'July" 8, "1958 E. c. SCANLON HOLLOW TAPERED FURNITURE LEG Filed Jan. 31, 1957 'INVENTOR. EDWARD C. S CANLON 349M IMJIW ATTORNEY United HOLLGW TAPERED FURNITURE LEG Edward C. Seanlon, West Barrington, R. I.

Application January 31, 1257, Serial No. 637,444

3 Claims. (Cl. 311-109) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in furniture legs and particularly to hollow tapered furniture legs comprising a hollow transparent tapered outer sleeve, a hollow tapered inner core and a liner held in said hollow leg by means of said inner core.

One of the objects of the present invention is to provide a new and improved furniture leg consisting of a hollow tapered transparent outer sleeve, a liner and a hollow tapered inner core.

Another object of the present invention is, to provide a hollow tapered transparent plastic furniture leg comprising a hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve, a tapered inner core having means to be attached to a plat form such as a table top or cabinet and provided with a decorative liner between the core and the transparent plastic leg.

Still another object of the present invention is to provide a furniture leg which is nick proof, scratch proof, and chip proof and which is extremely inexpensive, sturdy and decorative. The decorative feature being easily and inexpensively varied both by the manufacturer and ultimate user.

Other objects of the present invention will be pointed out in part and become apparent in part in the following specification and claims.

Referring to the drawings in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the new and improved hollow tapered transparent plastic furniture leg provided with a liner and inner core.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the inner core showing the liner partially wrapped around said core.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the new and improved furniture leg showing the toe piece and the means to attach the furniture leg to a table.

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view taken along line 4-4 of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is an exploded vertical sectional view similar to Figure 4.

In the past furniture legs were fabricated from wood, :3;

aluminum, steel or solid colored plastic material. Expensive machinery was necessary to fabricate a leg out of solid stock. The solid leg underwent an expensive process of finishing. The finish was vulnerable to scratches, scarring, nicks and chips. for all time carried one color and design of finish.

The present invention overcomes the disadvantages inherent in prior furniture legs through a simple, inexpensive molding of clear or transparent plastic which has a diamond hard finish. A plastic core is also molded. A lining of paper which may carry any color or any design is wrapped around the core and held in position in the hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve. The core is readily detachable from the hollow outer sleeve In addition the leg ice so that a lining of .a different color or .design is easily made to replace a former liner.

In furtherance of this invention reference is made to all the figures of the drawing wherein a hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve 11 of any desired length and taper is illustrated. A hollow inner core 12 having a companion taper to the taper of sleeve 11 is provided of molded plastic material which may be either opaque or transparent. A sheet of material such as cloth, plastic sheet or paper 13 of any desired color or design is wrapped around inner core 12 in a manner to have its edges meet in at a common line 14 without overlapping.

Adhesives may be used to hold paper 13 to core 12. Hollow tapered inner core 12 provided with paper 13 on its outside diameter is placed within hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve 11. The companion tapers of sleeve 11 and core 12 will secure these parts in detachable but secured relationship with the opposite ends of each mating in a horizontal plane. Thus the design on paper 13 will be visible through the hollow transparent plastic tapered sleeve 11 and still be protected by the hardness of the plastic material which is impervious to nicks, scratches, chipping etc. Adhesives may be used to hold paper 13 to outer sleeve 11. In which case inner core 12 may be dispensed with.

A toe plug generally indicated at 15 may be provided having a foot portion 16 terminating in a taper 17 which is mated with the taper of hollow inner core 12 to be removably secured therein. Similarly a plug, generally indicated at 18, consisting of a tapered body 20 provided with a threaded projection 21 is removably secured in hollow inner core 12. The taper of body 20 and core 12 mate. Threaded projection 21 may be attached to any platform such as a table music or television cabinet.

If inner core 12 is dispensed with toe plug 15 and plug 18 will attach to the inner surface of outer sleeve 11. It is also possible to mold a footing to the lower end of outer sleeve 11. Hollow transparent plastic outer sleeve 11 may constitute a parallel sided tube rather than a tapered tube or outer sleeve. Means other than a threaded projection 21 may be employed to secure outer sleeve 11 to the underside of a platform.

Thus an inexpensive furniture leg is provided which allows for a multiple number of different designs and colors in the same molded leg.

Having shown and described a preferred embodiment of the present invention, by way of example, it should be realized that structural changes could be made and other examples given without departing from either the spirit or scope of this invention.

What I claim is:

1. A hollow tapered furniture leg comprising a hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve, a hollow tapered inner core, a sheet of decorative material constituting a liner, wrapped around said hollow tapered core and placed within said hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve to be removably secured therein.

2. A hollow tapered furniture leg comprising a hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve, a hollow tapered inner core, a sheet of decorative material, constituting a liner, wrapped around said hollow tapered core and placed within said hollow transparent plastic tapered outer sleeve with the opposite ends of said outer sleeve and inner core in horizontal alignment, a toe plug having a foot portion terminating in a taper mated with the taper of said hollow tapered inner core to be secured therein and a plug having a tapered body provided with a projection, said tapered body mating with the taper of said hollow tapered inner core to be secured therein with References Cited in the file of this patent UNITED STATES PATENTS Cochrane Apr. 18, 1933 Normandi et al May 16, 1939 Hogan Mar. 13, 1956 Copenhaver May 22, 1956
