JEWELRY BOX Filed May 27, 1964 3/0 +132 FQLI 20 t /6 /7 5 @6 15 &D 61/ B 25 29 5 a A INVENTOR. A 1 2771 UR Bl. UMBERG United States Patent 3,206,014 JEWELRY BOX Arthur Blumberg, 21 Hilltop Court, Woodbury, N.Y. Filed May 27, 1964, Ser. No. 370,492 1 Ciaim. (Cl. 206-4519) This invention relates to a jewelry box and refers more particularly to a display box for cuff-links, collar pins and similar articles.
It is an important object of the present invention to provide a box wherein jewelry such as cuff-links, collar pins, etc., may be carried for display.
Another object is to provide a display box for cuff-links, collar pins, etc., wherein the jewelry items are mounted in a prominent manner and thus readily visible to the viewer.
Another object is to provide a display box for cuff-links, collar pins, etc., in which the jewelry items are held securely in display positions in the box.
Still another object is to provide a display box for cufflinks, collar pins, etc., in which the jewelry items are supported in an elevated display position on upstanding projetcions made integral with the box structure.
Other objects of the present invention will appear in the course of the following specification.
In achieving the above-mentioned objectives it was found advantageous to provide a display box for cultlinks, collar pins, etc., which comprises an elongated substantially flat bottom having a central recessed portion which is provided wit-h a plurality of bifurcated upstanding projections. The bifurcated projections are adapted to receive jewelry items such as cuff-links, the cuff-links being held securely by and inbetween the branches of the projections. The bottom is also provided with at least one pair of other bifurcated upstanding projections for receiving and holding securely, a collar pin. The bottom is also provided at its ends with transversely directed, upwardly curving end Walls. A curved transparent cover piece is supported on the end walls and extends down into the recess in the bottom which acts to hold the cover securely in place.
The invention will appear more clearly from the following detailed description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, showing by way of example, a preferred embodiment of the inventive concept.
In the drawings:
FIGURE 1 is a plan view of a display box constructed in accordance with the principles of the present invention.
FIGURE 2 is a front elevational view of FIGURE 1.
FIGURE 3 is a perspective view on reduced scale of the transparent cover used with the display box of the present invention.
FIGURE 4 is a sectional view as taken along line IVIV of FIGURE 1, the transparent cover of FIGURE 3 being shown in place on the box.
FIGURE 5 is a fragmentary perspective View illustrating the manner in which a cuff-link is held in display position in the box.
FIGURE 6 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating the manner in which a collar pin is held in display position in the box.
Throughout the specifications like reference numerals are used to indicate like parts.
Referring in detail to FIGURES 1 and 2 of the drawing, the display box 10 of the present invention has an elongated, generally rectangular shaped bottom 11 which is provided with a central recess 12, the recess being uni- 'ice formly spaced inwardly of the periphery of the bottom as shown. The bottom is also provided with transversely directed, upwardly curving end walls 13 and 14, the end walls preferably being made integral with the bottom and being located at the terminal ends of recess 12.
Bottom 11 is also provided with a plurality of longitudinally arranged, bifurcated upstanding projections 15-18, each of which is adapted to receive and support a cuff-link (FIGURE 5) or similar article of jewelry. Each bifurcated projection 15-18 has a transversely directed slot 20 which as seen in FIGURE 5, receives the cuff-link, the branches 21, 22 of each projection tending to retain the cuff-link. To the latter end, it is preferable to make the display box from polyethylene or polypropylene so that the bifurcated branches 21, 22 have a resiliency which permits them to be spread apart for receiving the cufflink, and to then return to a friction engagement against the cuff-link.
Bottom 11 is further provided with a number of pairs of other bifurcated upstanding projections 23, 23' and 24, 24. These other projections each have a longitudinally directed slot 25 so that each pair of projections 23, 23 and 24, 24' are adapted for receiving a collar-pin 26 (FIGURE 6).
The display box 10 also includes a transparent cover 27 (FIGURES 3 and 4) which is a longitudinally elongated member having a curved cross-section corresponding to the shape of end Walls 13 and 14. As seen in FIG- URE 4, the cover 27 is supported on the end walls 13 and 14 and extends along its longitudinal margins 28 and 29 into recess 12, the end walls being set back from the recess as at 30 and 31 (FIG. 1) to accommodate the cover.
While there is above disclosed but one embodiment of the display box of the present invention, it is possible to produce still other embodiments without departing from the scope of the inventive concept herein disclosed.
What is claimed is:
A display box for cuff-links, collar pins and link jewelry items, said display box comprising, in combination, an elongated rectangular substantially flat bottom, a plurality of upstanding projections carried by said bottom and extending in pairs in a single row along a longitudinal edge of the bottom and spaced from said edge, the two projections of each pair being located closer to each other than projections belonging to different pairs, each of said projections being bifurcated and having a slot extending in the direction of said edge, the slots of said projections extending in alinement with each other, and a plurality of other upstanding projections carried by said bottom and extending in a single row parallel to the first-mentioned row and located substantially in the middle of said bottom, each of the other projections being bifurcated and having a slot extending perpendicularly to the slots of the first-mentioned projections, two opposed end walls connected to said bottom adjacent the ends thereof, and a. transparent covering supported on said end Walls and extending over said bottom.
