{II/111111111110 r L. H. BRODRICK Filed Nov. 11, 1 926 CONTAINER 2 Sheets-$heet 2 27 N Z3 Z4 i INVENTOR MATTORNEY Patented Nov. 12, 1929 PATE LEO I-I. BRODRICK, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

I CONTAINER Application filed November 11, 1926. Serial No. 147,763.

My invention relates to containers and refers particularly to containers suitable for the hygenic protection of face powders and powder puffs.

Containers adapted for containing powders to be applied to thehuman skin, as for instance, face powders, talcum powders, body powders and similar products, should be hermetically sealed in order to protect the powder from contamination, preserve it in a dry condition, and protect it from leakage.

In addition, such container-s should be of economic construction and so formed that the introduction of the powder therein and the sealing of the package will require a minimum of operation.

Further, as a powder puff is essential in the application of such powders, the container should be so constructed as to carry a powder pull in a similarly air tight and hygenic receptacle. 1

In addition to the above requirements, the powder puff and the powder must be ready of access by the user.

The above mentioned, and other, advan tageous features are incident to the container of my invention.

Various means have been employed for the production of containers of this character for the retention of a powder mass and a powder puff within one container, but their manufacture has been diflicult and expensive due to the elements employed in their construction. Another serious objection to the generally employed containers is the large'number of operations incident to their filling and sealing, and this latter problem is of the greatest importance to the powder manufacturer or dealer, who is desirous of marketing his products in a container of the described character.

My containers are manufactured and sold in an empty condition with the exception of a powder pull, to the powder merchant and the latter introduces the powder and seals the package. It is evident, therefore, that a reduction of operations necessary in filling and scaling is of the greatest importance to the powder merchant.

In my device, as detailed later, the operation of filling with powder consists in introducing the powder into the open container and closin the opening. I

I It is to be noted that in the device of my invention a powder mass and a powder puff are enclosed" in separate air-proof hermetically sealed receptacles combined into one device, the puff and powder being readily obtained for powder application and that the container cover is not a part of either sealed receptacle, thus allowing the removal of the cover without destroying the hygienic prot .ction to thereceptacle contents.

"'An examination of the accompanying drawings will clearly indicate the economy of material incident to the manufacture of' mydevice with the consequent maintenance of low labor-cost.

In the accompanying drawings illustrating modified forms of my device, similar parts are designated by similar numerals.

Figure 1 is a side view of one form of my device. v

Figure 2 is a top view of Figural partly broken away for clearness of description.

Figure 3 is a development, or lay-out, of the several parts of Figure 1, with the cover I removed.

Figure 4 is an enlarged cross-section through the line 4:4 of Figure 2.

Figure 5 isa development, or lay-out, of

invention illustrated in Figures 1 to 4. of the accompanying drawings comprises a powder puff receptacle formed by the annular cardboard side 10, having a paper bottom 11 which extends over the side 10 and is afiixed to the outer face thereof and a transparent cellophane, or other flexible, top 12 which extends over the side 10 and is afiixed thereto. There is thus formed a separate hermetically sealed puff receptacle.

A casingv consists of the annular side 13 having a separate metal bottom 14; capable of attachment to the side 13 as explained later.

i The pull receptacle is placed Within the casing with the sides abutting and fixedly at tached thereto. The side 10 of the puff receptacle extends'above the side 13 of the casing and a strip of paper 15 is fixedly attached to the outer face of the casing side 13 and the outer face of the puff receptacle side 10.

A sheet of decorative paper 16 is then attached to the outer face of the casing side 13.

There is thus formed a hermetically sealed puff receptacle to which is attached a powder receptacle open at the bottom.

The cover consists of the annular side 17 capable of placement upon the top of the easing side 13 and a domed top 18. Suitable papers 19, 20 are attached to the outer faces of the cover side 17 and the cover top 18.

My device, therefore, comprises three separate members :a herineticallysealed powder puff receptacle to which is attached a downwardly extended casing side,.the puifreceptacle extending above thecasing side; a bottom for thecasing and a cover for the device the side of which is capable of abutment upon thetop of the casing side.

Theoperation of mydeiiice is as follows The container manufacturer delivers the three separate parts to the powder manufacturer, with a powder putt 21 within the closed puff receptacle. The powder manufacturer inverts the device, places powder 22 within the open powder receptacle formed by the pull receptacle bottom 11 and the casing side 13, places the metal bottom 14 in position across the powder receptacle opening, and crimps it to the side 13 as shown in Figure l, thus forming a hermetically sealed powder receptacle containing the powder. The cover is then placed in position. lVhi'le I prefer a metal bottom 14, a bottom of other suitable material may be employed.

The operations of the powder manufacturer, hcrefore, consists simply in introducing the powder and ailixingthe bottom.

The modification of my device illustrated in Figures 5 andG .is similar to that described except as regards the means of bottom closure.

In this modification, the side 13 has a fixedly attached bottom 23 having an opening 12% therein, and a false, or inner bottom, 25 having an opening 26 therein of smaller diameter than the opening 2% is fixedly attached to the inner face of the bottom 23. A closure 27 is capable of closing the two openings 2st and 26.

In this modified form, the powder manufacturer introduces the powder through the openings 24 and 26, fixedly attaches the closure 27 and covers the bottom witl the paper 28.

in the other of which is the powder.

I do-not limitmyself to the particular size,

shape, number, arrangement or material of parts as illustrated and described, as these are given simply as a means for clearly describing my invention.

What 1 claim is 1. In a container of the character described, in combination; an hermetically sealed puff receptacle comprising an annular side wall, a friable bottom fixedly attached to said side wall and an imperforate friable top fixedly attached to said side wall; a cardboard supporting casing side extending below the pufi receptacle and attached thereto; a bottom to the casing; a strip of paper extending around the outer face of the puff receptacle side and attached thereto, said paper being extended over the upper edge face of said supporting casing and downwardly over a portion of the outer face of said supporting casing and attached thereto; and a cover for the device.

2-. In a container of the character described, in combination; an hermetically sealed pufl receptacle comprising an annular side wall, a "friable bottom fixedly attached to said side wall and an imperforate friable .top fixedly attached to said'side wall; a cardboard supporting casing side extending below the putt receptacle and terminating below the top of said puff ptacle and attached directly thereto; a botto a to the casing; and a cover for the device.

3. In a container of thecharacter described, in combination; an hermetically sealed puff receptaclecomprising an annular side wall, a friable bottom fixedly attached to said side wall and an imperforate friable topfixedly attached to saidside wall; a cardboard supporting casing side extending below the puff receptacle and terminating below the top of said puff receptacle and attached thereto; a bottom to the casing; a strip of paper extendingaround the outer face of the puff receptacle side, and attached thereto, said paper being extended over the upper edge face of said supporting casing and downwardly over a portion of theouter face of said supporting rec casing and attached thereto; and a cover for the device.

Signed at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, this ith day of November, 1926.
