1 D. H. CLARK CONTAINER Filed Nov. 17. 1921 Patented May 20, 1924.



Application filed November 17, 1921. Serial No. 515,838.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DAVID H. CLARK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Orangebur in the county of Rockland and State of ew York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Containers, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to a container or receptacle for the distribution of various articles for sale and for use, and the principal object of the invention is the provision of a device of this character which may be cheaply and quickly made and assembled, and which when assembled with the articles enclosed therein makes a'neat and attractive and watertight.

A further object of the invention is to provide such a container which is of substantially ri 'id construction considering the parts used in its manufacture, so that the articles enclosed therein ,may be protected from crushing or like damage.

In the drawings forming part of this specification, and in which like reference numerals indicate like parts in the several viewsv F i 1 is a perspective view of the present articfe assembled for use;

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the parts before assembly; and

package, which is also air F i 3 is a cross-section through the as semb ed container.

While the present container is shown as of .cylindrical shape, such disclosure is for purposes of illustration only, since the container might well be square, octagonal, or of any other desired shape, particularly adapted for the articles to be contained therein. In the present instance the container comprises, and is made up of, two similar cylindrical discs 1 and 2, of paper, parchment, or cloth, or any other suitable material. The said discs may be cut from material in any desired manner, and in forming the container the two discs are placed on either side of an annulus 3, which is preferably of cardboardor like substance, the diameter of said annulus being substantially the same as, or slightly less than the diameter of the two discs 1 and 2. The annulus is of such width that it covers only a small portion of the periphery of the two discs, so that a space 4 will be formed between the inner faces of the two discs. Within this space are enclosed the goods to be contained and distributed therein, and such goods may be in the form of pills or pellets, powder, or any other desired material. When the material or articles are in the space 4, the two discs are united to the annulus at their pe riphery by means of adhesive, pressure or like means, one on either side of said annulus as desired, and the container is assembled. If desired the container may then be immersed in a parafiine bath to make the same air and waterproof, but this parafiining may be omitted as desired. The container is now ready for use or distribution, as the case may be, and the exterior faces of the container may contain suitable printed matter thereon.

The present container difl'ers from such articles formerly in use in that the annulus 3 forms a rigid skeleton upon which the container is assembled. The annulus reinforces the container at the ed es where the great= est strain will occur, an prevents distention of the container even though it is subjected to substantially rough usage. The container presents a neat and attractive appearance, particularly adapted for the distribution of samples of material, and by reason of its low cost of manufacture can be widely distributed at small expense.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A container consisting of two sheets ofsubstantially flexible material, and a relatively narrow annulus of stiffened material, interposed between said sheets at the edges tlereof to form reinforcing means for said e es.

5. A. container consisting of two sheets of substantially flexible material joined together at their edges, and a reinforcing means for said joined edges, said reinforcing means comprising an annulus of stiffened material, interposed between said sheets at the edges thereof.

In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature.
