Application November 22, 1935, Serial No. 51,049 (01. 229-55) edge, and the sides of which are substantially the ‘ This invention relates to improvements in con legs of an isoceles triangle. The sides 9 and Ill of the blank I are in the form of radially ex tending edges, on one edge 9 of which there is formed integral ear 2 and ?ap 3, the ear and flap 5 being separated from one another along the line of cut 4, and are displaceable with respect to tainers, being directed to paper cups of the nest ing type. ‘ Broadly, it is an object of this invention to pro 5 vide a handle in conjunction with a‘paper cup, which is formed so as to nest with the cup to per mit packing and vending of the same in a mini mum of space. radial edge 9 along the scoring line 5. Adjacent to and parallel to inner arcuate edge ‘I there is formed scoring line H, to provide for annular 10 wall l2. Adjacent and parallel to outer arcuate edge 6 there are formed parallel spaced scoring lines 13 and i4, de?ning annular wall forma tions l5 and I6. . Another object of this invention is to provide 10 a paper cup formed of a blank, to provide in tegral base and handle formations, the base and handle being so formed as to permit nesting of the cup. . ‘ Still further it is an object of this invention 15 to provide a base formation for a. paper cup or the like, incorporating a tongued base structure integral with the remainder of the cup and a re . Referring to Figures 2 and 3, blank I, as cut 15 and scored according to the disclosure of Figure 1, is bent about a vertical central axis to form the walls‘ of a hollow truncated cone, the radial inforcing member associated with the, tongued edge 9 being lapped over radial edge l0 all along their respective lengths and glued thereto as at 0 II: the annular formation i2 formed by bending inner arcuate edge of the blank along scoring line i I, is disposed upwardly and inwardly of the peripheral surface of the truncated cone, ad jacent the main wall of the blank and the radial-' 25 ly extending tongues 8 are disposed inwardly along scoring line 1 towards the vertical axis, the formation to provide a firm base support. Speci?cally, it is an object of this invention to provide a paper cup formation incorporating integral handleand base portions, the handle be ing cut out from the blank adjacent one of the radial overlapping edges thereof, and the base 25 being formed of a series of tongues, the sides of which are the legs of isoceles triangles which, when disposed in radial formation are contigu ous to one another to provide a disk formation, edges of the respective tongues being contiguous there being associated with said disk formation a to form a circular base support i8 (see Figures ' 3 and 4) ; the walls l5 and ii are bent outwardly 30‘ over along scoring lines i3 and I4 respectively, to '30 reinforcing element disposed within the cup and serving not only to provide a rigid base support, but also aleak-proof joint. ‘form downwardly and upwardly extending ?anges respectively from the outer edge of the truncated , These and other advantages, capabilities, and features of the invention/ will appear from the 35 subjoined detailed description of one speci?c cone to form‘a bead for the top of the container. As shown in Figure 3, upon formation of the 35 segmental base support IS, an annular channel 2| is formed between wall ii of the support and embodiment thereof ‘illustrated in the accom panying drawing-in which ' ~ Figure 1 is a plan view of the blank from which the paper cup is formed. 40 Figure 2 is a perspective view of the blank in the process of shaping. Figure 3 is a perspective view, partly in vsec tion, showing the base formation of a cup. Figure 4 is a perspective view showing spe 45 ci?caily an element of the’base. Figure 5 is a perspective view, partly in sec tion, of the paper cup as assembled. Figure 6 is a plan view looking upwardly, of the base of the cup as assembled. 50 , Referring to the‘ reference characters in the drawing, numeral I represents a blank die-cut to provide an outer arcuate edge 6, and scored to provide an inner arcuate edge ‘I, from which edge extends a‘ series of die-cut tongues 8. the bases 55 of which ‘form part of the inner arcuate scored . the wall of the cup. There is disposed within the cup above support I9 disk I! having depending annular wall 20, which latter wall rests within ‘40 channel 2 l. The surfaces of support i8 and disk iii are preferably glued so that when the two are pressed, a solid base formation (see the bottom of Figure 5), is provided, not only to pre sent a ?rm base for the cup, but also to make the 45 same leak-proof. As shown in Figure 5, when the edges 9 and 1 ID of the blank are telescoped to form the over- ' lapping sealing ?ange ‘I1, ear 2 and ?ap 3 re main free of the completed structure, extend- 5()_ ing therefrom along scoring line 5; ?ap 3 is thereafter separated from ear 2 along out line I_ and, after gluing, disposed against the outer wall of the completed container. The ear 2 as thus presented, extends outwardly of the com- 55 2 2,097,898 pleted container to form a handle therefor, the upper edge of the inner wall of the channel, said material forming the container being of such ‘ tongues being disposed in contiguous relation rigidity as to permit of use of the ear as a with one another to form a solid bottom for the handle. In packing, the containers, the ear 2 container, and means co-acting with the channel may be folded adjacent the arcuate walls of the to maintain the tongues in their contiguous rela tion and to reinforce the bottom, said means in container along score line 5, to provide for nest ing of the same for packing and use, the ear, cluding a disk adapted to rest on top of the bot however, being readily displaceable as shown in Figure 5, for use as speci?ed. 10 - It is obvious that various changes and modi ?cations may be made to the details of construc tion without departing from the general spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claims. I claim: . 15 - L In a container, a body portion, the lower edge of the'body being formed with an internal tom forming tongues, and a depending ?ange at the outer edge of the disk receivable in the chan— nel and adapted to force the tongues into contigu 10 ous relation with respect to each other. 3. In a container, a wall formation shaped in the form of an inverted hollow truncated cone, the lower edge portion of the wall being bent upwardly and inwardly to form an ,annular 15 channel, radial tongues extending inwardly from channel, tongues extending inwardly from the the upper edge of the inner wall of the annular - upper edge of the inner wall of the channel, said channel, said tongues adapted to be disposed in tongues being disposed in contiguous relation contiguous relation with one another to form a 20 with one another to form a solid bottom for the container, and means co-acting with the channel to maintain the tongues in their contiguous rela tion and to reinforce the bottom. 2. In a container, a body portion, the lower 25 edge of the body being formed with an internal channel, tongues extending inwardly from the solid bottom for the container, and a ?anged 20 disk resting upon the contiguously disposed tongues, the ?anges on the disk ?tting snugly in the channel and adapted to force and maintain the tongues in their contiguous relationship. 25 SAMUEL REICH.
