One of the important objects of this invention
is to provide an article container and stand
10 which shall be particularly adapted for use with
pies, cakes or the like, whereby the same will be
preserved in a satisfactory manner for proper‘
delivery to the ultimate consumer while at the‘
same time, the article is continually kept in an
15 attractive and palatable state.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a display stand and container for pies, cakes
or the like which shall be economical to manu
iacture, simple bf construction, easy of applica
tion, and which will positively_support the pie
or other article during handling, and which
moreover shall be capable of ready and instant
removal whenever desired.

inner ends of the tabs l6 and 18 upon the sheet
of transparent material 24 as doubled over about
the edges of the pie plate 20 will securely retain
all parts of the device in desired assembled re
lationship and positively prevent the pie 22 from
falling out of the plate even though the container -
be accidentally dropped oreven turned upside
down. A certain amount of strength is inherent

board, metal or other material whereby the edges

entire product will be securely protected against
ticularly food products such as pies and cakes,
and which may be made economically and simply

proper ventilation of hot pics Or other products

The pie 34 in the plate 26 is likewise covered

In Figures 4 to 7 inclusive is shown a modi?ed
form of the invention wherein a pie plate 26
has its outer edge or periphery formed with a
series of integral projections or the like 28 which
may be of any desired number, preferably from
four to ten. These projections are adapted to
with a transparent ‘sheet of some cellulose ma
terial or the like 36, and the edges of this sheet
extending around the edges of the projections
28 will be securely clamped between these pro
jections and the edges of the corresponding slots
30 as best shown in Figure 4 when the device
is assembled.
This assembly, as in the case of
the other modi?cations, simply consists of push
ing the band 32, which is formed into a circular
or other corresponding shape, down over the
edges of the pie plate or similar container,
whereby the projections 28 will be slightly dis
placed or bent downwardly until such time as
they come into alignment with the slots 30,
