To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN N. Hasnune, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicage, county ofCook, State of Illinois, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Paint-Packages, and v declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, such aswill enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part'of this specification.
My invention has for its object to produce a cheap, simple and deposited upon'a palette of glass.
In packaging gold paint" it is necessaryto inclose it in such a way as to protect it against the entrance of dirt, preferably in hermetically sealed containers. However, the usual hermetically sealed containers are at the present time quite expensive and involve considerable labor in the making up of the packages. I have found that a satisfactory package may be made sufliciently tight without being hermetically sealed and am therefore enabled to produce a much cheaper and simpler package and one that can be produced with a smaller expenditure of labor than where hermetic sealing is sought. I
The various features of novelty whereby my invention is characterized will'hereinafter he pointed out with particularity in the claims; but, for a full understanding of my invention and of its objects and advantages, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of one of my improved packages in the process of being formed;
Fig. 2 is a View similar to Fig. 1, illustrating a later step in the process;
Fig. 3 is a plan view, on anenlarged scale, of the completed package; and
Fig. 4 is a section on a still larger scale, taken approximately on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
Referring to the drawing, 1 represents the usual glass palette on which isa disk or wafer, 2, of paint. Overlying the palette is a sheet, 3, preferably of celluloid, resting at its margins on the palette beyond the periphery of the disk or wafer of paint and dished upwardly at the center as indicated at 4, so that the portion thereof overlying novel package for in-' closing a mastic product, such as gold paint,

the paint will be held out of contacttherewith.
The container for the covered palette consists of a blank conveniently made of cardboard having a top section, 5, and a bottom section, 6, of the same size and shape as the palette, these two sections being connected by a narrow end section, 7, and there being a second narrow end section, 8,- beyond the section 6. The section 6 is also provided with narrow side flanges or sections, 9 and 10, corresponding in width to the sections 7 and 8. lfdesired, the bottom section, 5,may be provided with flanges, 11 and 12, which,
when the blank is folded will lie within and.
respectively beside the sides 9 and 10 of the carton. Fromthe sections 8, 9 and 10 extend flaps, 13, '14 and 15, respectively. Qn the free end of the bottom section, 5, 1s a narrow flange, 16,- having a width equal to the combined thicknesses of the palette and the material of which the cover is made. From the flange or section, 16, extends a flap, 17, similar inshape to thebottom section of the carton but slightly smaller, and having at its free edges flanges or flaps, 18, 19 and 20. The central portion of the member 17 is cut away so as to provide a hole, 21, approximately as large in diameter as the dished portion of the cover. 9
Each of'the members 5 to 20 is defined with respect to the adjacent member or members by .a'line of scoring; the scored lines between the member 17 and the members 18, 19 and 20 being on the opposite side of the blank from the other scored lines.
In producing a package, the covered palette is laid on the bottom section of the carton as illustrated in Fig. 1. The member 17 is then folded down on top of the palette into the position illustrated in Fig. 2. The 1010p section, 6, is then folded down and the aps the package as illustrated in Fig. 3, and are fastened down in any suitable way, preferably by pasting a small wafer, 22, on the package in such'a position that it will adhere to the flaps 13, 14 and 15 and to an exposed part of the bottom member, 5, of the package.
The arts are so proportioned that the flanges, 18, 19 and 20, fit between the top of the covered palette and the top wall of the package Or carton, pressing the member 17 down upon the flat marginal portions of the cover, 4, and holding this cover tightly i tively to the palette.
, against the palette. Furthermore, the mempressing the dished portion of the cover V against the paint.
The blank may conveniently, though not necessarily, be made out of a single piece of material produced by simple cutting and scoring operations, so as to make the cost of the blank very little greater than the cost of the material employed therein. In makingup the package, the labor involved is inconsiderable, there is little danger of disturbing the paint because the first step of folding the holder or spacer, 17, down upon the palette fixes the dished cover rela- Furthermore, when the package is completed, the paint is confined within a chamber which is substantially airtight, this being particularly the case during shipment in storage where a number of packages are laid one upon the other. In order to open the package all that it 18 necessary to do is to break the seal which, in the arrangement shown, is a simple wafer, and the carton can then be unfolded from the palette.
While I have illustrated and described with particularity only a single preferred form of my invention, I do not desire to be limited to the exact structural details thus illustrated and described; but intend to cover all forms and arrangements which come within the tcrmsemployed in the defi nitions of my invention constituting the appended claims.
I claim: r
1. A package comprising a palette, a Cover overlying the palette, a blank folded about said palette and its cover to form an inclosing carton therefor, means lying between the marginal portions of the cover and the overlying wall of the carton and pressing the cover againstthe palette, said cover be ing provided with three flaps adapted to be folded over the bottom face of the package, and a single wafer for holding said flaps against unfolding. 2. A package comprising a palette, a cover overlying the palette, a blank folded about said palette and its cover to form an inclosing carton therefor, means lying between the marginal portions of the cove and the overlying wall of the carton and pressing the cover against the palette, said cover being provided with three flaps adapt-v ed to be folded over the bottom face of the package and constructed and arranged so as to cause a portion of the bottom wall of the package and portions of each of said flaps to be exposed within a comparatively small area, and asingle wafer pasted over said exposed portions to seal the package.
3. In combination, a palette, a dished cover overlying the palette and resting thereon at its margins, and a blank adapted to be folded about said palette, said blank having a part adapted to be folded within the carton above said cover, said part having an opening throughvwhich the dished portion of said cover may project and mar ginal elements adapted to engagethe marginal portions of the cover and the overlying wall of the carton to press the cover against the palette.
4. In combination, a palette a dished cover overlying the palette and resting thereon at its IIIZtI lHS, and a blankadapted to be folded about said palette, said blank having a flap adapted to be folded within the carton above the said cover, and said flap having an open center sufiiciently large to permit the dished portion of the cover to project through the'same, and flanges at the edges to fit between the cover andthe overlying wall of the carton.
In testimony whereof, I sign this specifi-v cation.
