Application led October 30, 1924. Serial No. 746,846.
Another very important object of the invention is to provide a device of Vthis nature which may be inexpensively manufactured and yet will be durable, attractive 1n appearance, and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the drawing: Y
Figure 1 -is a perspective view of the vanity case embodying the features of our invention showing the same open,
.Figure 2 is a` bottom plan view of the vanity case,
Figure 3 is a rear elevation thereof,
Figure 4 is a transverse section therethrough.
Referring to the drawing in detail it will be seen that the vanity case embodies two compartments which are substantially hexagonal in formation having the common side 5 and the common rectangular shaped bottom 6.v This bottomvis not exactly rectangular in shape as the ends thereof conform to the ends of the hexagonal compartments. Two U-shape'd members 7 are provided one on each 'side edge of the bottom between the compartments so that a wrist band 8 may be engaged therewith for holding the vanity case on the wrist. This band 8 may be of any preferred or conventional construction. The rear wall of each compartment is provided with an apertured ear 9. A common cover 10 is provi-ded yfor the compartments and is constructed with the air of apertured ears 10 one adapted to be ocated adjacent each ear 9 so that a pin 1l may be projected through the apertured ears to hinge the cover or lid over the compartment. The inner surface of the cover,
is provided with a recess' 13 in which is disposed a mirror 14.
We have, in the present instance, shown the preferred embodiment of this vanity case and it 1s evident that changes in the de taiis of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new is:
1. A vanity case having an elongated octagonal base plate, the length of the plate being substantially twice the width thereof, walls forming octagonal compartments rising from said plate, the compartments hav- 1ng a common intermediate wall and having their back and front walls alined and the dlagonal walls connecting the back and front walls with the intermediate wall forming w1th the plate a palr of opposed recesses, the back walls of the vcompartments having on thelr exterior vertical ears reinforcing said back walls and forming supports for a hinge pintle, a cover plate conforming. in shape land size ito the base plate and having a recess in its underside supporting amirror with the face of the mirror flush with the under face of the cover plate whereby the edge port1ons of the cover plate vclose on certain of the walls of the compartments and the mirror closes on the intermediate wall .and the diagonal walls extending. from said intermediate wall, the back edge of said cover plate being provided with hinge ears, and a pintle extending through the hinge ears.
2. A vanity case having an elongated octagonal base plate, the length of the plate being substantially twice the width thereof, walls forming octagonal compartments rising from said plate, the compartments having a common intermediate wall and having their back and front walls alined and the diagonal walls connecting the back and front walls with the intermediate wall forming with the plate a pair ofopposed recesses, the back walls of the compartments having on their exterior vertical ears reinforcing said back walls and forming supports for a hinge pintle, a cover plateconforming in shape and size to the base plate and having a recess in its underside supporting a mirror with the face ofthe mirror flush vwith the".
under face of the cover plate whereby the edge portions of the cover plate close on certaln of the walls of the compartments and e of said .cover plate being provided with hinge ears,
a pin e extending through the hinge ears, and strap receiving loops extending Afrom the base plate opposite said recesses.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures.
