This invention refers to improvements in Fig. 2 is a side view, on a somewhat smaller display paper boxes, and relates more parscale, of the box shown in Fig. 1-; ticularly to a double compartment foldable Fig. 3 shows a longitudinal view through box which is adaptedtobe made fromasingle the near end portion of the box, shown in piece of paper stock by cutting and scoring 1, taken on line 33 of said figure;-and
the stock at one operation, an whereby the ig. 4shows a a an view, on a reduced scale,
same may be shipped and stored in the flat of a paper blan such as the box shown in and readily folded in such amanner as to Figs. 1 and 2 is formed of, but being folded provide two opposed envelope-like compartto form the two separate compartments.
ments that are adapted tobelaid together, one As before suggested, the container shown upon the other to form a closure of the two in Fig. 1 comprises two separate compartand which, when opened up, may be dlsments A and B which are formed of a sm le played flat in alignment, or at an angle with piece of stock, and may be the same wi th respect to each other so that the contents of and len h, though the thickness of one is each compartment will be attractively exherein s own to be greater than that of the posed. other. This. obviously is not necessary as The blank for the box is prepared in such a they both may be of the same thickness and manner as'to be readily folded to form two likewise adapted to be folded and laid one oppositely disposed compartments that are upon thepther, as suggested by the illustraopen at their adjacent ends and their tog t1on of F1 .2,1n away to form aclosed packsides so as to permit them to be readily fille age. In t is respect, it should be borne in and their contents attractivel displayed. mind that the distance represented by the The two compartments maybe edseparatelines a-a should be equal to or slightly ly, as for instance with envelopes in one comgreater than that of the combined length of partment and writing paper in the other, or the ends b-b of the two compartments so whereby a single article, as for instance a that the intervening portion 0 of the back, ladys sweater, wherein after bein attrae lying between the score hnes M, will proptively folded, its upper rtion can tucked erly cover and close the ends of the two comin one compartment an' the lower ortion in partments when the same have been folded so the other compartment, after whic the two over or closed together.
compartments can be laid over, one upon the Referring to Fig. 4, it will be seen that the other to form a closed package. blank is somewhat longer than wide, the two The box therefore possesses many advanend rtions being substantially alike except tages from a practical standpoint, not only for ifierence in proportions in case the two 35 regarding the cost of the box in the flat and compartments A and B are to be diflerent in the cheapness with which it may be packed s ze. Each portion includes a back e, oppoand shi ped, but also the further feature of sitely disposed sides f-f that are adapted to being a apted for two different types of artifolded over and inward along the scored cles of an allied line, and also for holding lmes 9-40. to form opposite edges 11-4 of the. legal papers as in transit or for filing purfinished box, and inwardly disposed end porposes. tlons that align with each other when To these. and other ends, the invention con- .folde sists in the novel features and combinations Extensions 70-70 are formed in alignment of parts to be hereinafter described and with the edges 5- so that when the same are claimed. turned up with the sides f-f, said extensions In the, accompanying drawing: may also be disposed inward in alignment Fig. 1 shows a perspective view of my imwith each other to form an inner wall of the roved foldable box in an open position, as ends 5-} of the box, and over'which the mdisplaying of merchandise when contained closure member I is folded. This closure therein; member is scored as at m and n to adapt its edge portion 0 to be laid against the aligned extensions -70 and over upon the aligned end portions j-j, and further includes a tab end that is turned in on scored line 9 over the ee edges of the ends j-j and dlsposed Inside of the compartment in a way to lock the several members together.
When a blank, as shown in Fig. 4, is folded, as above explained, there is formed a box having two compartments that may be used singl as for separate articles, or can be used joint y as one container for holding a single garment that is adapted to be fol ed across its middle portion. In both instances the contents can be attractively displayed in the box when opened, and properly enclosed and protected when the two compartments are folded together.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A folding box comprising two foldable members connected to ether by a closure portion, each of said fol able members comprising a back, oppositely disposed sides including creased edge portions adapted to be folded and disposed inward in alignment toward each other, extensions in alignment with each edge portion and also ada ted to be folded and disposed inward in allgnment with each other, the creased edge ortions of one member bein wider than t ose of the other member to orm a larger compartment of one foldable member than the other, a closure member scored to fold over the said extensions when the latter are disposed inward in alignment and having an elgd flap that is laid over t e aligned edges 0 form compartments open upon their adjacent inner ends and top portions, and adapted to be closed when laid together.
2. A folding box comprising two foldable members connected toget er by a closure portion, each of said foldable members com rising a back, oppositely disposedfoldable sides, including creased e ge portions, adapted to be folded and disposed inward in alignment toward each other, extensions in alignment with each edge portion, the two aligned extensions on each side of the two integral foldable members being disposed in opposite directions and longitudinally of the said integral foldable members, a closure member scored to fold over the said extensions when the latter are disposed inward in alignment, and having an end flap that is laid over the aligned edges of the inwardly disposed aligned sides and bracing said extensions to form compartments open upon their adjacent inner ends and top portions, and adapted to be closed when laid together.
3. A folding box consisting of two integral foldable members from which two aligned compartments are formed, the top the inwardly disposed aligned sides to and opposite adjacent portions of said compartments bein open and adapted to be closed when fold over upon each other, the two members bein connected by an end closure portion, eacli member com risinga back having oppositel disposed oldab e sides, includm crease edge portions, adapted to be f0 ded and dis inward in alignment toward each other, an extension on each foldable side in al' ment with the edge portions, the two aligned extensions on each side of the two inte al foldable members being of the same widt as the edge portions from which they extend and disposed in opposite directions and longitudinally of the said integral foldable members, and ada ted to be folded and disposed inward in a ignment with each other, a closure member scored to fold inward toward that of a similar member and over the said extensions when the latter are disposed inward in alignment, and having an end flap adapted to be bent in over the aligned edges of the inwardly disposed aligned sides to retain them in lace, to brace said extensions and to form 1i e compartments open upon their adjacent inner ends and top portions, and closed upon their sides and outer ends and adapted to form a closed foldable box when laid to ther.
