March M), 1936, A. MATERNO DISPENSING CONTAINER FOR TOILET PAPER Filed Jan. 29, 1954 Patented Mar. 10, 1936 UNITED sra ATENT OFFIQE DISPENSING CONTAINER FOR TOILET PAPER Arthur Materno, Vienna, Austria 3 Claims.

This invention relates to a new type of distributor or dispensing container for toilet paper of the type which is made up into stacks of equally sized pieces folded across the middle and laid in zig-zag formation alternately one within the other. The novel type of dispensing container provided by the present invention differs from the types hitherto known, by the fact that the sheets of paper are not arranged to be withdrawn through a slot (generally provided on the under side of the container), but through an aperture at either end of the container. For this purpose, the dispensing container according to the invention consists of a simple loop of paper which is open at both ends, of a length substantially equal to the breadth of the stack of paper to be inserted therein, and of a circumference sufficient to accommodate the said stack when folded bodily across its length.

The invention is illustrated, by way of example, in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 shows the toilet paper dispensing container ac cording to the invention, in perspective view, while Fig. 2 shows the same with the wrapper partly removed to show the arrangement of an elastic loop encircling the packet of paper in the container.

The container according to the invention consists essentially of a simple loop-shaped paper wrapper 3, which is open at both ends, and which is adapted to envelop closely a packet of toilet paper consisting of cut sheets folded and laid zigzag fashion in the commonly known manner, this packet being folded bodily across the middle, as will be clear from the drawing. If the innermost sheet of the packet be then withdrawn by one corner to either side, it draws the next sheet out with it, so that the corner of the latter is left projecting from the end of the container, ready for the convenient extraction of the sheet when required. In order to prevent the unintentional withdrawal of a number of sheets simultaneously, towards the end of the packet, there is first placed around the folded packet I an elastic loop, for instance a rubber band 9, after which the outermost sheet 8 of the packet is stuck tothe inside of the wrapper 3 by means of adhesive. The elastic loop holds the packet together to the very end, and thus prevents the unintentional withdrawal of a number of sheets simultaneously as the packet becomes used up. The wrapper-container is further provided with a reinforced selvedge strip l having holes 4, 5 by which the complete requisite can be hung up on hooks or nails.

What I claim is:

1. A dispensing container for a packet of zig-zag interfolded toilet paper comprising a loop-shaped paper wrapper enveloping the toilet paper folded together into a wedge-like form in its longitudinal direction whereby the round side of the wedge is directed downward, apertures being provided in the twonarrow sides for allowing of a lateral withdrawal of the paper and a projecting periorated selvedge strip on the pointed upper end of the loop-shaped paper wrapper.

2. A dispensing container for a packet of zigzag interfolded toilet paper comprising a loopshaped paper wrapper enveloping the toilet paper folded together into a wedge-like form in its longitudinal direction whereby the round side of the wedge is directed downward, apertures being provided in the two narrow sides for allowing of a lateral withdrawal or" the paper and a projecting perforated selvedge strip on the pointed upper end of the loop-shaped paper wrapper, the outermost sheet of the packet adhering to the inside surface of the loop-shaped paper wrapper in order to avoid a lateral displacement of the packet which would prevent the withdrawal of the sheet.

3. A dispensing container for a packet of zigzag interfolded toilet paper comprising a loopshaped paper wrapper enveloping the toilet paper folded together into a wedge-like form in its longitudinal direction whereby the round side of the wedge is directed downward, apertures being provided in the two narrow sides for allowing of a lateral withdrawal of the paper and a projecting perforated selvedge strip on the pointed upper end of the loop-shaped paper wrapper, an elastic loop of rubber or the like being stretched around the outermost sheet of the folded packet and adhering with the packet to the wrapping loop.
