COSMETIC CONTAINER Filed April 16, 1935 INVENTOR Patented July 21, 1936 TATES The present invention relatesto cosmetic con tainefs and, more particularly; to lipstick holders and covers therefore One object of the invention is to provide a i lipstick container whicl'ris' substantially diist proof.

Another object of the invention is to provide a lipstick holder with a permanently attached cover constructed and arranged to be co'nk en iently and readily opened and closed;

A further objecto'f the mventi'dn to" provide a lipstick holder and cover cdnstitiitin'g a case so arranged and constructed that the lipstick holder can be projected: therefrom by the con venient manipulation of a; button or finger piece onsai'd'case by the hand: in which the case is held; 1 V

A further object of the invention is topmvid't a; lipstick container with a mirror sodis-posed and arranged; thereinthat the user may observe heft lips whileshe applies the lipstick.

A yet further object is generally to improve the construction of lipstick containers. p

The holder' Hi and the cover l2 constitutes a 5 protective case for. the lipstick 16 carried by said holder" are constructed and arranged to efi'ec-" ti'vely" preventthe entrance of dust and other foreign particles into the" holder I0 and into the case. For. this ur ose provision is ni'ade' for T0 covering the slot 1'8 through which the finger piece 20 on the lipstick carrier 2-2 extends for projecting and retracting the lipstick f6; Thus, as here show,- the holder I'U and; cover I? are arranged so that when the cover F2 is closed it is 13 positioned adjacent to and overlies the inner wall H whiclr isprovided with said sl'ot I 8". Also for' the same purpose, the cover and holder are con: str'u'ctecl arranged to releasably close tog'ethei in sealing relation to cover the open end! 20 oi the holder IB' through which the lipstick i6 isprojectedand retracted and to elimi'nate any openings through which dust or for'ig'n matter can pass intothe case. The holder and cove'r awe also so constructed and so related to each other ais to permit the holder to moi/e freely ah'vay' from the" cover in response to the force of the spring H of th'e'hinge l5 when the's'p'ring'catclrfi hereinafter described is released by depressing tIieYfing eT-piece I4; These results are acoonF 39 plished in the present embodiment of the inven-' tiomby the construction and arrarfgeifient which v'fill 'now be described ingreater detail.

The holder' llrcoinprises the'inner curvedwall I l and ol'ltei curved wall F3 whic'lr is some what wider? than said inner wall whereby" the latter is offset inwardly; thusforming longitii di'nally extending shoulders 30' as will presently appear; constitute sealing edges' w en the cover is closed. The cover I2 comprises a-* cur-vied well 32- which,- for a: porno-11 0f its-length, is sunset-newly equal: to the lng'th of the isomer-f ru et 'the sanie widtli as the wall l3 of said holtieml and in said portion terminates" iii free longitudinal edges s4 which engage the" shoulders stand together therewi'tn constitfite' means to sear th' case against the" entrance as dust d 'pamcl'es; outer or free en ortie'mw l r me as-sncmae same-steam itli the eriph satellites-fine wa l-i32 sate wmi porti a s'e'whi exterrasteytna the sagas-tonne wan p vided with a slot wclo'sdat its irin 7 other foreign particles.

and 6, the portions of the wall 36 which define said slot have longitudinal extensions 39.

A sleeve 42 having an inner wall 44 fits within said wall 36 and is provided with an. opening 46, which registers With said slot 40, and stop members 48 which engage the free edge of the: wall portion 36 adjacent 'to the extensions 39. The sleeve 42 is held in position on the wall 36 by a cap 5!) which engages the outer peripheryof the wall 36 and is positioned inwardly thereof by engagement with the shoulder 38. Saidoap 50 has an opening 52which registers with the slot 40 in I the wall 36 and with the opening 46 in the sleeve 42 to permit movement of the finger piece I4. Said cap may be secured in position in any suitable way preferably by engagement of the inner sidewalls of the cap with the dots 54 on the outer side of the wall 36.

The catch 6!! for securing the lipstick holder Y It] in closed position against the force of the spring I5 is arranged to engage the adjacent inner surface of, the wall it when the'holder is. closed. Said catch is projected and retracted through an opening 62 in the wall 44 of the sleeve 42 under the control of an S-shaped spring 64 one end of which is fixed to the catch andthe other end of which is fixed to the sleeve 42 in any suitable way.

suchas by a rivet 66 or, as illustrated in Fig. '7, by ears68 passed through small opening 69in the sleeve 42 and reflexed laterally of said openings.

Said spring fi i carries the finger piece I4. The operation of the spring catch thusconstituted is readily apparentand it will be noticed that when the finger piece I4 is depressed the end thereof,

which is fixed to the catch element 60 moves to-- ward. the open end of the sleeve 42 and carries therewith the catch element 6!! out of engagement with thewall' I I of the lipstick holder.

It will be observed that when the lipstick holder isclosed the open end thereof lies closely adjacent the wall 44 and is closed thereby, that the edges 30 and-34 are in engagement, and that the free edge?!) .of the wall I3 engages the inner. edge of the cap 50, thus effectively sealingthe lipstick holderqlfl' and the case constituted thereby and by; the cover I2 against the entrance of dust. and

positions,vsaid wall II terminates at said end I2 somewhat short of the end 10 of'the wall I3. It

will be vnoticedalso that the wall 36 and cap 50 project a substantial distance beyond the wall portion 32 into which the holder) isrested in closed position. Hence said wall 36 and cap 50' permit the-spring I5 to project the holder out of the case.

,The lipstick container may be provided with a mirror. Accordingly, as shown in Figs. Sand 9, thewall 32a of the cover I 2which is otherwise oftthesame construction as the Wall 32 is pro-. 1 vided-withv a longitudinal depression 80 within. which a mirror 82 is disposed preferably flush.

with the innersurface of the wall 32a. With this arrangement of the mirrorit is possible to dispose.

the cover at suchan angle that the user .can observe her lipswhile applying the lipstick to them,

This can be accomplished by holding the cover and lipstickholder at about right angles to each other with the cover extending in a direction approximately-parallel to the lips.

Thus it isseen that the constructions herein To permitthe end 12 of. the wall II to clear the cap 5 0 and wall 44 in; the movement of the holder II! to open and closed comprising awall extending from said hinge shown and described are well adapted to accom- 7 plish the several objects of the present invention.

It will be understood, however, that certain changes may be made therein without departing from the dominant idea of the invention. There- 5 fore, I do not wish to be limited to the precise con-' structions herein disclosed except as may be required by the appended claims and the prior art.
