3 Claims. (Cl. 229--5.5)
This invention relates to paper containers, and ufacturing cost. Therefore, usually the premium
more particularly, to a bottom structure incor
porating means for permitting the container to
be used in connection with the sale of merchan
5 disc, where premiums are given with the indi
vidual sales with the idea of stimulating the sale
of the merchandise sold in the container.
The invention resides in the combinations and
constructions hereinafter set forth and claimed.
The drawing represents a perspective view of a
container embodying the invention with parts in

is the possibility of the purchaser removing the
lid far enough to observe the picture or indicia,
or, in other Words, has somewhat the same dis
advantage as in the case where the picture or
indicia is printed on the outside of the container.
Also, problems arise in connection with printed 10
indicia on the inside of the lid, or on the inside
of the container, in that the inside of the con
tainer coming in contact with the merchandise
must be subsequently ‘covered with a protective
coating, such as paraffin. The printing thus be- 15
The invention comprises generally a paper con
tainer including a cylindrical body or barrel por
15 tion, a bottom closure provided with a circum
ferential marginal ?ange extending substantially
parallel with the side of the body portion and ar
ranged within the body adjacent one end thereof
with the adjacent end portion of the body crimped
20 over the edge of the ?ange and overlapping the
inner wall thereof, a disk having an indicia ap
plied to one side thereof overlying the outer sur
face of the bottom closure, with the indicia to
ward the bottom closure and the crimped por
25 tion of the body coacting with the margin of said
disk to retain it in place.
has consisted of some picture or indicia attached
to or applied to the under side of the lid. This
procedure also has a disadvantage in that there
It has become more or less common practice,
in connection with the sale of certain goods, such
as confections, to give a premium with each in
30 dividual sale, which premiums are retained by
the purchaser until a certain number of premiums
have been collected, which premiums are returned
to the retailer, and some sort of prize is given
the purchaser, or additional merchandise of the
35 same description given free. Certain merchandise
is being sold extensively in small paper containers,
as for example, ice cream, and in carrying out
the premium idea to stimulate the sale of the par
ticular kind of ice cream, premiums are o?ered,
comes an extra or additional step in the manu
facture of the container and lid, which materially
increases the cost of the container.
, This invention has, as an object, a container‘
construction whereby the indicia or picture con
stituting the premium is so applied or a?ixed to
the container that it is impossible for the pur
chaser to determine what the premium is until
the container has been disassembled to the point ‘
of destruction.
A further object is to provide a construction
permitting the use of the premium which will not
add any substantial additional time to the fabri
cation of the container.
In the drawing, in designates the body portion
of a paper container, the upper half of which is
rolled or beaded over, as at H, for the chief pur
pose of stiffening the container and adding to its

prising a central discoidal portion having a cir
cumferential marginal ?ange l3,/which extends
at substantially right angles to the closure or par- .
allel to the side wall of the body portion it. This
40 for example, pictures of popular or prominent _ closure i2 is inserted in the bottom'body adjacent 40
personages, such as moving picture stars, ex
presidents of the United States, etc., which pic
tures, for convenience are usually printed upon
the container. The objection to this procedure is
45 that the purchaser, who is usually a child of
school age, will not accept a container of ice
cream, if it bears a premium which- he has pre
viously collected. That is, he will insist on an
other package containing another premium, so as
50 to more quickly complete the set or number of
premiums required to obtain the prize offered.
This disadvantage has been overcome partially
by placing the premium within the container.
However, it is desirable not to make the premium
a separate article, because of the additional man
the end thereof and is initially spaced a short
distance from the end of the body portion, and
the free end is turned or crimped over the ?ange
l3, as at - l t.
it designates a disk of paper,‘or similar mate- 45
rial, on one side of which is applied a picture or
indicia. As here shown, a map it of one of the
states of the Union is printed, or otherwise ap
.plied. The disk i5 is substantially of the same
diameter as the internal diameter of the flange 50
i3 and is located within the flange adjacent the
outer surface of the bottom closure i2, and with
the indicia 56 arranged toward the bottom closure
12. The crimp or bead ii overlaps the margin
of the diskv l5 and thus holds it securely in place. r
In manufacturing the container, the disks are
simultaneously printed and blanked out, and are
inserted in the inverted cup-shaped closure 12
and the bottom closures and the disks l5 are in
serted, as a unit, in the bottom of the body por
tion l0, and the end wall of the body crimped
over in the usual manner.
The inner end por
tion 84 of the body wall overlaps the margin of
the disk 95 holding‘ it ?rmly in place. It will be
observed that in order to remove the disk i5, to
observe the indicia it, it is necessary to destroy
the bead or crimp ii, and thus destroy the con
tainer. Also, the disk 85 may be formed of any
low priced paper and may be readily printed, due
15 to the fact that the disk 95 is not in contact
with the merchandise, and accordingly does not
have to be in any manner treated for moisture or’
the like.
The disk 95 may be of such diameter as to be
20 pressed into the bottom of the container after
the crimp it is formed. In this instance, the
disk l5 would be of such diameter as to be a
press-?t against the inner portion H of the
body wall, and would be held in place by fric
25 tional engagement of the wall M against the
peripheral edge of the disk. With such struc
ture, it would still be comparatively difficult to
remove the disk it? without noticeable damage to
the container.
This construction provides a means whereby
it is possible to use premiums in connection with
the sale of merchandise in a container, and the
the disk I! adds in no way to the time consumed
in manufacturing the container. The only ad
ditional expense involved is the blanking and
printing of the disk, which is a comparatively
cheap operation requiring less time and expense
than to print the indicia either on the side of the '
container body, or on the underside of the lid.
What I claim is:
1. A container comprising a cylindrical body,
a bottom closure comprising a central discoidal 10
portion and having a circumferential marginal
?ange extending parallel to the side wall of the
container, 9. disk having an indicia applied to
one side thereof, said disk being arranged within
said ?ange with the indicia toward the bottom 15
of the bottom closure, and the lower end of the
body being infolded against the inner side of
said flange and against the lower side of said
disk adjacent the margin thereof to hold the
bottom closure and disk in the body.
2. A container comprising a tubular body, a 20
bottom closure having a depending annular ?ange
arranged against the inner surface of the body,
with the adjacent end portion of the body folded
over the edge of said ?ange and lying against 25
the inner surface of said ?ange, a disk having
an indicia applied to one side thereof arranged
within the ?ange of the bottom closure, with the
indicia toward the outside surface of the bottom
closure, and with the margin of said disk over 30
lying the infolded portion of the body to lock
the disk against the bottom closure. _
premiums are entirely withheld from the sight
3. A container comprising a tubular body por
of the purchaser, until after the purchase and the tion, a bottom closure, a disk having indicia ap
35 destruction of the container. When the disk 95 .
plied to one side thereof arranged in the bottom
- is removed'fromthe container, it is in a dry and closure with the indicia toward the bottom of 35
desirable condition, whereby the purchaser may
carry it in his pockets or otherwise, whereas when
the indicia is printed on the inner side of the
40 cover, it is necessary to remove the merchandise,
as ice creamywhich tends to form a sticky un
desirable coating on the under side of the lid. It
will be further observed that the insertion of
said bottom closure, and the bottom portion of
said tubular body being infolded and interlocking
with the marginal portion of said bottom closure
and disk to permanently secure the closure and
said disk to the body portion.
