- D %AE% PATENT FFTQEQ EARL UNDERW'OOD, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A SSIGNOR TO THE FIRM OF IIREMENTZ & (30., OF NEWARK, NEW JERsEL A COPARTNERSHIP CONSISTING OF GEORGE KREMENTZ AND cent. H. LnBKUnonEn.

' DISPLAY-BOX.

Application filed. May 12, 1916.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, EARL UNnnnwooD, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the borough of Manhattan, in the city, county, and State of New York, have mvented a certain new and useful Improvement in Display-Boxes, of which the following is a specification.

The object of this invention is to provide an effective display case for jewelry, which may be readily converted into a jewelry box for personal use. The box comprlses a body and a hinged lid, the latter having upon its inner side a display surface of velvet or the like to receive the articles, and the construction being such that when the box is used for display the lid is disposed like a tray with the body rising therefrom, the lid being tilted upward from the underlying support and the body slanting back from the perpendicular, in which positions the parts are mutually supporting without tendency to overbalance. In accordance with another feature of the invention the display surface is constituted upon a removable pad which fits within a shallow inclosure on the lid, this pad being held in place by special means hereinafter described.

In the accompanying drawings illustrating the invention:

Figure 1 is a perspective View of the box open, as used for display;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof on a reduced scale;

Fig. 3 is a front view of the box open, when used as a jewel box;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the pad alone; and

Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional View through the cover.

The box comprises a body 1, and a flat cover 2 united with the upper rear portion of the body by the hinge 3. This flat cover carries on its inner face a low projecting wall 4:, which is adapted to fit within the top of the body and which serves the double purpose of reinforcing the cover when closed and affording a shallow recess for display purposes when the box is open. When used for display purposes this recess is occupied by a pad 5, composed of a suitably stiff body with a velvet or other appropriate facing and having suitable holding devices 6 and 7 for the articlesin this instance a pair of sleeve links and two collar buttons.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 3, 1931?,

Serial No. 97,019.

As a means of retaining this pad in place while permitting its ready removal, I have devised a yielding frictional holder, consisting of a band 8 of velvet or the like which is secured around the inner side of the wall 4 with its pile surface facing inward to be engaged by the edge of the pad, which is made of such size as to be entered frictionally within the embrace of this band.

The cover is formed with a wide projecting rim 9, and the bottom with a similar projecting rim 10. The bottom is preferably lined with velvet or the like, as indicated at 11 in Fig. 1.

When the box is used in the store for display purposes, it is placed with the lid resting upon the supporting surface and the body rising behind the cover, forming a background for the display constituted by the articles upon the pad 5. In this 'condi tion, as represented in Figs. 1 and 2, the box is supported by its flanges with both its members tilted in a manner effective for display, one edge of each of the flanges 9 and 10 resting upon the underlying support and the rear edge of the cover flange bearing against the back of the body, whereby the parts are braced rigidly in these positions, the body having sufficient mass to hold the lid and its articles tilted but not so heavy as to over-balance at the relative angle which is permitted by the proportions of'the parts When the set of articles is sold, the box goes with it, and the purchaser, after removing and discarding the pad, reverses the box, as ihown in Fig. 2, when it becomes a jewel W'hat I claim as new is:

1. In a display box, the combination with a cover having a shallow recess in its inner side, and a removable display pad to fit said recess, said pad having a stiff body and car rying article-holding means, of means for frictionally retaining the pad comprising a lining of soft material applied to the in closing wall of the recess and into which the edges of the pad are pressed.

2. A display box comprising, in combination, a body having a wide projecting basal flange, and a cover hinged to the top of the body and provided with a similar projecting flange, the box being adapted to be placed on display with the lid resting at an inclination upon the underlying support and the body standing upon its flange and tilted backward with the flange of the lid bearing projecting beyond said Wall and similar to 10 upon the back of the body and bracing the the basal rim, the boX being adapted to be parts in position. placed on display With the lid resting at an 3. A display box comprising, in conibina inaniationup'on the underlying support and tion, a body havin a Wide projecting basal the body standing. upon its flange and tilted flange, a flat hingec cover having a 10W Wall backward With the flange of the lid bearing 15 upon its inner face adapted to enter the upon the back of the body and bracing the body and inclosing a shallow recess, a disparts in position.

play surface Within said recess, and a rim EARL UNDERWVOOD.
