LIGHTING DEVICE FOR TOILET-MIRRORS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 388.3%6, dated August 21, 1888.
To all whom it 72mg concern:
Be it known that I, HOWARD S. DUFF, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvements in Lighting Devices for Toilet-Mirrors, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a simple, cheap, and efficient form of combined toilet-mirror and gas or electric light fixture; and this object I attain in the manner which I will now proceed to describe, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which-- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a combined toilet-mirror and lighting device constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a front view of the same.
In Figs. 1 and 2, A represents a socket which is adapted to fit snugly over an ordinary gasburner, the socket being preferably lined with rubber in order to make a tight fit. From the upper end of this socket extend two branches, B B, which, after spreading laterally to such an extent as to receive between them the toilet- Inirror F, are carried outward and forward, so as to form wings D, extending somewhat in advance of the face of the mirror and terminating in burners a of any suitable character. The mirror F is provided with opposite trunnions b, which are adapted to sockets d on the branches B, so that the mirror is free to swing and assume any desired angle, the opposite burners insuring the equal lighting of both sides of the face.
The combination of the mirror F, having 5 opposite projecting trunnions b, the central supporting-post, A, constituting a socket for application to a gas burner, the branches B, spreading laterally from the upper end of said post to receive between them the lower portion of the mirror, and having sockets d for the reception of the trunnions, wings D, extending laterally beyond the mirror and terminating in burners a, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
HOWARD S. DUFF.
