MATERIA-L FOR PACKlNG BOTTLES.
SPECIFICATION formingV part of Letters Patent No. 300,323, dated June l0, 1884-.
Application filed June 29, 1993.
To LM whom, it may cm1/cern:
Be it known that I, OLivEn Lone, of the city of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, haveinvented a new and useful Material for Packing Bottles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming apart of this specification.
1o My invention consists in an improvement in the packing material placed between botties made by placing in the recesses of conti guous paper wrappers hay or straw, so made as to form pads,whicl1 are placed between the bottles or wrapped around them.
In the drawings, Figure grepresents a plan view of' a piece of the packing material, in which the paper wrapper is shown at A, and the recesses in the wrappers filled with hay 2o or straw. are shown at B. Fig. 3 is a vertical section ofthe saine piece of packing along the plane of the line g/g/ in Fig. 2, and more clearly shows the arrangement ot' the straw or hay in the recesses in the wrapper. For convenience suoli a piece of packing is called a pathA77 Fig. il shows three bottles, C C C, with pads placed between them and preventing their contact. et is a top plan View of a box filled withbottles and protected by the pads.
^o This View more clearly indicates the method of using this material.
The pads of suitable size are placed in an upright position against the sides of the box and between the rows, the bottles being prevented from touching each other laterally by means of smaller pads inserted between them at right angles to the former row of pads. The bottoms and tops of the bottles are protected by placing next to them sheets of straw- 4o board, card-board, or wood, as shown at a in Fig. l, and placing large pads between such (No model.)
sheets of card-board and the bottom and lid of the box or case.
In the packing of bottles the only parts that need protection are the bottom, the top, and the lines of contact with the adjacent bottles and with the sides of the box. If this purpose is accomplished, all packing material between the bodies and necks of the bottles is super iluous, and only increases the weight of the 5o package and the expense of the packing. Straw is the most perfect packing materia-l, especially in its unbroken tubular form, re-
-inainino' alwa's elastic and unaffected b f moisture, as in a ships hold. Straw, however, causes more or less litter or dirt, and is objectionable on that account. By the use of my invention the bottles are perfectly protected at their lines of contact with each other and with the sides ofthe box. No superfluous 6o material is employed, and the weight and bulk of the packed case is little more than when filled with the bottles alone. It is not affected by moisture, there is no litter, as the straw cannot escape, and the material may be repeatedly used. By using the method of packing above described there is also a material saving of time and labor.
Having thus described my in vention, what I claim as new is- 7o As an article of manufacture, a material composed of two sheets of paper, each sheet having recesses or corrngations, secured together with the recesses in the sheets opposing each other, thus forming cavities, which are filled with hay, dro., substantially in the manner set forth, and for the purposes specified.
