DESIGN FOR A BOX.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 28,641, dated May 17, 1898. Application filed July 27, 1897. Serial No. 646,151. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE II. RICHARDS, of Somerville, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented and produced a newand original Design for a Box, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, isa specification.
My design is embodied in a box in the form of a hollow triangular prism closed at both ends by plane triangular faces parallel with each other.
The triangularends of the box haveasubstantially triangular central panel of a color contrasting sharply with that of the broad surrounding margin. One angle of this triangular panel is cut oif by a transverse line. The rectangular panels forming the sides have a narrow margin of a color contrasting with that of the said panels. One of these rectangular panels has a broad diagonal band of a contrasting color dividing it into two rightangled triangles.
I am aware of and I disclaim the triangular designs for lanterns set forth in the design patents to Clough and Fountain, dated July 19, 1864, No. D 1,971, and to Alexander, dated February 4, 1868, No. I) 2,905, such lanterns showing end openings for ventilation, external handles, and projecting tops or bottoms and having no ornamentation conforming to mine. The appearance is consequently quite unlike my design.
I claim as my invention- The design for a box substantially as shown and described.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
GEORGE E. RICHARDS.
