HOLDER FOR TOOTH BRUSHES AND PASTE TUBES Filed March 24, 1947 Patented Mar. 14, 1950 HOLDER FOR TOOTHBRUSHES AND PASTE TUBES Philip C. Raykoff, Long Beach, Calif.

Application March- 24, 1947, Serial No. 736,750

1 Claim. 1

My invention relates to a holder for tooth brushes and paste tube, of the type adapted to be secured to the wall in the bath room, where it is convenient, and which is capable of holding a plurality of tooth brushes in different, independent pockets or places and free from contact with other brushes or other things, and in which the tooth paste tube or container can be placed in the middle receptacle thereof, with the brushes disposed around the same.

My device is also provided with a portion for holding a glass or cup in convenient position for use, and is provided with means whereby it can be detachably held upon two holding screws in the wall, and can be removed as a complete unit when desired for cleaning or other reason.

In order to explain my invention in detail, I have illustrated one practical embodiment thereof on the accompanying one sheet of drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a plan view, looking down upon a holder embodying my invention;

Figure 2 is a side elevation of the holder, with portions in section, to more clearly show the construction thereof; and

Figure 3 is a horizontal sectional view through the holder proper, taken on the line 3-3, of Fig. 2.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, my invention as shown, includes two cylindrical members 4 and 5, one within the other and providing the annular space 6 therebetween, said members 4 and having a common bottom I, secured or fused thereto as shown, and having vent holes, as 8, therethrough.

The tops of said cylindrical members are provided with a plurality of segmental pieces, as 9, 9, secured or fused to the tops of said cylinders, as indicated, to provide the difierent openings or pockets, as l0, l0, down into which the handles or stems of tooth brushes may b inserted, as indicated in light broken lines in Figs. 1 and 2, thus holding the brush portion above the holder in the manner indicated.

As a means for holding the holder, I have provided a strip of material, ll, having one end wrapped around the holder, as indicated thereto, and fused or otherwise secured thereto, said strip ll being provided with two bayonet slots, as l2,

[2, by means of which said device can be hung upon two screws, in a wall, in a well known way.

The other end of said strip H is formed into a circle, as at 13, with a ring of the same material preferably, designated 14, secured therein, as indicated, to form a holder for a tapering cup or glass, as indicated in light broken lines.

I prefer that the complete device be made out of transparent or translucent plastic, either plain or tinted, and in substantially the form and proportions indicated, although I do not limit the invention to the details here used to illustrate the invention, except as I may be limited by the hereto appended claim.

I claim:

A holder for tooth brushes and paste container, including a straight band member having bayonet slots therein for hanging it on supports on a wall, one end of said band member being formed into a first circle for supporting a cup, and the other end of said band being formed into a second circle, two cylindrical members of different sizes, one within the other to provide an annular space therebetween, said members havin a common bottom and being held in the second circle of said band, spaced members bridging the top edges of said cylindrical members to form different spaces for difierent tooth brushes, the handles being extended down into said annular space, whereby the inner cylindrical member forms a cup for a paste container.
