W. HARMON vAfiITY some Filed Feb. 17, 1959 M preferred Patented Feb. 20, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE The present invention relates to toilet and personal appearance make-up contrivances and has reference in particular to what may be convencomb, that is, a multiple part assembly characterized by a finger-nail file equipped comb having a container for a cosmetic vial or the like.

To beuse, I am sumclently conversant with the art to which the invention relates to realize that so-called traveler's or pocket type combs have been devised to serve as foundations for utility combination comb.

Manifestly, my object is to generally improve upon prior art and marketed structures with which I am familiar and to this end I have adequately accomplished my purpose by way of a unique composite assemblage characterized by simplicity and economy and distinct in that the companion accessories are more cleverly and skillfully attached and arranged.

In the accompanying drawing illustrating the embodiment of the invention and wherein like numerals are employed to designate like corresponding details throughout the views:

Figure 1 is a view partly in section and partly in elevation showing the unitary assemblage, the features being organized and fixedly related in accordance with the principles of this invention.

Figure 2 is what may be called a top plan view or perhaps an edge elevational view, however it is looked upon.

Figure 3 is an end elevation, that is, a view observing Figures 1 and 2 in a direction from left to right.

Referring now to the drawing, it will be observed that the essential part is in the form of a unitary body of rubber or equivalent composition material, the same being characterized in particular by a comb 4. This comprises a series of fine teeth 5 and coarser teeth 6, these being adjolned in parallelism in conventional fashion to the so-called back I. In the present instance the back is provided on one side of the median lonhas its p oint Hi terminating at a place about even with the right hand end of the comb. The opposite shank portion is rigidly secured by suitable fasteners Ii to a riser i2a formed integral with the central or crown portion of the back 1. Also tegral with integrated at this point is a hollow receptacle or cylinder II, this being open at the left hand end and internally screw-threaded to accommodate a removable plug-style cap or closure ll. By this arrangement I provide a convenient receptacle for 5 a vial or the like ll. The part I may well be nail polish, or some other cosmetic, as is evident. Obviously, what I have in mind is the reshaping fore, a more lengthy description is thought unnecessary.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been shown and described, it is to be 95 understood that minor changes coming within the field of invention claimed may be resorted to if desired.

I claim- 1. A composite pocket-style utility assemblage of the class described comprising a unitary body having longitudinally spaced teeth extending at right angles from one longitudinal edge thereof, the opposite longitudinal edge being provided at its center with a socketed outstanding lug, a rela- 35 tively shallow groove on one side of the lug terminating at a point inwardly of an adjacent transverse end of said a cylinder formed insaid last named longitudinal edge of the body, the cylinder being open at its outer end 4 and closed and integral with said lug at its opposite lnner end and a nail file having its inner end telescoping into the socket in said lug and fixed in said socket, one edge of the file being seated in said groove, the file at its outer end being 5 pointed, and said pointed end projecting beyond the adjacent end of the groove and terminating :fiush with the adjacent transverse end of said body, one longitudinal edge of the pointed end being spaced from the adjacent surface oi the 50 longitudinal edge of the body to provide an intervening v-shaped crotch.

2. A composite pocket-style utility assemblage of the class described comprising a unitary body having longitudinally spaced teeth extending at u right angles from one longitudinal edge thereof, the opposite longitudinal edge being provided at its center with a socketed outstanding lug, a relatively shallow groove on one side of the lug terminating at a point inwardly of an adJacent transverse end of said body, and a nail file having its inner end telescoping into the socket in said lug and fixed in said socket, one edge of the file being seated in said groove, the file at its outer end being pointed, and said pointed end projecting beyond the adjacent end of the groove and terminating flush with the adjacent transverse end of said body, one longitudinal edge 01' the pointed end being spaced from the adjacent surface of the longitudinal edge of the body to provide an intervening V-shaped crotch.
