It is another object of this invention to provide

any shifting of the containers in relation to each

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

projections, which will coincide with depressions
in the bottom of the adjacent alined cans, there

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.
