device of this type which is of simple and eco
that the plates extend radially of the box and their
nomical construction and which embodies a
minimum of parts.
In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a top plan view of the invention with
the cover removed;
Fig. 2 is a section on line 2—2 of Fig. 1, with
the cover applied, and
20
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the invention with
the parts in fully extended position.
The invention is applicable to a circular box
having a body I, provided with a cover 2, and
resides in a pair of members 3 and 4 of plate or
25 leaf form which are pivotally connected at their
inner ends by a pin 5, through the medium of
knuckles 6 and 1 formed .on the respective plates
3 and 4, the knuckles being rotatably mounted on
the pin.
30
A coil spring 8 surrounds the pin and has
elongated ends 9 and In which are secured, for
example, by soldering l l and [2, to- the plates.
The plates extend radially of the body and
in width substantially equal the depth of the box.
35 The plate 3 is formed with an extension l3 that is
curved and conforms to the inner circumference
of the body I, the upper end of the extension
being bent outwardly and downwardly to provide
a lip l4 that ?ts over the top edge of the body l
to and clampingly engages the periphery thereof,
thereby to ?xedly hold the plate 3 with relation
to the body of the box.
In use the cover 2 is ?rst removed. following
which the‘ members 3 and 4 are moved into en
l5 gagement with one another and inserted in the
pivotal connection occurs at the center of the
box. Both of the plates have a length equal to the
radius of the box, thereby assuring compacting
of the contents of the box until entirely ex
hausted.
What is claimed is:
1. In a snuff box, a circular body, a pair of
plates each of a length substantially equalling the 20
radius of the body, means for pivotally connecting
the inner ends of the plates disposed at the center
of the body, spring means for urging one of the
plates in a direction to compress the mass of
snuff between the plates, an extension on the
outer end of the other of the plates engageable
with the inner circumference of the body, the
upper end of said extension having a lip which
engages over the top edge of the body and with
the periphery of the body to hold said other of
the plates rigidly in position, and a cover for the
:box engageable over the lip.
2. In a snu? box, a circular body, a pair of
plates each freely removable from the body of
the box and of a length substantially equalling
the radius of the body, means for pivotally con
necting the inner ends of the plates disposed at
the center of the body, spring means for urging
one of the plates in a direction to compress a
mass of snu? between the plates, means for re
movably but rigidly clamping the other of the
plates to the body, and a cover for the box.
