CONVERTIBLE PAPER BOX Filed Aug. 4, 1950 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Apr. 25, 1933 UNITED STATES EDWARD G. BOGREN, OF PORTLAND, OREGON CONVERTIBLE PAPER BOX Application filed August 4, 1930. Serial No. 472,883.

In merchandising sheet material, for example, Waxed paper, as used in delicatessen shops, bakeries, and the like, for wrapping the articles sold, it is desirable that the sheets be taken from the box only as wanted, to prevent their becoming scattered andsoiled before being used, thus wasting them.

The object of my invention is to provide a combined box and tray for waxed sheets of paper and similar articles. That is to say, a box in which to ship the waxed paper, and by which the contents of the box will be com-. pletely sealed; and by providing the box with a readily removable section, upon the removal of which the seal is broken and the box becomes a mere tray, adapted to give a ready access to its contents; at the same time, by the breaking of the seal of the box destroying a section thereof rendering the box unfit for further use as a storage receptacle, inother words, for articles not to be immediately dispensed.

' A further object of my invention is toprovide a simply constructed box convertible into a tray.

I attain my object in a convertible paper box comprising a rectangular body consisting of a top and bottom, sides and end portions integral with the bottom, the top at one end having a portion. partly severed along lines extending across the top and along the top at the sides a substantial distance from said end, said portion provided with a closure fiap'adapted to be inserted inside the adja I cent end portion of the box, whereby the said endportion may be removed to convert the box into a tray, the bottom end portion of the last mentioned end having a hand opening out therein and the flap of said remov-. able top end portion normally providing a closure for said hand opening. Thus upon the removal of said top end portion the box is converted into a tray at one end exposing the contents of the box and rendering the contents accessible through said hand hole.

Other features of my invention, anddetails of construction are hereinafter further, described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 shows the cardboard blank from which my combined box and dispensing tray is formed; I

Fig. 2 shows the first step in folding the same to form the 'box;

b Fig. 3 shows a further step in forming the Fig. 4 snows the completed box;

Fig. 5 shows a perspective view of the box and illustrates how the waxed paper sheets are packed therein and how the end section is removed to form the tray;

Fig. 6 shows the same after the end section is removed;

Fig. 7 shows the removable end section separated from the tray; and

Fig. 8 shows in longitudinal section how the waxed sheets are arranged in the box and illustrates how the latter may be conveniently removed when serving as a tray.

Referring now to the drawings:

My combined box and tray is formed from a blank (1, see Fig. 1, preferably of light cardboard, or the like, which is scored, as

atb. and folded to form a four-sided body, see Fig. 2, having a top and bottom 0, d, and sides 6, f. A tab 9 is formed along the edge of the bottom d, adapted to be secured, preferably by adhesive, to the side e to form the box. lits h and transverse scores 6 are provided on the blank 0 to form the end flaps j at one end, and k, k, and k at the other,

which constitute the enclosures for the ends of my box, respectively.

The end flapsj are folded one on the other and secured together by adhesive or other means, to form a permanent closure for one end of my box, see Figs. 2 and 3.

The other end of my box is closed by folding the flap k of the top 0 downwardly, the

side flaps 7c inwardly over the flap k, and the flap 102 of the bottom d upwardly and by securing the latter to the side flaps is, preferably by adhesive.

The topc is transversely slitted and perforated as at m and m, respectively, and at the sides onthe scores 6, as at 0, and 0', respectively, so as to provide a removable portion consisting of the end section 1) and the flap k the said portion flap k and integral end section 12 being readily removable as a unit from the top 0, by merely breaking the perforations m and 0.

By this construction, when the sheets as of waxed paper have been placed in the box, see Fig. 5, and the ends closed, the same are protected from injury, dust, and dirt, but by reaking the said perforations m, 0, as shown in Fig. 5, and tearing the end section 12 awa from the main portion of the cover 0, see igs. 5 and 7, my box is converted into a tray from which the top sheet of waxed paper may be conveniently removed.

-A hand opening 7' is formed in the flap k2 which is normally closed by the flap is, but when the end section p is removed greatly facilitates the removal of the paper, as illustrated in Fig. 8.

The cover or top end portion p is provided with a tab-like extension 9 cut out from the adjacent cover or top portion 0, so that the end portion p may be more conveniently seized with the fingers for tearing the same away to convert the box into a tray as illustrated in Fig. 5.

I claim:

A pasteboard box for holding stacked sheets consisting of a rectangular body comprising a top, a bottom, and sides, the top including at one end a top and end section removable on a'line extending entirely across the top near said end and on lines extending from the ends of said line to the end of the box, the top portion of said removable section including a'central, integral cut-out tab to facilitate removal and the end portion of said section fitting within the box and free from the sides of the box whereby it may be removed with the top portion of said section, the bottom of the box having an integral end section provided with a central cut-away opening extending down close to the bottom of the box thereby disclosing and giving access at said end of the box to the stack of sheets contained therein.
