ALFRED WIEHL, OF NEW'YORK, N. Y.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 290,827, dated December 25, 1883,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ALFRED WIEHL, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Advertising-Fans, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has reference to an improved advertising-fan of novel and attractive design; and it consists of afan the body of which is covered with a layer provided with openings, behind which a sliding piece, that complements a suitable picture on the coveringlayer, is arranged. The sliding piece is attached at one side by an elastic to the fanbody, and at the other side is provided with a string or other means, by which motion can be given to the sliding piece, and thus a transformation of the picture be produced.
In the accompanying drawings, Figures 1 and 2 represent front views of my improved advertising fan, showing the slide-piece in different positions. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section through the center online 0c .90, Fig. 1. I
Similar letters of reference indicate the corresponding parts. 7
Referring to the drawings, A represents a fan, preferably a common Japanese fan, having a hollow handle, A.
A is a coveringlayer, of paper, that is applied to one or both sides of the fan, and provided with a suitable picture, and furnished with openings a a.
Back of the openings or a a slide-piece, B, is guided, which slide-piece is so painted or printed as to complement the picture on the Application filed July 12, 1883. (No model.)
covering layer or layers A of the fan. The upper part of said slide-piece B is attached to the body of the fan by means of a piece of rub ber, b, or other elastic material, while to its lower part a string, B, is attached, which passes, preferably, through the hollow handle A, and has a ring, B", attached to its outer end. By pulling at the string B the slidepiece B is moved, so as to produce a transformation of the picture, whereby a comical or otherwise striking effect is produced.
I11 place of the string any other equivalent means for reciprocating the slide-piece maybe used.
The fan may be made in any desired design. and produces, in connection with its reciprocating slide-piece, an attractive and amusing effect,whereby the fan is specially adapted to advertising purposes.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent A fan, A, having a hollow handle, A, asuitable picture on a layer, A", of paper furnished with openings at a, the slide-piece B back of 60 the openings, painted or printed to complement and complete the picture, the elastic b, attached to the slide-piece and the body of the fan, and the string B, extending through the handle, substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
