SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 278,999, dated June 5, 1883.
\ Application filed November 2, 1882. (No model.)
formed of a comb, to one side of which a springframe, having curved arms, is attached, which is raised, and then the comb is passed through the mustache and the spring-frame released, so that the mustache will be held between the comb and the spring-frame, whereby the moustache will be held raised, so that it cannot come in contact with the food being passed into the mouth.
The invent-ion also consists in details of con struction, as will be fully described hereinafter.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate cor responding parts in all the figures.
' Figure 1 shows the manner of applying and using my improved mustacheholder. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal elevation of my improved mustache-holder. Fig. 8 is a cross-sectional elevation of the same.
To a small piece of comb, A, made of some suitable material, a spring-prong, B, is attached at the backthat is, at the base of the'teeth in such amanner thatthe free end of the prong projects a short distance above the free ends or free end of the prong B is drawn from the comb,
and the latter is passed through the mustache, whereupon the spring-prong is released and the mustache will be pressed between the comb and the spring-frame, and will thus be prevented from dropping over the lips. The mustache will thus be out of the way while eating and cannot come in contact with the food that is being passed into the month. One holder is used for each end of the mustache.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a mustache-holder, the combination, with the comb A, of the spring-prong B, attached to the same and provided with curved arms 0, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
2. In a mustache-holder, the combination,
with the comb A, of the spring-prong B, attached to the same and provided with curved arms 0, having cross-pieces D at the ends, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
