as will be described.
The principal object of my invention is the
provision of a spear or arrow shaped box adapt
ed to' be formed from a single blank of material.
Another object is the provision of a paper or
10 board blank adapted to be folded into a spear
or arrow shaped box having a generally triangu
lar shaped head portion and a generally rec
tangular shaped shaft portion.
Another object is the provision of a spear or
15 arrow shaped box adapted to form a receptacle
for a variety of articles, but preferably single
articles such as candy bars, perfume bottles, gum
sticks and the like.
The general features of my invention are clear
20 from the following description taken with the
accompanying drawings wherein
Fig. 1 is a perspective View showing the box
in assembled condition as it appears when the
blank shown in Fig. 2 is employed;
Fig. 2 shows the blank of one embodiment of
my invention;
Fig. 3 shows a modified form of box;
Fig. 4 shows a blank from which the box illus
trated in Fig. 3 may be formed;
Fig. 5 shows another modified form of box
30
blank; and
Figs. 6 and 'l show the box of my invention
assembled in an outer display container.
According to the main features of some of the
25
35 embodiments of my invention, I provide a blank
comprising top and bottom members of gener
ally spear or arrow shape, the two members each
providing a head portion of generally triangular
shape and a shaft portion of generally rectan
40 gular shape, the width of the rectangular por
tion being less than the width ofthe base of the
triangular portion so that a portion of the base
projects beyond the shaft portion where the
two portions meet. The sides of the top and bot
45 tom portions with the exception of the project
ing portion of the base are bounded by folding
lines connecting projecting portions which, when
the box is folded, become the vertical side walls
of the box and also comprise tucks, tongues, etc.
50 With which the box is made rigid, with which
the assembly is secured and with which access
to the interior of the box is provided. One verti
cal wall portion of the box interconnects the
two top and bottom portions. In Fig. 2, this
55 interconnecting portion is a side wall running
Referring now first to Fig. 2, I provide a blank 5
comprising a bottom portion 31 and a top por
tion 36, each having a triangularly shaped head
portion and a rectangularly shaped shaft por
tion. A side member 38 interconnects the por
tions 3'1 and 36, folding lines A and B being pro- 10
vided along the boundaries thereof. The bot
tom portion or member 31 has another rectan
gular projecting side portion 39 corresponding
in shape and position to the portion 38 and
oppositely facing rectangular projecting side por- 15
tions 42 and 4I. These members are connected
to the bottom portion or member 37 at folding
lines D, E and F. Tucks 49 and 5| are connected
respectively to members 4l and 42.
The top member 36 is provid-ed with overlap- 20
ping ñap or side members 43, 46 and 44 provided
with locking tongues 53, 56 and 54, respectively.
The locking tongues 53, 56 and 54 are adapted
to extend into locking slots 5l, 59 and 58, respec
tively, provided alon-g the periphery of the bot- 25
tom member 3l and coinciding with folding lines
D, F, and E, respectively. Folding lines I, K and
J are provided between the overlapping flap or
side members 43, 46 and 44, respectively, and the
top member and folding' lines L, N and M are 30
provided between these members and their re
spective locking tongues 53, 56 _and 54. The side
member 38 is provided with a small punch hole
6I through which a string or otherv fastening
means may be extended as shown in Fig. 1.
An 35
Iend member 41 is connected to the top portion
36 at folding line G and a tuck 52 projects be
yond the end member, a folding line H being
provided between the end member 4l and the
tuck 52.
40
The blank shown in Fig. 2 and described here
inabove is foldable to produce an assembled and
completed box as shown in Fig. 1 by folding the
same along the several folding lines identiñegl
and which preferably comprise scores formed by 45
applying pressure to the relatively stiff paper
stock from which the blank is preferably made.
The preferred manner of folding the blank is as
follows:
The blank is folded preliminarily along fold- 50
ing lines D, E, and F, and I, J, and K. Next the
blank is folded along folding lines A and B so
that the top and bottom members are parallel
to each other and the members 38, 39, 4I and
42 comprise the side walls of the box with the 55
2
2,124,142
members 43, 44 and 46 overlapping the mem
bers 39, 4l and 42, respectively. The locking
tongues 53, 54 and 56 are now inserted through
the slots 51, 58 and 59, respectively, and the
81 and 86, 81 and 85, and 85 and 89. The bottom
member 86 is provided with a triangularly shaped
head portion 9| which, in turn, is provided along
one side with a side member 92. Lying along the
entire box is assembled with the exception of
the end portion. The article to be housed in
side 0f the side member 92 is a generally spear
the box is now inserted, the tucks 49 and 5I
are folded intol position, the blank is folded on
the folding lines G and H, the tuck 52 inserted
between the end shaft portion of the member
31 and the article housed in the box. Preferably
relatively short. The portion 93 is provided with
the article contained in the box is of such a
size and shape as to ñt smoothly but not too
tightly within the box and so the tuck 52 ade
quately holds the container closed. This is par
ticularly the case where merchandise is to be
displayed, for example, a bottle, in which case
the box usually would be set on end.
