Today in 1902, US Patent D36124 S was issued, an invention of Louis Bessiere, for his “Design For A Drinking Vessel.” There’s no Abstract, although in the description it includes this summary:
My design is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, referred to herein, which shows a drinking: vessel with the design thereon. The piece A consists of three ornaments composed of curved lines connected by a small transverse bar at the center. The ornamental leaves is repeated a number of times to form a continuous band or border extending around the vessel.
The body X of the vessel is otherwise plain and rounded at the bottom. It is supported by a slender stem X, terminating at the disk shaped base The shape of the vessel, however, is not new, and it will be apparent that the ornamentation above described may be placed on differently-shaped vessels.
