' The ‘present invention overcomes I . . 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- 15 tion I4 providing a rim 20 on bottom l2 and a rim 2| on top l3. ‘The top l3‘of the container comprises the substantially frustro-conical ‘wall forming shoulder S and a substantially cylindri- > cal wall protruding from shoulder S forming a 20 neck or spout l5. Spout l5 may be closed in these and the conventional manner by means of a crown cap 16 or screw cap (not shown) in the latter It is an object of this invention to provide a 25 container made of metal‘ or other suitable mate rial with a bottom, which will ?t over the top of case threads being provided on the spout l5 for other di?iculties.

For this reason the container with a spout is preferable and becoming more .15 Popular. It is with this spout type of can‘ this - 1? ; ' ‘f depressions on the top of a similar container. The drawing shows examples of how the inven ?at end containers are unsanitary and cause dif ‘ r, thebottom‘iof the puncturing of one end to provide an outlet 10 Although satisfactory for stacking purposes, these i g container-being broken away. It is another object of this invention to provide in a \container a recessed bottom which will ?t closely over the. ‘crown or screw cap closure of a preceding similar container, thereby preventing any shifting of the containers in relation to each 35 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 iS‘B, still further object of this invention to 40 provide the container tops with corrugations, as projections, which will coincide with depressions in the bottom of the adjacent alined cans, there by preventing the rotation of the various stacked containers in relation to each other. 45 »To enable others skilled in the art so fully to interengagement'with those on the cap. ‘ 25 Bottom l2 may be provided with a‘ recess I1 de?ned by wall W (Fig. 1), or a recess l1’ de?ned by wall W’ (Fig. 2), or anyother suitable wall for the purpose intended. ' ‘These walls, W, W'nare 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 con ical portion, terminating in an-upwardly extend- 35 ing conical portion [8, complementary with the conical top l3. These walls, therefore act'as re inforcing means for the bottom of the container‘ and prevent opening of the seamed joint thereof. In recess l'l de?ned 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.

A container comprising a wall having top and described, the same being merely illustrative, 10 and that the invention can be carried out in and bottom attached thereto by seamed joints other ways without departing from the spirit extending inwardly of the extreme ends of said thereof, and therefore, I claim broadly the right wall providing end rims thereon for stacking a plurality of said containers, the top rising in to employ all equivalent instrumentalities com ing within the scope of the appended claims, and frustro-conical shape from its seamed juncture 15 by means of which objects of my invention are with the wall with a neck at its upper end, and attained and new results accomplished, as it is‘ the bottom having an inverted conical portion obvious that the particular embodiments herein extending from the seamed joint and terminating shown and described are only some of many that in an upwardly extending conical portion com plementary with the frustro-conicai top to ?t can be employed to attain these objects and ac --_'-on'the top of a similar container stacked there 20 20 complish these results.
