ICE CREAM CONE.

APPLICATION FILED APR.19.1915.

Patented Sept. 14, 1915.

HARRY T. ALLEN, OF EAST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY.

ICE-CREAM GONE.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HARRY T. ALLEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at East Orange, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ice-Cream Cones, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to ice cream cones and has as its object to provide a cone which may be manufactured at less cost than the ordinary cone and which will serve, not only as a receptacle for ice cream, but also as an advertising novelty.

Another aim of the invention is to provide an ice cream cone so formed that the successive portions thereof may be removed as the contents are consumed.

Another aim of the invention is to provide an ice cream cone of such shape that the contents may be more conveniently consumed than is possible with the ordinary cone.

The invention also aims to provide an ice cream cone which may be manufactured from material of such nature as not liable to become softened when subjected to moisture.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the cone embodying the present invention; Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof, the cone being shown collapsed; Fig. 3 is a plan view of the blank from which the cone is formed.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.

The ice cream cone embodying the present invention is preferably made from a blank such as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings, which blank is of paraflin paper or any other suitable material of a non-edible character and of such nature as to permit of advertising matter being printed thereon.

The blank, which is indicated by the nu- 1 meral 1, has a scalloped outline and in forming up the blank, the same is rolled to produce a hollow cone, such as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawings. As clearly shown in Fig. 3, the blank is approximately ovate in form and the upper and side edges thereof are formed with a number of scallops 2 which, in the finished article, serve to reinforce the same and also to render the cone ornamental. As the blank from which the cone is formed is relatively broad, at its lower portion, the apex or minor end of the cone will be efiectually reinforced, due to the rnulti-ply nature of the same. As the blank is substantially of ovate form, when it is rolled to form the completed article, ahollow body havlng the form of a scalene cone will be produced and this body may be flattened out, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings, to permit of a number of the cones being stacked together or the cones may be nested in the ordinary manner. As before stated, the material from which the blank is formed 15 of a non-edible character and it is, therefore, desirable that the cone be so constructed that successive portions thereof may be removed as the contents is consumed. With this object in view, the cone is weakened circumferentially as, for example, by perforations 3, along lines occupying planes diagonal to the plane of the base or major end of the cone. In the present instance, two of such perforations are shown, but it will be understood that a single line may be formed in the wall of the cone or three or more lines may be formed therein. It will further be understood that the wall'of the cone may be weakened in some manner other than by the formation of perforations.

In the use of the cone, when a portion of the contents has been consumed. the portion or section of the cone, indicated specifically in the drawings by the numeral 4:, is severed by tearing along the upper line of perforations 3. After a further portion of the contents of the cone has been consumed, the next lower section of the cone, indicated at 5, is in a similar manner removed. It will be observed that, due to the fact that the lines of perforations 3 occupy planes diagonal to the plane of the base of the body, the angular position of the plane of the base of the body will be varied when the portion 4 is removed and the position of the base will be otherwise changed when the portion fipeciflcation of Letters Patent. Patented Sept. 1%, 1915, Application filed April 19, 1915. Serial No. 22,508.

2. An article of the class described comprising a hollow body having the form of a soalene cone and having its wall weakened along a line occupying a. plane diagonal to the plane of the base of the body.

3. An articleof the class described comprising a hollow body having the form of a scalene cone and having its wall weakened by a line of perforations occupying a plane diagonal to the plane of the base of the body, the line of perforations terminating at each end at spaced points in the perimeter of the base of the body.

4. As a new article of manufacture, an

ice cream cone comprising a hollow body 15 having the form of a scalene cone, the wall of the body being formed with a plurality of lines of perforations, the said lines of perforations extending parallel to each other and nonparallel to the base of the 20 HARRY T. ALLEN. [L.s.]
