It (Claims.
The invention relates to the fabrication of boxes
or containers made from materials of the nature
of cardboard, pasteboard, or like ?brous stock,
and especially to the fabrication of a top or cover
5 member for such container. More particularly,
the invention‘ consists in providing a cover mem
ber having a side strip of paper board stock, cov
ered with'a thin sheet of decorative paper, con
stituting a ring adapted to be assembled with a I
10
single sheet bf coardboard constituting the head
of the cover member, the assembled top being
designed to telescopically engage the open end of
the container and to form therewith a completed
box.
In its broadest aspect, the present invention
consists in forming a bead throughout the upper
peripheral edge of the ring constituting the side
wall of the cover member, flattening such bead
substantially completely so as to form a flange
20 extending inwardly from such side wall member,
applying a quantity of glue or other adhesive ma
terial to the lower surface of the ?ange and secur
ing, by means of such adhesive, a single sheet of
cardboard constituting the crown or head of. the
a container top, to such side wall.
In the fabrication of a top or cover member for
a container of this general type, it has been the
practice to form a head of substantially fully
rounded form at the upper periphery. of the ring
30 constituting the side wall of the cover, and it was
sought to prevent the tendency of such rounded
bead to unroll by applying thereto a structure
consisting of two sheets of cardboard, one formed
with a peripheral groove into which the bead
35 was adapted to fit snugly, and the other, or'bot
tom member, formed of a single‘ sheet of stock
positioned immediately below the ?rst or crown
portion, and extending so as to have its peripheral
edge abut the portion of the ring member im
40 mediately below the rounded bead, thereby main
taining the cover structure in frictional engage
ment with the inner and lower surfaces of the
rounded bead.

We have found that such prior art construc
tion does not, to any appreciable extent, prevent
the loosening of the contact between the head of
the cover member and its side wall. On the con
out resort to the use of a lining member in the
cover structure, such as has been found necessary
in the fabrication, in accordance with the prior
art, of similar types of container tops.
In addition to the increased strength, rigidity,
and therefore, sturdiness, of the container top
structure, our novel construction is characterized
by a pleasing appearance of ‘the container, a fea
ture of considerable importance in the fabrication
of fancy boxes which, however, must be capable 10
of being produced at relatively low cost and for
competition with more expensively produced
boxes.
Our novel structure, therefore, is attractive in
appearance, sturdy in structural composition, and
may be fabricated at a cost considerably lower
than similar boxes of conventional construction.
A speci?c embodiment of our invention is illus
trated in the accompanying drawing, in which
Fig. l. is a partial vertical section through a
container having a top or covermember in the
fabrication of which our novel structure has‘ been
embodied; Fig. 2 is a fragmentary vertical sec—
tion through the ring member constituting the
side wall of the container top, showing the for 25
mation of the rounded bead at the upper edge
‘thereof; Fig. 3 is a view, in similar section, of
such ring member after the head at the upper
edge thereof has been substantially completely,
?attened; and Fig. 4 is a vertical section through 30
the container cover wall and crown, showing the
assembled relation of such elements.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, in ,
which similar reference characters identify sirni~
lar parts in the several views, the body of the 35
container is designated generally as 5, such body
having the upper peripheral edge thereof formed
with a rounded bead 6.
Our invention is con
cerned not with the structure of the container
body, but with. that of the top or cover member,
which is constituted of a ring ‘5 of cardboard,
pasteboard or like fibrous material formed, as
shown in Fig. 2, with a substantially circular
head 8. This bead is then completely ?attened
so as to have the form of a ?ange a substantially
as shown in Fig. 3, in which the two parts of the
?ange are in substantial contact at the core it of
',
'
i
.
trary, such a frictional contact, in spite of the the ?ange.
As shown particularly in Figs. 2 to t, the ring
snug ?t by which it is produced, yields a structure
50
50 which is not characterized by any particularly member may be provided with facing layers of
paper it, constituting ?nishing strips which may
e?ective'strengthening of the box structure.
By'our'novel construction of container top, we ' be suitably ornamented by decorative printing or
attain a} sturdiness and added strength oharacter-‘ otherwise.
The crown portion of the container top is con.
izing the joint between the elements of the con
stituted of a strip it of cardboard, pasteboard or 55
55 tainer top, which is not dependent upon any fric
tional holding of the elements thereof‘ together, the like, such strip having ,its peripheral edge
but being dependent upon positive adhesive con ' portions bent downwardly and outwardly‘so as to
tact between such elements, secure a measure of forms. recess throughout the peripheral edge

