The present invention relates to combined cribs and wardrobes and has for its main object the provision of a crib of Vthe type having ver tically slidable sides 'with a wardrobe positioned i below the plane of the mattress. ì A still further object of the present invention - is the provision of a combined crib and ward slats -I1 are affixed and upon which mattress YIII lis supported. Said rails I5 and slats I1 are positioned at substantially central portions of posts `I Il. . Panel I5 constitutes a movable side for the' crib and the same is adapted forvertical sliding movement being guided in that movement by _ of rods I9 ailixed to the oppositely dis-_Yrobe to constitute a single piece of furniture. In means posed faces of- one pair of posts l0, and said rods small: apartments it is usually necessary to pro the endsl of hori 10 l)V vide for an infant both a crib and a separate lare adapted to pass through It is to be understood. zontal rails of panel I5. wardrobe or dresser wherein infants' clothes may be kept.

It ìsto be- understood that the vertically slid is the provision of a wardrobe in combination Ving side panel I5 may be provided with usual 'with a crib of the type wherein one side is ver means, not shown in the drawing, for retaining tìcally- slldable, and in which wardrobe means the same in a raised position shown on Figs. 1 are provided whereby the sides may be vertically 20 4.A v moved without interference from the wardrobe. and Referring now to the wardrobe portion of the Y A still further object of the present invention II) is provided> is the provision of aA combined furniture piece, invention, each end pair of posts onpthe same plane including a-crib and wardrobe, with one or more lwith braces 20 which remain Spaced from each lsides of the crib_ slidable in vertical direction, with the longitudinal rail II. z5 with the wardrobe provided with a suitable pocket of said braces 20 and inv-parallel relation there are bars 2L- eachof which rigidly connects to receive 'therewithin a side ofthe crib when with with rail II rearwardly of the crib andwith rail the same is lowered. With the above general objects in view and 22 forwardly of the crib. For strengthening _the others that will appear as the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel 4con struction, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully‘ described, illus construction, each of said bars 2l is further con nected to its adjacent brace 20 by means of ‘an plurality of connecting arms 23. VSaid bars 2|,A rail 22 and armsv 23 constitute a ~.trated in the accompanying drawing and pointed -support vfor the wardrobe which is adapted to rest thereupon and to slide thereover, said ward out in the appended claims. A. x robe including bottom wall 24,~ side walls 25 and In the drawing forming a .part of this appli cation, and in which like designating characters 25 and end walls 21 and 28. Obviously, if pref- ' refer to corresponding parts throughout the erable, said bars 2I, rail 22 and arms 23 may be several views; î Fig. 1 is a. perspective view of the combined 40 crib and wardrobe; substituted by a single board attached in any suitable manner to posts I0 and which may con-_ ' stitute supporting means for the wardrobe. The Fig. 2 is a transverse cross-sectiqnal view . means for supporting said wardrobe shown is for throughthe device, along line 4_4 `of Fig. 1, showing one side of the crib lowered; Fig. 3 is a- cross-sectional view on a horizontal 45 plane, on line _3-3 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a transverse cross-sectional view, on illustration merely. y It is emphasized that the wardrobe terminates short-of the two pairs of oppositely disposed end posts I0 to provide clearance for rods I9, as is clearly illustrated on Fig. 3. 'Similarly the side walls V25 and 26 of the wardrobe lterminate on .a plane of the inner faces of the two oppositely disposed pairs of side posts so that the front wall 26 of the wardrobe would not interfere with the 50 vertical movement of side panel I5 and the rear wall 25 thereof would not interfere with side line l-lof Fig. 1 showing the sides of the crib in raised position. Referring to the'present invention in detail , there is shown therein a. combined crib and ward 50 robe, including four conventional corner posts I0. Said posts I0 are connected by longitudinal made mov'- , rail II, end panels I2 and I3, and side panels I4 panel Il if the latter is preferred to be seen on Figs. and I5. The end panels I2 and I3 include at able on verticalplane, as clearly 55 their lower ends transverse rails I5 to which bed 2, 3 and.V 4. 