(01. 206-57) This invention relates to packets, and more 9 Claims.

particularly to an improved form of handkerchief packet containing a plurality of tissue sheets and being adapted to be carried in a relatively flat enclosure such as aside pocket of a man's dress coat, or the like.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a packet of the type described which comprises in combination a container and plurality of tissue sheets disposed in the container in a novel and improved manner whereby the tissue sheets may be successively removed from the.

container with improved facility without removing the container from the carrying pocket or the like and through use of only one hand of the user and in such manner as to simulate the simple withdrawing of a free handkerchief from the carrying pocket. Another object of the invention is to provide a packet of the character described which is of improved form so as to be adapted to conform to the shape of a man's dress coat pocket in an improved manner. Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear from the specification herein.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective of a handkerchief packet of the invention;

Fig. 2 is a similar perspective of another. form of the invention;

Figs. 3, 4 and 5 are typical vertical sections through a group of tissue sheets disposed in various forms of assembly arrangements within thel sheet container element of the invention; an

Fig. 6 is a' fragmentary diagrammatic illustration of an operation in connection with the use of the invention.

As illustrated in Fig. 1, the packet of the invention comprises essentially a relatively thin rectangular box-like container I0 formed of folded cardboard, or the like, and comprising a structure having generally front and rear walls l2 and M, respectively; end walls I6 and I8; and a bottom .closure wall 20. The sheet material from which the container I0 is formed may be initially cut out by a single blanking operation and then folded into the form illustrated in the In connection with the blanking proces the end wall portion I6 may be provided with an integral laterally extending flap 22 which is adapted to a lap under the adjacent side edge portion of the front wall l2 when the latter is folded into assembly position. An application of adhesive between the flap 22 and the front. walll2 will then provide the necessary connection therebetween to maintainthefolded' structure in assembled relation. Similarly; the

bottom wall 20 may be provided with an extending flap portion adapted to coact with a. main wall portion of the; structure for maintaining the wall 20 in bottom closing positionupon the container l0. 7 1 front face I2 is re- The upper edge of the cessed as at 24 along a line inclined relative to v the major marginal edges of the structure, and is provided therealong with an inturned flap 26 which extends into the interior of the container for a purpose that will hereinafter be explained. As illustrated in Figs. 3, 4 and 5, the tissue'sheets 30 of the invention areinstalled within thecontainer in accordion pleated or 8 folded manner. 30 are first arranged in superposed relation-to form a pack and then the packis folded as at' 32 and 34.v Thefolding is so performed'in each case as to dispose the lower end 36 of the sheet pack at about the level of the fold 32, but the ill by means of a staple 40; and the edges of the sheets 30 of the upper end 38 of the sheet pack are disposed within the confines of the upper portion of the container body. As illustrated in Fig. 1, a top closing flap 28 may be provided if desired as an integral extending portion of the back wall H of the container for folding forwardly and downwardly and insertion between the upper end of the sheet pack and the front face I2 of the container to provide a folding cover for the open end of the container.

Fig. 2 illustrates another form of the sheet pack container wherein the container structure is formed by simply folding a generally rectangular piece of cardboard or the like at two parallel lines 52 and 54 and joining the converging ends of the blank by arranging them in lapped relation and cementing or stapling or otherwise connecting the portions together.

The lower end of the container maybe closed by fastening the lower edges of the front and' rear wall portions together in contiguous rela- I tion by means of staples 58, or any other suitable I means. Thus, the container 50 comprises substantially a pair of opposed front and rear wall In assembling the packet the tissue sheets members arranged in slightly spaced relation and joined at their sideedge portions by means of relatively sharp folds in the container sheet material. ;As illustrated, the container front and rear .walls are preferably concentrically trated in Fig. 5, all of the sheets may be cut to Y equal length so as to make the upper ends therecurvecl in horizontal section so as to give the 7 container a slightly arcuate sectional form; the degree of curvature of the walls being'such that the containeris adapted to be placed within the side pocket ofja man's dress coat, or the like; and to conform substantially to the normal curvature of the pocket without bulging effects such as would destroy the smooth outer appearance of the pocket and coat'line.

As in the case of'Fig. 1, the front was of the container 50 f Fig. 2 is recessed as at 60 and provided with an inturned flap 82 disposed above the upper fold of the sheet pack 'therein.- A temporary closure in the form of a readily removable cap is provided as a sanitary seal of coextensive, as may be preferred.

