SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters latent No. 712,824, dated November 4, 1902.

Application filed llllaroh 4, 1902.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, HARVEY O. MASLAND, a

citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Holders for Brushes and Drinking-Glasses, of which the following isa specification.

- My invention consists of a holder for brushes and a drinking-glass, the same 0on sisting of a tray and a back, a-portion of which latter is above said tray and another portion is below the same, said parts being integral, thus presenting a light, inexpensive, strong, and durable construction.

Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a holder embodying myinvention. Fig. 2 represents an irregular vertical section thereof, taken on line w 00, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 represents a plan view of the blank from which the holder is formed.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.

Referring to the drawings, A designates the holder, the same being formed of the tray or shelf B, the back 0, composed of upper and lower portions D and E, the opening F in the body of the tray, and the openings G in the periphery or outer edge of the tray, said back having an opening H therein, whereby the device may be hung on a Wall, door, 850., and the tray sustained in horizontal position.

The opening F is designed to receive and sustain a drinking glass or vessel, and the openings G are designed to receive and sustain tooth or other brushes.

The wall of the opening F is flanged, so as to cause the easy insertion of theglass therein, and said wall is furthermore made serpentine or corrugated, forming vertical channels in the flange, so as to permit water on the exterior of the glass to drain therethrough.

The peripheral portion of the tray is bent, so that it does not present a sharp or raw edge $eria11\lo. 96,635. (No model.)

directly to the front, and is furthermore stiffened and strengthened.

The tray and members of the back are integral, being produced from the blank, preferably sheet metal, with openings, such as F G, formed therein, and, furthermore, out through on the dotted lines J into the shape of the lower members E of the back and folded into right-angular form along the dotted line K, thus converting a portion into horizontal position, producing the tray B, and leaving the other portions vertical as the upper and lower members of the back, thus producing a light, inexpensive, strong, and durable construction.

Various changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of my invention, and I do not desire to be limited in each case to the same. I Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A holder comprising a shelf, a two-part back, one part being, above said shelf and the tical passages therein.
