FOLDING AND RECLINING CHAIR.
SPEIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 268,941, dated December 12, 1882,
Appiicanon flied August '11, ieee. (Model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, WEIMER G. SANDs, of Reading, inthe county ot' Berks and State of Pennsj-'h'ania, have invented certain Im provements in Folding and Reclining Chairs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to folding and reclining chairs; and itconsists in various features and details, .hereinafter fully set forth.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a side elevation ot' the chair with the back in an upright position and the foot-rest thrown down ont ot' position for use. Fig. 2 is a similar side view', showing the back inclined and the foot-rest elevated to form a reclining-ch air; Fig. 3, a view illustrating the manner of folding the chair; Fig. 4, a view ofthe chair folded for storage or shipment.
The object of my invention is to furnish aV simple and cheap chair which may be adjusted bythe occupant to and held at any desired inclination by merely bearing against the footboard or the back without rising from the chair orvmaterially altering his position, and which may also be folded into compactshape for shipment or storage. 'lo accomplish' this object I construct my improved chair as shown in the drawings, in which- A B represent the legs crossed and pivoted, and Vin all respects resembling the legs ot' the com mon cam p-stool, except that the front legs, A, are made to extend higher than the back legs, B, and are formed with a slot, a, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. y
C represents the back, which is sustained by pivot-pins orjournals b, extending through the slots a ot' the front legs; and D indicates the seatframe, which is jointed at its rear to the lower end of the back frame, at some distance below the pivots b, and is sustained atits front by a rod, o, connecting the upper forward ends of the rear legs, B, and' passing through slots d in the side rails of the seat-frame. The rod c thus serves, in connection with rounds or crossrails e,to connect the two sides of the sup porting-frame of the chair, besides sustaining lthe front of' the seat.
E representsa jointed brace or linkextending from the upper end of the leg B to a point at about the sanne height, or a little above, on the leg A, said brace servin g to limit the separation of the legs A B, and by reason of the joint f permitting the two sections of the brace to rise and fold together when the chair is folded.
F represents one ot' the arms of the chair, which is supported about midway between its ends by an ear," g, pivoted upon the same bolt or pinf which forms the pivot or joint of brace E. The arms rest at their rear ends upon the legs A, and to their forward ends are hung or jointed byjoints or pivots h the side bars or irons, t', of a foot-rest, G, which irons are likewise pivoted or jointed to the sides of the seatframe D, near its forward edge, as shown atj.V
The pivots 'i formthe center ot' motion of the foot-rest, about which it swings up or down; and assaid rest is connected with the seat D below these pivots, and as the seat is arranged to slide upon the rod c when actuated by the pivoted or rocking back, to which it is jointed, it will .be seen that as the back is thrown toward a horizontal position the seat will be slid forward upon the rod andthe foot-rest will be swung upward about its pivot 't'. Vhen, on the other hand, the back is raised or caused to stand upright thev seat will slide backward and draw down the foot-rest. The occupant ot' the chair can therefore, by resting his weight mainly -upon the seat D, and pressing with his back against the back G, throw the same down-- ward and produce a reclining chair or cot, sufficient pressure only being applied by the legs to the foot-rest to prevent the too sudden fall ofthe back. It' it be desired to raise the back and depress the foot-board, it is merely necessary to withdraw the pressure from the back and apply it to the foot-board.
It is important that the slot-sd be not long enough to permit the back to assume a horizontal position or to come in line with the seat when the pivots are at the bottom ot slots a., as in that case the upper end would fall to the ground. I therefore make the slots of such length that the joint or pivot connecting the back and seat shall always stand belowa line passing through journals or pivots b and rod o when said pivots b are resting in the lower ends ofslots a. When,however, it is desired to fold the chair the journals or pins l are raised to the top of slots tt, which allows the pivots or joints connecting the seat and back to come into line with the journals b and rod c, and to swing upward above them, as indicated in Fig.
IOO
ILL
claim is- 1. In combination with tbelegs A Batlle for- 5 mer having slots a. the back C, pivoted in said slots and connected at its lower extremity with the seat, substantially as set forth, whereby the pivots of the back may be raised and the back turned over against the legs, substantially as explained.
l2. In combination with the legs A B and a seat supported thereby,jcinted braces Eindependent of the sea-t, connecting the legs. as shown, Wl1ereb1 the legs are permitted to fold together, but are prevented from spreading too far apart.
3. In combination with the crossed legsA B, jointed braces E, connecting the legs above the point of crossing, and a seat, arms F, pivzo oted to the braces at the joint f of the latter,
cesena whereby the arms are caused to fold closely againsttbechair-framewhen'thelatterisfolded.
4. In combination with crossed legs A B, braces E. and arms F, the seat D,jointed to the pivoted back C, and the foot-rest G, suspended from the arms F and jointed or pivoted to the seat, substantially as shown and described.
5. rlhe herein-described chair. consisting of' legs A B, cnnected by braces E, and the former having slots a, arms F, pivoted to the braces E, footrest Gr, suspended from arms F, sliding seat- D, jointed or pivoted to foot-rest Gr, and back C, pivoted in slots a, and connect ed with the seat, substantially as shown and described.
