This week: Patent #560,351 - Device for Producing Dimples
Don’t like your teeth? Straighten them. Have too much hair there? Not enough hair somewhere else? You can fix that too, for a price. Men and women have been changing their appearance for centuries; usually in an attempt to attract the opposite sex. In the latter half of the 19th century, dimples were the rage. Those who didn’t have dimples wanted them. In response to demand a myriad of inventions were invented to allow the un-dimpled to create their own dimples. One such inventor, Mr. Martin Goetze, was issued U.S. patent # 560,351 in 1896 for a “Device for Producing Dimples.” Mr. Goetze’s designed his device for self-use. In theory the operator would rotate the device on the face allowing the skin around the dimple to become more malleable. The inventor claimed that the massaging effect of the device would make the body susceptible to the production of “artistic dimples.”
At the Damon R. Hickman Law Firm we think we can produce a smile on our clients’ faces with at least as much reliability as Mr. Goetze’s Dimple Device. We offer all of our new clients a free initial consultation.
