To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John Albert Moore, of Cambridgeport, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and Improved Mustache-Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved device for holding the mustache raised while eating, so that the mustache cannot come in contact with the food that is being passed into the mouth.
The invention consists in a mustache-holder formed of a comb, to one side of which a spring-frame, having curved arms, is attached, which is raised, and then the comb is passed through the mustache and the spring-frame released, so that the mustache will be held between the comb and the spring-frame, whereby the moustache will be held raised, so that it cannot come in contact with the food being passed into the mouth.
The invention also consists in details of construction, as will be fully described hereinafter.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
To a small piece of comb,
To fasten the holder on the mustache, the free end of the prong
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a mustache-holder, the combination, with the comb
2. In a mustache-holder, the combination, with the comb
