1_ Claim.
My invention relates to improvements in port
able liquor dispensers, and it consists of the com
binations, constructions \and arrangements here
inafter described and claimed.
An object of myinvention is to provide a port
able liquor dispenser designed especially for the
glove compartment in the instrument board of
an automobile. The device is portable so that
it can be readily inserted and removed from the
10 compartment.
However, it is proposed to place
' the device in the compartment, and then secure
it in position against removal. The devicecar
. ries a tray which is removably secured in the de
vice, and this tray in turn carries glasses and
15 bottles of liquor.
I prefer to line the interior of the device with
sheet metal in order make it resemble a bar,
and also for sanitary purposes. The tray has
openings therein for receiving bottles of liquor
20 and also has openings for holding glasses. In
the large device the openings for the glasses are
two sizes so that large and small glasses can
be carried by the tray.‘
A catch is used for preventing the accidental
25 removal of the tray and this catch may be freed
when it is desired to entirely remove the tray
from the device. The device is extremely sim
ple in construction, and is durable and e?lcient
for the purpose intended.
Other objects and advantages will appear in
the following speci?cation, and the novel fea—
tures of the device will be particularly pointed
out in the appended claim.
My invention is illustrated in the accompany
35 ing drawings forming a part of this application,
in which

board showing the glove compartment, and in

Figure 8 is a plan view of another modi?ed
form of the invention; and
Figure 9 is a section along the' line 9-5 of
‘Figure 8.
In carrying out my invention I provide 9. cas
(Cl. 224-29)
ing I having a bottom 2, side walls 3 and 4, and
a rear wall 5.
The interior of the casing l is
lined with sheet metal indicated at 6, in Figure
4. This sheet metal may be provided with a
polished surface so as to enhance the appearance 5
of the device. Also the sheet metal will make
the device more sanitary and permits it to be
readily cleaned.
The side walls 3 and 4 carry channels 1 and
8, and these channels slidably receive a tray 9. 10
The front edge of the tray has a channel It, and
this channel cooperates with the channels ‘I and
8 to provide a frame around three sides of the»
tray when the tray is disposed in the casing.
The tray has two elongated openings or slots 15
II and I 2 for receiving bottles of liquor indi
cated generally at I 3 and I4. Napkins l5 and
ii are disposed around the bottles l3 and I4
in the manner shown in Figure 3, and this pre
vents the bottles from contacting with the bot- 20
tom 2 of the casing, and with the side edges of
the slots II and I 2. In this way breakage of th
bottles is reduced to a minimum.
Figures 2 and 4 show how the bottles have
their neck portions ll resting on the tray 9. The 25
bottles are of such a length and are received in
the slots in such a manner that they are pre
vented from dropping out from the slots even
though the tray is entirely removed from the
The bottles can be removed from the 30
slots when pouring the contents into the glasses.
Figures 2 and 3 show also the tray 9 as being
provided with a row of small openings l8, and
a row of large openings I9.
I have shown four _
of each. Figure 3 shows small glasses 20 re- 35
ceived in the openings l8, and large glasses 2|
received in the large openings l9.
Referring to Figure 1 it will be seen that the
glove compartment 22 is closed by a hinged door
23 in the instrument board 24. The position of 40
the casing l is indicated by dotted lines. In
Figure 41 show a simple means for securing the
casing I in the compartment. The compart
ments are lined with felt and the casing is made
large enough to be snugly received‘ in the com- 45
partment. In order to anchor the casing, I pro
vide a screw 25, see Figure 4, which has a bifur
cated end 25 that straddles the upper edge of
the rear wall 5. Thls'screw is received in a cou
pling 21, and a second screw 28 is also received
in the coupling, and has a pointed end 29 that ‘
is designed to engage with the top wall 30 in
the compartment 22. It will be seen that a
mere rotation of the sleeve 21 in 'the right di
rection will elongate the anchoring device and 55
drive the pointed end 29 against the top wall
30 and thus secure the casing I in place.
In Figures 2 and 5 I show a spring-pressed
catch 3! that is rotatably mounted on a pin 32
the same, corresponding ‘reference numerals are
applied to the drawings.
In the form of the device shown in Figures 8
and 9, the tray area is the same as that shown
carried by the side wall 4. The catch bears
against the top of the channel 8. A clip 33 is
carried by the tray 3, and has a portion 34 riding
on the top of the channel 8. When the tray is
moved outwardly the clip is carried thereby and
in Figure 6, except that the movement of the tray
the portion 34 strikes the trigger or catch 3i,
The form of the device shown in Figures 8 and 9 10
is designed to be placed in the glove compartment
of a Lafayette. Nash, Studebaker or Reo. This
form of the device as well as the form shown in
and prevents the entire removal of the tray from
the casing.
11 it is desired to entirely remove
the tray from the casing it is merely necessary
to depress the handle 35 of the catch and lift the
portion 36 above the channel 8, and this will
free the portion 34 so that the tray 9 can be en
tirely removed.
in the tray 4| for receiving the bottle, and has
a single row of openings 42 for receiving glasses.
Figures 6 and '7 can be anchored in place by the
same anchoring means shown in Figure 4. Since 15
the structural parts are the same as that shown
in Figures 2 and 6, corresponding reference
The device shown in Figures 1 to 5 inclusive is
of the large type, and is designed to be placed in
20 the glove compartments 22 which are relatively
large. For example, this device is designed to ?t
the glove compartment of a Buick, Cadillac,
Chrysler, Essex, Graham-Paige, Hudson, Hupmo
bile, La Salle and Reo. In Figures 6 to 9 inclusive
25 I show modi?ed forms of the device which are
designed to ?t glove compartments in other makes
of cars.
For example, in Figures 6 and '7, I show a de
vice designed to be received in the glove compart
30. ment of an Auburn, small Buick, Chrysler, Chev
rolet, De Soto, Ford, Graham-Paige, Oldsmobile,
Lincoln, Plymouth, Packard, and Pontiac. In
this form of the device the structure is identical
to that already described except that the tray 31
is smaller than the tray 9, and is provided with
only one slot 38 for receiving one bottle, and with
only one row of openings 39 for receiving
small glasses 20. The case in this form of
device is not as deep as the form already
scribed, but inasmuch as the structural parts
is in a different direction when removing it from
the casing. This form also has a single slot 40
numerals will be given,
While I have shown only the preferred forms 01'
my invention, it should be understood that vari
ous changes or modi?cations may be made within
the scope of the appended claim without depart
ing from the spirit of the invention.
I claim:
The combination with a compartment closed 25
on top and bottom and on all sides with the ex
ception of the front side, a door normally closing
the front side of the compartment, of a casing
removably disposed in the compartment, means
for securing the casing within the compartment,
said casing having an open front and top, a tray
'slidably carried by the casing and being remov
able therefrom through the front of the casing
when the door is open, and means limiting the
outward movement of the tray against accidental
entire withdrawal from the casing, said means
adapted to be manually actuated for permitting
the entire withdrawal of the tray from the cas
