Application February 14, 1935, Serial No. 6,429

2 Claims. (01. 206-44) This invention relates to containers, and specifically to those cardboard or press-board containers employed in the marketing of commodities, particularly bread and pastry, in which the commodities are at once segregated in units for selling, protected against deterioration and injury, and displayed to view and rendered attractive and more readily vendible.

In the accompanying drawings Fig. I is a view in perspective of a carton of the invention, filled, as it is intended in this instance to be filled, with doughnuts, the package being in the condition in which it is prepared and presented in the market for sale. Fig. II is a view in medial and vertical and longitudinal section of the filled container of Fig. I. Fig. III is a fragmentary view of the same subject on medial and horizontal section. Fig. IV is a plan view of the cut blank which is bent and interlocked to form the container of Figs. I-III. Fig. V is a plan view of the container showing the body bent and interlocked and filled; and the cover ready to be closed. Fig. VI is a view, partly in section, partly in elevation, of the article as seen in Fig. V,

the plane of section being indicated by the line VIVI, Fig. V. Figs. V and VI serve also to indicate the adaptability of the container of the invention to the reception of other specific commodities.

Referring first to Figs. IIV, an oblong carton is shown, formed of a single sheet of press-board. The sheet is creased and bent to form for the carton with four longitudinal walls and two end walls a bottom I; a top 2; a front wall 3; overlapping and interlocking flaps 4 and 5 that form the rear wall; pairsof overlapping and interlocking flaps 6 and 1 that form the end walls; and a pair of flaps 8, bent-aside extensions of the cover 2, which constitute guides in the closing of the carton and reenforcing members, to give added rigidity to the closed carton. The continuity of the sheet of press-board is interrupted by an opening or window over which a sheet 9 of transparent paper (Cellophane" or the like), applied upon the inside, is secured. Ordinarily this sheet 9 will, in the manner shown in Fig. IV, overlie the sheet of press-board around the entire margin of the window opening, and will be secured to the sheet by a continuous (and preferably moisture-tight) pasted seam It. This sheet of transparent paper forms, when the carton is shaped filled and closed, a window extending in continuity over substantial areas of the front and cover of the carton,

through which the contents may be seen, as

illustrated in Fig. I. Cartons having such characteristics are of common knowledge.

It is essential to a so-formed carton that there be a margin ll (Fig. I) of opaque press-board at the ends of the front and cover of the carton, 5 at the sides of the window. These opaque margins of the window are essential to the rigidity and therefore to the serviceability of the carton and for certain uses at least they are indispensible. Necessarily they conceal in part the con- 10 tents of the carton, elsewhere exposed to view through the window.

This invention consists in providing additional flaps l2, continuous parts of the sheet of pressboard, bent aside from particular panels (in 15 this instance from the bottom I) and then bent upon themselves on the line a to form in the erected carton spacing tongues l3 that project from opposite ends longitudinally within the carton, to rearward of the window margins H 20 and to distances comparable with the width of the window margins II, and afiord stops engaging the contained article or articles and resisting displacement of the contained articles in the direction of the extent of the tongues, and hold- 25 ing the articles in position opposite the window and wholly exposed to view.

As particular exempliflcation, Figs. I-IV illustrate a carton for doughnutsfor six doughnuts, to be packed and sold as a unit. The carton is 30 made longer than otherwise it would be, by an excess length of substantially the combined width of the two margins l I. Flaps l3 of corresponding length are provided, and by and between them, within the box and opposite the window, the 35 intended complement of six doughnuts D is held in place.

Manifestly the carton has this further adaptability, that the flaps l2, provided as and for the purpose described, need not be bent upon them- 40 selves to afiord the spacing tongues l3,but may in the erected carton lie flush against the end walls of the carton, and thus the carton may be adapted, when desired, to receive another complement-for example, eight doughnuts. 45

A refinement in the structure of the spacing tongue I3 consists in providing it with a medial extension M of suitable width to enter the hole in the doughnut that it immedaitely engages. It is apparent that, by proper proportionlng, the 50 complement of doughnuts held by and between opposite tongues l3 may be caused to fit so snugly in place that extended surfaces of contact between adjacent doughnuts will suflice to hold them against easy relative displacement; and it 55 will be perceived that the extensions ll entering the holes in the end doughnuts of the assembly afford security against lateral displace-v ment at points where otherwise the contents of the carton are most easily displaceable. It is manifest, then, that by the provision of the extensions I 4 the filled and closed carton is rendered superior for handling, for it is more secure and durable without break or injury under stresses incident to shipment and handling.

The invention is applicable to cartons provided for containing other particular articles than doughnuts. Figs. V and VI show a carton provided with the spacing tongues described and containing a unitary body, a single cake, C. In this instance a carton of identically the same dimensions is shown, and a loaf of cake of a length substantially that of the assembly of the six doughnuts of Figs. I-III is shown in place between the tongues l3. And here (as is manifestly permissible) the extensions l4 are shown to be bent aside, so as to rest against the face of, rather than to penetrate the surface of, the loaf C.

In Fig. VI indication is afforded in dotted lines of the spacing tongues i3, not bent to spacing position, but lying flush against the end walls of the carton. The tongues being in such positions, the carton is adapted to receive a longer loaf, though manifestly such longer loaf when in place within the closed carton will at its ends be concealed behind the opaque margins ll of the window 9.

I claim as my invention:

1. A carton for a plurality of doughnuts assembled side by side with holes in alignment, formed of a single continuous web of press-board, elsewhere opaque but provided with a transparent area, cut, bent, and interlocked, one face of the carton consisting of a transparent window with opaque margins, the carton including a spacing tongue formed integrally of the said web of press-board, cut and bent and in the erected carton extending into the space within the carton in a position adjacent the margin of the said window and adapted to afford abutment for the end doughnut of a complement assembled within the carton, and the said spacing tongue being additionally provided with an extension adapted to enter the hole in the end doughnut of the line and to afford resistance to lateral displacement of the end doughnut of the complement within the filled carton.

in the container to rearward of the opaque margin of the window-including longitudinal wall, such tongue adapted to sustain upon its end the engagement of the contents and to resist displacement of thecontents in the direction of its extent and to a position of concealment behind the opaque marginal portion of the aforesaid window-containing side wall.
