To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known thatT, Auous'r BECK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the township of Cranford, in the county of Union, State of. New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dispensing-Receptacles, of which the folit, and to provide such a receptacle with automatic means for opening and closing the powder compartment at the proper time thus preventing accidental spilling of the powder; to provide a powder puff which will be normally inclosed in the receptacle, and also to provide a mirror and a compartment which may contain rouge or cold cream, or other desired substances.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a plan of a receptacle embodying the improvements; Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 looking in the direction indicated by the arrows in that figure; Fig. 3 is a plan of the receptacle with the combined top and pufl' member removed Fig. 4 is a perspective of the bottom or powder receiving compartment of the receptacle; Fig. 5 is a similar view of the tray with perforated bottom which covers the powder compartment; Fig. 6- is a similar view of the shutter which opens and closes vthe perforations in the bottom of the tray.
The top of the cover consists of the plate 1 and the peripheral depending flange 2, with a shutter 3 pivoted at 4 to slideunder the plate 1 and guided by the. groove 5. The shutter has a nib 6 by which it may be readily operated. a
The lower edges of the flange 2 are turned over the periphery of the disk 7 which forms the bottom of the compartment 8 to which access is had by means of the slide or shutter 3. This compartment is adapted to receive cold cream, rouge or-other paste, but may be used for any other desired pur- Specification of Letters Patent.

- pose. The cover may be turned on the bottom plate or disk 7 when desired. so that the opening willgive access to all parts of the compartment 8 and its contents.
' The disk 7 has a depending annular flange at its periphery forming a bead 9 by which this portion of the top may be turned, and a further depending portion out of which the lugs 10 are punched up. This plate 7 with its depending flange forms an inverted cup to receive the powder pufl and provides a suitable back for it, by which it may be conveniently handled in use.
The shutter for the powder sprinkler consists of a perforated plate 11 with an uprlght peripheral flange 12 having recesses 13 therein to receive the lugs 10. The tray shown in Fig. 5 is similar in. form to the shutter and receives the said shutter which fits snugly therein. Its bottom 14 has a ser1es of perforations 15 adapted to register with the perforations 16 of the plate 11 and to be opened and closed thereby. Its flange 17 is provided with an L-shaped groove 18 inclined downwardly to a slight extent toward its closed end and adapted to receive the lugs 10 at its upper open end. One of these grooves is provided on each side to correspond with the lugs'10 and recesses 13.
In operation when the top is placed in position the lugs 10 pass into the recesses 13 and also into the L-shaped grooves 18. A slight rotation of the cover, therefore, causes them to travel toward the lower end of the groove and to secure and tighten the cover. I
This same rotation of the stopin counter clockwise direction-causes the shutter to rotate because of the engagement of the lugs with the recesses 13, and to move the openings 16 in the plate 11 into alinement with the openings15 in the false bottom 14. This gives the powder access to the pufl while the receptacle is closed. If now the top be rotated in the opposite direction the perforations in the plates 11 and 14 are moved out of alinement and the lugs brought to the vertical portion of the grooves 18, which permit the cover to be removed.
The bottom is composed of the plate 19 and the upwardly extending flange 20, which receive the tray and in connection with it form the compartment 21 for the reception of powder. The bottom of the receptacle is provided with a mirror 22 secured thereon dispensing receptacleis formed of .simple and compact character, which is convenient and efficient aswell as attractive in appearance. It will be understood, however, that the invention is not limited to the details of construction herein described and shown,
but that it may be embodied in various modifications of details and design.
What I claim is: I 1. A device of the character described, comprising in its construction a receptacle for powder or the like, a cover provided with perforations on one side'of said receptacle, a shutter adapted to open and close said perforations, a cover for said receptacle, and means whereby the removal of the receptacle cover actuates said shutter to close the said perforations, said means comprising engaging arts moving said shutter when'the receptac e cover is moved to separate it from the receptacle.
2. A device of the character described, comprising in its construction a receptacle for powder and the like, a shutter adapted to open and close the said receptacle, a cover for said receptacle, and means whereby the removal of the cover actuates said shutter to close the said perforations and the replace= ment of said cover actuates said shutter to open said perforations, said means comprising engaging parts moving the said shutter when the cover is moved to separate it from the receptacle or replace it.
The combination of a receptacle for ,powder and the like, said receptacle having an opening for the discharge of its contents, a device for opening and closing the opening, a cover for said receptacle and a connection between the cover and the said device comprising separable engaging parts incapable of separation while in one position and movable to another position permitting separation, whereby the movement of the cover to remove it from the receptacle causes the said device to close the opening thereof.
4. A device of thevcharacter described, comprising a receptacle for powder and the like, a cover provided with an openin on one side of said receptacle, a shutter a apted to open and close said opening, a cover for said receptacle and means whereby the removal of the cover actuates said shutter to close the .said perforations, said means also acting to cause the replacement of the cover to' actuate said shutter to open the perforations, said means consisting of engaging parts permitting the inde endent movement of the coverin one direction and preventing the independent movement of a device for applying the powder normally located in proximity to the opening when the cover is in posit-ion on the receptacle, and means for connectlng said device with the cover, said means making it removable therewith whereby it may be used independently of said receptacle, and whereby when it is removed the receptacle will remain closed so as .to prevent the escape of powder or the like in all positions.
