s nox appuoauon mea December 1s, im. seran no. 73,247.

vide a boxof the class described including a cover formed from a one piece blank.

A further object ofthe invention is `to provide a box of the class described having -inwardly inclined sides whereby a plurality of boxes may be packed one within another to save space in shipping and storing.

A further object of the'invention 1s to provide a knock down box-formedwith an inteparts in all of the views gral cover, the inner surface of whichmay be used for advertising matter, thereby adapting the box for display purposes. l

A furthersobject of the invention is to provide a paper box in which the cover 'may be firmly held in its closed position.

A further object of the invention is to provide a box of the class described which is of very simple construction,` is inexpensive to manufacture, is easily assembled, is strong and durable, and is well adapted for the purposes described.

`With the above and other objects in view the invention consists of the improved box, and its parts and combinations as setforth in the claims, and all equivalentsthereof.

Inthe accompanying drawing in which the f same reference characters indicatefthe same Fig. l is a plan view of the box blank;

Fig. 2 is a front view of the box as as-v sembled; and

. Fig. 3 is an end view thereof.

Referring vnow more particularly to the drawing it will appear that the numeral 5 indicates the box blank which is shaped as( shown and formed with scored fold lines 6, 7, 8, 9 10, 1 1-,12,13,14, 15,16, 17, 18 andas, the fold lines6, 7, 8 and 9 defining a front portion 20, a bottom 21, a rearportion 22, a top 23, and

End iiaps 25 and 26 of angular shape ex: tend outwardly from the scored lines 18 and 19, and 14 and 15 of the front 2O and the rear 22, while inwardly tapered ends 27 are defined from the bottom 21 by the lines 16 and 17. -A pair of tongues 28 of curved formation extend from each end of the top portion 23. V-shaped notches 29 are cut in the outer edge of the front portion 20 to form a pair of ips 30.

Tov form the finished box from the blank, the ends 27 are bent up,as are also the front 2O and the rear 22. The end iaps 25 and 26 at each end are/overlapped and 'secured together by ins or rivets 31. Then, to close the cover t 1e tongues 28 at each end are inserted into the pockets formed betweenf the ends 27- and the flaps 25 and 26,'as shown in Fig. 3. The front of the cover is lsecured in closed position by inserting the front vHap 24s inwardly of the top edge of the front portion 20 and passing the lips 30 into slits 32 formed therefor in the portion 24,' as shown in Fi 2.

It will then be seen that the box W en closed is very tight and as it is preferably formed of waxed or waterproof material, it is especially suited for shipping smoked sh and the like. The boxes may either be shipped as blanks, or folded into shape and packed one within the other with the covers open, this being permitted by the tapered construction of the boxes. The box may also be used for display purposes with the cover open and advertising matter delineated on the inner surfacethereof. Furthermor the box is formed from a one piece blank, 1s of very simple and novel construction and is well adapted for the purposes described.

What I claim as my invention is: A non-folding box composed of asin le piece of material, having a bottom, inwar y tapered ends and sides extending therefrom,

al top extending from the rear side, a iap joining the front 'edge of the top, flaps extending from both sides over-la ping each other and the ends, the up er edges of the' flaps being inwardly curve staples extendingV through the over-lapped portions of said iaps, a pair of divided ckets being formed at each end between the aps and the box ends, the curved edges of said flaps facilitating the opening-of said pockets, and a pair of separatedjtongues extending from each end portion of the cover for lodgment in pairs of Y said pockets.

Intestimony whereof, I affix my signature. i
