Description

I Patentecl Apr. 13, 1937 invention relatestoimprovements incon tainerforioods and beverages; especially the type made'of all metal or metal ends." I containers of this type usually 1 comprise one having flat ends and another having a spout. In-

theflat whichcan" beeasilystacked for display, shipping or storage purposes, it requires the puncturing of one end to provide an outlet or dispensing means to withdraw the contents.

Although satisfactory for stacking purposes, these flat end containers are unsanitary and cause difficulties in pouring, and once punctured cannot be closed again. For this reason the container with a spout is preferable and becoming more .15 P pular. It is with this spout type of can this 2 invention is concerned.

The spout type of container-is, however, difficult to stack for shipping, display and other i purposes, as the crown or screw cap closure does notprovide asatisfactory base upon which to rest the next can. The present invention other difliculties.

It is an object of this invention to provide a container made of metal or other suitable material with a bottom, which will fit over the top of an adjacent alinedsimllar container, thereby permitting the rims of the two containers to contact and to give a secure resting surface.

It is another object of this invention to provide in a container a recessed bottom which will fit closely over the crown or screw cap closure of a preceding similar container, thereby preventing any shifting of the containers in relation to each other when the containers are stacked while, at the same time, maintaining the rigidity of the bottom against weakening thereof, or of its seamed joint with the wall of the container.

It iSB, still further object of this invention to provide the container tops with corrugations, as projections, which will coincide with depressions in the bottom of the adjacent alined cans, thereby preventing the rotation of the various stacked containers in relation to each other.

To enable others skilled in the art so fully to comprehend the underlying features thereof that they may embody the same by the numerous modifications instructure and relation contemplated by this invention, a drawing depicting certain forms of the invention has been annexed as a part of this disclosure, and in such drawing, like characters of reference denote corresponding parts throughout all the views, of which:-

Fig. 1 represents a side elevational view, half in section, of two alined similar containers in suit sat s es 'Application' Decembeis1, l935,rSerial\ I overcomes these and g r, thebottom of container-being broken away. 1? f Fig.2 shows a partly sectional and partly broken away," view" of the- -invention 'in a -modified forr'n in which the containerbottom is provided with projections'=' to register witli c'orrespon'ding' I depressions on the top of a similar container.

The drawing shows examples of how the invention may be applied.

The container Ill may have the conventional 10 cylindrical shell or wall comprising the body II and top l3, and further has a substantially an nular bottom l2. The bottom I2 and the top l3 may be secured at opposite ends to body H in the conventional manner of seam construc- 1 tion I4 providing a rim 20 on bottom l2 and a rim 2| on top l3. The top l3of the container comprises the substantially frustro-conical wall forming shoulder S and a substantially cylindrical wall protruding from shoulder S forming a 20 neck or spout l5. Spout l5 may be closed in the conventional manner by means of a crown cap 16 or screw cap (not shown) in the latter case threads being provided on the spout l5 for interengagement'with those on the cap. 25

Bottom l2 may be provided with a recess I1 defined by wall W (Fig. 1), or a recess l1 defined by wall W (Fig. 2), or anyother suitable wall for the purpose intended.

These walls, W, W' are formed such that the 30 recesses ll, l1, will house that portion of top l3 which protrudes above'rim 2| of a companion stacked container. The bottom l2 or l2 extends downwardly from the seam M in an inverted conical portion, terminating in an-upwardly extend- 35 ing conical portion [8, complementary with the conical top l3. These walls therefore act'as reinforcing means for the bottom of the container and prevent opening of the seamed joint thereof.

In recess l'l defined by wall W, the angular por- 40 tion I8 of the latter is adapted to rest against the portiori IQ of shoulder S of a similar container.

Figure 1 shows two adjacently alined or stacked similar containers wherein the bottom rim 20 the "lower of the upper container rests on the top rim 2| of the loweryco'ntainenand"portion iii of wall W restson portion 1 9" of shoulder. Sf .The cap It is within th cylindrical"portionfifl9f ,wall w which extends fromzportioiiis and which is the i1. provides a clearance for cap l6.

In the arrangement illustrated in Fig. 2, the wall W of bottom IZ is provided with projec-" tions 23 which are adapted to fit into depressions 24 of the top I3 of a similar container. The

I ,deepes't portionof recess-I1. f Portion 22 of're'cess edges or rims 20 and 2! will also contact in this case.

Although I have here shown the application of my invention to a cylindrical container it is understood that the same is applicable to any type of container of the spout class.

I desire it understood that the invention is not to be confined to the particular forms shown and described, the same being merely illustrative, and that the invention can be carried out in other ways without departing from the spirit thereof, and therefore, I claim broadly the right to employ all equivalent instrumentalities coming within the scope of the appended claims, and by means of which objects of my invention are attained and new results accomplished, as it is obvious that the particular embodiments herein shown and described are only some of many that can be employed to attain these objects and accomplish these results.

Having described my invention, what I claim" as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A container comprising a wall having top and bottom attached theretotby seamed joints extending inwardly of the extreme ends of said wall providing end rims thereon, the top rising in frustro-conicai shape from its seamed juncture with the wall, and the bottom having an inverted conical portion extending'irom the seamed joint and terminating in an upwardly extending conical portion complementary with the frustroconical top to fit on the top of a similar container stacked therewith.

2. A container comprising a wall having top and bottom attached thereto by seamed joints extending inwardly of the extreme ends of said wall providing end rims thereon for stacking a plurality of said containers, the top rising in frustro-conical shape from its seamed juncture with the wall with a neck at its upper end, and the bottom having an inverted conical portion extending from the seamed joint and terminating in an upwardly extending conical portion complementary with the frustro-conicai top to fit '-on'the top of a similar container stacked there-
