Classification: 229/100


(under the class definition) Subject matter comprising a receptacle made from material similar in composition to paper but thicker and stiffer in character, the receptacle having a

bottom portion for supporting content, peripheral wall structure for at least partially surrounding the content, and an access opening for the insertion or removal of content.

(1) Note. A box of cellulosic or resinous material (e.g., plastic) which and is similar in character to paperboard which is manipulated in the same manner as paperboard (e.g., folded from a blank) is included here. Class 220, Receptacles, takes receptacles not provided for elsewhere.

(2) Note. The bottom portion of the box may consist of a planar wall, or may have any shape (e.g., flat, curved, inverted pyramid, etc.) or construction (e.g., reinforced, hollow wall, etc.).

(3) Note. The peripheral wall structure may be formed from a series of planar side walls (e.g., a cylindrical box), or any combination of planar and curved side walls.

(4) Note. The box may or may not have a top wall.

(5) Note. An access opening is an opening which is used for the insertion or removal of contents and may be either open or closed. Normally, the access opening is at the top of the box or located in the wall (if the box has one), but it may be located in the peripheral side wall or the bottom wall.

(6) Note. The paperboard may vary in thickness and rigidity according to the purpose for which it is to be used. In any event, it must be rigid enough that a box made from it is self-sustaining, i.e., it is capable of maintaining its content-holding configuration without the use of external props or supports. (7) Note. The paperboard may be combined with one or more layers of other materials. [figure]
