at C and D, as illustrated in Fig. 1, the flared portions projecting each a con iderable dis tance beyond the main wall for a purpose hereinafter set forth. WVithin the dish, and preferably formed integral with the body thereof, are the spaced partitions E and F extending across the fluted or flared portions of the sides, and forming in connection with Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 396,028.
the latter the compartments H and I. The partitions are curved inwardly, as shown, in a direction opposite to the curve of the flaring portion, but are spaced at such distance apart as to leave an unrestricted opening between the end portion of the dish proper, forming a main longitudinally-extending compartment J. As thus formed, the dish is provided with a main section in which celery or articles of similar character may be placed, while upon opposite sides of the main section are the complementary compartments of considerably lesser size adapted to contain relishes of different kinds.
What I claim as my invention is,
A deep di h of oblong configuration and having rounded ends, the side walls thereof having their opposite central portions each extended outwardly in a semicircular curve beyond the straight line of the upper edge of the side wall, vertical partitions each extending between the points of juncture of one of said semicircular wall portions with the straight wall portion to form two side compartments, and curved inwardly towards each other whereby the main longitudinal compartment of the dish is restricted in width, said dish being approximately semicircular in lateral cross-section at its central portion.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
WILLIAM C. ANDERSON.
