This invention relates to vanity boxes or cases for carrying cosmetics of the kind comprising a casing having a number of compartments for various cosmetics and toilet articles and associated with, mounted on, or forming part of, a bracelet for attaching to the wrist.

The object of the invention is to provide an improved vanity box or case of this kind which is relatively small and compact and which is convenient to carry but nevertheless contains all the usual cosmetic requirements such as face powder, lipstick, rouge, eye-pencil and so on, as well as toilet articles such as a nail le and comb, and which is therefore particularly suitable and convenient for carrying on picnics or other forms of recreation,

According to the present invention the vanity box of the kind described is characterised in that the compartments for the cosmetics and toilet articles are formed in a blank or block of suitable material clamped or otherwise secured in a frame member to which curved bands are hinged to complete the bracelet.

In order that the invention may be more clearly understood one particinar embodiment thereof will now be described, by way of example, with reference to the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figures l and 2 are opposite end views of a vanity case according to the invention;

Figure 3 is an inverted plan View thereof on an enlarged scale; and

Figure 4 is a section on the line 4--4 of Figure 3.

Referring to these drawings the Vanity box proper is formed from a substantially flat rectangular shaped blank 5 of the material known by the registered trade-mark Bakelite In the upper surface of this blank is a circular cavity '6 forming a receptacle for face powder and provided in the usual way with a filter screen 'I and powder-puff" (not shown). This cavity 6 is closed by a hinged metal lid 8 which is mounted on a hinge 9 formed on a metal frame Ii) in which the blank 5 is clamped and on which hinge the curved bracelet band II is hinged. The second curved band I2 is hinged on the frame member I@ at I3. The hinged lid 8 is provided in the usual way with a mirror lli and is held in closed position by a spring clip i5 formed on the side of the lid opposite to the hinge 9 and adapted to snap into engagement with the hinge pin I3 on said metal frame. The lid is also provided with a rubber washer IB which ensures that the powder compartment or receptacle 6 is watertight when closed.

Mounted on, or formed as part of, the upper surface of the lid is a relatively shallow metal cup I'I forming a receptacle for rouge; this cup is also provided with a hinged snap-action closure or lid I 8.

At or near each of the four corners of the Bakelite block 5 four lateral cylindrical holes I9, IQa, 2B and 20a are bored. These four holes are so arranged that each pair I9, I 9a and 2U, 20a extend into the block 5 from opposite sides thereof at each end of said block and all four holes lie parallel to each other (but not necessarily in the same plane) and if desired may be arranged in staggered relationship.

These four cylindrical holes form receptacles for a lipstick 2|, a perfume bottle 22, an eyepencil 23 and a nail file 24 respectively. The lipstick, eye-pencil and nail le are each mounted in a holder in the form of a cylindrical metal tube-like member which is adapted to t into the respective cylindrical holes with a close friction fit. The perfume bottle is formed as a metal tube with a screw stopper' 22a and also lts frictionally in one of said cylindrical holes, Each of the metal holders above described and the perfume bottle are provided with suitable means for facilitating their withdrawal when required, such, for example, as a projecting knurled head as shown.

The vanity-case bracelet may also be provided with a comb. In the embodiment shown a curved comb 25 is detachably secured on the inner curved surface of the curved band I l by means of studs or projections 26, 2'! mounted on each end of the comb and adapted to engage in recesses in the curved band I I.

Suitable fastening means are provided for adjustably securing the free ends of the curved bands II and I2 together when placed round the wrist. In the embodiment shown a screw fastener 28 is connected by its shank to the curved band I I and said shank projects through a longitudinal slot in the band I2 so that by unscrewing the fastener 2S the two bands can be adjusted by sliding them relative to each other and secured in their adjusted position by tightening the screw fastener 2B.

It will be understood that the invention is not limited to the particular embodiment described above, for example the vanity-box or case proper need not be made of Bakelite but of any other suitable material; similarly the frame member il) and the curved bands I I and I2 forming the bracelet, although preferably made of metal, may be made of any suitable material. It will also be 3 understood that the vanity-box proper and the REFERENCES CITED brcarts may be engraved or decorated' The following references are of record in the l of h t A vanity box of the class described comprise t 1s pa' ent ing a frame member, a single block of material 5 UNITED STATES PATENTS clamped to said frame member and provided with Number Name Date spaced cylindrical compartments for various cos- 1,'777,027 DArlet Sept. 30, 1930 metics and toilet articles, bands hinged to said frame member to form a bracelet, a lid for the FOREIGN PATENTS upper surface Bf said block, said lid hinged to one 10 Number COUHIY Date of the bands hinges, and a spring clip carried 439,174 Great Brltfln NOV. 23, 1935 by said lid for engaging the hinge of the opposite band.
