Description

Oct. 14, 1941. R. RALPH ETAL CONFECTIONERY DISPLAY PACKAGE Filed Feb. 3, 1958 Patented Oct. 14, 1941 CONFECTIONERY DISPLAY PACKAGE Reginald Ralph, East York, Ontario, and Harris Stanley Hall, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Application February 3, 1938, Serial No. 188,404 In Canada October 19, 1937 1 Claim. (Cl. 20672) The invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in confectionery display packages, as described in the present specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing that forms part of the same.

The invention consists essentially in the novel arrangement whereby a tray member is cut and creased to form lugs or tabs which secure the confectionery supported by the tray at a depth only sufficient to rigidly retain same in place, leaving the greater portion exposed to the view.

The objects of the invention are to facilitate the packing of confectionery, it being feasible, with this idea, for a number of packers to fill a plurality of trays at the same time, any number of which may later be placed in a box, to vastly improve the appearance of confectionery packages and at the same time reduce the cost, eliminating any necessity for individual paper cups as is presently the practice and to more securely retain the confectionery pieces in their proper place in the box. In other words our invention attains the three-fold objects of rapid packing, security and display.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a perspective view of our invention, showing a box partially broken away to disclose the tray and a preferred form of lug arrangement, the first section showing the cutting and creasing, the next section showing the tabs as they would appear bent in to receive the chocolates or other confectionery pieces, which are shown in place in the following two sections of this figure.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the tubular tray broken away, disclosing a slightly modified arrangement for securing the tabs which might be used with this tubular tray design.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure.

Referring to the drawing, I is a box having a tray 2 introduced therein. This tray is shown as of tubular formation. 3 are tabs cut in the tray 2 at 4 and creased along the lines 5 to bend easily. These tabs are also creased at 6 so that the ends will flatten out on contacting the lower platform 1 of the tubular tray 2 (Figure 1). In the modification disclosed in Figure 2 plain tabs 8 are provided on the upper platform of a tubular tray 9, so cut and spaced as to register with the slots If! in the lower platform H of the tubular tray 9. Thus, in both Figures 1 and 2 the confectionery pieces are effectually protected against displacement or sliding in any direction and they cannot therefore become jumbled underneath the top portion of the tubular tray, no matter how widely spaced apart, being fixedly retained in their allotted positions as indicated, at the same time allowance is made so that the depth of the tubular tray can be quite shallow so that the greater portion of the confectionery pieces may be exposed, only sumcient of the base portions thereof being embedded as will effectually secure same. This feature is quite important to the present invention.

A great advantage found with this type of package is that, it being possible to pack these trays before they go into the box, much time is saved by having the various layers packed simultaneously by different operators and later assembled into the required boxes. It is obvious that packing into the trays illustrated is accomplished simply by forcing the confectionery pieces gently down onto the cut and creased tabs and the looking or securing of the side walls formed by these depressed tabs takes place automatically. As shown in Figure 1 of the drawing the chocolate or confectionery piece seats upon the bent end of the tab 3 which was creased at 6, the weight of the piece of confectionery itself then serving to hold the tabs rigidly in place. This bending of the tab at 6 likewise permits the provision of a more shallow tray, leaving the greater portion of the confectionery piece exposed to view and allowing greater purchase for the finger grip when lifting it from the package.

The modified form of the idea disclosed in Figure 2 also allows for a shallow tubular tray affording just enough space for the base of the confectionery piece to be securely embedded and leaving the greater portion thereof exposed and accessible.

What we claim as our invention is:

In a confectionery display package, a box, a tubular tray having upper and lower platforms for insertion in said box in spaced relation from the bottom thereof, said upper platform having spaced sets of a pair of intersecting cuts forming similar triangular shaped tabs, the base of said tabs being integral with said upper platform and the length of said tabs being greater than the distance from said upper platform to the lower platform of said tray, the tabs of each set, when in operating position, extending downwardly from said upper platform and contacting the lower platform of the tray and having an end portion thereof extending inwardly to form a pocket for an article, said article resting on and contacting said inwardly extending portions and retaining the tabs in upright position.
