DESCRIPTION:

On this original linen-backed lithograph from 1932 (includes original specification sheet), George Albert Lyon patented improvements in or relating to covers for spare tires. George Albert Lyon (1882 - 1961) of Asbury Park, New Jersey is known as the inventor of early automobile bumpers and the man behind Lyon, Inc., a company manufacturing stainless steel wheel covers. By 1923 Lyon had just perfected his automobile bumper and was playing around with many more ideas. In 1929 he sold his company to the Houdaille-Hershey Corporation. After working in Asbury Park for a while, he returned to Detroit in 1930 and formed Lyon Incorporated. Lyon developed a metal tire cover for spare wheels, produced plastic and metal white walls, stainless wheel-trim rings and stainless steel wheel covers.

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.
