To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Abraham Stein, a citizen of Russia, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mustache-Curlers, of which the following is a full and complete specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
The object of this invention is to provide a clamp device for use as a mustache-curler and which in practice is placed on the ends of the mustache after the latter has been curled by hand and which is designed to remain in this position for a short length of time, so as to crimp and hold the mustache in a curled condition after the clamp has been removed; and with this and other objects in view the invention consists in a device of the class specified constructed as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawings forming part of this specification, in which the separate parts of my improvement are designated by the same reference characters in each of the views,
In the practice of my invention I provide a device of the class specified which consists of two members
Wound on the pivot-pin
This device may be made of very light material and is in practice made very small and is well adapted to accomplish the result for which it is intended and is also comparatively inexpensive.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire. to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A mustache-curler composed of two pivotally-connected spring-operated jaws one of which is yoke-shaped in cross-section and opens in the direction of the other jaw and is adapted to bear thereon, said last-named jaw being provided with an upwardly-directed portion which fits in the yoke-shaped jaw, substantially as shown and described.
2. A mustache-curler comprising two members pivotally connected and spring-operated, said members being each provided with a jaw one of which is yoke-shaped and opens in the direction of the other, the other jaw being provided with a portion which projects into the yoke-shaped jaw, and said members being provided with portions which project in the direction opposite to that of said jaws, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of the subscribing witnesses, this 12th day of August, 1901.
