2 Claims. (01. 220—5)
My invention relates to containers, such as
barrels, drums and the like, and has among its
objects and advantages the provision of an im
proved knockdown container.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is a side view of a container in ac
cordance with my invention;

the manner in which the sections of the con
tainer are brought together for connection one 10

closed, the sections l2 may be nested one within
the other to provide a compact arrangement to
the end that shipping space may be reduced in
a relatively large degree.
To protect the hoop 22 when handling the ?lled
container, each section I2 is deformed to pro
vide an annular rib 28, with the joint 30 located
between the ribs. Thus the container may be
rolled without causing any damage to the joint.
In cases where the container is ?lled with ma
terial which might solidify, a plate 32 is arranged
between the ?anges l6 so as to provide a divid
ing wall in the plane of the line of separation
between the sections, thereby facilitating sep
