The case has an inner perfume chamber, or tank, one of whose Walls can be flexed inward for ejecting the perfume as desired by the user. The perfume chamber is contained in 115 a larger chamber, which latter chamber is adapted to hold the other cosmetics. The

case is also provided with a hinged lid containing a mirror and provided with space for holding a powder puff and compact.

We attain these and other objects as will be noted by a further study of the description and drawing, in which Fig. l is a front elevation of the vanity case, F ig. 2 is a top plan View, Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross section taken along the line 3 3 of Fig. 1, Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional plan taken along the line 4 4 of Fig. 1, Fig. 5 is an enlarged sectional plan taken at the same location as 4, but of a modified form 39 of our device, Fig. 6 is a partial sectional plan showing another modified form, and Fig. 7 is an elevation, looking toward the left in Fig. 1

Main chamber 8 contains the perfume chamber 9 within it. A lug 10 is formed on the top wall of main chamber 8. A tapped hole is provided through lug 10, the top wall of the main chamber 8 and the top wall of perfume chamber 9. Into this hole is screwed the screw portion 11 of tube 12.
