CHAIR Filed Feb. 18, 1955- CH. COLLINS INVENTOR.
ATTORNEYfi Patented June 8, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Tex.
Application February 18, 1935, Serial No. 6,921
2 Qlaiins.
My invention relates to seats for chairs but more particularly to seats employed in chairs for children.
It is an object of my invention to provide a seat 5 for children's chairs which will be convenient and safe in its use.
I desire to so form the seat that a child may sit safely therein and rest its feet upon a support in the chair and to allow the child at the same time to sit erect in the chair in a comfortable and healthful position.
It is a further object to provide a chair in which the seat is cut away so as to accommodate the legs of the child and to allow the use of the chair for children of different ages and sizes.
I desire to provide a chair seat which will allow the child to use the chair until it has. reached an age where it may safely and conveniently use the ordinary chairs in the household.
It is a further object to provide an adjustable foot rest for the child which will allow the use of the chair during the different periods in the growth of the child.
In the drawing herewith, Fig. 1 is a top plan view partly in perspective showing the construction ofa preferred form of seat.
Fig. 2 is a similar view showing a slightly different embodiment thereof.
Fig. 3 is a side view in section along one side of the chair illustrating the use of the chair by children of larger size.
Fig. is a perspective view of a-chair such as is disclosed in Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a chair employfirm position in the chair with its feet resting on a support. In the type of chair disclosed in this specification, I have tried to overcome these ob; jections. In Figs. 1, 3, and 4 I have shown a type of seat which is illustrated as applied to the ordinary high chair. 7 is supported upon legs 2 in the usual manner, having rounds or braces 3 between adjacent legs. The seat has a back member which is shown as port 5 between them. This back member is se- There is a seat I whichmade up of two side members 4 with a back supcured in the usual manner to the rearward side of the seat, the side supports extending through openings 5 in the seat.
There are side arms I to the chair which are shown as being supported at their forward ends upon posts or supports 8, the lower end of which are extended through openings 9 in the seat to form a firm connection with the seat.
These side arms serve as a support for the usual table in, which is connected to the forward ends of curved arms II, which are pivoted at their upper ends upon laterally projecting pins I2 on the back supports 4.. This type of table connection with the chair is well known in the art. It enables the table to be thrown upwardly over the back of the chair out of the way of the child when the child is in the seat.
The seat portion of the chair is formed with deep recesses in the forward side to receive the legs of the child while seated. These recesses l3 are shown particularly in Fig. 1. I have formed two spaced recesses of this character cut deeply into the forward side of the seat and having their sides rounded somewhat as shown at M,
so as to add to the comfort of the child. I thus In I upon the arms of the chair and assists somewhat in holding the child in position. The forward projection l6 of the seat therefore serves not only to add to the comfort and safety of the child but furnishes an anchoring support for the lower end of the strap I1. 7
The feet of the child which is seated in a chair of this character are adapted to rest upon a foot-rest I 8 or IS. The foot-rest I8 is adapted for use with smaller children. It is secured to the rearward side of the forward legs 2 of the chair by means of brackets 23 secured to the legs of the chair by through bolts 20. I provide a plurality of openings 2| in the chair legs'which enable the bolt 20 to be extended through the openings 2| at the desired level so as to accommodate the length of the legs'of the child and to be adjustable for extending as the child grows.
The lower foot-rest i5 is placed on the forward side of the legs 2 of the chair and secured in position by brackets 23'. This foot-rest is not shown .as adjustable, it being placed in position to accommodate the foot of a larger child and it is understood that when the child has reached a size such that the foot-rest I9 is uncomfortable, the child will be large enough to use a chair of the ordinary type.
In Fig.5 I have shown how the forward portion of the chair seat may be formed with a single recess 22 therein. This seat 24, as shown best in Fig. 2, is adapted for use with any type of chair and it is preferably adapted for use with chairs of the character shown in Fig. 5.
Said chair is shown as a, rocking chair having legs 25 and 26 at the rearward and forward sides respectively and rockers 21 on the lower ends of the legs. The chair is provided with a back member 28 of ordinary construction.
may be comfortable without the necessity, as is usually the case, of, sitting forward in-the chair,
so as to place the childs feet upon the floor. Few chairs of ordinary construction will permit of a comfortable position of the child in the chair while the chair is being used, but by so recessing the forwardside of the seat in combination with the foot-rest I am enabled to provide a chair which is comfortable and restful for the child.
It will be seen that the type of seat herein shown is particularly adapted for use by children and is not only safe and comfortable to the child but enables the child to assume a more health ful position in the chair without discomfort. As
will be seen particularly in Fig. 3, the child may rest and still sit comfortably in the chair when the child has reached a somewhat advanced age. However, where the child is smaller it still may, because of the recesses in the chair seat, sit
well back in the chair and rest its feet upon the upper foot-support. The seat is therefore adapted for use until the child has become fairly well grown and the high chair is no longer desirable. It is peculiarly adapted for the growing child. The advantages of the construction will be apparent.
What I claim as new is:
1. A chair including forward legs and rearward legs, a back, a seat, a table in front of said seat, and a plurality of vertically 'spaced foot rests on said forward legs below said seat, the upper of said 'foot rests being extended rearwardly of said legs and the lower rest being extended forwardly thereof, said seat having a pair of recesses cut deeply therein on the forward side, the rearward sides of said recesses being spaced a substantial distance behind said forward legs to permit a child seated thereon to extend its legs through said recessesto rest upon one of said foot rests depending upon the size of said child.
2. A chair including a pair of forward and a pair of rearward legs, a seat thereon, a back for said seat, arms at each side of said chair, a table hinged to said back and adapted to rest upon said arms, a lower foot rest adjustable vertically along the forward side of said legs, another foot rest above said lower rest adjustable along the rearward side of said legs, said seat having two spaced deeply cut recesses in the forward side thereof to receive the legs of a child seated thereon and permit children of different sizes seated in said chair to engage their feet upon one or the other of said foot rests in adjusted position thereof, and a flexible member securing said table to said seat at a point between said recesses.
