Thep resent invention pertain's'to containers, and'h'as particular reference to. an improved container of the type adapted for display purposes in the packaging of candy bars. and thelike.

5 In the packaging .of many commoditiesit is.

customary to employ a cardboardcarton or container; of a capacity'for'fthe receipt oitWelve or twenty four units. Fofdisplay p'urposes,.as on the ordinary show caseorciga'r'counter in the l instance of many products, it ,is desirable to-present the articles packaged.v in a sfiull view as possible. Where the container: is completelyfllled when originally packed, it is diiilcultto obtain a proper display of the articles packaged due to l thecrowded conditionwithin the container. It has been suggested in the packaging of candy bars only topartially illl the originalicontaine'r with candy and to complete the filling of the container by use or stuflings such asexcelsior I 20 and paper. Obviously. thistypebf packaging is objectionable; due to the usepf an unnecessarily large"container and the increased costoilthe packaging; l

A principal object of the present. inventioni's g 25 to provide an expansible container, which in one sition' will present a relatively small-volume or capacity and in another position will present side walls 22 and 23. zThe auxiliary "side wall 22 is provided with a central scoreline 24, and auxilis provided with a similar score a relativelylarge volumeor capacity. An additional object is to' provide a .display 1 carton which is foldable into a relatively .small receptacle adapted to be substantially completely filled with the articles packaged andunfoldable into a receptacle of greater capacity ioraeifective displayv'alue. "A still further v V package-in which candy bars and the like-may be shipped in closely compacted relation and operable to be extended for display purposes so that the candy bars may be tilted iorbetter pres 0 entation to the eye of a purchaser.. Y

-These'and other objects will be observed-from a considerationof the following description of a'preferred embodiment of the invention andby reference to the accompanying drawings in which 45 "Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a package constructed in accordance with my invention;

object is 1 the p v o 11 a Fig. 6 isa sectional view, taken alongline 1-6 of'Fig. 2; and v U a 3" Fig. '7 is asectional view,takenalongline 1-1 of Fig. 3, with a number; of the candy bars removed from the-container.

In accordance with my invention, I have pro- 1 vided an; improved container particularly adaptedfordisplay purposes and which is provided wlthopposed auxiliary side walls scored and foldable. or collapsible to form a relatively small rel;- ceptacle or contaiuenand linioldableto produce a container of greater size.

Asshown in Fig.- 4 of the drawinga'the blank from which the containeris'produced is provided withtaibottom memberrlfl provided with side tions II and i2 separatedthereiromby-meapa" of score lines iii-and Llllrespectively. The 'i'rcnif :oi the bottom memberis joinedsalong the s00" line [5 with an outer front-wall l6; Theiront wall structure. is completed by an inner front'wil i1 joined to-the' outer front wall along thescoie line l8, and'an attaching flap I9 joined to the To the front "ends of: side walls Hand 12 are joinedtheattaching flaps and 2| respectively.

The rear edges of frontwalls H and I2 are respectively joined along suitable score lines to by. the attaching flaps 26, one-of which is secured along the score line to each of the auxiliaryside walls"22:and'23. To provide for assembling the l,

container the flaps 26 'are'providedwith complementary locking elements 21 and '20.

-' Bottommember III- is joined along scoreline to an auxiliary bottom member 30, and the latter is joined along score line 3| to an auiiiliary' rear wall member 32, "The-auxiliarybottom member 30 if desiredmay beprovidedwith an intermediate scorexline-iifto render it more ToEerect-=the container, the sidewalls II and I2 -.,are rotated about score lines l3 and 14 into vertical positionand flaps'20 and 2i are rotated into a vertical position-above the score line 15.

:Outeriront wall l5 then is rotated into yertlcal position in front oithe flaps 20 and 2| and inner .front wall I! is rotated downwardly on the opposite sides'oi flaps 20 and 2|. The erection of the frontwall is completed by interlocking map is beneath the locking element 34,- as indicated in Figs-5, 6,and'1. I

6 locking element 21 is inserted in the corresponding slot 28. I

After interlocking the flaps 26 to formthe' rear wall the auxiliary side members 22 and 23 may be folded or collapsed by pressing inwardly on 10 the central portion thereof to'produce a bend along score lines 24 and 25 until the auxiliary side members lie in folded or doubled relation I will be applicable to other commodities. All such seen in Fig. 6. In this position the auxiliary rear 15 wall extends upwardly on. the interior of the folded auxiliary side walls, the container, then, forminga. receptacle of relatively smallcapacity.

along the interior of the "rear wall as may be When the auxiliary side members arefolded as described to form a relatively small receptacle, the latter is adapted to hold twenty-four bars of candy, as shown in Fig. 2; in closely compacted relation. That is, the restricted container is completely filled with three rows of eight candy bars in each row. The package is formed by erecting jthe container'and'folding the auxiliary I side walls to form the relatively small container E andv filling the container as shown-in Fig. 2.

.After completionof the filling operation, a cover member ,35, which may beof conventional design, is placed about the package shown in Fig. 2 and in encompassing relation. with respect to the rear wall, thereby maintaining the auxiliary side ,walls in folded position;- The resulting package is compact, rigid and? economical of production,

@ and requires'a .minimum of shipping space.

member .32 may be-folded over: tops of the candy bars when the. auxiliary side walls are in folded 'condition. 'In-someinstances-it will be found 7 desirabletofoldthe auxiliaryv rear wall 32 backwardlyabout'thelscore line.3l toavertical position external of the lock fiaps 26, this position beingidesirablein thatitfacilitatesthe proper mounting of the cover Jmember 35 about the package. In other instances, it may be found desirable to place the auxiliary bottommember 30 in. vertical position on the exterior of the interlocked flaps 26 and to lock the rear wall portion in folded condition by folding the auxiliary rear 50 wall member 32 downwardly on the interior of the folded auxiliary side .members, a locking mechanism similar to elements employed to complete thestructure. when it is desiredato display the candy bars, 5 the cover 35 may be removed-and the auxiliary side walls moved intov unfolded position as shown inFig. 3. In this unfolded position 'a container of relatively large size is produced and it then ispossible to-tilt thecandy bars backwardly into 60 an angular position which is highly effective for display purposes, z

It is preferred to-construct the auxiliary bottom member 30 of such dimension that it en- I gages the rear, wall somewhat above the bottom 65 of the container when the auxiliary side walls I arein unfolded position, as shown particularly well in Fig. 7. Annadvantageof this structure is that, when numerous :candy bars are. removed the back ends of therearmost candy bars are 7 70 supported inrajsed position so that substantially bars of the row sliding forwardly in less over- 75 lapped relation.

I95 and 34' being In its unfolded or display condition the container is even more advantageous from the standpoint'of display than is the ordinary container of larger original size. Inthis manner more effective results are obtained at a considerably reduced cost of manufacture.

It will beobvious that many changes in the structure described herein for purposes of explanation and description may be made without departing from the scope of the invention. For example, the invention has been described with respect to the packaging of candy bars, but it changes and modifications are intended to be included in the appended claims.
