deviceot this character of which the body portion is constructed entirely of one piece of wire bent into the desired formation.
A further object of the invention is to so construct the device that the bottle may neither be displaced downwardly or later-- ally.
A further object of the invention is to make provision in the device for the covering of the bottle so as to protect the same from rain or the like.
With these and other objects in view, such as will appear as the description progresses, my invention comprises the combination and arrangement of parts as set forth in falling within the scope of the appended claims.
Referring to the drawing: Figure 1 is a perspective view of my device. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view.
.Reterring to the drawing wherein like parts are indicated by like characters throughout the several views :-My device comprises br'oadly a base member 1 for supporting a bottle and two arcuate arms 2 and 3 for preventing the lateral displacement of the bottle. This base is formed of a piece of wire bent into substantially circular formation. In order that the arms 2 and 3 may be formed, I have continued the ends of the wire forming-the base 1 upwardly, as at 4:, in spaced relation to form a shank portion and have bent the said wire then outwardly in a horizontal plane in arcuate formation, as at 5, and thence upwardly, as at 6, leaving a space 7 between the portions 6. The wire is then bent to form arcuate portions 8 similar to the portions 5.-
In order that thedevice may be attached to a wall or the like, I then bend the wire to form eyes 9 which are in spaced relation and continue the ,wire over one of the eyes Specification of Letters Patent.

upwardly a short distance and terminate the same, as at 10, while the other wire from the other eye is continued upwardly, as at 11, and thence bent into a looped portion 12 and downwardly, as at 13, to meet the end of the portion from the other eye. These ends are secured together by a metallic strip 1 1. The portions 11 and 13 of the wire forming a shank connection between the arms 2 and 3 and the loop 12. Pivotally mounted on the upper portion of the loop 12 is a cover plate 15 which is arranged to project over the mouth of the bottle.
In use the cover plate is swung into a ver- 'tical position and the bottle placed so as to rest upon the base 1 with the arms 2 and 3 encircling the body portion of the bottle, the cover plate 15 is then swung to a horizontal position and covers the mouth of the bottle. It may be thus seen that by securing the device to a convenient support by passing screws or the like through the eyes 9 the device may used to support a milk bottle so that the same will be held free of the ground.
I have so constructed the device that the same is formed entirely of one piece of wire bent into the desired formation and which is of such form as to insure the maintenance of the bottle in the proper position and to obviate the possibility of the displacement of the bottle therefrom. By constructing the device of one piece of wire a very inexpensive device is provided and yet one which will be of such construction as to be exceedingly eflicient in use. Furthermore a device is provided which maybe readily cleaned and thus maintained in a sanitary condition and tree from insects.
While I have illustrated and described a particular embodiment of my invention, I
have merely done so for the sake of convenience and I do not wish tobelimited to cured to the upper portion of said loop, said base, arms, shank and loop being formed of a continuous piece of wire.
2. In a milk bottle holder formed of a continuous piece of wire, a base of substantially circular formation, spaced parallel portions of Wire extending upwardly from the base, arcuate members extending at right angles to said portions, additional arcuate members spaced Vertically from the first mentioned members, said first mentioned arcuate members being connected to the last mentioned members by integral portions of the Wire, a shank formed of parallel portions of the Wire extending upwardly from said last mentioned arcuate members, eyes formed in the Wire adjacent the junction of the shank and the said arcuate members, and a loop formed integral with the shank at the upper portion thereof and of the Wire.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in the presence of two Witnesses.
