CHESTER GREENWOOD, OF FARMINGTON, MAINE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 264,148, dated September 12, 1882,
Application filed June 2, 1 882. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, OHEsTEE GREENWOOD, of Farmington, in the county of Franklin, State of Maine, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Advertising Match- Boxes,'of which the following is adescription sufficiently full, clear, and exact to enable any person skilled in the art or science to which said invention appertains to make and use the same, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is an isometrical perspective view, and Fig. 2 a side elevation.
Like letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures of the drawlugs.
My invention relates to that class of matchboxes which are designed not only for containing matches in the usual manner, but for advertising purposes; and it consistsin a novel construction and arrangement of the parts, as hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed,
- by which a more efiective device of this charactor is produced than is now in ordinary use.
In the drawings, A represents the body of the box, B the back, and O the matches. The back is elongated or extended downward below the body, as seen at D, and its sides provided with the inwardly-curved lips or flanges a a for receiving and holdingthe advertisingcards G E. These cards should be of a width corresponding with the back of the box, and are inserted under and held in position by the flanges, the cards for the back D being inserted at the bottom of the same and those for the hack B from the top. The body A is also provided with like flanges at its back and front corners, so as to receive and hold the cards H J, the frictional surface for striking or lighting the matches 0 being disposed on the bottom at m.
A series of tablets, d 01, also provided with side flanges, a a, for receiving and holding the advertising-cards z, are hinged or pivoted at a: to the back D in such a manner that they may be closedor shut in behind the back to hide the cards they contain whenever desired, as best seen in Fig. 1. V
It will be obvious that the cards may be changed as frequently as required, and that instead of the flanges a a anyother convenient means for holding them in proper position on the box may be employed, if preferred, without departing from the spirit of my invention.
Having thus described my improvement, what I claim is--' An advertising match-box consisting of an elongated back, B, having in\vnrdIy-cnrved lips a on its face side for receiving and holding advertising-cards, a body, A, which serves as a receptacle for the matches, and a series of tablets pivoted to the rear side of said back, provided with flanges a to receive and hold advertising-cards, and adapted to swing outward into a horizontal position for exhibiting the cards, and upward behind the back for concealing the same, substantially as described.
