DISPLAY STRUCTURE AND CARTON THEREFOR.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 28, '19 14.

Application filed March 20, 1911. Serial No.-615,800.

In advertising goods that are sold in pack ages or cartons, the cartons or large sized replica of the same are frequently displayed in fanciful built-up arrangements or structures in store windows or the like.

ally connected by wire staples or other similar fastening means.

.The present invention relates to such display structures and cartons and seeks to provide a simple and improved construction by which the cartons can be connected together in various ways withoutthe use of staples or the like for forming built-up displays.

The invention consists in the features of; improvement hereinafter set forth, illustrated in the preferredform'in-the accompanying drawing and. more. particularly pointed out in the; appended claims.

In the drawing, two of the improved cartons are shown connected together and Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of the two connected cartons on the lines 1 -1'of Figs. 2 and '3. Fig. 2 is atop view of the two connected cartons and Flg. 3 is a bottom view thereof with the outer flaps of one of the cartons opened to show the manner of connecting the cartons at their lower ends.

The improved display carton is preferably collapsible and is formed in the well-known manner of a singlesheet or.blank of paper board, the blank being cut at its ends to form the pairs of folding flaps a and a and b and b. The blank is also scored, as usual,

to form the longitudinal folds between the sides 0 and the transverse folds between the sides and the folding end flaps. The side edges of the blank are overlapped and glued or cemented, as indicated at 0, to hold the carton in shape when it is expanded and the end flaps folded. The pair of opposite flaps b and b constitute What may properly be termed the inner flaps and the pair of oposite flaps a and a constitute the outer aps. In ordinary use, the carton is filled with goods and the inner flaps b and b are In such' built-up arrangements, the cartons are usu first folded inwardly upon the goods. The I outer-flaps are then folded inwardly over the inner flaps. The flap (1 is provided at its outer edge with laterally projecting tongues 1 which are adapted to interlock with two inclined slits 2, formed in the opposite outer flap a, near the outer edge thereof. The outer flaps are thus arranged and adapted to be folded inwardly and the tongues and groovesthereof interlock to close the end of the package. I

i In the ordinary carton, the inner pair of opposite flaps are not provided with tongues and slits, but in cartons with the present invention, one of these inner flaps b is providedadjacent its outer edge with a pair of laterally extending tongues 8 and the opposite inner flap 6 is provided with a pair of inclined slits 4 adjacent its inner edge. The

wardly, they can be connected to the inner flaps of similar cartons by interlocking the tongues 3 of the flap Z) of one carton with the slits 4 of thefiap b of another similar carton. As shown in the drawing, the flap b at the'upper end of the carton A is connected to the flap 7) at the upperv end of a similar carton A by interlockingthe tongues 3 and slits 4 of these flaps. These tongues and slits are so arranged that when interlocked, the ends of the adjacent cartons areheld apart in offset relation. It is obviousthat the flap 1) at the upper end of the carton A and the flap 6 at the upper end of the carton A can he connected in the same way with narymanner, but by'turning these flaps outother similar display. cartons, and at the same time theends of the connected cartons can be closed by interlocking the tongues 1 and slits 2 of the other pair-of flaps a and a of each carton, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

In the form shown, the flap b is also provided near its inner or hinged edge with an inwardly projecting tongue 5 and the opposite inner flap b is provided adjacent its inner or hinged edge with a transverse slit 6. This tongue and slit of the inner flaps of the same carton cannot be interlocked, but the inner flap 1) of one carton can be connected to the inner flap 6 of another similar carton by interlocking the tongue 5 and slit 6 of these flaps. As shown in the drawing,

and a. In Fig. 3 the outer flaps a and a are turned outwardly to show the manner of connecting the flaps 7) and b of the two adjacent cartons. \Vhen the flaps b and b of two adjacent cartons are connected by the tongue 5 and slit 6 of the flaps Z2 and Z), the ends of the connected cartons are held closely adjacent, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. It is obvious that the flap Z) of the carton A and the flap b ofthe carton A may be.

utilized to connect these cartons in the same manner to other similar cartons.

By utilizing the inner flaps to connect a number of cartons in offset relation at one end and in close adjacent relation at the other end, an arch or a complete circle of cartons may be formed. It is obvious'that the inner flaps Z) and Z) at the opposite ends of the cartons canbe utilized to connect the cartons either with the upper ends in otfset relation and the lower ends in adjacent relation, or to connect both the upper and lower ends either in oflset or adjacent relation. If both the upper and lower ends are connected either in offset or adjacent relation, a straight row of connected cartons may be formed and such a row can serve to form a column or transverse beam in building up the fanciful arrangement or display of cartons. In this way the displayed cartons can be connected together and built up in difierent fanciful arrangements.

in the details set forth without the departure from the essentials of the invention as defined in the claims.

I claim as my invention 1. A display structure comprising two or more cartons each provided with outer and inner folding flaps at its end, the outer Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner otjIPatents,

pair of opposite flaps of each carton having tongues and slits arranged to interlockand connect said flaps-and close the'ends of the carton, one flap of each of the inner pairs having tongues adjacent the outer free edge, the other having slits adjacent its hinged edge and a tongue adjacentthe hinge and edge of one of said inner flaps and a slit adjacent with inner edge of the other inner flap, specifically as described.

2. A collapsible display carton having side walls and pairs of outer and inner folding end flaps a, a and b, b, said outer pairs of flaps a, at having interlocking tongues and slits 1 and 2 adapted to interlock to connect the flaps and close the end of the carton, one of said inner flaps Z) having interlocking tongues 3 and 5 adjacent both its outer free edge and its inner hingeded'ge and the other of said inner flaps 6 having slits t and 6 adjacent its inner hinged edge, said tongues 3 being arranged to interlock with the slits 4 ofthe flaps of similar car- .tons to connect the same in ofiset relation vidual cartons eachhaving flaps interlocked to close its ends and each having other flaps interlocked with the: corresponding flaps of the adjacent cartonto thereby connect the individual cartons of the structure, substantially as described.

A. A display structure built up of individual cartons each having two pairs of opposite flaps at its ends provided with interlocking tongues and slits, one of the pairs of flaps at each end of the carton being interlocked to close the ends of the cartons,

i the other flaps of adjacent cartons being It is obvious that changes may be made interlocked to connect the individual cartons into a display structure, substantially as described.
