COMBINED SHAVING BRUSH AND INSTANT LATHER CONTAINER Oct. 5, 1965 Filed Dec. 26, 1961 R 7 H ww KW irraF/VE' United States Patent 3,209,769 COMBINED SHAVING BRUSH AND INSTANT LATHER CONTAINER Andr F. Gobin, 1716 Putnam Ave., Brooklyn 27, NY. Filed Dec. 26, 1961, Ser. No. 162,021 1 Claim. (Cl. 13281) My invention is directed toward shaving implements of the type wherein a shaving brush and a container of shaving cream or lather are integrally or detachably secured to each other.

It is an object of my invention to provide a new type of shaving implement of the character indicated.

Another object of my invention is to provide a new type of shaving implement of the character indicated in which a shaving brush and a container of instant shaving lather are atfixed together to form an integral unit.

Still another object of my invention is to provide a new type of shaving implement of the character indicated in which a shaving brush and a container of instant shaving lather are detachably secured together.

All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of my invention will either be explained or will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:

FIGURE 1 is a side view of the invention;

FIGURE 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view taken along the line 22 in FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 shows a modified form of the invention; and

FIGURE 4 is a top plan view of FIG. 1 of the invention.

Referring now to FIGURES 1 and 2, there is shown a container of instant shaving lather 10. Provided at the upper end of the container is a cap 11 having a central opening 11 in the top thereof. A valve unit 12 including a diaphragm valve for controlling the passage of shaving lather from the container through the opening 11 in the cap is mounted in the cap and at top of container 10. A hollow metal tube 14 extends between the top of valve 12 and an interior region of a shaving brush 16. As shown in FIGURES 2 and 4, it will be seen that the bristles of brush 16 made of bristle hair or nylon, are arranged in the holder 20 to provide an axial cylindrical opening 17 that extends from the end of the bristles within the holder to the outermost end of the bristles. It is to be noted that the holder 20 is cup-shaped to provide a bottom, and that the spreader ring 18 is spaced from the bottom of the holder 20. A metal spreader 18 is fused or pressed over tube 14, the spreader 18 being in the form of an annular ring that completely bridges the annular space between the delivery tube 14 and the cylindrical wall of bristles as defined by the cylindrical opening 17, as clearly shown in FIGURE 2; the spreader ring 18 being located on the delivery tube 14 so as to lie wholly within the confines of the holder 20. The function of the spreader ring 18 is to prevent inward collapsing of the bristles of the brush thereby permit the easy flow of the shaving cream of lather to the outward end of the shaving brush.

Brush 16 is secured within a holder 20 (which can be a plastic or rubberized material) by sealing Wax or its equivalent. A rubber washer 22 is pressed into holder 20.

ice

The lower end portion of tube 14, see FIG. 3, projects below the holder 20 which in the connection of the holder with the container 10 extends through the central opening 11 in the cap 11, see FIG. 2, with its terminal end initially lying adjacent to the diaphragm valve. To provide the brush 16 with lather, the holder 20 is pushed downwardly so that the terminal end of the tube 14 will engage and deflect the diaphragm valve to permit the discharge of lather into tube 14 to thereby charge brush 16 with such lather. After the brush is charged, brush 16, tube 14 and holder 20 are removed from the container 10 (automatically closing valve 12), and the charged brush can be used for shaving as shown in FIGURE 3.

Alternatively, the entire arrangement of FIGURES 1 and 2 can be integral, which case, the user holds both the container 10 and the holder 20 while applying lather to his face.

The container shown in the figures does not have its own supply tube. Certain containers have a supply tube which extends out of the container end. In this case, the tube 14 is entered into the extended container tube with a rocking side-to-side motion, thus allowing the brush to be charged with lather. When the brush is fully charged, the rocking motion is stopped, and tube 14, brush 16 and holder 20, can be removed in the manner described above.

While my invention has been described with particular reference to the construction shown in the drawings, it is to be understood that such is not to be construed as imparting limitations upon the invention which is best defined by the claim appended hereto.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

A shaving cream dispenser and applicator comprising:

(a) a container for storing shaving cream under pressure having an outlet opening;

(b) a cap secured to said container having a central aperture in axial registry with said outlet opening;

(c) a flexible diaphragm valve between said cap and outlet opening normally closed to prevent the passage of shaving cream from said outlet opening into said central aperture for discharge therethrough;

(d) a removable cup-shaped brush holder having brush bristles extending therefrom arranged to provide an axial cylindrical opening extending the full length of said bristles from end to end;

(e) a shaving cream delivery tube of a diameter less than said cylindrical opening positioned axially within said brush holder having one end portion projecting from the bottom thereof and the other end portion extending axially through the cylindrical opening of the brush bristles;

(i) an annular rigid spreader ring fixedly secured to said delivery tube and positioned within the confines of said holder in spaced relation to the bottom thereof and completely bridging the annular space between said delivery tube and the wall of said cylindrical opening as defined by said bristles, to prevent inward collapsing of said brush bristles;

(g) said brush holder formed to have mating engagement with said cap and when seated thereon the projecting end of the delivery tube will extend through the cap aperture with its terminal end in juxtaposition to said diaphragm valve, whereby on 3,209,769 3 4 the application of axial pressure to said brush holder 2,764,772 10/56 Staskowski et a1. 132-81 the projecting end of the delivery tube will engage 2,806,238 9/57 Wisey. said diaphragm valve to flex the same inwardly so 2,849,737 9/ 58 Piccinini et al. as to open the same and permit the flow of a charge 2,897,526 8/59 Dootson. of shaving cream into said delivery tube for dis- 5 2,913,749 11/59 Ayres 222394 charge into the cylindrical opening in the brush bristles, said diaphragm valve closing when said brush FOREIGN liArrENTs holder is removed from said container. 210,843 2/24 Great Bntaln- 819,682 7/37 France.
