'March 26, 1940. R. E. PARIS CONTAINER Filed May 15, 193e FIGI I l I I INVENTOR v '.Patentecl Mar.

UNITEDE sun-.s

ycorrrnrrns v y Robert ErPariS, New York,- N.y Y. AppnmtimMay 15, 1936, serial'No. vasos n v iclaim. witze-24) This invention relates generally to containers, and more speciically to the class of containers used for storage oi' beverages", such asbeer and ale.

e Two classes of metallic containersy for'sucl'r v products are atpresent on.y the market. Oneof these is in the-forni of the usual rtin can, and in obtaining access to the contents one must pierce the cover, often resulting in loss of a `portion of the contents. The other has the top formed with a neck or spout much thesame as a bottle, land closed with theusual 'cap or cork-lined metallic seal which may beopened` inthe usual manner of opening bottles. How- 15 ever, this neck prevents easy stacking of thev containers.

The 'present invention contemplates twov advvantages over these containers, ,in` 'that it is capable oi` opening without use of a separate be opened by the purchaser 'without the assistl ance of any special openingmeans.

It is a further object ofthe invention to,- construct a container with a neck or pmring. spout y3Q which may also be readily stacked.

' Other objects will appear viromthe followingv description.

. One form of the invention is illustrated inthe g accompanying drawing, in which:r

Fig. l is an elevation vof a container embodyL ing my invention. v

Fig, 2 is ra verticai sectional viewsubstantially` line 2 2 of Fig. 1.

3 is a horizontal sectional Vviewfs'ubstantially-on line 3-3 of Fig.2. f.

4 is a top plan viewof the container.v Fig. 5 is a fragmentary detail elevation somewhat enlarged, and showing the neck of the vcontainer body. n l K. f Fie. 6 is an enlarged fragmentarydetail View partly in section to show` the construction of the sealing member.

Like reference characters refer to the same Darts in-all views. y Referring to the drawing in detail, 'I0 reprebody.

sents thebody of a container, andy il represents .Y

the closure or sealing member of. the same.

The bodyv i0 has its top formed intoa neck or pouring spout. I2` from which are yformed out The closure member Hi'is vformed with a cap element I4 carrying theusual cork or other sealing element l5. The cap element I4 is also formed with inwardly extending lugs I6 for cof-- operation with lugs I3. Beyond the cap element 10 M the closure vmember tlis formed kupwardly to theqlevel of. thecap element M, and then outwardly as at lll forming a tablel orplatformy so as to permit readily stacking of thecontainer's.

The outer portion ofvrnember Si is bent down` 155V Wardly into'an apron. IB having its lower `margin rolledl in to rest on the. edge of .thetop of the i -body member it).y Thef apron i8 is corrugated to lform a ready means of `gripping the closure. member in removing same. yf2.0

f `When the container is lled, the'closure mem'-,

`ber isapplied under pressure, lugs it passing kbetween lugs i3 until below them. Then closure` n member il.. is turned' to bring lugs i6 under lugs i3. The container is thus sealed, and is 2'5 of a contour to lend itself lto being easily stacked. y

Whenit is desired to remove the closure member, .A it is only necessary to grasp the body I0 with i one hand, andthe apron of the closure member With the other; and a slightv turn will disengage 30 lugs EG and I3, whereupon the internal pressure will raise the cap; and upon removing the entire closure member, the contents can readily be poured from thecontainer` body.

What I claim is:

A container comprising a cylindrical body, anv

'upwardly extending restricted neck, a tapered memberconnecting the top edge of said body` to said restricted neck, and a cover member hav,-

. ing a central cap portion of cupdikeformation 40 .andhaving a ange extending downward from .v v

said flat portion, said flange terminating inga 45 peripheral edge joining said body atl the point;

where said tapered member begins so as 'to be substantially a continuation of the cylindrical .l
