'BABY-CARRIAG E.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 609,520, dated August 23, 1898.

I Application filed December 9, 1897 Serial No. 661,219. (No'modelo T0 on whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, HENRI PARTHON DE VON, a subject of the King ofBelgium, and a resident of the city of Brussels, Belgium, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Baby-Carriages, of-which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in baby-carriages; and it consists in constructing and arranging the parts in such manner that it may be collapsed or folded together into relatively small space, thus adapting it to more easy and less expensive transportation and more convenient use in apartmenthouses and similar places where space is restricted, and when desired for use the structure may be extended into proper condition to serve its purpose quickly and without requiring mechanical work.

Figure 1 illustrates an elevation of the carriage when in its extended condition ready for use. Fig. 2 illustrates a plan view of the same. Fig. 3 illustrates an elevation of the carriage when collapsed or folded into its smallest compass.

A A A A represent the wheels.

B B B B illustrate a series of flat bars, there being the same arrangement on both sides of the carriage.

G O are two crossshafts, to the ends of which, respectively, the bars 13 B and B B are pivoted, as shown.

D D are two stay-bars, so called, one at each side of the apparatus, each provided with a hook E on its free end which is adapted to hook over a laterally-projecting portion H is a handle-suitably supported ets 1, whereby thecarriagemay be conven iently propelled." The lower ends of the le vers B and B are pivoted together on each side of the apparatus by a pivotidt The" wheels A are supported upon Taxles K K, supported in the lower ends of the bars B G 011.9%... 1 116 carnag m brack and B respectively, on each side of the car riage.

The body of the carriage is composed of two end sections L and L, which are supported upon the cross-bars G and G and upon the cross-shaft O and '0. The central portion of the carriage is composed of two boards or plates M and M, which are hinged together at their meeting edges by two hinges N N and at their other edges by hinges O O and O O, which are fastened to the crossbars 0 and 0, respectively. The wheels upon the shaft K-inlother words, the front wheelsare, as seen plainly in Fig. 2, set closer together than those upon the rear shaft K, so that when the carriage is folded together the front wheels occupya position between the rear ones, so that the apparatus may be made additionally compact.

The operation is obvious. When desiring to collapse the carriage, the bars D D are unhooked from the pivots or pins F F on each side of the apparatus and the parts are allowed to drop by their own gravity, whereupon the bottom boards M M of the carriage being slightly pressed upward the carriage may be collapsed endwise, during which the several bars on each side of the apparatus and the bottom boards M M will all turn upon their respective pivots or hinges, as the case may be, somewhat after the. manner of lazy-tongs, whereby the carriage assumes a position and arrangement of the parts as shown in Fig. 3, in which it occupies a small portion only of the space consumed when projected. When desired for use, however,

it is extended, as shown in Fig. 1, and the stay-bars D D being properly engaged with the pivots or projecting pins F they hold the structure as a whole in projected position, and these bars likewise afford means to prevent the occupa rrt one-falling out sidewise. efnitably covered with g,"xsuch as; canvas or upbolstering{clothfof any kind; to given K decorative appearance andxitoprevent articles frorn falling fromit.

.It Willibeobvioustd'thosewho are familiar with this art that modificationsmay be made in the special details of construction without departing from the essentials of the'inven- IOO tion. I thereforedo not limit myself to such details.

. I claim-- 1. The combination in a baby-carriage of a frame on each side of the body composed of four pivotally-connected bars, a body composed of three sections, two of them rigidly attached to said bars, and a central section composed of boards pivotally connected to the side frames and hinged to each other wherebythey are adapted to fold upon themselves, and wheels likewise supported upon said bars, for the purposes set forth.

2. The combination in a baby-carriage of a frame on each side of the body, each frame composed of four pivoted bars arranged in pairs, the bars of each pair crossing each other between their ends, a pivot-pin at the place of their intersection; a body supported on said bars having a hinged bottom; and wheels supported on the lower ends of said bars, as shown, one pair of said wheels having less separation than the other pair, for the purposes set forth.

3. The combination in a baby-carriage of a frame on each side of the body composed of four bars pivoted together at their meeting ends and at their intermediate points of intersection, as shown, stay-bars at each side of the carriage pivoted at one end to the upper part of one of the bars of the side frame, and at the other end adapted to engage with one of the other bars, whereby they are locked in their extended position; a body supported on said bars, and wheels likewise supported on said bars, for the purposes set forth.

4. The combination in a baby-carriage of a frame on each side of the body composed of four bars arranged in pairs, those of each pair crossing each other between their ends, said bars being pivoted together at their meeting ends, and also at the points of their intersection; a pivoted stay-bar adapted to engage with the other bars and hold them rigidly in their extended position; a body having two rigid end sections rigidly attached to the side frames, and a central section composed of two parts hinged at their outer edges to the end sections and hinged together on their central line; and wheels supported on the lower ends of the outside bars of each pair, one pair of said wheels having less separation than the other pair, for the purposes set forth.

Signed at the city of Brussels, Belgium, this 5th day of November, 1897.

HENRI PARTHON DE voN.
