Y. Application` April 10, 1936, Serial No. 73,669 2 Claims. (Cl'. 132-82) This invention relates to compacts forV face powder, rouge and the like. Y Special objects of the invention are to provide a simple, attractive and entirely practical form of compact, which will hold an ample supply of powder in a cubical form' adapted to leave room A built-in rouge compartment is shown at I5, occupying. the other corner and lower portion of the box, the same providing a means for conñning 5 the removable powder box in its particular cor in a small case for a full thickness powder puff ner. and which will keep the powder in a proper loose condition and will deliver the same to the puff, held at the outside of the case, in amounts exactly as required and without wasting or scattering` the This particular arrangement described leaves a full depth space at I6, at the left hand side of the box above the rouge compartment I5, for a full thickness powder puff I1. The latter is shown as occupying this full depth space, guided and held at the bottom by a flange I8, projecting powder. Other objects and the novel features of con struction, combinations and relations of parts 15 by which the objects are attained are set forth the case beneath the cover hinge I9. the claims. effecting positive discharge of the same, there is provided in the illustration, agitating and feed ing mechanism in the form of a rod 20, extending through the top of the powder box to a bearing 2|, inv the bottom of the box, said rod carrying a powder propelling blade or blades 22, operating over the discharge openings 23, in the bottom of the box and the entire rod assembly being yieldingly forced downwardly in this position by a coiled spring 24, about the rod, engaged with the powder expelling paddle at the bottom and The drawing accompanying and forming part regards this particular illustration, all within the true intent and broad scope of the invention. Fig. 1 is a broken part sectional front View of the open compact. Fig. 2 is a broken side and part sectional view as on substantially the plane of line 2-2 of Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a bottom view> of the article. Fig. 4 is an enlarged cross-sectional view as I' on substantially the plane of line 4_4 of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is an enlarged broken sectional detail of the lower portion of the case, powder container and agitator with the cover slide in closed posi tion. Fig. 6 is a similar view showing the cover slide withdrawn to uncover the powder discharge open ings. The case is designated 1, and is shown as hav 40 ing a hinged front cover 8, carrying a mirror 9, at the underside of the same. The bottom of the case is shown as having a powder discharge opening Ill, controlled by a cover II, sliding through a guide slot I2, in the adjoining side wall of the case. Within the case, above the bottom powder dis charge outlet is a powder chamber, here shown as a separately formed box I3, of a depth sub stantially equal to 'the full available depth of the case and of elongated shape, nearly the full vheight of the case. This powder box is shown confined in the lower corner portion and against the right hand side of the case by a spring hold 55 ing catch I4, extending from the back wall of the 0 up from the rouge compartment and as extend ing at the top up into~ the upper rounded end of in the following specification, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and broadly covered in of the specification illustrates a practical embodi ment of the invention, but it will be appreciated that changes and modiñcations may be made as 50 case and engaging over the upper end of the powder box. For preventing caking of the powder and for engaging the upper wall of the box as an abut ment at the top. A handle or thumb turn 25, 30 on the upper exposed end of the rod provides a convenient means by which this agitator and powder expelling device can be turned. The powder box has. a suitable cover 26, pref erably in the top of the box as indicated, so that 3 it may be opened and the box be ñlled with fresh powder without removing the box from the case. The rouge compartment is shown as similarly equipped with an easily opened cover 21, provid ing access to the rouge puff and powder. 40 The bottom of the case is indicated as having a turned in ilange 28, at the front edge of the same forming a guide' for the slide and to pre vent the slide being accidentally withdrawn from the guideway so provided, cooperating limit stops may be provided, such as the downward pro jection 29, Fig. 6, on the bottom of the powder box for cooperation with a recess 30, in the slide. A second recess 3|,in the slide is positioned to cooperate with the detent 29, in the closed posi tion of the slide, Fig. 5, to yieldingly retain the slide in this position. The lower end of the agitator rod 2U, is shown in Fig. 5 as projecting sui’ñciently to enter the first recess 30, for yield ingly retaining the slide in the closed relation. 2,118,066 2 When the main cover is opened as in Figs. 1 and 2„ the powder puff I1, may be removed and held below the powder discharge opening in the bottom of the box. Then when the cover slide is pulled out and the thumb knob is turned any desired amount of powder will be siited or discharged onto the puff. In this feeding opera tion, the powder in the box willrbe agitated and any caking tendency overcome. This agitation is 10 substantially the full length of the box, since the spring as well as the powder propelling paddle has an agitating effect on the powder. As the discharge is to the outside, no loose powder is released in the case and the case can thus always be kept neat and clean. Only as much powder as is actually required need be discharged at any time, so the device is economical in the use of powder. The deep space alongside the elongated powder box provides room for a fluiîy full thickness form of powder puff and because of the agitating effect, the powder can be kept in a full» depth form of powder box, such as indicated. The cover 26, extending as it does substantially the full length ofthe powder box, enables the complete contents to- be readily inspected at any time, or if desired, to be fully removed and be replaced withfresh material. The spring mounting of the agitating shaftv permits this shaft to be bodily lifted by the thumb knob „'25, for purposes of agitation or 30 breaking‘up any material that may have caked. The _removability of this powder box enables dif-v ferent boxes oí powder to be quickly substituted in thersame case. 'I'he spring 24 holds the pow der discharging shaft in the position in which it is left, preventing it from shaking loosely around and exerting a powder discharging tendency,‘with movements of the case. ' What is claimed is: 1. A powder compact comprising a case hav ing a bottom wall with a discharge opening therein and a side wall with a guide slot directly above said bottom wall, a slide operating in said guide slot to cover and uncover said bottom open ing, a powder compartment in the said case above said slide and provided with a discharge opening in line with the discharge opening in the case, an agitating and powder discharge member oper , able in said powder compartmentabove the dis charge opening therein and provided with an op erating member at the outside of said compart ment, said agitating and discharge member in cluding a shaft element projecting through the lower end of the powder compartment into the plane of said cover slide and said cover slide hav ing a depression for receiving said projecting end of the shaft element. 2. A powder compact comprising a flat shallow ZO case having a bottom wall with a discharge open ing therein, a closure slide operating over lsaid bottom opening, a powder compartment in said case above said slide and arranged to discharge through said discharge opening in the case, an 25 agitating and powder discharging member oper able in said powder compartment above said dis charge opening and provided with an operating member at the outside of said powder compart-Y ment, said agitating and discharge member in cluding a shaft element projecting through the lower end of the powder compartment into posi-` tion for engagement with said cover slide and a spring yieldingly thrusting said shaft element into holding engagement with said cover slide; ISRAEL BLOOM.
