THOMAS E. GROOME M v M Filed Jan. 18, 1955 ATTORNEYS United States Patent ARTICLE OF FURNITURE Thomas E. Groome, Miami, Fla. Application January 18, 1955, Serial No. 482,456

1 Claim. (Cl. 155-194) This invention relates to chairs, and more specifically, the invention is directed to improvements in a high chair for children.

One of the primary objects of this invention is to provide a high chair for children with means for adjusting the elevation of the seat and back in correspondence with the growth of the child,

A further object of this invention is to provide a baby chair which will not be easily tipped over.

Other and further objects and advantages of the present invention will become more evident from a consideration of the following specification when read in the light of the annexed drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a high chair for children constructed in accordance with the teachings of the present invention.

Figure 2 is a front elevation taken on the plane of line 2-2 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 3 is a side elevation of the high chair shown in Figure 1.

Figure 4 is an enlarged detail view taken on the horizontal plane of line 4-4 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Referring now more specifically to the drawing, the high chair comprises a pair of spaced inverted substantially U-shaped vertical frames 10, 11 formed of tubular metal. The frames include a pair of horizontal members 12 and downwardly extending diverging legs 13, 13'. The frames 10, 11 are maintained in spaced relation by means of the spacer bars 14 and 15. While any conventional means may be employed to secure the bar 14 to the legs 13, it is preferable to secure the bar thereto at 16 as by rivets 17.

The horizontal bar 15 is connected at its opposite ends to the legs 13 by adjustable means as, for example, the bolts 18. The bolts 18 are adapted for selective engagement with apertures 19 which extend transversely through the legs 13.

A pair of horizontally extending bars 20 having upturned portions 21 extend across the vertical frames 10, 11 adjacent the horizontal members 12. A back rest 22 is secured to the upturned portions 21 by bolts or rivets 23. The forward ends of the horizontal bars 20 are flattened and bent laterally outwardly as at 27 and are provided with an arcuate configuration to provide a smooth engagement thereof with the front legs 13' of the chair. The flattened ends of the horizontal members 20 are provided with apertures adapted for registry with openings 25 which extend through the forward legs 13 adjacent the horizontal members 12.

Selective adjustment of the members 20 is obtained by the use of bolts 24 which are adapted to extend through the openings 25 and the opening formed in the arcuately shaped portion 27. In a similar manner the other ends of the bars 2%) are secured to the leg 13 by means of bolts 24' which are adapted for selective engagement Within openings 25, the openings 25 and 25' being horizontally aligned.

If desired, an elongated substantially semi-circular nonskid foot rest 31 may be bolted at 32 to the spacer bar 15, and a seat board 29, substantially rectangular in configuration, is bolted to the horizontal bars 20 by bolts 30.

Thus it is seen that the seat board 29 and the chair back 22 may be raised or lowered, as desired, by removing the bolts 24, 24' and raising or lowering the seat board 29 and the back 22 and subsequently reengaging the bolts 24, 24' within selected apertures 25, 25'.

Having described and illustrated one embodiment of this invention in detail, it will be understood that the same is offered merely by way of example, and that the invention is to be limited only by the scope of the appended claim.

What is claimed is:

A high chair comprising a pair of spaced parallel inverted U-shaped frames, each of said frames including a pair of parallel upright members integrally connected at their upper ends by a horizontal member, outwardly diverging front and rear legs integrally formed on the lower ends of each of said frames, a horizontal spacer bar secured at its opposite ends to the upper ends of said rear legs, a second spacer bar extending between the upper ends of said front legs, means securing said second spacer bar to said front legs for vertical adjustment thereon, a footrest mounted on said second spacer bar, a horizontal bar extending between the upright members of each of said frames parallel to said horizontal member, an arcuate offset end portion integrally formed on the forward end of each of said horizontal bars engaging the rear face of the forward upright member, an upright portion integrally formed on the rear end of each of said horizontal bars, a back rest having its opposite edges secured to said upright portions, means securing said arcuateoffset end portions to the forward upright member for vertical adjustment thereon, means securing the rear end portions of said horizontal bars to the rear upright members for vertical adjustment thereon, and a seat having its opposite edges secured to said horizontal bars.
