COMBINED DRESSER AND TABLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent No. 480,799, dated August 16, 1892.
Application filed March 15, 1892. Serial No. 425,043. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, BERNADINE WILMs, of
the city of St. Louis and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Dresser and Table,
of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.
My invention relates to improvements in a.
[0 combined dresser and table; and it consists in the novel arrangement and combination of parts, as will be more fully hereinafter described, and designated in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective View of my complete invention, showing the table partially withdrawn and in position to be used as a writing-desk or table or anyother purpose desired for its use. Fig. 2 is a perspective View of the table entirely removed from the dresser in position to be used for any purpose. Fig. 3 is an end view of the table with its parts broken away, showing the manner in which the hinged leaf of the same is removably attached to the detachable legs.
Fig. 4. is also an end view showing more plainly the construction referred to in Fig. 3; and Fig. 5 is a transverse section taken through a portion of the table and the dresser, showing more particularly the means for lengthening the said table and also a portion of the table within the recess and a rear leg of the table.
The object of my invention is to construct a dresser in such a manner that it will receive 3 5 an extension-table that may be withdrawn from the same, or partially so, and which may be used as a writing-desk or table for any other purpose.
WVhen the table-top is entirely located with- 0 in the dresser,it does not in anyway obstruct the general appearance of said dresser, but greatly adds to the beauty of the same, the legs of the said table presenting the appearance of columns or pillars located at the corners of said dresser.
Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a dresser, which is especially constructed for the purpose and is provided with a mirror 2 and a side closet 3. The lower portion of the dresser will be provided with doors 4and drawers, if so desired, for receiving various articles of wearing-apparel, &c.
5 represents the top of the dresser, the rear edge of which is rigidly secured to the back of the lower portion 6 of said dresser in any suitable mechanical manner, leaving a sufficient space between the said top and the upper edge or top of the lower portion 6 for receiving the table-top hereinafter described. The space between the top 5 and the top of the lower portion 6 of the dresser is hidden from View from each end of the dresser by means of depending side pieces '7, the upper edges of which are secured to the lower surface of said top, as shown more clearly in Fig. 1. The space between the said top and the upper portion of the lower part (5 of the dresser is covered by a hinged leaf or door 8, the upper edge of which is provided with a rod 9, the ends of which are adapted to loosely fit in suitable openings formed in the said end pieces 7. Then the table-top is entirely inclosed within the dresser or in its normal position, the said door 8 will drop by its own weight and cover the space above referred to but when the said table is partially withdrawn the said door will rest upon the said table and assume the position as shown in Fig. 1.
Having given a description of the construction of the dresser proper, I shall now proceed to describe the construction of the table which I employ in connection with the said dresser and which is adapted to be received by the same.
The table is especially constructed for the purpose, the top of which is provided with a leaf adapted to be folded upon said top and while in said position adapted to be moved in the space formed for its reception in the said dresser.
Referring particularly to Fig. 2 of the drawings, 10 represents a section of the table,which is provided with a top 11, rigidly secured to said portion, and two legs 12. The side pieces of said section are each provided with a longitudinal groove 13, which grooves are open from the outside of the table and adapted to receive correspondingly shaped slides 14,- which are carried by the legs 15. The said slides 14 are attached to the upper ends of the legs 15 and at right angles thereto, and are each provided with a slot 16. Within the grooves 13 and secured to said stationary sides are bolts 17, the ends of which project a suitable distance beyond the surface of the slides 14 and pass through the said slots 16, formed in the same, which is best illustrated in Fig. 5 of the drawings.
18 represent nuts, which are screwed on the ends of the said bolts and are adapted to be turned against the outer surface of the slides 14 for holding the same in any adjustment, and especially when the said slides are withdrawn to their full extent, when the table is in the position as shown in Fig. 2.
To the rear edge of the top 11 is hinged a leaf 19 by means of hinges 20,'which allow said leaf to be folded upon the said top when the table is to be placed Within the dresser and not desired to be used. To the under surface of the leaf 19 are secured two staples 21', as best shown in Fig. 1, and to the rear upper ends of the legs 15 are secured hooks 22. which are adapted to be received by the said staples for uniting the said hinged leaf to said legs, forming a rigid connection between the same.
When it is desired to fold the table in such a position as to be received by the dresser, the hooks 22 are removed from the staples 21 and the leaf 19 folded upon the top 11, after which the nuts 19 are loosened and the slides 14 moved in such a direction as to be received entirely by the grooves 13, formed in the stationary part of the table. In this position the table can be easily placed within the dresser,
and when so placed the door 8 will be lowered and the same entirely hidden from view, with the exception of the legs, which, as stated before, add to the beauty and general appearance of the dresser.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim is 1. In a combined dresser and table, the combination, with the dresser provided with atop extending beyond the ends thereof and depending strips secured to said extended ends and forming grooves between the strips and the ends of the dresser, of atable comprising legs and side pieces connecting the pairs of the latter and adapted to be received by said grooves, substantially as and for the purpose, set forth.
2. In a combined dresser and table, the com bination, with the dresser provided with a space below its top and with grooves at its sides and a door for closing the front of said space and having pivots at its upper end, whereby said door closes by its own gravity, of a table adapted to be received by said space and grooves and having its top concealed by said door, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
BERNADINE WILMS.
