POWDER CONTAINER Filed Nov. '19, 1940 Ever flnclersow Patented Oct. 28, 1941 UNITED POWDER CONTAINER, Enar Anderson, North Attleboro, Mass. I
Application The invention relates particularly to boxes for carrying loose powder.
It has become customary for ladies to carry loose powder boxes in their handbags, etc. The
powder boxes may be carriedin the well or other 1 parts of the bag where they may come into more or less direct contact with other articles carried by the user. It is necessary,in order to have a satisfactory powder box, to provide means for preventing spilling or leakage of the loose powder into the handbag, since powder will cling'to and soil articles with whichit comes in contact.
It is customary to provide, a powder pad,-or
puff in the box to .be used in applying the powder,
and'there 'is also usually provided asifter or foraminous cover to aid in control of the amount of loose powder collected by the pad or puff in using. The use of these various articles inside of the box reduces the amount of powder which may be placed therein toa small quantity,and
if leakage from the box is great suflicientfquanwhen it is'opened; or when the box is closed to make theuse of the box impractical. It is an object of the present invention to provide a container for powder'providing a secure seal against leakage while not interfering with the availability titles of powder may escape from the box either of the powder to the user and enabling a sufficient quantity of powder to be carried in the container; I
of villous material, which may have a nap, being so F'or this purpose there is provided a box having somewhat compressible, felt being suitable. The
border may be of any suitable width. The depth of the border is not of material importance but preferably it will be deep or thick enough to provide a well which will contain a sufficient quantity of powder to supply the user for a reasonable period of time. The border will be placed in the bottom of the box so as to leave exposed a villous side to form the top surface of the border.
There will also be provided in the box a sifter composed of a sheet of any foraminous material.
The sifter may be provided with a frame, or edge, of felted or villous material placed on the side of the sifter adapted to come in contact with the border in the bottom of the box. The sifter may be of sufficient size to overlie the border in the bottom of the box. Thus when the powder is in the container, and the sifter is in place, contact of the villous surfaces of the border and sifter will tend to form the two materials into a powder desirable.
November 19, l940 Serial No. 366,294 8Claims. o1. 132-452 container .so, that when the box is closed there may bea "close,,tight compression of the various articles in the box to cause the powder to remain vinlplaoe, and the edges of: the-border and of the sifter-to remain sealed while the pad seals-the sifter againstpassage of powder.
The container may be of any desired shape or form, but .is shown? in the accompanying drawing as oblongfor purposes of illustration.
[Figure 1] is aperspective viewof a powder box in open position witha border in position in-its bottom. Fig. 2is a perspective view of a sifter. Fig. 3 is; a perspective View of a pad. Fig.- 4 is a fragmentaryavertical section on an enlarged scale through a side-of the box in open position with bottom member I I. About the inside of the bottom plate of the member H is shown a border I2. The border l2 may be attached to the bot.-
tom rnember II in any suitable way, as'by an adhesive, or may be placed in the bottom member H without being attached thereto. When the bottom member ll a'well 13 to receive and store This border 12 will be of some suitable material whichmay be compressible or villous .or both. :For this purpose felt may be A sifter lfof foraminous' material is attached to a frame, border or edge l5 of villous material such as felt for instance. of the sifter may besufliciently large to rest on loose powder.
the border I2 throughout its periphery. There is shown an applicator l6 adapted to be placed in the bottom member I I over the sifter I l. The
applicator will preferably be of compressible material or construction and may be sufliciently large to cover the entire opening in the sifter and to rest on or overlie the border l2 throughout itsperiphery;
When the border l2 and the sifter l4 and the pad l6 are in position in the receptacle the border 12 and the frame l5 of the sifter M will be in close contact and upon themwill rest the applicator IS.
The thickness of the assembled parts is greater than the depth of the box.
The frame [5 Protection against escape of the powder is insured when the box is closed. Closure of the cover will put pressure on the assembly and compress the felt members or force them into close contact which may be accomplished by pressure on the applicator which may be at the same time compressed. Thus powder in the well I3 will be sealed against escape at the edges of the well by the contact of the villous materials of which the borders I2 and I5 are made and from escape through the foraminous portion of the sifter I4 by the pressure of the applicator I6.
As illustrated in Fig. 4 a projection I! on the inside of the cover III may be provided to press down upon the applicator I6. The projection I1 is preferably large enough to overlie somewhat the frame I5. Thus the pressure of the projection I! will press tightly together the applicator IS, the sifter I4 and the border I2 to form a closeseal against leakage of powder when the box is closed. The borders I2 and I5 being of villous or nap material will be compressed somewhat by the pressure of the cover with or without the projection I1 and may tend to remain in close contact even when the pressure is removed by the opening of the cover I0.
Changes in sizes, materials, shapes and arrangements may be made without departing from the invention as set out in the appended claims.
I claim as my invention:
1. In a powder container having a cover; a felt border on the bottom of the container within which powder may be placed; a felt frame about the size of the border; a foraminous sheet covering the frame and attached to it at its edges, the frame being adapted to overlie the border so that the powder may sift through the foraminous sheet; and a compressible powder applicator of substantially the same size as the frame, the combined thickness of applicator, frame, foraminous sheet and border being greater than the inside depth of the container so that when the cover is closed it causes the border and frame to form a tight seal for the powder and the applicator to prevent powder passing through the foraminous sheet.
2. In a powder container having a cover, a felt border on the bottom of the container to form a well within which powder may be placed, a foraminous sheet having a felt frame adapted to overlie the border, and a compressible powder applicator of substantially the same size as the frame adapted to be placed over the foraminous sheet so that when the cover is closed the border, frame and applicator form a tight seal for the powder.
