Application filed August 6, 1919.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, RALPH CHURCH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Shulls Mills, in the county of Watauga and State of North Carolina, have invented new and useful Improvements in Fountain- Brushes, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to fountain brushes especially adapted for painters use to avoid carrying a paint bucket about with him all of the time and frequently dipping the brush in the paint.

The object of my invention is to provide a particularly strong and durable fountain paint brush embodying in connection with the brush body and a paint reservoir, a novel brush head which forms an effective support and brace for said reservoir, the

latter being of suoli formation and arrangement with respect to the brush head and handle as to adapt it to be handily refilled with paint as required.

IVith the above and other objects in view, the invention consists of the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure l is side elevation of the brush.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary section through the reservoir and brush head.

The body l of the brush, composed of bristles or hair is held by means of a binder or clamping band 2 to the brush head 3, the latter having a handle el. projecting centrally therefrom, as shown.

At one side of the handle, the brush head 3 is cut away to form a two sided or L-shaped shaped seat 5 in which is placed a box-like paint reservoir or can 6 held in place by bands 7 embracing the same and the handle el., or by equivalent fastening means. The outer side of the can 6 lies Hush with the adjacent side or edge of the brush head and is protected thereby.

The reservoir or can 6 has on its outer side Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 27, 1920.

Serial No. 315,631.

a filling nozzle 8 normally sealed by a detachable cap 9 enabling the reservoir to be filled while the brush handle is in a horizontal position so that the paint will not eed by gravity to the bristles. The bottom of the reservoir is formed with a paint outlet 10 which communicates with feed ducts 1l to lead the paint to the brush body and properly distribute the paint thereto.

I'Vithin the reservoir 6 is an expressing piston l2 operable by a plunger rod 13 having a head or thumbpiece 14 between which and the top of the reservoir is placed a compression spring l5 acting to uplift the piston when relieved of external pressure, to facilitate refilling the reservoir. Vhen more paint is required to be forced to the bristles, the operator dresses inwardly on the plunger head causing the piston to express the paint through the outlet l() and ducts ll whereby it is distributed to the bristles of the body l. The brush and reservoir may be cleaned by introducing any suitable cleaning liquid in the reservoir 6 and pumping the same through the ducts ll vhile rubbing the brush over a suitable surace.

Having thus fully described my invention, I claim A. fountain paint brush comprising a brush body, a brush head, a handle projecting centrally from the brush head, the latter being cut away flush with one side of the handle to form an L-shaped seat, a paint reservoir arranged and fastened in said seat and having its outer side flush with the corresponding face of the brush head and also having a filling nozzle on said outer side, and a spring-retracted plunger-operated expressing piston in said reservoir, the latter ha ving an outlet in its bottom, and the brush head having paint-distributing ducts leading from said outlet to different points in the brush body.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
