Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. '7', 1905.
Application filed March 25, 1904. Serial No. 200,059.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, CHARLES M. BLANo and W'ILLIAM L. MITCHELL, citizens of the United States, residing at Knoxville, in the county of Knox, State of Tennessee, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Kitchen Tables; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to tables, and more particularly to that class designed for use in kitchens and other places Where various commodities are desired to be stored convenient for use upon the table, the object of the invehtion being to provide aconstruction wherein various receptacles will be contained beneath the table in such positions as to be ready of access and so arranged that when not in use they will present an unbroken or ornamental surface.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be understood from the following description.
In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, Figure 1 is a perspective view'showing the table with the bins at one side and the drawer and bread-board at the same side in open position. Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the opposite side of the table with the drawer and doors at that side open. Fig. 3 is an elevation of the upper portion of a bin. Fig. 4: is a vertical section taken longitudinally through the table.
Referring now to the drawings, there is shown a table comprising a frame including the legs 5, connected by the top rails 6 and the bottom rails 7, said bottom and top rails at each side of the table being connected by a pair of uprights 8. Upon the rails 7 between the uprights 8 is a floor-section 9, which is designed to receive and support a drawer 10, which slides between' the upright from side to side of the table, said drawer at one end being formed to cover the outer faces of the uprights 8, so that when the drawer is pushed in the space between the uprights is completely closed at that side of the table.
Above and parallel with the floor-section 9 is a floor-section 11, secured between the uprights 8, and which supports a second drawer 12, which is slid into position between the uprights from the opposite side of the table from the drawer 10, this drawer 12 having one end 13, which covers the faces of the uprights 8 at that side of the table when the drawer is pushed in excepting for a slight space at the top, as illustrated. Above the drawer 12, secured to the uprights and extending from side to side of the table, are guide-rails 13, between which and the top 14, of the table is slidably disposed a bread-board 15, the top rail of the table at one side being cut away flush with the guide-rails to permit of movement of the bread-board into and out of position beneath the table-top.
At one side of the table between the uprights 8 and each end of the table there is arranged a bin 16, these bins being hinged at their front lower edges to the corresponding bottom side rails of the table. The body portions of these bins have their upper side edges arched, so that they may pass beneath and close to the bottom of the top rail of the table at that side of the table, the front of each bin extending above the sides thereof,so that when the bin is in closed position this upper portion of the front will lie against the top rail of the table at that side of the table, and the front of the bin will thus close the entire space betweenthe top of the table and the bottom rail and the adjacent upright 8 and leg of the table. The bins do not extend transversely through the table, but only so far as the diagonal stops 18, against which they rest when in closed position,and between these diagonal stops and the opposite side of the tables from the bins there are formed cupboards or closets, as illustrated.
What is claimed is A table comprising legs having upper and lower side and end rails connected thereto, a top upon the legs and upper rails, a bottom upon the lower rails, downwardly-tapered bins hinged at their bottom edge to the side rail of In testimony whereof we aflix our signatures in presence of two wltnesses.
