JOHN F. REID, OF LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 8, 1910.
Application filed November 2, 1909. Serial No. 525,955.
To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, JOHN F. REID, a citizen of the United S ates, residing at Little Falls, in the county of-Morrison and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ice-Cream-Cone Holders; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvements in holders for ice cream cones.
One object of the invention is to provide a holder of this character which may be readily inserted in a pa er bag and will hold the cones in osition to e carried in the bag.
Another 0 ject is to rovide a device of this character which wi 1 be simple and inexpensive inconstruction and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
IVi'th these and other objects in view, the
invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangementof parts, as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claim.
In th accompanying drawings, Figure 1 1s a pers ective view 0 a holder constructed in accor ance with the invention; Fig. '2 is a vertical sectional View showing the holder arranged in a paper bag and supporting two ice cream cones; Fig. 3 is a plan view of the blank from which the holder is formed.
7 My improved cone holder is formed from a strip or piece of card-board or other like inexpensive material. In the central por tion of the card-board holder 1 is formed a plurality of holes, 2, of which there may be 40 any desired number, said holes being of the proper size to support the usual ice cream cone. In the center of the card-board holder 1 between the holes there is attached a flexible bail or handle by means of which the holder is readily carried to relieve the paper sack from the weight of the filled cones.'
The opposite ends of the card-board holder are adapted to be folded downwardly on a line adjacent to the outer edges of the holes 2 said ends forming supporting members or feet 4 for the holder. In the upper portion of the folded ends or feet members of the holder are formed bracing tongues 5, said tongues being preferably cut from the material of which the holder is formed and the said out portion is bent back or inwardly beneath the top or cone carrying portion of the holder and supports said portion and also prevents the legs from bending inwardly when the holder is placed in a paper bag.
A holder constructed as here shown and described will support the ice cream cones placed therein in an upright position where- 'by they may be readily carried in a paper the construction and operation of the invention will be readily understood without requiring a more extended explanation.
Various changes in the form, proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what- I claim is An ice cream cone holder comprising a I strip of stiff cardboard with its opposite ends bent to form supporting legs and with its I intermediate body portion provided with a plurality of cone receiving apertures, a han dle secured to said cone holding portion, and tongues cut from said leg portions adjacent the intermediate cone holding portion and adapted to be folded inwardly to bear against the under side of said holding portion whereby said leg members are braced.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
