It is another object of the invention to provide
inwardly projecting tabs at the corners of the 55

the side portions»1 l1 from:turning-downwardly:
and outwardly.
In this arrangement, the corner tab portions
extend inwardly directly toward the center of the
container sonas partially to divide the container
into similar and equal compartments or sections.
Each of the corner tab arrangements provides in
elïect a blind opening into the container, open
outwardly at the face of the container so as to
permit a cutting blade readily to be inserted for
dividing the container into sections. For expe
diting the separation of the container into its
several sections, the panel portion I 6 is weakened
by lines of perforations 20 from corner to corner
the containerl serving to indicate the division of
the container into sections and the division of the
pie into portions of the usual conventional shape.
In the arrangement shown, each portion of the
pie is provided with a decoration 3E of any suit
able type, with the separate elements of the deco
ration similarly arranged on the several portions
of the pie, the operator being able .to arrange the
decoration vin this manner by reference to the
straight sides of the container. By reason of the
use of this type of container, a waiter in a res
of the container, being represented in the draw

formed integrally with the panel portion 22, with
the side wall portions completely separate from

With the container in the condition as shown
in Fig. 1 or Fig. 6, such products as cheese or ice
cream may be placed therein, being packed be
tween the inwardly directed corner tabs so that
such tabs may partially divide the contents of the
container into sections. The container may be
filled with eggs for freezing, or with hot products 60
in liquid form adapted to harden when cooling,
such as fudge, or gelatine, such products being
adapted to distribute themselves evenly in the
several sections of the container.
In the arrangement shown in Fig. 7, I have.
pro-vided an equiangular, equilateral container of
hexagonal form with the sides flared upwardly,
the container shown being formed of glass. This
