ROBERT ARCHER AND GEORGE W. ARCHER, OF ROCHESTER, N. Y.
DESIGN FOR BARBERS AND DENTISTS CHAIRS.
Specification forming part of Design No. 6,648,
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that we, ROBERT W. ARCHER and GEORGE W. ARCHER, both of the city of Rochester, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have invented a new Design for Barber and Dental Chairs; and we do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same:
This design relates to the back, the sides, and the bottom of the chair.
The back A ismade nearly square or rectangular in outline, but preferably a little Wider at the base than at the top. The top corners a a are rounded o on a small circle, and in the center of the back, opposite the junction of the arms, the back is made slightly concave, as shown at b, while near the base opposite the seat, a very slight reverse or convex curve is given, as shown at c. Transversely, or across the back, at any given point, the line is plain or straight, or as nearly so as the upholstering will permitl This form of the` back presents a pleasing appearance to the eye, and is preferable to the round and convex forms heretofore in use. The sides of the chair proper are made open, as shown'at B. The arm O, from its junction with the back, is curved down, as shown at d. An offset, f, is made, and then the arm extends straightforward. The side J ofthe seat extends straight` forward from its junction with the base. At the front the arm-standard D has an ogee or reverse curve g i at the bottom and center, and an outward curve, b, at the top, which is surmounted by an animals (preferably a lions) head, la. The open sides, with the arm, seat, and standard, made in the ornamental manner described, also presents a pleasing apdated May 13, 1873; application filed April 30, 1873.
pearance to the eye. The stationary base or support for the chair proper has an opening, E, in each side, and two bars or arms, G G, which connect with the legs. The opening at the ends of the bars is rounded at top and bottom, as shown at m m, and gradually decreases toward the center by a gentle curve or angle. At the center the bars are made enlarged vertically, and have swells n n, which meet in a depressed groove, p. The margin of the arms next the opening-may have ornamental work, r, or carving of any desired kind.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new is- 1. The design for the back ot'a barber or dental chair, consisting of the reetan guiar form of the back, with round upper corners a a., concave and convex curves b c, and plane surface across, as herein shown and described.
2. The design for the open sides of the chair, consisting of the straight arm and seat C, and the curves g h i of the standard D, and
` the animals head k surmountin g the standard,
as shown and described.
3. The design for the base or support for the chair, consisting of the bars G G, with the opening E, formed with the curved ends m m, and central swells n n, as shown and described.
In witness whereof we have hereunto signed our names in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
