Application led February 18, 1924. lSerial- No. 63,638.

To all whom t may concern.

Be it known that I, ARTHUR I. REID, a citizen of the United States, residing at Stockton, in the county of J o Daviess and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dispensing De'- vices, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to shaving brushes and has more particular reference to a shaving brush wherein the handle thereof lis formed so as to receive a tube of shaving cream, the outlet nipple of which is to be secured ,with -a passageway 4formed in the head of the brush, whereby a collapsing of the tube of shaving cream will obviously project the same into the bristles or hairs of the brush, means being yprovided whereby said. tube may be collapsed while the same is disposed within the handle of the brush.

The primary object of the present invention is to generally improved and simplify over shaving brushes of this general character.

With the foregoing and other objects 1n view as the nature of the invention will be better understood, the same comprises the novel form, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed. Y v

In the drawing, wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout both of the views:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view ofv a shaving 'brush constructed in accordance with the present invention, the same being shown as disposed within a protecting covering, which protecting covering is shown 1n cross section.

Figure 2 is a detail vertical cross sectional view of the shaving brush per se.

Now having particular reference to lthej drawing, a shaving brush constructed in accordance with the present invention embodies a bristle receiving socket 5 of circular shape formed of hard rubber or other fiber material, and within which the bristles or hairs 6 are to be disposed.v

The closed end of this bristle receiving sockft 5 is formed with a passageway 7 that is cup shaped at its outer end for receiving the cup shaped end 8 of a shaving cream conveying tube 9 that extends through said passage in the closed end of the bristles vopened and internally screw threaded for receiving a threaded closure plug 13.

The .,nterior of said hollow handle 12 is formed at a certain point with a. longitudinally extending curved abutment 14 that engages one side of the tube of shaving cream 11 and arranged within this handle at a point diametrically opposite of the abut- `ment 14 is a relatively elongated elliptical tube compressing spring 15 that 1s provided, with a circular thumb button 16 that extends through an opening formed in the handle, whereby this button may be actuated by the thumb of the user for consequently forcing the tube compressing spring 15 into engagement with said tube 11 for consequently compressing the same and forcing the material from the tube into the bristles in the brush. L

There may be and preferabl is provided, a casing 4 of this shaving brus and in this instance the casing is designated 17 and the same is preferably of sheet metal and of relatively elongated tubular form being open at one end and provided with a flange or bead 18 adjacent said open end and upon the outer surface of the container. Adapted to be disposed upon the open end of this container is a closure cap 19, the top wall of which is provided with a plurality of ventilating o enings 20.

From t e. foregoing it will be readily apparent to those skilled in the brush and broom art, that I have provided a novel form of fountain shaving brush, and one that will meet with all of the requirements for a successful-commercial use.

Minor changes may be made without departin from the spirit and scopeof the appen ed claim. l

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is A dispensing device comprising an open ended cylindrical casing adapted to .contain a tube of shaving cream, an internal lonitudinally curved abutment wit-hin the casa thumb-button carried b one stretch of mg adapted to engage one side of said tube, said spring and Projecta 1e through the l0 sald casmg being provided at a substantiallyV opening in the casing, a removable plug closdiametrically opposite point4 with an opening the lower end of said casing, and a, ing in is wall, an elliptical spring intersocketed member closing the opposite end posed between the tube of cream and wall of the ca sing.

of tbe casing at a point substantially 'dial In testlmony whereof I aix rny signature. metrlcally opposite the aforesaid abutment, ARTHUR I. REID.
