ROCKING CHAIR. APPLICATION FILED APR. 6. i917.
Patented Sept. 25, 1917.

Then the foot rest is extended, with its forward end rested upon the floor and its rear end supported upon the guide rods, it
provides a convenient object against which the occupant of the chair may place his feet in order to rock the chair. Furthermore, it also provides a suitable rest or brace for the occupant of the chair when he desires to operate the mechanism for converting the chair from one type to the other. I
The further operation of the chair has been clearly brought out in the foregoing description, and a further rehearsal of the operation is not here necessary, but it should be noted that without the use of double frames, or extra legs or. other duplication of parts, I have provided a very simple and complete convertible chair, in that it will not require an unduly heavy construction outside of the chair structure itself to carry out the essential features of the invention.

A convertible rocking chair comprising in combination, with a chair body, a pair of flexible steel rockers mounted upon the lower ends of the legs of the body, and means op erative by the occupant of the chair for flexing the rockers into their curved positions or into straight position.
