This invention relates in general to certain new
and useful improvements in beverage bottle cases.
The present invention has for its primary 0bject the provision of a unlquely designed unitary

along the bottom margins to the upper face of
the bottom wall 3 in the formation of a plurality

to provide a beverage bottle case or container

which is extremely rugged and durable and is rel- 10 tion of a four-way opening 1 between each of the

The case or container A, designed as above described, may be molded in a single unitary operation from a suitable plastic mix containing 5
and combination of the several parts of beverage
bottle cases may be made and substituted for
those herein shown and described without de
parting from the nature and principle of my in
long shredded ?brous material which results in
a container having extremely high impact '
strength. It will also be apparent that beverage
bottle containers, constructed in accordance with
the present invention, are extremely light-weight 10
and, therefore, can be much more easily handled
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
A one-piece molded plastic beverage bottle case
comprising four rigid side walls integrally con
nected at their ends and a rigid bottom wall in
