Item description

Vintage Old Piece of Americana Patented April 1920 I think this was used to hold doors open so they would not slam shut when there was a breeze. In the old days before air conditioning they had to rely on open windows and fans. Silencer is made of heavy rubber which has age cracks on surface and is now somewhat stiff. It is 8-1/2 in. long x 2-3/8 in. wide and has a loop on either end to go over door knobs. Surface is imprinted with Lewis Door Silencer, Pennsylvania Rubber CO., Jeannette, Pa., Patented April 1920. It does come with the original paper envelope which has yellowed, become fragile with age and is torn. Envelope is marked Lewis Door Silencer for Hospital Wards, Dormitories, Sick Rooms, Libraries, Offices, Etc., Made Only By Pennsylvania Rubber Company, Jeannette, PA., USA. Great old collectible form the past!
