BATH-SPRAY.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters PatentNo. 757,791, dated April 19, 1904,

Application filed November 10, 1903. Serial No. 180,601. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, VICTOR C. VANT WoUD, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bath-Sprays; 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 IO it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention consists in the novel features hereinafter described with reference to the accompanying drawings, which show one form in which I have contemplated embodying said 5 invention, and the invention is fully disclosed in the following description and claims.

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 represents a side view of a bath-spray embodying my invention, the spraying-head being shown partly in section. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the spraying-head. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of a slightly-modified form of the invention.

As shown in the drawings, my improved bath-spray consists of a hollow head A, of

5 molded soft rubber, the lower circular face of which is provided .yvith a plurality of projections a, formed integrally therewith and preferably tapering from their'bases to their outer ends. The contiguouswall of the head A is 3 provided with a plurality of spraying-apertures a, which are located between the bases of the said projections. The location of these apertures is important, as by locating them between the bases of the projections the outward flow of water will produce a strong spray even while the projections are in contact with the flesh, and the water issuing from said apertures will keep the said projections thoroughly clean throughout their length. Furthermore,

4 the apertures themselves will not become clogged on account of the continuous stream of water issuing therefrom. The head A is suitably connected to a supply-pipe B of any desired length, the opposite end of which is also, preferably, provided with a coupling 0 for engaging a spigot or tap in the usual manner.

In Fig. 3 I have shown a slight modification of my invention. In this figure the body of the head is made in two parts, the back portion A being formed of metal or hard rubber or other non-elastic material and provided, preferably, around its periphery with an annular projection or bead a to hold the other part in engagement therewith. A represents the front part of the body, which is made of soft rubber and constructed to slip over the peripheral portion of the back portion A. The peripheral part of the front portion A is also, preferably, provided with an annular bead a to engage the head a of the other part to hold the two parts firmly together. I do not limit myself to this exact construction, as the two parts may be made with other forms of interlocking devices to give them a firm hold'upon each other when placed in engagement. ble projections and apertures a between the bases of said projections, as previously described with reference to Figs. 1 and 2.

By making the head in the manner just described the front part A which is exposed to wear and which being made of necessity of soft rubber will deteriorate with age, can be detached and a new piece substituted without renewing the entire device.

It is obvious that in the manufacture of the device shown in Fig. 3 the two parts may be vulcanized together, if found desirable; but I prefer to attach them by simply springing the part A over the part A, as before described.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

l. A bath-spray comprising among its members, a hollow body composed of a non-flexible back portion and a flexible front portion constructed to engage the back portion, and provided with a series of flexible integral projections and apertures located between the bases of said projections, substantially as described.

2. A bath-spray comprising among its members, a hollow body composed of a non-flexible back portion and a flexible front portion The part A is provided with the flexiconstructed to engage the back portion, and

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in provided with a series of flexible integral prothe presence of two Witnesses. jections and apertures located between the bases of said projections, said 'front and back portions being provided with interlocking devices to hold them firmly in engagement, substantially as described.

VICTOR C. VANT WOUD.
