UNITED STATES ELIE W. LABOMBARIDE, OF NASI'IUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE.

FOLDED BOX. AND PROCESS OF MAKING THE SAME.

Application filed March 3, 1921.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELIE W. LABOMBARDE, a citizen of the United States, andresident of Nashua, in the county of Hillsboro and State of New Hampshire, have invented a new and useful Folded Box and Process of Making the Same, of which the following is a specification.

One object of my invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive box but at the same time a durable one and another object is to construct a box having outside flaps in such a way that the flaps will be protected against any tendency to separate them from the walls with which they cooperate.

A feature of my invention is the provision of a wall formed to be substantially flush with the ends of the flaps and in the preferred form the wall has a depression or recess for this purpose.

Another feature is an offset formation to permit the flaps to swing neatly along the adjacent wall. I

Another feature is the structure by which one wall forms an abutment for another wall.

Other features will be pointed out below.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of abox embodying my invention;

Figure 2 is a plan of the blank on a smaller scale Figure 3 is a partial plan of said blank partially folded;

Figure 4C is a partial plan of the folded box;

Figure 5 is an edge view of the device of Figure 4;

Figure 6 isapartial section on line 66 of Figure 1;

Figure 7 is a partial plan of a modification- Figure 8 is a partial section similar to that of Figure 6;

Figure 9 \is a partial edge view of one wall of the box, the flap being omitted;

Figure 10 is an elevation of the reenforcing strip; and

Figure 11 is an end elevation thereof.

My box is preferably made from a blank of cardboard or similar material having a base A; a wall formed of portion A foldable at the scoring a and portion A foldable at the scoring a; a similar wall having portions A and A; another wall having a portion A foldable at a this portion having Serial No. 449,452.

flaps A and A each being pointed as I shown, said other wall comprising also portions A foldable at a and another wall comprising similar portions A and A and flaps A and A Port-ion A is cut through at 7) to receive the pointed end of flap A and at b to receive the end of flap A portion A being similarly out through at Z1 to receive the end of flap A and at 6 to receive the end of flap r Reenforoing strips are preferably used and each is connected by glue or otherwise with one flap and with the adjacent portion of its wall, each strip being preferably flat and made of very thin paper bent double at b b and enclosing a cord Z) of textile material, the ends projecting in Figure 10 but being cut off when the desired length of the strip as a whole is out 01f.

In Figures 7, 8 and 9 I show a modification in which the base D has side walls 0? and cl each of a single thickness the end wall being double as indicated at d d provided with flaps 01* and d The wall at is indented or pressed in in triangular form as indicated at cl to receive flap d which has a pointed end as described in connection with the other form, said end being glued within said indentation so that it is substantially flush with the other surface of the box. The wall 03 might be pressed outwardly and thus furnish protection for the pointed end and such form is within the broad contemplation of my invention. A similar indentation d is formed in wall d to receive flap d In making the form of Figures 1 to 6 the reenforcing strips are preferably applied and then portion A bent over on portion A and glued thereto and then both portions are moved into vertical position and similarly for portions A and A Portion A is folded over on portion A and glued to the latter and to the reenforcing strips, these portions being folded into vertical position and the flap A at its pointed end being bent into opening 5 and glued to the then outer surface of portion A said end being at its outer surface substantially flush with the then outer surface of portion A so that said end is protected. Flap A enters similarly into opening 7). Portions A and A are similarly folded and flap A fastened in opening Z) and flap A fastened in opening 6 In the form of Figures 7 to 9 the walls, d, cl, d and (Z are folded into vertical position and flap d enters indentation d and is glued there and similarly with (Z in indentation (Z It will be observed that portions A and A are off-set from the scoring a so that when portion A is folded over inwardly it may act as an'abutment for the adjacent edges of portions A A A and A the olfset being suflicient to provide room for portion A and also by permitting portions A and A to be bent in slightly from the vertical I am able to swing flap A clear of portions A A at the bend of the flap which is highly important in preserving the strength of the flap. Similar offsets are provided at the other corners.

It will be clear that the one advantage of my structure is that the ends of the flap are protected sothat if the box is pushed into a receptacle or cover the ends of the flaps will not become loosened or separated from the walls of the box.

One advantage of the pointed ends of the flaps is that the :box will ride easily into a receptacle with a minimum of resistance.

The use of reenforcing members is particularly important in connection with my flaps extending outside of the box because of the additional strain on the junction of the flaps with their respective walls.

What I claim is:

1. A box comprising a wall provided with a flap; and another wall having a portion substantially flush with the end of said flap, the latter being connected to said other wall adjacent to said portion.

2. A box comprising a wall provided with a flap; and another wall having a depression; said flap extending along outside of said other wall, entering said depression and being connected to said other wall.

3. A box comprising a wall provided with a flap; and another wall of double ply, the outer ply having an opening through it; said flap extending along outside of said other wall, extending through said opening and being connected to the inner ply of said other wall.

4. A box comprising a wall provided with a flap; a reenforcing strip connected to said wall and flap; and another wall having a portion whose outside is substantially flush with the end of said flap, the latter being connected to said other wall adjacent to said portion.

A box comprising a wall provided with a flap; a reenforcing stri connected to said wall and flap at the inside thereof and consisting of a flat member made of pa )er and a textile member enclosed by said paper member; and another wall having a portion whose outside is substantially flush with the end of said flap, the hitter extending at the outside of said other wall and being connected thereto adjacent to said portion.

6. A box comprising a Wall having a flap with a pointed end; and another wall having a depression adapted to correspond with said pointed end; said flap extending along outside of said other wall, entering said depreslsion and being connected to said other wal ELIE W. LABOMBARDE.