The box formed from the blank of Fig. 2 is de
scribed as a full folding box so assembled that no
glue or adhesive of any kind is required. It will
be understood that there may be occasion where
it is desirable to use an adhesive and in this case
there is no objection to assembling the box except
for the end portion in this manner. When an ad
hesive is employed, it will not be strictly neces
sary to provide the locking tongues 53, 54 and 56,
and furthermore, the locking slots 51, 58 and 59
shaped portion 93, the shaft portion of which is
a side member 94, there being a locking slot 95 on
the folding line W between the portion 93 and
side member 94. The triangularly shaped head
portion 9| is provided on its opposite side with an
overlapping flap or side member 96 and a lock
ing tongue 91 is attached to the member 96. Fold
lines P, X, Y and Z are provided as shown in Figô
5. This blank may readily be assembled into box
form and requires only one gluing operation and
one folding operation, The manner of assembly
is believed apparent without additional explana
tion. While, as described, this box has no bottom
portion so as to form a complete enclosure, such
may readily be provided, if desired, by attaching
a bottom member and associated tuck on either
member 85 or 86.
The box of my present invention is intended
primarily for decorative, design, advertising and
merchandising purposes. The design, of course,
may be provided in the form of a two-piece set
up box but there are advantages in the use of the
can also be omitted. However, the blank formed
in the exact manner illustrated in Fig. 2 may be
assembled by the use of adhesives, if desired.
In the form of the boX shown in Fig. 4, the con
nection between the top and bottom members is
folding type of box readily understood by those
skilled in the art.
30
W’hile the box may be made from any suitable
foldable paper sheet or board, due to its design
at the end of the shaft portion thereof. In this
case, I provide top and bottom members 69 and
62, respectively, having an end member 63 dis
posed between them. The bottom member 62 is
binations of colors and materials to have the
effect desired in any particular case. For exam
ple, I may employ metallic board, paper board
covered with aluminum or tin foil, paper board
character, I prefer to utilize striking colors, com
provided with four side members 64, 65, 66 and
covered with colored cellophane and the like.
61. The top-member 60 has overlapping flap or

, side members 68, 69, 1| and 12 to which are se
ing and advertising schemes which may be built
cured locking tongues 13, 14, 15 and 16, respec
tively. These locking tongues are adapted to en
gage in locking slots 11, 18, 19, and 8l, respec
tively. An opening 82 is provided in the top mem
around it. I show very simply in Figs. 6 and 7
two attractive displays which may be utilized with
the style of box described herein. The box may
_ ber 60, and the shaft portion of the top member
decoration, as a box or container for party favors,
may be provided 'with perforations 83 so that the
box may be broken along the line of the perfora
tions and the resulting tabs folded back for the
purpose of displaying the merchandise. Both
the perforations and an opening such as 82 may
for display purposes, trade Stimulators, and the
like, in the industries and trades in which novelty
styles of merchandise and advertising, and -the
like, are employed. The box may be employed for
confections, candy bars, for ilat or round sticks,
for nut bars, for gum sticks, or packages of chew
ing gum, for novelty knick-knacks» of various
kinds, and for tubes and bottles containing vari
be provided in a single blank, or one alone may
be provided as desired, or, alternatively, both
may be omitted.
In describing the blank shown in Fig. 4, it ap
pears unnecessary to refer in detail to all of the
folding lines which are shown dotted in the draw
ing. If the blank be folded along all of the dotted
lines and the locking tongues inserted within thev
locking slots, a structure is produced in accord
(30Y ance with Fig. 3. Obviously, the contents of the
box cannot be removed through the end thereof,
but considerable latitude is afforded in opening
either one side of the box, the two sides forming
the sides of the triangular head portion, or, for
v that matter, the entire box may be disassembled
readily to remove the contents.
Fig. 5 represents another embodiment of my
invention. In this case, my-box blank comprises
top and bottom rectangular members 85 and- 86,
be employed as a Christmas tree ornament, as a
ous materials.
I have described my invention in detail in order
that those skilled in the art may practice the
same. It will be understood, however, that vari
ous changes in the form, proportion, size, and
minor details of the construction may be made
without departing from the spirit of my inven
tion and without sacrificing any of the advan
tages thereof. My invention is accordingly not to
be limited except in accordance with the append
ed claims.
What I claim as new and desire to protect by
