COMBINATION BATHTUB AND DRESSING TABLE Filed Nov. 26; 1957 2 Sheets-sheaf. 2

William C. Baxl'er INVENTOR ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 20, 1938 William C. Baxter, Rochester, N. Y., assignor to Trimble Nursery-Land Furniture, Inc., Rochester, N. Y., a. corporation of New York Application November 26, 1937, Serial No. 176,546

2 Claims.

' This invention relates to an infants combination bath tub and dressing table, of the general type including a folding stand and tub combined with a dressing table that is positionable horizontally over the tub and stand or which can be swung upwardly to an inoperative vertical position at the rear of the tub, and has for its object to afford a simple and efficient means for pivotally supporting the table on the stand.

More particularly, the invention has for its purpose to provide a construction that can be economically manufactured and which permits the necessary swinging movement of the table from horizontal to upright position while also acting in conjunction with the table to hold the stand in folded position when desired.

Another object of the invention is to provide a construction for pivotally supporting the table in such a manner that a mother can readily move 20 the table from horizontal to vertical position, or

vice versa, while holding an infant, and which also insures the dressing table being maintained in its upright inoperative position against accidental displacement, requiring a definite pulling action to release it, before moving to horizontal position.

To these and other ends, the invention consists in the construction and arrangement of parts that will appear clearly from the following description when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, the novel features being pointed out in the claims at the end of the specification.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a combination bath tub and dressing table constructed in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention and illustrating a dressing table in horizontal position above the tub, resting upon the stand;

Fig. 2 is a similar perspective view of the tub and stand with the dressing table in its upright or inoperative position; Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the stand folded with the tub collapsed between the leg frames, and the dressing table swung downwardly into parallel relation with the leg frames, holding the stand in folded relation;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged vertical sectional view taken through the rear guard rail of the dressing table just inside one of the end rails, and illustrating the relation of one of the pivoting members when the dressing table is in horizontal position as in Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a similar view when the dressing table is elevated as in Fig. 2, and

Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view in a horizontal plane on line 66 of Fig. 5.

Referring more particularly to the drawings in which like reference numerals refer to the same parts throughout the several views, I and 2 designate the front and rear leg frames of a folding cross-legged stand between the top rails of which is mounted a collapsible tub 3. supportable onthe stand is a dressing table comprising end rails 4, a front cross-rail 5, and a rear guard rail 6, 'while I designates a canvas or. fabric covering that is stretched over the top surfaces of the end rails 4 and front rail 5 and under the bottom surface of the rear guard rail 6, being attached to the back face of said guard rail 6 in any suitable manner, as shown in Fig. 4.

The dressing table just described is pivotally mounted upon the folding stand, and to accomplish this is provided with a pair of pivoting members each of which is preferably of a generally U-shaped formation. Each pivoting member is formed of heavy wire or other suitable material, and includes a portion 8 that extends along one side of an end rail 4 of the dressing table frame and is fixedly secured thereto by a metal clip 9, while Ill designates a portion of the pivoting member that depends from the rear of the dressing table at approximately a right angle thereto and terminates 'in a right angled stop portion H, from which extends an angular terminal portion I2 that is pivotally connected to the adjacent leg by having a portion bent at right angles and extending into an opening of the leg, as shown in Figs. 4 and 5.

One of these pivoting members is arranged at each end of the dressing table and pivotally con-. nected to one leg of the rear leg frame, permitting the table to swing from the horizontal position shown in Fig. 1 to the upright position illustrated in Fig. 2. In order to limit the upward movement of the dressing table, and retain it in its upright or inoperative position, there is provided a stop member consisting of a U-shaped spring-metal clip l3 carried by a base portion M which is permanently secured to the leg. The spring clip i3 engages the stop portion ll of the pivoting member when the latter reaches the position illustrated in Fig. 5, and thus prevents any further rearward movement of the dressing table, which latter is held in its upright position against accidental displacement by the frictional engagement of the spring clip l3 with the circular stop portion H of the pivoting member, a

the pivoting members is of such a length, as

shown in Fig. 3, as to span the leg frames when they are folded into juxtarelation, so as to permit the table to swing downwardly into parallel relationwith the leg frames and to maintain the latter in folded relation. In order to permit this swinging movement of the dressing table from the folded position of Fig. 3 to the operative position of Fig. 1, without undue friction or binding, the intermediate portions Ill of the pivoting members are of such length that when in the position shown in Fig. 1, the dressing table frame is somewhat above the top rails of the folding stand. In order to permit the dressing table to lie in a horizontal position, the end rails of the frame are provided on their under sides toward the front with U-shaped metal projections l5 which are arranged to engage the top rail of the forward leg frame and rest thereon. The rear portion of the dressing table is spaced above the top rail of the rear leg frame when in horizontal position and is supported by the pivoting members in the manner shown.

While the invention has been described with reference to a particular embodiment, it is not restricted to the detailed arrangement shown, and this application is intended to cover any modifications or departures coming within the purposes of the improvement or the scope of the following claims.

I claim:

1. The combination with a folding stand including pivotally connected leg frames and a. dressing table located between the ends of the leg frames, of pivoting members for connecting the dressing table to one of the leg frames, each of said pivoting members including a portion rigidly attached to the dressing table and depending from the rear of the latter, a stop portion extending thence forwardly at approximately a right angle to said depending portion, a terminal portion that projects upwardly from said stop portion and is pivotally secured to the leg frame, and a stop member on the leg frame engageable with the stop portion of one of said pivoting members when the table reaches approximately an upright position, said depending portion spanning and overlying the leg frames when they are folded.

2. The combination with a folding stand including pivotally connected leg frames and a dressing table located between the ends of the leg frames, of wire pivoting members for connecting the dressing table to one of the leg frames, each of said wire pivoting members being of generally U-shaped formation having one side fixedly attached'to the table, the other side pivotally connected to the leg frame, and the intermediate connecting portion adapted to span the tops of the leg frames in close proximity thereto when the stand is folded, acting to hold the stand folded with the table in depending parallel relation to the leg frames, and a U- shaped clip secured to the leg frame and yieldably engageable with a portion of one of said wire pivoting members when the table is in upright position and acting to retain the latter frictionally against accidental displacement.
