UNITED STATES OSCAR DULAC, 0F WOONSOCKET. RHODE ISLAND.
Application filed February 21, 1920.
To all i /tom it may cancer-n:
Be it known that I, )scan Dunno, a sub ject of Great Britain, residing at loonsocket, in the county of Providence and State of Rhode Island, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in NursingBottle Holders. of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in nursing bottle holders and has for its primary object to provide a holder of this character constructed from a strand of wire twisted to conform to a shape suitable to support the conventional type of bottle and having means forming a part thereof. whereby the same may be suspended from the side of a cradle. bed. or chair. so that the nipple of the bottle will be in convenient reach of the infant.
A further object of the invention lies in the simple and economical manner in which the holder is constructed producing a device of the above mentioned character which may be placed on the market at a minimum cost.
. ther objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed. to designate like parts throughout the same.
Figure l is a perspective view of the holder showing one method of construction;
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary plan view showing the formation of the side supporting members, and
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a modified form of my invention.
In the drawings, the numeral 5 designates a single strand of wire of suitable gage, bent intermediate its ends and curved forming a loop 6 which is bent at a substantial right angle thereto extending upwardly in a v tical position. The wires from the loop 6 are twisted for a substantial distance, as at 7. forming a section of the reinforced main body portion 8. At the end of the section the wires are then curved outwardly and upwardly as at 9, "For a distance equal to the height of the loop 6. Small loops 10 are then formed, and the wires brought downwardly along side of the member 9. and inwardly as at 11, thus forming the vertically extending side supporting members 12.

Serial No. 360,272.
The twisting of the wires is then continued from the side members forming the second section 12 of the main body portion which as a whole is slightly shorter than the length of a nursing bottle. The wires at the tree terminal of the body portion are curved outwardly and upwardly. as at 13, to provide a substantial rectangular shaped loop 14. The upper sides of the loop 14 are inclined toward each other terminating in the downwardly curved twisted portion 15 from which extend the spaced correspolulingly U shaped hooks 16 providing means whereby the holder may be attached to the side of a cradle. bed. or the like. suspending the nursing bottle in a convenient position for the infant.
This preferred form of my invention is constructed from a single strand of wire and in use the nursing bottle may be placed through the loop 14 and between the side supporting arms 12, so that the neck of the bottle slightly projects beyond the loop 6.
The modified form of my invention shown in Fig. is constructed in a somewhat similar manner to the form described in the foregoing but is not constructed from a single strand of wire. The main body portion of the holder is formed from a strand of wire 17 bent intermediate its length and curved to form the loop 18 which is bent substantially at a right angle thereto so as to extend upwardly in a vertical position. The wires are then twisted as at 19 for a substantial distance terminating in the outwardly curved vertical side supports 20. The wires are then bent at right angles as at 21, forming the horizontal side bars 22'. These side bars at spaced intervals are provided with the semi-circular shaped supporting members 23 which extend therebetween and conform to the shape of the side supports 20. The free ends of the horizontal bars 22 are bent upwardly at right angles as at 24, and at a substantial distance therefrom are inclined toward each other terminating in the downwardly curved twisted portion 25 from which extends the spaced correspondingly U shaped books 26 by which the holder is attached to its support. As is obvious the construction of the modified form will afford a more staple support for the nursing bottle. inasmuch as a greater number of side supporting members are provided.
