Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 18, 1920.
Application filed October 15, 1919. SeriaI No. 330,936.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, RAYMONDVAN Iona- STINE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved Display-Carton, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates generally to a new and improved carton or box, and more particularly to a box or carton having telescoping parts, the said box being particularly adapted for display purposes.
One of the objects of this invention is to provide in a box construction comprising a plurality of interfitting or telescoping parts, a construction which will at all times provide a connection between the parts of the box, so as to prevent the possibility of the said parts becoming separated or lost, but
still to permit free relative movement between the several parts, and to permit the parts to be readily arranged in a position most efiective for purposes of display, in
which position the connecting portion may be arranged to extend from the box, preferably at one end, which serves as an advertisement, or a price tag.
A further object of this invention is to provide in a box comprising telescoping body and top portions, a onepiece carton so arranged and constructed that the top and bottom are connected b a portion which may be folded between t e top and body to overlie the latter, thus serving as a supple mental or' additional covering for the body of the box. Such a construction permits the cover to be raised from the body, without exposing the contents of the box, until the su plemental cover has been withdrawn.
till a further object of this invention is to provide in a carton having telescoping parts and a connecting portion, a simple one piece construction which is inexpensive to manufacture.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter more fully described,.and more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the practical embodiment shown in the accompan ing drawings forming a part of this speci cation and illustrating one of the applications of the invention, the above ob- ]8Ci)S are accomplished by providing a body portion, a telescoping cover therefor, and a central connecting portion of such a length, that said portion will overlie the .corresponding parts in the several views.
Figure is a perspective view of the box or carton in an open position with the parts arranged for display.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal view looking in the direction of the arrows and taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 3 showing the position pf the parts when the box is in a closed posiion.
3 is a transverse sectional view loole mg in the direction of the arrows and taken on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the cover removed from the body, but with the connecting portion covering the body.
F1g. 5 is a view showing a one piece stamping from which a box of this character may be made.
Fig. 6 is a view showing diagrammatically the position of the body and cover relative to the connecting portion.
With reference to the drawings showing as for example one practical embodiment of the invention, the box or carton is there shown ascomprising a body portion having a bottom 10, sides 11 and 12, and ends 18 and 14 extending upwardly from said bottom. A cover is provided which telescopingly fits the body, and an intermediate connecting portion 15 is provided for establishing a permanent connection between the body and the cover, the purpose of which will later be apparent. In the form shown, the cover is formed in a similar manner to the body, the said cover having a top 16, sides 17 and 18, and end portions 19 and 20 extending downwardly therefrom. The connecting portion 15 connecting the telescoping body and the cover portions, is preferably of a length greater than that of the box, so that-when in a closed position, as
shown in Fig. 2, the said connecting portion will overlie the body, functioning or serving as a supplemental covering therefor, thus permitting'the main cover to be raised from the body, as shown in Fig. 4, without exposing the commodity which may be contained within the body of the box. In order to permit the cover to completely telescope the body, the connectin portion should be provided with an additional portion 21 equal in length to the depth of the box. It is thus seen that when the cover has been appliedv to the body of. the box to telescope the same, that beginning at the upper edge 22 of the body, that a continuous covering extends completely around the body of the box.
The central connecting portion 15 is preferably arranged in such a manner relative 'to the body and the cover, that when the dotted line 24, after which the ends 13 and 14 would be folded upward upon the dottedlines'25. The sides 11 and Marc formed by bending upon the line 26, againbending the said bent portion upward upon the line 27, and inserting the turned edge 28 under the tongue or tab portions 29. The cover is formed by folding the other end portion in a manner similar to that already described for the body portion, but on the opposite side of the connecting member 15. It is to be understood however that this invention is not limited to the exact manner in which the body and cover of the box is formed, the essential feature being that a connecting portion is provided between the two telescopically fitting parts, which portion may serve as a card integral with the box upon which the price or other suitable advertising material may be arranged.
Preferably, the connecting portion 15 is provided with a cut out portion 30 which may be of any suitable form, a transverse fold 31 being formed at the ends of the cut portion. By this means an attractive display box. is provided, and the connecting portion 15 is rendered more flexible in order that. the said part may be bent to. assume a proper position when the body and the top While a certain practical embodiment of f the invention has been shown and described herein, it is understood that various changes and modifications may be made thereof without departing from the spirit and scope of this invention. I
