L. KLEBANOW BOTTLE COLLAR OR TAG Aug. 28, 1934.
Filed Sept. 14, 1933 Patented Aug. 28, 1934 UNITED STATES PATIENT OFFICE BOTTLE COLLAR 0R TAG/ Leo Klebanow, New York, Y. Application September 14, 1933, Serial No. 689,466
This invention relates tobottle collars or tags and more particularly to an arrangement whereby they may be readily applied to milk bottles or the like in such manner as to bring to the attention of customers advertising matter appearing on the device, announcements, or other products put out by the dealer. The device is readily detachable and stands away from the body or neck of the bottle so that moisture of the bottle does not disfigure the device or render any indicia thereof illegible.
Another feature of the invention is the provision of a one piece display collar or tag which may be detachably mounted on a bottle. or jar and yet will not obscure the merchandise within the container.
Another feature of the invention is to provide a display collar or tag which may be securely mounted upon the neck of a bottle or the like and, when so mounted, permits a clear, full view of the container, label and merchandise.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a collar or tag cut from one piece of material in the shape of the figure 8 and forming two leaves,.one of the leaves having a hole to allow the neck of a bottle to pass through, the part out to form the hole forming a flap for carrying advertising indicia.
Another advantage of the invention is that the flap may be out or torn away from the rest of the structure and placed in the bottle neck. On this flap can be written any message which the customer wishes to convey to the delivery man.
Further objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the accompanying drawing and the following detailed description.
In the drawing: Figure l is a perspective view of a milk bottle provided with a tag that embodies features of this invention.
Figure 2 is an opened view of the tag or collar. Figure 3 is a similar view as Figure 2 but showing the center leaf bent downwardly.
Figure 4 is a side view showing the device partly folded together.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, numeral l designates a bottle or container which may be constructed of glass, crockery or the like and comprising a body 2 and a neck portion 3.
. As a feature of this inventionI provide a display tag 4. The tag is cut from one sheet of paper, celluloid or some such like material, the outline being in the shape of the figure 3. The leaves 5 and 6 are both of the same shape and size and j are adapted to be folded together along the score line 7 when the device is notin use. Cut in the leaf 5 is a circular flap 8 having a flat base 9 coin ciding with the score line 7. The flap is cut ec-v centrically with respect to the leaf so that a wide fiat base isformed which falls along the score, line 7. Two finger grooves 10 and 11 are cut in. the flap for conveniently turning the flap-out of engagement with the leaf or inserting'it in the bottle neck. l
When the device is in use the flap 8 is bent downwardly on the score line 7 out of engagement with the leaf 5 and the said leaf mounted over the neck of the bottle. On the faces 12 and 13 of the flap 8 and leaf 6 respectively may be printed the advertising matter or announcements desired to be called to the attention of the customer.
As will be seen from Figure 1, the tag retains a distended form when mounted on the neck of the bottle. As a result, the tag when positioned, extends outwardly from the bottle in such a way as not to materially affect the ability to inspect the contents of the bottle. At the same time, the length of the tag is such that use of the bottle would be so inconvenient with the tag in position, that the user would inevitably remove it pulling it out off the neck of the bottle, the purpose of the tag being simply tobring the advertising indicia to the notice of the user. Obviously this removal will be had at the time when the bottle is taken up and before any attempt is made to place itin storage, it being clear that it would be practically impossible to bring a plurality of containers or bottles carrying these collars or tags into close proximity to each other. It will therefore be understood that the invention is designed to provide for delivering the advertisement to the recipient of the container through temporarily attaching the collar or tag to the container in such a way as to practically force the user to remove it inorder to make use of the container itself, the container forming a temporary carrier by which the collar or tag can be delivered to the user.
Obviously, changes in the details of construction may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention and I do not wish to limit myself to the particular form or arrangement of parts shown.
Having described my invention, I claim:
1. A display device fordisposition upon the upper portion of a container comprising in combination a substantially fiat sheet cut in the form of the figure B, a score line dividing the sheet into two leaves, and a flap eccentrically out from one of the leaves, said flap being smaller in diameter than said leaves and adapted to bend on said score line.
2. A display device of the class described comprising a substantially flat sheet in the form of the figure 8, a score line dividing the sheet into two equally sized leaves, said leaves adapted to fold along said score line, and a flap eccentrically cut from one of the leaves, said flap being smaller in diameter than said leaves, the base of said flap coinciding with said score line and adapted to bend thereon.
3. A display device of the class described comprising a flat sheet in the form of the figure 8, a score line dividing the sheet into two equally sized leaves, said leaves adapted to'fold along said score line, and a circular flap provided with finger notches cut from one of the leaves, the base of said flap coinciding with said score line and adapted to bend thereon.
4. A display device of the class described comprising a fiat sheet in the form of the figure 8, a score line dividing the sheet into two equally sized leaves, said leaves adapted to fold along said score line, and a circular flap provided with finger notches eccentrically cut from one of the leaves, the base of said flap being flat and coinciding with said score line and adapted to bend thereon.
5. A display device of the class described comprising two leaves out in the form of the figure 8 and a flap foldable on a common score line, said flap eccentrically cut from one of the leaves.
6. A display device of the class described, a ringlike leaf, another leaf, a score line separating said ring-like leaf from said second mentioned leaf, and a flap smaller in size than any of the mentioned leaves hinged to said second mentioned leaf on said score line, the Wall of said ring-like leaf tapering towards said score line.
7. A display device of the class described, a ringlike leaf, another leaf attached thereto, a score line between said leaves, a circular flap having a flat base hinged to said second mentioned leaf on said score line, the circular portion of said flap being equal in curvature to the interior of said ring-like leaf, said flap having finger notches, the walls of said ring-like leaf tapering towards the said score line.
8. In a device of the class described cut from one piece of material in the form of figure 8, a score line running across said piece of material dividing same into two leaves, one of said leaves eccentrically cut to form an opening to allow the neck of a bottle to pass through, the part out to form the opening forming a flap to carry certain indicia, said flap hinged on said score line.
