l Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 26, 1907.
Application filed June 16, 1906.- Se-rial No. 321,989.
To all whom t may concern,.-
Beit known that I, J oIIN FRANKLIN Goni., a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvement-s in Brushes, of which the following is a description.
This invention relates to brushes having means for holding and feeding soap; and it comprises, essentially, a chamber for containing the soap, preferably in a capsule, apart having a passage for conveying it to the the passage. y
ln the accompanying drawing there is represented a longitudinal sectional view of a shaving-'brush illustrating a form of my invention.
In this drawing the holder 1 has fixed thereto the bristles 2 and contains a chamber 3 and a socket L1communicating with a nipple or passage 5, adapted for discharging fluid or cream soap to the bristles. The chamber receives a soap-containing capsule 6, having a neck 7, adapted tof fit or screw into the socket 4, the neck being closable'by means of a cap when the capsule is detached. The bottom of the capsule, closed when the capsule is detached, is opened when inserted to receive a piston or plunger 8, which is adapted to be moved into the capsule to force the soa therefrom through the neck and the nip e to the bristles. This iston is connected) by its shaft 9 with the ollow handle 10, having the internal screw-threads 11, which engage the external screw-threads 12 on the holder.
The brush is intended for use with a and kremoved and another inserted. While it is the intention to operate in this manner, it is obvious that the soap may be placed' directly in the holder Without the interveiition of a ca sule and forced bythe piston to the bristles in the manner described.
Having described my invention, I claim- 1.` A brush comprisin a holder provided with a screw-thread an having a chamber therein, bristles connected to' said holder, said holder having a passage leading from said chamber to said bristles, a handle havin a screw-threaded connection with the said holder, and a piston connected with said handle and movable thereby in said chamber.
2. A brush com rising a holder having a chamber therein, b) holder, said holder havin a passage leading from said chamber to sai bristles, a capsule for containing a Huid soap and communicating through said passa e with said bristles, a handle-sleeve surroun ing and movable on said holder, and a piston connected to said handle and movable in said capsule by movinfr said handle.'
)Jn testimony whereof I have hereunto set my name, this 15th da of June, 1906, -in the presence of the subscri ing Witnesses.
