PACKING AND DISPLAY BOX Filed Aug 8, 1932 I 1 [I I I I 5 17 X9 INVENTORS fM/v/r 1/ 400/5 81a; 1400/6 ATTORiGEY Patented Feb. 28, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT oFFicE FRANK J. ADDIS AND PAUL P. AID'DIS, F BROOKLYN, NEW YORK PACKING- AND DISPLAY BOX Application filed August 8, 1932. Serial No. 627,828.

This invention relates to boxes for use in packing and displaying articles of merchandise of various kinds and classes, and the object of the invention is to provide an article of manufacture of the class described, consisting of an outer box part open at opposite ends and an inner article mounting and supporting part which fits snugly in the first named part and includes a bottom wall structure for closing the bottom of the first box part; a further object being to provide a box of the class described wherein the box parts have registering apertures in the side walls thereof through which articles supported in the box are visible, some of said articles being visible through the upper open end of the outer box part and a sheet of transparent material covering the articles and openings of the box to protect the same against dust and moisture and yet not interfere with the visibility of said article; a further object being to provide means for supporting articles within the inner box part to expose the same through the openings formed therein; a still further object being to pro- .vide a box of the class described wherein the inner box part is formed from a single rectangular strip of material having a series of folds therein, whereby said sheet will form, of said box part, top, bottom and intermediate horizontal walls and side walls, the top and intermediate walls having means whereby pins or rods of certain articles mounted in the box may be passed therethrough at predetermined intervals and supported therein; and with these and other objects in view the invention consists in a packing and display box of the class specified which is simple in construction, efiicient in use and which is constructed as hereinafter described and claimed.

The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accom-.

panying drawing forms a part, in which the separate parts of our improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views, and in which i Fig. 1 is a side and sectional View of a box made according to the invention showing articles packed and displayed therein.

Fig. 2 is a section on the line 2 2 of Fig.1.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the box parts employed, detached, and illustrating articles in position for mounting therein; and

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the blank from which the box part shown in Fig. 3 is formed.

side walls 7-7a thereof are provided with openings 8-82 folded adjacent to the end of the box so as to register with corresponding .openings in the inner box part. It is also 7 preferred that the upper edges of the side and end walls of the box part 5 be scalloped, as seen at 9, to give an ornamental appearance thereto.

The box part 6 is made from a rectangular 7 sheet of cardboard of the form indicated at 641, in Fig. 4 of the drawing,'and this sheet is folded on the score lines 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 to form wall parts 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21

' and 22. The wall parts 16 and 18 constitute the side walls of the box part 6 and have rectangular openings 16a18a therein which register with the openings 8-8a of the box part 5. The part 17 forms the top wall of box part 6 and has longitudinally arranged and spaced slits 23 arranged over correspondingly spaced X-cuts 24 in the part 21, which constitutes an intermediate wall part arranged above the bottom wall part 19. The sections 20 and 22 lie upon and serve to reinforce the walls 16 and 18 respectively, as well as to maintain the several walls of the box part 6 in proper position. To aid in accomplishing this result, a tongue 25 is cut from the part 18 and rests over the intermediate wall 21 as clearly seen in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawing.

We also employ two other article supporting members 26 and 27, the member 26 being of channel cross sectional form adapted toreceive and support two groups or bunches of wax candles 28 visible through the openings 16a and 8 respectively; whereas the member 27 is in the form of a strip upon which decorative elements 29, such for example as flowers, are arranged, the latter being visible through the openings 18a and 8a respectively v of the separate box parts.

The box herein described is designed primarily for use in packing, shipping and displaying what are known as candle holders 30, as well as the candles for use in connection with the holders and decorative members kindred to the other articles, all of the articles in question bein commonly employed in the decoration of ca es and like confections. It will be understood, at this time, that while a specific use is disclosed, the box construction can be used in conjunction with the packing-and displaying of other articles of merchandise.

The candle holders 30 are of conventional form and include floral heads 31 in which the candles are supported and supporting rods or pins 32 extending therefrom.

In packing the boxes for shipment after the box part 5 is made, the sheet 6a is folded on the score lines 10 to 15 consecutively, in one series of folds performed in one direction to produce the result shown in Fig. 3, that is to say, it is not essential to fold a sheet first in one direction and then in an opposite direction in accomplishing the desired result. In the operation of folding, the ton e 25 is forced out so as to be positioned a ve the wall 21 with the part 6 in the position shown in Fig. 3. The rods or pins 32 of the holder 30 are passed downwardly through the slits 23, and then through the X-cuts 24 to support a sheet of transparent material 33, such as the holders in connection with the part 6,

after which the member 26, with the candles 28 therein, is placed in one side of the part 6 between the walls 17 and 21 with the candles directed downwardly to be visible through the opening 16a, then the member-27 is arranged at the other side of the part 6 so that the decorative flowers 29 will be visible through the openin s 1811, in the manner illustrated in Fig. 2 o the drawing.

With the parts thus assembled and packed,

cellophane or glassine paper is placed over the top of the candle holders and downwardly over the side walls 16 and 18 of the box part 6, as well as'over the ends thereof, and the box part with the. sheet 33 thereon is then passed upwardly through the bottom of the ox part 5 until the bottom wall 19 comes flush with the lower edges of the side walls 77a of the box part5, this completes the operation of packing the articles in the box.

It will be understood that a number of the boxes packed,as above stated, may be placed in a container and thus shipped to the retailer who will remove the boxes from the container parent sheet 33 covers and forms windows for the latter openings, and also remains over the candle holders so as to maintain the same in a dustproof and sanitary condition.

It will also be understood that by providing the bottom wall 19 to the part 6, the rods or pins 32, which are usually composed of metal, are also protected from the elements and prevent rusting thereof, and this bottom wall also aids in preventing dust from entering the box. I

. It will also be apparent that in addition-to forming a support for the various articles, the box part 6, by virtue of its construction, also serves toreinforce and strengthen the box part 5, preventing the crushing of the articles packed therein, this being apparent from the fact that three transverse wall members 17, 19 and 21 are employed.

It will be understood that our invention is not necessarily limited to the use of the openings in the side walls of the innerand outer box parts 5 and 6, nor is it essential to pack the candles 28 and decorative elements 29 in the complete box. At the same time, it will also be ap arent that other or similar articles may a so be mounted and packed within the box part 6 between the walls 19 and 21, and the latter may or may not be displayed through the side walls of the box parts 5 and 6.

It will be understood that various other changes in and modifications of the construction herein shown and described may be made within .the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of ,our invention or sacrificing its advantages.

whatwe claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
