UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE HENRY BERRY, OF SHELTON, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO THE DERBY SILVER COMPANY, OF DERBY, CONNECTICUT.
SHAVING MUG AND BRUSH.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 659,282, dated October 9, 1900. Application filed October 29, 1898. Serial No. 694,873. (No models) T all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY BERRY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Shelton, inthe county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful vImprovements in Shaving Mugs and above said mug and the shaving-brush having a handle provided with a recess extending transversely of said handle to engage the vertical walls of said support, said recess having vertical walls which closely engage the said vertical walls of said support and in conjunction therewith rmly maintain said brush in ahorizontal position above the mug or receptacle and free of the contents thereof, as hereinafter set forth.
The invention and satisfactory means for carrying the same into effect will be fully understood from the detailed description hereinafter presented, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a top View of a mug and brush constructed in accordance with and embodying the invention, and Fig. 2 is a central vertical longitudinal section of same on the dotted line 2 2 of Fig. l. t
In the drawings, A designates the shavinginug, and B the brush.
The mug A is provided with a suitable handle C, upon which is the upright pin or pivot D, having at its lower end the enlarged base or knob E, which may be of ornamental character. `'The pin or pivot D is simplya plain vertical metal rod of suitable height and preferably circular in cross section. The base E has its upper end above the horizontal plane of the upper edges of the mug in order that the brush to be supported may always have a normal position above said hori; zontal plane.
The brush B will be of any suitable general form or construction and will be provided within its handle F with the vertical socket G, which will preferably be formed from a metal tube of proper diameter to freely but not too loosely pass upon the pin or pivot D. The inner end of the socket G will be securely closed, and hence there will never be any danger of moisture passing through the socket to within the handle F. The socket G will preferably be slightly greater in height than that of the pin or pivotD in order that when the brush is in position upon the mug it will rest upon the base E in preference to upon `the upper end of the pin or pivot D. The
socket G is circular in cross section, and hence when the brush is in position upon the pin or pivot D it may freely revolve around the latter as an axis. The pin or pivot D maintains the brush detachably u pon the mug and prevents the brush not only from being jarred by accident or otherwise from the mug, but also from tilting to anyappreciable extent in any direction. By the means hereinabove described the brush when not in use may be securely maintained upon the mug at a suitable elevation above the horizontal plane of the upper edges of the mug, and thus the bristlesof the brush will be held from contact with the mug and in such relation that a constant circulation of air is permitted through and about the same.
The shaving mug and brush constructed as above described constitutes a new article of manufacture and one of great utility and convenience to persons having use for articles of this character.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The herein -described mug and brush comprising a mug having a vertical support carried at one edge thereof and extending u pward'above said mug, and the shaving-brush having a handle provided with a recess extending transversely of said handle to engage the vertical walls of said support, said recess having vertical walls which closely engage the said vertical walls of said support and in conjunction therewith firmly maintain said blush in a horizontal position above the 1n ug or receptacle and free of the contents thereof; substantially as set forth.
2. The herein-described mug and brush comprising a mug having the vertical supporting pivot-pin D carried at one edge thereof and extending upward above said mug, and the shavingbrush having a handle provided with a tubular recess G extending transversely and centrally of said handle to engage the vertical walls of said support, said recess G having vertical walls which closely HENRY BERRY.
