Further objects will be apparent from the fol
lowing description taken in connection with the
accompanying drawings in which:
' Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of the sugar
dispenser,

Fig. 2 is a similar view showing thedispenser
in the act of discharging a quantity of sugar,
Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken on the
line 8-4 of Fig. 2 in the direction of the arrows,
Fig. 4 is an end view oiv the closure for the

Fig. 5 is a partial side view of the measuring
device and the pouring tube, and
Fig. 6 is a top view of the sugar dispenser.
The container I of the sugar dispenser may be
25 preferably made of glass, either clear or colored
or of any other suitable material. A cover or top
member 2 of‘ metal ?ts over the-top edge of the
container by means of the ?anges 8 and may be
held in place by a tight ?t or any other suitable
30 expedient. The top member 2 is provided with a
screw-threaded collar 4 forming an opening 5
and preferably integral with the top member 2.

for the spout. Nearthe spout end of the rod iii,
a bead 2| is provided on the rod which acts as a
limit stop for the movement of the cover 20 and 15
the closure IS in open and closed positions re
spectively thereof as shown in Fig. 2. The cover
28 comprises a weight for actuating the closure l5.
In the position of the dispenser as shown in
Fig. 1, the cover 6 may be removed to ?ll the con- 20
‘tainer I with sugar or other desired materi'al.
Thus the sugar falls as indicated by the arrow
into the bowl l8 through the opening l3 to ?ll the
bowl corresponding to a measured amount as for
instance, a quantity equivalent to a spoonful. 25
_When it is desired to pour the measured quantity
of sugar from the dispenser, that is from the
bowl l8, it is tilted from the position of Fig. 1
to that shown in Fig. 2 in which the cover 28
automatically lifts or falls off from the spout i2 30
and at the same time the closure l5, closes the
A cover 6 is screw-threaded on the collar 8, and

A tube 8 preferably tapered, extends through
the cover 2 and as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, this
tube is angularly directed relative to the sides 9
oi the, container I. The inner end of the pour
ing tube 8 has an enlarged portion or bowl I0
45 preferably in the form of a sphere which rests
or contacts with the bottom portion l l of the
_ container I. The other end of the tube projects
through the cover 2 and is slightly curved to form
a pouring spout l2. As clearly seen in Figs. 1

sponds with the guide ?ange ‘I by contacting
therewith to maintain the tube ?rmly in the cover

To obtain, a
second quantity of sugar, the dispenser is tilted
back from the position of Fig. 2 to Fig. l' and
then back to Fig. 2.
