No. 774,990. PATENTED NOV. 15, 1904.





UNITED STATES Patented November 15, 1904.




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No; 774,990. dated November 15, 1904.

A li ation filed April 15, 1904. Serial No, 203,248. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ALBERT EUGENE NEW- TON, of Leorninster, in the county of Worcester and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Pompadour-Dip-Pufl' Combs; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same.

This invention relates to toilet articles, and particularly to a class thereunder known as combs.

An object of this inventionvis to produce a comb to be utilized in dressing the hair, the said comb to be fixed in the hair for supporting a portion of the hair to produce a pompadour.

It is further the object of this invention to produce a comb of the character noted in which the dip of the pampadour may be changed by adjusting one end of the supporting member to a greater or less degree away from the comb proper.

Furthermore, an object of the invention is to provide novel means whereby the hair-supporting member may be held at diflferent positions of adjustment.

With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the details of construction and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and specifically claimed.

In describing the invention in detail reference will be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, wherein like characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views, in which Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a comb and the adjustable support applied thereto, the said support being in its lowermost position or approximately parallel with the comb. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the support farther away from the comb than is shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is asimilar view showing the support held at its greatest distance from the comb.

In the drawings, A denotes the comb,which is preferably curved longitudinally to approximately the contour of the head of a wearer.

The support B, which coacts with the comb A, is preferably curved to conform to the contour of the comb and has its end Z) curved back on the portion B to a slight degree and then terminates in a foot I), which'is pivoted to the comb. The foot has a movement on the pivot sidewise with relation to the comb, and owing to the curved portion 6 and the resiliency of the material of which the support is formed there is a considerable yielding action, which permits the end of the support remote from the pivot to yield sufficiently to assume an elevated position with respect to the comb, thus permitting a change in the incline of the said support, which is necessary in providing for different degrees of dip for the pompadour. The support B has a compound curve 6 and terminates in an ear 6 which has a hole to receive the pivot 6*.

The supportB is moved with relation to the comb and is held at its different adjustments by means of the arm C, which comprises in its construction two links of approximately the same length, the said links being pivoted together at their meeting ends, and the outer end of one link is mounted on the pivot o of the member B, while the outer end of the opposite link is pivoted to the comb A by means of the pivot C, which passes through the said link and comb.

The end of the comb A to which the link is pivoted is bent so that it is approximately parallel with the inner surface of the ear 6 in order that the links comprising the arm C move against the surfaces of the comb and ear. If this construction were absent, there would be more or less vibration of the arm on its pivots,'-which would result in undue wear on the parts. The relation of the members just described is well illustrated in Fig. 1.

Having fully described the invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure'by Letters Patent, is-

1. In a pompadour attachment for combs, a comb, a hair-supporting device, having one end curved back on itself and terminating in a foot, said foot being pivoted to the comb, the opposite end of the supporting device, being provided with a compound curve terminating in an ear, and two links pivoted together at their meeting ends and at their opposite ends to the comb and ear of the supporting device respectively.

2. In a pompadour attachment, a comb, a hair-supporting device having one end pivotally secured to the comb, and means secured to the free end of the support and comb whereby the free end of the support may be adjusted With relation to the com b to permit a variance in the dip of the pompadour.

3. In a pompadour attachment, a comb, a hair-supporting device pivoted at one end to the comb, an ear on the opposite end of the supporting device, said ear being bent parallel With the comb, a pivoted connection between A. EUGENE NEWTON.
