Abstract (en)

The closure (1) of a closure/container combination such as a tube container (2), has a panel (5) forming a base on which the container can stand in an upright condition. A face (16) of the panel extends at an angle of between 4 DEG and 20 DEG to the normal to the longitudinal axis of the tube (2) such that when the tube is standing on a horizontal surface, the longitudinal axis is at an angle of between 4 DEG and 20 DEG to the vertical. This causes the front face (18) of the tube to be slanted slightly backwardly, making information printed thereon more easily discernible. <IMAGE>
