Rockin’ Design Patent – Edward L. Combs’ “Radiocabinet”

  • USD83956Rockin’ Patent: US Design Patent No. D83,956
  • Filed: 28 February 1931
  • In the name of: Edward L. Combs
  • Title: Radiocabinet
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for a radio cabinet, as shown.”
  • Why this (design) patent rocks: Unlike utility patents, design patents (also called “registered designs”) protect the way all or part of a product looks rather than how it works. This is why the claim here refers to the “ornamental design” for the radio cabinet “as shown”. The design itself appears to correspond to the Philco Model 21 radio (see here for more information).
