' for carryinga powder and, a rouge compact proportioned so that they will both be used up at about the same time, a larger amount of powder being provided for. than rouge;v
In a co-pending application I have described and claimed a vanity case or box in which the box is so shaped that a larger amount of powder can be carried than rouge. In the specific construction shown 111' this co-pending application the powder and rouge are carried in what is therein termed a refill" holder, the holder having powder and rouge compartments which is removable from the box when the powder and rouge have been depleted anda filled holder substituted therefor, the user keeping the box itself. V V
The espcialobject of the present nvention is to. provide an improved vanity box structure in which a larger, amount of powdr than rouge maybe carried in compact form, but in which the powder compact and the rouge compact are removably held in the box itself, a separate refill holder being dispensed with.- r
Aiurther-object of the invention is to produce such a box which shall be of attractive appearance, and which 'Wlll be cheap to construct, and in which the powder and rouge compacts can be easily changed when depleted or for any desired reason. 1..
lVith these and otherlobject-s not specifically referred to inview, the invention consists" in certain novel parts, arrangements and combinations, which will be fully described in connection with the accompanying drawing which shows a preferred form of the invention, and the novel features then pointed out in the claims hereunto annexed.
In these drawings- I V I Figure 1 is a top view of the improved box shown with the cover open. Figure 2 is a central vertical sectional view of the structure shown in Fig. 1, the cover being illustrated as closed.
Figure 3 is a detail sectional view through the powder compartment,- the section being taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 2.
Figure 4 is .a partlysectional view, the
section being taken on line 44: of Fig. 2.- I Figure 5 is a partial top view of the-lower part'oif the construction shown in F ig'. 1, the 0 cover ofthe rouge compartment being illustrated as open. a
Figure 6 is a perspective view of; the
partition member for separating tlie 'buge' andpowder compacts, and provided with a cover for the rouge compact. H
Referring now to these drawings in detail, the improved box includes a bottom 1 provided witlr an upturned peripheral flange 2, this peripheral flange at its upper edge bei-ng inset,-as indicatedflat 3, forming n, ex r o h er. an! nte i shoulder or rib 5, hereinafter referrecLtd. Associated with this bottom is a covert provided with a depending peripheral flange 7, and this cover m ay, secured therei I by a, rim 9-, though this mirror may be omitted, The cover 6 is, in-;th e best constructions, pivotal ly associated with-theb'ottom 1, beingas illustrated, secured thereto by a hinge l0. 7 H q 4 I a In accordance with the invention, the improved box will be capacitated to hold pow der and rouge compacts, the powder compact being of larger size than the rouge compact, and to effect this means willbe;provided for-dividing or partitioning ofl the bottom of the box into two'compartments of different sizes, these, compartments preferably 1ying side" by side *in the same plane, the box beingso shaped as to provide the necessary dimensions fora large compartment and a smaller one. lVhile the particular shape for effecting thi'smay be somewhat varied, in the specific construction illustrated, the box is generally of an inverted .pear shape, the rouge compartment, indicated at 11, being at the small end of the box,that is, the end l'lavin'g the narrowest lateral dimensions,
ii desired, have 1 n a mirror 8' held in, place compartments. of various kinds, as shown, there 1S provided and the powder compartment 12 will be located adjacent thereto, and occupying substantially the rest of the box. I
Thebox of the present invention is particularly adapted for removably holding powder and rouge compacts, that is powder androuge in compacted form. These oompacts are indicated by the numerals 13, 14
and are, as usual, powder and rouge com-g pacted on to thin discs of suitable material, and the invention contemplates means for holding these thin discs in their respective lVhile these means may-be a circular plate .15 provided with oppositely disposed upstanding spring cars 16, these cars being arranged to be sprung under the rim or shoulder 5 of the flange 2, before re ferred to and thus aid to hold the compacts in place so that they are not accidentally dislodged from the box but at the same time.
are readily removable therefrom when desired, 4
Each powder androuge compact is preferably covered by a suitable puff, indicated by the numerals 17,18 in Fig. 2. These puffs lie on top of the powder and rouge compacts.
- The powder and rouge compartments are divided by apartition which may,if desired, be permanentl disposed in the box, this partition separating the rouge and powder compacts. v
In the structure embodying the best form of the invention, the rouge compartment will be provided'with a cover, and in the yention is that illustrated.
This surface 21 is'provided with legs 22,
these legs being provided preferably on each side of the wall'20 and being formed by striking down the metal of the plate. Between these legs 22 the plate is cut away to form oppositely disposed recesses 23, 24,
. these recesses, in the particular instance illustrated, beingfcurved to correspond in tion member.
various ways, villustrated, the plate is formed with a de.
' portion 25 (see Fig. 2) adjacent;
' pressed the wall 20, and thisdepressed portion 25 shape with the circular powder compacts, these recesses permitting the powder compacts to be'insertedin their compartments.
As before stated, the rouge'compartment is preferably provided with a cover, which :cover'ispivotally associated with the parti- NVhile this maybe effected in in the particular construction is capacitated to receive and forms a bear the hinge pin 26 passing through back of the cover ing for a loop 27 formed on the member 28. I
The partition member may be held in place by the edges 29 of the plate engaging under the shoulder 5 of theflange'2 .on the bottom of the box. stances, however, it may be desirable to provide means for more or less permanently holding the partition in place. Where such is desired, a pair of projections 30 may be provided on the bottom of the box and the wall 20 may be forced behind these projections, that is, toward the small end of the box, as shown in Fig. 2. These projections,
together with the edges 29 catching under he shoulder 5 act to firmly hold the partition in place, the wall 20 and legs22 taking. against the bottom of'the box producing a rigid structure, which effectively separates ther powder and rouge compartments.
gages telescopically with the inset portion 3 of the flange 2, and when the parts are: in closed position seats againstthe shoulder 4. This frictional engagement is usually suflicient to hold the parts closed. 'If desired, however, a nub catch, 31 of the usual character may be used for holding the cover in closed position relatively to the bottom .of the box. 7 r
While the invention has been described and illustrated in what is believed to be its best'form, it will be understood that various changes and variations may be made in the specific structure disclosed, both as to form of the box and partition member without departing "from'the invention as defined in the claims appended hereto.
lVhat I claim is z 1 1. A box for holding toilet accessories comprising bottom and cover members, wider at one end than the other the bottonrmemher being divided by a partition into powder and rouge compartments lying side by side Under some circumflange 7 ofthe cover of the box enin substantially the same horizontal plane, 1
the powder compartment being of greater dimensions than the rouge compartment, the two compartments being of substantially the area of the bottom member and means cooperating with the sides of the box for holding powder and rouge compacts in the com partments.

A. box; for holdingtoilet accessories com prising bottom and cover'members, a partit1on member removablyfsecured in the bottom and dividing the bottom into powder and rouge compartments, the powder com- 'partment being of greater'dimensions than the rouge compartment, a cover pivotally as sociated with the partition and covering one of the compartments. V
3. A box for holding toilet accessories comprising a bottom and a cover associated therewith, a partition member located in the bottom member and dividing the member into powder and rouge compartments of different sizes, and an inner cover pivotally associated with the partition and covering one of the compartments.
