Leners' Patent N0..100,11`6, auml February 2'2, 1870.

IMPRovEn SEAT r'oR CARS, sw.

The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.

I, JAMES CAssEDAY, of Philadelphia, county of Philadelphia, Stat-e of Pennsylf'ania, have invented an Improved Seat for Cars, 86e., of which the follow ing is a specification.

l Nature and Object of the Invention.

My invention consists of a car-seat, the back or base of which is composed of a number of curved or elliptical springs secured to a frame and arranged side by side, but at a short distance apart from each other, in combination with a covering ot plush or other suitable fabric, the'wlhole forming a'coniibrtahle spring seat, with the advantage over the .usual stuffed seats that it affords no lodgnient for dust which will pass between the springs.

Description of the Accompanying Draw/ings.

Figure 1 is a perspective view otl a car-scat, illustrating my invention applied to the same.

Figure 2, a transverse section of tig. l.

Figure 3, an inverted plan View of the base of the seat; and

Figure 4, an enlarged sectional view, showing the mode of securing the springs.

'General Description.

secured by a pin or screw, the portion :t ofthe spring,

when pressure is applied to the latter, hearing upon the upper edge of the strip, and thus relieving the pin or screw from any undue"l strain.

The springs are arranged in such close proximity to each other that while dust and dirt can pass freely between them to the floor, they will collectively'form,

when covered with plush or other suitable fabric, one

continuous spring seat capable of Ayielding freely and affording every comfort to the occupant.

The springs may also, if vdesired, be connected together on the under side by a thin elastic strip, F, ot

steel, as shown in iig. 3, so as to insure greater uniformity'in their action.

The back ot' the seatconsists of alight frame, G, connected to the arms by links a, so as to be reversible in the 'usual manner, and across this traine extends a series of springs arranged in close proximity to each other, and covered with plush or other fabrican the same manner as the springs of the base ot the seat; 'but in the present instance the springs of the back are vsimply rounded and have their bent ends secured to tion to car-seats, but may be used with advantage in connection with the seats of other vehicles, or may he' applied to ordinary sofas or-chairs.


The hack or base of a seat composed of a number of curved or elliptical springs, secured to a frame and arranged side by side, but so far apart as to permit dust to pass between them, in combination with a ,covering of plush or other suitable fabric restingdirectly ou the springs, all substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I have signed in y name to this specitication in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
