SHAVING BRUSH HOLDER.
No. 668,121. Patented. Sept. 22, 1896.
i irl? NITED STATES ATENT OFFICE.
SAMUEL T. VARIAN, OF EAST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 568,121, dated September 22, .1896. Application filed June 11, 1896] Serial N0- 5Q5JO8L (N0 lIlOdGL) To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL T. VARIAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at East Orange, in the county of Essex; and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Shaving-Brush Holders, of which the following is a specification.
Shaving-brushes,especially those composed of bristles, very frequently become bent out of shape by being left standing in the shaving-mug after use, the weight of the handle bearing down and curving the bristles and the same becoming set. In this condition it is very difficult to satisfactorily use the shaving-brush; and the object of my invention is to provide a device to support the shavingbrush after the same has been used and washed out in such a manner that the bristles can dry and assume their natural position.
My improvement is a new article of manufacture; and it consists of a holder of sheet metal formed from a shaped plate having parallel incisions dividing the same into integral spring tongues and arms. These spring tongues and arms are bent to the desired form to make the shaving-brush holder. The outer spring-tongues are bent toset over and, with the plate to grasp the upper edge of the shaving-cup, and thearms rise above the plate and are bent over and curved at their ends to form yielding supports to receive the shaving-brush and hold the same in a vertical position. 7
In the drawings, Figure 1 is avertical sec tion and partial elevation representing my improvement. Fig. 2 is a plan of the same. Fig. 3 is a rear view of the brush-holder, and Fig. 4. is a plan representing the holder-blank in the flat form as stamped up from sheet metal and before the same is bent to shape.
The shaving-cup A (shown in section) and the shaving-brush B (shown by dotted lines) are of any usual or desired character. The shaving-brush holder may be made of any desired kind of metal, ornamented or plated. The same is, however, formed from a shaped plate of sheet metal cut out in the form shown in Fig. 4 and having parallel incisions dividing the same into the plate a, springtongues ct, and arms b b.
The spring-tongues a are bent over just above the line of division which separates them from thespring-arms, and the spring arms or clips I) b are curved or bent over above the plate a, and said spring-arms are given a bend to bring the same from an even plane into a vertical position where the parts thereof are parallel, and the ends of saidarms are bent into semicircular form to constitute spring jaws or clips to receive the handle of the shaving-brush and support the same. A rivet 2 (see dotted lines, Fig. 1) may be employed to connect the arms I) b and stiffen them.
The plate a and spring-tongues a are sprung over the upper edge of the shaving-cup, and they hold with sufficient force to support the brush-holder and brush in place, the brush-holder, however, being readily and quickly removable from the cup at any time desired, and can be as quickly replaced, and the semicircular ends of the spring arms come approximately over the center of the shaving-cup and sufficiently above the same to hold the shaving-brush in a vertical position, so that the bristles come considerably clear of the bottom of the shaving-cup or the cake of soap therein. been used and washed out it is to be supported by said holder, and the bristles readily dry and assume their natural position without becoming bent or out of shape.
I claim as my invention As a new article of manufacture, the shaving-brush holder of sheet metal herein set forth and formed from a shaped plate having parallel incisions dividing the same into integral spring-tongues a and arms I) b, the
spring-tongues being bent to set over and with SAMUEL T. VARIAN. Witnesses:
