W zao COMBINATION SHIPPING CONTAINER AND DISPLAY SUPPORT This invention relates to merchandise display stands. More particularly, the invention is directed to a novel display stand which utilizes, as a principal structural element. a carton in which articles were originally shipped.

It is an important feature of the invention that there is packed, together with the article-filled carton containing the articles to be displayed, a sleeve-like tubular base into which the carton, when emptied. is inserted so that the carton serves as the supporting platform and the sleeve as the confining peripheral walls of the hopper-like display bin.

A related feature of the invention is that the sleevelike tubular base is collapsible and foldable for ship ment with the packed case so that the base does not significantly affect the overall size ofthe shipped package.

Another feature of the invention is that the packing box or carton may be supported within the base in any of several structural arrangements.

Yet another feature of the invention is that there is provided a very useful and aesthetically pleasing dis play in which a principal component constitutes the packaging carton in which the articles to be displayed were shipped, whereby the overall expense associated with the display is minimized.

Still another feature of the invention is that there is provided a display placard readily mountable to extend upwardly from the display base.

An important feature of the display assembly of the invention is its great mechanical strength.

A general feature of the improved display assembly of the invention is that it is readily fabricated of foldable corrugated sheet material or the like, is of simple construction, has a minimum of component parts, is rugged and durable, is attractive in appearance though low in cost, and is easily assembled.

Other and further features, objects, and advantages of the invention will be apparent from a consideration ofthe following description taken with the accompany ing drawing in which:

FIG. 13 is a fragmentary. exploded. schematic view showing the base truncated, so as more clearly to indicate the manner in which the packing box is supported within the base.

'Referring more particularly to the drawing. there is shown in FIGS. l4, for the purpose of illustrative disclosure, one preferred embodiment of the invention including a combination shipping container and display support. In the specific example depicted, the display bin 20 illustrated comprises. as best seen in FIGS. 2 and 3, an upstanding open-ended tubular sleeve 24 of corrugated board or similar material, a carton-like base or case 28 disposed within and spanning the sleeve 24 and constituting a support for the articles to be displayed in the bin-like cavity 30 delineated by a sealed support surface 32 of the case 28 and the front and rear walls 36 and 38 and the connecting side walls 42 and 44 of the tubular sleeve 24. Preferably. the upper marginal edges 46 and 48 ofthe opposedl side walls 42 and 44 are inclined upwardly from front to rear so that the rear wall 38 extends to a height above the front wall 36.

In the preferred embodiment of the invention shown in FIGS. 1-4, a header type display panel 50 is fastened to and extends upwardly of a marginal upper edge of the rear wall 38 ofthe tubular sleeve 24. While any preferred technique may be used for securing the display panel 50 to the wall 38of the sleeve 24, in the specific embodiment ofthe invention shown the lower marginal edge of the header panel 50 is provided with a pair of laterally spaced slots 54 and 56 extending upwardly from a lower marginal edge of the panel 50 to form a central web 60 and two side tabs 62 and 64. A pair of correspondingly spaced slots 68 and 70 extends downwardly from a top marginal edge of the rear wall 38. The header panel 50 and the rear wall 38 of the base are intercoupled at their respective slots 54, 56 and 68, 70, preferably with the web 60 outside the tubular sleeve 24 and the tabs 62 and 64 within the sleeve. all as indicated in FIG. 2.

It is an important feature of the invention that the case or carton 28 which constitutes the support for the articles displayed in the bin is. the same container in which the articles themselves were packaged and shipped. It will be appreciated that the particular shape or conformation ofthe carton 28 does not constitute an element of the invention. In setting up the display, it is necessary merely to remove the articles from the case 28 and. thereafter, turn the closure flaps 72 inward into the body of the case and then to slide the case, openend facing down, into the tubular sleeve or base 24 so that the bottom 32 of the empty case 28 becomes the floor or platform upon which the display articles are carried. Alternatively, the case 28 may be rotated or shifted 90' whereupon a side wall of the case 28 becomes the article supporting platform. Irrespective of the particular relative spatial orientation preferred. the dimensions of the case are such that the case 28 slides telescopingly into the sleeve 24.

In the preferred example shown in FIG. 4. the sleeve 24 is scored at opposed side walls 42 and 44 to provide fold lines and 92 so that the side walls 42 and 44 may be displaced inwardly accordianwise. Additionally. the sleeve is provided with horizontal score lines 98 formed in the walls so that the sleeve or base may be folded over upon itself after it has been collapsed radially inwardly. When so folded. the final height of the base for shipment will not exceed the maximum dimension of the carton or shipping container 28.

To enable one selectively to position the support platform 32 at various heights including heights greater than the height of the carton 28. there is provided an auxiliary box or collar sized for ease of insertion into the sleeve 24 to serve as a carton-supporting element. The on-site use of the collar 110 may be dispensed with where a deeper upper hopper is desired. As indicated in FIG. 1, the box or collar 110 serves as a receptacle to hold the folded sleeve 24 and the placard 50 during shipping.

A somewhat modified form of the invention is shown in FIGS. 5 through 7. As illustrated, the merchandising assembly includes a tubular sleeve or base 124 rectangular in horizontal cross section and formed by front and rear walls 126 and 128 connected by side walls 130 and 132. Also. as in the first embodiment of the invention, the opposed side walls 130 and 132 are scored vertically to provide fold lines and 142, and all four walls are provided with horizontally extending score lines so that the sleeve 124 may be collapsed and folded. all as previously described.

