Description

Jan. 10, 1967 z-:.- v. AYLOTT 3,296,642

COSMETIC BRUSHES Filed April 1, 1965 X4; 21M, 34M M B ATTORNL'YS United States Patent 3,296,642 COSMETIC BRUSHES Eric Victor Aylott, Welwyn Garden City, England. assignor to Eylure Limited, Welwyn Garden City, England, a British company Filed Apr. 1, 1965, Ser. No. 444,574 1 Claim. (Cl. 15-185) This invention is concerned with the provision of what may be called a cosmetic brush by which I mean a brush specially adapted for use in the application of cosmetics to the person. Brushes are needed for the application of many different cosmetics and especially for the application of eye shade or colour to eyelashes, eyelids and colour above the eyes. Such brushes are very often called eyeliner brushes and in the present specification we shall hereinafter refer in more detail to an eyeliner brush by way of example.

According to the present invention I provide a folding brush comprising a channel shaped body member and two fiaps pivotally secured in position at each end of the channel, one fiap comprising a brush member and the other flap being a cover the arrangement being such that when the folding brush is in its closed position the brush member is disposed within the channel and the flap is disposed over the brush member so that the brush member is enclosed within a case and is protected.

In order that the invention may be more clearly understood and readily carried into effect reference is now directed to the accompanying drawings given by way of example.

FIG. 1 is a side view of the brush closed.

FIG. 2 is a side view of the brush partly opened.

FIG. 3 is a side view of the brush fully opened.

FIG. 4 is a top plan view of the brush closed.

FIG. 5 is a top plan view of the brush open.

FIG. 6 is a perspective view showing the brush in use.

The brush comprises a body 1 and two end flaps 2 and 3, the end flap 2 being a cover flap and the end flap 3 being a brush flap. The body 1 is a channel shaped member with side walls 4 and 5 and a bottom 6. The side walls 4 and 5 project at each end beyond the bottom 6 and the flaps 2 and 3 are pivotally mounted between the projecting side walls as can be seen clearly in FIG- URES 2 and 3. The flap 2 simply comprises a cover but the flap 3 includes a handle part 7 and a brush part 8 with bristles or hairs 9.

Assuming that the parts are in the position shown in FIGURE 3 the brush may be closed by turning the brush flap 3 counter-clockwise into the position shown in FIG- URE 2 and then into the position shown in FIGURE 1 with the handle part 7 and the brush part 8 disposed within the channel shaped body member 1. The dimensions are such that a certain amount of pressure is required to push the brush flap into its closed position. When in its closed position it is held there by friction of the side walls against the handle part 7. When the movement of the brush flap is complete the cover flap 2 is turned in a clockwise direction in FIGURES 2 and 3 until the cover flap is in position to protect and cover the brush as shown in FIGURE 4. Once again a certain amount of pressure is needed to push the cover flap into its fully closed position so that it is held there by friction. It will be noted that the handle part of the brush flap is stepped at 10 and when the parts are closed the flap 2 overlaps the step 10, as illustrated in dotted lines in FIGURE 4, to give an effective closure. The two flaps are so dimensioned that in the closed position the inner ends are disposed closely adjacent to one another for the same purpose.

When opening the brush the flap 2 is opened first and the flap 3 afterwards. Each flapcan be turned until the projecting ends A and B of the flap abuts against the bottom of the channel shaped member as illustrated in FIGURE 3 which shows the fully open position.

One advantage of this brush is that it is fully protected when in the closed position. Another advantage is that the brush may be used mainly by holding the body 1 with the index finger on the upwardly projecting part A of the handle 7 so that the eyes may be made up without the hand being directly in the Way since the application of the cosmetic may be effected from the side.

I claim:

A folding cosmetic brush comprising a channel shaped body member having a bottom wall and two side walls which project at each end beyond the bottom wall; a brush flap pivoted to the body member at one end of the body member between the protecting side walls and including a handle section which is relatively thick, a brush holder which is relatively thin, a step portion joining the handle section to the brush holder and a brush projecting axially at the end of the brush holder; the brush flap being angularly displaceable on its pivot from an open position in which the brush is ready for use to a closed position in which the brush and brush holder are disposed within the channel shaped body member with the brush lying along the channel and in which the handle section of the brush flap is disposed between the walls of the body member and is substantially flush with the top surface of the walls; a cover flap including a cover terminating in a free end, the said cover flap being pivoted to the body member at the end of the channel opposite the pivot of the brush flap and between the protecting side walls, said cover flap being angularly displaceable on its pivot from an open position to a closed position in which the free end of the cover flap seats against said step portion in the brush flap so that the brush is fully protected; an extension on the brush flap projecting outwardly beyond the end of the side walls of the body member to abut against the botom to act as a stop when the brush flap is in its fully open position and an extension on the cover flap projecting outwardly beyond the end of the side walls of the body member to abut against the bottom to act as a stop when the cover flap is in its fully open position.
