6 Claims.
This invention relates to boxes and particularly to boxes designed and adapted for containing merchandise and exhibiting or displaying the same.
The object of the invention is to provide a box having a cover which is constructed and arranged to form a rest for the body portion of the box in which the goods are contained, on which the body portion of the box may be supported in inclined position so as to exhibit or display the goods contained therein to advantage.
Another object is to provide a box cover that will serve as a closure for the box until the goods are received by the merchant, and is provided with score lines or marks along which it can be cut and folded to form an easel or display stand to support the open box in position to display its contents.
Another object of the invention is to provide a display stand made from a single piece of sheet material wherein the body of the material forms the base of the stand and the support or rest, on which the goods are held in display position, is cut from the same piece of material and bent upward into shape to form the rest.
A further object of the invention is to obviate the use of a cumbersome and costly rack as a medium of display, and yet avoid the usual intricate, bulky, or complicated type of support of the kind ordinarily embodied in or on the container of the merchandise to be displayed.
To this end a box of my invention comprises the various features, combinations of features and details of construction hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings in which my invention and its novel features are fully illustrated, Fig. I is a perspective view of the cover set-up in easel position to receive the box it is intended to support. Fig. II is a plan view of the blank from which the cover is formed. Fig. III is a sectional view of the cover taken on the line III-III of Fig. I, showing how a box is supported in display position.
Fig. IV is a perspective view oi a modification of my invention showing another form in which it may be constructed. Fig. V is a plan view of the blank from which Fig. IV is made, and Fig. VI is a sectional view taken on the line VI-VI of Fig. IV.
Referring to the blank from which my drawings, Fig. II shows a improved cover is formed. The top or flat part 7 of the cover has side flaps 8 which are bent down along score lines 9 and secured (as by stapling or gluing) to form the side 1931, Serial No. 534,576

The top is provided with a series of score lines or cuts 10, 1O; 11, a tongue having 11, 12 which outli' transverse score lines 14, 15 on me three sides of which it can be bent to form a triangular rest 16 (Figs.

the box is empty,
or another similar both it and box may be supported on the old cover.

The entire design may be formed by printing on the cover, or it may be formed by a claims to any one style of marking, but the terms are to be considered generic of all.
