Description

Ma'mh 1931. w. FRIED MAN TOILET ACCESSORY Filed July 31. 1929 Z Qnb'emtoz William Friedman of dispensing retainer; and
Patented Mar. 3, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE WILLIAM FRIEDMAN, or NEW YORK, 11. Y., AssIGNoR T L PE, INCL, or NEW YORK;
1v. 'Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK TOILET ACCESSORY Application filed July 31, [1929. Serial Naasasm This invention'relates to toilet accessories, and more particularly to devices which are carried by women and are commonly used to carry make-up material such as face powder,
and are generally known'as vanity boxes.
The objects of the invention are to provide an improved container of this sort which is adapted to be used with loose pow'deras distinguished from a powder compact; to
enable the powder to be securely retained against inadvertentspilling or loss; to provide an effective seal between parts of the" dispensinghretainer to employ the positive sealing effect of'an edge against a surface; 15. to secure immediate as well as positive closure of the container when the sifting parts are released by the user; to thus obtain the same simplicity, ease of useand non-spilling characteristics of powder compacts in addi- 9 tion to all of the advantages of loose powder; to enable the device to be stamped from sheet metal; to characterize the construction and operation by simplicity throughout; and to obtain other advantages and results as may be brought out in the following description. Referrin to the accompanying drawing in which lilie numerals of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views;
' Figurel is a plan of an opentoilet accessory embodylng my inventlon;
Figure 2 1s a transverse sectlonal v ew 0 =the same'with the parts of the dispensing retainer in norm'al or closedand sealed posi? tion;

V Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view showing a modified construction of dispensing retainer;
parts of the dispensing retainer de- Figurefi is a plan slmilar to Fig. 1 with a modified construction of dispensing re- 'tainer';
Figures 6 and 7 are sectional views showing closed andopen positions of this type Figure 8 is a sectionalview of a further a modified construction showing an auxiliary illustrated ,in said drawing,'the reference "numeral'l indicates the body or boxportion of the toilet accessory, this box or body portion being adapted to receive a make-upmaterial in powder form. Preferably, asshown,
I providean outer cover 2, and, closing-the usual opening 3 of the box, but adapted to be enclosed also by said outer cover, is aninner cover whichI prefer to call a dispensing retainer 4. Both the cover and the retainer-arev preferably'hinged, as at 5 and 6 respectively, to the body, so they may be opened independently of each other,-and have suitable snap fastener 'ineans as usual for retaining them releasably closed. The'dispensing retainer is intended to be opened only for such purposes as inspection and'filling ofbox 1,
the retainer having means for passing the powder therethrough.
The dispensing retainer 4, forming sential part of the present invention, is of such nature that it is'normally closed to pre- 7 vent escape or spilling of the powder from box 1, but has aconstruction enabling it to automatically permit escape. of a limited amount of powder when properly manipulated as by rubbing or tapping. The'open ings through which the powder thus escapes,
nevertheless, will close as soon as pressureis removed. It 'is" animportant feature,- also of this invention, to seal the parts ofthis disan espensing retainer when in normal .position so I as to not permit powderto leakpast the-clodescribed separately.
. sure; Several ways-of accomplishing-these features have been illustrated and will be" Figures 1,. 2 and?) more particularlyfltwill i be observed that the dispensing retainer 41 iscomposed of an upper resilient sifter plate 7 below which is juxtaposed'a closure fplate 8. 1
that theplate may befiexed out of its own Preferably thesifter plate 7 is stampedfrom a single p'iece of material of suitable character, and has one; or more slotsj9 therein such v y plane and the crevice formed by the slot temmaterial, however, will return the depressed porarily increased in size. Resiliency 'of'the ice removed. According to the present showing, the plate is provided with several slots 9which are curvilinear, and shown herein as spiral. The outer edge or rim of t iis resilient plate is shaped both to fit the opening 3 or the box and to-receive or mount a sealing means. As shown the sa1d;r1m-1s bent 'upwardlyffrom the plane of the plate and then curled down- L 1 i u wardly at its outer edge thereoy establish? mg a downwardly open-annular pool-rot 10. WV1th1n this pocket I secure a sealingm-aterlal, such as cotton 11.
The closure plate Sis preterablyheld at'its centerby a rivet 12 to'v the upperor dispensing plate 7, and extends radially far enough so that its periphery directly underliesthe peripheral pocket 10 of the dispenslng plate. The peripheral edge margin of said closure plate is uptu-rnedyas at 18, so the edge of-the inaterialwill engage the sealing-material in V pocketlO and thereby obtain an edge-to-sur a a eat their midd P t o face; contact orseal. Obviously this construction resultsin a pos tive sealing of the parts against leakage of powder therebetween when closed, but perlnits-or" free passage of powder 7 when. the resillent plate is depressedin a man- ;ner to create a gap between the peripheries of the plates. 7 v
' It3is to be understood that an edge-to-surface seal-between partsof a dispensing retaine r may besecured in other ways than the specific illustration justdeseribed. For instance, I have illustrated in Figure 4 a modified construction of seal. Therein I have shown a dispensing plate l l having an annular shoulder 15 at the outer part ofthe ,plate. A closure plate 16 is riveted as at .17 to this dispensing plate 1 the closure platehaving its peripheral edge turned up, :asat 18, with the parts positioned and proportioned so that the said shoulder 15 and closure edge 18 telescopically engage giving an edge-to-surface contact when the parts are closed. V
"Furthermore, it is not tobe understood :that the plates forming the dispensing retainerare of necessity arranged with the dispensingplate-uppermost. As shown in ures5, 6 and 7', the dispensing plate 19, with its curvillnear slots 20 may i be positioned under a closureplate21. In'this instance, :the elosureplate is secured at its periphery to the'dispensing plate, said plates being seping an fedg'e to-surface. seal between these .plates l[ providea centralaperture 22in the .gclosureplate .overlyinga portion of the dispensingplatewhich isnot slotted. The un slotted portion of said dispensing plateljust mentioned is preferably otl's-etasat 23-, so as ito project-into said aperture-22,-the parts *being'so proportioned that the edge-of the apertureengages thesurfaeeof the dispens- Y 'ing plate where ofl'set, as a result of which For effectleakage between the plates when closed is prevented.
I have shown in Figure 8 a construction somewhat similar to the construction just shown and described in connection with Figures 5, 6 and 'Z, in that Iprovide herein an upper closure plate 25' and a dispensing plate .26 therebeneath. In this instance, however,
I preferably make the closure plate 25 somewhat concave so that its outer margin is spaced from the margin of the dispensing plate thereby providing a reservoir" 27 between the plates for retaining a small supplyofprmrder lifted by the dispensing plate and not yet passed out through the central 0 opening 28 inthe closure plate. It is to be noted in this construction that I prefer to provide an under closure plate 29;which will lie fiatwise under"dispensingplate similar'to tne construction of Figures 1 to l. This under plate will assist in obtaining a large supply .of powderthrough the dispensing plate into the reservoir 27, so that a'supply of powder 13 always available to immedlatelyenter upon the middle part of the dispensingplate upon depression ofthe S &111G.""'Tl16 edgexto serve as a seal in this construction isobtained by light of the prior art.
Havmg thus described my invention, 1' claim 1 r 1. In a device of the character;described, a dispensing retainerv comprising plates adaptedto be separated forpassage o f pow- :der, sid plates being" arrangeduto:closeito gether and form -atight closure by: an edgeto-surface contact therebetween.