The assembling of our novel structure of con
tainer top, in contra-distinction to the practice of
the prior art, is effected by applying a layer ll of
glue or other suitable adhesive material to the
bottom surface of the ?ange 9 and pressing the
peripheral edge portion of the crown member I!
against such adhesive materal so as to e?fect a
joining, by such adhesive, of the peripheral edge
portion of the crown I2 to the bottom of the
?ange 9.
.
The crown member l2 of the cover may advan
tageously be provided with a surfacing strip l4
carrying the same design or embellishment as does
the facing strip 1 l of the side wall of the container
_ top, so as to maintain substantially the same de
sign throughout the outer surface of the com
pleted container cover.
It will be noted that in accordance with our
, novel construction, as shown clearly in Figs. land
4, the portion of the crown member constituting
the side wall forming the recess along its peripher
al edge, is not anywhere in contact with the inner
edge of the ?ange 9. By this construction, a par
container top, the upper edge thereof being turned
inwardly toward the axis of the ring and then out
wardly with the outermost portion positioned im
mediately below the inwardly turned portion, so
as to constitute a substantially ?attened ?ange at
the end of the ring, a crown member for said con
tainer top, the peripheral edge portions thereof
being turned downwardly and outwardly so as to
‘constitute a recess for receiving said ?attened
?ange of the ring member, and a layer of adhesive 10
between the lower surface of said ?ange and the
upper surface of the peripheral edge portion of
the crown member constituting the bottom of said
recess.
‘
2. A container top comprising a substantially 15
rigid ring member constituting a side wall of the
container top, the upper edge thereof being turned
inwardly toward the axis of the ring and then out
wardly with the outermost portion positioned im
mediately below the inwardly turned portion, so as 20
to constitute a substantially ?attened ?ange ‘at
the end of the ring, a crown member for said con
tainer top, the peripheral edge portions thereof
being turned downwardly and outwardly so as to
constitute a recess for receiving said ?attened
its peripheral edge, is produced, such ridge break-_ ?ange, and a layer of adhesive between the lower
. ing up the continuity of surface produced by the surface of said ?ange and the upper surface of the
peripheral edge portion of the‘ crown member con
juncture of the crown and the side wall of the con
stituting the bottom of said recess, the portion
tainer top.
' ticularly attractive appearance of the container
- stop, with a substantially open ridge I5 throughout
30
It will also be noted that the peripheral edge of
the crown l2, in the assembly thereof with theside
wall of the container top by means of the layer of
adhesive i3, is somewhat removed from the inner
face of the ring constituting the side wall imme
diately below the ?ange 9, there being a clear
space l6 between the peripheral edge of the crown
l2 and the ring ‘I, so that no pressure is applied by
said recess being spaced from the inner edge of.
the ?ange.

3. A container topv comprising a substantially I
rigid ring member constituting a side wall of the
container top, the uppe'rzgdge thereof being turned
35
inwardly toward the axis'o the-ring‘ and'then out
wardly with the outermost .portion positioned im
no stresses or strains are possibly produced by hav-'
mediately below the inwardly turned portion, so as
to constitute a substantially flattened ?ange at
ing an inordinate pressure applied by the periph
the end of the ring, ‘a crown member for said con
such peripheral edge against the side wall. Thus,
40
of the crown member constituting the side wall of - 30
40
eral edges of the crown member against the side tainer top, the peripheral edge portions thereof
wall, such as characterize the structures of the _ being turned downwardly and outwardly so asto
prior art and which we have found objectionable constitute, a recess for receiving said ?attened
as producing a tendency of causing a loosening of ?ange, and a layer of adhesive between the lower
the joint betwen the crown member and side wall surface of said ?ange and the upper surface of the 45
peripheral edge portion of the crown member con
of the container top. By eliminating all fric
tional contact between the crown member and the stituting the bottom of said recess, the peripheral
side wall, we are enabled to produce a container edge of the crown member being spaced from the
top, at low cost, and, not being dependent upon portion of the ring immediately below said flange.
4. A container top comprising a substantially
merely frictional holding of the elements there
50 of together, the strength, sturdiness and, there
rigid ring member constituting a side wall of the
container top, the upper edge thereof being turned
fore, the life of the container is appreciably in
inwardly toward the axis of the ring and then out
creased. This is an important feature in connec
tion with boxes of the general type to which the wardly with, the outermost portion positioned im
invention relates, as such boxes are usually used mediately below the inwardly turned portion, so 55
as to constitute a substantially ?attened ?ange at
to contain commodities such as candy and pow
the end of the ring, a crown member for said con
der, which are not removed in toto from the con
tainer, but are dispensed therefrom at periodical
intervals during a period of time usually of con-_
siderable duration commensurate with the quan
60
tity of the supply, of commodity contained in the
box.-
'
While we have described a speci?c embodiment
of our invention, it is obvious that various changes
' therein, particularly in the arrangement and con
?guration of the several elements thereof, within
the ambit of the claims, may be made without de
parting from our invention.
. We claim:
