FOLDABLE TABLE
John Kowalski, New York, N. Y.
Application November 30, 1936, Serial No. 113,487
4 Claims. (Cl. 311-63)
The present invention relates to foldable tables
presenting a structure which may be converted
from a table or cabinet of a minimum size to
that of a table having a top of an appreciably
larger area.
The primary object of the invention is to pro
vide a table structure which in folded condition
presents a compact cabinet form serving as a
small article of furniture and including a series
10 of drop leaves associated with the table structure
so. as to be readily extensible to form a table top
of large area which may be employed for ex
ample, as a card table.
Another object resides in the provision of a
collapsible table including a standard or base
D
having a series of wing members swingably
mounted thereon, and a series of drop leaves
hingedly carried on the wing members to be sup
ported by same in extended position, the entire
structure being so arranged as to be foldable into
a compact cabinet form.
A further object is to- provide means associated
with the foldable table by which the various top
supporting elements may be simultaneously
moved by actuation of one of the elements there
by to facilitate enlargement or folding of the
table structure.
The invention will be fully and comprehensive
ly understood from a consideration of the fol—
30 lowing detailed description when read in connec
tion with the accompanying drawings which form
part of the application.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the device in ex
tended condition for use as a tab-1e, one of the
top members being partly folded.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the device com
pletely folded, portions thereof being broken away
to illustrate the connection of the extensible
members.
Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view of the table struc
ture partly extended and illustrating the pre
ferred means for co-actively extending the top
supporting elements.
Fig. 4 is a sectional view partly in elevation,
45
taken on line 4-—4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a perspective view similar to Fig. 2
but illustrating a modi?ed form of the invention.
Fig. 6 is a plan view of the modi?ed form of
50 table in extended condition; and
Fig. '7 is a horizontal sectional view taken below
the top of the table shown in Fig. 5, and illus
trating the foldable members of same in folded
55
and extended positions.
In the preferred embodiment of the invention
illustrated in the drawings same comprises a
central structure or standard to which is hinged a
series of swingable members or wings, the latter
including a series of drop leaves hingedly mount
ed thereon to form' an extended table of large
area.
Referring to the drawings for a detailed de
scription thereof, the numeral 5 indicates the
central structure or standard presenting a polyg
onal form, preferably square in cross section, and 10
supporting thereon a top 6. For each vertical
side of the standard 5 is provided a swingable
member or wing l hingedly mounted on a vertical
axis preferably to the corner of the standard 5.
To the top edge of each of the wings ‘I is hinged 15
a drop leaf 8 so that same may be folded against
the wing ‘I when the table structure is to be col
lapsed.
With the device in folded condition as illus
trated in Fig. 2 the several drop leaves 8 are each 20
folded down against the respective wings ‘I, the
latter being extended from the standard 5. The
wings ‘I are then each folded against the respec
tive sides of the standard 5 to form a compact
structure in which the drop leaves 8 are concealed
within the enclosure of the Wings 7 and the latter
de?nes a wall structure in conformity to the out
line of the top 6.
To extend the table to the form shown in Fig. 1
the series of wings ‘I are each folded out to be 30
extended substantially at right angles to the re
spective sides of the standard 5. The bottom
corner of each of the wings ‘I is projected to pro
vide a foot To for contact with the ?oor in sup
port of the extended table. Each of the drop 5
leaves 8 is raised to horizontal position so that
its free end rests on the top edge of the adjoin
ing wing T; To secure this engagement suitable
means are provided such as a pin 9 extending
from the bottom of each drop leaf 8 to be re 40
ceived in a notch [0 formed in the wing 1. In
this manner, the several drop leaves 8, in ex
tended condition to form an enlarged table, are
disposed relative to each other so that a longi
tudinal edge of one of the leaves 8 abuts an end 4.5
of the adjoining leaf 8, the series of leaves so ex
tended presenting an annular surface completely
surrounding the central top 6 and in coplanar
relation to same.
To facilitate extension and collapsing of the
table structure the device illustrated in Figs. 3
and 4 is provided. To the bottom area of the
standard 5 is rotatably mounted a disc I I carried
on a stud l2 secured to the standard 5.
To the
periphery of the disc II is connected a series of 55
2
2,110,068
links IS, the respective free ends of which are
each secured to one of the Wings 7 preferably at
the bottom edge thereof. It will be apparent
that by actuation of one of the wings ‘I, the disc
M will be rotated and thereby the remaining
wings will be coactively moved so that the exten
sion or folding of the table may be accomplished
with appreciable facility.
The modi?ed form of the foldable table illus
10 trated in Figs. 5, 6 and 7 is substantially similar
nor to the precise construction described and,
therefore, such changes and modi?cations may
be made therein as do- not affect the spirit of the
invention nor exceed the scope thereof as ex
pressed in the appended claims.
What is claimed as new is:
1. A foldable table comprising in combination
a standard, a top of polygonal outline supported
on said standard, a series of wings pivotally
mounted for swinging on a vertical axis on said
to the ?rst form of the invention except that the ‘standard, and a series of leaves hingedly ‘con 10
wings or swingable elements and the drop leaves nected to the respective Wings and adapted to be
hingedly mounted to the wings are arranged to disposed in coplanar relation to said top, the free
fold against opposed sides of the standard, thus end of each of said leaves resting on an adjoin
15 permitting the use of the interior of the cabinet in'g wing in abutting relation to an adjoining leaf. 15
for containing books or like articles. The nu
2. A foldable table comprising in combination

a standard, a top of polygonal outline supported
ture or standard of the modi?ed form, the same on said standard, a series of wings pivotally
being constructed to present recesses l6 and/or, mounted for swinging on a vertical axis on said
20 drawers H for containing sundry articles. The
standard, and a series of leaves hingedly con 20
front and back Walls of the standard l5 are ex
nected to the respective wings and adapted to
tended laterally as indicated at l8 to form re , be disposed in coplanar relation to said top, the
cesses it at opposed sides of the standard l5.
On

ing leaf,yeach of said leaves having a detent ex
stantially as illustrated in Fig. 6.
in an adjoining wing. '
On each of the
wings 20 and 2! is hingedly mounted, preferably
to the top edge thereof, a drop leaf 22.
In extending the cabinet shown in Fig. 5 for
use as a table as illustrated in Fig. 6, each of the
Wings 25) and 2| are swung out to- project sub
stantially at right angles from the respective
3. A foldable table comprising in combination .a
standard of substantially rectangular cross sec
tion de?ning a pair of adjacent corners, a pair 30
of wings hingedly mounted to the respective
corners and adapted to be swung into overlapping
relation therebetween, and a pair of leaves ?ex
ibly connected to the top edge of the respective
position with'the central top 24 carried on the
in abutting, coplanar relation to an adjoining
being disposed to rest on the adjoining wing
thereby forming an enlarged table top.
It will be apparent by reference to Figs. 5 and
7 that with the table structure in folded condi
tion, the extensible wings and drop leaves are
all nested within the respective recesses IS. The
Wings 2! form a concealing cover over the re
45 spective recesses l9 having at their free edges a
lip 23 extending from same to completely enclose
the folding members within the standard I5.
It is to be understood that this improvement
is capable of extended application and is not
50 con?ned to the exact showing of the drawings

vertical surface of the standard l5. Each of the
drop leaves 22 is thereafter raised into coplanar
standard 15, the free end of the drop leaves 22

4l. A foldable table comprising in combination
a standard of substantially rectangular cross
section having opposed sides, a plurality of pairs 40
of wings hingedly mounted to opposed edges of
the respective sides, each pair of wings being
adapted to be swung into overlapping relation
over said side, and a leaf ?exibly connected to
the top edge of each of said wings in juxtaposi 45
tion therewith and adapted to be swung to hori
zontal position thereon in abutting coplanar re
lation to an adjoining leaf so as to- form an an
nulus surrounding said standard.
