Title:
OFFERTORY BOX
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2000316708
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To increase the effect of the worship by a worshiper, by installing a bell in a position where reverberation sounds of a hollow body container are generated, thereby allowing a coin fed and dropped from a feeding port to collide against the bell and producing sounds.

The container 1 having a cylindrical or square hollow body 2 made of metal is used and a cap 3 disposed atop this container is provided with one piece of the feeding port 4. The bell 5 is formed below the hollow body 2 by disposing the opening end edges of hollow hemispherical bodies consisting of metallic sheets so as to face each other from the right and left by providing these edges with a slight spacing 11, inserting a shaft 6 into the head apex of the right and left hollow hemispherical bodies and fixing the right and left ends of this shaft 6 to the lower external side of the container 1. The worshiper, thus, feeds the coins into the feed port 4 of the cap 3, causing the coins to collide against the bell 5 and to resonate vibration sounds. The worshiper's eardrums are vibrated through the spacing 11 and the feeding port 4 by these resonance sounds so that the worshiper is satisfied.
