March 13, 1928. 1,662,080 I u. s. SILBAR PAPER PACKAGE Filed April 19. 1926 package.

Patented Mar. 13, 1928.



Application filed April 19, 1926. Serial No. 102,829.

This invention relates to a paper package, being particularl concerned with a novel package of waxe paper which is of snnple construction, may e hung conveniently on the wall for easy access and from which one sheet of the waxed paper only may be removed at a time.

It is a primary object and purpose of the present invention to make a paper package of the character described whereby great economy in the use of the paper is attained, the sheets being covered and kept clean and sanitary at all times with the package. in sight and ready for use whenever desired.

For an understanding of the invention whereby these objects stated are attained as well as others not at this time specifically stated, reference may be had to the followk ing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which,

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of the package of my invention, apart of one corner being broken away to disclose the sheets within the covering envelope.

Fig. 2 is a front elevation with parts broken away showing the manner of disconnection of a sheet of paper from the Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse section through the upper part of the package shown in Figs. 1 and 2, and

Fig. 4 is a similar section through the lower part of the package looking in a downward direction.

Like reference characters refer to like parts in the several views of the drawing.

The waxed paper is enclosed in an envelope which has a front side 1 anda back 2 integrally connected at their vertical edges as indicated at 3. The lower end of the envelope is open, the back 2 being provided with a flap 4 which may be tucked into place at such lower end during the shipment of the package or until it is to be used. The upper end of the envelope is closed as indicated at 5, the-envelope being of rectangular form and elongated, usually about fifteen inches long and not quite seven inches wide, though, of course, these dimensions may be varied.

Adjacent the upper closed end of the envelope and Within the same a rectangular piece of cardboard 6 is disposed which is permanently secured to the envelope by a tubular rivet 7 passing through the front and back sides of said envelope and through cardboard a short distance below its upper edge by a suitable wire staple 9, the wlre being of small size. Accordingly when the cardboard with the waxed aper sheets attached thereto is placed wit in and secured to the envelope said sheets are completely enclosed and covered and kept free from dust or dirt. The rivet 7 passes through the Before the cardcardboard 6 above the upper edges of the paper. 7 A sheet of waxed paper is drawn from the envelope and as it is drawn the paper tears from the securing staple 9 leaving a narrow slit as indicated at 10, at each side. While I have shown but one of the staples 9, it is evident that any number may be used; and while a great number of packages have been made and'sold with only one staple 9 used, it is contemplated that two of the staples will be used, one at each side of the rivet 7 and located close to the upper edges of the sheets, as shownl in Fig. 2.

The package, as thus made, may be closed at its open end by tucking in the flap 4: as is evident and when it is sold the buyer thereof may hang the same on a nail or other equivalent support, passing through the rivet 7. In such case the open end of' the package will be downward and the flap 4 is turned so as to lie in the same plane with the rear side 2 of the envelope. @r if the flap has been sealed in place, the lower end of the envelope may be slit. To remove a sheet the hand is applied to the package as shown in Figs. 1 and 4. That is, the hand 10 is placed with the thumb 12 against the outer side of the front lot the envelope and the fingers indicated at 13 are inserted in the envelope between the back 2 and the sheet 8 lying next adjacent to said back. Then by pressing the thumb and fingers toward each other and exerting a downward pull the outermost sheet of the package and the one which lies against the inner sides of the envelope is drawn from the holding staple 9 downwardly and out of the open this manner.

This package has proved one of considerable merit.

It obviates the merchandising of waxed pa er in rolls which usually are placed in a rawer where the same become dirty and dusty and many times become crumpled so that considerable waste occurs, while the ordinary envelope containing sheets of Waxed paper free therein is also placed in a drawer and the attempted removal of one sheet usually results in the removal of several more' with consequent annoyance and waste. With my invention the envelope is suspended from the wall in a readily accessible position, is always at hand when needed, the paper is kept in a clean and sanitary condition and only so much of the paper is removed as is wanted. These features combine to make the invention one of great practical merit. The invention is defined in the appended claim and is to be considered comprehensive of all forms of structure coming within its scope.

I claim: X

In a construction of the class described, an elongated envelope having an open lower end, a member located within the envelope, permanent securing means passing through said envelope and the member near the upper ends of said envelope and member, a plurality of sheets of paper folded about a vertical edge of said member and located within the envelo e, and additional securing means passing tlirough said paper sheets and member near the upper en s of said sheets, the up er ends of said sheets bein located slight y below the first mentione securing means, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I afiix m signature.
