BOTTLE-S'DOEPEB.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 10, 1 9-1 3.

Application filed October 4, 1912. Serial No. 723,919.

7 '0 all whom it may. concern:

Beit known that we, Louis ROSENFIELD and JOSEPH E. OBPER, citizens of the United States, residing at Chicago, State of Illinois, and Louisville, 1n the county of Jefferson and State of Kentucky, respectively, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Stoppers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in bottle stoppers.

The object of the invention is to provide a stopper the body of which may be formed of cork or other com ressible material, with a cap or top of di erent material, with a construction so that the cap and body may be firmly attached, so as to provide, when ready for use, a structure substantially integral, and one in which a cement or glue may be used as an additional fastening means, without the likelihood of the glue or cement flowing to the outside of the cork, where it might contaminate the contents of the bottle.

In the drawings-Figure 1 is a central vertical section of the stopper, constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a central section of the cork body, and Fig. 3 shows a modified form of shank.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the stopper body, which may be formed of cork or other suitable compressible material. It is provided centrally with a cylindrical socket 2.

The numeral 4 designates may be of wood, glass, composition or other suitable material. It presents a fiat upper surface 5 upon which may be placed suitable advertising matter, either in the 'way of printing or branding, in the case of wood, or molding or casting in the case of glass, composition, etc.

The under face of the cap is cut away to form an annular recess 6, which receives the upper end of the body when the parts are assembled. Centrally attached to the cap, on its under side, is a peculiarly shaped shank 7, preferably generally rectangular in form, so as to prevent turning within the body. The shank is formed with an upper enlargement 8, cut away at its upper edge as indicated at 9 to form an annular recess for the reception of a portion of the cork body adjacent to the cap. The lower edge of the enlargement is beveled as incounty of Cook,

the cap which.

'dicated at 10-, and integral with the enlargement is a short enlargement 12 undercut or beveled, as indicated at 13, to provide a recess for the reception of a portion ofthe material of the cork body, and finally the shank is provided with a conical head 14:, presentin a short annular shoulder 15, which in ad ition to the shoulders on the enlargements 8,. head 14, present shoulders which are engaged by the elastic cork body, thus effectually preventing the shank from being pulled out of the body after having been once inserted therein. In addition to this holding means, we prefer to use a certain quantity of glue or cement, which may be either introduced into the socket or placed upon the shank, and it will be noted that the insertion of the peculiarly shaped shank presenting as it does, a number of shoulders or looks, will prevent the cement or glue from flowing up over the top of the cork body, and down the sides thereof, which would be disadvantageous, in that there would be a contamination of the contents of the bottle. It will be noted that the recess formed by the upper beveled edge of the enlargement 8 will form a further lock against the flow of the cement, so that the cement or glue. to be effectual, and serve its purpose, need not even touch the under side of the cap.

In the modification shown in Fig. 3, the shank while formed with the enlargements, head, etc., is generally cylindrical in shape, as contradistinguished from being rectangular and in such a form, of course, the cement or glue is depended upon to a greater extent to prevent turning in the body.

In assembling the parts, that is to say, the cap and body, the shank will embed itself into the elastic material of the body, and said body will, by reason of its own elasticity, conform to the various recesses and shoulders upon the shank, as is obvious.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim is 1. In a bottle stopper, comprising a body of compressible material having a central cylindrical socket therein, a cap having a shank attached centrally to its under side, said shank being formed with an enlargement and a reduced portion below the enlargement and a second enlargement below said reduced portion, said shank being fur- ATENT ()FFICE.

ther reduced in diameter below the second enlargement and provided at its lower end with a pointed head, the stopper body being adapted to eonfornrto the variout recesses and shoulders formed by the enladgements, reduced portions and head.

2. A bottle stopper comprising a body of compressible material having a cylindrical socket therein, a cap having a rectangular shank centrally attached to its under side, said shank being formed with an enlargement adjacentto the cap, a reduced port-ion below the enlargement, a second enlargement below the reduced portion, and a second reduced portion below the second enlargement, and a conical head on the end of the shank, thereby providing means engaged by the stopper body, for preventing the shank from being Withdrawn from the body, and preventing its turning therein.

3. A bottle stopper comprising a body of compressible material, a cap having a recess in its under face, a rectangular shank centrally secured to said under face, said shank being provided with a rectangular enlargement adjacent to the cap and provided with a cut-away portion adjacent to the cap, for the purpose set forth, a reduced portion below the enlargement, a second enlarge-- ment below said reduced portion and a second reduced port-ion below the intermediate enlargement and having a conical head thereon, whereby shoulders and recesses are formed which are engaged by the elastic material of the cork to prevent the cap and cork body from being separated.

In testimony whereof 'we aflix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
