GLASS CONTAINER. 1
Application filed January 17, 1924. Serial No. 686,707.
" and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Glass Containers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to glass containers, 0 more particularly of the bottle form, the object of the invention being to provide an improved glass container which may be sealed by various forms or sizes of caps, the container being so constructed that it is 115 usable in connection with shallow flanged caps, or deep flanged caps such as catsup caps, and caps of different diameter, and.
which container is simple in construction, readily made and inexpensive to manufacture.
In the drawings accompanying and forming a part of this specification. Fig. 1 is a side view of this improved glass container; Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view taken on 25 line 22 Fig. 1 looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on line 33 Fig. 1 looking in the direction of the arrows; and Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view of a portionof the neck of the container.
Similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views.
' Before explaining in detail the present improvement and mode of operation thereof, it is desired to have it understood that the invention is not limited to the details of construction and arrangement of parts which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, since the invention is capable of 40 other embodiments, and that the phraseology which is employed is for the purpose of description and not of limitation.
This improved. container shown in the form of a bottle comprises a body 2 tapering to the neck 3 which is provided with a shouldered and rounded lip or mouth 4, and spaced below and of larger, diameter an annular shoulder 5, and spaced below and of still larger diameter a s oulder 6 facing the shoulder 5. By means of the mouth or "lip shoulder 4 the bottle can be sealed" by the use of a shallow flanged cap such as a crimped cap and which is'usually of small diameter. By the use of the shoulder 5 the bottle may be sealed by means of a deep flanged cap, such as that shown in my contemporaneously pending allowed application, filed Jan. 17, 1924, Serial No. 686,708, and when such a cap is used the shoulder 6 acts as a fulcrum for a coin by means of. which the cap may be readily pried off. It will be observed that the several shoulders 4, 5, and 6 increase in diameter toward the body of the container, thus also permitting the use of caps of different diameters, the upper shoulder 4 permitting the use of caps of small diameter, while the shoulder 5 permits the use of caps of larger diameter as well as increased depth of flange.
It will be further observed that the shoulder 5 is formed by an annular band 5 and is connected with the shoulder d by an inwardly tapered portion 7 and a curved portion 8, while the shoulder 6 is connected with the shoulder 5by an inwardly curved portion 9 and a straight portion 10, while said shoulder 6 has a relatively fiat upper face 11 and tapers'toward the neck of the bottle as at 12, from which point the bottle flares toward the body.
Thus the structure of the neck and its shoulders is such that there are no extreme sharp edges. to be readily chipped and broken ofi.
It is to be understood that by describing infldetail herein any particular form structure or arrangement, it is not intended to limit the invention beyond the terms of the several claims-or the requirements of the prior art.
Having thus enplained the nature of my said invention and described a way of constructing and using thesame, although without attempting to set forth all of the forms in which it may be made or'all of the modes of its use,l[ claim:
' LA glass container having multiple integral glass shoulders of difierent dlameters,
one below another, each shoulder of unthreaded form-having an inwardly projecting smooth lower edge forming cap retaining means for the inwardly projecting holding portion of a cap thereby to permit the use of different kinds or depths or sizes of caps on the same container. v
2.- A glass container havingmultiple in-' tegral glass shoulders of different diameters,
one below another, each shoulder of unthreaded form having an inwardly projecting smooth lower edge forming cap retaining means for the inwardly projecting holdalso having a shoulder below said cap holding shoulders positioned and constructed to 10 act as a fulcrum to permit the use of a coin to pry ofi a cap applied to the lowermost cap holding shoulder.
