Behr, Bridgeport, Conn. Application September 22, 1934, Serial No. 745.033,
1 Claim. (c1. 273-131) This invention relates to improvements in stationery containers for note or letter paper and envelopes, and it is the principal object of my invention to provide a container of this type which after the use of the stationery originally contained therein, may be used as a toy for children for their entertainment.
Another object of my invention is the provision of a stationery container including and holding writing implements such as pencils, pens, blotters etc. and having an outer pleasing and ornamental appearance.
Still another object of my invention is the provision of a stationery box including means for storing cards, stamps and other paraphernalia and having windows in its outer walls which can be opened and closed, and a hinged, roof-like cover.
A further object of my invention is the provision of a stationery container having various forms and shapes as to represent for instance, a checker-board leaving a place for a label or tag or having the single fields thereof removable to be used as play pieces for playing therewith a game of checkers.
A still further object of my invention is the provision of a novel and improved stationery con-p tainer of simple, yet durable construction, which however is highly efficient in use either as a stationery or writing implement container or as a toy.
These and other objects and advantages of my invention will become more fully known as the description thereof proceeds and will then be specifically defined in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a stationery container constructed according to my invention,
Fig. 2 is a section on line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Fig. 3 is a view similar to Figure 1 with the container open.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a modified form of my stationery container having dice shape.
Fig. 5 is a perspective View of another modified form of container.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a further modified form of my container in the shape of ablockhouse.
Fig. 7 is a perspective view of 'a modified form of my container shown in Figure 5.
Figures 8 and 9 are perspective views of still 7 using up the supply of stationery, its top or cover may be used as a checker board, andthe loosely attached black and white fields are disconnected from the walls of the container and. can thus be used as play pieces for a game of checkers in the usual well known manner.
The use of my novel and improved stationery container will be entirely clear from the above description by having simultaneous reference to the drawings.
It will be understood that I have described and shown the preferred forms of my stationery container only as some examples of the many possible Ways to practically construct the same, and that I may make such changes in the general arrangement thereof and particularly in the illustrations and representations displayed as come within the scope of the appended claim without departure from the spirit of my invention and the principles involved.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
A container comprising walls and cover form ing substantially checker boards having alternating black and White fields, some of the fields foldably attached to the walls of the container and adapted to be torn therefrom and to be used as play pieces when the container, after use of the stationery contained therein, is to be used for playing a game of checkers.
