A. FREELAND VENTILATED CONTAIN Sejiit. 2?,"1924.

Filed Au 23 Patented Sept. 23, 1924.

UNITED STATES ANSEL FREELAND, OF NEVADA, IOWA.

VENTILATEID CONTAINER.

Application filed August 23, 1923. Serial No. 658,920.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANsEL FREELAND, a

, citizen of the United States, and a resident of Nevada, in the county of Story and State of Iowa, have invented a certain new and useful Ventilated Container, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to provide a ventilated container of simple, durable and comparatively inexpensive construction.

More particularly, my invention relates to a container for holding fruits and vegetables for display purposes in grocery stores and markets.

My present invention is designed to contain various fruits and vegetables for display purposes and can be used in connection with my co-pending application for patent on a display counter, Serial No. 635,646, filed April 30, 1923.

Still a further object is to provide a container structure wherein the side and end Walls thereof are provided with a plurality of spaced ribs, which extend inwardly so as to prevent any of the commodities within the container from resting flush against the walls thereof.

Still a further object is to provide a plurality of openings arranged in the side and end walls of the container between the ribs formed therein, so that the commodities within the. container may not rest flush against the openings and thereby prevent proper ventilation.

Still a further object is to provide the bottom of the container with a plurality of up-struck ribs, so that the commodities placed within the container may not rest flush against the bottom thereof, but will be spaced somewhat therefrom, so that the spaces between the up-struck ribs will permit air to circulate therethrough and around the commodities.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a top plan View of one of my ventilated containers.

Figure 2 is a side elevation of the same, showing the depressions in the side walls, which form the ribs on the interior thereof,

together with the openings for ventilation purposes.

Figure 3 is an end view of the container.

Figure 4: is an enlarged, detail, sectional view taken on the line 4 lof Figure 2'; and

Figure 5 is a sectional view of a portion of the container showing some commodities therein for better illustrating the invention.

In the accompanying drawings, I have used the reference character A to indicate generally a sheet metal container, which is formed with a bottom 10, and walls 11 and side walls 12.

The upper edge of the end and side walls are rolled, as at 18, for receiving a reinforcing wire 14.

The end walls midway between their sides and substantially near their upper ends are provided with handles 15. The handles 15 are secured by rivets 16 extending through the handle and the end walls.

The parts just described are of the ordin ary construction.

It may be mentioned that the side Walls of the container, as well as the end walls thereof, are inclined downwardly and inwardly, so that the bottom of the container is of less size than the upper open top thereof. 1

The side walls 12 are provided with a number of depressions 17, which cause to be formed ribs 18 projecting inwardly into the container proper.

The depressions 17 which form the ribs 18 are spaced from each other, so as to leave a portion 19 between the ribs 18.

The portions 19 between the ribs 18 are provided with a plurality of openings 20 for ventilation purposes.

The end walls 11 are also provided with a plurality of spaced depressions 21, which cause to be formed ribs 22 on the inner side of the container. The spaces 28 between the ribs 22 are provided with openings 24 for ventilation purposes.

The bottom of the container is provided with a number of up-struck spaced ribs 25, so that when commodities are placed in the container, they will not rest flush against the bottom thereof, but will be supported by the ribs 25 in such a manner that air will be able to circulate around the commodities, and between the ribs 25.

The ribs 18 and 22 are spaced relatively close together, so that when any fruit or vegetable is placed within the container, it

decay for want of Ventilation.

- In this connection, it may be mentioned that when oranges or such other articlesare placed in a container where there are no ribs and no'ope'ning s, the oranges near the botto-m of the container will rot and decay.

l/Vith my improved container construction, the danger oi this is eliminated. I

The Ventilating feature, together with the arrangement of thespaced ribs is important and gives me a container construction which is efiicient.

It may be mentioned that in a great many I stores where fresh Vegetables and fruits are sold, the fruits and Vegetables are ordinarilyplaeed in containers for better display purposes. (Vith my container, the fruit and Vegetables can be properly displayed without the danger of the bottom portion there of rotting'a nd decaying.

Some changes'may be'made in the const ru'ctio'n and arrangement of the various parts of my ventilated container, without departing from the essential features and purposes of my invention, and it is my intention to cover bymy claims, any modified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents, whlch may be reasonably 1neluded within their scope.

I claim -as my invention 1. In a sheet metal container, comprising a bottom, two endwalls and'two side walls,

the end walls and side wh'lls being in'elined inwardly from their upper edge 30 that the bottom is of less area than the upper open side of the container, a number of spaced upstruck ribs formed in the bottom of the container so that the lower side thereof may rest flush against a support, the side walls and the end walls having their upper edge formed with a head, a reinforcing wire in said head, said side and end walls having a plurality of spaced inwardly extending depressions tor fori'ning spaced vertical ribs, said ribs terminating short of the top and bottom edges of said walls, the portion of the walls between said ribs being proi'ided with a plurality of spaced aligned ventilating openings as and for the purposes stated.

spaced'depressions 'lorined therein for forming spaced inwardly extending ribs terminating short oi the top and bottom edges of walls, the material between said ribs having openings therein as and for thcpurposes stated.

4. A sheet metal container comprising a bottom, two end walls and two side walls, the side walls and the end walls having spaced depressions,formed therein for form- 'ing spaced inwardly extending ribs ier'mi 'nating short or the top and bottom edges of said walls and arranged in a vertical plane,

the material between said ribs having openings therein and said bottom havingupstruck ribs therein.

ANSEL FREELAND.
