This invention relates to receptacles, and is on line 5_5, Fig. l, detailing the connection to

ing an automobile. The old fashioned water can
or bucket for ñlling radiators is ungainly, since it
is of irregular outline and awkward shape, and
presents unsightly projections.
It is the object of the present invention to pro
vide a water bucket or pail which is so fabricated
as to provide a well rounded shape and neat
appearance without less of serviceability. For
this purpose, parts of an entirely new and im
proved form are provided, and are assembled in a
highly novel manner. The present invention is
not directed to the ornamental appearance but
20 pertains to the structural arrangement, making
possible an ornamental appearance.
It is also the fact that equipment of this char
acter, that is, metal receptacles, receives a great
deal of hard usage and careless treatment in serv
25 ice. Accordingly, it must be quite durable and
must be fabricated and assembled in a manner
precluding breakage at the joints such as would
cause leakage. It is, accordingly, another object
of this invention to provide an improved water
30 pail or bucket which is formed of relatively few
parts, which parts are joined in a manner resist
ing breakage at the joints and lending greater
rigidity to the bucket. Additionally, Ythe fabrica
tion is such as to enable production of the buck
35 ets at very low cost. This saving not only eX
tends to the initial formation of the parts but to
the assembly operations as well.
It is a further object of this invention to pro
'I‘he present concept results from the deter
mination that the water buckets of the past were 5
too cumbersome and awkward, and these faults
made it' difficult to handle the buckets in` the
operation of servicing the car. Thel invention,
one embodiment of which is herein disclosed,
resides in the provision- of a» bucket formed of 10
pressed steel parts to provide a gracefully shaped
receptacle and one which is easily assembled,
water-tight, and durable. To this end, pressed
steel halves are joined along a central vertical
These halves include in each case a por
tion of the spout and body of the receptacle, and
thus eliminate the necessity for a separate spout
element and add to the grace of the product.
Furthermore, supplemental metal parts provide
an improved base for the receptacle, and means 20
for pouring therefrom as well as means for han- -
dling the receptacle for the operation of pouring.
Referring to the drawing, the pressed steel
halves or shells, indicated at I0, are duplicates.
Each half includes a portion II forming half of
the body and a portion I2 forming half of the
spout. Marginal flanges I3 extend continuously
around the edges of the shells with the exception
of the spout opening. These flanges abut, with
the exception of the filling opening, when the
shells are placed together for forming the vertical
central joint heretofore discussed. Appropriate
means is employed for fastening the parts thus
formed together, the most adequate means being
