This leaves a commaximum quantity of liquid and a minimum i330 quantity of air and at the same time function as described.

What I claim is 1. A liquid container, comprising a body having a discharge opening near the bottom, a neck surrounding said discharge opening and extending at an angle to the horizontal, a depending flange at the upper part of the discharge opening acting to partly close said opening, a rotatable hollow stopper positioned in said neck and formed with a discharge aperture in the bottom thereof, said aperture being located at one side of said bottom, so that when the stopper is inonev position liquid may flow into and through the aperture and when moved to the opposite position will be covered by said flange, so that no liquid can flow from said container, the upper part of said stopper acting as a dipping compartment when said aperture in said bottom is in alignment with said opening.

2. A liquid container, comprising a glass body having a base and side walls tapering to a point, one of said side walls having a discharge opening adjacent said base, a neck surrounding said discharge opening and extending at an angle to the bottom of said body, and a rotatable hollow stopper being open at one end and positioned in said neck, said stopper having a bottom plate at the opposite end formed with an aperture near one edge whereby part of the stopper will act as a dipping compartmentwhen said aperture is in alignment with said discharge opening.

3. A liquid container comprising a body having a discharge opening adjacent the bottom in one of the side walls thereof, a tubular neck extending from the wall having said opening, said neck surrounding said opening, said wall being formed with a flange partly closing said opening, said neck extending at an angle to the horizontal so that the outer end of the neck will be at a higher level than the inner end, and a hollow stopper rotatably mounted in said neck, said stopper being open at one end and at the opposite end having a bottom plate formed'with an aperture therein and appreciably smaller than said discharge opening and located near the periphery of said bottom plate, said stop per conforming to the shape of said neck whereby the part of the stopper adjacent said aperture acts as adipping compartment when the aperture in the stopper is in registry with said opening, said stopper being capable of rotation so that when the aperturein said bottom plate is moved to a point opposite said flange, said opening will be closed.
