DESCRIPTION:

On this original linen-backed lithograph from 1932 (includes original specification sheet), Joseph Lucas Limited patented improvements relating to wind screen wipers for motor vehicles. Joseph Lucas (12 April 1834 – 27 December 1902) was a lamp manufacturer and the founder of Lucas Industries. In the 1850s, Joseph Lucas, a jobless father of six, sold paraffin oil from a barrow cart around the streets of Hockley. In 1860, he founded the firm that would become Lucas Industries. His 17-year-old son Harry joined the firm around 1872. At first it made general pressed metal merchandise, including plant pot holders, scoops and buckets, and later in 1875 lamps for ships. Joseph Lucas & Son was based in Little King Street from 1882 and later Great King Street Birmingham.

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.
