The file of this patent contains at least one drawing executed in color. Copies of this patent with color drawings will be provided by the Office upon request and payment of the necessary fee.

FIG. 1 is a bottom plan view of the cookware vessel with a decorative texture on the exterior bottom showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional elevation view thereof taken at section line 2-2 in FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view of a second embodiment of the cookware vessel with a decorative texture on the exterior bottom showing our new design;

FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional elevation view thereof, taken at section line 4-4 in FIG. 3; and,

FIG. 5 is a front elevation thereof, the right, left and back elevation views being identical.

The bottom of the vessel in the elevation and cross sectional views is illustrated with a line of alternating colors to indicate that the bottom surface has a texture. The thickness of this line is not intended to illustrate the depth of this texture on the bottom surface with respect to any other dimensions. As this texture would extends outward from the 2 dimensional plane of the drawings figures by generally less than the lateral dimensions of the smallest colored features in the plan views, on the larger scale of illustration in elevation and section view the bottom surface is essentially planar and is hence represented by a line with alternating colors. As the contours of this texture are infinitesimally small with respect to other dimensions of the claimed design, the claim is not intended to be limited to a particular relative or absolute dimension, contour or shape of this texture.

The broken line in the various FIGS. indicate unclaimed portions of the design such that the claimed cookware vessel body is not limited to a particular wall shape or height above the interior portions indicate with solid lines.

The colors of the claimed design are not limited to the exact hues, brightness and saturation depicted.


The ornamental design for a cookware vessel with a decorative texture on the exterior bottom, as shown and described.
