To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, George P. Hall, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Mustache-Guards, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
The object of my invention is to provide a guard device for attachment to the mustache, which shall be adapted to so hold or confine the mustache that when eating or drinking the mustache will be kept out of the food.
After describing the construction of the device the invention will be designated in the claim.
In the drawings hereto annexed,
To the back of each end of the comb a guard or protector plate,
This device is designed to be applied as follows: The teeth of the comb are held with their points upward and placed against the edge of the upper lip; then are pushed upward so as to enter the mustache. The back of the comb should extend along the upper lip just above its edge. The mustache on each side is then drawn sidewise along the teeth of the comb, and when so placed the guard-plate
Having described my invention, I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States—
A mustache-guard consisting of the combination of a comb to enter the mustache, a guard-plate hinged to the comb, and a spring-plate attached to the comb to cause pressure on the guard-plate, as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
Geo. P. Hall.
