Continuation of application Serial No. 465,492, July 3, 1930. This application January 3, 1933,

Serial No. 649,837

2 Claims.

The present invention relates to containers, such as transparent cellulose sheeting, and constitutes a continuation of my co-pending application, Serial No. 465,492, filed July 3, 1930.

Transparent cellulose sheeting, such as the product known as regenerated cellulose, is coming into extensive use for wrapping and packaging purposes. Its use, however, has been more or less haphazard, wrapping therewith having {1?0 been accomplished more or less in the same fashion as goods are wrapped in ordinary paper.

An important object of my invention is to form finished containers, composed principally of Cellophane or the like, which can be sold to the merchant and into which he can readily and accurately fill the commodity to be merchandised.

Another important object is to provide a substantial, economical and practical container which retains a definite shape after having been :20 filled.

A further object is to provide a container which is folded into very small space but which can be readily expanded to receive contents.

A further object is to provide a container of '25 this kind having ample surface for receiving descriptive or advertising matter applied by printing, labels, or otherwise.

A still further object is to provide a container of the type described in which access may be had 130 to the interior thereof without disturbing the Wrapping of the container.

Referring to the drawings:

' Fig. 9 is a perspective View showing the procedure for filling the container;

Fig. 10 is a plan view of the unfilled container;

Fig. 11 is a section on plane XIXI of Fig. 10;

Fig. 12 is a plan View of another modified form of container;

Fig. 13 is a bottom view of the container of 55 Fig. 12;

Fig. 14 is a section on plane XIVXIV of Fig. 13;

Fig. 15 is a section on plane XV-XV' of Fig. 13, showing the manner of expanding and filling the container; and

Fig. 16 is a transverse cross section of the container when expanded and filled.

The containers shown comprise the two elements I and 2. The element I defines the shape of the container and is of comparatively stiif material such as cardboard. The element 2 is the wrapping or merchandise enclosing element and is preferably a piece of transparent cellulose sheeting, although other suitable material such as paper, parchment, fenestra, glassine, foil, or any combination of these, may be used.

For the container shown in Figs. 1 to 4 a rectangular piece of transparent cellulose sheeting or other suitable material is used, its longitudinal edge sections 3 being folded around and secured to the outer face of the shape defining and backing board I. The end of the transparent cellulose sheeting is then folded to form the bottom 4 for the container, the corners being first given triangle folds as indicated at 5, and the end section or flap 6 is then secured against the board I at the ends thereof. The other end I of the transparent cellulose sheeting remains open to receive the merchandise. The purpose of the triangular iolds at the bottom is to permit this end of the container to fold in such a position that it will eliminate the surplus transparent cellulose sheeting from extending out from the container in a disorderly fashion.

In the process of assembling the container the transparent cellulose sheeting may be made With tuck-in, satchel, or fold-in sides as best illustrated in Fig. 4. The extent of the fold-in sides determines the depth or capacity of the container. In fabricating a container, a piece or transparent cellulose sheeting is first laid fiat on a support, then a suitable template is placed on the transparent cellulose sheeting, and on top of the template is placed the backing board I. The template may be larger than the board and the diiierence in dimensions will determine the volume of the container or the extent of transparent cellulose sheeting to be tucked or folded in. The sides of the regenerated cellulose are folded around the sides of the template and secured by suitable adhesive to the board I as indicated at 3. The end of the regenerated cellulose for forming the bottom has its corners first folded as has already been described and then this end section is folded around the ends of the template and its flap section 6 is secured to the board. The template is then withdrawn. The container, after formation, is fiat and of small volume and can be economically packed and shipped.

