Specification .of Letters Patent. Application filed March 22, '1909. Serial No. 485,123.

Patented Apr. 19, 1910.

' To all whom it may concern:-

Be it known that I, CHARLES H. JOREY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Seymour, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in-PaintBrush Holders; and I do hereby declarethe following, when taken in COIIIIGCtlOIiWit-ll the accompanying drawings and the numerals of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear,

and exact description ofthe same, and

which said drawings constitute part of this specification, and represent, in

Figure 1 is a top or plan view of a pail with a brush holder constructed in accordance with my invention resting thereon. Fig. 2 a

' sectional view on the line ab of Fig. l.

This invention relates to an improvement in paint brush holders, that isa device adapted to set upon a paint pail and so as to hold the brushes sus ended at such a point that the bristles wi be submerged in the paint so that they will not dry, and so that they will not become bent as is the case when the brushes rest upon the bottom of a pail.

The object of the invention is a simple construction of a device for this purpose formed from wire which may be readily applied to any paint pail; and the invention consists in the construction hereinafter described and particularly recited in the claim.

In carrying out my invention I form the holder from a single piece of wire. wire is folded together at the center and bent downward to form a leg 2 and the ends of the wires are bent downward to form legs 3, 4. Between the legs the wires .are bent back and forth to form fingers 5 to 11, more or less in' number, between which the handles of paint. brushes may be passed as shown in Fig; 2 of the drawings. "Preferably and as herein shown the wires adjacent to each leg are bent upward softhat the fingers are raised in a plane above" the ends of the wires and so that when the device rests upon the top of the pail-the fin ers will standabovethe top of the pail, an so that if the pailbe nearly full the brushes are not necessarily submerged above their heads. It will be seen that these brushes may be suspended at any desired point so that the bristles will be submerged, and will not bepail.

I 7 claim A paint-brush holder formed from wire and comprising a central portlon consisting of a ""luralit of horizontally arran edfingers ormed y looping the wire, an radial extensions from the center, and two ends forming legs to support the device on the top of a pail.

In testimony whereof, I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
