FOLDING, CHAIR FOR STEAMEES, 6w.

Patented June 4, 1889.

CHARLES F. BATT, OF BROOKLYN, NEIV YORK FOLDING CHAIR FOR STEAMERS, 800.:

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 404,589, dated June 4, 1889 Application filed February 13, 1889. Serial No. 299,702. (No model) .To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that 1, CHARLES F. BATT, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, Kings county, New York, have invented an Improved Folding Chair for Steamers, &c., of which the followingis a specification.

The object of my invention is to construct a simple but strong folding chair, more especially adapted for use 011 steamers, houseporches,or lawns. In one of the most common forms of steamer-chairs the side arms are each made in two pieces to fold up with a hinge at a point, where it is apt to be grasped by the hand of the user to the frequent injury of the fingers and clothing. It is one of the main objects of my invention to so construct the chair as to avoid this objectionable feature, and to provide a strong support for the seat.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved chair. Fig. 2 is a side view of the chair partially folded. Fig. 3 is a vertical section of the chair folded up. Fig. 4 is an enlarged perspective view of a detail, and Fig. 5 is a view of another detail on a somewhat larger scale.

I prefer to use slat-work in the frames of the seat A and the back 13 of the chair, although cane, carpet, or other material maybe used. I make the front legs b I) continuations of the side bars of the back of the chair,while the rear legs a a are continuations of the side bars of the seat A. These two parts (the seat with its legs and the back with its legs) are pivoted to each other by means of a pivotrod D, bolted to one part and passing through suitable bearings secured to the other. In the present case I have shown the rod as bolted to the seat and rear legs and as passing through bearings cl, secured to the front side of the chair-back. These bearings are formed with projections cl, Fig. 4,which form stops for the seat, and a cross-bar a on the under side of the seat finds a rest and support upon these stops cl when the chair is in the open position, Fig. 1. There is also formed upon or attached to the outer edge of each side bar of the back 13 a stop I), againstwhich the upper side of the corresponding rear leg finds a bearing when the chair is in use, as shown in Fig. 1.

The side arms E of the chair are each made rigid throughout their lengththat is, without the objectionable hinge in them heretofore spoken of. I pivot the side arms to the seat near its front edge, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, and connect their other ends by a cross-bar ebehind the back of the chair. The rear ends of the pivoted side arms rest upon supports e, which are secured to or formed upon the side bars of the back B. For convenience I prefer to make each of these supports in one piece with the stops 1) on the corresponding side bar of the chair-back. The arms thus being supported by the direct bearing of the cross-piece upon the side bars of the back, the seat is firmly braced by very simple means not liable to get out of order, while the supports for the side arms prevent any liability to collapseby pressure upon the arms, as when the user rises from the chair.

To fold the chair up, the seat is turned up toward the back of the chair, and at the same time the side arms E slide back over the supports downward, as shown in Fig. 2, until such side arms hang down behind the back, and the chair will then be found to be folded into a small compass, with correspondingly-curved parts lying up against each other, in the manner illustrated in Fig. 3.

As a convenient means of pivoting the side arms to the seat I pass through a slot in each side bar of the seat from the under side a headed bolt f, Fig. 5, which is preferably a T- plate entering a central slot in the rounded end of the arm E. A pin f, passed through the arm and bolt, completes the pivotal connection.

I claim as my invention 1. The combination of the seat and back of a folding chair pivoted together, with side arms connected to the seat and resting upon supports on the chair-back, and having a brace resting against the rear of the side bars of the latter to support the seat, substantially as described.

2. The combination of the seat and back of a folding chair pivoted together, with side arms pivoted to the seat and resting upon supports on the chair-back, and provided with stops near their ends which engage with the rear edges of the side bars of the back to support the seat the said side arms hanging down behind the back when the chair has been folded up with the seat against the back, all substantially as described.

The combination of the seat and back of a folding chair pivoted together, with side arms pivoted to the chair-seat near the front of the latter, the side arms having supports on the chair-back, and being connected together behind the latter by a cross-brace bearing on said back to support the seat, substantially as described.

4. The combination of the seat and back of a folding chair pivoted together, with front legs forming a continuation of the chair-back, and back legs forming a continuation of the chair-seat, and side arms pivoted to the chair-
