UNlTED STATES COSMETIC-PAD HOLDER.

Application filed January 5, 1927. Serial No. 159,190.

his invention relates to cosmetic pad holders and has for an object to provide an improved construction whereby a compact of rouge, face powder or other cosmetic may be held in place without the use of glue or any other form of adhesive.

Another object of the invention is to provide a compact or cosmetic pad holder wherein gripping means are formed integral with the holder for gripping and holding a cosmetic material in the holder.

A further object of the invention, more specifically, is to provide a compact or cosmetic holder wherein grooved members are provided arranged radially circumferentially or otherwise with the groove; facing the compact and the compact material interlocking with the material forming the grooves whereby the compact is held in place witnout the use of adhesive.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved construction over my prior Patent, No. 1,602,981, issued October 12, 1926.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a plan view of a holder disclosing an embodiment of the invention.

Figure 2 is a sectional view through Figure 1 on line 2-2, part of a compact or cos- :netic pad being shown in connection therewith. s

Figure 3 is a plan view of a modified con struction to that illustrated in Figure 1.

Figure 4: is a sectional view similar to Figure 2 but showing a modified form of the invention, wherein the overhanging parallel flange and the bottom are differently formed.

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure l but showing slightly different form of bottom.

Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure .i but showing a modified form of parallel flange.

Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, 1 indicatesthe base of the holder, 2 a pressed powdered cake of any suitable cosmetic and 3 a turned over edge.

formed integral with the base 1. In addition to the overhanging portion 4 merging into the turned over edge 3 there are provided a number of holding structures 5 whicl'i are in the nature of annular grooves as shown in Figure These grooves in each instance present shoulders 6 and 7 acting to grip the cake 2 and hold the same in place without the use of glue or other adhesive.

From Figure 2 it will be noted that .the base or body of the device comprises a concavo-convex, disk-like structure having a flange at its periphery with a turned over edge, the flange and edge engaging and holding in place the cosmetic pad 2 assisted by the concentric grooves '5, which grooves are transversely curved and which receive a portion of the cosmetic pad 2 whereby the cosmetic pad 2 is interlocked by the por tious 6 and 7 and associated parts. In Fig ure 1, the grooves 5 are illustrated as being concentric, though they could be radial or some other shape as indicated in the nodi lied form shown in Figure 3.

In this form, the turned over edge 3 is provided similar to that shown in Figure 2 but instead of having concentric rings as shown in Figures 1 and 2, aflnumber of radially positioned grooves 8 are provided merging into a single concentric groove 9, though groove 9 could be eliminated and the various grooves 8 caused to meet at the center or meet in a depression at the center. In any form wherein the groove is used, the shoulder members 6 and 7 are present whereby there is a certain amount of interlocking of these members with the pad 2 whereby the pad 2 is held in place without the use of any form of adhesive. Preferably, the edge and bottom of the pad 2 conforms to the shape of the holder and the upper surface may conform to the same shape, though ordinarily it does not conform to the shape of the grooves 5 or groove 8.

The base or body from sheet material and stamped or formed into shape in any desired manner. By reason of the fact that it is made of thin material, the formation of the grooves 5 on the convex side will produce beads on the opposite side, though these beads are not essential, as if the body 1 was thick the formation of the grooves could be made without the formation of the beads and the beads as such perform no particular function. as far.

as holding the pad 2 in place is concerned. By turning over the edge 3, a powder puff may be rubbed over the surface of the compact or pad 2 without any liability of injuring the fingers or puff. Also. by reason of the interlocking of the grooved structure, the powder cake retained in the body or base until all portions thereof have been con- 1 is preferably made i sumed, except possibly a little in the grooves. It will, therefore, be noted that the cake of rouge, face powder or other desired cosmetic is anchored in place by the overhanging portion 4 with the edge 3 and also by the interlocking feature of shoulders 6 and 7 and associated parts. These anchoring means also resist any tendency of the pad 2 to shift back and forth as the powder pufl is rubbed thereon.

In Figure 4 a modified structure is shown wherein the bottom 10 is flat except for the holding grooves 11. The parallel flange 12 is also diflerently formed and presents a holding overhangingv shoulder 13 merging into an outwardly flaring edge 14:. This form of edge permits the plate or holder to be readily held in a vanity case by certain holding means provided therein forming no part of the present invention.

In Figure 5 a modified form of the inven tion to that shown in Figure 4 is illustrated wherein the bottom 10 is dome-shaped or dished toa great extent so that the holding groovesll will be in a certain sense terraced. V

Figure 6 shows a further modified form of the invention wherein there is provided a flat bottom 15 similar to bottom 10 while the parallel flange 12 is formed differently, namely, with an upwardly inclined portion 16 bent back upon itself at 17 and again bent on itself at 18 to form the upwardly inolined'section 19 bent at 20 for forming the inturned flange section 21. This shape provides an annular shoulder 22 which may receive fastening means for holding the plate in a'vanity case and also provides in an integral structure a pad holding overhanging section 21.

What I claim is:

1. As a new article of manufacture, a base or body for a compressed cosmetic powder cake comprising a concavo-convex disk-like body having a cake retaining flange extending about its periphery at its-concave side,

the body being formed with a plurality of concentric transversely curved cake retaining groove structures at different distances from its center defining a plurality of annular anchoring means to confine and retain a portion of the powder cake placed in the body.

2. As a new article of manufacture, a base or body for a compressed cosmetic powder cake comprising a concavo-convex disk-like body having a cake retaining flange extending about its periphery at its concave side and overhanging the peripheral portion of the body, the body having an approximately flat mid-portion of circular form and relatively small diameter, the body being formed between its mid-portion and its peripheral portion with concentric annular grooves of curved transverse contour, the grooves having their concave sides presented upwardly so as to receive a portion of said cake and thereby cause the cake to be anchored in place.

8. As a new article of manufacture, a base for a compressed cosmetic powder cake comprising a concavo-convex disk-like body having a cake retaining flange extending about its periphery at its concave side and overhanging its peripheral portion, the said body having an approximately flat mid-portion of circular form and relatively small diameter, the said body being formed with an annular groove of transverse curved form surrounding said mid-portion of the body and facing upwardly and defining a pocket to receive a portion of the material comprising a powder cake pressed in the body.

4. A cosmetic pad holder comprising a concavo-eonvex structure of sheet metal formed with a plurality of grooves facing upwardly and having a cake retaining flange extending about its periphery at its concave side and overhanging its peripheral portion, said flange having the edge turned in and forming a smooth head, said flange, edge and groove structure presenting anchoring means for holding a cake of cosmetic in said body.

5. A cosmetic pad holder comprising a concavo-convex disk-like body having a retaining flange extending about its periphery at its concave side, the bottom of said body being substantially domeshaped except at the center, said bottom being formed with a series of annular depressions between the center of the bottom and the side edges thereof whereby a terraced formation is presented acting as holding means for assisting and holding a pad in the body.

(3. A cosmetic pad holder comprising a concavo-convex disk-like body having a retaining flange extending about its periphery at its concave side, and a series of depressions on the concave side forming anchoring means co-acting with said flange for anchoring a pad in said body.