Referring to Fig. 1 the container can be easily and accurately filled by means of a device such as a scoop 8. The merchandise A, which may be cookies or crackers as shown, is first placed in the scoop and the scoop is then inserted into the open end 1 of the container to bring the merchandise into the body of the container. By then inserting the fingers in front of the merchandise at the outer end of the scoop, the scoop can be withdrawn and the merchandise will be accurately fitted into the container. The end I is then folded over, the corners being first folded in, and the end section or flap 'l' is secured to the adjacent end of the board I, as shown in Fig. 2. The container is now fully closed and sealed and the board I defines the shape of the container and forms a backing therefor and also a surface for the application of advertising or other information, either by printing thereon or by means of labels. If the wrapping element is of transparent material such as regenerated cellulose, the container contents Will be readily visible.

In Figs. 5, 6, and '7 a container is shown for containing candy, nuts, raisins or other small sized commodities. Like the container in Figs. 1 to 4, this container comprises a backing board 9 and a wrapping material ID of regenerated cellulose or other suitable material. The wrapping element is secured along its edges to the longitudinal section of the board 9 and the ends of the wrappers are both secured to the board when the container is made. In order that the container may be filledthe boardhas an opening I I which may be formed by severing a section [2 therefrom along three sides so that this section may serve as aclosure hinged along the line [3. The wrapper element may be folded or tucked in along its sides as shown in Fig. 7 so that the container will occupy the least space for compact and economical shipping purposes. When the container is to be filled the lid I2 is swung open and the contents poured in through the opening I l. The lid is then swung to closed position and may be so held by gummed strips l4 shown, or by means of labels or otherwise. These strips or labels can be readily cut or broken when it is desired to open the lid to extract the contents of the container.

In Figs. 8 to 10 a container is shown adapted particularly for receiving commodities such as bacon. The container is constructed in the same manner as the container of Figs. 1 to 4 except that it is not so deep, and the sides of the regenerated cellulose wrapper M are folded outwardly as indicated at IS in Fig. 11. A scoop or tray IS with the bacon contents thereon is inserted between the wrapping element l4 and the backing board IT, as illustrated in Fig. 9, the scoop being then withdrawn and the sealing end of the wrapper is then folded around the adjacent end of the backing board I! and secured thereto as shown in Fig. 8.

On Figs. 12 to 16 another modified arrangement is shown. In some cases the contents of the container must be better protected against crushing as for example in the packaging of candies such as jelly bars or bars filled with liquid or semi-liquid condiment. For such packaging I preferably provide side Wall sections I9 and 20 and end walls 2| and 22 for the backing board 23. When the container is made the wall sections I9, 2!], and 2| are folded against the backing board 23 while the end wall 22 at the sealing end extends outwardly, as shown in Figs. 13 and 15. The transparent cellulose sheeting or other wrapping element 24 is secured along its longitudinal sides against the bottom of the board 23 and bridges over the top of the board and the folded down side walls thereof. One end of the wrapper is folded and secured to the adjacent end of the backing board, while the sealing end 26 remains open. To fill the container the contents therefor are placed in a scoop 21 having its side walls beveled at the front as indicated at 28. The bottom of the scoop and its inclined edges 28 are inserted between the wall end 22 and the folded down side wall sections I Sand .20: and :then as the scoop is moved inwardly these side-wall sections will be raised. Theend of the scoop will engage under the folded down end wall 2] and willalso raise this wall section and after withdrawalot the scoop the contents retained in the. container will hold the side wall sections in perpendicular position. The end wall section22 is then folded up and the wrapper end 26is folded therearound and secured against the bottom of the backing board. The backing board with its vertical walls will form a rigid container which will protect the contents against pressure andcrushing; and1the wrapper of transparent cellulose sheeting or other material will cover over and protect the contents and make them visible to prospective purchasers.

The various forms of containers shown arefiat so that they can be readily packed intosmall compass in ordinary rectangular cartons or containers. The folding of the wrapper elements at the sides and ends is accurately gauged-so that when the container is expanded it will give-the right capacity for the volume of merchandise to be received therein.

It is evident that changes maybe made injthe size, shape, construction andarrangement of the container without departing from the scope and principles of the invention and I do not, therefore,

desire to be limited except as specified in the 0 appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a container; a bottom -wall; top, side' and end walls folded from a single sheet of tough flexible transparent material and permanently '55
