Specification of Letters Patent.

i Patented Apr. 27, 1920.

Application led .Tune 2, 1917. Serial No. 172,482.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, Guss EWING, a citizen of the United States, residing at Egypt, in the county of Chickasaw and State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Barber-Chairs; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and eXact description of the. invention, such as will enable others skilled 1n the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. A

This invention relates to improvements 1n a barber chair.

The object of this invention is to equipL a barber chair with a novel supporting stand and to provide the chair with standards, which carry grooved rollers adapted to engage a track located upon the standso that the chair may be rotated to position the same in any position desired.

A still further obj ectof this invention 1s to provide a supporting stand on the upper side of which is arranged a circular track, which track is adapted to rotatably support the barber chair on the stand, the chair being pro.- vided with a novel standard, which is rotatably mounted centrally of the stand and provided with grooved rollers receiving the track to prevent lateral shifting movement of the chair with relation to the standard and at the same time permit the chair to be rotated to be turned at any desired angle.

A still further object of this invention is to provide the foot rest portion of the chair on the supporting structure which carries the rollers to permit the chair to be rotated when the back is in substantially vertical position.

A still further ob] ect of this invention is to provide a barber chair of this character, which will be simple, practical and comparatively inexpensive in construction, and one that can be manufactured and sold at a low cost.

WVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a view in side elevation illustrating the barber chair as made in accordance with this invention,

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the supporting stand,

Fig. 3 is a detail view partly in section illustrating one of the supporting legs carrying the grooved roller,

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a foot supporting roller member.

Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts inl all the figures of the drawings.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the barber chair in lits entirety and it comprises a back 2, a seat 3, arms 4, the leg portion 5, and the foot portion 28 which has a movable foot rest 6 pivoted in its eXtreme end.

The leg portion 5 is pivotally secured to the seat 3 and arms 4 as at 6 and the arms are pivotally secured to the back 2 as at 7 and the back 2 is pivotally secured to the seat -3 as at 8 to permit the chair to be moved into either a substantially horizontal or vertical position as is the ordinary construction of barber chair. A head rest 9 is adjustably secured to the rear side of the back 2 as at 10.

My improved construction of barber chair comprises a stand designated in its entirety by the numeral 12. The stand comprises the base 13, which is substantially circular and has secured to its under side and depending therefrom, the spaced supporting legs 14, which legs have secured on their inner surfaces and at the medial portion thereof, a circular reinforcing member 15, which is provided on its upper face with a bearing `member 16, centrally thereof, which has a central bore 17. The base 13 is provided with a central opening 18 and is n direct alinement with the opening 17 in the bearing member 16, the purpose of which will be hereinafter more fully described.

An annular track 19 is secured to the upper side of the base 13 adjacent the periphery thereof, and is adapted to rotatably support the chair 1 on the base 13 of the sup-V porting stand.

A standard 2O is secured by one end to the under side of the seat 3 centrally thereof, and this standard is rotatably mounted in the opening 18 of the base 13 and has its lower end rotatably arranged in the opening 17'of the bearing member 16 to rotatably support the chair 1 on the standard or supporting structure 12.

A plurality of supporting legs 21 are ses cured to and depend from the under side of the seat 3 of the chair and are arranged in spaced relation to one another and have their lower ends terminating in close proximity to and directly over the track 19 on the supporting structure.

A pair of metal plates 22 are secured as at 23 by one end to the opposite sides of the lower ends of the supporting legs 21 and project downwardly beyond the same and have journaled therein, the grooved rollers 24:, which are adapted to rotatably receive the track 19 to permit the chair to be freely rotated on the supporting structure 12.

The legs 21, which are secured to the junder side of the seat 3 of the chair are reinforced by a spider 25, which is secured to the medial portion of the legs on the inner side thereof and is provided centrally with an apertured boss 26, through which is adapted to extend the standard 2O to reinforce and hold the standard against rattling during the rotation of the chair on the supporting structure 12.

A rectangular supporting member 27 is secured to the under side of the foot portion 28 of the chair l as at 29y and has secured to its under side and depending therefrom a leg 30, which carries a roller 3l, which is adapted to rotatably engage the floor when the back 2 is in a vertical position, thus assistingl in the rotation of the chair when being turned in various positions.

A mug supporting structure or bracket 32 is secured to one arm of the chair and seat as at 33, and this is adapted to support the usual type of mug designated A in the drawings.

What is claimed is:

A chair of the class described comprising a base having a top provided with an opening, a circular track carried by the top, supporting legs for the top, a brace for the legs having a bearing positioned beneath and in alinement with the opening of the top, a seat, supporting legs for the seat having rollers engaging the track, a brace for the last mentioned legs having a sleeve positioned above the opening in the top, of the base, and a standard extending from the seat through the sleeve and opening in the top of the base and fitting into the bearing of the brace for the legs of the base.

In testimony whereof I allix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

Guss Ewnve.
