I don't know how acurate this is, but the story I have been told is that most were made in a town or area called Darbyshire, Derbyshire? ( or similar spelling) No patent that I know of as the idea has been around since Roman times.
information: Why are darbys called darbys? also, was there ever a patent on them?
