RETAILING CONTAINERFOR FRUIT AND THE LIKE Filed Feb. 17, 1934 Patented May 14, 1935 RETAILING CONTAINER FOR FRUIT AND THE LIKE Carl Monschein, Vienna, Austria, assignor of onefourth to Gerhard Greiner and one-fourth to Josef Reitner, both of Vienna, Austria Application February 17, 1934, Serial No. 711,750

In Austria June '17, 1932 3 Claims.

This invention relates to a new and improved type of collapsible container, more particularly for fresh fruit, which is designed to permit in a simple manner of the washing of the contents 5 of the container under running water, thus fulfilling a need very commonly felt in connection with the purchasing of fruit for immediate consumption. In accordance with the invention the new type of container consists essentially of two substantially conical bags of the commonly employed shape inserted one within the other, the inner of these two bags being closed and perforated at the bottom, and the outer being truncated at the apex or bottom end to provide an outlet orifice. As will at once be understood without further explanation, a double or combined bag of this description can be simply held beneath a stream of running water for the purpose of washing the contents thereof, the waste water being discharged with any impurities contained therein through the outlet orifice at the bottom of the outer bag. In further development of the invention the two bags constituting the novel type of container are stuck together at contacting portions of their respective surfacesin such a manner as to form an intervening pouch or receptacle for refuse, such as skins, shells, stones, pips, and the like.

A form of construction embodying the invention is shown by way of example in the accompanying drawing, in which: Fig. 1 shows the outer bag, Fig. 2 the inner bag, and Fig. 3 the combined bag constituting the complete container, all three views being in perspective.

The outer bag I has the usual form of folded and stuck bags which are of isosceles triangular shape in the flat condition. The apex or bottom end of the bag is truncated to provide an apera ture 2 The inner bag 3 is similarly shaped, so

that it is firmly held in position when inserted within the outer bag. The sides of the two bags are of unequal length. After the bags have been fitted one within the other the one side of the inner bag stops short of the edge of the corresponding side of the outer bag, while the other side of the inner bag extends beyond the edge of the corresponding side of the outer bag, as shown in Fig. 3. The lower end 4 of the inner bag is folded over and stuck together. The portion thus reinforced is provided with perforations 5, so that the inner bag can act as a strainer. The two bags, in the assembled condition, are then stuck together at opposing points, preferably in the region of the folds.

If desired the two bags can be stuck together merely along the edges of the longer side or flap 6 5 of the inner bag. Between the mid portion of this flap and the adjacentportion of the outer bag there will then be formed a pouch or receptacle in which waste matter can conveniently be deposited in a tidy manner. The mouth of this pouch or receptacle is always easy to find, since the said flap or side portion of the inner bag is not flush with but extends considerably beyond the edge of the adjacent portion of the side of the outer bag, as above mentioned. The cleaning 1 of fruit under running water, as provided for by the present invention, aflords the additional advantage of cooling and imparting an agreeable freshness to the fruit thus treated. The container according to the present invention can suitably be made of cheap strong paper or other equivalent material, the material used being first cut into blanks of four-cornered shape, so that there is no waste of material.

What I claim is;

l. A collapsible container for fruit consisting of two similarly shaped bags of flexible material placed one within the other and stuck together at opposite points with the formation of a pocket therebetween, the inner of the said bags being closed and perforated at the bottom, and the outer of the said bags having an outlet aperture at the bottom.

2. A collapsible container for fruit consisting of two similarly shaped folded bags of flexible material placed one within the other and stuck together along the folds withthe formation of a pocket therebetween, the inner of the said bags beingclosed and perforated at the bottom, and the outer of the said bags having an outlet aper- 40 ture at the bottom. 7

3. A collapsible container for fruit'comprising two bags of flexible material and substantially similar shape placed one within the other, the

outer of the said bags having an outlet aperture at thebottom, the inner of the said bags being closed and perforated at the bottom and having a flap portion extending beyond the upper edge of the said outer bag, the said bags being stuck together along the edges of the said flap portion, as and for the purpose specified.
