UNITED STATES ATENT OFFICE.
WILLIAM E. GRANDALL, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
TOY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 264,066, dated September 12, 1882.
Application filed July 28, 1882. (N0 model.)
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM E. GRANDALL, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Toys; and I do hereby declare that thefollowing is'a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying sheet of drawings, making part of this specification.
This invention is in the nature of an improvement in toys; and theinvention consists in a toy obelisk composed of hollow sections, the top and bottom of each section being open and their sides embellished with letters of the alphabet, numerals, and hieroglypliics.
In the accompanying sheet of drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective View of my toy, showing sections built up into obelisk; Fig. 2, a plan view of same nested; Fig. 3, a cross-section taken in the line as m, Fig. 2.
Similarletters of referenceindicatelike parts in the several figures.
This toy is intended to combine amusement with instruction, and is composed of a series of sections, A, each section having the form of a pyramidal frustum with their tops and hot toms opened, and so proportioned with relation to each other. as to form an obelisk, B, when one section is placed on top of the other, the edges of these sections when so placed being contiguous to and coinciding with the edges of the sections immediately in contact with them.
Onto one side of each section is painted or otherwise fixed the capital letters, a, of the alphabet. Onto another side is, in like manner, fixed the small letters of the alphabet, on a third side numerals, and on the fourth side gratified by the result of his construction. If
desired, the upper edges of each section may have small dowel-pins inserted in its edges, which will tend to keep the several sections in place.
When it is intended to take down the obelisk each section is lit't-ed'from the other, and, beginning from the top, the upper section is placed in the one next below it, and so on until all the sections are received in the lowermost one, as is shown in Fig. 3.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
l. A toy obelisk composed of sections fitted together edge to edge, each section provided with letters of the alphabet, numerals, and
hieroglyphics, substantially as is shown anddescribed.
2. In a toy obelisk composed of sections, the several sections having dowel-pins, as and for the purpose described.
