TOOTH=BRUSH CASE. A
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters 1 atent No. 674,499, dated May 21, 1901.
Application filed $epteml er 13, 1900. Serial No. 29,901. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, LEWIS EATON, Jr. a citi zen, of the United States, residing at Lancaster, in the county of Erie and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tooth-Brush Cases; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanyin g drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to improvements in tooth-brush cases, its object being to construct one in simple, inexpensive, and compact form, at the same time adapting it for the reception of both the brush and the liquid or powdered dentifrice, which is eX- tremely easy of access when required for use.
To these ends my invention consists of certain details of construction and arrangement, all of which will be fully hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawings, Figure l is a longitudinal section of my improved case with its contents. Fig. 2 is a transverse section taken in the line Fig. 3 is a transverse section taken in the line or mof Fig. 1, and Fig. 4 is a top plan view of the incomplete case with cover removed and showing method of construction.
Referring to the drawings, it will be seen that the case proper is formed of two compartments 1 and 2. The larger compartment 1, located in one side of the case proper, holds the liquid or powdered dentifrice, and the smaller compartment 2, located in the other or opposite side of the case proper, is adapted for the reception of the handle 3 of the toothbrush 4. The cover 5 forms the compartment 6 for the reception of the brush, all as clearly shown in Fig. 1.
The case proper is formed practically of two pieces of sheet metal and is constructed as follows: A sheet of metal is first bent to form the back 7 (see Fig. 4) and the sides 8 8, and a projecting strip, 9 is bent over to form the bottom, being soldered thereto at their edges to the sides 8 8. Another strip of metal, 10, with its top 11 bent over at right form the front wall of the case.
angles, is placed in position, as shown in Fig. 1, and soldered to the case to form the watertight compartment 1. An orifice 12 is cutin the top 11, around which is secured the screwthreaded neck 13. The receptacle is filled with liquid or powder through this opening.
The neck 13 is adapted for the screw-threaded removable reception of the perforated socket 14, which holds in screw-threaded removable engagement the plug or stopper 15. After the receptacle 1 is completed, as just described, the sides 8 8 are bent inwardly to The two bent portions 16 16 have their edges turned over, united, and pressed together to form the seam 17. The cover 5 fits snugly upon the reduced portion 18 of the case, so that the four sides of the caseand its cover will lie in the same plane, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. is pressed in on the cover and is adapted to spring into a groove 20 in the case and prevent the accidental disengagement of the cover when adjusted in position.
It will be observed that the opening in the receptacle 1 is practically level with the top of the case proper, thus giving free and unobstructed access to the liquid or powder when the cover is removed. To use the contents, the plug 15 is to be unscrewed, and the liquid or powder can then be ejected against the brush in the desired quantity through the perforated collar 14. In filling the receptacle it is only necessary to remove the perforated collar 14 and its plug 15, thus' providing the larger opening, through which the liquid or powder can easily be introduced into the receptacle.
The case proper can be easily constructed from its two parts by inserting the bent piece 10 11 before the sides 8 8 16 16 are bent and secured, as has been already described. This simple construction at once provides for the dentifrice-receptacle and the compartment for the handle of the tooth-brush, the cover forming the compartment for the brush end.
I claim- A tooth-brush case having the dentifricereceptacle and the compartment for the tooth-brush handle in the case proper, and a cover which forms the compartment for the brush end, the opening of the dentifrice-compartment being level with the top of the case A rib 19,
name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
LEWIS EATON, JR.
In testimony whereof I have signed my I W. T. MILLER.
