Patented Aug. 6, 1912 M/(TNES'SES TTORNEYS 20 1 Patent, granted to me January 5, 1904,

' inseam.




'Evergreen, Brooklyn, in the county of characters in each Queens and State ofNew York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Brushes, of which the fol lowing is a specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

.The objectpf this invention is to-provide an improved brush for use in cleaning lamp "chimneys, bottles, jugs, jars and similar vessels; a further object being, to provide a brush of this class which is' conveniently,

cheaply and easily 7 made, and which is strong and durable, and at the same time comparatively inexpensive. I

The invention is an improvement on that described and claimed in the U. S. Letters Number 748,917, and is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawing forms a part, and in which theseparate parts of my 1mpr0ve-= nient are designated by suitable reference of the views, and in which t Figure 1 is a plan view showing the first step in the construction of making my improved brush :-F ig. 2 a similar View showing the brush partially completed :Fig. 3 a similar view showing the brush complete:Fig. 4 an end view looking in the direction of-the arrow tot Fig. 3, F ig. 5 a side view of one end portion of the brush looking in the direction of the arrow 5 of Fig. 3, and Fig.6 a side view of one end portion of the handle of the brush.

In the practice of my invention I take a strong wire, and fold the same centrally as shown at a Fig. 1, to form two parallel members a", and between the parallel wire members a and centrally thereof, I place a bunch b of bristles, sea-grass, or other suitable material, the ends of which are tied together as shown at 6 At each side of the central bunch I) of bristles, or other suitable material, and at a short distance therefrom, I place between the. wire members a and longitudinally thereof, as shown at'c,

bristles, sea-grass, or other suitable material, this material being arranged in sheets, and the separate W re members, a are then f firmly twisted together as shown at a in Fi b 2, whichoperationforms at one end of said Specification of Letters liatent.

Applicationfiled January 2 7, 1912.

.wire members a loop or ring a, and con trally thereof a loop a through which the bunch or bundle b of bristles, or other suit able material passes, and in which said bunch or bundle is securely bound, and this operation oftwisting the wire members a? together as shown'in Fig. 2, causes the bristles,

or other material 0, to form cylindrical brush members or sections 0 as shown in .Fig. 2. I also'provide a tubular handle at the end portion d of which is provided with deep transverse recess (i and the central loop portion a in which the central bunch or bundle b of bristles, or other mate rial, is bound, is placed "transversely in the recess d of the handle, one side of said loop a fitting in the bottom of said-recess so that the said bunch or bundle b of bristles, or other suitable material, is securely bound in said recess. Theseparate end portions a of the twisted wire members (1 are then drawn tight along the sides of the handle (Z as shown in Fig. 3, and the end a is passed transversely through the handle, and through the loop or ring (4 in the other end, and is drawntightly, and cut off, and pressed downon or parallel with the handle as shown at a At-the end 'ofthis operation, or before the twisted wire members a are secured to the handle, the bindings b at the ends of the bunch or bundle b of bristles, or other suitable material, are cut, and the said ends allowed vto spread. and the said end portions of the bunch or bundle b of bristles or other material, assume the form shown at b in Fig. 4, said form consisting .of two oppositely directed U shaped portions which form radial Wing's, which-preferably project slightly beyond'the said body of the brush. l

, In the operation of securing the brush members to the handle above 'describedthe cylindrical brush membersc' shown in Fig. 2 are divided centrally and longitudinally of one side so that the handle 03 will fit be-.

especially the bottoms of such vessels, and

while I have shown the handle d as tubular in form, this is not essential, a;ll that is c in Whitti is formed a loop,

necessary in this eonneetion being that a suitable handle having; the reresad in one end thereof, be prmided, and that one of the twisted wire member- 1 u. be passed therethrongh as shown in Fig. i), but other means may be provided, if desired, for securing the ends of the twi.-,ted wire members to thehandle.

It will be observed that the bristlea, or other material, from which the central bunch or bundle the bristles, or other material a. or which make up the sheet a, and this enables the wing member-a b brush to project beyond the brnsh body I) as shown, but this projeetion of said wings beyond said bruah body is not an essential element of my invention.

Haring fully described my invention what 1 claim an new and desire to seeure'by Letters Patent: is:-

t. It brush composed of Wires twisted to- ;L't-thor and folded centrally to form paral- .el parts eonneel'ed at one end by said fold brush material held between the twisted Wires of said parallel parts for a portion of their length, a transverse body of brush material held in at the outer end ot' the Z) is formed are longer than -Pa1ts connected l 1 l i 1 l l l plat-ed bet-ween Said end of which is proreeess in which said ions of said Said loop, and a handle parallel parts and one rided with a transverse loop tit-r. and the free end port parts being Secured to said handle.

A brush composed of wires twiated t0- qether and folded centrally to form parallel at one end by said fold in \Ylllt'll is formed a loop, brush material held between the twisted wires of said parallel parts for a portion of their \'tl' .r body of brush material held in said loop andlonger than the brneh material length, a transv held between the wires of saidparallel parts, and a handle one end portion of which is said parallel parts and proreeeaa in which said said part5.

placed l.-etween \idt-d with a transverse loop lllh. the free end portions of luring secured to said handle.

111 testimony that I claim the foregoing as my inrention I hare signed' my name in )resenee ot the subscribing witnesses this 26th day ot' January 1912.
