To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, Joseph B. Sultzer, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Mustache-Curlers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has for its object to provide a novel device for curling mustaches; and it consists of a plate having a recess, combined with a brush, or, what I consider its equivalent, a comb capable of turning upon or adjacent to one face of the plate, in such manner that when the end of the mustache is passed through the recess of the plate and the brush is turned the desired curl is imparted to the mustache.
The invention is illustrated by the accompanying drawings, in which
In order to enable those skilled in the art to make and use my invention, I will now describe the same in detail, referring to the drawings, where—
In practice the plate is placed against the face, with the mustache extending through the recess
The invention provides a simple and efficient device for curling mustaches in an even and uniform manner without the necessity of manipulating the mustache with the fingers.
The plate and brush-head may be made of any suitable material—such as metal, ivory, celluloid, gutta-percha, horn, or wood—and it may be of any suitable form.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is—
1. A device for curling mustaches, consisting of a recessed plate and a rotary brush, substantially as described.
2. The combination, in a mustache-curler, of a plate having a recess and a handle and a rotary brush, substantially as described.
3. The combination, in a mustache-curler, of a recessed plate having a pivot-pin with a brush journaled on the pin, substantially as described.
4. The combination, in a mustache-curler, of a recessed plate with a brush detachably journaled thereon, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
Joseph B. Sultzer.
