1 Claim.

This invention relates to tables but more particularly to tables for use out-of-doors over which a sun shade or umbrella is supported, and an object is to produce a simple and inexpensive table which is adapted to support the pole of an umbrella or sun shade without the necessity of forcing the pole into the ground or other support.

Lawn tables heretofore in use have been apertured centrally to receive the pole of the umbrella which affords the desired shade and protection for the table. It has been necessary, however, to force the pole into the ground in order that it remain in upright position. The tables have not been able to retain the pole in vertical position. This is not only troublesome but is objectionable since it impairs the appearance of the lawn. As will hereinafter appear this invention overcomes the above objectionable features and a table is produced which is not only simple and inexpensive to manufacture and is attractive in appearance, but is capable of supporting an umbrella pole without the necessity of its being driven into the ground.

For purposes of illustration but not of limitation, an embodiment of the invention is shown on the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the table and umbrella standard; and

Figure 2 is an enlarged transverse section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1. V

The illustrated embodiment of the invention comprises a table having a top 10 which may be of metal or any suitable material and located in the center of the top is an aperture 11, through which a pole 12 is adapted to extend. An umbrella or sun shade 13 is mounted on the pole 12 for affording shade and protection to the table.

Secured as by rivets to the underside of the top 10 are four wrought iron legs 14 which are approximately U-shaped and are arranged with their intermediate portions 15 inwardly. It will be observed that the sides of the U-shaped legs 14 incline outwardly from the intermediate portions 15 so that the latter are disposed approximately centrally between the top 10 and supporting smface of the table.

Mounted between the portions 15 of the legs is a metal sleeve 16 secured thereto by rivets 18 and disposed in alignment with the top aperture 11. It is apparent that the pole 12 extends through the sleeve 16 and is thus supported in upright position. It is unnecessary to drive the pole into the ground since this support is adequate.

The lower ends of the legs are curved inwardly as indicated at 17, thereby providing not only an attractive appearance but elevating the table slightly and obtaining feet which will not dig into a lawn.

The open ends of the U legs 14 are connected on by substantially S-shaped braces 19 which may be riveted in place.

A cardinal feature of the invention consists in so supporting the umbrella pole 12 that it is unnecessary for the lower end to be driven into the ground. In fact, the table may be supported on a hard surface, such as concrete or wood, and the pole rest against such surface since the table is so constructed that it will retain the pole in upright position. 10

Numerous changes in details of construction and arrangement may be made without departing from the spirit ofthe invention.

What I claim is:

An umbrella table comprising a top having a central aperture, top-supporting means including a plurality of U-shaped supporting members having substantially flat intermediate portions extending toward each other, said intermediate portions being spaced from said top and arranged in the region directly beneath said aperture, legs on each U-shaped supporting member inclining in opposite directions with the upper leg inclining upwardly and outwardly to said top and the lower leg inclining downwardly and outwardly to the table-supporting surface, an open-ended sleeve connecting said intermediate portions and disposed in alignment with said aperture for receiving an umbrella pole, and bracing members respectively connecting the outer end portions of the legs of said U-shaped supporting members;
