The present invention relates to new and use

which is adapted to be screwed on the neck 6 of

embodying a novel construction, combination
of the bottle may be conveniently dispensed in
predetermined, uniform quantities in a sanitary
10 and generally satisfactory manner.
Another very important object of the invention
is to provide, in a dispensing device of the type
comprising a measuring container adapted to be

Fixed in the top 3 of the measuring container
I and extending through said top is a pouring 10
spout 9. Also ?xed in the top 3 and depending
mounted on a bottle, a novel construction and
mounted in the sleeve l0 and has mounted on
its upper end a head l3. Mounted on the lower 15
end of the stem I2 is a valve l4 which is en
gageable with the bottom 4 in a manner to close
15 arrangement of valves for controlling the ?lling
and emptying of said container.
Other objects of the invention are to provide
a dispensing device of the character described
which will be comparatively simple in construc
20 tion, strong, durable, highly efficient and reliable
in use, compact, attractive in appearance and
which may be manufactured at low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become
25 apparent from a study of the following speci?ca
tion, taken in connection with the accompany
ing drawings wherein like characters of refer
ence designate corresponding parts throughout
the several views, and wherein:
Figure l is a view in side elevation of an em
bodiment of the invention, showing same mount
ed on a bottle.
Figure 2 is a view in vertical section through
the device, showing the position of the valves
35 when the measuring container is being ?lled from
the bottle.
Figure 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 but showing
the position of the valves when the measuring
container is being emptied.
Figure 4 is a view in vertical section through
the device with the transparent container
Figure 5 is a view in horizontal section, taken
substantially on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
Figure 6 is a view partially in side elevation
and partially in vertical section, showing the
device adapted for insertion in the unthreaded
neck of a bottle.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
50 be seen that the embodiment of the invention
which has been illustrated comprises a measur
ing container which is designated generally by
the reference numeral l.
The container I in
' cludes a body 2 of suitable transparent material,
55 preferably glass, of substantially the shape
therefrom is a sleeve l0 having formed therein a
longitudinal slot II.
A stem I2 is slidably
the intake opening 8, said valve l4 having
mounted therein a face 15 of suitable material,
such as cork.
Projecting from the stem I2 at an intermedi
ate point is an arm 16 having mounted thereon
a valve H which is engageable with the inner
end of the pouring spout 9 for closing said pour
ing spout. Mounted in the valve ll is a face 25
l8 of suitable resilient material, preferably cork.
A coil spring I9 yieldingly maintains the stem l2
in raised position, in which position the valve
I4 is open and the valve i1 is closed. Fixed in
the top 3 is a vent tube 20 which extends to a
point adjacent the bottom 4 of the container I.
It will be observed that the pouring spout 9 and
the vent tube 20 are located on opposite side
portions of the top 3.
In Fig. 6 of the drawings, the device is shown 35
mounted on a bottle 2| having an unthreaded
neck 22. The reference numeral 23 designates
generally an adapter in the form of a plug en
gageable in the bottle neck 22 and comprising a
tube 24 having a head 25 on one end screwed
into the sleeve 5. A tapered cork sleeve 26 is
provided on the tube 24 for engagement in the
bottle neck 22.
It is thought that the operation of the device
will be readily apparent from a consideration of 45
the foregoing. To dispense the contents of the
bottle, said bottle is tipped to the position shown
in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawings for ?lling the
container l, the valve [4 being in open position
and the pouring spout 9 being closed by the 50
valve 11. Thestem I2 is then actuated against
the tension of the spring IQ for closing the
opening 8 and for opening the spout 9 thereby
emptying the container 1. The arm l6, travel
ling in the slot ll of the sleeve l0, maintains the 56
valve H in proper position for engagement with
the inner end oi the pouring spout 9. Air enters
the container I through the vent 20 to facilitate
the discharge of the liquid from said container.
When the container I has been thus emptied it
may be quickly filled again by simply releasing
the top having a longitudinal slot therein, a stem
slidably mounted in the sleeve, an arm mounted
on said stem and operable in the slot, and valves
on said arm andv on one end of the stem for al
the stem l 2 and permitting the spring II to func
ternately closing the openings in the top and
the bottom 0! the container.
This operation may be repeated as many
times as desired.
When the device is not in use
10 the pouring spout 9 is normally closed by the
valve II. The bottom I is so formed that all of
the liquid in the container I will drain back into
the bottle when said bottle is placed in an up
right position. The construction and arrange
15 ment is such that the parts may be readily dis
assembled or taken apart when desired, as for
cleaning. If desired, the device may be incor
porated in the bottle or other container when it
is made. '

with the present invention will be readily under
