Description

July 20, 1937. E'. R. ANDERS INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED BAG PACKAGE Filed June 15, 1935 ATTORNEY.

Patented July 20, 1937 PATENT OFFICE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED BAG PACKAGE Ernst Rudolf Anders, Dresden, Germany, assignor to Millie Patent Holding Co., Inc., New York, N. Y.,. a corporation of New York Application June 15,

2 Claims.

This invention relates to bags of tea and other essence containing products and more particularly is directed to an individually wrapped tea bag package or similar article formed with a 5 sanitary wrapper.

Among the objects of the invention is to provide a novel sanitary individually wrapped tea bag package or similar article which package wrapper shall comprise few and simple parts forming an 10 inexpensive article of neat and attractive appearance, which wrapper shall be easy and cheap to apply, and which article shall be eflicient and practical to a high degree, in use.

.Another object of the invention is to provide a little package consisting of an individual service tea bag and wrapper therefor, the organization being such that the tea bag is retained in the wrapper in relatively fixed position so as to minimize movement of the tea bag within the wrapper and thereby to minimize the possible pulverization of the tea contents of the bag.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims:

In the accompanying drawing, in which there is shown possible illustrative embodiments of this invention.

Figs. 1, 2 and 3 are perspective views showing the successive steps in applying the wrapper to a tea-bag in formingthe package embodying the invention;

Fig. 4 is a front elevational view of the completecl individually wrapped tea-bag package embodying the invention;

- Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on lines 5--5,

in Fig. 4;

Fig. 6 is a top plan view of the'package shown in Fig. 4, and

Fig. 7 is a front elevational view of a modified form of the invention showing the string-handle and tag enclosed in the package.

Referring to the drawing, l denotes a sheet of wrapping material, such as opaque, translucent or semi-translucent paper, or so-called cello- 50 phane which sheet when opened flat has the sides on the opposite ends shaped to converge or tapered, as shown in Illa. The tea bag ll may be of any well understood construction and as here shown is of the pouch type having a string handle I2 anchored under a suitable form of clo- 1935, Serial No. 26,748

sure such as metal closure ring I3 applied to the gathered cover of the pouch bag I I, said string 1 handle l2 being terminated by a tag l4 secured by staple l5.

In forming-the improved package, the sheet ll) 5 has a suitable adhesive applied to the edge portions thereof as at I01) and the tea bag H is placed on the sheet It] with the string handle l2 and tag I 4 outwardly extending as shown in Fig. 2. The sheet In, is then folded over on itself 10 across its mid-portion as along fold line 10c (indicated in dot and dash line in Fig. 2). The edge portions on both ends of sheet ID are brought in register and pressed together until the adhesive applied at IUb sticks, and completely encloses the tea bag II in the wrapper I0, with the string handle l2 extended outside at the shortest edge of the taper M as shown in Figs. 3 to 6, inclusive.

From the above description and drawing it is apparent that this improved form of package can be made without any persons hands touching the tea bag pouch I l and is therefore saniary.

To remove the enclosing wrapper lo, the package is simply held at the fold portion I00 and by exert ng a pull on the string handle l2, the gathered closed end of the pouch will readily rip open the seam at the edge llld and without touching the pouch II it may be immersed in boiling water to brew the tea in the well understood'manner.

In the modified form of the invention shown in Fig. 7, the string handle I l2 of the bag may first be wound up as at 2a on the gathered portion of the pouch l I l and the tag I I4 is preferably positioned to lie flat against the pouch before seala ing the same in the wrapper Ill. The tea bag may be removed from the wrapper III by simply tearing the latter and removing same by holding the tag H4 or string 2.

It should be noted that in both forms of the invention the tapered end closure of the tea bag is disposed substantially within the tapered end of the wrapper. This relationship taken together with the substantially flattened condition of the bag and wrapper and together with the stiffness imparted to the entire package by the adhesively secured marginal portions serves to retain the tea bag in a substantially fixed position in the wrapper and to minimize the movement of the bag within the wrapper. This feature of the present new article of manufacture serves to reduce and minimize the possible pulverization of the tea in the bag during the subsequent handling thereof.

It will thus be seen that there is provided articles in which the several objects of this invention are achieved and which are well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

,As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiments above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illuswardly extending tapered end portion, the contiguous superposed marginal portions of said walls being adhesively secured together to form a substantially fiat structure, said adhesively secured edges serving as stiffening means for retaining said bag and wrapper in flattened condition, the dimensions of the wrapper being substantially greater than the dimensions of the bag, the bag being positioned within the wrapper with the tapered. gathered closure extending in the direction of and disposed within the tapered end of the wrapper and cooperating therewith to minimize the movement of the bag and to retain the same in a substantially fixed position in the wrapper.

2. As an article of manufacture, a package comprising an essence containing bag of loosely woven textile fabric formed with a gathered closure, a string handle attached to and extending from said gathered closure, and a wrapper enclosing said bag, said wrapper being formed of a single elongated sheet folded along the line midway its ends and having two superposed coincident walls, each wall having an oblong portion and a tapered end portion, the contiguous superposed edges of said walls being adhesively secured together, the bag. being positioned within the wrapper with the gathered closure of the bag extending in the direction of the tapered end of the wrapper and the string handle extending through and beyond the tapered end of the wrapper, so that a pull on the string causes the gathered closure of the bag to rip open the seam of the wrapper.
