' I CONTAINER Application filed October 8, 1 930. Serial Fe. 487,249.
It is amon the objects of my invention to provide a ispensing container which will inclose the paper roll and keep it clean, free from dust and other foreign matter. 'A further object is to provide a container which may be readily reloaded and from which the core of the exhausted rolls may be readily withdrawn. A further object is to provide a container wherein the free edge or end of the paper roll may be readily grasped so that the paper may be readily w thdrawn from the container. A further ob ect is to provide a novel and inexpensive means for supporting the paper within the container.-
A further and more specific object is to form a container of pressed metal having integrally formed walls and roll supporting parts. A further object is to provlde a container adapted to be secured to a wall surface having a substantially wholly-open bottom to permit ready access-to the free end of the paper and havm a downwardly facing cutting edge along w ich desired lengths of paper may be torn after having beenvwithdrawn from the container.
Other objects will appear from the following detailed description-of a preferred form of my invention along with certain modifications thereof. The essential characteristics are summarized in the claims.
In the drawing, Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the container attached to a wall surillustrates another form of paper roll in-.
tended to be used in a modified form of the container; Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the interior of the container showing principally the end wall construction; Fig. 5 is a section taken along the line 55 of Fig. 4; Figs. 6, 8 and 10 are views similar to Fig. 4
showing modified forms of end wall con-' structions; Figs. 7, 9 and 11 are sectional views taken along the.lines 7- 7, 9-9 and 11l 1 of Figs. 6, 8 and 10 respectively.
' Referring to the drawing, I have illus trated my container G having a swingable 11d 1, a front wall 2, and end walls 3 and 4 pass. 'A roll of paper P is lodged within the contalner in a position so that the free end of the roll 7 extends downwardly adjacent the front wall whereby it may be torn at any desired length along the lower edge of the front-wall 8 as shown at 10.
The lid is preferably pivotally mounted in the upper rear corners of the end walls as the insertion of the paper rolls. The container is bottomless so that the free end of the paper roll may be readily grasped from the underside of the container and -easily withdrawn therefrom, Means to be presently described support the roll and hold it in, operative position. Generally stated, this much of this construction isdescribed and claimed in my copending application, Serial No. 485,924, filed Oct. 2, 1930, now Patent 1,905,562, issued Apr. 25, 1933.
Referring more particularly to Figs. 4 and 5, I show the interior of the end wall construction wherein a part of the lowermost portion of the end wall is bent inwardly to form a lip or cradle 15 for engagmg the periphery of the'lower-side of the paper roll. The lip 15 is integrally joined with the end wall between about the points 16, 17 and is sheared thereon and turned upwardly as at 18 and 19, whereby the roll is held in a cradle like construction at both ends and whereby the upturned ends of the lips 18 and 19- center the roll fore and aft of the container. It is to be noted that the forward end of the lip or cradle 15 is spaced away from the front wall of the container to permit the free edge of the paper secured to a wall surface by such means as ,screws' 5.- The end walls have. outwardly turned ears 6 through which the screws 5 roll to pass between the front'wall and the of the that the paper roll lies 1n contact the front wall of thecontainer. According to my invention, however, the forward. end
of the lip is spaced from the front wall to permit the downward withdrawal of paper from the roll.. In both of .the foregoing arrangements the roll of 'p-aper P may be such as illustrated in Fig. 2, having its core same length as the width ofthe paper whereby the end of the roll lies flush and loosely contacting" with the. surface of he end wall.
If it be desired a use wt of a er having a core extending to a greater length than the width of the paper as shown at P.
in Fig. 3, then my invention is adapted to dispense paper from such rolls and to.that end I have provided end wall constructions as illustrated in Figs. 8 to 11] inclusive wherein the cradlesorlips are disposed at a higher elevation'in'the end wall and are intended to formbearing supports for the outwardly extending ends of the core of the 7 roll.
- Thus in Figs. 8 and 9 a pair of lips 21 and 22 are spaced upwardly from the bottom edge of the end wall and are particularly adapted to support the end of the core It will be noted that these lips both are inclined downwardly toward the middle of the end wall and form between them a cradlefor supporting the end of the core of the roll. In Figs. 10 and 11 a lip 23, similar to the lip 15 of Fig. 4, is
shown as being formed. of a part punched and turned inwardly from a portion of the end wall spaced above the bottom.- thereof. This lip in turn forms a cradle adapted to support the core of the roll similar to th roll P mentioned above.
From the foregoing it will be seenthat I have provided a rugged and economical container for use is dispensing paper from rolls; that the container may be very readily loaded with a fresh roll; that the unitary bearing or cradle construction lends itself to economical manufacture and production and by reason of the bottomless feature of the container it permits the ready withdrawal and dispensation of the paper. While modifications and changes may occur to those skilled in the art and while I have illustrated and described a preferred form of my invention and certain modifications thereof, I do not care to be specifically limited thereto or in any manner other than by the claims appended hereto.
1. A dispensing container for a paper roll adapted to be attached to a wall surface having afront wall and integrally formed and walls, said end walls having inturned lips in the lower portions theroi compris engaging the exterior surface of the ,ends
thereof, said lips. being spaced from thesaid frontv wall to permit the passage of paper between the edges of the lips and said front wall, and'said lips being inclined downwardly and forwardly to hold said roll of paper in contact with'said front wall..
1 2. A dispensing container for a paper roll adapted to be attached to a wall surface having a front wall and integrally formed end walls, said end walls having inturned lips in the lower portions thereof comprising the sole support for the paper roll and engaging the exterior surface of the ends thereof, and said lips being ining the sole support for the paper roll and clined downwardly and forwardly to hold" said roll of paper in contact with said front .wall, and-said front wall having a cutting edge along the lowermost 3.
