PROVISIONAL SPECIFICATION.

An Improved Sweetmeat and Method of Manufacturing the same.

I, WILLIAM DOCWRA, of 21 and 22, Middlegate Street, Great Yarmouth, in the County of Norfolk, Manufacturer, do hereby declare the nature of this invention to be as follows:-
My invention relates to an improved sweetmeat and to a method of manufacturing the same.

According to my invention, my improved sweetmeat is in the form of a fish, the body of which has lettering extending completely through the same in such a manner that on the said body being broken at any part, the same words are visible on the section no matter at what point the fracture is made.

For example, the fish may advantageously represent a bloater, and the words within the body thereof which becomes visible on fracture, may be the words "real Yarmouth".

In carrying out the invention, I advantageously proceed as follows, that is to- say, I take the sweetmeat known as rock with the selected letters worked therein, in the usual way; and I pull out the said rock, which is in a pliable condition, in such a manner as to maintain the said letters at the centre thereof.

The extended mass is then passed through a pair of rollers which are mounted so that they can be turned in order to draw the said mass between them. The rollers have formed upon their peripheries the pattern or shape of the fish, and as the plastic mass passes between the said rollers each revolution of the latter stamps or cuts out one fish. The sweetmeat leaves the rollers in the form of a continuous ribbon or series of fishes, which are then broken up into lengths or single fishes each of which is then advantageously wrapped in tin-foil and packed for transport.

COMPLETE SPECIFICATION.

An Improved Sweetmeat and Method of Manufacturing the same.

I, WILLIAM DOCWRA, of 21 and 22, Middlegate Street, Great Yarmouth, in the County of Norfolk, Manufacturer, do hereby declare the nature of this invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:-
My invention relates to an improved sweetmeat and method of manufacturing the same.

According to my invention, my improved sweetmeat is in the form of a fish, the body of which has lettering extending completely through the same in such a manner that on the said body being broken at any part, the same words are visible on the section no matter at what point the fracture is made.

For example, the fish may advantageously represent a bloater, and the words within the body thereof which become visible on fracture, may be the words "real Yarmouth".

In carrying out the invention, I advantageously proceed as follows, that is to say, I take the sweetmeat known as rock with the selected letters worked therein, in the usual way, and I pull out the said rock, which is in a pliable condition, in such a manner as to maintain the said letters at the centre thereof.

The extended mass is then passed through a pair of rollers which are mounted so that they can be turned in order to draw the said mass between them. The rollers have formed upon their peripheries the pattern or shape of the fish, and as the plastic mass passes between the said rollers each revolution of the latter stamps or cuts out one or two fishes according to the size of fishes being made. The sweetmeat leaves the rollers in the form of a continuous ribbon or series of fishes, which are then broken up into lengths or single fishes each of which is then advantageously wrapped in tinfoil and packed for transport.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is:-

A sweetmeat in the form of a fish the body of which has lettering extending completely through the same in such a manner that on the said body being broken at any part the same words are visible on the section no matter at what point the fracture is made.
