A ALFRED G. SEYDEWITZ, OF MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN.
KNOCKDOWN FURNITURE.
To all whom 'it may concern- Beit known that 1, ALFRED G. SnYDEwITz, a citizen of the United States, and resident of the city of Muskegon, county of Muskegon, State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Knoclrdown Furniture, of whichthe following is a specification, and which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.
The invention relates to furniture adapted to be folded to compact form for storage or transportation and has for its object to provide an improved article of furniture which may be readily folded or extended, which shall occupy a minimum of space when folded and which shall be both light in weight and of great strength when extended.
The invention contemplates improved means for connecting the parts of furniture for folding which may be readily embodied in the construction of furniture of various forms and which will admit of such furniture being made to conform to any desired artistic pattern or style.
In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a side elevation of a table embodying the features of the invention, the parts being shown in the extended position of service. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same, partly in horizontall section, the plane of the section being indicated by line 2 2 on Fig. 1 5 Fig. 3 shows in perspective the supporting legs of the table illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 in folded position; and Figs. 4 and 5 show in perspective the shelves of the table illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 separated from other parts.
A small table or stand of the form commonly termed a taboret is illustrated in the drawings for the purpose of disclosing the invention. As shown, this taboret coinprises a plurality of supporting legs as 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 hinged together as at 16, 17 to fold about the vertical axis of the table. Preferably two sets of hinges, 16, 17 are provided, and as shown these are applied respectively to the inner ends of horizontal arms 18, 19, so formed upon each of the standards or legs, 10, 11, 1.2, 13, 14, 15 that the arms are radially disposed about the vertical axis of the table when the parts are in the extended position of service illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2. The hinges 16, 17 may be conveniently formed of flexible fabric firmly secured to the inner ends of the arms 18, 19,
Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 418,854.
the shelf 22 in place upon its seat on the arms 18 when the standards are extended. A recess 24, shown as being formed in each of' the standards 10,11, 12,13,14,15 at the base of the arm 1S for receiving the periphery of the shelf most conveniently serves this purpose.
As shown the table shelf 22 is circular in form and in setting up the table for use the marginal edge of this shelf will be applied to each of the recesses 24 when the standards or le s of the table are in the folded or partialy folded position. These standards will then be extended by the flexing of the hinges 16, 17 to encircle the shelf as indicated in Figs. 1 and 2 and the shelf is thus firmly secured in plaoe'by an inter-engagement between its periphery as at 25, 26, 27 Fig. 2 and the recesses 24 of the standards.
It is desirable that detachable means be provided for maintaining the standards 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 in the extended position illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2. As shown the platen or shelf 23 carried by the arms 19 of the standards is employed for this purpose. To this en d this shelf is preferably provided with a plurality of peripheral notches 28, one for receiving an appurtenance of' each of the standards, as the lug 29 which rises from each of the arms 19 adjacent its outer end.
In use the platen or shelf 23 will be applied to its seat upon the instanding arms 19 of the supporting standards after these standards have been rotated upon the hinges 16, 17 about the platen or shelf 22 to the extended position illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2. The engagement between the lugs 29 and the notches 2S thus effected serves to securely lock the standards in the extended position. When it is desired to fold the table for storage or transportation the platen 23 will be first removed by lifting it from its seat. The standards 10, 11,l2,13, 14, 15 may then be turned upon the hinges 16, 17, to the folded of such articles may be conveniently carried position illustrated in Fig. 3, thus releasing the upper platen or shelf 22.
When the parts of the table are in the eX- tended position of use illustrated in Figs. l and 2, the hinges 16, 17 are quite concealed from view and the external appearance of the device gives no indication Whatever of its collapsible character. When, however, the parts are in the folded position the device occupies but little space and is of that compact form wherein there are no projecting parts likely to be broken by rough handling. Articles of furniture such as that described and embodying the features of the invention are r exceedingly convenient for use Where large i numbers of a particular form of article are to be temporarily employed. great number l to the place of use in the folded form and may then be readily set up for use, the upper g platen 22 being applied to the recesses 24 of the standards as these are spread out to the extended position and the standards being i, then locked in place by a fitting oi' the lower laten upon the arms 1Q whereby one of the ugs 29 is caused to enter each of the notches 28. Then such a temporary use of these devices has been completed they may be again folded and returned in compact form for storage.
I claim as my invention l. In a collapsible article of furnitui'e, in combination a set of standards hinged to gether to fold about the vertical axis of the article, each of the standards being horizontally notched and the mouth of each of the 2 2. In a collapsible article of furniture, in
combination, a set of standards hinged to gether to fold about the vertical axis of the article, each of the standards being horizon tally notched, and a removable shelf carried by the standards the margins of the shelf being interloclred with the notches of the standards to prevent vertical displacement of the shelf when the set of standards is unfolded.
ln a collapsible article of furniture, in combination, a plurality of standards, each having a pair of horizontal shelf supporting arms arranged at different levels and each of the standards being horizontally notched at the base of one of the arms, the mouth of the notch being in the direction of the length of the arin, an upstanding lug formed on the other arm of cach of the standards, hinges uniting the arms of the tvro sets at their ends, n
a shelf carried by the set of arms adjacent the notches formed in the standards having a plurality of marginal 1nearin g points each engageable with the notch of one of the standards, and a shelf carried by the other set of arms, the last-named shelf being notched to receive the upstanding lugs of the second set of shelf supporting arms.
