This invention relates to receptacles in which detachable flaps are provided at the mouth thereof.
In the present construction, I provide two detachable flaps adjacent one another, one of which may be used as an identification receipt while the other may be filed as a matter of record.
The various features and advantages of this type of receptacle will be apparent from the following description and claims when taken in connection with the'accompanying drawing in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the receptacle having two detachable flaps at the mouth thereof;
Figure 2 is a similar view but showing one of the flaps detached;
Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 1 but showing the detachable flaps on the opposite side of the receptacle from that shown in Figure 1; and
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 with one of the flaps detached. 7
The receptacle forming the subject matter of Figures 1 and 2 is made by slitting a web of paper at appropriate points, folding the web to form a tube with the folds coinciding with the slits and subsequently severing the tube into sections, one of which is shown in Figure 1. The overlapped portions of the web form a seam 2 which is pasted as indicated at 3, but a portion is left unpasted thereby producing two flaps 4 and 6 at the mouth of the receptacle, which are continuations of the seam wall 8 thereof. Flap i0, is a continuation of the rear or plain wall of the receptacle. Aline of perforations I2 is. made at the base of the. flaps 4 and 6 and the unpasted portion of the seam extends from this line of perforations to the top edges of the two flaps kl and 6. The plain wall of the receptacle extends slightly below the bottom edge of the seam wall as indicated at I4 forming a bottom closing. flap, which when folded along the line a---a, Figure 1, closes the bottom of the receptacle as shown in Figure 2. In this figure the flap 4 has been removed and when the flap 6 is also removed by tearing along the perforated line 82, the flap l0 may be folded over onto the seam Wall of the receptacle thereby producing ,a true envelope, since the bottom flap it also folds over onto the same wall. One of the detachable flaps may constitute a customers receipt and the other a record slip. Both slips and the plain receptacle wall are provided with identifying data such as a number or a symbol.
The form of receptacle shown in Figures 3 and 4 differs from that shown in Figures l and 2 mainly in the fact that the flaps l and 6 are continuous to the plain wall of the receptacle and are divided near the center at- 5. A line of perforations l2 extends along the base of each of these flaps. In this form the line of paste 3 extends the full length of the section including the flap ill. In Figure 3 the seam wall I is upper-' most and the bottom closing flap M is a continuation of this plain wall and is folded under and onto the seam wall as indicated in Figure 4. When both flaps have been detached, the flap Ill, Figure 4, which is a continuation of the seam wall, is folded down over the plain wall. In this form of device the final result is a bag as distinguished from an envelope. 7
This application is refiled for abandoned application Ser. No. 227,035, August 2'7, 1938.
What I claim is:
l. A receptacle having a plain wall and a seam wall, a flap at the mouth of the receptacle which is a continuation of said plain wall, two flaps at the mouth of said receptacle which are continuations of the seam wall, a line of perforations at the base of each of said seam wall flaps whereby each flap may individually be separated from the wall of which they are continuations,
both of said flaps and one of said walls having identifying data thereon, the un-detached flap adapted after detaching the other two flaps to be folded over onto the seam wall of the receptacle for closing the mouth thereof.
2. A receptacle formed of a web folded to form a plain wall and a seam wall, a flap at the mouth of the receptacle which is a continuation of the plain wall, a line of perforations in the seam wall substantially coincident with the base of the plain wall flap, the seam being pasted up to said line of perforations, but unpasted from said line to the top of the seam wall thereby forming two flaps at the mouth of the bag which are con tinuations of the seam wall thereof, the line of Y perforations and unpasted portion of the seam enabling said flaps to be severed individually from the bag wall to which they are a continuation.
