To al lxw h om/it v I g Be it known'that' I, WILLIA S. Bnonaonn, a citizenot the United States, and a resident of Newark, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, haveinventednew and-useful Improvements in Combs, ofwhich' the following. is a full, clear, and" exactwspecifica; tion.* r I My invention relates to combs and refersparticularly to combs suitablerfor employment with short hair.

Combs suitable for retaining thejhair purposes of ornamentation usually carry a row of teeth, which, while effective in long hair due to the support given the comb by the curves, or turns, or. the hair mass lncident to 1ts arrangement, or

make-up, these combs are of little-and frequently of no value in employment with short hair, especially when the hair is straight and smooth.

Under these conditions, the usual combs of one row of teeth are practically useless, as g the short hairs present no holding means for the comb which, hence, can not be retained in place and is useless. I

Curved tooth combs have been suggested for this purpose, as have combs with two series of teeth, but none of these are of such construction as tomaintain the combjsufli-' ciently for practical purposes, as they pre-, means for the sent no binding, or holding, hair.

' I have found, however, that combs having two rows of teeth staggered with respect to each other, and especially when the teeth of at least one row are curved, will be held firmly by short hair, and that a comb of my 2 construction presents a means whereby a comb may be worn practically as firmly in short hair as the older combs can in long hair.

F ixedly attached to the back of the base 10 is a sub-base 14 carrying a plurality, or row,

Of teeth 15, 15, 15-curved inwardly at 16. a The base teeth 11, 11 andthe sub-base teeth 15,.15 are staggered with respect to I each other, as shown in Figure 2.

teeth 15,

15, 15 are along the curved line 18.

An ornamental top 17 may be carriedby the comb,if desired.

In'the modification of the comb of my invention, shown in Figure 4,each of the base teeth 11 has an outward curve 19 and the. sub-base teeth v20 are uncurved, the lower extremity of each sub-base tooth 20 being positioned slightly between two base teeth I 11, 11. The base teeth and the sub-base teeth are staggered with respect to each other.

- In the modification of-my device, shown.

in Figure 5, both the base teeth 21", 21 and the sub-base teeth 22, 22 are straight, staggered with respect to each other and the ilowerwextremity of each sub-base tooth is positioned slightly between two base teeth.

In the modification of-my device, shown 7 in Figurefi, the base-teeth 23 and the sub base teeth 2 1 are in parallel curves with respect to'eachother and staggered with respect to each other, the sub-base teeth 24 being curved at their .upper' extremity to form a curved jointure with the base 10.

It is evident that the sub-base may be as long as the base, if desired, and that the extremities of the sub-base teeth may terminate in a curve other than that shown in Figure 1, or may terminate in a straight line, and that the sub-base teeth need not be positioned between two base teeth.

do not limit-myself tothe particular size, shape, number, material, or arrangement, of parts, as shown and described, as these are given simply as a means for clearly describing my invention.

What I claim is 1. In a comb, in combination, a base, a row of undulated teeth carried by the base, a sub-base inwardly attached to the base and a, row of teeth carried by the sub-base staggered with respect to the base teeth, a portion of each sub-base tooth being in the plane of the base-teeth and the extremity of the sub-base tooth. being in front of the extremities of the base teeth.

2. In a comb, in combination, a curved base, a row of undulated teeth'carried by the base, a sub-base inwardly attached. to the base and a row of teeth carried by the subbase staggered with respect to the base teeth, a portion of each sub-base tooth being in the plane of the base-teeth and the extremity of the sub-base tooth being in front of the extremities of the base teeth.

3. In a comb, in combination, a curved base, a row of 'undulated teeth carried by the base, a sub-base inwardly attached to the base and a row of undulatedteeth carried by the sub-base staggered with respect to the base teeth, a portion of each sub-base tooth being in the planeof the base-teeth and the extremity of the sub-base tooth being in front of the extremities of the base teeth.

Signed at New York city in. the county of New York, and State of New York this 22nd day of May, 1924.
