Application filed December 10, 1913. Serial No. 805,697.
To all whom it may unicorn Be. it known that I, @in'inoi-i L. .ll auvm', a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county oi (look and State of Illinois, have inventral rertaih now and use i'ul 1myu'ovenients in (,ligarette lioxes, of which the. following is a specification.
My invention has for its object. the provision of an original pacli'age for cigarettes of attractive appearance, readily opened and when open. constitutiinp, a carrying case or receptacle of convenient i'oriu, pri eruing the shape of the yuielqet and enahliu he cigarettes to be Witlnlrawu singly and with facility.
The object of the invention is accounplished by torn'iine the original cigarette paeleige of material having a certain degree of elasticity and of an elliptical shape with a cover. The latter may be readily removed in such manner as to leave a carrying case which tits snugly within the pocket and which is adapted to be temporarily thickened in cross section by the 1)].(3881110 ot the lingers so as to facilitate the removal of the contents one by one.
in order that the invention may he reaulily understood a cigarettebox embodying? the same is set forth by way of illustration in the ai'icompauying drawing and in he do tailed description. based thereon.
In the drawing -l igure 1 represents in perspective such a, cigarette box as it comes from the dealer; Fig. is a similar view oil the box being open; Pig. 3 is a view similar to Figs. 1 and 2 showing the poelcet raise in position to have a cigarette extracted,therefrom; and Fig. l is a vertical transverse nection through the. upper portion oi the box before opening.
In the drawing the reference numeral 11 designates the box body having a perina nexitlysecured bottom with a marginal bind-- ing 12 overlapping the side walls of the on at the lower end and serving; as an ornamental finish. At; the, upper end ol the box a similar band 1?, the i'natcrial ot.- u hieh sen on to bridne the joint l'itilAVtOIl the side walls ol the box and a cover ht. A scallop strip t 3 which may or may not he asi-ioeiated with the revmiue stamp is shown as envelopiiug-i the box in a vertical direiixtion although niani t'estly this is not an tfi'itl'l tll feature of the in ventionv Within the hon the cigar ttes ,lt'i are urlvantageously inelo-rd within a moisture proof box lining, 17 of foil, oiled paper, or the lihe and above the cigarettes is arranged a flap to which may be a cont-intuition of the iuterliuing 17 or iinlependent thereof and having; its edges overlain by the lining in order to secure a moisture proojt closure. The tlap 18 may be provided with a tab 19 which extends outside ot' the box beneath the sealirg strip 15.
A cord represented at; 20 is or 'anged about the covet H and beneath the binding material which bridges the joint between the rowr and the band .23, which cord when pulled serves to sever the connection between the hand and the cover and also the sealing slrip 15 along a line conforming to the upper edge of the box thereby entirely detaching: the cover 1 1 from. the box. The sealing strip 15 having been torn across may then be easily removed from the box and the tab 19 hav.in; been rendered necessihle may be grasped by the fingers and the [lap .18 with the overlying portion of the interliniiugj 17 removed so as to leave the box in the form shown in Fig. 3 freed from the sealing strip, the flap and cover and thus constituting a convenient and. sightly pocket cigarette case which by reason of its shape in cross section fits snugly within the ioclict and without deforming the shape of the gari'nentz, the reduced thickness of the case at its two edges permitting it to be reigzeived within the pocket with little distortion ot' the latter. The interior dimensions of the case at:- the two edges is such as to iu-ronlniodate therein a single cigarette while the greater diameter of the ease in its inedial port-ion permits the cigarettes to lie side by side CO1n]')fl('tly.
When it desired to remove a cigarette, the case having been taken from the pocket; the two edges are subje t to a slight pressure of the lingers thus widening the ease in its ('(Illltll portion and enabling the fingers to be inserted httWQtfili the cigarettes in order to remove one of them. The shape ol. the box is. moreoverconducive to econon'iy in manufacture, as the body thereof may be formed upon a u'iandrel in lengths of tubular m elliptical eross-siation and thereafter out into sot-lions ol' the requisite leiurth, and the hot-torus and tops then attached expedh tiously by hand or by nuurhines of simple rouulrurlimh.
l. An original pin-hinge tor rigarettes and the like comprising a receptacle of elongated elliptical cross-section, the sides of which receptacle are composed of elastic ma terial and the bottom likewise of elongated elliptical crosascclion and so formed as to be more rigid, whereby the receptacle will auton'iatical 1y resume its normal shape after distortion for the purpose of facilitating re moval of a portion of its contents, substantiallyas described.
2. An original package for cigarettes and the like comprising a receptacle of general elongated elliptical cross-section and a removable cover the interior dimensions of the receptacle at each of its two edges being such as to accommodate asingle cigarette, the sides of the receptacle being composed of springy material and the bottom being of elongated elliptical crosssection and of a more rigidc'onstruction, Wh""eby the same will automatically resume its .iornial shape after distortion for the purpose of facilitating the removal of aportion of its contents, substantially as described. a
An. original. package for cigarettes or the like comprising a box substantially elliptical in. cross sect-ion, the interior dimensions of the box the two edges being such as to accommodate a single cigarette, a flap overlying the upper end of the cigarettes Within the box and having a tab extending outside the box, a cover for said box, a seal overlying the cover and proj ting tab, and nieans to sever the seal and expose the tab, substantially as describedr In t-estiniony' whereof I have hereunto signed mv name in the; presence of two sub h scribing witnesses.
