Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented N ov. 26, 1912.

Application filed December 3, 1910. Sera1 No. 595,337.

I'o all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, TWILLIAM C. PARsEILs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ellenville, county of Ulster, and State of New York, have invented a new novelty Toy Bottle, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to a novelty bottle constructed in the form of common liquid receptacles used in commercial trades, but in reality said bottles are constructed as a delusive collapsible bodied air vessel, part of whose body is flexible, thereby at will it is possible to create an air pressure through the throat of the bottle, and at the releasing of pressure from the body of the bottle creating a vacuum until the form is at rest.

The object of my invention is to produce a delusive novelty bottle made to resemble regular trade bott-les in appearance but in the grasping hold of the said novelty the body being constructed of light, elastic texture, the body caves in, thus lessening the air space within, which naturally creates air pressure up through the neck of bottle, thus forcing up through the neck of bottle minature objects such as an imitation snake, thus producing a startling amusing novelty, as the snake protrudes its head by pressure and disappears at the releasing of the hold on the bottle.

The herein novelty bottle comprises the following parts: The main form is constructed of firm material with the major part of body cut away leaving the body open through from side to side, this space is covered with windows of thin elastic fabric, preferably rubber, which is attached to the edges of the main body. The neck opening extends from the top of the bottle to the body chamber, thus forming the only vent after the body is covered.

My invention will be hereinafter more particularly described in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part of my application for a patent in which- Figure l represents a front elevation, Fig. 2 represents a sectional elevation, Fig. 3 represents a sectional plan, Fig. 4 represents a tube, and Fig. 5 represents an imita-- tion snake.

In the drawing letters refer to the different parts, letter A (Fig. 2) represents an extensible imitation snake attached at the base of tube B (Fig. 2), which tube is also shown in Fig. et.

C represents a slender spindle fastened inside of the snakes head and extending' down through the body to the floor of the bottle, this spindle standing loosely on the bottom rises with the elongation of the snake and also keeps the snake in the position to inflate readily, letter D (Fig. l) represents the sheet of flexible covering extending over either side of the bottle; letter E represents a patch of firm material fastened to the covering D to give firmness to the touch in raising the bottle; letter F (Fig. l) represents the solid bottle form.A

It will be seen that by having the imitation snake attached to the base of the tube B (Fig. 2) the same tube fitting as a cork at the throat of the bottle as shown in Fig. 2; that by squeezing the sides of bottle a trifle the only chance for the relief of pressure is through the body of snake. Thus the snake elongates and the head protrudes from the neck of the bottle; but when released the vacuum causes it to fiy back from sight but held in the tube by the spindle C (Fig. 2.)

Having described my invention as well as the use and operation of the same, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. In a device of the character described, a hollow elastic body having an opening, a tubular stopper arranged within the opening, an extensible object closing the lower end of the tube, and a rod normally resting on the bottom of the body and extending into the object and being carried thereby.

2. In a device of the character described, a hollow elastic body having an opening, a tubular stopper arranged within the opening, of an extensible object secured at its lower end to the lower end of the tubular stopper and closing the latter, and a rod arranged within the body and normally resting on the bottom thereof and extending into the tubular stopper and object and being secured to and carried by the upper end portion of the object.

3. In a device of the character described, a hollow body having rigid and elastic wall portions and being provided with an opening, a tubular stopper arranged within the opening and being completely inclosed by the body, an extensible tubular object closed at its upper portion and being secured at its lower portion to the lower portion of the tubular stopper, a rod secured to the upper cation in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses this second day of December 1910.




closed end of the object and extending down through the same and the body and normally resting on the bottom of the latter, said rod and obj ect being insertible into the body with the tubular stopper.

In testimony whereof, I, WILLIAM C. PAR- sELLS, have signed my name to this specifi- Copies of this patent may be obtained for ve. cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents. Washington, D. C.
