SGHOOL DESK.

No. 400,738. Patent ed, Apr. 21889..

NITED STATES PATENT- FFICE SCHOOL-DESK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 400,738, dated April 2, 1889.

Application filed December 14:, 1888. Serial No. 293,553. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANNA M. BREADIN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvements in School-Desks, of which the following is a specification.

One object of my invention is to so construct a school-desk as to prevent or lessen to a great extent the noise caused by the slamming of slates or books upon the desks, or the,

dropping of the slates into the slate-wells with which schooldesks are usually provided, a further object being to so construct the slate-well that itis always open to inspection, and can be readily kept clean. These objects I attain in the manner hereinafter set forth, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in whicha Figures 1 and 2 are perspective views in different positions of a school-desk constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 3 is a transverse section of part of the desk. Fig. 4 is alongitudinal section of the top of the desk; and Fig. 5 is a transverse section through th slate-well.

The top of the desk consists of an outer portion or narrow frame, a, inclosing and retaining a central panel, I), covered with sheetrubber d, the latter passing down over the sides and ends of the panel, and being confined between. the same and the outer frame, a, of the top of the desk, so that when the panel and its rubber cover are in place no edges of said cover are exposed, and the cover cannot, therefore, be torn or loosened by mischievous scholars, as would be likely if the edges of the covering were exposed. The rubber covering d projects above the surface of the outer confining-frame a, so as to prevent contact with said frame of obj eets deposit-ed upon the top of the desk.

At the front of the desk a slate well or receptacle, f, the bottom of which is likewise clothed with rubber, as at g, so that the noise which usually accompanies the throwing of books or slates down on an ordinary desk, or the chopping of the slates into the slate-wells, is effectually prevei'it-ed and the desk is rendered practically noiseless. The rubber covering of the desk, moreover, can be readily washed and kept clean, and it affords such a firm frictional l.0ltl for a slate that the latter is not liable to slip and slide about over the surface of the desk under the hands of a restless or nervous scholar.

The inner portion of the casing of the slatewellthat is to say, the portion accessible to the occupant-of the dcsk-is preferably closed, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, the front of the desk having an opening in front of the well, and this opening being crossed by slats 71., so that while the occupant of the desk cannot gain access to the lower portion of the slatewell, for the purpose of hiding or depositing objects therein, the interior of the slate-well is accessible at all times for cleansing purposes, and is open to the inspection of ateacher passing along an aisle between the rows of desks.

' The slate-well has near one end a partition, i, which serves to form at the end of the well a pocket, on, for the reception of a ruler, and the top of the desk has at one side an opening for an ink-well, n, and at the opposite side an opening for the reception of a spongecup, p.

Having thus described my invention, I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. The combination, in a school-desk top, of the outer border or frame, the panel within the same, and the rubber covering having a surface higher than the surface of the frame and having its edges confined between the panel and said frame, all substantially as specified.

2. A school-desk having a slate-well with closed internal casing, and an open front with cross-slats forming the front of the well, sul stant-iallv as specified.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

ANNA M. BREADIN.

WILLIAM D. CONNER, HARRY SMITH.
