UNITED STATES i 1,516,090 PATENT OFFICE.-

BENJAMIN L. GARY, 0F NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, AND JOSEPH F. MEEHAN, 0F NEW YORK, N. Y. i

CARTON.

Application led March r28, 1923, Serial No. 628,174. Renewed October 3, 1924.

To all whom t may concern:

. Be it known that we,BENJAMIN L. GARY, a citizen of the United States, anda resident of the city of Newark, county Vof Essex, and State of New Jersey, and JOSEPH F. MEEHAN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the borough of Bronx, county of Bronx, city and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cartons, of which the following is a specification suflieient to enable others skilled in the art to which the invention appertains to utilize the same.

While our improvements are applicable to foldable and strippable boxes or containers generally, they are designed especially for use for temporarily retaining goods of a plastic or semi-plastic nature intended for immediate consumption or use, or substantially so, as for instance icc cream, marshmallow whip, or similar edible substances rctailed in relatively small quantities,-the invention consisting in the specific construction and arrangement of parts herein described and claimed, and distinctive features being the formation of the foldable receptacle in such manner as to provide the same, when set up for use, with anon-leakable bottom; the method of reinforcing and prescribing the lines of severance or clearage, etc.-all as hereinafter fully set forth.

In the accompanying drawings we exemplify a practical embodiment of the essential features of our invention as an article of manufacture, although we do not restrict ourselves'to the identica] form and constructiony of parts shown, since modifications in minor details may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and intent of this invention in this respect.

With this understanding,

Fig. 1, represents a perspectiveview of our improved carton, closed;

Fig. 2, represents a perspective view of the container as stripped in part to afford convenient access to the contents thereof;

Fig. 3, is a. perspective view .of the lower extremity of the container, inverted, illustrating the method of folding in and formin the non-leakable bottom;

ig. 4, is a perspective view of lthe inverted lower extremity of the container, closed;

Fig. 5, is a section taken upon plane of line 5 5, Fig. 4;

Fig. 6, is a plan view, on a smaller scale,

showing the shape of the carton blank before setting up for use;

Fig.' 7, is a detail view, upon an enlarged scale, illustrating the formation and arrangement of the diagonally convergent reinforcement corrugations andthe scored line of severance with lateral incisions Fig. 8, is a perspective view of the lower end of our container, broken away in part to show internal arrangement of parts.

The box or carton C,'consists primarily of a blank substantially such as indicated in Fig. 6, which is designed for a container whlch is square in transverse section as illustrated in the other figures of the drawing,

although we do not necessaril limit ourselves to this rectangular con guration in cross section in so far as the scored lines of severance are concerned.` This rectangular construction is, however preferable for general use, especially where a non-leakable bottom 1s a desideratum, as when the receptacle is designed as a vendible package of ice cream or other meltable substance.

Thus the blank indicated in Fig. 6, of the drawings, is formed with the four side panels1, 2, 3, and 4, the lines's, s, s, s,`of corner folds being perforated or scored to facilitate stripping as indicated in Fig. 2, in order to expose the contents of the container as required for use. The panels 1 and 3, are formed with the upper flaps 11 and 33, and the panels 2 and 4, with the interlocking tongues 22 and 24, to constitute the upper end closure means in a manner well known in the art. 5 is the longitudinal side flange by means of which the panels 1 and 4, are attached, also in a manner well known in the art.

The lower end of the panel 4, is formed with an inner bottom flap 40, having marginal flangesl 41, 42, and 43, which in the up folding of the blank, are inturned to contact with and seal the inner lower surfaces or edges of the panels 1, 2, and 3, the end flap 23, on the side panel 2, overlapping said sealing flap 40, and being in turn secured in positiony by the interlocking tongues 12 and 13, of the side panels 1 and 3. It will be seen in this connection that the main novelty in this construction of nonleakable bottom consists in the provision of the intnrnable flanges 41, 42, and 43, on the inner or false bottom 40, of the side panel 4, by means of which the lower edges of the side panels i, 2, and 3, are closed and sealed, the internal pressure of the contents of the container tending to perfect and maintain this non-leakage seal between the surfaces in contactual engagement. y rlhe corner lines ot' severance s, s, s, s, are embossed, scored or scribed for substantially the full len h of the panels 1, 2, 3, and 4f, and are Han ed by convergent diagonal incisionsz' z', which yfacilitate the stripping of the edges of the sidepanels l, 2, 3, and 4, one from another.

lit is to be noted that these lines of incision z', are convergent downward, so as to yield readily in that direction only, Without other- Wise Weakening'the corners of the holder. y a', r, -are reinforcing grooves or embossruents, also diagonally and convergently arranged as related to the prescribed lines of severance s, s; :and are designed to stilen and protect the corners of the receptacle against stress in any direction other than alon said prescribed' lines of severance.

at We claim as our invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is,

1. A carton of the character designated,

erance, and 'aslo formed with diagonal 'ref v Y Macnee inforcement embossments convergent to- Ward said prescribed. lines oit severance, substantially in the manner and for the `purpose set forth.

2. A carton of the character desi ated,

rectangular in cross section, and having the rectangular in cross section, having its angles scored to form prescribed lines of severance, also formed With diagonal reinforcement embossments convergent toward said prescribed lines of severance, said carton also having anon-leakable bottom consisting of an inner end sealing Hap formed with inturned ianges, an outer end tia and exterior locking tongues, substantiallf in the manner and for the purpose set forth.
