(01. 132-79) The invention relates to a simple, compact and in shape and size with the downward depending attractive case for carrying together a comb side member of the ?nger piece it so that when and a ?le. The device is especially adapted for the comb is placed in its pocket as indicated in use in the pocket or hand bag or pocket book, Figs. 3 and 4 the ?nger piece it forms means for 5 or any other situation in which it is desirable to positioning the comb in the pocket and by pro~ '5 have together these toilet articles. jecting into the recess 55 tends to position the In general the invention consists of a casing comb in the case and prevent its. moving longi or covering surrounding substantially all of the tudinally of the case. At the same time this comb and protecting it from injury and dirt. ?nger piece is free to be grasped to remove the 10 Associated with this is a casing or covering for comb from the case. 10 a ?le which is received and held in such a way The blank illustrated in Fig. 1 is provided with as to be protected from injury or dirt. Both comb and ?le are so covered that they will not readily catch in adjacent materials and the case itself 15 is preferably free from any obstructive project ing portion which will catch in, or interfere with, adjacent materials or articles. In one aspect of the invention a portion of the structure forming the casing or sheath for the ?le may assist in retaining the comb in position in its portion of the case. In the accompanying drawing a speci?c pre ferred form of the device is illustrated. Fig. 1 is a plan view of a blank from which a comb 25 case is made. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a formed portion of the sheath for the ?le. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the assembled device illus trating both comb and ?le in place. Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical section on the line 4—1l of LO 0 Fig. 3. The comb A is illustrated as provided with a ?nger member it which is shown as being bent over and extending slightly down both sides of the upper part of the comb at about its central portion, although it might be placed at any other point on the back of the comb. The sides of the ?nger member Ill are not impressed into the comb but lie along its sides and stand out there from. The ?nger member It may be held in 40 position on the comb in any suitable manner. Pins H are illustrated for this purpose and are shown as extending through the top of the ?nger piece and into the back of the comb. The comb so ?tted may be placed into a casing member 45 which may be made from the blank illustrated in Fig. 1. This may consist of a sheet of metal or other material which may be bent along lines at its center so that the portion shown at the top of Fig. 1 forms the front E2 of the comb case. The portion l3 shown at the bottom of Fig. 1 forms the back of the comb case and the inter mediate portion “! forms the bottom of the comb case. At a proper point on the outer edge of the members 82 and I3 or of at least one of them 55 may be provided. a recess l5 which corresponds suitably positioned openings it through which may project lugs ll formed and correspondingly positioned at the bottoms or inner edges of the side rims it of the ?le sheath or casing member 15 59 which is illustrated in Fig. 2. When this cas ing member it? is placed in position as illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4 on the outside of the front mem ber E2 of the comb casing the lugs ll will pro ject through the opening it and into the inte- 20 rior of the comb receptacle. The lugs ll’ may now be turned over against the inner face of the front wall member l2 to retain the sheath ing member it in position and with the depend ing side wall members it in contact with the wall l2. The sheathing member it may be formed to correspond in shape with the end of the ?le member B and the height of the wall members H3 or the size of the sheath or both is such that when the ?le B is placed in the sheath is it may be retained therein by friction. The size of the sheath member I9 is not mate rial but it is found suf?cient to have the sheath large enough to merely cover the rough or abra sive portion of the ?le B leaving the smooth handle portion projecting and free to be grasped for removing the ?le from the casing. The mem~ bers l2 and i3 may be so positioned with respect to each other that they may produce a friction grasp upon the comb when it is centered in position. The overturned lugs it against the inner side of the wall it may be engaged by the comb and increase the frictional holding effect 25 30 35 40 or it may be that as the comb is inserted in the casing the lugs ll will extend between teeth in 45 the comb and so tend to aid in keeping the comb from falling out of the device or moving endwise in it. This arrangement makes it possible to have the comb pocket consist of front and back walls l2 and It joined by the unitary bottom 50 member It leaving the top and sides open so that the receptacle may tend to continuously keep itself clean by failing to retain dirt. The invention is not con?ned to the speci?c embodiment illustrated which may be altered or 55 2,110,514 varied in many respects and still exemplify the invention. The material of which the device is manufactured is not involved in the invention. The device may be ornamented by enamelling, chasing, plating, surface ornamentation or in any other suitable or desired manner. I claim as my invention: 1. A casing for a comb having projecting ?n ger pieces comprising a receptacle having open 10 ends and open top and consisting of two side extending border provided with inwardly pro jecting lugs which extend through the side mem ber and are bent over Within the comb recep tacle. 3. A casing for a comb comprising two side members and a connecting bottom member, a 10 members and a unitary connecting bottom mem sheath for a nail ?le consisting of a portion of ber, the side members being each substantially the outer surface of one side member and an the same in area as the comb, notches at the top edges of the side members to receive projecting 15 ?nger pieces on the comb, and a sheath for a nail ?le consisting of a portion of the outer sur face of one side member and an overlying mem ber having a portion shaped to cover only the roughened portion of the ?le, and an inwardly 20 for a nail ?le consisting of a portion of the outer surface of one side member and an overlying member having a portion shaped to cover the roughened portion of the ?le and an inwardly extending border provided with inwardly pro jecting lugs which extend through the side mem ber and are bent over within the receptacle so as to be engaged by the comb and cause it to normally remain in its receptacle. 25 2. A casing for a comb having projecting ?nger pieces consisting of two side members and a uni tary connecting bottom member, notches at the top edges of the side members to receive pro jecting ?nger pieces on the comb, and a sheath overlying member having a portion shaped to cover the ?le and provided with inwardly pro jecting lugs which extend through the side mem 15 ber and are bent over within the receptacle so as to be engaged by the comb to cause it to normally remain in its receptacle. 4. A casing for a comb comprising two side members and a unitary connecting bottom mem 20 ber, a sheath for a nail ?le consisting of a por tion of the outer surface of one side member and an overlying member provided with inwardly projecting lugs which extend through the side member and are bent over within the receptacle 25 so as to be engaged by the comb to cause it to normally remain in its receptacle.
