April 4, 1933. w. FRIEDMAN CONTAINER Filed Nov. 1'7, 192'! INVENTOR WzZZz'am Fzedman Patented Apr. 4, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT? OFFICE WILLIAM FRIEDMAN, or NEW roan, N. Y., ASSIGNOR T mm, mm, or vnw YORK N. Y., A CORPORATION or NEWYORK I commune Application filed November 17,1927; 7 Serial no. 233,784.
This invention relates to containers, and more particularly to containers such as carried by women and are commonly termed vanity boxes for holding a make-up mate: rial, such as face powder. a i
The objects of the invention are to provide an improved container of this sort which is adapted to use with loose powder as distinguished from a powder compact; to enable the powder to be securely retained against inadvertent spilling or loss; to'provide for very easy application of some of the powder to a powder puff to secure immediate closure of the container upon removal of the powder puff or the like; to thus obtain a container for loose powder having means for readily dispensing the powder similar to the operation ofobtaining powder from the present day compact; toenable the container to be used either-in this manner like a compact or as the usual loose powder containers are now used; to provide a container which may be repeatedly refilled; to secure simplicity of construction and operationyand to obtain other'advantages and results as may be brought out in the following description. g 1
Referring to the accompanying drawing in which like numerals of reference indicate similarparts throughout the several views: 7 Figure -1 is a plan of-a loose powder container constructed in accordance with my invention;
Figure 2 is asectional view thereof on line 2-2; J Figure 3 is a similar sectional view showing. the dispensing retainer raised, as for filling the container; V Figuret is a similar sectional view showing the mode of operation in applying powder to a puff; a
Figure 5 is an exaggerated view of a centralportion of the dispensing retainer; and k Figures :6, 7 and=8 are exaggerated views of several forms of'cross-sectional constructions of retainer segments. e
In the specific embodiment of the invention illustrated in'said drawing, the reference numerall indicates the body or box portion of a vanity or:container, this box or body portion being adapted to receive a make-up material in powderform. It has been common practice heretofore to provide a pair of covers for such a box,one covering the vother when closed and the outer one having a reflecting surface, Room enough is left between the covers for receivingfand carrying a powder puff and sometimes other articles. When such a construction is used, o
theouter coveris opened, the powder pufi' removed, and then the other or inner cover is opened and the powder pufi' dipped into the powder. There is accordingly danger of the powder spilling or blowing, excessive amounts ofpowder are used, and the devices have proved so 'unsatisfactorythat women 1 have shown a marked preference for the powder compacts, that is, powder in cake form.
In the present invention, I provide an outer cover 2, and, closing the usual opening 3 of the box but adapted to be enclosed also by said outer cover 2, is an inner cover which I' prefer to call a'jdispensing retainer 4.
Both the cover and the retainer are prefer ably hinged, as at 5 and 6 respectively, to the body, so they maybe openedindependently ofeach other, andvhave suitable snap fastening means as usual-for retaining them releasably closed. The dispensing. retainer 4 is intended to be opened only forifilling thebox 1 x q 3 The dispensing retainer 4, forming anessential part of the-"presentinvention, is of v V such nature that it is normally closed'to prevent escape or spilling ofthe powder inthe 7 box 1. It is constructed," however, so'as to automatically provide forescape ofa limited amount of powder when a powder puff or the like is rubbed over the same." The openings through which the powder thus escapes, nevertheless, will close as soon as pressure is removed. Of the various ways for accomplishing this action, I have illustrated herein a retainer which is stamped or cut, between a continuous rim 7 and an integral centerpiece 8, into one or more spiral'segments 9. The material is preferably suificiently resilient to normally retain the segments in the plane of segments, at which time powder may escape so desired.
through the several crevices. Accordingly,
when a powder puff ,orthe like 10 is wiped across the retainer, with some pressure,,pow-' der will be obtained on the said powder pufi, but immediately upon removal of the pressure, the retainer will close and prevent escape of'unnecessary amounts of powder.
It is to be understood that the cross-sectional configuration of the segments 9 is not confined to the shape or proportions herein illustrated, the necessity for clearness causing the exaggeration ofdimensions and distortion of proportions. Furthermore, the segments are not necessarily stamped out ofthe same piece of materialas the rim and centerpiece, but may obviously be otherwise constructed or attached. Preferably the segmentsare two or more spirals as clearly indicted in Figuresl and 5 for obtaining better support of the centerpiece and greater assurance of a perfect closure under normal conditions; If desired, the closure between the segments may be insured with greater certainty by sloping the abutting edges one way or another. In'Figure 7 I have illustrated segments 11 in cross-section having side edges sloping with respect to the top and bottom of the segments, while in Figure 8 I'have shown the segments12 as round in cross-section, enabling the same to be constructed of wire if "It will be observed that while the device is designed and intended for securing the powdertherefrom by pressure upon the retainer, it is so constructed that the retainer may be swung open and the powder obtained directly from the box if so desired. Accordingly the device may be used any other way as best suits the desires of the user. It may be added, that in actual use of the device,
pressure on the retainer causing the sameto slnk into the box causes a pressure withinthe box resulting in the ejection of powder. Even when the powder is 'getting'low in the box, the pressure of thepowder pufi on the retainer causes air within thebox to seek escape which is through thencrevices between the segments and with thisgescape of air a quantity of powder willbe carried along also.
crevices therebetween substantially in the 'direction of depression for dispensing the powdered substances within the container.
2. A container for powdered substances providing. a dispensing retainer having a centerpiece and a rim, and a plurality of spiral segments arranged close together side by side so as to normally form a closure and connected to the rim and centerpiece for supporting said centerpiece from the rim. 3. A container for powdered substances '1 having a dispensing retainer, said retainer providing a substantially fiat portion so as to be readily wiped with a powder pufi, there being a plurality of slits in said substantially flat portion ofthe retainer, said slits being so arranged as to permit depression of said retainer to create openings in said retainer. to
permit the escape of a limited amount of powder therethrough.
4. A container-for powdered substances, comprislng a closure for said container having a substantially flatsurface readily wiped with a powder puff, said closure having resilient portions adapted to be depressed and permit passage of a powdered substance to the outside of theclosure.
5. A container for powdered substances, comprising a closure for said container hav ing a substantially flat surface readily wiped with a powder pufl, said closure having resillent portions adapted to be depressed and permit passage of a powdered substance to the outside of the closure said resiliency of the portions of the closure normally retaining thesaid portions in the plane of the closure.-
6. A container for powdered substances having a dispensing retainer, said retainer providing a plurality of spirals substantially in a plane so as to be readily wiped with a powder puif.
7 A container for powdered substances, comprising a closure for said container having a relatively extensive surface accessible to be readily wiped with a powder pufi, said closure having alternate resilient "portions and cuts therein, portions of each out being out of alinement so as toenable the resilient portion of the closure to be depressed.
.8. A container for loose powder having a closure, said closure having-a pliable powder dispensing surface comprising alternate resillent portlons and crevices from whlch pow- I der may be obtained by manipulation of a plurality of portions cooperating with each v other adapted to be depressed and permit passage of a powdered substance to the outside of the closure.
