This invention relatesV to containers for goods and the like, and has for one object to provide a container ofV which a phonograph-- record forms acompleting part.
A nother oi which a plionograpli-record forms an eX- terior ornzunentalpart.
Afuiotlier object is' to provide a container V as mentioned above, in which the record is removable for playing on a phonograph, and' may be restored to form apart of the container after playing.
@ther objects of the invention will appear as the description proceeds Vand while herein minute details ot the invention are described. the invention is not limited to these, since many and various changes may be made without departing from the scope of the invention as claimed.
.ln the accompanying' drawing showing by wav ot example two of many possible embodiments oft'th'e invention` i.'is a perspective view of one form the container, p
F 2 is a central vertical sectional view ef the same;
Fig. 3 is plan of another form of container; and Fig. 11- is line 1f-4 of Fig. 3,
My improved container of Figs. 1 and :2 comprises. in combination, a round card boa fl box having vertical. walls 6, land a Vcover 7 for said box; though it is noted that the invention. as claimed is not limited to containers of the shape shown, or to boxes.
The cover comprises a top wall consisting of an ordinary round doubleor single laced phonograph record 8 with f soundrecord grooves 9 therein, suitable for playing on a phonograph, which record may relate to the contents of the container or may comprise any kind of record or sound producing groove. The side-walls 12 for said cover are pro-vided with an inturned upper edge Harige 13 en gaging over the edge of the record, and with an iii-pressed rib 14 engaging beneath the edge of the' Vrecord and yield-1y Objectis tov provide a container turned upper-edge flange 13 a itragmental section taken on ably retaining the record in place, whereby Vthe recordV may be downwardly removed from the cover side-walls 12 for playing the record on a phonograph.
In the form of invention shown in Fig. 3,
the top wall is square and consists of a base" 15 et a squared portion of card-board, thick paper or other material such, for instance, `as a page from the well, known Bubble Books. On such page, as a base, is mounted a phonograph record 16 or disk of record material.

llihen the container is assembled, as in Fig. 1. it is used as a container for any de sired class of goods or articles, and is renplaying. the record may be restored to the position of Figs. 1 and 2. After use, the box and cover-sidewalls may, it desired, be 'thrown away and the record alone retained in ones collection. i
