SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 625,719, dated May 23, 1899.
Application filed July 25, 1898. Serial No. 686,811. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES BoHN Onon- FORD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Vicksburg, in the county of Warren and State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shaving Companions; and I do declare the following to be a full,- clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to a portable or collapsible shaving outfit for travelers; and the object is to provide a simple, compact, and
made within the skill of a good mechanic without departing from the spirit of my invention as set forth in the claim at the end of this specification.
The same reference characters indicate the same parts of the invention.
Figure l is a perspective view of my improved shaving companion. Fig. 2 is a 1011- gitudinal section of the same. Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the cup extended, the brush in it, and the mirror set up for use. Fig. 4 is a detail view of the cap or cover.
1 denotes the bottom flange, 'to which the lower conical section 2 is fixed, and 3 the upper corresponding conical'section, which telescopically enconrpasses the lower section.
The bottom flange 1 is formed with an annular circumferential rabbeted recess 4, which forms a seat for the lower edge of the upper section 3 when collapsed.
5 denotes the cap or cover, in the top of which is secured a mirror 6, audits bottom face is provided with an annular flange 7, which is snugly encompassed by the upper edge of the section 3, and 8 denotes a springwire bracket pivoted in the lug 9, fixed to the bottom face of the cap 5, and which may be gral spring-tongue 16, the free end of which is turned inwardly to form a lip17 which engages the groove in the socket to retain the handle in place and prevent its accidental displacement. The inner end of the tubular handle is formed with an internal shoulder- 18, against which the end of the brush-shank abuts, while the spring-tongue engages the front end of the brush-shank to retain it in place when the brush is in use.
Thelug 9 is formed with a notch 19. to re ceive one of the arms of the springwire bracket to retain it in place when folded, as shown in Fig. 4:.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and useful, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, 1s
As an improved article of manufacture, a shaving companion, comprising the lower oonical section 2 having the bottom flange l fixed thereto; the upper corresponding conical section 3 telescopically encompassing said lower conical section; the cover 5, the annular flange 7 encompassing the upper edge of the upper conical section 3; and the sleeve or 5 extended, as shown in Fig. 3, to support the socket 10 projecting radially from'said conical CHARLES BOHN OROFFORD.
