DESIGN FOR A DRINKING-VESSEL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design N0. 15,154, dated July 22, 1884.
Application led May 26, 1884. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern,.-
Be it known that we, JOHN R. GORDON and WILLIAM KERREDGE, citizens of the United States, residing at Hancock, in the county of Houghton and State of Michigan, have invented and produced an original Design for Drinking-Glasses, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
Figure 1 represents a perspective View of our newly-designed glass; Fig. 2, a. side'elevation ofthe same resting upon a dripping-board in an inverted position, and Fig. 3 a side elevation showing the glass in the form of a goblet.
The leading feature of our design consists in the alternate elevations and depressions, the same being oppositely-disposed curves blending the one into the other in the top edge of the cylindrical wall forming the vessel, as shown.
The letterA refers to the body of our glass, which may be of any approved shape, as either that of a. tumbler or goblet. The contour of the edge B, formed on the upper edge of the vertical or nearly vertical body of the glass, is undulatory or wave-like, being composed of oppositely-disposcd curves blending one into the other, so as not to leave any harsh lines or corners. p
Having thus fully described our production, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
In a drinking-glass, the design which consists in the alternate elevations and depressions, the same being oppositely-disposed curves blended one into the other in the top edge of the cylindrical wall forming the vessel, as shown.
In testimony whereof we ax oursignatures in presence of two witnesses.
