The transverse fold lines of the blank de?ne different breadths of panels longitudinally of the blank, the panels l2, l4, l6 and i8 being of sub- 18 stantially the same breadth, while panels ll, l3 are of Substantially the same breadth as each Other. panel 95 0f rather less breadth than panels H. i3, and panels l1, IQ of substantially thesame breadth. but of less breadth dimensions than that 20 preferred embodiment of the invention, and in of panel i5. which: F‘lg_ 1 1s a plan of a, blank according to the The opposite ends of the panel l5 are provided with similar ?aps 28 which are adapted to fold present invention, the broken lines indicating fold 25 lines or folds; Fig. 2 1s a plan view of some of the panels shown in Fig. 1, and illustrating articles of merchandise attached thereto; Fig. 3 is an elevation of the parts shown in Fig. so 2, both ?gures intended to mush-ate a, partial folding up of the blank; Flg. 4 is an end view of parts shown in Figs. 2 and 3 and showing an additional step in folding the blank; ‘ upon fold lines 29—29 extending longitudinally of the blank. The blank is incised or sheared length- 25 wise thereof at 30, along lines extending in line with the fold lines 29, the incisions 30 extending to the fold line 24. Such incisions provide the panel l5 with ?aps 28 at opposite ends'which are of greater .breadth- than the distance between the fold lines 39 23, 24 which de?ne the-panel [5, thereby provid ins lateral extensions or shoulders 3| at corres pending portions of the ?aps 28.

The illustrated blank com- . to on the panel or panels which lie adjacent to the extensions or shoulders 3| of the flap 28, to which 55 2,128,197 end a series of tabs ‘I may be struck out from'the material of the panel I8 and a series of tabs 42 struck out from the material of the panel II, and these tabs are indicated in Fig. 1 as extending in a direction away from the exposed surface of the blank. To these tabs 4 I, 42 there may be positive ly secured and held upon the panels I8, I8 a plu rality of articles of merchandise, in the-manner disclosed by U. 8. Letters Patent to Jacob Strand. 10 No. 1,581,886 for a sales and display card. In that patent the tabs such as ‘I or 42 are combined in such way with assembled picture hangers, such as 48, and nails, such as 44, as that the assembled articles of merchandise are prevented from being ll accidently detached from their supports. In Fig. l the articles of merchandise are not illustrated as they would probably be located upon the unex posed surface of the blank there shown, unless the tabs are on the exposed surface. In Figs. 2, 3, 4'and 5 some'of the steps in fold ing up the blank to set up or provide a box or car ton are shown. In Fig. 2 it is assumed that, with the articles of merchandise attached, the panels I8, I8,\I'|, I8 and I8 had been folded up into more or less box shape, and these parts go within the ultimate wrapper so as to be contained within the outer walls of the box. The folding together of the panels I8, I'I, I8 and I8 disposes the articles of merchandise to view which are upon the panel I8, box corresponding with the parts of the blank shown in Fig. 1. so that it would be easier to iden tify corresponding parts- In Figs; 6 to 10 inclusive the parts beyond the panel II and including the panel it have been brought around the ultimate ' contents of the box so as to constitute a wrapper or enclosing means. In a well known manner the panel II constitutes the bottom wall of the box or carton, the panel I2 the top wall of. the box and the panels II, I8, the side walls of the box, the 10 wall I8 being between the walls I2, II and the pan el II being at the opposite side of the box. The ?aps 82 and 28 are brought around towards each other so that with the extensions 84 they con stitute with the flaps 28 multi-ply walls of the box 15 between the sides, top and bottom, while the flaps 38 are folded towards the box and inserted be tween the edges of the multi-ply walls and the bottom wall ll. The ?aps 28 and 88 extendin the same direction as shown in Fig. 9, while the ?aps 20 32 extend in the opposite direction, the extensions 34 being outside thereof. The disposition of the flaps is also shown in Fig. 10. It will be seen that the articles of merchandise will not only be lo cated in the space between the wall or partition I6 and the top wall I2, but between the wall or partition l8 and the bottom wall I4. The means for locking the box or rather securing the box in while the articles on panel I8 as well as such box-shape, together with the contents, reside in the extensions 84 and the flaps 88, in this form of panel, would be beneath panel I8. Fig. 3 clearly the invention. shows how the articles of merchandise would look Attention is directed to the fact that the flaps 28 extending at an angle to the wall Ii as shown more clearly in Figs. 7 and 9 lie against the ad Jacent edges of the walls between them and fur thermore their lateral extensions or shoulder por when looking directly at the panel I1, and it is clear that the tabs ll, 42 for supporting the arti cles will extend in opposite directions respectively from the panels I6 and I8. Figs. 2 and 3 both show the flaps 28 of panel l5 as extended away from the major portion of the blank, as in Fig. 1, but in Fig. 4 the panel I5 has been folded away from panel It so as to be disposed opposite to the so - as tions 8| extend at substantially right angles ‘to and beyond the intermediate partition wall I8, this being one of the walls which supports the articles of merchandise a?ixed thereto, and the 40 I4 ‘is shown as turned at right angles to panel I5 upper and lower edges of the flaps 28 will lie closely adjacent to or in contact with the walls I2, I! thereat. As the wall I5 and its ?aps 28. and its ?aps 28. Of course the relative arrange ment in folding need not be as shown in Fig. 4 and it depends upon the direction in which the as well as the walls I8 and II are composed of comparatively stiff cardboard and as the wall l8 45 and the wall I8 are also of such comparatively panel II, in which case the extensions or shoul ders 8| are shown as downward, and the panel workman folds the parts to obtain the relative . still.’ material, the partition walls I8, I8, sup-. position shown in Fig. 4. \ porting the articles of merchandise will be reli In Fig. 5 the panels which have been folded or set up as just described are shown in perspective, so that the disposition of the parts at this stage of the folding will be clear. In this ?gure it will be seen that the panel I‘ is at the bottom, while the panels I8 or I8 are in succession above panel I4, and one of the flaps 28 is shown in the position that it then has in line with the panel I5, with its shoulder or extension 3| extending upwardly in such plane, so that the same will be above the plane of the panel I6. In this view it is also seen that the panel I9 extends upwardly from panel I8 so that its edge is disposed in the corner formed by panels I5 and I8. The next step is to turn the ably held and supported by the, flaps 28 and their shoulders 8|, and the supports for the articles will be reinforced thereby, and as the edges of said flaps and the other flaps lie substantially coincident with each other as shown in Fig. 10 ‘the bottom and top of the box will also be rein forced. This is particularly true because the ?aps 28 are preferably integral extensions of the wall I5 and may be folded at substantially right angles thereto in setting up ‘the box. Itwill fur thermore be seen that in this form of the inven tion the articles of merchandise supported by the partition wall l8 rest upon the bottom- wall I4, throughthe intervention of the ?aps 38, and flaps 28 in the direction indicated by the arrow in Fig. 5 towards the open ends of the spaces between , assist in sustaining the position of the parts with in the box. the panels I6, I8 and I4. The next step is to com plete the wrapping and enclosing of the. article supporting panels and their concomitant parts by the wrapper which is provided by the panels, etc. shown in Fig, l and which are there illustrated ultimate disposition 70 as above the wastes. and arrangement of the illustrated parts to com plete the box with its contents will be made clear by the description of the ?gures after Fig. 5. Referring now to Figs. 6 to 10 inclusive, the 75 same reference numerals are used for parts of the‘ a 4 It has been stated that the parts I4, etc. be-v yond the part I5 shown in Fig. 1 constitute a wrapper for the contents of the box and it is to be understood that the wrapper may be of any other suitable construction than that shown. Obviously the looking or securing means for the 70 box may be provided in any other well known manner, as by providing a slit in the wall I5 .and forming the wall I I with a suitable locking tongue for insertion into said slit, as is common prac 75 2,128,197 ‘tice with cartons. In such case it is obvious that the flaps 38 will not be necessary. It is also obvious that the panels l8, l9 shown in Fig. 1 may be omitted, in which case the lower edge of panel i‘! would rest upon the adjacent wall of the box, and there would be but a single series of articles in the box, supported upon the panel l6. In such case the series of articles on panel i6 would be supported by two walls, wall I5 and a broader wall l'l than that shown, and the ?aps 28 with the offset portions 3i will pro vide additional support for the articles which are reliably secured to the panel l6. Of course other articles than picture hangers 15 and their nails may be similarly mounted in a box and held against relative movements. It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that further modi?cations of the invention may be made without departing from the spirit of the 20 invention as de?ned in the appended claims. What'I claim as new is: 1. A box blank, of somewhat stiff sheet ma terial, comprising at least two panels connected by a fold line and of relatively different breadths 25 transversely of the fold line and of substantially the same lengths, flaps foldably connected with the opposite ends of the smaller panel by fold lines to adapt them to be folded toward such panel, the blank being incised along lines aligned 30 with such ?ap fold lines and up to the panel con necting fold line for a distance much less than the said breadth of the larger panels, and the incisions de?ning a greater breadth for the ?aps 3 than the breadth of the smaller panel, the larger panel adapted for supporting articles, and cov ering means adapted to closely enwrap, surround and secure therein the two panels and the ?aps in such position that the panels extend at an 5 angle to each other and the ?aps extend at an angle to the panels, the breadth of such ?aps be ing such as to approximately define the distance between the bottom and the top of the covering means. 2. A box or carton, of cardboard-like material 10 including two inner walls foldably connected to gether, and of relatively different breadths trans versely of the line of connection and of substan tially the same lengths, the walls lying at an 15 angle to each other, ?aps foldably connected with the opposite ends of the smaller wall and being of greater breadth than such wall, to pro~ vide lateral extensions, such ?aps being folded inwardly against the opposite ends of the two 20 walls to extend at substantially right angles to such walls, with the extensions projecting away from the plane of the larger wall andremaining in the same planes as the ?aps, such larger wall adapted for receiving an article, and wrapping 25 means closely enclosing and securing the two walls, with the ?aps with their lateral extensions extending along inner surfaces of the wrapper, and opposite edges of the flaps with their exten sions confined by opposed portions of the wrap 80 per and de?ning the distance between such por tions.
