Patent hunt tips
The patent office does not have a text search as early as this patent table was made. Now that we have a fixed date for the patent being issued (March 31st, 1891) in theory you can just go through all the patents of that day. That range was 449099 - 449652.
The inventor would have been GEORGE S. COLLUM
and the item is in the field called either a candy cooling table or a confectioners cooler.
GEORGE S. COLLUM had more than just a few candy patents, and more than just a few table patents, but we're trying to find the one from 1891.
His factory was in Hartford CT. We'd love to find photos or anything relating to this firm.
Thanks for watching.
