UNITED STATES WILLIAM PEACOCK, OF LITI'IZ, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO WOOLWOBTH CHEMI- CAL COMPANY, OF'L'ITITZ, PENNSYLVANIA, A CORPORATION OF PENNSYLVANIA.

CONTAINER FOR' TABLE? SILVER.

Application filed June 19, 1925. Serial No. 38,264.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known thatI, l/VILLIAM PEAoooK, a citizen of the Unit-ed States, residing at Lititz, in the county of Lancaster and State of'Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Containers for Table Silver; and I do hereby declare the following, to be afull, clear, and exact description ofzthe invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains-to make and use the same. 7

This. invention relates to containers for table silver and the like, and has for its object to provide a'roll or container therefor which. is more efficient inuse than those heretofore proposed.

'With these and other objects in View, the invention resides in thenove'l detailsof construction and arrangement of parts as will.

Figure 2 is a plan viewofthe parts shown I in Fig, 1 after the first operation has been completed, of'folding the container;

Figure 3 is a plan View of theparts shown in Figs. 1 and 2, after the'second fold of the closing operation s Figure a is a plan view ofthe parts shown in Fig. 3, and illustrating the next step in the voperationof'folding; c

Figure 5 is' a viewsimilar toFig. 4,1showing a still further stepiin the folding operation;

Figure 6 is a plan viewi of the folded and tied'roll;

Figure 7 1s a fragmentary sectional View taken as on theline 7.7 0f'Fig..1, and

looking in the direction of the arrows; and Figure 8 is an enlarged detail sectional view illustrating the sealingiof one ofthe compartments adaptedto hold a piece of silver.

This invention is drawn to those rolls or containers for silverware such as are in com- 'mon use, which comprise a series of pockets into each of WhlCll ls' sllpped one of they pieces of table silver. It has been found heretofore that silverware after being cleaned and polished, and then placed in one of the above mentioned rolls or containers and put away either in a showcase, buffet, or elsewhere, has not been prevented from tarnishing by the action of the sulphides in the air. That isto say, when a roll of silver has though said silver was cleaned and polished before being put away in one of these containers. It is therefore to prevent the tarnishing of silver in such a roll as above de scribed, that this invention is directed.

The container or roll is composed of-the usual outer piece of colored flannel 1 and the inner piece of'flannel2 suitably stitched together around the edges as at 3. Between these two pieces of flannel, however, is inserted a sheet 1 of a .pyroxyline' nitrated cellulose sheet material, or other suitable non-porous and pliable materialadapted to prevent the passageof air therethrough.

Referring particularly to Fig. 1, another sheet of this pyroxyline material indicated at 5, is placed through the central portion of the container and stitched, as at 6, and 7, to form the pockets 8 closed at oneend and adapted to receive'the pieces of'silver, one of which is indicatedas at 9. Tabs 10 are provided in this sheet 5 of pyroxyline material and disposed at theopen ends of the pockets 8 for a purpose that willpresently appear. A suitable tape 12 is secured as at 13, to the sheet of flannel l, for the purpose oftying the rolled container. Suitable fastening devices, such as the well known snaps 15, are

vdisposed as shown in the several views and securedto the sheet 1 of flannel.

Thus it will be seen from the foregoing,

that the. silverware such as the spoons, in-

dicated at 9,.maybefcleaned and polished, placedinthe pockets 8, and the whole container may then be laid flat in an open condition, as shown in Fig.1, in a jewelers or silversmiths showcase for the purpose, of display. The pyroxyline material being transparent will show to good. advantage the'silver in the pockets fformed therewith and thus the necessity of'untyin'g and open"- ing a package of silver isobv'iated. In-this instance, tarnishing ofthe silver in the showcase may-be prevented in any suitable way such for instance as by the use of a soda lime composition of matter, as disclosed in the United States Letters Patent No. 1,538,650, dated May 19, 1925, and applied for by William Peacock and Daniel ray.

