Upon op serted in the neck of a bottle to take the place of posite sides the wing 8 is provided with recesses Ct the ordinary stopper and provided with means 9 within which may be displayed any embossed 5 whereby the contents of the bottle may be poured decoration or advertisement as indicated at H) out when the bottle is tilted. or, as shown in Fig. 3, disks Il may be ?tted in The object of the present invention is to provide the recesses 9 displaying any advertisement or such a pouring stopper in which the main body ornamental feature. 10 portion is composed of a molded and hardened The entire body portion as just described, with 10 plastic material such as Bakelite or other similar the exception of the bushing 6, is formed as one material, and to permanently provide the plastic homogeneous integral molded plastic structure. body portion with the usual metallic pouring and The stopper is provided with any usual form of vent tubes secured in proper relation to each other metallic pouring tube l2 preferably curved at its ' _in the body portion by molding the body portion outer end, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and long 15 about the assembled pouring and vent tubes. enough to extend entirely through the opening A further object is to provide such a stopper in the tube _4 and to project slightly from the with a cork or other yielding bushing by means of which it may be temporarily ?tted into the open end of the bottle neck after the usual cork or stopper has been removed. . rear end thereof if desired as shown at l3. Also > there is provided a metallic vent tube I4 which is arranged parallel to the pouring tube l2 and is 20 open at both ends to admit air into the bottle, A further object is to provide such‘ a pouring ‘thus permitting the liquid to pour out of the bottle stopper with a radially extending wing, by pouring tube l2. While the inner end of the means of which it may be turned in inserting it tube l4 projects some distance beyond the inner and removing it from the neck of the bottle and end l3 of the tube l2, the outer end of the tube 25 to which any suitable advertising device or oma M will not project to any extent above the en ' mentation may be a?ixed. larged portion 1 of the body portion. To the above ends the present invention con sists of the bottle stopper which will be herein after described and claimed. The bottle stopper is shown in the accompanying drawing in which— Fig. 1 shows in longitudinal section taken on a line cutting the vertical axis and passing through the radial wing, a portion of the bottle only; Fig. 2 shows the pouring stopper. in side eleva tion; Fig. 3 shows a sectional view taken on the line 3—3 in Fig. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows on that line. 40 > Similar reference characters will be employed to designate corresponding parts. The bottle stopper consists of a homogeneous body portion I made of a hardened molded plastic material such as Bakelite or a similar material. The body portion I comprises a cap 2 provided upon its under surface at or near its periphery with a ?ange 3. A central open tubular extension 4 projects rearwardly from the under surface of the cap 2 and forms with the ?ange 3 a channel or seat 5 into which the upper end of a cork or The assembled pouring tube and vent tube are ?rmly secured in the plastic body portion by molding the body portion around the tubes, thus the tubes will be ?rmly ?xed in position without the necessity of employing metallic washers or other devices in maintaining the assemblage. In operation the pouring stopper is placed in the open end of the bottle neck as shown in Fig. 1, with the vent tube at one side of the vertical axis of the pouring tube, so that when the bottle is tipped, as shown in Fig. 1, the liquid contained therein may be poured out through the tube l2 while the vent tube permits the entrance of air above the level of the liquid. Preferably the forward end of the pouring tube I! will be provided with a disk-like valve I5 piv oted at l6 which when the bottle is tipped, as shown in Fig. 1, will automatically swing open permitting the liquid to flow out, and when the device is held upright as shown in Fig. 2, the valve l5 will automatically close. I claim: 1. A pouring stopper for bottles, comprising a body portion formed integrally of a molded and other yielding bushing 6 which surrounds the tube 4 is secured, as clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing. Preferably the bushing B will be co-ex hardened plastic material, said body portion hav tensive in length with the tube 4 or that portion of the tube 4 which extends below the cap 2. depending ?ange and a centrally disposed open tube extending below and above said cap with a ing a cap provided at or near its periphery with a 35 40 45 50 2 spouse groove or seat between said tube and ?ange upon the under surface of the cap, metallic pouring hardened plastic material, said body portion hav and vent tubes secured in said plastic body por tion and extending below and above said cap and held in place therein by the molding oi’ the body portion thereon, and a yielding bushing surround ing the tube of the body portion below the cap and having its upper end fitted in the groove or tending below and above the cap. pouring and vent tubes secured in the plastic body portionr said tubes being open at both ends and said body portion provided with a radially extended wing. 3.
