Patented Nov. 21, 1950 comma AND nrsrmr mssnr John p. cm, Downers Grove, in, assignor to Morris Paper Mills, Chicago, 111., a corporation of Illinois Application March I, 1945, Serial No. 581,380

8 Claims. (Cl. 229-23) The present invention relates to improvements in cartons and in particular to display inserts therefor.

. which is scored or creased to provide panelsto be I n is a principal object of the invention to provide an article holding display insert having a bottom panel and a cover panel, the cover panel when closed being held in spaced position with respect to the bottom panel by spacer means which include a spacer panel associated with the bottom panel and the cover panel along one side thereof, and a spacer member disposed opposite the spacer panel to support a free end of the cover panel.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a novel type of carton having spaced apart side and end walls wherein outer side and end wall sections are upwardh' and inwardly inclined with top spacer sections which are downwardly and inwardly sloped, thereby to enhance the display characteristics of such a carton.

More specifically, it is an object of the present invention to provide a display carton having spaced apart side walls with upwardly and in-- wardly inclined side wall sections and downwardly and inwardly sloped top side wall spacer sections, the sections being permanently secured in position so as to provide a collapsible carton which can be shipped for use in such a condition, and having spaced apart end walls with similarly inclined and sloped corresponding sections which can be unfolded for shipping purposes and which can be temporarily erected in position when the carton is set up for use.

Other objects of the invention will in part be obvious and will in part appear hereinafter.

The invention accordingly comprises an article of manufacture possessing the features, properties, and the relation of elements which will be exemplified in the article hereinafter described and the scope of the application of which will be indicated in the claims.

For a fuller understanding of the nature and objects of the invention reference should be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. l is a plan view of a preferred form of carton blank scored or creased to provide panels to be folded, secured and erected into a novel type of carton;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the blank of Fig. 1 with two of the side walls and one end wall in erected position, and the remaining end wall in flattened unfolded position;

Fig. 3 is a preferred form of insert blank folded, secured and erected into an article holding insert for a carton;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a completely ,constructed insert with the cover partly raised;

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary portion of the cover shown in Fig. 1 illustrating the position of a removable cover lifting and closing tab;

Fig. 6 is a transverse sectional view illustrating the insert of Fig. 4 disposed within a carton of the type shown'in Fig. 2; and

Fig. '7 is a similar view taken" at right angles to a the view shown in Fig. 6.

Referring more particularly to Fig. 1 of the drawings there is shown a singlejdie cut and scored blank having a bottom-panel I0 and oppositely disposed side wall extensions indicated generally at II, II. Each side wall extension II comprises conjoined panel sections which include an outer side wall panel section I2, a top spacer wall panel section I3, an inner side wall panel section I4 and a bottom spacer side wall panel section,

or glue flap, I5. These panels are defined by score lines I6, I'I, I8 and I9.

At each opposite remaining end of the bottom panel III, end wall extensions indicated generally at 20, 20, are provided. Each end wall extension comprises conjoined panel sections which include an outer end wall panel section 2I, an end wall top spacer section panel 22, an inner end wall panel section 23, and an end wall spacer panel 24. These panels are defined by score or crease'lines 25, 26, 21 and 28.

Openings 29 in panels I4 are adapted to receiv extending members 30 of panels 23 to hold the spaced apart end walls in locked position when the carton is set up for use. This locking arrangement is conventional and needs no further elaboration.

At each corner of the panel II) the material indicated generally at B constitutes a bellows type fold made up of sections a, b and 0 provided by score lines. I

Adjacent each bellows fold, and comprising extensions of panels I3 and I4, are spacer sections indicated generally at S. These sections are made up of small panels a: and 1/, each being separated by a score line which is an extension of the score line I8. This extended score line functions as a hinge for each section a: which is severed from the section c of the bellows fold and from the top spacer section I3.

In completing such an article for shipment the side wall extensions II are folded along the score lines I6, l1, l8 and I9. Each panel It,

previously been provided with .glueonitsundersidais'securedtothe edge of the bottom panel It.

The spaced apart side walls thus constitute panel sections it which are upwardly and inwardly inclined. panel sections it which are downwardly and inwardly sloped, and inner wall sections it which are substantially vertical. -It will also be observed that each panel ll, because it is securedtothe bottom panel It, will'tend to hold the side wall sections ll, ll and id in erect broadledgeto thecover. Furthermore, thespacermea'nsmayincludethespaoerpanels at the remaining opposite sides of the bottom panel ti, that is, the sections indicated generally at it, II which additionally lend support to theremainingi'reeendsofthecoverpanel.

