4 Claims. (Cl. 221-98)
This invention vrelates to dispensers for use in the bottle, making it an unappetizing sight which
connection with catsup and similar products put is also unsanitary, as it attracts flies, dust and
up in bottles and/or containers.
One of the prime objects of the invention is toV
5 provide a dispensing device of neat and pleasing
design which is insertable into the bottle, and by
means of the desired amount oi the bottle con
tent can be forced onto a plate or food as de
sired and in a clean and sanitary manner.
Another object is to provide a dispensing den
vice which can -be easily and thoroughly cleaned,
which fits any standard bottle neck or opening,
and which is readily removable so that it can be
used on bottles of various kinds and sizes.
A further object is to provide a dispensing de
vice which retains the bottle content in a clean,
sanitary condition, which eliminates the usual
dispensing device, which eliminates these objec
tionable and unsanitary features, and which
when actuated, positively forces the required
volume of catsup from the bottle.
Referring now more particularly to the draw
ing, the numeral 5 indicates a conventional cat
sup bottle such as used in restaurants and hotels
in general, when originally purchased, this bottle
is provided with a cap or cork, (not shown) and
which forms a closure for the opening 6. After
the cap or cork is removed the dispensing device
dripping and congealing of the product around
is attached and remains in position until the
catsup supply is exhausted. The device is pref
erably formed of wood, but it will be understood
the bottle opening, and which is convenient and
that it can be formed of metal or any other A
easy to operate.
desired material, if desired.
A still further object is to design a dispensing
device of simple and substantial construction
which can be easily and economically manufac
tured and assembled and which, when in posi
tion excludes air, dust and other foreign matter.
With the above and other objects in view, the
present invention consists in the combination
and arrangement of parts, hereinafter more fully
described, illustrated in the accompanying draw
30 ing and more particularly pointed out in the
appended claims, it being understood that
changes may be made in the form, size, propor
tion and minor details of construction, without
departing from the spirit, or sacrificing any of
Ul the advantages of the invention.
In the drawing:
Fig'. 1 is a vertical sectional elevation of a
bottle with my dispensing -device in position
Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the bottle
tilted and the lid swung open.
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional View similar
to Fig. 1 showing an alternate form of adaptor.
Due to the nature and volume of the product,
catsup is usually placed on the table in the origi
nal bottle; it is usually provided with a screw
cap or cork closure, and when desiring to use
catsup the diner removes the cap, tilts the bottle,
and very often is forced to jar the bottle con
tents with one hand in order to force the desired
amount from the bottle. Catsup is of thick,
sticky consistency and it is used sparingly so that
one bottle lasts for a considerable period `of
other foreign matter, an-d I have therefore per~
fectecl a very simple, practical, and attractive
time, consequently, an accumulation of congealed
catsup quickly builds up around the opening of
" 20
The stoppe-r 'l is formed as clearly shown in
1 of the drawing, being cylindrical in shape,
the section 3 being reduced and shouldered as at
9 so that it readily iits the neck of a standard
bottle, said section being slightly tapered so that 25
a snug ñt is secured, reduced` sections ii! and H
are also provided adjacent the section ß and
these are also tapered in a similar manner and
are designe-d to ñt bottles of smaller size.
A centrally disposed bore or passage l2 is pro 30
vided in the stopper, and an angularly disposed
hollow spout i3 projects from the side thereof
and opens into said passage, a lid M being pro
vided on the end of said spout an-d is hingedly,
connected thereto by means of the pin I 5, as
usual, so that when the bottle is in upright posi»
tion the li-d Il! closes the spout opening. A sleeve
I6 is provided on the main body, as shown, and
is movable on the stopper so that the lower edge
rests on the end of the bottle.
A rod I1 is slidably mounted in the stopper
and a ball I8 is secured to the upper end thereof,
and this can be in the form of a ring or any
other desired handle. A piston i9 is mounted on
this rod l'l at a point intermediate its length
and a disc agitator 2i] is secured to the lower end
thereof, said piston being of a size to snugly fit
the passage I2 and this piston can also be of
any desired shape and design. A metal band 2|
is provided on the upper end of the stopper, and
reinforces the structure as Well as lending to the
artistic appearance thereof.
ln practice and when it is desired to use catsup,
the diner tilts the bottle so that catsup ñows into
the bore I2 and the rod l1 is then drawn outwardly
the piston I9 forcing the catsup in the bore out
wardly so that it discharges from the spout, the
rod is then forced inwardly, the inward travel
of said piston creating a suction, drawing any
catsup in the spout and/or bore back into the
in said stopper, a piston intermediate the length
the rod is actuated as a pump, each stroke dis
charging a certain quantity, the agitator 2E)
of the rod and normally below said bore when
the rod is at limit of its inward travel and adapt
ed to force catsup from the bottle when the rod 10
is drawn o-utwardly and suck the excess catsup
into the bottle on the return stroke, and a sleeve
adaptor adjustably mounted on said stopper.
3. A catsup >dispensing device adapted to be
inserted in the neck of a bottle and formed with
a centrally disposed bore, a discharge spout open
to said bore, a lid forming a closure for said
threads, the body of the stopper being grooved

as at 23 so that the end 24 readily remains in
From the foregoing description it will be olo
vious that I have perfected a very simple, prac
tical and economical dispensing device for dis
having an agitator on the lower end thereof, an
operating member on the upper end, a piston
mounted on the rod at a point intermediate its
length and of a diameter to ñt said bore to force
catsup through the spout on the one stroke and
draw the excess catsup on the spout inwardly on
the return stroke, and an adaptor mounted on
said stopper to form an air tight seal between the
stopper and the neck of the bottle.

stopper one end of which is formed with sec
pensing catsup and similar products.
tions of varying diameters adapted to be inserted 30
What I claim is:
1. A catsup dispensing device comprising a
stopper formed with sections of varying diam~
eters adapted to be inserted in the neck of a
bottle and comprising a stopper provided with a
in the neck of a bottle, a centrally disposed bore
in said stopper, a normally closed discharge spout
communicating with said bore, a rod recipro
eating mounted in the stopper, an agitator
The device can ‘ce readily cleaned, it is of
pleasing appearance, the agitator insures a con
stant consistency of the catsup and the device
dispenses the catsup in a much more practical,
efficient and appetizing manner than is done at
manually operable rod reciprocatingly mounted
If a considerable volume of catsup is required,
agitating the liquid in the bottle so that it freely
flows and does not congeal and thicken as usual
where no agitator is employed.
In Fig. 3 ofv the drawing I have shown a slightly
diilîerent adaptor, this comprises a resilient sleeve
22 which is rolied over in the threaded neck of
the bottle to form an airtight seal, the mate
rial readily adapts itself to the contour of the
serted in the neck of a bottle and provided with
a centrally disposed bore opening into a discharge
spout, a lid hingedly mounted on the end of said
spout and normally forming a closure for the
spout when the bottle is in upright position, a 5
centrally disposed bore, an upwardly inclined
normally closed discharge spout opening into the
mounted on the lower end thereof, an operat 35
ing member on the upperv end, a piston also
mounted on said rod and at a point intermediate
side of said bore, a rod mounted in said stopper
and passing through said bore and a piston on
40 said rod at a point intermediate its length for
alternatingly creating a pressure and a suction
in the bore.
the length thereof, and adapted when the bottle
is tilted and the rod drawn outwardly, to» force
a quantity of catsup through the spout, and draw 40
the excess catsup in said spout back into the
2. A catsup dispensing device adapted to be in
bottle on the return stroke.
