SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 265,863, dated October 10, 1882. Application filed July 18, 1882. (ModeL) v To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM WALLACE QUIGGLE, of Winnebago City, in the county of Faribault and State of Minnesota, have invented a new and Improved Bottle-Label Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The invention consists in the combination, with a bottle providedwith horizontal segmental grooved flanges, of a glass or porcelain label having its top and bottom edges passed into the grooves of the flanges, between which label and the bottle a wedge or strip is inserted to hold the label in place and prevent it from slidingor slippingoutfrom betweenthegrooved flanges.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters-of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a front view of a bottle provided with my improved label holder and protector, parts being shown in section. Fig. 2 is a side view of the same, parts being broken out and shown in section. Fig.3is a perspective view of the label. I

A represents the bottle, which is provided with alabel-hoider consisting of two transverse parallel flanges, B B, turned toward each other and the upper one made to extend a little fan ther from the bottle than the lower one, so as to cause the liquid which may trickle down the side of the bottle to drop beyond the bottom flange, and thus prevent the label from being soiled or defaced.

At one end the groove of each flangeis closed and at the opposite end it is open. The segmental glass or porcelain label 0 is passed in between the grooved flanges in such a manner that the upper and lower longitudinal edges of thelabel pass into the grooves of the flanges. The label is pushed in between the flanges untiloneendof thelabel strikes against the closed ends of the grooved flanges. A small wedge or piece, D, of wood is passed between the bottle and the inner surface of the label at the open ends of theflanged grooves, for the pur- 1. A bottle having thereona label-holder formed of two parallel transverse flanges, B B, turned toward each other, forming opposite grooves, closed at one end, and having the upper flange extended out from the bottle alittle farther than the lower one, whereby the label is protected from being soiled or defaced, as described. I

2. The combination, with'the bottle A, provided with grooved flanges B, of the glass or porcelain label 0, having its edges passed into the grooves of the flanges, and of the locking piece or strip D, inserted between the label and the bottle, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
