To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, George Bohner, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mustache-Trainers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification.
The present invention relates to that class of appliances which are worn for a short interval of time over a person's mustache, and usually during the time of making one's toilet, to train the mustache in the desired direction.
The object of the present improvement is to provide a simple, convenient, and efficient appliance for such use in which means for initially bringing the mustache to proper condition and position are combined with a pliant compress for positively compressing and training the mustache in the desired direction, all as will hereinafter more fully appear. I attain such object by the construction and arrangement of parts illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
Similar numerals of reference indicate like parts in the different views.
Referring to the drawings,
The present invention comprehends, broadly, the combination, with the described type of pliant compress, of one or more comb members
In use the comb members will be inserted into the mustache to bring the same into the proper condition and desired direction, after which the pliant compress member will be drawn over the mustache and combs and secured in place in the usual manner to maintain a compressive action upon the mustache for the proper period of time.
Having thus fully described my said invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a mustache-trainer, the combination of a pliant compress member, and a pair of combs attached to such member, one on each side of a central point whereby the two branches of the mustache are engaged, substantially as set forth.
2. In a mustache-trainer, the combination of a pliant compress member, and a pair of combs attached loosely thereto by means of flaps, and with the combs attached one on each side of a central point, whereby the two branches of the mustache are engaged, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof witness my hand this 6th day of September, 1899.
In presence of—
M. H. Holmes.
