Description

United States Patent 3,211,282 CONTAINER FOR DISHES Russell J. Hennessey, St. Paul, Minn, assignor to Waldorf Paper Products Company, St. Paul, Minn., a corpora tion of Minnesota Filed Jan. 9, 1963, Ser. No. 250,323 3 Claims. ((11. 20646) This invention relates to an improvement in containers for dishes and the like and deals particularly with a container which may be used to protect a dish or similar object during transportation and storage.

Many plates such as souvenir plates are specially designed or painted plates and the like are sold as individual units. In such a case, it is essential that a means be provided for packaging the plates so that they will not be broken during shipment. An object of the present invention resides in the provision of a container for a disk-like object such as a plate in which the plates may be displayed, and yet which may serve as an effective protection during shipment.

An object of the present invention resides in the provision of a container of the type in question cut and creased to provide a hollow rectangular post of corrugated board or the like at each corner of a rectangular container. The inner adjoining surfaces of these posts are apertured or notched to accommodate angularly spaced areas of the periphery of the dish or plate. The apertures are so located to hold the dish or plate from vertical movement, as well as to hold the object from material movement in a radial direction. Thus the dish or plate is very effectively contained. In view of the fact that the posts are hollow, the dish or plate may be supported so that virtually the entire surface thereof is visible when the top of the container is open.

An added feature of the present invention resides in the provision of a container of the type described which may be easily and quickly set up to contain the product. In preferred form, the ends of the extensions which are located at opposite ends of each side panel are secured in overlapping relation. By providing a simple form, certain portions of the flap structure of the extensions may be folded upwardly while the side wall panels are flat and on a plane with the bottom panel. One of the flap structures on one of the side walls may be set up and folded to overlie the bottom panel. One side of the dish to be packaged may be inserted through the apertures or slots in this structure. The opposite flap structure may then be folded up to swing the notches or apertures therein into engagement with the plate to complete the arrangement. The end walls and the cover flaps secured thereto may be folded and glued automatically if it is so desired.

These and other objects and novel features of the present invention will be more clearly and fully set forth in the following specification and claims.

In the drawings forming a part of the specification:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of the closed container in readiness for shipment.

FIGURE 2 is a perspective View of the open container, the contents being omitted to show the container construction.

FIGURE 3 is a horizontal sectional view through the container just above the dish or similar object, sho'wing the manner in which the dish is supported.

FIGURE 4 is a vertical sectional view through the container, the contents being illustrated in dotted outline.

FIGURE 5 shows the container in flat form after the extensions on opposite ends of the side walls have been overlapped and secured together.

FIGURE 6 is a diagrammatic view of the blank from which the container is formed.

The container is indicated in general by the letter A, and the container is particularly designed to hold a generally circular or disk-shaped object such as the dish B. As indicated in FIGURES 3 and 4 of the drawings, the structure is such as to hold the marginal edges of the dish in spaced relation to the walls of the container, and also acts to suspend the dish B between the top and bottom panels of the container. The container A includes a bottom panel 10 rigidly connected along parallel fold lines 11 and 12 to end Walls 13 and 14 respectively. In the following description, certain wall panels have been described as end wall panels while the right angularly arranged panels are described as side wall panels. This specific description may be considered somewhat misleading, as where the article contained is round, the bottom panel is substantially square. However, the terminology to simplify the description, and to distinguish between the pairs of walls.

The end walls 13 and 14 are hingedly connected along their upper edges by fold lines 15 and 16 to top or cover panels 17 and 19 respectively. In the particular arrangement illustrated, the panel 19 is substantially the full width and length of the container while the other panel 17 is somewhat narrower. In order to insure the fact that at least portions of the surfaces of the panels may be in proper face contact, the top panel 17 may be provided with an extra score line 20 which will insure that at least the end section 21 of the top panel may fold flat against the upper surface of the panel :19.

Side walls 22 are hinged to the side edges of the bottom panel 10 along parallel fold lines 23. In view of the fact that both side wall structures are identical, the same identifying numbers are used. The ends of the side walls 22 are connected along parallel fold lines 24 and 25 to rectangular end wall flaps 26 and 27. These end wall flaps 26 and 27 are hingedly connected alon'g fold lines 29 and 30 to first partition panels 31 and 32, respectively. The first partition panels 31 and 32 are hingedly connected along fold lines 33 and 34- to second partition panels 35 and 36, respectively. The second partition panels 35 and 36 are hingedly connected along fold lines 37 and 39 to anchoring flaps 4t and 41, respectively. The anchoring flaps 41 are preferably provided with short downwardly projecting lips or tongues 42 designed to extend into slots cut into the side edges of the bottom panel 10 by U-shaped cut lines as illustrated in FIGURE 6.

In preferred form, the flap extensions are folded along the fold line 25 so that the anchoring flap 41 overlies the end wall flap 26 of the opposite extension. The extensions are also folded along the fold lines 33 and the anchoring flaps 40 are adhered in face contact with the anchoring flaps 41. During this operation, the end wall 14 and top panel 19 may also be folded along the fold line 12 if it is desired to decrease the area of the blank during storage.

A slot or aperture 44 extends through the partition flaps 31 and 35, usually extending an equal distance on opposite sides of the fold line 33. A slot or aperture 45 is also provided in the partition flaps 32 and 36, intersecting the fold line 34. The slots 44 and 45 are properly shaped and properly located to support the dish or plate B in properly spaced relation to the top and bottom panels and to suspend the object B out of contact with the outer walls of the container.

In usual practice, the two extensions connected to each side wall 22 may be folded into generally rectangular form while the side walls 22 are on the plane of the bottom panel 10. The wall structure with the assembled flaps may then be hinged upwardly so that two of the corner posts extend upwardly from the bottom panel 10. One side of the object B may then be inserted into the apertures 44 and 45. The opposite flap structure may then be set up in the same manner, and the opposite wall swung upwardly, the opposite edge of the plate being guided into the apertures 44 and 45 therein. The end walls 13 and 14 are then folded upwardly, the top panel 19 folded down, and the opposite top panel 17 folded down over the panel 19, with the end portion 21 adhered in face contact thereto.

In accordance with the patent statutes, I have described the principles of construction and operation of my improvement in Containers for Dishes, and while I have endeavored to set forth the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that changes may be made within the scope of the following claims without departing from the spirit of my invention.
