S. ANASTASIA COMBINED SPONGE AND SOAP HOLDER Filed July 21, 1924 Patented Jan. 27, 1 925.
SAMUEL ANASTASIA, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.
COMBINED SPONGE AND SOAP HOLDER.
Application filed July 21,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL ANAsTASIA, a citizen of the United States, residing at Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and 'useful Improvements in a Combined Sponge and Soap Holder, of which the 'following is a specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in cleaning articles and has reference more particularly to a combined sponge and soap holder.
One of the important objects of the invention is to provide an article of the above mentioned character, which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and further very efficient in its use.
A further object of the invention is to provide an article of the above mentioned character, wherein the same is of such a construction as tabs-adapted to receive a cake of soap and removably support the same therein in such a manner as to have a portion of the soap exposed.
A further object of the invention is to provide an article of the above mentioned character, which includes a detachable holder or container for the same and the holder furthermore providing a handle when the article is in use. Y
Other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent during the course of the followingdescription.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals designate like parts throughout the same:
Figure 1 is a bottom plan view of my improved invention.
Figure 2 is a cross sectional view through the article, and Figure 3 is a side elevation thereof.
In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates generally my improved article and the same comprises a body portion formed of spongy rubber, the same being designated by the numeral 2 in the drawing. The porous body 2 is substantiall circular.
Arranged in the bottom of t e porous. body -2 is the pocket 3. The pocket is lined with a non-porous elastic material and is vulcanized in the central portion of the bot- 1924. Serial No. 727,266.
the pocket and the same extends substantially flush with the bottom of the spongy body 2. This construction permits a cake of soap to be readily and easily inserted in the pocket, the flange 5 tending-to hold the soap in position therein against accidental displacement therefrom yet enabling the bottom face of the cake of soap to be exposed.
Extending over the upper portion of the body 2 and removably fitted thereon is the celluloid cap 6. The celluloid cap not only provides a container for the upper portion of the porous body but also provides a handle for facilitating the manipulation of the article when in use.
It will thus be seen from the foregoing description, that an article has been provided which combines a sponge with cake of soap for saving considerable time and labor in the use of the elements. Furthermore the simplicity in which my improved article may be constructed enables the parts to be readily disassembled when thesame have become worn and replaced with new portions.
While I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, it 1s to be understood that various changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described the invention, what '4 I,claim is 1. An article of the class described comprising a body of spongy rubber, apocket in the bottom of the body and adapted to removably support a cake of soap therein, said pocket being lined with non-porous elastic material, and a cap fitting over the upper portion of the body and providing a handle.
2. An article of the class described comprising a body of spongy rubber, a pocket arranged in the bottom thereof and adapted to receive a cake of soap, said pocket being lined with non-porous elastic material, a flange formed on the bottom edge of the pocket for retaining'the cake of soap there- 1n and permitting thebotto'm face of the cake of soap to be disposed. 3. An article'of the class described com- 5 prisinga body of spongy rubber; a ooket arranged in the bottom thereof and a apted to receive a cake of soap, said pocket being lined with non-porous elastic material, a
flange formed on the bottom edge of the pocket for retaining the cake of soap there- In and permitting the bottom face of the cake of soa to be disposed, and a cup shaped mem r fitting over the upper por tion of the bodyand providing a handle.
In testimony whereof I aflix m si nature.
SAMUEL ANA T SIA.
