Sale apparatus Cross and Noble Original Patent Lithograph 1888
On this original linen-backed lithograph from 1888, Cross, E. A., and Noble, H. B., patented a sale apparatus. The articles are stored in a container pivoted at the top on a crossbar and divided into a series of compartments, one of which always above the delivery device. The articles are delivered first from the front compartment, and when this is an empty weight, it strikes a catch which previously held the container in this position. The articles are then delivered by the rotation of the device under the weight of the articles themselves. Arrangements may also be made for delivering two articles at a time, or one for a halfpenny and two for a penny.
All patent lithographs sold by Maymont Group are 100% ORIGINAL.
These documents are NOT reproductions or posters (patent art).
These are the original lithographs found in books obtained from the Patent and Trademark Office directly.
In the 1800's and early 1900's, inventors would submit a detailed drawing of the invention and/or improvements to the patent and trademark office. Once received and if approved, the Patent office would then send a letter of confirmation to the inventor and begin to take that drawing and etch it into stone in order to create and print this linen-backed lithograph. These documents are the original hard copies that were created by the patent office's artists, and act as patent examiner reference material. With that being said, these are 100% original and are the only physical copies in existence.
