NOVELTY TooTI-IBRUSH.

Application led August 28, 1925. Serial No. 53,017.

This invention relates to tooth brushes and has for its object'the provision of certain novel and useful improvements thereof.

One of the rincipal objects of the inven- -tion is to provide a tooth brush with a mirror or reflecting medium to enable the users teeth to be inspected. l l

Another object of the invention is to provide a tooth brush with a detachable handle and to also provide an auxiliary handle for use with the ordinary tooth brush handle.

lVith the above and other objects in view the invention will be better understood by reference to the following description in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part hereof and in which:

. Figure 1 is a view of the bristleside of a tooth brush embodying the invention.

Figure 2 is a similar View of the back lof the brush illustrating the invention.

Figure 3 is a cross-sectional view along the line'S-S of Figure 1.

Figure 4 isa perspective View of the auxiliary handle showing the manner of holding the ordinary tooth brush therein and of securing the mirror thereon.

Figures 5 and 6 are cross-sectional views along lines 5 5 and 6-6 of Figure 4.

Figure 7 is a cross-sectional View along the line 7--7 of Figure 2..

Figure 8 is a fragmentary .detail view partly in section of amodified form of fasllening the tooth brush handle to the auxiliary holder.

Figure 9 is a view similar to Figure 8, illustrating the formation of the handle for receiving the same withinthe auxiliary handle.

Figure 10 is a cross-sectional view along line'10-10 of Figure 8, and

Figure 11 is a fragmentary detail View showing a' further modification and illustrating a detachable handle for an ordinaryl tooth brush.

In the drawings, the numeral 1 denotes th head vor bristle end of the brush with the ordinary handle 2 of bone or other material. The handle is channeled for the reception of a small mirror or reflecting medium 3, of glass or highly polished metal, whichis seated in the channel and provided with a slidable cover 4 of any suitable material for protection of the mirror, the cover being slid over the mirror when thelatter is not in use. The mirror may be placed on either side of the handle in the manner described or screwed directly onto the handle on either side or fixed thereto in any manner.

In Figure 4 is shown an auxiliary handle or holder 2a with a tapered and hollowed end 6 into which a tooth brush handle may 'be inserted and held by the screw 7, and a new brush may be inserted when th`e old one is worn out or discarded. The auxiliary handle or holder may thus be permanent.

In Figures 8 and 9 arev shown modifications of the manner of connecting the handle and auxiliary handle or holder, and wherein the tapered portion 6 and regular handle are screw-threaded at 2b and 2U. handle also carries a mirror 3, affixed thereto in the. manner heretofore described for 'the ordinary handle 2, and held in place by The auxiliary` In this form the regular handle isA understood that the invention is. not restricted to the particular arrangement shown but that the tooth brush may have further modifications and changes as called for in the following claim.

I claim: v

A tooth brush having an elongated handle with a recess therein of substantially the same configuration as the handle, a mirror formed in the handle below the recess and extending from one end of said recess to the medial portion thereof, and a protective covering for said mirror slidably arranged in said recess and of substantially half the length thereof, whereby said cover may be caused to expose said mirror.

In testimony whereof ,'I have signed my name to' this specification.
