Y ' Application December -9, 1936, Serial No. 115,015` - 1 Claim. (ci. 229-17) VThis invention relates 'to- cartons, and more stance is integral with the wall 8 and extends at particularly to cartons formed of paper or its relatively opposite ends beyond the corre- , analogous material; and an object of the inven tion is to provide a _carton particularly designed spending ends of the wall 8. _Further the blank 6 is slit on lines' I3 which form extensions of the fold line l, and is also 51 folded on fold lines I4 to provide for the walls. 8, 9, I0, and Il, upper end flaps or extensions I5, I8, I 1, and I8 respectively. Also at the lower edge thereof the blank 6 is 5 for usein the vending of milk, cream or the like. Briefly the invention consists in theprovision 'of a carton formed from ia single blank of paper, suitably waxed or otherwise treated if desired to render it impervious to liquid, and cut, shaped, 10 dimensioned and folded to provide a substantially slit on lines I9 which slits I9 are in line with thc elongated rectangular carton or receptacle hav fold lines '|. Also adjacent the lower portion ing improved closure means associated therewith. The invention together with its' objects and advantages will be best- understod from a study of the following description4 taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein; for the walls 8, 9, IU, and I I, bottom flaps 2|. In act-ual practice the blank 6 is first folded Figure l is a perspective view of a carton em bodying the features of _the present invention. thereof the blank 6 is foldable- on lines 20 to form on the fold lines 1 and la with the extension I2, as shown in Figure 6 disposed against the inner face of the wall ‘I to align a window slot 22 pro f vided in theflap'or extension 'I2 with a window Figures 2 and 6 are detail sectional views taken 20 substantially on the lines 2_2 and 6-6 respec slot 23 provided in the wall I I. A portion of the iiap or extension I2 around the slot 22 is pressed outwardly as at 24 so as to accommodate ,between N) 0 , Figure 4 is a top plan view of the carton. Also to form -the bottom for the carton the 25 flaps 2| are folded in super-imposed relation and tively of Figure 1. Figure 3 is an enlarged detail sectional view « the slotted portion of the extension I2 and the similar to Figure 2 but'showing the plies of the wall || a narrow elongated strip 25 of “Cello closure flap separated so as to accommodate a phane” or other transparent material whereby to _ 25 straw. provide a sight window for the completed carton. Figure 5 is a plan View of the blank from which the carton is formed.~ Figure 7 is a perspective view of a sheet of 30 transparent material hereinafter more fully re ferred to. ‘ ` Figure 8 is a fragmentaryplan -view of a blank from which a slightly. modified form of carton Vis formed. Figure 9 is a Atop plan View of the second form 35 of carton and ' ' lü'ílbilix‘es 10 and 11 are sectional views takensubst tially on the lines Ill-_Hl and |I----I| re specti ely of Figure 9. 40 ,_ Referring to the drawings by reference nu merals it will be seen, that in each form of the invention a suitable blank is provided and this blank is cut, shaped and dimensioned so that when folded on predetermined fold lines a sub- „ >45 stantially rectangular carton is provided. adhesively or otherwise united together to present a reinforced, multi-ply bottom vwall 26 for the carton. ' ' Also in completing the carton the flaps I5, I6, Il, and I8 are folded over one another in super imposed relation and adhesively united or other wise secured together to provide a reinforced ‘ multi-~ply top 2l for the carton. , Further in accordance with the present inven tion the innermost flap I8 is provided with an opening 29 properly positioned, and which may be of suitableedge contour, preferably being of the edge contour shown. The flap I6 which is disposed immediately in super-imposed contact on the ñap I8 is also provided with an opening 28 of an edge contour corresponding to the open -ing 29 but materially larger than the opening 29 so that the portion of the flap |8 immediately 45 defining the’edge of the opening 29 may serve, Referring more particularly to the form of the invention shown in Figures 1 to 7, inclusive, it will be seen that the carton illustrated in these ' as clearly shown in Figures 2 and 3 as a ledge 30. Also the ilap Il which is disposed in superim figures and indicated generally by the reference posed relation to the ilap I6 has struck out there-A 50 numeral 5 is composed of a substantially rec tangular blank 8 ‘folded on parallel fold lines '| from a closure flap 3| that is of an edge con to provide walls l8, 9, I0, and || respectively. tour corresponding to the edge contours of open Further at one edge> thereof the blank _6 is pro ings 28 and 29. By'strlking out the closure ilap 3| vided with an elongated relatively narrow lateral from the top wall flap I1 there is provided in the 55 ñsmge or extension I2, which in the present in flap Il an opening 32 that is substantially of the 2 2,107,613 saine size as the opening 28 as will be clear from a study of Figures 2 and 3. Also in accordance with the present invention the top wall flap I5 which is super-imposed im mediately upon the ñap I1 has a portion thereof removed so as to provide an opening 33 that is slightly smaller than the openings 28 and 32 so that the edge of the ñap I5 defining the opening 33 pz'ojects- inwardly from the edges of the flaps I6 and |1 as shown in Figure 2 so as to form with the ledge 30 an internal groove 34 that receives