Attorneys Patented Oct. 16, 1951 Eric Leopold Hugo Cosby, London, England Application November 22, 1948, Serial No. 61,460 In Great Britain December 15, 1947 9 Claims.

1 This invention relates to toilet combs in which the teeth are carried or held in a holder and wherein the teeth can be moved to conform to the contour of the head when being combed, and has for its object the construction of such a comb in 'an improved manner.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a toilet comb in which the comb is in the form of a thin resilient strip having its teeth comb having flat enlarged ends the lower portions of which are connected by the comb strip, and

means being provided at each end of the holder to cooperate with the respective enlarged ends of the comb for securing the comb in the holder with the teeth of the comb projecting from the open longitudinal edge of the holder, the holder having a space or chamber therein between its closed longitudinal edge and the resilient comb strip into which the comb strip may flex.

Another object of the invention is to provide a comb of the character above referred to in which 7 a chamber is formed between the comb strip and the closed longitudinal edge of the holder and contains a body of absorbent material adapted to be impregnated with a perfume, the holder having perforations therein which communicate with, said chamber and through which perfume from the absorbent material may diffuse to the exterior of the holder.

The invention will be clearly understood from Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a i comb showing one example of carrying the invention into effect. Figure 1a is a detail sectional view showing a modification of Figure 1. Figure 2,

is a longitudinal sectional view of a second example. Figure 3 is a section on the line III--III of Figure 2. Figure 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of a third example. Figure 5 is ,a longitudinal sectional view of a fourth example. Fig-.

ure 6 is a section on the line VI-VI of Figure 5 and Figure 7 a section on the line VII-VII of Figure 5, and Figures 8 to 12 are detail views of the example shown in Figures 5 to 7.

The invention can be carried into effect in 'various ways as to detailed construction.

In the example shown in Figure 1 of the drawings, the comb is formed with a thin resilient strip I from which the teeth 2 project on one edge. Each end of the comb is formed with a flat enlarged end 3, 4, one end 3 being formed with a projection 5 projecting from one end near the top, and the other end 3 with a screw-threaded hole 6 directed inwards from the latter end and near the top.

the following description aided by the accom panying drawings, in which:

2 The holder consists of a flat box-like cover I closed along one longitudinal edge and open along its other longitudinal edge to receive the comb. In one end wall 1a is formed a hole for receiving the projection 5 of the comb and in the other end wall 1b is formed 'a hole for receiving a screw 8.

' Thecomb is located in the holder 1 by first inserting the end 3 so that the projection 5 engages in the hole in the end wall la and the rest of the comb is then positioned in the holder 1 so that the screw 8 can be screwed into the hole in the end 4 and the comb retained in the holder so that the teeth 2 project from the open end of the holder 1. g

In place of the projection 5 a screw 8a similar to the screw 8 could be provided-at this end of the holder 1 for engaging in a screw-threaded'hol'e 6a in the end 3 of the comb as shown in Fig." 1a; so that both ends of the comb are held by screws.

- In the example shown in Figure 2, in place of the projection 5 and screw 8, the ends 3, 4 are each formed with a cross hole and the longer walls of the holder 1 with holes whichwhen the comb is positioned in the holder 1 are in alignment with the holes in the comb. The holes on one side of the holder 1 may be screw-threaded so that the two headed pins or studs 9 with screwthreaded ends can be passed through the holes in one wall of the holder 1, the holes in thecomb I wall of the holder 1, or rivets or other means may and screwed into the threaded holes in the other be employed. 1

In the examples of Figures 1, 1a and 2, the space between the thin strip l and the top of theholder 1 can form a chamber and be left clear or could be provided with a fixedor removable absorbent member H), such as a length of twisted wire in which are engaged strands orpieces of absorbent material, engaged in holes in the ends 3, 4, as shown in Figure 1, or could :befilled or partly filled with a body of absorbent resilient -material 10a, such as cotton wool as shown in T Figure 2, the absorbent material being impregnated with a perfume,- in which case the top and/ or side walls of the holder 1 and/or the thin strip'l could be formed with small holes or perforations la, which communicate with the chamher and through which the aroma from the'perfume can pass to the exterior of the holder.

In the example shown in Figure 4, the holder 17 is formed with two projecting bosses I l l2, one

on the inside of each end wall la, lb respectively. In this case the upper portions of the enlarged ends 3, 4 of the comb are connectedby astrip I3 parallel to and at a distance from the resilient strip l carrying the teeth leaving a longitudinal elongated hollow completely through the .comb.

3 recesses in the ends 3, 4 of the comb to retain the comb in the holder l. The chamber H in the comb may be left clear or provided with an absorbent member or filled or partly filled with a body of absorbent material as already described.

In the example shown in Figures 5 to 12, the comb is constructed with the enlarged ends 3, 4 connected by the resilient strip l and by a strip I3 which is parallel to and spaced above the resilient strip I, leaving a hollow into which the resilient strip I is flexible, and asmall diameter recess is formed in the outer edge of each of the enlarged ends 3, 4.

One end of the holder 1 is formed along the inside of the end wall la with a small diameter boss I l which may conveniently consist of a pin. The other end of the holder l is provided with a blade spring l5 secured to the lower edge of the end wall lb with the upper end projecting through an aperture is in the top wall of the holder 1, the spring l5 carrying a projection ll. Conveniently the spring I5 may be secured in a recess in the lower end of the wall lb by turning over the end [5a of the spring, locating same in the recess and securing by a filling-in piece or plate I8 by a pin 19 passing through holes in the plate l8 and end l5a into the wall lb.

The comb is of less length than the length of the inside of the holder 1 so that one end 3 can be inserted in the holder 1 and a recess therein engaged with the boss H and a recess in the other end 4 of the comb engaged by the projection H to hold the comb in the holder 1. To

remove the comb, the free end of the spring i5 is moved to free the projection i! from the comb and the comb pulled out.

When the comb is pressed onto the head, the strip will flex inwards into the hollow body of the holder so that the teeth give to the contour of the head.

Various other constructions may be employed in which the comb formed with a resilient strip carrying the teeth can be engaged at its ends in a holder so that the resilient strip can flex up into the holder for the teeth to give to the contour of the head. I
