-This invention relates to a vanity case in the form of a hollow toy-figure adapted to be opened, and it has for its object to provide an article 01 this. character which will be unique inappearance and which will hold various toilet articles in such a manner as to be conveniently reached and used.

Two constructions illustrating the invention are shown, by way of example, in the accompanying drawing.

Fig. 1 shows the toy-figure with head removed and in open position-f Fig. 2 shows the head of the toy-figure separate in side elevation.

Fig. 3 shows a lip-stick or powder-stick carrying capsule to be inserted into the neck of the figure. i

Fig. t shows in longitudinal section the closed toy-figure.

Fig. 5 shows in open state a toy-figure of substantially round shape.

Fig. 6 is a section on line 66 and Fig. 7 is a section on line 7+7 of F ig. 5.

Fig. .8 shows in side elevation the toy-figlhe two halves 1 and 2 of th'e'body of the toy-figure, made of hollow pressed sheetmetal-elements, have a plush-cover 3 and are connected the one with the other by a hinge l. The hall? .2 of the body has in its upper end a semi-cylindrical extension 5. The'halt 1 of the body has at the upper end also a semi-cylindrical extension 6 continued by a ring '7 one half of which engages over the extension?) when the two halves of the body are laid together or the toy-figure is closed. The head 8'01. the toyfigure comprises a sleeve :3, slightly projecting from the lower surface and designed to be placed over the ring 7 and the two extensions 5 and ii to securely hold together tne two halves of the body. in the hollow space formed by the ring 7 and the two extensions 5 and 6 a cap-' sule 10 containing a lip-stick or any other useful article may be stored.

lnthe half 1 of the body ahollow-pressed receptacle 11 is arranged which is connected at the upper end with this half of the body by a stud 13 engaging through a slot of the wall of this half ofthe body. The receptacle 11 has at its lower end a flange 14, having a slot through which a stud 12 engages which is provided on the lower end of the wall of half 1 of the body. In this receptacle 11 a powder-stone 15 is placed which is covered with a soft 16. In the half 2 of the body a frame 19 with mirror 20 is located, said frame being fixed in such half of the body in the same manner as the receptacle 11 is fixed in the body half. V

In the construction shown in Figs. 5 to 8 a receptacle 2%, having a circular cavity, is. arranged in the one half 21 of the body of the toy-figure. This cavity serves to accommodate a round box 25 containing powder or the like or a round powder-stone.

in order that these articles may be securely held in the cavities clamping devices for in stance resilient tongues 26, are arranged. For the tongues other means, for instance a suction disk on the bottom of the insertion may besubstituted.

In the hall 22 of the body a frame 27 is inserted in which a bag or pouch 28 of fabric is mounted. This bag can be used for holding articles of any kind, a mascotte, a nail polisher or the like.

I claim 1. A vanity case in the form of a toy-lignre comprising two body sections hinged so as to be opened and closed, a semi-cylindrical extension on the upper end of one section of the body, a projection on the upper end. of the other section of the body having a lower semi-cylindrical portion matching said semicylindrical extension and an upper cylindrical portion, and a ren'iovable head adapted to he lit-ted over the said neck extensions oi the body sections so as to hold the same in closed position.

2. A vanity case comprising a toy-figure formed of hinged sections neck extensions carried by said sections, an article holder fitted in the neck sections, and a head section providedv with a tubular portion to enclose said article holder and engage said neck sections to hold the body sections closed.
