T.J. REGAN. I TOILET POWDER CONTAINER.

FILED DEC. 18. 1920.

Patented Apr. 3, 1923.

THOMAS J. REGAN, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

TOILET-POWDER CONTAINER.

Application filed December 18, 1920. Serial No. 431,623.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS J. REGAN, a citizen of the United States, and resident of New York. in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in T oilet- Powder Containers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates toa toilet powder container, having particular reference to the features of construction relating to the discharging of the powder from the container.

This invention has for an object to provide a construction which combines the features of a perforated top container for shaking out the powder in small quantities, and a powder and pad box.

The invention has for a further object to provide a construction in which a pad for applying the powder may be combined with the container to prevent leakage through the mouth thereof, and in which a shallow receptacle is provided adjacent the pad into which a small amount of powder may be shaken from the main powder compartment without removing the pad from its mouth sealing position.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

Fig. 1 of the drawings is a fragmentary central vertical sectional view of a toilet powder container constructed according to the invention, showing the cap and pad in position.

Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof, with the cap and pad removed.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical section showing a modification. v

In the drawings 1 indicates a can or box forming the main compartment of the container and which may be of any usual or approved size and shape. This can is formed with an inwardly extending top element 1 which may be formed in the usual manner, this top element presenting a central opening surrounded by an upwardly projecting screw threaded neck flange 2.

Extending across the space enclosed by the neck flange 2 is a downwardly concaved partition 3 which may be localized by means of an angular peripheral flange 3" thereon which engages the annular shoulder formed at the junction of the neck flange 2 and can top 1. This partition 3 is provided with a circularly arranged series of small apertures 4: for the passage of the powder from the can 1.

The space above the partition 3 and enclosed by the, neck flange 2 forms a compartment to receive a powder pad which, when in position, acts as a sealto prevent leakage of the powder. This pad is indicated at 5 and is preferably formed of felt with a flat surface, and of a diameter to fit the container closed, by a cap 8 which screws down over the neck. When in position this cap bears against the knob 7 of the pad 5 and, as will be obvious, presses the marginal portion of the latter against the raised edge of the partition 3 and causes the pad to actas a seal to prevent leakage of the powder.

In the use of the container the latter may I be inverted and shaken, with the cap 8 and pad 5 in place, causing a small amount of powder to collect in the space between the pad 5 and partition 3 thus providing a supply sufficient for several applications to the pad while at the same time the powder may at any time be shaken directly through the apertures 4 onto the desired part.

In this improved toilet powder container, as will be apparent, a simple construction is provided in which there are combined the features of a perforated topfor shaking out small quantities of the powder, and a powder and pad box, while at the same time the pad forms an efiicient seal to prevent leakage of the powder in transporting. the container, in hand bags or the like,

In the modification shown in Fig. 3 a washer 10,. having an upwardly and outwardly flaring inner face 11, is secured in the neck flange 2, and the pad 5 fits within this washer, this construction enabling the sealing joint to be efi'ectedrby pressing the pad into the tapering neck thus formed.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to protect by Let ters Patent of the United States is as follows An article of the kind described comprising a container having a discharge neck formed with a downwardly tapered interior face, a downwardly concaved partition extending across said neck, said partition having a series of apertures formed therein a powder pad adapted to be carried in the neck of the container above the said partition and spaced from the depressed portion thereof and provide a seal preventing leakage of? the powder from the container, and a cap secured upon the neck of the container and bearing against the said pad to hold the same in sealing engagement with its cooperating part.

Signed at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 23rd day ot'Novei nber A. D. 1920.

THOMAS J. REGAN.
