To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Thore J. Hagen, a citizen of the United States, residing at Grand Forks, in the county of Grand Forks and State of North Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mustache-Guards; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the i invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to guards for protecting the mustache from contact with the food which is being passed into the mouth in eating.
The object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which is simple in construction, light and durable, easily applied and removed, and effective for its intended purpose.
In the accompanying drawings,
The guard comprises in its construction two members
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the construction and mode of use of my improved mustache-guard will be readily understood and it will be seen that a simple and effective device for the stated purpose is provided.
The guard may be made of any suitable material which will insure strength and lightness and may be as ornamental as desired.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
A mustache-guard comprising two sections or members, each consisting of a guard-plate provided with apertured ears, a rod extending through said ears and pivotally connecting the comb-plate to the guard-plate, said rod being headed at one end to prevent disconnection and provided with an eye at its opposite end, a spring coacting with the rod to hold the comb-plate normally closed against the guard-plate, and a link connecting the eye of the rod of one section or member of the guard with the eye of the other section or member of the guard, thus movably connecting said members together.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Thore J. Hagen.
