View page
US Patent:
56558058, Aug 12, 1997
Filed:
Jul 10, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/677919
Inventors:
Joseph G. Shaddy - Omaha NE
International Classification:
A47J 4507
B65D 2310
US Classification:
294 312
Abstract:
A cup holder includes a ring of thermally insulative material having an inner surface and an outer surface, with a strip of resilient compressible material affixed to the inner surface circumferentially around the entire extent thereof. A handle is mounted on the outer surface of the ring for supporting the ring and a cup held in the ring. The ring inner surface is generally cylindrical in shape, while the outer surface has an arcuate shape forming a convex shape from the upper to the lower edge of ring. The handle has a vertically oriented elongated oval-shaped aperture therethrough to receive at least two fingers of a human hand. A projection depends from the lower end of the handle loop adjacent a distal side to form a concave finger grip between the projection and a lower edge of the loop. A pair of depressions are formed in a forward portion of the outer surface of the ring and extend circumferentially, to receive the palmar side of the first and second fingers of the hand. A third depression diametric the first pair of depressions receives the palmar surface of the thumb, so that the ring may be gripped and supported by the hand.
