Foster, Austin, Tex. Application April 1, 1937, Serial No. 134,366 '6 Claims. (Cl. 221----98)v The present invention relates to a dispenser ‘' therein, Figs. 3 and 5, to iorma grill for the pur pose of excluding entry of large lumps of sugar or for sugar and other granular and powdered ma \ terials ‘ and it consists of a container having , other material to be dispensed. A closure I5 is‘ rotatably mounted internally on a shaft I6 ar . 5 rial. An object of the invention is to provide a ranged in the bowl- l0 horizontally relative to Fig. 5 ‘ 1. This mounting may comprise one or more cover for the sugar outlet which also acts to op- ‘ erate the‘ measuring device for the de?nite quan spokes l1 and an operating lever I8 is also se tity of sugar. This cover and measuring device . cured to the shaft It. An operating rod I9 ex tends through the inner length of the tube 8 and means for dispensing a de?nite quantity of mate are weight operated. 10 - 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, V ‘15 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 20 measuring device, ' 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. spout l2 and is embedded in a closure cover 20 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 opening l3 to prevent'the entry of any sugar in the container. Thus the sugar which was in the when sugar is to be placed in the dispenser, the tube 8, Fig. 2 and out through the pouring spout 35 ‘ 35 cover 8 is removed and sugar poured through the opening 5. The top member 2 is also provided with a further opening having an inwardly di-_ rected guide ?ange or projection ‘I, also integral with the cover. 40 is‘ secured to the lever l8. The rod l9 extends 10 through the tube 8 near the pouring end of the 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 60 and 2 the’ angular position of the tube 8 corre sponds with the guide ?ange ‘I by contacting therewith to maintain the tube ?rmly in the cover bowl H) in Fig. 1 now flows or slides down the as a measured quantity of sugar. 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. I claim as my invention: 40 i. A dispenser for sugar and other materials comprising a container, a cover for the container having an opening therein, a tube in the con tainer projecting at its outer end through the opening in the cover to form a pouring spout and *5 at the other. end having an enlarged bowl, said bowl having an opening therein through which the sugar may pass into the bowl, a closure for the vbowl, a closure cover for the pouring spout, and means interconnecting the closure for the 50 bowl and the closure cover for the pouring spout whereby both may operate simultaneously and alternately to open and closed positions. I and container I. ‘ 2. A dispenser according to claim 1, in which YIhe spherical measuring bowl [0 is;.provided'g “ 88 with an opening i8 havinga number of rods l4’ the closure cover for the pouring spout is weight- 55 2 2,128,933 ed whereby when the dispenser is tilted, the clo sure cover will not only uncover the pouring spout, but will also close the opening in the bowl by means of the closure therefor and the interconnecting means. 3.
