s vide a box which may be Patented Feb. 16, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MOREY FREEDMAN AND LEWIS F. SAMPSON, OF ROXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS PASTEBOARD CARTON Application filed February 24, 1930. Serial No. 430,536.
This invention relates to boxes for contain"- ing and dispensing granular or powdered substances such as bath-salts or the like, and the principal object of the invention is to promade from a blank of sheet material such as cardboard or heavy paper and generally formed in' rectangular shape in accordance with common practice, and which has vertical walls formed with closure flaps adapted to be folded over the top of the box and having registering apertures, one of the iiaps having a rotatable disc provided with a relatively large opening in one segment and a plurality of smaller apertures in another segment, so that the disc may he turned to bring either the opening or the apertures into registration with the discharge openings in the underlying flaps, or to close such openings.
Further objects reside in the construction arrangement of the'box flaps which are hereinafter described and which are shown for the purpose of illustration in the accompanying drawings, in which: 7
Fig. 1 is a top view of a box constructed in accordance with this invention, the rotatable disc being positioned to close the discharge opening of the container;
Fig. 2 is a similar view, the rotatable disc being removed from its pivot which is shown in section;
Fig. 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Fig. 1, the disc having been rotated until its large opening is over the registeringdischarge openings of underlying flaps;
Fig. i is a plan view oiithe disc; and Fig. 5 is a top view of the box with'the closure flaps folded outwardly.
The container 6 is preferably made of cardboard in rectangular shape, and its vertical walls are provided with side flaps 7 and 8 and end flaps 9 and 10, which are arranged to be folded over the top of the container. flaps are preferably folded inwardly in the first instance and may lie in the same plane with their transverse edges approximately abutting each other at 11; whereas each of the side flaps is preferably equal to the size of the box top so that said flaps are folded upon 9 each other in overlapping relation over the The end (1 folded end flaps with side flaps 7 outermost. The folded flaps may be secured in closed position by a suitable adhesive or other fastening means. I
The outer flap 7 has a circular opening 12 therethrough, and the intermediate flap 8 is provided with a rotatable disc 13 pivoted upon its upper face, as by a staple 1e; and iii:-
ting Within the opening 12 of flap 7. Side flap 8 and the underlying end flap 9 have registering segmental openings 15 and 16 respectively disposed beneath the disc 13, and said disc has a complemental segmented opening 17, so that the contents of the container may be poured through openings 15, 16 and 1'? when the disc is rotated to bring its opening 17 over tlie regi)stering discharge openings 15 and 1G The disc also has a plurality of smaller apertures 18 arranged in another segment thereof whereby the box contents may be sift ed through said apertures after rotating the disc to carry the apertured segment over openings 15 and 16. A third segment of the disc is imperforate and when this segment overlies the discharge openings 15 and 16, the box is completely closed, as shown in Fig. 1, and its contents is protected from moisture, dirt or leakage.
e overlapping flaps of the box provide a firm and-durable closure at the box top, and by seating the rotatable disc within the circular opening of the outermost flap the edges of the disc are protected against damage durmg handling, the disc is less likely to be accidentally rotated, and the top of the container is substantially fiat and even. it is apparent that a box constructed as above described may be economically manufactured from inexpensive material, but it will be understood that the rotatable disc, as well as the body of the box, may be formed of more urable material, such as sheet metal, ii desired. It is also obvious that structural details may be varied without departing from the essence of this invention as defined in the following claims.
1. A box having overlapping top flaps, the outermost flap having a circular opening and the underlying ing, and a disc pivoted to said un erl mg flap and rotatable within the opening 0 the outermost flap, the disc having an opening and having an imperforate portion arranged alternatively to overlie said discharge opening upon rotation of the disc.
2. A box having overlapping top flaps, the outermost flap having a circular opening and the underlying flap having a discharge opening, and a disc pivoted to said underlying flap and rotatable within the opening of the outermost flap, the disc having an opening in one segment, a plurality of apertures in another segment, and a third imperforate segment, said segments being so arranged that either one may be positioned over said discharge opening upon rotation of the disc.
3. A box having a rectangular top iprovided with side and end flaps, the end aps being folded toward each other, one side flap being folded upon both of said end flaps, and the other side flap being folded over the first side flap and substantially covering the top of the box, one of the end flaps and the outer-overlying side flap having registering discharge openings, and the other and outer- -most side flap having a circular opening above the discharge openings, and a disc piv oted to the first side flap and rotatable in said circular opening, the disc having an opening in one segment, a plurality of apertures in another segment, and a third imperforate segment, said segments being so arranged that either one may be positioned over the registering discharge openings upon rotation of the disc.
In testimony whereof we aflix our signatures.
