Nov. 18, 1930. v A.H. BASEL com: roman Filed lay 5, 1930 Patented Nov. 1.8,V 193 ARTHUR H. BASEL, oF ITHACANEBRASKA 001m POPPER Application led May 5,
This invention relates to corn poppers and the main object is to provide a simple, cheap andk durable popper of relatively large capacity.
Another object is to providea corn popper constructed in such manner that thecontents are visible during the popping operation so that the operator can prevent the corn from burning.
The foregoing and other objects together with means whereby the same may be carried into eifectvwill best be understood from the following description of a preferred embodiment of the invention taken in connection with the accompanying drawing Where- 1n:
Figure 1 is a plan View of the corn popper;
Figure 2 is a side View thereof; and.
Figure 3 is a plan View of the blank from which the popper is formed, this view being reduced in scale relative to the preceding Views.
In carrying out the invention I provide a square blank l of reticulated material such as wire mesh or screen wire, the apertures or foramens therein being of such size as to prevent the passage therethrough of popcorn in its unpopped state. In constructing the popper the blank 1 has its corner portions 2'bent upward and inward along theY lines 3, the proximate edges of these corner portions 2 being then Sewed together as shown at 4. The` arrangement is such that the blank is now formed into a hollow bag or container.
in which the corn may be placed for popping. It will be noted that a portion of the edges of two adjacentV corner portions 2 is left unsewed as shown at 5 thus leaving an opening through which access may be had to the popper for the insertion and removal of the corn.

that the popper may be made lin any desired size to pop any-desired quantity of corn at` one operation. It will be further understood that the popperwill be simple and durable and capable of being readily and conveniently cleaned after use.
While I have herein set forth'a certain preerred rembodiment of my invention it is understood that I may vary from the same in minor structural details, so as best to construct a practical devicefor the purpose intended, not departing from the spirit of the invention. and within the scope of the appended claims.` c l I claim: y
l. In a corn popper, a blank of reticulated material the corner rportions of the said blank being bent upwardly and inwardly'and sewed together along their proximate edges to form a bag, and means for inserting corn 70 l:nto the bag and removing the corn from the ag. y
2. In a corn popper, a square blank of reticulated material, the corner portions of the said blank being turned inwardly and sewed Vtogether along their proximate edges, and
a portion of the edges of two adjacent corner portions ybeing left unsewed as a `means of access to the popper.
In testimony whereof Iv affix my signature. `8o
