anni lliililmf CHARLES HORACENOYES, OF'BROOKLYN, NEWVYQRK.

Letters Patent No. 95,130, dated September 21, 1869;

IMPRovEMnN-r 1N CHILDS' Ronm coMBs. y

The Sohedule'refened to in 4tl1e:ae, Le'ttersi Patent and making p'a of the same.

` Toqll whom it may `concern.-`

`Be it knownthat I, C'HRnns. HORACE Novas, of

Brooklyn, in the -county of Kings, and Stateof New York, have madean invention of certain new and useful Improvements in CombinationSide-Combs; and.

that the following is a' full, clear, and exact descrip4v -tion and specification of my said invention.

Combination ,side-combs, asconstructed previous. to this invention, consist of a pair of side-combs,4

united by 'a-curved band, the side-combs and band beingall constructed out lof one piece of material. ,Thisrprevious construction is objectionable 'on ac- Y `count of the cost of the niauufacture and the necessity oi' throwing away the ent-ire article in case a material part be broken, as weliasffor other reasons, which heed not be mentioned in detail.' i

#Combination side-combs have also `been constructed .with the head-band and side-combs connected by rivet-s, but this construction isV objectionable, as it does not permit the disconnection and `reconnection "ofthe members bythe user.V

The object of myinvention is to avoid the ,ohjec-i this end-I i My invention` consists of the combination of a pair "tions of the previousmode,jof'construction; and to of side-combs, with a connecting-bami, vby means lof i a disconnectable isteningysuch *as escutcheon-pins and slots, or some equivalent yorsubstitute therefor,

i i which permits either comb. to be .readily connected i with and separat-ed from the band bythe user.

This combination, while.,` holding the combs rigidly -to the band, softhat the parts maintain their rela? tivepositions, permits the 'side-combs to be made of aseparate piece from the band, and tobe cut out of each other in the usualv mode ofA making plain, de-

` tached side-combs; it alsoenables the user to replace y a broken member of .the combination, and avoids the necessity oi' throwing away thewholc article in casel a comb or: `the band be broken, because the combs and bands, being .readily connect-able andydetacllable,

il i by the user, maybe purchased separately.

f `It also permits the 4saine combs to be yused with different head-bands, made of the. same or ofdiiierent materials; thus permitting the-user to provide her- Seli' `at thejcost of the headebands alone, with an assortment of ornamental.head-bauds,any-one o f which may be used iirconnection with thesamevpair of side? combs as rerpnired.`

` In order that my invention may be fully under;

stood, I have represented in the accompanying draw-- i ing, and will proceed to 3 describe acombination sidei comb embodying it.

' Figure 1 represents a view in perspective of said combination side-comb, and

Figure. 2 represents a section of a portion of it.

The ,said combination side-comb is formed by com-` `[lining the curved head-baud A and the two sidel combs B B.

V Each side-comhisof the usual construction of detached side-combs, but it is iitted with two escutcheonpins e e, which are iirmly secured to thc onterside of the comb-back b, with the under sides of their heads at a slightly greater distance from it than the thickyness ofthe head-band A. p The head-band may be plain, or may be ornamente'd,'in any desired manner,` by moulding, or by cutting, or by perihration, or bythe 'application of ornaments, or by two or more'of these modes of ornamentation.

.1ts,ends, f, `are made sniiicientlylong to overlap the backs of the side-combs, and each end is perfor-` ated with slots s s, corresponding in position with the" positions of the escntchcon-pins e e.

The slots are large enough at one end to permit the insertion of the heads of the pinsthrough` them, but are narrower elsewhere, to prevent the .passage of those heads, but to permit the stems ofthe' pins to move along the-slots. s Hence .the side-comb may be applied to the band by entering the heads of the pins through thelarge `parts offthefslots, and then the comb may be moved along the band to engage" the stemsof the pins in the narrower parts oi'` the slots, lin which positions the heads oi' the pins will secure the sideacomb to the head-band.

The side-comb may be readily detached byrevers-Y ing ,the above operation. t

The comb-backs and .the ends of the band are, by preference, jmade of slightly different curvatures, so

that the spring of the one from the other tends to` make the. engagement of the escutcheon-pins secure.

The combination side-comb' thus described may be made of any suitable material, suoli, for example, as

hard India rubber, horn, or metal; and the forms of i the parts, and the construction of the disconnectable fastening, whether consisting of escutcheon-pins or some substitute therefor, may be-greatly varied without departing from the principle of my invention.

I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The combination of the head-band, side-comb, and detachable fastening, substantially as before set forth. 1n testimony whereof, 'I have hereunto 'set my hand, this 1st day bf'July, A. D. 1869.
