  • Does "available for review" mean you will not be posting it here? – George White Apr 20 '17 at 21:32
  • It would be very helpful if you provide the prior art you are already familiar with. – Eric S Apr 21 '17 at 16:41
  • I did find this: bellbottombeverageware.com. This company is from Houston, TX as is the inventor so it seems likely they are related. – Eric S Apr 21 '17 at 16:45

  • Nice find, but I'm not sure this is prior art since it doesn't teach a bell feature. – Eric S May 17 '18 at 21:51
