And the reason we went was to see the collection of patent models on display in the library! Which were amazing yet hard to properly document without an appointment to take them out of the cases. And many were on loan to Japan. These need to be shared. They are miniature specimens of ingenuity. #patentmodel #hagleymuseumandlibrary #midmod #eidupont #eidupontdenemoursandcompany #ingenuity

Barbers Chair Model 10 inch tall, Patent model 1880. Original patent form was witnessed by Mr. Theo A. Kochs of Kochs Barber Supply, Although it resembles nothing we are accoustomed to seeing today for Barber Chair Style. It is a historical piece in view of the linage of the mechanical patent steps for barber chair creation. Theo A. Kochs Barber supply began in 1877, which was when this patent was submitted, but patent was not granted till 1880...! #barberchairpatentmodel #barberchairs #patentmodel #theokochsbarberchair #barberchairpatents
