7 Claims.
The present invention relates to a powder container adapted to contain toilet powder, and has for an object to provide a small compact device adapted to fit in a ladys hand-bag, pocket-book or the like, and not only occupy but relatively small space and afford a ready and convenient means for access to the powder, but which is of such construction that the powder is sealed in the container and cannot sift or seep out of the container into the hand-bag or pocket-book.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a powder container of this character which may be conveniently held in the hand and operated to open the container, and wherein the container is provided with a sifting opening so that the powder may be sifted onto a powder puff, handkerchief or the like for use and in the desired small quantity.
Another object of the invention is to provide a powder container of this character which is of an economical and practical construction not only from the point of manufacture but also with reference to its use and handling, and a container which readily lends itself to various artistic constructions and colorings so that the latter may be ornamented in variousways to produce an attractive and pleasing article.
A further object of the present invention is to provide a container of this character with a closure constructed to slide by a slight pressure of the thumb or finger and which is maintained in sealed or taut position when closed by a novel spring structure and arrangement of parts.
With the foregoing and other objects in View, the invention will be more fully described hereinafter, and will be more particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto.

Figure 7 is a transverse section'on the line of Figure 6 and through the sifting button or projection. t
Figure 8 is a similar view taken on the line 8-8 of Figure 6 and looking toward the spring carrying head of the container.
Figure 9 is a perspective view of the parts of-the container separated and in their relative posi- 10 tions ready for assembling. i
Figure'lO is a detail perspective View of a modified constructionof container.
Figure 11 is a fragmentary enlarged section v taken through one end of the same, showing the 15 slidable closure on the end of the container. 7
Figure 12 is an outer end elevation of the same, the slide button shank being shown in section. s
Figure 13 is an enlarged sectional view through *20 one end of the container showing a further modification in its construction, and
Figure 14 is an outer end View of the same.
Referring now to the drawings'uand first to the form of the invention disclosed in Figures 1 2' to 9 inclusive, the container' cornprises a cylindrical body portion 20 which may be of metal or other suitable material and which is of relatively small size so as to readily fit into a handbag, pocket-book or the like which at'the same '30 time is capable of carrying a desired quantity of powder to be used from time to time? The cylindrical body 20 is open at opposite ends and is closed by end heads 2| and 22 which maybe of the internal flange type with the flanges adapt- '35 ed to fit with the desired frictionalcontact against the inner Wall of the cylinder 20, and the head 22 is used as the removable closure adapted to be opened at times for filling the cylindrical body portion 20.
At one side the body portion 20 is provided with an outlet or sifting opening 23 which may be constructed in various ways, such as by cutting or stamping, and which is preferably cylindrical and provided with an intermediate cross 45 bar 24 dividing the opening 23 into adjacent semicircular portions to break up the body of powder adapted to be poured or sifted through the opening 23 when the body 20 is overturned and 7 given the necessary vibration.
The opening 23 thus insures a free and widely dispersed stream of powder from the opening. In the same side of the body portion 20, the latter is provided with alongitudinal guide slot 25 which is longitudinal alinement with the opening 23 and adapted to receive therethro h the shank'26offa slide button 21 whichis carried by a slide or shutter 28 disposed exteriorly against the side of the body portion-.20. "The slide 28 may be of metal or the like adapted to'have fiat 7 ''surface contact with the exterior surface: of the V body'20jandwhich is of suitablelength to pros 'ject over the opening 23 and close it when the slide"28 is shifted toward one'end of the container, as shown in Figure 5; and as shown in Figure 6, to openthe opening 23 when'the slide 28 is retracted.
The guide slot 25 is of sufilcient length to admit oi the full'opening and closing movements of'the slide 28 and to limit further movements purpose. a r
The shank 26' of the slide button is provided with a slot 29 extending therethrough from: side to side and which is of suitable sizejto irelyre- ,ceive therethrough aspring 30' of wire orfthe like which is. disposed within the container body 20; The free end of the spring 30 isgofisetup- V wardly to provide'a bearing finger 3i ioraengagement against the inner wall of the container body V 20 opposite to the slide 28 and the spring is given an inherent resiliency for springing inward and for tension against the shank 26 for. drawing thefslidebutton 21 and the slide 28 tight againstthe side" of the container.
The spring 30'thus'holds the slide 20" metionally against the, container and' insures the c sealing of the slide thereagainst so that'powder within the container cannot readily escape therefrom into the hand-bag or pocket-book.
The body portion of the spring 30 when'unde tension, as "shown in Figure 5, is substantially parallel to theadjacentwall of the container so that .the shank 26 of the slide button is free to be: shifted lengthwiseof the guide slot 25 w and. the desired rtension is maintained at all times on the shank 26.
,The other endof thespring 30 1s provided with :a' suitable supporting frame 32 which as shown in Figures 8 and 9, may be triangular 1 in shape and whichisadapted to be compressed into the flange of 'the'fixed'head 2| of thefcon spring 30 firmly in place. f r 7 I As maybe readily seen from Figure; 9, the powder container is of relatively simple construc- -tainer. arms frame 32fis' adapted to hold the 7 :tion and may be easilyassembled; The slide-28 is fittedc agai'nst the side of the cylindrical body portion 20; the shank 26 of the slide button 21 is now inserted through the opening 33' at the intermediate portion of the slide 28 and.through theguide slot 25 and heldin such position while the finger 3| of the. spring 30is inserted into the ,end of' the container body/. 20 and threaded through the slot 29 in the stud or shank 26.
. -The offset portion of the spring 30 movesthe finger illagainst the inner wall of the container and also forces the body portio'nof the spring 30" qagainst. the inner 'Wall of the slot 29 so as to place the stud or shank under. tension I At the same time the spring 30 is introducedlin'to the V f body portion '20 and the head 2| is forcedlinto closed position; Thislhead 2| mayJ-be permanently secured to the end of the body' portion 20 r or may simply be given a tighter fit therein than dise. 1 c

the head 22. The head 22 is adapted to be re- 7 moved by slight pressure from the end of the container so thatthe latter maybe filled from time to time with powder.
c The device may be'made in different sizes,'of different materials and readily'lends itself to different types and designs of ornamentation so "that the article may be made in difierent' grades and may be sold as various grades of merchantainer body 34 may'be'given'a relatively flat or oval form in cross section and the slide'35 may be in the form of a fiat strip disposed against one i head 3601 the container. 7 The head 36 may have ,the sifting orgoutlet opening 31 therein and also" the guide slot 38.
' 'The slide35 carries the slide button 21 with; its shank 26 as above described forreceiving o The spring 39, may be turnedover at one end 40, and this turned over portion maybe secured in'any suitable V; manner to theflange of the head 36. The other 7 5H similar to the finger 3i in the preferred form Kend'of the spring isrprovidedwith an offset finger to give the spring'39 thedesired tension against the'jshank 2B.
As shown in Figure 12 the shank 26 ma be rectangular in cross section so as to fit the guide slot 38fand hold the slide button 21 and the slide 7 '35 from turning out of line with the outlet open- I j V ing 31.
In thefmodi fication shown in Figures 1 3 and' 14, the end head 42 of the container body 34 may be provided with a recess or countersink 43 in its outersidefor the reception of the slide 35 and this countersink'is of sufficie nt lengthto admit of the free opening and closing movem'entsoi'the Otherwise the construction'is similar e to that shown in Figures 10, 11, and 12. V
It is] obvious that various changes-and modifications may be made in the details of construc- .tion and design of the above specifically described embodiment of this invention without departing" from the'spirit'thereof, such changes and 'mfodi fications being restricted only by the scope of the: I 7
