F. PRICE HAIR COMB May 28 1946.

Original Filed Aug. 1, 1942 INVENTOR Fannie Pmce BY ATTORNEY Patented May 28, 1946 Fannie Price, New York, N. Y.

Substituted for abandoned application Serial No. 453,148, August 1, 1942. This application June 19, 1945, Serial No. 600,259

4 Claims. 132-16) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a hair comb. This is a substitute for my abandoned application filed August 1, 1942, Serial Number 453,148.

More particularly, the invention contemplates the construction of an article as mentioned which is adapted to have coarse teeth, medium teeth or line teeth, as desired.

More specifically, it is proposed that the article have one set of teeth which may be turned to various positions so that when the hair comb is used the effect is substantially the same as if the coarseness of the teeth were changed.

Still further the invention proposes a construction as previously mentioned which may be adapted to various designs and constructions of hair combs.

Another object of the invention is the construction of a device as mentioned which is simple and durable and which may be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth,

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a combination hair comb and brush constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an end elevational view looking in the direction of the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary horizontal sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary bottom view looking in the direction of the line 6-6 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 7 is a fragmentary bottom view similar to Fig. 5 but illustrated with the teeth in a different position.

Fig. 8 is a perspective view of one of the teeth per se.

Fig. 9 is a side elevational view of another embodiment of a comb and brush constructed in accordance with the same invention.

Fig. 10 is another perspective view of another comb and brush constructed in accordance with the same invention.

The hair comb and brush, in accordance with this invention, includes a back I0 having a side portion I I releasably held in position with several fastening elements I2, such as screws. The back I0 has a groove I3 extended in from the bottom immediately adjacent said removable side portion 1 I. A plurality of fiat comb teeth It extend along the bottom of said back I0. Each comb tooth has an enlarged top portion I5 engaged in the said groove I3 and a blade portion I6. A plurality of brush bristles I1 are mounted upon the top of the back II]. The back II] is also provided with a handle I8 by which the comb or the brush may be conveniently manipulated.

Means is provided for flexibly holding the top portions I5 of the comb teeth I4 to normally hold the teeth transversely of the back ID. This means includes an elastic strap I9 having each end I9a fixedly attached to one of the ends of the groove I3. The elastic strap I9 extends across the complete length of the groove I3. Each top portion I5 is formed with a slot 20 through which the elastic strap I9 passes.

Serrations ZI are formed along one of the sides of each top portion I5 and are cooperative with complementary serrations 22 formed upon the inner face of the removable side portion I I of the back II). A pad or other friction strip 23, preferably, is extended along the side of the groove I 3 which is opposed to the removable side portion I I.

When the fastening elements I2 are loosened, the top portions I5 are free to turn and will be turned by the elastic strip I9 so that the blades I6 are transversely of the back I0 as illustrated in Fig. 5. The fastening elements I2 may now be tightened so that the serrations 22 grip the serrations 2I and force the top portions I5 tightly against the friction pad 23 to hold the teeth from turning. The comb may now be used, and if the teeth are fine teeth, the comb will function as a fine comb.

If desired, the fastening elements I2 may be loosened slightly and each tooth blade I6 turned to a desirable angular position, for example, as illustrated in Fig. 6. Each top portion I5 will be held against turning back by the inter-engagement of the serrations 2I and 22 and the action of the pad 23. The fastening elements I2 may then be turned tight to fixedly hold each of the comb teeth in its new angular position. The comb, when now used, will have the effect of a comb capable of better smoothing the hair since the distance between the teeth has been changed in a way to increase the frictional resistance of the passage of the hair between th teeth.

In Fig. 9 another comb and brush has been illustrated constructed in accordance with the same invention. It is provided with a back I0 upon one side of the back. Bristles H" are mounted upon the other side of the back, In other respects this form of the invention is similar to the previous forms.

While I have illustrated and described the-preside portion l i and fiat comb teeth 14 mounted,

extending along the bottom of said back, each comb tooth having an enlarged base engaged in said groove, means for flexibly holding said bases to hold said teeth transversely of said back, and means for fixedly holding said comb teeth in selected turned positions, said means for flexibly holding said bases including a resilient strip mounted across the ends of said groove and extending through slots in said bases 3. In an article of the class described, a back having a side portion releasably held in position and having a groove extended in from the bottom ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the pre cise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention asdefined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is: a l

1. In an article of the class described, aback having a side portion releasably held in position and having a groove extended in from the bottom adjacent said side portion, and flat comb teeth extending along the bottom of said back, each comb tooth having an enlarged 'base engaged in said groove, means for flexibly holding said bases to hold said teeth transversely of said back, and means for fixedly holding said comb teeth in selected turned positions.

2. In an article of the class described, a back having a side portion releasabl held in position and having a groove extended in from the bottom adjacent said side portion, and flat comb teeth adjacent said side portion, and flat comb teeth extending along the bottom of said back, each comb tooth having an enlarged base engaged in said groove, means for flexibly holding said bases to hold said teeth transversely of said back, and means for fixedly holding said comb teeth in selected turned positions, comprising serrations on one of the sides of said bases engaging complementary serrations on the inner side of said portion. I V

I 4. In an article of the class described, a back having a side portion releasably held in position and having a groove extended in from the bottom adjacent said side portion, and flat comb teeth.

extending along the bottom of said back, each comb tooth having an enlarged base engaged in said groove, meansfor flexibly holding said bases to hold said teeth transversely of said back, and means for fixedly holding said comb teeth in selected turned positions, comprising serrations on one of the sides of said bases engaging complementary serrations on the inner sideof said side portion, and a pad extended along the other side of said groove and engaging against said bases. v FANNIE PRICE.
