COMESTIBLE CONTAINER
Eveline H. Waldie, Leonia, N. J.
Application June 30, 1937, Serial No. 151,091
6 Claims. (Cl. 20G-47)
This invention relates to comestible containers 'Gratins a modification of certain structural de
and more especially to such containers adapted
to receive and hold comestibles during transportation and for use in dispensing the comestible
5 contents to the individual users.
is designated as l and is provided with a coop- 5
The invention is especially adapted for comes‘bibles Such as Candy 0r other Confections 01'
comestibles which may be served to the user by
being dispensed directly from the package or conio tainer in which they are purchased. I have
noticed that in connection with the packaging of
certain comestibles, such for example as candy,
when served directly from the package or box
in which it is purchased, the fingers of the users
15 become soiled or sticky from contact with the
comestibles and it is customary to use the handkerchief or a napkin to remove such substances
.from the lingers. I have also noticed that in
packages of this character it is customary to em20 ploy a soft pad such as cotton batting or the like
which is inserted between the inner face of the
cover and the contents of the container, serving
as a packing pad or buffer to prevent damage of
the Contents and to Securely pack the salme in
25 position within the container. I have conceived
the idea oi a container for comestibles of this
nature combining a single unitary structure serv-
ing the dual function of a packing pad and also
providing a plurality of paper napkins compris..
30 ing such pad By this means the Same Structure
which is utilized in place of the usual packing pad
will adequately serve not only this purpose but
Wm provide a supply of napkins which may be
individually removed for use by those to whom
35 the candy or the like comestible is served.

erating closure 2 which is in cooperative poSition
With respect t0 the Side Walls 0f the COl'ltail‘leI‘
body |- In the embodiment illustrated, the re
ceptaole contains pieces of candy such as 3 which
are preferably paoked in respectively individual 1o
paper ShellS 4; in the present embodiment the
Candy being arranged in two layers Separated by
a cardboard strip 5. A plurality of sheets of
relatively soft absorbent material are arranged
in superimposed Stacked formation to form a pad l5
5, and the Sheets are suitably Secured along one
edge -of Said Stack aS by rneanS of a pair of
spaced-apart Inetallio Clamps 'l and 3 provided
with stamped-out portions Such as 9 which pass
through the Stack to firmly hold the Same in poSi- 20
1ìiOn- A oorreSponding pair of Cooperating
Clamps I0 and Il are similarly attached in cor-v
responding SpaCed relation along the upper mar
glnall edge Of a Side Wall of Said Container
l.
The Clamps 'I and 8 are spaced a slight distance 25
outwardly from the marginal edge oi the pad 6
and the ClampS l0 and l l are Spaoed upwardly a
slight distance from the upper marginal edge of
Side Wall. t0
they are attached, and a'
pair of links I2 and I3 pass through the spaces 30
thus provided and Serve to Securely attach the
pall'S 0f I’j‘larnps 'lf-8 and IU-II together. This
construction provides a means for hingedly con

and
55
Fig. 5 is a fragmental section of the unit illus-
the insertion or removal of the cover 2 as will be
clearly indicated in Figs 1 and 3
When the cover 2 is removed (15E 4) the pad 6
may be removed from the container body I and 45
swung outwardly and downwardly to the position
indicated in Fig. 2, thereby permitting free access
to the candies and the removal oi the same from
the container. As a candy is removed, an indi
vidual napkin may be readily removed from the 50
pad 6; and in this connection it is pointed out
that where desired the napkin sheets may be per
forated as indicated at I4, so that each sheet may
be separated into two individual napkins. When
it is desired to replace the cover 2, the pad 6 may 55

be returned to its normal position as indicated in
Figs. 1 and 4, and in such position will serve as
a temporary closure in the event that it is de
sired not to replace the cover member 2.
In Fig. 5 I have shown a modiñcation, in which
the pad of napkins 6 is attached to an upper
marginal edge »o-f the container body l by two
cooperating strips of tape l5 and I6; the inner
faces of the said tapes being adhesively secured
20
at one edge to the respectively opposite sides of
the pad 6 and at the other edge to the respec
tively opposite edges of the upper marginal side
wall of the container l in the manner clearly in
dicated. In this embodiment the marginal edges
of the sheets comprising the pad ë are prefer
ably secured together by stitching' il which also
provides for ready severance of the individual
sheets from the pad.
Having thus described my invention with par
ticularity with reference to its preferred form,
it will be obvious to those skilled in the art, after
understanding my invention, that other changes
and modifications may be made therein'witho-ut
departing `from the spirit and scope of my in
25 vention, and I aim in the appended claims to
cover such changes and modifications as are
within the scope of the invention.
