WILLIAM LINDENIVIAYER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
REFILL FOR VANITY CASES.
Application filed November 20, 1922.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM LINDEN- MAYER, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Refills for Vanity Cases, of which the following is a specification.
My invent-ion relates to toilet or vanity cases, and particularly to improvements in the refills of such cases.
As is well known, the refill of a vanity case, as generally used, embodies a plate having a plurality of pockets or chambers stamped therefrom, upon its opposite sides. These pockets receive the compacts, or rouge and powder tablets, which are glued therein. WVhen either tablet is used up, it is necessary to discard the entire refill, embodying the plate carrying both tablets. This is expensive and wasteful in many instances.
In accordance with my invention I provide a refill embodying a plate or base, which is detachably or removably mounted within the case. I removably mount a tablet or compact upon the plate, and a rouge box is also mounted upon such plate. I prefer removably mounting a rouge tablet in the rouge box, but I also contemplate removably mounting the box upon the plate with the rouge permanently secured within the box. The rouge box has a lid to close the same, to positively prevent the rouge becoming mixed with the powder. It is preferred that the powder compact or tablet have a much greater volume or size than the rouge tablet, such as from four to five times the volume of the rouge compact.
An advantage of my construction is that the powder tablet and rouge tablet are both mounted upon the same side of the refill plate, while maintained separate, and further that either tablet may be removed independently of the other, and a new tablet substituted therefor.
A further advantage of the invention is that the maximum volume of powder and rouge may be carried within the case, with the size of the powder compact much in excess of the size of the rouge compact.
An important object of the invention is to provide a device of the above mentioned character which is of simple construction,
Serial No. 602,201.
inexpensive to manufacture, convenient in use, strong and durable.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a toilet or vanity case, and the elements of the refill, with the rouge and powder puffs, all parts being separated and arranged in position to be inserted in place.
Fi ure 2 is a plan view of the complete device. I
Figure 3 is a transverse section taken on line 33 of Figure 2, and
Figure l is a similar view on line l l of Figure 2.
In the drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates the body portion of a toilet or powder case, having a cover or lid 6, provided with a. mirror 7, upon the inner side thereof. The cover is hinged to the body portion at 8, as is well known.
The refill embodying my invention embodies a refill plate or base 9, preferably formed of sheetmetal, and having openings 10 formed therein, at ap roximately diametrically opposite points, for receiving resilient headed studs 11, which are soldered or otherwise attached to the bottom of the body portion 5. The refill plate 9 is preferably substantially fiat and has the material near its center stamped out, for a pur- 'pose to be described, providing a large: opening 12.
The refill plate 9 is provided with oppo sitely arranged resilient catches of ton ues 13, preferably stamped therefrom, and which are inverted L-shaped, as shown. These tongues are adapted to engage over the edges of a base 14 of a powder compact or tablet 15. The tablet 15 is glued into or otherwise permanently secured within the base let, the base and the powder compact both constitute a tablet. When the edges of the base are thus placed under the tongues 18, a depending stud 16 secured to the bottom of the base 14, is moved into an opening .17 for forming a detachable locking engagement between the tablet or compact and the refill plate 9. The tongues 13 serve to prevent vertical displacement while the depending stud 16 prevents horizontal displacement, with respect tothe refill plate 9.
Particular attention is called to the precise shape of "the compact or tablet 15, which is more clearly illustrated in Figures 1 and 2. This tablet is the shape of a major segment of a circle. This is provided to afford a large amount of powder.
Th numeral 17 designates a rouge box, as a whole, which is preferably! formed from the metal removed in stamping the opening 1.2. The rouge box is open at its top while it has a closed bottom 18, as shown. This rouge box has its inner side straight, as shown at 19, while its outer side 20 is longitudinally curved. This rouge box carries depending extensions or strips 21, suitably formed thereon, which are adapted for insertion through slots 22, the strips being then bent horizontally, as clearly shown in Figures 3 and 4. This will provide a connection between the rouge box and the solid portion of the refill plate 9, which is permanent for all desired purposes, but which will afford a detachable or separable connection, if desired. The rouge box 17 has a lid or cover 23, hinged to the box at 24:, and having an end piece or lever 25 formed thereon adjacent its pivot. The cover 23 has a longitudinal depression 23 for receiving a lip stick. By depressing the lever 25 the lid 23 may be shifted to the open position. The
rouge box 17 receives and holds a rouge compact or tablet 26, preferably removably mounted therein, although I contemplate gluing or permanently securing the tablet in the rouge box and having the rougebox detachable from the plate 9. The function of the cover 23 is to prevent the rouge from becoming mixed with the powder. If de sired, this cover may be suitably engraved or otherwise ornamented.
The numeral 27 designates a powderpuff, of? general segmental shape, to be carried within the case 5 above the powder compact or tablet 15. The numeral 28 designates a rouge puff, also of general segmental shape, which may be mounted upon the cover 23 of the rouge box.
In View of the foregoing description it will be seen that the user purchases the refill, originally embodying the plate 9, having a tablet or compact 15 mounted thereon, together with the rouge box 17, containing the rouge tablet 26. This refill is introduced into the casing 5 and the resilient studs 11 forced into the openings 10, thus locking the refill in the casing. Should the powder compact 15 be used up, the plate 9 will be removed from the casing 5 and such compact separated from the plate and a new powder compact substituted therefor, without in any way disturbing the rouge box or rouge tablet. Should the rouge tablet become consumed, a new tablet may be introduced into the box 17, without disturbing the powder compact. T contemplate in the majority of cases, having the rouge compact or tablet 26 removable from the box 17, and it will not be necessary to separate the box from the plate 9 in. replenishing the rouge. Should the rouge compact be glued into the box, it will of course be necessary to separate the box from the plate and substitute a new box therefor. i
It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred embodiment of my invention, and that various changes in the size, shape, and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of my invention, or the scope of the subjoined claims.
