1 Claim.
This invention relates to bedsteads, but more particularly to ornamental structure for bedsteads, and an object is to produce a head or foot board for a bedstead adapted to receive a decorative sheet or panel which, for example, may be similar to or blend in with the decorative scheme of a room to match, for example, drapes or wall papers and otherwise enhance the attractiveness and beauty of the structure, an aim being to enable the structure to be inexpensively manufactured, easily assembled and having the new and improved means by which the decorative portion can be replaced for changing the scheme or decoration or the like.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter appear, and for purposes of illustration but not of limitation, an embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a front perspective view of a bedstead in which the head board is provided with the decorative features;
Figure 2 is a rear end elevation of the head board shown in Figure 1; and
Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view on the line 33 of Figure 1.
The illustrated embodiment of the invention comprises a bed I0 having front legs II and a head board I2 which at its lower end embodies the rear supporting legs I3. Formed in the upboard I2, particularly in that region above the bed covering is an opening I4 which is longitudinally elongate. On the inner side of the opening I 4 and suitably secured by screws to the inside edge portion thereof, is a molding I5 which is approximately one-half the thickness of the head board and the lower edge of the molding slopes inwardly as indicated at It. A suitable fabric ll, as shown, covers the top of the head board and the front face thereof, as well as the molding, and is brought up on the inside of the molding and secured in any suitable manner. A panel IB of any suitable material such as fiber board, and of a size substantially to fill the opening I4, is inserted from the rear end of the head board.
Before the panel I8 is placed in the opening I4, a panel of relatively thin transparent plastic material I9 is placed in the opening I4 as shown, to abut against the rear face or ledge of the molding I5 to which it may be secured as by tacks. On the front wall of thin padding 20 of any suitable material such as cotton or kapok, covered with textile fabric to make a relatively thin resilient cushion. In front of the padding 2G is a sheet 2| which may be of decorated fabric or wall paper containing a design to blend in with the decorative scheme of the room, such for example as a fabric similar or identical with the drapes in the room or wall paper of the room. The sheet 2! is brought over the padding 2i) and around a portion of the rear face of the panel It as shown. Thus when the panel I8 containing the padding and the decorative sheet is forced in against the transparent plastic sheet, is should fit relatively snugly and is held in place by a series of pivoted fasteners 22 connected by screws to the head board surrounding the opening I4.
From the above description, it will be ap parent that a unique and simple means for decorating the head board of a bedstead is provided which enables the decorative scheme for the room to be readily and conveniently changed as desired. The plastic panel militates against the decorative sheet becoming soiled or dirty and the padding insures that the panel and associated parts will fit snugly and neatly within the opening. Manifestly, the foot board of a bedstead may be similarly constructed to afford the unique decorating feature.
It is to be understood that numerous changes in details of construction, arrangement, operation and choice of materials may be effected without departing from the spirit of the invention especially as defined in the appended claim.
What we claim is:
In a bedstead, a head board having an opening extending from front to rear therethrough in the upper portion thereof, said head board having edges surrounding said opening, said edges being fiat and extending from front to rear substantially at right angles to the plane of said headboard, a molding of closed configuration removably secured to said edges, said molding having a front portion disposed adjacent the front of said head board and a rear portion extending generally at right angles to said edges of said head board between the front and rear thereof whereby to provide a rearwardly facing ledge, a
the panel I8 is a relatively 3 sheet of transparent plastic material fitting said opening and abutting against the rear face of said ledge, a rigid panel fitting said opening and disposed in rear of said sheet, the rear face of the panel being substantially flush with the rear 0 References Cited in the file of this patent UNITED STATES PATENTS Number 2,075,319 2,500,511 2,508,506
