wall 17 to de?ne an article or handkerchief feeding open,

My invention relates to receptacles and more particu
larly to receptacles for the packaging of such articles as
paper handkerchiefs and the like.
One of the objects of my invention is to provide a re
ceptacle from which paper handkerchiefs and the like
may be dispensed and which receptacle is provided with
‘facilities for the storing of the handkerchiefs after use.
Another object of my invention is to provide a recep
pivoted or hinged, by the score or hinge line 22, to the
upper end of the rear wall 17 for uncovering the open
ing 26. The lid 27, which initially closes the opening '26,
10 is pivoted to an open position upon puncturing of the
zones to permit access to the receptacle through the
opening 26. The lid 27 is fashioned with a circular
knook~out disc 28 by means of perforations 29 to form,
when the disc is removed, an opening 30 for receiving
tacle of the foregoing described character equipped with 15 therethrough a suitable supporting member 31, for in
a pair of compartments for the stocking of handkerchiefs
for dispensing and the storing of used handkerchiefs for
subsequent disposal, respectively, and the latter compart
ment being capable of progressive expansion to accord
with the depletion of the handkerchiefs from the ?rst
mentioned compartment.
An important object of my invention is to provide a
stance, a knob disposed within the passenger compart
ment of a motor vehicle and ‘from which member the re
ceptacle may be suspended ‘for use.
To facilitate forming of the receptacle to accord with
the foregoing described construction, the blank B, from
which the receptacle 15 is formed, is fabricated in a man
ner wherein each of the end walls 18 comprises lower
