I CRUET ATTACHMENT FOR CAFETERIA-CHAIRS AND THE LIKE.

aurels.

To all whom itmag concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE FREDERICK COREY, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and resident of 28 Verral Ave, in the city of Toronto, county of York, Province of Ontario, in the Dominion of Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cruet Attachments forCaLfeteria- Chairs and the like, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in cruet attachments for cafeteria chairs and the like as described in the present specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings that form a part of the same.

The invention consists essentially of the novel construction and arrangement of parts whereby a cruet stand or other like device is adapted to be adjustably supported from the under side of the arm of a cafeteria chair.

The objects of the invention are to provide each chair With an individual set of salt, pepper and other receptacles thereby eliminating the annoyance and inconvenience to diners due to having to wait their turn to use the devices of this nature which are customarily placed on a table special to this purpose, to economize in the equipping of restaurants, to eliminate loss through theft, and generally to provide a cruet attachment for cafeteria chairs and the like which will be inexpensive to manufacture, durable and efficient.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of a cafeteria chair showing the cruet stand in its extended position.

Fig. 2 shows a chair arm with the cruet stand in its receding position.

Fig. 3 is a view of the under side of a chair arm. 1

Fig. 4; shows a modified form of attachment in which the stand is rotatable.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the perforated disk adapted to accommodate the receptacles.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the various figures.

Referring'to the drawings the cruet stand and the sliding support therefor are preferaibly formed up from a piece of wire folded double and slidably secured on the under side 1 of a chair arm or other support by means of brackets 2 over, said wire having its respective strands offset at right angles forming a stop 3 be- Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed August 9, 1918. Serial No. 249,206.

secured there- Patented Apr. 29, 11919..

tween the said brackets 2 for the purpose of limiting the longitudinal movement of the device, and having its strand 4 continuing outwardly in a straight line past the chair edge and looped to-form a handle 5 and then projecting inwardly a short distance parallel with said straight portion and with the portion 6 being turned downwardly a short distance and then being offset at right angles and suitably bent to form rings 7 adapted to accommodate the receptacles 8.

The portions containing the rings 7 are so positioned in relation to the other parts that when the stop 3 is against the innermost bracket 2 the receptacles 8 will be completely covered by the chair arm and the handle 5 will project just beyond said edge and when the device is drawn outwardly with the stop 3 engaging the outer bracket the receptacles will just clear the outer edge of the arm.

Each of the receptacles is provided with a chain 9 secured to the under side thereof and connected at their other ends to the under side of said arm, said chains being of sufiicient length to permit of the receptacles being brought to any position over said arm.

The device may of course be projected from beneath the chair arm in any desired direction although the present drawings show it as projecting outwardly from the front edge thereof.

In Figs. 4c and 5 a rotatable form of stand is shown in which the receptacles are supported from a perforated disk 10 loosely mounted between washers 11 secured on the lower end of the downwardly extending arm 12 of the sliding support.

In the operation of the invention the device is kept normally in its receded position beneath the chair arm and when it is desired to use the receptacles the handle 5 is pulled outwardly and the receptacles raised from their support and when finished with are replaced and the handle 5 pushed back to its innermost position.

It will have been seen from the foregoing that a most convenient means for providing each diner with an individual set of salt, pepper and other receptacles is provided at the minimum of expense.

It will of course be understood that the device may be constructed from material other than wire, such as aluminium, silver, etc., in which case the method of forming up will necessarily be slightly different but will be within the scope of the claims for novelty following.

-What I claim is 1. In a cruet attachment for cafeteria chairs and the like, in combination, a chair arm, a cruet stand support slidably arranged horizontally in spaced brackets secured to the under side of said arm, a cruet stand suspended from said support, a stop secured to said support between said brackets and limiting the horizontal movement of said cruet stand to the distance between said brackets and a handle. 2. In a cruet attachment for cafeteria chairs and the like, a chair arm, a cruet stand support sliding in brackets mounted on the under side of said arm and compris- Copies of this patent may be obtained for ing a wire folded double and having its strands bent outwardly at right angles between said brackets forming stops, and having one of its strands projecting outwardly beyond the chair edge and looped forming a handle and extending inwardly and with the remaining portion of said Wire being bent downwardly and outwardly forming loops, receptacles loosely supported in said loops and chains limiting the movement of said receptacles.

Signed at Toronto, Ont, this 27th day of July, 1918.
