PATENTED JAN. 24,.1905.



v Wits Imam atmmtg UNITED STATES.

Patented January 24, 1905.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 780,616, dated January 24, 1905.

Application filed April 7,1904. Serial No. 202,116.

T0 on whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, DAVID H. PALMER, a citizen of the United States, residing at La Crosse, in the county of La Crosse and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Facial Robes or Masks; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others-skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to facial robes or flexible masks or face coverings used to improve the wearers complexion and the texture of her skin; and it consists in the construction and combination of parts hereinafter more particularly set forth and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective View of the robe as applied to the face of a person. Fig. 2 represents a sectional view on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 represents a rear view of the robe, showing the normal position of the flaps before they are applied to the face; and Fig. 4

represents a sectional view on the line 4 4 of Fig. 3.

A designates a facial robe of soft fabric medicated to act on the wearers skin, sweating and softening it, removing pimples, and generally improving the complexion. In this robe I cut a slit 0 in the form of an inverted T, allowing the protrusion of the wearers nose for breathing, as shown in Fig. 1. A nose-shield B, of material similar to that of ing an opening 6 just under the nostrils, as

its lower edge is not sewed. The angular flaps C, left by the cut or slit a, fit against the sides of the nose, and the part D of the robe under the transverse lower part of the slit a fits against the wearers upper lip close under the nose, so that the latter member is completely incased in a flexible nose-covering, excepting only where an aperture is necessary to permit breathing. The said shield and flaps are of the same flexible and medicated material as the rest of the robe or mask, so the skin of the wearers nose will be softened and treated in all respects like that of the rest of the face.

Having thus described my invention, what
