UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
Application filed January 27, 1923. Serial No. 615,405.
This invention relates to bottle constructions, and aims to provide a novel'lorm of bottle especially designed for containing cl'lervescing or charged liquids.
The primary object of the invention to provide a bottle wherein the stopper will be held to its seat by the pressure of the liquid contained in the bottle.
A further object of the invention is to provide means for holding the stopper from its seat while the liquid is being poured therefrom.
lVith the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring to the drawing Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a bottle constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical. sectional view through the upper portion of the body.
Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view through the neck of the bottle.
Figure at is a sectional view taken on line 4t4 of Figure 1.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the reference character 5 designates the body portion of the bottle, and the reference character 6 designates the neck portion thereof, the bottle being however constructed of glass or other suitable material.
Depressions 7 are formed in the body portion of the bottle at a point adjacent to the base of the neck which depressions provide a pair of ribs 8 adapted to restrict the base of the neck of the bottle and provide a support for the ball valve indicated at 9 when the bottle has been emptied of its contents.
As shown, the neck of the bottle is enlarged at its base as at 10 and formed with curved walls 11 conforming to the curvature of the ball valve 9 to support the ball valve and guide the same to a position between the lugs 12 formed within the neck. These lugs are formed during the moulding of the bottle proper and are arranged in spaced rela tion with each other presenting shoulders to be engaged by the ball valve to hold. the ball valve and prevent the same from being torced into engagement with the valve seat l3, which is in the form of a washer positioned at the mouth of the bottle neck.
From the foregoing it will be seen that when a bottle of this type has been filled with efl'ervescing or charged liquids, the gas pressure within the bottle will act to force the ball valve 9 to its seat or to a. position as indicated by Figure 2 of the drawing.
If it is desired to remove the contents of the bottle, it is only necessary to insert a rod or stick in the mouth of the bottle and force the valve 9 to a position behind the lugs 12 whereupon the ball is held out of Ti engagement with the valve seat and the liquid may be poured therefrom.
The ball valve 9 may now be moved from its position behind the lugs 12 by tilting the bottle neck, whereupon the within the body will again force the ball valve 9 to its seat to close the bottle.
lVhat is claimed is:-
In a bottle construction a body portion including a neck and mouth, depressions formed eXteriorly of the body portion at a point adjacent to the base of the neck to provide a pair of internal ribs. said neck having depressions formed exterior-1y thereof defining a pair of internal lugs substantiallv triangular in cross section, said lugs being substantially wide adjacent to the base of the neck and tapered. to a line point towards the mouth of the bottle, said bottle neck being curved from points adjacent to the pair of ribs, to points on line with the bases of the lugs defining pockets, and a ball valve adapted to be held between the lugs to permit pouring of material from the bottle, and said ball valve adapted to be guided to its position between the lugs by the cur vature of the bottle neck.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing); as our own, we have hereto aliixed our signatures.
