, POWDER REFILL FOR COMPACTS Filed Sept. 14, 1938 1 1 i9 1 INVENTOR 7 Roger fliT/fem kain r H I45 ATTORNEY Patented May 16, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2 Claims.
The invention relates to powder refills for compacts.
Loose face powder is sold in large boxes or containers and small portions of it are transferred to a compact carried in a ladys purse. Transferring this powder from the container to the compact is messy as the powder is quite apt to fly around and come in contact with ones gown or articles on the dressing table. It is also wasteful and as good powders are expensive, the waste becomes quite an item. It is likewise time-taking and tedious and oft times one may forget to replenish the supply in the compact thus causing considerable annoyance.
The principal object of the present invention is to provide a simple form of refill containing powder and a powder puff for a compact. The refill may be made of different shapes and used in a compact in which only powder is held or it may be made to fit the powder compartment of a compact in which rouge, lipstick and other cosmetics are carried. The refill is made so that its contents are accessible with the greatest of ease and never have to be handled or exposed to the atmosphere.
Applicant is aware that numerous forms of powder boxes or containers have been devised and marketed, but so far as he knows it is new to provide a low flat refill for a compact, the refill containing loose face powder and a powder puff.
Other objects and advantages will become apparent as this specification proceeds. Referring to the drawing forming a part thereof and in which one embodiment of the invention is illustrated:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the refill in position in a compact, the cover of the compact being part way open;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the refill with its throwaway cover removed, the powder puif not being shown;
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view on a large scale and taken on line 33 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3 with the throwaway cover removed.
Referring again to said drawing the reference numeral 5 designates the body-portion of a compact and 6 the hinged cover thereof. The compact in this instance is rectangular in shape and is intended to accommodate face powder only. However as heretofore stated the compact may be of different shape, or the refill, hereinafter described, may fit in the powder compartment of any compact.
The refill is made up of a frame portion having low sides l and bottom flanges II. The sides and bottom flanges are preferably made of a semirigid material such as cardboard and may be formed integral as shown or may be made of two or more pieces suitably secured together.
A frame l2 forming part of a throwaway cover is positioned over but not secured to the upper edges of the sides It]. The opening of the frame is covered by a sheet of transparent material l3 such as Cellophane and another sheet of material M such as paper is adhesively secured over the peripheral edges of the Cellophane l3, the frame 12, the sides ill and bottom ll of the main frame.
A string or cord I5 is positioned at the juncture of the sides It and frame l2 underneath the sheet M on all four sides of the refill. One end of the cord is exposed at l 6 so that it may be pulled and cut the paper all around the refill thus releasing the throwaway cover which comprises the frame l2, Cellophane I3 and. that part of the sheet l4 covering the frame l2.
The opening in the bottom part of the refill is covered by another sheet of transparent material [1 through which the contents of the refill may be viewed and the color of the face powder l8 discerned. For the purpose of neatness another sheet I 9 may be secured over the peripheral areas of the transparent sheet l5 and the under side of the bottom II.
A sieve 20 formed of silk gauze or similar material rests on top of the powder and is provided with a frame portion 2! which snugly engages the interior walls of the sides l0. Resting between the sieve and the transparent cover I3 is a conventional powder puff 22. The powder puff 22 is visible through the transparent sheet l3 of the cover and this makes for a refill package of extremely neat appearance as the puff may be viewed from one side and the powder from the other.
Fig. 1 shows the assembled refill in position in the compact. After the cord I5 has been pulled and the throwaway cover disposed of the powder puff 22 is exposed and the contents are available for use. Fig. 2 shows the refill with the throwaway cover disposed of and the powder pufi removed. As the powder is gradually used the sieve 20 will be pushed downwardly following the powder as shown in Fig. 4. The frame portions 2| of the sieve will always hug the side walls to prevent escape of the powder and by virtue of the sieve following the powder the entire contents of the refill will always be used up and all waste eliminated.
From the foregoing it is thought to be appar- 55 ent that a loose powder refill of extreme simplicity has been provided for a compact. The powder is never exposed until it is used and the annoying condition of having to dump the loose powder into the powder compartment of the compact is done away with. If a person were going away on a trip several refills could be taken and thus a supply of powder is always assured.
Changes in details of construction and arrangements of parts such as would occur to one skilled in the art are to be considered as coming within the spirit of the invention as set forth in th appended claims. 7
I claim: a
1. A powder refill for a compact, said refill having in combination, a low flat box-like container for loose powder, a frame resting on the top of said container, a transparent sheet covering the opening in said frame, a sheet securing said frame to said' container, a string positioned under said sheet at the juncture of said frame and the walls of the container, a sieve adapted to rest on top of said powder, and a powder puff interposed between said sieve and said transparent sheet.
2. A powder refill for a compact, said refill having in combination, a low fiat box-like container for loose powder, a frame resting 'on the top of said container, a transparent sheet covering the opening in said frame, a sheet securing said frame to said container, a string positioned under said sheet at the juncture of said frame and the walls of the container, a sieve adapted to rest on top of said powder, a powder puff interposed between said sieve and said transparent sheet, a frame portion on said sieve, said frame portion being adapted to snugly engage the interior walls of said container, and a powder puff interposed between said sieve and said transparent sheet.
