SAMPLE SHIPPING PACKAGE Filed Dec. 22, 1934 I Patented Nov. 17, 1936 PATENT OFFICE SAMPLE SHIPPING PACKAGE Alfred Cohen, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Lady Esther Company, Evanston, 111., a corporation of Illinois Application Decembcr 22 1934, Serial No. 758,777

1 Claim. (01. 206-82 This invention relates to sample shipping packages and has especial reference to packages of this character particularly adapted for shipping samples of cosmetics such as rouge or face 5 powder.

, The object of the invention is the provision of a package of this character which is simple and inexpensive to manufacture, attractive in appearance, and which provides ample protection 10 to the samples being shipped.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a package arranged to display a number of difierent samples in such manner that they can be readily subjected to visual examination and comparison.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following detailed description of a preferred embodiment of the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing. It is to be understood, however, that many changes in form, construction, arrangement and materials can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as expressed in the appended claim.

Referring to the drawing,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a completely assembled package, including samples, embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken approximately on the plane of line 22 of Fig. 1.

. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the body portion of the package.

The invention resides generally in the provision of a light, flat body suitable for mailing and pro 3 viding a series of receptacles for rouge, powder or the like, efiectively protected but readily visible; and it consists further in a novel construction and arrangement facilitating the use of printed designations suitably-characterizing the samples.

40 In the particular embodiment illustrated, the body comprises a thin, fiat plate I of cardboard or like material, having a row of perforations 2 therein, herein shown as circular in form. Upon the bottom of the plate I is adhesively attached-a 45 sheet 3 of paper which serves to provide a bottom foreach of the perforations 2, thereby forming shallow receptacles for receiving the sample material 4.

To facilitate their production, the samples are 50 preferably, made up by depositing a suitable amount of the sample-material 4 in shallow, open containers or cups 5. These cups are preferably formed of metal or other suitable material with outside diameters substantially equal to the di- 55 ameters of the perforations 2 of the plate I. The

cupsare thus enabled to fit snugly into the receptacles formed in plate i and their upper edges lie in substantially the same plane as the upper surface or face of the plate.

With the cups containing the various samples 5 in the proper receptacles in plate I, a cover sheet 8 of Cellophane" or other suitable transparent material is placed over the upper surface of the plate I and adhesively attached thereto. The sheet 8 serves to retain the cups 5 in place and, 10 being transparent, permits the samples to be visually inspected and compared without necessitating the opening of the package.

-The use of the transparent cover sheet also permits the printing of sample identifying matter and other data directly on the body plate I which is provided with a smooth and relatively close textured upper surface suitable for printing. This facilitates printing and permits the printed mat- ,ter to be displayed in its most attractive form.

tion particularly adapts it for shipment through the mails as the carrying charge for the package itself is kept at a minimum. Thecomplete closure of the sample receptacles formed in the body member prevents the spilling and loss of any sample material that may become separated from the main body of the sample. This construction also serves to retain the samples in their proper positions in the perforations in the body member so that they are protected against injury due to rough handling incident to shipment.

The provision -of a plurality of receptacles in the body member and the use of a. transparent strip for covering the same is also an advantageous feature of the invention. Samples differing from each other in some characteristics, for example, color, can be placed in the different receptacles and can be suitably identified by designations printed on the body member. The cover strip will retain the samples in their proper positions while, by virtue of its transparency, it will permit visual examination of the samples and their designations thus facilitating comparison of the same.

I claim as my invention:

A sample shipping package comprising, in combination, a plurality of relatively shallow cylindrical cups for holding sample portions of powdered cosmetic material or the like, a rectangular body member of cardboard or other fibrous material of relatively light weight having a smooth upper surface of firm texture suitable for the receipt of printed indicia and having a thickness substantially equal to the depth of one of said cups, a plurality of annular apertures perforated in said body member, said apertures being arranged in a row extending longitudinally of the member near one edge thereof so as to provide a suitable area in the upper portion of the memher for the receipt of printed indicia and suitably spaced apart in the row so that the resistance of I the member to transverse bending is substantially unimpaired, each of said apertures being formed to receive one of said cups with a snug fit, a relatively thin rectangular strip of opaque material adhesively secured'to the bottom surface of the member and covering said apertures, and a rectangular strip of transparent material adhesively attached to the uppersurface of the member and covering the apertures and the sample cups dis-
