FRANCIS A. FAIR-BAIRN, OF .IVION'IREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, ASSIGNOR TO PALMERS LIMITED, 013 .MONTREAL, CANADA,
VANITY CASE.
Application fi1ed .1VIay 5,
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in vanity cases, and the object of the invention is .to provide a simple-compact case for cosmetics which will be easily carried in a ladys handbag.
Another object is to provide a vanity case which will regulate the amount-of powdered cosmetic to be .used.
A further object is to provide a vanity case in which the danger of spilling the contents willbe almost eliminated.
' Astill further objectis to provide a vanity box which will be very easily refilled.
In my invention, I provide a vanity case .having a hinged cover, within which is mounted a mirror. Within the case is placed a two-piece cont-ainer one piece being in frictional engagement with the other. In the uppermost portion of the container an aperture or apertures are cut to regulate the amount of powdered cosmetic to be used. The edges of the metal surrounding said slots are turned upwardly to prevent the contents of the container from spilling over on to its uppermost surface. A powder puff is placed between the mirror in the hinged cover and the top of the powder container to seal the slots in the container when the box is closed.
In the drawings Figure 1 is a plan View of the vanity case.
Figure 2 is a sectional elevation of the case taken on the line 2-2, Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a plan view of one modification of the box shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1 is a partial sectional elevation taken on the line 4-4., Figure 1.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, 11 designates the bottom of a vanity case and 12 the cover, which is attached to the bottom by means of the hinge 13. The side of the cover when in the closed position (not shown) is adapted to frictionally engage with the outer surface of the wall of the box or bottom 11. Any of the well known spring gripping means may be used for holding the case in the closed position until released by the operator. A mirror 11 is mounted in the cover and is held in position by means of a ring 15, which engages with the hinge attaching means 16. Within the bottom of the box is mounted a container, which is made in two parts 17 and 18. The
1825. Serial No. 28,203.
.part 18 is of dished formation having an outwardly turned flange 19 which positions said part in its assembled condition. The vertically disposed wall 20 of the part 18 frictionally engages with the .inner wall 21 of the part 17 and prevents rotation of the parts with respect to one another. The uption. The edges 25 of the metal surround ing the aperture may be turned upwardly to form a ridge to prevent powder from working through the aperture on to the uppermost surface 22. The ridge-also presses into the puff which is made of soft flexible material and forms a seal for the container.
In the modified form shown in Figure 3 a valve may be rotatably attached to the part 17 which may be provided with a plurality of small apertures 23 The edges 25 of metal surrounding said apertures may be turned upwardly to form ridges which press into the powder puff to seal the container when the vanity case is in the closed position, and the valve inadvertently left open. The edge 26 of the valve is bent downwardly to hold the lower surface of the valve in line with the upper edges of the ridges. The valve is so positioned that it may be turned to cover one or all of the apertures according to the requirements of the operator. 7
When the case is opened a certain amount of powder is deposited on the surface of the powder puff, and this is regulated by the size and shape of the aperture. In the form shown in Figure 3 the amount of powder deposited on the puff may be regulated by the position of the valve which may be turned to close some of the apertures if desired. The ridges around the apertures form a splendid sealing means by being pressed into the puff when the vanity case is in the closed position. The ridges also prevent the powder from spilling over on to the uppermost surface of the container. When the container is empty, a spare closed box having a portion of similar shape and size as the bot-tom or lower part 17 may be used, said part being placed in the bottom of the vanity case and the old plate having its edge portion turned upwardly and outwardly to provide, respectively, a
marginal flange adapted to lit snugly within said marginal wall and a continuous supporting ledge terminating said flange and disposed at right angles thereto so as to engage the upper edge of said marginal wall to thereby support the cover plate in spaced relation to the bottom wall of the holder and below the upperedge of said marginal Wall.
2. A cosmetic holder having a cover provided with a plurality of slots each bounded by'an upwardly extending marginal ridge and a valve pivoted to the cover to engage the uppermost edges ofthe several ridges, the ridge engaging portion of the valve being spaced from the cover a distance approximating theheight of said ridges.
3. A cosmetic holder having a cover provided with a plurality of slots, each bounded by an upwardly extending marginal ridge,
a valve plate pivoted to the cover and arranged toengage the uppermost edge of the ridge, said plate having means projecting therefrom and engaging the cover to space the ridge engaging portion of the plate away from the cover a distance approximating the height of said ridges.
4. A cosmetic holder having a cover provided with a slot bounded by an upwardly projecting marginal ridge, a valve plate pivoted to the cover and arranged to frictionally engage the uppermost edge of the ridge, edge portions of the valve plate being inwardly flanged to engage the cover and thereby space the ridge engaging portions of the plate away from the cover a distance approximating the height of said ridge.
5. A cosmetic holder comprising a bottom wall, a marginal wall extending upwardly from the bottom wall and a perforated closure plate having its marginal edge turned upwardly and outwardly to form, respectively, a marginal flange adapted to fit snugly within said marginal wall and a continuous supporting ledge terminating said flange and disposed at right angles thereto so as to engage the upper edge of said marginal wall to thereby support the cover plate in spaced relation to the bottom wall of the holder and below the upper edge of said marginal wall.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand.
