FREDERIK ll. IIIINGUS, OF NEI' YORK, N. Y.
CABINET-BEDSTEAD.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 415,945, dated November 26, 1889.
` Application ned Jimmy 12,1999. seria No. 295,919. (No model.)
To all whom t may concerm Be it known that I, FREDERIK II. IIUNsUs, of the city, county, and State ot New York, a citizen of Germany, have invented certain new .and useful Improvements in Cabinet- Bedsteads, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improved cabinet-bedstead of simple and ccnvenientlyop @rated construction; and the invention consists of a cabinet-bedstead in which a'bedsection is pivoted near its head part to the lower part of an upright casing and balanced by a spring-actuated arm that is pivoted to the base-board of the casing, the sp1ingacti1 ating arm facilitating the lifting of the bedsection into the casing.
The front of the bedstead is covered by curtains suspended from pivoted curtain-rods when not in use.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l represents a perspective view of my improved cabinet-bedstead; and Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, shown with the bed-section in lowered position.
Similar letters of reference indicate corre sponding parts.
My improved cabinet-bedstead can be used either as an independent piece of furniture or in combination with a bureau or other piece of furniture, in which case the bedstead is arranged back to back with said furniture, both being placed on casters, so that by turning either one to the wall the other piece oi furniture can be used. The cabinetbedstead consists of an exterior upright casing A and a bedsection B, which is pivoted near the head end to the casing A, near the bottom of the same. It is provided at the foot end with hinged legs Z) l), which unfold and rest at right angles to the bed-section B when the same is in lowered position, as shown in Fig. 2. The bed-section B is acted upon by an arm C, which is splined to a pivot-rod C', that is supported in bearings on the lugs c7, d, attached to the front base-board of the casing A, said arm C being engaged by the hooleshaped end ot' a spiral spring D, that exerts a lifting action on the bed-section B. The spiral spring D is supported on the pivotarm C and provided at its4 opposite endwith a heel d',
that is bentso as to engage the next adjoining lug d, so as to abut against the front baseboard and prevent the spring D from turning on the pivot-rod C when the same is set to tension by the arm C on lowering the bedsection B. The arm C is guided in a keeper or eye e, so as to slide in the same, according to the motion of the bed-section B. The keeper e is attached to a transverse re-enforcing piece B of the bedsection B. When lowering the bed-section B, the spring D is set to tension by the arm C, said tension assisting in raising the bed-section B when replacing it in position in the casing A.
The spring-actuated arm C serves to balance to some extent the bed-section B and facilitate the lifting of the same, so as to dis pense with the use of weights, cords, and pulleys, whereby the construction of the cabinetbedstead is simplified and the cost of the same considerably reduced.
To the upper part of the casing A are ap plied, at the corners of the same, curtain-rods f, which are pivoted to suitable sockets f of the side walls of the casing A, said sockets folding in a recess of the top piece of the casA ing, valcove the foot end of the bedsection B, so that a curtain F, suspended from said rods, covers up the bedsection B. IVhen the seca tion B is lowered, the curtains can be gathered together after the curtainmods are swung out in line with the side walls of the casing, as shown in Fig. 2, whereby an ornamental appearance is imparted to the bedstead.
The curtains are used to cover up the bedsection and its balancing mechanism when the bedstead is not in use as a bed, while when the bedstead is used in combination with another piece of furniture it can be turned to the wall without dropping the curtains over the folding section.-
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pata entl. The combination, with an upright casing, of a bed-section pivoted to the base part of the casing and provided with hinged legs at the foot end, a pivot-rod supported in lugs of the base-board, an arm that is splined to said pivot-rod, said arm being guided in a fixed sleeve or keeper at the under side of the IOL) bed-section, and a spring having' a hookshaped extension for engaging said arm, substantially as set forth.
2. The eo1nbination,with an upright easing having a front base-board, of a bed-seotion pivoted to the casing above the baseboard and provided with hinged legs at the foot end, a transverse piece attached to the under side of the bed-seetion and provided with a guide-sleeve or keeper, a balancingarm gnidedin said keeper and splined to a pivot-rod supported in bearings of the front base-board, and a spiral spring having a hookshaped end engaging the balancing-arm, said spiral spring being applied to the pivot-rod and provided with a stop-heel at the opposite end, substantially as set forth.
In testimony that I olaiin the foregoing as 'nly invention Ihave signed my name in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
