K. w. BULcK WARDROBE FOR HALLS Filed Feb. 10, 1927 lQQw I J Patented Feb. 4, 1930 PATENT OFFICE KARL WILHELM BT ILCK, OF NEUMUNSTER, GERMANY WARDROBE FOR HALLS Application filedlebruary 10, 1927, Serial No. 167,252, and in Germany February 13, 1926.

This invention relates to a wardrobe for the hall whichmaybe extended for hanging up a greater number of garments than normally. In the top part of the wardrobe an ex 6 tensible or oscillatable bar is arranged at each side, on which cloth. pegs are fixed, and behind the back wall of the wardrobe two auxiliary back walls are arranged adapted to be pulled out together with the extensible or oscillatable bars in order to enlarge the back wall of the wardrobe. The wardrobe has further on the front a cupboard for boots so u that the looking glass in this front portion of the wardrobe cannot be covered with garments hanging on the wardrobe.

An embodiment of the invention is shown, by way of example, in the accompanying drawings in which: I

Fig. 1 shows in perspectiveview a wardrobe for the hall with pulled out extension bars, and auxiliary back wall pulled out the I latter being indicated by dash-dot lines.

' Fig. 2 is a cross section on line 22 of Fig. 1. v

Fig. 3 is a cross section on line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

On the back of the upper portion of a wardrobe for the hall two guide bars a and b are i fixed which have at the outer end of their inner surfaces each one dove-tailed groove. In

these dove-tailed grooves two bars a and d Q are shiftably mounted, so that the one bar a may be pulled out to the leftand the other 7 bar (Z to the right. Each bar 0 and (Z carries a number of cloth-hooks e which, when the bars are pushed in are accommodated between the back wall of the wardrobe and the guide bars 0 andd, as shown in Fig. 2. The hooks I I e may behingedly fixed and spring controlled d so that as soon as thecorresponding bar is I I pulled out they arepressed by the action of the springs into the position of use, so that "theinterval between the back wall 7 of the fwardrobe and the extensible bars may be as small as possible. Each bar 0 and (Z carries g at the outer end apiece g or it standing at I right angles to the bar and designed to cover.

be shiftably arranged so that they can be pulled out together with the corresponding extensible bar in order to prevent the garments hung up on the extended bars from coming into contact with the wall, said extensible walls being rigid with the extensible bars. Fig. 1 shows at the left side' an extensible wall 1' and at the right side an extensible wall 2" in the pulled out position. The shiftable walls i and 2" may be suspended on the extensible bars 0 and d as shown in Fig. 2.

Each extensible bar 0 and d has at its end a vertical arm is or m respectively in which two rods n and 0 arefixed which are designed to form a hat rack. In the central part of the wardrobe two tubes rand s are fixed between forwardly projecting brackets p and 9 so that v the inner ends of the rods n and, 0 penetrate into these tubes when the extensible bars are being pushed in. The hat-racks on the extensible bars are therefore also extensible.

A cupboard t for boots is arranged on the central portion of the wardrobe and closed by a roll cover which has ventilation holes.

Owing to the roll cover instead of doors no space is occupied in front of the wardrobe for opening the cupboard. The cupboard for boots prevents that garments hung on the wardrobe can hide the looking glass 1: as the guided in a dove-tailed guide of the back wall, and an interval between said extensible bars and the back wall of the wardrobe for accommodating the cloth-hooks on said extensible bars when these bars are pushed in.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
