,
Referring more particularly to the container,
it will be noted that I provide a casing or base 15
member I of hollow disc form and having an up
- standing annular peripheral ?ange 2 on one side
thereof forminga relatively shallow chamber 3.
This member I preferably is of one piece cone
struction and formed of' one ofv the'available, 20
light yet strong and attractive molded composi
tions, such, for example, as Bakelite or ‘the like,
which is adapted to be provided in various vcolors
and to take various ?nishes. Further, it will be
noted that‘ the ?angeZ thereon is provided sub 25
stantially, midway between its top ‘and bottom
with a lateral port or outlet 4 through which the
material in the chamber 371s, adapted to be dis
pensed when the chamber is covered as herein
after described,‘ this aperture ‘4 ‘preferably being

same being shown as held in the hand when in

cast in the composition where a molded composi
tion is used. Moreover, the outer face of‘the
member I underlying the chamber 3 is herein
provided with an attractive curvature, While the
?ange 2 is also provided with attractive sloping 35
vfaces 5, 6 meeting in a center line 1, these faces
being extended around the ‘periphery of the disc.
As shown, ‘oppositely located transversely ex
tending cut out portions 8 .and 9 are also pro- .
vided in these faces on the periphery of the ?ange 40
as hereinafter described. more particularly in con
nection with the closure means with which they
cooperate.
.
‘
Also, it will be noted that a transparent, ?exi
ble, and somewhat elastic cover member ID is 45
‘provided over the chamber 3 and ?tted snugly
within the ?ange 2 in such manner as to prevent
the leakage of powder therefrom while permit
ting the discharge‘ of powder through the outlet 2

I0 is formed of “Celluloid”. or one of the avail
able equivalent transparent and resilient mate
rials, and is also provided with an annular ?ange
ll‘ adapted to extend down into the chamber 3

of the ?ange 2 in such manner as to prevent
leakage. Obviously, if desired, the ?ange l I may
be suitably connected by adhesive to the ?ange
2, but as a result of the use of my improved mem
ber ID, the frictional ?t between the parts is such
as not to require the use of adhesive.
Here also
it will be noted that a hole I2 is also provided
in the ?ange H in registry with the hole or ap
erture 4. in the ?ange 2 of the base I.
Thus, it will be evident that a container is pro
duced which is not only adapted to be very con
veniently carried in a bag or vanity case, but also
one which is adapted to permit the user at'all
it is adapted to be very conveniently carried in a
bag or the like, while presenting an attractive ap
pearance and permitting the user always to de
termine how much powder remains therein, the
band l3 then being in its closed or dotted line
position shown in Figure 2. When it is de
sired to use the powder, it is only necessary to
move the thumb or ?nger of the hand holding the
disc, along the outer surface of the latter in order
to swing the band from its closed to its open po
10
sition. With the container thus opened, it will
be evident that the powder may be very con
veniently fed out of the container in‘the desired
times to ascertain how much face powder or other '
amount by pressure on the ?exible face of the
material is in the chamber between the base and‘ cover It, the amount of powder discharged de
cover. Further, it will be evident that, while dis
pensing by shaking the material through the
registering apertures I2 and 4 is also possible, the
material may be much more conveniently, easily
and certainly dispensed by suitably ?exing the
exposed face of the member If! to discharge the
material in any desired quantity through the out
lets l2 and 4; the portion l0 springing back into
its normal or raised position illustrated in Figure
4 as soon as the pressure thereon is released.
Cooperating with my improved container just
described is also improved closure means carried
by this container. This closure means herein in
cludes a closed band l3 extended around the

pressure being readily applied as illustrated in
Fig. l by the thumb of the hand holding the con;
tainer over the‘ powder puff. Obviously, there
after, the aperture 4 is closed by a reverse move
ment about pivot 8, .whereupon the container will
be effectually closed against loss of powder, the
band being retained securely in its closed posi
tion by friction.
‘
As a result 10f my improved construction, it’is
made possible to eliminate altogether various
objections to ordinary powder containers. For
example, I eliminate the di?iculty in obtaining
the desired amount of powder ordinarily ex

formed of a ?exible material which is also some
what resilient. For example, I may use therefor
a thin- closed band of the same material used

ther, ascompared with such containers wherein
the’ powder is in loose powder form beneath a
gauze .or the like, it is also made possible to
eliminate altogether the spilling or flui?ng about ' 1

ingly, it will be noted that the band l3 provides
an effective closure for the aperture 4 in one
position, i. e. when it is over the aperture as
shown in dotted lines in Figures 1 and 2, while
also being adapted to be moved about its pivot
8 to open the outlet 4 and being retained by
friction in the open position shown in full lines
in these ?gures, and further being adapted to
be readily moved from one position to the other.
In the use of my improved construction, it will
be evident that when the container is not vin use,
struction will, however, be clearly apparent to
those skilled in the art.
In Figure 6 I have illustrated a modi?ed form
of construction wherein, if desired, the disc-type
container heretofore described may be mounted
upon arsuitable stand M for table use. The stand
in this construction is provided with a slot IS
in its upper edge portion l6 adapted to receive 70
and support the edge of the previously described
container in upright position. Further, if desired
the latter may be suitably connected to the disc
container by any suitable means, as for example
pins I1. In Figure 8, I have‘ shown a further

through the outlet 4 to drill out the hole l2.
Then the band I 3 is slipped into position, the
same being suf?ciently resilient to permit it to

Further, in the form shown in Figure 8 it will be
evident that the band will not be continuous but
will be connected after being passed through the
aperture I9, such a connection being readily
40 made with the material employed which has ad

iruther directed to the fact that my improved
container, and particularly the disc form thereof,
is adapted to be ?lled and have the cover applied
45 thereto by automatic machinery.
While I have in this application speci?cally de
scribed several forms which my invention may
assume in practice, it will be understood that the
same are shown for purposes of illustration, and
50 that my invention may be modi?ed and embodied
in various other forms without departing from
its spirit or the scope of the appended claims.
