J. L. YOUNGHUSBAND COSMETIC CONTAINER Filed Feb- 21. 1927 Patented May 1, 1928.
"UNITED STATES JAMES LESLIE YQUNGH'USBAND, OF CH'ICAGO, ILLINOIS.
Application filed February 21, 1927. Serial No. 169,736;
This invention relates :to a cosmeticcontanner, and more particularly .to a container the casing .sectionsot which vare constructed of a casein product, with said sections .pro-
vided with metallic clamping rims hinged- 1y connectedlone to the other to provide a completed container without the use .01 riuets or thelrke.
lit is an object of this invention to construct a simplified cosmetic container the sections oil which are constructed or a casein product such as galalit'h, with said sectionshaving hingedly connected metallic binding rims clamped on the sections, with one 0t said bizuding nims having integral spring tongues adapted to serve as retaining means for holding a compact in place.
llt is also an object of t h'isinvention to construct a cosmetic container of a casein product'wi thout the use of rivets or the like.
It is a further object of this invention to construct a cosmetic container of casing sections having abutting metallic binding rims hinged to one another and clamped to the respective sections with a locking means between said bin ding rims for holding the container sections in closed position.
It is an important object of this invention to provide in cosmetic container wherein the body and cover are constructed o l a casein product such as galal ith, with said body and cover having 1ne'i-ulflit rims clamped thereon and lunged to one another,
with one of said rims h avi-ng spring members struck therefrom for the purpose oi re.-' taining 21 solid powder compact in place within t-h body portion of the container.
Other and furtl'ier important ob iects oi? this invention will be apparent from the disclosures in the specification and the accompanying drawings.
This invention (in a preferred form) is illustrated in the drawings and hereinafter more fully described.
On the drawings:
Figure 1 is a. side elevation of a cosmetic container embodying the principles of this invention.
Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof.
Figure 3 is a top plan view of the bottom section of the container with the cover removed.
) Figure 4 is a transverse section of the container taken on line IV-IV of Figure 2.
Figure 5 is a bottom plan view of the cover removed from the container,
Figure 6 is an enlarged l ragmentary detail section taken on line VI-VI cut 1* igure 1 Figure 17 is an enlarged alragmentary dctaiil section taken on line VII-i 11 of Figure 3 showing a portion of the :cover in place.
As shown on the drawings:
"lhe reaterence numeral 1 indicates a dished or concave bottom :or body section constructed of a casein product such as .gela'lith, which is casein treat-ed with formaldehyde andsubjected to hear pressure. Frictionally clamped on the rim or margin of the body section 1 is a U-crosssectioned metallic rim 2, the inner flange of which has a plurality ofreztaining springs .or fingers l struck therefrom to serve as flexible metaining means for removably holding a solid poivder compaotrcahe seated W? in thebody section. The outer flange 5 is slightly Wider or deeper than the inner flange 3 and is slightly curved to conform :to .the contour of the body section 1, thereby holding the rim frictiona'l ly in place on the body :sec-
' tion 1. A detent 6 is provided in the outer tid ngs :5 torn purpose hereinai ter more :trtlly de cribed. integrally formed on the rim n en. a poi-nt substantizully diagonally opposite the detent 6 is u hinge sleeve *7.
The body section 1 is adapted to be clamped by uncans of a convex top or cover ucted eta casein product such rictionalllyengaged on the rim he'cover =5 isa metallic binding rim Shaving integrally formed thereon a pair of spziced l'iinge sleevesdO adapted to be positioned on opposite sides and in alignment with the hinge sleeve 7 to permit a. hinge pin 11 to be engaged through the registering hinge sleeves 7 and 10. The binding rim 9 is provided with a plurality of tongues or lugs 12 which project upwardly within the cover and clamp thereagainst to hold the rim 9 secured in position. Integrally formed on the binding rim 9 at a point substantially opposite the hinge sleeves 10 is a locking finger or spring clip 13 having an indent at let to lockingly seat in the detent 6 of the bottom rim to hold the cover 8 latched in closed position to the body section 1.
It will thus be seen that a cosmetic container is provided with the body section and cover constructed of a casein product such as galalith, with the abut-ting rimsof the body and cover bound by metallic rims which are trictionally held in position with said rims hinged together at the rear portion of the container While the front portions of the rims are provided with resilient locking means for holding the cover locked in position on the body section. Resilient means-is also provided within the body section. such as the spring lugs l. which serve to hold a. cake of powder or the like in position within the container. The entire device is constructed without the use of rivets screws. or any other specific retaining means, thereby n'oducii'ig a cosmetic container which can be readily manufactured and assembled at a substantially low cost. I am aware that many changes may be made, and numerous details of construction may be varied through a wide range without departing from the principles of this invention, and I therefore do not purpose limiting the patent granted hereon, otherwise than necessitated by the scope of the appended claims.
I claim as my invention 1. A cosmetic container comprising a body section constructed of a casein product, a metallic binding rim trictionally engaged on said body section a cover constructed of a casein product, a metallic binding rim for said cover frictionally held in position thereon, hinge means formed on and connecting .-:aid binding rims. and latching means integrally formed on said binding rims for holding the cover locked to said body section.
2. A cosmetic container COlTlPllSlflg a body section and a cover both constructed of galalith, binding rims frictionally engaged on said body section and on said cover, means integrally formed on said binding rims for hingedly connecting said binding'rims, and latching means integrally formed on said binding rims for holding said binding rims locked to one another when the cover is in closed position on said body section.
A cosmetic container comprising a concave body section constrm'ted ot' galalith, a convex coverconstructed of galalith,a metallie binding rim frictionally engaged on said body section. spring Illtll'llJQlS formed on the inner portion of said binding rim for removably holding a compact seated in the body section. a metallic binding rim frictaionally ci'igaged on said cover, hinge means for connecting said binding rims, and resilient latching means carried by the cover binding rim adapted to l'rictionally engage the body section binding rim to hold the rover locked in place on said body section.
4. A cosmetic container comprising a concave body section, a convex top section. metallic binding rims 'l'rictionally engaged on the margins of said body section and said cover section, hinge means for connecting said binding rims, and frietiionally engaging latch means integrally formed on said binding rims for holding the same locked together with the cover section closing said body section.
5. A cosmetic container comprising a con cave base section, a convex cover section. a binding rim frictionally engaged on said base section resilient tongues struck from said binding rim to afford a means for holding a compact in place within said body section. a binding rim frictionally engaged on said cover section. means for pivotally connecting said binding rims, and latching n'ieans on said binding rims for locking the cover section in place on said base section.
(3. A container comprising top and bottom sections of non-metallic material. binding rims on said sections, integral portions on said binding rims hingcdly connected together and integral means on said rims for holding contents of the container in position therein.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name at Chicago, Cook (lounty, Illinois.
