UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE CIGARETTE PACKAGE Bruce McPherson, Greenville, S. 0.
Applica ion November 30, 1934, Serial No. 155,492 v 1 Claim. (Cl. 206-48) This invention relates to containers for cigathe front 14 and the cigarette package. The free rettes, cigarette packages or'the like and it is an end of the blank 23 adjacent the crease line 19 is object of the invention to provide a novel contapered to form a tab which also is intended to tainer adapted to be folded about a package of extend within the container to secure the section cigarettes for protecting the same against crush- 2| in place over a portion of the end of the ciga- 5 ing or damage when carried in the pocket of the rette package. A slit or slot 24 is provided in the user and at the same time provide matches for back 13 through which the tab 23 may be inserted. lighting the cigarettes. In order to attach a packet of matches slots or The invention is a further development of the slits 25 are provided in the front 14. The packet invention disclosed in my patent, #1,944,098, and of matches 11 may be attached to the container 10 my application S. N. 717,839, filed March 29, 1934. by opening the packet and slipping the match Referring to the accompanying drawing which covering flap through the slits and then folding is made a part hereof and on which similar referthe cover flap in a manner to cover the matches.

Therefore instead of Fig. 7, a perspective of a further modified twohaving a longitudinal slot in each flap as in the part container, with the parts separated; patent, the slits or slots 25 are provided trans- Flg. 8, an assembled view of the container of versely so that the match packet will be held Fig. 7 with a match card glued thereto, and longitudinally of the container as shown in Fig. 1, 30
Fig. 9, a plan view of the blank of the inner instead of transversely of the container as shown portion of the receptacle of Fig. '7. in the patent.
Referring to the drawing, as shown in Fig. 1 a It will be readily understood also that the inpackage of cigarettes i0 is enclosed by a conventionis not limited to the location of the joint tainer of the character exemplifying one applicaw n t side and from; but Obviously 35 tion of the invention. the same might be placed at any other desired The container has a match packet 1| attached ti thereto and such container is formed of a blank Figs- 3 and 4 Show a' u er modified form of having parallel crease lines 12 forming the back container which, While being substantially th 40 13, front 14 and sides 15 and N5 of the rectangusam'e Container as that of 1 and resembling 40 lar container formed by the folded blank. The the blank of nevertheless. instead of avfree edge of the side 16 has an integral gluing ing the portions of the blank which form closures strip H which underlies the edge of the front for the ends of the container connected by an it whenthe parts are glued together to form a additional body portion 22 as in this D hollow rectangular body. tion is eliminated and flaps are connected directly 45 The blank is further provided with crease lines o th ck of the er- In this embodi- Ill and 19 to form a windowed closure 20 for one ment the blank has crease lines 12' which form end of the container and to form a partial closure a back from and sides 5 and 16. The 28 for the other end of the container, the partial back 13' has the fl p formed ally hereclosure afl'ording an opening through which the with. 59 cigarette package is exposed and consequently The bl of F 3 an 4 is further provided through which the cigarettes may be removed. wi h cr a e lines l8 and 15 which form end That portion 22 of the blank between the crease closures 20' and 2|, the end closure 20 having a lines l8 and I 9, when the blank is folded to form flap 26 for insertion into the container between 5 the container, lies within the container behind the front l4 and the cigar t e P Llkewise the end portion 2| is provided with a flap 21 for similar insertion between thecigarette package and the imnt II or optionally through a slit 24'. In this blank a gluing strip ll' corresponds to and is used for the same purpose as the gluing strip II in the preceding figure and Fig. 2. A container formed in accordance with the disclosures of Figs. 3 and 4 may be preferable in certain instances and requires less material, since instead of long flaps, it has two short flaps, one forming an end closure flap and the other forming a halt closure.
In Fig. 5 is shown a further modified form of container which is similar to the container shown in Figs. 3 and 4. However, instead of the end portions 20' and 2| and associated flaps being both attached to the back as shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the end portions 20" and 2|" are attached respectively to the portions l3" and II" forming the back and front of the receptacle. In addition, the sides l6" and 55" are extended to provide flaps 28 and 29 which cooperate with the portion 20" of the blank to reinforce one end of the container and assist in forming closures therefor. Otherwise, the construction is similar to that of Figs. 3 and 4, the joint of course being locatable in any position desired.
Figs. 7. 8 and 9 disclose a further modified container of two part construction. In Fig. 9 a blank is provided which when folded constitutes an inner member which is slid into an outer sleeve. The blank-of Fig. 9 is provided with. crease lines 30 and 3! and 32 dividing the blank into a bottom 33, ends 34 and 35, flaps 36 and 31 and side flaps 38, when the blank 01 Fig. 6 is folded. As shown in the lower left of Fig. '7 it is adapted to be slid into a receiving sleeve which consists of a rectangular blank provided with crease lines and folded to form a bottom 39, top 40 and sides II and 42, the side 42 being provided with a gluing strip 43 which is attached to the top 40. As shown, a cigarette package being placed in the inner member or folded blank of Fig. 9 is slid into the cooperating receiving sleeve forming blank in the manner shown in the extended view of Fig. 7. If desired, the portions 35 and 3! of the blank of Fig. 9 may be made narrower, corresponding in width to the portion 2| of the'blank of Fig. 2 to afford an opening through which cigarettes may be removed from the package. The sleeve may have its top 40 provided with slits 44 for reception of a match packet as previously described.
To the container of either of the several figures a match card or.match packet may be attached in a number of ways. As shown in Fig. 1 the match card is fastened to the container by having the flap of the match card inserted through slots in the container. The container represented by other figures or the drawing is con-' structed with match card receiving slots.
In Figures 1 and 2 it will be noted that the slots 25 for receiving the flap of the match card are straight. However, these slots are preterably made in the form of angular slits as shown at 25' in Figures 3 and 4, 25" in Figure 5, and N in Figure 7. It will be seen that by forming these slots angularly the match card flap is more easily inserted.
In Figs. 6 and 8 containers are shown having match cards ll attached respectively by stitching and gluing. It will be readily understood that the containers may have the match cards attached in either of the ways suggested or other,
desired manner.
If desired the end of each container may be provided with a window or an opening by means of which the brand of cigarettes may be seen, the blank of Figs. 2 and 3 having a window 45 and 45, the blank of Fig. 5 having a window 46 and the blank of Fig. 9 having a window 41.
It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that various changes may be made in my invention without departing from the spirit thereof and I do not limit myself to what is shown in the drawing and described in the foregoing specification but only as indicated in the appended claim.
I claim:
A container for a package of cigarettes comprising a blank foldable to form a hollow substantially rectangular open-ended cigarette package-receiving body in which the cigarette package is slidingly receivable, said body having a double-walled side and constructed to flt snugly about the exterior of and substantially enclose the package of cigarettes, said blank further having a portion integral therewith providing foldable closure means for the ends and the double wall on one side of the container. that portion of the blank which forms the closure means for one end of the container being of a width to provide an opening in the container through which cigarettes from the cigarette package therein may be removed, the main body of said blank being provided with a plurality of slots in a single side of the double walled side portion thereof for the reception of a match card, a portion of the match card being located between the walls of said double-walled side oi. the container when the blank is folded.
