ANDREW G-i BRANDT, 0F SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented J my 15, 1913.
Application filed July 23, 1912. Serial No. 711,118.
To all whom it mag concern Be it known that I, ANDREW G. BRANDT, citizen of the United States, residing at Scranton. in the county of Lac'kawanna and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Milk-Bot tles, of which the following is a specific-m tion.
This invention relates to sanitary milk bottles of that type adapted to be destroyed after once being used, tlmprineipal object of the invention being to provide a receptacle of this character which can be cheaply manufactured, is durable in construction, and which has means whereby the contents of the device can be viewed throughout the length of the receptacle.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings the/preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawings: Figure l is a side elevation of the bottle. Fig. 2 is a section on line AB Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section through another portion of the bottle. the section being taken on the line E-F of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an enlarged section through a portion of the bottom of the bottle. .Fig. 5 is a perspective Referring to the figures by characters of reference 1 and 2 designate inner and outer layers of stifi paper which are corrugated longitudinally and constitute the wall of the bottle, the longitudinal edges of these thicknesses being spaced apart, as shown in Fig. 3, so as to receive between them a nar"- row elongated strip 3 of celluloid or other suitable transparent material. When the parts are assembled. it will be seen that an elongated tube is formed. the transparent' strip constituting the joint whereby the tube is completed. The corrugations in the paper thicknesses 1 and 2 can be compressed so as to give the tube any desired contour, and, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the upper portion of the tube can be reduced in diameter so as to form a neck 4. This neck is reinforced by a met-a1 ring 5 which fits snugly therein and 1 and 2 and the upper end of the strip 3 properly assembled.
The bottom of the bottle is formed of*a paper disk 7 having an annular flange 8, this disk being insertible into the lower portion of the bottle and with its flange 8 extending downwardly. Thelower edge of the wall of the bottle is then folded up under the disk 7 and against the inner surface of the flange 8 after which another or lock-- ing disk formed of paper and which is shown at 9 is inserted between the upturned portions of the bottle so as to clam said portions firmly against the inner sur ace of the flange 8. This locking disk may also be provided with an annular flan e 10 whereby the clamping action of thet isk upon the upturned portion of the bottle wall is increased. After the parts have thus been assembled the bottle is dipped in paraflin or any other suitable water-proofing material, thetransparent strip 3 being kept free of .said material in any suitable manner. This water-proofing material will seal all j oints as well as prevent the fibrous material of which the bottle is made from absorbing any of thecon'tent s of the bottle.
The closure of thebottle is formed of a paper disk 11 having an annular flange 12 upstanding therefrom, this disk be ng adapted to fit tightly within the ring 5. An car 13 may be extended from the flange 12 so as to projectabove the bottle neck when the closure is in use. This car can be easily grasped so as to facilitate the-removal of of the strip and it becomes unnecessary to out an opening in the bottle to receive a transparent strip, as has been done heretofore. As the transparent strip 3 extends throughout the height of the bottle it will be seen that the contents of the bottle can be viewed readily and it thus becomes possible to determine the amount of cream inthe bottle and whether or not any sediment is contained upon the bottom of the receptacle.
What is claimed is: 1. A receptacle of the class described including inner and outer paper sheets corrugated longitudinally, an elongated transparent strip extending throughout the length of and interposed between the longi- "2. receptacle of the class described lI1-' eluding inner and outer sheets of paper, an
elongated transparent strip constituting the 5 sole connection between opposed edges of each sheet, the longitudinal edges of said strip being interposed between the sheets and secured thereto, said strip extending throughout the length of the sheets, and a 20 bottom surrounded by said sheets and strip. In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses. v
