FLOWER-POT.

momes.

Specification of Letters Patent. Patented NV, 28, 1916.

Application led July 25, 1913. Serial No. 781,189.

To all whom-t may concern.:

Be it known that I, CHARLEs A. INS, a citizen of the United Sta-tes, reslding cupy small space in shipment or storage and which may be ready for use upon receipt of the same. 4

Another object of the invention is to provide a pot of thischaracter 'constructed of a single piece of paper or similar material which has'sullicient body to hold-'the earth and in which the plant may be left at the time of transplanting.

Further objects of the invention will appear as the following description is read in connection with the accompanying drawing, which forms a part of this application, and in which V Figure l is a plan view ofthe blank from which the pot is formed. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the completed pot ready for lling. Fig. 3 'is a vertical sectional view. Fig. 4 shows a perspective view of a .plurality of nested pots.

Referring to the drawing, and particu larly to Fig. 1, the pot is constructed of a blankof paper 1 having its upper and lower edges constructed on concentric lines and its end edges ,formed on radial lines struck from the center employed' in obtaining the arcs of the upper and lower side edges. The 11pper edge of the blank is folded back upon the body to lform a retaining flange 2 and the lower edge is formed in a similar flange 3 which is considerably wider than the flange 2 and is adaptedY to produce a vbottom for the pot when it is placed in operative position. rlhe flanges also form guides which receive one end of the blank, as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. When the ends of the blank are interengaged as shown the pot may be folded to make a flat package or the bottom pushed out into operative position and the pot nested with other pots, as shown in Fig. 4. When the pots are shipped in foldedpposition or in blank form with the a'nges turned up thereon all that is necessary is to interengage the ends and to press out the fiange 3 into bottom forming position.

When the flange 3 is turned down into bottom forming position it will be noticed that it is crimped.

It will be noticed that the cup is substantially frustoconical in shape and that when the earth becomes wedged in the cup that it does not place much strain on the bottom. A t the same time the earth may be forced through the bottom, although holding firmly in position under ordinary circumstances.

The pot may be inserted into the ground at the time of transplanting and being constructed' of paper will rot after a predetermined stay in the ground, thus causing no retarding of the growth of the plant.

What is claimed isz- A flower pot made from a single strip of paper, said paper strip being sector shaped having a long and a short arcuate longitudinal edge, said strip of paper having itsarcuate marginal portions bent back to form reinforcingl portions, thereinforcing portion of the shorter marginal edge being wider than the other, said paper strip being rolled into tubular form, the shorter and wider reinforcing portion being adapted to extend in crimped relation to form a horizontal bottom for the pot the end edges and longer reinforcing. marginal portion lbeing tele scoped and held against-.spreading and displacement by virtue of the crimped bottom, formed by the shorter marginal reinforcing portion of the pot.

In testimony whereof l affix my signature 90 in presence of two witnesses. CHARLES A. HU'rcHINs.

Witnesses:
