De Luxe Paper Boxes for Fine Confections.

Practically all of the larger confectioners are using de luxe paper boxes for their highest grades of products, and the majority of the smaller manufacturing confectioners are also using boxes of this class for the convenience of their retail trade.

We refer to beautiful art boxes, of various odd shapes, and made in two-, three- and five-pound sizes. The shapes include round, oval, hexagon, octagon, heart and diamond.

Boxes of this variety are packed by the larger candy manufacturers and are then shipped to jobbers and retailers. The smaller manufacturing confectioners, who operate their own retail stores in addition to selling goods wholesale, generally use the de luxe boxes as calls for them come in their stores. The empty boxes are kept in cabinets and show cases, and whenever an order is received for a special gift occasion, one of the art boxes is selected and is filled with fresh sweets. The buyer pays an extra sum, over the regular price of the candy, for the box.

The de luxe boxes make exceedingly attractive window and store displays for confectioners and are appropriate for numerous gift occasions in addition to the great holidays of Christmas, New Year, St. Valentine's Day, Easter and Thanksgiving Day.

Some of the leading paper box manufacturers, who specialize in the production of de luxe candy boxes, have quantities of popular numbers made up during slack periods in their factories, and have them put into stock ready for immediate delivery as orders come.

There is a steady demand from the confectionery trade for the finest kinds of art boxes, principally in the two-Candy Box. Round, shouldered, dome top, extension top and bottom, three gold trims. Covered with lithographed paper having a beautiful all-over pattern of flowers in colors. (By Jesse Jones Paper Box Co., Philadelphia, Pa.)

The writer recently enjoyed the privilege of visiting the plant of a nationally-known paper box manufacturing concern that is making a specialty of fine candy boxes.

Several departments of this plant are devoted exclusively to the production of de luxe candy boxes, and the writer spent considerable time in these departments where he saw the actual processes of making art boxes of many different varieties.

Among the most beautiful numbers were the following: No. 1. Three-pound square with round corners: shouldered: dome top; three gold rims. Covered with lithographed paper picturing flowers in beautiful colors.

Extension top and bottom. No. 2. Three-pound heart-shape; shouldered; dome top: extension top and bottom gold trimmed. Covered with lithographed paper illustrating orchids in natural colors.

No. 3. Two-pound oblong; telescope type: extension top and bottom; padded top; covered with fancy lithographed and embossed paper. Beautiful medallion in rich colors and gold attached to the top of the lid.
