DESIGN FOR A BENT-WOOD CHAIR-SEAT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 29,235, dated August 16, 1898.
Application filed July 1B, 1898. Serial No. 686,295 Term of patent 14 years.
T0 afZZ whom it ntai/ concern.-
Be it known that I, FRED A. DENNETT,a citizen of the United States, residing at Sheboygan, in the county of Sheboygan and State of IVisconsin, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Bent-Wood Chair- Seats; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.
In the said drawings, Figure l is a plan View. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal vertical seetion on the line f3 2 of Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section on the line 3 3 of Fig. l; and Fig. l is a front elevation, looking from the line 4 4 of Fig. l, of a bentwood chair-seat embodying my new design.
My design relates to the new and original shape or conigu ration of the article.
The leading or essential feature consists in the unitary design for a bent-wood chair-seat made the subject ot illustration, comprising the peculiar and novel shape of the top or upper portion A thereof, which along the rear end and along the sides of the top is of substantially the same horizontal plane or level. Just forward of the flat or level rear portion of the top n there is a depression on a semicircular line at the rear extending between the points Z) l), the shape of this depression at the longitudinal center being shown as extending froni the point b to about the point c', and thence at the said center the top A rises upwardly on the line of a shallow ogee to the extreme forward pointd', as best shown in Fig. 2. The form of this depression transversely near the rear of the seat on the line 3 3 between the points c o is best shown in Fig 3. The sides at the front of the top at d d are of substantially the same elevation and plane surface as at the rear a; but between the front central point d' and the side points d d on each side thereof the said front of the top A is formed on rounded concave lines, having their greatest points of depression at e e and thence rounding upwardly to the outer points d (Z and similarly rounding upwardly to the central front point d', all as best shown in Fig. 4. The front corners of said top A (best shown in Fig. 1) are formed on rounded convex lines between the points fgfg, the front line (shown at the left in Fig. l) following the line of two ogees, united at the point h, between the point g and the centralpoint rl', on each side of the latter. The two front depressions (on each side of the front central elevation, which finds its highest point at (1') extend backward and blend into the first-named semicircular rear depression.
Minor features of this design comprise inward-curved concave lines between the points j in the side edges of the top A and a projection of the continuous ogee-shaped front of the said top A over the correspondinglyshaped front piece B of the su pportin g-frame of the seat.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The design for a bent-Wood chair-seat, as herein shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand, at Port lVashington, in the county of Ozaukee and State of \Visconsin, in the presence of two witnesses.
FRED A. BENNETT.