2 aioaae'r The wardrobe is further provided at one side thereof with a false side wall or panel 29 which is aillxed to vthe wardrobe proper by means of a spacing bar 20 which is in any suitable manner ailixed to the front side wall 29 of the wardrobe and is disposed with relation thereto substan tially on the plane of bottom wall’2l. Panel 29 is aillxed to said spacing bar 30 substantially at the lower portion of the former. Said spacing Y10 bar 90 terminates with the two ends of the ward robe so as not. to interfere with rods I9. Panel 29, however, extends beyond the terminals of the wardrobe and is as long as the crib, 4the outer end faces of said panel 29 remaining on the plane of the end faces of the adjacent faces of posts I0 as seen on Figs. l and 3. The upper edge of ' said panel 29 extends slightly above the upper end of the wardrobe proper and is substantially on the plane with the lower bar of side panel I5, 20 while the lower edge of said panel 29 extends be low bottom wall 24 so as to conceal rail 22 when the wardrobe is in a closed position with refer ence to the crib, as seen clearly on Figs. 2 and 4. From the hereinabove description it will be lv Ul seen that the front wall 29 of the wardrobe, pan el 29 and spacing bar 20 define and provide a pocket within which the adjacent front sliding side panel I5 is adapted to ilt when the same is lowered, the position illustrated on Fig. 2. When 30 in that position the lowermost horizontal bar of said side sliding panel I5 rests upon said spacing bar 30. When said sliding front side panel I5 is in that position, of course, the wardrobe could not be opened. When the same is raised, how ever, to ythe position illustrated in Fig. 4 the wardrobe may be'caused to be moved outwardly in‘order to have access thereto, and a pair of hand pieces 3I provide means whereby the ward robe may be manually slided upon its support and outwardly of the crib. If desired walls or panels may be provided within each pair of end posts IIJ and above braces 20 to conceal connecting arms 23 and the ends of the wardrobe. Also, if desired, guiding means may be provided in the support for the wardrobe whereby the latter may be prevented from shifting longitudinally oi the crib. These of course are mere details which are entirely op tional. ' _' ‘ As seen from the drawing the wardrobe is spaced away from the ñoor to provide access to the floor below the wardrobe for the purpose of sweeping. It is understood that I do not desire to be limited to the particular type of the crib illustrated in the drawing as obviously all types of cribs may be employed for use with the par ticular wardrobe herein shown. While there is described herein a preferred em - ~ bodiment of the present invention, it is neverthe less to be understood that minor changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed. . What I claim as new is: . . 1. 4In combination with a crib of the type hav ing a vertically slidable side. a wardrobe in cluding a front wall, means in said crib for sup porting said wardrobe and upon which the latter is adapted for sliding- movement i'or opening or closing the same with relation to the crib, a pan el in parallel relation with said wall, and connect ing means between said wardrobe and said panel. said wall and said panel providing a pocket with in which said sliding side when lowered is adapt ed tov ilt when said wardrobe remains in a closed position relative to the crib. 2. In combination with a crib of the type hav ing a vertically slidable side, a wardrobe posi tioned below the bed plane oi' the crib and sup ported therebelow for sliding movement for open ing or closing the same, and a panel aiiixed to the wardrobe and 'in a spaced 4relation therewith to define a pocket, said pocket being in alignment with said sliding side to receive the same there within when the same is lowered when the ward robe remains in a closed position. - 3. 'I‘he combination with a crib including i’ourV corner posts, rods on a pair of side posts, and a side panel mounted upon said rods for vertical sliding movement, of a wardrobe supported below the bed plane of the crib for sliding movement for closing or opening the same, said wardrobe being shorter than the length oi' the crib for pro viding clearance spaces between the ends thereof and the adjacent pairs of end posts for accommo dating said rods, and a panel ail‘lxed to said ward robe and' in a spaced relation therewith, said panel being longer than the wardrobe in order that the same may overlap the adjacent faces of the adjacent pair of side posts when the ward robe is in closed position with respect to the crib, said panel in conjunction with the wardrobe de fining a pocket within which the side panel of the crib is adapted to i'lt when the same is in a . lowered position upon said rods and when the wardrobe is in a closed position. 4. In- combination with a crib of the type hav ing a vertically slidable side, a wardrobe posi tioned below the bed plane of the crib and sup ported therebelow for sliding movement for open ing or closing the same, and a compartment in said wardrobe remaining inthe path of move ment of said vertically slidable side when said wardrobe is closed for receiving said vertically slidable side when the same is lowered when the wardrobe remains in a closed position.
