"J. SHELLENBERGER.

Bottle Wrapper. No. 239,987. Patented April 12,1881.

PATENT OFFICE.

JOHN SHELLENBERGER, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA.

BOTTLE-WRAPPER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 239,987, dated April 12, 1881. Application filed November 23, 1880. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN SHELLENBERGER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Thin \Vood-Veneer Wrappers for Bottles and other Glassware, of which the following is a specification.

My inventioarelates to wood-veneer wrappers for bottles and other similar ware; and the object of my improvement is to provide a wood veneer wrapper with fringed brushshaped ends, which, when wrapped around a bottle, will protect the same from breakage and admit of close packing in cases. This object l accomplish by the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in Which- Figure 1 represents a top view of a bottle the body of which is inclosed in my improved wood-veneer wrapper. Fig. 2 is a vertical View of a bottle with the wrapper-in section. Fig. 3 is a plan view of a sheet of wood veneer having both ends slit into narrow strips, forming fringe of a brush shape; and Fig. 4 is an end View of Fig. 3, showing the irregular manner in which the narrow strips forming the fringe cause an extra thickness of the wood by overlapping one another; and Fig. 5 represents a perspective view of a wrapper composed of two sections of veneer united together by a paper band.

Similar letters refer to like parts throughout the several views.

B represents any ordinary bottle; a, the sheet of thin Wood veneer. 7

AA represent the fringed or bruslrshaped ends, which are cut or slit by suitable inachinery. These sheets of thin wood veneer, when provided with the fringed edges A A,

are wrapped around a bottle in one or more 0 pieces and secured by pasting a paper strip, 0, around the uncut part a, or the wrapper may be made in two or more parts, with the joints a united by a paper band, 0, forming a case, in which the bottle can be inserted.

The upper fringed end, A, may be bent inward, cone-shaped, around the neck of the bottle, and the lower fringed end,A, may be bent outward, if desired, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. When a lot of bottles thus inelosed are packed in a box or case they pack closely, and the danger of breakage is avoided.

By making the thin wood-veneer wrappers with fringed brush-shaped ends in two or more parts or sections, and uniting them altogether by pasting a strip of paper around them, the pieces forming each wrapper may be closed flat together and shipped in bulk, each wrapper being complete and ready to receive a bottle.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A wrapper for bottles, as an article of manufacture, consisting of a thin sheet of wood veneer having one or both ends out or slit into thin, narrow strips, forming a fringe of a brush shape, the strips forming the fringe overlapping each other and forming a double elastic thickness of the wood at the top, or top and bottom, as shown and described.

In testimony WhereofI have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

JOHN SHELLENBERGER.
