Patented Feb. 13, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PAPER msn Application January 6. 1930. Serial No. 418,810
My invention relates to new and useful improvements in paper vessels and more particularly to a paper dish such as is adapted for but a singleuse and the primary object of the inven- 6 tion resides in the provision of a dish of the character described which may be cheaply made, thus allowing it to be destroyed after but a single use with but a little expense, but which will be of sufllcient strength to adapt it for the serving 1 and eating of the desired commodity.
Another object of the invention consists in the provision of a two-piece dish in which the bottom is of a separate piece from the body or wall, the bottom being of such a formation that it may be securely connected to the body or wall and have suflicient resiliency to prevent separation from the wall or body during the time that the commodity is being eaten from the dish.
With the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, my invention consists in the novel details of construction, and arrangement of parts, describedin the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and while I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of the invention, as they now appear to me, it will be understood that such changes may be made as will fall within the scope of the appended claims. I
1n the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation.
Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical section.
Fig. 3 is a bottom plan; and
Fig. 4 is a fragmental detail showing the manner in which the bottom is secured to the body or wall.
In the drawing 1 indicates the tapered body or wall formed from a single piece of material having its ends overlapped, as shown, at 2 and secured together by an adhesive. The upper end of the body or wall is rolled to provide the outwardly directed bead 3. The bottom is also formed from a single piece of material shaped to provide the central flat portion 4, the downwardly directed outwardly flared flange 5, and the upwardly directed outwardly flared flange 6, the flanges 5 and 6 forming a substanti ly v-shaped groove 7 therebetween, as shown re particularly in Figs. 2 and 4 of the drawing. The
upwardly directed flange 6 is of somewhat greater height than the downwardly directed flange 5 and the flare or taper thereof corresponds to the flare or taper of the wall or body 1. The flange 6 is secured tothe inner face oi the wall or body at the lower end thereof by a suitable adhesive and, as shown, the bottom of the groove 7 will be on a plane with or terminate at the bottom edge of the wall or body 1.
I wish to lay particular stress on the manner in which the bottom is formed and secured to the wall or body. It can be appreciated that in the formation of a two-piece vessel-of the character described it will be necessary to so secure the bottom to the wall or body that there will be no leakage and at the same time the bot- 55 tom must be so securely connected to the body or wall that the same will not be torn therefrom during the time that the commodity is being eaten with a spoon, fork, or other implement. By having the upwardly directed flange 6 flared to correspond with the flare or taper of the body or wall the same will snugly fit the inner face of the said body or wall without unnecessary buckling or overlapping. When the flange 6 is secured to the body or wall by the adhesive there 7 I will be little possibility of leakage. By forming the bottom with the groove 7, as described, there will be little if any strain on the flange 6 while the commodity is being eaten for any pressure on the bottom will cause the same to flex su.f-' ficiently to prevent the pulling away of the flange from the body or wall. I also secure special advantage in having the bottom of the groove 7 terminating on a plane with the bottom edge of the wall or body for when the dish or vessel is placed upon a suitable support the bottom edge of the groove 7 will contact therewith as will also the Y bottom edge of the wall or body.
Having fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A vessel of the character described which is readily destructible and adapted for but a single use including a body or wall portion of relatively thin flexible material such as paper, and a bottom of relatively thin flexible material such as paper secured therein, the bottom having an upturned flange connected to the inner face of the body or wall by an adhesive or the like and a free flexible intermediate portion providing a circumferentially extending groove to permit flexing of the bottom relative to the body or wall without breaking the connection between the flange ofthebottom and the body or wall when pressure is applied. 1 1
2. A service dish or container of the character described which is readily destructible and adapted for a. single use including a body or wall of relatively thin flexible material such as paper and as paper secured therein, said bottom being formed with a flat central portion having a downwardly directed flange, and an upwardly directed flange extending from the downwardly directed flange, the upwardly directed flange extending parallel with a face of the body or wall and adhesively connected thereto, the downwardly directed flange providing a free flexible intermediate portion permitting the bottom to be flexed relative to the body without breaking the connection between the body or wall and the bottom.
, or wall underpressure of a spoon or the like without breaking the connection between the body or wall and the bottom, the bottom of the 4. As a new article of manufacture, a service dish or container designed to have its contents removed by a fork, spoon or the like, the container comprising a side wall and a flexible paper bottom secured and sealed by adherence to said side wall, the form of the bottom and securing thereof to the side wall being such as to prevent impairment of the seal connection between the bottom and side wall comprising a flange on the bottom overlying and adhesively secured to the said wall, an elevated bottom portion substantially removed from the lower edge of the dish or container, and a free flexible intermediate portion connecting said elevated bottom portion and the securing flange whereby said elevated bottom portion and free intermediate portion may readily flex under pressure and prevent any tendency to tear the connection between the securing flange and the side wall such as would break the seal therebetween.
