This invention relates to boxes for containing

have shown for purposes of illustration, one form
which my improved container may assume, and

member, top and body of the box;
Figure 3 is a section of a portion of the assem
15 bled box shown in Figure 1.
Referring more particularly to the drawing
the assembled box I consists of a body member
2 having integral side walls 3, a top member 4
and a securing member or band 5 for clamping
20 the top 4 to the side walls of the body member.
The members 2 and 5 are made of flexible paper
or the like, and the top 4 consists of a thin ?ex

outer face of the body 2 is coated with a layer
of waterproof wax M, which renders the box
waterproof and provides means for securing the
When the workman ?nally lifts the box I from
a supporting member, not shown, the side walls
3 will spring outwardly and clamp the lower/de
pending apron like portion ll of the translucent
top member 4 ?rmly against the waxed face of
the side walls. If desired these parts can be se
presently be described.
In practice, the box parts are shipped to the
purchaser, for example a baker, in the blank
form illustrated in Figure 2, and designated A,
B and C respectively, and the user assembles the
parts according to his requirements.
In this
connection it will be noted from Figure 2 that
the open ended rectangular securing member or
band 5 can be collapsed for shipping and stor
ing. A board or holder 6 is employed in assembly
curely adhered together by the application of 30
heat and pressure, however, a very tight seal is
had without doing so.
The band 5 is made from a single strip of pa’.
per, not shown, scored as at l8 to facilitate bend
ing, and is connected at its/opposite ends in any 35
suitable manner, not shown. A collar I9 is
formed along the upper edge of the band 5 by
disposed ?anges 8 of which are formed with slots
cutting notches 20, scoring along the lines 2|
and bendingvthe material inwardly. This collar
enhances the appearance of the box and by?vir 40
tue of its tendency to spring upwardly and out
wardly affords a resilient guard for the top mem-‘

lar also has a tendency to snugly engage‘ the line 45
side walls 3 of the body. This operation causes ’
the marginal edges of the top 4 to fold or drape
downwardly over the side walls 3 and between
the securing member or band 5 and these walls, 15
it being understood that the blank A is of sub
stantially the same length and width as the blank
B; that the height of the vertical walls I6 of the
securing member or band 5 is substantially the
same as the‘ height of the side walls 3 of the 20
body 2 and that when the walls 3 are in vertical
position the member 5 will sleeve snugly over

the application of heat and pressure, as vwill

considerable force. After the box has been filled
with a cake or the like the workman places the
translucent blank B over the top edges-of the
side walls 3 of the body 2 and then forces the 10

to the brackets by wing nuts I2. The brackets
can thus be conveniently adjusted inwardly to

ently be explained. If desirable the top face
