A H. WIRZ BOTTLE STOPPBR. No. 16,992. /`\\Pa,tented NOV. 16,1886.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 16,992, dated November 16, 1886.

Application filed` August 28, 1886. Serial No. Qlllf. Terni of patent Iyenrs To LM whom z' may concern.'

Bc it` known that I, AUGUST H. VIRiZ, a citizen of the United States, residing at Wallingford, in the county of Delaware and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a certain new and useful Design for Bottle-Stoppers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

Figures l and 2, 3 and 4, and 5 and 6 are plan side elevation views, respectively, of dif ferent patterns of my newly-designed stopper.

The main feature of my design consists of a dowensllaped cap for the stopper, and this cap may be in the shape of a deep cup with the petals surrounding the openings in the cap; or the cup may be shallow, but still form a. sunken head or end; or the petals may be curved over or bent back; and the size and shape of the petals may be varied as desired. In all the forms the center of the cap is formed into the shape of a seed-calyx.

A represents the center piece or seed-ealyx,

and B the petals, which may be any size or configuration, and may form a deep or sha1.- low` cup, or may be turned back, as shown in the figures. The edge of the flower or petals will form ascalloped circumference, as shown in the plan views, Figs. 1, 3, and 5. The petals form a rini or flange around the cup.

XVhat I claim is- 1. The design for bottle-Stoppers herein shown and described, consisting of a rim or flange around the cap in the form of the petals of a flower, said petals extending outward from the neck ofthe stopper as from erstem.

2. The design for bottle-Stoppers, consisting of a rini or flange in the form of petals of a flower around the cap of the stopper, and a center in the form of a seed-calyx, as set forth and shown.

In testimony whereof Iaix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
