A. MILLER ROCKING mm Filed July 28, 1924 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Sept. 29, 1925.

UNITED STATES ADOLPI-I MILLER, or KIRKwoon, IssoUnI.

ROCKING-CHAIR.

Application filed July 28,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, AnoLrH MILLER, a citizen. of the United States, and resident of the city of Kirkwood, county of St. Louis, and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rocking- Chairs, of which the following is a specification containing a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

My invention relates to improvements in rocking chairs and has for its primary object the construction of a rocking chair especially designed for lawn uses.

In the drawings Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my improvement;

Fig. 2 is a top plan View;

Fig. 3 is a front View;

Fig. 4 is an elevation of one of the standards with a locking device, the chair proper being shown in dotted lines.

Referring to the drawings- 5 indicates the back of my improved chair which is made out of board preferably; 6 the arms, 7 the bottom or seat, 8 indicates the side members to which the bottom or seat is secured. The front ends of the members 8 are secured to. the members 9, and their rear ends are secured to the rockers 10. The rockers 10 are provided with a series of corrugations 11. 12 indicates the supporting base of my improved chair which is composed of corrugated side members 12, and cross members 13. Secured to the front end of the side members 13 is a pivoted foot rest 14 which may be folded back when not in use, as illustrated by dotted lines in Fig. 1.

It will be noted in this connection that the corrugations of the rockers 10 are adapted to fit and ride in the corrugations of the side members 12 Secured to each side member 12 by screws or bolts or in any other suitable mechanical manner, are bifurcated standards or supports 15. In the upper portion of each standard or support 15 is formed a curved slot 16. Mounted transversely in the members 8 is a rod 17 this rod 17 has its ends projecting through the slots 16 and on each end of said rod is a nut 18. The purpose, or function of this rod 17 is to maintain or hold the corrugated rockers 10 in engagement with the corrugations on the side members 12*. It should 924. Serial no. 728,622.

be noted in this connection that slots 16 are wider than the diameter of the rod 17 so that when the chair is rocked this rod will freely travel in the slots. The rear walls of the slots 16 form a stop for the rearward movement of the rocker and the forward walls of the slots 16 form a stop for the forward movement of the'rocker. By means of this construction it is impossible for the rocker to tip backward or forward beyond certain limits.

19 indicates a latch plate, mounted on each standard, the lower edge of which is provided with a series of notches 20 and the upper portion is provided with bayonet slots 21 through which screws or bolts are inserted for securing the latch plates to the standard 15.

In Fig. l is shown the latch plates elevated and out of engagement with the rod 17, whereas in Fig. 4: is shown the latch plate lowered and in engagement with said rod. The purpose of these latches is to hold the rocker in any desired adjustment when used as an ordinary chair.

22 indicates handles for operating the latch plates 19.

The rod 17 not only performs the function heretofore specified but also connects the upper portion of the chair to the base so that the base and upper portion will not become disconnected when the chair is moved. The base forms an even surface for the rocker and makes the chair especially desirable for lawn purposes as it is well known that an ordinary rocking chair is practically useless for lawn purposes on account of uneven surfaces of the ground and th; rockers sinking in the earth if itis too so t.

By the construction previously pointed out, the rocker is at all times maintained in engagement with the base and the corrugated base prevents slipping of one relative to the other and always maintains the rocker in the proper and desired adjustment for service.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim is 1. A chair composed of a base including a pair of side members provided with corrugations in their upper edges, cross members, pivoted foot rests secured to said side members, rockers having corrugations in their lower edges adapted to fit the corrugations of the base, standards secured to said base provided with curved slots in their upper ends, a'rod carried by the rocker and located in said slots, and latches secured to said standards adapted to engage with said rod for holding the rocker in a stationary position.

2. A chair composed of corrugated side members, transverse members for connecting said side members, a chair provided with corrugated rockers adapted to engage in the corrugations in the said members, standards secured to said side members and provided With curved slots in their upper ends, a rod carried by the rocker and located in said slots, the end Walls of the slots and the rod answering as stops for the rearward and forward movement of the rocker, a latch carried by each standard adapted to engage With said rod for holding the chair in an adjusted position.

In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification.

ADOLPH MILLER.
