This invention relates to packages or contain
ers for articles, and more particularly to pack
ages for handset telephones.
'
‘
‘
An object of this invention is the provision of
5 a simple and economical package for holding and
shipping articles wherein they may be securely
held and positioned relative to each other and
the package in such a way that damage toand
cha?ng tending to mar the surface ?nish of the
10 articles are substantially eliminated.
'
In accordance with the above object, the present ,
invention contemplates in one‘ embodiment there
of as applied to the packaging of handset tele
phones comprising _a receiver and transmitter
15 unit and a stand, a container carrying an appro
priately shaped insert or‘separator formed from
corrugated ?bre board. The stand rests on the
bottom wall of the container, and spanning the
stand is the separator, upon which is mounted
20 the receiver and transmitter unit, the lower end
edges of the separator resting on the bottom con-‘
tainer wall and the under surface of its upper
wall, engaging spaced upper points of the stand.
Formed on the separator at each of its four lower
25 corners are integral extensions interposed be
tween the adjacent inner surfaces of the con
tainer and the sides of the stand which serve to
hold the stand away from the container side
walls, thus preventing friction tending to mar the
30 ?nish of the stand.
,
Other objects and advantages of this inven
tion will more fully appear from the following
detailed description, taken in connection with the
accompanying drawing, in which

bodying the features of this invention for hold
ing a handset telephone, indicated in broken out
line;

sioned container for-enclosing the telephone is
indicated at ‘I9 constructed in any usual and well
known manner from any convenient material,‘
such as, for example, corrugated ?bre board'or
like materials.

‘
In Fig; 4 is shown a blank for an insert or sep
arator'2B which may be ~sheared orv punched, for '
example, from corrugated ?bre board or like. ma
terials. The, blank separator 20 is formed with 10 J
transverse creasing'or folding lines 23, indicated
by broken lines, the blank being folded upon these
lines when it is inserte'd'in the container I9 where‘
in it assumes the positionclearly shown in Figs.
2 and 3 with its lower edges resting on the bottom 15
wall of the container at opposite ends thereof, its
opposite longitudinal edges abutting the opposite‘ _
side wall of the container with a slip ?t.
The separator 20 (Fig. 4) is sheared during the
blanking thereof, as indicated at 24 and'formed 20
with longitudinal fold lines 25, which provide por
tions 26, which are struck down when the separa
tor is inserted in the container leaving an elong-V
sted opening 2'! for receiving and positioning a
central portion of the handle l3 of the'receiver 25
and transmitter unit,‘as shown particularly in
Fig. 2. Also formed in the separator 20 during
the blanking‘thereof is a ?nger hole 30 tofacili
tate the removal of ther'separator when unpack
ing the container, and at one end thereis formed 30'
a semi-circular slot 3| through which the. con
ductor cords l1 interconnecting the telephone
stand l4 and the receiver and transmitter unit
extends when the handset telephone is packaged,
as shown in Fig. 1. Integrally formed on oppo
site longitudinal edges of the separator 20, dur
ing the blanking thereof, at'each of its four
corners are flaps or extensions 32 arranged to be
folded into alignment with thereferred to edges
and at right angles tothe main portion of the 40
blank upon creasing or folding lines 33, indicated

container 19 to assume the position shown where
in, referring particularly to Fig. 3, it will be noted
that an upper edge 31 of the stand 14 at the right
