J. GElSLER SHIELD FOR NURSING BOTTLES Filed Oct. 22, 1925 Patented Nov. 15, 1927.



Application filed October 22, 1925. Serial No. 64,100.

This invention relates to bottle shields and more particularly to nursing bottles equipped with nipples.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a hermetically fitting conical shield having means to engage the upper portion of the bottle, enclosing the neck and mouth and also a nursing nipple disposed on the bottle mouth.

A further feature is in the provision of an impervious cap adapted to protect the nipple from insects, dust and other containinating matter, and at the same time retaln any leakage that may occur until a convenient time for their disposal.

Another aim is to produce a shield or cap capable of being easily applied or removed, and which is inexpensive to construct.

These objects are attained by the novel design and construction of parts hereafter described and shown in the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure, and in which Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a shield made in accordance with the invention, as applied.

Figure 2 is a similar View of a nursing bottle, the shield showing in section, on line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a plan view of the shield in detail.

Figure 4 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line Jr-4 of Figure 3.

The bottle shown in the drawing is of conventional type, composed of a cylindrical body 10 having raised beads or annular ridges 11 and 12 at its upper and lower ends respectively.

Below the lower bead 12 is a base portion 13 and above the upper bead 11 is a converging neck 14 terminatin in a double beaded rim 15 surrounding t e mouth.

A nursing nipple 16 of conventional type, made of rubber, is provided with a perforated spherical head 17 joined to the body by a reduced portion 18 and having a flexible rim 19 adapted to be engaged over the upper bead 15 of the bottle.

The shield or cap consists of a thin walled hollow cone 20, its upper end blending into a convex crown 21, and near its larger end is a concavo-convex annular band 22, terminating in a slightly outturned edge 23, this band being provided with slots 23 at spaced intervals to present resilient fingers adapted to spring outwardly in engaging the beads 11 or 12.

Fixed in the inner concave surface of the band 22 is a pliable lining 24 adapted, when the shield is drawn over the nipple and neck of the bottle, to engage the bottle bead 11 and adhere frictionally thereto in order to properly support the shield in the position shown.

It will be understood that the shield, while sufliciently stifi and firm for its purpose, is also snfliciently elastic to permit of its being positioned on the bottle or removed at will, the lining ring or packing 24 being conformable to the bottle bead and form an air-tight joint therewith.

W'hen not in use to protect the nipple, the shield may be applied in a reversed position to the lower bead 12, as indicated by the broken lines in Figure 1.

From the foregoing it will be seen that a neat and edective nursing bottle shield has been disclosed, but it will be understood that minor modifications in shape, size and proportions may be made within the scope and spirit of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A nursing bottle shield comprisin in combination with a bottle having a bead ed jacent its neck, a conical cap closed at its smaller end, and a hollow lined bead at its larger end adapted to engage the bead on said bottle.

2. A bottle shield comprising a hollow conical body having a closed curved top, a concavo-convex lined band on the base por tion of the body adapted to engage a bead on the bottle, and an annular lip extending below said band.

3. A bottle shield comprising a hollow conical body having a closed curved top, a slotted concavo-convex band on the base portion of the body, a pliable ring lining said band, said ring being suited to engage a bead on a bottle, and an annular extension below said band. I

In witness whereof I have afiixed my signature.
