TABLES OF HORIZONTALLY NESTABLE FORM Filed Dec. 2', 1955 V INVENTOR. Horns-M62 (Yams-CH United States Patent TABLES OF HORIZONTALLY NESTABLE FORM Adrian A. Munsch, Wexford, Pa.

Application December 2, 1955, Serial No. 550,533

2 Claims. (Cl. 155-124) The invention relates to a combined table and chair structure that can easily be moved around, as for example past cafeteria counters to receive food and then moved elsewhere in the dining area.

One object of my invention is to provide a combined table and chair structure that is of light weight and wherein the table top need have only two legs, the chair itself having legs that supplement the table legs, since the chair frame is connected to the table frame.

Another object of my invention is to provide a structure of the character referred to wherein the parts can readily be folded-and assembled in a small space.

In the accompanying drawing, Figure l'is a plan view of the combined table and chair structure;

Fig. 2 is a rear elevational view thereof, with the chair moved in beneath the table top, and

Fig. 3 is a side elevational view of the structure of Fig. 1, with the chair moved out to operative position.

The structure comprises a table frame which consists simply of a tubular bar having horizontal portions 5 and 6 in angular relation to each other and in a common horizontal plane, the portions 6 being extended downwardly to form a leg 7 that has a foot which is provided with a caster 8. The longitudinally-extending portion 5 of the tube is bent in a generally vertical direction at 5a to serve as a leg portion and then bent at 9 toward the forward edge of the table, to form a foot portion for this leg, said foot portion being provided with a caster 10. A table top 11 has its rear edge hinged at 12 to the member 5.

A lever-like arm 14 is welded at one end to a sleeve 15 which is rotatable on the leg member 5a and is vertically supported thereon by a collar 16 that is secured to the lower part of the member 5a. At its other end, the member 14 is pivotally supported upon a collar 16a which is rigidly secured to a socket 17. A leg 18 extends through the socket 17 and has some vertical movement therein, it being normally held off the floor by a spring 19. The socket 17 constitutes part of the seat frame and seat bars 20 are welded thereto at their inner ends. The seat bars are bent upwardly to form back frame members 21. Rear legs 22 are welded to the members 20 and are provided with casters 23 that serve as feet.

A seat 24 is hingedly connected at 25 to the seat frame 20 and rests upon the upper enlarged end 26 of the leg 18. A back 27 is secured to the upright members 21 of the seat frame.

When the arm 14 is swung from the position of Fig. 2 to that of Figs. 1 and 3, the chair will be moved from beneath the table. When the user is seated, the seat 24 will be depressed against the spring 19 to push the leg 18 against the floor and thus hold the table and chair against movement of the table and chair through rolling of their casters.

The chair back is made sufiiciently low that it will move beneath the table top when swung to the position shown in Fig. 2. By having the tabletop and the seat hinged at their rear edges, the tables can be nested or telescoped somewhat when not in use.

I claim as my invention:

1. A combined table and chair structure comprising a table top having two legs adjacent to two of its corners, a chair frame member pivotally connected on a vertical axis, to one of the legs, a seat pivoted at its rear edge on the chair frame, legs for the chair frame, the seat being at such height that it will be moved toward and from a position beneath the table top, when the chair frame is swung about its pivot, the chair frame legs serving as a substitute for other legs for the table top, and a leg that is normally yieldably supported by the chair frame, in slightly elevated position relative to the other legs, and is of such length that it may be pushed against the floor on which the chair frame legs and table legs rest.

2. A combination table and chair structure comprising a table top having two legs adjacent to two of its corners, a chair frame member pivotally connected on a vertical axis, to one of the legs, three legs for the chair frame member, one of which is vertically-movable relative to the otherlegs of the frame member and normally occupying a position out of engagement with a floor upon which the other legs will rest, and a seat carried by the chair frame member and, in part, supported by the vertically-movable leg, which is pressed against the floor when a person occupies the seat, the chair frame legs serving as a substitute for other legs for the table top.
