EARL E. STANFIELD, OF HELENA, MONTANA.
HAIR-DRESSING- Application filed April 8,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EARL E. STANFIELD, a citizen of the United States, residing at- Helena, in the county of Lewis and Clark and State of Montana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Hair-Dressing-Mirror Device, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to 1 a hair dressing mirror device and has for its prin cipal object to provide a plurality of mirror panels which are adjustable in relation to each other.
Another important object of the invention is to provide a device of this nature including means for holding the mirror panels in adjusted positions.
Another object of the invention is to generally improve upon hair dressing mirror devices of this nature by providing a. simple and eflicient structure, one which is reliable in operation, inexpensive to manufacture, and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With the above and numerous other objects in .view, the invention resides in certain novel features of construction, and the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the drawing Figure 1 is a perspective of the device embodying my invention,
Figure 2 is a side elevation thereof showing the stand in vertical section,
Figure 3 is a horizontal section taken substantially on the line 8-3 of Figure 2,
Fi re t is a detailed perspective of one of the adjusting devices,
Figure 5 is a perspective of one of the other adjusting devices, and
Figure 6 is a perspective of the main supporting bar.
Referring tothe drawing in detail it will be seen that 1 designates a base having a standard 2 projecting vertically therefrom and provided with a longitudinally extending bore 3 which is adapted to receive the standard bar 4 so that the same may be vertically adjusted and held in place by a set screw 5. The upper end of the standard bar 4 is provided with a groove 6 and a block 7 having a vertical b'ore therein is received on theupper end of this standard bar 4: so that the set screw 8 may engage the groove MIRROR DEVICE.

(3 thus preventing the accidental removal of the block and at the same time allowing it to be locked on the standard bar 4 when desired. I
A horizontally extending arm 9 is mounted on the block 7 and at its end has a transversely extending pin passing therethrough. The-main mirror frame 10 supports on its rear face in registry with each other a pair of sleeves 11 which are adapted to receive the pin 12 that extends through the arm 9 so that this main mirror frame 10 will be in pivotal relation with respect to the arm 9. A plate 13 extends upwardly from the block 7 and is provided with a pair of apertures adapted to receive the ends: of the U- shaped adjustable brace 14 which is formed of resilient wire and the ends thereof are adapted to be spaced farther from each other when free than when passing through the apertures in the plate 13 so that there will be a frictional engagement between the plate and the brace 14. The intermediate portion of this brace 14 is pivotally received in the sleeve 15 mounted at the upper end of the main mirror frame 10. A pair of side mirror frames 17 are hingedly mounted on the side edges of the main mirror frame by suitable hinge members 18 and a U-shaped brace 19 is associated with each being understood that the brace 19 is formed of some resilient wire. Suitable mirrors 23 are mounted in the mirror frames 10 and 17 and may be held therein in any preferred manner.
From the above description it will be seen that the frames 10 and 17 may be adjusted in relation to each other merely by pushing the side frames 17 to the desired positions and also that the main frame 10 may be pivoted horizontally intermediate its ends. 1
The height of the mirror frames may be changed at will by loosening the set screw 5 and moving the standard bar 4; vertically in relation to the standard 2 and the block 7 may be revolved on the standard bar at w a The 90 by loosening the set screw 8 and held in fixed position by tightening, on the set screw 8.
The preferred structure of my invention has been disclosed with some degree of particularity, but it is to be understood that numerous changes in the detailsof construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
Having thus described my What I claim as new is 1. In combination, a main frame, a pair of side frames hinged thereto, a. pair of resilient U-shaped braces pivot-ally mounted on the mainframe, anda pair of apertured plates mounted on the side frames for re ceiving the braces whereby the side frames may be held in adjusted position in relation to the main frame due to resiliency of the braces.
2. In combination, a standard, a. frame pivoted on the standard, a resilient U-shaped brace pivotally mounted on the main frame, an apertured plate mounted on the stand ard for receiving the ends of the brace, whereby the frame may be held in adjusted position due to resiliency of the brace.
3. In combination, a. standard, an arm invention extending horizontally from the standard, a mirror frame pivotally mounted intermediate its ends on the arm, an apertured plate extending from the standard, and a. resilient U-shaped brace pivotally mounted on the mirror frame and passing through the apertures of the plate, whereby the mirror frame may be held in adjusted position due to resiliency of the brace.
4. In combination, a standard, a main frame pivoted on the standard, a plate having apertures therein extending from the standard, a resilient U-shaped brace pivoted to the main frame and passing through the plate, a pair of auxiliary frames hinged to the main frame, a pair of resilient U-shaped braces pivoted to the main frame, apair of apertured plates on the auxiliary frames, said second mentioned braces passing through the apertures of said second mentioned plates whereby the frames may be held in adjusted positions in relation to the standard and in relation to each other due to resiliency of the braces.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
