BOTTLE AND LIKE VESSEL Filed Oct. 18, 1932 INVENTOR HTTOR N E Y Patented Jan. 2, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Application October 18, 1932, Serial No. 638,423, and in Great Britain October 28, 1931 6 Claims.

This invention relates to bottles and like vessels more particularly for those having a capsule known as a crown cork which is a metallic cap fitting the beaded rim of the bottle. Where the bottle is formed of glass, it is a common eX- perience for the rim to become chipped or pulled off when withdrawing the crown cork. Even when slightly chipped, the bottles become use less owing to leakage between the crown cork and the rim of the bottle. The object of the present improvements is to provide a rim which will resist breakage and enable the bottles to be used from time to time.

In the present invention, the bottle neck is -provided with a metallic device comprising a beaded or flanged rim formed with a depending sleeve or member which is more or less incorporated in the material of the bottle neck by the glass being moulded about the same.

The invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawing in which:

Fig. l is a vertical section of a bottle neck with the improved device mounted thereon ac- V cording to one form of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective View of the device separately.

Fig. 3 is a vertical section with the bottle closed by the crown cork.

Fig. 4 shows an alternative form whereby the device has an open slotted or serrated sleeve.

Fig. 5 shows the device with an unslotted sleeve.

Figs. 6 and '7 represent modifications.

In carrying the invention into practice with reference to Figs. 1 to 3, the bottle made of glass or the like is provided about its mouth with a metallic device consisting of an annular beaded or flanged rim 1 formed with a dependent sleeve or part 2 pierced with a series of apertures 4. The device is applied to a bottle in such manner that the beaded or flanged rim 1 constitutes the rim or" the same, with the dependent sleeve or part 2 embedded in the bottle neck 3 during the moulding process of the bottle, whereby the device becomes incorporated with the ma terial around the mouth of the bottle or like vessel. The device may be set in the bottle neck, for example, by placing it in a mould and forcing the glass or other material when in a molten or plastic state about the dependent sleeve or part 2 and through the apertures 4 so that the sleeve or part is embedded in the material and a good bond is formed between the metal and the glass, with the beaded rim exposed.

The beaded or flanged rim being of metal provides an unbreakable top edge to the mouth of the bottle for holding the crown cork or other closure and will resist chipping when the closure is pressed on or wrenched off.

In Fig. 3, a crown cork 5 is shown as closur- 60. ing the bottle.

In the alternative form shown in Fig. 4, the device consists of a beaded or flanged rim 111 having an open slotted or serrated sleeve 2d for embedding in the bottle neck in a similar manner as aforesaid.

In Fig. 5, the device comprises a beaded rim 16 formed with a dependent unslotted sleeve 2e.

In the modification shown in Fig. 6, a metallic device is incorporated within the bottle neck 3, having its beaded rim 1a at the upper edge thereof and the dependent sleeve or part 2a externally of the same. Said sleeve or part 2a is provided at its lower edge with an inturned flange or projection 6 embedded in the glass for securing same thereto. The sleeve 20. may be apertured similarly to that depicted in Figs. 1 to 3, or openslotted or serrated as shown in Fig. 4, or further, unslotted as shown in Fig. 5.

Referring to the modification shown in Fig. '7, the device is incorporated in the bottle neck 3 with its beaded rim 1b disposed at the upper edge of the neck and its dependent sleeve or part 217 at the inner side thereof. The lower edge of the sleeve or part has a retaining outwardly-turned flange or projection 6b.

The beaded or flanged rims may be formed hollow as shown, or they may be solid. Said rims are disposed that they surmount the neck of the bottle and solely constitute the rim.

The lower edge of the sleeve or part 2 may be flanged, if desired.

Any particular form of sleeve may have an open-slotted or serrated lower edge as deemed necessary.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:-

1. A bottle, a metallic member secured to the upper end of the neck of the bottle, said member including a portion wholly above the upper end 100 of the neck to provide a sealing cap receiving bead.

2. A glass bottle, an element to be secured to the neck of the bottle to provide a sealing cap receiving bead, said element comprising a por- 105 tion secured to the neck at the upper end thereof, and a portion located wholly above the bottle and formed to provide a bead.

3. A glass bottle, an element to be secured to the neck of the bottle to provide a sealing cap 11 receiving bead, said element comprising a portion secured to the neck at the upper end thereof, and a portion located wholly above the bottle and formed to provide a bead, said latter portion overlying and bearing upon the upper end of the neck.

4. A glass bottle and a bead forming element secured thereto, said element including a skirt to be embedded in the material of the neck of the bottle at the upper end thereof, and a bead portion integral with the skirt and arranged wholly above the upper end of the neck of the bottle.

5. A glass bottle and a bead forming element secured thereto, said element including a skirt to be embedded in the material of the neck of the bottle at the upper end thereof, and a bead portion integral with the skirt and arranged wholly above the upper end of the neck of the bottle, said skirt being formed with openings for the passage of the glass therethrough during the application of the element to the bottle neck.

6. A glass bottle and a bead forming element secured thereto, said element including a skirt to be embedded in the material of the neck of the bottle at the upper end thereof, and a bead portion integral with the skirt and arranged wholly above the upper end of the neck of the bottle, said bead being hollow and substantially circular in cross section.
