Assieme waarneemt Pizohcfrsfi Y applicati@ fueampeir 14; 1920i.4 seriali -ntrsvagvezsf-f citizen.x of? the: United States, f residing @atvv Wyoming, 4in fthe county of Hamilton'. and Stat'-'f of Ohio,` have invented i certain y new* and useful-:Improvementsini PaperiGontaim ers, ofr which; the' fellow-ing is"A a specificae tion. i i

Myf'inve'ntion relates more particularly to a one piece paper top or bottom formed into an oblong or round cup shape, which is adapted to be inserted into and form the end of a paper shell or tube to which said 'cup shaped end is suitably glued or otherwise adhesively sealed and` given pressure.

The object of my invention is to provide a simple, strong, durable and economical top or bottom for a paper container.

My invention consists in a one piece paper or pulp head orl end or top or bottom of a paper or pulp container centrally dished with a projecting bead or rim and having its ed e inturned upon itself to form a lap.

y invention also consists in the details of construction and in the parts and combination and arrangement of parts as herein set forth and claimed.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a vertical section through a cylindrical head forming part of my invention;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view partly broken away of an oblong rectangular paper boX having its top and bottom provided with my novel heads.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view partly broken away of a cylindrical paper container embodying my invention;

Fig. 4 is a sectional view of modified form of head;

Fig. 5 is a sectional view of another modication.

In the embodiment of my invention as illustrated and which shows preferred constructions, the body or shell 1 or 1, as the case may be, is formed in any usual and well known manner into theshape shown. The head 2 or 2, is preferably dished inwardly to reinforce and strengthen it and to cause the containers when stacked upon each other to rest more firmly than otherwise. The head is formed with a projecting bead 3 or 3 by turning a portion of the head upon itself, and this bead is adapted to snugly fit and rest upon the end of shell 1 or 1 and if desired, to project slightly beyond the quae Surface er fsai'dfsheiimagneet ehe dea siredornamentiffinish Therheadf. isaalsefl provided with- 'an integral flanl ef'or: 4t' exa? tending fat an angle te4 tl'i'effrnain.y aitoffsaide head1l and' -ritsf edgel :is intulrnedlupon'iitselfftf form a strengthening and finishing' lap 52"; The f peculiar formation' o'fth'e-fheadeas ithuis described, :isfobtain'ed byf meansro'fa suitab'lef'f diesf andi# t'o'olsgvnet'V formi-ngir a part ofgthe present invention. The head, when formed as illustrated and described, produces a very strong structure which, when its flanged and beaded surface abutting the shell, is glued or otherwise adhesively secured thereto, forms a very substantial container.

These containers are particularly adapted for use as receptacles for powders, liquids and solids. When so used, one head may be secured in position and glued or otherwise secured to the shell, leaving the other end open'for receiving the contents. AWhen the container has been filled, the other head may be inserted and the container is then readyr foruse. If it is desired that the container be completely sealed after receiving the contents, the flanged and beaded surface which engages the shell, may be coated with adhesive material and inserted. If desired, suit# able pressure may be applied to the outer surface of the shell opposite flange4 or4 of the head to cause the head and shell to become very firmly united by the adhesive. Where very small containers are used or where especially heavy-and strong paper is em lo ed, the dish 2 or 2 may be omitted anc t e surface of the head formed flat. Likewise, when added strength is not required, the lap 5 -or 5 may be omitted as Vshown in Fig. 5. The word paper as used in the specification and claims includes paste board, fibre and the like.

' It will be apparent that my invention is capable 0f some modification without material departure from its scope orl spirit, as shown by the examples given. The shape ofthe container may be cylindrical or rectangular as shown or may be octagonal or any other desired shape, in which case the'shape of the head is modified to adapt itself to the shell, but the novel features ofI my invention are the same in any form of shell in which it may be used. y

What I claim as new.and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. An article of manufacture comprising a straight paper tube or shell having its head or end formed from a single piece of paper dished or stamped and crimped at its closed end to form a laterally projecting bead or rim and having its open end inturned upon itself to form a reinforcing and finishing lap, substantialy as set forth and for the purposes specified.

2. A paper head for paper containers having a laterally extending integrally formed bead projecting beyond the circumference of the tube, a transversely extending integrally formed flange, and a reinforcing and finishinO' lap inturned upon said flange, substantia ly as set forth and for the purposes specified.

3. A container comprising a paper tube or shell having its head or end formed from a single piece of paper dished or stamped and crimped at its closed end to form an elongated projecting bead or rim, said head having its open end inturned upon itself to form a lap, said head and shell being firmly bound together by an adhesive interposed therebetween and a pressure applied upon the surface of said shell adjacent the flange and bead of said head, substantially as set forth and for the purposes specified. 4f. An article of manufacture comprising a paper tube or shell having its head or end formed of a separate member from a single piece of paper dished or stamped inwardly and crimped at its closed end to form a straight bead or projecting rim and having its open end inturned upon itself to form a reinforcing and finishing lap, substantially as set forth and for the pur oses s ecilied.
