Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed February 10, 1921. Serial No. 443,888.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, RoY HERBERT HOLMES,

a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Atlanta, in the county of Fulton and State of Georgia, have invented certa n new and useful Improvements in Combination Baby Chairs and Cribs, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved baby chair, and more particularly to an 1mroved combination baby chair and crib or Bed adapted for use either outdoors or indoors and desi nod to be readily converted to different positions for use as a OIlb or bed or as a chair or seat, as stated.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved support or frame for-suspending the combination chair and crib proper or receptacle by which the latter may be formed, which may be compactly folded for shipment or transportation; so that the same maybe carried from place to place, the same being adapted to be accommodated in a trunk or other apparel containing case if desired, without occupying a large amount of space.

A further object of the invention is to provide a combination baby chair and crib which may be suspended at any convenient place other than by means of the frame above referred to, and which embodies a simple, light and collapsible frame adapted to be readily changed from one position to the other and which will form a very comfortable bed or crib when extended, and when folded or collapsed to the position of a seat or chair, will by reason of the construction thereof, positively retain the child or infant in a comfortable position and against falling out, the complete device producing a silent nurse so to speak.

Other and further objects of my invention will become readily apparent to persons skilled in the art, from a consideration of the following description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device in position for use as a crib or bed,

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1 showing the top at the near side broken off as in Figure 1, andshowing the bed or crib folded or collapsed to produce a chair or seat.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the receptacle proper, from which the crib or chair is produced, and in position as a bed or crib,

Figure 4 is a fragmental vertical sectional View diametrically of the top portion of the supporting frame,

. Figure 5 is an folded, and

Figure 6 is a detail fragmental perspective view of the lower end of a suspension strap.

elevation of they frame Referring to the drawings, in detail, in

which like reference characters correspondin parts throughout the several views, there is showna frame corn rising a head or top plate 10 in the form 0 a circular disk, to which a series of foldable props 11 are hinged in opposed pairs at diametrically opposite points, as indicated at 12, near the circumferential edge thereof and adapted for outward swinging movement'or to be positioned coextensive and perpendicularly or at right angles to said plate, when the upper ends 13 will form shoulders to abut with the leaves of the hinges which are socured against the bottom face of the plate 10, the other leaves being secured against the outer faces of the props at the upper ends thereof. The props 11 are each preferably constructed of upper and lower sections 14 and 15 having their ends disposed in abutting relation as indicated at 16 when they are disposed in coextensive position and braced in this position by said abutting ends and hinges 17 which pivotally connect the same at the inside, the joints of the hinges belng dlsposed at the line of the meeting faces, 111 order that the frame may be extended with the legs or props diverging outwardly and downwardly in opposed inverted V-shaped formation when the device is in operative position, or converging toward their points of attachment to the head or top plate 10. On the other hand, the sections 15 may be folded upwardly against the sections 14, and when all of the legs or props are thus folded through the medium of the hinged sections thereof, the frame may be folded or collapsed in the manner shown in Figure 4 of the drawings so as to be very compact and thereby occupy a'minimum amount of space for shipment or transportation, in addition to the convenience in this folded up form, for carrying.

Centrally or axially of the head or top plate 10, there is supported a suspending hook 18, which as shown, has its shank 19 extending through an opening in the plate designate Patented Jan. '17, 1922.

and anchored against displacement by a I washer or' shoulder 20 at the bottom anda:

stra s or thereof suitable lock nut or nuts 21 at the top, -althou h it 's tobe understood that any other suitalile way of employing the hook in posi-' tionmay beemployed, This hook is designed to support a' series of V suspendin hangers 22, which may be 0 leat er, tape, or other suitable'materiah'of -flexibleor rig1d form as desired, and esp? s straps or hangers 22-.

cially and more desirably. the former. shown, the suspendin are referably' forme in two sections folded, on t emselvesintermediately of the lengths below a loop 23 formed at the upper end thereof for engagement with the hook 18 or other suspending device carriedbythe head or top plate as shown at 24, inorder, that displacementof the loops will be prevented, and in order that the length of all four straps or hangers will be uniform. At

their lower extremities, the straps are-- formed with suitable means for connecting the same to the receptacle or'basket forming the crib or bed, or the chair or seat proper,

' such means consisting of adjustable loops,

buckle and strap connections, metallic hooks v 25, or other suitable means affordin a con- .Iao p venient and secure connectionfor t is purose. I The receptacle or basket proper is indicated at 26 and. comprises a rim or frame 27 consisting of two U-shaped sections 28 and 29 of metal or other suitable-material disposed in reverse position andpivotally connected near their overlap ing extrem1- tiesas shown at 30, interme iately of theopposite or longer sides, thus producing an elon ated rectangular frame. At either side of t e pivotf30, the side extremities of the outer section are provided with recesses 31 and 32, the former bein designed to engage projecting pins or stu s-33 extending outfrom the overlapping portions at the. si e extremities of the section 29 which fits within the sides of the section 28, so as to brace the frame against collapsing or folding upwardly, that is, a ainst the sections'28 and 29 thereof fol ing upwardly toward each other when the device is suspended in the manner shown in Figure 1 of the drawings by engagement of the straps or hangers 22 through the medium of the engaging means 25- with the frame, as'

through the medium of suitable openings 34 provided near the corners thereof in op.- posed relation at the longer sides. The recesses 32 are designed toengage said pins or studs when said frame sections are collapsed or folded one within the other on the pivots 30 which are disposed in alinement at the opposite sides, the recesses 31 being disen aged from the pins by rip-' ping the en 5 of the frame sections an exthestuds and prevent-further,movement so that the-frame sections will beheldin alinement, after which the straps may be con-v nected therewith as shown in Figure 2.- In

this manner, the hangers or straps-will adjust themselves tothe osition of the reeep- Y tac'le' or basketand being of equal length, the frame ,will be horizontally supported or suspended. The frame serves -as means for and riveted or otherwise connected the attachment of a flexible canvas or cloth parts and permit the device to be-arranged in either of the two positions described.

When the device isin the osition shown in Figures 1 and 3, it is emp oyed as a bed or crib and when folded from this position to the position shown in Figure 2, so that one end of the cloth portion will be received withinthe other in an invertedposition, it will form a. seat or baby chair when susended. as shown in Figure 2. In order to insure safety against the child falling out, a cloth section or bib 36 is secured to the bottom as indicated at 37 alon the edge or one end thereof and said bib. is enlarged at opposite sidestoward the free end so that the extensions 38 may-be folded against the sides of the collapsed receptacle or hasket 35 to close the adjacent end and form a crotch portion with openings 39 through which the legs ma be extended in order to insure a comforta le sitting position, with the legs hanging downwardly. The free ends of the extension are provided with suitable means as indicated at 40 for securing lugs and a pillow being employed if de- When the device is: extended as the same against the opposite sides of. the

sired. Of course, the covering and the pillow form nopart of the invention and are omitted for the sake of clearness. -When the device is in the position shown in Figure 2, the endof the cloth receptacle forms the back of the chair or seat, in addition to the sides, thus bracing the abdomen, although a therewith if desired.

It will thus be manifest that I have provided a very simple andeconomical form illow may be used in connectionof combined bed and seat for the purposes stated, the straps if flexible serving to render the device a bouncer, while also permitting it to be agitated in either direction or swung slightly when suspended from the foldable frame in the manner shown in F igures 1 and 2 of the drawings.

In view of the foregoing, it'is thought that the'use of the device will be readily understood and in view of the-simplicity and prac-' tical value, that it will readily commend itself to use.
