RAZOR'WIPER AND LATI-IER RECEIPTACLE.

Application filed January 25, 1928. Serial No. 2%,298.

of shaving and embodying a receptacle for receiving the lather as it is wiped from the razor.

In barber shops and the like, it is the common practice to place a piece of paper on the customers chest so as to be readily accessible for having the lather wiped thereon from the razor during the act of shaving. This practice, besides being unsanitary and incurring the liability of the paper being displaced from the customers chest-and causing the lather to be smeared over anything which it may contact, requires the expenditure of considerable time in lifting the paper andholding it in the hand during the wiping operation. Care is also necessary to properly wipe the lather from the razor to clean thelatter and deposit the lather so that it will not be too near the edge'of the paper. Then too, there is the objection that the lather will run off of the flat piece of paper and soil the cloth which is placed over the customers chest.

The primary object of the present invention, therefore, is to provide a device which need only be held still'while the razor is wiped thereon, and which embodies a cup into which the lather is wiped for being prevented from runningv onto the cloth.

A further obj cct is to provide arazor wiper and lather cup which may be readily'kept clean and which will effectively wipe thelather from the razor.

Further objects are to provide a device of the above kind which may be cheaply and easily manufactured, which will not cause discomfort to the customer, and which embodies safe and eflicient means for preventing accidental displacement thereof from the customers chest.

Other objects will become apparent as the nature of the invention is better understood, and the same consists in the novel form, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed.

In the drawing Figure 1 is a top plan view of a razor wiper and lather receptacle constructed in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 2 is a transverse section. on line 2--2 of Figure l.

Figure 3 is an enlarged bottom plan View ofa modified form of the invention, partly broken away and in section.

the device shown in Figure 3, with one of the pin fasteners shown as engaged in the cloth to prevent accidental displacement of the device.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the

present invention comprises'a shallow cup or tray consisting of a single piece of soft rubber and having a short preferably cylindrical side wall 5 which tapersupwardly to form a yieldable upper edgefl havingca flat top surface 7 over whichv the blade of the razor is drawn to wipethe hair and lather therefrom. The trayhas a thin flexible bottom wall 8, andextending downwardly and outwardly from the side wall 5 to a plane below the bottom wall 8 is a thin yieldable supporting flange 9 which is of continuous or annular form and flares in a downward direction to have its lower edge contact the customers chest or body andhold-the bottom of thetray elevated or out 'of contact therewith. In this way, the devicewillnot cause discomfort and the flange 9 willyield to the pressure of the razor when the latter is wiped. Moreover, should the flange 9 be sufiiciently flattened as to cause the bottom wall 8 to contact the chest, said bottom wall. will readily yield and further insure against d scomfort. The lower major portion of the side wall 5 is relatively thick and stiff to permlt grasping thereof without causing material distortion of the same when steadying the device during the razor wiping operation. f In use, the side of the razor blade is pressed against the surface 7 and the blade s then drawn outwardly so that the lather 1S'WlPGCl from the blade into the tray. As the edgeG is yieldable, it will conform to the hollowed shape of the blade to effectively pin fasteners 10 are provided on the inside of the flange 9 and at suitably spaced points so as to normally project inwardly from said flange adjacent to but wholly above the lower edge of the flange, as shown in Figure 4.

The pins or pin fasteners 10 have their ture of cross bars 11. By pressing down on the flange 9 adjacent one of the pins 10, the

latter may be forced to project downwardly slightly below the adjacent portion of the flange as shown in Fig. 5, at 12, to engage in the cloth 18 which is placed over the customers chest. Inthis way, the device will be effectively prevented from being accidentally displaced when in use.

Minor changes may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

What I claim as new is 2-- v 1.' As a new article of manufacture, a

soft rubber tray having a short cylindrical side wall which tapers upwardly to form a yieldable upper edge having a flat top surface over which a razor blade maybe drawn to have the lather wiped therefrom into the tray, said tray having an integral yieldable supporting flange of continuous form projecting outwardly and downwardly therefrom with its lower edge in a plane below the bottom of the tray.

2. -As'a new article of manufacture, a soft rubber tray having a yieldable upper edge over which a razor blade may be drawn to have thelather wiped therefrom into the tray, said tray having an integral yieldable supporting flange of continuous form projecting outwardly and downwardly therefrom with its lower edge in a plane below the bottom of the tray, and means carried by the supporting flange engageable with the barbers cloth to hold the tray against acci- 7 dental displacement.

3. As a new article of manufacture, a soft rubber tray having a yieldable upper edge over which a razor blade may be drawn to have the latherwviped therefrom into the tray, said tray having an integral yieldable supporting flange of continuous form :projecting outwardly and downwardly therefrom with its lower edge in a planebelow the bottom of the tray, means carried by the supporting flange engageable with the barbers cloth to hold the tray against accidental displacement, said last named means embodying a pin fastener embedded in and projecting inwardly from the flange.

4. As a new article of manufacture, a soft rubber tray having a yieldable upper edge jecting inwardly from the flange adjacent to but normally wholly above the lower edge of the latter. 7

5. its a new article of manufacture, a soft rubber tray having a yielda-ble upper edge over which a razor blade may be drawn to have the lather wiped therefrom into the tray, said tray havingan integral yieldable supporting flange of continuous form projecting outwardly and downwardly therefrom with its lower edge in a plane below the bottom of the'tray, means carried by the supporting flange engageable with the barbers cloth to hold the tray against accidental displacement, said last named means embodying a pin fastener embedded in and projecting inwardly from the flange adjacent to but normally wholly above the lower edge of the latter, the portion of the flange adjacent the pin fastener being yieldable to permit the latter to be projected downwardly to engage the'cloth.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
