The blank with the articles mounted

Referring to F1g_ 1, the blank of sheet material
The foldable blank is preferably provided with
means for aillxing articles of merchandise there
there shown may be of cardboard or other similar
55 tough paper material. 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
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

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

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

ultimate disposition

and arrangement of the illustrated parts to com

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‘
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
‘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
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
2. A box or carton, of cardboard-like material
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
