Application filed. March 1, 1928. Serial No. 622,175.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM G. KENDALL, a citizen of the United States,.and a resident of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved Toilet Article, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in toilet articles and it pertains more particularly to a container in the form of a powder jar.

It is one of the objects of the present invention to construct the toilet article so that it may be used to contain two forms of cosmetics, such, for example, as powder and rouge, either in loose form or in the form of a compact.

It is a further object of the invention to construct the device so that the rouge container will be more or less concealed in the cover of the device. Y

With the above and other objects in view, reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a top plan view of a device constructed in accordance with the present invention;

Fi 2 is a detail sectional view taken on the hue 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fi 3 is a detail sectional view illustrating t e hinge construction, and

Fig. 4 is a detail-plan view of the blank from which the cover for the rouge container is formed.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the reference character, 5 designates a jar which may be of glass, porcelain, metal, or the like, and said' jar may be of any design desired. The upper end of the jar is preferably formed with a finishing edge strip 6, which is secured in place in the usual manner.

The reference character 7 designates the jar cover and said jar cover is preferably bodily removable from the jar and is maintained in position on the jar by frictional contact with the strip 6. The cover 7 is dome-shaped and is provided with a depending flange 8 which forms a receptacle 9. This receptacle 9 is provided with a hinged cover 10 and such hinged cover is pivotally mounted as at 11. To provide for pivotally mounting the cover 10 the jar cover 7 is cut out as indicated by the reference character 12, and at each end of the cutout portion gears or lugs 13 are struck.

downwardly into the cover. Mounted in these lugs 13, is a shaft 14, and said shaft forms the intle of the hinge of the cover 10. As more 0 early shown in Fig. 4, the cover 10 is formed from a blank 15, which in turn is formed with an extension 16 bifurcated as shown at 17, to provide two extensions 18, These extensions are turned about the pintle 14 as shown at 19 in Figs. 2 and 3, and form together with the pintle 14, the hinge of the cover 10. By this construction it is apparent that the cover 7 of the jar 5 may be bodily removed from the jar to give access to the interior thereof, it being understood that the jar 5 would contain powder either in loose form or in the form of a compact.

The upper receptacle 9 formed in the cover 7 is adapted to contain rouge either in the form of a powder or a compact, and access is had thereto by swinging the cover 10 thereof about its pivotal point or hinge 11 to the dotted line position shown in Fig. 2.

From the foregoing it is apparent that the present invention provides a toilet article adapted for use on a dressing table or the like, which article is adapted to contain both powder and rouge, access to each cosmetic container being independent of access to the other.

What is claimed is:

1. In combination with a container and its cover, a second container formed in the cover, a plurality of depending ears projectin ried thereby, and a hinged cover for said second container, said hinged cover having projecting portions adapted to be rolled past the pintle to form means for pivotally mounting said hinged cover.

2. A toilet article comprising a receptacle, a bodily removable cover therefor, a container formed in said bodily removable cover, said container being spaced with respect to the edge of said cover, a slot formed inthe cover between the receptacle and its edge, depending ears formed on the inner side of said bodily removable cover, and a hinged cover for the receptacle formed in the bodily removable cover, said hinged cover being ivotally mounted between the ears of the bodily removable cover.


inwardly of said cover, a pintle car-
