Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 1, 1921.
Application filed March 16, 1920. Serial No. 366,319.
To all whom may con cm:
Be it known that 1, JOHN a resident of Abercrombie, in the county of Richland and State of North Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvein Confection-Cone Carriers, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to carriers formed of paper or card-board for carrying cones containing ice-cream, and a purpose of my invention is the provision of a carrier of this character which efiectively supports a plurality of cones to permit of their being carried from place to place, and of their filling without the necessity of providing an additional means for supporting the carrier during such an operation as in the case of carriers heretofore proposed. Furthermore, my invention allows of the formation of a simple and efiicient carrier with the employment of a minimum quantity of paper or card-board, and with a waste of only a negligible quantity of material.
I will describe one form of cone carrier embodying my invention, and will then point out the novel features therein in claim.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure l is a view showing in perspective one form of cone'carrier embodying my invention,
Fig. 2 is a view showing another perspective of the carrier shown in Fig. 1, with a portion thereof broken away.
Fig. 3 is a plan viewof the blank of paper or card-board before the same is folded to form the carrier.
Similar reference characters refer to similar parts in each of theviews. 7
Referring specifically to the drawings and particularly to Fig. 3, B designates a blank which consists of a single length of cardboard or paper which is rectangular in formation. The blank B is provided adjacent its right-hand end with a plurality of perforations 15, each perforation being of a diameter to receive and support a single cone therein in the manner shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Adjacent the perforations the blank B is slit to provide a pair of tabs 16, which extend in the direction of the perforations. At a point substantially intermediate.
its ends, the blank is slit to provide another pair of tabs 17 which extend in the direction opposite to that of the tabs 16. Adjacent the J OHNSON, Bo'rNEN, a citizen of the United States, and
tabs 17 the blank is formed with a pair of ovate openings 18 which are designed for the reception of the fingers of the hand so that the portion of the blank between the two openings provides a handle forcarrying the carrier as a unit. At the left-hand end of the blank B, pointed tabs 19 are formed by slitting the material, such tabs extending in the direction of the openings 18.
To assemble the carrier from the blank shown in Fig. 3, the latter is bent at the points indicated in dash lines in Fig. 3 so as to provide a bottom 20, a front wall 21, a supporting partition 22, a lip 23, a rear wall 24 and a cover 25. As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the lip 23 extends downwardly and engages the tabs 17 whereby the supporting partition 22 is supported in horizontal position and in spaced parallel relation with the bottom 20. The space between these two walls is sufficient to allow of the proper supporting of the cones within the perforations 15, the bottom wall serving to prevent lateral displacement of the cones within the perforations. The cover 25 is extended over the partition 22 in the manner shown in Fig. l with its free end secured against and in overlapping relation to the front wall 21 by means of the tabs 19 and 16, it being understood that the tabs 19 are inserted into the openings provided by the tabs 16 in such manner that the upward displacement of the the dash lines between the openings 18 whereby, a handle is provided by means of which the carrier can be moved from place to place by the insertion of the fingers into the openings 18.
From the foregoing construction taken in conjunction with the accompariying drawings, it will be manifest that have provided a cone carrier which is of extremely simple construction and which can be readily formed from a blank of material, the only actual waste in the material being those portions which are cut from the blank to provide the openings 15 and 18. It will be further: noted that the supporting compartment 22 allows of the removal or displacement of the several. cones without the neces sity of providing additional supporting means for the carrier as a unit. The cover 25 10 scope of the appended claim.
What I claim is: A cone carrier formed from a single blank folded to provide a bottom, a front side Wall, a supporting partition, a lip, a rear Wall, and a cover, said front and rear Walls 1 and said cover being slit to provide tabs certain of which coact with said lip to support the partition in spaced relation to the bottom, and others of which coact with each other to secure the cover in overlie said partition, said partition and said cover belng formed with openings for the purpose described.
