@yi WM @uw Patented Aug. 9, 1932 EDUARD SEYKORA, OF VIENNA, AUSTRIA i @FFICE sHAvING .BRUSH Application filed August 7, 1931, Serial No. 555,819, and in Austria `November 5, 1930;v
This invention relates to an Vimproved shaving brush in which the tufts of hair are Vmore sparsely distributed thanin ordinary shaving brushes, leaving intermediate spaces al in which massaging members of about half the length of the hairs of the brush can be provided in uniform distribution.
The hairs of the brush and the massaging members support each other mutually, so l0, that, on the one hand, the hairs in spite of their slight density aresuiiiciently stiftened to enable the soap to be lathe'red, whereby in actual fact the intermediate spaces contribute to the maintenance of the lather, and, on the other hand, the massaging members, which are preferably made of rubber, are stiffened by the surrounding hairs and in spite of their flexibility are capable of vexercising an eii'ective massaging action. Itis precisely in consequence of their uniform distribution among the hairs of the brush and of their comparatively small size that thesemassaging members are capable of exercising their full eect, without danger of the lather worked up by the brush being impaired or spoiled. thereby. The head ends of the peg-shaped massaging members are preferably provided with cross-` 1 wise groovmg, to increase the rubbingreifect.
These peg-shaped massaging members are formedin one piece with the baseof the brush into which the hairs are inserted in tufts evenly distributed overthe intermediate spaces between the massaging members.
about the massaging members. The rubber base is detachably connected to the handle of the brush, so that the brush can becompletely taken apart for the purpose of easy and thorough cleaning. Y
One form of construction .embodying the invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. l shows the improved shaving brush in side elevation, with the hairs partly omitted. Y v
Fig. 2 shows the brush in plan view from above, with the hairs entirely omitted.
thus serves 'to hold the rubber member in detachable connection with the handle 4.' The individual tufts of hair 6 inserted in the holes 5 in the rubber baseV are thus kept sepa rated at the base, so that the brush does not tenol to become clogged and soiled at'this point. v
The pegs l are provided with half-round thickened head ends 7, and are closely crosse Wise grooved. These massaging members e0' are, as already mentioned, about half as long Y as the hairs of the brushl in Which they 'are incorporated. Y
What I claim is: y
In a shaving brush with tufts of hairl a rubber basevadapted to bedetachably con-1 nected to a handle, a plurality of rubber fingers or the likel of approximately half the length ofthe hairs distributed over theupper l surface of the said base and formed integralto ly therewith, and holes inthe said base for the reception of said tufts of hair uniformly distributed in the intermediate spaces be#-VV 'tw'eenthe said lingers. V
In testimony whereof I have signed my n l name to this speciiication.` f
