JAMES HO RUST, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO THE WHITE COMPANY,
OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, A CORPORATION OF OHIO.
To all whom it may concern: 7
Be it known that I, JAMES HOWARD RUST, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland in the county of Ouyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Ventilated Cushions, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of this invention is to provide a simple, neat and inexpensive ventilated cushion, especially adapted for use in auto mobiles, carriages and the like.
The invention resides in the use, substantially as shown, of flat tubes which are secured between two of the connected members of the cushion cover, and extend from the outside to the interior of the cushion, so as to permit air to flow freely into and out of the cushion.
In the drawing, Figure 1 is a perspective view of one end of the cushion equipped with this invention. Fig. 2 is a sectional View through that part of the cushion in which said flat tubes are secured, the sections going through one of the tubes. Fig. 3 is a view like Fig. 2, except that the section does not go through one of the tubes. Fig. 4 is a magnified perspective view of one of the flat ventilating tubes.
Referring to the parts by letters, represents the padded cushion seat. which is provided with a tut'ted top covering a of cloth or leather, or other suitable material.
Ii represents a vertical strip of similar material which forms the front, sides and back of the cushion, concealing the springs.
C represents a corded strip of similar niatcrial. The edges of this strip are placed between the inturued lower edge of the cover a, and the iii-turned upper edge of the strip B,and all are stitched together.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Sept, 21, 1909, Application filed February 12, 1908. Serial No. 415,478.
I Cushions above described have been in use tubes for years.
D, D, represent flat ventilatin which are secured, in substantially t e position shown, between the corded strip G and the in-turned lower edge of the top cover (1, extending from the outside of the cushion to the interior thereof, thereby furnishing a plurality of open passages through. which air may flow freely into and out of the cushion. There may be as many of these tubes as are desired. They may be glued in the position shown; or, if preferred, each may have perforated ears (1 by which they may be sewed to one or the other of the pieces between which they are placed.
The described construction is simple, efticient, and cheap. The ventilating tubes are hardly noticeable, because all except their upper outer ends are concealed, and because, moreover, the padded seat partly overhangs said outer ends. For these reasons the described cushion is very attractive by comparison with ventilated cushions heretofore used.
Having described my invention, I claim:
In a cushion, the combination of the front strip B, with a padded seat, the to piece of which passes inside of an is secured to the top portion of said stri and ventilating tubes secured betv'een sai stri and cover piece and establishing communication with the interior of said cushion.
In testimony whereof, I hereunto'afiix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
