Application December 4, 1935, Serial No. 52,858
10 Claims.
The invention has relation to boxes, and as to
its more specific features to face powder boxes
used as compacts. In the embodiment illustrated
the box is made of paper or similar flexible ma
5 terial, and includes a powder retaining compart
ment provided with a head which may be read
ily pierced by an ordinary pin, to furnish holes
for discharge of the powder into a loose-powder
compartment.

It is an object of the invention to provide a
face powder box designed to serve the dual pur
showing the perforations in the head and loose
powder in lower chamber;
’
Fig. 3 is a View similar to Fig. 2, with cover
raised and lower perforable head removed and
showing the powder content of the drum located 5
within the base;
Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary cross-Sec
tional view showing the perforations in the head
and a powder puff located within the lower cham
ber of the base;

modification wherein a domed disk filler element

provide a face powder box adapted to prevent
spilling of powder whether or not the purchaser
follows instructions as to leaving said perforable
head in place. Another object is to provide a
face powder box comprising upper and lower

parts, that no loose powder, regardless of what

Another object is to provide such a face powder

"
Another object is to provide such a face powder
box wherein said means to check the flow of the
powder tends to form a closure for the per
forations of said head to thereby reduce to a
minimum the amount of powder siftable through
said perforations during certain uses of the box.
Other objects and advantages will appear here
inafter.y
.
The invention consists in the'novel construc~
tion and combination of parts, as hereinafter setA
forth in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing illustrating an
embodiment of the invention,
Fig. 1 is a perspective cross-sectional view of a
face powderbox embodying the invention;v
Fig. 2 is a similar view but not in perspective
said base, and 6 is the powder-carrying drum
telescoped tightly within and of a height less
punctured or broken.
Ni Op
`
The perforable head 'l is adapted to be pierced
by an ordinary pin to provide holes 8 for dis- ‘
charge of powder, and a powder puif 9 is prefer»
ably located within said chamber, powder tend
ing to sift downwardly through said holes upon
said puff, the latter tending to act as a closure
for the perforations of said head to thereby re
duce to a minimum the amount of powder sift
able through said perforations during the time
between applications of powder, the powder puff
being adapted to receive additional powder from
said holes at the will of the user upon tapping 40
the cover of the box.
Loose powder from the perforations of said
head and from said puff tends to accumulate in
said lower chamber of the base, in limited but
sufficient quantity for subsequent application,
ïand is protected against spilling. Shouldthe
purchaser fail to follow instructions, which may
be printed on the box. and remove the perforable
head from the powder carrying drum, the base
which has a volume sufficient to- contain a greater 50
amount of powder than the drum, is adapted to
receive all of the powder that had been contained
in said drum, and retain it in a position where
it cannotrspill ovei` the edge of the base, as indi
cated in Fig. 3.

The base I, 2 constitutes a lower and loose
powder receiving compartment of the box and
the cover 3, 4 constitutes an upper and contained
powder compartment, the latter compartment
being the general supply compartment of the box,
in which the supply of powder is contained.
It has been indicated above that the side wall
or flange 6 of the powder supply drum is of less
height or width than that of the wall or flange 2
10 of the box base. The wall or ñange 4 of the
cover, telescoping within the wall 2 of the base,
is also less in height or width than the base wall
2, and may as shown be of substantially the same
width as the drum wall 6. It will also be noted
that the upper wall 3 of the general powder sup

that the upper or powder supply compartment is
provided with an underlying passageway through
which the powder in said upper compartment
normally passes into the lower compartment 5
from which it is normally taken for use. This
passageway, in the embodiment shown, is at the
lower extremity of the powder receiving drum and
is covered by the frangible and perforable wall or
membrane 1. The powder normally moves down
wardly through this passageway before it is ac
with the inner surface of the top 3 substantially
at the same level as the upper edges of the side
ply compartment, at points thereof adjacent to
the side wall flang-es, is positioned substantially
wall flange 2, thus avoiding piling up of the pow
at the same level as the upper edge of the base
flange 2 when the cover is closed.
flange 2.
Powder containers of the nature ofthe improved
container herein disclosed are often used in serv
ice and are thus often carried in handbags, and
the like, and are often caus-ed to assume various
positions, frequently being caused to lie in edge
25. wise position or bottom side up. Often the user
prefers to remove the thin, frangible, perforable
head or wall 1 so as to allow the entire volume of
10
cessible for use. It will be noted that the cover
part or section of the box is normally checked
or stopped in its downward or closing movement
der above the upper edges of said side wall or base
'I‘his limiting of the closing movement
of the cover may be accomplished in different
ways and in the illustrative embodiment of the 20
drawing is effected by the projecting marginal
portions of the top 3 coming into engagement
with the upper edges of the flange 2.
The'powder puff and the domed disk I0 each
constitute removable means for varying the vol
ume of the lower compartment.
Since certain changes may be made in the
above article and different embodiments of the
powder to move into the base compartment. At
other times the head 1 is removed inadvertently ' invention could be made without departing from
the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter
30 or accidentally; however, as above mentioned, the
head 1 may be permitted to remain in position contained in the above description or shown in
and be perforated by the user so as to allow the
powder to sift from the containing drum into the
lower compartment. Due to the described ar
35 rangement of the side wall flanges of the cover
and base and of the containing drum, the powder
in the box can never pile up, when the cover is
closed, to a point above the upper edge of the base
ñange 2. As can be readily seen in Figs. 2 and 3,
40. the powder is retained from coming into contact
with the upper inner edge of the flange 2 by
means of the interposed cover flange 4 and drum
flange 6. The upper wall 3 of the drum com
partment prevents the powder from assuming a
45 position above the edge of the wall 2 even though
the box is carried on its edge, or bottom side up.
The result when the head 'l is removed as indi-Y
cated in Fig. 3 is that spilling of the powder from
the box at the time the cover is removed is wholly
50 avoided together with troublesome soiling or mar
ring of garments or other objects. If the box has
been carried on its edge just prior to the removal
of the cover, th-e powder may be piled up at one
side of the box against the top wall and against
55 the adjacent drum wall, but it cannot assume a
position above or against the upper edge of the
wall 2; upon the removal of the cover under these
conditions the powder will not fall over the edge
ofthe wall 2, and portions of the powder piled
60 up against the flange E may fall into the recess
adjacent to the inner surface of the wall 2 from
which the flanges 4 and 6 have been retracted by
the removal of the cover. Spilling of' the powder
over the edge of the wall 2 at the time the cover is
65 removed is thus very effectively avoided.
In Figure 5 of the drawing, a modification is
shown wherein a domed disk or filler element lll
is located within the lower chamber of the base
below said head, said disk as in the case of said
70 powder puff tending to act as a closure or dam
for the perforations of said head to thereby re
duce to a minimum the amount of powder sift
able through said perforations during use of the
box.
From the foregoing description it will be noted
75
the accompanying drawing shall be interpreted
as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