It is desirable that the cover have some convenient means whereby it can be raised and lowposition. However, these side wall sections can be collapsed to fiat position for shippin purposes. This can be accomplished because of the fact that the width of each panel section II, plus the width of each panel section ll, equals the width of each panel section II plus the width of each panel section II.

Referring now to Fig. 8, there is illustrated a single blank of scored or creased material illustrated as being generall rectangular in. configuration. This'blank has a glossy finish on one side. PreferabLv, this glossy finish is PTO-m videdbylaminatingtotheblankasmoothly finished sheet of suitable paper material. This blank has a bottom panel li. From one side of the bottom panel there extends a spacer panel 32, a cover member as connected thereto, with ,a cover member extension 34 connected to the cover member 33, all of which are defined by score lines II, It and 31. A slot 38 can be out along the score line 31 between the cover memextension consists of panels 40, ll and BI. These panels are defined by score lines 52, It and It.

A marginal portion of the underside of each panel It and II, II preferably is provided with a suitable adhesive. It will be observed that these panels are beveled-to impart a more finished appearance. The glue fiap portions or panels '43, ii are then folded along crease linu It and 48 respectively marginally to glue them to the bottom of the panel ll. Because of the"beveled portions there obviously will be no overlapping at the corners of these panels.

The cover member isformed by folding the extension 34 along the score line I! so that it overlies the panel section 33. Preferably, these panels are secured to each other by means of glue with which the under sides of the blank have previously been provided. These blanks thus folded and properly secured provide a novel type of insert for display or other type boxes or containers. They can be shipped to the consumer in collapsed position. when erected for ered into position. Any suitable tab member can be in any convenient location for the purpose. However, referring now to the slot It between the panels II and 84, it will be seen that a novel type of insert removably can be mounted therein, such as that indicated at ii in dotted line position in the fragmentary view illustrating the same in Pig. 5. Preferably, this consists ofa piece of plastic of hook-like shape a right angular upstanding portion as "as red, blue, green, or the like which will impart The tab it can be of suitable color, such further attractiveness to the general display qualities of the insert as well as the carton in which it is placed.v when the two panels 83 and it are folded and secured together, this tab can readily be hooked into and'out of position.

Such an'arrangement '0! insert with the type of container illustrated, or any other suitable container, has many advantages. For example, it is very easy to open for consumer inspection and has the additional advantage of being useful for immediate display purposes, as well as being re-useable. 'It is also attractive in appearance, the contentsreadily are accessible, and

the cover enhances the general appearance of the combination. It is significant that this type of insert when arranged in position in ordinary types of boxes, that is, those that do nothave spaced apart walls, imparts thereto a frame type useasinFlg.4suchaninsertcanbeusedwith' appearance.

The insert cover, comprising members it and it, is desirably spaced apart from the box bottom and well supported by ledges, at least one of which constitutes spaced apart walls. However, the walls need not be spaced apart but may he of double or even single thickness where this isdesirable. When fitted into a conventional as well as a spaced apart wall container the cover can be made suitably to contact the sides of the container to be held in frictional engagement therewith. Of course, the depth of the insert' can be as required preferably according to the depth of the container to'whieh it is applied. Such a combination of box and box closure insert is particularly desirable for display Purposes in connection with textiles, cosmetics, soaps, notions, wearing apparel, accessories, jewelry, and the like.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: I 1. An article holding carton insert fabricated from a single blank and comprising a bottom panel, a cover panel in hinged relation to said bottom panel and a plurality of wall members including an opposed pair of wall members, said wall members serving to hold said cover panel in spaced relation with respect to said bottom panel in the closed position of the former, said cover panel being hinged to one. of said wall members, others thereof each including a pair of inner and outer upstanding panels which are integrally connected to one another and to said bottom panel, and an extension on said outer panel which underlies and is secured to the said bottom panel, said opposed pair of wall members having the inner and outer upstanding cover panel being hinged to one of said wall memrs, others thereof each including inner and outer upstanding panels which are integrally connected to one another and to said bottom panel, and an extension on each of said outer panels which underlies and is secured to the bottom panel, said insert being outwardly collapsible to an inoperative condition, and a carton receiving said insert in confining engagement with the wall members of the latter to hold the e in upstanding position.

0. The carton-insert combination of claim 2, in which the integral connection of the inner and outer upstanding panels of a wall member opposite the cover-hinging member is by means 6 of an intermediate panel substantially paralleling said bottom panel, and in which said cover panel is proportioned to have face-to-iace supporting engagement with said intermediate panel within the confines 01 said carton.
