SACHET CONTAINER Filed Sept. ll 1935 INVENTOR,

Paui H. Gwn% Patented Dec. 24, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SACHET CONTAINER Paul H. Ganz, New York, N. Y.

Application September 11, 1935, Serial N0. 40,049

10 Glaims.

'I'h1's invention relates in general to containers and in particular to containers adapted to hold sachet powder and is particularly adapted for use in connection with stored articles such as linens or wearing apparel to which is it desired to impart a fragrance.

While my invention has been shown as applied to sachet containers it is 130 be understood that as to certain phases thereof it may have other uses.

Among the objects '0f my invention are the provision of a sachet container that will be rigid and form sust-aining, so that the contents thereof are protected, and yet one that will freely permit the escape of the fragrance of I;he sachet powder containecl therewithin, and further, a

sachet containe'r having an attractive appear ance combined with 'the aforementioned desirable structural features.

For the attainment of these objects and such other objects as will hereinafter appear or be pointed out, I have shown one embodiment of my' invention in the drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of my invencion with certain hidden structural features indicated in dotted lines;

Figure 2 is a sectional view on the line 22 01" Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows;

Figure 3 is a sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrows; and

Figure 4 is an explodedview showing in separated form all cf the parts cf the sachet comtainer exce1at the outer covering and indicating I:-he manner cf assembling the same by showing the parts in their relative positions of assembly, except, however, that they are spaced from each other instead cf being in adjacency.

As will be observed on inspection of the drawing, I have shown my sachet container as comprising a pair cf inte rfitting shells III and I2 of rigid material, and these, when assembled as shown in Figure 2, form a substantially sphen'cal, hollow body. For purposes of interfitting they may be conveniently made with interfitting flanges I4. Each she1l is shown as provided With a plurality of openings I6 and I8, all cf which are adapted to allow passage cf the fragrance 0f a sachet bag 20, adapted t0 fit within I;he hollovv of the sections I0 and I 2, through the outer Shell. The sachet bag 20 is made of some foraminous material, such as gauze, so that it will surround the sachet powder indicated at 22 in Figure 2, and retain the same, while freely permitting the oder thereof to pass through its walls. It Will be obvious that the properties cf the material cf which the sachet is made, must be such that it will perform these functions properly.

As clearly shown in Figure 4 the bag 20 may be formed from a fiat piece of material the ends of which are drawn up about the sachet powder and brought together in a bunch 2I, and the ends may then be held together in any suitable 0r preferred. manner, such as by tying with thread.

In order to impart an attractive appearance to my sachet container, and also in order 130 hold the two halves of the rigid Shell I0 and I2 together, without however preventing escape cf the perfume through opening I6, I app1y outside of said rigid Shell an outer covering 24 made by winding fibrous material thereover. For this purpose I have found bundles o1 untwisted artificial silk fibres an excellent material. In applying this outer covering the sachet bag may be supported a1: its ends by inserting spindles into the openings I8 and then rotating it so that ehe fibrous material may be 1aid thereon in any suitable 01' preferred manner.

One manner 01" applying "ehe fibrous materia1 is indicated in Figure 1, and invo1ves passing the fibres from one side 01 one spindle point I8 the opposite side cf the other spindle point I8, so that the fibres assume a direction inclined 150 I;he meridian cf the sphere, I8 being taken as the poles. During the applicadzion of the thread the bal1 may be considered as having two motions, one cf relatively rapid rotation through an axis almost perpendicular to I:he axis passing through the poles and the other a relatively slow one about said axis. When the desired amount of fibres have been applied, the free ends may be secured in any suitable 0r preferred manner, such as by the application of 'cement, which may be transparent and colorless.

II: is to: be observed that due 110 all cf the fibres passing adjaceni; the poles I8, the 1att6r will be built so that d;he container Will assume an ellipsoidal conformation, and that due to the aforementioned inclination of the fibres the meridian, where two layers are superposed the fibres i;hereof cross each other ab an angle, as indicated in Figure 1 rthereby producing pecu1iar ornamental effects.

II: will be understood that all manner of ornamental efiects may Ice produced by the use 0d. difierent kinds cf fibres, threads 01' yarns, and. by the judicious use cf 00101, and by various modes cf application of the fibres, threads or yarns.

It. will be ohserved from Figure 2 that while I:he fibrous covering is shown as extending over is 11011 intended 130 be limiting in any sense but is by way of illustration only, and that my invention may be embodied in many other forms, as Will be obvious to those skilled in the art, without departing from the spirit thereof as called. for by the language of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention and illustrated its use, What I claim as new and desire so secure by Letters Patent, is:-

' l. A container for sachet powder or the like, comprising a rigid, hollow shell, provided with perforations leading from the exterior to the= interior, a sachet unit within the hollow of said shell, said unit comprising a mass of sachet pow* der surrounded by an envelope of foraminous material, and a covering of fibrous material surrounding said Shell on the outside thereof and serving 130 beautify the container without pr eventing the escape of odors from the sachet unit.
