COMB.

Application filed February 28, 1924. Serial No. 695,706.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EDA L. YOUNG, residing at Sewickley, in the county of Alle- 'gheny and State of Pennsylvania, a citizen of the United States, have invented or discovered certain new and useful Improvements in Combs, of which improvement the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in combs for womens wear, and is found in a comb which when applied is at once virtually invisible and is effective as ordinary hairpins are not, to hold in place wandering locks of hair.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which in four figures, four combs are shown in side elevation, embodying, with variations in detail, each the essence of the invention.

As shown in Fig. I, the comb consists of an ordinary wire hairpin 1, combined with incomplete hairpins 2, in this instance six such incomplete hairpins are employed. These incomplete hairpins, also of wire, consist each of one prong and the terminal how, the second prong being absent. The incomplete hairpins 2 are combined and united with the complete hairpin 1 and with one another in the arrangement and by the means shown. All lie in a common plane, or substantially so, and side by side, and are united conveniently by soldering or welding, bowed end to bowed end, as indicated at 3. The result is a comb made of wire, requiring no header band or back, the tines united and integrated merely by continuity of the wire of which they themselves are composed. Thus a comb structure is produced which has the invisibility of a wire hairpin.

The modification illustrated in Fig. II differs from the illustration in Fig. I, in that union of the parts is effected not primarily by soldering or by welding, as is the case with the comb of Fig. I, but by twisting together in twists 4 the reaches of wire which in the assembly come to tangency. It will be perceived that soldering or welding described of Fig. I may be resorted to in addition to the twisting described in Fig. II.

In Fig. III the component hairpins are not mutilated. In this illustration three complete hairpins are employed, and in the finished article these three hairpins lie in common plane, or substantially so, side by side, but spaced at intervals, and they are united, not each in contact with its next adjacent hairpin, but by means of lengths of wire 5, each length arched between two adjacent component hairpins, and united at its two ends with one tine of the two hairpins. The union may be either such a union as has already been described in connection with Fig. 1, or such as that described in connection with Fig. IT (and so it is actually shown), or, as has been said of Fig. 11, the twisted union may be fortified by welding or by soldering.

Fig. IV also shows a comb made of a plurality of complete and unmutilated wire hairpins 1. In this case these hairpins are three in number, and they are united in the same relative positions as shown in Fig. III, but they are united by a single length of wire 6. Beginning at the point a, this length of wire is secured first to the inner tine of the hairpin on the left, preferably by twisting. From the twist so formed it is bowed to the middle hairpin and twisted, with the double twist shown, to the adjacent prong thereof. It is then bowed in parallelism with the bow of the middle hairpin, as indicated at b, then twisted with a double twist to the other tine of the middle hairpin, then bowed to the pin on the right, with which it is united, as to the hairpin on the left, and it terminates at 0. Here again as in Figs. I1 and III, the union (shown as twisted unions) may be effected by soldering, by welding, by twisting, or by twisting in combination with soldering or welding.

It will be understood-that in all these cases the number of hairpins employed may be varied at will, to produce combs of less or greater number of tines.

The drawings show the tines of the component hairpins to be medially undulated, which is a well-known feature in hairpin structure, useful to afford greater security. It will be understood that in some degree the twisting of the parts together described above, so far as twisting is present, will serve the same ends.

Wire hairpins commonly are. japanned. The comb of my invention may be made of materials already japanned, or otherwise finished superficially, or japanning or other surface finishing may be applied after fabrication, to the otherwise finished comb, or the invention may be practiced upon material having no special surface finish.

I claim as my invention:

An invisible comb Whose tines at the free end consist each of a single length of Wire, said comb being formed of a plurality of Wire hair-pins arranged side by side in common plane and at intervals apart, and of a uniting Wire bowed across the interval between the hair-pins and integrated with the hair-pins by intertwisting at the. bases of the prongs and adjacent the bows thereof, leaving free the ends of the tines of the comb so formed.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
