Wrinkle Mask

Adelaide Smith was granted a patent for this "wrinkle mask" in 1911. It has a certain Bride of Frankenstein look to it.



The object of my invention is to provide a comparatively simple and practical wrinkle mask constructed of suitable pliable material preferably of rubber, which is adapted to envelop or cover the face or portion thereof to be treated and further for providing suitable means forming a part of the same for embracing the hair or head portion of the user, whereby the wrinkles or other deformities of the face may be easily and readily removed as will appear...

My invention dispenses with the usual work in massaging, employed for removing the wrinkles or blemishes from the face, and can be used at any time more particularly, however, at nights while the patient is sleeping.

Kind of reminds me of the woman from Metaluna in the old sci-fi film This Island Earth. Here's an IMDB link with several photos of the character: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047577/characters/nm1800373?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t16

How about the stewardess' head covering on the Pan Am shuttle from Earth to the space station in "2001 A Space Odyssey"?
