- FIQ FOLDING BOX.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed June 14, 1911.

Patented Jan. 16, 1912. Serial No. 633,063.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE C. CORNELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Canton, in the county of Bradford and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Folding Boxes, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawmgs.

My invention relates to improvements in folding boxes, especially folding paper boxes, the object of my invention being to provide a cheap,'simple, strong and durable box of this kind which is made from a single blank and which can be readily folded and set up and is also adapted to be securely fastened, the invention consisting in the construction, combination and arrangement of devices hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective View of a folding box constructed in accordance with my invention, showing the same closed and fastened; Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the top of the box raised; Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse sectional view of the same on the plane indicated by the line aa of Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a plan of the blank from which the box is made.

The bottom- 1 of the box is square and is formed integrall y with the end walls 2 and 3. The top 4 is also united with the end wall 3 and is formed on its outer side with a flap 5. The ends 2 and 3 are bent from the bottom on the lines 6 and 7, respectively, and the top is bent from the end 3 on the line 8 and the flap 5 is bent from the top on the line 9. Reinforce flaps 10 and 11 are at opposite ends of the end wall 2. Similar flaps 12 and 13' are at opposite ends of the end wall 3 and similar flaps 14 and 15 are at opposite ends of the flap 5. The bottom is also formed with a pair of side walls 16 and 17, the wall 17 having a flap 18. The top is formed with side walls 19 and 20 and said side wall 19, which, in the blank, is at the opposite side from the wall 17 of the bottom, is provided with a flap 21.

The blank from which the box is made and which is shown in detail plan in Fig. 4, is rectangular in form. The flaps 10 and 11 are formed by slits 22 and 23 from opposite sides of the blank. The flaps 12 and 13 are formed by similar slits 24 and 25 and the flaps 14 and 15 are formed by similar slits 27.

To set up my improved box the end walls 2 and 3 are first turned up at right angles to the bottom; the flaps 10, 11, 12 and 13 are then turned inwardly from the walls 2 and 3; the side walls 16 and 17 are then turned up. The top is turned down; the flap 14 is tucked between the flaps 10 and 12 and the side wall 16. The flap 15 is tucked-between the flaps 11 and 13 and the side wall 17. The flap 20 of the top is turned down into the body of the box to bear against the flaps 11 and 13. The flap 19 is placed against the outer side of the wall 16 and the flaps 18 and 21 are respectively turned partly over the top and under the bottom of the box as shown in Fig. 1. Hence the box is formed with closed corners and the sides thereof are reinforced, excepting the side 3 which is integral with and directly joined to both the bottom and the top, which needs no reinforcement; provided, near one end, with a suitable eyelet or other fastening device 28 to which cords 29 are attached and the cords are employed for tying and fastening the box when set up and closed, as shown in Fig. 1, the cords being passed around the box parallel with and near the four sides thereof as shown.

Having thus described my invention I claim:

The herein described folding box made from a single piece of material and embodying a bottom, a top, a wall united to and between the bottom and top, a wall united to the bottom and opposite the first mentioned wall, a flap parallel with said walls and united to the outer end of the top, reinforce flaps at opposite ends of and bendable from the said walls and the top end flap, side walls at the sides of the bottom at right angles to the first named walls, flaps at the sides of The flaps 18 and 21 are each the top at right angles to the first named In testimony WhereofI hereunto aflix my Walls, one side Wall of the bottom and one signature in the presence of two Witnesses. side flap of the top being each provided With an outer flap, said outer flaps being at op- GEORGE CORNELL posite sides of the box and bendable respec- Witnesses: tively over the top and under the bottom J. W. GARNER,

thereof. L. G. ELLIS.
