ntented llov. 3,



application filed February 21, 1922. Seriatllo. 538,150.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JAMES TIBBATTS, .a citizen of the United States, residing at Jersey City, in the countyof Hudson and State New Jersey, have invented certain new i and useful Improvements inv Metallic Nurs .ng Bottles, of which the following is a specification.

T his invention relates to metallic receptacles or containers and more particularly to a novel and improved nursing bottle wherein the parts are so assembled as to permit :eady access to the interior of the bottle so that the same may be properly cleansed without the necessity of sterilization.

So far as I am aware nursing bottlesand iimilar containers have been forthe most part constructed of glass and the objection found has been that access cannot be readily had to the interior of the bottle to permit of its cleansing and the removal of the milk card and any impurities, consequently requiring sterilization of the bottle. lhe consequent breaking of the bottle during the sterilization process as well as the trouble and annoyance necessary has always been an objectionable feature-with .a glass container and of course unless the glass container is in some way protected when being used by children, they are easily broken when dropped.

My invention therefore comprises a metallic container preferably of aluminum "-vare wherein the head or cap may be removed so that access can be had to the interior of the container to permit of its roper cleansing including provision where y the cap or head may be used on a large-or small bottle as desired.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the subject matter being claimed, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion and size and minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

In the drawings, Figure l is a vertical sectional view showing the assembled bottle.

Figure 2 is a similar view showing one of the sections removed. p

Figure 3 is a detailed sectional view showing the threaded connection between the respective sections of the bottle.

Referring now to the drawings wherein served, so that the same can beremoved.

like reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, 5 designates the upper cylindrical section and 6 the lower cylindrical section of a nursing. bottle which sections are preferably constructed of metal such as aluminum ware or the like, of substantial thickness. The cap 7 or top of the receptacle is provided with a reduced neck 8 having a top flange or bead 9 for proper engaging a resilient nipple as readily understood. The extreme upper end of the section 5 is exteriorly threaded, said threads being preferably cut and gradually tapering from a pointlO through the top 11 of the said section so as to be properly engaged by the cut threads on the interior, bottom edge of the cap 7 which as shown taper downwardly from a point 12 to the bottom 13 thereof. By reason of this threaded connection which may be regarded somewhat in the nature of a pipe joint a liquid-tight container may be had when the cap 7 is properly threaded on the extension 5 of the container. The lower section 6 is similar in construction to the upper section 5 so that the cap 7 may be threaded on either of the same when a small sized bottle is desired. 9f course the lower edge of the cap 7 and the section 5 somewhat overlap the sidewall of the container when the same is assembled, it being of course understood that the drawing shows this as somewhat exaggerated in that the bottle as actually constructed provides for a smooth finish at the connection between the respective sections. The bottom of the bottle is provided with a metallic cover or stopper 15 having a head 16 thereon which receives the lower end 17 of the lower section 6, said stopper being exterior-1y threaded as at 18 for proper engagement with the threaded bottom 19 of the lower section.

The stopper of course is of such a width as to be threaded to the lower end 20 of the section 6 when a small sized bottle such as shown in Figure 2 is desired. I

It will be readily seen that in the construction of a container of this type, access may be had to each and every part when the same is disassembled and since the cap 7 and bottom or plug 16 may be removed, the shell consisting of the top and bottom sections 5, 6 respectively can be easily cleansed in any manner and any incrustation or dirt ob- In the accompanying drawin I have illustrated my invention embodied in one Hill form by way of example, and which construction has been found to answer to a satisfactory degree the results to be ob.- tained. It would be manifest, however that other forms of embodiment may be adopted, and that the construction may be variously changed and modified by the skilled mechanic without departing from the limits of the invention Further it will be under- -stood that the invention is not limited to any particular form of construction in the parts, except in so far as such limitations are specified in the subject matter being claimed.

Having thus described my invention what I I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is 1. A nursing bottle of the class described comprising a cylindrical shell having ex-l terior and interior cut threads on the top an exteriorly threaded beaded removable substantially flat bottom for said shell, said sections of the shell slightly overlapping when connected, and a cap or head having interior reversely out, tapering'threads for engaging the top threads of either of said sections of the shell.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
