UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CAMILLO MACCHIA, OF ARDMORE, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO THE UNITED STATES FIREWORKS MANUFACTURING COMPANY, INCORPORATED, F CARDINGTON,
PENNSYLVANIA, A CORPORATION OF PENNSYLVANIA.
Application led February 17, 1923. Serial No. 619,559.
A of the horn. D is the reed of the whistle inserted in a longitudinal channel I)2 and Ds is the usual lateral opening of a whistle.
To blow out the confetti the whistle plug is removed and the mouth applied directly to the small end of the horn. Air under pressure builds up in chamber A8 until the plug D is forced outward compressing the confetti against the thin closure C which gives way, permitting the confetti to issue in a cloud. The whistle can then be reinserted in the small end of the horn and the device used to make plenty of noise.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, CAMILLO MACCHIA, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of Ardmore, in the county of Montgomery, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Toys, of which the following is a true and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, which 10 forms a part thereof.
My invention relates to a toy and has for its object to provide a horn charged with confetti held in place by a loose plug and a tissue paper closure and provided with a whistle plug removable to facilitate the blowing out of the plug and confetti and replaceable to permit the emptied horn to be used to amplify the noise of the whistle.
In the drawing, which illustrates my toy in longitudinal section, A is the horn having a small open end A and a large open endvAz. B is a loose plug most conveniently made of crumpled tissue paper which is inserted in the horn to divide it into a small mouthpiece chamber A8 and a larger chamber A. This chamber is charged with confetti held in place by a tissue paper closure C pasted over the end A2 of the horn. D. is a whistle plug removably fitted in the end As a new article of manufacture a toy consisting of a horn, in combination with a loose plug dividing the interior of the horn into a small chamber at the smaller or mouthpiece end of the horn and a larger chamber at the larger end of the horn, a charge of confetti in the larger chamber of the horn, a tissue paper closure for the large end of the horn and a removable whistle fitting as a plug in the small end of the horn.
