1 Claim.
This invention relates to article containers and more particularly to improvements in the construction of packages or cartons for bakery and other food products, such as pies, cakes, pastry, and the like. I
An object of the invention is to provide an improved carton for food products in which the food is retained on a tray slidably mounted in the carton in such a manner that the tray can be easily moved out from and into the carton through one end thereof.
Another object .of the invention is to provide an improved package for food products in which the contents are visible from the top and sides of the container.
Another object of the invention is to provide animproved package for food products in which the food is retained on a tray slidably mounted in a carton having interlocking ends so constructed as to preserve the natural appearance, flavor and freshness of the food until consumed.
These objects and other objects and advantages are attained with this invention, as will become apparent from the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective of the package assembled in accordance with the invention;
Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing one end of the outer carton of the package open and the inner tray partly withdrawn from the carton; Fig. 3 is a perspective showing the inner tray wholly outside of the carton, an article of food, such as a cake, being indicated by broken lines in position in which a portion of the cake can be removed;
Fig. 4 is a vertical section taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 5 is a view of the end of the package op-. posite to the end shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3;
Fig.6 is an elevation of the rear end of the tray; 4
Fig. '7' is a plan of the blank from which the carton is formed; and
Fig. 8 is a plan of the blank from which the tray is formed.
Referring to the drawings, the-article c'ontainer comprises a carton H and a tray l2 adapted to fit within the carton and support food products or other articles. Both the carton II and the tray l2 may be formed of any suitable material, such as cardboard, paper or the like.
The carton II is formed from a blank which .in Fig. 6.
is divided by spaced transverse score and cut lines l3, l4, I5 and i6, and spaced longitudinal score lines IT, IS and I9, into a bottom 20, side walls 2| and 22, a top 23, a rear wall composed of portions 24 and 25, and a front wall 26 having an extension 21. Another extension 23 forms a flap by which the side wall 22 is secured to the bottom 20. I
Flaps 29 extend from the side wall 2|, being foldable along the score lines I! and I8. Similar l0 flaps 30 also extend from the side wall 22.
The portion 24 of the rear wall is formed with spaced slits 3| arranged to receive the tabs 32 of the portion 25.
The top 23 is formed with slits 33 arranged to 15 receive oppositely projecting tabs 34 formed in a? strap .35 formed in the portion 21 of the front wall 26.
An opening 36 is formed in the adjacent portions of the side wall 2| and the top 23, and an- 20 other opening 31 is formed in the adjacent portions of the side wall 22 and the top 23.
The openings 36 and 31 provide windows which are located in both the top and the sides of the container, said windows being closed by means of suitable transparent material 38, such as Cellophane or the like, which transparent material in the form of,sheets is affixed to the inner surface of the blank as shown in Fig. 7.
As shown in Fig. 8, the tray I2 is formed from a blank which is divided by transverse score lines 4| and 42 and longitudinal score and cut lines 43 and 44, into a bottom 45, side walls 46 and 41, a front wall-43, and a rear wall 49.
Extending from the side wall 46 is a strap 50 having a V-shaped notch 5| formed in a longitudinal edge thereof.
Extending from the side wall 41 is a strap having a V-shaped notch 53 formed therein.
The side walls 46 and 41, and the rear wall 49 of the tray l2 are retained in substantially a vertical position (see Fig. 3) by the straps 50 and 52, which are interlocked together adjacent their extremities by interfitting. the notches 5| and 53 with each other, in the manner shown An arcuate notch 54 is formed in the outer edge of the front wall 48 of the tray I2, so as to permit a finger of a person to engage said front wall and swing thesame upwardly and downwardly.
The tray I2 is adapted to be set up or assembled in the form shown inFig. 3, when it is desired to place a food product, such as a cake, a pie, or, the like in the container I I. The article of food can be readily slid onto the bottom 45 of the tray over the lowered front wall 48, to the position indicated by broken lines.
- The carton II is folded first to form an open ended container, as shown in Fig. 3. The side wall extension 26 is fastened to the side wall 22 by suitable adhesive. The rear flaps 29 and 30 are then folded inwardly and the rear wall portions 24 and 25 secured, with the tabs 22 inserted in the slits 3|, as shown in- Fig. 5.-
In order that the tray I2 may be inserted in the carton I I, the front portions of the carton are left detached, as shown irrF'igs. 2 and 3.
After the food has been placed on the tray I2, the tray is pushed inwardly of the carton II to the position illustrated in Fig. 2, the front wall 46 being swung upwardly at the completion of the inward movement of the tray.
In order to close the carton II the flaps 26 and 36 are first moved inwardly into contact with the front wall 46 of the tray I2. Next the front wall 26 is swung upwardly to a substantially vertical position, and the extension 21 thereof inserted in the space between the front edge of the top 23 and the upper edges of the tabs 29 and 30, and the front 46 of the tray, as shown in Fig. 4.
When the extension 21 is being moved into position, the strap 35 and its tabs 34 are bent outwardly so that said strap and tabs are free.
Finally the strap 36 is bent downwardly onto the top 23 and the tabs 24 inserted in the slits 33, thereby locking the front wall 26 in position.
Due to the manner of constructing the device, since all walls are closed, the food will retain a freshness.
When, for instance, if the food is a cake, it is desired to remove aportion of the cake from the loaf within the container, the front wall 26 is opened and the tray I2 slid outwardly to the position shown in Fig, 3. Portions of the cake can be cut from the loaf of cake while'the cake remains on the tray I2. After which the tray can be replaced in the carton I I and the latter closed in the manner hereinbefore described.
It is to be understood that the form of the invention herein shown and described is merely illustrative of a preferred embodiment and that the same may assume various other shapes and sizes without'departing from the spirit of the invention. and the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:
An article container of the type described comprising an end opening box having a releasable closure for the open end of said box, a tray hav ing connected side and rear walls and a front wall hinged to the bottom of said tray and disconnected from said side walls, said front wall of the tray having a height equal substantially to the height of said-box, said releasable closure having a tuck flap which is held between the top wall of the box and the upperedge of the front wall of said tray.
