Cl. 206-44.11 14 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE The present invention is directed to a package for dinnerware which will act as a shipping, storage and display package.

The present invention relates to an improved package and more particularly to an improved package for shipping, storing and displaying dinnerware sets.

Heretofore, dinnerware, and especially china or earthen dinnerware, has been packaged in a carton which is stuffed with shredded paper, wood, etc. in order to prevent the dinnerware from being disturbed and broken during shipping and handling. However, such cartons are bulky, take up a great deal of rOOm for shipping and storing purposes and are awkward to handle. Furthermore, extra plates are often supplied to retailers as samples for display purposes.

The present invention avoids these drawbacks and has for one of its objects the provision of an improved package which uses a minimum of packing material.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of an improved package in which a set of dishes can be packed with minimum danger of breakage or damage.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of an improved package which can be used as a display package as well as a shipping carton and a storage carton.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a package which is not bulky and which may be easily carried by the purchaser.

Other and further objects of the invention will be obvious upon an understanding of the illustrative embodiment about to be described, or will be indicated in the appended claims, and various advantages not referred to herein will occur to one skilled in the art upon employment of the invention in practice.

A preferred embodiment of the invention has been chosen for purposes of illustration and description and is shown in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of the specification wherein:

FIG. 13 is a perspective view showing the second step of attaching the handle to the package; and

FIG. 14 is a perspective view showing the final step of attaching the handle to the package.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the package 1 of the present invention comprises an outer carton 2 adapted to receive a pair of spaced cup-retaining assemblies 3 adapted to hold cups B and similar articles. Interposed between said cup-retaining assemblies 3 is a centrally mounted large plate-retaining assembly 4 adapted to hold large plate A such as dinner plates and the like. On top of the large plate-retaining assembly 4 is mounted a small plate-retaining assembly 9 adapted to hold small plates such as saucers and the like, collectively designated C.

The outer carton 2 preferably has open sides and is covered with an outer casing 5 which fits tightly over the outer carton 2 to hold the contents of the outer carton in place. The outer casing 5 may be clear or may be provided with descriptive material thereon. In the particular embodiment shown in the drawing, a large plate A is mounted tightly between the outer carton 2 and the outer casing 5 in order to permit the pattern of the dinnerware set to be displayed. However, it will be understood that a small plate can also be used, or, if desired, the plate may be eliminated altogether. A handle 40 is also provided to permit the package 1 to be carried.

The ou er carton 2 comprises an upper wall 6. a lower wall 7, a pair of end walls 8 and preferably has its sides open. The outer carton 2 may be formed from a single sheet of board material, which is folded along predetermined fold lines to form the top, bottom and end walls 6, 7 and 8, respectively.

Each cup-retaining assembly 3 is formed from a blank 10, shown in FIG. 10, having openings 11 and 11a therein adapted to receive bowl and handle of each cup B. If the cup B does not have handles, the opening 1162 may be eliminated. The blank 10 is folded along predetermined fold lines to form top wall 12 (with the openings 11 and 11a therein), bottom wall 13 and side walls 14. Each cup-retaining assembly preferably has open ends, as shown, however, the ends may be closed, if desired. In addition, although two openings 11 are shown in the drawing, additional openings may be provided if the package is to receive more than four cups B or similar articles.

The large plate holding assembly 4 is formed from a blank 20, shown in FIG. 8, having a central opening 21. The blank 20 is folded along predetermined fold lines to form a top wall 23 comprising side panels 26, a bot- 3 tom wall 24 and end walls 25. Flaps 22 extend from the side panels 26 and are adapted to be folded downwardly to a position adjacent the side panels 26 in order to tightly hold a plurality of large plates C in place. The sides of the large plate-retaining assembly 4 are preferably open.

Located above the plate holding assembly 4 and within the opening 21 is the small plate-retaining assembly 9 which is formed from a blank 30 shown in FIG. 9. The blank 30 comprises a plurality of side wals 31 having flaps 32 extending from the upper end and tongues 33 extending from the lower end. The blank 30 is folded along predetermined fold lines to form an enclosure for small plates such as saucers, salad plates, etc. In order to hold the small plates in place the tongues 33 are being folded beneath the small plates C and rest on the large plates A. The flaps 32 are bent outwardly so that they abut the underside of the upper wall 6 of the outer carton 2. If desired, openings 34 may be provided on side walls 31 for viewing purposes.

Mounted on top wall 6 of the outer carton 2 is the dinner plate A and the outer casing 5, preferably of a transparent polyethylene material, is forced over the outer carton 2 as shown in FIG. 11. The open end 50 thereof is closed to complete the package. The outer casing will close the open sides of the various retaining assemblies. It will hold the outer carton 2 and its contents tightly in place so that there is no shifting of the contents during handling and no danger of damage.

In order to form the handle 40, a hollow guide 41 is inserted through the outer casing 5 adjacent one edge of the package and a cord 42, or similar item, is insert d therein. The guide 41 is then removed and the cord 42 is knotted at 44 to form the handle 40.

To assemble the package of the present invention the blank 2 is first folded to form the outer carton 2 as shown in FIG. 5. The blanks are then folded along the fold lines and cups B are mounted within the cupreceiving openings 11. The cup-retaining assemblies 3 together with the cups B mounted therein are inserted within the outer carton adjacent the two end walls thereof. The height of each assembly 3 together with cups B is substantially equal to the inner height of the out r carton so that a tight fit results.

The large plate holding assembly 4 is then formed by folding the blank 20 along fold lines. The large plates A are then inserted therewithin as shown in FIG. 7 and are held in place by the pressure of the flaps 23 which are folded against underside of panels 26. The large plat I retaining assembly is located between the cup-retaining assemblies 3 in abutting engagement therewith.

The small plate-retaining assembly 9 is then formed by bending the blank 30 along its fold lines as shown in FIG. 7. Small plates are then mounted within the ass mbly. The tongues 33 are folded beneath the lowermost small plate and the entire assembly is then mounted within the opening 21 in the dinner plate assembly 4. The tongues 33 will prevent the small plates from touching the large plates. The combined height of the large and small plate-retaining assemblies 4 and 9 is substantially equal to the distance between the upper and lower walls of the outer carton to form a tight fit. The flaps 32 aid in preventing shifting of the small plate-retaining assembly.

A display plate, which may be a large plate A, is mounted on the outside of the outer carton 2 with the pattern facing outwardly so that it can be viewed by a potential buyer. The polyethylene outer casing 5 is then tightly forced over both the carton 2 and the display plate A. The open end is sealed to complete the package. The handle 40 is then formed as outlined above.

With this structure, a self-contained package is formed which can be shipped and handled in bulk without the necessity of expensive packaging material to prevent breakage of the items and which will be compact to reduce shipping and handling costs. The package can be easily used as both a shipping and display package. The package further permits the purchaser to hand carry the package without the necessity of bulky cartons and also perm-its the potential purchaser to see the pattern thereby avoiding the necessity of displaying individual sets of dinnerware.

As various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts herein without department from the spirit and scope of the invention and without sacrificing any of its advantages, it is to be understood that all matter herein is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
