This invention relates to a" measuring device,
and has for its object to provide, in a manner
as hereinafter set forth, a device of such class to
be attached to a bottle containing a liquid for
5 measuring the required amount of the'contents
thereof to be used in a mixed drink.
'
A further object of the invention is'to provide,
in a manner ashereinafter set forth, a measur
inner end portion ll, an intermediate portion l2
of uniform diameter and an outer end portion l3
of uniform diameter and of greater diameter
than portion l2. The Junction of the portions
l2, it provide the inner face of body "I with an
annular shoulder II which provides a seat for a
purpose to be referred to. The portion ll of the ’
inner face of body I0 is to bear against breast 8.
The portion l2 of the inner face of body I! is to
encompass and bear against neck 5 and the por-v 10

beequipped with one that would hold two ounces,
and a coca cola bottle probably should measure 16
three ounces, that it to say, each of the bottles
should be equipped with a measuring device suit
able for the amounts to be ordinarily drawn from
the bottle.
What I claim is:

The outer end of spring 31 bears against the in

In operation, the device is connected to the in said chamber for engaging said seats, an in
open neck of the bottle. The latter is then in

chamber 21 past the valve 36. When the desired
amount of liquid is supplied to chamber, pressure
is then exerted on the button-like piece 38 mov

is seated. At this juncture both valves are seated
and the liquid supplied to chamber 21 held there

'} valve 35,‘ permitting the liquid to be discharged
from chamber 21 through the spout provided by
the portion l3 into a receptacle.
The collar 33 prevents the separation of valve
36 from stem 38. It is to be understood that
70 there may be substituted for the boss 3i a collar
attached to stem 38 and of the same form as
collar 33.
The valve 35 is an outlet valve and
the valve 36 an intake valve for chamber 21.
