SEPARATOR FOR CARDS- IN A BOX v Filed June 15, 1928 Patented Aug. 16, I932 Fri HARRY W. KING, OF. EHIlLAIDELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA SEPARATOR FOR CARDS IN A BOX Application filed June 15;

The present invention relates to an improved separator for use in a box for the V purpose of separating cards especially Christmas cards, though all kinds of decorated cards and their envelopes maybe kept separated, it is also possible to use this separator in boxes for separating letter paper or the like.

.It is well known that various cards, such as Christmas, Birthday, Easter, and similar cards and their envelopes or letter sheets and the like are arranged in a box, one stackfor each end of the box, and due to the box being handled, the cards, envelopes and the like in one stack get intermingled with those of the other stack, the box of cards when on display presenting an untidy appearance.

It is therefore, the purpose of the present invention to keep the cards, envelopes and the like separated, permitting the box with the cards therein to present a neat appearance.

Another purpose is to provide a separator made from a single piece of material preferably card board or the like having a central up-bent portion and two parts, one on each side of the up-bent portion to underlie the cards or the like, with the up-bent portion between the two stacks of cards, there being a seal cut from the up-bent portion with opposite portions of the seal to overlie the two 7 stacks of cards, the seal forming an integral part of the up-bent portion, thereby keeping the cards separated, preventing them from intermingling due to the handling of the box, and at the same time holding the cards down. Another purpose is to provide a separator, the lateral parts on opposite sides of the upbent portion constituting an instructing sheet and order blank, the former having thereon the words Use order blank for another box the latter having the words. Order blank, so that when the cards contained in the box are used, the owner of the box owing to the directions given on the instruction sheet, will tear off the order blank, fill the same out and forward it to the manufacturer for another box of cards.

Still another purpose is to provide a separator having a seal forming an integral transverse, portion 1928. Serial No. 285*,606.

part of the up-bent portion, theseal being of an ornamental character, which will" a neat appearance-to the box of cards. It is to be understood that the particulars herein givenare in no waylimitive, and that while still keeping within the scope of the invention, any desired modification of 'de-' present tails and proportions may be made in the 1 construction of the appliance according'to circumstances.

' p The invention comprises further features and combination of parts to be hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawing and claimed. In thedrawing: r V Y Figure 1 is a perspective view of a box with the cover removed, of cards, with the s'eparator in position and the seal overlying the cards. Figure? is a longitudinal sectional view on line 2 2 of Figure 1, but showing the cover in position. i Figure 3 is a detailed perspective view of the separator removed from the box.

"Referring to the drawing, 1 identifies box, which may be'constructed of-any suitable material preferably card board'or the like, and which may be any sizeor shape, and 2 is a cover.

' In the present instance the box'contai'ns two stacks of cards 3. These may be Christmas, Birthday,- Mothers I day,j-Easter or 'sim ilar cards, or'enve lopes'therefor, and 4t identifies a separator, which maybe any size and shape, constructed in one piece and made of any suitable materialpreferably card board. I

The one piece separator is originally fiat, but is scored at 5 and'6, so that the'central of the one piece can be up-bent'as shown clearly in F-igure s2 andv3. One of the scores piece separator can be detached. The perforations are shown in Figured 1 The upbent portion 7 of theone piecesepara-tor may be any size, according to where the-scoring is made and according to the size of, box to be used. The central part of the up-bent pors 6 may be in the form of perforatlons, whereby one end of the'one showing two stacks v tion carries'an integral seal 8, and before the up-bent portion can be formed-theseal' is cut from the sides f the'up-bent'portion, as

shown clearly in Figures 2 and 3, leaving the illustrates where the coloring of the seal begins and ends.

'1 he opposite portions 11 of the seal overlie the two stacks of cards, to retain the cards against upward displacement and keep the topcards from overlying the upper face of the up-bent portion while the up-bent portion keeps the cards separated in stacks, the

seal itself containing a title to the'box and a title for the kind of cards to be kept in stacks; H Y Y In forming theseparator, particularly the up-bent portion 7 opposite lateral parts 12 and 13 are'caused to be formed, the former constituting an instruction sheet with directions 14 thereon, so that when the cards are consumed, the purchaser may bedirected to use the part 13 as an order blank for another box of cards, the words Order-blank 15 being printed on the part 13. These lateral parts 12 and 13 underlie thetwo stacks of cards in thebox, and when the one piece separator is bent on the scored lines 5 and 6, the'up-bent portion may be of rectangular formation. 'Preferably the sides of the up-bent portion before placed in the box with the two stacks of cards on the opposite parts 12 and 13 may diverge slightlytoward the vbottom, so that the remote side edges of the extremely close position to the ends of the box, while the separator element is adapted to assimie a position between the two stacks, said separator element having a substantially circular piece simulating a seal stamped from the element, said circular piece having lateral parts to overlie the tops of the two stacks of cards, to prevent the cards at the top of one stack, one of said lateral portions at the base ofthe separator element being scored where it connects with the element, whereby it'may be detached.

2. A separator for a plurality of stacks of cards formed from a single sheet of material bent to form an inverted U-shaped portion and lateralextensions at the extremitiesof the legs of the U-shaped portion, the latter to lie on the bottom of a card containing box and disposevthe U-shaped portion centrally thereof, the sheet being punched adjacent the linesof fold of the legs of the U-shaped portion to provide integrally extending parts in the-plane of the: web of the U-shaped portion to overlie and-keep inplace the uppermost cards of stacks lying upon the lateral extensions and abutting the legs of the U-shaped portion.

in testimony whereof he affixes his signature.

HARRY W. KING.

stack from mixing with the cards of the other I parts 12 and 13 may assume close position to the ends of the box, as shown in Figure 2.

Obviously it is to" be noted that the separator will keep the cards in their respective stacks, preventing them from intermingling, v and also due to the seal, keeping the upper cards from overlying the top part of the up-bent portion, When the box is empty, the owner of the box may detach the order blank 13 and write instructions thereon for another box of cards. V 7

The invention havingbeen set forth, what is claimed is: 1

1. As a new article of manufacturaa separatorfor stacks ofcardsin a box, said separator consistingof a singlesheet of material bent U-form, the U form being transversely and centrally between the ends of the sheet andacting as an upstandingseparating eleing element, said lateral portions adapted to 'ment ausing laterally disposed Porti b formed at the lower part of the upstandunderlietwo'stacks of cards'to a point-in V
