With the foregoing and other objectsin view, 5
the invention will be more fully described here
inafter, and will be more particularlyv pointed out
in the claims appended hereto.

5 there are employed, in the main, two kinds of
boxes or wrappings, namely either the so-called
cap boxes, 1. e. boxes which consist of a box
body and a cover which is usually connected with
the box body in hinged fashion and which can
10 be placed over the box body, or boxes which are
open only on one end and which are closed with

The present invention aims at the creation of a -

of packages and nevertheless avoids their draw

The invention has for a further object to pro
vide a box structure, wherein, when the box is
open, the articles are exposed and at the end of
the box in position of easy access, and wherein
the cover or cap is hinged to the box body so that
40 the cap when closed may be ?tted over the body
like a cap and with the necessary tight ?t.

Another object is to provide a box wherein the
body and cap ?anges do not overlap but abut
in ?ush relation and wherein the articles are not
45 exposed at the edges of the box, particularly at
the openable end thereof, and the abutting ?anges
' are'supported at the inside to prevent injury to
the articles within the box.

Referring now to the drawings, and ?rst to 40
the form of the invention illustrated in Figures
1 and 2,_the invention comprises a box or con
tainer having a back wall or bottom portion it
provided with two side ?aps or flanges 12 bent up
thereon, and an additional ?ap c which extends 45‘
upward from the lower edge of the back wall a
to provide. a closed end wall a2 to cover the ends

. plot-e the box body. The parts a, b, and c with
their supplemental portions a2 and 01 form the
body of a box or container in which cigarettes, as
indicated by the dotted lines in Figures 1 and 3, or
other articles of like nature may be carried with
‘out unduly exposing them to the dampness or arid
ity of the surrounding atmosphere. The articles
in the container may be either unwrapped or if
or scored line 03 so that a greater area of the en
closed articlesis exposed if such is desirable. The
plate portion 1‘ has marginal rims or ?anges g.
The ?ange portions 9 are secured to the ?ange
portions 91 and k in any suitable manner, and
the inner end ?ange portion 7a is of the full depth
of the complete box'and the adjacent ends 92 of
the lateral ?anges g are increased in depth and
wrapped preferably in a wrapping sheet of papers merge into the portion k to provide rigid and

eral ?anges or rims i at its marginal edges. The
50 rims or ?anges i are of less height than the full
height of the box and are proportional in con

.
It will thus be seen that in all forms of the
invention the box, when open, exposes the upper
ends of the cigarettes at both the inner and 50
outer sides, but for the most part keeps the cis

are also of less height than the full height of the
box so that when the box is in closed position the
55 rims i are ?ush with the ?aps h and the sum of
the heights of any rim i and its corresponding
?ap h is equivalent to the desired‘ or total height
of the box. The outer portion ill of the rim is in
height equal to the height of the lateral portion
of the rim 2' and when the box is in closed posi
tion overlaps the end portion a’ of the box body
which covers the lower ends of the cigarettes.
The rim or ?ange k, adjoining the ?ap portion
e extends to the full height of the box and fur
nishes one end of the box when the cap is in
closed position.
‘
When closed the rims i and ?aps ‘h are ?ush
' and'furnish a smooth outer wall and permit the
sealing of the box prior to its initial use.
The entire box or container may be manufac
tured from a single cut piece, as is of course ap
parent from Figures 1 and 3.
In Figure? the box is shown as having an
additional ?ap portion 02 which is integral with
?ap c and can be bent forwardly about the creased
The cigarettes may be individually withdrawn
from the box by grasping the cigarettes at op
posite sides at their upper ends and the inner
?aps c5 and b, which are coextensive with the
box body, protect the end cigarettes and pre
vent themv-from accidental displacement from the
box during removal of other cigarettes from the
box.

It is obvious that various changes and modi
?cations may be made in the details of con
struction and design 01' the above speci?cally
described embodiment of this invention without
departing from the vspirit. thereof, such changes
and modi?cations being restricted only by the