If it is not desired to leave the package of silver in the open position shown in Fig. 1, the container may be closed in the following manner. The portion 20, see Figs. 1 and 2, may be folded upwardly and over the sheet of pyroxyline material 5, and then the opposite portion 22 of the container may be folded in a similar manner, thus forming the package as seen in Fig. 3. The right hand portion 24 of the package may then be folded over to the left, as seen in Fig. 4, and the left hand portion 26 of the package may be folded over to the right to form the package shown in Fig. 5. In this step of the folding operation, the snaps 15 will be utilized in the well known manner not necessary to describe, to secure the portions 24 and 26 in folded closed relation to the main body portion of the package. The two halves 28 and 30 of the package shown in Fig. 5 are then brought together and the whole container then tied by the tape 12, producing the finished closed package as seen in Fig. 6. To prevent the accidental turning over of the rounded corner portion 40, see Fig. 2, during the closing operation, there is provided a strip 41 of any suitable stiffening material such as whalebone, fiber stock, paperoid, etc, secured to the container by the stitching 3. It will be noted that there are a plurality of these strips 41, which are so disposed as to prevent the corner being folded or turned over in the closing operation, thus providing an opening through which air may enter the container. In other words, it is desirous in this container to have no double thickness in any one layer of told ed section, but on the other hand to insure the portions such as 20 lying flat and smoothly over the pyroxyline sheet 5 when the same is folded as seen in Fig. 2, and likewise the portion 22 of the container by being provided with the strips 41 will always lie smoothly when folded as seen in Fig. 3.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 8, it will be seen that when the portion 22 of the container is folded over onto the portion 20 to produce the package as seen in Fig. 3, the tabs 10 in the sheet 5 of the pyroxyline will likewise be folded over and assume a position as seen in Fig. 8. That is to say, the tabs 10 will be folded as at 50, and will lie superimposed upon the sheet 5 as clearly shown in said figure. Therefore, any air containing sulphides, etc, which might gain access to the closed container, and pass into the space 51, will be prevented from entering the pocket 8 in which is located a piece of silver 9. Thus, the tabs 1.0 will serve as a seal to each of the pockets 8. In securing the sheet 5 of pyroxyline material to the container, it may be stitched or secured in any other way suitable. If stitched, there may be provided strips of material, as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 7, to prevent the stitching 7 from cutting the pyroxyline sheet 5.

From the foregoing, it will thus be seen that there is provided a container for table silver having an outer layer 1 of soft material with a layer 4 of non-porous material associated therewith. Also there is an inner layer 2 likewise of soft material having associated therewith a layer 5 of transparent non-porous material to provide a plurality of pockets 8 for the pieces of silver. Further, this layer 5 has a plurality of projections or tabs 10 along one side, one tab to each pocket 8, so that when the container is folded each tab 10 will be folded back upon the main portion of the layer 5 so as to effectually close each open end of the pockets 8 to substantially make each of said pockets air-tight. That is to say, the portion 50 of each bent over tab 10 will form an effectual seal, preventing what little air is in the container from reaching the piece of silver in each pocket 8. The reinforcing strips 41 prevent a corner 40 of the container from bending over and thus forming a double fold of the corners whereby air may enter. Last- 1y, it will be seen that the snap fasteners 15 hold the container substantially in air-tight folds by preventing the slippage of the middle portions of the flaps 20 and 22 on the inner turned ever end portions 24 and 26 of said flaps, and the tape 12 is adapted to secure the container in fastened folded position.

It is obvious that those skilled .in the art may vary the details of constuction as well as the arrangements of parts withoutdeparting from the spirit of the invention and therefore it is not desired to be limited to the exact disclosure above except as may he demanded by the claims.

lVhat is claimed is:

1. In a container for table silver the combination of an outer layer; a layer of nonporous material associated therewithg an in nor layer; a second layer of non-porous ma terial associated with said inner layer to provide .a plurality of pockets; means associated with said last named layer of nonporous material to make each pocket substantially air-tight; means to fasten said container in substantially air-tight folds: and means to secure said container in fastened folded position.
