Yet another lets-add-the-cream/soap/foam-directly-into-the-brush brush... this one invented by Mr Aubry F Stepelton back in 1929. Like all of these inventions it consists of a brush with a hole in the base, and a way to press the lather maker media into the brush.
Quote:In accordance with the present invention l the handle of the brush comprises a barrel erably engaged between said annular member and the sleeve of the cartridge and the barrel is preferably provided, at its lower end, with a part or member adapted to form a continuation of the sleeve of said cartridge to form a uniform bore for said piston.

 In short it is a lipstick holder mated to a brush. It lacks some of the over the top flair some of the other self lathering shaving brushes have.

Great find! 

It reminds me of the Gillette "Brush Plus System" that they made in the '80's. It came with an Atra and a brush that had soap filled cartridges. You plug the soap cartridge in the bottom and twist the knob (like a deodorant stick) and soap oozes into the brush. 

I have two of those in my collection as I recall my father using it.

Now, that is something! However, I still prefer the 'old-fashion' way; rub soap on face, then face-lather with brush!  Biggrin

Interesting concept but I prefer the way we do it now.
