OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF INDIANA.
A BOTTLE WBAPPER.
Application led February 27, l1922. Serial No. 539,351.
The invention relates to bottle wrappers One object of the invention is to provide an improved wrapper for bottles and the like in which va fly-sheet and a corrugated cushion sheet are combined with flaps which are adapted to form end closures for the package. In Wrappers of this type, it has heretofore been common practice tov use corrugated end closing sheets which were separate from the wrapper and this retarded the packaging of the goods, because the end pieces had to`be Separately handled. By forming the flaps on the corrugated hner, the articles can bewrapped with greater facility. y
A further object of the invention is to provide an improved wrapper for bottles and the like which is simple in construction, can be produced at a low cost and serves to efficiently protect an article from breakage.
The invention consists in the several novel features hereinafter set forth and more particularly defined by claims at the conclusion hereof.
In the drawings: Fig. 1 is a plan of a wrapper embodying the invention. Fig. 2 is a plan section on line 2-2 of Fig. 3, the wrapper being shown folded to fit around a bottle before the .margins of the fly-sheet have been folded to close the endsof the package. Fig. 3 is a vertical section on line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a side elevation.
The invention is exemplified in a wrapper comprising a fly sheet 6, usually of stout flexible paper, adapted to form an outer covering and a sheet ofy single-faced corrugated board whichA consisted of a corrugated sheet 7 and a liner 7 glued in usual manner to the back thereof and secured to the flysheet by a suitable adhesive on lines 8. The corrugated sheet 7 and its liner each comprise a main or body portion 9 cut to a height corresponding to the height of the bottle or article to be wrapped and of siiilicient width to extend around or encircle the bottle, a pair of bottom flaps 10 and a pair of top flaps 11 which are integrall formed with the body 9. The corrugate sheet is creased on the lines of juncture between lthe flaps and the body portion to render the flaps foldable transversely to their length. The flaps are semi-circular and the pairs at the top and bottom are adapted to form, when fol ed inwardly on said lines,
end or top and bottom protecting walls for -14 of the fly-sheet are extended the bottle. That is to say, when the semicircular flaps 10 of the bottom are folded inwardly, their straight margins will meet to forni a bottom protection for the bottle and the flaps 11 will perform a similar function for the top of the bottle. 'lhe fly-sheet 6 has one of its .ends coter-minous with the corrugated sheet 7 and its other end is extended beyond the corrugated sheet to form an extension 12 which is adapted to overlap the other end and is usually provided with an adhesive for securing it around the bottle or article.l The top and bottom 4mar ins 13 and yond the margins of the body to form flexible flaps or portions which are folded inwardly upon the outer sides of the flaps 10 and 11 respectivel ly to form an outer covering or seal for the ends of the package and may be secured in closed position by an adhesive or label if desired.
The invention exem lilies a wrapper for bottles and other artic es composed of a flysheet and a corrugated cushioning sheet or liner which are secured together and corrugated end flaps which are connected or integral with the cushioning sheet. As a result of providing a wrapper of this character, the work of wrapping is greatly faciliated over wrappers in which separate sheets of corrugated board are used to protect the ends of the bottle or article.
The invention is not to be understood as restricted to the details set forth, since these may be modified withinthe scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is z- 1. A wrapper for bottles and the like coinprising a fly-sheetadapted to extend around a bottle or other article, a cushion board comprising a corrugated sheet and a facing sheet on one side thereof secured to the fly sheet, the corrugated and facing sheets having integral portions respectively to extend around the bottle or article, and corrugated end flaps integrally formed with thecorrugated sheet and ,foldable transversely therep10, the ily-sheet beingextended to cover the aps.
2. A wrapper for bottlesI and the like oomprising a fly-sheet, a one-piece cushion sheet formed of single-faced corrugated board and having the fece thereof secured to the ysheet, said cushion sheet and iiy sheet being adapted to extend around a bottle or other article,- and semicireular lcorrugated end 5 iaps integrally formed with the cushion -sheet and foldable transversely thereto, the
bottom and top of the iiy-sheet being coterminous with the outer ends of the end iaps and ada ted to cover the flaps when the latter are 1n their folded ositlon. 10
