Description

M. GOLDBERG 2,126,106 DISPENSING AND DISPLAY CARTON Filed NOV. 15, 1934 24 23 INVENTOR 617i D /Iax Goldberg A RNE -tente n. i

armies DHSEPEENSKNG DHSWHJAY iD'JMIiN Mar Gcldherg, @hicago, lili., assignor to Nationai doda dtraw tDompany, i'ihicago, liiit, a corporation of ois Application November 15, 19341, her-tall Na. tfihlldii My invention relates to an improved dispensing and display carton, and the blank for forming it.

The embodiment illustrated is particularly adapted for packaging soda straws, but the invention h is equally valuable for use with many other articles.

Heretofore soda straws have generally been dispensed at fountains and elsewhere by first removing them from the carton in which they are 1W packed and then placing them in a metal or glass dispenser on the counter, table or fountain, from which the customers help themselves. This way of dispensing straws is not entirely satisfactory because the straws must be handled to place them W in the dispensers, and the cost of the dispensers is a considerable expense to the merchant.

My improved carton overcomes these objections because it not only provides a container for the straws but also serves as a dispenser so that the straws are not touched until the customer takes one for his drink. My carton is designed and finished so that it is ornamental as well as useful on the fountain or table.

In the accompanying drawing, I have illustrated one form'that my invention may take, wherein:

Fig. 1 is aperspective view of my improved carton as it reaches the merchant filled with straws.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the top of the box showing how the straws may be removed.

Fig. 3 is a plan view of the top end of the carton withthe top cover removed.

Fig. 4 is the blank from which the carton is formed.

Referring first to Fig. 4, the blank is cut and scored to form front, rear and side panels 5, 5, I, 8. The front panel is ornamented by a window of fanciful design formed by cut out portions 9, 40 I0, and a transparent covering ll made from Cellophane or like material which preferably is glued inside the carton over both openings 9, l0.

At the top, the front panelis cut away at l2 to provide a dispensing opening and at the bottom has a locking flap l3 carrying a locking tongue II. The rear panel 6 has a glue flap l5 along one edge and at its lower edge has a locking flap 16 with slots I! that cooperate with the tongue ll on the flap l3 to close the bottom of the carton. 50 The top panel or lid I8 is connected along a score line Is to the top of the rear panel 6 and at its free end has a tucking flap or tuck 20. A removable portion 2l is defined-by a perforated or cutscore line 22 preferably partly on the tuck 20 and partly on the top Hi. The removable portion 2| (iDil. era-in is here shown as circular but it may he of any desired shape and may be formed wholly on the top it in some instances.

At their lower ends, the side panels i, t have end flaps it, it which are folded in under. the locking flaps it, H to close the bottom ofthe carton. At the top are inner or locg flaps 2t, 26 which are secured together under the top it, as by the cooperating tongue 21! and slit it. The flaps 25, it are cut away or have cut-outs at it, ih'along lines corresponding to the removable portion ill in the top, the edges di, 32 of the cutaway portions meeting the edges of the cut-out ii in the front panel and forming a continuation thereof when the blank is formed into the carton. The window 9, it may be of any design and of course is not limited to the front panel but may be provided in any or all of the four sides of the carton but is most effective in displaying the straws when it is in alinement with the dispensing opening 241, as shown in Fig. 1.

Fig. 1 shows the carton formed from the blank of Fig. 4 and filled with straws 33 which are visible through the window H. The tuck 2!] lies within the front side of the carton and it may be glued thereto in some cases but usually is only tucked in so that the entire top of the carton can be opened if desired,altho the carton is intended to be opened as shown in Fig. 2. The section 2| is torn out along the readily fracturable line 22 which provides a dispensing opening in the top l8 and tuck 20 that registers with the edges of the cut-outs I2, 29, 30 in the front 5 and flaps 25, 26. The carton is then placed on the counter or table and the customers withdraw the straws 33, one at a time, through the opening as they are needed.

The carton not only makes an attractive display but also avoids handling of the straws except as they are used by the customers.

The verticalsides or panels 5, 6, I, 8 and the in width and this is necessarily so, otherwise the straws would fall over whenever the carton was partly empty so that they could not be reached through the dispensing opening. In other words, the lateral dimensions of the carton must be small enough in relation to the height, that the straws will stand Vertically or substantially so until the last one is withdrawn. 3

While I have shown my carton as adapted for dispensing soda straws, it is equally useful with many kinds of merchandise such as cigarettes, matches, and other articlesdesired to be used or dispensed one at a time.

Having thus described one form that my invencompleted carton are much greater in height than tion may take, I claim all modifications and equivalents thereof that may come within the following claims.

Iclaim:

A carton having a front wall with a cutaway portion at its upper edge, a rear wall having a top hinged thereto along one edge, the opposite edge of said top having a tuck lying within said front wall, there being apotential dispensing opening defined by a fracturable line partly on said top and partly on said tuck, the part on said tuck conforming with the cut-away portion on said front wall.

2. A carton having front, rear -and side walls,

3.
