Description

March 13, 1951 N. NIDETCH ET AL CHAIR RoR CHILDREN Filed March 19, 1947 INVENT @WMF Patented Mar. 113, 1951 CHAIR FOR CHILDREN Nathan Nidetch and Harold Mandel, Brooklyn,
N. Y., assignors by direct and mesneassignments, to Starrel Company, Inc., Brooklyn, N. Y., a corporation of New York l Application March 19, 1947, Serial No. 735,561 2 claims. (ci. 15s- 131) This invention relates to chairs for children.
The object of the invention is to do without the use of the known high chair, as this is a single use article of furniture, and when not in use consumes space which is valuable in apartments of the smaller sizes.
The invention consists of an auxiliary seat of a height determined by the diierence between inside height of a standard kitchen table and the height of the seat of a standard kitchen chair, less the approximate space for the limbs of a child, so that the child can sit on the auxiliary seat with comfort without having the table obstruct the limbs oi the child. The auxiliary seat is readily stored and as readily applied to an ordinary kitchen chair, and its use enables the child to sit similar to a grown-up at the table, without the use of the known and space occupying high chair.
The invention will be further described hereinafter, reference being made to the accompanying drawings, and the invention will be finally pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings,
Fig. 1 is a perspectiveview of the improved auxiliary seat;
Fig. 2 is a side view of the same, supported by a standard chair adjacent a standard table;
t Fig. 3 is a vertical fragmentary section on linev 3-3 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic drawing showing a feature of operation of the auxiliary seat;
Fig. 5 is a sectional view of a modified form of seat, and
Fig. 6 is a section taken on line G-I of Fig. 5. Similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the drawings.
Referring to the drawings, the known table, as a kitchen table, is shown by I0. The known chair, as a kitchen chair, is shown by II. Each has generally a standard height, about 30 inches from the top surface to the ioor, for the table, and about 17 inches, from the seat of the chair to the floor, for the chair. The table usually has a vertical board if of about 3 inches. This leaves a space of about inches from the lower edge of the board I2 of the table I0 to the seat of the chair II. l
The invention consists of an auxiliary seat i5, which is a separate article of furniture, as shown in Fig. 1. It has, preferably, an upholstered seat portion I6, of a height of about 3 or 31/2 inches, determined to allow the limbs of thechild to freely dispose themselves above the seat portion and below the edge portion of the 2 board i2, to avoid any objectionable restriction from the table. The seat portion i6 has a bottom exterior surface of a material which provides friction with the seat of the chair, when downward pressure, as by the weight of the'child, is applied to the seatportion, whereby the seat I5 is anchored, so to say, to the seat of the chair,
' and the seat does no t slip. when the child is` seated in position. The seat I5 has a hollow square or rectangle `Il of boards or timber, with a bottom I8 secured thereto, the interior of the frame Il above the bottom I 8, being empty. A leather like top covering 20 of curved form also encloses said material, and extends over the outer part of the frame Il having its edges held by the bottom I6. The exterior of the bottom I8, has a layer of cement 2i, to which adhesive, a cloth layer 22 of corduroy or the like is applied. This character of cloth increasespthe frictional factor with the seat of the chair. Any other suitable material as friction rubber may be substituted for the cloth layer. The pressure factor for increasing the frictional hold is indicated by the lower arrows 25 in Fig. 4, the upper arrows indicating the weight, as W. The space to allow freedom of movement of the limbs of the child is indicated by A in Fig. 4, as this determines the height of the seat I5. kThe horizontal plane of the upper surface of the arm 30 of the seat I5 is at all times below the horizontal plane passing through the edge I2a of the table board I2, as shown by the dot dash line 30a.
To the rear of the seat portion, upright and preferably inclined stays 26, are secured by screws 2l, the upper ends having secured thereto, a back piece 28. The lateral sides of the seat, have uprights 29 secured thereto, which support arms 30, which have their ends secured to the rear stays 26, to form arms for the seat I5. Fastening means 5 hold the arms and back to the uprights.
A modified form of seat is shown in Fig. 5, in which an openable top 32 is hinged at 33 to the frame I l. IThe front part of the lid seat 32 has a fastening device 311i, engaging its counterpart 35, at the inner part of the front of the frame Il. The bottom of this modified form of seat is the same as described in connection with Fig. 1. The empty space covered by the lid 32 may be used for the storage of the childs napkin, silver. or dishes, or other articles.
The essential feature is the replaceable seat of a height to enable the child to sit at a table like a grown-up, without any restriction to the limbs of the child, and at the same time have the bottom of the seat provide a friction surface throughout the bottom, which bottom at the same time protects any painted finish or any upholstery of the supporting chair. In smaller urban living quarters, space is scarce, and when occupied by the usual childs chair, the quarters are encumbered, as such a high chair has no other use. With the use of this improvement, the seat takes up little room and can be temporarily stored in a kitchen closet, the kitchen chair being used for its general purposes in the meantime. The seat I5, has also an educational value to the child, as it enables it to simulate and assimulate the manners of a grownup.
We have described several forms of our invention, but obviously various changes may be made in the details disclosed without departing from the spirit of the invention as set out in the following claims.
We claim:
1. An auxiliary chair, adapted to be placed on an adults chair to permit a young child to sit at a table, said auxiliary chair consisting of a seat having a iiat friction pad providing the entire lower surface of the seat, a back extending upwardly from said seat when in use and a pair of arms, connected to an intermediate portion of .the back and having upper portions in the same plane, and each arm having a portion extending from the seat to the forward part of the rst mentioned portion of the arm.
2. An auxiliary chair of the type called for in claim 1, in which the pad has a substantially straight rear edge and substantially straight side edges and the rectilinear distance from said rear edge to the front extremities of the arms and the rectilinear distances from either side edge of the pad to the upper surface of the arm on the opposite side of the auxiliary chair are such that when the latter is in normal use, with the arms disposed beneath a table top, a tipping movement of the auxiliary chair would bring an arm into Contact with the table before overbalancing of the auxiliary chair could take place.
