  • Patent number: 4304334
    Abstract: An eight bottle carrying case constructed from durable high density polyethylene is lightweight and easy to clean. The case can be nested when empty with similar cases to conserve space and, when full, can be stacked with like cases in an aligned array of cases or cross-stacked on two underlying like cases which are side-by-side and across the long axis of the above cross-stacked case or cases. To convert from aligned stacking of the cases to nesting thereof, alternate cases are turned 180 degrees relative to each other to alter the supportive and interfitting relationship of integral struts on the opposite long side walls of each case. The struts of each case also form bottle positioning means in the case.
