Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 5, 1916.
Application filed May 15, 1914.. Serial No. 838,862.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that T, KENNETH l). loose, a citizen of the United States, and a resident oflBoston, in the county of Sufiolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented an Improvement in Biscuit-lBox-Display Devices, of which the following description, inconnection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification, like characters on the drawings representing like parts.
This invention relates to display devices for biscuit boxes and the like.
Tn order that the principle of the invention may be readily understood, have disclosed a single. embodiment thereof in the accompanying drawing, wherein- Figure 1 is a side elevation of my display device in use; Fig. 2 is a plan view of the supporting element of my display device; Fig. 3 is asection thereof upon the line 3-3 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4: is an end elevation thereof; Fig; 5 is a plan view of the blank from which the said supporting element of the display device is 'formed;" and Fig. 6 is an end elevation of said supporting'elee ment in a partially assembled condition.
It is customary among biscuit manufacturers to'ship biscuit boxes to dealers with a pair of coversfor each box, one being opaque and on the box when shipped and the other accompanying the box and provided with a glass or other transparent area, so that when the latter cover is substituted for the former, the contents of the box will be disclosedand at the same time protected.
Such transparent covers and boxes are usually ornamental, so that the dealers may disclose them in. convenient positions. In order to display the contents of the box, it is customary to tilt the latter, this being frequently efl'ected by tilting the box so that the front edge of the base of the box rests upon the shelf. It has also been proposed to provide props or like means to support the box at an incline within its opaque cover.
My invention relates more particularly to devices of this character, an important object of the invention being to provide a device which may readily be shipped in sheet form, but which when assembled will support the box firmly and readily.
lEtefer-ringv more particularly to the drawings, wherein I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the cracker or other box is represented at 1 in Fig. 1, the preferably opaque cover thereof at 2 and the display or partially transparent cover at 3. These parts may be of any desired construction. Preferably, however, the box and covers are formed of tin, the cover 3 having a transparent panel or portion. The cover 2 is provided with a surrounding rim 4, Within which I position a supporting device, preferably consisting of a blank 5 of cardboard'or other suitable relatively stiff material, which, as herein shown, I preferably fold along longitudinal lines 6 and 7 to provide an upperinclined face 8 and depending side walls 9, 10, preferably of tapering or triangular shape, and along a transverse line'll to provide an end wall 12 and flaps 13, 14, the blank being out along lines 15, 16 to provide inner edges of said flaps. While any suitable-means may be provided for holding the device in assembled position, I preferably provide one or more flaps, and herein two, which are provided with interengaging or locking means, hereimtypified as a slot 17 in the flap l4, and a tongue 18 formed upon the flap 13. When the flaps 13, 14: are brought together-and secured by the interengagement of the tongue and groove 17, 18, the device is firmly supported in assembled condition, and when positioned within the inverted cover 2, supports the box 1 thereon, as illustrated in Fig. 1.
While the supporting device may be of I the base of the rim 2.
The inclined supporting device may be of any suitable width, but preferably is considerably less than that of the box 1, which frequently is square, or substantially so, in horizontal section.
' It will be evident from the foregoing description that the supporting or display device is of substantially inexpensive character, so that it may be readily shipped flatwise or in sheet form and may be readily assembled in supporting'position.
Having thus described one illustrative embodiment of my invention, I desire it to be understood that although specific terms are employed, they are used in a generic and descriptive sense and not for purposes of limitation, the scope of the invention being set forth in the following claim.
I claim:
A receptacle or like supporting device, consisting of a sheet of relatively stifi' material folded along longitudinal and transverse lines, and having an upper inclined elongated and relatively narrow supporting face, opposite depending lateral triangular supporting walls, each of the same length as said face; a depending rectangular sup- KENNETH D.
