, SPRING OSCILLATING CHAIR Roscoe R. Marriott, Bingham Canyon, Utah Application August 9, 1945, Serial No. 609,784

1 Claim. (Cl. 155-77) My invention relates to lawn or beach chairs and has for its object to provide a new and highly efficient chair which maybe either used as 9.

I8 there is a brace rod 25 which braces the chair 1 base longitudinally and acts as a spring-support reclining oscillating chair or asan oscillating 1 chair insubstantially a vertical position.

A further object is to provide a chair which will be made entirely of tubular metal and which will be easily and quickly changeable from a, sit-up chair to a reclining chair. Y 7

A chair for lawn, porchor inside use which will be comfortable, and attractive in appearance and which, being spring controlled, may be used similar to a rocker or swing: and which may be quickly and easily changed from sitting to reclining position by the user.

These objects I accomplish with the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which similar numerals and letters of reference. indicate like parts throughout the several views and as described in the specification forming apart of this application and pointed out in the appended" claim.

In the drawings Figure 1' is a perspectiveview oi the chair in the sitting position.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the chair as used in a reclining position. 7

Figure 3 is a vertical enlarged section of the chair.

member. Onto this rod 25 there is a spring hook 26 to which the rear connecting rod 21 of a coil spring 28 is attached, and on the underside of the front cross piece 8 of the chair seat A there is a like hook 29 to which the loop on the end of the forward connecting rod 30 of the spring 28 is attached when the chair is in the sitting position as shown in Figure 3. The connecting rod 30 is passed between the cross bars I8 and I9 before it is attached to the hook 29 to give the spring sufiicient room for movement when oscillating the chair so that the spring will not strike the cross In the drawings I have shown the chair as having a single piece seat and back rest A, with the lower end 5 curved to fittheseat of the user and with the back slightly arched to fit the back. The top portion of the seat and back rest is made open and is closed by slipping a cloth cover or head rest 3 thereover inthe form of a sack or pillow case. The seat and back rest isniade of a rectangular tubular body having sides 6, and top end I with a cross piece 8 for the bottom, and spaced from-the top piece I there is another transverse bar 9. Between'the cross piece 8 and bar 9 I provide a flat sheet oi metal l0 curved to form the seat end 5. When the seat and back rest is reversed the head restthen acts as. a foot rest.

The base on which the seat and back A rests and is operated consists of a rectangular framework C having cross ends II and I2, and sides I3 and II. The sides l3 and H are formed with vertical portions l5, arcuate segments 16 and inclined portions ll all in one piece but formed to form an elevated forward area and an inclined rear base. Transversely across the vertical portions 15 there are spaced apart brace bars l8 and i8, the upper bar is carrying a tubular roller or pipe 20 therearound to act as a front roller for the chair seat A. Just about the top of the inclined portion l'l there are two spaced apart transverse rods 22 and 23, the upper rod 23 also carrying a tubular roller or pipe 24 for the upper back roller for supporting the chair seat A. Extending from the center of the rear cross end I: to the lower bar piece l8 or the roller 20 on the cross piece l9.

Another hook 3| is attached to the underside of the bar 9 to which the loop of the link 30 is attached when the chair seat has been reversed for use as a reclining chair as shown in Figure 2 of the drawings.

Having thus described my invention I claim:

A chair comprising an elongated rectangular framework having an inclined rear portion terminating in an upper arm portion; transverse braces spacing the arm portions apart; rollers on the two top transverse braces; chair seat having a back rest portion reversed slightly in curve, carried on the rollers for oscillation, said chair seat being adapted to be reversed and used asa reclining chair when desired; and a spring means attached to the rear lower end of the framework and to a hook-mounted on the underside of the chair seat to permit oscillation of the chair seat.
