This inventionappertains to new and use ful improvei'nents-in toilet articles and more particularly to a novel vanity case, forla'dies.

The principal object of this invention is to provide a novel vanity case wherein means is provided for easily and conveniently eX- tracti'ng a lip stick or eye brow pencil with-v out opening the case.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a vanity device in the form of a container from which a lip stick or eye brow pencil can be projectedby simple and convenient operation. I

hese and other important objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to the reader of the following specificaticn.

In the drawings Figure 1 represents a perspective view of the case in its entirety with the eye brow pencil extended.

Fig. 2 represents a perspective view of the container.

Fig. 3 represents a perspectivevview of the art cle supporting partition.

Fig. l represents a perspective view of the lid.

5 represents a top plan view of the vanity case with the lid removed.

6 represents a longitudinal sectional view through the vanity case.

F3 5:. 7 represents a sectional view taken substantially on line 7-7 of Fig. 5.

Fig. 8 represents a cross sectional view wk on substantially on line 8-8 of Fig. 6.

Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals designate like parts, it can be seen that numeral 5 represents the container and numeral 6 represents the lid, each of which is provided with a rectangular-shaped portion A and a curved portion B merging therewith. The rectangular end portion of the lid 6 is provided with an elongated hinge barrel 7, while the rectangular end portion of the container 5 is provided with a pair of widely spaced shortly hinged barrels 8-8.

The numeral 9 represents an article supporting partition plate which is provided with a laterally disposed flange 10 at its perimeterfor snug disposition within the curved portion B ofthe' container 5:. The plate 9 is alsoi provided with a. portion A and a portion B and in back of the portion A the flange I0. is separatedfroln the plate 9,. disposed inwardly as at I1, and longitudinally as at 12:, this con- 55 struction being provided at each end of the flangelOmaking a pair of such inwardly and longitudinally disposed portions, each of which is provided with a. slot 13 extending longitudinally, the slotsof the portions at 06 each end of the flange It) merging as in the manner shown in Fig. 3;

The rectangular end portion of the plate 9 is provided with a pair of hinge barrels 14- 14, which engage within the barrels 8e 8, while the barrel 7 ofthe lid 6 engages within the barrels 1%14, so that when the hinge pin 15 isinserted through these barrels, these ele ments 5,6 and 9 will be hingedly connected together. v

At the rectangular end-8 of the plate 9 is the pair of plates 1616 for snug disposition against the end wall of the container 5 at the rectangular end portion thereof and in these plates 16- -16 are the openings17.+1;8 for rege 7 istry with the openings 19 20 respectively of. the endwalls of the container 5 last men tioned. 7

With the partition plate 9' int-he container 5, the offset portions of the flange 10 define pockets 21 22 in one of which can be placed the eyebrow pencil 23,- while in the other a lipstick holder 24 may be plaoed ea'ch of these holders being provided with oppositely disposed lug 25 slidablydi'sposed through the slot13 of the adjacent end portion of the flange 10. These lugs 25 loosely engage into the bifurcated ends 26 of complementary levers 27, there being a air of levers which are pivotally connected ogether at their interme'diate portions as at 28, and fixedly at this point to the back wall of the container 5 asat 29.' p

These levers 27- 937 have ofis'et end portions '+30 which when mounted on the pivot 28 and in centralized position are substantially parallel. T and portions 30 30 ar pro:

vided with liigs'v 31' and between th'fi v interposed the extensible coiled 32,

' ber 35 is secured by straight portions to the pin 34 and depends betweenthe lever end portions 30-30 as in the manner shown in Fig. 6. This pin 34 extends through the intermediate portion of a slide closure 36-which when in the position shown in Fig. 6, closes the openings 192O in the rectangular end of the I container 5.

The partition plate 9 is provided with a pocket 37 for the rouge applicator 38 and rouge cake 39 and this plate 9 is also provided with the pocket 40 for the powder cake 41 and powder puff 42.

It can now be seen, that with the lid 6 spacing the user of this vanity case, the sliding of the closure 36 toward the right will expose the opening '20, and simultaneously the pressure of the actuator 35 against the lever end portion on the right will result in the projection of the eye brow pencil 23 through the opening 20. Obviously, by reversing the motion of the closure 36'so that the opening 19 is exposed, the corresponding exertion of force against the lever extension or end portion. 30 on the left in Fig. 6 will result in the lifting of the lip stick holder 24 so that the lip stick will be exposed through the opening 19.

While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that various additions such as a mirror 43, fastening means 44 and other features can be added or removed, and that various tainer being provided with openings toward which the holders are movable, and singular actuating means for the holders whereby the holders can be alternately moved toward their corresponding openings.

4. A vanity case of the character described comprising a container, said container being provided with a pair of openings, a pair of slidable cosmetic holders in the container mounted for slidable projection through the 7 other changes can be effected without affecting the spirit and scope of this invention as claimed hereinafter.

Having'thus described my invention, what I claim as new is 1. In combination, a container, said container having a pair of openings therein, a pair of slidable article holders in the container alined with the said openings, a single closure for the openings, and connections between the closure and the holders whereby the holders will be moved toward the openings when the closure is disposed in opened position. v

2. In combination, a container having a pair of openings therein, a pair of slidable article holders in the container alined with a the said openings, a slidable closure disposed over the openings, a pair of rockable members on a single fulcrum, a member carried by the closure and being operative against one end of each of the rockable members, the remaining ends of the rockable members being connected to the said holders.

3. A. vanity case of the character described comprising a container, a pair of slidable cosmetic holders in the container, said coniii.
