JOHN O. ELLIS'JON, OF SOll'llllr\,l\l.l"l()l\ NEW YORK.


SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 25,926, dated August 1 1, 1896.

Application filed April 2, 1896. Serial No, 585,989. Term of patent 14 years.

To all whom it nmy concern.-

lle it known that 1, JOHN ELLIsJoN, a citizen of the United States, residingat Southampton, in the county of Suffolk and State of New York, have invented and produced a new and original. Design for a Paint-Brush- Suspending Device; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forminga part thereof.

My invention relates to a new and original design for devices for suspending paintbrushes in oil or water in order to keep them soft, and it will be fully understood from the following description and claim when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in whieh- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a paintbrush-suspending device, showing my design; and Fig. 2 is an end elevation of the same.

Referring by letter to the said drawings, A indicates the elongated body-bar of the device, which is of rectangular form in crosssection, and B indicates a piece of wire which is connected at its ends to opposite sides of the body-bar A, adjacent to one end of the same, as shown. The piece of wire B, on each side of the bar A, is formed into a plurality of circular whirls C, and these whirls, which extend at right angles to the body-bar A, and are arranged side by side throughout the length thereof, are of a diameter approximately the same as the height of the bodybar, so that the upper and lower edges of the said body-bar and the uppermost and lowermost portions of the whirls will rest in about the same horizontal planes, as better illustrated in Fig. lhe whirls U are also disposed in such a manner that when the device is viewed in end elevation, as in Fig. 2, it will present the appearance of a rectangular figure and two circles at opposite sides of said figure and without the outline thereof.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The design for a device for suspending paint-brushes, consisting of the rectangular block much deeper than thick and having disposed on each side thereof the helical coils of wire as herein shown and described.

In testimony whereof I ailiX my signature in presence of two witnesses.
