Patent Model Lamp Stove for Dentists inventor S Hildreth Mount Vernon Ohio Patent # 58,822


Although I do not have the small lamp(A), the rest of the model is in great shape, as is the original Patent Office tag(s) that will go with the model. I will try to learn more about why a dentist has to "vulcanize" things but I guess that in 1866 in the town of Knox Ohio, Mr S P Hildreth thought it was worth his time to develop this model that would portray his unique idea and have his idea granted patent # 58,822 by the US Patent Office.