the free edges of the closure flap 3i in a manner u» provide a positive retaining means for retaining i6a, Ila provided with openings 38 that are cir cular and are of the same size te align 4with one another when the flaps are in the super-imposed position shown in Figure l0. Also the innermost top wall ñap |811. is provided with a circular open ing 39 that is slightly smaller than the openings 38 so that the flap |8a about the opening 39 forms a ledge ¿lll upon which is adapted to seat a_ cir cular or disc-like stopper 4| as shown in Figure 10. Also, thez?lap |5a which is the outer or top 10 most top wall ñap is provided wit‘n a-suitably posi tioned substantially circular opening 42, and at the marginal edge portion of this‘opening the flap |5a is pressed upwardly to provide a hollow cir Also by so forming the opening 33 in the flap cular bead 43 the inner side of which forms a 15 l5 there is formed within the confines of the> spring'lip 44 that is adapted to spring into posi opening 33 a flap er tongue 35 which is adhesively ' tion over the top of the closure disc 4| to'yieldably retain the disc 4| seated on the ledge 43 against or otherwise-united with the flap 3| so as to pro vide with the flap 3| a two-ply closure flap for casual displacement and as clearly shown in Fig the closure flap 3|v _against being casually opened. 20 the pouring opening formed by the opening 28, 29, 32, and 33, in the top wall flaps I6, |8,_ |1, and I5. x ~ l Y Further, and if desired, the flap 32 may be pro vided with an aperture 36 to accommodate a straw when the’flap 35-is peeled back oiï of the ñap‘3l and as clearly shawn in Figure 3.' - - ~ It will be of course understood that the exten sion I2 adhesively united-with the inner face of the wall fold || for securing the carton in a 30 rigid set-up condition. 20 ' ure 10. It will thus be seen that in thisforrn of the invention the closure disc 4| maybe employed and as the same is being inserted into closed position to seat on the ledge 40 the inner wall 44 of j the bead- 4.3 will “give” inwardly to permit the disc 4| 25 fto be properly seated. After the disc 4| has been properly seated said wall 44 of the bead 4.3, serving as a spring lip, will spring outwardly to engage the marginal edge of the disc 4| at the top side of 'the disc for releasably securing the disc in seated 30 It will thus be. seen that when the blank is. and closed position. It will be noted that in both forms of the in folded and the parts referred to adhesively united together a cartonsuch as shown in Figure 1 will vention the extension i' 2 or |2a as the case may be result. For this carton Vthere will be provided,A ,has the upper portion thereof extended beyond 35 as before, explained,` in the ~top 21 of the carton a pouring opening for which a closure flap formed by the flaps 3| vand 3,5 is provided. When the closure ñap is in completely closed position ñap element 3| will rest on the ledge 3G within the groove 34, the edge of the opening 33 in the uppermost fold or han I5 thus serving as a means for retaining the closurañap in closed position and requiring a positive pull to be ex the fold line for the top wall ñaps so that the 35 upper end of, for example the extension I2a, will fold inwardly as at |217 and as shown in Figure l1 ’ to exert a yielding pressure against the innermost one of the top wall ñaps. to prevent a collapsing of the top wall. ' “ ` _ l 40 It is thought that clear understanding, con struction, utility and advantages'of a carton em. bodying the features of the present invention will erted on the closure in arder to eiîect a swinging ’ be had without a more detailed description. of the closure to the open position shown in broken line in Figure 2. Thus it will be seen Having thus _described the invention, whatl is claimed is:- . that t‘ne closure ñap will not likely swing to open A carton of the class- described constructed of , position under weight of the contents of the car ton in the event the carton is placed in an in a. folded blank and having walls provided at their upper ends'with _Ílaps arranged in super-imposed relation and positively united together to pro 50 .\ verted or upsidedown position. It will be further noted, and as shown'in Figure vide a multi-ply top wall for the carton, all of said > 3 that when it is desired to `make use of :a straw 31 or the like for withdrawing some of the con flaps being provided- with lapertures coinciding to into the carton as shown in Figure 3. uppermost of said super-imposed _ila-ps having at _ the edge thereof deñning the aperture therein a raised flexible bead .the inner side of which presents a spring lip adapted to spring into en gagement with a closure disc seating on the inner most one of said ilaps for releasably retaining the closure disc within the pouring opening.` deñne a single pouring opening for the carton, and tents from the carton the flap 35 is peeled back oil the aperture in the lowermost one of said flaps of the ñap to eápose the opening '36 thereinv being of a size slightly less than the apertures in and through this opening the straw 3l' is passed the other of said super-imposed~ñaps, and the In the form of the linvention shown in Figures 8 to 11 inclusive the carton is formed in substan tially the same manner as the preferred embodi ment of the `carton indicated by the numeral5 in Figuresl to 8 inclusive. However, in this second form. of the invention, the carton, being, Figure 8 to l1 inclusive, indicated generally by the reference numeral 31 has the top wall flaps - IRWIN KOTCHER. ‘ MORRIS KOTCHER.
