COLLAPSIBLE DISPLAY-CONTAINER.

To all whom z't'mag/ concern.'

i i Be it known that I, EDWARD O. TINsLEY,

terial could only chasing. public. 2 0 'f form and interlocked,

a citizen of the United States, residin in Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and tate of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Collapsible Display-Containers, of which the following This invention relates generally to collapsible-boxes, and more especially to knock- .down boxes that may be flattened out .for

in quantities;

purposes of shipping the same A that may be practically instantly assembled for use as shipping'containers; and as quickly turned into open and vdisplay-con'- tainers supported fn such Ianner that the goods therein will be displayed in ...an attractive and pleasing manner to the pur- Such containers may be ormed of any desired sheet material but usually and preferably for cheapness are formed of thin cardboard, stampedout into two separate normally non-attached coacting-blanks; which when folded into proper with the goodstherein, or for purposes of counter or window display, when retailed;

The'main' and fundamental object of my invention herein-disclosed is to-form a cheap and efficient knock-down shipping, and display-container, in' which the hand-work and manipulation necessary to form. the same; and `also to assemble the same into proper form to be lled, will be reduced tol a minimum. In all of such hitherto known in the art, expert labor has been required to form the same, and c onsiderable glue or other suitable cementlng material has vof necessity skilled labor; but in my improved form of container herein shown, described and small glued, or

claimed, there 1s only one theentlre struc- Otherwise secured joint, lin ture, and the by the cheapest- Of unskilled labor and as quickly, easily land cheaply dlsassembled and folded flat into proper shlppmg small space; whereby such container may be used over and over again at a mlnimum' cost.

'These and other features, capabilities-andV advantages of the invention, will appear Specification of Letters Patent.

will form the complete containers either for-purposes of shipment boxes4 Or receptacles been ,used in thel formation thereof; which cementing' mabe applied by lhigh-class parts thereof can be quickly and easily assembled into a retalner form,

land ready for shipment."

support member, which when vsuperposed upon the main body box' or receptacle formed from the blank A, shown inFig. 3, constltutes thev entire structure of my improved kn'ock-down, collapsible, shipping and display box or container, herein shown, described and claimed. f

Fig. 6 is a View similar to Fig. 4 lof the blank shown in Fig.l 5 bent up into proper form to receive the main body portion of the receptacle shown in Fig. 4; and

Fig. 7 is'a view o f the entire box or-receptacle taken in central vertical section on t.) of

from the left thereof in the direction of the arrow the auxiliary cover and tilting base support bein shown infull lines, aboutto be put into t e display supporting position shown therein in-dotted lines. eferring to the drawing As shown in Fig. 3, the mainfbody inner box-forming blank of the receptacle desig nated by the 'reference letter A, comprises member 26, the end member 27 and the sethe central bottom portion 1.1, the end pori tions 12 and 12, the front portion 13 and the back portion 14, such front and back portions being provided at the ends with the securing-tabs13 and 14 respectively, and

exterior to the end pieces 12 and 12. The4 tabs 13 and 14', preferably narrow from their bases at 19, outwardly so as to leave between the same and the end pieces 12 and 12', outwardly flaring slots 16', (as clearly indicated in Fig. 3) and the outer end lines 17 of the display cover 15, extend a short distance beyond the score lines 19 of the main body portion of such blank, so that when folded down into the closed position shown in Fig. 1, the over the tops of the side members 12 and 12', as clearly indicated at 20 of Fig. 1.

The outer border rectangular binder and combined 4outer auxiliary cover and'inclined base support member, indicated by the reference letter B, which is superposed upon the mainbody rectangular-box portion formed from the blank A, compr1ses the combined .auxiliary outer cover and supporting base portion 21, having the outer securing-flap 22 and the border band back-piece 24 in line with the end band member 25, the front band curing tab 28. Such members 24, 25, 26, 27 and securing-tab 28 beingscored upon the outward side by the scoring lines 29 similar to the lines 17, 18 and 19 of Fig. 3, and the main-body portion thereof, made u of 21,

422, 23 and 24, is also scored on the mes 30,-

31 and 32, in like manner.

The blanks having 'been formed by suitable dies and blanking mechanism into the shapes shown in Figs. 3 and 5; the securing rectangular" body binder-portions of B- (24,

25, 26, 27 and 28) is bent upon its four scorings 29, and the tab 28, being supplied with glue or suitable cementing material is then lued to 24 at the pointmarked 33 of l 24, igs. 5 and 6), so as to be bent into the rectangular formclearly shown in Fig. 6; while for purposes of shipment of the blanks 1n bulk, such rectangular band-portion can b e, bent down flat; and in place of glue or vlike cementing material the tab 28 may be secured at 33 by metallic or other suitable fastening with equal effect.

Toassemble the blanks A andBV into box i form: for the reception of the goods to be shipped and put on sale; the blank A is taken 1n hand by the worker, and the ends 12 and 12" are bent up into the right angled upright position shown in Fig. 4, and the displaycover 15 will extendthe inner tilting base-support portion 23,.

` an end wall-portion,

tabs 13 and 14 being bent outwardly over such end pieces 12 and 12(as clearly indicated in Fig. 4), `such rectangular box-receptacle so formed, is passed down into or up through the exterior-binder rectangularA portion of B formed by 24, 25, 26 and 27, which will retain such central-box or body portion A in the form shown in Fig. 4; and the box bein filled with the goods, the combined auxi iary outer-cover'and tilt-base support, 21, 22 and 23 being turned forward, up over the main display cover 15, and the securing end 35, passed down into the space '36 (Figs. 1 and 2) between the outer face member 26 of the blank B, and the adjacent front-wall member 13 of A, the complete box or receptacle, with its contents, will be in the closed position shown in Fig. 1, and ready for shipment.

When it is desired to place the goods upon exhibition, the outer auxiliary-cover and ytilting base support (21,22 and 23) is bent backward, into the position shownin Fig.i 7

to its position when in the closed box position, shown in Fig. 1, and slipped up into the space between 26 and 13, from the bottom, the auxiliary cover and tilt-base-'support will be in the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 7, and in full lines in Fig. 2, whereby 'the box containing the goods to be displayed, will be raised at the rear, and' thus tilted forward to bring the oods therein more perfectly to View; an at the same time the main inner display cover 15, usually supplied with suitable. advertising matter, is thrown up into the position shown in Figs. 2 and 7.

Itis evident that many changes and modifications in the construction of my improved collapsible shipping and display box or re# ceptacle herein shown, described, and claimed, may be made without departing from the scope of my invention, and I do not intend to limit myself to-the exact construction, of the whole or any of the parts thereof herein set` forth.
