CLEANSING TISSUE COMPACT Application llegl August 20, 1932. 'Serial No. 829,583.
'lhis invention relates to cleansing tissues, and its chief object is to provide a package of cleansing 'tissues which will be adapted to constitute one of the toilet accessories carried by most women in their handbags.
A particular object of the invention is to provide a tissue-compact which will comprise a relatively large number of tissues in small compass and which can be refilled easily and quickly when emptied.
A further particular object of the inven-A tion is to provide a compact of this nature which can be incorporated'readily with refills into a neat andcompact bundle for selling same as a unit.
The preferred embodiment of my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which v Fig. 1 is a perspective viewof the compact .'20 in closed condition;
' Fig. 2is a section on line 2-2of Fig. 1;'
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of same in the open condition ready for the withdrawal of a sheet of tissue;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the compact wih flaps open and the rell charge in place;
Figs. 7 and 8 are perspective views of the compact .refill package unit. ,y
Fig. 9 is a perspective view of the package unit in place on the developed transparent wra per.
T e article is shown as comprising essentiall a sin le sheet 1 of stiiiish material, preferab y cardboard, blanked out as shown in Fig. 5; and a plurality of oblong sheets of cleansing tissue 10. The envelope 1 ma be made any desired size within the range o the usual handbag, but preferably has dimensionsl of about 21,/2 x 2 `x 1/2, when closed. It may contain .any reasonable number of. such cleansing tissues, but for standard -purposes 1s made to contain about ten sheets, o1'- enough for one days use.
v The envelope blank 1 comprises two parts 5 connected by an intermediate hinge portion 2 v i k lof a width equal to the desired thickness of the closed compact. lEach of the two portions of the blank is provided at both ends with flaps 3 connected by intermediate hinge portions 4 with'the parts 5 and 6 which form 55 the outer side walls of the closedcompact. The part 5 is also provided with a closing flap 7 similarly hinged to its outer side edge and provided with a tongue adapted when the compact is closed to project into a slot8 in 60 thepart6. u f
The end aps 3 of the part 5- are-adapted when folded over in the manner shown in y Fig. 3, tointerlock by means of notches 9 formed in the opposite edges, respectively, of 05 the two flaps; The flaps 3 o` f thepart 6 are identical with the aps of the part 5 and interlockin a similar manner. The flaps 3 are all cut away on'their inner side edges adjacent v The sheets 10 of cleansing tlssue are preferably of double thickness and are folded in oblated Slform, with Vthe upper vflap of a length approximately equal to the width of the parts 5 and 6, the whole folded sheet being of a size to cover the parts 5 and 6 and the intermediate hinge .portion 2.
In assembling the compact, a packet conl sisting ofthe desired number of sheets 10 is positioned on the unfolded envelope blank as. shown in Fig. 6. When so positioned the end of the exposed flap of thetop sheet coincides approximately with the fold line between the hinge portion 2 and the part 6 of the envelope.- The end flaps 3 are then folded over the stack of sheets and interlocked as shown in Fig. 3.A The two .parts of the envelope are then yfolded together and the tongue on the closure Hap 7 projected into the slot 8 to form a flat closed package of approximately the dimensions stated' above.
In using the compact it is opened to the* I position shown in Fig. '3, thereby, as shown, exposing the free edge of the topmost'ilapof the pack of sheets so that it may be readlly taken hold of and the upper lsheet removed without disturbing. the.' underlying sheets 100 clel for the refill which are maintained in` place'by the overlying interlocked flaps 3.
shown, an outer container or tray 11 is ein-p ployed which provides a dispensing receptaackets,
The tray in its, horizontal dimensions is just large enough to hold the stack of folded tissue sheets, and of a height equal to the width of the compact. It is open at the top except for a short end vpiece 12 which overlies one end of the stack of sheets and-'serves to hold it in place. The side walls 13 of the tray are cut away at the middle as shown,.so as to display the contents of the tray and enable the prospective purchaser to see the approximate quantity of sheets whichv the tra contains.
t the end' opposite the piece 12 the side walls 13 are provided with tongues 14 which extend beyond the endwall 15 of the trayto a distance approximately equal to the thickness of the folded compact, vthe ends of the projections at that point being folded inward.- ly at right angles so that the free engls of the projections lie parallel with the end` wall 15 but spaced therefrom a 'suilicient distance for the folded compact to be held between the tongues 14 and the end` wall 15 of the tray.
The tongues 14 are of a width slightly less than the closure f1ap7 of the compact, whereby the ends of the tongues vwillunderlie the 'closure flap and. be practically concealed thereby., and at the same time support the I compact with its edges in alignment with the bottom, top and side walls of the tray.
Y top, of the stack of sheets or in the portion.
-, and shape shown in Fig. 9'is placed on top of With the. compact thus heldin place on the tray the tray and compact arewrapped tg-` gether with cellophane or other transparent material, whereby the contents of the pack-v lage may be readily examined without the hands Iof the prospective purchaser coming into Contact with lthe sheets of tissue. In order that the tissuel sheets .and compact may be seen to the best advantage, the cellophane is preferably folded so as to have no folds in thc portion o`f the wrapper which covers-the which covers the ends ofthe tra ,particularly the end where the compact is located. .This maybe accomplished by. folding the cellodphane in the manner shown in Figs. 7 and 8. A sheet of cellophane 16 of the relative size .the tray with the center of the sheet coincidf ing with the centerof the top surface of the' .oo
tray and containedsheets. The portions of the lwrapper projecting beyond the ends of l the tray are then folded down smoothly over Y j the ends ofthe tray and are then brought to; v1g'ether under the bottom of the 'tray` where the ends overlap sufficiently' to be joined 't0- gether, as indicated by the dotted yline 17 in Fig. 8.
of the wrapper with their edges under-folded,
are folded downk around the sides of the wrapper and stuck together under the bottomA of the package, as indicated in Fig. 8. Preferably, though not necessarily, a retaining strip 19 is folded diagonally over the stack of tissuesheets, as shown in'Fi s. 7 and 8, the ends of the strip being folded own between one end and one side, respectively, of
. the stack of sheets and the adjacent walls of the tray. With this strip in place the stack of sheets will be held smoothly in p1ace,re gardless of the extent to .which the packa e Yis'handled and the position in which it may placed.
The package as a whole presents a very at, tractive article of merchandise wherein'the tissues are -keptin fresh and sanitary. condition and at the same time permits the nature and appearance of the compact and the quantity of refills to be readily observed.
It will of course be understood that the invention is notlimited to the precise formof envelope here disclosed or to the other specific features herein described, except insofar as such features are recited inthe appended v I claims. f
