4 Claims.
The invention relates to displaylboxes and has
as an object an improvement in boxes to be used
both for display and packaging.
Further objects of the invention are to pro
5 vide a box which will have great rigidity both in
display and in closed position: to provide a box
which when folded to display position will present
no recesses at its exterior: to provide a box hav
ing, in display position, a surface lying at an .end
10 of the box providing a space for identifying or ad
vertising matter, which space will be positioned
at“ an end of the closed box so that said matter
will be disclosed when the box is stacked.
Further objects will appear from the following

As shown in Figure 1, the blank comprises body
portions . ID to i8 inclusive and combined cover
and easel forming members i8 to 2'l‘incluslve.
The portion ill forms the bottom of the box,
the portions ii and i2 the respective ends, and
35 the portions i3 and i4 the respective sides. The
dot and dash lines on the blank represent lines
of scoring, and the solid lines the location of cuts
entirely through the material.
The' portion 21 is folded along the line 41
so that portion 21 is ‘in surface contact with por
tion 20, and the free edge of 21 is tucked under
tab 48.

junction line of portions 20 and 25 where folded.
When folded to the position described the ex
posed surface, of portion 20 and the back edges
of leg portions 56, 51 are in substantially vertical
position and the upper exposed surface of portion 25
25 is substantially level when the box sits on a
level surfaoe._ As shown by Figure 5 the level por
tion referred to is made up largely of four thick- I
nesses-of material and is supported at all four
margins,'thus providing a strong rigid platform 30
upon which may be placed any suitable display
card holding standard, and any desired identify
ing labelmay be secured thereon.
The widths of portions i3, 20 and 25 preferably
are such as to,represent the members of’ a right 35
angled triangle, the portion [9 being the hypothe
nuse, the portion 20 the altitude and the combined
portions 25 and 26 the base of the triangle. Fur
thermore the combined widths of the portions i9
and 20 equal the lengths of the bottom portion 40

55 tudinal edges of portions 23, 24 tobring the junc
label carried by the outer surface of portion 25
will be exposed at an end of the box and will
be visible when stacked with other boxes.
The members 60, 6| may be folded to frame the
opening of the box and may serve to retain a
fancy or transparent covering for the contents
of the box in open or displaying position.
Figure 6 shows a position of use of the box in
display which is at present preferred for some
10 purposes, for the reason that the weight of the
box at the rear is not borne by the legs 56, 51
in their position which is shown in Figure 4. In
the position of Figure 6 a considerable proportion
of the weight falls upon the triangle |9--26 which
is amply strong for the service. Furthermore,
the weight of the last few articles in a box in
the position of Figure 6 will better serve to pre
vent the box from pitching forward.
In this position, if the space 25 is utilized for
a label, it must, of course, be inverted from the
position shown in Figures 3 and 4.
It will be seen that when the box is closed the
sides and ends are formed substantially. through
out of at least two thicknesses of material, thus
offering considerable strength to resist vertical
crushing. When in position of display spreading
of the sides is resisted by the overlapping legs of
the easel and the bottom has support at the
middle of its edges by the tabs 52, 58.
Minor changes may be made in the physical
embodiment of the invention within the scope
of the appended claims without departing from
the spirit of the invention.
I claim:
1. A display box comprising in combination:
a box body including bottom, side, and end form
ing portions; an easel and cover forming member
hinged to the upper edge of one of the end form
ing portions and comprising a narrow portion
extending in a plane at an obtuse angle to said
upper edge, a portion extending at a right angle
from said narrow portion substantially to the
lower edge of the end of the box to which said
member is hinged and side members hinged to
said right angle extending portion lapping the
sides of the box and projecting from said narrow
portion to form legs of the easel.
2. The combination of claim 1 with tabs pro
Jecting at a free end edge of said side lapping
portions and insertable into slots at the bottom
side edges of the box portion to hold the easel
member in position.
3. A display box comprising in combination:
a box body including a bottom, sides, and ends ;
a cover portion hinged to the uper edge of one
of said ends and including a portion having said
hinge at one “edge thereof and a second portion
hinged to the remaining edge thereof, the com
bined widths of saidhinged portions being equal 10
to the length of said body; a ledge forming mem
ber hinged to the said second portion at its edge
opposite the ?rst named hinge thereof; the ?rst
named hinged portion equal in width to an end
of the box and to the hypotenuse of a right
angled triangle of which the said second portion
is the altitude and the ledge portion is the base;
a pair of easel members hinged at their edges
to the end edges of said second portion; a tab
at the edge of the ledge portion to enter a slit 20
in the first named hinge and the tabs carried
by the easel members to enter respective slits in
the box sides in display card box covering posi
tions of the cover members.
4. A display box comprising in combination: 25
a box body comprising bottom and side members;
means to support said body in display position
including a part hinged to the upper edge of one
of said side members, substantially equal in width
thereto and folded into surface contact there 30
with, a second part hinged to said ?rst part and
in width complemental therewith to equal the
area of the open side of said body, said second
part folded to an acute angle with the ?rst part,
leg forming members hinged to opposite edges of 35
said second part and folded at right angles
thereto to lap with sides of said body, ?aps of
less width than and hinged to the respective ends
of said leg members and folded to stand at right
angles thereto and to said second part, a ledge 40
member comprising portions of equal width hinged’ /
together and to the free edge of said second part,
