article’s relative location within the carton is determined
by interior packing which keeps the article spaced from
the walls of the carton, thereby preventing the article
from being damaged during shipment. To display the
article it is necessary for the retailer to remove the in
terior packing and then the article. In repacking the
article after it has been displayed it is necessary to repeat
the foregoing procedure in reverse order.
Our invention relates to a display shipper having a novel
display base. The display base of our package serves both
as a pedestal for displaying the article and also serves to
con?ne the lower end of the article during shipment.
The package of our invention is easily opened, and im
mediately upon opening, the article is ready to be dis
played on its own individual display base.
Accordingly, it is an important object of our invention
to provide a novel, improved display shipper of simple
design and construction.
Another important object of our invention is to provide
a display shipper having a novel base portion which
serves both as a display base and also as interior packing.

46 foldably attachedthereto. The secondary locating
panel 46 is folded to overlie, in parallel relationship, the
primary panel 41. A second upstanding flap 47 is fold

strict its upward movement by abutting against the closure
?aps 34 of the sleeve in a manner to be described.
triangular tabs '48 are formed in the secondary panel 46
and serve to confine and restrict the uppermost point on
