DESIGN FOR CIGAR-BOXES.
Specification forming part of Design No. [0,871, dated October 15, 1878; application filed October 3, 1878. [Term of patent 7 years] 5 Jo all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, MICHAEL I. WELLER and GEORGE E. REPETTI, (a firm doing busi ness under the name of eller 8: Itepetth) of Washington, District of Columbia, have originated and invented a new and useful Design for Cigar and other Boxes; and we do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification.
The nature of our design consists-in a box formed in the shape of a block figure 5. That part of the box represented by the upper half of the figure is composed of two rectangular sections, to b, joined by another rectangular section, 0, at right angles thereto. The lower half of the figure is formed of vertical and horizontal sect-ions d c, joined to the upper half and to each other by the trapezoidal sectionsg h, the section 0 being terminated by a similar trapezoidal section, 1', from which extends a Vertical section, k.
1 The object of our design is to furnish to the trade a peculiarly-shaped box, which may be adapted not alone to cigars, but to all kinds of merchandise suitable to be packed therein, and is constructed of any suitable material or a combination of materials.
Figure 1 represents a perspective View of our box with the lid closed, and Fig. 2 a perspective View with the lid thrown back.
The letter A represents a box which is constructed in the shape of a figure 5, forming, by partitions, interior subdivisions or smaller boxes, (the partitions may be left out,) which are made to correspond in size to the cigars or other articles convenient to be packed therein.
The letter B represents the cover. The dotted lines represent the partitions, and C arin g by which the box may be suspended.
The design forms quite a unique and strik ing shape for the purpose of exposing cigars and other articles in the show windows and cases, and for other purposes.
We claim as our invention- A design for a box, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we aifix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
MICHAEL I. WELLER. GEORGE It. REPETTI.
