SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 30,851, dated May 23, 1899.

Application tiled April 15,1899. Serial No. 713,206. Term of patent 7 yous.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES R. ZACHARXAS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Asbury Park, in the county of Monmouth and State of New Jersey, have invented and produced a new and original Design for a C01- lapsible Tube; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

A collapsible tube for holding solutions, cements, and volatile compositions is the type of article for which the present design is intended; and the same consists, essentially, of a rounded or hemispherical protuberance centrally projected outward from the extremity of the neck of the tube and having its outer face or side flattened and an annular base or marginal portion receding from the protuberance on diverging lines.

The design is set forth more particularly hereinafter, characterized, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is aperspective view of a collapsible tube embodying the design. Fig. 2 is an end View.

The body 1 of the tube is cylindrical, and

its sides are grad nall y flattened and converge toward their lower ends, which latter come together in parallel planes and are rolled. The neck 2 is of circular outline in transverse section and is centrally disposed with reference to the body 1, an annular oflset 3 being provided at the base of the neck and intersecting with the walls of the body and sloping in all directions away from the said neck. Flutes or ribs 4 encircle the neck and have a spiral arrangement. The protuberance 5 at the outer extremity of the neck 2 is centrally arranged and is of approximately hemisphericai or rounded form, the outer side being somewhat flattened. An annular base 6 connects the protuberance 5 with the walls of the neck 2 and recedes in all directions on curved lines.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is- The design for a collapsible tube, substantially as herein shown and described.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