Particular attention is called to the form of the'recess in the container front wall of Fig. 1 wherein the-recess is formed of increasing depth toward the side 'edge of the container diametrically opposed tothe location of the staple 40, By

reason of this arrangement the tension upon each sheet element during withdrawal operations is di- "i rected diagonally of the sheet as illustrated in Fig. 6. Thus, when the stress is transmitted to the'connection between the staple Ill and the lower end of the sheet, the sheet tends to tear around the staple 40 in such manner as to leave a minimum amount of the sheet material in enforthe contents of the container until such time as theyare to be used whereupon the cap!!! will be removed (from the container.

upper end and being adaptedto fit upon the upper end of'the containert'nll. It-may be con-- The cap HI is in the form of a sleeve having a closedveniently formed of Cellophane, paper, or any I nature. 1 i h Figs. 3, 4am .5 illustrate three possible forms other 'suitable' -sheet material of inexpensive of arrangementsof the sheet elements 30 in their all of equal length andalternate sheets 30 are arranged in overlapping relation at their opposite ends so that at the end portions 36 and 38 every other-sheet extends beyond the sheets therebe-" tween. The staple llliis then driven through only folded sheet pack mm, In Fig. 3 the sheets are" the extending sheeten'd portions at the bottom of the pack and into connected. relation with the front wall of the container upon =final assembly of the unit; Hence every other-one of the sheet elements .of the pack extends above the sheetele-" ment next adjacent thereto at the top endoof the container and the user is enabled to readily grasp onesheet at a time between his fingers,commencing with the sheet presented toward the 7 front face of the container; By simply pulling upon the upper end of each sheet it will first be pulled'out of the lower fold '32 and then as it assumes unfolded condition the stress of the pull will be-transmitted'to' the {staple l0 and the sheet will tearaway therefrom and be free to be completely withdrawn from the container without disturbing the other sheets of the pack. When-the sheet elements of the pack are formed of certain kinds of material, such as crepe paper or the like, I have found that themethod of sheet mounting illustrated'in Fig. 3 is very satisfacto y because the friction between adjacent nested sheet elements in the neighborhood of the staple l0 effectively retains all of the sheet elements in proper position during theprocess of removal of successive sheets from the pack. I

,In the case of use of other kinds of tissue mate- .rial, however, it may be found. desirable toin'dividually fix all of the sheet elements'to the con-' gagement with the staple after the sheet is severed therefrom.

It will be apparentthat as the tissue sheets are drawn from the casing ill (Fig 1) or .(Fig. 2) the top line of fold will abut the lower face of the inturned flap 26 of Fig. 1, or of the flap 62 of Fig, 2, thus preventing disturbance of the pack as a unit from its nested position in the container casing but without interfering with" withdrawal of the sheet elements 30 individually therefrom.

If desired, the top closure flap 28 of Fig. 1 may I be severed from. the rear wall of the container just prior to use of' the sheets, and the packet j theninserted in the pocket of the user with the open end of the-packet facing upwardly.

natural contour'thereof in an improved manner,

v "and the sheet pack is so arranged that individual sheet elements thereof may be removed therefrom in animproved manner and with utmost I convenience and facility and through use of only tainer wall by means of the staple 40, and-in such case the'sheet pack will be arranged as illustrated in Figs. 4' and 5 wherein thelower edges of all of the sheet elements 30 are coextensive and clamped to the container wall by means of the staple. In Fig.4 the upperends of the sheets 30 are arranged in alternate overlapping relation.

' one hand of theuser and without removing the container from'the carrying pocket and in such manner as to simulate the simple withdrawing of a free handkerchief from the pocket.

It will be understood that the sheets 30 of the packet of the invention may be individually either mangle or longitudinally folded form so that when they are withdrawn from the packet casing they may provide handkerchiefs or the like of any desired width. Thus, the dimensions of the packet casing may be kept down to convenient size for pocket carrying use, and yet the handkerchiefs contained therein may be provided of ample size for convenient use when unfolded after being withdrawnfrom the casing.

Although only a limited number of forms of the invention have been shown and'described in detail, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the invention is not so limited but that I various changes" maybe made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope'of the appended claims.
