Rain King sprinklers were part of the Sunbeam line of the Chicago Flexible Shaft Co. The design was officially patented in 1925, but it had been in production as early as 1922. An adjustable hand wheel offered customers the option to lock in a stationary water stream, or turn it the other for a revolving spray from the two nozzles. Sunbeam eventually became the well known home appliance brand.
