GEORGE C. BOYEY, OF COLUMBUS, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF HIS RIGHT TO JAMES A. MARSH, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.
IMPROVEMENT IN SEWING-CHAIRS.
Speciication forming part ofLetters Patent No. 210,487, dated December 3, 1878; application filed v May 31, 1878.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, GEORGE C. BovEY, of Columbus, Franklin county, Ohio, have invented a new and useful Sewing-Chair, of which the following is a specification:
My invention consists in combining with an ordinary rocking-chair a pocket for the temporary reception of such garments as the seamstress may be engaged on, and a work-box to contain her spools, scissors, needles, Snc. This pocket is applied to the back of the chair, while the work-box is located beneath the seat of the same, and is so constructed as to be readily drawn out either to the right or left, said boX being preferably provided with compartments or divisions, as hereinafter more fully explained.
The annexed drawing is a perspective view of my improved sewing-chair, the pocket being shown open and the work-box partially drawn out.
A represents the main frame, B the seat, and C the back, of any approved form of chair, which chair is mounted on rockers D D.
Hinged, pivoted, or otherwise jointed to this back C, as at E E, is a frame, F, having an inner covering, G, and two side iiaps, H H', that connect said back and frame. These members F, G, and H H may be composed of any suitable materials.
I is a spring catch or hook or button, or any other convenient device for maintaining the pocket F G H H in its closed condition. Located beneath the seat B is a frame, J, containing a work-box, K, capable of being drawn out either to the right or left of said seat. This box may be furnished at each end with a handle or pull, L.
Furthermore, said receptacle K is divided in to vario us compartments for containing such articles as are generally kept in ladies workboXes. The advantage of the pocket is, that it affords a convenient pouch or receptacle for the temporary reception of any article of clothing, Sto., while in the course of manufacture. After the garment or other article has been dropped into this pocket, the latter is closed and locked with the catch I, thereby concealin g the contents of said receptacle F G H H. The sliding work-box K enables the occupant of the chair to have ready access to, all her sewing appliances, such as spools, &c., without leaving her seat.
I am aware it is not new to apply pockets to the sides of writing-chairs, &c., and to locate drawers beneath chair-seats, and therefore my claim is expressly limited to such pockets and drawers when combined with a rocking sewin g-chair in the manner herein illustrated and described.
I claim as my invention- As a new. article of manufacture, a sewingchair consisting, essentially, of the chair AB C, mounted on rockers D D', and having applied to its back C the pocket E E F G H H', a work-box, K, being located beneath seat B in such a manner as to be readily drawn out either to the right or left ot' said rocking-chair, as herein described, and for the purposes set forth.
In testimony of which invention I hereunto` set my hand.
