Application inea-,May 2o, i925.l fseriai No. 31,642.

This invention relates toa fountain brush for use iii forming characters and particularly for writing the Chinese language ant the object of my inventionis to provide such a fountain brush of few` parts and one wherein the ink will not How readily except when the brush is in use. Y

Another object of my inventionV is to provide means in a fountain brush whereby the bristles will notl become dry and stift when the brush is not in use. u

Another object of my invention is to locate an auxiliary ink reservoir in such position in a fountain brush that an immediate supply for the flow of ink to the bristles will b e provided when the brush is put to use.

I accomplish the above and other objects of my invention, which will be apparent as the description proceeds,'by means of the device shown in the accompanying drawings, in whichf Figure l is a perspective of my fountain brush with the cover in position thereon;

Figure 2 is a perspective of the brushV with the cover element thereof shown in section;

yand l Figure 3 is a viewl of the brush with the main parts thereof shown in section.

In the drawings, in which like characters indicate like parts on all the figures thereof, l indicates the holder for the ink reservoir 2. The ink reservoir 2 is preferably formed being fitted over a reduced portion ofthe tube 3. .The tube 3 .is preferably formed from a hard rubber substitute and serves "as a distending and holding means for the of metal. The-conductor 6`is provided with a small aperture in its lower extremity, which acts as an air inlet and an inky outlet for the ink reservoir.

Surrounding the tube 5 and forming` a continuation of the tube 3 is'an elongated tube 7 formed from the same material as that comprising the tube 3. The upper extremity of the tube 7 is provided with screw threads of the same pitch as those lof the vwith the tube`7. of thin rubber,the lower open end thereof tube 3. ,The` holder 2, being provided wit-h i l suitable cooperating internal screw threads, thus serves as a means for holding the parts 3, 5 and 7V in proper relation to each other.

Mounted in the lower end of the tube 5 are.

suitable bristles 8 which comprise thewriting element or character forming means of the device; The bristles 8 surround a hollow metal tube 9 by means of which the ink is conducted to the bristles during use. The opening through thetube 9 is of minute cross section'whereby the ink will be fed in small quantities to the bristles, thus avoiding danger of the brush flooding or dropping ink.

During the use of the brush as a writingV instrument, the conductor 6 and the tube 5 belowthe conductor fill with ink, the ink passingthrough the aperture in the lower part of the conductor to the tube 9 through which it flows to the bristles.

Even wlien'tlie pen is not in use, the ink remains in the tube 5 below the conductor 6, thus keeping the bristles moist and preventing their becoming stiif and dry. This small auxiliary reservoir also furnishes anv immediate supply for the flow of ink to the bristles when the brush is put to use.

Surrounding the bristles and servingV to 4hold them in positiongwith respect to the remainder of the structure is a conical open ended cap 10 having frictional engagement A closure 11 is provided for the lower part of the device, which includes the brisg tles, when the implement is not in use. The

closure 11, like the holder l, Vis preferably.

formed from a hard rubber substitute.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure byv Letters Patent is Y l. A fountain brush for making small characters, comprising a mainink reservoir, an auxiliary ink reservoir, means for conducting the ink from the main ink reservoir to the auxiliary ink reservoir, bristles carried by said auxiliary reservoir, and means for conducting the ink from the auxiliary ink reservoir to said bristles, both of said conducting means comprising elongated tubes having valveless conducting openings of minutecross section whereby'unobstructed communication between the reservoirs and bristles is maintained for keeping the bristles in moist condition.

2. In a fountain brush, a holder 'having a flexible ink reservoir therein,V a Vtube Seeuredto the lower end of said ink reservoir and detaohably connected to said holder,

an auxiliary ink reservoir communicating with said tube, a conducting tube extending into one end of said auxiliary reservoir and having a narrow opening-thereinto, bristles ilia-iy ink reservoir.

In testimony whereof I aix my signature.

WILLIAM K. RO CKMAN.
