container suitable for use with liquid, or semiliquid, products.

'Ihe invention has to do more particularly with the structure of the upper portion of such Aa container, and the invention has as an object, a container of the type referred to of such structure that the top closure of the container is readily removable by cutting, or severing, the upper end of the casing, and means for maintaining the open end of the bag secured to the upper l5 end of the casing after removal of the top closure.v

The invention has as a further object, a container of the type described having a top closure of such structure that it may be readily used as a', slip cover after it has been once unsealed and removed from the container.

The invention consists in the novel features and in the combinations and constructions hereinafter set forth and claimed.

In describing this invention, reference is had .'25 to the accompanying drawings in which like characters designate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a side, elevational view, partly in section, of a container embodying my invention. Figure 2 is a` fragmentary, exploded view of the parts making up the top structure of the container. Y Y

Figure 3 is a fragmentary, sectional viewillustrating the container after the cover has been unsealed and removed therefrom.

' Figure 4 is a fragmentary, sectional view of the top portion of a container showing a modified form of my invention.

Figure 5 is a view, similar to Figure 3, showing the closure or cover unsealed from the container.

Figure 6 is a view, similar to Figure 4, of another modied construction.

Figure '7 is a view, similar to Figures 3 and 5, relating to the structure shown in Figure 6.

The invention comprises generally, a cylindridownwardly between the periphery of the top portion of the casing and said ring, and upwardly 55 over the periphery of said ring, and a top closure Corporation, Fulton, N.

Y., a corporation 1936, Serial No. 104,682

secured at its periphery to the upwardly projecting portion of said fibrous ring member and the edge of the open end of the bag.

`As here shown, the casing I0 is of conventional circular contour and provided with a bottom clo- 5 sure II secured to the lower end of the casing in any suitable manner, as bycrimping at l2.

I3 designates a vring formed preferably of brous material and which encircles the upper portion or end of the casing Ill and is so positioned as to extend upwardly a short distance beyond the upper edge of the casing. A bag I4 of thin, flexible material, such as Cellophane, is inserted in the casing I0, with the open end of the bag extending over the top edge of the casing and being attached to the container and to the ring I3. The open end of the bag extends downwardly between the ring I3 and the periphery of the casing I0, around the bottom edge of the ring, and upwardly over the outer face of the ring with the edge of the bag secured to the ring I3 and sealed to thetop closure by a crimp I5 extending .around the periphery of the cover or top closure I6. The cover` or top closure I64 may be formed with the central discoidal portion I'I deg pressed, as illustrated in Figures 1 to 5, to form a depending flange I8 .slidably fitting the interior of the casing I0, or as illustrated in Figures 6 and 7, the discoidal portion I1 may engage at its periphery with the top edge of the casing I0 and extend flatwise across the top of the container. y f

In Figures 6 and 7, the open end of the bag is secured to the periphery of the upper portion of theV casing by the application of suitable adhesive as at A, Figure 7, and to the periphery of the ring I3, as at B. The bag His thus secured to the upper end of the casing and to the ring I3 in such manner that by cutting or severing the 1 bag at the lower outer edge of the ring, as at 2li, the top closure I6 and the ring I3- may be readily removed from the casing, as illustrated in Figure 7, and thereafter the top closure and ring may be used as a removable slip cover for the container after the same has been unsealed. Also, the ring and bag are attached to the casing III so that the container may be shipped in condition ready to, receive the contents, and the cover I6 conveniently crimped to thel upwardly extending portion of the ring I3.

' -In Figures 6 and 7, the open end of the bag II may be cut, or severed, at the lower edge of the ring I3, 'as at 20, and the top closure I6 together Y with the ring I3 removed as a unit, as illustrated in Figure 7, to Aprovide to the contents of '55 the container. With this particular construction, the cover I6 and ring I3 attached thereto may be replaced on the container. This unit constitutes a removable slip cover for the container 'after the same has been unsealed.

In Figures 1 to 3, a ring member 22 formed of thin, sheet metal encircles the upper end of the casing I0 and is bent, or folded upon itself, to form a'channel 23 opening upwardly. The inner side 24- of the channel member extends over the topedge of the casing I0 and is crimped thereto, as at 25., The channel 23 is of such relative dimensions as to receive the ring member I3 and position it with the top edge of the ring extending upwardly beyond the top edge of the casing III, see Figure 1. With this construction, the open end of the bag I4 is depressed in the channel 23 and is secured therein by the ring I3 acting` as a,

wedge member. The edge of the bag may likewise extend upwardly beyond the outer side of the ring member 22 and be engaged by the crimp I5 of the top closure I6. y

I With this construction, the container is conveniently opened by inserting a knife blade be- .,25 tween the crimp I5 of the top closure and the outer side of the channel ring 22, whereby the bag and the ring are severed, as indicated in Fig-- ure 3. The bagl however remains secured at its --1 open end to the top of the casing I0, and the top ...30 closure I6 may be used as a removable slip cover after the severance of the bag and ring I3.

In Figures 4 and 5, a secJnd ring 30 encirclcs the ring I3, and the open end of the bag I4 is arranged after the manner'described in connection 35- with Figures 6 and 7, and is secured to the ring I3 by the outer ring 30, and to the casing by adhesive, as at A. With this construction, the bag and ring I3 are attached to the casing, and the container is unsealed by severing the ring I3 in td-substantially the same manner as in connection zwith Figures 1 to 3, and the severed top closure is used as a replaceable cover.

The bag I4 is formed and inserted in the casing I0 and attached thereto, and the ring mem- ;45 .ber I3 pressed in place at the container manufacturing plant.` In the construction shown in Figures 1 to 3, the top of the casing IIIl is provided .with the channel member 22, the bag inserted with the open end of the bag extending outwardly aoiacross the channel, as at 32. Thering :member I3 is then pressed into the channel drawing the open end portion of the. bag into the channel. The containers are thus shipped, and after the -contents has been inserted in the container, the 55 top closure I6 is applied and its periphery crimped into engagement with the top edge of the ring I3.

In connection with Figures 4 and 5, the bag I4y .is inserted in the casing I0 with the open end of the bag extending radially outwardly from the 60 top of the casing, the periphery of which' has been previously coated with adhesive. The ring I3 is then pressed downwardly over the open end of the-container, pressingL and sealing the bag to the casing, and the outer ring is pressed up- ,.65 wardly over the ring I3 and the marginal portion of the bag. The containers are shipped in this condition, and after the contents hasbeen placedv therein, the top closure I6 is crimped to the upper edge ofv the ring I3. .70 With the structure shown in Figures 6 'and 7, the bag is inserted in the container, the ring I3 pressed downwardly pressing the open end of the bagA against the periphery of the previously coated casing I0, and the marginal portion of the bag .75 then folded upwardly about the previously coated periphery of the ring. Where it is desired that the container-be gas-tight, the outer edge of the bag is preferably secured under the crimp I5 of the cover. However, where it is not necessary that the container be gas-tight, the periphery of the top closure I6 may. be crimped into engagement with the upper edge of the ring I3, and the edge of the bag I4 may terminate just below the crimp.

It will be understood that shown may be further modified without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, the important feature of which is the attachment of the 'bag and ring to the" casing to maintain the bag in the casing during shipment and filling, 15 and the subsequent attachment of the cover to the upwardly extending edge of the ring.
