chf different-"type of chair. In addition," thef-foot' rests arenon-adjustable, so that depending-on the adjustment of the chair, the person to improvements in the chair can Ice-raised or lowered to its limits ofvertical adjustments without raising or lowering the stand; and a special adjustment prop is provided tosupport the front portion of the stand when the chair is tilted when it is in an elevated posit'icin. The stand is quickly attachable -to and detachable from the chair and retains its relative' position irrespective of vertical adjustmentser the chair;

*The objectsfand advantages of the invention Fir'st,";to provide a shoe shine stand which is adjustable-to fit any barber chair.

The bar 13-; has anintegral partitionedbox 25 to hold shoe'shine materials; and a base 2i spans the space between the side panels when the panelsare adjusted to their closest-position,

Mounted onthe backs through which they are slidably held lay-screws 35' entering thelugs 36;

Angles 31 form shoulders for carrying the weight of the stand, and mounted on top'of each ofthese' angles is a bar 38 terminating at the rearward end in a lug or stop 39. Mounted on each 'of these bars'is a'shoe 40 which is "channel" shaped to freely rest orithe' bar 38, and having a lug 4| projecting'inwardly from the lower portionof the channel leg oneach side, -and'-vvith the web -42 of the channel cut out at the rearward end asindicated at 431:0 provide a passage ati I9 and'ZU are loosened, the side panelsaread justed against the bracket arms 49 of the chair foot rest, and n the nuts adjusted and tightened,

" aeriasii f 33 and 34 drawn outwardly, and when struck or 15V forced from the outside they will move in as in:- dicated at 34 to engage the foot-rest brackets and latch in that position.
