Moorhead Attorney, Agent, or Firm-Danie1 Jay Tick ABSTRACT A handle member affixed to the outside of a container is movable from a position juxtaposed with a container to a position extending radially from the container and utilizable as a handle. A napkin holder affixed to the outside of the container spaced from the handle member resleasably supports a napkin.

2 Claims, 2 Drawing Figures US. Patent Dec. 16, 1975 FIGZ DISPOSABLE CONTAINER WITH NAPKIN HOLDER DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a disposable container.

Objects of the invention are to provide a disposable container of simple structure which is inexpensive in manufacture and provides a napkin or tissue instantaneously for anyone using the container.

In order that the invention may be readily carried into effect, it will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawing, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of an embodiment of the disposable container of the invention; and

FIG. 2 is a top view, on an enlarged scale, of the embodiment of FIG. 1.

In the FIGS., the same components are identified by the same reference numerals.

The disposable container of the invention comprises a container 1. A handle member 2 is affixed to the outside of the container and is movable from a position substantially juxtaposed with the container to a position extending substantially radially from the container and utilizable as a handle. The handle member 2 preferably comprises a pair of substantially identical halves 3 and 4 each movable from a position substantially juxtaposed with the container 1 to a position extending substantially radially from the container, as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, and utilizable with the other half as a handle.

2 A napkin holder 5 is affixed to the outside of the container 1 and is spaced from the handle member 2.

The napkin holder 5 may comprise any suitable napkin holder for releasably supporting a napkin, tissue, or the like 6.

While the invention has been described by means of a specific example and in a specific embodiment, I do not wish to be limited thereto, for obvious modifications will occur to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

I claim:

1. The combination of a disposable container and a napkin, said combination comprising a disposable container;

a handle member affixed to the outside of the container and movable from a position substantially juxtaposed with the container to a position extending substantially radially from the container and utilizable as a handle; and

a napkin holder affixed to the outside of the container spaced from the handle member for releasably supporting a napkin, said napkin holder comprising a pair of substantially identical halves, each affixed to the container in spaced relation with the other and opening toward the other, said halves clamping the napkin, between them, to the container.

2. A disposable container as claimed in claim 1,

wherein the handle member comprises a pair of substantially identical halves each movable from a position substantially juxtaposed with the container to a position extending substantially radially from the container and utilizable with the other half as a handle.
