APPLICATION man APR.9, 1921.

Patented Dec. 6, 1921..




Application filed April 9,

To @ZZ wrom t may concern:

Be it rnown that l, Louis B. nwnnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at 3 Augusta rive., Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented a new and useful Bottle. of which the following is a specification.

mhis invention relates to bottles, one of its objects being' to provide a container of this character especially designed for holding perfume.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide one surface of the container with a frosted or translucent finish, the saine being intersected by crossed transparent ribs while formed on the translucent surface but litersected by the transparent ribs is the representation of a flower or other object so that the effect of a flower or the like growing upon a lattice is produced.

A further object is to provide a bottle having a transparent surface opposite to that on which the design appears so that said design can be viewed by loolring through the bottle and through the colored liquid that may be contained therein, the saine result as before explained being thus secured with the enception that the appearance is greatly enhanced by the color imparted to the design by the liquid within the bottle.

l further object is to provide a container the smooth transparent surface of which can be used as magnifying lens whereby the design upon the far wall of the container is distorted or magnified and thus rendered more apparent to the observer than would otherwise he the case.

lilith the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in t-he combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed. it being understood that, within the scope of what is claimed, changes in the precise embodiment of the invention shown can be made 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 an elevation of the bottle showingthe flat wall thereof carrying the design.

Fig. 2 is an elevation of the opposite side of the bottle and showing the transparent Specification of Letters Patent.

surface, the magnified design being seen therethrough. c

F ig. 3 is al transverse section through the bottle.

1Referring to the figures by characters of reference l designates a bottle of any desired size and proportions and one wall of the bottle has its outer surface polished and out, as shown at 2, the inner surface of this wall being preferably convened as ordinarily and as shown at 3 so that the wall thus forms aplano-convex lens. Both surfaces of this wall are transparent but all of the remaining walls of the container are preferably frosted or otherwise rendered translucent. The outer surface of the opposed wall of the bottle is formed with intersecting outstanding ribs 4i the free longitudinal edges of which are transparent while the remaining portions of the surface between these ribs are frosted. A suitable design, such as the representation of a flower, a portion of a vine, or the like, such as indicated at 5, can be formed on this frosted 0r translucent wall of the bottle, the design being intersected by the transparent ribs as shown particularly in Fig. l. Thus it will be seen that when the bottle is viewed, the light rays by passing straight through the transparent ribs l will cause said ribs to stand out clearly upon the frosted background so as to have the appearance of a lattice work behind which the figure 5 is disposed. This impression is greatly enhanced by viewing the design through the magnifying and transparent wall of the bottle. If the bott-1e is filled with a colored liquid the color of the liquid will be imparted to the design and owing to the construction and arrangement of the parts the bottle when viewed through the transparent surface 2 is rendered especially attractive. Obviously by providing the transparent ribs 4; said ribs will stand out clearly so as to present the appearance of a lattice, this result being also especially noticeable when the colored liquid contents of the bottle are seen through the transparent ribs when the wall carrying the design is nearest the observer. Thus it will be seen that the bottle is rendered especially attractive when viewed from either side, the colored ribs l standing out prominently and being shown extending across the figure 5 when the bottle is viewed as shown in Fig.

l While the said 'ribs as Well as the entire design are distorted and enlarged When viewed through the magnifying Wall of the bottle, the transparent ribs under these conditions continuing to stand out clearly. upon the background containing the figure 5.

It is to be understood that the arrangement of hars and the ligure disclosed back of the bars can he changed Without departing from the scope of the claims.

\ l. A bottle including a translucent Wall containing a design and transparent ribs extending across said wall and lntersef'stingl the design. Y

2. A bottle including a translucent Wall containing a design and transparent ribs extending across said Wall and intersecting the design, anda transparent Wall opposite the design carrying Wall through which the contents of the bottle and said design carrying Wall are visible.

3. A bottle including a translucent Wall containing a design and transparent ribs extending across said Wall and intersecting the design, said ribs adapted to be colored. by liquid contained in the bottle, thereby to stand out with increased prominence with respect to the design, and a transparent Wall opposite the design carrying Wall through Which theV contents. of the bottle and said design carrying Wall are visible, said transparent Wall constituting a plano-convex lens for magnifying the design carrying Wall.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aiixed my signature.
