ALBERT H. ACKERMAN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO AULINVi-'lit NOVELTIES COMPANY, Y0]? CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF ILLINOIS.
` Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed February 21, 1910. Serial No. 544,962.
Be it known that I, ALBERT l-I. AfoKnRMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Brushes, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to shaving brushes, and has for its object to' provide a new and improved brush of this description.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure l is a sectional view showing a brush embodying the invention; Fig. 2 is a view showing the brush in position to 'discharge liquid into the bristles, Fig. 3 is a view taken on line 3-3 of Fig. Il; Fig. 4 is a view taken on line 4.-4 of Fig. 1.
Like letters'refer to like parts throughout the several figures.
In the drawings vI have shown a brush provided with the bristles A and the hollow handle B. -The bristles and the handle' are relatively movable. A cylinder or receptacle C is associated with both the handle and ithe bristles. As herein shown the receptacle C is connected with the bristles and ismovably mounted in the handle so that it may be moved back and forth therein. A piston l) is connected to the hamle in any desired manner, as by means of the supprts E. One or more ports F are formed inethe receptacle C and these ports are normally closed by the piston D (see Fig. l). Some means is provided for normally keeping the piston and receptacle in such a. position with relation to each other that the ports will be closed. As herein shown a spring Gr engages a part H on the receptacle C and a part I on the handle B. This spring is compressed when the bristles and handle are moved relatively, as shown in Fig. 2, so that when the parts are released they will be returned to their normal position, as shown in Fig. 1. The receptacle C may extend down into the bristles, or there may be provided a-discharge tube J as shown.
When the device is applied to a shaving brush, for example, and it is desired to use the brush, the hollow handle is filled with liquid or other prepared soap. The part containing the' bristlest is then moved out -frointhe handle, as shown in' Fig. 2. This opens the port F and permits a charge of soap to enter the receptacle C. If the part containing the bristles is no w released, the spring will move it back to the position shown in Fig. l, and the piston D moving in the receptacle C will force a charge of ings to be taken as in a sense diagrammatic.
Great changescould be made in the form, shape, size, proportion and arrangement oi' the parts without departing from the spirit of my invention. That I have shown is the preferred form. I have illustrated the spring as one mea-ns for normally drawing the parts together and also for holding them in the retracted position.
l. A brush comprising a liquid containing handle, a separate bristle holding member, a tube attached to the bristle holding member projecting into the Vhandle and provided with an opening within the handle, and a pist-on secured in the handle and projecting into the tube. j 4
2. A brush comprising a liquid containing handle, a bristle holding member, a tube attached to the bristle holding member projecting intothe handle and provided with an opening within the handle, a piston secured in the handle and projecting into the tube, the handle and bristle holding member longitudinally movable with reference to "each other, and means for. holding the bristle holding member .in its retracted position against the handle.
3. A brush comprising a liquid containing handle, a bristle holding member, a tube attached to the bristle holding member proj ecting into the handle and provided with an opening within the handle, a piston secured in the handle and projecting into the tube, the handle and bristle holding member longitudinally movable with reference to each other, and elastic means tending to draw the bristle holding member toward the A handle.
4. A brush comprising a liquid containing handle, a separate bristle holding member, a
tube open at both ends and attached to the Vbristle holding member projecting into the handle and provided with an opening in a .side WallWithithehandle, anda piston senured in the'handleand' projecting int-o the tu e. `.5 .3 A-brush comprising aliquid containing phandl'e', a separate-bristle holding member, a