The interior platform on which the articles to be displayed are supported within the sleeve 124 is provided by the same carton in which the articles themselves were shipped, the bottom 164 (or one of the side walls 168) of the carton becoming the support.

The display assembly of the second embodiment 120 includes a bin-forming hopper-like superstructure 170 adapted partially to penetrate into and to nest within the upper portion of the tubular sleeve 124 and to flare upwardly and outwardly therefrom. As shown in FIG. 5, the superstructure 170 includes a neck band or flange 176 consisting of wall-like panels 180 which are telescopingly received within the base or sleeve 124. Alternatively. the neck band 176 at the lower edge of the superstructure 170 may be an endless flange and thebase 24 may include upwardly directed tongue portions slidably received within the flange. Flaring upwardly and outwardly from the neck bank 176 are front and rear walls and 192 and side walls 196 and 198.

The rear wall 192 of the superstructure 170 is conveniently formed with a pair of laterally spaced slots 202 and 204 extending downwardly from the top of the wall 192, for intercoupling with a display panel or header panel 210 which is formed at its lower edge with a pair of correspondingly spaced downwardly opening slots 214 and 216, whereby the panel 210 may be intercoupled'with and supported on the rear wall 192 of the display assembly, all as previously described.

To erect the display at the use site the hopper 170 is mounted on the base 124 with the neck band 176 located within the open top 'of the base 124 so that the neck panels 180 abut the sleeve walls, as shown in FIG. 7. The carton 160, emptied of its contents. is then inserted open end down into the sleeve 124 to rest on the same surface which supports the sleeve. As shown in FIG. 7, the bottom 164 of the carton 160 becomes 4 the support platform for articles to be displayed. The walls I68 of the carton also serve to press against and to secure the neck band I76 in place to stabilize the hopper 170. The display placard 210 is then attached to the rear wall 192 of the base 124.

A third embodiment of the display assembly of the invention is illustrated in FIGS. 8-10. As shown. the assembly 220 includes an upstanding base 224 folded inwardly at opposed sides along enabling slits 226 and 228 to provide inwardly inset opposed side walls 230 and 232 constituting a mechanical. vertical support for a box or carton 238. The carton 238 constitutes a raised floor serving as a support member for articles to be displayed in a surmounting hopper-like superstructure 240, the latter being integrally formed with and extending upwardly from the lower portion of the base 224 of the assembly 220.

Whereas the side walls 244 and 246 of the bin-like hopper 240 are offset laterally outwardly from the support walls 230 and 232, the front and rear walls 250 and 252 of the hopper 240 are coplanar with and constitute upwardly projecting extensions of the corresponding front and rear walls 256 and 260 of the lower portion of the base 224. The manner of folding the side walls of the base to provide the offset arrangement is clearly illustrated in FIG. 10 which also shows the technique by which the rearward portions of the principal side walls 230 and 232 define flanges 260 and 262 folded upon and contiguously overlying the rear wall 252 of the base 224.

It will be appreciated that the box 238 which constitutes the support for the articles to be displayed is preferably and conveniently the same box in which the articles are shipped, or the box in which the display assembly itself was packaged. In accordance with the practice of the invention, it is necessary merely to close the box 238 and drop it in place as indicated by the broken lines of FIG. 8. The completed assembly includes a display panel 270 attached to the hopper 240 by means of cooperating slits and-tabs, all as previously described.

In the embodiment of the invention shown in FIGS. 11-13, the display assembly 280 includes a base 284 which is slit 288 and scored 292 at each corner at corresponding positions intermediate the lower extremity and the upper limit of the base 284 so that there is formed, at each corner, a pair of triangular webs 296 which are conveniently pushed inwardly to form inside corners 298. The upper edges of the corners 298 serve as stops and as mechanical supports for a box or carton 302 which is slidably inserted into the base 284 to form a floor 304 on which articles to be displayed are supported within the assembly 280. The manner in which the support corners are formed is clearly shown in the truncated base pictured in FIG. 13, and the box in its supported position on the corners is illustrated in FIG. 11. It is an important feature of the invention, as previously indicated, that the box 302 is preferably the box in which the articles to be displayed are packaged or the box in which the display assembly itself was shipped. Also, as previously described, the assembly may include a surmounting display panel 310 secured to the back wall 312 of the hopper-like portion of the base 284 by means of cooperating slits and tabs.

For the purpose of illustrative disclosure, and not by way of limitation, the combination shipping container and display support used in the display assembly of the invention has been described with reference to a preferred geometric shape, that is, one generally rectangular in horizontal cross section. It is ohvious. however. that the inventive concept and the principles of the invention are applicable as well as structures'taking many different physical forms It is also contemplated that any preferred structural material may be used. Irrespective of the shape and irrespective of the structural material used, it will be possible in'all cases to insert the shipping container or case into the circumambient sleeve so that the container itself becomes a support platform for the very articles which are originally con tained in the carton. The substantive concept of the present invention includes the effective utilization of the shipping carton as a principal functional component in a bin-like display assembly erected at the sale site.

While disclosures of preferred embodiments of the display assembly and of preferred methods for assembling and erecting the bin of the invention have been provided, it will be apparent that numerous modifieations and variations thereof may be made without de parting from underlying principles of the invention. It is, therefore, desired by the following claims to include within the scope of the invention all such variations and modifications by which substantially the results of this invention may be obtained through the use of substantially the same or equivalent means.
