FOLDING DISPLAY BOX Filed March 23,1955
qpnngnngnn'nnnnnnnn'rn Ifz vefzor: fa/2A: J Colinas atented ci. 29, i935 FOLDING DISPLAY BOX lFrank Joseph Collins, Brooklyn, N. Y., assignor to Warner Brothers Company. Brldgeimrt.l
Conn., a corporation of Connecticut Application Maron 2s, `1935, sonal No. 12,542
`9 claims. (ci. zoe-44) My invention relates to certain new and useful Vimprovements in paper boxes and. refers more particularly to folding display and cushioned boxes such as are designed to contain fragile mer-` chandise as for instance candy animal ngures.
A It is generally recognized in commercial lines that articles of merchandise can be displayed to a distinct advantage when contained in a box having a cover or transparent front so that the prospective` parchaser can readily see the article contained in the box, its specific design as well as the general nature ofthe merchandise, but at the same time, in view oi the more or less fragile It is an object of my invention to produce an inexpensive box of the above class which can be assembled in readines to receive merchandise and to so design and construct the box that the said merchandise will be completely inclosed yet advantageously displayed therein, and at the same time secured and .properly supported so as not to be liable to breakage with ordinary handling. o
Another object of .my invention is the provision of a display box of the character specied'which can be made up of an outer closure or box member and an inner platform so called, thatis designed to yieldably support the merchandise on v li'our sides better to prevent breakage.
With these and other objects in .view the invention resides and consists of certain novel features of construction, as will be more fully described in the following specification and particularlyl pointed out in the appended claims. Inthe accompanying drawing:
'f5' Fig. 1 shows a perspective view illustrating my improved box showing a piece of merchandise,` an Easter rabbit, in dotted lines contained within y the box. K r l Fig. 2 shows a central vertical sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a detached perspectiveview showing the inner or platform member folded ready to. be
inserted in the box member as shown in Fig. .4; Fig. 4 shows a further perspective view of the outer or box member folded in part with the ends will not only be anguiarly disposedbut lpositia open to receive-the platform and merchandise.
and o Fig. 5 shows a plan viewlof the paper blank laid out at with the transparent front pieceattached.l
Referring irst to the formation of the outer or '5 box member and the reference characters marked thereon, see Figs. 4 and 5, it will be seen that it is formed of two pieces and includes a paper blank I0 and a small sheet ofv transparent material II O glued to the inner edgesI2of-the inner side of 10 thatpart of the blank forming the front part of the box.v in a way to cover the window `opening I3 formedinthe blank, 'Ihis box blank shown in Fig. 5 is creased and adaptedto be folded up into the formshown in Fig. 4 with the flaps or side l5 edge portions idf-I4 glued together to form the side I6 which obviously is opposite to the-side I5 and whichv is somewhat similarlyA shapedthough of but one thickness of material. Both of these side members I5 and I6are pro- 20 vided with an. upperfap' Il and a'lower flap la which in the folding of the box areturnedlin to form the corner edges I9and 20 respectively. i The top nap 2i, asy will be noted, serves to close the-' top end of the box with its depending lip 22 'ex- 25 tending down inside. of and against the Y'upper edge portion of the back member 23. ...The lower edge portion of this back member-23 is provided with a creased extension 24 that is adaptedlto be folded in as shown in Fig. Zand is slotted as at-f25 30 y as, shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 5, its remaining portion is disposed down at a right angle to engage the inner face of the lower front portion of the box as shown in Fig. 2.
v 'I'his folding of the member 24 obviously serves 35 to form a base 29 4above and in spaced relation to the bottom and upon which merchandisemay be supported, see Fig. l. In addition to this base formation I also provide a closure ap 30 that'folds under the base to formthe bottom and has its 4=0 edge portion 'tucked in against the up-turned member 21 of the base, and its tongue 25'- disposed through the slot 25, better to support the lower edge portionof the platform -2li; y
. ',The platform 26 is lclearly-shownin Fig. 3 and 5 as will be seen is made of a single piece'rof 'cardboard of lsuitable size and proportions"mid;'- is shaped to form a relatively large plain back h'av-4 ing forwardly disposed parallel side#niembers*fl 32--32 each of which is formed` narrowera'tfthe 50' l upper end than at .the lowerV endfs'orthat when positioned in the boxthebackofthe'-irlafm in spaced relation to boththe. front wan of the box. vThe sides arevortioain creased Il? and disposed outward to form side engaging members 33-33 to engage the inside of the front of the box and also their edges engage the sides I and I6 of the box. An extension 34 is cut out of each of the sides 321 and disposed outward Vparallel to the engaging members 33 so that the back portion of the platform will be` supported against the sides of the box to prevent lateral movement of the platform and the merchandise supported thereby. The upper end portion of the platform is cut and creased horizontally to form a flap that may be folded to produce a forwardly disposed end closure member 35, that includes an up-turned edge portion 3B which is disposed in against the front and top of the box and serves to retain the upper end portion of the back 26 of the platform forward of the lower portion and its member 36 in engagement with the front of the box. These foldable extensions 35 and 36 of the platform are obviously inclosed along with the tabs |1-I1 and the closing flaps 2| and 22 before described, by the top flap 2| as shown in Fig. 2.
From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided a foldable box which is especially adapted for containing and displaying fragile merchandise or the like and which when assembled forms a compartment that is relatively oblong and deeper through the lower portion than the top portion. It is also to be noted that the complete box is constructed to form two or more thicknesses of material upon all sides, the inner one of which is relatively iiexible and thus forms a cushion and a dead air space upon all sides. The container is further constructed so that it may be arranged on horizontal shelves for display purposes so that the merchandise may be presented in an upright position and displayed through the transparent front to the best advantage.
While I have illustrated and described a preferred embodiment of my invention, it will be understood that it is capable of variation and modification without departing from the spirit of the invention. I, therefore, do not wish to be hunted to the precise details of construction shown herein but reserve the right to avail myself of such changes and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.
