SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 554,502, dated February 11, 1896.
' Application filed September 26, 1895. Serial No. 563,6 83. (No model.)
T0 on whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J ENNIE PHELPS BEL- DEN, acitizen of the United States, and a resident of Hinsdale, in the county of Du Page and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bake-Pans, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
This invention relates to bake-pans, such as are usually employed for baking pies and similar articles, and the object thereof is to provide an improved device of this class having a removable attachment by means of which the lower and upper crusts of a pie may be crimped and held together; and with this and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts,hereinafter described and claimed.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawings form a part, in which- Figure 1 is a plan view of my improved bake-pan; Fig. 2, a section thereof on the line 2 2, and Fig. 3 a detail section on the line 3 3.
In the practice of my invention I provide a pan A, having an annular upwardly-directed rim B, at the top of which is an annular outwardly-directed flange O. I also provide an annular cap D, having an inner downwardlydirected flange E, which is provided with vertical corrugations or grooves, and preferbly provided at its outer edge with a roll or bead F,in which is placed a wire or rod G, the object of which is to give strength, stability and form to the attachment or cap.
The upper surface of the annular cap D is provided with radial grooves H, and the operation will be readily understood from the foregoing description, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings.
The pie is placed in the pan in the usual manner and the cap or attachment D is then placed thereon, and the arrangement is such that the inwardly and downwardly directed flange E, provided with the vertical or radial corrugations, will crimp and press the upper and lower crusts together, as will be readily understood,this operation being usually done by hand, and the cap or attachment A serves to hold the upper and lower crusts together and thus prevent the loss of juice while the pie is baking.
My invention is not limited to the exact form, construction, and arrangement of parts shown and described, and I therefore reserve the right to make all such alterations therein, and modifications thereof, as fairly come within the scope of the invention.
Having fully described my invention, I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. The combination with a bake-pan, of an annular cap or attachment provided with an inwardly and downwardly directed flange, which is provided with vertical or radial corrugations, the body portion of said cap or attachment being also provided with radial corrugations or grooves, substantially as shown and described.
2. The combination with a bake-pan, of an annular cap or attachment provided with an inwardly and downwardly directed flange, which is provided with vertical or radial corrugations, the body portion of said cap or attachment being also provided with radial corrugations or grooves, and the outer edge thereof, being provided with an annular roll or bead, substantially as shown and described. In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of the subscribing witnesses, this 20th day of September, 1895.
