My improved box is preferably madeof sheet metal though it may be made of other materials'and the principal parts are the cover portion and the body portion 11,

Between the lid 10 and the body 11 is positioned the container 13 which is made from a single sheet of metal having the sides bent upwards to form the body of the container and having the slits l t on each side thereof which permits a certain amount of elasticity in the container i self. lVithin this container 13 is positioned the staggered separator 23 also made Oil a single sheet of metal which forms the partitions for the various manicuring items M.
