'- BOTTLE;-

'- Application filed July 31, 1924'. Serial No. 729,208.

Our invention relates to bottles and more particularly to a bottle-which is so constructed that it will not slip from the grasp of ones hand.

Various liquids of general household use and chemicals are packed in bottles which must be subjected to a considerable amount of handling. The ordinary type of bottle is not easily retained in ones grasp owing to the smoothness of the glass and a druggist or a housewife often drops the bottle while attempting to pour liquid from it. If the contained liquid is one which may injure the surface of the material upon which it falls, it is then highly advisable that provision be made to prevent such an accident.

It is accordingly the main object of our invention to provide a bottle construction which is particularly adapted for containing chemicals and liquids used in the household and which is so constructed as to provide a suitable hand hold which will normally prevent the bottle slipping from the users grasp.

With this and other objects in View as will be apparent in the following disclosure, our invention resides in the combination of parts set forth in the specification and covered by the claim appended hereto.

Referring to the drawings in which like reference numerals indicate like parts Fig. l is a vertical end view of a bottle;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same;

Fig. 3 is a cross section on the line 33 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary perspective view of the upper portion of the bottle.

In accordance with our invention, we propose to make a bottle nonslipping and easy to hold, although it may be of considerable size, by constricting the central portion of the bottle and so shaping this constricted portion that the hand will readily grasp the same. Supplementing this feature we provide the sides of the bottle with corrugations or raised portions which afford a grip ping surface for ones fingers in holding the bottle.

Referring to the drawings, illustrating one embodiment of our invention, the bottle, which may be of a size much larger than may be easily grasped by the hand, is provided with opposite concave sides 10, at its central portion so shaped that ones'hand may fit comfortably around three sides thereof. This double concave portion is preferably as high as the width of the average hand, as illustrated in Fig. 1, so that a person may hold a large bottle comfortably and securely. As a further safety feature, each concaved side 10 is provided with a depressed portion 11 which contains a series of finger holds, such as vertical ridges 12 spaced apart and so located and shaped as to afford an antislipping gripping surface for ones fingers; These ridges are preferably made as sharp as is feasible in the glass making art. It, however, is not necessary that they be ground, as they may be cast in molds In accordance with the usual practice. They are preferably located tions of the bottle, since one would naturally grasp the bottle about the narrow side in such a manner that the fingers and thum would engage the constricted sides.

These parts are so arranged that as one tips the bottle to pour liquid from it, the shoulders 13 at the upper portion of the bottle and 14 adjacent-the bottom of the bottle prevent the bottle from slipping longitudinally through the hand. The bottle cannot slip easily sideways because of the corrugations or ridges 12.

The depressed portion 11 and the ridges are shown as extending beyond the concaved area 10 in order to form ample gripping surface, but the ridges 12 do not project above the surface of the surrounding annular portion 16 nor do they project above the flat surface at the upper and lower portions of the shoulders 13 and 14. The annular portion 15 adjacent the vertical corners of the bottle and the shoulders 13 and 14 form a thick projecting portion which aids one in holding the bottle.

This peculiar shape of bottle may be easily assembled in a pasteboard container owing to the absence of any projection outside of the plane formed by the smooth faces of the shoulders 13 and 14. Moreover the bottle is attractive in shape and pleasing to the eye and it presents two substantially flat, smooth surfaces 15 which are adapted for pasting paper labels thereon.

The advantages inherent in this type of bottle are obvious and its manner of use on the concave porwill be apparent to any one. It is also clear that we may make various changes in this construction within the scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and Letters Patent is:

A bottle for household use having two opposite concave sides and two substantially fiat sides for pasting labels thereon, depressed areas in the cone-wad sides and closedesire. to. secure by 1i arranged vertical parallel ridges within t ie concave sides whose tops are not higher than the surface of the bottle surrounding the de ressed area, said concaved portion and ri es coogerating to form an antislipping hand he! In testimony whereof, we have si need our names to this specification, this 231 day of June, 1924.
