Va., a corporation of Delaware
Application May 5, 1933, Serial No. 669,52’!
16 Claims. ’ (Cl. 221-19)
This invention relates to containers, and more
particularly to containers provided with pouring
spouts or the like. It relates still more particu
larly to sheet metal containers for liquids which
5 are adapted to be poured therefrom. which con
tainers are provided with closure or sealing
means.

I preferably utilize a spout member cooperat
ing with a discharge opening in a container and
10 adapted to assume a plurality of positions with
respect thereto. I prefer to seal the discharge
opening by a cap ?tted over the spout member.
The spout member may be arranged to assume a
top 3 at H. The upstanding portion III is ex
ternally threaded at I2 for the reception of a
cap, as will presently be described. The portion
III has a discharge opening therethrough, such
opening being substantially circular and being
bounded by a wall l3 whichcomprises an upper
portion H, a lower portion l5 and an ‘interme
diate seat portion IS. The opening is preferably _
eccentric to the portion 10 and has its center
positioned generally toward the periphery of 10V
the container from the center of such portion.
A spout‘ member I1 is provided. which member
has a substantially annular connecting portion l8
15 outwardly and so as to prevent application of the
and a laterally extending delivery portion IS.
The spout member I1 is adapted to be manually

plied over it.
frictionally held within the wall portion l4. As
the wall portion I4 and the portion l8 of the
spout member are both of circular cross-section,
the spout member may be inserted in any de 20
sired angular position and may, if the friction is
not too great, be manually rotated to position
the delivery portion l9- in any desired direction.
Ordinarily if it is desired to rotate the spout
member it should ?rst be lifted at least part way
out of the discharge opening so as to reduce the
pouring position in which it extends generally
Other details, objects and advantages of the
20 invention will become apparent as the following
description of a present preferred embodiment
thereof ‘proceeds.
In the accompanying drawing I have shown a
present preferred embodiment of the invention,

but with the cap removed and the spout mem

In Figures 3 and 4 the spout member is shown
in delivery'or pouring position, that is to say,
Figure 4 is a vertical cross-sectional view
35 taken on the line IV-IV of Figure 3; and

.
Referring more particularly to» the drawing, a
container 2 is provided, which container is pref
40 erably of sheet metal and may be of any pre
ferred or well known construction. A top 3 is
connected with the body of the container 2 at 4.
The connection effected at 4 is preferably more
or less permanent in character as it is not con
45 templated that occasion will arise in use of the
container for removal of the entire top 3.
The top 3 has communicating. depressed por
tions 5 and 6 interconnecting at '_l. The de
pressed portion 6 is open outwardly to permit
50 draining. ,A handle member 3 is pivotally con
nected with-the top 3 in any suitable manner, as
by a fastening member 9. The construction thus
far described may be of any desired type and no
claim is made to such features broadly.
An upstanding portion I0 is connected with the
with the delivery portion l9 extending generally
outwardly or toward the periphery of the con
tainer so that upon tilting of the container the
contents will be poured out over the lip 2|. In
this position the delivery portion ill of the spout
member - l1 intersects or extends across the
threaded portion I2 of the upstanding portion [0,
thus making it impossible to screw on the cap.
The spout member may, however, be rotated, or 40
atleast partially lifted and turned, through an
angle of approximately 180° until it assumes the
position indicated by dotted lines at 22 in Fig
ures 1 and 3. In this position all of the spout
member is within the con?nes of the threads l2
so that a cap 23 may be placed over the spout
member and screwed down onto the container.
The cap 23 preferably has a lower portion 24
of relatively large diameter which is provided
with threads 25 which cooperate with the threads 50
l2. Above the portion 24 the cap has an inward
ly extending seat portion 26, and above such
seat portion a dome portion 21 of reduced diam- -
eter. The dome portion provides space for the
spout member, and the seat portion 26'is adapt

ed to be provided with a gasket or washer which,
when the cap is screwed down, comes into sealing
engagement with the top of the upstanding por
tion Ill of the container. Therefore the con
tainer can be closed and sealed about the spout
sition with said delivery portion turned generally
inwardly of the container, and a cap for the
container applicable only when the spout mem
ber is in the second mentioned position and clos

When the container is initially ?lled it may be
provided with a sealing member II adapted to
fit within the wall portion I! of the discharge
opening and having an outwardly extending an
nular ?ange 29 adapted to seat on the seat por

into place under considerable pressure so as not

the first time the sealing member 28 is punc
tured and may be removed if desired, the spout
member l'l being first lifted out to give access
to the sealing member. Also a depression 30 in
